feat before the mighty attack of the
whirl-wind team of Nebraska.
When- the final day of reckoning came
Colorado faced a blank and Nebraska
had 31 points ore her slate, Colorado
Was simply out-played and outclassed
at every point of tho game. Only once
did they make any showing when In

along towards the close of tho first
half when she managed to makeher dis
tance for several downs. This rally
was short lived and was not repeated
during the remainder of the game.
Never at -any time during the gamo
was Nebraska's goal Ira danger. During
tho first ton minutes of play punts
were freely exchanged, neither side
having much tho advantage, although
Colorado was kicking with the wind.
Tho Nebraska team came on tho field
at 2:58 and took a short Bignal prac

a few exceptions every time Colorado

University Song Prizes.
I-ast year a prize of $100 was offered
for a high type of University Bong.
But in tho judgment of the committee
of award no song of efficient merit to
gain tho prize was submitted. Condi
tions seem favorable Just now to bring
out the genius which without doubt
oxists in our midst if the demand Is
great enough to call It forth. The Ath
letic Carnival, given by tho faculty,
next Saturday, seems to be the auspi
cious date and event. Again prizes are
offered and If the amount is not equal
to the sum offered last year, it Is felt
that the occasion will moro than com
pensate. To the two persons who pre
sent tho most original, unique and fit
ting poems or songs, rewards- will bo
given. The only conditions attached
are that the poems or songs must ap
pear In Tho Nebraskan by Saturday
and must bo hold adequate by tho
former committee, If It can be pre
vailed upon to act. Professors Sher
man and Fossler, It Is hoped, will sot
up all Friday night to glvo a decision
that may bo adequate to the tlmo and
circumstances. Mr. Blxby can have
only one stunt, but all other compet
itors can have as many "goes" as
they desire. Prizes named later.

Tho Freshman class meeting passed
off yesterday without a murmur of dis
cord from elements raging without to
disturb the serenity that prevailed. As
sistant Superintendent Fee, together
with a body of loyal Freshmen stood
guard before the door, and by their
threatening aspect precluded tho desires
of ambitions Sophs to enter the meet
ing and make themselves conspicuous.
They succeeded quite easily In convinc
ing those Ineligible ones who may have
had a desire to enter that the task
would be a difficult one to accomplish.
Tho class assembled In U. 107, at the
call of Chairman Scott. The reading
of the minutes of tho last meeting was
dispensed with, and Chairman De
Young of tho constitution committee,
was given a chance to place beforo
the class tho document that was to
guide them in their future course. Ho
supplemented the reading of tho con
stitution with an address, of a forcible
and impressive character. He assured
the class that the constitution was as
far from tho hands of tho Sophs as the
orb of Jupiter Is from the earth which
Is quite a long distance.
The constitution and by-laws were
read amid desultory and enlphatlc ap
plause, as tho Freshmen heard with
awo and respectful attention tjie outlin
ing of the rules and regulations that
were to govern their body, tho names
of the ofilcers and the details of their
various duties and many other import
ant things that were incorporated into
the substance of the revered and im
portant document. After a few minor
changes had been made it was moved
and seconded that tho constitution be
adopted as drafted, and tho class pro
ceeded to tho election of permanent
First an Informal ballot was taken.
The names of the following candidates
were presented before the meeting:

ment accorded them, and the only ob

For somo tlmo there has been a gon
eral sentiment among the memborB of
tho Senior law class In favor of express
ing to Hon. M. B. Reeso tho regard
In which ho is held by them. This
culminated In a smoker given in hiu
honor last Friday evening at tho chap
tor house of tho Phi Kappa Psl frater
nity, at which he was presented with a
gold headed cane. Tho cane bore tho
inscription, "Presented to Hop. M. B.
Reese by tho Senior law class of 1904,
U. of N."
A largo part of the class was pres
ent and everybody enjoyed the oven
lng. At an appointed time Mr. E. F.
Suavely, president of tho cIosb--called
tho meeting to order and Btated that
they had assembled for the purpose of
moetlng Judgo Reeso and recalling
tholr associations with him as dean
and Instructor. That this had been
considored a fitting occasion to present
to him some token of the esteem In
which he Is held by tho clflsB. Ho In
troduced Mr. A. Z. P.rescott, who pre
sented the cane with a neat and pointed
Mr. Prescott spoke of tho Impossi
bility of fully expressing on this occa
sion the depth of love and esteem en
tertained for Judge Reese by the mem
bers of tho Senior law class. He-said
that Judgo Reese In his career as an
Instructor in the law school had shown
tho Instinct of the true teacher In
bringing out tho individuality of tho
student, and at tho same tlmo gavo duo
wolght and attention to scholarly at
tainments. As dean he had given tho
fullest care to tho work of building up
a progressive law school. That his
example had been of Immense influence
in shaping that upright character so
necessary to tho truly successful law
yor. He concluded by saying that it
was imposlble for him to fitly express
tho esteem of tho clasB, but- that each,
member would do so on this occasion
In his own way.
Then Judge Reeso responded by
saying that ho could not begin to ex
press tho gratitude and appreciation
he felt. Though a valuable cane ho
did not esteem the cane for its valuo
as a staff upon which to lean, but be
cause" he Could lean upon It -with, the
recollection of those who had present
it. That -lie could esteem it oa a tie,
a bond of friendship that should, bind
blm to tho class. He declared-that '
tho ten years of his association with
tho law school had been the happiest
period of his life and spoke feelingly
of his relations to tho class of 1904,
loading up to tho present occasion.
Ho assured them that this cane should
be his constant companion and that
It should he n constant memento of thp
friendship of tho donors'.
A round of applause .followed his
speech and ho then Held an informal
reception for tho boys, as ho called
them, they crowding around and shak
ing his hand. About 10 o'clock the
company dispersed and each one carried
home with' him inspiring memories.
