Presence of University Head Thought
To be Sufficient To Prevent Dis
turbance by Sopho
mores. As a further indication that the Uni
versity authorities would sanction no
class scraps, kidnapping or similar
events, it was announced thiB morning
thnt Chancellor E. B. Andrews would
preside flver the first freshmen meet
ing of the year, to be held in Memor
ial hall, Thursday, Oct. 21. It has
been an established custom of the uni
versity that the president of the jun
ior claBs should preside at the meet
ing, but last year a bunch of the boh
ior boys got busy and hiked the jun
ior "president, Robert T. Elliott, away
on the afternoon of the class meeting.
Instead of presiding over the awe
stricken freshies, Elliott was lying on
his back in "Robber's Cafe" with both
hands and feet tied. Consequently no
one was present to take charge of the
meeting until Former Junior President
Wildish was summoned.
No Place for Disorder.
Any attempt to disturb the meetings
this year will result seriously for the
disturbers. Last year crowds of
"sophs" gathered around the hall door
nnd made life a burden for those who
attempted to gain entrance. It waa
only through the efforts of John Uhl
that order was preserved and sopho
mores were prevented from attending
the meeting. As it was, several mem
bers' of the upper class entered the
hall and cast a ballot. The exact rules
governing the election will be deter
mined by President Byerts of the ju
nior class. However, since the class
liaa no constitution stating who are
and who are not members, it is prob
able that all who are taking work for
the first year In the university wijl be
allowed to vote, whether they lack
some of being full fledged freshmen or
The freshmen class thiB year is an
exceptionally large one and there will
be several hundred votes cast. It is
possible that the meeting will be held
in the afternooa since it will require
some time to complete the election of
president, although the hour has been
Bet for 11:30. ThiB is the first time
that any of the university authorities
have taken' charge of the meeting and
it chows that all acts of rowdyism are
to be punished. The movement will
undoubtedly meec with much approval
from a majority of the students. The
unpleasant notoriety which has "been
placed on the university by the kid
napping scrapes of the past year has
served to r.rous a spirit of opposition
in the parents of the students, so that
moat of them will be glad to see those
affairs done away with.
Would Like Push Ball.
In accordance to a suggestion
thrown out, some of the classmen
have expressed a wiflh that class riv
alry be settled in. a push ball con
test, the winning class team carrying
off the laurels for their class. To say
that the -contest could at leaBt arouse
no such lamentable features as the
kidnappings and class fights and yet
would serve to keep up the class spir
it. The push ball contest has become
a prime favorite in the east and In
many colleges a special day is set
aBldo for the carrying out of this con
test. It Is- possible that the push ball
will be one of the innovations ln'Unl-
verslty class rivalries, within the next
With the announcement of the class
meeting, 'a week from today, the four
candidates for the presidency of the '
class started the final campaign which
each hopes will bring victory to him.
The problem is rather complicated,
since it 1b difficult to make any accur
ate estimate of the strength of the
Grand Island nnd Gothenburg men.
Clarence Clark of Lincoln has a large
following, while Rowan of Columbus
lt reported to havo an active bunch
of campaign managers. With four
men in the race, tho vote will un
doubtedly be so badly split that no
one can secure a majority, which is
required to elect, on the first ballot.
With two ballots there Ib a chanco
for combination, although all of the
candidates report that they are op
posed to combinations. Clark of Lin
coln secured a big lead over all other
competitors by announcing 1'iIb can
didacy early In the registration week.
It 1b rumored that there Is a strong
fight against him, Blnce ho is from
Lincoln and tho over-the-state students
are combined against a Lincoln man.
The campaign promises to be warm
and the outcome will be awaited with
Attempt to Get a Design
Standard Pin.
Yesterday morning, at a meeting of
the senior class, the remaining offi
cers were chosen, fllr. Frank Reinsch
received the vote of the class for the
vice-presidency; MIbs Louise Stegner
was made secretary and Mr. P. A.
Jones was made treasurer.
A committee was appointed to con
sider designs for clasB pins and to
attempt to get a design which could
be UBed for all classes, by simply
changing the class numerals. If this
'can be done, all classes will be urged
to adopt the standard form, so that
all class pins of the university may
bq similar.
Miss Taylor's Work.
Few speakers who have addressed
tho university Y. W. C. A.'havo made
as profound an impression as that

diences are growing in numbers nnd

8lx Hundred Students Assemble at the
Burlington Station to Bid the
Team Good Luck Chances
Better Than Ever.
Not for many yoars has enthusiasm
run so nigh on tho eve of an athletic
contest as It did last night when the
football team loft on its Journey to
Gopherland. As early aB five-thirty tho
crowd began to assemble at tho Bur
lington station and long beforo train
leaving time tho entire station plat
form was jammed with a horde of en
thusiastic and cheering students, both
men and women, who wero anxious to
givo the players an encouraging send
off. It is superfluous to say mat they suc
ceeded. As tho timo for the train to
pull out approached, tho players edged
their way Into tho pa?Ior car with tho
evident Intention of taking a quiot
departure, but the vociferously enthus
iastic crowd would havo nono of it
They surged In toward tho vestibule
of the car which had been reserved
for the team and one by one, from the
coach to the substitues, the players
were compelled to appear on the steps
for a moment and to express the con
fidence which they ielt in their ability
to numbie tho husky Gophers next
It was a -Bcono-calculated to make
the iioart of even a man who had never
Been a college, boat faster. People on
tho platform who were leaving on
JourneyB of a different purpose than to
see Saturday's great game, were
warmed by the sincore enthusiasm of
the Ave or six hundred cheering stu
dents nnd they too joined In the ring
ing cheers for Nebraska and listened
as eagerly as any to the faltering and
hesitating, but forceful, spoecnos of the
emoarrassed players. Passengers on
incoming trains watched tho stirring
scene from windows and car platforms.
- traveling man was heard to remark,
"'Even a poor team, when backed by
such enthusiasm ami spirit as,
could go in nnd win a victory.
The Band Gets Busy.
The cadet band appeared on the
Bcene and "livened things up by play
ing several pieces. The students called
loudly for "King" Cole and the coach
Anally appeared for a moment and
saId ..KnowIng that weare backed by
such spirit as has been shown here
tonlgut we simply can't lose on Sat
urday." Jim Harvey, Bill Chaloupka, and in
fact all the heroes, which includes
every member of the squad,, appeared
on the stepsfor a moment and each
one expressed the thought which was
uppermost in everyone's mind, that
"wo must come home from Minnesota
There was something almost comical
in the manner in which some of the
big Cornhuskers addressed the crowed.
Players who would not hesitate to
tactile the fiercest of runners or dive
into a heavy mass play, mounted the
steps of the car in fear and trembling,
and with flushed face and awkward
tongue .would blurt out something like,
"We've got to beat that bunch 1" But
it was tne manifest sincerity of each
and every one which made the bit
with the rooters and they now rest as
sured taat every player will do his
level best and 'that if it lies in human
power to defeat Minnesota that thing
will be accomplished by the Cornhus
kers on Saturday.
Excursion Growing.
The great enthusiasm which was
manifested lart night has done much
to Increase the number who will take
advantage, of the excursion to Min
neapolis. One car haa been reserved
by Lincoln business men who will
mako the trip and It Ib roported that
about two carloads of Omaha pooplo
will go on tho oxcurslon. It Is not def
initely known juBt how many univer
sity students aro going, but It Is be
lieved that the numbor is far in oxcoss
of a hundred. This moans that an
extra section will probably bo run to
accommodate the excursionists.
