The long expected Senior Annual has
a', last put In an appearance and comes
u;j to the most extravagant boasts of
the Seniors that theirs was to be the
1-tst Senior publication ever issued in
the University. The excellent frontis
piece of Professor Lawrence Fossler,
to whom the book Is dedicated, gives
a hint as to the merit of the remainder
Oi the work. The nlbertypes, used hero
for the first time in an Academic an
nual, are far more artistic and true to
the subject than the ordinary half
tr.ne woik usually used. The effective
ness of the albertypes is greatly in-
ct eased and their artistic merit greatly
enhanced by the excellent backgrounds
drawn for them by Miss Rudersdorf.
The Omaha section of the College -of
Medicine has its first representation In
a University Senior Annual -in this
The humorous calendar, begun bo
successfully a year ago, is continued
here with equal success.
The literary section of the book is
letreshlngly Bhort. This part of the
average annual Is usually left to the
last, and- often never read, and yet,
i too often, It composes too large a part
9 ol the book. The '05 editors have put
in Just enough of the literary to be
tolerable and what is printed is worth
The book Is rich in the features
which always attract the student read
ers, the Jo3hes and the cartoons. The
Jokes are especially apt and opportune,
flitting the deserving and undeserving
the guilty and the innocent alike, and
the cartoons aren't far behind In this
respect. There Is a noticeable lack of
hat ib lowly concehed and apt to
hurt the Individual's feellaj0jjthrough
out the whole.
The last few pages of reading mat
ter in the book hive been very gener--
.oiisly devoted to the coming Junior
Annual In the laudable offort to boost
that publication, and In the hope, no
doubt, that a boost In return may bo
Only one criticism-can be offered.
In one or two places tho editors of the
book have "laid It on" ralhor too thick
ly yet the fact that the shortcomings
so emphasized are treated not at all
seriously offers some grounds for the
thickness of the spread.
The mechanical portion of the book
holds Its own with the high standard
oi' tho reading matter. Tho best of
puper is used throughout, the cloth,
green and "White cover, while display
ing the class colore, Is very durable.
The advertising portion is made read
able by a number of joshes, among
them somo of the most luscious of the
take-offs, being scattered here and
The book is its own best recommend
ation and should be in the hands of
every student in the University as tho
best Senior Annual yet published.
fRESHMEN WELL POSTED
"Koppa Caps' Presumably Sophs,

Again the city billboards and fences
have been used to advertise the real
Insignificance of the University Fresh
men. Prompted by righteous Indignn
tion and by a desire to preserve the
ancient and honored tradition that tho
Fresh ies shall not wear class caps
the mysterious order of "Koppa Kapv
sprang up in a night and posted direst
warnings to the presumptuous year
ling; posters so large amL.plaln that
w who runs may read.
In spite of the fact that the attempt
of last year's Freshmen to wear a
tlass cap met with such ignominous
failure the Intreped 08ers took action,
In class meeting assembled, to wear
01 attempt to wear the Insignia for
bidden them by tradition and by tho
upper classes. The caps have been or
dered Borne little tlmo and were ex
pected to put In an appearance before
now. In anticipation of their near
advent the posters, of which the above
is a duplicate, In minature, were posted
by the awfully significantly sounding
"Koppa Kap" ors.
It Is hardly to be hoped that theso
threats, fierce as they are, will deter
the Fresh les from the attempt to wear
their caps, but that any such attempt
will meet with some slight opposition
these glaring compositions clearly indicate.
Prof. Grlmann addressed a large
number of students at Convocation
yesterday morning on "Tannhauser."
He said that old German legend writ
ers often pictured Greek gods nnd
goddesses as witches. That In Tann
hauser venus was a tempter who lured
men into her snares at "Venusberg,"
some authors picture Tannhauser leav
ing Venus-berg on account of his con
science, while others hold that he sim
ply tired, of idle luxury and therefor
sought hardship. The contral thought
seems, however, to be a distinction be
tween a worldly and a divine and ex
Before Wagner's day the place of
words in operas was unimportant and
alt stress was laid on the music, but in
Tannhauser Wagner worked for the
hurmony of poetry, music and picture,
which Prof, Grlmann thinks is the se
cret of his success as a composer.

Once upon a time they chained Prometheus to a mountain. Thus
will we chain tho first Freshman who we catch wearing a class cap.
We will chain him to the big rock and the English sparrows will ever
feed upon his liver and build nests in his noggin.

"Dudo" Hammll brought his 'colts"
up to the 'Varsity diamond on last
Saturday afternoon to try conclusions
with tho Unl. ball tossors. Tho town
team played good bail and showed a
great improvement over their previous
game with the 'Varsity, but Bender
had his men In fine trim and again, the
score como tho right way, 8-3.
Tho a f tor noon was windy, but this
did not hinder the game at all for
both teams played with a determina
tion to win.
Tho local baseball field was kept
busy last Saturday morning by Inter
frnternity games. Tho first game be
gan at 9 o'clock when the Alpha Taus
and Koppa Slgs crossed bats. For
seven innings the ball was knocked
all over the lot and at times tho men
got"hold of the ball long enough to put
one of the men out. At tho end of
the seventh inning tho score stood . .
to 8 In favor of the Alpha Taus.
At 11 o'clock the Phi Psis and Delta
Taus began an engagement, which on
account of the lateness of the hour
and a strong desire for the full dinner
pail, wus only five Innings In length.
The game seemed to be all In favor of
tho Delta Taus as the score indicates,
It to 2 In their favor.

With the Debaters.
Preparations are almost complete for
the lnter-colleglate debates, which oc
cur next Friday and Tuesday evenings
In Memorial Hall. Onr forensic war
riors are nrmed with the tons of evi-
dtnee that has characterized them, In
their past victorious battles. Our op
ponents are perhaps more formidable
ones than we have over bel'oro met.
Iowa belongffTerthe "big nine" in the
debating world and has made on en
viable "reputation in contests with
Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin and
other strong universities of the mid
dlo west. While Washington suffered
defeat aLtheJiands of our debaters
lnet year, the defeat, she declare3
taught her a lessoff nnd as a result of
the recent Introduction of the "Ne
braska System" In that University, wo
may well expect a very strong fight.
Both debates will be on our own soil.
At. in athletics, so in debating, our rep
sentatlves are stimulated to do their
best, when loyally supported by the
student body, and, our debaters, will
be better fitted to maintain tho pres
tige Nebraska has achieved In the
debating world, if they are shown by
the attendance at the debate that tho
students are backing them In their
efforts to carry off tho honors.
