PLAY AT LAWRENCE
Kansas Will Have Came at Home
Practice on Campus.
Final news has- came from Kansas.
The game is to be played at Lawrence.
The athletic board has taken action and
everything is settled.
Tills game comes on the 14th of No
vember and will attract a good deal of
attention, as KansaB is the old rival of
Nebraska' In all sports. If enough tick
ets can be sold it is very probablo that
an excursion to lawrence will be run
with .a rate of $3.00 for the round trip.
To get this rate it will be necessary
to sell over 300 tickets. Therefore it's
up to the students. Do you want an
excursion? "Will you go to Lawrence

Benedict took his place at quarter
for the first part of the practice and
he was succeeded by Lantz.
"Eager, Bell and MarBh were doing

The practice was short, lasting only
a -little after 5 o'clock.
The second, team was also out work

a game next Friday with "Stromsburg.

Now that the tennis tournament is
over and the issue decided, our cham
pions will not after all have an oppor
tunity of proving uielr worth against
Kansas. The Kansas management
seemB to have forgotten that a meet
was expected to be held, and the cor
respondence in regard to the matter has
been broken off.
Up to this year it has been the cus
tom for Kansas to play here in the
Bprlng, and for Nebraska to play a re
turn match in the fall. Shortly after
the opening of school the management
hero entered into correspondence with
the director of athletics at Kansas Uni
versity, with a view to arranging for
the usual tournament. A very unsat
isfactory reply was received and since
then no reply whatever could .be ob
tained to the letters of Inquiry for
warded. In view of the hitherto cor
dial rotations of the tennis clubs of
both Universities it Is with regret that
the management here Is obliged to an
nounce that no tournament can be
Scrubs to Meet Stromsburg.
The manager of the second team has
been successful In his efforts to fill
the vacancies that have occurred In the
schedule, and as a result of his dili
gence the scrubs will go to Stromsburg
Friday to meet tho high school team
of that place. Tho scrubs mado a good
showing in defeating the strong Lin
coln Medics last Saturday and as a con
sequence of this vict rv are confident
in their strength and u sure of a tri
umphant return from Stromsburg. Tl.ey
mnv rortflnd the leneth of their trip a
has always been one or the strongest
hign school teams In tho Btato, and a

thing to be desired.

The Freshmen have been making ar
rangements to hold their next class
meeting In peace, and to keep the dis
turbing members of other classes out.
The registrar has been appealed to, and
the office Is now engaged In making a
list of the eligible members of tho
class of 1907. not Including, of course,
new medical and law students. By
means of this list It will be attempted
to admit only Freshmen to the Fresh
men meetings, and to exclude all out
siders. The next meeting will probably be
held the coming Monday morning.
A full attendance of members of tho
class of 1907 Is expected. There has
been some suggestion that a few Fresh
men will be fooled Into staying away
from tho meeting, thinking the class
elections are over and done. But moBt
Freshmen know, in spite of the various
wild rumors floating around concern
ing elections, hop committees, etc.,
how matters really wore at the last
meeting. They know . that a Fresh
man, and not a Sophomore presided as
acting chairman over the first meet
ing. They know that no Sophomore
was elected president or anything else.
They know that the chapel hour ended
and the meeting dispersed before the
ballots cast for temporary chairman
had been counted, and that the meet
ing next Monday morning will elect
a temporary chairman.
This temporary chairman will bo the
one to appoint a c&nfltltutlon commits
