SCRUBS DO GOOD WORK

Big Crowd on the
Football practice last evening was
Bnappy and spirited; the kind that
brings about good results. The bleach
era were fllled with students and bus
Inessnien and they cheered the teant
when good plriys Were made. The
manner in which the scrubs went after
the veraity was indeed gratifying. They
are determined to earn that dinner
at the "Lincoln."
Both teams had stiff signal practice
beforo the lineup. The first part of
tho practice was taken up with a kick
ing game In order to give the men
"wind," and practice in blocking. The
teams were worked hard but they re
sponded nobly and did good work when
it came to rushing the ball. Although
the scrubs fought bravely the varsity

Si Mason played left tackle on the
first team. He is an earnest worker
and will undoubtedly make a valuable
man. Benedict and Thorpe did good
work at quarter. Cortelyou was at
his old position and did some excellent
WQrk, especially while running with
the ball. Jim Bell was out again and
played half. Englehart watched the
practice from the side lines. He will be
out in a week or more.
The scrubs are to be commended for
tho enthusiasm and zeal which they
manifest. The assistant coaches have
been working hard to develop a good
second team and their efforts have not
been In vain. "While all of the scrubs
played hard the work of Hazen Myers
and Walton was very noticeable.
Today a mass meeting will be held
and it is expected that Memorial hall
will be fllled to overflowing.
After the Game.
Boulderltea will try to look uncon
cerned and say that they expected
something worse, but a careful ob
server can see that the majority of the
students and supporters of the team
really expected something better. The
best team won the game, and Colorado
should feel satisfied because the score
was no higher.
The Nebraska team was loyally en
tertained and treated with the greatest
courtesy throughout the entire stay.
The Boulder players are gentlemen,
and deserving of the highest praise.

Only one fault is to be found, and
that Is In the way the Denver press
misrepresented the weight of the Corn
huskera. Of the four dally papers,
one one, the Denver Post, gave a con
servative estimate of the weight of
the team. One paper, the Republican,
gave out the following astonishing
"Nebraska furnished the Boulder
people with a list of weights calculated
to drive ordinary teams to despair. On
the line 185 pounds was the least any
player would admit, while one coyly
admitted to weighing in at 228. This
latter fairy-like young man is said to
have come all the way from Mexico to
take part in the game." Now the truth
of the matter is that there was very
little difference in the average weight
of the two teams. Four of the moun
taineers team weighed between 170 and
180. Four more will go In at 160-170,
and the others will probably average
Colorado has been handicapped by
lack of outdoor practice, and by the
disabling of her men. The continual
rainfall during the week previous to
the game prevented practice and for
three days the eleven had not been
on the field.
Nebraska excelled in kl king, not so

THOMPSON AT CHAPEL
Democratic Nominee for Governor
Talks to Students Duties
and Responsibilities of
The addresB of Hon. W. H. Thomp
son at convocation yesterday drew an
unusually large attendance of students.
A number of people from the city
were present also to hear the fusion
candidate for governor talk.
The Bubject of the address was not
given but the speaker said that he was
asked to speak about a minute. The
theme, however, was on the duties and
responsibilities of the individual.
"The question," said Judge Thomp
son, "Ib what are the lawB of nature
and what the laws of our land." Every
person Is alone in his own sphere. His
thoughts and his actions are peculiarly
his own and they can not be duplicat
ed by anybody on the face of the earth.
Furthermore, for each person there is
a place that he ought to fill, because
no one else can meet the requirement.
No two persons have the same equip
ments or the samo thoughts. There
are no twins in poetry, prose or in
oratory. Each man must pave his
own way and develop his own person
ality. He Is like a ship at sea alone.
Each independent thought or act,
asserted the speaker, helps to build
for the individual a monument. It is
the radical man whom the world hon
ors and follows and obeys. He who,
dares to think and act Independently
becomes the great man of his com
munity or state.
Each ago brings to the people new
responsibilities and new problems to
be settled. The rising generation has
before it deep and reaching questions
to be considered. Organized capital
and labor, the Panama canal and the
many difficulties involved, new phases
of the Monroe doctrine, these questions
are to be disposed of.
Mr. Thompson declared that our na
tion has no parallel in hlBtory.
No country has produced such men
as Phillips, Garrison, Douglas and
IMncoln; and no nation has settled
such questions as the United States.
It was the spirit of liberty in our fath-r
ers that rocked the cradle of the na
tion in its infancy. It -was that spirit
that produced the constitution and se
cured liberty to all our people. It is
upon. us to enthusiastically uphold and
support what our fathers accomplished.
A good school ByBtem was Instituted
as an aid to this and the benefits of
that system are enjoyed by evory boy
The United States, said Mr. Thomp
son, Is In tho center of the civilized
world, and Nebraska Is in tho center
of the United States. The states of tho
union form a monument, near tho top
of which is Iowa and at the very top
Nebraska. And above all waveB tho

The ominous silence that followed
tho election on Friday of last week and
the lull In Sophomore politics cul
minated In many surprises for all con
cerned at the class meetings yesterday.
At the last meeting the vote stood,
Sweeley, 33; Beers, 57; McWhinney,
41; Mather, 12.
Rumors had been afloat that Mr.
Mather and Mr. McWhinney would
withdraw In favor of Mr. Beers. But
to the Burprlse of all Mr. McWhfnney
in a well worded speech stated that
for the sake of harmony and a speedy
election he would withdraw In favor
of Mr. Sweeley. Mr. Mather resigned
in favor of Mr. Beers. The ballot re
sulted in the election of Mr. Sweeley
by a vote of C5 to 59. Tremendous
applaiiBe followed tho announcement
that amounted almost to an ovation.
Mr. Sweeley in a brief speech thanked
his supporters and pledged himself to
