board ono presidential candidato spoak
on tho campus and will havo an oppor

other aspirant. It is not llkoly that
any other college or unlvorslty Is so
situated that both of the candidatos
will favor the Btudonts with their proB
onco. Some universities may rocolvo
ono of the groat men, but thoy will
n"6t have their roBtrum graced by tlio
two of them this fall. That Nebraska
students appreclae their situation was
well shown yesterday in tho rocoption
accorded Judge Taft.
Thoy turned out in largo numbors ir
respective of party and greoted tho
republican nominee with a cordiality
that made him feel at homo in tho city
or his great opponont. Some of those
wbb chgered lor Judge Taft wore re
publicans and some woro democrats,
but it mado no difference what thoir
party affiliations woro, for the Judge
was tho university's guest and ho was
ontltled to tho greatest show of re
spect Nebraska could glvo him. It
was that which ho received.

Later in the month when Mr. Bryan
finds tlmo to- address a meeting con
ducted by tho Nebraska Bryan and
Korn club he will receive Just as warm
a rocoption as was given Mr. Taft yes
terday. Republican students at that
time will get out and show tho demo
crats that Mr. Bryan Is ontltled" to
just as many courtesies as the unlvor
slty can give him.
THE COLLEGE HOUR.
Por several years It has boon tho
cUBtom for the women of tho faculty ta
serve toa on Friday afternoon to tho
university girls, giving thorn an oppor
tunity to become acquainted and to
meet the wlveB of the professors. ThlB

tho men ob well as the girls will bo
welcome at theBo informal receptions,
known as the "College Hour." Tho
members of the faculty and all stu
dents are Invited to these teas. Tho
first College Hour will bo held on Fri

SQUAD PRACTICE IMPROVING
Work Last Night Fast and Plays Were
8tarted Without the LongDe
lays Noticeable In Satur
days Game With'Reru.
Tho second scrimmage of the week
was in order last ovoninu: at Tntelopo
Park and it waB intcioslinK and excit
ing, if not altogether a first cldds ex
hibition. For tho Hint time this sea
son tho varsity exhlb'.'ot signs of their
old-time speed which is so oHaential
to tho success -it nny team. The
scrubs too, got In on tho "hurry-up"
tactics and did ovon bettor than Ihoy
did tho night boforo, when their con
duct brought forth considerable pralse.
Coach colo sprung a new !lno of
work on his pupils lust evening In tho
shapo of a tackling machine. A frame
was rigged up over at the south end
of tho grounds and from it a canvass
dummy was Busponded by a rope and
pulloy. A pile ofhay was placed under
tho dummy and then tho mon lined up
and coached on tho fine points and tho
most gontlo manner of breaking a man
In two by tackling him. Tho men wero
drilled particularly In the flying tackle,
that Is tackling by taking a run and
dive at tho person to bo thrown.
Hit Dummy Hard.
Aftor a fow trials ovoryono on tho
sqund could throw tho dummy vicious
ly enough to satisfy tho most chicken
hoarted spectators and several ven
tured to predict that more than ono
of tho Douno warriors will bo crippled
for Hfo noxt Saturday. This practice
will doubtless bo of groat value to
somo of. tho lino mon ns well as to tho
backs, for it has boon noticed on sev
eral occasions that lino mon wore ablo
to break through thoir opponents' lino
but did not succeed in breaking up and
stopping plays oven aftor thoy woro
Another addition to tho fixtures of
tho grounds which appeared this week
Is tho now score board. Manager Eager
says that this will be put in commis
sion at all of the remaining games this
season and by moans of it tho specta
tors may know at all times tho score,

formerly at tho old athlotic Hold on

bo ample Beating space to accommo
date tho largo attendance which is an
ticipated at the big games this yoar.
Tho seating capacity at the park after
these now BtandB have beon erected
will bo in the neighborhood of ten
thousand. Plan For Tickets.
Manager Eager announced yester
day that the athletic board had de
cided upon the following plan which
will bo followed this season. Op, two
days, probably Wednesday and Thurs
day, of the week preceding tho games
tho sale of reserved seats will be hold
at tho office of tho university treasur
er. On these days students holding sea
son tickets may secure reserved seats
by presenting their boqks and paying
the difference between tho price of
general admission and the price of tho
reserved seatB. On these days tho
seats will be for sale only to students
holding these books and only on these
days will students holding these books
bo ablo to socuro reserved seats by
means of thoir season tickets.
In tho scrimmage last night the
scrubs continued to show, up well and
when in possession of tho ball they
mado frequent large gains through
tho varsity lino and around thoir ends.
Aftor the initial kick-off it was eight
minutes before tho varsity was ablo
to make the first touchdown.
BUI Chaloupka was not in the game
last night, It was rumored that ho had
temporarily desortcd to tho republi
can ranks. In his absonco Harte was
moved from guard to right tackle, Cap
tain Jim Harvoy played in Harto's
place at guard, and Bentloy appeared
at right end. "Pip" Cooko played at
quartor, and Blrknor, Kroger, and
Rathbone hold down the backflold posi
tions. Temple played full-back on tho
Bcrubs nnd his ro-appoaranco is takon
to indicate that perhaps he may aftor
all make up his delinquency and be
como eligible. Stowtzneggor, Dowers,
and Elliott showed up to advantage
against tho varsity and froquontly
came In for somo spectacular work..
Coach Cole did not glvo out his po
litical bellofs last night, but he said
that, judging from the number of men
who failed to show up for practice,
politics and football didn't harmonize

collogo Is that which comos from tho
desire there Instilled to stand well
with tho mon with whom wo associate.
That is what develops character. That
is what makes college men worthy of
"Collogo life is to a certain oxtent
indicative of tho Hfo after leaving col
lege. It is indicative of the aftor life
except that It doeB not show all the
meanness of experience and of char
acter that Is to como nfter. It is a
wonderful oxporienco for the college
senior to go from his position of prom
inence and wlBdom In the unlvorslty
which gives him his diploma to a
place perhaps as office-boy at a woe
fully small wage. Yot I don't know
how wo could get along with tho grad
uates of our universities unless thoy
hnd some bucIi experience. In a year
or so thoy usually get the impression
that tho Idea of thoir own Importance
which thoy had while in college wns
somewhat exaggerated. And tho treat--ment
Is not harmful, for If a man has
the right sort of stuff In him It will
come out In any case.
The Right Estimate.
"I am a member of the Yale Cor
poration as well as an alumnus of tho
college and I am Intensely Interested
in the life of tho student body. I
wlBh that I know who among you were
the leaders, the debaters, the athletes,
and tho class presidents. I believe
that It is generally true that tho esti
mate placed upon a man by his mates
In college Is a correct estimate. You
will generally find it a reliable lndox
of tho kind of man that ho will be
come. Yet this is not always so. It
sometimes happens that a young man
entors college too young, so immature
that his actions there glvo no promise
of tho future that is to como. Some
times, too, a fellow who has lagged
through tho academic courses with but
little reputation for ability entors ono
of the professions and becomes a man
of great capabilities. This I have no
ticed especially in the medical profes
sion. Thore seems to be something
In that work which awakens tho dor
mant energy of tho man and brings
out what is really in him.
"And now, If you expected a pollti
cal speech of mo today, you aro going
to bo disappointed except in what I
am now going to say. I am deeply in
debted to you for your reception of
the opponont of one who is a distin
guished citizen of Lincoln and who is,
I presume from his general attitude
toward all universities, a great friend
of the University of Nebraska. I be
lieve that he would welcome me as you
have done and for it I thank him and
you and the people of Lincoln."

wnited for tho fellows to take thorn to
tho games. A few of theBo girls told
me that they had decided this year to
go to all the games whether thoy wore
asked by anybody or not.
"Ono of the girls snid she had often
In past years desired to go to games,
but nobody had aBked her and that she
did not want to go nlono for she felt
not many other girls would be there
without a gentleman escort. She of
course, was disappointed In not being
able to attend. But under the sludent
ticket plan she said that she would not
feel nt nil embarassed If she went
nlono, for she knew that thore would
be many other girls thoro without es
corts. She snid she was encouraging
nil the girls around the university to
"When the girls realize that we aro
making special provisions for accom
modating them nt the football games
and other contests, I think that they
will buy tickets more rapidly. Wo
have arranged to have a spocial root
ing section for the co-odB at football
games after the Doane cdntest noxt

be able to sit in this section where
there is sure to be a large crowd of the
Not New Idea.
Tho student ticket plan Is not a
new ono ,and has been tried nt several
of the other western universities, and
proved to be the very best method of
getting students out to games. At
Purdue, a school with a much smaller
attendance than Nebraska, 1300 tick
ets wore sold last year. In commenting
on the new plan as adopted at Nebras
ka, the Purdue Exponent has the fol
lowing to say:
"Tho athletic association of the Unl
vorslty of Nebraska has decided to try
the plan of selling students and facul
ty athlotic books, instead of charging
admission to football and other games,
separately, as heretofore. The plan is
an innovation of Purdue and Origin
ated in the fertile brain of Athletic Di
rector Hugh Nlcol. From its adoption
two years ago, the scheme proved a
decided success and soon attracted tho
attention and favorable comment of
other colleges, so much so, that they
soon came into line and took up the
"Nebraska, 'following the example of
Wisconsin, Kansas, and other universi
ties decided to try the 'Purdue plan'
and adopted a system modeled after
tho ono In use here. The bookB aro
Intended to sell at $3.00 and it is es
timated that, at least one thousand
books must be sold in order to insure
the success of the plan. Manager Eag
er has figured out that, by purchasing
n coupon book, at that prico the home
games will cost the students but flfteon
cents apiece. Until this fall a seuson
ticket to the football games alone sold
for $3.00 or $3.50. This fact alone
should insure the success of the plan.
Student Treasurer Field, When Inter
viewed last night by an Exponont re
porter estimated that ovor 1,300 books
would be sold this yoar. Director
Nichol has disposed of ovor 140 coupon
books to the merchants of Lafyetto
and the West Side. ThlB latter is es
pecially commendable since it sIiowb
that the merchants have the welfare
of the college at heart.
"It Is predicted that the scheme can
not but provo successful at the Ne
braska institution, and that tho timo
will come in the near futuree when
the. system will be used by the ath
lotic associations of all th olmport
ant universities, both cast and west."
