A TROPHY ROOM
Relics of Debating Victories Put
Up in Prof. Fogg's Room.
By virtue of a considerable number
of relies each a momento of a hard
fought campaign, In which excessive
displays of wit and Intellect were the
chief factors and by virtue of a few
simple formalities occurring last Sat
urday evening, Professor Fogg'B offlce
has been transformed Into a trophy
room. Displayed on the walls In neat
arrangement are photographs, charts
and posters, all commemorative of oc
casions upon which Nebraska came out
ahead In debate. All this display has
resulted from a desire to build up a
background in which the achievements
of past debates may figure and upon
which future debaters may look back
with Interest and by which they may
be Incited to effort, having In mind
the worthy traditions and past records
to guide them.
The photographs of the victories de
bating squads of 1902 and 1903 have
been gathered together and framed,
making neat pictures. In one frame
nro the nhotoEraohs of the three un-
- beaten teams of 1902, which are as fol
lows: Colorado College at Lincoln,
N. M. Cronln, '04; I. A. Kutcher, law
"03; F. A. Maxwell, '03, and J. F. Tobln,
03. Kansas at Lincoln; C. M. Bracelln.
'02; J. C. Doubt, '03; S-C. Hawthorne,
'02 and Fred M. Hunter, '05. Missou
ri at Columbia: C. P. Craft, '03; W. F.
Meier, '03; C. C. North. '02, and G. A.
In another frame are the photographs
of last year's squad, whose good record
is stUL fresh in our memories. This
squadmcludes the three following
teams: Kansas at Lawrence, E. R.
Buckner, '04; R. C. James, '03; Geo. A.
Lee, '03, and O. M. Peters, '03. Mis
souri at Lincoln, N. M. Cronln, '04;
Fred M. Hunter, '05; Ira Ryner, '04, and
J. C. McReynolds, law '04. Colorado
College (cancelled), J. C. Doubt, '03; B.
G. Lewis, '04; W F. Meier, '03; J N.
Norton, '03, and Ira Ryner, '03.
In' connection with these two pic
tures is the -photograph of the 1902
squad and Chancellor Andrews, taken
after "The Band Wagon Memorial Cel
ebration, May 10, 1902." when the third
victorious team came home from Mis
souri and Chancellor Andrews told the
student body to get a rope and pull the
team to the campus, and If necesary,
go to Omaha for the rope. It was per
haps the biggest reception given to
any home coming team up to that time.
There Is also a framed history of the
1902 and 1903 debates, compiled from
clippings 'from The Nebraskan and the
Stale Journal. .
There Is a -fresco over the doable
windows, consisting of-flve posters ad
vertising the five debates of '02 and '03,
numbered In order of the victories
gained. In a conspicuous placo hangs
an artistic and beautirully finished
drawing of the Missouri mule, which
was perpetrated by the 1902 team on its
way home from defeating our south
ern neighbors. So life-like does the
picture seem and in so pitiful a condi
tion the mule, that one Is almost given
to shed tears of sympathy involuntari
ly. Underneath the suffering beast Is
the inscription: "The Missouri Mule
after the 1902 Debate."
A couple of charts left by the ene
my serve as grim reminders of blasted
hopes and defeated ambitions. Both
of the charts contains the names of
of the charts contain the names of
the man instrumental In bringing to
grief the belabored efforts of his logi
cal opponents. One of these is the
"Street Railway Chart," left by Colo
rado in 1903. The other Is the "Rlce-Mllk-and-Eggs
Chart" lejt by Missou
ri, which the wtfole'team spotted, jit the
first of the debates, but the complete
smashing was left to the final refuta
tion. A number of charts used by Nebras
ka are also displayed. One of these is
one used in connection with the Reci
procity debate with Kansas "in 1902,
introduced by C. M. Bracelln. Anoth
er Is one used against Missouri in 1902
in the Street Railways debate, illus
trating the argument of W. F. Meier.
One of the most notable of these charts
is 15 feet in width and was used by O.
A. Lee in 1903 against Kansas on tho
Compulsory Arbitration question. It
was complied by the debating squad
from Carroll D. Wright's reports on
"Strikes and Lockouts for Twenty
Years." There are two other charts also
which were Introduced by E. R. Buck
ner in the aforementioned debate with
Ira Ryner's "Whisky" chart graces
the wall with its imposing array of
figures. It is one of a series of five,
one or two of which will be mounted In
Dr. Ross' office.
It Is Intended to add to the collection
year after year. The department ex
pects space in the new Temple building
and there will bo a permanent home
for the Debating association. This
will allow an expansion in the work,
and it is expected that In years to
come a really valuable collection will
Athletes Will Strive for Honors
Armory This Evening.
The first gymnatstlc contest will bo
held In the armory this evening. This
event has involved a large amount of
careful preparation and will no doubt
be full of exciting interest. The men
who will take part have been training
hard for several months past, and all
should come out and see them work.
The following Is the program:
1 . Horizontal bar contest.
2. Exhibition of long horse work by
3. Contest on parallel bars.
4. Contest in high diving and runty
spring board work.
5. Tumbling contest.
G. Exhibition 6f fancy torch swing
ing by Dr. Clapp.
This contest will start promptly at
8 o'clock and will be through In time
to permit all so desiring to attend the
Cornhusker Informal. This Is one of
the two contests that will be held this
year. The other will be held In March.
The Idea of charging no admission to
get people out and to interest them In
athletics by letting them know what
Is being done and the possibilities of
results that can be achieve Is a good
It is Intended to develop a team In
oruer that at future times we can take
part In the Western Inter-CoHeglato
contest, held annually. By training
tho -men in "the events that have beeir
nssigned, they can be developed suffi
ciently to enable a- team being formed
here in gymnastic- work that could
make a creditable Bhowing at the larg
er contest. The last contest was held
at Wisconsin last year. Minnesota
wan after some exciting Bcenes.
Gymnastic contests are becoming
very popular in the east. In some
schools teams of high efficiency have
been dovelopeod. They have in many
places displaced basket ball, making it
of secondary importance.
Hence it Is essential that all possible
encouragement should be given to tho
work here. At the contest this evening
all University people can help along
a proper and desirable movement by
attending and1 cheering the athletes In
.their efforts to excel. Among those
who wll take part are Mllek, Baker,
Reed, Bender, Brick, Pipal and Car
penter. All of these men have been
working hard for the past three or
four months. Let all come out and
see inaugurated a new feature in ath
letics at thlB institution.
