Important Political Event to Take
Place This Morning.
The Seniors meet this morning at
11 o'clock in Memorial Hall to elect
officers for the coming semestor.
TJiecampalgn carried on by tho
supporters of the soveral candidates
has been exceedingly .lively. Notwith
standing this' fact, it has been a clean
cut fight, devoid of tho usual political
Arrangements,' tho. promised distribu
tion of political plums which have
characterized practically all Univer
sity class elections in tho past It can
Imi stated without fonr of contradic
tion that the majority of tho candi
dates for whom tho members of the
class will ballot this morning have as
their platfornTofllclency and efficiency
ulono. Practically all tho candidates
unequivocally opposo machine ar
rangements of every kind.
For the past three years the present
Sonior class has.' beon .'tho -reenter of
most blttor and intonso political riv
alry. Tho class has been divided be
twoon two political factions. In Una
election all old .political fences ap
pear to havo been broken down. Tho
leadors of tho class, with scarcely an
oxcoptlon now seem to be united on
the proposition that no political en
tanglements and alliances should be
entered into, and that candidates
.should receive Uiolr support solely on
tho basis of merit. Fraternity and
non-fraternity linos are not a political
factor of importance.
It now looks as if the question of
admitting the Senior Laws would be
settled by allowing tho logal poll ti
tans to vote on tho academic class
duco and assessments.
The candidates for class president
are: 'McWUUams, PltchTord, and
Freshman Politics.
It Is rumored that the Freshman
class will hold Its first meeting and
elect offlcors -the-lntter part of this
week. It is rogarded as lmprobuble
that tho "Freshles" will meet with
any Interference from upper class
men. The candidates for President, so far
as known, are Lefler of South Omaha,,
and McDonald, of York. McDonald Is
said to b;nvir-tho support of, Omaha,
York and some Lincoln members .qf.
tho class while Lefler's support comes
mainly from over tho state.
Weaver, tho BeHlYrcTTTIebater, who
Is considered by many to bo a likely
candidate for- Presla:ent, is being
pushed by his friends for the Vice
Presidency and for this 'office he ap
pears to have a clear field.

Compares Gettysburg and Sodowa
Tells Significance of Each.
Chancellor Andrews compared tho
two battles of Gettysburg (July 21,
1803) and Sadowa (July 3 18GG) at
Convocation yesterday morning. At
Gettysburg tho Confederates were the
attacking party, ,On tho first day tho
Fodorals wero worsted; tho second
day was a drawn battlo; tlio third day
brought victory to the Fcdorals
Among his soveral polnUt of compari
son tho Chancellor mentioned the
similar formation of battlo line that
of a flsh-hdok. Tho Austrian troops,
about two hundred thousand in num
ber, stationed on tho inner lino were
plttod against the Prussians, who had
about an equal forte, and occupied tho
holghts on tho outer aide.
Most important of all wore tho re.
suits of theso decisive battles, which
determined the courses of human civ
ilization. Gettysburg nhd Vicksburg
were both Important. Vicksburg,
however, was bound to fall; yet if
Gettysburg had not also fallon, tho
Confederacy might havo beon power
ful. Austria had been In paramount
power In Europe, with Prussia sec
ond; but after Sadowa, Prussia
forged to the front, and becamo the
dominant nation. Later, In tho Franco-Prussian
war, she also gained the
ascendancy over Franco.
. Among the dissimilarities was the
use of cavalry. Tho Prussians and
Austrians utilized thelrB well, but at
Gettysburg neither sldo made use of
that branch of the army. General Lee
made the great mlstake-of sending off
I he cavalry Just before tho battlo. His
eminent cavalry force, with ''job"
Stuart, an ablo commander, was the,
very eye of tfie army. There was
great loss on the Confederate .side be
cause they wore working at cross-
purposes. On the third day General.
Leo had tho wholo Army of tho Po
tomac In Tront of him. The long fish
hook loBt at Gettysburg but won at
Tho AuBtrlons-had two lnmdrotV and
'fifty pieces of the best artillery, while
Prussia had only 'forty-two or forty
four pieces, yet Prussia held, her po-
fsltlon. The tactics of yon Moltko wero
superior to those of Bonedek, and tho
latter was beaton and forced to re
treat. Tho victory to the Union sol
dlors at Gettysburg made the United
States opo republic. The Prussian
victory at Sadowa (tho greatest fight
ing day since Waterloo)" made Prus
sla one of tfie leading powers of Eu

New Rules in Evidence Forward Pass
Works Fairly Well An In
teresting Game.
Tho new order of thlngB In football
began most auspiciously at Nebraska
last Saturday aftornoon. Tho opon
lng gamo of tho season waa satisfac
tory, whothor regardod from tho
standpoint of coach, player, or specta
tor. Indood, it is Bafo to say that
not for years havo Nebraska rooters
witnessed so pretty and so spoctacuinr
an exhibition of football at tho open
ing of tho season.
Tho Cornhuskers lltorally swamped
their opponents .piling up 5G points to
Hastings' nono in two twenty ralnuto
halves. Tho work: of tho team, both
individually and collect! voly was most
gratifying and tho Intorforonco nnd
long runs wero brilliant and spectacu
lar to a high degree.
At no time may Hastings bo said to
havo boon in tho game, save for tho
first few minutes when frequent fum
bios on forward passes onablod. them
to gain possession of tho ball often
enough to prevent a scoro. But there
after the gamo was ono continuous
procession towards their goal lino.
Coach Foster's now plays worked
admirably, liotlJng long and froquont
gains for Nebraska. Once, at least,
his toain showed that It could scoro
by tho old line-smashing football, go
ing straight down the fleld for a
touchdown by plays directed" at nnt"
just outsldo of tackle, -
On tho wholo, tho now rules scorned
to W6rkv6ry satisfactorily and tho
general impression eemed to bo that
in some particulars, at least, football
had beon improved. There wns moro
spectacular playing and less of tho old
monotonous plunging at tho lino, and
.tho weaker team seemod to have a
bettor chanco to get into tho game
and make things Interesting for its
stronger opponent. The forward paBS
introduced a new element into the
gamo -which addod to Its interest, both
from its "Uncertainty and tho brilliancy
of Iho resulting plays tyheh worked
successfully. But perhaps tho most
gratifying impression of the change
in the gamo was that, to some extent
at loast, it put moro of a .premium
on .speed, agility and brains, and less
on weight and brutef force. However!
any final expressidirbf .opinion on tlio"
now rules is stlirpremature, for until
two evenly matched teams, well drilled
in all departments of football, come
together, it is impossible to determine
fully just how the game has been
Tho game'thruout was clean and
sportsmanlike and the conduct of the
Nebraska men reflocted gratifylngly
tho decided stand of Coach Foster
against dirty football.
The Game in Detail.
"Pip" Cook kicked off at 3:40 nntT
Hastlngs returned to hor 25-yard lino
before being downed. Nebraska held
for down on the 45-yard line and
tried the. forward pass for a gain of
15 yards. 'A fumble gave Hastings the
ball on hor 5-yard line and she re
turned it to her 25-yard line and punt
