The game started at 9: 05, Mosor scoring a goa for Nebraska in the first ten seconds of play, but not be fore the Kansas centor was put tem porarily "hors de combat" by a severe blow , on the npse, received In the Initial melee.

Nebraska made three or four more fouls and Kansas scored 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 threw another, the ball being taken up the field In one of the prettiest plays of the evening. Two more soon fol lowed, making the score 10 to 2, but here Kansas scored twice on tries for goal from fouls, raising her total score to 1. 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 for Nebi aska before the gong sounded. the half ending with a score of 18 to 5 in favor of Nebraska. The second half began with another foul by Nebraska, Kansas scoring on the throw Following this, Kansas committed a series of fouls, Nebraska scorlnK on one of them PnrnluiHkni'R irnvu an exhibition of pretty playing, Mosor and Walsh being the stars. However, the Jayhawkers were guarding bettor this half nnd It became harder for Nebraska to score. Indedd, Kansas got Into the offensive game herself at this point and at last scored a field goal. Nebraska 20, Kan sas 8. In the next few minutes .the Cornhuskers ran up the score to 28, Kansas in the meantime getting an other field goal and two free throws, making 12 in all for her. In the last few minutes of play Kansas got Into tho game with a vengeance, making three more field goals and getting another free throw, making their total number of points for the second half the same as Nebraska's, 14-14. The game closed a-moment later, tho final score being 32 to 19. (Continued on Page 3) New Honorary Secret Political Society Exposed. 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 ing stunts. 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. THE CORNHUSKER NEW ANNUAL WILL SOON BE READY FOR THE PRE88.

The class was glVon'tuT'dea: of the planting operations in the Pike's Peak Forest Reserve and of the kind of timber that flourishes in the moun tains. The Bpoaker also dwelt on the relation of various trees to various altitudes, and showed how, as vegeta tion npprochds timber lino, the hardier species of pine crowd out the weakor. The talk was largely Impromptu, but showed the sp'eaker to bo a thoro mas tor of his subject, and a man with a broad .experience in forest reserve work. C.

Myers, odltor-ln-clilef of tho CornhiiBker, was Interviewed by n representative of the Nebraskan yes 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 fore.

In short, our book will cost more, look better, have better material, nnd bo better than any'other book that tho students at this great school have published." Jtfanager A. E.
