REDSKINS' HAIR LlfTED
Haskell Team Suffers Hard Treat
ment In Nebraska Corn
huskers Satisfy a Large
Before a crowd of about 4,000 enthu
siastic spectators Nebraska triumphed
over the husky red men Saturday by
the Bcore of 28 to 0, and thereby upheld
her claim to supremacy in the Missou
Although the score was largo and the
Indians met a crushing defeat, yet
those who were fortunate enough to
witness the game saw one of the hard
est games ever played in thlB city. Ne
braska outplayed her opponents and
excelled in all departments of the game,
but the red men came to Lincoln deter
mined to win and during the first part
of the game they played with a fierce
ness that was enough to set Nebraska
thinking. The Indians were &wift, tricky
and aggressive, but they could not
' overcome their well-trained opponents.
The game put up by the varsity would
do credit to almost any institution.
The superior physical condition of the
team was apparent by the number of
substitutes played by Haskell. The
team work was excellent, the best
ever seen hero. Our men went after
the Indians from start to finish and
when time was called tho latter pre
sented a gloomy appearance. Redwater,
the great Indian guard became disgust
ed at the way things were going and
"just quit." Nebraska's goal was in
real danger but onco and that was
when Baine ran from the center of the
field for what tho crowd thought was
a touch down. But Baine had gone out
of bounds and consequently Nebraska's
line remained unsullied.
The red men appeared on the field
shortly before the hour and after
working out a little retired to tho
shade of the south goal and wrapped in
their red blankets patiently awaited
their doom. At 3 o'clock Westover led
his men onto tho gridiron and the
game began immediately.
Tho two sections of rooters and the
band that had been making things live
ly on the east bleachers were hushed
in expectation, and tho immense crowd
quietly awaited the klckoff.
Little need be said of tho work of
the team or of the individual excellence
of every member. Every man played
his game, and although tho work or
the men in tho lino was less spectacu
lar than of those behind, it was posti
lion only that made it so.
The Indians chose the south goal and
kicked off IB yards. Bell and Mickel
made good gains and Cortelyou went
around right end for 15 yards. On a
fumble the Indians secured tho ball, but
failed to gain a yard and were forced
to punt. Bonder was unable to re
turn, but on the first play carried two
or threo warriors for 15 yards. Mickel
mado 3 yards, but tho palefaces lost
ground on as offside play and later
ost the ball on downs. The third down
netted the Indians the necessary 5
yards, but tho ball was lost on a fum
ble. Benedict punted and Fallis re
turned 10 yards. On a doublo pass
Balno mado a spectacular run of GO
yards for a touchdown, but as ho ran
out of boundB the ball was brought
back and given to Nebraska. Benedict
punted, the Indians fumbled, and Cor
telyou fell on the ball on the 3-yard
line. Bender went over and the crowd
counted the score. Benedict missed
goal. In a conflict over tho touchdown
Baine was ruled out, and Oukey took
Tho Indians kicked off to Bender,
who failed to return. Captain Fallis
had his noso split and retired in favor
of Lo Mort Benedict punted, tho In
dians failed to return and lost ground
on a doublo pass. Punts were ex
changed, and Nebraska secured tho ball
on a fumble. Westover mado 25 yards
through tackle. Further plays carried
tho ball to the 5-yard line, where it
was lost. The Indians failed to gain,
Nebraska secured tho ball, and tried a
place kick, which was blocked. Tho
Indians punted out of danger and Ne
braska again advanced to the 5-yard
line, when time was called.

The registration In tho debating de
partment shows an increase of 40 per
cent over last year.
Tho secretary of the debating asso
ciation announces that an effort will
be made to have tho questions for tho
preliminary contests definitely settled
by December 1st.
The constitution of tho debating as
sociation provides that all regularly
matriculated students in tho university
shall bo eligible for membership In tho
association, and participation in the
premllmlnary contest upon tho pay
ment of a fee of $1.
Tho classes In first year debate aro
working with "Baker's Principles."
After a thorough mastery of Baker the
sections will be devided into squads
and assigned questions. Through the
courtesy of Professor Fogg these de
bates were open to visitors last year,
and it Is not unlikely that thlB priv
ilege will be allowed this year.
among tho state offices. It remains
last on the list, but the superlntendency
is no longer the "tall" of the state
ticket. It is an office of great Influence
and responsibility, and when a man Is
found who measures up to tho possi
bilities of the place It would be a sin
against the children of the state to
neglect to give him an additional term.

A greater Interest than usual is man
ifested on the part of the law students
In the subject of preliminary dobates.
Tho secretary of tho debating associa
tion says that present Indications point
to a registration of at least twenty-flvo
from this department.
A large number of men have enlisted
In tho course in argumentative com
position. This Is a new course and
hereafter will bo mado a requirement
for entering tho clusses In debate. It
Is believed that as a rosult of this
course the men will prove stronger In
debate next year.
The four debating clubs aro regularly
meeting Saturday evenlngB in their re
spective halls with a considerable in
crease In attendance over last year.
Tho first of a sorlos of Inter-club de
bates was hold last Saturday evening
in Union hall, between tho Maxwells
and Unions. Movements aro on foot
looking toward similar contests with
tho other clubs. Inter-club debates
provo of great value in other institu
tions, and it Is hoped that a regular
custom may be established hero.
Messrs. Lee, Peters, Kutcher and Cat
lln will discuss "Resolved, That a sys
tem of compulsory arbitration should
bo adopted for settlement of labor dis
putes in tho United States."
Tho other members will bo assigned
as soon as possible their respective
Professors representing tho debating
departments In which the questions de
bated mainly He, will act as critics.
The benefit resulting from this criti
cism can not bo overestimated, as mem
bers of last year's class will testify.
In tho advanced debate there Is
greater activity than formerly. Tho
members of tho class have been di
vided Into squads and beginning with
Thursday, Nov. 6th, there will bo a de
