The report 1b being spread by the
city papers that Omaha did not try to
defeat the University Monday, but Blm
ply played horse with the Cornhuskers.
The only reason given for this belief Is
that Omaha let Nebraska defeat her in
order to have a better crowd Tuesday
and thus reap a larger financial harv
est from her two days' stay in Lincoln.
Tills Idea Is entirely erroneous and
ungrounded. The Omaha men were
frank in admitting they were out
played. It did not matter to Omaha
how small a crowd attended the game,
as they had a guarantee of so much
money, regardless of gate receipts.
Further, if some think that Manager
Rourke Is salarylng men to lose games,
a moment's reflection would certainly
change, their opinion. Captain Stow
art Btated that ills men did the best
they could to win the game, but . ie
Cornhuskers had a good team which
wus too much for them.
With all due respect to the excellent
work of the Cornhuskers thus far this
baseball season, there are two or three
men on the team whose form of play
ing brings forth frequent expressions
of disgust from interested spectators
Theso men can play good ball, but they
are continually attempting to make
"grandstand plays," and in the course
of a game saciiflce considerable by
committing errors which would other
wise not have been made. It is such
work as trying to ' scoop" or catch the
ball with one hand when both hands
could and should be used to insure
"freezing it," tnat gives enthusiastic
supporters a desire to hiss. To let a
strike be called just for "fun," or to
show that the pitcher "can't fan you,"
may cost a score and perhaps a game.
If these men will reflect a moment,
they will certainly see their folly, and
break away from this detrimental
habit. It is suggested that they try to
copy after four or uve of the best men
on the team, who put up a cool, steady,
fast and sure game from start to finish,
and can always be relied on when it
comes to a "crisis."
The Nebraskan is asked to comment
upon the practice several young ladles
have of coming late to chapel, and, in
stead of taking seats In front or In
the gallery, going to Ue back of the
room where the seats are filled, and
standing up. 'lhe young men in the
back seats across the way feel obliged
to go to the gallery, thus causing con
fusion and loss of tlme. Thi8 has oc
curred several times thlB year when
special programs have been given.
Would It not be Just as well for these
young ladles to take front or gallery
seats, and thus avoid confusion and de
lay of exercises?

Ptans to Affiliate With the Lincoln
Yesterday's .State Journal announced
that the Lincoln Dental College would
soon be afllliated with the University,
with relations between the two similar
to those existing between the Omaha
Medical College nnd the University.
Tho plan. It waH stated, would be put
In operation at the beginning of next
school year, when students In den
tistry will register In the University as
special students. Hereafter, then, It
would take four years to complete the
required course in dentistry, the first
year's work being taken almost en
tirely at the University proper, the
Becond quite evenly divided between
the two schools, the third almost whol
ly at the dental college, and the fourth
wholly In that school. Under this plan
the college of dentistry, which has
hitherto been afllliated with Cotner
University, would retain Ub own fac
ulty and pay its own expenses, but a
portion of the tuition would be re
ceived into the treasury of the Univer
sity. That the Journal is correct in
Its statement there is little room for
doubt, but the authorities at the l7nl
veislty have as yet made no such plan
known, because any change of that
character must be acted on by the re
gents before it can be settled. The
regents will meet tho latter part of the
month, and if such a plan is contem
plated by University authorities it will
then be considered. Tho scheme, if
carried out. win give better opportuni
ties to dental students tiian they now
have in the state, because It will open
up to them all the facilities hero at
the Unhcrsity and raise tho diameter
of the work in the dental college itself.
The plan is wpJl in keeping with the
course of tly'Uiiivcrsity In afllllnting
with the Omnha Medical College and
the attempted absorption oi the school
The Function of Play.
Prof Arthur Allin of tho I'nlveisity
of Coloindo. department of psychology
lectured befoie tho students of psychol
ogy and pedagogy Tuesday evening in
the old chapel His subject was "The
Oilgln and Function of Play." He
said children had continued to play
thiough all the ages of human culture,
in spite of the most severe repressive
attempts to put n stop to it. Play is
a fundamental instinct of human na
ture and an essential fac tor In the
preparation of an individual for life
its highest function Is to be found In
tho fact that it is a socializing force
In most plays bojs are trained in tho
habit of woiking together for a com
mon end, in the obedience of com
mands on tho one hand, and in decl-
iilrm iirwl vncnnrfof iilncKK nn the other.
On tho biological side co-ordinations
of vaFcular. glandular and muscular
activities take place. Upon the origin
of plays the author mentioned four
sources from which our plays come,
but lie dwelt particularly upon those
that were occupational. Many plays
are simply survivals of past customs
and practices of the race, that have
long since ceased to be a part of the
social order. Another important
source of plays is the Imitation of pres
ent social customs. He said the play
impulse was more widespread than we
are accustomed' to allow. Any activity
that is performed with a pleasureable
and masterful purpose is to be looked
upon as play. He called attention to
the fact that the frequent indulgence
of northern peoples in hilarious excite
ment, or as the Germans call it in a
"RauBch," is a form of play that is very
Interesting, but partly understood.
His lecture was profusely illustrated.
A vein of suppressed humor and scln
tilating wit ran through It all, making
It one of the most entertaining lec
tures heard upon the University cam
pus this year.
