THE 'VAR8ITY FIVE MEETS THE
Y. M. C. A. TEAM.
NO ADMISSION TO BE CHARGED
8econd Game on the Schedule of the
Cornhusker Basket-ball Squad
Occurs In Armory at
Another opportunity will be given
the basket-ball enthusiasts of the uni
versity to boo the Cornhusker five in
action tonight. The 'varsity team
meets tho city Y. M. C. A. Ave In the
Armory at eight o'clock. There will
be no admlBBlon charged to the game
and evoryonc who Is Interested Is
urged to come out and get a line on
the team which Is expected to win tho
Missouri valley championship this
This will bo the second timo that
the 'varBlty Ave has appeared in a
public game this year. Tho ilrst con
Iest was th,c one with Cotner univer
sity last Saturday evening, in which
the CornhuBkers won by a score of
28 to 24. Tho game with Cotner was
merely a try-out contest and over llf
teen men played on the Nebraska
team some time during the game.
The game tonight will also be a prac
tice contest, but it is expected that
it will be a much better exhibition.
The city Y. M. ('. A. has a very fast
team this season and they expect to
make the 'varsity boys go some to
night if they win a victory. They
have played several games already
this fall, defeating tho Cotner team
by about ton points and defeating the
junior class team from the university
under the A. A. IT. rules by the deci
sive score of 81 to 11. Judging from
their showing in these games, a good
exhibition may be expected from
them. The regular center of the team,
Hiltner, turned his ankle last week
and as a consequence he will not be
ablo to play this evening.
The 'varsity team has not yet de
veloped to any extent in the matter
of team work and their showing will
depend largely in this game, as it did
against Cotner, upon the individual
work of the players. Captain Walsh
has not yet been able to return to
the game on account of quite a severe
injury in practico last week' from
which he Is still suffering.
Probable Line-up of Teams.
The probable line-up of the two
teams in tonight's contest will be as
Nebraska. Y. M. C. A.
Hutchison i. rf -. Mitchell
Wood If S. Waugh
Petrashek c Andrews
Bell rg Phillips
Perry Ig P. Waugh
Inasmuch as this Is a practice game,
the line-up will remain Intact for only
?? short time and a large number of
men will be given a thorough try-out.
The game will bo called at eight
o'clock and will be played under the
Inter-colleglate rules. These rules
this year allow a goal to be thrown
from a dribble, which, Is bound to in
crease tho roughness In the game and
as a consequence the exhibition is
more like a football game than tho
old time basket-ball contest.
Several of tho football men are try
ing out for the team now that the
football season Is over and they are
almost unanimous in the opinion that
so far as roughness is concerned, they
would .. rather play football any timo
than basket-ball as it is now played.
Sid Collins said that he had no dif
ficulty in playing tho entlro football
season through without an Injury, but
tho first night that he got out for
baskot-ball he was laid out.
Seats in the Gym.
-r'At tho meeting of the athletic
board on TueBday tho matter of con
structing bleacher seats In tho gym
nasium was brought up and was ro
ferred to tho committee on grounds
nnd buildings with authority to act.
It Is therefore very probablo that
these seats will be constructed, as
the Idea was very favorably received
by the board.
The Idea Is to build several rows
of seats the full length of the gym on
each side of the field, making tho
last row about as high as the top of
the gun rack, so that a clear view of
the floor can be had from any seat
In tho house. Last year when there
were three rows of chairs placed one
behind the other the people In the
last -row had great difficulty In seeing
nnything at all. Under the proposed
plan there will be a seating capacity
of about 800.
Manager Eager proposes to reserve
one side of the Held for the use of
students who have tne annual student
tickets. These tickets will admit
them to any seats on this side of tho
Held without any additional charge.
The seats on the other side of the
floor will bo open to the general pub
lic and to students having season
tickets for a small additional charge.
These seats will bo reserved.
There will be practically no differ
ence In the desirability of the seatB
on either side of tho floor except that
the seatB open to holders of season
tickets will not be reserved and tho
first to come will have their choice of

tho beautiful home of Prof, and Mrs.
Wilson will be thronged with those
who desire to pay their respects to
the estimable wife of the chancellor.
One for Chancellor.
On December 8 the faculty club of
the university tendered Dr. Andrews a
banquet at which over one hundred
and fifty were present nnd which was
one of the most important social
functions occurring at tho university
in some time. Shortly after the wives
of tho instructors, comprising tho
members of the women's faculty club,
planned also to give Mrs. Andrews a
reception. Sines that time tho com
mittee has been busy at work, com
pleting the final arrangements for tho

conversation will be engaged In. The
home will be specially decoratod for
the occasion, and In keeping with tho
holiday season. Bringing a.s It does,
all of the women members of the fac
ulty together at a Boclal affair, the
reception will be significant in this
respect, In addition to it being in hon
or of Mrs. Andrews. With this event,
the series of gatherings in honor of
Chancellor Andrews and his wife will
come to a close. Starting shortly
after his resignation was announced,
with a dinner to the board of regents,

Leave on Florida Trip.
Shortly after the first ot January,
Dr. and Mrs. Andrews will leave for
Florida, for the benefit of Mr. And
rews' health. They will probably
spend Borne time in the south. Be
fore they leave, however, a number
of functions will be given in honor
of them by a number of the intimate
friends of the couple. These func
tions will extend over a poriod of
three weeks. '
8XUDENTS TO LEAVE TOMORROW
Nebraskans Preparing to Leave for
Home and Good Grub.
An exodus of the Nebraska students
from Lincoln will begin tomorrow
morning when many pf the Cornhu'sk-
orp who will finish their school work
With the early classes will start for
home. All during the afternoon and
ovonlng and up to noon Saturday tho
outflow of homesick boys nnd glrlB
will continue. Somo of the students
loft yesterday and more will go to
day, but tho real rush of the anxious
ones will not bogln until tomorrow.
Tho great majority of the Nebras
kans all week have been anticipating
th Ir doparturo for home and have
been getting things ready so that they
could leavo tho city as BOon as their
school work was finished at tho end
of the week.
Activity Around Campus.
Scones around tho campus have
spoken of tho usual annual activity
and bustle bofore tho ChrlBtmas holi
days. Most of the Btudents deslro to
have all their work brought up to
dato, and thoBo who have been behind
or delayed In their studies have been
getting thorn mnde up so that they
could go hame with a clean slate and
not have the dreaded feeling of de
linquent work hanging oer their
heads during the vacation.
At the city ticket offices of the rail
roads yestorday the soiling of advance
tickets for students who are going
home tomorrow or tho next day was
begun. Tickets that are selling now
are good for passage on Friday or
Saturday. Tho Idea-of the railroads
in selling these tickets in advance
was to allow the students to avoid the
annual rush and crowd at the depots
during the last day of school before
the holidays. By purchasing tickets
oarly tho students are enabled to keep
away from tho crowded ticket win
dows at the depot or city offices at
the week end.
During the rest of the week many
dollars will bo poured Into the pockets
of boarding and rooming house keep
ers by the students, These home-going
university people will pay up the
majority of their debts bofore they
leavo the city. The landladies are
the creditors who usually get their
money first. They keep a closo tab
on the students and see that they do
not get away without settling up for
their rooms and board.
Most qf the students are glad, to
get away from Lincoln when the vaca
tion begins and aro usually pleased
to come back when the university
opens again. .
Glad to Get Away.
"I am glad,' explained a young stu
dent yestorday, "that school Is about
finished for this year, for I am mighty
tired of plugging along here without
getting home. I haven't had a chance
to get away since September, and I
long to get some of dear old mother's
grub again. This boarding house
hash which I have been living on for
the past threefnonths is hard on my
stomach and I do not beliove I could
live much longer If I did not get some
decent food again Boon. I'll tell you
about me; I am going to fill up while
I am home.
"But I suppose I shall soon got tired
of being home after I have been there
for about a week. It's been that way
ever since I have been coming to the
university. Get home tor a few days
nnd then the old town becomes sort
of lonesome, and I begin longing for
the old campus and Majestic once
again. I'm always glad, to start home
for a vacation and. am alw.ays Just as
anxious glad to get back to school
when the holidays are over."
WILL LEAVE FOR OMAHA TODAY

WILL ENLARGE SCOPE
INTEREST IN STUDENTS' DEBAT
ING CLUB INCREASING.
SUPPORT Of STUDENTS WANTED
Resolutions Passed Following 8na?py
Debate Show Attitude of Club on
What Organization Means
Realizing that Nebraska has long
felt tho nood for moro actual prac
tico In tho art of public speaking, tho
Students' Debating' Club is planning
to make an active endeavor to oncour
age tho participation of moro studonts
in tho work to which it Is dovotod. In
lesolutlons passed at a rocont moot
ing, tho club makoB plain Its doslrc
that the organization bo truly repre
sentative of all sections of tho unl
vorslty. Members of all collogcij nro
Invited to take part In its sessions.
Tho desire for renowod activity 'in
tho dobatlng club arises from tho neod
felt for trnlnlng In this lino. It hus
tomotlmes happened that dofoat hos
been the part ol NobraBka In inter
collogluto contests oven In cases
where her men had tho wolght of tho
evidence Her opponents havo often
won through their excellence 1n de
livery. That this Is truo 1 shown by
the statement of a visiting dobater
who remarked: "We Baw you had the
argument, and the facts with you. I
had to do something to win tho con
tost, so I Just jollied thO audience."
While no one advocatCB "Jollying tho
audience" aB a means to winning a
debate, yet It is felt that 'skillful de
livery would render Nebraska's work
doubly effective. '
The resolutions ndopted by tho club
laBt Saturday evonlng aro as follows:
"Whereas, The members of tho stu
dents' dobatlng club believe thatr all
members of the university should take
a live lutorest in public speaking; and,
"Whereas, This club la tho only
university organization existing solely
for" this purpose; therefore,
"Bo It resolved, That thla club, as
heretofore, extend to all students, so
ciety or non-society fraternity ot
non-fraternity, in all tho collegoa, a
cordial Invitation to attend and tnke
an active part in its meetings each
Saturday evening at 7:30 in U,-106.'
At tho meeting last Saturday tho
subject debated was not a now one.
Tho Ideas presented wore in part new,
however, and quite logically treated.
Mr. Foster and Mr. Brant championed
woman's right to voto. Mr. Warren
and Mr. Negloy contended that wo
men's powerful Influence in tho home
made it quite unnecessary to add
the ballot to her burdens, Tho judges,
handed down a decision for tho affirm
ative. The debate was practically won
and lost in tho rebuttal, which showed
more life and Interest than tho. direct
arguments. Tho club critic called at
tention to a few principles of debate
and pointed out some good and somo
Plan for Future.
Tho club Is entertaining a sugges
tion that an oratorical contest bo held
in the near future with somo small
prize to stimulate interest' The sug
gestion has thus far met with con
Tho subject for the next debate,
Which will ocdur January 9, and tho
names of the speakers, will bo placed
on the bulletin board In the main' hall
in tho near future.
Manager Earl O. Eager will prob
ably spend part of the Christmas holi
days out of the city. Ho may mako
a trip hack oast. ''
