The Rcdmcn Prove Easy Victors
Varsity Team Plays
The Haskell Indians won easily from
the Varsity Saturday night by a Bcore
of 35 to 18. Captain Hewitt and his
men put up a good game, but were, un
able to sucdessfujly cope with thcBwlft
and skiltful Indians. The second team
of the Varsity defeated the High School
AO to 7.
The Indian team was for the most
part made tip of old football players,
who showed the same swiftness that
has won them such great renown on
the gridiron. Archiquette rallls and
Oliver are all known as football stars,
and they had evidently made up their
minds to pay back Nebraska for the
crushing defeat that attended their last
visit to Lincoln. Oliver especially
showed groat ability and to him Is due
in great part the success of the team.
Elliott Btarted the scoring and In the
r first minute of play threw two goals.
Nobraska supporters grow enthusiastic
und began to look for an easy victory,
but the Redmen got In their work and
threw eight goals and a foul before
Nebraska could score again. Ferguson
throw another goal and Llllott a goad
and a foul before the half ended. Has
kell threw two more goals and a foul.
In the second half the game was not
so one-sided, and the local team held
the visitors down to a score of 12 to 9
In their favor.
Final score 36 to 18.
basket ball team returned late Satur
day night from their match with Te
cumseh, feeling well pleased with their
first game, but rather hazy about the
score, which is either 8 to 8, or 8 to 10.
The Tecumseh forward threw the de
cisive goal, If It was such, from a pass
made by the center player, after an
umpire had blown the whistle for a
double foul, and "dead ball," and the
Academy guards had consequently left
their posts. It was allowed to stand
at the time, but through mistake.
The teams were evenly matched In
any case, and the' Academy basket
ball team began Its career In a very
credible fashion. The trainer of the
Tecumseh team, which Is in its second
year of organization, is Miss Hannah
Plllsbury, last year's center on the
University of Nebraska team.
The players on the Academy team
are: Edna Baker, Jane Blanchard,
centers,; Hazel Cameron, Elizabeth
Meyer, forwards; Ruth Baker, Ruth
Woodsman, guards; Myrtle Morrison,
Elizabeth Lyman, substitutes. The
team went to'Ttectnriflefl In charge of
Miss Dean and Miss Puffer, Instructors
In the academy.
Special Program Saturday Night
A Iflost Successful
The Glee Club furnished the music
at Convocation on Friday morning and
was enthusiastically received on its
first regular appearance. The hall was
well filled with a chowd attracted by
the new organization. Professor Stan
acted as leader.
The program was opened by the song
"In Praise of Old Uni," and ended with
the "Soldier's Chorus," from Faust,
The ninth annual exhibition of the
Nebraska Art Association closed Sat
urday night with a special program.
The exhibition is regarded as the moBt
successful In the history of the asso
ciation, and the last evening brought
out an unuBiially large crowd to enjoy
the pictures for tne last time.
The program consisted of several ad
dresses by prominent members of the
association. President F. M. Hall, In
Introducing the speakers, said that the
success of the art exhibit was due
largely to tho substantial support of
the faculty of the university and es
pecially to the efforts of Miss Cora
Parker, a former resident of Lincoln.
The paintings on exhibition, ho said,
were valued at about $75,000, and were
It not for the fire-proof gallery to
which the association had access, and
to the responsible men and women who
were backing the enterprise, no such
collection of valuable pictures could
have been Bccured.
Chancellor Andrews was the first
speaker called upon. He congratulat
ed the community on its opportunity
to see and enjoy a colection of the beBt
art that America can produce. Noth

on Its tastes for art, and told of how

learned that tho best paintings In
America wore appreciated by a town

Professor Hodgman spoke of ' tho
past, present and future of tho asso
ciation. He recited some of the trials
that had been encountered and antici
pated a free state art gallery for tho
future. He though that Lincoln could
be made an art center as well as an
educational center, and that It would
bo as easy to induce the state legis
lature to appropriate $5,000 fortho
benefit of tho Art Association as It
has been to secure that amount to aid
the Historical Society.

Tho Y. M. C. A. Juniors' basket ball
team defeated tho Sophomores In the
Armory Friday night by tho decisive
score of 18 to 2. The gamo was not
as one-Bided, however, as the score
would seem to indicate. The Sopho
mores frequently succeeded In getting
the ball near their goal, but were un
able to throw goals. Their team work
was poor, while that of their opponents
was good throughout the contest. The
first half ended 6 to 0, and in the sec
ond tho viBltors tripled their number
of points, while Beers prevented a
shut-out for the Sophs by throwing
their only goal. Hammell, of tho Y.

throwing six goals, while Wilhelmson
threw two and Granger one.
