A GREAT SUCCESS

Hills, parsed around the arena. Music
lurnls-hed by the cadet band and the
magnificent hand of the faculty blend
id beautifully with the cheering -of the
crowd; a this splendid parade passed
the giand stand. Following this with
ciicu.s like promptness was the beau
tiful and skillful exhibition of iiorse
manshio under the management of
Col. Bills. Thirty riders took part In
this and many and intricate were their
I erformances. At the .sound of the

however, and now singly and then by
twos marched up and down the field
until the crowd grew hoarse from
cheering Then they withdrew.

fioni the arena a stage coach pulled
by a four-horse team appeared unon
the field at a gallop. On top were a
do.en or so of fierce looking war
liors armed to the teeth. They were
looking for trouble. When they lookec1
at t'.io grandstand there was not a
peep, not a rooter in the bleachers
breathed until they had passed. Just
ar. thy thought themselves the mas
ters of all they survey a band of
noble red men rushed Into the field
with blood curdling yeils and gym
nastic stunts which would astound a
Dr. Clapp. Trouble began and shots
were exchanged. Then there was a

gentleman then volunteered to ride
It and was given the chance. He stuck
to the stirrups but so ambitious was
the horse to rise in the world and so
limited were his abilities that the
rider hit the saddle often and hard.
Indeed a lady in the audience was
heaid to say, "Oh. he'll hurt the horse,
loming down so hard on it."
One of the most enjoyable features
on the program followed this. It was
the exhibition of the horses from the
Ijiuoln Draught Horse Imp. Co. The
noises were fine animals and were
rully appreciated by tliealTdience. The
country stunts by the giant and the
midget followed. Naturally the midget
won oMt. but it must not be understood-that
It was by favoritism, for

In quick succession followed the
slow wheel- race, won by Prof. Eng

which Prof. Engberg again showed
himself to he the most proficient.
Then came the climax. Seventy-two
brave and husky Profs llndd up to
prcne to the students that they were
not so slow. It took some moments io
prasp the fact that this or that fav
irlte professor was lying on the ground
with several others on top. but when
they did the enthusiasm was intense.
"Don't crv little boy, don't cry." was
the farlte song.

yards by one of the Condraites. Then
followed a series of end runs and
tackle-back plays that made Hooth
envious Steadily the Condraites ad
anwd the baH to Emerson's 15-yard
line! There they were held and by a
neat kick Prof. Emerson got out of
danger. Here is where Dr Wolcot
shone. Taking the ball he showed that
he had beon watching "Dodging Ben

was run. Mr. Hatfield of the law
school won by fifty yards or less.
The second half of the football game
opened up with fury. Both sldeH were
bound to make a touchdown, but Con

his opponent's goal and just before

for a touchdown. Oraes kicked goal

It was all over.
On the financial side, the ircus was
alto a marked success. About $230
was taken in at the gate yesterday,
and this, with what was realized from
tickets previously sold and from the
refreshments served on the grounds,
will increase to about $350 about
the vame as was realized from the
Faculty Foolishness last year. The
doughnuts and coffee served at the
tent yesteidav. and which caused so
much favorable comment, came from
Sam Westerfleld's cafe.
GLEES MAY GET CREDIT.
Movement on Foot to Secure
Recognition for Singers.
It is piobable that those men who
are fortunate enough to be hosen as
members of the glee lub will receive
cne hour's ciedit per semester for
their .work. This was the announce
ment made at chapel yesterday morif
ing by Professor Fo3Slerr- and since
then the probability has become
sttonger than ever. The work of the
glee club is conducted in a thoroughly
systematic manner, and is oi very"
decided benefit to the members. It is
ery reasonable to expect university
cieditr lor it. say tho men wlTo are
behind the movement.
At tho first meeting of the club
Thursday evening over thirty candi
dates for places presented themselves.
Professor Eames considers this an
excellent Bhowing for the first try-out,
but expects many more at the meet
ing at 7 o'clock this evening. "With
our registration." he said to a Ne
biaskan representative last evening.
"o hundred men should try for places
on the glee club."
The 'plans of the club this .year con
template much more frequent public
appearance than last year, and a num
ber of trips out In the state will be
made. With the interest that is being
shown already. It would seem that a
most prosperous year is 'in prospect
fo: the club.

Gophors Plug Up- Davis Secures
Modification of Contract.
Manager Dais retun..l iioni his
Hip to Minnesota yeFteruay. He re
ports that Minnesota Is talking of al
most nothing else but the Nebraska
game, and will do her best to letrieve
the defeat of two years ago.
Tho most Important part of Mr.
Dals'B mission in Minneapolis was
accomplished. Our contract wlth0the
Gophers provided that the receipts
s(rom the game would be evenly dl
vTclcul up to $8,000. Mr Davis secured
a further concession in the way of
an oquaFHlvislon of all proceeds lrom
tickets sold by the football manage
ment In Lincoln, irrespective oi tho
above amount. This will not. of
com se. amount to much In case no
excursion Is run from I incoln. or in
case any execnrslon which may be run
is not well attended
A conference of re pi esentathes of
five railroads, which are competing for
the excursion, met In Lincoln yester
day morning and agreed on a rate of
$12.40 for the round trip. Since the
admission to the game will amount to
about $2. this rate means that the
actual expenses of the trip could not
be much less than $20, which Is too
much to guarantee a good crowd
The i ate is considered, however, as a
mere bluff on the part of the railroads,
and some lively cutting is anticipated
before the excursion is actually as
sured. A rate of $f from Omaha to
Minneapolis goes into effect next Mon
day and It is thought that this may
have some effect on the football ex
cursion, since It would only mean a
continuance of the rate for a couple
of days. Conjecture as to what the
railroads may do. Is, however, mostly
hot air. But It is a cinch that a rate
of $12.40 will not prove irreslstabloy
attractive to Nebraska rooterB. In Fpite
of their desire to see the Gophers beat
In the Tfieanwhile, preparations are
gcjln merrily on In Minneapolis for
a glorious reception to the Cornhusk
ers. The PreFs club dance, which was
noted at some length, in a recent num
ber, of the Nebraskan. continues to
be almost as Interesting a topic judg.
ing from the univeisltv papers as the
game Itself. In addition toth fea
tures promised for the event last week,
a number of new and decidedly unique
events have been schedulod.
"The committee in charge is making
plans for entertaining the visitors In
true Minnesota style. The list of
stunts is daily growing longer and
more picturesque. The best thing se
cured so far Is the farce presented by
the Freshmen girls last year, entitled
'Six Cups of Chocolate.' This will be
the chief featuro of the evening, but
several shorter events more of tho
athletic In character, will be pulled
off." savs the Minnesota Daily. A
large attendance of Nebraskans at the
dance is anticipated and the whole
affair promises to be the foremost so
cial event of the university year.
A number of the local fraternities
have received Invitations from their
brothers at. Minneapolis to be enter
tained by them during their stay in
