Big Effort for $100,000 to Elect Splen-

an End With Reports
Tho Y. M. C. A. compilttemen aro
making a desperate effort to secure
the balance of the $100,000 fund to
day so that the entire amount can be
announced at tho closing mooting to
night. To afford every opportunity to
the business men who volunteered to
put the1 movement through It was do-
cidod to 'abandon tho usual dally gath
ering atioon today and have tho final
reports this evening at the headquar
ters, 189 South 11th street.' Tho .do
ing away with the, mid-day conference
means that an emergency Is at hand
and tho Btudonts of tho university are
urged to do what they can to make
the success of this commendable en
After tho reports were submitted
yesterday It was found that the $100,
Q00 fund still lacked nearly $13,000,
'the exact amount being $12,887. This
1b a largo sum to bo obtained In one
day. It can bo done only by a super
human offort on tho part of the mem
bers of the committees who have la
bored so-faithfully and so energetic
ally for tho last ten days. Members
bT"tho Taculty and tf the student body
have assisted In these Y. M. C. A.
"short term" campaigns In other
cities both by endeavor and by sub
scribing. Tho Bamo ought to bo dono

the past nine years has not boon sur

students of tho university through
both tho city and tho collegiate asso

wholesome surroundings ought to bo

A New University Song
To tho Editor of Tho Nebraskan:
. ' . i.
I beg tho use of your columns to place some
thing before the University to revive Interest In a
"Nebraska Song." Tho idea was taken up laBt
year by tho "Innocents," but for Borne reason It
I believe that Nebraska ought to havo a song
of her own, with words of her own and music of
her own. Wo ought to have Bomothing wo could
sing for NebraBkans wherever Nebraskans may
be, and not feel wo are singing the song of some
other college, or words put to some popular air.
It's fho traditions that bind a man to his alma
mater. An old Princeton "grad" can go baok and
stand with uncovored head, with tears in his
eyes, while ho singa the, "Orange and tho Black,"
but graduates of tho U. of N. can never feel
those emotions when they sing Nebraska words
to tho tune of tho "Orango and tho Black." Let'B
have a Nebraska, song for Nebraskans.
And In order to start Interest in this direction,
I submit tho following words, to which I Have a
tuno, but knowing nothing of piano composition,
am unable to write it down:
THE 8CARLET AND CREAM.
In a country where meadow-land kisses tho sky,'
Where corn Is a bounty so rare,
A germ of great learning once hovering above,
Fell down and now vegetables there,
From far and from near .
Comes the cream of tho land,
A part of tho morning's bright beam.
It plucks from the sunset a great scarlet band,
To make up tho scarlet and cream'.
Toast to tho health of Nebraska.
Pride of her sons and tho queon of the weBt,
Varsity 1 Varsity! or all tho beBt.
Whorovor wo are, wo'ro for No-bras-ka, boys.
Then onward, Nebraska, the Scarlet and Cream,
Our shouts ring out loud in tho air.
Wo know, by that spirit, the victory Is Boaled,
And homeward tho glory we'll boar.
When hearts throb with pain,
When the struggle seems vain,
Apd tears of defiance do gleam.
With spirit undaunted we'll stand by the school,
And yell fo rtbo Scarlot and Creanf.
And thus bo It ever, the spirit that wins,
Wherever NobraskanB may bo.
Together we'll stand by tho old U. of N.,
And hope greater glorieB to see.
Tho years passing by
May bring to her sons,
Whatever most fitting they deem,
But always our thoughts to Nebraska will turn,
Our songs will bo Scarlot and Cream.
Then hero's to Nebraska, the Scarlet and Cream,
Long life to tho Cornhusker band.
A toast to a future of wonderful growth,
A toaBt:to.tho flower of the land.
In long after years,
Our eyes fllle'd-Mrtth tears,
We'll comp toMlvo o'er the old, dream.
Whl gather together, In rain pr in shine,
To cheer on the Scarlet and Cream.

PERRY BACK FOR BA8KETBALL
Captain of 1909 Five Expects to Put
Up Good Game This Winter.
H. O. Perry, captain of tho 1909-1910
basketball team which will represent
Nebraska in tho Missouri Valley this
winter, is back in school. Perry b In
much better health than he was last
spring, -when there was soma doubt as
to wlfether he would bo able to re
enter tho game this wlntqr. He bo
lieyeB that he will not only be able
to play the game, but that he s in,, bet
ter condition for it than ever before.
Tle basketball meri will not com
mence practice until early jNpvoniber,
A squad will be formed then which
vflll work 'together until tho end of
the football season with tho Haskell
game on Thanksgiving From that
,tlme on the men vrlll got to workiu
pafnegt and vtbe. schedule r will , begin
immediately after Christmas.
Many students have been consider
ably aroused since registration regard
ing tho now laboratories in the engi
neering building and what Is to be
dono regarding fees paid in If the lab
oratories canno? be used. Owing to
a delay In the shipment of the fur
nishings for the new engineering
building, the work haB dragged for
the past fov"ceoks and tho labora
tories are not yet in shape for use.
This mejpB that the engineering stu
dents 63ll bo unablo to get into tho
laboratory work for" a few weeks.
In case there is any serious delay
in starting the work provision will be
made for tho students who have paid
fees for work In these laboratories.
Should such a delay occur, Professor
Richards states that lbaoratory, fees
will be rebated for tho second semes
ter' to cover the loss in the .'first.
fuiB ruuiuu, oi couruo, wouia oniy ap
ply to those who' have registered, for
the first semestor'8 laboratory work.
Fn this mahner it is believed that anjr

students the "first semester may be,
Not Ready Yet. .
The new; laboratories wil probably
not be ready for '-. occupation,, for $'t
least .twoUweoka, ,'and- it, may take ,sev
eral weeks more to get things into
shape. The delays which those in
charge of tho work havo experienced
havo been unavoidable. Most of tho
furnishings such as pulleys, shafting,
motors, and tho like, were promisod
for delivery September first and have
not yet arrived. Tho department has
had everything In readiness for some
timp for tho reception of this ap
paratus. Even after some of the shipments
whlcli were made earlier in the sum
mer arrived, there was a delay of
weeks In getting It unloaded and de
livered, owing to delays on tho part
of the transfer companies. Some of
the machinery was lost In shipment,
and is only now being traced to its
destination. Motors which were or
Ijered August 1 and were to havo been
delivered In five weeks have not yet
been shipped. However, most of this
material will comq in the next few
weeks and when once installed Ne
braska will probably ,jbave oqe of the
finest mechanical engineering labora
tories and building in this country.
No Steam Lab.
No attempt will be made to oper
ate the steam laboratories this se
mester. Students who were to have
taken that work will be allowed ,tQ
substitute somothlng else, All of this
machinery and apparatus will be
Bhipper, however, in six or eight weeks
and every effort will be made to get
things into shape for work .the sec;
ond semester. As it is, in all of the
laboratories especial pains will .be
taken 'to see that the laboratories ,for
tho use of. jTresbmen .,and sophqmor.es
Will be ready, as soon, as possible, as
it lis with these iwp classes that the
most, difficulty n arranging the work
will be met with.

"Buck" Boltzor showed that ho has
hot lost any of his cunning In passing
the ball. His passes aro fast and ac
curate and ought to bo a strong factor
in winning games for tho Nebraska
eleven this year, Tho ond and backs'
showed good speed in getting down

xno greatest weakness was again
shown by tho inexperienced lino. Spyr-t

broke thru and blocked tho plays. As-,
sistant Coach Harvoy Is working hard
with tho lino men, as ho feels that
much will depend on how wil no can
develop tho now men before tho hard
games come off. Every night sees
about a score of two hundred pounders
lined up against each other learning
the art of charging, blocking and ,
breaking up plays, under the tuition of
tho assistant coach.
