Coach Colo took the football squad
out to tho State Form grounds yester
day and put thorn through tho stiffost
practice of the week. It was expect
ed that the squad would take to the
soft turf of thd farm grounds a little
better than they have boon doing on
the hard pebbly surface of the now
. The varsity is still slow and indif
ferent That same spirit of ginger
and enthusiasm that characterized
their play of a week ago is still lack
ing. At UmeB yesterday they showed
hursts of their former speed, but ttien
again they would weaken and Anally
they let the freshmen walk over them
for a touchdown.
Yesterday's scrimmage was tho
longest by far of the week and nehrlyj
all the men wore given a chance0
participate. Tho varsity firBt team
woro given the hall at firBt against the
second or scrub eleven. The scrubB
proved "weak and could not hold their
moro aggressive opponents, the first
team getting two touchdowns in
about fifteen minutes.
The freshmen were, then called In
and" proceeded to do things to the
Varsity, with the result above noted,
viz.: making a touchdown aftor about
ten minutes of play. Hornburger for
tho freshmen played a powerful game
at center, tearing up the varsity de
fense and making great holes in tho
line. Potter, the fast quarter of the
freshmen, also starred, as did also
.Gibson at full and Warner at end.
- Tho battle was a fierce one, result
ing in moro injuries than have yet
boon recorded in one day thiB year,
and this despite the fact that they
were playing on a much Bofter field.
Farley, wfeo has ben playing a yery
aggressive game .the past few days
and who wa,B given the varsity sig
nals last Friday, was so battered and
bruised up' that he had to be carried
from the field. It was-reported that
his arm was broken, but this was not
confirmed by the later reports.
Captain Buck Beltzer also received
quite a bump In the jaw in making a
flying tackle. He was knocked uncon
scious by the force of the blow and it
was thought, at firBt that he was seri
ously injured. But he came around
all right and was soon back into the

AUSTRALIAN BALLOT MAY CO THROUGH
Number of Students Express Them
selves as Favorable to Plan
Now Carried Out In
If a suggestion made by certain fac
ulty mombers and promibont students
is carrlod out, tho senior socioty of In
nocents may take a hand in tho pro
posed reform in tho mothod of hold
ing class oloctlons. A move to that
end has been started and It is llkoly
that tho Innocents will take doflnito
action In the matter shortly.
Following tho regrettable ballot
stufflng at the sophomore class meet
ing last Tuesday, mombers of tho stu
dent body and faculty mon particular
ly interested in student aotlvlflos have
boon endeavoring to discover some
moans by which tho election evil
might bo prpvontod.. 8omo of tho men
most interested have -taken tho mat
tor up with the Innocents and individ
ual mombors of that organization
havo expressed an opinion that tho
mattor properly might come under tho
direction of tho socioty.
So far, however, tho Innocents havo
done nothing in tho matter and It Is
by no means sure that they will in
terfere. Somo of thorn think that tho
mattor had best bo loft to the action
of tho Individual classes.. .
The Australian 8yatem.
Several plans of reform have been
suggested since the Tuesday noon
fiasco, but none has yet mot with tho
approval which has been accorded tho
propoBed introduction of the Austra
lian ballot system now in operation in
several universities. This schdmoi
first advanced by tho Daily Nobras
kan, has received considerable sup
port and there Ib a growing sentiment
that it would at least be well to give
it a trial at the noxt general class,
It ds not proposed to put tho full
Australian system into effect in class
elections. The only features would be
a registration system and a closed
ballot. A list of all members of the
class entitled to vote would bo made,
and as each studont voted his name
would bo checked off. He could cast
his vote in a sealed ballot box, The
polls might be open all day or only at
certain hours. In this way there would
bo no chance whatever of illegal vot
ing. Further than that, only .a few
minutes would be reaulred tav aneh
student in voting. The diflUculty fif
prolonged class mootlngs would he
avoided. ' '
In speaking with Daily Nebraskan
representatives several prominent; siu;
dents have'eome out in favor-"of too
plan. A. M. Oberfelder, president of
tho Junior class, said: "I 'Jwouicer
talnly favor any plan to reduce tne
rottenness" of class plecflons. "'Of
course thd Australian AsystemVwould
mean tho loss of a good part of the
present class meetings, 'out'. t would
havo tho advantagevbf alJsdiutelV pre
venting graft." 'J ' '''
A. M. Hare, another prominent
Junior, said: "Of course such a system
would practically destroy the tradi
tion of tho old-time class 'meeting.
That is, however, the only 'objection
that I can Beo to the plan, and I, Tor
one am In favor of it." '
President Thnmfla nf tho cftnhrJ
mores expressed himself forcibly wpejr
questioned. "Hurel, am for it," ho
said.' "This business or ballot, stuff-'
ing is tfettlnir to be entlrolv tnn niWfl.
lent It is a rotten condition of nf-
rairs. , Anything; that will cut it down
will meet with my.support. I bnjlove, ,
the Australian ballot would .'flit thU
bill."1 ' ' 1 ' "V" n ":??"!
