Good Word3 for Our Debaters.
Tour Starts Well.
Over Five Hundred Sold the First
Day Out.
The long-Iookel-for Sombrero has
finally appeared and was yesterday In
the hands of practically every student.
The red covered book was read on the
stairs of the library. In the halls, on
the steps, under the trees of the camp
us and even In the lecture room The
book was brought up from the printers
Saturday and placed In the storo room
In the basement of University hall
and was put on Bale early yesterday
morning The rush for the annual
kept up all day. and by bIx o'clock
about 500 copies had been disposed of
Tho management feels well pleased
with tho way the sale started off and
hopes that those who desire a book
will buy at onco rather than defer the
purchase for a week or two.
The book, to say the least, is a good
one and worthy of Junior pride and
senior praises. Since Is comes out only
once In two years, the Sombrero Is al
ways considered the best publication
at tho University and each ls&uo is
Judged only by comparison with the
books that have been put out by pre
vious classes This year's Sombrero
compares quite favorably wltii the one
published two years ago. Although It
is in some particulars Inferior to the
last publication, it is superior in some
others. The half tones are very no
ticeably defective, but the art work Is
otherwise excellent The pen work
done- by MIbs Bernice DranBon deserves
special mention. It Is finished In style,
and shows superior skill on the part of
the artist.
Tho first 80 pages of the kook are
given to hlBtories of the classes and
tho University, a large part being de
voted to the Junior biographies and pic
tures about 20 pages more than the
last Sombrero gave to that character
of work A noticeable change In this
year's book over that of two yearB ago
Is tho shortening of the literary de
partment and a corresponding length
ening of tho athletics representation.
The new book is. however, dedicated to
athletics, which may explain this
change. The '02 annual had about -10
pages of literary material, while this
one has only about 15 pages, athletics
occupied about 21 pages in the former
book, while in the latter they hae 43.
Fraternities and literary societies are
well represented, and tho military de
partment of tho University Ib oven bet
tor represented than it was in the last
book. The Josh part of the book Is
well gotten up and shows much origin
ality, both in literary production and
in cartoons.
Beatrice Trip a Success.
The Glee Club concort at Beatrice
Thursday night was the most success
ful of all tho appearances made by tho
club this year. A good audience was
present, and seemed very much de
lighted with the program. Alumni now
in Beatrice turned out in a crowd of
about twenty, with colors and Uni
yells. The club was handicapped to a
certain extent by the sickness of Mr.
Brockway, but tho substitutes filled
the parts very creditably. The club
went down on tho six o'clock train, re
turning early in tho jnorning. The
boys were royally entertained by Inter
ested Beatrice Reople. Tho city papers
complimented the club highly.

"It was the finest college debating I
have ever heard," Bald Professor Jesse
Macy, of Iowa College, to Professor
Ross, speaking of Nebraska's work In
thrashing tho Missourians. And Pro
fessor Macy has had wide experience
as Judgo of college debates. Ho has,
for Instance, Judged intercollegiate de
bates at Minnesota.
"It was very unusual work. The
best I have over heard by undergradu
ates," said Judge O. II. Dean, of Kan
sas City, regarding tho way Nebraska
whipped out Kansas three weeks ago.
"I reel as If I had been going through
a cyclone on an express train," said
Chancellor Strong of Kansas when ho
aroso to announce tho decision after
Buckner and finally lce had, in the re
buttal arguments, demolished the
Kansas' case for compulsory arbitra
tion. For the final debate of the year
with Colorado College at Colorado
Springs Nebraska Is now preparing.
Burdetto G. LowIb, W. F. Meier, and
Ira Ryner will uphold tho Nebraska
banner beneath Pike's Peak. Arrange
ments for the contest are In a chaotic,
unsatisfactory condition. To get com
petent and unbiased judges from Colo
rado Is very difficult. This difficulty Is
greatly Increased by tho refusal of
Colorado to accept as Judges one of the
two expert, trained economists avail
able In the state. Nebraska 1b Inclined
to stand out, in this debate on a tech
nical, economic, and political question,
for at least two experts on the sub
ject, If all the Judges are to be local.
Of tho sweeping victory over M1b
sourl there remains for the Nebraska
team and for those persons In tho au
dience whose knowledgo of the ques
tion enabled them to detect the real
facts, but a single unpleasant mem
ory. That is tho unfairness of the last
Missouri speaker the unfair advan
tage he took of his position which gave
him the last word. When Nebraska
could not reply ho endeavored to make
a good deal (and upon tho crowd In
general ho did make an Impression)
out of two arguments which were un
founded In fact. One of these was his
statement that Nebraska's oil chart
was irrelevant because Nebraska had
agreed to throw tho oil trust out of
tho debate as a natural monopoly.
This Nebraska had not agreed to do.
On that point there had been nothing
whatever broached or agreed on.
other was the argument that Professor
Jenks, of Cornell, whom Nebraska had
quoted, had not, when ho made the
statement Nebraska had quoted, had
access to the facts set forth by the
industrial commission. This assertion
likewise is a garble another example
of what sometimes happens in a debate
when a man gets cornered. In the
Interest of ethics it is possible that,
when arrangements for the next Missouri-Nebraska
debate open, the at
tention of the Missouri authorities will
be called to tho work of the Missouri
leader last Friday night.

Woman's Club Viewed Athletic
Work Yesterday.
The annual Indoor athletic exhibi
tion of the girls' gym classes was
given before the Lincoln Woman's
Club In tho armory yesterday after
noon, about 300 ladleB being In atten
dance. Tho program, which began at
2:30, consisted of regular claBs work,
and was carried out as follows: Swed
ish Folk dance, in costume; march
ings, free-hand work, and dumb-bell
swinging by Miss Whdtlng'B advanced
classes; Swedish exercises by the
freshman class, followed by apparatus
work on tho horse, tho parallel bare
and flying ami traveling rings, and
rope and ladder climbing and jump
ing. A new feature of the exhibit this
year was tho performances by Dr.
Clapp's gym classes, in wand drill, ap
paratus work and body building exor
cises. Tho exhibition, which is al
ways looked upon as a treat by the
club, was spoken of by all as excep
tionally fine this year.
German Fraternities.
Miss Elsie Gerlcke recently received,
through the courtesy of friends in
Germany, a number of curious and
valuable trophies, consisting of caps
representative of different corps or
fraternities of the leading German uni
versities. These caps are all of unique
and tasty design, being rendered espe
cially attractive by a skillful blending
of colors. The members of each corps
in the German universities all wear
caps of a uniform design, and are
thus distinguished from other student
organizations. The corps derive their
names from the different states of
Germany. The caps which MIbs
Gerlcko has in hor possession are rep
resentative of the following corps: The
Prussia, of Berlin, the Palatla, of
Bonn; the Lusatla, of Breslau; the
Franconla, of Elangen; the Teutonla,
of Marburg; tho MlBnla, of Lelpsie;
the Brunsvlga, of Munich, and the
gurinla, of Zunich. On gala occa
sions, georgeoualy plumed capB and
brilliantly colored sashes are worn,
as well as distinguishing uniforms.
Unlike American fraternities, the dif
ferent corps do not associate with tfach
other, but keop by themselves. Dur
ing tho first years of their course the
students spend their time In idleness,
and hold frequent dinner parties and
drinking bouts. They scrupulously
avoid the lectures, and. save all of their
energies until the last year, at the end
of which they are obliged to take an
examination the only ono covering
the whole college course. No one Is
admitted to examination before writ
ing an acceptable theme. Most of tho
students do hard and conscientious
work during the last year, aa that Is
the only way they can obtain their degree.
Nebraska Btarted hor long eastern
trip right by winning from Highland
Park, an old baseball rival, by tho
decisive score of 8 to 1. This Is oven
better than last year's winning aggre
gation was ablo to do, as the Bcoro was
then 0 to 1. Morse pitched the game,
and showed up In as good Torm as he
did hero in the Indian game. Tho
field was muddy and tho weather un
favorable. Two errors on tho part of
the CornhuBkers permitted the Blngie

Yesterday Nebraska met Iowa Uni
versity at Iowa City. Iowa was anx
ious for revengo on account of past de
feats. Tomorrow tho Cornhuskors
meet Decorah, Wednesday Knox at
Galesburg, Lombard Thursday, and
Notre Dame Friday. Tho outcome of
these games, especially the last, will
bo watched with interest. We won
from Knox last year, 10 to 0. and were
defeated by Notre Damo by tho close
margin of 2 to 0.
ABlde from tho reasonable profit we
would make on your business, In just
ice to ourselves we turn out this high
grade of work. The "Evans."

The much talked of homo track meet
did not come off Saturday as arranged.
Instead, tho track athletes congre
gated In the gymnasium at times dur
ing tho afternoon and discussed tho
situation. Nevertheless, thoy will bo
given a chance, and that in tho near
future. Tho time has been set for next
ThurXlay at 2:i p. m. At UiIb timo
some forty men will competo for a
place on the "Nebraska track team,
which is to meet the Knox men on
May 16. only eight days thereafter.
All tho men are now hard at work.

all is favorable this coming try-out
will be almost as good as the ordinary

Spring football began yesterday.
Only three men reported for practice
Westover, Cotton, and Benedict, of
the last year's football team. How
ever, several other men have declared
their intention of turning out. Tho
squad will likely bo reinforced after
the try-out for tho track team takes
place Thursday. Many dr those who
fall to make tho team will probably
turn their attention to football prac
tice. Everyone who possibly can
should don the harness and see how
far ho can kick tho pigskin. It is good
exercise, and besides there Is a fine
prize in store for tho best punter, in
tho way of a largo cup well worth
working for. Ex-Captain Westover
has charge of the work.
Student Tributes to Miss Smith.
In collecting the material which has
come to tho committee of arrange
ments, with a view to their presenta
tion, It has occurred to some of the
members that It might be well to add
such tributes as may be written by
students and members of the faculty.
Short paragraphs of a sentenco or two

These should be sent In at an early
