Iowa Yields Back the Laurels
Wrested from Nebraska in '99.
All old scores were paid off with Iowa
last Saturday when the University of
Nebraska defeated the University of
Iowa by a score of 17 to C.
In '99 the Iowa team defeated the Ne
braska team1 by a score of 30 to 0', and
this defeat has over since rankled in
the breast of Nebraska, and it was
with a determination to wipe out this
hateful memory that the team Jour
neyed1 to Iowa last Thursday.
The day was a good one in Iowa. The
sun came' out Saturday morning and
partially dried up the muddy field,
which had become heavy from the rains
of the previous day.
The crowd was very disappointing.
Whether or not the students of Iowa
had no confidence In their team, or
simply that football enthusiasm was
lacking is an unanswerable question.
Whatever the reason, only about 1,500
persons came out.
The Iowa team was well supported
by her rooters, who were present, With
howls and college yells assisted by the
hnnH Hiifth a din was raised whenever
Nebraska had the ball that it was with
great difficulty that the players heard
Captain Bonder's signals.
Around the campus is heard frequent
ly a general grumbling that the team
was scored on.
Q, beautiful college spirit. Sweet,
charitable Consistency, we fear thy
name Is not Nebraska
Lo! Her team goes to a foreign land
to battle after winning many laurels
at home and making an enviable repu
tation for the University. On the day
of the departure the student body
turned out to cheer their team as it
pulled out of town and wish the mem
bers good luck? Did. they? No, they
didn't! There wore three Oh, Joy!
three students at tho station. The stu
dent body lot the team sneak out of
town like a whipped- dog not seeming
to care two straws whether they won
or lost. Then when they win a hard
fought game and through ill luck they
are scored against, there comes a wail
which would seem to indicate that the
students not the team had been In
Iowa put up a stiff game from start
to finish. The improvement which the
toam: made during tho time intervening
between the Minnesota and Nobraska
games was- remarkable.
Some now men wore Introduced and
rapidly whipped Into shape.
Tho defense and attack was strength
ened and the eam individually and col
lectively was almost a different one
than that which played1 Minnesota.
The Iowa coachi said that If Iowa had
played "against Minnesota tho game
which sho played agalnBt Nebraska
Minnesota's score would not have been
much larger than was Nebraska's.
Tho same man In speaking of Ben
der said that ho is one of the best If
not tho staf player on tho western
Iowa was heavier than Nebraslca and
'on a slippery field this counted for a
Tho one touchdown which Iowa got
" was due rather to hard luck on Ne
braska's part than good playing on
Iowa's. , 4
Iowa had the ball and was forced to
kick. Nebraska was downed on hor .5.
vii linn i a tHnlr nlnv was tried, but
fumbled, and Iowa got tho ball on Ne
braska's 5-yard, line.
Twice Nobraska tield, but was pen
' allzed, and with only a yard and a
half "to make Iowa, pushed the ball
At the end of the first half the score
stopd 6 to C.
Nebraska got busy In tho second
half. Bender made the Iowa team look
like a lot of tired school boys chasing
an automobile when he went bowling
down the field 85 yards for a touch
down. The whole team made Iowa feel as
if she was up against a sawmill. The
final score of the game came In the last
ten seconds of phix. The ball had been
bucked steadily down tho field and
was on Iowa' yard line with three sec
onds of time left. There was no time
left for signals. The toam lined up
"aomc thing as before," Bender called.
The whole Iowa team banked up to stay
that play they knew where It was go
ing. Graves, the fullback, who had re
placed G. Mason near the close of the
game, reoelved the muddy, trouble
making sphere and tucking It tenderly
under his arm proceeded to burrow a
hole under the mass of struggling play
ers, and crawl up on the other side of
Iowa's line and the game was over.
'It was a tough proposition," Cap
tain Bender said yesterday afternoon.
"Those fellows certainly played hard,
Bpeedy ball, and made a mighty big
improvement during the past three
weeks. If they had played against
Minnesota as they did against us Min
nesota wouldn't have piled up the score
"Fine game," Manager Buckner re
marked, "fine game. It would have done
your soul good to see It. I tell you our'
boys played ball from start to finish.
We have a team of which to be proud."
Coach Booth is silent. But that
smile It speaks volumes.
Tho game next Saturday Is against
Knox and deserves the patronage of
every student, none excepted, 'it Is one
of the biggest games of the year.

The second team went to Grand Is

It w'as a warm muddy affair from
start to finish, In which the University
proved herself the stronger of the two.
The Bcoro was 11 to 6.
A Sophomore Football Team.
The Sophomore class mot yesterday
In U. 10G and decided1 to organize a
football team. A captain and mana
ger will be appointed to look after
the organization of the team and will
be vested with full authority by tho
class to pick a team that will win the
lnter-class championship. When once
their team Is organized they do not In
tend to hesltato In throwing down the
gauntlet to tho.othcr class teams, be
ing .anxious to show tho public that
the Sophomores can shlno on the grid
iron Just as well as at the class meet
ings of their rivals.
Entertains at College Settlement
John B. Brady, a University student
furnished a fine measure of entertain
ment before the Literary and Social
club at the College Settlement last Sat
urday evening. He gave an Illustrated
lecture, displaying a large number of
views that ho took during his travels
in the Holy Land, Egypt and Greeco.
The house was packed "by an apprecia
tive audience and Mr. Brady s lecture Is
considered' tho best drawing card that
has yet apeared at tho Settlement this
year, and many fine comments are to
be heard on the high order of the en
tertainment he provided.
Senior Boys Disappointed.
The Senior boys met In U. 106 yes
terday at 10 a. m., but on account of tho
absence of Chairman Blckford of tho
hat and cane committee, hot,hlng was
done. A meeting will probably be called
later In the week.
The Engineering society has shown
Its loyulty to the University In a most
substantial manner by subscribing $100
to tho Tomple Fund. This Is an ex
ample that all other University organ
izations ' expecting to benefit by the
now building should follow, and tho
engineers have shown a commendable
spirit in Instituting such an important
movement. Their action was resolved
upon at their last meeting and their
generous contribution comes as a wel
come piece of news to those working
in the interests of tho fund.
If every fraternity, literary society,
and club In the University would do ,
all In their power to reach their old '
members, especially those not on tho
alumni list, much good would be dono
and the work of the committee In
chargo greatly expedited. There are
many who have been connected with
these organizations who can not be
reached by the committee, and as
many of these would doubtless be will
ing to help if once their attention
should be called to tho matter, the co
operation of their friends in the Uni
versity Is asked in locating them.
Each society or organization in tho
University should be able to raise $100
among its present and past members,
if it will take hold of the undertak
ing and push It to the limit. The pos
session of such a vastly useful build
ing as is almost within our grasp, Is a
matter that affects us all, and there
are none of us who are connected with
any Unlversllty organization, that will
not henoflt by it.
The active, energetic co-operation of
all tho students Is needed. For what
great enterprise demanding popular
support can succeed without a unan
imity of effort to bring it to success?
Students should awake to the fact
that a splendid new building is prom
ised, such a one as the stato could
hardly give us and yet one that will
fill a place In meeting our needs that
will be valuable In the extreme.
It will give Inspiration to the ac
tivities of our literary, Christian and
social bodies and to the development
of other organizations now hampered
by lack of suitable quarters. It will
furnish a meeting place for all the
students, and' will prove useful in a
thousand ways. The addition xI such
a building will give am Impetus to the
growth and expansion) of our Univer
sity that will affect all the depart
ments now hampered by cramped quar
ters, affording them Increased accom
modations and more spacer to display
Let us all follow the example of the
engineers. All clubs and societies will
benefit, and each should do its share
in the accomplishment of such a de
sirable result. A spirit of energy Is
necessary to promote tho progress of
any organization, and it certainly can
not be misdirected in striving to assist
in building up the Temple Fund. It Is
up to the students now to show their
attachment to tho University and tho
interest they have In its welfare. To
each student we say: "What will you
ELECT TWO OFFICERS.
Freshmen take Long Stride in
The Freshmen met In the chomlBtry
lecture room yesterday morning and
took another tremendous stride to
ward class organization. Considering
the fact that this Is tho fourth time
that tho class has met In the past
four weeks, tho degree of Interest dis
played was something unusual, as ovor
one hundred members woro present to
carry oiit tho election of ofllcors. How
ever, there was a lack of harmony In
dealing with some of the business up
before the class, but for all that, m-
sults were acorapllshed that put the
class nn n flrmpr frrMnr nml wilt n
.. u,wo miaui jllll uir
able them to work to a bettfei advan
tage In tho future.
Joseph Scott, the leading candidate
In tho meeting of tho week bofore was
elected president and Mr. Jones vice
president. The candidates for presi
dent were Messrs. Sunderlln, Scott,
Voorhees and Grlnnell. The result was
a landslide for Scott, who received seventy-four
votes. Of the others Voor
hees received sixteen, Sunderlln sixteen
and Grlnnell 1.
For vice president the candidates
were Jones, Davis, Do Young and Miss
MInnio Sweezy. All of them withdrew
excopt Mr. Jones, who was elected by
a rising vote.
A numtber of Important questions
wore brought up and discussed, opin
ions being expressed by many of the
class, which differed greatly on most
points and agreed In but few. Thero
was considerable parliamentary debate
on fraternity and non-fraternity can
didates, on decisions of the chairman,
upon remarks made and upon the bal
lots. At times the discussion waxed
fierce, but finally tho more Interested
participants were satisfied and the
main purpose of tho meeting accom
plished. Tho election of tho rest of the officers
has been postponed to tho next meet
ing. A quorum of one hundred was
necessary before yesterday's meeting
could be hold: and It is felTlhat tho
limit must bo considerably reduced
before anothe'r meeting can take place.

Ea1. at Don Cameron's Cafe,
Nothing causes each and every stu
dent to fefil so proud of his school, and
nothing tends to draw them so closely
together in one united body as a win
ning 'Varsity eleven.
If ono lends his. aid and enthusiasm
in attending each game and In root
ing loud and long, he feels that he has
a part of tho winning of it.
The atmospheric conditions being at
present decidedly adverse to the hold
ing of the Athletic Carnival, this Im
portant event must bo postponed until
a more favorable time. Although a
ureuu in mo arrangements has been
necessitated it is thought that tho
program can be held intact or u nnnr
