Xlinnosota has a very fast team. It
hajjonly boon defeated once thlB year,
atifc. will meet Chicago for tho cham
pionship of tho Big Eight. Tho team's
supporters are confident of winning
the games with Nebraska, but Coach
Hflwltt and Captain Perry aro deter-
mjnod to glvo them a close race for
their laurels. ,
JTho Nebraska team was not in as
good condition as it "was hoped thoy
woujd bo, but were in much hotter
sbSipo than whon thoy mot tho Kansas
3q far Nebraska has won six out of
thirteen games, but only eight of these
games aro In tho North Missouri Val
ley. Ames "has won tho samo number
in jtho samo territory, and consequent
ly. Nebraska and Amos tlo for cham
pionship honors. Another gamo will
probably bo scheduled between those
two schools to decide tho draw. In
case Nebraska wins tho team will
then bo allowed to play .Kansas for
the championship of tho whole Mis

Tho team will bo greatly handi
capped In tho remaining gamoB this
year by tho loss of Q. S. Potrashok,
who has playeda star gamo at center
for two years. Petrashok has gone
westfoitho Test of-tlie year;- His ab
sonco will bo especially noticeable onj
account of tho hard games which aro
yot to bo played with Kansas. Potra
shok oxpocts to como back next year
and fight for tho Scarlet add Cream.
Tho mon who wont on tho trip to
Minneapolis aro Perry, Wood, Hutch

son, Schmidt, Eager.
Tho fraternities aro showing up
stronger every day in practice. Each
fraternity is out with tho determina
tion of winning. Only one gamo has
been played as yot, but soveral oth
ers aro scheduled for today.
Immunity Bath To Be Taken From
All absences from class in tho law
classes must bo reported to tho de
linquency committee. This Is the
mandate lssuod throughout tho colloge
of law classos.
Tho students aro indignant at the
idea of being treated as aro tho ac
ademic studonts. Tholr immunity
bath which thoy have enjoyed "slnco
the memory of man runneth not to
tho contrary" is to bo taken away and
a sot of regulations directly attacking
tkjolr freedom is to be substituted. No
more will tho law studont bo ablo tq
"cut" classes as many times as ho
8eos fit without receiving a missiv'o
from tho delinquency committee. That
it is an outrago and an indignity not
to bo borno .is the opinion of tho col-lego.

A movement, originating with tho
Cosmopolitan Club at the Unlvorsity of
Chicago, Is on foot, looking to tho ap
pointment of a faculty advisor for for
eign students. Tho point Is mado that
a student who Is unused to American
customs, tho language, tho unlvorsity
systems and methods Is at a disad
vantage in his efforts to select his
c6urses, to comply with tho regula
tions, and to get tho full advantage of
tiro "university opportunities. If -there
wero someono familiar with his lan
guage towhom such studont could ap
ply for advlco and Information, It is
felt it would result In removing much
bewilderment and redound greatly to
his academic advantage. Tho CoBmo

matter 1b organized by students of for

tholr Interests in tho university, and
It hopes to present tho matter to the
authorities In such a light as will re

to bo pnesod upon. Tho fact that Chicago-
contains a moro varied polygot

Socloty Is quick to boo how Impor

needs on tho artist. In this way art
rcsombles all othor Industries. Soclo

for Its own social ends.
