GQRNHUSKER TEAM TO
MEET DENVER TODAY
COACH COLE'8 MEN TO PLAY IN
THE SECOND TEAM GOES TO PERU
Scrubs Hope to Repeat Record
Last Year by Drubbing Nor
malltes on Home
The CornhuBkors are nearlng the
end of their season of hard work.
The game with Denver today brings
them one step nearer the end and
they haVo already began, the last lap
down the homo stretch of the -1909
From the tone of the Denver papers,
the Denver team seems to havo a
good chance for scoring a victory over
the Cornhuskers. This will bo the
first game of the season In which all
of the Denver regulars will be in the
game. Denver enthusiasts base their
hopes on the fact that they have a bet
ter scoring machine than Nebraska,
that is they think they have. They
have come to this conclusion by a
comparison of the scores of the Nebraska-Dakota
games. Nebraska and Dakota played
a tie game, 6 to 6, while the Dakotans
were defeated by Denver to the tune
of 10 to 0.
The Denverites, however, are woe
fully mistaken If they think the team
that, they are to meet this afternoon
is the same that played South Da
kota, the second week of the season.
If comparative scores would andlcate
anything, the Dakota game at Denver
would make it seem that Denver Is
not very strong.
The Cornhuskers will slightly out
weigh their opponents, but the Den
verites havo the heavier back field.
The Nebraska hack field will not av
erage over 155 pounds, while the Den
ver backs will average 175 or better.
Nebraska Rooters Ogranized.
So far the Colorado weather has
heen excellent, and If It continues so,
the Denver Post estimates a possible
attendance of 6,000. Preparations are
also being made by Nebraska men in
Denver and the neighborhood to or
ganize a rooting club for Nebraska.
Tho Denver Post says, "A meeting of
all Nebraska rooters and all who wish
to join that section, Including Colo
rado University, mines and all oth
ers, it is expressly stipulated, will-be
hold at tho Albany hotel at 1:30 Sat
The game will begin promptly at
2:30, and the lineup will be as fol
lows: Denver. Nebraska.

Scrubs Play Peru.
While the Cornhuskers and Denver
are fighting it out In Colorado, the
Scruhs will engage their old enemy
at Peru. For several years past the
Scruhs and the Normalltes havo met
regularly in their annual battle. The
games havo always been cloBe and In
teresting. Last year the Scrubs
brought down a strong team and were
' able to take the schooldads' measure
to the tune of 8 to Q. This year the
Scrubs are stronger than ever and
they .ought to run up a much larger
score. They havo already met and
held tho strong Mornlngslde team to
a tie, and. the players declar.e that
they can take Mornlngslde
from their own gridiron and beat them
by at least three touchdowns.
Tho Scrubs have some of tho most
promising material seen on a fresh
man team in years, and under tho
skillful guidanco of Assistant Coach
Harvey they havo developed wonder
fully. Tho Scrubs are always handi
capped In having to learn and digest
so many styles of play, but this
year's team has taken Minnesota,
Iowa, Kansas, and Denver formations
and developed them bo woll In a few
days that they havo been able to
give tho varsity all they can handle.
Potter, quarterback and captain of
the team, Frank and Wood halves,
Gibson at full, Hornborgor at center,
Warner at end, and Kositaky at tacklo
are all considered varsity caliber, and
will make a strong fight for positions
on tho regular team noxt year. Other
promising momhers of the team aro
Curtis, Franklin, Bley, Dunleavy, Hlb
ben, Krugor, Zazeck, Ray, Elwoll,
Smith, Barbour, and George.
One member of the team, at least,
will not be unknown to tho Normal
ites. Jimmy Gibson, whoso punting
was bo great a factor in winning last
year's game, will be back and is ex
pected to boot the ball harder than
With such a strong lineup the
Scrubs ought to have no trouble In
winning hy a good margin.
"THE CREATION" NEXT TUE8DAY
University Chorus to Give Big Musical
Following the custom of several
years, tho university chorus will give
a musical of unusual quality at convo
cation next Tuesday. Haydn's "Crea
tion" Is the selection to be rendered
and the chorus will he assisted by
soloists and an orchestra, In addition
to tho piano and organ.
The following soloists will appear:
Miss Annette Abbott, Mr. Aden En
years, Mr. Charles H. Miller.
ENGINEER8' HOP LA8T NIGHT.
Good Weather and Attendance Made
Second Affair a 8uccess.
The engineers' hop, which was held
lost evening in Fraternity hall, was a
distinct success In. every particular.
The hop was well attended and as the
evening was far from stormy those at
tending the dance were not incon
venienced In getting to or from the
hall, as a week ago.
John Hogo was chairman of the hop
and Oscar OlBon master of ceremo
nies. This Is the second hop given
by the engineers, and owing to the
success of those In the past two years
it is a custom which in all probability
will become permanent. It was the
third university dance of the season.

CLOSE CAMPAIGN FOR
Y. M. C. A. ENROLLED 157 MEN
IN FOUR CLA88E3.
PHENOMINAL RECORD FOR THE YEAR
Classes Will Not 8 tart Until After
Thanksgiving, Although a Prelim
inary Meeting Will Be Called
Before That Time.
The two dayB' canvass for men to
register for tho missionary coursoB
nffornrl liv (ha linlirnrilfir V XT n A
has closed, with 157 men enrolled. I
This enrollment Is three or four
times larger than that of any previ
ous years and marks tho most ro
markablo browth that department of
the association work has ever seen.
While the campaign closed with 157
men enrolled for the work, the enroll
ment ought to go to 175 when all of
the returns aro In and some of tho
remaining canvassing Is finished.
The enrollment was remarkably heavy
In the law school, nearly all of the
men registering for tho course entitled
"Our Foreigners, or the Immigration
Problem," which will be in charge of
Frank A. Harrison, tho editor of the
Nebraska State Capital.
Work Was Divided.
The enrollment of tho men was in
charge of E. K. Andrews, and tho task
of enrolling tho men was split up Into
sections, each of which was in charge
of a sub-chairman. Andrews had
charge of the enrollment of the mod
leal college, G. A. Festal of tho lit
erary students, M. R. Gllmoro of tho
law school, and W. O. Forman of tho
engineers. Each of these men had
charge of a committee of six or seven
men, and the departments were thor
Altogether It was one of the most
complete- and thorough canvasses the
missionary committee of tho Y. M. C.
A. has ever made, and the results,
while slightly under the mark set for
tho campaign, aro far from unsatis
factory. The number which the asso
ciation tried to onrp.ll In the work was
two hundred. While they fell over
twenty-five short of thlB, yet the In
crease over former years has been
very gratifying to those In chargd of
tho wprk. During the past only twenty-five
or thlrty-flvo men have been
enrolled In the classes.
Tho campaign was started Tuesday
evening, when the entire committee
met for 6 o'clock dinner In the ban
quet room of' tho Temple. At that
time tho plans for tho campaign wore
qarofully explained in detail to the
men and the chairmen gave their In
structions. On Wednesday night tho
committee met again for supper in
the same room and discussed tho
progress of the campaign and the
plans for tho next day's work.
Four Courses Offered.
The courses for which the students
were enrolled are as follows:
The Uplift, of China," a course in
charge of Rev. H. H. Harmon.
"The Challenge of the City," led by.
Rev. W. W. Lawrence. Tho text for
this course Bhows tho great problems

In tne Nebraska part of tho collec

runs through tho various periods
showing' the limestone, sandstone,
shale, chalk rock and duno sand,
weatnered and unwoathered, and a
numher showing numerous fossils.
Then there are all tho subfaclal soils,
besides a number of specimens from
the Black Hills. There are samples
of most of the important building
stones. The remainder of the collec

mon rocks, such as coals, grantlnes
Tho specimens are UBed In tho
geograpny laboratories. rmero are
about sixty-five of tho specimens. Pro

FOR NOVEMBER 1.
EXPECTING A TOTAL Of OVER 4,000
With Present Rate of Increase Ne
braska Will 8oon Be the Larg
est University In
' the West.
That tho Unlvorslty of Nebraska
will break a posslblo rulo of universi
ties In tho Ihcroaso of registration 1b
a possibility this yoar. Tho rulo of
tho Increaso of tho various universi
ties Ib that tho lncroaso of ono yoar
1b decreased proportionately In tho
following year. This Is porhaps woll
oxampled In this school. In tho yoar
1904-5 tho lncroaso In registration
was 215. Tho noxt yoar tho registra
tion increased only 180, and tho fol
lowing year tho lncroaso waB 216.
This provos tho rulo that tho largo
lncronso of ovon years brlngB tho
smaller IncroaBo of tho odd years up
to tho average.
Chango This Year.
Tho hopes of tho administrative of
ficers of tho unlvorslty this yoar has
boon to bring tho total registration of
tho studonts of tho unlvorslty up to
4,000. Thoso hopes woro Increased
when tho total of tho students of tho
unlvorslty who registorod tho first
semester was figured. According to
authentic sources just announced
thero havo boon 3,402 students who
havo passed their registration slips
over tho counter In tho registrar's of
fice. If to this number Is added tho num
ber of students who will register for
the winter torm of tho school of agri
culture, thoso who may still register
for tho first somester, tho now stu
dents for tho second semester and tho
possible Increaso of registration in tho
school of music, tho hoped of tho ad
mlnlstartlvo department havo sound
basis for 4,000 students to register In
tho University of Nebraska.
For tho past two years tho numbor
of students who havo registorod In tho
unlvorslty havo boon abovo throo
thousand, and this year this number
has boon far in oxcess of that figure.
The figures for these years aro as
1st Som. Total.
1907-8 2,812 3,237
1908-9 3,154 3,611
Nov. 1 approx.
1909-10 3,402 4,000
These totals of November 1st might
vary slightly If greater detail was
taken In compiling them. Thero Is a
slight chance that double registration
may occur and ono or two other mat
ters which cause tho figures to vary
to a slight degree.
That the university , has had a
steady growth in the past few years
can be easily proven by the rate of
the Increaso of students. For the
past five years tho average increasing
number in the registration has been
about 220. fPhls number can be -found
by subtracting the registration' of one
year from that of tho year following.
Tho figures for tho Increase In the
number of students entering the uni
versity are as follows:
1908-9 : 36113237
This makes for the five years a to
tal increaso of 1098, or an average in
crease of 220 yearly. That this uni
versity will ultimately come to be the
strongest university in the west in
regard to tho number of students la.'

dents who register increase at the
1 same rate as they have in the past
