GATES SHIT ON NKD
Secret Practice Goes On Without
Spectators Teams Were
Worked Hard Last
Practice was shnip and snappy last
night and tho scrubs were unable to
inako many gains against their sturdy
opponents. Uell made a sensational
run of 108 yards for a touchdown and
Bender sprinted down the field 5.r yards
for the second score. Shcdd broke
through tho line and made another
long run for a touchdown. The scrubs
played good ball, but were unable to
get onto the science of the game put
up by the 'varsity.
Every man now playing on the 'var
sity squad was trlrd out nt his posi
tion. Tobln and Rrlggs played on the
scrubs' sldo during part of the prac
tice. Practice continues to be held behind
closed gates and every precaution is
being taken to keep any information
about tho team where it belongs. A
mass meeting will be held during
chapel time Friday to stir up interest
in the game and support for the team.
It is becoming difficult to get enough
mon out to play on the second eleven.
Last night it became necessary to hunt
up a few men and get them out on the
field. The season is so far advanced
that there Is a reluctance on the part
of many to get out any more. It takes
a great deal of loyalty to get out night
after night and have the first team
push you all over the field and yet
that is what the scrubs are doing with
very little encouragement from the
outside. Assistant Coach Drain has
developed a second eleven this year
that has scored on the 'varsity twice
by straight football, a feat that no
other team has accomplished this sea
son. Captain Newton and his men are
worthy of a great deal of praise. They
have worked hard and faithfully and it
is tho hope of all who are Interested
In football that they will continue to
do good work In the future.

TO CONTROL TRUSTS
Mr. Manahan Reviews the Ques
tion of Trusts and Analyses
Hon. J. A. Manahan addressed the
students at convocation Wednesday
morning on the proposed trust amend
ment of President Roosevelt.
"Few words," said Mr. .Manahan.
"convey a deeper meaning than the
word 'trust'; without trust there could
be no such thing as home, friendship
or happiness. But. as the poet puts It.
'What's in a name?' after all, for In
the political world no word is more
Suggestive of evil and corruption.
Trusts, like charity, cover a multitude
of corporate sins.
"The president says that trusts are
creatures of law. Lawyers further
characterize them as being" devoid of
henrt and soul. As creatures of law
they have neither fathers or mothers,
'jlstcrs or cousins; having no heart,
they were never known to bo in love,
but it is hinted that they have boon
known to dirt with politicians.
"There aio some 250 trusts In exis
tence, many of which are p-otected by
a tariff, to the disadvantage of the
consumer at home. For example: A
woman of Egypt can buy an American
manufactured sewing machine cheaper
than that same machine can be pur
chased at the factory door in America.
"Numerous remedies for tho trust
evil have been proposed, and among
them is 'publicity. That is, that the
books and affairs of a corporation
should be open to public scrutiny. This
remedy I deem as wholly inadequate,
affording too great opportunity for
evasion and deception.
"Another remedy Is a revision of the
present tariff schedule by which the
duty will be taken off articles pro
duced by a monopoly. This nlone
would not suffice to eradicate tho trust
evil, unless the present laws are en
forced. A monopoly is declared to be
indefensible and Intolerable. It Is an
act against our criminal law for a
man or set of men to engage In a
monopoly Biich as certain trusts have
"President Roosevelt advises as a
remedy an amendment to the consti
tution by which the power to create
and control trustB shajl be vested in
the congresa of the United States.
"The criticisms made against the
president's plan are based upon sev
eral different ideas. First, that tho
passage of such an act would be un
wise. Men in the business world aro,
in general, weak and tend toward cor
ruption, and it would be dangerous to
center the control of almobt one-third
of the entire wealth In the hands or a
few men. One congressman, In speak
ing against this proposed amendment,
said that If the law were passed Wash
ington would become tho center of the
nation's corruption. Another objection
is on tho ground that tho law Is un
nceeBHary. Tho presldont, In his Cin
cinnati speech, said, Hpoaklng on his
proposed amendment, that tho first
act of congreHH under thnt amendment
would ho to secure publicity of tho af
fairs of all great corporations doing
an Interstate business, and later In
the speech he said that nowadays all
tho corporations to which he was re
ferring did an Interstnto business.
Since- tho present constitution empow
er congress to regulate and control
interstate business, tho amendment be
"A third objection is raised on tho
grounds that the plan Is Impossible.
Twelve states could defeat tho law,
and It could never be carried in tho
trust states. If It could he passed it
would require four or five years to ac
complish the passage.
"According to Attorney Genernl
Knox, the trusts can be controlled and
regulated by the Sherman anti-trust
law. Then why should the president
discard the means at hand for tho
possibility, of passing a constitutional

Mr. Reed was in doubt as to whether
ho had time enough to devote to the
office. He said lie would endeavor,
with the co-operation of the members,
to make the coming year tho most
successful in the history of tho society.
Mr. Brooks, corresponding secretary,
thought the society should arrange for
a series of lectures to be given before

Mr. Brown was also in fuvor of se
curing outside talent, but if this could
not be done he was in favor of the

pers. Bruce Benedict, a former president
of the society, was present and made a
short talk. He spoke of the success of
the society in past years. He said that
one of the essential qualifications of
an engineer was to be able to handle
men. This, he thought could in a large
measure be acquired in the society.
He had met many Nebraska men In
different parts of the country and ho
was always proud of them.
S. D. Clinton, last year's president,
was pleased to see the continued suc
