Two Hundred Students and Faculty
Members Attend Celebration "
of Football Campaign
PlnthtiHitlHUi for Nebraska and her
football team was the keynote of the
annual Cornhuaker banquet held in j
Ule Lincoln hotel last evening. Over
two hundred Htudonts and a dozen
mcmners oi uie uicuiiy, lugeiuui whu
a few nlunmi members, were present.
and Mio hall rang with th,o cheers of
the students as- they honored the
speeches In jn-fclse o'f the 'team.
One and all the sentiment of the
gathering was unti-knocklng. The
hard and conscientious work of the
team, its coaches and the faculty and
students interested in the manugc
metjt of the team in an effort to give
Nebraska the best they had in thorn
wa& brought out in all of the speeches,
and the spirit actuating knocking wna
deplored as something that ought to
be entirely swept out of the' univer
sity , Enthusiasm-RunsyljHlgh.-
This sentiment reached high pitch
when Professor Caldwell arose a lid as
a member of the athletic board sus
tained the action of the athletic man
agement and the team. He again took
the Hour following a speech by Man
ager Eager, and appealed to the stu
dent body to take his word for the
statement that the charges of mis
management were unfounded. In par
ticular he took up the criticism which
has been made of the scheduling of
certain games by .Manager EagV dur
ing the past season, and stated it as
his belief that no other action was
possible under the existing circum
stances. J. 13. Miller, who presided as toast
master. waB Introduced by Professor
It. W. Stevens, the composer of "The
Cornhuaker." He first Introduced Dr.
George ( Parkins of .London, Eng
land, trustee or the Rhodes cll61ar
ahip. Mr. Parkins, although not on
the toast list, happened to be in the
city last evening and was called on to
respond. Mr. Parkins told of the work
of. the Rhodes fund and of the work it
is doing for ttio Anglo-Saxon race. He
urged upon every Nebraska man the
necessity, not only of having the de
termination and the ability to do
things in the world, but also of having

Professor Caldwell spoke both wit

that football should be looked upon as
a sport, not as a battle. Manhood he

OXFORD MAN ADDRESSES
NEBRASKA UNI STUDENTS
DR. PARKIN OF RHODES SCHOL
ARSHIP FUND LINCOLN VISITOR.
THINKS AMERICANS ARE PROVINCIAL
Englishman Declares United States
Universities Give Students a
View of Things.
Cecil Rhodes and his sciolar.shipe
was the subject of an address which
Dr. Parkin of Oxford ' University, a
trustee of the RhodoB scholarship
fund, delivered before tho class In ed
ucation yesterday afternoon in 11207.
Dr. Parkin discussed tho life of
Rl'odes and his great Ideal which he
finally put forth to the betterment of
the education of the young Anglo
Saxon men. Rhodes, when he was In
school, was a great student of Oreok
and Latin, and especially was Aris
totle one of his favorite masters. Ho"
studied Aristotlo very Intensely and
from this master he took Ills motto
from which ho molded his" life.
Cecil Rhodes followed this Greek
motto and translated It as follows:
"Groat happiness in life Is to bo do-
rived from conscious pursuit of a groat
purpose." This motto Rhodes followed
earnestly and when ho died his last
words were, "So much to do, so little
Rhodes was a different man than
people thought him to be. Dr. Parkin
said: "People looked on him as a
great diamond man, but they did not
know his true character. His great
power lay In his ability to command
the. expansion- and. civilization of terri
tory. He added to tho British em
pire a- territory three times tho slzo
of Texas, and to further the civiliza
tion of this territory ho pushed tho
railroad' straight through the copter
of this territory. Today this railroad
Is neaVlng its completion as the Cape
to Cairo railroad..
A Broad View.
"Tho great idea of Rhodes wus to
hold a world viow 6f nil matters, and
bo now In his scholarship fund he has
developed this Idea. His controlling
thought ntong this line Was to bring
them to England and put them, in
touch with all of tho world. His idea
at first was in regard to England
alone, and then he extended it further
and gave' to the young men of the
.United States the rare chanco of be
ing' students at this great college of
Oxford, tho equal of which thoro is
pone'' in the wcfrld. 1 am'' reminded"
of tho greatness of this university
.whon I was asked to address the stu
dents of Leland Stanford University
some time ago, and had a chanco to
compare tho students who were mem
bers of that young ten-year college
with the members of Unit great stu
dent body of thq greatest college in
the world, founded by King Alfred
over a thousand years ago, and to
which tho universities and collogcs of
the United States should not bo com
pared. Americans Provincial.
"It has often been asked why
should young men be sent to Oxford
by the scholarship fund? These peo
plo do not realize the greatness of
this university in comparison with
the American universities. Men from
all over tho world are in attendance
there. With the great range of in
fluence with tho British empire on
sea and on the land in comparison
with that influence of tho United
States, tho men aro afforded a world
"People In this country got a provin
cial, view and aro prone to believe
that only in their, narrow sphere
does tho world move. At Oxford' mor
are brought there from world-wide
points and they pour their influence
upon tho students. Those tuon tnko
up this Influence and whon thoy re
turn to their own localities they
spread It about bo that their neigh
bors tako It up for tholr own mutual
benefit. Thus tho great ldoa of giv
ing to all men a world view Is scat
tered about. This Is tho reason mon
are sent to Oxford.
"Rhodes nlso wns a groat promoter
of athletic spirit and in this ho. laid
great stress on tho Importance of ath
letics uh n factor to increase tho mor
ality of mankind. The men who par
ticipate In athletics In England are
trained to use this part of their edu
cation as n factor to benefit their mor
alB, and this was the idea of Rhodes.
He Insisted that men who took advan
tage of his scholarship fund ho mon
who use tho sportB In a way as a re
llgiouB factor. This again Is anothof
benollt received from athletics that Is
not found in American colleges. All
thlngB at Oxford work for tho groat
benollt or mankind In educational as
well as athletic linos, which thing Is
not found In the universities of Amer
ica." James ) Coupo, 'OD, 1b muuaKli)g a

It is for Nebraskans that the two

' Good Advance 8ale.
Tlie advance sale of tickets ut Por
ter's is excellent, and if tho salo Jiolds
up as it has earlier in the week, the
largest crowd ever attending a debate
in Nebraska will hear Friday's con
test. Tho rivalry between the Go
