The ganie wns a return niatcb, the
first contest having taken place last
week at University Place, resulting, in
u defeat for our men by a score of 2G
to 25. On account of this victory the
Wesleyan athletes were somewhat con
fident of turning the trick on our own
- door, and a largo crowd of enthusias
tic rooters, armed with pennants,
canes and megaphones, accompanied
the team. Comparatively few Nebras
ka sympathizers were present.'

has been troubled with a bad knee, in

line-up once more and made his pres

as he had a chance. The visitors were
handicapped by the size of the floor,
being accustomed to one much small
er, and consequently were unable to
make the long passes our own men
used. They were fast players, how
ever, and kept the ball nrotmri the
Nebraska goal most of the time. Only

Prof. H. W. Caldwell discussed "The
Presidents Message" at convocation
yesterday. He said in part:
"The president's anuual message to
congress may.be compared with the
king's opening speech to parliament.
The custom no do.um Is of English
origin. It Is Interesting" to note that
In 1789 George Washington's message
to congress and tho speech of George
III to parliament were so much alike
that they may be said to be as similar
as two peas. Providing the peas camo
from different pods and different va
rieties." Professqr Caldwell next spoke of the
message as- being a connection be
tween the executive and legislative de
partments, a band of unity which Is
greatly needed. The averuge presi
dent, he said, uses it to summarize
the events of preceding years, but a
few stronger executives use it as an
appeal. Most of the annual messages
to congress are narrative. President
Roosevelt's Is purely argumentative.
Washington's first message contained
13,000 words. 'Sinco that timo many
of tho messagea reached 20,000 words.

The Senior Prom.
Tho dates set for tlio Junior and
Senior Promenades as February flth
ami 1Ct.li, respectively, seem to havo
been merely tentative dates. Tho
Juniors wore unable to securo somo of
tho neccssltlefrfor their Prom If It was
held on tho 0th, consequently If tho
Senior- dato held, thoy must place
theirs for February 23rd. Tills would
make the Junior Prom follow tho
Senior, something that has never hap
pened in tho University. Flat tho
Seniors camo to the aid of tho Juniors
nnd granted a favor to tho latter com
mlttoo which Is surely worthy of much
commendation, and the Juniors' fully
appreciate tho .same. This was tho
giving or Februnry lGth, tho Senior
date, to tho Juniors for their 1'roni.
In doing this It was necessary to place
tho time for the Sonlor Prom the latest
In the season that It has over beun
held. Tho dato Is Friday night, April
20th, this date is immediately follow
ing the close of Lent.
Tho granting of thin favor by tup
Senior committee Is worthy of enough
recognition by tho students to glvo
tho Prom royal support. Tho Juniors
havo promised their support to tho
Seniors in appreciation of what lias
been done, and it Js quite likely all
other classes will follow. The dates
for tho two Proms as 'thoy now stund
aro as follows: Junior, February Kith,

SOPHS WIN OUT
DEFEAT THE JUNIORS IN AN EX
Cook Runs Length of the Field for the
Lone Touihdown Juniors Put
Up a Game Fight. .
Before one of tho' lurgost crowdH
that ever saw .an- intorcluss football
game, the sophomores wdn the' class
championship yesterday afternoon by
a score of 0 to 0. Tho gamo was hotly
contested from beginning to end, nnd
throughout both halves the juniors
fairly out-played their opponents. Tho
llrM half ended without u score on
either side, shortly after tho sophs
held for downs on their own ton-yard
lino. After about ten minutes of play
.In -the second half, tho sophomores
forced the Juniors to punt from thu
center of tho field. Wilko sent d low;
drlvo tb Cook on tho ttllFyard 'line, and
boforo tho Junior ends could got. down
under the punt, the sophomore had thu
ball tucked under his arm and wuh
touring down tho flub for a touchdown,
running tho entire distance along tho
side lines. Several Juniors got near
enough to have jumped at htm and
forced him out of bounds, but pre
ferred to wait for a chance to make a
safo tackle. Howard then kicked goal,
The juniors then choso tho kick-off,
hold the sophorilores at onco and
forced TTTem to kick, then started Tor
tho goal with a vengeanco. Tho aopho
mores hold them onco, but tho JuiiTom
got the ball right buck on u kick, and
tho march for tho lino continued with,
hardly an interruption. The galmi Imj
came shorter nud shorter, however
and finally the juniors raiiou to ihuko
tho required five yards juul lost tho
ball on tho five-yard .line. The nopho-
mores made ono inoffcctuul attempt at
the lino, and were forced to punt. Be
fore the juniors could make more tlilm
