CORNHUSKERS TAKE THE
TRAIN TO DENVER GAME
ROUSING 8END-0FF AT STATION
FOR COLE'S MEN.
(IASS CAMES ARE SOON TO COME
Juniors and Seniors Line Up on Mon
day and Rest of Series
Will Be Played Off
The CornhuskerB are off on their
western trip. The team left alBt night
at 6 o'clock ovor the Burlington and
are due to arrive In Denver at 7:20
this morning. The afternoon today
will be spent In sight-seeing with pos
sibly a short signal practice to limber
the men up from the effects of the
The team was given a rousing send
off at the depot last evening. The
entire cadet battalion, headed by the
cadet band, marched to the depot to
show the departing team that the
spirit of the university was back of
them. Quite a number of other loyal
students were present- and all joined
In giving the university yells, and, ac
companied by the band, sang "U-U-U-NI"
until the train had passed out of
sight. The different members -of the
team were called on In turn and each
was compelled to appear and say a
few words before the crowd would be
quiet. All In all It was one of those
inspiring occasions which do not oc
cur more than once or twice in the
school year, and those who braved the
mud In going to the station were
amply repaid for their trouble.
The squad that left for Donvor yes
terday was ono of the largest ever
taken on so long a trip. There were
eighteen players besides Coach Cole,
Assistant Coach Harvey and Professor
Barber, who went along as faculty rep
resentative. The reason for taking so
large a squad Is because of the close
nesB of the next two games on the
schedule. It will hardly -pay to keep
the regulars In throughout the whole
game tomorrow unless absolutely nec
essary. The players making tho trip
are as follows: Harto, Johnson, Bent
ley, Ewlng, Shonka, Frank, Boltzbr,
Elliott, Wolcott, Chauner, Temple,
Magor, Wenstrand, Sturmor, Spell
meyer, Farley, Rathbone, and Sturtzo
negger. , :
Class Games Coming Off Soon.
Next week will see the class cham
pionship football contest narrowed
down to two teams. On Monday tho
juniors and seniors lineup for the first
battle. The game is called for tw.o
o'clock; and If conditions will permit
It will be held at Nebrfaka field.
Should the weather remain bad, how
ever, the -game will probably be held
at Antelope park.
The freshman-sophomore contest is
set for Tuesday. As yet the exact
hour has not been determined. Owing
to tho lateness in getting started, but
three games will bo played. The win
ners of next weok's contests will play
off tho finals for the championship on
some date following the Thanksgiving
vacation, this date to bo determined
The bad weather the paBt week has
put a damper on the practice of the
various teams, so that none of them
are In very good condition. Tho
juniors have boen out tho longest, and
have had the advantage of having had
two scrimmages with Wesleyan. On
paper they look rather strong and are
being picked by many as winners.
Dick Russell Is manager and Pike Is
captain of the team.
The seniors have not been out so
long and t Is hard to tell-just what
they cari do. They" havo some good
material If It were -worked out. it
they can get Into shape by Monday
they ought to give the juniors a hard
fight. Joe Burke is manager and Dlt-
torllno captain of thd senior team.
8ophs Are Good.
Manager Pearse and Coach Lofgren
have succeeded In getting out a line
bunch of sophomores, who ought to
make tho juniors go some for the
championship. Quite a number of the
team are a little back on eligibility
requirements, however, which will
have to be fixed up before tho first
contest. Many of those members aro
how working over those matters and
ought to have everything straightened
up by Tuesday. As yet the sopho
mores have not chosen a captain.
The freshman team so far Is an un
known quantity. Since no men are
drawn from the frcBhman for tho var
sity team and Blnco they have the ad
vantage of Bpecial coaching, a number
of the regular freshman or "scrub"
team who aro considered "varsity ma
terial" will bo selected by tho coaches.
These men will not be allowed, to play
In the interclass gtitoias. As yet tho
freshman Interclass team has no reg

The custom In tho past has been to
give the members of the winning team
sweaters with tholr numeral on them.

will be charged for this purpose.

PLAN FOR BETTER BELLS.
Engineer in Charge of Bells and
Clocks on Campus.
The present exasperating faults of
the boll and clock system about the
campus has borne its fruit in tho ap
pointment of an engineering student

in either clock or boll systems report

NEW COLLEGE MAGAZINE.
New Magazine Published on the Fac
ulty and Administrative Side
of College Life.
Some of the members of the uni
vorslty faculty havo been tho recipi
ents of a now college magazine en
titled "Tho American College." This
magazine Is not published by students
of any institution, but all the articles
of which It Is composed aro written
by members of university and college
faculties of the United .States. The
articles deal -wholly with university
and college Interests' and also dlscu'ss
many matters wh,lch aro of Interest to
tho members' of tho faculty of the dif
ferent schools and the admlnltsratlve
officers of these Institutions.
The basketball schedule of the uni
versity basketball team will bo an
nounced the latter part of noxt week.
On Nov. 27 the basketball association
will meet at Dos MolneB, la., for tho
arrangement of the schedule of all the
teams In tho Missouri Valloy confer
ence. At this meeting tho schedule
for the games that Nebraska has with
other teams of the conference will bo
It Is thought that tho conference
will also meet at that city on the dato
named, as dofinlto information has
been received by Dr. Clapp to that ef
fect, although no official notice has as
yot been sent. Dr. Clapp will attend
this meeting of the basketball associ
ation as tho representative from this
institution, and if tho conferonco
moots he will also be tho representa
tive in that body as the Nebraska
meniber of tho conference.
Meanwhile the work of the team
goes on. The members of tho squad
meet three times a week for practice
and the hours are so arranged that
any one who 1b eligible for the team
Is able to be present for practice. Tho
practice is hold in the evening on two
days of tho week and on the aftor
noon of one other day. On Monday
and Wednesday tho members of tho
equad meet at 8 o'clock in tho even
ing for work and also on Friday after
noon at 4 o'clock.
Including Caption Perry, there aro
at present flvo "T men on tho squad
and also two othor men who wore
subB on tho team last year. Tho "N"
men who aro out .for practice besides
Captain Perry aro Wood, Petrashek,
Ingersoll, and Schmidt. Tho two subs
on tho last year's team are Jones and
Hutchinson. Besides this nucleus of
old men from which the team is to bo
picked are several othor men who have
shown their ability to good advantage.
New Men Lazy.
The chief difficulty with these men
who are new on the squad is that thoy
seem wholly lacking In tho doslro to
get Into the game with any vim and
spirit. Thoy aro willing onough to
play If tho ball Is thrown to thorn, but
their desire to go after the ball and
keep their opponents from getting It
Is missing. This sort of spirit is not
what makes tho members of tho good
baskotball teams bIiow tholr real abil
ity, and this spirit must bo cultivated
Into these now men. Tho spirit Is
thero and It must bo brought out of
tho men. That this is part of the
coaching is admitted by the mombors
of tho student body, and tho students
of tho university and tho supporter
of tho basketball team look for the
Nebraska coach to do this, as his
ability to do so has made him known
in the Missouri Valley as one of the
men who whips the fighting spirit
Into the teams that ho coaches.
As tho ruling of tho Missouri Valloy
conference prohibits tho freshmen of
the schools to participate In varsity
games the members of the freshmen
class 'who havo aspirations along bas
ketball lines are not allowed to prac
tice with tho members of tho varsity
squad. The members of tho freshman
class may develop a team, -though,
that is allowed to compete with tho
rest of tho class teams of tho univer
sity. Ono exception to this rulo Is
