Tho Gornhusker basoball toam was
dofeatud in tho second gamo with tbo
Kansas Aggios by tho scoro of 11 to 3.
Tho Aggies batted liko fiends, but
Thursday Beomod to bo tho Cornhusk
.ors Jonah day, mid thoy woro unable
to hit safely. Tbo Nebraska boys
fielded well und had they boonablo
to hit the bcoio urould havo been dif
ferent Owen Frank held down tho short
stop position In Thursday's gamo and
playod a remarkably good gamo. Ho
accepted seven, chances out of eight.
His throwing was a feature of the
gamo. Captain Grconsllt and Radcliffo
alternated behind tho, bat, while
Storms and Olmstoad did tho twirling.
Just one year ago yesterday tho
CornhuBkers played these same vie
torlouB Jayhawkers. Tho result o.
that game was a different tale. The
Kansans woro smothered by a score
of 14 to 3. It is thought that by tho
time they-ploy their return gamo here
later in tho spring tho local toam will
bo In condition to turn the tables and
got away with tho long end of the
scoro. Tho final result of tho season
cannot bo judged by tho result of tho
two games played in Kansas.
Freshmen to Play Doane.
The freshmen left this morning for
Crete, whoro thoy will play Doano this
afternoon. This gamo will probably
bo a fast one, at least Doano will have
to play somo very fast ball if any
showing Is mado against tho fresh
men, as tho organization composed of
first year men is a whirlwind.
Two important games bavo alroady
boon played by tho freshmen this year.
Thoy defeated tho 'Aggies last Satur
day by tho scoro of 15 to 1. The
Aggies wero outclassed In every de
partment of tho gamo, ospeclally in
tho batting. Tho freshies batted tho
ball nil over the diamond.
Wednesday tho first year aggrega
tion journeyed to University Placo
and played Wesloyan. Tho gamo was
a tio at tho end of tho ninth inning,
and tho Methodists won in tho tenth
on, account of an error. Tho batting
of" the university boys-was tho foatur'o
of tho gamo.

bin, second base! Howard, short stop;
Jamison, third base; Oliver, McKln

Rugby Might Be Quite Dangerous

served if It can Be Made
Reasonably Safe.
Inasmuch as there has appeared In
tho public press an account of reputed
privato conversation of tho chancellor
in regard to tho attitudo of tho Ne
braska delegates towards tho Kansas
City football conference, Mr. Avery
has given to tho NebraBkan tho follow
ing as an authorized statomont con
cerning his attitudo in regard to tho
"Somo timo since I wroto to Chan
cellor Strong asking him if ho regard
ed the KanBaB City conference as nec
essary inasmuch as it seemed from
tho press reports that tho national
football conference committeo was try
ing to make a revision in good faith
looking towards the elimination of the
principal elements of danger. His re
ply Indicated that ho thought than thn
conference wpuld still bo a very im
portant ono, and that bo hoped aB
many of tho Nebraska regents would
attend as possible.
Should Be Revised.
"I havo taken all along the ground
that tho rules of tho gamo Bhould be
bo revised that injuries to tho players
aro not to bo anticipated. It should
not bo considered necessary to havo a
surgeon on tho grounds. Tho game
should be no moro dangerous, and the
accidents to tho players should not bo
greater in proportion to those taking
part, than In baseball and other virile
sports. I am, however, Inclined to
boliovo that tho national conference
committeo should be accepted as work
ing in gbod faith, and that tho new
rules should bo given a fair trial.
Might Be Dangerous.
"I am Informed by experts that con
sidering tho vigorous way In which'
sports nro conducted in America, the
Rugby gamo might bo quilo as dan
gorouB as tho. gamo Is likely to be
under the now rules. Further, I be
lieve that tho American gamo should
bo -preserved if It can bo mado rea
sonably safe.
"While holding tho above opinions, I
shall endeavor to bo open-minded at
tho Kansas- City meotlng. I would
particularly, disclaim tho thought of
presuming to state in advance how our
regents will vote on any question that
may arise. I may add, however, that
If any decisive voto is taken tho Ne
braska delegates may bo expected to
show that unanimity of action and ex
cellent team work which tho members
of the present board of regents al
ways show in deciding matters of In
terest to tho university."
Professor Browned Well t Known
Students of 8tate.
Tho University of Nebraska appears
to be very fortunate In being able to
secure Professor Brownoll of Peru as
a member of its faculty In tho toach-
ers' college. His work Is tho theory
arid practice of teaching tho physical
sciences and ho is also made super
visor of the training school, where his
duties will be to assist in, tho super
vision of the .practice work in the
teachers' college high school.
Prof. Herbert Brown ell received his
academic work' at Colgate, his normal,
work at tho Oswego (N. Y.) state nor
maf, from which ho graduated and
later took post graduate work. He
holds his degree, of B. Sc. from Hamll-
ton college (N. Y.). Asldo from this
more, formal training; ho camo to-Nc"
braska in 1803 to tako his present po
sition as head of tho department of
physical sciences, with ten yoars of
publio school oxperlonco back of him.
Along with tho building of his depart
ment up to a position such that it
commands not only the-respoct but
tho admiration of his contemporaries;
ho has givon to tho high school and
grades manuals in physics, chomlB
try, naturo study .apd astronomy
which aro being adopted not only in
Nebraska, but in neighboring states.
Whllo Professor Brownoll is known
to all normal students as ono of tho
best instructors in tho state normal
school (many havo said In tho state),
ho is remembered by thorn as moro
than an Instructor, but rather as a
teacher in all tho breadth of meaning
in that word.
University, of Missouri Puts on An
other New Stunt.
How would you liko to bo graded on
tho way you spend your raonoy? That
is what is happoning to tho students
who tako tho first courso In homo co
nomlcs. At tho end of ovory month
each girl in tho class hands In nn ac
count of her expenditures for that
Ono of tho requirements for tho
next account Is that ovorythlng mustJ
be listed under olther necessary or un
necessary expenditures. Last month
tho glrlB wero not bo restricted, and
some, of tho lists wore headed: Chafing-dish
oxpenso, board, pleasure
church and Y. W. C. A., and Irregular
eating. .
Ono girl's pleasure column included'
nickleodcon expenses, what sho spent
for baskotball tickets, for music and
for having a guest at dinner. Sho
had another column headed "irregu
lar eating." Tho students aro allowed
to havo what they call a D. T. W. sec
tion In their account "D. T. W."
stands for "don't tell what,"-and this
section contains tho amount spent,
but does not toll for what it was
spent. Somo of tho girls who do not
begin to roako their accounts until
tho day before they must bo handed
In find this section convenient. Othor
students do not use it at all. Ono
girl, whoso expenditures ranged from
tho price of a cako of soap to her dues
for a danco, had overy oxpenso dated
and accounted for.
When tho different accounts aro
handed in the motives for tho expendi
tures aro discussed In class. Almost
an hour was spent ono day' In dis
cussing motives for buying things to
oat. .

His Inquiry and Claims No Com
munication Had With Ne
braska Chapter.
At an early dato In tho spring the
two mombora of tho Theta Nu Epsllon
fratornity held an audience with Chan
cellor Avory and doclared to him that
as thor woro Unable to make the
namos of tho members of tho frater
nity public without tho members who
belonged to othor fraternities opposed
to Theta Nu Epsllon boing In danger
of oxpulslon, tho fraternity of .Theta
Nu Epsllon had disbanded. '
For several years Theta. Nu Epsllon
has boon a fraternity In this univer
sity which has mot with unfavorable
comment in many instances, and on
account of this a conforonco of, sev
eral of tho alumni members of .the
organization was hold with the cban-
collor last year and he was told that
tho fraternity as It oxistod Ideally at
Nobraska had no connection with the
national council. In tho reform move
ment tho organization was compelled
to oithor mako public its membership
or disband. As tho mombers felt that
it was Impossible to dothe-former-the
lattor plan waB followed. '
Question Arises.
Tho action of tho former local chap
ter was taken In good faith by all. con
cerned, until under dato of March 1st
tho official publication of tho national
publlcatlonappearcd and tho chapter
of 'Theta Nu Epsllon at Nebraska was
listed in this publication as one of
tho chaptors of tho organization. This
matter was called to tho attontlon of
tho chancellor and ho communicated
with James W. E. Moss, president,
and J. E. Hasbruclr, historian of T. N.
E. In reply to tho chancellor's letter
theso men Informed Chancellor Avory
that at tho present timo tho fartoraity
of Thota Nu Epsllon as' a national
fratornity had been in existence for
but two yoars, and during tbatrt!mo
thoy had attempted to get into com
municatlon with tho .chapter at Ne
braska, but this -was an impossibility,
as tho members of tho chapter Inlhls
university has never answered their
communication. , , .. . t
Tho letters from' theso . officials of
tho nntlonal council of T. N. E. also
stated that the national fra'terMtyihTd
been reorganized upon a new , basis
and that tbo fraternity was attempt
ing to reform and live down the' dis
repute Into, which it has grown. These
men wished that tho chancellor or
eomo member of the faculty 'accept am
honorary membership In the fraternity
of T. N. E. In order that the1 fraternity
be'given a proper position In tho Uni
versity of Nebraska and so: that it
could bo re-established upon a basis
baying tho sanction of 'all-the .mem
bers of the faculty and of the' student
body. The letters' In all received from
thesojnen jild uphold the action-of the
members of the local chapter in which
they stated that they Wero local and
were not connected with the national
council, but did not re-echo the fact
the local chapter had disbanded.
