Nebraska and Kansas Reach
DuHng examination week the ques
tion with Kansas that has been hang
ing on for so lbng, was agreed upon
This result was reached only after a
great deal of correspondence to gel
Kansas to define the question so that
a tightly joined iEsue might be as
sured. Nebraska decided last Friday
to take the negative. This happens o
be the ide that Kansas has had for
the past two yeurs, although we hop
for better success than she achleed
Upon each of these occasions Kansas
had the popular side.
With the question arranged and
the side selected, the work of prepara
tion for the preliminary debate has
begun in earnest. The preliminary do
bate was arranged for Fobruarv 8th
but it was found necessay to postpone
It until after the middle of the month.
on account of the long drawn out con
troversy with Kansas, in one or two
stages of which It seemed likely that
tho two institutions would be unable
to agree on the question.
The faculty members of the debating
board as well as others in the Uniwi
sity who have interested themselves in
the selection of the question aie en

valuable information that caieful

NEW LITERARY CLUB.
Organization Formed by Bohem
ian Students of University.
Thcio has latelj bpen organized in
the Unlveisity a club which Is differ
ent from any that has ever been estab
lished hero A week ago a ciowd of
enthusiastic Bohemian students met
in University hall to discuss the advis
ability of uniting into some kind of a
society, with the tesult that In a few
hours the Comenius Literary dub was
organized, named after the gieat Bo
hemian, Comenius. The aim of the
members Is to advertise the University
among the BoheminnB of the state, and
to-study tho Bohemian language that
they may be better able to help their
people as they come in contact with
them. Besides, tho students believe
that along with their study of Greek.
Latin, German, English. French and
what not, they may well devote a few
houis now and then to their moth'-r
tongue. The Bohemian language can
hold its place by the side of many. It
is well developed, it is capable of con
veying the finest shades of meaning,
and at Its best it has a beauty and re
finement which deserv a lank among
the world's best.
As has been stated the purpose of
the club is to advertise the University
among ' the Bohemian people of th.1
state. The Bohemian is serious, pains
taking and can make a good student If
given the chance. Thegeneral iccord
of those who have taken advantage of
the opportunities affoided by tin Uni
versity has been excellent, and fully
appreciating what4he Unlversitv has
done for them, tho mem-bers will un
dertake to bring more of their paople
That their efforts will be rewarded is
beyond doubt for nothing can "touch
a Czech's heart more deeply than a
good example set by another Czech.
Dramatic Club Does Good Work
on Temple Fund.
The Dramatic club met In U. 107
yesterday morning and pledged $500
toward the Temple Fund. Individual
subset iptlons to the amount of $70
wore received, one of $50 "being given
by Mr. B. F. Myers, and the other of
$20 from Miss Howell. Further solic
iting -was' prevented by ho close of
tlu1 hour. Chancellor Andrews ad
dressed tho meeting, and much enthu
siasm was evidenced by those pres
ent. It is the intention or tho club
to raise tho pledge by individual sub
scriptions and by the, proceeds of vari
ous entertainments to be held In the
On Sale at the Treasurer's Office
neBr future. A small admission fee
will perhaps be charged for the plays
which the dub Iibb had in preparation
for some time, two of which wer go
thoioughly enjoyed by University peo
ple a week ago. Miss Howell will also
soon appoint a committee to arrange
other means for talslng the desired
First Drill of Semester.
The first drill of the semester was
held in the armory last evening. The
battalion plainly showed of the loas
of the third year men, but a number
of new recruits were added to Its
strength, which will probably make
up the deficit. Captain Chase instruct
ed the new men to procure unforfns
at once. He also announced that fur
ther communication with the authori
ties at St. Louis had made possible the
ai ranging of the proposed encamp
ment during the ten davs between June
(I and 1G. It is thought that the short
ening of the encampment will make It
possible for a much larger contlugont
to attend than would otherwise go
Coming Immediately at the close of
school, also, will add to the induce
ments of the proposition. Captain
Chase asked that the men who were
able to take advantage of the fair's
invitation let him know immediately,
In order that the matter may be defi
Girls Wont Play Minnesota.
The game between Nebraska and
Minnesota girls, prematurely' an
nounced, will probably not be played
after all. The Minnesota team wishes
very much to bring the Nebraska girls
to Minneapolis for a game, but prob
ably will be unable to do so this year.
The Stanlay Hall team at Minneapolis,
which Nebraska was to meet also, can
not undertake a match, and the Minne
sota management sends word that It
has not been able so far, to arrange
another contest. Unless the cost of
transportation can bo divided in this
way, the trip would bo too expensive.
The Minnesota girls were Invited to
rlay hero-last year, but did not nceepL.
It is hoped that a meeting may be ar
ranged for next year.
English Club Meeting.
The English club will hold its next
meeting Saturday evening, February G,
when it will bo entertained by MJas
Olivia Pound. As usual this year, sev
eral articles will be read, followed by
spirited criticism and discussion. Four
new members were recently elected to
fill the places made vacant by mem
bers who have left school. The newly
elected are Miss Louise Miller, Miss
Mabel Hopkins, Miss Grace Corder, and
Miss Leta Stetter.
The club is striving this year for
greater variety in its programs, which
usually have been limited for the most
part to the short story, and for more
discussion. Much interest Is being
At a recent meeting it was decided
to establish a small initiation fee, as
is customary with other honorary so
cictes of tho University.

TO PLAY GOPHERS
Game Finally Arranged. Nego
tiations With Iowa.
A game has boon scheduled witu
Minnesota nt Minneapolis for October
21). This Is the dnte Iowa wanted. Sin
wired that all her dates except the
20th were closed Although two or
three dates wciv practically agreed
upon with other colleges, Iowa wan
given the choice of any except October
29th and Thanksgiving I)uv. The Has
kell Indian game will probably be
played November 12 In Knnsns City.
As yet nothing definite has been
done as regards the baseball schedule
Replies have been received from Iowa,
Minnesota, Illinois, Wisconsin, Pur
due, Notre Dame and Northwestern to
the effect that they wWI bo glad to
meet Nebraska on tho baseball dia
mond, but Borne of them are planning
their trips about the time of ours,
while others can not say certainly Just
what dates Nebraska can have as yel.
The schedule will probably begin to
take on a definite shape by the end
of the week. Besides the northern trip
one to the south as far as St. Louis,
1b also contemplated.
The University team met the city Y.
M. C. A. In tho nimory last Friday and
won by the decisive score of 31 to 12.
A crowd of about 250 was present.
The result of the game waB some
what of a surprise to tho supporters
of tho team, since It was supposed that
tho Christians would put up a much
stlffer game than they did. Good team
work as well as Individual play on the
University's side, accounts for the lop
sldedness of the score. Hagensick was
the star of the evening, making n ma
jority of tho points for the University.
Between halves, and Just preceding
the big game, tho faculty demolished
the Business Men's team to the tune of
11 to 7. The result of this conflict was
never in doubt, as tho team-work of
the Business Men was weak, while the
faculty showed decided Improvement
over their former exhibitions.
The Freshmen team met and van
quished the second city Y. M. C. A.
team in the latter's gymnasium in an
exciting gnme last Saturday evening.
During the first half neither side could
score a point, but In the second half
tho FreBhmen swept their opponents
off their feet, scoring 20 pointB to
their G. Tho plnying of Miller and
Lott of tho Freshman team was espe
cially noticeable, as both of these men
played a brilliant and steady game.
The work of the team as a whole was
fast and clean and the Freshmen have "
a right to feel proud of their showing.
Dr. Coudra refereed the game.
