BIG MASS MEETING
Strong Attempt to Be Made to
Arouse Interest in Game.
Another mass meeting will be held
in. chapel this morning for the purpose
of stirring up interest in the Knox
game Saturday. The energies of the
speakers will be concentrated in an
effort to bring out the true sentiment
of collego spirit in the student body,
instead of merely rousing them to a
passing interest The students have
not taken to heart the needs of the
football management and the great re
sponsibility resting upon It, and we
have got to a point where they must
como forth In a united body and sup
port Uic team in the two big games
of tho season. All should remember
that upon the showitg made at these
two games depends In a large degree
tho future of football In this Univer
sity, for if a reasonable amount of sup
port is not forthcoming Coach Booth
will not bo with us next year.
Chancellor Andrews, Prof. Caldwell,
Prof. Fogg, Manager Buckner and
Coach Booth will all speak and will
present tho exigencies of the situation
in tho strongest light possible. Each
will make a strong effort to persuade
each one present to give his apprecia
tive and undivided attention to the ap
peals made, and taking tho lesson to
heart do all In his power toward mak
ing tho Knox and Illinois games suc
cessful from a financial standpoint.
Tho band will be there, and will
strivo to do Its share In rousing en
thusiasm. But whatever influences are
brought to bear let the enthusiasm bo
genuine. Do not yell from a sense of
duty alone, but feel that It Is your
duty to express In enthusistlc demon
stration your Interest In tho team's
success. Act on the impulses stirred
up and bear away with you a deter
mination to do your part, and abide
by this determination until you have
accomplished results contributing to
tho accomplishment of tho desired, end.

well for them.
In speaking of the Iowa game did
any ono happen to see a notice of It In
tho Chicago Record-Herald? More
properly it was a notice of the opin
ion held by tho Iowa team, which
savors strongly oftan acute attack of
"soreness." Tho notice stated that the
Iowa fullback was out for practice
again, having recovered from tho in
juries received In tho Nebraska game,
which came aa a result of Nebraska's
rough play. .

Shakespeare, "Wouldn't that jar you!"

grounds In a good fair game and then
that whipped team sets up a howl It
ahowB the smallness, the lack of true
sportsmanship in that team.
Wo are very sorry it was necessary
to whip Iowa, but it had to be done.
Had our team known that they were
playing the pampered "Mamma's boy"
of the Big Nino, they would probably
hae dealth more tenderly with it, and
not dragged its nicely laundried white
shirt In the dust.
We arc sorry Iowa, very sorry that
you can not take a fair defeat like a
man. After you play us a few years
more, mayhap you'll learn.
Some very peculiar news comes from
Kansas. This team was beaten last
Saturday by the Washburn College
team by a score of 5 to 0. The score
came from a goal from the field.
Aside from the amusing news of the
defeat came another side issue which
adds a touch of "Tobasco." It is stated
that the Elks lodge in the city where
Washburn is located offered the team
$500 to beat Kansas, and when they
came back victorious the Kilts paid
them the money.
One who saw this game Bald that
there was a great deal of roughness
and rowdylBm on the Held on both
sides. This we are sorry to hear.
We earnestly trust that the Kansas
Nebraska game may be free from that
most unpleasant and unsavory feature
and we urge our own men to do all
In their power to check any such move
ment Next Saturday Knox Is here. Re
member the article which appeared In
The Nebraskan yesterday regarding
"It's up to you," good people, to
see that Coach Booth is retained, the
Athletic Board is depending on you.
Surely, surely, you will not disappoint
The second team has no, more games
scheduled at prent and whether or not
thoy will play any more, except against
the 'Varsity is a question.
Their record this year has been a
good ono and they have good cause
to be proud of It. We are not strain
ing a point when wo say that it Is tho
strongest second team that has been
produced in years.
Lecture By Prof. Barber.
The convocation period yesterday
was occupied by Professor Barber of
tho Latin department, In an illustrat
ed lecture upon ancient Rome. This
wa tho second of a series of Illus
trated, lectures which is being given
by different members of the faculty.
That they are popular is evinced by
the number in attendance yesterday
and the interest taken.
Professor Barber spent tho early
part of tho period ituehowing and ex
plaining tho different maps of ancient
Rome, pointing out the points of In
terest, the principal hills and buildings
of tho city, and.' thoir situation. Ho
then showed the positions of the dif
ferent walls which had been built by
successive rulers for their protection,
starting with tho first one, which is
supposed to havo been built by Ro
mulus, which Is only a few miles long
and ending with that of much later
date, over eleven miles long. He said
that this latter wall is still in a large
part intact. Ho showed photographs
of it and also of the earlier ones.
In speaking of the use of brick in tho
Roman masonry, he said that the Ro
man mason used them only for facing.
The Interior of the wall is made from
concrete, and then thisMs faced with
brick. No matter if the wall Is only
seven inches thick this planMs used
and a brick wall in those tlmesvwas
never solid. v
Several photographic views were
shown of the different walls. Some
were built of a kind of volcanic rock
which Is easily cut. This rock was cut
Into blocks two feet square and eight
feet long and laid In alternate layers,
one layer being lengthwise of the wall
and the next crosswise.
In the last wall a moat 30 feet deep
was excavated, at the Inner edge or
which a wall probably sixty foet high
was constructed and thdn the dirt
taken from tho moat was piled up be
hind the wall to reinforce It. A para
pet was erected upon the top of the
wall as a protection for Its defenders
against the fire of the Invaders.
The final view was a map of mod
ern Itonio, showing how the densely
populated portion has shifted. At pres
ent It is In the Campus Martlus
A SHEDD BENEFIT.
Movement Talked of in University
.Some agitation has been stirred re
cently over tho condition of Charles
Shedd, the former University football
player, who was so seriously Injured
as a result of a scrimmage In one of
the games last year. Although Shedd
has been under competent and care
ful treatment, ho will be a cripple for
life. From a strong and able-bodied
athlete ho has been reduced to a state
of helplessness. He Is unable to "work
and has not been sufficiently educated
along any line to enable him to gain
a livelihood, oven ir his physical con
dition warranted the effort.
At present ho Is dependent upon his
father for support. His father Is well
advanced In years and has no steady
source of income, and feels tho strain.
Tho University has helped In the past
to pay for tho cost of his treatment,
which was Indeed good- as far as It
went, and there is no reason why this
matter should be dropped now. Hence
a movement has been" started toward
arranging some enterprise that will
raise a sufficient amount to aid mate
rially in this unfortnuate young man's
education and support.
The means that Is considered tho
most feasible is the giving of an en
tertainment in the Lincoln Auditorium
some tlmo in tho near future, as soon
as sufficient interest is worketl up.
This entertainment, while a strictly
Univorslty affair, would undoubtedly
be supported liberally by tho business
men of Lincoln, many of whom have
displayed a lively Interest in Shedd's
Wo should not forget that Shedd
helped in achieving our memorable
victory over Minnesota and that ho
played a brilliant game while on tho
team, being, in fact, considered one of
tho best ends Nebraska has ever had.
Furthermore, wo should remember that
ho received his injury while battling
under our colors, and 1 soems that wo
might do something for him now that
his ncccssltv hcmi-panlnc if on nii..
Kainmont should be given for him in
theiaudltorlura, there is little doubt but
that a substantial sum would be net
tod, which would indeed prove useful
in bettering tho conditions of Nebras
ka's former star player.
PRICE 3 CENTS
IS INVITED AGAIN
Nebraska Asked to Join an Inter
collegiate Lecture Bureau.
Under tho chairmanship of Prof.
FrCd M. Raymond of Kansas Univer
sity, a committee at that Institution is
arranging for tho estaollshment of an
intolcolleglnte lecture bureau. Tho ob
ject of this movement Is to perfect an
organization of such a character as Xo
make It possible to secure tho leading
educators and public men In the coun
try to lecture at the various Institu
tions included In the bureau.
Our own Institution has been Invited
to participate in tho movement, but as
yet no definUe action has boon taken.
Wo have noNind set aside for this
purpose, and as et means are lack
ing. The Kansas commltteoNixpectn to co
operate! with similar cominlttecs at
this Institution and at Missouri in se
curing tho nest lecturers avallablenro
vlded, of course, this University flo-
cldes to tako up tho matter. Such a1
system would give the University pub
lico a splendid opportunity for hear
ing some noted speakers, but though
it Is Indeod a desirable thing. It is not
settled whether Nebraska will join or
not. We have a well systematized lec
ture bureau here and there is no reason
why we should not exchange from tlmo
to time for speakers from other insti
tutions. A number of our faculty have
prepared with tho greatest care lectures
on Important subjects In connection
with their work and are ready when
called upon, to go to any place ln tho
state. Whether this bureau could bo
merged Into the larger Bystom as It
now exists, Is something that has not
been seriously considered.
IN HONOR OF STOTSENBERG
Philippine Post Named After
Many University people will be in
terested to learn that ono of the new
posts recently established in the Phil
ippines by tho govornmont, has been
named In honor of Col. John M. StoU
senberg, formorly commandant at this
University. This post la situated at
Angeles on the Dagupan railroad, sixty
miles out of Manila, and Is ono of a
series that tho government is estab
lishing. In regard to this fact, Com
mandant Chase said yesterday:
"It is the Intention of the govern
ment to name these posts after offi
cers killed in battlo or afterwards de
ceased, who distinguished themselves
by their bravery. Hence it has fallon
as a fitting memorial to Col. Stotsen
berg to havo one' of these posts named
after him, in recognition of his effi
cient services. It is also tho cuBtom
of tho govortfraent to namo tho various -batteries
ajong tho Pacific and Atlan
tic coasts iftcr-d'eceased officers distin
guished for their gallantry. Ono of
those, at Fort Point, Cal., has been
named Battery Stotsenberg. And in
additjon a monument has been erected
to mark tho spot where he fell near
