. This afternoon the famous Nebraska
Indians will perform on our athletic
field for the amusement of the popu
lace. This enterprising bunch has tho
habit in touring the states to the east
of us and cinching the greater part
of tho games that they play. When
they get into their mid-season form
they play a tiff game. They have
been making thenr headquaTters 1n
Lincoln for the past week and have
had opportunity for getting In some
The University learn has been con
tinuing its practice regularly, and the
Holders are holding the ball as they
ought to do. Class- and fraternity
teams have been invading the field this
week, and it has been a scene of near
ly constant activity.
The game this afternoon will be a
good one, as the Indians have not
been practicing for nothing. They were
beaten by our team last year, and
would appreciate a- victory this after
noon quite highly. But they look no
better to our team than they have
looktd in tho past, and the chances
nro that they wil have plenty of op
portunity to exert themselves. To
morrow they will again play us.
Adams will probably pitch this af
ternoon. He is entirely recovered
from tho Injury he received at Teeum
seh, and is In pretty good form. The
men arc all showing up fast In prac
tice, and this afternoon's game will
bo worth, tho trouble of coming to see.

PEDAGOGICAL CLUB MEETS.
Number of Interesting Addresses
by Prominent Instructors.
The Pedagogical club met Wednes
day evening in room 212 University
hall. Thero was an unusually large
- Professor Luckey Mrs. B. M. Clark,
secretary of the Teachers' 1nire.au, Who
told of tho wotic and tho plans of the
bureau. It alms to assist graduates
In securing good positions. The Uni
versity makes no charge for these ser
vices. Mrs. Clark has changed her
office from U. 104 to U. 107, where she
may bo found from three until four
o'clock every afternoon.
Processor Luckey then explained
that those wn have to do with the
plnchig of teachers must recommend
those best adapted to the )osltions to
bo ft' led. Tho right teaoher In tho
right H)sition is the aim of the Uni
versity. It is doing a teacher an In
jury to recommend her for a posi
tion for which sho te not suited.
Prof elisor Luckey then introduced
Dr. II. K. Woire. principal of the Lin
coln High School, who spoke on "The
Personal Characteristics that tend tf
influence the amployment and suc
cess of teachers as seen from the
standpoint of principal of tb.e High
standpoint of the principal or the
He spoke in part as follows: "The
ideal teaoher or ono who approaches
the ideal seldom goes into the profes
sion of leaching, because he who is an
cal teacher would also be success
ful in business or some other lino of
work moro remunerative. Teachers
go into their work with a missionary
spirit, because they love the work.
Thero is no such thing as an actAial
ideal The ideal is something Mm
faith. It is hoped for and not seen.'
Thr speaker then mentioned .some
of the characteristics of a teacher that
might approach tho Ideal: Perfect
health, vigor and force, firmness, a
knowledge of subjects to be taught,
a wide oxperienco with tho world and
imagination arc all valuable to the
high school teacher.
Dr. Wolfe emphasized the power of
the human volco In controlling pupils.
A positive, strong voice will do won
ders to control high school pupils.
Along with tho firm voice should conic
tho equally firm, dogmatic, positiv
manner. These characteristics would
not make for success in the grades or
la the university, but arc effoofhe
In the average high school.
Tho fcpeaker also warned teachem
against nagging pupils. Nagging is
perhapb as sure death' to the high
school pupil as blood lotting. You wil1
not get anything from a pupil if you
General knowledge is of more im
portance in the high school than spe
cial knowledge. General knowledge is
necessary to get tho pupil to wake
up and do something. Astronomy is
one of the branches which It is well
for a tacher to have evenif he does
not teach it.
Teachers should be Imaginative.
Most of them are too -prosaic. They
should let their Imaginations run at
least as fast as that of the child. A
teaolu r should possess high moral
qualities, and should bo genuine.
Dr. Wolfe considers that tho teach
er In Nebraska today has a better op
portunity to get good positions and a
good salary than tho teacher of twen
ty or twenty-five years ago.
The meetings of the Pedagogical
club are very helpful to those prepar
ing to teach.
Strong Address by Dr. Greene
In addition to tho unusually mtrong
address scheduled for tho men's meet
ing in. Memorial Hall next Sunday af
ternoon at 3 o'clock, when Dr. .1. L.
Greene, superintendent of the state
hwpital for iasane. will speak, a rare
musical treat is in store for University
men In uttPtidance. Messrs. C. W. Tul
leys and II. W. Bradford, both young
men prominent In university circles,
will sing. Roth of these gentlemen
hae voices of rich tone quality, and
have a promising future before them.
They have entertained University aud
iences on many occasions, alwa?
singing with feeling and ofict t
"A Thing Every Man Ought to
Know" certainly ini hides every man
in tills University. Dr. Greene is one
of those men who have something of
importance to say. and who at the
same time has tho faculty of saying it
in an impressive and interesting man
ner. He is known as a reliable pjo
cialist far beyond the bounds of this
state, and is a recognized authority in
the line of work In which he has made
a special investigation.
Tills meeting will .last Just one
hour, and will yield much profit to
any and every man.
Farm Team Beats Cotner.

For tho next two weeks the noon
meetings will be led by members of
the new cabinet.
Last Saturday afternoon. Miss Ethel
Lee Howie was called to her home at

old home at Washington, la. A num
ber of tho girls were at the depot with
flowers for tho bereaved ones. It Is
hoped Ethel will return to tho Univer
sity and finish her course.
Yesterday Completed The Rho
des Scholarship Examinations.
The Rhodes Scholarship examina
tions closed yesterday afternoon. Six
in all were given, and the grounds In
Greek, Latin and mathematics were
thoroughly covered. No one who took
the examinations cares to claim that
they were especially easy, while most
of the candidates adhere strongly to
the contrary view. All are glad that
tho examinations wcro simply qualify,
ing. but none regret having taken
thorn as the discipline in reviewing
and in doing the necessary work was
Much indeflnitcnoRs prevailed con
cerning these examinations', and in
tho-futuro It will lie possible to knoiy
moro abofct them. Tho Information
and directions sent out from London,
were both In themselves clear and ex
plicit, but some Important points wero
not made clear, when knowledge con
cerning them would have been appre
ciated. It is not known wnat tho pass
ing grade is or when word will be
sen from London concerning the re
sults. Many other technical things
are obscure, but It Is expected that, en
lightenment will be. furnished regard
ing there bofoio the next examination
The candidates wore given work re
quiring twelve hours close application
Tho tests in Greek and Latin were
considered quite rigorous. None of
candidates complained of the transla
tion of Uio text Into English, and the
Latin piose composition while uncer
tain did not cause much trouble.
Greek translation was not especially
difficult for most of the men. But all
of them are loud in condemning
Greek grammar, because of tho diffi
cultlea presented. Some of them had
spent many weary hours cramming on
points that were nover touched upon,
only to be assailed from their weat
side by some indescribable eccentrici
ty of form that was an utter stranger
to them. Form was more frequently
touched upon that had been expected
and syntax was almost entirely over
looked. This represents to a eortaln de
gree the different methods of training
in America and England.
Some of the candidates were re
minded of the fact that arithmetic was
not so easy as it might have been.
A number of catches were thrown in.
Algebra contained a number of things
that had long since been banished
from their memories and which wer
hard to recall. The much dreaded bi
nomial theorem remained unsprung.
Immediately after each examination
was closed the lists of answers were
sealed up and sent to Washington, D.
C, whence they will bo forwarded to
London. Some time must elapse be
fore the announcements of. the results
will be received. The committee
awarding the scholarship will meet In
June and consider the all-around capa
bilities, of tho men who have qualified.
