UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA, LINCOLN, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER J4, J903.
Two Squads to Be Organized for
the Indian Game.
A new and systematic plan of root
ing has been worked out for Saturday's
game, and If the arrangements that
are being made are carried out in detail
a greeting will be extended to the Has
kell Indians that they will always re
member with terror. It is intended to
have two bands of rooters on opposite
aides of tho field, one occupying the
choicest section of the east bleachers
and the other tho center of the grand
stand. Under the direction of their
respective leaders they will vie with
each other in furnishing material for
wild dreams for tho Indians for many
moons to come.
The main band of rooters will occu
py the east bleachers where tho best
seats will be reserved for them. Fifty
men can be accommodated In the
grandstand without extra charge. Tick
ets will be given out for the seats on
the athletic field Friday afternoon at 4
o'clock. Aa only a limited number of
men can be provided for thoBC desiring
those tickets are urged to be expeditious
in getting them. Clark E. Bell will at
tend to the distribution and all desir
ing tickets must.be sure and meet him
on the field Friday at the afore stated
No favoritism wilKbe shown in the
distribution of tickets, such as circulat
ing a few of tho favors beforehand.
The best men are wanted to come out
and try for a ticket. Megaphones will
as in the past be a requirement for eli
gibility to serve in. either of the two
squads. Two squad leaders have been
appointed In the persons of Messrs.
Elliott and Hewitt. Mr. Boll will direct
the rooting of both squads. A third
leader may be appointed to help in tak
ing care Of the larger tfquad.
A movement is being set on foot for
placing a fake band along with the
rooting squad in the grandstand. This
band will consist of ten players and
will be picked from all members of the
student body who are able to handle
an instrument and do not belong to tho
cadet band. Each squad is expected to
strive to outdo the other, and each will
have a band to help out.
The game Saturday will be a hard
one. Tho Indians have always been a
strong proposition to meet in the paBt,
and they come next Saturday with in
creased strength. Nothing would de
light them more than to return vic
torious to their tepees with a bunch of
CornhUBker scalps. Such ind.eed is their
avowed Intention and eyery man with
a strong pair of lungs and a mega
phone la urged to turn out and help
frustrato their designs.
PREPARE FOR THE REDSKINS
Team Hard at Work Again. Some
Secret Practice Held.
In spite of the rain and heavy field
practice wont on Just the Bame last
Lante was Tn at quartern place of
Bender, who is nursing bis ankle and
saving It for the game against the In
dians next Saturday.
Open practice waa carried on for
about half an hour, then the field was
cleared of all spectators and the team
wont to work behind closed doors. This
certainly looks like business.
The coming game will be one of the
hardest on the schedule and the team
needs 'to be In alYnost perfect condition
for it. This stage it is rapidly ap
proaching and the back field is begin
ning to get off with that clock like pre
cision which charactorlzedthelr work
The excellent defensive work against
the strong Denver team shows the Im
provement we all wish to see. The of
fensive game which the team played
there can not bo taken for a single In
stant as a fair sample of their work.
Let those who are dissatisfied with the
way tho team showed up out thero re
member a few of tho odds against
which our boys had to contend. The
handicap Bender had in his ankle is al
most a Bufllclent reason for the small
The Haskell Indians come to us with
a most enviable reputation. Those who
have seen them play say that they are
stronger even than last year, not only
stronger as to mere brute Btrength, but
also in scionce and on top of it all,
they are speedy as deer.
To say that it will be a good game
Is putting it mildly. Come out and Bee
lt for yourselves. You'll never regret
it for a minute.
The team needs your support, come
out Saturday and show your interest
and als your faith In Nebraska's win

ations to go to Ft. Riley, Kas., to at

regulars and national guards, are ex
pected to "be on the ground, seven
states being represented.
Freshmen Will Start Right.
The Freshmen are making arrange
ments for a class meeting to be hela
under their own auspices Monday. They
resent the action of the Sophomores
and upperclassmen in seeking to im
pose upon them, and will take care to
see that none of these genera are ad
mitted to the next meeting. A com
mittee has been appointed to secure a
class roll at the executive ofllce and
each man upon entering the chapel next
Monday will be required to give his
name. The Freshmen are determined
to start things right and will show
their superiors in age and experience
a few things about clasB organization,
athletics and spirit. They propose to
make the class of '07 one of the largest
and most meritous classes that have
ever gone forth trom our Institution.

A. NEW CHALLENGE
South Dakota Desires Debate,
But Can't Be Accomodated.
South Dakota Is the latest aspirant
lo enter the lists with a challenge of
debate to Nebraska. The secretary of
the debating association Is In receipt
of a challenge from thp Oratorical and
Debatllng leaguo of that Institution.
They are anxious to entor Into a
compaoj, that would be effective for a
space of two years.
Although the Dakotans would un
doubtedly prove to be worthy foes of
Nebraska, still, for the present, tho
challenge will not bo accepted for sev
eral reasons. In the first place It has
not been decided whether Nebraska will
have two debates or three to handle
this year. If only two, the schedule
will probably consist of the usual con
tests with the old time rivals, Missou
ri and Kansas. Moreover Nebraska has
had opportunities for taking on larger
contests, and in view of this fact South
Dakota could hardly be considered at
But there Is nothing to show that the
South Dakota debaters would not be
an aggressive body to meet, and the
ambition of that University In seeking
to arrange contests with other Insti
tutions Is commendable. The college
is branching out along many lines, and
it may be that In the future Nebraska
can arrange to meet them In forensic as
well as athletic contests.

Dr. Condra Says Athletics Are
on Right Basis at Colorado.
Tho charges of professionalism pre
ferred agilnst Colorado have gradually
boen resolved Into thfn air, under the
Investigation that has been rarrled on
since the damaging reports were Bent
out from Denver. Yesterday Dr. Condra
explained the situation as it now stands
to a Nebraskan reportef. It appears
now that the only source of disagree
ment existing with Colorado Is in
regard to tho ono year limit rule,
which Is not In force In that state.
Nebraska urges that Blnce Colorado
will play here, that they abide by that
rule, which Is In force In this state and:
required by Nebraska of all tho rest of
the teams that she has scheduled.
Somo time ago Prof. W. W. Cook,
corresponded with tho authorities at
Boulder In regard to tho charges of
professionalism that had been preferred .
against Colorado and received an as
surance that tho 'charges were unfound
ed. He received a letter written by
Arthur Allln, chairman of the athletic
committee, in reply to an inquiry by
President James H. Baker of that in
stitution, in which ample proof was
given to refute tho charges of profes
sionalism, and a statement made that
tho only objection was that no one-year
residenco was required. Subsequent de
velopments tend to prove that Mr. Allin
was entirely correct In his Btand, and
that tho only cause of disagreement
was the one-year residence rule.
Dr. Condra says that the authorities
at Boulder are trying to conduct their
athletics In the right way and are put
ting everything on the right basis. He
feels that they have been misrepresent
ed to some extent and that it is only
just to them that their rights be recog
nized. Ho Bpoke of many comments ho
had heard of the conduct of the foot
ball boys while In Denver and took

A "Freshomore" Hop.
According to reports now in circula
tion the hop committeo appointed by
tho Freshman meeting Monday has de
elded to act and will hold a hop in dead
earnest. It will be held under an alias,
however, and will be known as tho
Freshomore hop. The absence of one
of tho leading committeemen will in
nowlBe endanger the success of the hop,
as his placo will be filled. The com-,
mittee will push affairs and announce
the date later on! Much interest Is
centered in this function, as It means
tho introduction of a new social fea
ture Into University life. It is expected
all classmen will patronize the hop, and
what was started as a joko is turning
out to be a bona fide proposition.
