Nebraska Boys Yesterday De
feated Lombard II to 9.
WilllSucceved G. F. Ross in Y. M.
C. A. Secretaryship.
It has been known to a few for some
weeks that Mr. Ross would resign his
position as general secretary of the
Y. M. C. A. here In order to pursue
graduate Btudy at Columbia University
next ear, but his resignation was not
formally announced until the time of
the committeemen's dinner on last Sat
urday evening. Since then the mem
bers of the board have been talking
over names Informally and yesterday
morning a meeting of the board was
held to consider the matter. As a re
sult, the position was, by unanimous
vote, offered to Dean Ringer and he
was strongly urged to accept It. Mr
Ringer has consented to "accept the
position and will enter upon his duties
at the close of Mr. Ross' term of ser
vice. He has been president of the
association for two years and Is well
acquainted with Its alms and needs.
He Is too well known and too highly
appreciated by the students and faculty
of this University to need any Intro
duction to them or any words of praise.
Nebraska kept up her winning pace
and another scalp hangs at the belts of
the Cornhusker nine. Lombard went
down In defeat yesterday In a hard-
fought game by a Bcore of 9 to 11.
Both Longanecker and Morse twirled
for Nebraska and Bender officiated be
hind the bat. as usual. The Cornhusk-
tis complain of bad treatment at the
hands of a prejudiced umpire, which
accounts In part for the closeness of
the score.
Today one of the big games of the
trip takes place, when Nebraska lines
up against Notre Dame. Iist year we
lost to Notro Dame by a close score
of 2 to 0. It Is the Intention of the
Cornhuskers to reverse the score today.

Since the senior class book and the
Sombrero have come from the press
there Is a widespread feeling of sore
ness on the part of many indeed we
may say of a large majority of the
students at the University, as well as
members of the faculty. The editors
of both books are also sore those of
the Sombrero, because they are ac
cused of having worked a "merciless
graft;" those of the senior book be
cause they are having a haid time
making both ends irleet. The students
have many knocks to give 'both books,
but the most severe criticism has fallen
on tho Sombrero. Whether this Is be
cause that book la the largest pub
lished at the University, and thus gave
occasion for too great expectations, or
because there Is really much fault to be
found with the book and its editors,
is the question at Issue. The students,
at least, as will be seen by the fol
lowing consensus, are firmly of the
opinion that there is something tho
c- A. has a project onl mUcr wlUl yie book something of a
t Tuesday evening which !, nature whlch ought to be rem
edied, if a remedy can bo found.
As soon as the Sombrero appeared,
and even before It came Into the hands
of the Btudonts, the editors of The Ne-
braskan were buttonholed by numer
ous students who asked that something
be done to check the progress of the
"graft" that seems to become worse
and more apparent in University af
fairs from year to year. As the an
nuals are conducted, there is oppor
tunity for the managers to make a
good profit or make nothing, for tho
whole responsibility is thrown upon
them. Having to bear the responsibil
ity, and stand good for any deficiency,
it is just that the managers of these
books Bhare the profits, if there be
any. But to sacrifice the quality of
the bookB, and disappoint both the
Dutell'H Cigars Unit's all
I Don Cameron's for a Bquare meal-
readers and advertisers for the sake
of gain, Is Indeed a "graft."
The Sombrero, according to the com
mon Judgment of almost all students.
Is a disappointment. Tho first and
most noticeable objection lies in the
fact that tho half-tones are of a lower
grade than ought to bo used in such
a book. There are about a half-do.en
different grades of engraving, and the
Sombrero is accused of securing sev
eral grades below tho highest. A com
parison of the two annuals shows the
senior book to bo superior in point of
ruts; yet, both books 'were printed
and put out by the same firm, on sim
ilar paper; tho pictures in both were
taken by the same photographer, and
the engraving done by tho same com
pany. There is only one conclusion to
be drawn from these facts, and that
tho Btudents have drawn with a venge
ance. In tho case of the senior book, it
has always been taken for granted
that if tho editor-in-chief and business
manager contrived to issue a book of
which sufficient copies were sold to
make expenses, they were to be con
gratulated. But toward the Sombrero
tho student body takes a different at
titude; for while the senior book can
not levy an assessment upon the vari
ous University organizations, the Som
brero can and does. And the amount
so contributed reaches a sum of such
magnitude that it is likely to startle
one who has never stopped long enough
to make a short calculation.
Referring to this matter Of annuals
and their "grafting," one student said:
"For years the students nave, for the
major part, felt that the annual mana
gers had primarily In view the making
