Jayhawkers Work Hard Against
Nebraska Big Crowd of
Rooters Come With
The Jayhnwkers met defeat on Ne
braska field Saturday before a crowd
of about 1,800 people. The day was
an ideal one for football, but the spec
tators were few, owing, perhaps, to the
fact that supporters of the Nebraska
team expected a walk away and had
no desire to see such a game. As a
matter of fact, the Cornhuskers were
compelled to play a hard game and fre
quently had their line smashed for
long gains. Nebraska's goal was never
In danger, however, and although the
rooters had another scare, when Etch
en, the courageous right tackle, stole
the ball and made a spectacular run
of 108 yards. The umpire's decision
settled matters satisfactorily however.
In the second half Kansas took a brace
and made rapid progress down the field
but an unlucky fumble stopped the
work and the rest of the playing was
done by Nebraska.
Supporters from Kansas to the num
ber of 300 came on a special train Sat
urday and with their band aided ma
terially by good rooting. It must be
confessed that in this particular Ne
braska was excelled by her rival.
Nebraska hardly played her game,
and although there is no cause to re
gret the work done, the style of ball
put up was not equal to that of a
week before.
Kansas kicked off to Benedict, who
fumbled, but managed to return G
yards. The first down failed to gain,
but Englehard on the next play bucked
the line for 5 yards and Cortelyou fol
lowed with a small gain. Englehard
made 3 yards and Benedict punted with
no return. Kansas started with gains
of 3 and 10 yards, but were forced to
punt on the third down, with 3 yards
to gain. Benedict caught the ball and
made a small return and Englehard
made the desired 5 yards In two yards,
followed by a 7 yard line buck. Bell
went around the end fpr 5 yards and
added 4 yards more. Bender made 10
yards, Cortelyou 3, Englehard 2, Mason
1. Englehard 5 and Bell 11 until tho
ball reached the 15 yard line. Swift
playB carried It still further until
Etohen made a steal and ran the length
of the field with Thorpe hard after
him. The umpire was "on" and the
Jayhawkers had the pleasure of see
ing Englehard go over the line on the
ifcyeeond play. Benedict Kicked goal.
Kansas kicked off to Benedict on the
5 yard line and he returned 10 yards.
Thorpe and Cortelyou failed to gain
and Benedict kicked 35 yards to Pooler,
who returned 3 yardB. Kansas made
5 yards on the third down, but Nebras
ka held them and Love kicked to Ben
edict on the 15 yard line. The Corn
hiiBkers carried the pigskin 15 yards,
but were forced to kick. Kansas made
here 5 yards, but punted again with no
return. A series of successful plays
carried tho ball to the 22 yard line,
where it was lost on a fumble. Kansas
punted to Bender, who returned 20
yards and time was called. ,
Second Half.
Benedict kicked off to Kansas to the
20 yard line. A 3 yard rturn was
made, but the visitors were forced to
kick again. Bender returned 10 yards,
but Nebraska failed to gain and Ben
edict punted. Cortelyou sped down the
field, downing the Jayhawkeis In his
tracks. Kansas made 10 yards, and
changed fullbacks, Mother going in to
succeed Love. Englehard wat- hurt and
Mkkel went In for Nebraska. Kansas
continued her gains and made 25 yards
more before the ball was fuinbled and
fell into the hands of Michel, who be
gan his hurdling, making 10 yards.
Bell, Cortelyou and Thorpe followed
with good gains, but Kansas becured
the ball on downs on the 20 yard line.
Five yards around the end followed.
Here Mikles went In at left half for
Kansas. Nebraska secured tho ball
on a fumble again, and on a fake place
kick Bender went through the line and
down the field for a touchdown before
the crowd realized what was happen
ing. Goal was missed.
Kansas kicked to Westover, and
without any losses the ball was pushed
down the field to the 15 yards line.
On the third down, with 3 yards to
gain, Benedict kicked goal from the
field, making the score 16 to 0. Only
a few seconds of play remained, before
time was called.

Auspicious Opening for Collegiate
Year Interesting Talks by
Several Prominent
The Graduate club held Its fiiBt meet
ing at the home of Professor Fossler
last Saturday evening. About one
hundred were present and this is con
sidered unusually auspicious for the
work of tho year. Miss Charlotte Hull
horst opened the program by singing
a selection from Van de Water. The
president, Professor Grummann, spoke
briefly on the aims of the club, empha
sizing that It attempted to broaden
tho intellectual Interest of the post
graduate Btudents of the university as
well as guard them from social isola
tion. The plans for the year were
briefly outlined. The programs are to
consist of papers on special lines of
research Intended for those who are
not specializing in the brunch con
sidered, and of the discussion of ques
tions of Interest to post-graduate cir
cles generally.
Dean Davis gave a most Interesting
talk on "A Century of Mathematics."
He reviewed the various changes which
nave come about In mathematical rea
soning during the last century, and
made a very abstract subject strik
ingly Interesting by his engenlous pre
sentation. Chancellor Andrews opened the dis
cussion on "The Influence of the Three
Years' College Course upon Post-graduate
Work." The Chancellor declared
that he was Inclined to favor the
change, believing that both the under
graduate and graduate departments
would be benefited. He said he believed
a largo number of able men and wo
men would become college Btudents
who are at present deterred on ac
count of the expenses of a four years'
course. Many students who have hith
erto been forced to close their college
course when they have obtained their
A. B., would under the new arrange
ment find it possible to undertake
graduate work. Whether more would
actualy take advanced degrees or not
did not, according to the speaker, seem
to affect the question, since the ef
fectiveness of instruction can not be
gauged by the degree granted.
Professor A. Ross Hill called atten
tion to the fact that under the new sys
tem there might be .a large number of
able students from whom to chose post
graduate students and that this would
probably counteract the apparent dis
advantage of having a shorter period
of preparation.
Professor Ward spoke briefly also on
tho subject and pointed out some of
the dangers Involved in the change.
After the transaction of routine bus-
iness, college songs were sung. Pro
fessor Kimball played the accompanl
ments, and succeeded in stirring the
members to that pitch of enthusiasm
necessary to the singing of college
After refreshments were served an
hour was spent In renewing nnd form
ing acquaintances. This pnrt of the
evening was especially onjoyed because
a number of the professors from the
University of Kansas were prcsont.

ron. The Friday evening session was held
In the university chapel. Mr. J. B.
Bailey, state secretary of the Young
Men's Christian association, addressed
the convention on "Opportunity."
At tho Saturday morning session the
budget for the coming year was pre
sented by Mrs. F. M. Hall: It asked for
about $400 to meet expenses of the as
sociation. Subscriptions by local or
ganizations were liberal and tho
amount was nearly raised.
Chancellor Andrews addressed the
