CANDIDATES OUT FOR
CAPTAINCY OF TEAM
THREE MEMBER8 OF FOOTBALL
TEAM MENTIONED FOR PLACE.
NO ACTIVE CAMPAIGNING BY MEN
Temple, Shonka, and Rathbone Talked
of for Leadership of Next Year's
Cornhuskers Indoor Events
to Come 8oon.
IntoreBt in football circles Is now
contorod In tho question of a loader
for next year's team. To date tho
names of threo possible candidates for
captain of tho 1910 CornhuBker eleven
have been mentioned, with the possi
bility of a fourth man entering tho
race lator on. The mon promlnontly
mentioned for tho placo are Temple,
Shonka, and Rathbone.
None of these mon aro doing any
active campaigning themselves, tho
matter being left entirely to their
friends. Supporters of none of them,
however, aro lacking. Owing to tho
fact that tho athletic board has not
yet doclded what 'players aro to re
celvo "N's" for this year's work, It is
a little hard to tell just what support
each man may have. Tho question of
at least one man's receiving an "N"
remains for tho board to decide.
Choice 8hould Be Unanimous.
Tho campaign so far haB been qtflet,
at least on tho surface. There scorns
to bo a general feeling that tho choice
of a captain ought to be by a unani
mous voto in order to avoid any of
tho disagreeable feeling following the
last two elections. At least two of
tho candidates have expressed this
opinion, and tho plan seems to be the
one generally favored by the majority
of tho students.
Of courBO it would bo rather diffi
cult to sccuro a unanimous choice. In
any event there Beems to bo a gen
eral understanding .that factionalism
should not onter Into tho contest. In
former-years tho lino has been drawn
between "barbs" and fraternity men.
Last year's election in particular was
a drawn, contest botwo'on tho two fac
tions, and it was not until after tho
athletic board threatened to take tho
matter Into their "own hands that a
compromise was finally agreed upon.
Even then much dissatisfaction and
oven charges of fraud resulted, and
affected the teitm throughout the
Should matters come to Buch a state
thlB year it Is more than likely that
tho athletic board will take the mat
ter into their own hands and appoint
a captain as they threatened laBt year.
Tho threo men who have thus far
been mentioned for tho position have
all shown their ability as members of
this ydar's team, all aro three-year
men and any ono of them ought to
' make a good leader.
Indoor Athletics Picking Up.
Tho announcement or tho Mar
quette Indoor meet that was given in
yestorday'B Dally brings to mind the
faot that Chartor Day is not far dis
tant. Tho annual Indoor athletic meet
to bo hold on that day Is to bo made
an intorclass affair this year. Last
year it was made a dual contest be
tween tho fraternity and "barb" teams
and resulted in tho killing of a con
siderable of tho Interest shown In the
contests. By making it a contest be
tween the different classes more In
terest will bo manifested. Tho an
nual' "frat" meet will probably be held
some time before February 15, and It
Jb possible there may bo a ''barb" meot
also. Some work In preparation for
these contests is already being done.

some of the very best talent of tho

The cast is working hard and neither
time nor energy will be spared in
making it ono of the successes of tho
Tho play will bo staged with ex
treme caro as to detail. Fine cos
tumes, both character and modern in
their nature have been procured to
mako tho scenes pleasing from an ar
tistic point of view. Appropriate
scenery has been Becurod and will add
greatly In producing tho English ef
fect necessary to the correct setting
of the piece.
The caBt of tho play was carefully
selected from among tho best talent
In tho club, and In the representation
of their parts. they aro doing excellent
work. Searle Davis, who showed so
much talent in tho senior play last
year, will take the leading part. His
ability to adapt himself to any part
makes him especially valuable as load
ing man. Ho gets Into tho character
with Bplrlt and animation and makes
everyone wonder "What Is tho matter
with the professor?"'
Yalo Holland needs no Introduction
to tho university public. His part in
tho play, as doctor to the professqr,
shows him off to groat advantage. His
utter abandon makos tho character ho
is trying to play a real one.
Miss Tully, as tho professor's secre
tary, takes tho part of tho leading
lady n tho. play. Miss Tully Is a prom
inent member of tho club, and has dis

Some good work Is expected of Mr.
John Alexander, who takes the' part of
Dr. Yollowleavo, and who is very well
suited to tho part. Miss Esther Dally,
as sister of tho professor, 'is well
placed In a character part Her pre
vious work in tho club plays has made
her a valuable member. Her last ap

In "Tho American Citizen." Miss Ada
Morgan takes tho part of tho servant
of tho professor in an especially pleas
ing manner, flho gets Into tho char
acter with enthusiasm. Nye More
house, Paul Yates and Laurence Coy,
who appeared In tho various plays of
tho club last year, are oxpoctod to at
tract considerable attention In this
production. Miss Naglo and Miss
Hoagland as tho English aristocracy
aro tho source of groat amusement
and add zest to tho play. Mr. Rush
ton as butler Is very clover.
With this strong cast oarnestly
working, "What Is the Matter With
