NEBRASKA TEAM BACK
FROM SOUTHERN TRIP
CAPTAIN PERRY PRAISES TEAM
WORK OF CORNHU8KER8.
PLAYED THE GAME TO A . FINISH
Wlnplng was not Easy for the Jay

tended the Games, Espe
cially at Lawrence.
Captain Perry and IiIh basket-ball
leani have returned from their first
trip south. The Cornhusker Invasion
of the sunflower stato was not so
successful as was hoped for. While
away three games were played, the
Cornhuskors losing all of them. Al
though the team Is disappointed in not
whining nny'of the contests, they are
not discouraged by any means. Cap
tain Perry is still confident of putting
out a strong team and he Bays the way
the njen got Into the game on the trip
is ovldenco of It.
The- Cornhu8kers are n light bunch
this year, but they are fast, aggres
sive players. Any one of them Is cap
able of dumping a much larger man If
this style of play Is adopted. But this
is not basketball, and In the Corn
husker camp such work is tabooed.
it was by taking advantage of their
small floor and resorting to "rough

to put one over on the Cornhuskors
Good Team Work.
At Lawrence conditions were differ
ent, and in both games the Corn
huskers showed groat speed and team
work. With ono exception, namely,
tossing goals, the Ncbrnskans were
a match for their rlvalB. Especially
fast was the play In the first half of
Saturday's contest. Tho CornhuBkorB
developed a burst of speed that
amazed tho Jnyhnwkers and kept
them guessing. Kansas came back
strong In tho second half, however,
and in tho first few minutes tossed
goals almost at will, scoring 28 points
in tills half to Nebraska's (5 and mak
ing tho final score 42 to 1G.
The Hcoro of the first gamo at Kan
sas was .18 to 21. .In neither game,
however, can the scoro bo regarded us
showing tho relative merits of tho
two teams. The Cornhuskers wore
handicapped by their inability to toss
goals. It was not because they did
not' have tho opportunity either. Cap
tain Perry declares that the team work
of his mon was of the best and that
they had just as many tries at tho
baskets us their rivals, but for somo
reason ihoy could not locate them.
One thing that troubled tho Nebras
leans was tho glass backgrounds. Tho
backgrounds in the Nebraska gym
are of .wood and this makes quite a
Coach Hamilton of Washburn, who
has officiated ht Nebraska-Kansas con
tests tho past threo years, said that, in
his opinion, Nobraska had ono of tho
best bunches they have had In years.
Ho complimented Captain Perry on tho
team work displayed by tho squad.
The Kansas coach also said lie regard
ed Nebraska as a strong rival and that
he was proud to win from such a team.
Men Stand the Work Well.
In tho first game, with Kansas but
ilvo men were used, Porry, Ingorsoll,
Petrashek, Wood and M'tcholl. In
tho second eeveral substitutions were
made in tho last half, Hiltner going
In for Petrashek and Schmidt and Hut

other chnngo was made in jhjs game
that may bo mad permanent. Wood,
who has heon playing forward, was
switched to guard, Captain Perry tak

and his more accurate basket throw

An amusing incident occurred Im
mediately after "Woody" was switched
to guard. The first thing he did was
to turn and toss a goal for Kansas. Ho

LANDON 18 CALLED DOWN.
Kansas Manager Has Neglected the
1010 Football Schedule.
According to a statement mnde by
Athletic Manager Lanslon of tho Uni
versity of Kansas, not a single gamo
on. the Kansas schedule has been ar
ranged for next fall. Tho KansaB
management evidently has boon Idle
while all the pther schools in tho val

Kansas probably will take what Is
It was tho Idea of Manager Lansdon
this fall to arrange a game with Chi
cago University. He set about this
task on IiIb own hook when he re
ceived a call down rrom tho athletic
board. Tho board Bent a carefully
worded note to tho manager asking
him to show loss activity In taking
tho lnitlativo In scheduling now games
and reminded him that it was his duty
to confer with' the bourd on questions
of policy. Tho note also said in
strong terms that It would bo best for
him to givo up tho Iden of a Chicago
game and nrrango somo contests with
schools in the Missouri Valley.
.Tho athletic authorities are up In
tho air about the schedule aside from
tho Missouri and the Nobruska games.
Tho report comes, and Is denied, thnt
Kansas will piny Baker, Manhattan,
Colorado and Drake. None of these
games has been arranged. It looks
as If the Kansns schedule will not bo
so good as in the years past, and the
coaches are complaining because it
will not be so woll arranged. And In
the menntlme tho athletic board Is
dissatisfied with tho arrangements
made by Manager Lansdon and "Uncle
Jimmy" Green and"tho other board
members nrp busy drawing up resolu
tions on tho prospective schedule and
in calling Lansdon to tlmo.

sors Deeply Interested
in the Situation.
Tho statu historical society in
which Bovornl inombers of tho inlvor-
slty faculty aro leading splrltu, will
hold Its annual business session today.
It is considered llkoly that some Im
portant changes In tho mnnagemont of
the society 'h affairs may result from
For Bovornl months past thore has
boon trouble browing In tho affairs of
the society. Founded originally ns a
semi-official body or tho state to en
courage the collection and publication
or hletorlcnl data concerning tho' his
tory of Nebraska and to further tho
education or citizens" along similar
lines, tho society has for a numbor of
yours dono a valuable work. VonB of
material have boon collected and n
largo part of the collection has been
catalogued and described In printed
data. VnrlouB historical questions of
stato interest havo boon investigated
and much light hns boon thrown on
the early life nnd government or tho
History Does It.
During recent years tho society has
been managed by C. 8. Paine, who as
secretary, was tho dlroctor-ln-chlof of
its enterprises during tho periods bo
twoon tho sessions of the board of di
rectors. Ever slnco Mr. Paino look
office he has boon opposed by some
members of tho society nnd last year
the opposition was possessed- of con
siderable strength. This 'year still
furthor opposition hns doveloped and
today a hard light will be waged to
prevent the further possession by tho
proeent secretary or his office.
It Is charged by Mr. Palno'B oppoiit
entH that he Iuib utilized tho prestige
and funds of tho society for personal
profit. Tho secretary Is also tho lead
ing backer of- tho Morton Nebraska
history which has been tho subject of
considerable comment during tho de
vious process between its Inception
and the publication of tho first two of
a sories of threo volumes. Tho history
Is a private affair and certain members
of the eoclety object to having tho of
ficers of tho society also connected
with tho history.
Specific charges against Mr. Palno
are that ho hns employed In tho ser
vice of tho society incompetent assis
tants at exorbitant salaries, those as
sistants being also employed In work
on tho Morton history. Other Irrogu
lnrltles are also claimed.
Secretary Pal no's, side of the case
Is practically stated by a denial ot all
the allegations of his opponents. He
contends that he has administered the
affairs of tho society for fho society's
good and that his connection with tho
Morton history' has been for tho solo
purpose of putting forth a book -worthy
of tho state. Ho denies in detail the
stories of salary grahs and challenges
