Weakened by, the absence or three
of tJheir 'strongest players, Colorado
Was yet able to give Colo's Cornhusk-
ers a hard struggle, forcing the Ne
braska; -men tof .thor utmdst to win.
The CbrnhuBkers were forced to light
desperately at times to protect tholr
own goal, which has yet to be crossed
this year, from Invasion by the Moun
taineers and to score a victory re
quired the hardest kind of fighting.
The game was marked for Its clean
play and general good feeling dis
played by the opposing teams was evi
dent. Much of the ground gained by
both teams was a result of the punt
ing, toy Captain Woller for the Corn
huskers and Quarterback St'irrett of
the Colorado team Stlrrett's punting
was unusually strong throughout tho
.game, Captain Woller having little the
best of his opponent.
Nebraska found It difficult to pierce
the- sturdy line of the visitors. Save
for the first part of the second half,
when Nebraska started a fierce attack
op the Mountaineers, Cole's pupils
were unable to make consistent gains
through thq Colorado line. Tho Colo
rado ends and tackles did grout 'work
Ip "breaking- up. the Nebraska plays
and Kroger, and Weller wore seldom
able to make good gains. The final
play la which. Weller circled left end
for forty-five yards was tho only time
Nebraska was able to gain to any
great extent around the ends.
At the opening of the second half
Nebraska regained Its power of at
tack, and began a terrific battering
which Colorado was unable to with
stand, giving the Cornhuskers their
second touchdown. This was one of
tho most thrilling parts of the game.
Fighting desperately, tho Westerners
were forced "back toward tholr own
goal, by tho hammering attacks of
the, Nobraskans. With the ball on
1 Colorado's 3-yard line, Weller scored
the touchdown through right tackle.
The attack of the Colorado team
1 was more versatllo than that of the
Cornhuskers, the Mountaineers being
. able to - advancGwftiilh striking dls
'' tnnco of Nebraska's goal several times.
Aside from tho work of the two
.punters, Weller and Stlrrott, tho fea-
ture of (h'o game was tho success with
' which, the visitors worked tthe for-
ward "pass. Five out of eight attempts
,tl.oy made it good for gains varying
from 15 to 35 yards. Nebraska tried
,'the- forward pass twice, neither time
. ",'bolng able to gain on them. The ac
curacy of Stlrrett's throwing the ball,

First Meeting Held at Home of Dean
Tho first meeting of the Graduate
Club of the University was held at
tho home of Dean and Mrs. L; A.
Sherman on Thursday evening. A
large audience made up of members
of the faculty and graduate students
greatly enjoyed the address of Pro
fessor F. M. Fling on "Recent Work
on tho French Revolution," and the.
address of Professor F. C. French
In "Recent Work in Philosophy and
Psychology." Professor Fling's re
marks on tho proper relation between
the head of a department and the
I graduate student were timely and val
uable. Professor French's story of
Sally and "multiple personalities was
greatly enjoyed and afforded much
opportunity for farther discussion dur
ing the social hour. Tho vocal num
bers rendered by Mrs. Dobbs-Helms
w.ere particularly pleasing and were
enthusiastically encored. The social
hour following the program was a
delightful feature of the evening as It
afforded an opportunity of meeting tho
new members of the faculty ahd'grad
uate students. r
The purpose of the club Is to unify
and stimulate graduate work In the
University and every member of tho
faculty and every graduate student Is
entitled to membership and should
avail himself of this privilege and
consider it his duty to thus further
graduate work In the University.
The next meeting will be hold In December.

One of the surprises nt tho Mo'tro
polltnn Opera Hou&e, Now Y6rk, last
season was the ability of Bessie Abott
to respond to "distress" calls with
master porformnnces of Important
roles. 'Mr. H. E. Krohblel, of tho
"Tribune," comments on one of these
prize evenings, In words that flow with

again at the Metropolitan Opera Houso
last night, and It bore tho word that

appearance In other parts at the
oleventh hour have, howevor, been
made so successfully that there was a
lively and justifiably curiosity to see
and hoar her as the "daily of tho Ca
mellas." Tho youthful artist has un
doubted qualifications for tho part, she
can suggest fraillty in the literal sense,
for she Is not Inevitably and always
the picture of robust health;' she dan
suggest tho fraillty of a woman, too
affectionate,' and of the broken but

Tho residential quad system, advo
cated by John Corbln fqr Michigan
University in his recent articlo on
that' University, was rojectod last
week by tho trustees of Princeton
University. Tho board, ono of tho
members of which is ox-Presldoht
Clovolund, asked PreBldont Wilson,
father of tho "quad" plan at Prlncot6n,
to withdraw It. He compiled with its
Tho quudrangular system as plan-
nod for Michlgnn and Prlncoton would
ncceuBltntq tho living, eating, and
studying together of small groups of .
students In halls or dormitories. Mr.
Corbln proposed this "quad" systori)
becauso ho thinks that It would fur
nish for Michigan students "the In
fluences that mako most strongly 'for
character and culture by operating
without Intormlssion In the normal,
and inovltablo occupations outing
and sleeping, work and play."
Princeton has been cqmpollod to
postpone tho adoption of the system,
beoauso to establish It in entiro and
at ono time would cost $2,000,000. If
It Is pointed out, such would bo tho
cost' for u university having somewhat
less thnn 2,000 students, it certainly
would not bo possible for tho Unlvof
slty of Michigan with its 5,000 stu

In a loiter to tho Prlncoton
"Alumni Weekly," Dr. Henry Van
Dyke, who occupies tho Murray pro
fessorship of English, opposos llie
"quad" system because ho says
it is un-Amorlcnn and a mpnaco to
the democracy of Prlncoton. Although
'the conditions of life at Prlncoton
aro different from those at Michigan,
some of the objections raisod to tho '
system by Dr. Van Dyke could well
apply to Michigan's cubo since the
scheme 1b proposed for her.
'In his. letter Dr. Van Dyke asks,
"Would a group of young men who,
Instead of merely eating together,
spent all their. freo time together, and
lived entirely und6r ono roof within
the walls- of tho same structure, be
likely to escape from the spirit of t
clique nnd oXcluslvoness?"
'Ho contends that the scheme would
first produce social confusion and then
social stratification. "This, after all,"
ho continues, "Is the alarming1 thing
about tho .now scheme. It irf full of
danger for the unity, for the fellow
ship of tho undergraduate body. With
all Its indefinlteness on practical
points, its 'essential idea' is undemo
cratic, separative, exclusive. It is
distinctly an un-Amerlcari plan. It
threatens not pnly to break up "the"
classes, but also to put the Princeton
spirit out of date, by forming perma
nent, artificial groups of freshmen,
