WALT'S FULL ORCHESTRA. TICKETS $2.00.
The doubtful weather conditions
seem to stand in the way or a game
this afternoon with the Omaha league
team. If the worst is realized then
Indeed wo will have cause for regret,
since the two games .promised have
been looked forward to with much ex
pectation. We understood yesterday
that a fence would be put up so as
to deprive the curious of an oppor
tunity of viewing the proceedings of
the game from without
If It Is possible' to meet the league r,
our team may have reason to expet
stiffer time than experienced at the
former meetings. The Omaha men
havo been getting in lots of practice
and developing team work, so that they
will doubtless play together better than
before. l.etbei;by, the former ITnLver
sliy star, has been tried and pioved
below the league standard, as well as
Flake, the man who played shortstop.
Omaha has been mauled by big
league teams, but has dealt quite satis
factorily wjth St. Joe. If the two
games arranged can be played, an in
teresting time can be looked for. and
we do not believe that either contest
will bo one-sided. But rain Is the
worst enemy that baseball has. and
unices, the, weather conditions are
much more favorable than they were
"last night "both games may be declared
THE SOCIAL SIDE.
Variety of Entertainment for Vis
iting Minnesota Girls.
Elaborate preparations are being
made for the entertainment of the
Minnesota girls' basket-ball team dur
lng.ita coming visit to the University,
and the wtelcome accorded the Nebras
ka girls at Minneapolis last month will
bo outdone, If possible, by the recep
tion to the Gopher girls next Friday.
The management of the girls' team
here is doing everything possible to
make the match a big success, and a
' number of attractions have already
be'on arranged for which seem to as
sure that result.
The' team Is schedule to arrive at
10:10 a. m. Friday over the Burllng-
' ton, and a big crowd will be on hand
to meet them.
It Is expected that every girl In the
Univrrblty will turn out to wekome
the Gophers, there being no doubt
whatever as to the attendance of the
men. From two to three o'clock in the
afternoon the Armory will be turned
o.er to the isltors for goal practice.
Immediately following this, they will
l.o taken lor a tally-ho ride. over Lin
coln and vicinity, rrovlding tin
wrntlur is favorable
The game begins nt S: 15 p. m. In the
Armory. The attraction between
halves will be tho city Y. W. C. A. vs.
the Academy. Theso old opponents
expect to meet this time according to
the strict woman's rules. Involving
the three-court limitations, thus afford
ing an excellent contrast to tho other
game, which will be played more or
lers according to the rules of the men's
game. Tho patroncBHes for the even
ing will be Mis. W. J. Bryan. Mrs. C
II. Gere and Mrs. H. H. Wilson. After
tho match a chafing dish party will bo
ghen to tho members' of tho team bj
the Kappa Kappa Gammas at the hom
of Miss Gladys Hargreavos.
The big tennis team's tournament
between Miss Emily Johnston of Min
nesota and Inez Everett of Nebraska
will be held at 10:30 Saturday morn
ing on the campus. At one o'clock- a
luncheon will be served to both teams
at the l.indell ordinary. In the after
noon a tea will be tendered the team
at the Kanna Alpha Theta house.
The Minnesota team leaves at six
o'clock Saturday afternoon over tho
DEFENDS THE CAPS.
Freshman Sets Forth Views In a
Editor Dally Nebraskan:
The Fieshmen will wear caps. Tho
majority hae otcd for the Insignia
and there fs no other harmonious
course than for the minority to concur
in the project.
Much agitation from non-Interested
members has been the result of their
action, but how much Justice and prac
tical logic is there in tho evidence they
are-producing to prohibit the lower
classmen from Wearing a badge that
distinguishes their organization from
numerous others In the Ujnlverslty?
Tho only argument that has thus
far been produced by the upper class
men can bo summarized in one sen
tence, namely. That none of them
were accorded such privileges In their
early career. They say that they did
not wear caps, therefore we must not.
Now, an analysis of the force or their
logic will not come amiss. According
to their theory a boy should not have
an education because his father is an
illiterate man. a girl Bhould spin and
weave today, no matter how many In
ventions havo been introduced, be
cause her mother was compelled to do
do so. In other words, Ihey argue that
wo can do nothing but ape those who
havo preceded us. It Is not hard to see
how fallacious and notoriously prepos
terous thoii premise1! are. Had each
s-uoeecdlng class followed In the time
worn path of their predecessors, wo
ask tho elder gentlemen, how much
piogrot-s would have boon made In tho
history of our University. Tho clans
of '07 Is Initiating a new custom, one
which Is a harmless stimulant of class
loyalty, and Is not given ns a chal
lenge to Incite antagonism among our
Wo hac many reasons upon which
we bae our claims and those who are
open lo a sense of justice must give
thorn due credence.
Vo are the largest class organization
In the institution; wo have more icp
resontatives In athletics, more who at
tend these tournaments, and as indi
viduals hae not been excelled In con
li Uniting to tho temple fund.
Aside from this, in all functions
given by the upper classmen wo have
contributed liburally of our time and
money to make them a success. Why,
then, can they conscientiously place a
damper on a simple action that In n
way Interferes with their organiza
tions. If there Is any justice In such
action, we fall to-see It. We might
pass a resolution that It Is obnoxious
to our vision to see the ten or a dozen
sophomores wear their caps and our
power to annihilate them would not be
questioijeel by applying our force of
numbers, but we do not consider what
they eat, drink or wear, or how fan
tastically they part their hair, one
atom of our bubiness. We believe that
our liberty ends where that of our
neighbor begins. Wo have not made
a declaration of war, as has frequently
been charged to us. We have simply
exorcised a right which belongs to no
one but the class of '07.
We have no purpose to antagonize
our senior friends. We are but show
Ins our class snlrlt. and those classes
who come after us may follow In ourl
footsteps If they see lit, but If their
good sense should direct them to take
another course and Improve upon tho
path wo have hewn, we hope that we
shall be able to refrain from any hos
tile a,ction, but cheer them on in their
desire to surpass their predecessors.
