RAIN HINDERS PRACTICE
Men Slw n Getting Oat Knox is
Coming Expecting to Defeat
Nebraska Other foot
The weather was too disagreeable
for energetic practice last night and
Booth kept his pets under shelter rath
er than subject them to the vicissitudes
of the weather. Only Follmer, Tobln
and Simodymus of the regular squad
were on the gridiron. By working In
the coaches and playing with half
teams it was possible to line up for
a little scrimmage but the rain soon
Interfered. Johnson was otltr-for the
first time this week.
Judging from the interest thats be
ing manifested in the approaclilSjg
game with Knox, the crowd will equal
the multitude that attended the Has
kell game. Thanks to the action of
the athletic board the accommodations
are much better than they were two
weeks ago and it will be unnecessary to
stand along the fence In order to see
the game. The new additions to the
grandstand are completed and although
not as yet provided with covering, they
are otherwise ready for use and the
grandstand accommodations are al
most doubled. On the east side of the
field the bleachers extend the entire
length of the gridiron, with abundant
seating capacity for the rooters.
Nebraska now has a field superior in
Its accommodations to anything west
of Chicago, and one of which we may
justly feel proud. Only three years
ago it waB still necessary to push the
spectators off the field in order to give
the plays room to play and a crowd
such as attended the Kansas game. '
although a small one for this year, was
then considered immense.
Everybody expects Knox to be de
feated, but all agree that the game ,
will be one of the hardest of the year. ;
To allow Knox to cross Nebraska's
goal line after Minnesota and the Has- '
koll Indians have been kept at a safe
distance, would Indeed be disastrous to
The Cornhusker's seem to do their
playing on alternate Saturday's. After
defeating Minnesota they allowed the
Tigers 10 hold them down to a low
score, much lower than that made by
the Indians. After the Missouri game
they got down and worked as they
never had before, and the Indians met
a crushing defeat. Then came the Jay
hawkers and again the game was not
what was expected. If they play ac
cording to rule Knox In her turn will
know what It Is to experience a shut
out next Saturday. Then men are play
ing well and realize that the Oalesburg
JSn play good football. The absence
Oi Shedd Is the only thing to be re
gretted and the end may prove a trifle
weak. Follmer plays his game well, but
has not the strength of the unlucky

Some Academy Notes.
The Lincoln Academy appreciates
the completion of Its new home after
several weeks of work accomplished
under difficulties. The concrete walks
were laid laBt week in front of the
building, which puts the finishing
touch on the entire institution.
One half of the room formerly rented
in the Wln8or building Is now used as
laboratories for physics, chemistry and
botany. Those branches of study can
thus be given better attention, and
students are afforded much better ac
commodations. The social and literary side of Btu
dent life receives due attention among
the aggressive academy students. The
social hour club meets Monday at 3 p.
m., with Mrs. Hodgeman, and enjoys
both a Boclal and an Intellectual treat.
The I ntln students, too, have organized
themselves into a club. The organiza
tion, was completed Tuesday night In
a meeting at the home of Miss Edna
Baker. It was decided to hold their
meetings hls year and the following
officers weros elected: President, Miss
Cage Shannon: vice president. Miss
Edna Baker; secretary, Frank C.
Builta. Miss D(kn and Mr. Elliott will
assist In arranging the programs.
The class in shorthand under the di
rection of Miss Virginia Hoffman, of
the executive officio of the university,
meets regularly and is making rapid
progress. The cldss is small this se
mester, but it is hoped that the num
ber will be greatly increased next se
mester by studonts coming from the
university. The course given by Miss
Hoffman Is practical and furnished ad
vantages of especial interest to law
students and to those who contemplate
entering the profession of journalism.
For the first few years the lawyer is
obliged to do work largely of a cler
ical nature, and the reporter always
finds shorthand an advantage. In fact,
it Ib quite necessary in IiIb profession.
Miss Hoffman conducts her classes
at the Academy where she has secured
suitable rooms. If enough students
show an Interest In this line of Btudy
a claBB in typewriting may be organ
ized next semester.
Remember that the game begins at
2:30 Saturday instead of 3, as for
merly. Coach O'Dea, of the Wisconsin crew,

JUNIORS HOLD FORTH
Class Meeting Turns Out tk Be
Interesting Cap Question
Causes Objections The
The Juniors held a lively meeting In
the old chapel yesterday morning dur
ing convocation hour. There were about
fifty In attendance.
Chairman JohnBon of the athletic
committee reported that meetings of
the Inter-class committees had been
called, but were not attended and that
a meetings of the four respective chair
men will be held soon.
The committee on debate announced
that agreements had been entered Into
for the Senior debate, which Is to oc
cur the weok ending December 13th.
The Junior and Senior presidents are
to appoint the debaters at once. There
will be three on a side and Inter-state
debaters aro barred.
The girls informed the class that they
had decided upon cap and showed the
class a sample of their selection. Some
of the boys seemed to think that they
would have to wear it too, and the
hall echoed with objections. Matters
were explained and the trouble Bettled.
The meeting then adjourned and
Chairman Buckner of the hat commit
tee, presented the matter of head gear
to the boys. It was at first decided
to wear caps. On reconsideration the
majority was In favor of hats. Dif
ferent colors and trimmings were sug
gested and discussed until the chapel
had to be turned over and no conclu
sion was reached. The boys will meet
soon to agree on this matter.
Chairman Bickford read the new con
stitution, which was accepted without
alteration or addition. The Junior
class now has one of the best and
most complete constitutions of any of
the classes. The work of the commit
tee in charge Is highly commendable.

Early Nebraska History.
Professor Caldwell's Saturday even
ing seminar is unearthing many Inter
esting facts about early Nebraska not
yet recorded In any existing histories
of the state. 8everal ondeavors to or
ganize the tranB-MlsBourl country aro
found to have preceded the famous
Douglas bill of 1844-54. The earliest of
theso prior bills suggested the namo
"Western Territory," (It Is Interesting
to conjecture what namo the state
would have then received), and em
braced all the region between tho
Platto river on the north and tho Mex
ican possessions on the south. A pro
posed "Territory of tho Platte," In
1852 was given practically the present
state boundaries In place ot tho bulky
40 to 449 degree limits of the later bill
In 1854, and at various tlms tho ques
tion of an exclusive Indian state west
of the Missouri was discussed.
The seminar investigations aro also
tending to overthrow tho traditional
view that Douglas was a radical pro
slavery man and that he divided Kan
sas and Nebraska at the 40th parallel
in order to satisfy tho southern de
mand for a new slave state. Douglas
appears to have adopted this lino of
division at the suggestion of professed
delegates from tho Kansas-Nebraska
region, and the motive of the latter
seems to have been a wish to control
the routes of tho projected Pacific rail
roads in tho interests of Iowa and Mis
souri respectively and not any thought
of pro-slavery or anti-slavery gain. It
Is now affirmed, also, that Douglas ad
vocated the Kansas-Nebraska "repeal
of the Missouri compromise" In the be
lief that squatter sovereignty would
not only make Kansas-Nebraska froo
territory, but gradually drive slavery
southward to Its own extinction. If
further Btudy of tho Bourco proves this
to be true, it means that practically
all histories dealing with the Kansas
Nebraska struggle will have to rovlso
at least such of their chapters as deal
with Douglas and his motives. With
such prospects before them, It la hard
ly necessary to say that the seminar
Btudents are absorbingly Interested in
In these Nebraska revelations, Pro
fessor Caldwell's class has been greatly
assisted by the careful, and fruitful in
vestigations of Mr. Albert Watklns, as
editor of tho projected "Morton Me
morial History of Nebraska," and their
joint ondeavors are yielding much mat
tor that will prove of both Interest and
value to future writers and students of
Maxwell Debating Club.
There will be an important meeting
of the Maxwell Debating club Satur
day evening at 8 p..m. sharp. A good
program has been prepared, and a large
attendance is earnestly requested. All
law students are members of the Max
well club, and can avail thomselvea of
its benefits if they ao desire. All uni
versity students are invited to attend
the meeting in the "law room" (Max
well club), November 15th.
