Tho tunes must bo lively, and the
words muBt be snappy presentations
of tho things which tho Cornhuskers
are going to do to tho invading Jay
hawkers bn Nebraska field.
Tho songs need not bo master
plocoB of tho poet'B art. Manager
Eager Bays ht ho will accopt tho stu
dent productions oven If the metro is
off once In a while. What ho wtints Ib
not literary groatness, but "spirit."
That must bo had In hirgo quantities
if Nebrnska Is to come off tho field
Saturday with her colors flying. Good
songs will play a big part and there
Is no time to be loBt If thoy nro to be

Rallies to Be Held.
A monster rally, the biggest of the
year, will bo hold either Thursday or

aro still Indefinite, depending on the
nctlon of tho deanB rcflatlve to sus
pending 11 o'clock classes Friday for
the football men. If tho deans will
consent to such nctlon, the rally will
be hold at that hour. Otherwise It
will bo hold at some time Thursday or

Manager Eager has sent out largo
quantities of advertising matter over

Will bo Immense. People from all over
eastern Nobraska plan to attend, Tho
reserved seat snlo at Harley's has been
yory heavy and students should loso
no time If thoy wish to get good res
ervations. Arrangements are being mnde for
the decoration of LJncoln stgrps yvih
Nebraska and Kansas colors. This

scale than ovor before.
To Greet Kansas.
If contemplated arrangements aro

enthusiastic rocoptlon upon tho ar
rival of tho team Friday evening. The
Jnyhawkers are duo at about 5 o'clock
and It is planned to have a mass meet
ing of students at tho station to moot
them. A parade uptown with tho
cadet band at the head is one of the
features which la Included In the pro-'
posed reception. ThiB feature is not
certain, however, depending In part
upon the willingness of the Kansas
coach to allow his men to participate.
DY MRS. EDITH DAVIS
NOTED LECTURER SPEAK8 AT
GREAT HEED Of MORAL CHARACTER
8peaker Portrays Effects of Alcoholic
' Stimulants and Points Out
Remedy for Existing
Mrs. Edith Smith Davis, a W. C. T.
U. lecturer of International reputation,
addressed the Tuedsay convocation.
She Is a speaker of much ability. and
presents her subject in a most inter
esting and capable manner. Tho num
ber present was disappointingly small.
Mrs. DavlB said;
"It is tho fow who do tho reql work
of tho world. Theso few muBt make
every effort to get a hold of tho truth.
It makes llttlo difference to what .de
gree division of opinion goes for wo
need all forms of truth and of fact and'
information. What wo .heed to guard
against is the falluro to go far enough
in our efforts, One who jumps eight
feet of a ten-foot chasm, falls. Somo
things have to bo dono in its entirety
to accomplish anything.
"Ono of theBo things Is tho making
of chnractor, and it is the greatest
thing wo can accomplish. Somo peo
ple develop into olther physical or in
tellectual monstrosities, and Ipse sight
of tho higher things in other ways.
They have not tho vision of a devel
oped chnractor, but it is Biirrounded
by a wall. Our great need Is mornl
character in ovorything. Lovo nnd
morality and religion is necessary to
dovolop- tho best moral character. The
lack of vlBlon Is often tho curse of
men of genius, such ns Poo, who know
tho right purpose of life and yet died
in a drunken stupor. Wo njus't get a
broader vision if we aro to have tho
beBt moral character.
"Prof. Clark of Clark university Is a
man of this broad vision. Ho loves
humanity and with such a motive be
gan to experiment with the effect of
alcohol on animals. Ho took four dogs,
which ho treated exactly alike, except
that to two of thorn ho gave dally a
few drops of alcohol. Ho soon tound
that these two wore more nervous
and easily excltablo. more prone to dis
ease nnd succumb to It much easier.
Then he sought to discover whether It
adds to their strength. Delicate ma
chines wero made which registered
every bodily movement, and he found
that the two fod alcohol did not ex
ert nearly as much strength.
"The facts" were published. BuhU
ness men took hold of it and users of
alcohol aro not as competent or ns
strong ns others. And now It Is dif
ficult and oven Impossible for men to
enter .some professions who use to
bacco or drink alcohol. The descend
ants of alcohol users. Are Intellectu
ally Inferior to other children. In a
school in St. Louis, attended by chil
dren of wealthy parents, who wore
addicted to the use of alcohol wero
miserably Incompetent to master tho
simplest forms of knowledge.
"The call comes to us to teach the
truth about alcohol. It is no longer a
moral question, but a scientific ques
tion. No scientist will speak of alco
hol now In any way, but that It is a
narcotic. In Belgium, I watched eov
oral hundred people who were waiting
to embark to come to America. Thoy
crowded the saloonii nUday. Mothers
fbrced alcohol - down the tbroats of
their children. The question I asked
was: When thoy come to America,
what will wo do with thorn? Every
child miiBt go to school, which is the
machine which grinds out our citi
zens. There they must be Instructed
against this danger. Any one mooting
these conditions will be the world's
greatest missionary. As wo go on we
must seek the broader vlBlon of llfo,
which will mak'o for character."
