Inducements for Trip to K. C.
With a score of 10 to 0 piled up
against them the Indians strolled back
to their wigwams in Kansas from
which they came to do battle with the
valiant warriors of Nebraska.
The game as played on the Nebraska
field Saturday afternoon before a large
and enthusiastic audience was replete
with sensational runs and marveloiiH
exhibitions of tackling.
The Indians put up a clever and
plucky game but were outclassed and
outplayed at every turn.
The day was perfect; cold enough to
giveanap to the play, but not too mm h
10 te unpleasant for the spectators.
Long before the appointed hour the
grounds were thronged with a happy
good-natured crowd, which evinced to
the limit the good spirits It possessed
by frequent outbursts In yells and
The arrival ot the band added zest
to the occasion and made the hearts
of -he lovers of the sport warm to the
wont of cheering.
A most unhappy delay ensued over
the subject of officials. Thru- is an
erroneous Idea prevalent that much
of the blame for it falls on the Ne
braska management. The blame must
fall on the Haskell men only.
A full week before the game the
Haskeil managers wrote up to know
If a certain Kansas man would bo ac
ceptable to Nebraska. Manager Blick
nor immediately telegiaphed back that
the man would not.
M hen the Haskell team arrived In

ka had i ejected was with them as the!.

tills that the Nebraska men had a full
and Just right to register a heartfelt
and strenuous kick which they proceed
ed 'o do.
The matter was finally adjusted by
.Ne.raska meeting Haskell halfway,
thereby doing all that was possible to
settle the dispute amicably.
The Nebraska management and es
pecially Mr. Buckner deserve much
credit for the manner In which they
conducted the affair and the thorough
gentlemanly way in which they treated
the Haskell men.
At ten minutes pas' tour the game
Nebraska kicked off to ilie Indians,
and the big game was on. For the first
ten minutes of play It was a good stiff
game. Punts were freely exchanged,
in which work the Nebraska team had
"TTTe"TJPtter of it.-
After this preliminary work the
Varna settled down aaul by a good
stiaight football Eager "was sent over
for the first touch-down. Goal failed.
This was all the storing that was
rir.ne In this half.
After the Intermission of ten min
utes the. team came trotting back to
- the field- from the dressing rooms
headed' by John Westover's bulldog,
with a determination In their tread

This half was Nebraska's game from
the first snapback till the curtain went
down on the laBt scene. They ran the
Indiana ends, bucked their line in
every place and sent the tackles around
the ends for long gains.
To be brief, the team simply played
the Indians oft their feet and walked
over them after they were down
The much vaunted Archlquett was
mowed down like a wisp of straw and
the terrible Fallls was swallowed up
by the dust which rose from beneath
the feet of tho half's wearing the scar

Two more touchdowns were made

Although the score in this game was
not as large as the one of last year,
the defeat administered was more de
cisive. Nebraska carried the ball al
most four hundred yards to the Indians'
The playing of the Nebraska team
was a complete surprise and revela
tion to all the spectators, and as one
very aptly put it. "The Nebraska team
was certainly the ship which found
To Bum It up In a sentence, the team
was playing faster and better ball on
Saturday than it did at any time during
last year's season. This seems like too
sweeping a statement, but we can say
it as an absolute fact and are ready to
back tip our auction.
The game next Saturday will -be a
hummer. The strong Kansas team was
able to defeat the Colorado aggrega
tion by only the bare margin of one
point, the score being 12 to 11. No
telling what improvement the Colorado
team may make In a week's lime.
Concerning the proposed trip to Kan
sas, a rate of $3.00 can bo secured over
the U. P. railroad, providing over 106
tickets are sold.
The football management Is consid
ering another proposition. This is to
take up the first idea of a Kansas trip.
The train will go to Kansas City, the
excursionists whl .stop at that city for
luncheon and then run down to Ijiw
rence for the game and back to Kan
sas City for dinner, aln,o spending the.
evening. The train will start back to
Lincoln after the theatres In Kansas
City are closed, thereby offering other
Inducements thai, the football game to
those who take advantage of the trip.
This way the fare will be $5.00. The
management asks for .-undent opinions
on this nibject as to whlcn trip would
br jiivff rable.

be a football rally at chapel. Keep

SCENE OF STRIFE
Freshmen Guards Fight Sophs
While Class Deliberates.
The war-cloud that has been hanging
low for the past two weeks over the
Freshman political activities, burst
with wild fury yesterday morning, and
the effects of the shock have not yet
died away. The Freshmen according
to their annual custom, met to choose
their officers, but having neglected to
secure the consent of their elderly superiors-
-the Sophomoror. and tho lat
ter holding that a Freshman election
would be contrary to law witho.it their
consent having been obtained, the two
contending forces clashed, while the
upper classmen stood by and viewed
the conflict with awe and wonder.
Within the chapel were assembled
the members of the Freshman class,
each man being there by right of his
position In the University and the po
tent piece of cardboard which pro
claimed his privilege to enter. With
out was the multitude of belligerent
Sophs, who assailed with valorous vio
lence the Freshmen guards, who fought
nobly in behalf of their cause. Time
and time again the Sophs charged up
the stairs and fought with telling ef
fec. until driven back by the energetic
counter-onslaught of the Freshmen
guards, they were forced to descend
and begin the attack over again. The
air was filled with turbulent cries, re
volving limbs and flying anatomy, be
sides numerous nrtlclea of wearing ap
parel. A few of the Juniors and Se
niots assayed to take a hand In pro
moting the hostilities, but the main
body of upper classmen stood passive
ly by. us was consistent with their
dignity and reaped a full harvest of
amusement without giving l enumera
While the battle raged wildly with
out a solemn and Impressive meeting
was in progress within. The Fresh
men, left practically to their own guid
ance, were making gallant efforts to
launch their craft upon the troubled
waters of class politics, fearful lest
at any moment their gallant defend
ers should be overpowered and the
door burat open, admitting a living
tide to overwhelm them or to drive
tnem to the far corners of the room
for safety. But the door held fast and
the business of the class was taken
up and a good start made
After considerable balloting nnd
wrangling the results showed that Jo
seph Clark had received a majority of
votes for temporary chairman. While
the nominations wore in order, the
room wos In disorder. Five or six
men with o common purpose In view
were constantly on the floor, each-one
striving to convince the chairman that
he was entitled to first consideration.
But the chairman rose to the emerg
ency and the election was finally ac
complished. A secretary was then elected, and
strange to say. an audacious Soph, who
had ventured' in and who had taken
an active part In the proceedings, was
honored with a nomination. But con
trary to traditions and usages already
established he went down to defeat.
Miss Van Horn was elected amid vio
lent attendant clrqumstances.
The Sophs having boon repulsed in
front, assailed the rear, and only the
strong right arm of John Uhl prevent
ed them from gaining admission
through the rear. door of the chapel
leading In from the armory. Like the
Angel of Justice he stood there, de
scribing circles nnd semicircles In tho
air with his keen-edged BWord. while
in mangled heaps about him lay the
bruised and dying foemen. Horntitut
foiled the Tuscans, but John Uhl beat
back the Sophomores, and' I he armory
door still stands Intact.
From then on the meeting proceeded
In comparative peace, although the
Sophomores were unrelenting in their
clnmors for admission. The business
ot the meeting was finally accomplished
and the Freshmen filed forth In tri
umph, having, as they paid they would,
held a meeting despite the Sopho
mores Their certificate scheme worked
to perfection, and only one or two
Sophs passed the sentinels.
But now comes the aftermath. The
Sophs have designs upon the person
of one Clarence Johnson a man who
had done much to preserve the entity
of his class and to spoil all the demor
alizing plans that had been formed.
They followed him to the Mechanic
Arts building, where he had betaken
himself to attend a recitation. Over
taking him as he waB In the act of as
cending tho stairs thoy attempted to
lay violent hands upon him, but a body
of Freshmen came to his rescue and
the battle waged fiercely. Ho clung to
the railing for dear life, and as a re
sult there will be some renalr work
for the carpenters. Some of the rounds
gave wny. but Mr. Johnson was not
taken. He succeeded in making his
cycape and the Sophs were obliged to
depart empty handed.
The Freshmen will meet again next
Monday to complete the election of the
balance of their officers. The following
spirited poem has been handed to us
on the uubjeet, and we give It space
Stood at the door
And wildly stamped
Upon the floor.
He longed to enst
His eager eyes
Into the realm
Of Freshman ties.
Ho tried to Join
The surging mass,
But thru' the door
He could hot pass.
He there saw how
The "Freshles" green
Could hold him back
Behind the scene.
We know you're sore.
You left your foot-prints
At our door.
But some of us
Thru' the hurdling race
Have left our palm prints
In your face.
