THE FIRST GAME
Highland Park to Play Basket
Ball Next Week.
A Hop In Connection. Some Football
Some twenty-fivo men were out for
basket ball practice last night. The
work was tho swiftest yet dono. Pass
ing and goal throwing wore quick
and accurate. Tho men are rapidly
getting Into good form. Saturday
night the first game of tho season
will bo played when we line up against
Wesloyan on their floor. Tho follow
ing Friday evening, December 9th,
Highland Park will bo here for a game
on our floor. Nothing Is known of tho
strongth of tho Iowans, but they usu
ally do things woll athletically there,
and a good gamo can bo looked for.
After tho gamo a danco will be given
In tho armory. As yet tho price of
admission has not been decided upon,
but It will bo low enough to allow all
who wish, to attend.
A number of radical changes will
probably bo mado in tho football
schedule for next year. Tho Haskell
Indian gamo will doubtless bo dropped
entirely, and, If Colorado is (played at
all, the game will bo in Lincoln. Man
ager Davis states that a Nebraska foot
ball team will probably never attempt
to play under such circumstances as
faced tho Cornhuskors at Boulder this
fall, but that a gamo may bo arranged
With tho westerners on tho local Held.
Several of tho smaller colleges of
tho west aro clamoring for a game
with Nebraska. Tho latest of these
is Washburn college at Topeka, Kan.
Washburn lias recontly been Bhowing
surprising strength In athletics, par
ticularly In football, and defeated
Kansas last year In a close game. This
year tho Jayhawkers dofeatel them
only by a single touchdown, and they
held Haskell to 14 points.
It Ib possible that they may bo
brought to Lincoln for an early sea
son gamo, such as tho Grlnnell con
test, which will probably not be a
part of next year's schedule. While
Washburn Is not as woll known in
Lincoln as Nebraska 1b at Topeka,
tho experience of tho games in Colo
rado has proved that early season
trips aro financially risky.
In this connection, tho following
from the Washburn Review, may bo
"All efforts should be made this
year to schedule a game with Nebras
ka university for next season. This
season"TTaa turned out very success
ful and the prospects for next year
are equally as good. Tho comparison
of the work of tho two teams In tho
contests witb tho Haskell Indians
show Nebraska and Washburn to havo
about the same strength.
"Nebraska Is considering tho mat
ter of dropping the gamo with tho In
dians and Tho Dally Nobraskan in a
recent,, editorial taking tho matter up
at length advises tho athletic author
ities to drop tho Indian contest and
take up a match with some other col
lego. Washburn's schedule should be
bo made out as to take tho gome
formerly played with Haskell If tho
Cornhuskors decide to drop the red
"A match game between tho univer
sity at Lincoln, and the college at To
peka would be tho strongest drawing
card of tho season and there are sev
eral reasons why It should bo played.
Both teams would profit "financially
fand tho relations between Washburn
and Nebraska wjoitfd become mluch
closer. Nobraska now has no game
with' a college team In Kansas. Her
only gamo Is wdth the Indians and Is
not played under college rules. K. U.
has never been able to do anything
more than make a face at Nebraska
Amoy, December JO
Given under Auspices of the Y. W. C, A.
and probably never will. It is Wash
burn's part to represent the state In
a college gamo with tho neighboring
stato to the north. The college team
from tho capital city of Kansas should
meet their university friends from
the capital city of Nebraska. No gamo
played In either state would be
watched with moro interest."
Tho Washburn people are said to
play a clean, sportsmanlike game, and,
unless tho financial sldo of the- matter
should prove the contest unadvisable,
a gamo will probably be arranged.
Knox college will probably meet us
again. The Galesburg men are gentle
men as woll as Bportsmen, and are
woll liked by Lincoln people, although
they havo been easily defeated the
ipost two years.
None of tho larger games have been
scheduled yet, though correspondence
is being carried on with several "Big
Nino" schools. It will probably be
some time before the entire schedule
can be announced.
County Fair Managers Over
whelmed With Work.
The annual county fair of the Y. W.
C. A. will be hold in the Armory on
Saturday evening, December 10. Many
attractive shows have obtained licenses
to exhibit on the "grounds" and the

other applications. A genuine fat man
will bo there, as well as a grand "Old
Plantation." A baby show is also be
All objectionable features will be
excluded and nothing worse than
striking machines and nigger-baby
throwing contests have been granted
tho use of the grounds. Flower, candy
ond red lemonade booths will be much
in evidence, and to pleasethe Fresh
men, a well known juvenile entertain
ment, entitled "Punch and Judy," will
bo presented. Moro experienced per
sons may amuse themselves in a
pretty little diversion consisting of
walnut shells and ordinary peas,
which is said to be most original in
Each, of the sororities, and several
of the fraternities will conduct exhib
its, and present Indications point to a
repetition of last year's success.
