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

were given the support of almost tho

tically the eamo as If It 'had been
played In Lincoln so far; as the rooters
were .concerned.
Saturday's game with Denver, then,
will bo tho first real Invasion of an
enemy's territory by tho. 1909 Corn-husker-

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

Good Practice Yesterday.
Regular scrimmage practice was,
held '.at tho state farm yesterday. The
play was a Uttlo slow, owing to tho
condition of tho flold. Tho men
showed plenty of snap and ginger,
however, and showod a willingness
that looks well for ConhuBker ,prqs

All university girls are urged to gn

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."

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

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.
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-
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.

Nebraska won first place. Tho noxt

a ncoro of CO to 61, and tho threo suc

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.
