TThc faculty clrcuB is a thing of the
pdfct and great are the feelings of
thinks and gratitude that went up
from many a professors heart, yester
day, at sundown, to think that ho had
survived the day; had not been
tramped on by the fearless riders;,
had not been killed by the savage In
dians; had not been scared to death
by tho Senior football warriors, or
had not'lost llfo or limb in the, per-
forhianco of his special stunt. Con
sidering the appalling dangers Into
which ho was at! times compelled to
rilah heedlessly much sympathy is ex
tended to the prof, who, after the
thing was all over with, said he felt
as,, wonderfully relieved as if he had
thrown up an alligator.
Shortly after the appointed time, the
University band, led by Bummy Booth
paraded over tho grounds. Bummy
gaVe them all kinds of football slgi
nils but tho band played on. Close
on their trait followed the Faculty
band "of several pieces headed by that
peerless leader, Prof. Ross. Just what
kinds of instruments they playe'd Is
not known. The like of them has
noVor heon .seen or heard in-musical
circles before and probably never
will be again. But the audience' 'en
Joyed seeing and heading tho band
nevertheless. Some people .even boasted-of
having recognized thONyafious
ail's tho band played and these wro
almost wild in demonstrating their
appreciation of tho performance. After
they had left tho field they were given
a place of honor in tho grand, stand
arid Sweezey, one of tho .prominent
players, treated his fellow brothers In
.misery with peanuts.
A largo portion of the time yas
taken tip by the cavalry cavalcade.
Abput thirty 'trained saddle horses and
a couplo of untrained burros made tho
spectators eyes water and heads swim
from tho tlmo they put in their ap
poarance until they left the field. This
pari of the performance was under the
chargo-of Captain Wo.rkizer and much
credit is duo him and Prof. Taylor for
putting in trim a herd Qf untamed
horses In so short' a time.
Captain Wbrkizer and Prof. Taylor
afterwards gave individual exhibitions
with; their horses;" Tho captain" per

While tho horses were yet circling
back and forth in the ring tho smoke
of tho .pioneer's camp fire was seen in
tho distance rising to tho sky Away
off. to-tho south could be had glimpses
of savagd Indians with paint on their
faces and eagle feathers iq their hair.
Thole very actions indicated that they

.thoughts in their hearts. As they
drew nearer, the crowd was able to

AdOPT8 RESOLUTION. TO FIX
OFFICIAL DESIGN FOR UN .f
PLAY PRACTICE GAME.

Harvey Injured on Account of
Hard and Uneven Field.
The varsity and scrubs played a
practice game on the athletic field laat
ovening at tho close of tho Faculty
foolishness program. The varsity was
composed of the subs nearly altogeth
er. The game consisted of one short
half of hard playing.
The varsity did not play on last
evening with tho snap they generally
do whop the old veterans are in the
line-up. Neither Cotton nor Wilson
were, on the field last night in their
football toga. Borg was on the .side
lines coaching tho scrubs, while West
over Was coaching the varsity in its
style of play. t Benedict, who was at
the end position on the varsity, made
some good runs and did some good
One of the regrctable features of the
game was the injury of Harvey on tho
scrubB. At first It was .thought that
his arm was broken, but upon medical
examination it was found thayt tho
ligaments, were torn. This accident
was due probably to the vory poor con-
' ... ... m v. -
dltlon. 01 tneMieip. An aiiernoon ot
horse-racing ami parading; made It
vory hard and uneven. The original
condition was surely bad enough, but
after yesterday's performance tho field
was unfit for football practice.
The number of men to be taken to
Omaha has not been decided upon, but
It is quite likely that a laVgQ num
ber will be taken. Booth wishes: to
strengthen his guard positions before
tho game with Minnesota.
Tho regular musical program will
take up tho convocation hour this
morning. Following is the. program:

Board O. D. Hetzel, Walter Walsh,
A large number of students have
arranged to go to Omaha on Saturday
to- aeo the Crelghton-Nebraska game.
The rate of one dollar and ten cents

Saturday by as large a crowd as over
went away from Lincoln to a football
game, with tho oxceptlon of the Min
nesota game a few years ago.
Manager Morrison has arranged for
ttic convenience of the.' students to put
the tickets on sale In the Nebraskan
office this morning at ' Convocation
period. All those who have .not as
yet purchased .tickets should embrace
this , opportunity arid secure tickets.
The duty of- every loyal Nebraska stu-
dent Is to go to Qmaha arid give 'the
team your.ttupyon vocauy.
