But with these exceptions the 1909
Cornhusker Is Jn the hands of its read
ers and their opinion as to its quality
was rendered yesterday.
"The best ye't," was tho common
expression among those who had read
the book. Others who had not per
sued' It carefully were equally well sat
isfied with a few hasty glances here
idjthere. From evory point of view
JKbook seems to have been a buc-
''ceslT if student bplnlon countB for
anything. General arrangement and
minor details alike are worked out to
excellent advantage- and nothing- was
spared in the way oX expense or ef
fort to make the publication worth the

The Nebraska tennis team which
went up against the Kansas veterans
at Lawrence Friday and Saturday,
managed to secure an even break in
doubles but lost the singles to the
The weather for the play was excep
tionally good, but the new courts at
Lawrence made the ball difficult to
handle for. the Nebraska men. The
teams were very evenly matched with
the exception of Watson of Kansas,
who is probably the best player- in
the Missouri valley. Smith played a
beautiful Igame In the singles and
Flowers and Smith did some effective
work In tho doubles.
I The scores for the contest in doubles
are as follows: WatBon and BIglew,
defeated Weaverling and Hubbel, 6-2,
6-3, 6-4. Flower and Smith defeated

SUCCESS Of THE YEAR
8TENIOR PLAY PROMI8E8 TO
THE BE8T OF 8EA80N.
SPECIAL SCENERY BEING MADE
The Plot of the Play Is Laid
Imaginary Country and Some
what Resembles That of
With one of tho strongest casts ever
picked from a senior class "Tho Royal
Family," tho senior play to appear at
the Oliver theater, Juno 8, promises
to bo one of the successes of the
school year. The cast Is working hard
and effectively at the finer touches
in their parts and with the material
at hand will put on such a play as has
never before been seen at Nebraska.
The play Is one of Charles Froh
man's successes and is a comedy
throughout. Miss Howell who hab
charge of the play expresses herself as
more than pleased with the work of
the members of the class who take
part. Tho work of Guy Montgomery
who takes tho leading part Is excep
tionally good. This will bo Mr. Mont
gomery's lust appearance on the uni
versity stage. Other characters whp
are proving strong actors are Miss
Holcome, Miss Stegner, Miss Day, Yale
Holland, Searl Dans, Verne Glddlngs,
Mr. Dobbs, In a strong comedy part;
Mr. Froyd, Mr. Hill, and Mr. Thomas
as aid-de-camps and Sheldon Coons
as a dude are indlspensible to the pro
duction. 8pecial Features.
Every effort Is being put forth to
make the costuming and stage setting
the best to bo had. Somo of tho scen
ery Is being painted especially for this
production aid the costuming, with its
rich tfnd vivid coloring in court cos
tumes and military attlro, will prove
more than attractive. Some special
featnros will be Introduced.' A seven
yeahold boy will take the part of a
little prince. This Is tho first time
that a small boy has ever been intro
duced In a university play. A quar
tet chosen from the glee club will also
sing in certain parts of the perform
ance. Two performances will be given on
June 8, one In the morning and one
In the evening. Tickets may bo so
qured at the box office of the Oliver
Nature of Play.
The play itself is one which canr
not help but win universal ap
proval. Like Graustark the scene Is
laid in an obscure and imaginary prin
cipality of the old world. 'The humor
ous side of the triais and tribulations
of rulershlp are depicted with a vivid
imagination. War is imminent with
an adjoining principality of the imag
inary name of Kurland The king
and his family, advised by council,
press tho princess to mrry the prince
of this Kurland to settle matters. Be-'
lug a woman, and a very romantic
woman, the princess naturally refuses
for the obvious reason jthat fine has
never seen him and yvlll marry pnly
for' love. f
The old cardinal, the king's best
friend, has a ,plan whereby the jriald
en will marry, the prince 'and that be
causoshe lovea him. It seems that
the prince had once been a scholar un
der1 the, cardinal and he Is now brought
to the court by the' cardinal Incognito,
as a friend. The prince acceeds to
this tho more willingly because he
has a natural desire to see his future
bride. Act II shows the development
of the love affair which develops rap
idly, like all story book affairs,
The prince, as Count Bernadlne,
gets the princess' consent to marry J
according to her father's w'lshos. She
promises, thinking she Is sacrificing
her love for count Dornodlno. They
go through a touching faroWoll; im
agine her Joy when at tho botrothal
she finds' the crown princo to be no
othorthnn her lover Count Bernadlne.
So they lived hnpplly ever after.

Dr. Tschermak 8peaks on "Mendel's
Law or Heredity."
Dr. Tschermak, of tho University of
Vienna, at 4:00 o' clock yesterday af
ternoon addressed an audience of stu
dents and professors on "Mendel's
Law of Heredity." Dr. Tschermak
spoke at length on tho applications of
Mendol'8 law to plant and animal
breeding. He demonstrated tho prin
ciples onAwhlch Mendellsm attains its
theories and tho practical working of
Dr. Tschermak Is one of three ac
knowledged world authorities on the
principles of Mendellsm. He has
studied tho principles of the theory
for years and his works In Europe
have attracted considerable atten
tion. At present he Is touring America,
lecturing at a number of tho principal
unlverlstles, on, the subject In which
he is mdst interested.
Mendellsm has to do with tho ef
fect of crossing or hybridization. Its
fundamental principle Is that if two
species of plants or animals be
crossed or hybridized a certain per
centage of the next generation will bo
of a nature similar to one of the two
hybridized species, a like percentage
will be similar to the other, and an
other part will possess characteris
tics of both.

TRIUMPH ON TRACK
CORNHU8KER8 DEFEAT KANSAS
BY 69-68 SCORE.
PLACE IN HIGH JIMP DECIDES
VICTORY COME8 IN LA8T EVENT
ON THE PROGRAM.
Harriel for Nebraska' Clears Bar While
Johnson Falls Giving Nebraska
an Opportunity to Win by
Taking Relay Race,
In a meet far moro sensational nnd
oxcltlng than anybody had predicted
and one Hkoly to go down In tho an
nals of scarlet and cream track ath
letics with a place among tho great
est cinder path contests over partici
pated In by the local state institution,
the Nobraska track team led by in
trepid and dosorvlng' Captain McDon
ald, defeated tho greatest and most
feared rivals of the Cornhuskcrs, tho
Jayhawkors, of Lawrenco, Kami., at
the state fair grounds Saturday after
noon, by tho score of 50 to G8.
It was a meet that Nobraska won
only by putting everything it had in
to a competition which tho visitors
made the fiercest one the local athletes
have boon participants in.thls sonson.
Victory came to the Cornhuskers in
the last ovent on tho program, for be
fore that was pulled off, tho fighters
of Coach Hagorman wore In tho lead
by four points, having at that time
their total of 58 points. But with all
duo respect to tho fleet runners who
outdistanced nnd outclassed their rival
contenders Jn tho relay, It must be
said that tho quarter did not alone
win the meet. It was slight little
Hamol with his leap of 5 feet; 6
Inches In the high Jnmp, that re
vived Nebraska's hope when certain
defeat Beemed at hand, and gave the?
chan.ee for bringing victory to tho
scarlet and cream.
Hamel's Sensational Part.
Hamel's dramatic part came in the
last minutes of tho meet, after prac
tically all of tho crowd had gone back
to tho city, uellevlng Nebraska had
lost the games to Kansas. First place
in the high Jump had been secured by
Smith of Kansas, and Hamol and
Johnson, of Kansas had failed to go
over the bar at 5 feet, 5 inches In
At this point tho meet was stopped
for ten minutes while Coach Hagor
man debated with Referee Phllpott the
question of having' the two men tied
for second place take three more
trials at tho bar. Hagerman insisted
that his man did not have to jump. any
more and that the meet was a victory
for Kansas. Referee PhilpotU how
ever, decreed that each of the two
tied Jumpers should take . thrde ' more
leaps at tho bar at 5 feet, 5 inches,
and then, if neither cleared it, the
three points for second place should
be divided. Had Coach Hagerman
been allowed his way, the me,et would
have gone to Kansas, for the Jay-'
hawkers- would then have had 59 1-2
points, by a split of tho points of sec
ond place In the high jump. This 'di
vision would have given Nebraska'but
52 1-2 points, and, even if the local
team had won the last event, the re
lay race, the 5 points secured thus
would have made its 'total but 57 1-2
points still leaving it 2 scores behind
Jump Three Times.
Acting on the order by Referee, Phil- a,
pott, Coach Hagerman sent his athlete '
to the field, ;Both the Jaybawkerand '
Hamol took two trials , at the r
resting at 5 feet, 5 inches and eackV,
