DENVER BEATEN IN HARD GAME
Nebraskan's Representative Gives Complete Account of Game As
He Saw It from the Side Lines.
On a sandy field and before a rather back twenty yards. Eager made four
small crawd the University of Ne
braska dofeated the Denver Univer
sity by a score of 10 to 0.
This ran not be taken as a fair es
timate of the superiority of the Ne
braskans over their opponents. It was
purely and simply a day off for Ne
braska, which was demonstrated by her
repeated fumbling. With all justice It
' may be said that Nebraska herself,
kept the score as low as It was. Re
peatedly she would take the ball down
the field by steady gains until within
fifteen or twenty yards of the enemy's
goal, only to lose It on a fumble, then
Denver would kick out of danger and
Nebraska had it all to do over again.
Never at any time during the game
was the Denver team dangerous, but
they played a defensive game which
As to weight, the Denver team was
fully the equal of the Nebraska boys,
and her back field was much heavier.
-Her ends played star games, very sel
dom failing to get their man, and get
ting down well under punts.
AgaiiiFt such a team as this the Ne
"., braska men made a good showing when
all Is taken Into consideration
The day was hot, with a wind from
the north which took the lllo out of
the players. The visitors had also the
high altitude to allow for, which made
no small-different e in their work.
Following Is the game by inches:
The Nebraska team came onto the
field at 3:25, the Denver team follow
ing at 3:29. Both teams took a short

Sophomores Lend Assistance and
All Runs Smcothly.
The Freshmen met yesterdaj and
made several attempts to launch their
craft upon the troubled seas of class
politic? But the sea was running
high and they were obliged to postpone
the launching to a later date. A large
number of Sophomores and upper
classmen, drawn by a sense of idle curi
osity wore there to wltne&s the pro
ceedings and used their superior craft
and judgment will sinister effect upon
the unsuspecting Freshmen
Acting Chairman Johnson, acting up
on his own volition, called the meet
ing to order A motion was made to
eject the Sophs, but unfortunately It
was not seconded. The Sophs, re
mained and took a lively interest in
all the proceedings, posing ns Fiesh
men and expressing authortUUlvf opin
ions upon tho momentoua matters
brought up for discussion.
The Freslfmcn evidently did not
think that any of their number was
fit for the position of temporary chair
man, so they bestowed the honor upon
Jack Clark, a Sophomore. Mr. Clark
presided with grace and dignity, show
ing a Btrlct impartiality and an admir
able judgment In making his appoint
ments. He went at Tris work wkh a
spirit of determination and had his
hop committee made up and announced
it before tho end of the meeting. Fol

sake of J,holr own physical welfare, re

man will come armed with a club pre
pared to take bloody vengeance upon
any ineligible Intruders. If the whole
affair had not been so utterly ridicu
lous we might have been obliged to
uncork of vials of acidic condemnation.
We fear lest charges of fraud may be
brought against the present adminis
tration, and if these charges can be
-proved the effect wjll be most damag
ing. The "contagion is spreading and
it is quite natural that It -would attack
such a virile body as tho Freshman

The Juniors mot yesterday morning
and straightened out the difficulties
arising from the contest proceedings
over last Monday's election. The re
sult wns a surprise to many, as there
weie few that had any Idea that the
whole ordor of things would be re
versed and an entirely new election
held. But such was tho case and the
story of all that came tq, pass at yes
terday's election Is an Interesting one.
Before entering Into details It Vilght
be well to announce tho results o the
second election. W. J. Brown was
lit. There weie 84' Juniors present.
seven of whom did not vote. Mr.
elected president by a vole of r7 to
Brown waB dofeated In last Monday's
election by Mr. A. II. J,undln. who
polled 53 votes, which gave the latter
tho majority of the votes. But ob 90
votes were counted and there were orily
81 Juniors present according to sworn
statements. It was evident that fraud
had been practiced. To settle this
difficulty was the business of yester
Piesldent-Elcct Lundin called the
meeting to order, and the minutes of
the last meeting were read by Miss
Jansa, the secretary of the class. Mr.
Lundin opened the meeting by request
ing the contesting faction to state Its
case. Mr. Beers opened up with the
statement that at last Monday's elec
tion foul play had beOn practiced, aB
98 votes had been cast while It waB
known that only 84 persons were pres
ent at the meeting.
A motion was made to rescind tho
action of the last meeting. Mr. Lun
din overruled tho motion as illegiti
mate, Btatlng that both sides may. have
shared In the foul play and that each
might be equally guilty, and that the
extra votes were just as likely Jo havo
been cast by his opponents as by his
supporters. The house appealed to thp
chair and personal testllhony was
called for. Three men swore, that there
were more votes cast than persons
present. One man stated that 84 per
sons were present, another said 83, and
an old man In the gallery and a third
declared that he counted 82 persons
present, exclusive of two visitors.
However another man maintained that
he counted 92 Juniors in the room at
the time of the election. One man who
had stated beforehand that to his per
sonal knowledge only 84 wore present,
refused to make a statement, and waB
not called upon or urged. The original
moUon to rescind the election was
again called for 51331 carried by final
vote. At( this point some excitement was
aroused. Mr. Lundin called a meeting
for next Monday and declared the pres
ent meeting adjourned. His authority
to call a meeting was questioned and
a brisk parliamentary fusllade was Bet
In action. The meaning of tho motion
rto rescind the election was questioned
and tlie chair stated that the,entlre
list of offlders was included. Inls made
It clear that Mr. Beers was still presi
dent, and that Mr. Lundin had no fur-
tner power to act. The iormer took
Tho class thea proceeded to a new
election. "Tho candidates were W.'-Jr
Brown anff A. J. Lundin, who had been
pitted against each pther In tho for- ,
racr election. A cohimjtteo' was ap
pointed to take an official count of all
who were preseW and all not Juniors
were obliged toHsolate themselves from
the rest -of the body. Tho count showed,
that there were 84 Juniors present.
Brown " received 57 votes and Lundin "
