The varsity football squad leuve Lincon this evening over the 6 o'clock Burlington fpr Denver. This is tho first real trip of tho season, tho Min nesota game at Omaha being the only other contest played outside of Lin coln.

Saturday's game with Denver, then, will bo tho first real Invasion of an enemy's territory by tho. 1909 Corn-husker- eleven. Tho 1908 team played threo games away from home, two of these being outsldo of tho state. In theso three games they won two, and tied the other, which. gqqB to show that for! last year, at' least, the' Corn huskers torero good fighters In tbe-TCjjV omies':. territory. Of tho six games' played at homo this year the Corn-, huekers havo yon. two, lpg two, and tied two. It remains for Saturday's contest to prove what kind of Invad ers this 1909 CornhuBltors aro.

DR. LELAND AT Y. W. C. A. Student Pastor Will Speak at Noon Meeting Tomorrow. All university girls are urged to gn to the Y. W. C. A. noon meeting to morrow and hear Dr. Leland, pastor of tho First Presbyterian church. Al though Dr. Leland will only speak for twtmty minutes, from 11:0 to 12-10, It Is certain that ho will say some thing of Interest to every one who hears hlra. That he Is loved and ap preciated by university btudents is proven by tho fact that thoy havo named him the "Student Pastor." Dr. Leland takes- an especial Inter est In tho Y. W. C. A., teaching two of tholr Bible classes In which about thirty girls are enrolled. 8TREEJ8 OF ALL NATIONS. Name of County. Fair Has Been Changed for This Year.

COMPETE WITH THE BIO SIX SCHOOLS With a 8trong Team, Nebraska Must Yet Do Better Work Than Bo fore to Repeat Victories of the Past. Tho crosB-country mon will leavo at 4 o'clock today for Chicago, where they will run Saturday In tho inter- couegiaio cross-couiury . tub. ino team is in good condition and has a strong chance to win. . The toam will bo accompanied b either Dr. Clapp or somo member of itho faculty. The race will bo hold at JacksoU park Saturday 'morning. L. R. Anderson, B. J. Blark, A. B. Am 'berson, W. It. Mellk nnd Georgo JLzlcar are tho members of tho team. Ambereon is tb'6 dnly,jold man intho team, 'but-jtbV other four.iiro liomark ably fastand rUn Veil together. A Strong Team. According to Dr. Clapn tho t,eam is ntuch stronger- this year than it was last. Owing to the bad woathoi tho past few days the men havo. been un ablo to do much running and conse quently it is difficult to fornfany' defi nite opinion, as to the work. Had tho conditions beon'fav'orablo for outdoor work this week tho toam could have been brought into much better shapo than at present." " How6Vor,' it' Is tho boBt balanced team that Nebraska has ever sent out. Tho mon all run close. Thoy all finished practically together, In the tryouts. It is this team work which has practically won 'the cross country. S9JH Nebraska four times dur- Anderson, is the fas to at man on the teamV 'Amb?rson is about as speedy and is the onlv man on tho toam who has nadpVovlouV 'oipef leiac'el fellk Is speedy, although not as good on tho long distance. Lzlcar and Clark both run In practically tho same tlmq as the remainder of the team. Hard-Work. Nebraska will havo a harder pull for tho championship tills year than she has had In the past. Heretofore she has had practically tho only team that exercised judgment in running togothor. It was the marked lack of this team, work that lost Purdue the championship last -year. Tho threo first men on tho Purduo team finished ahead of tho first Nebraska man, but tho twov remaining men on their team dropped so far behind that they killed the good score mado by their team matoB. Tho first eleven runners crossing the Hno last year finished in the . following order: Chicago, first; Purdue, second; Wisconsin, third; Purdue, thjrd; Purduo, fourth; Pur duo, fifth; Nebraska, sixth, seventh, eighth and nlnoB; Wisconsin, t tenth, and Nebraska, eleventh. This bunch ing of the team gave Nebraska tho winning score of 41. Purdue flnlshod aocond with a score of 51, 'Wisconsin third with 69, Chicago fourth with- 69, and .Drake fifth with 105. Two New Contestants, Minnesota and Michigan are both ''expected to enter in the crosscoun- ALL 8TUDENT8 OUTI try thin year and thoy aro both ox pected to turn out teams that will be hard to beat. Michigan has had a squad of between sixty and seventy men out and their long dlstanco men have tnken good places at many races In the oast.. Thoy aro expected to turn out an especially good team at tho contest Saturday. All of theso facts lndicato that tho contest this year will bo much keener thnn it has ever boon before. Conse quently tho fact that the Nebraska team Is bettor than ever before doos not nocossarlly mean victory, as, In the opinion of Dr. C'lapp, It will tako a much hotter team to win thiB year. Tho llnlsh in last year's raco will probably mean that the other com peting teams will pay more attention to team work than thoy havo in tho past, in which ovont tho advantage held by Nebraska In that rospoct will bo lost. a Record of Runs. Tho first lntorcolloglato raco was hold at Chicago In 1904, at which time Nebraska won first place. Tho noxt year Chicago won over Nobraska by a ncoro of CO to 61, and tho threo suc ceeding years Nobraska has held the championship. Tho raco is always held in Jack son park, the start and finish being i opposite tho university campuB. The dato Qf racQ ,B on tho of the jast big football game on tho ached ulo of the University and th6 raco Is pulled off at 11 o'clock, which en ables the visitors to go to tho game In the afternoon. Ovor $10,000 per quarter is tho sum earned by tho students of the Univer sity of Chicago who feel tho need of supplementing their means from some outsldo source. This does not Include tho honor scholarships' awarded'" by' tho unlvorslty, but covers actual work rendoredjjby students in overy Imagin able capacity,' .BUCh as stenographers clerks, tutors, waiters, 'ehaftttferffs',- salesmen, housework, attohdlng to fur naces and lawns, delivering papers and performing odd jobs generally. In iaci tno opportunities tor taxing worn are even more numerous than the number of students desiring to take advantago of them. Thero ar"6 fre quently openings for both mon and women in the largo retail storeB or in doctors' offices, for examplo; in which spare time in the aftornooris or on Saturday can bo turned to profitable account, which go a-begging. Approx imately 350 students of both sexes have obtained satisfactory work this quarter through the freo employment bureau maintained by tho university, there being no meanB of ascertaining how many more havo obtained work without such help. The fact remains, however, that thero is ample oppor tunity for tho energetic student to earn hlB way, either In whole or In part, and thoso opportunities usually outnumbor those Booking for them.
