Highland Park Comes for a Contest
With the. Cornhusker Nine on
Wednesday Weather Han
dicaps Practice.
One of the largest squads over work
ing on the Nebraska track has given
hope to the heart of Coach Cherrlng
ton that the work of the Cornhusker
track team this year will he equal to
that of any teams that Nebraska has
been able to turn out in past years,
The record of the mon in the work
on the short and long-distance runs
was a factor of encouragement. The
work of the men on tho track so far
tills spring has boon watched very
anxiously by all the university body,
as it is known that the team would
have to develop wonderfully to over
come the handicap caused by the loss
of seVeral of last yonr'n veterans.
Some of the most promising -material
on last year's freshman squad did not
return to school, and this fact has also
aided in hnndicapplng the work of
Coach Cherrlngton.
Somo Good Records.
In tho meets held last week the
work of some of the men showed
promise of further records, and that
tho men of the squad will devolop a
winning team is now the hoje of all
the Kiii)i:orters of the Scarlet and
Croam team. In the hundred-yard
dash Reed made tho distance in ten
and one-fifth seconds,' and this is ns
fast as any of the men m the Missouri
Valley can cover tho dltnnco. In the
quncter-mile Captain Burke is one of
the- best men in tho valloy and it is
expected that he will bo ablo to hold
his own In tho coining meets this
Tho work of tho nfen on the squad
has met with sovero criticism on tho
part of ono or the city dallies. This
has caused considerable comment on
the part of a largo number of tho
moinl)ur8 of the student body and tho
action of the paper In "knocking" tho
work of tho university track squad has
met with severe criticism on tho part
of the student body. Tho larger por
- tlon of tho men on tho university
squad this year are now mon who have
had little oxperienco in university ath
letics and as It Is yet oarly in tho sea
son, tho records made In tho meets
last week will be cut down to a great
oxtont before tho opening contest with
Minnesota on the university athletic
Hold May 22.
Football Men Out.
The cold weather owl the high
winds for tho past'week have kept
tho mon of the football squad from
, working. Yesterday the squad was
out for work again. Sid Collins was
ono or tho men who donned a suit
and punted tho pigskin for "two hours.
This is Collins initial work In football
circles since the Carlisle football gamo
a year ago last Decombor. Ho will re
turn to the fold again next fall and Is
preparing to get 4nto condition for tho
contests noxt season.
The baseball game which wob to
have been played Saturday afternoon
on tlie athletic field between Coach
Carroll's pupils and the Cotner Col
legians was postponed on account of
the high wind and th,e cold weather.
The flrBt game on tho homo flejd will
be played Wednesday afternoon, -when
the Highland Park boys coma to battle
for nine innings with the Cornhuskors.
Tho Dos Moines bunch have had in
the past ono of tho strongest aggrega
tions that tho capital city has turned

they Intend to light the NebrnskanB to
the finish.
Baseball practice, which has alsc
been discontinued for the past three
dayB on account of tho weather, wnt
resumed yesterday and tho team
worked hard getting into shape for tho
contest tomorrow. Tho men nro work
ln.i.QQYerpomc the faulty loose play
lug which was dominant in tho re
cent game with tho Wesleyan Moth
odists, and the Bnnppy stylo in which
the Infleldors wont nfter tho pill yes

thiB fault had been overcome to a cer

Lincoln Hotel 8cene of Last Military
The last military hop of the season
and almost tho last university dnnco
of tho year was given by the non-com-
missioned ofllccrs of the battalion in
the Lincoln hotel Saturduy night. Ono
hundred and four coupler attended the
dance, which was a success in every
particular. Walt's full orchestra fur
nished the music. Tho dnnco was de
layed slightly owing to tho lateness of
the master of ceremonies. Ho wns to
have arrived in Lincoln on an early
train, but the train was late. Harry
Calno was chairman nnd Harry Hath

Northwestern Freshies pp Floor
With Sophs. fy
Two hundred and fifty freshmen and
sophomores of Northwestern Univer
sity Friday night selected tho banquet
hall of the Woman's Club in the Y. M.
C. A. building at Evunston as the Held
for ono of tho most furious class bat
tles that ever has taken place at the
When the struggle was over the
banquet hall, which earlier in tho
evening had been all perked up with
didoes and pink ribbons, looked like
Sun Francisco after the-earthquake.
When tho pollco finally fought their
way Into the place and separated tho
combatants the floor -was covered with
the remnants of wrecked ovenlng
clothes, crushed flowers, muddled
linen, broken furniture, shattered
diehoH, soups, entrees and lcos and a
smear or two of human gore.
Half a dozen or tho fighters were
on tho floor being nursed back to con
sciousness, and ono of them wub over
In a nearbyilrug store having eight
studies put in a gash under his eye.
The freshmen stnrted the trouble
outside of tho banquot hull, and the
sophs put the finishing touch on it by
bringing the battle Into tho banquet.
Having smeared tho lloor-well with
overythlng on tho tables, from napkins
to finger bowls, the freshmen proceed
ed to wlpo up tho smear with the
sophomores, who, being in evening
dresB, made excellent mops. Every
bit of dirt that they picked up showed.
When a section of dress coat or shirt
became too dirty for further use the
freshmen tore It off nnd used the clean
part of tho sophomore that was left.
After ten minutes of fighting, during
which overythlng in tho place had
been overturned, trnmplod on, broken
and thoroughly muddled by the invad
ers' boots, the light was still going on
oven morrler than when It-started. It
looked as though It wouldn't bo ended
until the iall Itself had been torn
down, so somo ono turned in a police
riot call'. That brought a. wagon load
of policeman to tho scone, and they
by a care freo and generous use of
.their clubs, soon drpvo the freshmen

Senior Finance and Play Committees
Are Engaged in Collecting $2.00
Assessment Play Will Be Giv
en at the Oliver Theater.
After numerous rehearsals and dili
gent work on the part of the cast, tho
senior play is rapidly rounding into
shape. Rehearsals have been held
every Tuesday and Wednesday night
since the try-outs in the early part of
February. Miss Howell is coaching
the amatour actors again this year
Und is very enthusiastic over the work
ueing tlonc.
At the last rehearsal the entire play
was given without the ubo of tho man
uscript. It wont along very smoothly.
The leading characters showed groat
Improvement In their work and ontcrod
into the rehearsal with a spirit that
was very pleasing to tho coach.
There are still two or three minor
characters that remain to bo selected.
However, they are not important
onough to interforo -with the progress
or tho play. Seniors will bo selected
for these parts in the near futuro and
from that time on tho whole cast will
rehearse regularly. Thero are alBo
two of tho minti characters who have
been unable to report regularly for
practice on account of sickncBs. They
havo committed their lines and will,
not hinder the prbgross of tho play.
Given June 14.
It lniB been deficltely decided, that
tho play will bo given on the 14th of
June. ' Two performances will be
given, ono in tho afternoon and ono
In the evening. It will ,ho given in
tho Oliver as the senior piny was last
The play and finance committees of
the senior class aro engaged in the
collection of the money that tho class
voted to levy on the members of tho
clnss. The assessment is two dollars.
Each senior who pays his two dollars
Is given a receipt which is good for
two dollars' worth or tickets.
Tho tickets -will be put on Bale in
two or three weeks. No partiality Will
be shown in the salo or these tickets.
They will bo put on salo in tho office
at the Oliver, and "first come, first
served" plan will be carried out. The
exact time that theso tjekots will be
put on sale will be announced nt a
later dato in tho Nebraskan.
Tho prices this year will bo 50 cents
for tho mntinoe, and fiO cents, 75
cents and $1.00 for the ovenlng per
formance. Theso prices proved v.ery
satisfactory last year and it is thought
that they wHl meet with general ap
proval this year.
Tho play Itself is something differ
ent from any that has over been given
by a senior class In tho university. It
is strictly a modorn American play.
Clydo Fitch has written soma of tho
most popular American plays of lato
years and "Tho Climbers" is ono of
tho most successful of them all. Laqt
year's senior sjass gave a modern
European play that proved very suc
cessful. "Tho Climbers" is probably
tho hardest play that has been at
tempted by a class of tho university
for many years.

vanco sale for the 1910 Cornhusker
hud readied tho total or 804 copies.
This did not Include reservations
which had been requested, but just
that number of books which have
been part or fully paid for. Tho total
sale edition will be limited to about
!)."0 copies, tho romninlng fifty copies
going to people who havo boon Inter
ested in getting tho Cornhuskor out.
In former years it was tho custom of
the management to givo ono book to
onch member of the staff, but owing
to tho fact that a largo part of tho
staff fails to take any interest in tho
making' up of tho book, a different
plnn is being followed this year. Every
member of the staff is required to
mnko his deposlt-to-mnk'o sure of a
book and to thoso whom Editor in
Chief Mosoley and his managing
pditors doom entitled to. a compli
mentary Cornhusker, jx book will be
given nnd their money refunded. At
the present rate, which has averaged
better than twonty-flvo books n day
since tho book was placed on file, tho
remaining books will all be subscribed
for within ono week or ten days. After
that timo theso books cannot bo ob
tained under any circumstances, as
tho required paynjent In advance
makes It certain that every ono who
has subscribed will pay tho balance
and obtain a Cornhusker. .
Tho first hundred pagos of tho 1910
Cornhuskor nro now In press and iho
rest will shortly follow. Tho-flnanclol
outlook "for tho 1910 Cornhusker Is
also very encouraging in view of tho
