That Battle Royal.
The ruling "in regard to the main
ovont, the battle royal, is somowhat
complicated, but 1b fully explained In
the following article:
The two classes will stand facing
each other oxtehded across tho foot
hall Hold, with one foot upon tho
middle cross line of the flold. The
first five yard lino back oTf each class
will be tho goal line of that class,
the Idea of tho fight is to pull or draw
Vour opponent back acrosB your own
goal line, whore they are considered
down and out and are withdrawn
froiri the contest, but an upper clans
man official, of whom there will b-
twenty on each side. There will bo
three ten-minute bouts of these na
ture, the boiit being won' by the class
lulling thomo8t men acrosB their
own goal line
al tle endfMnlpJti.QT
clasn wlnnlnc two out I other than that which they tnbmselve'I
minutes. Tho clasB winning two out
of the three bouts will be declared
the winner. A man Is outside or over
his opponent's goal line when he has
both feet acrosB and Is not still held
by one of his own side who Is lnsldo
of tho lino. Any manv caught using
the "strangle hold" or slugging will
be disqualified and barred from tho
rest of the contest
The Marathon race will be, over a
three-mile course, starting at, Fair
view at nine-thirty prompt, and fin
ishing at tho park at the grandstand.
Each contestant must be at Falrvlpw
at 9:30 promptly in order that the

PRACTICE fOR KANSAS
BIQ RALLY HELD IN THE CHAPEL
MUCH SPIRIT IS MAINTAINED
The Comhusker Eleven Are In tho
Best Physical Condition They
Have Enjoyed 8lnce the
Great Gopher Game.
Uist evening at G o'clock a rousing
rally vas hold In Momorlal hall to
practlco songs and yolls for tho Kan
sas game on Saturday.
As a ruio nt thoso rallys thero have
Leon several speeches delivered by
prominent faculty mombors, coaches,
players, etc., and undor such circum
stances It Ib not surprising that consid
erable enthusiasm should be manifest
ed. Speoches on such occasions aro
unusually inspiring in tholr effect and
tho presence of players who have been
Instrumental In making such a great
record for this year's Nebraska team;
men who have grown to a position In
which they aro regarded as Idols; tho
presence and words of tueso mon aro
calculated to extract great enthusiasm
from tho students.
But when the chapel can be packod
with students'of both soxos, at the In
convenient hour of 5 o'clock, for .the
solo purpose of practicing songs and
yollH, . when students will throng to
this sort of thing, which requlros exer
tion and in many cases sacrifice, with
furnish; wnon the "students respond so
heartily, and earnestly to this kind of
tnlng, it can bo truly said that a gen
uine college spirit Is growing at Ne
braska. Dr. Condra 8peaks.
After tho band had played a rouBlng
march Dr. Condra mounted tho plat
form and gave a short addresB to tho
students, which was full of earnest
ness, sincerity and spirit which ho is
so conscientiously trying to transplant
into the hoarts of Nebraska people
Tho effect of Dr. Condra's work this
fall 1b very apparent and it is a pleas
ure to note the success which Is at
tending his efforts.
Ho began by expressing his sincere
regret at having been unnblo to attend
the Ames game last Saturday. Duties
in connection with the convention of
Nebraska teachors last week compelled
him to remain in Lincoln, and he' said
that he envied everyone who had tho
privilege of attending so great a con
test, To him It -was aimoBt a punish
montto remain, but ho relieved him
self of It as much as possiuie by hear
ing alltho telegraph roportsoi tho
AtOmaha, although a goodly dolega-"
tloh wont up from Lincoln, tho rooting
was not so well organized or so effec
tive as it has been on other occasions.
Tho fact that tho rooters wero not
seated together, but wero scattered all
over the south stands, is largely re
sponsible for thja, however, and this
handicap will not have to bo contended
with at tho Kansas game Saturday.
Tomorrow the rooters will all bo seat
ed together in tho north stands and
tnoy oxpoct to uso the songs and yells,
which 'were practiced yesterday, to ad
Tho football squad practiced at the
farm again fast evening and had the
last .scrimmage, work, which will be
givo'n them beforq they ,lino up against
the' Jayhawkors tomorrow afternoon
at 2;30. fTho scriinmago work for the
most part consisted of punting, giving
tho 'varsity practlco both offonslvo
and dofonslvo on kick formations.
Very Httlo rough work has boon
given the men by Coach Colo this
wock, ns ho wishos to uavo thorn In
tip-top shapo for tomorrow's game.
Both Chaloupka and Boltzor wero
out at practlco yostorday and it is bo
lleved that tho toam will be in hotter
shapo tomorrow thanhit any time Btnco
the Minnesota game.
