the only two candidates for the sec

sion, between' two morning classed
some law. students in a jofcW' mood
posted a notice in tho law college
calling upon all loyal laws to vote
for one of their number for the soph

men, at which Nyo Morehouse of Fre

The fact that the laws had nomi

spread rapidly about tho campus and"

former vlpo-president of tho" class,

Lynn Lloyd concluded the loraina

as a loyal worker in the class, who

standing as freBhmon laws. Ho' did
not bellovo that a triplo class mem

Unwilling to tako tho rosponslbjlity
tor such a docislon tho chair put' the
question to the class. The motion to
admit senior acadomlcs registered as
first-year laws was carried by a small
majority, the, seniors themselves vot

was takon on Morohouso and Coulter.
Before tho second ballot wa'B col

that no ballot be considered valid

Practice Not Encouraging.
The preparation of tho Nebraska
players for tho scries has been rather
disappointing In some respects. Tho
men have failed to dovelope as they
should have done. Dr. Clapp has
worked with thorn dkurlng tho 'past
two weeks and thoy havo boon kept
at parctlco In tho gymnasium, but
thoy do not seem to bo playing any
better ball than thoy did on tho occas
ion of the visit of the gophers hero
Tho goal tossing of tho team Is
still a weak department of their 'work,
nnd unless tho forwards get to cag
ing tho ball with greater accuracy
tho Nebraska totals In tho games with
tho Jayhawkers will not bo very
large. Nebraska has been weak 'In
goal tosalng all season and It had
been hoped thnt the men would get
to doing better with tholr throwing by
the time of thofchamplonshlp series.
In team work, though, tho corn
huskers havo Improved and are now
working together In tho best form of
the winter. If they continue tbolr
team work as exhibited during tho
last few days thoy ought to bp able
to mnto tlip Kansas players work

Nebraska students havo not, given

will not elvo up nil hope until the
