MANY NEW GREEKS
FRATERNITIES PLEDGE LARGE
NUMBER OF FRESHMEN.
SATURDAY WAS A BUSY DAY
Delinquency in Studies Cut Off a Few
Prospective Pledges but the
New Ruling Admits
Following alx weeks of the moBt
BtrenuouB rushing, nenrly forty fresh
men were pledged Saturday uy mo
eleven different fraternities In the uni
versity. It was a busy day for the
Greek Jotter men and. In several casos
where tho men were being rushed by
several bunrfieB, he was the object
of the most lavish attention Saturday.
Automobile rldos, dinner parties and
other amusements resulted In many
frcBhmen putting on the ribbons be
fore noon. The UBual routine life of
the fraternity men was thrown asido
and tho chapter houses hummed with
life and anticipation. Doors were
thrown open and sumptuous spreads
prepared with which to gain the favor
of the much rushed first year men.
As waB oxpected, delinquency cut in
seriously upon tho list of now men
pledged. However the number was
largoly augmented by the passago of
tho rule which allowed freshmen who
had succosBfully passed in twelve
hours of work to pledge. In spite of
tho new rule, though there was quite
a number who were unable to put on
i lie ribbons Saturday.

ARRANGING FOR JUNIOR PROM.
Committee Plans Elaborate Features
for February 5.
The junior prom commltteo met last
wool; for the discussion and decision
of matters relating to the "biggest"
dance given by the cIbbs during its
four years. No definite arrangements
have been completed as yet but tho
commltteo in charge are considering
soverar features which if carried out
will make the dance a very worthy
one. Comparisons with junior proms
of other schools uro being made and
it is quite probable that the prom of
this year will have characteristic feat
ures of those given by, tho largo east
ern schools, nt which lunch nnd re
freshments are served during the eve
ning and at which also there Is an
attendance of prominent alumni nnd
The prom will be held In the now
convention hall of the Lincoln hotel
which is said to be one of tho most
artistically finished In the west. Walt's
orchestra has been engaged and the
date has been decided upon for Feb
ruary fi, the week JiiBt after tho se
Tho junior prom is considered as
one of the more important events' in
university social circles of many
schools. Wisconsin Is said to bo per
hapB tho most elaborate in propara-
tion for it, and has an average at- m practice, thinking that a more gen
tendance of about six hundred persons C1l Interest in football might thus be
exclusive of faculty members. Col
leges of the eastern states make the
event long looked forward to and the
groat social happening of tho year.
The committee in charge of the prom
this year hope to mako a "favorable
comparison with tho proms held by
other colleges, and will do everything
In its power to make It so.

tions on tho resignation of Chancellor

ists in nearly all universities and col
leges but which Nebraska has never
had heretofore. Its duties are Indicat
ed in tho title.

IN SECRET PRACTICE
CORNHU8KER8 GETTING READY
FOR "LITTLE GIANTS."
SENIORS AND JUNIORS TODAY '
tCoach Cole Orders Secret Practice at
Antelope Park for the Rest of
Season Good Chance to
Secret practice Is' now the word at
Antelope park and every afternoon tho
CornhuBkcr squad assembles there to
put in some nard licks In final prep
aration for the game with tho "Little
Giants" from Wabash college on
Thnnksglvlng day. Last Friday for
I he first tlmo UiIb season Coach Colo
had the gates at Antelope park closed
and the Inquisitive public was denied
tho privilege of watching tho Corn
buskers go through their tricks. The
coach has several reasons for adopting
this policy, which he has so recently
put into practice. In tho first place
he doesn't care to tako any chances
on allowing the pet formations, which
he Is teaching his pupils for tho re
maining games of the season, to be
found out by persons who might use
them against the Cornhuskers. Pre
vious to the Knnsns game no secret
practice was held In tno Nebraska
camp, and consequently considerable
significance lias been attached to the
fact that tho Jayhawkers wore so fa
miliar with "King" Cole's formations.
When the access to practice Is free
to all It would be a comparatively
easy matter for anyone with designing
intentions to take noteB on the now
formation which the coach has do
vised and Hfud them to Nebraska's
All season long the coach has per
mitted everyone who wished to come
out to tho park and watch tho team
aroused among the students. How-
over, this privilege has beon run Into
tho ground during tho past fow weoks
and considerable annoyance has been
caused to the players and coach by
the spectators crowding out on to th'e
field and around tho players. This,
together with the reason previously
mentioned, has forced Coach Cole to
declare secret practice probably for
tho remainder of the season.
Coach at Minnesota.
Coach Cole returned from Minne
apolis Sunday evening where ho wit
nessed tho game between the Gophers
nnd the Carlisle Indians last Satur
day. Ho reports that tho gamo was a
groat -"exhibit but expresses tho belief
that tho Cornhuskers have a lighting
chance of defeating the redskins In
tho great post-season gumo. Tho
coach says that MlnnoBota played a
groat game, a much hotter exhibition
than they put up against the Nebraska
teanr live weoks a"go, and that thoy
won the contest fairly and squaroly.
For tno first tlmo Minnesota depended
largely upon tho open style of piny to
win tho gnme. Never since tho open
stylo of play has comolnto existence
has D"r. Williams used It to any groat
oxtont but his continued failure to de
velop a team of world-beaters which
tho Minneapolis enthusiasts demanded
has created considerable discussion ng
to tho advisabllty of retaining him In
the capacity of coach. As a conse
quence Dr. Williams felt that It was
up to him to win the Carlisle game
Saturday and he had to mako good.
Tho coach says that the Indians
dfd not put up their strongest -front
against tho Gophers. Their star quar
terback, BalentI, who has played such
a spectacular game all season and who'
kicked four field goals for thorn In tho
Annapolis game, took no. part1 In tho
game at all, and . Captain B.' Housor
wob put out of the gamo after tho first
five minutes on account" pf roughing
the referee. This weakened the In
dians considerably and they exhlbltod
, Hashes of their old style game only
It Is believed tmit the redskins will
have an easy task of defeating tin?
St. Louis aggregation on Turkey day
"1 Hint thoy will use several substi
tutes in tno gaino. In this ease the
will come to Lfhcoln In first cIuhh phy
slcnl condition and thoy will coiiho
qiuully be able to put up their best
game against tho CornhusTtorH. Concn
Cole believes that If we come out of
the Wnhash gamo next-Thursday with
out any serious InjurloH wo shall stand
a good show of winning from tho reds.
i If those two games could be won tho
sting of the Kansns defont would h.
practically wipod out.
Class Game Today.
This afternoon at 1:30 the seniors
and tno Junior class teams will meet
In the final game of tho Inter-class
football scries. Up to dafe thoro havo
been two games played; tho sopho
mores defeatod tho juniors by a Bcoro
of ( to 5, and tho souiors defoatcd the
Hophonioros by tho scoro of 11 to 0.
IT the seniors win this nftornoon thoy
will have a clear tltlo to tho Inter-
class championship but if thoy roose

The seniors havo all along neon con
