The matter wok well worked up last

college, Tennessee did not feel Justi

It was the aim of Di Bolton and

offered the prize, to offei ajjtlmulus to

and patriotism of eveiy University
student, and one that would lle for
years to come. Such a bong could be
employed upon all occasions, such as
student mass meetings. debating
events, and rallies of arlous kinds
And it Is Indeed regrettable that the
result should be so disappointing when

whole matter Is allowed to drop now
it is doubtful If It would be revived
We think that it is safe to say that
we hae the talent beie in the Unlver

emphasized by the fact that only one

There Is no prospect now of the offer
being repeated, and from present Indi

lowed to drop.
One -ot the surprises of the registra
tion was the unparalleled increase In
the number of Latin students. Prof.
Barber announces that the increase in
the department amounts to nearly 40
per cent over last yearks showing.
About ninety students registered for
Freshman Latin and the class was
split up Into threes divisions, one be
ins added which meets at 10:30. This
Is certainly a very encouraging pros
pect for the Latin department, and
means an Increase In the future In
the membership of the higher classes.

The line-up with the scrubs last
night seemed like a touch of the real
thing. The 'Varsity has a Job on its
hands in the shape of coping with this
husky bunch of men. For the most
part all the scrub men know tho game
and play It for ull there is in it, and
for n good marry there 1b quite a little
The "Varsity showed up well They
advanced the ball steadily and almost
at will, but they had to work. Two
.sets of backs were usedand In this way
tho work was kept fresh and the vim
and enthusiasm not allowed to lag.
Clark, trying for full, while a little
slow, is a sure gainer and on art end
run usually lands his man. Benedict
and Ducray at halves are both strong,
speedy men and play the game as
though they understood It. Marsh, try
ing for half, while rather light, has
proved an excellent ground gainer, and
Is able to see and take advantage of
an opportunity In a very satisfactory
manner. Jim Bell plays the same
game he did of old1. Don't you remem

There's a man behind tire line for

The large bleachers on the enst side

The Grand Island College team,

a gootl reputation 1 ast year they held
the state championship outside of the

one of the most successful social af
