NEW FOOT BALL RULES
Alterations Made for Government
of the Gridiron for 1902
Notes About the
The official football mlcB of '02 differ
greatly from those In effect last year
In the matter of the exchange of goals
and the penalty for offside playing.
As before, the captains of the con
testing teams will toss up a coin be
fore tho beginlng of the game, the
winner being permitted to have hla
choice of kicking off or choosing goal.
The rules In force last year compelled
a change of goals at the end of the
first half. This year every try at goal
following a touch down means a change
of goals. Such a change will also be
made after every goal from the field.
Tho team loBlng the point will make
the next klckoff.
The penalty for offside play has been
made much lighter, the offending team
being subjected to a loss of five yards,
instead of tho loss of the ball as
Just whether or not the changes
made will be a benefit to the .game is
hard to determine until they are put
in force. The change in the matter
of goals seems to have been made be
cause of the changeability of tho wind,
which often gives one team the benefit
when sides are changed but once dur
ing the game.
Feet Ball Notes.
Minnesota did her first rescret prac
tice work a week ago today. It looks
as though they intended to play foot
ball. The teams lined up last night for
the first practice scrimmage In spite
of the rain. Some good playing was
done and the men showed up well
Tho football squad was strengthened
last evening by the addition of the
Englehart brothers, who played on
the Omaha team last year. Both are
In Minnesota the old veterans get
out and show the new men how to
-play ball. Bo far Drain seems to be
the only old man In Nebraska wiling
fi heipUBk fhe new team along.
Reports from MadlBon Indicate that
eight of last .year's verslty will return
while a large number of new men are
available. Th old men are Juneau,
capt; Abbott, Skow, Driver, Lerum,
Haumerson, Holstein and Fogg. All
of these men are reliable players, while
Long1, bud. fullback and Moffatt, sub.
halfback, are fully up to varsity stand
ard. With these men back King should be
able to put up a great team, quite the
equal of last year's.
Driver, the fullback, was injured by
a fall and was laid up for many weeks
but It Is expected that he will be able
to get Into the game before many days
have passed. Exchange.
Battalion Falls In.
The cadet battalion formed last even
ing for the first time this year under
the command of Major Burke Hall.
The old men were assembled In their
companies of last year and the new
recruits wore lined up around the ar
mory for sizing up. Tho men were
apportioned off then to the various
companies according to size, following
the general custom. The rosters of
the companies were made up. Some
hundred and thirty new men appeared
at battalion formation. Tho number
will undoubtedly be Increased because
many were unaware of the organization
of tlie cadets at bo early a date. The
impression has generally received cro
dence that cadet organization would be
postponed for a few days. Special or
ders were read and a part of the book
of cadet instructions. Adjutant Crooks
acted In this capacity for the first
time. The battalion will bo put to ac
tive work in tho setting up exercises as
soon as tho weather will allow.

SCHOOL Of MEDICINE
Dr. Glfford Speaks to Medical
Students Chancellor Wel
comes the NeW De
partment. Owing to the inclemency of tho
weather yesterday the student attend
ance at the opening exercises of the
College of Medicine was small. Dr.
Glfford of Omaha, dean of tho college,
addressed the meeting. The train on
which the doctor came from Omaha
was late and Chancellor Andrews filled
In the time with an appreciated talk.
Dr. Andrews insisted that tho estab
lishing of the new department of tho
university means more than wo may
suppose. It means a wider field for
the university and greater Interest in
science. It was the Intention from the
first to establish a department of med
icine in the university, but for some
cause the matter was dropped, and,
even at this late date, the undertaking
would have been out of the question
had It not been for tho co-operation of
the Omaha Medical College.
Besides being an advantage to the
university the new college represents
the growing Interest in science. Medi
cal science has advanced more In the
past twenty-five years than any other
branch of science, and, although the
record of the university has been no
ble In science, that department will
now be greatly enlarged.
Dr. Glfford, when ho arrived, spoke
chiefly of things of Interest to those
beginlng tho study of medicine. Be
ginners were asked to not become'dls
couraged because the end of tho course
might seem distant. The doctor advised
the students to associate with medical
men during the long vacations.
tUIn speaking of tho kind of men
who are naturally adapted to the pro
fession of medicine Dr. Glfford said
that the most brilliant doctors are
often failures as physicians because
they have not the heart that ought to
attend the science. The physician, he
declared, must have the confidence of
the patient in order to attain success.
The speaker advised beginners not to
contemplate sticking to any one
"pathy," because osteophathy, homeo
pathy and other schools have their
good points. The physician should use
what he finds to be an effective reme
dy. Dr. Glfford discouraged the idea of
attending large medical colleges in
preference to amaler ones. The- latter
have many advantages. The classes
are smaller, which enables the Btu
dents and professors to come into
closer contact and fellowship. Conse
quently, graduates of smaller colleges
often have greater success than do
those who come from the eastern
Deans Ward and Bessey were called
upon and spoke briefly of the efficiency
of the Omaha Medical College and es
pecially commended the faculty.
Chancellor Andrews delivered h!4
opening address to tho students of
tho university Saturday morning. He
roviewed the political situation as re
gards trusts and imperialism and se
verely arraigned tho pessimist for his
views on the subject of these evils.
Ho feela confident that tho republic Is
destined to a glorious future In spite
of the Influence of these two "arch dra
gons." In callng Cassandra down Dr. An
drews says: "Conditions may be quite
as forbidding as the most despairing of
you allege, and yot not preclude Joyous
hope. If the republic's burdens are
not lightened the republic will go
down, but they will be lightened. If
patriotism, courage, and common sense
havo left the American people, our
government can not remain free, but
these qualities have not loft us." The
Chnncellor cited oight maxims which
the pessimist forgets, chief among
which aro: (1) Do not expect too much
of life, this world Is not heaven. (2)
The funderaental realities of the uni
verse; God, force, nature, Including
human nature, do not substantially
change. (3) Evils often appear to
exist, but In reality do not exist, (4)
Actual evils often exist but are not
so grave as they seem.
Dr. AndrewB, In accordance with
public opinion, deems imperialism and
tho trusts tho two blackest thunder
clouds In the sky. Of Imperialism he
takes a hopeful view. Ho admits that
grave problems confront the United
States In the government of her new
possessions, but pointing to Cuba and
Hawaii as examples, prophesies that
every community under United States
sovereignty "as soon as It comes to
possess a reasonable measure of civic
ability, may be sure of governmental
autonomy perfectly satisfactory to It
self, either like Hawaii, under our flag,
or like Cuba, out from under our flag."
It were better If all the new possessions
were Incorporated Into the union and
especially If this Is done with the
will of these territories. Tho objec
tion urged against such expansion is
that undesirable foreigners will be
given a chance to compete with the
American workingman. Chancellor
Andrews believes that the fear is
groundless. England has not suffered
so, he says. Millions of negroes and
Malays are barred by nothing but the
expense of steerage from flocking to
England to displace British labor, but
they do not do so. It Is possible that
some Chinese and Japanese already
resident of the Philippines would
come to the states, but further immi
gration could be prevented W the)
same law that keeps the Chinese out
If republics are to multiply, we must
be missionaries in these new lands. Old
world monarchies will not keep out
of Oceanica because we do. It Is our
duty to get into the work and make
the world republican.
In the trusts Chancellor Andrews
sees three serious dangers, monopolies
may raise the selling price of their
