Fish. In J 8treet Fountain
At ten o'clock yesterday morning
crowds of Sophomores and Innocent
spectators began to congregate In the
vicinity or Memorial Hall, where the
Freshman Class was scheduled to hold
Us first meeting. Chancellor Andrews,
ten janitors, the chief of police, the
city jailer and JohnUhl were also
The Freshmen were allowed, to en
ter the hall unmolested, while thq
Sophomores held their meeting in the
Chemistry Lecture Room.
As soon as the Sophs had selected
their president they marched over to
Memorial Hall, but were dissuaded
, from starting anything by tho Chan
cellor, John Uhl and a number of Jam
tors. Tiring of the lack of excitement and
Incited by the big crowd of onlookers,
a-number of Sophomores and Seniors
seized a prominent Junior and started
tq. rush him off to the northeast gate
of the campus. In the scrimmage the
Junior fainted and was carried, homo
In a hack. Smith, a Sophomore, who
was mixing in tho fracas, received a
blow In the jaw which necessitated his
being carried home.
1 v At tho close of, the Freshman meet
ing, Heskett, the president-elect, made
p. dask for his recitation room in Uni
versity Hall, but was caught ere ho
had moved many steps. Harry Swan,
and George Wallace put in strenuous
efforts, to rescue him, but the Sopho
mores were in force and Heskett was
marched across the football field to
Tenth street, where a grocery wagonj
was pressed into service. Heskett was
placed aboard under the guard of Har
rison, Dobbs, Bennisdn, Drake and
several other stalwart Sophs. The
Freshmen made a futile attempt to
unharness the horse, Then the wagon,
'followed, by a howling throng of Sophs,
was driven down to, O street,, and
thence on Twelfth and .Eleventh to J J
street; where Heskett and. four otheYs
wore tosse'd, gently-but. firmly into tho
biK fountain pool, and enjoyed tho
luxury of a bath at the city's expense.
The Sophs marched back to tlio
campus in triumph, the air echoing
with, their ells. About the big rock
they assembled in a pow-wow, and rati
fied Mr. Heskett's election to tho
Freshman' presidency. The Sopho
more president was; crowned with tho
noble diadem -a Sophomore cap and
tlie meeting adjourned sine die.

New Football Songs.
1. Tune: "Why Don't You Try?"..
IDo you think you'd play us better
If you thought we might boat you?
Do you think you would be angry
If we won a game or two?
Do you think you'd learn to beat us
In the sweet, sweet bye-and-bye?
If you think that you could learn to
Why don't you try, why don't you
II. Tune: "Same Old Moon."
It's just the same old team a-playing
In just tho samo old plucky way.
No wonder Ames Is pale and saying,
"We've lost our game today."
For that's the way thoyVo always feel
When Nobrnska starts to play.
Same good old colors, sca'rlet
Samo good old Unl, samo old team.

Game Characterized by Dirty Play
Nebraska Crippled Drake
- Team Heavy. - .
Nebraska 5, Drake 0.
-Last Saturday, again, Nebraska mot
with an. unexpectedly stiff proposition
and again, after a hard Struggle, her
team pulled out-tho victory by a nar
row margin. Outweighed ton pounds
to the man and handicapped by in
juries, the team put up a most plucky
and creditable game.
Thruout tho first half honors worV
practically oven, neither sidcTscorlng.
At tho beginning of the second half
Nebraska took a brace and tore up,
the Drake defense, scoring In tho first
few minutes of play. Aftor this tho,.
ball traveled back and forth, boTii'
sides punting frequently, but no ' fur
ther scoring Was done.
Tho Drake team was heavy and
fairly fast, th0lr lino mon charged
well and gavo their Cornhusker op
ponents plenty to do to hold their
own. Their quarter-back and right
half, Taylor hndL&yerln, did good
Work In carrying the ball and were
In large part responsible for Drake's
While tho work of the Nebraska
team stilLaliowed many Haws, it w'nstt
very manifest improvement on that
of a week ago. The most encouraging
feature was the way that, at least"
twice, tho tbrim got togofchor and tore
thru all opposition as tlio nothing could1
stop it. 1 Flashos of " play like thlB;
show what the team Is capablo of and
what we may expect when it reaches
its full development, and that It has
the real fighting spirit that will be
stopped by nothing regardless ofodds.
Tho forward pass was'nof usod by
either team and with tho exception
that more end runs were tried and
that both teams woro forced to punt
frequently, tho game resemblod very
much the old style football.
Coach RlsTTne of Ames.wJtnes8od ,

At 3:40 p. J)i., Little Kicked off to
Evans on the 10 yard line. JEyans re-,

by a series of lino plungps, made tho
