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.

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 laboratory. In honor of their son Earl, who Is a member of the Phi Delta Theat fra ternlty, Mr. and Mrs. Samuel A. Foster entertained the members of that organization and their friends at a dancing party given at Frater nity hall last night. More than twen ty members of the active chapter and auout iniriy aiumni ana ouier menus of the family attended.
