Mass Meeting This Morning
Team Prepares for Colorado.
Thoro 1b to bo something doing this
morning at chapel In the way of a foot
ball rally. Only two days until the
Colorado game, so come out and get
your vocal cords tuned up for the oc
casion. ...e football spirit Is getting well
under way and if every one will only
do his share in keeping it up and push
ing a good thing along, Nebraska will
soon be in a position to hold up her
head among the beat of colleges as to
spirit as well as everything else.
Be sure and come out thiB morning
vand bring your friends with you.
Last night's practice consisted of
squad practico and' a line-up against
the scrubs. Bender was In at quarter
for a short time. He Is potting his
ankle and does not crfro to do any
work which will endanger a new
strain. Lantz took his place and sent
the team through their work with
vim and snap which was good to see.
Tho work against the scrubs was
good. Punts were exchanged during
tho entire practico and no plays wore
Tho ends and tackles get down un
der Benedict's punts in a highly sat
factory manne'r, very seldom does' the
man advance tho ' ball any distance,
usually be Is thrown back.
Robertson was out and went in for
signal practico for a short time. His
ankle is still very tender and has to
be used1 with care. He will probably
bo in, condition by Saturday.
Standoven, a most promising man,
on the scrubs, who has beon doing
some good work in the nightly line-up
against the 'Varsity, was given tho
signals last night and went In at end
on tho "Varsity during part of tho
practico against thoM scrubs.
Cotton may be given a chance to
kick goals In tho Colorado games. He
has been doing some good work in
that line for tho past two or throe
Tho one feature of the team's work
at present which stands out above all
else, Is tholr speed. No time is lost
In lining up, tho signals being given
during the operation. They Beem to
grow faster and faster every moment
and their surety In handling the ball
when going -their fastest is Just as
great aa when the pace is slower,
Tho Colorado game on Saturday will
be an oyo-opener to tho men from the
west. If they como down here ex
pecting to run up agairiat a game sim
ilar to tho one Nebraska played at
Denver, they will bo mightily mis
taken. Thoro Is almOBt no-comparlson
betweon tho playing of tho team now
and when they woro' at Dcnvorso
great Is tho Improvement.
Tho oxpression of the students Ib
still desired regarding tho Kansas ex
cursion as to which route would bo
Tho game after tho Colorado one
will be ono of tho best oil tho sched

game and will Hvo up to hor reputa
tion, this year.
IJtet year in the snow and mud she
hold Nebraska down to seven points,
and put up about tho prettiest game
seen on the homo grounds.
It Is hoped that at this game and
also tho Colorado ono tho attendance
will bo far ahead of that of any other
game this year. Make this a record
breaking season as to attendance and
glvo qur winning team all tho support
you possibly can, tho team deserves

up of tho team, which will depart
Friday at 3 p. m will be practically
tho same as last Friday's.
Clark, who formerly played fullback,
has left school and will return Bhortly
to his home in Kansas. Craig takes
his place at fullback. States will
probably play right end.
York High School has been trying
to schedulo a game, but aa yet it is
not knqwn whether at satisfactory
date ca"n be arranged Grand Islana
College has reorganized and is trying
to schedulo a game for the 14th. Thib
dato is unsatisfactory to the manage
ment of the scrubs. A number of the
econd team will probably take ad
vantage of the excursion ratcB to
Lawrence on that date, and do not
care to play.
Hockey Practiced Again.
Tho first hockey line-up was formed
Monday. But little more than at
tempting to learn the game has been
undertaken, owing to tne tact that it
Is entirely new to most of tho players.
Rapid progress is being made, now
ever, and yesterday'B game was played
with a great deal of spirit Tho
hockey Buits aro expected soon and
with cooler weather some fast playing
1b looked for. Ho far tho game haa
been limited to tlfteen minute halves,
but they will be extended and a whole
hour devoted to the game.

An Interesting experiment is being
tried In the Academy. Mr. Will Stein,
a graduate of tho University, brought,
during opening week, Mr. Kim Akagl,
a young Japanese. Mr. Akagl has been
a laborer in this country for seven
years and by his industry and keenness
of mind has risen to tho position of
foreman of a B. & M. section gang. It
Is affirmed by Mr. Stein that Akagl's
section and monthly reports aro tho
best on the road. Urged by his father
in Japan, and awaro of his needs in
English and mathematics, Mr. Akagl
registered for beginning algebra, Eng
lish and chemistry in tho Academy.
What his difficulties aro can hardly be
imagined. In algobra he does very
well, for the language of mathematics
is a universal ono, but In tho English
and chemistry classes tho problem is
a perplexing ono to Miss Dean and
MIbs Hdrtzell. Wero not Mr. Akagl's
patience, cheerfulness and ambition
contagious, theso teachers would de
spair. -Tho results so far however, are
encouraging and' tho principal Is con

Chancellor Andrews Says Soph
omores Should Desist.
Chancollbr Andrews has officially ex
pressed his disapproval of tho action
of tho Sophomores Monday In Intrud
ing upon tho Freshmen and attempt
ing to intorfero with their meeting.
While his views on ovontB of this na
ture aro gonerally known, ho haa made
no official Btatoment In regard to this
matter until yesterday, when ho said
In reply to a quory of .a Nobraskan
"I deprecate and abominate tho ac
tion of tho invaders, and I wish to say
right hero that thoy had better mind
their own business."
In referring to tho Sophomores as
tho Invaders It is plain to see tho light
In which tho chancollor regards them.
In their assault upon tho Freshmen
guards it Is evident that they acted
against his wishes, and their conduqt
was all tho moro displeasing on ac
count of the resistance offered to
Prominent members of tho Fresh
man class feel tho lack of organiza
tion and tho strenuous difficulties that
havo beset them in their attempts to
carry on tho business of tho class.
Twlco has tho class been called to
gether without any of tho permanent
officers being elected. Thoy feel that
if they had had some Unlvorslty of
ficial to preside over tholr first meet
ing and a number of responsible up
per classmen to assist them in keeping
out the invaders, that thoy could havo
accomplished much toward class or
ganization, instead of being at sea
with no signs of succor ahead until
tho present tlmo. Their chairman has
beon left to call a meeting and hero
ihe matter stands. For them tho fu
turo is uncertain, though not as dark
and forbldlng as It was a week ago.
It is tho desire of all to havo the mat
tor brought to a point Whether the
chancellor's condemnation of tho ac
tion of tho Sophomores will expedite
matters Is uncertain, though his opin
ion should bo respected and doubtless
will bo by tho greater part of tho class.
Some of the Sophomores still fond
ly cherish hopes of demoralizing tho
FreBhmon, although it is doubtful If
they will work on quite as large a
scale as before. Vague rumors aro fly
ing about as to kidnapping seances.
It is said that several of the Fresh
men are already marked out for at
tack and if it is impossiblo to get them
substitutes will bo taken. This Is get
ting back to the old' Btyle of class war
faro, and serves as a reminder of old
times. Wo have beon acquainted with
the names of several of the men
against whom designs aro said to be
aimed, but withhold theso from publi
cation, as we would not give undue
publicity to anyone unless wo were
sure of the facts of the case.
There will no doubt be trouble of
some kind when tho Freshmen meet
to elect again, but It will hardly be
of such a serious nature as that of
