Tbe 2)atlv 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 Rapidly. 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 night's ride. 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 later. 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 ular organization bo far as can be learned. The custom In tho past has been to give the members of the winning team sweaters with tholr numeral on them. These BweaterB have been paid for out of the gate receipts from the games and this year a small admission fee will be charged for this purpose.

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 announced. 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. Basketball Practice. 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. Freshmen Practice. 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 February 4 the Occasion of the Big 8oc'fal Event.
