Nebraska Snowed Under by
SiouxCity Y. M. C. A.
Athletic Nebraska Is still rubbing
its eyes and trying to And out what
really happened Tuesday ntght at 8ioux
City. From the meager account re
ceived in Lincoln it would appear that
our boys wore figure headsin the game
and that the only way In which they
shono was in making fouls fifteen
goals thrown from the foul line being
counted against them. In one half the
only goals thrown by Nebraska were
mado by the guards. Sioux City ex
celled In every department of the game.
Hoar and Benedict allowed their men
to make six goals apiece, while Elliot
an Hagensick could not hit the elusive
basket at all, at all. The final
score was 49 to 14, and oven Minnesota
couldn't do us up worso than that. We
hope the boys will ginger up for the
other three games.

Session Addressed by Inspector
Crabtree and Dr. Luckey.
The Pedagogical club met at 7:30 last
evening after a social season. Profes
sor Luckey began tho special program
of the eenlng with some brief but in
teresting remarks as to the Importance
of the University teacher' certificate,
its standard and its relation to state re
quirements elsewhore. Ho emphasized
the personality of the teacher and gavo
suggestions as to the teacher's social
relations illustrating the latter by some
recent incidents which have como to his
notice. He then introduced Mrs. Clark,
secretary of the University appoint
ment bureau, who explained some de
tails concerning the bureau's work and
tho course of procedure for students
who use the bureau. She announced
that she would have an offico hour in
the dean's room for convenience in con
sulting with prospective teachers.
Mr. Crabtree. University high school
Inspector, gave some practical advice In
making plans for securing positions
and spoke encouragingly for those
whose positions waited till late in the
season. He then read a paper entitled
"My First School." giving some ac
counts of his evolution as teacher from
tho period of air castles to his estab
lishment as a full-fledged teacher. His
reminiscences ofhls preparation and
his school experiences made his discus
sion concrete and. practical and added
humor and interest to his descriptions.
At the conclusion of the paper Prof.
Luckey read a letter from a teacher
who has recently gone out from the
University, bearing upon tho matter
of corporal punishment In a way which
conflicts with modern pedagogical Ideas
on the subject and Is hardly In accord
with the traditions of the department
of education. It is very Interesting to
see how teachers are meeting school
problems. It is, however, possible to
apply and modify theory without re
nouncing it altogether.
The meeting was a success and all
must have felt repaid for the time
Delta Gamma Party.
Delta Gamma entertained Wednesday
at a very delightful dancing party at
Walsh hall, Tho decorative scheme,
a huge umbrella of Delta Gamma colors
suspended from the corners of tho hall
by streamers of the same colors, was
prettily carried out. Walt's orchestra
furnished the music for dancing. Dainty
refreshments were served during tho
The out-of-town Delta Gammas who
came on for the party were Misses
Ethel Tukey, Loralno Comstock. Hor
tense Clark and Edith Dumont, of Oma-'
ha, and Miss Hallle WilEon, oL Ash
laud. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Woods, Mr. and
Mrs. John S. -Reed, and Mr. and Mrs.
A. L. Haeoker chaperoned tha party.
Professor Barbour has been overrun
with applications for positions under
the Nebraska commission at the
world's -fair. Fifty or sixty applica
tions have been received, for whom no
places are available. Tho prospect for
University students in getting such
places is therefore very unpromising. In
fact the number of places Is quite limited.
On Thursday afternoon, at. 5 o'clock,
the Botanical Seminar will 'hold an
open meeting in room 102, of Nebraska
hall, fqr the purpose of listening; to a
paper l?y Dr. Clpments on '"The Pro
nunciation of Botanical Names." As
this meeting is open to 'the public a
general invitation is extended to all
who wo interested in this subject. . -

Athletics to Suffer From Ruling
Concerning Drill.
In conformity with tho military pro
ision passed by tho Board of Regents
Monday, the following general orders
were read last evening at drill:
General Orders No. 5.
Tho Board of Regents having ap
proed tho following regulations affect
ing the military department, thoy are
hereby published for the Information
of all concerned:
Thirty cadets will bo oxcused at the
beginning of the first semester to par
ticipate in football athletics. The men
so excused will bo required to take mil
itary work tho second Bemester of each
year until their military requirements
are completed.
No student will bo oxcused from mil
itary work the second semester on ac
count of athletics.
By Order of
The purpose as well as the probable
result of tho above order Is apparent.
It simply means that our track team
and baseball nine aro to be greatly
hampered In their work, perhaps, even
to the extent of being made impractica
ble. Dr. Clapp In reply to the Inquiry
of a Nebraskan reporter yesterday said:
"The ruling will undoubtedly work
great Injury to our track and baseball
work. It is an undisputed fact that a
runner can not do good work if forced
to take military drill, and I am sur
prised that so stringent a provision
should have been made. Tho military
requirements hero are already, so far
as I can discover, stricter than in any
like Institution In the country.
"In roBpect to tho provision excus
ing football men yet making it obliga
tory for track and baseball men to drill
I can only say that to mo It seems un
fair." A prominent member of tho battalion
who is also interested In athletics stig
matized tho action of the Regents in
very unstinted terms. "Tho regulation
Is unfair in the extrome;' he said.' "The
Board can not have fully understood
tho situation and the effect the order
will have when It passed It. It may
mean the ultimato disbanding of our
ball J.eam, and, In any event, can not
fall but seriously effect the success of
spring athletics in the University. A
majority of our athletes would have tp
drill under tho proposition, and I for
one, can not Bee how our spring ath
letics are to be successful If the order
is enforced. It Is a cinch that a.succe.Bs

Another prominent cadet officer tqok
much the some view'of the situation,
and gave it as his opinion that the
athletic men could evade tho order if
necessary by falling back on the statute
which makes provision for tho mili
tary departments of such institutions
as the University. He stated that this
requires drill of Industrial students
only, and declared that men of other
colleges could not bo forced to drill,
Leaving this phase of the- matter out
of consideration, however, the order
loaves the baseball apd track team sit
uation In a very discouraging condition.
It Is probable that majority of the can
didates for the baseball team have not
completed tho drill that is now required
and If they are forced to drill thjs,. se
mester the outlook for the baseball sea
son is Indeed, gloomy. It was oven
stated to us on excellent authority, that
Captain Townsend himself would . be
forced to drill under this oider.
Here Is tho regulation is passed by
the Board of Regents. The remainder
of the', minutes, of the meeting will be
found on another page of The tfe-braskttn:
I- "In the mattor of athletics and mili
tary requirements, It was ordered:
"1. To allow thirty cadets to bo ex
cused at tho beginning of tho first se
moster to participate In football ath
letics. Thoso men to bo required to
tako military work the second semes
ter of each yoar until tholr military
requirements aro completed.-
"2. No substitution of courses per
mitted. "3. No bttident to be excused from
military work tho second term on ac
count of athletics.
"4. After registration, tho registrar
to check off the male students regis
tered to ascertain if students who aro
required to take military drill havo
reglstored for the same and to require
tho attendance of those not registered
when it is their duty to do so.
