KANSAS WIN8 TWO CL08E GAMES.
Nebraska 'MUst Share the Missouri
Valley Championship With
Kansas again won from Nebraska at
basket-ball Saturday evening by the
score of -twenty :nlno to twenty-ilve.
This defeat was a most unfortunate
one for Nebraska as it necessitates
the sharing of the honors of the Mis-
-sour! Valley champlonsnlp with Kan
sas. ,Tho two toam8 havo played four
:games this season and the final result
is two victories for each team. " The
two teams are nearly evenly matched
and those who Were fortunate enough
to witness either or both of the games
played Friday and Saturday will have
something to remember for a long time
to come. The first game was hair
raising to say the least and the sec
ond one was, if possible, even more
fierce. It more than fulfilled the ex
lactations which Friday night's game
had created. Both the games can
safely be placed In that class of con
tests which is characterized by such
games as the Ames-Nebraska football
game last fall.
' ' In the first half of the Becond game
the difference between the scores of
"the two teams was never more than
two points. The play was fast and
fierce and the referee was continually
calling fouls upon over-zealous play-
er. During the first half alone
Woodward of Kansas threw seven free
goals from fouls and Walsh of Nebras
ka threw six. McCune of Kansas star
red in basket throwing; during the
game he threw five field goals. He
was Injured In a collision with Borao
one during the second half, but re
turned to the game after a few min
Burruss of Nebraska was a close
second" in -basket shooting. Ho was
responsible for four field goalsL Al-
4 though not as spectacular as usual,
(due to the fact probably that Kan-
f sas covered their men, so carefully)
yet he had as usual more than half
of Nebraska's total points to his cred
it; Woods played" the entire game at
forward and was evidently doing hlB
' best to make good for ho was In the
game every minute. The BellB played
a strong game at the guard positions
' but bad few opportunities to Increase
v the score.
The team leaves this week for their
long trip, Including- games with Min
nesota and Wisconsin. It is to ho
' hoped, that the two defeats at the
- hands of the Jayhawkers will- not dis
courage them from bringing home a
few Bcalps. From the tenthuBlasm d'!
played at Friday's and Saturday's
games they may up assured that they
will enter every game on this trip
t hacked up by; ho interest, and best
wishes of the' entire "student body.
The line-up and score was. as fol-

Met In Temple Saturday Evening
The Jefferson Club of the University
of Nebraska met In the Temple Sat
urday evening to .celebrate Washing
ton's Birthday. Many prominent Demo
crats were present. The meeting was
lively and the speeches Instructive.
President Hough for the society
said he thought this celebration by
the club fitting,) since Washington's
motives were the same as are those of
present day Democracy a deep con
cern for the Interests of the whole peo
ple. Mr. Brown, Lincoln's democratic
mayor, plead for clean municipal ad
ministration. He urged the young
men to take a more active interest In
the matters of local good government.
Mr. John A. McGuIre talked glpwlng
ly on the democratic prospects.
Mr. Richard Metcalfe, editor of the
Commoner, gave the main address of
the evening. "Politics," he said, "is an'
honorable field. We like to assume
that all parties Intend to do right.
Even Chancellor Day In his defence of
corporate greed may be sincere. A
great awakening is coming over the
American people. It is not quite here
or (Congressmen would not daro intro
duce bills like recent ones on ship sub
sidy and the asset currency. In the
republican party many nave awakened
to the need for a revision of the tar
iff. But they fear to explode what they
know to be a fallacy lest the demo
crats be given an added argument.
"However muchof truth there might
be In the matter, It was customary
to attribute all things, good and HI to
the dominant party. The statement
that 'Panics come under democratic
administration, they do not happen un
der republican administration' could
no longer bo used; and the 'full dinner
pail' slogan is useless too.
"President Roosevelt has doubtless
been rendered somewhat too self con
fident by the hero-worship which has
attended him In the last few years. We
can only trust the next president will
be free from such a misfortune."
The .-following resolutions ' wero
passed by thq Jefferson Club:
'Bo it resolved: That the Jefferson
Club of. the University of .Nebraska
, express' its profound conviction ln tho
soundness or tne democratic doctrines
as now advocated by William Jennings
And be It further resolvod: That,
reposing -Implicit . confidence in the
character and ability of William Jen
nings Bryan, we believe him to be the
person best fitted to occupy the high
est poBt of honor and responsibility
our nation can give.

subject seriously, to find out their re
sponsibilities, and to do what they can
to widen opportunities and privileges
in life for the next generation; if only
out of recognition for what the "equal
privileges" people of the last genera
tion have made possible for them. Part
of the success of Mrs. Parks In effect

and a wish to render service In the.
more thoughtful of her hearers.

Jean Fleming? vice-president, Viola

social lights and belles of tho Univer
sity. Mrs. Parks came to Lincoln after

ornia. She Is a member of the nation
al association of collegiate alumnae,
