8tudcnt Athletic Tickets.
Tho sale of tho student athletic tick
otB has been far from satisfactory. To
tho8o who Inaugurated the plan of
cheaper admission tho results bo far
havo boon disappointing. For tho first
fow daya lastweek tho demand for
tho tickets was brlBk and tho number
pold Indicated a largo sale for the sea
son, during tho last fow days, however,
sales havo fallen off and tho tickets
are not being bought as fast as thoy
should to make the now system a suc
cess. There need bo no hesitancy about
purchasing tho tickets. The new. plan
was adopted for tho benefit of the stu
dents, 'and to popularize all branchos
of Cornhusckor sports. It haB mad
posslblo tho attendance at all athlotlc
contests of the year for practically tho
same price that boforo was paid for
single season's football gamoB. No
student can lose money by paying $3
for one of tho tickets unless ho loaves
tho university before the oIobo of tho
gridiron season. Such cubcs will be
rare. Students who have been "kick
ing" about the high admission charged
to gridiron contests in tho past now
havo a chanco to see tho games for a
yery small price. Tho-gtris-also- have
an opportunity open to them.
Thoy can attend tho athletic con
tests wlhout feeling that they need to
be accompaniod by a young man.
Special sections will bo Yosorved for
thorn at tho games, where thoy may
go without escort and yet feel no em
barrassment because aomo other girl
Is siting in another part of the
grounds with a young man' who has
como out with her. Indopondonco and
self-reliance of women can bo asserted
in no bottor way by tho Nebraska co
eds than In attending tho athletic con
tests of tho school on a student tick
et and without a male escort.
" A certain number of these tickets
will have to bo sold within- a fow
weeks in order to make the new cheap
admission plan a success. Tho stu
dent ticket schemo has not become
established at this university. It is
. simply on trial. Last spring there was
a demand for some such plan and tho
athlotlc board doolded to try the $3
ticket book this v fall. If it falls to
bring tho desired results the sale of
the tickets will bo discontinued in a
short time after tho football season
starts 'and tho single admission charge
for all contests will bo made to stu
dents who havo not purchased tho $3
Xt la up to the Nebraska students to
dccldo whether the now plan shall
llvo. If thoy want to boo tho various
eportlng oventB each year for a very
low Bum thoy muBt make tho sale of
tickets thlB fall largo enough to en
courage tho athlotlc board to continui
ng plan now being tried.

Professor Aylsworth Thinks Time Not
In lecturing to hlB class In Politi
cal Science 1 yesterday morning. Ad
junct ProfesBor Aylsworth commented
upon tho continually Increasing num
ber of young .ladles taking that sub
ject. Three yeare ago, ho said, there
wore only two girls in the class the
first semoBtor, and but four or five
tho second semester in the entire
course. During tho last semester of
lust year thoro wore thirteen, and
there are thirteen this semester In tho
morning division alone. Tho professor
stated that he oxpected twenty-five or
thirty in the afternoon class. It Is es
pecially deslrouB. he remarked, to
have many young men Incorporate
tho Btudy of political science In their
college course, that they may bo com
petent to vote, but, since, in his opin
ion, women will also soon bo allowed
to vote ovor the entire nation, they
alBo should learn something of tho
science of government, that sentiment
alone may not guide their ballots.

the choice will be made In a few days.
II transpires that the election of Ca

which originated with Capron himself.
No election was held at all. Three
players told Capron that If he would
play for Minnesota they would vote for

all tho local newspapers that he had
been elected captain. Coach Williams

Kicking and passing the ball will

Dr. Fred Spelk, tho former Univer

seventy-five men report to him for the
opening practice. Tho now coach gavo
a short talk to the candidates and
told them that much was expected of

Four elevens were seleced from the
squad and put through formation
work, while a number of candidates
practiced passing the ball and punting.
Dr. Spelk was assisted by Ferguson, a
former Maroon, and Assistant Coach
Nlcol. The head coach expects the
"boiler makers" to make a strong
showing against Chicago. All of the
star players of the freshman and soph
omore teams of Inst year were out In
suits nild give promise of making the
varsity regulars hustle to hold their
places. Of the old men, BerkhelBer,
Welllnghoff, Kirk, Bryan, Torrence,
and Gordon are not back, but their
places will be easy to fill.
Football practice opened with a rec
ord breaking bunch at work. Sixty
five men were on hand, and Coaches

day with nearly two hours' work run

guards; Hastings, center; Stutz,
Bruggemnn, an.l Bemls, quarter back;
Hazard, the star half back, was
switched to end, where Catlln will
probably play him this year. All were
In excellent Bhape.
The biggest squad of freshmen In
the history of football hero also ap
peared. Many of them have had high
school and minor college experience
and look like high grade players.
Football activities began at the Uni
versity of Chicago under a blistering
sun and n proverbial cloud of gloom.
One of Stagg's stars long John An
derson a familiar player to the Mar
shall field crowds on account of his
narrow physique and mass of blond
hair, was lopped off the team for In
eligibility and another, Louis Fal.k, It
was reported, probably would not come
back to school again.
For just a minute or two of play In
a football gamo three years ago An
derson must pass up tho game this
year. He was pushed Into the contest
with Indiana by Fred Spelk now coach
at Purdue, while Stagg was away in
Milwaukee getting a line on Wiscon
sin. Anderson declares he played
In only three or four scrimmages when
the gamo came to an end.
Those three or four downs now cost
the Maroon center a whole season of
play, as the recent rulings hold that
If a man has been placed In the line
up and participated In thev sport as
much as one down the experience shall
count nB much as a whole season. An

Twenty-nlno men, all told, appeared
In uniform. Of this number twenty

and Bont Doseff and Anderson to take
charge of tho freshmen.-
Eight plays were learned before tho
gates were thrown open to tho public.
Most of the plays had to do with the

According to dispatches from Law
rence, Kans., the seat of Kansas uni
versity, that Institution 1b just rising
to a level which was attained by Ne
rbaska several years ago. For a
number of years restrictions havo
been placed on the choice of rooming
houses by young lady students of this
university, but at Kansas such rules
have not been In force until now. Ad
vices from Lawrence state the matter
"There Is to be a reform among tho
rooming houses In Lawrence this fall.
The University of Kansas faculty has
drawn up contracts which all persons
who rent rooms to students must Blgn
If they want their roonvs to appear on
tho approved list. Boys and girls are
not to be taken as roomers In the
same house. Where girls are allowed
tho use of the parlor, callers are not
lo be allowed to remain later than
10:30 o'clock. Other rules regarding
the conduct of roomers are Included
in the contracts. All the rooms of
fered for rent have been examined
by a committee appointed by -the fac
ulty. "Heretofore there have been no uni
form rules governing boarding houses
Lincoln Approved List.
The approved list of Lincoln room
ing houses as filed In the office of the
registrar shows that about fifty places
have been sanctioned by the univer
sity authorities. These Include
houses renting any number of rooms,
from one up. No young woman can
rent n room 'at any place not on the
approved list without having trouble
with the registrar and the dean of
women. This list and regulation has
the effect of preventing men and
women from rooming In tho samo
house and It also makes impossible
other conditions not conducive to the
welfare of the students.
Besides the canvass of the univer
sity authorities, the Y. M. C. A. com
piled a list of suitable rooming places
for men. It was found that thoro
were nearly four times as many Lin-
coin citizens who were desirous of
having young gentlemen room in the
house as there were thoso who wished
young lady patrons. For some reason
the landladies seemed to regard tho
university youth with his pipe and
pouch lesB troublesome than the co
ed who must press her dresses at tho
kitchen stove and make fudge over
the- gas jet.
For both men and women the prlca
of rooms was about tho Bamo. The
range was from $4 to $25, with an
average cost per month of about $10. .
Students in field geography 9 are
not required to meet every Saturday.
