Speaking of this gymnastic contest
which is to be held Wednesday even
ing, we wIbIi to say that It is to be
something novel In the way of gym
nasts for this University. The flg
ures'and exercises throughout will be
new and interesting. Tho swinging
of torches by Dr. Clapp Bhould alone
attract a crowd. The high diving and
spring board work will bo something
spectacular. Dr. Clapp and the men
have worked hard for this event and
it is hoped that the students will show
their appreciation of their efforts by
coming out to tho contest. It will be
over in plenty of timo for all those
wishing to go to the Cornhuskers' In

both the games is 25 cents.
The Wesleyan people are going to
turn out in full force to support their
team. Let Nebraska do the same, and
eend the season off with a good rous-
The Wesleyan team is a strong one,
and has had a much longer timo to
practice than ours-and will give our
team all they want. The playing
against tho Law students of this team
was not a fair example of their work.
Our team is in good shape and ready
"to open their work. They will line
up at tho beginning as follows:
Elliott, captain, HagenBick forwards.
Hoar and Beers, guilds
During the game these different men

they will be both of the A-No.-l order.
