OLD MEN NEEDED BACK

FORMER "N" MEN COULD HELP
IMPROVEMENTS IN THIS WEEk'S WORK
Monday and Tuesday's Practice Shows
Gain Over Ragged Work of
Last Week and South
Football prospects looked rather
gloomy Saturday evening and the Mon
day following the South Dakota game.
The faint-hearted indulged in all
kinds of wild speculations and ex
pressed their fears of a disastrous
season. But since Monday's practice
and that of yesterday afternoon Ne
braska football stock has taken a de
cided boom. Tho team, nothing
daunted by tho poor showing of Sat
urday, have gone into tho work the
past few days with a zest that shows
they have not lost any of their fight
ing spirit at least
Tho work of tho past two days is
encouraging and goes to show that all
is needed is a little more time, a lit
tle more encouragemont, a little more
boosting and tho addition of the two
or three men who aro still holding out
to again place Nebraska in the front
rank among western colleges.
Could Help If Would.
There are several men now in school
who with a little sacrifice on their
paht could give tho Nebraska, team
this added Btrenth so necessary to
its success. These men aro being anx
iously watched these days and much
pressure is being brought to bear to
Induce them to make this sacrifice for
their alma mater.
Hit is tho opinion of many students
that' there is no moro loyal student in
the University of Nebraska than "Sid"
Collin's. His case is peculiar. He has
a. fine paying position as probation of
ficer, ono that he can hold and carry
his work at school as well. If he
were to get out for football it would
necessitate his throwing up this posi
tion and perhaps make it necessary
for him to remain out of school an
other yoar. Collins has ben charged
with remaining off the. squad for self
lsh motives. Hid friends "will not ad
mit this to be true and they believe
that there Is no student at Nebraska
who would sacrifice or who has sacri
ficed more than, Collins. It is to be
earnestly hoped, however, that some
arrangements can bo made whereby
the Nebraska oleven of 1909 can have
the services of this great player.
Others Not In Game.
But there aro others who have less
excuse for remaining . out Walcott
and Ewlng are 8(111 waiting for re
ports from their examinations. It is
thought that both of these men may.
be In the harness before the end of the
Another sldellner Is Ben Bowers.
Last year he proved a good linesman
and , saw some service. He played
guard during the lattor part of the
last half of tho Iowa game, Bowers
has .had considerable experience at
center, or ho could bo used' at some
other lino position, So far he has
made no effort to get out, though it
, seems there Is nothing to hinder his
Of course those men all have their
reasons, but as Coach Cole said last
evening, it Ib almost Inconceivable
that men who are eligible and who are
so much needed by the team would
hosltato to give their services at such
a time of need.
Yesterday's practice brought out ono

end position. Ho was a little late in
getting started, but Is in good condi

good part of tho past summer. He
will mako a Btrong fight for a posi

now five candidates for tho end posi

STREETER IS INJECTED INTO RACE
Engineering 8tudent Made a Candidate
by His Friends Without His Own
Approval and Excitement
In an election replete with striking
peculiarities, Fred Hoffman, a tech
nical agriculturist, was yesterday
elected president of tho senior clasB.
Hoffman received 97 votes on the
first ballot. HIb closest rival, It. B.
Campbell, a fourth year engineer,
polled 47 votes. M. E. Streeter, also
an engineer, received 31 counts.
At almost tho last moment a quiet
two weoks, was changed Into a contest
of Intense Interest by the Injection
Into tho race of M. E. Streotcr.
Streeter was not an avowed candidate
for tho presidency. His entering tho
race was entirely tho result of volun
tary agitation on tho part of friends
who started a boom for him Monday
Streeter himself did not credit the
reports of his candidacy until his nom
ination at tho class meeting at Me
morial Hall. Ho then attempted to
withdraw, buthls request was not al
lowed and ho received 31 votes. His
position had added embarrassment -Inasmuch
as he made the speech nom
inating Hoffman. Ho voted 'for Hoff
man and supported blm throughout the
Additional interest was aroused
among seniors by the use of a docu
ment originating from the registrar's
office aBsertipg that Campbell had not
enough credits to qualify as a senior,
In his Bpeech nominating Campbell,
Ralph Moseley declared this report
false and presented credentials from
Registrar Harrison asserting that
Campbell was a full senior. His ac
tion led many students to believe that
tho previous circulation of tho report
denying Campbell's qualifications was
That this was a mistaken Idea was
tho statement mado by tho registrar's
office yesterday afternoon. Campbell
had credits amounting to 84 hours,
whereas 89 are required for senior
rank. After tho first statement to this
effect was Issued by the office, the
senior candidate made arrangements
with an instructor whoreby ho was al
lowed additional credit on back sub
jects. By this deal he qualified as a
scnlpr and the registrar .then Issued
tho statement presented by Moseley in
Details of Meeting.
Tho meeting yesterday was called
to order by Presldont Yates, Nomina
tions for president wore called for
and M. E. Streeter named Fred Hoff
man in a brief speech, in which ho
dwelt upon him as a candidate who
would harmonize the Various InterestE
of the class.
Campbell wbb named by Ralph
Moseley. Moseley said his candidate
needed no defense and closed by of
