SOMEfOOTBALLGOSSIP Teams Practices Lightly Scrubs Leave to Vote More Bleach er Room Kansas City Sports Jarred, According to the Kansas City Star unusual interest was aroused all over the Missouri valley on account of the Nobraska-Haskcll game. The result of the game was a big surprise to Kan sas City enthusiasts. The Indians were the favorites and in many cases Ne braska supporter.! were given odds. The Kansas City sports were led astray by the fact that Haskell defeated Missouri '11 to 0. while the Nebraskans made it 12 to 0. They will know better next time, as will several local bettors, who apparently were unable to realize that Nebraska has a great team this year. It is now up to Kansas to show what she can do. The game Saturday prom ises to be hard fought. In fact, the Jayhawkers always put up a good fight. Last year their team was composed of inexperienced men, but they played hard. This year the team is in much better condition. Curtis, the coach, has and will undoubtedly put forth his greatest efforts to have the team ready to meet Its old rivals. In this connection it must be re membered that Knox, after defeating Northwestern 15 to 0, succeeded in making but live points against Kan sas. The latter will be in much better shape when she meets Nebraska and we may expect a good game on next Saturday. The carpenters are pushing the work on the new bleachers to the south of the grand stand. The size of Saturday's crowd was a good illustration of the interest which is taken in football this year. There is no questioning the fact that the people are supporting and will continue to support the team more than ever before. The athletic board appreciates this condition and will do all In its power to accommodate the large crowds. Sipco the game it has been decided to extend the grandstand eight feet on the north. This, together with the extension on the south will make one hundred and sixty feet of new bleach ers. The men will go to work Imme diately on the north extension and both extensions will be ready for the Kan sas game on the coming Saturday. The report of the game Saturday was again displayed by electric lights upon the tower of main hall. The ar rangement was scarcely placed before ik the rain began to descend In torrents. But few students, therefore, had the opportunity of seeing how 28 to 0 looked upon the tower. This new fea ture has been added by active students in the engineering department. The football squad did not work very hard last night After tackling the dummy and catching punts the Varsity lined up against the scrubs for a few plays. Several of the second team men have gone home to vote, and as a re sult it was almost impossible to find enough players to give the first team good practice. Cotton was out ngaln last night for the first time in a week. He and Tobin played with the scrubs. Coach Hooth and Assistant Coach Drain played during part of the prac tice on the second eleven. Eager who has not been out for some time, was out last night and will be out during the rest of the season. "Hill" Johnson will come out tonight. These men are both strong players and will be a valuable addition to the foot ball squad. Assistant Coach Palmer, who has boon ill for a few days, was on the field last night. Richardson, who played center on our last year's second eleven, Is now playing center for Kansas. He will be in the game Saturday. Training Table Bill of Fare. It may be of some interest to the students to know the daily blll-of-fare at the training table. The menu is as follows: For breakfast Roast beef, eggs, fried potatoes, Force on toast, prunes and water. For lunch Rare roast beef, baked potatoes, toast, fruit and water. For dinner cold meat, usually fowl; mashed potatoes, onions with cream, toast, custard, and water. From such feeding as this it is not wondered that "the Cornhuskers have an unusually strong team this year" as the Chicago Chronicle puts it. Wisconsin's football eleven will make a western trip during the Christmas holidays. They will play Leland Stan ford on Christmas day, and will con test 'with California on New Year's day. l Settlement Board Reports. The college settlement board met in Dr. Hill's office in the library building Saturday morning. The report on Miss Stone's lecture was submitted and ac cepted. The settlement's share of the proceeds amounted to about $85, a dis appointing showing in view of the time spent and the efforts made In ad vertising the lecture. It was decided to begin work at once In putting In the furnace that was do nated to the settlement. The question of cementing the basement of the house was discussed, but no definite conclu sions were reached and further discus sion of the matter was deferred to the next meeting. The ways and means of raising addi tional funds to meet incidental ex penses and to discharge present obli gations wore discussed but the meet ing adjourned without taking action upon any of the suggestions made in regard to the matter. The Y. M. C. A. held a ping-pong tournament in the parlors Friday even ing for the Freshment of the univer sity. About forty men contested in the events and all report an enjoyable time. Messrs. Wheeler and Mathleson were the final contestants. Mathleson won out. THE QUESTION SETTLED Senior Class Decides to Leave Chfice of Commencement Orarors With Chancellor and Committee. The Seniors held a short meeting In the old chapel yostoidny. during the convocation hour. Vice President Lindeman presided in the absence of President Huck. The attendance was good. The secretary's report was suspend ed, and the selection of a class orator was reconsidered. It was decided to leave the question of selection with the committee and the Cnanocllor. A speaker will be chosen from the list of twelve names suggested by the com mittee. The matter of class caps and pins was brought up and discussed. The boys will obtain pins of the same de sign as those secured by the girls. The boys will probably wear caps also. The whole matter of pins and caps is now In charge of the Senior hat committee. The committee on a class play was an nounced and is composed of the follow ing persons: H. C. Filley, chairman. Thomas Elson. Charles Potts. Sadie Fowler. Edith Bennett. nessle Brown. Louise Miller. Prof, frye Discusses English. Professor Frye, of the English de partment has an article In the current number of the Independent on "The Teaching of English." In discussing the question. Professor Frye finds "two sets of difficulties In herent on the subject, which no system has as yet succeeded In overcoming." In the first place, he says, rhetorics, as a class ignore the fact that words mean something and Instead of treat ing them as the symbols of Ideas they aim at a mere alignment of words. In the second place, rhetorics have found no way as yet of inspiring a stu dent with thoughts that will out. Pro fessor Frye thinks that "What wo need at this time above all things Is an ap peal to awaken the student's intelli gence." The fact that people try to write without something to say ac counts for the "frothlness and va cuity" of our literature. Prof. Ross on Taxation. The University of Chicago is experi menting with a composite university extension course on "Modern Social Problems." The course includes lec tures by professors from six different universities, Chicago, Nebraska, Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. Dr. E. A. Ross, of the department of so ciology, represents the University of Nebraska, and he just returned from an extended lecturing tour, delivering lec tures in Kansas City, Omaha, St. Joe, Des Moines, St Paul, and Minneapolis. His subject was "Problems of Taxa tion." Dr. Ross reports signs of great and increasing interest in the subject of taxation throughout tho west, and says that tho Indications nre that the tax cyclone 'now ravaging Michigan, Wis consin and Ohio, Is traveling our way. In a discussion at Omaha after his lec ture an assessor said that tho people were much more liberal In returning their property 'since tho assessments of tho Omaha public service companies were raised to reasonable figures. A better spirit prevails among the tax payers as a result. Prof. Burnett at Convocation. Prof. Burnett addressed the students at Concovntlon yesterday on "Tho South." Although the north Is very prosper ous, yet the visitors In tho southern states found poverty on all sides. The speaker assumed that the state of af fairs was due to the lack of ambition In the southern people. Furthermore the people did not seem to have as high Ideals as the northern people. Tho speaker said the soil was so poor that it was Impossible to raise good crops and consequently little money could bo made In farming, although la bor waa cheap. The single crop Idea Is giving way to a more modern sys tem. The small farmers now have a diversity of crops and as a result are becoming moro Independent. More cat tle are being raised than formerly. Tho speaker noted an Increase In the number of factories which would tend to Increase the wealth of the country. The southern people have come to re alize that It does not pay to depend on the northern states for manufac tured articles -when they have the fa cilities to produce their own goods. In conclusion tho speaker said that nearly nil the negroes would be dis franchised by the educational require ments. College Settlement Notes. A class in elocution Is being organ ized at the College Settlement. Tho classes of the College Settlement house are increasing very rapidly in numbers. The boys' class has reached a membership of sixty and promises to exceed that number before the holi days. Tho Y. M. C. A. Mission society has commenced soliciting money for the mission cause. Over $20 have already been subscribed and tho association hopes to pass the hundred mark before March 1, when the money is due. The new ping-pong table, which was donated by the Western Manufacturing company, has been set up in the game room and proves to be quite an in centive to the boys. It is a fine table being of hard wood and 8x10 feet in size. Minnesota is to have a basket ball tournament Teams from various classes and departments will compete for a championship cup. '-.
