PRACTICE IS LIGHT
Coach Booth Talks of Denver
Game and the Haskell's.
The practlco last night was light
for the flrst team, In comparison to
the work they have been doing In the
last few days.
The 'Varsity lined up against the
scrubs for a time and made things
lively. This wo.rk Ib .rapidly bringing
the team to a Btate of perfection. What
weak points were In the line and backB,
In. their offensive as well as defensive
play, are being rapidly eliminated. This
was clearly demonstrated by the work
against the strong team from South Da
kota, which paid us a friendly call
on Saturday last.
The lino is growing In strength every
day and rapidly developing Into the
famous stono wall which belongs par
ticularly to Nebraska. The line plunges
of the Dakota halves were blocked In
many Instances In a stylo which Is de
serving of" special notice.
In the back field tho Interference
gets Into form with a rapidity and cer
tainty which Is good to behold.
Every Indication points to the devel
opment of a team which will be the
equal In. every respect of tho winning
aggregation of last year. The schedule
this yar Is heavy, but with tho pres
ent outlook Nebraska has nothing to

Indian team which Is to play hero a
week from Saturday. In Bpeaklng of
their line-up ho said:
"Tho Indiana will probably bo as
strong this year as thoy were last. Al
though some of tholr best players have
left, they have gained others who hold
enviable reputations in football cir
cles. "Archlequett, tho captain of laat
year's team, Is gone, llkowlso Itcd Wa
ter, and- Brain. But In regard to Red
Water I consider him to bo -a much
ovor-rated man. Ho is big and brawny
but his reputation and namo was about
tho best port of him. Ho did not play
half the game that many of tho other
line men did who received little or no
"Brain and Archlquett wore both
good men and tho Itidlans will mlsB
them In the line-up thlB year. However
they have gained one man who will
be a regular host In himself. Ho played
for a number of years with tho strong
Carlisle team In tho cast, and was with
them during tholr remarkable season
of '99. He is a man who understands
tho game and will play It to win."
This proves that tho Indian game
will be one which will try to tho full
est capacity the strength of tho team.
No one can afford to miss this game.
In regard to the game with Donvor,
to bo played there next Saturday, Coach
"That victory of tho Agricultural
College over Denver made mo feel good.
It almost assures us a victory ami we
can't afford to go out there anS loso.
Of course, wo know nothing certainly
about tholr team, bul wo will go out
there to win."
The team leaves for Denver Thurs
day evening. It Is impossible to pub
lish the line-up In this Issue, but It
will appear tomorrow.
There comes vague murmurs from
"tho mountain, city to tho effect that
the team- is being loaded for tho Ne-
, braska game. This report has not' been
yenned. Tho charge ol proressionai
Isnf has been. made. bu.t the meager
attainable facts seems to discredit this.
True It Is that on the Monday follow
ing: the game with tne Agricultural
College four new men appeared sim
ultaneously on the.flehl. u is claimed
,the M all old vaen who could, not be
Induced to come out before. Only this
much we know, that one of these men
haa been working on the railroad up
until tho last day or so quite true, he
might bo taking a course In engineering.
The training table Is running full
swing and tho men aro getting down to
good solid training.
Threo now men have bcon added,
Robinson, Eager and Mason. This
makes nlno men who now gather

Laundry Club Misrepresonted.
The local laundrymen have been
making statements In regard to tho
Studonts' Laundry club, that arc mis
leading and, we believe, deliberate In
fringements upon the truth. In yoB
torday ovenlng's edition of the News
they aro credited with saying that
the prices paid tho Omaha establish
ment doing tho work wcro an high aB
those regularly charged hero, ns tho
Omaha concern haB sprung a list of
high prices from which It made the IB
per cent discount. It Is further stated
that this list 1b what Is known horo
as the short time list.
This Ib the gist of their representa
tions and to ono uninformed In regard
to the situation It might bo mlslead
ing. As a matter of fact the list used
by tho Laundry club Is ono that Ib ex
actly Identical with the Mat of tho
leading laundries of Lincoln. There Ib
not ono cent's variance on any article
The statomont that the prices paid
at Omaha are as high as those charged
here is wholly erroneous. The Laun
dry club allowB a 2G per cent discount
from a list oxactly tho name as that
of tho Evans laundry, of this place, and
tho statement that a short time list
Is used is puro falsehood. Hence In
two particulars do tho Lincoln laun
drymen misrepresent tho Laundry dab
and tholr Intentions to deceivo arc so
apparent that tuoro Is no reason to bo
llovo that thoy wcro misinformed or
If thoy had dealt fairly with tho stu
dents In tho first placo, Instead of at
tempting to IncrcaBo tholr own gains
merely because thoy thought thoy had
the opportunity thoy could have spared
themselves a great deal of trouble and
saved all tho work that Is now going
to Omaha. That they woro not In such
Btraltened circumstances Is proved
by tho fact that ono laundry company
hero openly declared that It was" not In
tho trust and Is now trying to cajole
tho (Undents Into patronizing it by of
fering a reduction. Thoy had tholr op
portunity for doing the right thing and
failed to take advantage of it aud their
assertions, especially whon so plainly
erroneous, will do them little good.
For tho benefit of ItB patrons the
management of tho Laundry club states
that It has solid backing and superior
facilities for doing tho work. All con
tracts will bo carried out and a rato
given that will onablo students to have
tholr work dono at a much moro rea
eonable rate than tho laundrymen of
Lincoln Jiavo offered. Tho work done
In Omaha Is as good as, can bo turned
out hero, and the Lincoln laundries
have no right to complain of tho stu
dents sending their laundry to Omaha.
They have made much moro out of tho
studonts than thoy over contributed to
University enterprises, and thelr's Is an
Ideal example of a caso where greed
has ovor-reached Itself.

Prof. Caldwell briefly spoko of tho
progress of the work In tho Unlvorsltyr
stating that threo years ago tho mem
bers of tho boaru decided to cease ront
4ng a building and build ono of tholr
own. Funds were solicited from tho
students, faculty, and city peoplo and
$3,000 was raised. The settlement now
has a lino lot, a three-story house, a
basement and a room at the top that
can be used.
At the beginning of last year the
settlement was $300 In dobt. This sum
has been paid and there Is now practi
cally no dobt at all, although $25 may
yet have to bo raised. Prof. Prevoy
and wife and student helpers reside In
the house. $400 or $500 will be needed
to carry out the plans for this year,
and the board has an absolute faith
that this amount can bo raised.
In, the way of needs Prof, Caldwell
pointed out the necessity of a night
school, a school of domestic science,
work in manual training, art, drawing
and sewing, the field is unlimited and
the work Is to be, mutual and co-operative.
There is an opening for each
one of us to contribute our money and
to volunteer our services and spirit.
I It Is something that will give us a
higher conception of llfo. We can
learn from tho poor and humblo the
problom of lifting up and bolng lifted
up. Each ono should consider UiIb
problem and see what ho can do. If
each ono Joins In, In a llttlo way, and
contributes what he can, tho sum to
tal will bo a vast aggregate.
