University Beats Wesleyan by a
Single Score.
The basket ball team detented Wes-
Moyan Saturday night by a seflro of
32-31. The score does not indicate the
, strength of the Nebraska team, Tor
they played ngaliiBt great odds. The
'.Wesleyan, floor is very small, being
much belp'w the regulation slzo of a
hasJierTToll court, and tho speutatorB
jWere seated along- the side UnoK and
'inanv times lnterfere.d ..with tho game.
'lJrQbably the most serious objection to
'the' court Is th6 lack of out-of-bounde
territory, at tho end, which hindered
'the or.k"oT tho Nebraska men mator-

'especially tho walls at tho end. Jhe

Second Annual Conhtske

Second-Year People Defeat El
dors in Close Battle.
A large (iowd of some ten or fif
teen persons witnessed two very ex
citing game of football on the campus
Saturday alternoon. The first one
was between the Sophomores and the
Juniors to decide the winner of the
Auidomic class ( liampionahip. From
the showing of the two teams In their
pr? iuis games an easy victory for
t no Sophs, was looked for by most of
the rooteif-, but from the (list kick
off until the lat fle minutes of play
it was a question ns (o the winner.
Cork at half for the Junior) made from
ten to twenty yards around the end
or through tackle time after time, and
for a time it looked as if the Juniors
had the game Iiuim up. In the last
;,ait of the second half the Sophs got
their machine in working order and
bucked their way the length of the
Jield for a toudidown Just before time
was called, Little smashing through
tackle for three yards after being held
twWe without any gain.
The second game was between the
Senior and Fteshman I aws for the
I aw championship, and was the best
exhibition of football noon on Nebras
ka fiold for many a day. The Soniors
leceived tho kick-off and failed to
make their distance tho very first
time. Ringer punted and on the first
play Johnson broke away for a touch
down. In tho eight minutes loft to
play tho Freshnjen repeated the opera
tion twice and the half ended with the
score of KJ to 0.
Hnnch Cantnin and Trainer Ringei
put some ginger into his men during
tne time uoiweon naiveb, unu m iukui
developed a very strong defense. The
feature of this half was Cotton's car
rying the ball T3f yards tor the Seniors
in 17 downs. His magnificent de
fense prevented the Freshmen from
scoring during this half.
By winning this game the Fresh
men won the law championship, and
by the new uiles adopted this year
