THE NEXT CAPTAIN.
There Is considerable, spoculatlpn
rifo at tho prosont time among the stu
dents generally In regard to who will
captain Nebraska's football team next
soason. This subjoct is indeed one of
Importance and well deserving of the
.consideration and Interest of every
ono, Inasmuch as tho lnfluonce of 'the
captain on the team for tho good or
bad of tho same could well bo lncal
enable. If a man is chosen to fill that
place of honor It should bo because
he Is deserving and because ho pos
sesses marked ability in other affairs
than football, so that there will be
nt all times a power at work in tho
person of tho captain to produce a
earn that will be victorious and by
their achievements and prowess re
flect credit upon tho University. No
doubt it would not be true to remark
that a poor team Is worse than no

team at all, but there is no reason
foi having such remarks apply to Ne
braska If care Is used in every detail
affecting In any way this subject The
selection of a captain Is by no means
tho merest trifle, although It Is not
so momentous perhaps as tho selec
tion of a- cOach or tho quality of tho
material for tho balance of the team.
good start has been made In the
re-election of "King" Cole for coaeh;
'let tho same spirit of fair-mindedness
guide In tho selection of the captain
for tho '08 team.
In regard ta tho olectlon of the cap
tain by tho team, many students havo
tho erroneous impression that tho"
vote will not bo a full ono because
it is thought that tho ballots of some
o.' tho "N" mon may bo thrown out
on account of non-payment of tho
training table dues. The Athletic
Hoard is perfectly justified In sustain
ing with flrnrnoBs any and all rules
they havo seon fit to Impose, but thoro
Is but Blight chance that this provi
sion will affect any member of thlB
year's team. It is strange Indeed how
or why thoro should be such an Im
pression current as this. In the past
tho football men havo, with but few
exceptions, always paid their board
at tho training table and there is no
apparent justification for a belief that
the result will be different this yec,
Tho sum charged pen week lg merely
.nominal and although It attains re
spectable proportions for- tho whole
season, nevertheless no one could urge
that tho price was exorbitant or that
full, value had not heon received. To
maiiftatn that this year's team, or any
member of It, will fall to discharge
this obligation Is manifestly unfair
and contrary to tho facts as they will
appear at tho time of election In Janu
ary. Whoever tho captain is to bo,
it Is safe to say that ho will be chosen
at an election where there Is a
"full vote out."
Graduate Club Meets
The second meeting of the Graduate
Club, which was hold at tho homo of
Mr. and Mrs, A. J. Sawyer, No. 5
Floral Park, was even more success
ful than tho first meeting of tho year.
The spacious parlors were entirely
filled with a very enthusiastic and
approclatlvo audience representing all
deirartments of the University, a
largo number of both tho faculty and
graduate students being present. The
condensed resume of the work done
In Germanics, given by Professor
tFossler, gave the club a glimpse Into
'the faclnatlng field of Philology. The
Club was honored by tho pfe.senco of
Dean Hall of the Medical School of
Northwestern University. Dr. Hall re

A very interesting talk alopg the

the field "of Zoology, given by Dean
Ward, was much enjoyed by the club.

yoko and a piano solo by' Miss' Ernst.
Professor Bessey has recently had
n largo historical chart made, which
bhows In a very striking manner the
time at which great botanists lived.
Through the dark ages, for nearly a
thousand years, there was not a single
botanist. Then gradually tho number
increases until in our own times there
aro more than can be mentioned. The
chart shows Theophrastus as the first
botanist, with Aristotle a close second.

you'd better get busy, for besides a
beautiful room, you will see a lot of
beaming girls greeting each other
with, "Isn't it splendid to be so near

ports that ?480 of the furnishing bill
of $500 has been paid, and if all ' tho
pledges were In the bill would pe en

the Y. W. girls wish to acknowledge
tho generosity which has given tho
association such a time of rejoicing.
