vi-F Flag Is at Half Mast, There
Will Be No Carnival Today,
If tho flag hangs at half-mast this
morning there wili Indeed be cause for
grief. Nowb, sad and melancholy,
would be heralded abroad, to sadden
tho hearts of the faithful and bring
unspeakable sorrow to disappointed
members of tuo faculty.
If the flag is at half-mast at nine
o'clock and after this morning, the
Athletic Carnival will bo postponed
until next Tuesday morning, when it
is hoped the rain god will be more pro
pitious. This is tho means decided
"upon of acquainting the students of tho
lamentable fact, if it is necessary to
postpone the Carnival, which will like
ly bo the case. Indeed the occasion
would be a sad one and' tho students
would havo as muoh cause to grlevo
as If ono of their beloved frlondB or ln-
atructors had passed away, or if Tho
Nebraskan was suspended.
The mere fact of the Carnival being
po&tponed is tho only cause for regret.
If it wore postponed Indefinitely then
the blow to us all would be hard to
bear, but there Is a comforting and as
suring hope hold out. If it can't be
held today It will bo hold Tuesday, so
that after all none of us will be de
prived of a privilege which 1b both an
Honor and a blessing to possess and
a priceless treasure into tho bargain.
We may oven look for a better class
of entertainment. The professors will
have all day Sunday to practice, being
unhampered by work or detracting con
siderations. Improvement acquired at
thoir stage in tho course of training Is
noticeable indeed, and the delay will
bo for tho good of the game. . Nothing
will bo omitted from tho program and
wo will get a half-holiday into the
bargain; for who'll be there to teach
us? Tho faculty won't for they will
all bo at tho moot. Those who do not
take part will arrange themselves along
tho wire fenco-in order of height, and
boxes to stand on will bo provided f6r
those needing them.
Whatever happens, don't feol dis
couraged. If tho rain does spoil our
pleasure today, it will help tho crops.
What's our loss Is someone else's gain.
And our loss of today will bo our gain
Tuesday. Let us at least bo philosoph
ical and bear our disappointment in
good part, -keeping in mind the fact
that the meeting will bo held In spite
of present discouragement.

Found their birth within thy walls;
Wo have-breathed tho air of Freedom
In thy class roomB and thy halls.
When tho daylight yields to twilight,
And tho sun sinks to his rest;
Over all tho world reflected

Olor tho fields and o'er the valley
Streams the Scarlet and the Cream.
Ah, wo love Thee, Dear Old Unl!
With a lovo that will endure.
Time can only mould thy memory
Into purpose high and pure.

So 'twil make us better men.
Our respect, our love, our friendship,
Will continue to the end.

ALMA MATER NEBRASKA.
On the bosom' of tho pralrlo,
Far out In tho west,
There aro dear old college buildings,
All In glory dressed.
Hall, Nebraska, hail! Hail to thee and
hall to tho Scarlet and Cream.
Fairest of all tho colors the Scarlet
and the Cream.
When tho wanderer disheartened,
Woos swoet memory;
From tho shelf ho takes a volumo,
Ono that speaks of thee.
Standing by our Alma Mater
Till tho day wo die;
Ever will wo fondly greet her,
Shouting to tho sky:
Let us shoutr-for old Nebraska,
Let tho trumpets loudly blow;
For the glory of tho Unl.
That has conquered every foe.
Oh, the Unl. is a winner,
And she does It up bo fine,
That tho teams who dare confront her
Can not phazo her sturdy line.
Thus, t football Is in season
She Is ever at tho front,
With a Bonder for a long run
Or a Benedict to punt.
Or, porchance, 'tis on the roBtrum,
Then again she towers high;
She can triumph o'er this section
Though she needn't half but try.
Let us cheer for old Nebraska,
Lot the hills and vales resound;
Causing, terror to the Unl's
For a thousand miles around.
