Interest Is Centered in the Election of
Captain for Next Year's Team,
Which Will Be Decided at
Today's Meeting.
The Y. M. C. A. bn8lot-lmll Ave de
feated the university team last even
ing In the armory by the score of 34
to 16. The game was fiercely played
throughout and rough playing was In
dulged in by both sides. It was a
fair example of what the game under
the new rules can become. Jt Is
doubtful if such a rough game was
ever played on the armory floor be
fore; It resembled football more than
It did basket-ball and frequently play
ers would be run into and thrown
violently as they are on the gridiron.
Although there are two officials pro
vided for in this year's rulos, yet they
were not able to prevent unnecessary
roughness, oven though they called a
great many fouls. Tho varsity play
ers seemed to go in for rough play
a little more than the Y. M. C. A. men
did, probably on account of the fact
that they have not been "called" for
such tactics very strictly in practice.
Strong Team Work.
The Y. M. C. A. five excelled par
ticularly In team work. Thoy were
able to carry the ball down the lloor
with greater success and their guard
ing wus first class. At shooting bas
kets the Waugh brothers and I). Mit
chell did great work for the Y. M.
team. Each of them contributed four
Held goals und in addition Fred Waugh
threw five free trials at' goal from
'the varsity team was considerably
weakened by the absence of Captain
Walsh at right forward, who is still
suffering from an injury received In
practice last weok. Tho work of Aug.
Schmidt, who iillel this position was
vory good, but he failed to come
through with a bunch of spectacular
plays which may usually bo looked for
from tho lanky captain. It was ex
pected that Hutchison would be played
at torwaid In the absence of Walsh,
but ho did not go Into tho game at
all. It Is reported that he Is tempor
arily delinquent In school work.

Election of Captain.
Tho election of a football captain
for uoxt season's team will tako placo
at tho Armory this noon. Tho method
used In electing the captain Is tq al
low all of this season's "N" men to
vote. Thoro wore fourteen letters
awarded to the following men: Cap
tain Harvey, Johnson, Chalouqka,
Frum, Harto, Ewlng, Collins, Cooke,
Bentley, BIrkner, Kroger, Temple,
Minor, and Boltzor.
These men will be eligible to vote
for' next year'B captain at this noon's
meeting. According to tho instruc
tions which thoy rocoived, thoy will
havo to roach a decision bofora thoy
leavo tho building and not lot tho
thing hang fire n it did last year for
several weeks. Eight votes will ho
nocossary for election.
Tho two men who havo so far an
nounced thomsolves as candidates for
the captaincy are Sidney Collins nnd
Sidney Frum. Thoy havo both played
on tho 'varsity for two years and are
players of unquestioned ability, and
either of them vottld without a doubt
make a good captain.
According to the present dope, the
vote will be seven to seven on the
first ballot. It is possible that, if
both sides are obstlnnte In clinging
to their candidate, It will be neces
sary to compromise on some other
available man. Others who have been
talked of for the place are llarto.

possibility is that the team, in the
case of a deadlock, will refer the mat
ter of fleeting a captain to the athletic

which is being charged for othei

hops given at the Lincoln so far havoj
cost $1.25. Some of the members
thought that tho Juniors should lower
their prices to a dollar. In reply to
this, Air. Alonson said that he had
looked Into the matter carefully and
had decided that the dollar and a
quarter was to be preferred. lie
called the committee's attention to tho
fact that no dance at the Lincoln had
been a success at $1.25, and that to
pay expenses it would be necessary to
have about 100 couples on the lloor.
At the same price at Fraternity hall
he explained that he could furnish tho
best of everything and pay expenses

Notices of two scholarships for
women were received yesterday by
Dr. Betsey and posted on tlio Botan
ical bullotln boards. One of these no
tices is issued by the Naples Tablo
association for promoting laboratory
research by women. Tho association
was formed in 1898 to promote scien
tific resenrch among women and all
appointments are made by tho execu
tive committee. The association also
announces a prlzo of $1,000 for the
best thesis written by a Avoman on a

of the value of $1,200, open to women
holding tho degree of doctor of philos
ophy, or thoae similarly equipped for

larger number.
Another feature or the work which

to that end have already been taken
and the matter will be pushed Imme
diately after vacation. Last year tho

people will be studied, their religion
and .habits of live will be looked into,
and methods ofbetterlng their condi

lepresentlng the university In the va
rious InterscholtiBtlc contests, saying
that Nebraska had competed In the
past successfully with some of the
strongest colleges and unlvorsltlos In
every line of student activity. Ho ox
pressed great pleasure In that the
football, baseball and debating teams
had been accoided complimentary

prom was to be changed to another
date, coming later In tho year, Chair
man Alexander ofthe "prom commit
tee" Insisted that the danco would bo
held on thq date originally decided
upon, February G, at the Lincoln hotol.
Just how tho rumor circulated that
wc were going to postpone tho dance
started, 1 cannot understand' said
Air. Alexander, when asked regarding
tho matter. As a matter of fact no
basket-ball game is BOt for February
5, so that evening will bo open to
the prom and there will be no inter
ference from any other university
function. Tho original schedule of the
basket-ball team called for a game
with the Jayhawkers on that ovenlng,
but owing to conflicts that dato was

Students Show Appreciation of the

paclty yesterday morning to accom
modate tho students who wished to
hear 'Handel's Alosslah. This has como
to bo one of tho big musical events of
the year nnd tho crowd which filled
the hall shows that the students ap
preciate it.
Airs. Raymond deserves the highest
credit for tho way in which tho event,
was conducted yesterday morning,
With as complicated a program as this
it is worthy of more than passing no
tice that everything passed off In per
fect order and in such a way that tne
magnificence of tho music could be
appreciated to tho highest degree by
thoso who were present.

Crowds at the Depot.
Anticipating that there would -b3
large crowds at the depot, tho agents
or several of tho roads announcod n
mile of tlcketH for the holidays yes
terday, so that students might pur
chase their tickets before going to tho
depot "Und thus preventing conges
tion. Farly last evening almost ovory
train leaving the city contained
groups of happy students anxious to
arrive at their nomes with tho least
possible delay. Of all tho happy
events of his university course which
the freshman looks forward to, is tho
two weeks which he Is permitted to
spend at home paring Christmas and
New Years. Second onty to this is
his desire to get back after having
(pen! several days iu a country town,
with nothing to do but to tako llfo

It Is with almost as great a feeling
ol relief that tho studont welcomes
his return to the unlvorslty. In spite
ol the good times, and tho homo care,
he generally conies to Jook forward
t(. the old room and the boarding
huusp geiib as a part of his lifo. Sat
isfied with two weeks of mother's
cooking, he returns again to put up
for another semester with the boarl-Ihg-house
bill of fare.
Students -Do Shopping.
With their arms full of parcels, and
their suit cases packed tho students
thow that thoy have taken advantage
of tho bargains offered by Lincoln
merchants, who announce their stocks
through the columns of the Nebras
kan. A Lincoln merchant made tho
statoment yesterday "that his student
trade this year was tho heaviest for
several years," Everyone seemed to
want to buy, and in most cases the
purchases wore substantial ones.
With a lnrger and more completd as
sortment to pick from, tho students
desire to lay in their Christmas pres
ents bofore they reach home at prices
tho same or lower than ithey could be
purchased In tho smaller towns.
By this evening the canipus will bo
largely descried and by Saturday

will bo tho fow who remain behind to
mnko 'up back work pr ,those who liavd
their home In Lincoln. The effect of
tho students leaving Lincoln for, thq
holidays is noticeable oven away
from the campus, and. the boarding
nnd rooming houses will' welcome
their return to the city.
