UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA, LINCOLN, SATURDAY, OCT. J5, 1904.
GO THIS MORNING
Foot Ball Men and Rooter3 Leave
at 930 this Morning.
A IMcnftiiiit Trip U Anticipated, - I.itrgo
Crowd W1U Clo.
The team leaves this morning over
the Burlington for Omaha for the
Creighton game. On the same train
the special excursion to the game will
he run. A large section has been re
served in the grandstand at the Vinton
street park, where the game will be
played, for Nebraska rooters, and
every man who accompanies the team
is expected to bring his megaphone.
The game will be called at 3 o'clock
Twenty minute halves will be played
Practice last night consisted only
of signal work. Weller was tried at
center, Mills' arm keeping him out of
the game, and Borg's ankle being htill
too weak to exercise much. Practice
was swift, and every man showed a
snap and go that has been somewhat
lacking since the Colorado game. The
work last night bids evil to Creighton
this afternoon. The following men
compose the squad to play Creighton:
Mills, Borg, Barta, Mason (Cy). Burns.
Robertson, Johnson, Benedict, Ben
der. Mason (G.). Eager, Weller, Marsh,
Fenlon, Barwlck, Cotton, Speer, Shook,
Lundin, Standeven, Craig. McDonald,
Denslow. From the number of men
Coach Booth evidently Intends to try
out quite a number.
Extra basketball practice was had
last night, and a" good" squad was on
hand. Interest this year in basket
ball is keen, large squads report at
each practice and the work Is the
""swiftest for this time of the season
that it has been for some years.
Another championship team in basket
ball seems quite probable.
Democrats Will Hold Important
Meeting Next Week.
The Jeffeison club is arranging for
a business meeting the first of next
week, at which time the reports of
several committees -will be listened to
One of the Important things up for
consideration is the fact that the state
central committee has offered to re
serve two hundred seats for Jefferson

university at the Folk-Berge tally to
be held at the Auditorium the 24th
' of October, providing they guarantee
to fill the required number. This
jneeting. which is to be held at the
closing hours of the state campaign,
promises to be a loader, and the ap
pearance of the-- famous Missouri
boodle prosecutor should makejt very
easy tosecure the required number
to engage these seats.

Freshman Laws Seek Admission
to Interclass Athletics.
The fieshman law class held a lous
ing meeting during the convocation
hour yesterday morning, and succeeded
In electing a full list of officers with
out the usual lengthy forensic com
bat. The Freshman class boasts of
a number of excellent orators among
its members, but they showed a won
derful consideration for the less gifted
classmates, and refrained from any
long oratorical stretches. The meet
ing was harmonious in the extreme,
and the following list of officers was
First vice-president Miss Rust.
Second vice-president Miss Court

The class authorized the president
to appoint an athletic committee to
manage the athletic teams and this
committee was Instructed to butt In to

What They Have Done at Tho
It has boen a number of years since
the first Young Women's Christian
associations were organized in Ne
braska and they have rapidly grown
to be a necessity In the many colleges
and cities where they are located. The
state university, five dcnominal institu
tions, three normal schools, three
academies, and the Lincoln city as
sociation Indicate the field of work.
It stands for the highest Chiistiau
culture for young women In city, col
lege and town, preparing them by Its
departmental plan of work for re
sponsible places of leadership. The fine
gymnasium training, the social times,
the delightful rooms for lunch and
rest, the missionary work, and, most
of all, the devotional meetings and
Bible study classes, make the associa
tion most desirable where there are
voting women. There Is not a town
In our states so small nor a city so
laige that there cannot be found young
women who long for broader lives.
Some have Leon denied the opportunity
of an extensive education; some are
busy with college work and need the
telaxatlon of a "quiet, hour, some
wish to do helpful work in the church
or Sunday school, but know they are
poorly preparod for It: still otheis long
for a betetr social life. To all these
comes this association of Christian
young women, eager with Its scores of
helpers, and the co-operation of thou
sands of others In the same work, to
seek with them a larger life. There. Is
not a town or college in the state that
would not find Its young women de
lighted and profited by the association
Twenty-one representative women of
the state form the state committee,
with headquarters at Lincoln. These
women hhe a traveling secretary, who
gives to Nebraska four and a third
months of her time this year; they
plan the financial support, oversee the
work of all associations, and have In
charge the state convention, which Is
onteitalned this yefrr at University'
Place bv the large association of Ne
braska Wesleyan University. October
21-23. To this meeting are Invited all
the young women of the state. Those
planning It expect this will be fhe
largest convention ever held by the
organization In this state. A fuller
statement ot convention plans and
statement of. conve
fcneakefe will follow.
Faculty Teams Will Line Up the
Same as Last Year.
It hns been decided that the two
teams which will line up against each
other In desperate conflict at the
World's Famous Big Consolidated
Faculty Shows next Thursday will bo
composed as far as Is possible of tho
same players that composed the teams
which fought to a draw last year.
Last year's team was as follows:
Pound r e Evans
Morltz r. t.. Almy, Wallace
Dorman r. g Hanna
Willard c Condra
Emerson 1. t Votaw
Cook 1. t Bolton, Fee
Qlements 1. e Congdon
Moore q. b Walto

Shedd f. b Woodruff
Sheldon 1. h Clapp

Of these men. several are not In the
university this yoar. Morltz. Arbuth-
Jnot. Cook. Wallace, Hanna. and Crab-
tree nave leit tno lacuity. tnus leaving
a number of awkward holes to be filled.
A number of new candidates for these
rosltlons have presented themselves,
however, and the contest is becoming
keen for places. Professor Shedd is
seriously considering the platlslbUity
of lining his men up for night practice,
on account of apparently well-substan
tiated reports which are being circu
lated to the effect that his signals and
trick plays are being spied upon by
Professor Condra's assistants The lat
ter emphatically denies the charge. In
sinuating that there Is no necessity
for such proceedings, as ho expects an
oasy time with Shedd's team, on ac
count of their lack of form after lac
season Is so well under way From
this he argues that the men are either
being ovei trained, and are becoming
btale to the game, or are affected by
team dissentlons which prevent their
working together well. A close game
Is expected, however.
In spite of Condra's protest. It seems
that full 35-mlnute halves are to be
played. Officials .have not been se
lected as yet.

"Colotado was In a much farther ad

squad Is small and the team was picked

They have practiced together over
since and are now practically as good
as they can be.
"On the other hand. Nebraska Is
only in the beginning of Its develop
ment. Another reason for their de
feat waB that the Cornhuskers' right
tackle and guard were out of the
game, and Colorado made all her gains
through those positions.
"Then, too, the Nebraskans were
afraid of the high altitude and refused
to play hard for fear they would givo

Bender's long runs were remarkable."
