(Special to The Ndbraskan.)
Ames, la., Oct. 29. All eyes at
Ames 'this week are turned toward
the west, trying to fathom what Dame
Fortune has In storo for next Satur
day. Whenever two or three students
meet there is but one topic of con
versation the Ames-Nebraska game.
Instead of greeting his friend with a
cheery "Good morning!" the Aggie
halls thom with, "Well, what do you
think Nebraska will do to us?" Ne
braska and Ames undoubtedly havo
great teams and the students here
will bo on the rack until the score
comes over the wires next Saturday.
The goneral opinion here seems to bo
that the only way to plok the winning
team Is to flip- a coin and let luck
decide Its certainly beyond the dope
8tor. For a time there wero hopes of get
ting up an excursion to Lincoln, but
the decided stand of the railroads on
the excursion question blocked that.
The best rate they would offer was
eight thirty, and as Annie will soon
need a Christmas present, 'the excur
. slon Idea had to be abandoned. Nev
ertheless there will be enough I. S. C.
rootors on hand to encourage the
team With an A-M-E-S or two.
The canvas had been up around the
a'thletic field since a week ago Mon
day and will be kept up all this week.
An all holes aro carefully guarded,
the only clanco the rootors have had
to got a lino on the 'team was last
Saturday li the Amos-Cornell game.
The line they got was pretty discour
aging, but every one feels that the
toairi had a slump and will be In bet
ter shape by the end of the week.
There Is not a man on the sick list;
the hospital Is closed, and the doctor
is off' on a Ashing trip, so unless sorl
ous accidents occur this week the
team should reach Lincoln in fine
The team loaves hero Friday morn
ing at nine o'clock. If it wins. It will
' bo by great playing, while If It loses
it will be by the same kind. ., The
Cornhuskers are at least as strong
and hayo the advantage of playing at
home; but, 'barring flukes, the team
Itiat wins win play the greatest foot
ball seen in Lincoln In years.
The following article from the Ames
I. 8. G. Student gives the view that
paper takes on the Ames-Nebraska
Ames defeated Minnesota 0 to 8
In favor of the defeated; while Ne
braska outplayed them 5 to 8, also in
favor of the Gophers, 'What Is the
' conclusion?' Why the game it Lin
coln next Saturday will be a battle
royal and you don't want to miss it.

C. R .Tillotson, a Junior, Publishes a
List of Them.
Dean 'Bessey Is now distributing a
pamphlet on "Tr,ees of Lincoln and
Vicinity," by C. It. Tillotson, a Junior
In the Forestry Department ,and a
mem'ber of Alpha Theta Chi. It Is
the only complete work of this kind
and is of considerable local interest.
Trees growing in all parts of the
city, at the Stato Farm, at Wyuka
cemetery, and along 'Salt creek wero
examined. Of the trees examined,
thirty-seven wero foreign species,
sixty-seven were native to the United
States, and of these sixty-seven, thirty-nine
aro native to Nebraska.
These trees are growing, and grow
ing well, In a region which was onco
the open prairie. It Is true they are
slightly protected In summer from
the heat, and in winter from the cold
winds by tho houses and buildings of
the city. Although many of the trees
aro growing In a heavy sod, tthoy do
not seem to suffer from lack of Irrigation.

Players Out of the Game on Account
Injuries to Minor and (Burnett, who
havo not reported for practice this
week, havo cast a pall of gloom over
tho Cornhuskor eleven and havo great
ly lessened Nebraska's chances of vic
tory over 'Amos Saturday. Minor Is
out of the game with a bad knee and
probably will not bo in tho contest
Saturday.' 'Burnett, who was subbing
at half, Minor's positloq, has an In
jurcd ankle whlhc is keeping him out
of practice and which may prevent
his playing against the Iowa Aggies.
The absence of these men has necos
skated the shifting of Harvey from
end to the half position, where he
played last night. Beltzer Is back In
tho game again and is stationed at
end. Craig, half back on last year's
eleven, turned out for practice last
night and will be available for use at
any time Colo may need him.
Unless Minor and Burnett get into
shape before Saturday, Nebraska will
go into tho Ames game "badly handi

An enthusiastic crowd of democrats
gathered in Memorial Hall last even
ing to listen to talks by Bovoral promi
nent democrats. Judge G. L. Loomis
of Fremont, Dr. P. L. Hnll and Rich
ard L. Motcalfo wero announcod as
tho speakers of the evening.
Bo'foro tho regular speakers ar
rived Mr. Sundean, candidate for Ro
gon'fc of the Stato University, spoko
for a few minutes. Ho said that ho
had little thought there would bo any
mud-slinging in this campaign. Ho
could not conceive that his campaign
would bo considered by anyone to bo
of enough Importance to cause any
thing to be said which would wound
himself or hurt tho feelings of his
family and his relatives. Ho was
certain that at chapel the day beforo
he had said nothing which could re
flect upon the republican candidates
for Regent in any way. He had ,
known them to be of tho highest char
acter, and ho sincerely believed that
tho University would bo ribly man
aged If they should become Regents.
Ho used to be a friend of Judge
Reese and he did not understand how
the republicans were Influenced to
circulate the stories about him which
they had done.
Conditions in the local election a'ro
not so Intense as they used to he. The
time whon relatives and old friends
would become enemies because of
political differences is past. Wo
should be moderate in all 'things and
In nothing isMhis of more Importance
than In politics.
Judge Sawyer was called to tho
platform and -Spoko a few words. Ho
emphasized tho Importance of char
actor, and declared that it was formed
by Industry and sobriety. Ho also
spoko of gentleness and kindness as
an asset- of prime Importance at any
time and any place.
He spoke of our great seeming pros
perity ,but declared 'that ho believed
something was vitally wrong. Groat
fortunes have- been made, but tho
groat overwhelming majority of tho
people aro not any richer than they
used to be. Fairly Targe salaries aro
being paid, but the cost of living is
oven higher. There Is a desire In the
country for quick gains, a gambling
I spirit, which makes people, feel that
they are not willing to work for what
they wish. '
Judge Loomis spent most of his
time in a general discussion, only
touching upon democratic principles.
He emphasized the Importance of
high Ideals, as we can never rise
higher than our, ideals. He declared
that he liked to see young men busy,
whether it was mental or physical
