Men Are Practicing Hard for Football
Game on Saturday.
Football spirit, the genuine old-fashioned
kind that characterized the
Booth style of playing, Is in the air
this spring and the men that got out
In spite of the warm weather seem to
bo filled to the muzzle with it. Ono
would hardly expect these warm,
balmy days to be conducive to foot
ball activity, for It's a proposition
worthy of attention to exist In the
shade. But the heat element doesn't
seem to enter at all, for the men get
under the plays, go down the field, and
"boot" tin- pigskin with as much en
ergy as If the cool Novomber breezes
were bloving. Everybody gets Into
the game and Is playing hard ball, as
If evory tacklo or punt-meant a repu
tation and It was the last thing he ex
pected to do in the last game of his
last season. And that's the kind of
work that is going to drag Doano's
colprs Into i he dust next Saturday, tho
But where are tho rooters? Has the
spring fever swelled their pipes or has
a piicclpltatlon of migratory real estate
clogged up his vocal organs? -Bring,
forth thy llugelhorns and megaphones,
rehearse those Inspiring lines that so
nobly stirred thy former gridiron idols
on to victory, oh ye faithful ones, lest
the heathen hordes beyond tho river
dash down upon thee with all tho
ferocity of a band of Huns and catch
thee napping unawares!
Surely' we miss the "old faithfuls"
and would like to find Borg at centre,
Bender at quarter, Benedict at end
and Hunter at tackle, but "men must
come and men must go, while 'foot
ball' goes on forever." -And all tho
"good Indians are not dead-Indians,"
for Cotton, Mason, Rico and Taylor
are still with us 'and some Lincoln
High School material like Branspn,
Hlldobrand and Bowers are going to
help fill tho gap. Besides this there Is"

BARBS TO MEET THI8 MORNING
TO NOMINATE CANDIDATES.
Plan for a Hard Campaign Claim
They Are to Use the 8ame Propo
sition as Used Tvyo Years Ago.
Tho Associated Barbs will -moot this
morning at 11 in Memorial Hall to
nominato a non-fraternity tlckot for
tho Athletic Board. In tho last fow.
years tho contest for places as student
membors of tho Athletic Board has
narrowed down to a barb-frat "scrap."
Each faction puts up a tlckot of flvo
mon. Tho flvo men nominated and
supported by tho non-7ratornity de
ment of tho University aro nominated
at a meeting of tho Associated Barbs,
at which all non-fratornity mon in tho
University aro eligible to vote. A
heated campaign Is carried on from tho
date of the nomination of candidates
until the day of election.
Tho non-fratornlty people will flro
tho first gun in this campaign this
morning by the nomination of their
candidates. Nino men will bo nomi
nated at tho meeting this morning,
from Which flvo will bo chosen by bal
lot. Tho nine mon whom it is oxpoct
od vflll be nominated aro:
J. M. Swenson, W. M. Whelan, E". D.
Crltes, W. E. Ponrod, J. C. Knodo, M.
E. Cornelius, B. E. Yoder, E. H. Wil-
llsford and J. W. Rice. Other aspirants
for tho nomination may appear before
the meeting is held this morning and
swell this number, but it is known that
at least tho above will bo voted upon..
It is assorted by leading barbs that.
contrary to the action of last year, a -..
largo "slush" fund will bo put -up.
They say that experience seems to
prove that such a fund is necessary
and that they feel compelled to put it
up for that reason. It Is probable that
a finance committee will bo appointed
this morning to begin collecting funds?
Tho barbs claim that they went into
tho campaign last year on a question
of principlo and that the studonts did
not seem to want such a campaign, at
least they did not vote, tho barb ticket
and that thoy aro going to try tho
other method again this year .as they
did two years ago. t . ,
Prof. Jones at Convocation.

creditable and appreciative audience,

interesting lecture on "Recent English
Aftor describing briefly the English
oloctorlal system, Prof. Jones gaye a.

cent election and what they indicate.
For many years tho English govern
ment has been undergoing a series of

reason that. Its recent election Is at

throughout the world.
