Nebraska Wins in a Rough and
Hard Fought Contest.
Nebraska rooters received a practical
demonstration of the- value of a little
cheorlng on a team when the Corn
husker Ave braced up In the second half
of the game with Wisconsin Saturday,
and played the Badger team off their
feet in the first fifteen minutes, finish
ing the game victors by the score of 25
to 22.
A crowd of about 300 witnessed th;
game, and resisted the utmost efforts
of the leaders to start a little room
ing until the second half. Tho floor
had been waxed for dancing, which
perhaps accounted for the miserable
fumbling during the entire first half.
The goal practice of the last two weeks
did not have much effect upon the
team, and tho percentage of goals
thrown out of the total number at
tempted was extremely low. Even
Hagenslck, who has always thrown at
least half his -baskets heretofore,
seemed to bo off color, and could not
find the right place until the Becond
half, due in a great degree to the ex
cellent guarding of McLees, who played
an excellent game, although he was a
little too fond of football tactics,. Both
nagensick and Stelnmetz did fine work
at throwing fouls, getting nine and
eight respectively. For Nebraska the
guards, Benedict and Hoar, did the best
work, tho latter preventing Steinmet.
from throwing a goal until tho last
five minutes. Stelnmetz and Schofield
were the stars on tho Wisconsin s,la.
the latter deserving especial credit tor
nis game because ho was half sick and
had been unable to play against Wee
loyan. tho night before. Nebraska ex
celled in team work, as they have 1a
all their games this season, and during
the greater part of the game the ball
was In our hands, the forwards and
center -often taking three shots at the
elusive basket before tho Wisconsin
guards could got the ball. The game
was very fast, and also unnecessarily
Tho game opened with a good deal
of loose playing on both sides, and not

doing the stunt for Nebraska. Steln

and McConochie followed with one

performance a moment later. Hagen

Between halves Mr. Gebhardt of the
Lincoln T. M. C. A., and three of his
pupils gave a very good exhibition of
boxing. In announcing the event Dr.
Clapp justified himself in presenting
such an exhibition on the groundB that
boxing had many good points and so
few poor ones that it would be a very
aesirame auumuu w mu umivtiv. in
struction of tho University. This
evoked a round of applause.
The Cornhuskers seemed to have
been infused with quite a little ginger
between halves, and "Hagy" had gotten
' his nerve, for from the first whlstlo
they rushed things, and soon had a
very substantial lead, The only chance
Wisconsin had to score was on fouls,
and they toolt full advantage of thU.
With five minutes left to play Steln
metz wrenched his foot and had to
take time out. ThlB rest seemed to
have put the same spirit into the Bad
gers that Nebraska had shown, and
Stelnmetz got three goals, off Hoar.
Schofield also got one. Their brace
came too late, however, and when the
whistle blew tho score was '26 to 22.

The Union Alumni Program.
The Union program Friday night
was by members of the alumni. Ow
ing to unusual pressure in his office,
due to preparations for the new build
ings, Secretary Dales, '73, was unable
to preside as was contemplated, and 0.
W. Meier, '98, acted as president. Mr.
Bootrum, '01, and Mr. Evans, '98,
never sang to better effect, and both
responded to pleasing encores. Dean
Pound, '98, after indulging In a few
amusing remlnescences extending back
slxteon years, gave a most Interesting
and enthusing talk upon the theme,
"Have we outgrown tho classics?" He
thought the tendency now is to build
roof first without paying very much
attention to the foundation, but thai
this seeming disregard for tho human
ities 1b periodical, and in time will give
way to closer study of them. It is nat
ural that It is so. We need men to de
voto their whole attention to feeding,
clothing and housing the peoplq, as
much as wo need scholars. It would
bo rather uncomfortable if everybody
were scholars. We should not expect
it, but a University Ib not doing all it
should if it falls to turn out a com
plete soholar, at least once in ten years.
Barring tho modern strides in harness
ing nature, there Is nothing but what
has been worked out long ago, and to
get hold of It in the best way it must
be dugr out of tho original. One who
never read Dante In the original never
got the best out of It. It is the same
with all literature and philosophy. And
life 1b not too short to do thoroughly
what Is worth undertaking at all. He.

The Sophomores' met yesterday and
endorsed the action of President Smith
in appointing two editors and two bus
iness managers for tho Sombrero next
year. This completes an interesting
controversy that has been hanging fire
for some time. The men who have
been placed In charge of the book hav!
made a public declaration that thoy
will try to distinguish their class and
show themselves worthy of tho trust
imposed in them by both class and
president, and that they are not in it
for personal gain, but for the honor
of publishing the best Sombrero that
the University ever had, regardless of
whether Individually they profit or not
by it. If they abide by their promises
they will certainly have an opportunity
to make a clean and honorable record,
and give us the best Sombrero the
University ever had, eliminating all the
features of graft and unsatisfactory
methods that have distinguished for
mer publications. This the clasB and
the University expect to Beo them do,
as they are by honor bound to do it.
Both sides in the contest may there
fore claim a certain measure or success
In their fight. Tho opponents of Pres
ident Smith's action in appointing tho
board have made their point, and
forced the election of tho board. On
L the other hand the president's follow
ers succeeded in defeating the choice
of a new board, and compelled tho ac
ceptance of Mr. Smith's appointments,
'the result, however, Is generally con
sidered to be a victory for the presi
dent, although his opponents seems to
regard that, since they have made their
point, tho mattor of the personal make
up of the board Is of little consequence.
Thus one of the most strenuous fights
in the hiBtory of class politics at the
University has passed, and the Soph
omore class is sottling dawn to peace
fulness and tranquility such as It has
not known since tho beginning of the
present semester. Some degree of the
bitterness and soreness that has
marked the attitudes of tho different
factions of the class still remains, but
the fight is regarded as a thing of the
past and general relief 1b felt. It has
been a long time since politics obtained
so strong a hold In tho minds of Uni
versity people as has marked tho re
cent struggle.
The success of tho president's couroe
of action must be attributed to the dila
tory tactics of his follower. Their
fight throughout has been one of ob
struction. They have deferred action
on tho question for over a month, In
tho hope that tho sentiment against
tho president would ultimately dlo out.
In this thoy have succeeded beyond
expectations. At the last meeting be
fore yesterday's tho sentimenC was al
most unanimously against them, and
only the president's appeal to his par
liamentary prerogatives saved his ap
pointments from rejection. But, In
spite of tho presenco of several uppor
clnssmon at yestorday'B meeting, thoro
Is no reasonable doubt of tho fairness
of tho voting. Tho class can havo no
kick coming.
Tho meeting was called to order at 10
o'clock sharp, and after a tasto of tho
usual bickering the vlnss at onco pro
ceeded to the settlement of tho diffi
culty. A motion, which tho president
declared In order desplto tho unfinished
buBincB8 of tho last meeting, was of
fered Instructing tho socretary to cast
tho vote of tho class for tho present
appolntecB. This succeeded in ovoklng
a somowhat listless discussion, which
finally ended by a vote being taken on
the proposition. Thu motion was car
ried 8G to 67. During tho process of
the debate Mason Wheeler addressed
the class In defence of tho board as ap
pointed by tho president. In effect, his
remarks were Identical with those pub
lished by tho board in a recent issuo
of the NebraBkan. They evoked con
siderable applauso.
The class proceeded to the election
of Bocrotary. Mr. J. D. Pollock and Mr.
P. A. Ewlng were placed In nomina
tion, but Mr. Ewlng withdrew his namo
and tho election of Mr. Pollock was
made unanimous. Misses Martha Cllne
and Maude Conger wero nominated for
treasurer, but no vote was taken and
the meeting adjourned.
Y. W. C. A. Notes.
Tho artist who will appear at tho
University chapel Saturday evening,
March 12, under the auspices of tho
University Y. W. C. A., 1b MIbb Martha
Tyler, of St. Louis, who has been made
tho recipient of many encomiums by
the musical critics of that city. One
of the best known of these, writing of
Miss Tyler's recent recital at tho St.
I-ouis Odeon, says:
" Her numbers were all
marked by a most unusual and delight
ful blending of poesy, music and dra
matic art. Rarely, if over, has a voice
been heard hero so marvelously rich
and puro, bo exquisitely flexible and
sympathetic as the contralto of this
artist. Her method 1b without a flaw;
her perfect enunciation an unforgotable
delight to the ear. How few singers
there are who do not sacriflco tho poet
to the composer."
"Miss Tyler's work In this regard was
a revelation. Each of her songs wns
a beautiful and harmonious wholo, no
one element subordinated to another,
but all, harmony, poem, declaration, so
combined as to form a matchless pic
ture of word and tone that arouse tho
coldest of her hcarors to enthusiastic
"The music world Is richer for Miss
Tyler's coming and it 1b a Bafo predic
tion that her rare talent will win for
this lady a fame and position re
served for great artists."
