UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA, LINCOLN, WEDNESDAY, MAY 6, J903.
STUDENTS TO GIVE $3,000.
Plans Are Completed for Rocke
feller "Temple" Canvass.
The committee to complete the $100,
000 temple fund has Anally completed
Its planB for raising the $33,000. Ar
rangements have been mode whereby
anyone who wishes to contribute to
ward the fund can do so by either large
or small amounts. Blanks have been
printed and will be distributed for
those who will be asked to pledge for
larger sums, while hand books, bound
in neat form, will be put into the hands
of Btudents, alumni and friends of the
university who will be expected to so
licit among the people of the state. The
books are of different sizes, the small
est containing space for ten names.
Besides these measures, the students of
the University who more than any one
else ought to take an interest in tho
matter, will be given an opportunity
to contribute their quota. According
to the plan, each student will be per
sonolly canvassed by committees ap
pointed for that purpose.
Several days ago the chancellor
called the presidents of the different
classes into his office, laid the plan be
fore them and asked for their co-op
eration in carrying out the scheme.
Each president will be furnished with
a list of students in his class, lie will
appoint out of the number a commit
tee of four boys and two girls who are
to act with the president himself in
securing the student subscriptions,
which tho chancellor thinks ought to
average at least one dollar each for the
entire school. The law school will be
asked to pursue the same course that
the academics have promised to follow.
Tomorrow's convocation will be given
over to tho presidents of the four
classes, who will take the opportunity
to explain the working of the scheme.
Chancellor Andrews will also speak,
and explain further his views on the
Some criticism of the proposition to
accept the gift has been heard about
the campus. Those who are opposed
to receiving the $06,000 contend that
Nebraska can build up her own school.
Chancellor Andrews is heartily in favor
of accepting the gift of Mr. Rocke
feller's contribution, and does not share
the sentiments of those who are un
favorable. He thinks the building to
be erected with tho money is one of
tho greatest needs of the University,
and one that no legislature could be
induced to give to the Institution. IT
the students generously respond, about
$3,000 will bo raised by this subscription.
Decoration Day Excursion.
Final arrangements have been made
for the Decoration day excursion to the
cadet encampment at Wahoo. Tickets
will be put on sale tomorrow with the

Interesting Football Statistics.
Professor Edwin O. Dexter of the
University of Illinois, noted as a statis
tician, has compiled an Interesting set
of figures on college football covering
ten years from 1893 to 1902. In sum
minx up the results of his compila
tions Professor Dexter Btates them
briefly as follows:
1. About one college man In ten tho
country over, plays football.
2. About twice as large a proportion
of the men In the small colleges play
the game as In the large.
3. The proportion of men playing
seems to be slightly decreasing.
4. About one player in thlrty-flve is
sufficiently Injured each season as to
necessitate loss of time from college
5. The number of college football
players who are permanently Injured
or die from the effects of the game la
so small as to be practically a negli
G. College football is adequately hu
pervlsed in nearly all institutions.
7. The opinions of college officers
regarding the value of the game nre,
roughly, 17 to 1 in favor (weighed In
terms of enrollment).
8. The newspaper reports of Injur
ies to college football players seem
to be grossly exaggerated. Not so
much so in the case of players upon
TIME IS EXTENDED.
Songs for $100 Prize May Be
Handed in Till May 10.
The Nebraskan has endeavored to
keep tho matter of a college song be
fore tho students and friends of the
University. The need of a song dis
tinctly for the University of Nebras
ka is aparent. This need was realized,
and one hundred dollars were offered
for tho best Nebraska song. The offer
was made about a year ago, and It
was understood that the first of May
was the date Bet when the last manu
script would bo received by the com
mittee, which consists of Dr. Sherman,
Professor Fossler and Professor Jones
of Tennessee. Tho limit has been ex
tended, however, to May 10th, which
will give several days more for copy
to come in; and tho announcement of
tho result instead of being inado on
May 10th, as was reported, will not be
made until toward the close of the
semester. This is made necessary by
the fact that the third member of the
committee of judges lives at so great
a distance from here. All manuscript
will have to be sent to Tenneseee, for
tho opinion of Professor Jones, after
Professors Sherman and Fossler have
passed upon It.
The prize being such a large one It
was naturally supoBed that a large
number of entries would be made for
the contest. Such is not the case, how
ever. At tho present time only eight
entries have been made, but It Is hoped
that by the tenth of tho month a larger
number will have responded to the call
for an exercise of Nebraska talent.

Nebraska Goose Eggs Lutherans
and Gets Two Scores.

Nebraska yesterday retrieved her de
feat on Monday by trailing the colors
of Luther college In the dust. Ne
braska took a strong brace and played
in her usual form, giving her opponents
a shutout and crossing home plate
twice herself. The result of this game
Is especially gratifying from the fact
that It In a way makes good the defeat
by Iowa the day before, since
Luther college recently defeated Iowa
Luther college recentl ydefeated Iowa
by a score of 9 to 3. In a special re
port from a Nebraskan correspondent
it Is said that yesterday's game was an
exceptionally good one. Ixmgaenccker
proved hard to hit and fanned eight
men. Only five errors and five hits
were made by both teams, Nebraska
making three In each case.
The telegram follows:
In the best game of the season the
Cornhusker8 shut out Luther college
and scored twice herself. The men
took a big brace today and gave Long
aenecker the support deserved by Capt.
Townsend yesterday. Luther defeated
Iowa 9 to 3 the other day. and thus
Cornhuskers feel somewhat recom
pensed for their poor showing yester
day. Score by Innings:

Nebraska lost her first college game
Monday at the hands of Iowa to the
tune of 7 to 3. This news come as a
surprise to all, as Iowa was not con
sidered to be a very strong foe. Never
theless the Hawkeyes were In to win
and make up for a string of past de
feats by the Nebraskans In this con
test Nebraska seemed to have an off
day. She was unable to wield the
stick In her ordinary fashion and made
many costly errors. On the other harid,
Iowa put up a fine article of the nation
al game, making only two errors.
Townsend filled the box for Nebraska
and Bender caught. Today the Corn
huskers meet Knox.
Now that first team base ball is be
ing played at a distance, the Becond
team is getting in its work. It yes1

school in seven innings by a score of

for the second team are Thompson

MINNESOTA WANTS MEET.
Once Refused to Come, But Now
Asks for Nebraska Date.
Lincoln Shining Parlor, cor. 11th &0.
Ladles and gentlemen.
Track nthletlcs have assumed an
other peculiar attitude. Minnesota
wants to meet the Cornnusicers in
Minneapolis on May 1G. Thls-Mnform-atlon
wns received Monday by Dr.
Clapp In the way of Lie following tele
gram from Coach Williams: 'Can you
come to Minneapolis for dual track
meet with Minnesota May 10 for actual
expenses gunranteei.': Please answer
Immediately." The following reply was
wired at once: "Have Knox meet
scheduled for May 1G. Very sorry."
This reply brought another telegram
yesterday as follows: "Regular Inter
collegiate program and mile relay race
and representation in every event.
Firsts only to count. ?Lo expense
limit. Return meet next year."
The department is a little at n loss
to know Just how to Interpret this laBt
telegram from the Gopher manage
ment. Either some mistake was made
In sending Nebraska's reply or Minne
sota desired to offer a greater Induce
ment to get tho meet. The latter Is
likely the case as it is a good offer.
At any rate, Dr. Clapp has written tho
Minnesota management definitely in
regard to the matter.
Some time ago tho Nebraska man
agement made a desperate effort to
bring Minnesota here but were unable
to do bo. Now a home meet has been
scheduled with Knox on the very date
Minnesota desires a meet in Minne
apolis. Further, this date is little
more than a week away. Minnesota's
offer of 360 and a return meet next
year might have been quico lavorably
considered two weeks ago, but It is
almost certain that nothing will be
dono in regard to it now. The Corn
husker management desires a good
homo meet and will certainly get it
Morning drill by tho cadets has be
gun in earnest, and that all the com
panies are equally enthusiastic in the
contest' for the cup Is shown by tho
fact that they all turn out in equal
force In the morning, many of the
boys even mlBsing their breakfasts In
order to be on time. The competitive
drill this year will probably bo one of
the best yet held.
