In two of the faBtest and moat Inter
esting basket-ball games ever played
In Minneapolis, Nebraska was defeat
ed by Minnesota Friday and Saturday
evenings by one point in the first con
test and by two points In the second
Nebraska sprung .a great surprise
on the Gophers. In both games the
Gornhuskers fairly swept the Minne
sota players off their feet and left them
stranded for part of the contests. But
In the second half of each game the
Nebraska boys weakened and allowed
their opponents to score enough points
Commenting on the first game, the
Minneapolis Journal says:
"Never hasa more Interesting game
been playe.d at the university. Min
nesota has been defeated only twice
on her homo floor and that was In
the two games with Nebraska two
years ago. Last night It began to
look- like a repetition of .that event,
except that the game was so much
faster and harder fought, and fee
from wrangling which in past seasons
has marred the games with Nebraska,
that It was a pleasure to wltncssdt'
In the first half of the second game
Nebraska started the ball rolling with
some of the fastest basket-ball possi
ble and threw four baskets In quick
succession, scoring eight points. This
half closed with the Cornhuskers ten
points In the lead, the score being 13
The Gophers took a sprint In the sec
ond half and rolled up enough points
to make their score 20, while the Ne
braska players made only five points.
Fouling was frequent and serious on
both sides during the second game.
Walsh threw ten gaskets out of twelve
fre,e throws. The Bell brothers and
Walsh were fast and carried off the
honors' for Nebraska.
The Cornhuskers played Hudson
Military Academy last night and they
play Marshfleld, Wisconsin, tonight.

About a hundred students heard
Rev. A. W. Halsey in U 108 yesterday

points by rolatlng his experiences ond
obBeryatlons among the natives of the
Congo Fieo State, where he has spent
some time visiting foreign missions
and where ho consequently came in
contact with some of the very lowest
types of the human race.
Rev. Halsey held a number of per
sonal Interviews yesterday afternoon
with many, of tho young people here
who are Interested In mission work.
In the evening he spoke before tho
Volenteer Band after which ho de
parted for Omaha where he Is to ap
pear before the Missionary Convention.
Mr. Halsey Is pno of the secretaries
of the Presbyterian Board of For
. Yesterday morning the Junior Prom

Mr. Harrison. Where the poster has
been is. not known, but the owner feels
grateful for Its return. It gives one ah
Impulse toward an optimistic view of
University llfo to havo a thing Jlke'
that happen; If shows that somebody
Is moi'e nenrly square than at first ap

Writes on "The Decay of Academic
Courage and Suchlike" The Col

Undor this heading Prof. Janies II.
Canflold, In tho January Educational
Rovlow, writes In dofonao of college
presidents, roplylng to tho chargo that
they havo assumod autocratic and dic
tatorial powors which threaten aca
demic dignity and freedom.
This change In tho duties of tho col
lege presldont has" como about,. Pro
fessor Canfleld says, as tho natural re
sult of growth and development which,
in tho academic world, as elBowhcro,
domands a highly contrallzed organi
zation. This Increased centralization
has Tellovod tho faculty of many ad
minlstrutlvo functions which dnco
demanded their attention, leaving
them free for "study, reseaVch und In
struction." Tho university Instructor
is no longer called upon to uddress
and mall col lego catalogues, read
proof for college announcements, ad
minister tho library, or concern him
self with "ovor petty case of student
discipline." On tho othor hand, "In
any American institution which may
be' called representative today, tho
faculty is in full control of educational
policy." While tho trustees or presi
dent may suggest and advlso, their
recommendations can not bocomo a
part of the college statutes without
formal endorsement by. tho faculty,
tho Instructor mriy so'lect his assist

(2) "Ho Js tho father of a great edu

(3) He must havo Vtifllcient Informa
tion and breadth of outlook to under

department, and ho must stand like a
wall of adamant between every In

nies the charge that tho college presi
dent has degenerated Into a,more
money seeker. Tho college president
realizes that to got endowment or ap
propriation he must make his college
worthy of them, arid this, oven If ho:
