The announcement that the .rooting
squads would be organized at football
practice yesterday arternoon brought
out a largo crowd, but the rain storm
not only prevented any attempt at
foimlng squads, but also compelled the
men to abandon practice and seek
Hafet iu the gymnasium. While every
day counts a lot at this time of the
season, the men are still too soft to
take an chances with a slippery Held,
"v?i'h would probably cause a sprain
or a broken rib for some unfortunate
player. Before the rain began Booth
amused, the boys with a little tackling
mactice on the long-suffering dummy.
Then the most promising candidates
tried their skill at kicking goals from
vatlous different positions. This was
a branch of the game In which we
Weie ery mediocre last season, and
Booth doesn't fe'el that he can stand
to Io?e a G-5 game to Minnesota merely
because he has no goal kickers.
The Grlntiel game next Saturday
will Le a far better contest than the
last two. While Orlnnel has never
Fliown championship form since de
leating Minnesota Fix or seven years
ago, s-he always puts a pluck and fast
team on the gridiion. and Nebraska
will hae to win every fiist down she

ship team this year and expects to
take the state championship away from
Iowa and Ames. If such is the case
the game wlll.be as exciting as any one
could wish, and will give us a line on
tho outcome of the game against Iowa

A dispatch to one of the xity papers
r avs, that Cotton, the bfg guard of the
h?t'two seasons, was being tried at
tackle on tho Yalo scrubs, and that
f'nptaln Hogrni had been unable to
"' box him eo that he could not break
up the Yalo offense. This Is good news
to Nebraskane, for It shows that a
r4ornhu3ker can hold his own any
where. Under the eastern eligibility
rule?. Cotton will not bo able to play
ou the Yale team luring his first year
there, but all of his well-wishers hope
to see him got his Y the season after.

much enthusiasm was manifested.
This work lias bean very much' en

in It In past years, and a large at
tendance Is anticipated this year.
An event of marked Inteiest last

time of selections fiom Handel's gieat
work, the "Messiah." This 13 the mo3t

It Is the purpose of those Interested
in this department to make its per
formance an annual occunence. It Is
desired that all students who have
previously sung thla work, but who
cannot attend choiU3 regularly, should
occasionally come to lehearsals, and
be ready to assist In the program,
which wi'.l be ghen Just boforc tho
holiday season. A Wagner program
also Is planned, which will attract
many, while for tho commencement
concert It Is probable that Mendels
sohn's "Elijah" will bo given. This
oratoiio stands next to the "Messiah"
In tho hearts of the people, and its
dramatic power never fails to iouse
gieat enthusiasm. The following list
of the works given during the oast
few years may be of interest. Han
del's "Messiah." Haydn's "Creation.;
Mondc's?ohn'K "Hymn of Praise" and
"Elilah." Cowen's "St. John's Eve."
Coleiidge Taylor's "Hiawatha's Wed

Verdi's opera, "Alda" In concert form
Tho class meets three times weekly
and niembeis are given one hour credit
each semester. The times of meeting
are Tuesday and Thursday at 3 o'clock,
and the same hour on either Fiiday
or Saturday, as the class may decide.
Students have the remainder of this
week in which to register for this
work and it Is hoped that all who
have good chorus voices will avail
themselves of it.
The material already In the class Is
excellent, but the larger the number
tho better, as these large works need
volume to make the best possible ef

Assistant Base Ball Manager does
Not Want Management.
Yesteiday It was announced that J
F Allen. Eail Eager and F. A. Sweeley,
now assistant manager of the baseball
team were in the race for the man
agement of the team. Since then Mr
Sweeley hns withdiawn his name from
the contest, leaving only two men to
be considered at the meeting of the
ath'etic boaid next Monday evening.
Mr. Sweoley'a withdrawal created
nuich Fin prise among those awaie of
it. His experience as assistant man
ager last year had made hinvn logical
candldato for the management this
year. Mr. Eager and Mr. Allen aie,
however, both excellent men for the
place and either would doubtless con
tribute much to the success of tho
team. Mr. Eager Is wel known as

"We extend hearty welcome to all

of worlc. This settlement Ir not a
charity organization but It Is a labor
atory for .sacrogloglcal oxperlmonts. It
Is a place to practice the theories that
