Peru Stato Normal The game will bo
called at 3:30.
Nebraska makes her first appear
ance of the season of 1907 today with
Islngone of theolhrdlotaolshrdeltaolr
one of the most encouraging and prom
ising squads that she lias ever had
and her supporters feel the Cornhus
kers are sure to bo a winning bunch
this fall. The contest this afternoon,
while being no true test of the ability
of the Nebraska men, will give every
one of thom a chance to show up at
a good advantage and will bring out
any star material on the squad.
It is the Intention of Coach Colo to
give a majority of the men on the
Bquad a try-out today and any latent
ability among the men will be likely
to come out In this contest.
The Peru bunch Is a likely looking
eleven and If the "dope" Is not away
off they will spring several surprises
on the Cornhuskers. They have one or
two light fellows who are said to bo
regular Eckersalls In ground gaining.
In Bocret practice this week their men
are said to have done some of tho most
sensational work with the forward
pass every seen at Peru and tho stato
normal coach Is expecting them to
score some points for Peru this after
noon. On account of the rain yesterday
afternoon tho Cornhuskers were run
through a light practice In tho
armory by "King" Cole, Instpad of be
ing taken out on tho gridiron. Tho
work of the afternoon cpnslsted of
practice in throwing the bail, and In
catching punts and forward passes.

It sometimes Bourns that tho Uni
versity of Nebraska is going forward
very slowly, but each year, as tho old
students return new changes aro
found that make the Institution seem
better than ever, and indicate that,
slowly but surely the University Is
forging ahead. One of the most no
ticeable changes this summer is tho
better appearance of our campus. Not
only have now (lower bods been
planted but fonces have been so placed
that the old unsightly paths across
the grass aro no longer used.. About .
soveral of tho buildings cement walks
have taken the place of the old board
walks and many other Improvements
made on tho grounds and buildings.
During the vacation months an en
gineering feat of more than ordinary
importance was accomplished on the
campus. It was found necessary to
move the largo and imposing astron
omical observatory which used to be
located near the new musouni. After
much consulatlon by several promi
nent authorities on engineering prob
lems, a plan was devised whereby It
was thought tho structure might bo.
safely and cheaply moved. A largo
force of mon was at once put to
work, and as a result tho big build
ing Is now located near tho new
physics building. So carefully was
the whole thing done that not even
a mark romainB to Bhow where this
work was accomplished.
The names of the different buildings
have been placed over the doorways.
This has proved a great help, to tho
first classmen In getting acquainted,
and Is a groat convenience to visitors
on the campus.
Tho basement of tho Administra
tion building has been one of tho
busiest places on tho campus during
tho last two weeks. Tho long lines
of people buying books and subscrib
ing to the Nobraskan have kept tho
hall crowded. The Nobraskan Is now
occupying tho office that the Corn
husker occupied last year. The Corn
husker will occupy tho office vacated
by tho Nobraskan.
During tho summer tho Y. M. C. A.
moved to the east end of tho base
ment of University hall. These
quarters are merely temporary, as
tho Y. M. C. A. expects to have rooms
In tho new Temple. The old rooms
have been fitted up for a geographical
