Back Team Leaves
The 'varsity and second teams linod
up last night for the fiercest practice
of the season. Drain went in as quar
ter for the scrubs and Tohin played
center Johnson appeared on the field
for the first time, and played end on
These men proved a aluable addi
tion to their strength, and it was only
after thirty minutes of the swiftest
and hardest kind of playing that the
'varsity piled up three touchdowns
against them. Briggs played right
tackle during the first half oT the game,
his place being taken later by Captain
A telegram from Spencer Cortelyou
states that he will be on hand this
morning leady to fill his old position
of end. "Cort" gained the reputation
last year of being the swiftest and
surest end in the west, and his return
will be a cause of great rejoicing on
the gridiron. Hell has been working
out at quarter, and will be ready to
till that position, should Benedict be
come disabled. Both are good at punt
ing, and the clasB of work put up by
them last night is gratifying to coaches
The entire squad was photographed
last evening, after which the members
of the first team lined up before the
camera. A notice has been posted in
the gymnasium to the effect that those
who hae been playing in the first
scpiad shall have theh'Telves meas
ured for suits, not later than October
Xth. A second notice orders them to
prepare tor the. Colorado trip. The
men who leave for Boulder tonight
are: Folliner. Westover Molony, Borg,
Ringer. Wilson, Shcdd, Benedict, Ben
der, Mickel, Bell, Eager, Tohin, Briggs
and Englehart. It has not yet been
learned over which road the team will
go, as transportation is sent from Col
orado, but they will in all probability
leave this evening, arriving in Boulder
Friday morning. This gives them one
day to become acclimated. Considering
the great difference in the altitude of
Lincoln and Boulder, one day seems
hardly sufficient, but under the cir
cumstances it will have to suffice.
The 'varsity has been working out
well, and no fears In regard to the
result of the game are expressed.
The names of Mickel and Benedict
have been added to the list at the train
According to an exchange, the base
ball team of Princeton will have F. O.

MORE ROOM NEEDED
Board of Regents Hold Meeting
and Decide Upon Budget
for the Coming
The regents of the university met
Tuesday afternoon to consider the
budget for the coming year. Regents
Rich and Calkins were not present. As
the legislature meets this winter and
the univeisity budget will come before
its consideration, preparation Is being
made for It. The university has grown
so in the last two years that the pres
ent accommodations are Insufficient
and the expenses can scarcely be cov
ered by the present appropriations.
The board will ask the legislature for
$250,000 to be expended in new build
ings and equipment at the farm and
upon the campus. The farm Improve
ments will require $100,000. The build
ings for the most part at the farm be
long properly to the experiment sta
tion and the agriculturists do not have
enough room to carry on their work.
Two years ago plans were well for
mulated for the spending of nbout
$100,000 upon the campus. The allow
ance was made by the legislature, but
for some reason or other was vetoed
by Governor Dietrich. Tills action put
the university Just so much behind
the demands made upon it constantly.
The amount covering this expenditure
has been in the hands of the state
treasurer for some time and is only
waiting an appropriation to put it to
use. It will be used In the creation
of a building for physics and one for
the executive offices and large lecture
The board easily sees the necessity
of constructing buildings with larger
rooms to accommodate large classes.
At present some classes are with the
utmost difficulty divided so that all
may take the lecture work under the
same professor. It is aimed by (The
regents to provide better facilities and
more room for the law school. The
whole north wing of main hall may
be put to the use of the law school.
The present one mill levy provides for
about $182,000 and will be asked for en
tirely to cover running expenes. The
only money asked for outBido of the
amounts on hand and that obtained by
the levy Is that to be expended at the
A special committee of horticultur
ists appeared before the regents, ask
ing that more accommodations be
placed at the disposal of students in
horticulture, Including more green
house space for winter study and more
rooms for tree culture and recitation
work. Provision will probably be made

ceremonies Tuesday night. Wlllard
Kimball, jr., Fred Hurtz, Harry Whar

Watching the Comet.
The classes In astronomy are now
watching with the telescope the little
comet which Is traveling across the
constellation Cassiopeia from night to
night. It was discovered at Lick ob
servatory September 1st, and was then
invisible to the naked eye. It has been
Increasing slightly In brightness and
Is now barely visible to the eye If you
know exactly where to look, appearing
like a faint, slightly hazy star.
On the next public evening, which
will be next Monday, the comet will be
the object shown through the tele
scope. The comet will continue to Increase
In brightness slightly for a week or
two, but will finally be lost to view by
Its approach to the sun. It will pass
the sun on November 23d.
Ross Addresses Students.
Dr. Ross addressed the Btudonts at
chapel yesterday upon the effects of the
South African war. He said that the
improvement in weapons had changed
the method of warfare. Formerly
armies contended at shorter range. He
Insisted that there was a great advan
tage in long range weapons. The pos
sibility of killing an approaching en
emy was much greater if it was in
range fifteen minutes than It was if
it was in range five minutes.
It has been estimated that one hun
dred men using modern weapons could
defend a position against nine hun
dred In an attacking party. Dr. Ross
said the effect of this would be to ren
der small nations more secure.
A small country like Switzerland
need not fear Germany or England.
A system similar to the feudal system
of former times 1j likely again to pre
vail. In commenting upon the Increase
and decrease of population in different
countries, Professor Ross said that In
countries where a democratic govern
ment prevailed the birth rate and also
the deatli rate was decreasing. He as
signed as a reason for the former, that
where there was opportunity for ad
vancement on the basis of merit pa
rents raised fewer children and gave
them more advantages. The decrease
In the death rate was attributable to
better sanitary conditions.
A movement la being set on foot by
some of the Influential Episcopalians
in Nebraska looking to the erection
of a structure near the university on
T street, which will be made the head
quarters of all student members of the
Episcopal church, who will be organ
ized Into a club. Bishop Williams, of
this diocese, strongly favors the plan
and Chancellor Andrews has expressed
his approval. If present plans do not
miscarry the building will be construct
ed during the coming year and the club
organized at the opening of the uni
versity next fall.
So far seventy students have regis
tered in the Y. M. C. A. Bible courses.
