Agree on Date.
Nebraska and Ames havo come to
an agreement on a dato for their
annual football gamo next fall and vll
meet in Amos on November 13, tho
date which Manager Eager hold out
for and which tho nggio management
for a while declined to accept;.
Amos wanted to play tho' cornhusk
ers on November C, for they had a
game with Iowa scheduled for a week
hater. Nebraska, however, has a con
test booked with-Kansas for tho 6th
and could not bo released from play-
,ng on tlmt dato wlth tho jayhawkers.
Tho aggleB had no otllor open dQto on
tho schedule on which, tho two teams
could got together, bo it waB Impera
tive that they shift their. Iowa con
test to Novomber G.
When the Iowa authorities learned
of tho differences betweon thoir two
sister Institutions they at once inter
vened for tho -sake of harmony nnd
offered to meet Amos on Novomber 6
so that tho cornhuskerB could havo
tho Saturday va week later with tho
With Iowa" taking such a position it
would havo been folly for Ames to
havo held out longer for another date
than Novombor 13, and yesterday
morning In a conversation with Pro
fessor Ryers ofAmes over the long
diBtanco telephone Manager Eager se
cured the consent of tho aggie man
ager to play on November 13.
Tho gapio'next'fall.wllt take , place
in Ames because of the two year con
tract which the two schools' have for
an annual game. . Last fall, the first
season of tho contract, tho aggies
vore under agreement to come to
Lincoln, The game was transferred
to Omaha, however, at the ren." of
tho cornhusker management ,Next
soason It will bo Nebraaka's turn to
Journey to Ames, and unless the ag
gies consent to another change In the
placo for the contest, Omaha w.ill be
denied tho treat of, seeing Ames and
Nebraska this year. t Nebraska; s is
willing tovplay in Omaha and would
like to have the -game pulled off in
that city. It is not likely, though, that
tho Amoa management; wjll consent
to transferlng thq game from their
town to Omaha, for it is the only big
,gamo thoy have scheduled, for homo,
and thoir students would hardly stand
for taking it away, . ,
Tho scheduling of the Ames -gamo
closea up deals for two big games for
tho cornhuskers next fall. The other
gamo that has been artanged is the
annunl fray with' Kansas, 'which ,1s
to bo held In Lincoln, Novombor
tho wook boforo the meeting ..with
Amos, Thcso two schools aro mot on
succeeding Saturdays noxt sonson,
just as thoy wore last year. Last fall
Amos was playod,s.flrBt"'and Kansas
socoond; next season Kansas will
come first" and Ames will follow n
week lator. I'
Point for. Kansas, ,
This agreoment. will give tho corn
luiBkors an oxcellont chanco to bo in
fine shapo for Kansas, the team that
tho local students want to defeat moro
than any other next fall. Nebraska's
defeat at the hands of the jayhawkers
last Beason was attributed to tho stale
ncsB which followed tho playing of tho
Amos gamo in Omaha. That meeting
with the aggios had boon looked upon
ns the big gamo of tho year and tho
cornhuskora woro pointed for it. After
winning out against tho aggies they
took a, slump whichrfiodo them cnBy
proy for KanBasn wook later.
Noxt fall the big gamo on tho noxt
BcheduloMVill bo tho clash with Kan-
sas.To tho winning of that contest
all" tho efforts of tho olovon will be
directed. Tho studonts now fool that
the defeat of fast Beason must be
avenged and they do not . caro what
loams the cornhuskers allow to defeat
thomJuBt co long as thoy trounce tho
Jayhawkers. Ames, a week atfor Kan
sas is playqd, ,1s not tho most import
ant contest for next fall; Kansas must
bo dofeated first. Thon Ames will
receivo consideration. The studonts
say, "Better bo stale for Amos than,
to loso to Kansas. Lot the cornhusk
era point to tho winning of the Kan-
sas gamo. Thon if that Is accomp
lished and stalencsB attacks tho men
and Ames wins wdrwlll not fool so
very soro' about It. But by all means
Kalians must be defeated."
Work In Shops Progressing on Brick

Tho rattleije are of standard dosign,
of tho typo approved for the testing

Tho rattlers possess many points of
superiority jYor tho machines rogu

will give tho university very corn"-

about $40 each. This typo of rattier
is the ono required by tho various
cities in their ordinances to provldo
for testing paving brick, and tho
city of Lincoln has in tho past been
in tho habit of using tho university's
facilities for tho testing of ltspavlng

GIRLS' ANNUAL ROMP
INTER-CLASS BASKET-BALL MEET
SOPHOMORES WIN GLASS GAMES
8ENIOR8 BEAT JUNIORS BUT SEC
OND YEAR GIRLS BEST.
Parade of Class Societies One of Feat
ures of the Meet of Co-eds In Unl
verslty Gymnasium Yester
Tho sophomoro girls' basketball
team won tho annual inter-class meet
In tho univorBlty gymnasium yester
day afternoon. In tho preliminaries
tho seniors won "from tho juniors and
tho sophomores boat tho freshmen.
Tho final gamo resulted In a scoro of '
10 to 6 for tho sophomoro girls,
, Full of tho ridiculous and yet with
a strong undercurrent of excitod com
petition beneath all tho tun, tho girlB'
annual tournamont was dxcocdingly
entertaining to thoso attonding. From
start to finish there was something
doing nil tho timo. Unique stunts
were tried In tho parado which pro
ceeded tho games and tho contests
themselves woro full of oxcitoment.
Fully as entertaining as1 In the' past,
tho. parade of tho class sociotlos led
off tho program. Tho'proccsslon was
headed by tho XI Deltas of tho sopho
more class disguised in tho natty uni
forms of- the university cadet band.
The senior -Black Masques followed;
carrying as th6irsmascot a handsome
black Angora vat and with brooms as
a further Insignia of "their order.
Following tho Black Masauos came
tho ghostly forms of tho Silver Ser
pents bonring a long green snake, Tho
XI Ejolta mascot, a small Ethiopian;
rodo in state in a chariot of blue and
gray. Tho freshmen dragged an un
willing pig In hopes that it would bo
a good luck omon for their class. ,
Games Hotly Contested.
Tho first game played was between
tho seniors and the Juniors. It was
Hotly contested and was anybody's
game until the last goal was thrown7.
In tho first half the juniors wore badly
outclassed. They dame back strong
in the second half, but the early lead
could not bo overcome. Tho score
finally stood 12 to 11 in, tho seniors'
favor. For the seniors, Isabelle Wolfo,
the captain, played a star game. The
guarding of Marlon Horton was tho
cause of much applause Tho playing
of tho juniors was uniformly good..
Thb freshman-sophomore gamp was
faster than the first contest and for
tho most tfart close. The freshmen
were-especially strong in tho work of
their captain, Janet Stephenson.
Louise Barr at center was also re
sponsible for, some go6a work. The
goal, throwing of Hattio Rollings and
the clever passing of the rest of the
team was too much for the freshmen
combination, however, and the score
was finally 11 to 8 for the sopho
mores. The final game between the seniors
and tho sophomores threatened to be
a. walk away for the latter, the scorb
at the end of the first half being 6
to 0 In their favor. In the second half
two field and two free goals brought
the senior score up to G, making the
final score 10 to 6.
The Cat Did It.
Ono of the spectacular features of
tho meet occurred .when the black
cat 0f tho seniors stuck out its tongue
at the green snake of the juniors in
spiteful challenge. TJhe cat was at
once captured by the Silver Sorpentri.
This was something the Blgok
Masques could hot permit and they
.descended ii a body, at length recov
