TIGER'S TAILS PILLED
Missouri Beaten by a Small Score
Nebraska Does Fair Work
Rooting Crowds at
The Tigers escaped Saturday with
only two hard knots In their tails.
Missouri certainly played better ball
than they did against the Indians, and
Nebraska's work was not up to Its
In the first half Bonediet was Injured
in the head and for a while was unable
to call signals. It was probably due
to the injuries ho received that his
punting was not as good as usual. Ben
der did some star playing in the back
field, and twice in succession stopped
a run that would otherwise have re
sulted in a touch down.
Nebraska was represented by a
squad of perhaps 200, and Columbia
bent a delegation of about the same
number. St. Joseph turned out poorly,
and the crowd numbered not more than
2,000. Missouri supporters did some
good rooting which was equalled by
Nebraska. Special mention is due to
the ladles, who lent their voices and
support to the occasion.
Missouri kicked oiT 45 yards and
Benedict returned 5 yards. The first
down failed to gain anything, but
Shedd went around the end for 5 yards
and Benedict punted outside the line.
Missouri then swiftly advanced to
ward the goal and made the required
5" yards four times, until a place kick
was attempted, but was blocked. Smith
fell on the ball, securing it again for
the Tigers. Kirk for Missouri then
exchanged punts with Benedict, the
latter sending the pigskin down the
field for 45 yards, tho longest punt
made during the game. Cortelyou went
down the line wl'h his usual speed,
tackling before the ball could be re
turned a foot. The Cornhuskers built
-heir stonewall and forced the Tigers
to runt. C.rtelyou went around rlgln
end for 5 jards and Benedict punted
ognln. Missouri went through left
Lackle for 5 yards, but was forced to
I unt on the third down, with 4 yards
to make. Bender in the back-field
missed the ball but recovered it In time
to make 10 yards. Mickel hurdled the
line for small gains and Cortelyou
made 5 yards. Punts were again ex
changed, Nebraska gaining by the play,
as Missouri kicked out and Nebraska
pecured the ball on the 25 yard line.
Then the excitement began. Only four
minutes of play remained and the root
W for the scarlet and cream were con
stant in their demands for a touch
down. Shedd and Cortelyou made good
eains around tho ends. Bender weni
through tho line to good advantago and"
landed the ball on the 2 yard line,
Mickel hurdling for a touch down. Ben
edict kicked goal with two minutes to
Missouri kicked off to Bender, wno
followed his Interference for 30 yards,
the longest gain made during the game.
Time was called before the ball could
be further advanced.
In the second half Nebraska kicked
off to the 5 yard line, Missouri re
turned 5 yards and then kicked. Bell,
Bender and Mickel each advanced the
pigskin for good gains, but Bender lost
It In going through the line. Kirk,
Missouri's full back, went out of the
game, as the result of Injuries. Mis
souri fumbled and tho ball was ad
vanced by a series of swift plays until
within one foot of tho goal line. Mis
souri rooters in vain called, "Hold that
line." By a mass on tackle Bell went
over bo fast that ho landed 4 yardB
to the good and rolled squarely between
the goal posts. Benedict kicked goal
after nine minutes of playing. Then
came tho work that nearly resulted in a
score for Missouri. Nebraska lost the
ball on her own 25 yard line, by a
fumble, and Artinger went around
Shedd for a gain of 15 yards. A double
pasB resulted in Blrnoy securing 8
more. Another gain brought the ball
to within 7 yards of the goal. Nebras
ka rooters began to get nervous, but
tho Cornhuskers refused to yield an
Inch, and tho ball was lost on downs.
Benedict kicked out of danger and the
game soon ended on account of dark
ness after less than 45 minutes of play.

been requested to appoint members of

CLASSES TO HAVE CAPS
Seniors and Juniors Try to De
cide Upon Class Caps and
The Junior and Senior dosses of tho
university are just now troubling them
selves over tho kind of Insignia or
wearing apparel that shall distinguish
them on the campus.
Three meetings were held Friday and
each had for Its object tho choosing
of class capB or hats. Tho Senior hoys
met In tljo library and heard tho report
of tho class cap committee, which con
sists of Messrs. Swan, Strayor and
Bruner. The committee had gathered a
collection of caps and hats of various
styles and colors which were brought
before the meeting. The recommenda
tion of the committee favored a cap
after the style of tho popular yacthlng
caps. It was suggested by a prominent
member of tho class that tho class
adopt tho Russian student cap, which
has a broad top sloping backward and
a visor that falls down before tho oyes.
Tho cap Is a sort of bluelsh-groen color
and It was thought that tho class and
university colors could be worked In
on tho trimmings. No decision was
reached, it being thought best to delay
choosing until more designs could be
At tho same hour, 10 o'clock, tho
Senior glrlB met In tho old chapel and
hoard tho report of their commlttoc.
Tho Misses Brown, Woodford and Wall
ing, presented a number of hats of dif
ferent shapes and colors. They rec
ommended a low hat, something after
tho pattern of tho sailor hat, which
could be fixed up In solors to suit the
taste of the class. The glrlB, however,
decided to wear pins instead of class
hats, and instructed the committee to
secure designs from city dealers.
Whether the Senior boys and girls
will finally unite on a pin for the
whole class, or whether they will havo
different ways of distinguishing them
selves Is a matter of speculation.
Tho Junior girls also met Friday, and
promptly decided to wear caps. This
point was easily reached, but a decision
was not bo easily made on tho design,
colors and trimmings. It was at last
arranged, however, and the Junior
girls will soon appear on the campus in
Prince Henry caps, beautifully fitted
out in tho university colors. The cap
itself will bo white or cream color and
the letter, '04, will appear in scarlet
The prompt decision of the Juniors, If
as decision action follows, will put
them in the lead, so far as distinctive
wearing apparel Is concerned.
Miss Stone's Lectare.
The students and faculty of the uni
versity were especially interested In
Miss Stone's lecture, Friday night, be
cause of Its excellence and because It
was given under the auspices of the
Miss Stone spoke to tho studontB for
a few minutes Friday aftornoon, In Me
morial hall, and so firm a hold did sho
take upon tho audience that all wcro

her capture and exporienco nn a cap

It might be. And yet, tho College Set

Just what tho receipts were is not yet
definitely known, but enough has al

receipts of tho lecture to pay all ex

something over $300 has been collected,
which does not include money taken in

Miss Stone's eloquent story held tho
audience in suspense all tho way
through. It was a rare treat for those
especially who had not had tho oppor
tunity of reading tho magazine arti
cles which were written by Miss Stone
and her companion.
Second Team Befeats Medics.
While the varsity men wore twisting
tho Tigor's tall the second eleven was
rubbing It into tho Omaha Medics and
when the fun ended the score was 16
to 0 in favor of the scrubs.
The game was a good, clean exhibi
tion of football. Superior team work
won tho day. Nebraska's formations
were perfect, and eleven men wore in
ovory play from start to finish.
Nebraska began with a series 'of ter
rific lino bucks and never failed to
make her gains. Marsh, Englehart and
Hazen tore up the Medic's lino for big
gains. Tho three or four fumbles made
by the scrubs were more than counter
balanced by those mado by tho doctors.
Englehart's punting was good. Scott
made a sensational ond run of 90 yards
for a touchdown, followed by the en
tire force of pill makers, but owing
to an alleged foul it was not allowed.
Walton secured the pigskin on a fumble
andv made 30 yards, but aside from
these runs there were no sensational
plays made by either team. Nebras
ka's lino was invincible and the Medics
failed repeatedly to make the required
5 yards, and were compelled to punt.
Their punts were blocked in almost
every Instance and resulted in disas
The Medics do not lack in beef, and
the teams were well matched in this
respect, but the doctors did not play
together and their interference was
ragged. They were penalized several
times for offside plays.
Mr. Tukey's umpiring and Mr. Tho

ly satisfactory, and the game was freo
