causp of a dispute over 'the rules, in
which Nebraska had to give way, tho
teams did not appear on the lloor until
nearly nine o'clock.
The game started at 9: 05, Mosor

first ten seconds of play, but not be

fouls followed, neither side scoring on

on two of them. Score, Nebraska 2,
Kansas 2. In the next play Walsh
scored the second field goal for Ne
braska and a minute later Moser

of the evening. Two more soon fol

here Kansas scored twice on tries for
goal from fouls, raising her total score
The game thruout and at this period
especially was characterized by the
valiant guarding of Dwight Bell. He
stopped several long passes and always
made things so warm for his opponent
that the latter was unable to get the
ball away successfully at all. Kansas
was unable to show any offensive
work wortfiy of the name, not making
a blngle field goal during the half.
Moser and Walsh threw several more

pretty playing, Mosor and Walsh being
the stars. However, the Jayhawkers
were guarding bettor this half nnd It
became harder for Nebraska to score.

Cornhuskers ran up the score to 28,

New Honorary Secret Political Society
A new secret society lias been
formed In the Sophomore class to con
sist of thirty "barbs" and three frnt
men. The members of the new society
say that It Is organized purely for so
cial purposes and to purify the ltloals
of the class, howover Its opponents
insist that its object Is political.
The organization is strictly honorary
as Its excluBivencBs Indicates and It Is
said to contain the cream of the class.
Membership In the society will probab
ly prove the most coveted of honors.
As Is the custom with similar organi
zations, the Wooden Sphinx will hold
Its first lnltation this evening at Rob
bers' Cave south of the city. Each of
the members will be dropped thru an
aperture In tJ.e roof of the cavern and
amused and instructed by other edify
It is the hope of all within tho mystic
charmed circle that none of the vulgar
rabble will be so Inconsiderate as to
bring their profane optics to the scene
of the lnltation. Such an intrusion will
be regurded as "rank and contempti
ble by tho members.
Itt Is rumored that the Wooden
Sphinx Is solidly supporting S. P.
Dobbs for tho presidency of the class
and as Dobbs has not yet denied the
charge it is likely to stand against him.

of the planting operations in the Pike's
Peak Forest Reserve and of the kind
of timber that flourishes in the moun

relation of various trees to various
altitudes, and showed how, as vegeta

species of pine crowd out the weakor.

Mr. Herbert G. Myers, odltor-ln-clilef
of tho CornhiiBker, was Interviewed by

terday and discoursed on the coming
book as follows:
"Tho book, will be the 'best over,' "
said Mr. MyerB In beginning. "It will
be a small revolution in itself, for our
publication will be so mOch better than
any annual ever put out at this insti
tution that there will bo no comparing
It with the books that have gone he
