METHODISTS TEAR PROF'S SHIRT
Students at Baker University Run
Down at Raker university, Kansas,
the jolly Methodist have Ween hav
ing a regular reform school mutiny
again. The oilier night the boister
ous Bnkerltes got out en masse and
tore the night shirt off of a retired
missionary who is now attempting
to teach the natives or Baldwin a
few things; caught a village "cop"
cut alone and proceeded to roll him
in the dust until he nearly choked
to death, all the time rendering the
air with wierd cries of "We want
football." They then proceeded to
visit all the .homos of the faculty
members, serenading them with the
yell or "We want football, we want
football." In Trout or a professor's
house they built a fire and dunced
wierd dances all night.
It is said there were three hundred
students engaged in the melee. They
went J to the house of Professor Julius
Smith and bejran creating a disturb
ance which made Smith angry. He
blackened the eyes of several of them
betoie they got the better of the
tight ing parson and then they pro
ceeded to do tilings to him that made
him feel wretched and unhappy. He
called out the village police squad,
consisting of one crippled old sol
dier. "Old Soldier" was wallowed in
the ground and dragged down a road
that was covered' with dust. Ho was
greatly offended. Professor- Smith
and the "cop" assert that thoy will
arrest everyone of the students who
had "a part In planning or a han 1
in executing the wicked deeds."
The students wont on tho rampage
because tho faculty would not llston
to their demand to play football.
The board of trustees has voted to
allow football, but tho faculty has
not yot consented and Professor
Smith has been ono of the most
rabid professors against the game.
CO-EDS WIELD PAINT BRU8HE8.
University of Missouri Girls Were Not
Afraid of the Dark.
Four froshmon girls of the Unlversl
ty of Missouri, all alone, journeyed out
to Rollins field last night with paint
buckets and brushos, smearod cream
colored paint all over the engineers'
numerals oh tho baseball backstop and
substituted tho word ''Co-eds" in big
black lottors. Two mean engineers
saw them at work and this morning
tho protty sign waB removed and tho
engineering numerals restored.
Thitr is tho first time in tho history J
of tho school that tho girls havo so
aBBerted themselves. Thoy did the
best job of painting over done on tho
backstop, as the engineers who re
moved the Bign testified.
The work began at 0 o'clock when
four shadowy forms in long aprons
hurried across Rollins field and began
painting the backBtop. No ladder was
needed for one co-ed was tall enough
to paint the top of the sign while the
others worked on the lower part.
The work was but half done when
two boys ran around the cinder track
and passed the backstop. In a few
minutes they returned and attempted
to converse with the girls. They were
baffled, however, until thoy took a
mean advantage and threatened to tell.
Then they were bribed with tho prom
ise of candy and other sweets not to
report the deed to the engineers.
The boys proved treacherous. No
sooner had the co-eds left the field
than they ran to gather the followers
of Saint Patrick. i
FRESHMAN GIRLS HAZE A MAN.
Shurtleff College Co-Eds Bind Sopho
more to a Tree.
Seven freshman girls in Shurtleff
college have established a precedent
by hazing, unaided, a large sophomore
Raymond Carr, a sophomore, was
beguiled afound a corner of the college
building, where he was overpowered
and bound by seven freshman girls
who were in waiting for him. Although
he fought with all his strength and
until his clothes were in rags, he was
hound recuroly to a convenient tree
where he was forced to endure the
taunts and jeers of his captors.
After enduring innumerable indig
nities at the hands of Ills' fair captors

FRESHIES j WEAR GREEN CAPS.
Chicago Sophs Run Meeting of First
Sophomores carried the freshman
meeUng-at the University of Chicago
with a high hand. The freshmen are
going to call a meeting themselves in
the near future, and are at present
making arrangements for It.
Dean Lovett opened the meeting
with a brief address on tho democ
racy of tne university, and its intol
erance of tyranny in any form. In
spite of this, Harold Smith, president
of last year's freshman class, do
dared that if the freshmen decided
against green hats, they would bo
forced to wear them.
Although indignant at this speech
the freshmen considered th e ques
tion of green caps, to promote class
spirit and distinguish them from the
sophomores. The motion was de
clared carried, without a vote being
taken. Election or officers was post
poned;" The first-year men attempted to
vote that sophomores be excluded
from all future freshman meetings,
but Chairman Smith refused to put
the question, and he declared the meet
ing adjourned, amid indignant shouts
from the freshman class.
"TATE" MATTERS MAKING GOOD.
Former Nebraska Star Plays With
"Tato" Matters, tackle on the Ne
braska football elovon in 190G and
1!)07, is back at Harvard showing tho
Easterners how well the west can
play football. Husky "Tato" Is not
eligible for tho 'varsity at tho Cam
bridge school this season, being a
freshman, but will bo groat material
for tho crimson olovon next fall, and
according to all dope of this fall will
make the team. Tho following item
from tho Boston Globe of Friday, Oc
tooer 1G, shows what "Tato" Is doing
for Nebraska and "himself at Harvard:
"After the 'varsity (Harvard) had
been excusod, tho subs and tho second
team had a rattling go. This led to
the discovery of a new football lumin
ary. He is a husky first-year student
front tho University of Nebraska, who
likes the game and who has been on
tho second squad for some time. He
seemed to havo considerable confi
dence that ho know how to play
tackle, so Coach Nosmith put him in
nt loft tackle yostorday. Ho certainly
made good. There wore holes big
enough for the second team backs to
turn around in whenever a play was
seat behind him. He was also a
power on tho defence."
SQUAD HEARS ADDRESS
MR. J. E. MILLER DI8CU88E8 COM.
MEMBERS OP f ACILTY PRESENT
Professor Fogg Arranges for Others
to Discuss Question With De
baters Practical Viewpoint
Last evening Mr. J. E. Miller of
Lincoln spoke for nearly two hours
to the debating squad or the Univer
sity of Nebraska on tho question of
the commission form of government.
Mr. .Miller was a member of tho com
mittee of the Lincoln commercial club
which recently was sent to Dos Moines
to investigate the question there.
Personally, Mr. Miller declares that he
is In favor of the commission form
It is the policy of ProfosBor Fogg
to get men prominent in affairs to
speak to the squad on tho quostlons
under discussion and thus make it
possible to supplement tho knowledge
drawn from books with tho knowledge
drawn from actual experience. Pro
fessor Aylesworth has already spoken
to the squad, And other men whoso
line of work makes it necoBsary for
them to be well informed on the com
mission form of govornment will
speak to the squad during tho next
Faculty Members Present.
Several members of tho faculty were
present at the meeting last night as
visitors. Among them wore Professors
Howard, Aylesworth, Maxoy and
In discussing the question Mr. Miller
declared that in the mind of the aver
age person the commission form of
government is not 'thoroughly under
stood and its significance appreciated.
The average person feels dissatisfied
with the government which he now
haB and takes tho commission form
of government as ho would grasp at
a straw. A largo number of people
are for it simply because it Is a
Question of Salaries.
In discussing tho question of what
kind of salaries public officers should
receive. Mr. Miller declared that ho
believed that some d'ay tho English
system of letting honor bo sufficient
reward lor public service would come
into use in America. Tho contention
that we have not got a class of Amer
ican citizens sufllclontly patriotic to
be willing to serve -tho city for tho
rs4-wl t llnll ... .1 1 a
h"uw iiii-j "" uo, involves mo as
sumption that American citizens aro
the inferior of tho citizens of other
nations in patriotism and honor, and
this Mr. .Miller declared that ho was
unwilling to admit.
On the night or the debate Nebraska
will favor the commission form of
government in tho debate at Lincoln
and will take tho- opposite Bide of the
question at Wisconsin. Each of tho
colleges In. tho league has one team
on tho affirmative and ono team on
the negative. In this way any ad
vantage which ono side of tho ques
tion may havo over tho other is made
to fall evenly upon each of tho colleges-taking
part in the debate.
