COME OUT TONIGHT
TO SETTLE IT UP
A B remendou8 o W Be
Made to Down the Badgers.
Everything is ready for the hig game
tonight, and unless something unfor
Been occurs, the biggest crowd that
evor attended a basket-ball game at
.Nebraska will turn out this evening.
The two teams are trained right up
to the minute for this game alone, and
wo can look forward to the fastest,
cleanest and closest game ever played
on our floor. Wisconsin boldly an
n nces that it is coming for blood,
and only an enthusiastic body of root
ers can win victory tonight for the
scarlet and cream. Dr. Clapp attrib
utes our defeat at Mninesota, when
wo seemed to have the Gophers "go
ing" at the end of the first half, to
tho fact that the home team had sup
porters to cheer for them between
halves and encourage them to greater
efforts in tho second, and not because
our boys fell down or because the
other team did not play the best ball
that was In them every minute of tin
first half. If Nebraska loses this big
homo game of the season, It will be
the fault, not of tho team, for thej
have done and will do everything that
is in the'm, but of those Universltj
students who do not have enough col
lege spirit to add their -roicc to "the
old Uni yell that will ring out in the
armory tonight when tho team trott
out onto the iloor.
The Badger team arrived in tho city
yesterday morning after encountering
tho same fato at tho hands of the
Sioux City Christians that was handed
out to our team a couple of weeks
ago by tho same team. The scores
were almost the Bame 49 to 14 against
Nebraska and 4G to 14 against Wlscon-
" sin. To Judge from this game, tho two
teams are of about tho same ability,
tho Cornhuskors having an advantage
in the fact that thoy are playing on
the home floor, while the Badger team
is far from home and friends.
Last night tho Wisconsin boys
played Wesleyan at University Place.
As tho paper Is going to press the
scoro-is unobtainable, but it is quite
certain that the northerners ran away
with tho local team. Tho gamo to
night will begin promptly at eight,
and the halves will be twenty minutes
long. Between halves there will be
a three-round sparring contest be
tween a couple of city Y. M". C. A.
members, with Professor Caldwell as
roforee. Dancing will begin very
Shortly after nine o'clock, so that the
program will bo of tho usual length.
Owing to the illness of Mr, Lane,
tho gymnasium director, tho three
classes in physical education 14 did
not have any floor-work yesterday,
but wont out on a long distanco run
instead. The cold wind disturbed the
men at first, but the stiff pace soon
warmed them up, and no serious re
sults occurred. The students were
quite unprepared for long dlatance
running, and after a couple of miles
tho laggards began to drop out, until
only about half wore left to complete
the full circuit of about four or five
Last Friday the different divisions
had a contest in order to divide each
section up into four equads. This ie
necessitated by tho fact that the
classes are too largo to be handled as
a whole, and is also advantageoup to
those men who would be held back by
the poorer gymnasts If they all did the
same work. Another innovation is the
assigning of numbers to tho men, so
that instead of calling tho roll, each
man hands his number to tho man
In charge, thus saving considerable
tlmo each hour.

MASS MEETING CUT SHORT
Addresses Made to Arouse Enthu
siasm. Recital by Miss Dales.
Owing to MIbs Silence Dales' ap
pearance at convocation this morning
only a very short time was devoted to
tho arousing of basket-ball interest.
Miss Dales rendered four numbers
in her inimitably charming manner,
which makes her dearer to tho Uni
versity people each time she plays.
Miss Ethel Syford accompanied her
on tho piano.
After the music ProfesRor Candy
urged a larger attendance at convoca
tion and announced the program for
next week as follows: Tuesday, Dr
Ross, "The Open and Closed Shop;"
Wednesday, Professor Barber, "An
cipnt Rome." Thursday, Dr. Tuttlo,
In a few very brief remarks Dr.
Condra then spoke of tho real purpose
of tho meeting, to tho effect that a
crowd must bo ori Irand' tonight to
cheer Nebraska to victory over Wis
consin. Dr. Clapp showed the necessity of a
fargo attendance by Bpeaklng of the
present deficit staring tho athletic
board in tho face and brought home
tho fact that it is up to us as a stu
dent body to como out tonight.
Chances for a victory, Dr. Clapp
thought, were very favorable.
"Red" Hewitt, basket-ball manager,
seconded all Dr. Clapp had said and
pounded our duty at us by a few apt
Our showing against Minnesota,
against tho team which eastern critics
say could defeat anything in the east,
proves that Nebraska's basket-ball
team merits every bit of the heartiest
kind of support wo can give it, and
in the words of Dr. Clapp, It is cer
tainly "up to us as a student body to
turn out tonight and make tho victory
over Wisconsin one of the students,
as well as of the team."
these meetings will bo the subject for
discussion Sunday afternoon. Five lo
cal association men will lead tho dis
cussion. A good whole-souled Bong service
will be participated in by thoso who
attend. University men are invited to
bo present and take part In this por
tion of tho service. Tho meeting will
last one hour.
The membership of the Uni Y. M.
C. A. has shown a substantial Increase
during the past two months. College
men who are not assisting in the work
of tho association, to tho extent of
membership at least, ought to con
sider the opportunity of aiding a good
work, and hand in their names to the
membership committee without wait
ing for a personal visit.
Tho new students commltteo has
made 2G4 calls on students in their
The employment work has now
reached ?5,726, which it has aided our
students in securing. Those needing
help should make their needs known
to those in charge. Those knowing of
any place whore a student may find
employment would do well to report
th esame to the association.
Tho financial outlook of the associa
tion is very encouraging. If those who
owe membership fee or for subscrip
tion mado will visit tho treasurer or
general secretary, they will bo most
kindly received. The final outcome
depends almost wholly on tho proper
completion of this feature.

Y. M. C. A. TVlass Meeting To

Tomorrow afternoon at 3 o'clock, in
Palladian hall, the Uni Y. M. C. A.,

The sophomores will meet Monday
with an evident purpose of finishing
up the business relative to tho Junior
class book for next year. According to
general Impressions that are current,
it is qulto likely that tho class will
at least succeed in disposing of this
troublesome affair that has been hang
ing on so long. It has, in fact, been a
long tlmo since business of such im
portance has been brought before any
class In this University for settle
ment. The whole affair has been qulto
complicated, and two stormy meetings
have been held to Btraighten out mat
tors without result. But at the moot
ing Monday It is folt that It will be
for the beBt interests of all concerned
If the class proceeds in tho stops it
has taken toward electing the editors
of the Sombrero.
The production of the class consti
tution was tho surprise of tho last
meeting, aB speculation was already
rife as to the abiding place of this
potent document. It is quite likely
that tho constitution will be set aside
aB the weal of the class is said to de
mand it in tho present instance. This
would romovo tho only obstruction to
tho election of officers, and tho class
hffvlng proceeded as far as It has, will
finish the work, if its wishes are not
again thwarted. The past two meet
ings have been interesting and some
thing has been accomplished at oach
of them and it Is to bo hoped that on
Monday tho question will bo definitely
. It is necessary to establish once for
all a precedent for olocting at leaat
thoso occupying tho chief places on
the board. Tho Sophomores this year
may have to make tho fight necessary
for effecting this purpose, but if tho
precedent is onco established, then
tho way will bo clear for classes In
the future. There will be certainly
fewer chances for graft by making
these places elective, as such Is likely
tho case when Individuals have chargo
of the book without any restraint to
It is quite likely that the last chap
ter of this memorable contest will bo
written next Monday. As a rule, tho
Sophomores seem to be getting ready
for another big turn-out, as the ex
citement will at least bo worth the
trouble. There wjll bo no danger at
all o there not being a quorum, and
while some vigorous action Is expect
ed, It 1b quite probable that tho class
will complete Its work.
