The varsity basket-ball team . has
Tjeen exceedingly successful during Its.

rto the Chicago Central V. M. O. A.
.and Kansas. Tho Chicago game was
-very .cldse, tho narrow margin of ono
point being to the Easterners' credit
Tho Kansas game was a glorious vic
tory, for tho visitors, being the first
.-contest after tho. resumption of ath
letic relations, tho Jayhawkers felt
quite elated. But the bestpf -feeling,

BACK FROM SOUTH
DELEQATE8 RETURN FROM THE
Report One of the Most Successful
Meetings In the History of the
Student Volunteer Movement
Tho enthusiastic aggregation of
twonty-two Nebraska studonts ro
lurnbd from Nashville a fow days ago,
where they represented tho Unlvoraity
at the Fifth International Convention
of tho Studont Volunteer Movemont
Approximately 3,500 ropresontatlvo
students from 700 institutions of high
or learning woro present,' togothor with
about 700 official representatives and
fraternal delegates from tho United
States, Canada, England, European
countries and from tho nations of tho
Orient. Press notices all over the
country spoke of tho Nashville con
vpntlon as ono of tho most unique nnd
inspiring cdnveniions in tho history .
of tho world.
Tho Nebraska delegation will give a ,
report of the convention on next Sun
day evening at 7:30 in Momorial Hall.
AH University, men and women should
bo familiar with tho great movemont
which has so wonderfully appealed to
tho students of North America. Tho
sorvlco next Sunday will bo conducted
on the plan of a regular convention
meeting. It will begin sharply at 7:30
p. m. All students, both- men and
The convention was-open on Wod
neBday afternoon with Mr John R.
Mott In tho chair and from the open
ing to the closing session there was no
time when tho largQ auditorium, with
.a seating capacity of over 5,000, was
not crowded to tho doors. Mr. Mott,
tho chairman of tho BxocuUvo Commit
tee and- Mr. Robert E. Spoor of tho
Presbyterian Missionary Board, woro
itiie favorites of tho convention. It is
doubtful If horo can bo found in this
country two men who have such a hold
on tho student life of tho United States
as do these two men. Mr. Speer was
center on tho Princeton football team
during his college career nd in those
days was recognized as ono of tho best
football, met in tho country. Mr. Geo.
P, Manly, a Cambridge senior wran-
gler, represented tho Student Volun
teer Union of Great Britain Mr. Karl
Fries, a similar representative from
tho Scandinavlancountries, and Mr. t
Gunther. frbm Germanyr Some of the
most prominent leaders In the various
churches of the United States were
present and gave addresses such as
have perhaps never been heard from
the same platform in so short a.porlod.
