Colorado 8chool Not Yet Over 8tlng
of Defeat, Two Years Ago and
a Hard Battle Is
With no football game scheduled
-for Saturday, Interest this week la
centered on the Olympics. Coach Coio,
however, Is not wasting time, but Is
putting In some good work In de
veloping the scrubs.
Most of the varsity men 'are back
at work,. all of them having fully re
covered from tho effects of the Kan
sas game. No one was seriously In
jured In that contest, but Magor,
Chauner and Johnson all received
minor bruises. Magor's face and head
were quite badly bruised up from the
effects, of his florae tackling and line
plunging. All of these men are again
in good condition, and would be in
fine shape for a game Saturday.
Scrimmage Yesterday.
1 ('each Cole held a short session of
scrimmage work yesterday at tho Ne
braska Held. The scrubs were In
good" trim and proceeded to do things
to tho varsity, securing a touchdown
nfter about fifteen minutes of play.
Tho squad will continue their light
practice and signal work today and
Saturday. Work in preparation for
the Denyer game will begin Monday.
, Little' Information as to the strength
af tho Denver team, has roaohed Ne
braska circles so far thia year, so that
thus far they are an unknown quan
tity. Last year they had a strong
team, holding the formidable Carlisle
team down to a much lower score
than did Nebraska a few days before.
' This will bo tho first time tho teams
have met In two years. It will be
remembered that tho Denyer contest
tiero two years ago was a literal
walk-away for the Cornhuskers. Tho
Deniverltes have not gotten over tho
sting of that defeat yet. With "Deac"
Koehler, an old .Nebraska Mar, to lead
them, thoy promise' to- do things when
they get the Cirnhuskers" on their
own back lot a week from next Sat
urday. ft Iff a Curious Coincidence that In
each. of..tha remaining coqtoBts tho
Cornhuskers wl.ll be pitted against
(ho brains of ' former Nobraskan.
Koehler o.t Denver and Johnny Ben
der at Haskell are both well-remembered
Comhuslters, and both will
strive to down their alma mater. Both
are rising young coaches and a vic
tory for either of them would moan
Class Teams' All Out.
Interest Is beginning to center
dbout the different class terims. Tho
freshmen are .to be allowed to com
pete this year, making four teams iri
alirIii foYmerv .yeaYs"T:hev frfeshieJJ'
wore ruled out on the grounds that
thoy would have too much advantage'
Blfl.ce none of their men aro taken, for
tho varsity and also since thoy have
the advantnge of special coaching. To
offset this fact this year eight men of
varsity caliber aro to be selected by
4ho coaches from the freshmen ranks.
None of these men will be allowed to
compete In the class contests.
"With four teams In the field, the
contest for premier class honors will
be, harder than ever,. and perhaps at
leasj fiye or islx, games w,fll have to bo
played.' Th'e fairies last' year Were1

ners. They havo tho advantage of aA
oarly start and havo already Bad two
scrimmages with Wesleyan. TH'o last
one was hold Tuesday afternoon, In
Which tho juniors surprised them
selves by holding tho University Placo
men scoreless. Much remains to be
seen, however, and all depends on how
the other teams work out.
The first gamo between the juniors
and seniors is schedulod for Monday

Suggestion that Campus Be Extended
Northward Does Not Meet With
Approval of All Faculty
Its full Importance not realized un
til after its conclusion, tho second
dlnnor of tho University Faculty Club
held at the Lincoln Wednesday night
bids fair to bo recognized ns an opoch
making event In tho history of Ne
braska's state unlvorslty. Planned
originally as an informal gathering of
university professors to listen to re
marks by a well-informed college
architect, tho meeting resulted in
launching a "hotter campus" project
with a large Impetus.
As a result of the talks by leading
professors and citizens tho question
of campus improvement within tho
next few years Is placed squarely In
the public view. Suggestions made by
Mayor Lovo of Lincoln and W. J.
Bryan, as well as the plans proposed
by Architect Riitan, were yestorday
th,e subject of much talk about the
university campiiB and in Lincoln gen
erally. Everywhere among university
men and women tho move Is welcomed
as a start In tho right direction.
Move the Campus?
The suggestion of Mr. Rutan that
the clty'cam'pus be extended to the
north rather than ovpr the nloro ex
pensive land to the east of its present
site is already meeting with objec
tions. Dean Richards of the engineer
ing school was tho man who first de
cried such a plan at the dlnnor and
others yesterday expressed similar
views. Under the present condltlbns
some delicate instruments in the
physics, and other laboratories cannot
be UBed at times because of the jar
of trains passing In the railroad yards
a few. blocks north and west of tho
campus. In case tho campus were
extended northward even a block or
two, so as to Include the new athletic
field and the land immediately oast,
tho railroad yards would be lri al
most Immediate proximity. This is,
In he eyes 6f many men, a grave
difficulty to be oncountered by such'
The land east and south of the
pre'sont campuB is very valuable anil
it would take a great amount of
money to condemn any large area in
that direction. In view of these facts,
somo university people indicate that
they would favor a complete removal
of the' university to another site. They
claim that tho money nepessarlly
spent in acquiring the very valuable
land adjacent to tho present campub
could be spent more advantageously
in founding a new school elsewhere.
Mr. Bryan's Scheme.
Tho plan proposed by W. J. Bryan at
tho faculty dinner has met with much
approval. Ho suggested that a syn
dicate of public spirited citizens buy
a large tract of land in somo suburb
of the city suitable for campus pur
poses'. A part of this could then be
turned over to tho university as a
campus. The rest of the tract could
then bo broken, up into lots and sold
to private purchasers. Owing to the
fact that the land would immediately
rlso enormously in value as soon as
tho location of tho university on ad
jacent ground was known, tho syndl-
qtCto could regain a largo part of their
investment through this advance. Tho
remaining amount could eventually be
paid by the Btato.
A third plan' contemplates tho re
moval of the city campus to the state
The buildings now ,6n theclty cam
pus aro worth several hundred thou
sand dollars. Their removal to any
extent would bo impossible but thoy
could possibly bo sold for other pur
Poscb and somo funds bo realized In
this way. In caso somo movo Is mado
within tho near futuro, It will bo noc
osary to reconstruot somo of tho pres
ent old structures, euch as Unlvorslty
and Nebraska halls, and In view of
this fact many unlvorslty men bollovo
that now Is tho time to tako some
definite action for a hotter campus.
If tho matter Is dolayed It will bo
necessary to orect now buildings on
tho present eite, and it will then bo
moro Impractical to remove or nltor
the campus than Is now tho caso.
Regents Delay Action.
Yesterday Mr. Rutan met with tho
boardj of regents and discussed tho
proposed changes with them. Ab a re
sult of hls'vlBlt hero ho returned to
Boston with full notes of tho Nebraska
condition. Ho will not draw plans
until directed by tho board of rogonts
as to tho genorul naturo of tho work
to be undertaken. Tho regents wilj
probably docldo within a short time
whether tho proposed extension shall
bo cast or north, and they will then
notify Mr. Rutan bo that ho may pro
paro plans accordingly.
From tho discussion of tho regents
It Is evident that tho members of that
body favor un extonslori of tho pres
ent campus rather than tho romoval
of tho university. Financial necessity
and the difficulty that would bo ex
perienced in providing suitable room
ing conveniences for students In a
now location aro somo of tho motives
which impel them to this view.
Juniors Have Only -Ten Left to pis
pose of for Dance Tonight,
Only ton tickets -romatned in the
bands of Chairman Lawrence of the
junior hop at 8 o'clock last evening.
Ater those ten pasteboards are distrib
uted no moro will bo issued.
It is said that a number of students
havo made dates without getting tick
ets. These aro apt to find them solves
In trouble. "Wo havo announced our
limit and wo want to stick to it," said
Chairman Lawrence. "Wo prefer that
no ono como to the danco without
previously having purchased tickets,
for wo shall bo compelled to turn
thorn away. Persons who havo not
tickets and Who need them should sco
mo at once Friday morning, for tho
first to apply will get the ten tickets
still undistributed."
Lincoln Pupils Attend Art Associa
tion's Display in Library.
The art exhibit 1b attracting larger
crowds each day. Yesterday tho at
tendance was 300 In the morning and
about the same number in tho after
noon. The association tries each year
to vary the pictures in naturo and sub
jects. This year there are moro por
traiture work than ever before. Rob
ert Henri, who is ono of tho greatest
portrait painters In tho world, has
several specimens In the exhibit. His
"Girl in White", and "Miss Wakl
Kajl" aro wonderful plecos of work.
Tho rest of this -week and all of
next, tho exhibit will bo visited by tho
school children of Lincoln. Tickets
are sent to the schools which aro
sold for ten cents and those who pur
chase tickets aro brought to tho ex
hibit by their teachers and allowed to
spend as much time as is needed to
see the pictures. The children of the
Whlttler arid Capital schools wore
present yestorday, In charge of thelr
teachers. Catalogs had hpen sent to
tho schools and tho pupils 'allowed to
study them before visiting tho ex

Matter of Lengthening Term of Ses
sion and Other Details Left to
Special Committee Other
Matters Discussed.
At Its Bpoclal sosslon yestorday tho
board of rogonts actod upon sovoral
matters of comparatlvo Importance.
Ono of tholr principal acts was tho
addition of a olauso to tho rules re
garding the granting of honorary de
grees which binds tho bonrd to give
bucIi titles only on recommendation
of, tho unlvorslty senate Various fac
ulty changes- and tho creation of a
separate department In tho summer
session woro other matters consid
ered. Tho chango In tho regulation of
honorary degreos resulted from tho
doBlro of tho rogonts to guard ngalnst
tho granting of degreoB In cases
whoro tho applicant did not measure
up to the academic standards com
monly understood to belong to tho
titles. Heretofore tho board has had
tho power to grant any honorary do
greoH, the granting of regular degreos
resting, however, eololy upon iocoui
mondntlon of tho faculties. Tho re
gents ycHtorday amended tholr rules
so that tho, honorary degrees now do
,pond upon the favorablo action of tho
senato. .. .
