Vote of fifteen is unanimous Athletic Board Vote Elliott an "N" on the Recommendation of Captain Beltzcr, Manager Eager and Assistant Coach Harvey. Jack Temple was elected captain of the 1910 football team laBt night by the unanimous vote of the fifteen "N" men present. Temple received ten votes on the first ballot, a sufficient number to Insure his election, and ou motion the rules were suspended and the choice made unanimous. The three candidates were Templo, Shonka, and Itnthbone. Early yester day It became evident that Temple would win out and Rathbone to secure a unanimous choice switched his sup port to Temple. Shonka, the third candidate, withdrew after the first ballot and thereby gave Temple the unanimous vote of the team. The happy result of last evening's election is in striking contrast to the squabble of the past two years and bodes well for the success of the .1910 Cornhusker eleven. Both last year and the year before the election of a captain devolved into a partisan af fair and in both years resulted in splitting the team into two factions. The result was to create dissention among both the members of the team and its supporters and materially hampered the success of the coaches iu turning out a winning eleven. Harmony Prevailed. Harmony was the keynote of last night's meeting, and if the expres sions of the members of ' the team count for anything there is going to be an entire absence of all wrangling in football circles from now on. One thing at least Is certain, and that Is that In their choice of a cap tain the team chose a man who has every quality necessary to make him a leader. Jack Temple needs no intro duction to the students of Nebraska)1 His stellar work of the past two sea sons oh the football squad has won him an enviable place in the hearts of the student body. The newly elected leader of the Cornhuskers is a native of Nebraska. He was born at Lexington about twenty-one years ago, -whoro he still re sides. An all around athlete, he be came Interested In football during his high school years. He played three years' ou the Lexington high school teani before coming to Nebraska. . - Previous Experience. During his first year at Nebraska he was a member of the scrub eleven and there attracted the attention of the coaches. Last year ho played Bub full back. Ho won his "N" and with it great distinction in the Minnesota game during' that year. It was due to his star tackling more than to any other fact that the Cornhuskers wore enabled to hold the Gophers scoreless. He also broke Into the Iowa, Amos, Kansas and Qarllslo games of that year. His work this year at right tackle won him, a place on the, All Missouri Valley eleven, and secured him an honorable mention for a posi tion on the All-Western, " ' Jack is "well j known to 'all-the stu dent and his election' is every where hailed with the keenest satisfaction It Is folt Ythat with . such' a leader nothing can stand in the way of a sue cessful seasonfof 19J0. Jockfhimself said last night thnt the season was al ready starred and ..considerably en thusiasm aroused at tho meeting. Al ways an aggressive player, Jack is a; clean sportsman and In every way 'a perfect gentleman? Much is expected 8 ox- 8 8 8 of him in securing a winning eleven for 1910. Elliott Gets "N." Another source of satisfaction to the student body was the announcement that at the meeting of the athletic board before the election the matter of granting an "N" to Elliott was act ed favorably on by the board. The matter was brought before the board on the recommendation of Captain Beltzer, Manager Eager and Assistant Coach Harveyv The board when they had had time to consider the matter saw the justice of Elliott's claims and willingly granted jthe letter. This was only a fitting reward for a yqar of faithful work as every one feels that Elliott certainly earned tho honor. , STUDENTS' HAND BOOK OUT. Annual Publication of the University Y. M. C.

BTBTBTb r!!? "Sffi?. LEROY B. TEMPLE FOOTBALL CAPTAIN FOR 1910. CADETS TO OSE NEW RIFLES AFTER XMAS UNCLE SAM MAY 8HIP NEW GUN8 BEFORE JANUARY FIRST. TO REPLACE THE KRACJ0ROENS0NS Twenty-five Target" Rifles Have Beeo Shipped Indoor Shooting Will Begin as Soon as They Arrive. Tlie new equipment for the univer sity cadets will probably be ln'readi nesB for distribution by the beginning of the next semester. This was the announcement made by the comman dant yesterday afternoon, - . , Owing to 8omo delay in securing tho bonds necessary to secure tho rjfles from the government the order for their shipment waB delayed. Twenty five target rifles which were ordered for tho range detachment have already been Bhipped and are expected to ar rive at any time. The securing of the new rifles to gether with the Institution of the range detachment means that tho cadets of tho university aro to bo In structed 'along linos similar to those adopted In tho regular army. Shoot ing, according to Captain Yates, Is one of the essential parts of military education. Ho believes that an army which cannot shoot is of little value. Will Be Returned, As soon as the new equipment ar rives tho old guns will 'bo returned. Tho new rifles aro of the latest pat tern used In tho regular army at tho present time. Tho United States 1903 Springfield magazine gun chambering tho 1906 ammunition will replace tho old army rifles now, In use at tho unl vorslty. These aro the Krog-Jorgen-sen 1898 model and were In use In tho -XT 8 8 8 8 8 8 ( 8 regular army a few years ago. Tho Institution of a rango detach ment at Nebraska Is an innovation which Is being pushed with vigor. As soon as the now rifles arrive the men will bo given actual Indoor target practice. Tho work of tho rango de tachment Is In charge of Captain Dart lott. Its aim is to teach the men tho uso of tho rifle and accuracy in shoot ing. In tho regular army tho cap tains of the companies are the in structors in this work, but at Nebras ka tho captains are too buBy to take charge of this work togothor with their other duties as captains. Be sides this, the captains havo as a rule bad Httlo more experience than th.o men In shooting or tho handling of an army rlflo. Consequently tho range detachment was formed. It Is composed of men who havo had previous experience In tho work olthor with tho regulars or In tho national guard. Thp member of the detachment aro to form u nu cleus for a corps of Instructors. Tlwj must'bo'ablo to take charge of the company as well as to instruct in the nrt of shooting. s Captain Bartlott Is looking forward to forming a team of riflemen to com pote for tho National Rlflo Associa tion's trpphy.
