fINAL MEETING HELD
SOPHS ,AND FRE8HIE8 ARRANGE
FOR A CLA8H.
APPEAR TO BE A BIG SUCCESS
From the Interest Taken by the Men
the Battle Royal Will Draw
Three THundred Students
In the Fight.
Last night representative from the
Hophomoro and freshman cIu'osgb held
a meeting In Dr. Condra'B office to
complete final arrangements for tho
p.nuual clash hotweon tho two classes.
Prom tho Interest manifested at the
mooting it wad assured that tho
"Olympics" are a go, and will draw a
big crowd to Antelopo park on Satur
day mdrnlng when thL fight takes
Tho question of eligibility of tho
fresliman lawB was again taken up
and discussed, no definite decision
having been arrived at By a previous
ruling or tho eligibility commlttoo,
thoBO memhers of tho freshman law
class who had advanced work-were
allowed to participate with the sopho
mores, while all of tho rest were In
cluded In the, ranks of tho freshmen.
Tho sophomores Insisted that this was
an Injustice since tho freshman class
outnumbered the sophomoreB greatly.
Tho question will bo decided today,
A Big Rally.
Friday night at 5 o'clock, providing
there. Is no conflict with tho football
rally, tho sophomores are planning
upon a big rally to bo held in .Mo
moVlal hall. At tho meeting spoeoheB
will be made. Tho sophomore -try-outa
will be held tonight at tho gym
nasium, and all men who expect to
participate In tho wrestling, boxing
and cross country evonta must'roport.
Tho tug-of-war team Is being picked
from tho heavy -men of the class.
Albert Poole has been appointed cap
tain of this toam, whllo some Of tho
other members aro 'Curtis, Collins,
Stunner, HaBcall,' Pattlson, TIndall,
Bllott and Sadlleck. In tho cross
country team, Reed, Dlnsmore, Mol
llck, Drake, Ratcliff, and Graham
have been showing up prominently.
Thq- croBs-country team for tho Mara
thon race will comprise five members
from each class. Elliott, Sadllolok,
Collins and aeveral othors havo been
training for the wrestling match and
promlBO to make It Interesting for
tho freshman who chanco to oppose
thorn. In boxing, not many have en
tered and-tho list Is still incomplete.
Tho closing event, Vtlio battle royal,"
Is sure to bring out almost every
sophomore and freshman In the two
classes, and a good climax to tho
games s certain. In preparing for
, thp last event, students aro especially
warned to wear old Clothing. The
committee has decided that any rough
play will result in a foul, and a pos
sible award to tho. opposing side By
rough play, however, tho commlttoo
moans kicking, alugglngor any other
similar unsportsmanlike fighting.
Wrestling and pushing are encouraged
and. the" rougher tho battle can be
without poriouB injuries to tho par
ticipants the more successful the clash
wijl' bo. The committee .desire1 above'
alii things that it he understood that'
tho' fight Ib to bo no tamo- affair, but
rather a healthy college" contest such
asv'bno finds carried on in tho eastern
outs will bo held tho latter -part of
the weok. Tho freshmon havo a num
ber of boofy men, all of whom should
bo able to rojider a good account of
themselves in tho class fight In
point of numbers they havo a big ad
vantage over tho sophomores,' but tho
latter hopo to dofoat this by a su
It is very probablo that a rooting
squad will bo organized among tho
girls of tho sophomore class, , who" will
attend the fight in a body and lend to
tho Class spirit by songs and yells.
Tho fight Is now well undor way,
and except forftomo unforeseen ovent
nothing can prevent it from boing n
big success. Every sophomorO and
every freshman owes It to his class
to get out and do -what ho can at
least to tako part In tho "battlo
royal." The quostlon as to whether
Nebraska students can havo their his
toric class fights is up boforo tho stu
dents and their action of Saturday
will decide It

Tho Cornhuskor band of warriors
was in poor enough condition when
thoy wont Into tho Ames gamo, but
they aro ovon worse now. Howovor,
there Is no ono who 1b seriously in
jured and it is hoped that tho Ne
braska toam will put up a hotter front
against tho Jayimwkors noxt Satur
day than thoy havo been able to ipro
Bent slnco before tho Iowa gamo.
Tho contest with tho Amos Aggies
wbb ono of tho florcost over played
on a western gridiron, yet both teams
came out of it without any serious
injuries. Nearly overy ono was protty
stiff, howovor, aftor that awful strug
gle and several of tho playors have
failed to put in an appearance at
practice oven yet. Bill Chaloupka
was pretty badly battered up boforo
the end of tho contest and ho has not
recovered sufficiently yet to don a
suit and got out for practice, but it
Is expected that ho will be able to
show up today or tomorrow at tho
latest Throughout tho gamo Satur
day "Big Bill" was continually pulling
oft spectacular plays and It is not sur
prising, that ho should havo con-
'traded -a few bumps and bruises.
Little Heavy Work.
In all probability vory llttlo heavy
work will bo indulgod In by tho 'var
sity this weok. ThlB is the time of
the season when playors are apt to
go stalo and it Is the intention of
Coach Cole to avoid if possible any
such catastrophe. Tho Cornhuskors'
schedule this season is tho hardest
ono -which has ever boon nrrangod for
a Nebraska team and this fact makes
tho tusk of keeping tho players in
condition an extra hazardous ono.
The schedule this year called for
oloven games, .six of which, Minne
sota, Iowa, Ames, Kansas, Wabash,
and Carlisle, aro about as hard con
tests as could bo arranged for any
team. Two of tho othor flvo, Haskoll
and Grinnoll, wero anything but prac
tice games, while ho remainder, only
threo In numbor, Peru, Doano and
Hastings, aro all that can be regarded
as pasyk contests for Nebraska.
Considering" the limited number of
players of university caliber who aro
at "King" Colo's disposal for this dis
couraging array of contests, it is no
wonder that the coach is inclined
periodically to bo pessimistic over tho
ultimato outcome of the season.
Success Is Assured.
Tho excellent showing of tho Corn
huBkers so far. this season has been
something of a 'surprise when one
stops to consider the, difficulties which
have confronted Coach Cole and his
pupils. The fact that tho Univorslty
has no flold has done much to Injuro
the CornhuBkor prospects by cutting
to UBk If ho has Buccoodod so fof and
it boglns to look as If success for tho
remainder of tho season was assured.
Tho Juyhawkors will como to Lin
coin next Saturday couchod to defend
tho various stylos of play which tho
Cornhuskors havo oxhlblted this year,
and thoy aro hopoful of showing
KIng" Colo's pupils up. -.
The Kansas backs aro said lo ho
particularly adept in tho ubo of tho
forward pasn and as tho Cornhuskors
also excel in this .department, Satur
days game is oxpoctcd to bo Just as
spectacular, if such a thing is possi
ble, as waB tho AmcB contest in
