inomber of the Cornhusker party
tb,e.re to be received was Clement L.
Waldran, who, in Professor Fogg's,
place, accompanied the team.
Mr. Waldron speaks very highly of
the cordial treatment the team re
ceived at Wisconsin. Ho says the
badgers declared Mlt was the warmest
debate they'd seen in years."
The debate was won by Wisconsin,
WaWron says,vby superior delivery.
Although they liad thresnod the ques

three months masterejl the subject as
thoroughly as had the Badgers, If not
more so. In rebuttal Nebraska was
superior, in Waldron's opinion. Wis
consln's caBe was In finely polished,
sot form, whereas the' Nebraska team
didn't get ltB case drawn together
finally until the morning of the debate.
"To our certain knowledge there
has not been so Interesting a contest
held here In many years," Is the ver
dict of Wisconsin, as voiced in Tho
Dally Cardinal, on tho debate with
"Nebraska. Tho University of Nebras
ka, up to Friday eevnlng, had succeed
ed In winning nine successive debates,
and Wisconsin haB good reason to
glory in tho fact that It was able to
win" from so powerful a debating foe.
"Nebraska, by this contest, has-suc-ceeded
in breaking Into the Big Four,
and wo hope that wo may be able to
meet them In a contest 'in tlys future
with a 'team aa-worthy of our stoolus
the one which fought us so well last
evening." The Cardinal In its news
column states that tho debate was
"one of tho warmest over witnessed

DR. LOWRY ON 8TEPHEN PHILIP8.
Fourth Number of he "Modern Drama
tists" Series Given at Convocation.
Boforo ono of tho smallest audiences
In tho hlBtory of University convoca
tions, Dr. Lowry delivered tho fourth
lecture of the "Modern Dramatists"
series on Stephen Philipps at convo
cation yestorday. While not exactly
of a popular nature, Dr. Lowry's sub
ject was one which morltod much
greater attention from tho students of
this institution than it received.
Stephen Philipps, said Dr. Lowry, Is
ono of the very few successful modern
blank verso poets. Ho Is lauded in
press reviews, in literary magazines
and by the foremost literary critics as
being a poet of high quality, ranking
Ux many respects with Byron, Milton,
Keats and Wordsworth.
As a dramatist, however, Dr. Lowry
very frankly branded Mr. Philipps a
failure. HIb plays, although good in
spots, have never proved' successful
with the public, oven his lateajLnnd In
some respects best pleco,Nero," hav
ing failed when submitted to that cri
terion. This is explained In a number Qf
ways. In the first place, Mr. Philipps'
plays are classical both in material
and Inspiration, Hence, they appeal
but slightly to tho modern audience,
whoso tastes havojjeon greatly evolu
tionized since tho days of Nero and
his Grecian neighbors. Another reason
for tho failure of bis plays is tho fact
that they are not constructed accord
ing to tho laws of dramatic art. They
allow too much time to elapse between
the climax and denouement, and, most
fatally of all, contain practically no
manifestation of will-power, the funda
mental principle of all tragedy.
The next lecture of the series will
bo given by -Mr. Ford on Arthur Wing
