WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1909.
With tho election on tho first ballot
or "Jack" Temple to captnln tho 1910
Cornhuskers tho Team of loyal No
braskans as to a possible Bcrap over
tho gridiron leadership, with attend
ant bad results upon tho moralB of
tho team, wont glimmering. Both tho
manner In which tho soloctlon waB
mado and tho character of tho man
picked Indicate that the 1910 team will
pull together harmoniously under a
leader who Is capable of working
courageously for tho Scarlot 'and
"Ler.oy Temple has been a notable
figure on the Nebraska Bqund ever
sinco ho appeared for practice during
his freshman experience. His ability
was recognized and ho has steadily de
developed until this year he played a
game which won the commendation
of sovere critics. His work has not
been as sensational from the view of
tho grandstand as that of somo other
'Players, but It has boon tho sort of
effort which stands tho inspection of
the mon who know. Temple is capable
of good ball and ho plays with the
roal spirit which Nebraska needs In
her football representatives.
Tho fact that the election of Torn-,
pie was mado with tho harmony which
characterized the choice Monday night
may bo considered tho answer of tho
"N" men to tho doubts which tho stu
dent body have had during the past
three weeks. Time and again the fear
of another disastrous division haB been
expressed. Tho 1909 "N" winners re
alized this and they answered It In a
manner which leaves no doubt of their
loyalty to tho best Interests of tho
team. It argues well for a unltod
eleven next fall.
THE DIRECTORY QUESTION.
The university directory has Just
been issuet, published by tho Y. M.
C. A. It includes Beveral featured' not
heretofore a part of tho Nebraska di
rectory which are noticeable Improve
ments. In vital respects tho book Is,
however, lacking, In common with sim
ilar publications of past years. It by
no means comes up to the standard
which shquld be, and could be, easily
Tho most essential point in which
the directory is a failure is in tho
lateness of Its a.pnearanqe. Why an
interval of thrpo mo.nths Is necessary
between tho ppppin qf school and tho
pubHcatlcn o a directory qf student
jb noi easily cpnjnrflnepau. The, tjme
whenadrector is, psf. .needed Js
yearly in tho year, , andjB, th,o tigg
0 O00000000000000000000000 o
as haB been IsBiied should bo gotten
out not later than November 1, and It
would seom ontlroly posslblo to pub
lish It by October IB. If this cannot
bo done with studont "workers, lot tho
promoters of tho book hire somo ex
porlonccd aid and chargo moro for
tholr book to cover tho Increased ex
pense. The Increased salo that would
roBult from having a directory whon a
directory Is needed and not two
monthB behind time would surely
mako up tho cost item.
Tho present directory can probably
rank ns ono of tho niopt Inexcusable
examples of mechanical errors that is
llkoly to bo found posing undor the
guise of an authentic publication. If
tho book had been hastily compiled
thoro might bo boiuo excuse for error
but with three mouths In which to do
tho work, the purchasers might rea
sonably expect something worth while.
Yet largo numbers of tho 1909 direo
tories havo pagos Inserted twice or
left out entirely, to say 'nothing of
minor typographical orrors. There are
132 pages in the book, which means
that it has taken approximately ono
day por page since school opened to
compile the publlcatipn. Such a
length of time should havo been used
Certainly tho directory Bhould bo
put out In better ahapo and in hnlf
tho time, or oIbo somo other organiza
tion will be justified In stepping in and

Tho bill this week at tho Orpheum
Is usually good. Songs by tho Misses
Ethol and Emma Hopkins, with elab
orate stage setting, hoads the bill
Bob Carl in and Qeorgo Clark, the Ger
man comedians, hit the high spotB in
their clog dancing, and Cook and Sto
von8, Impersonating a negro and a
Chinaman In a dispute over a laundry
bill, dovoloped appoplexlcal tendencies
in the audience. "Tho Lobbyist," a
short play traveling with hurrlcans ve
locity, although noisy, is making a hit
with thoso who know.
"Chasslno, tho podal and digital
shadow graphjBt," In spite of tho
alarming character of his title, man
aged to please tho audience with a
series of shadow pictures, performing
with both hands and foot. Tho Reed
Brothors put on somo delightful acro
batics, and the roller skating dance of
Earl Roynolds and Nellie Donegnn is
of tho tall variety. All In nil, thoro
