A score of GG to 0 tells tho talo of
Nobraska'8 victory over Peru Satur
day. Forward passes and end runs
gained the big sharo of ground for tho
While the football victory of Sat
urday over tho Peru normal team does
not rank among tho season's hardest
games, tho overwhelming result
served ono doflnito purpose. It
brought out tho fact that "King" Colo
has moro good material to work on
than .Nebraska has had for many a
day. Tho coach was highly ploased
at tho Bhowing, which, with tho now
rules to contend with, was bettor than
most followers of tho gamo had an
ticipated. With everything In favor of the
.(Cornhuskcrs, both in weight and ex
porlqnco, it is difficult to predict with
any degree of certainty what tho re
sult of n really hard gamo would be.
Howover, In offensive play tho Univer
sity team showed up, particularly well,
especially on tho forward passes. A
few attempts during tho first two quar
ters failed, but on tho wholo the
passes wore accurately mado and well
' Warner and E. Frank 8tar.
Warner at quarter and Ernie Frank
at right, half put on a remarkable ex"-
hibltlon of speed and head work.
Warner" was at his best on end runs
and several times worming his waj
through tho Normalltes for b!g gains
made somo o'f the longest runs of tbr
gamo.' 'E. Frank was a big ground
gainer with a number ot long end
runs. Lofgren and Cbnuntcr, on the
ends, both played in good form.
Aftor the showing South Dakota
-made against MlnnoBota tho gnmg
noxt Saturday 1b looked forward tc
with conBldorablo' Interest. This score
would indicate that South Dakota has
been doing soma hard work and hat
some new men who aro playing a fast
gamo. In view of Nebraska's score
against Minnesota last year, which It
not bo very different from South Da
kota's this year, next Saturday ma)
bco a lively llttlo tusslo.
Minor Will Be In.
Minor, who was out of Saturday'f
gamo on account of credits, will doubt
less bo able to go In Saturday. He
haB removed ono "obstacle," and will
take an examination In tho second
thlB week. Owen Frank was out las
night working on -goal kicking, and al
though he had a muddy field to con
tend with, ho seemed to bo back ir
Bomethlng like old tlmo form.
Nebraska's back field has como It
for more or less criticism, the princi
pal fault apparently bolng tho lack of
weight. It Is truo that tho back field
is as light as Nebraska has had for
somo timo, but what Rathbono, Wnrner,
HaBcall and tho two Franks lack In
weight they certainly mako up In
speed. And in tho gamo, according to
the new rules, speed is supposed .to
como first, weight afterward. Of
course more or less weight 1b an abso
lute necessity, but after tho showing
of speed mado against Peru, criticism
of the back field will bo at least a lit
tlo less severe
Manager Eager has provided a uni
versity girls' section In tho center of
the reserved section of tho grandstand.
It was at Drat to bo at tho ond of tho
section, but tho center has been railed
oft and tho seats aro now the best on
tho grounds.

men" woro present by scores to got ac
quainted with tho freshmen. Tho at
tendance was cut somewhat by the
conflict of rushing parties by various
fraternities. The usual Y. M. C. A.
stunts, with new variations, lent hilar
ity to the occasion. Randall Curtis
of Omaha was chairman of tho com
mittee In charge.
New Addition to the Plant Collection

Tho twenty species of cactus, which
Dr. Bcssey ordered from New Mexico,

Candidates Busy.
Yesterday afternoon saw tho back
ers of tho two candidates taking ad
vantage of tho last few hours before
tho election, and soliciting votes foi
their favorite. Evorywhero on the
campus groups of senior political lend
ers could bo seen, talking over the
chances of their particular candidate,
and comparing notes on "possible
things that may happen to make It go
against us." Ono student said that he
had been approached by a half dozen
men during a slnglo half hour while
he was sitting on tho railing nenr the
Administration building. Somo of
them wero working for Sturmcr nnd
others for Raymond. Tho workers
last night woro nil pledged to their
candidate to labor until tho election
meeting was called to order and oven
until tho vote Is finally cast Then,
and then only, will they tnko time tc
draw a deop sigh and wait breathless
ly to hear the returns.
Both Men Claim Victory.
Both candidates are working hare
and both claim tlmt victory cannot gr
to tho other fellow. Sturmor hns
centered much of his campaign among
tho "laws" and the engineers. Hr
figures that ho will carry the voto hi
tho law college by a big majority, but
on the other hand tho friends of Ray
mond claim a load among tho laws:
They state that Ttfthough Stunner
claims to havo almost every senior
law lined up, that actually Raymond
has doflnito pledges from over fifty
per cent of tho laws. The engineer
"vote, It Is thought, will bo solid for
While both men have organized n
strong band of friends to assist In the
campaign, It Is known that neither Is
governed In his actions by any sort
of clique. Tho campaign, while one of
tho most aggressive and oxclting in
years,' has been exceptionally clean.
While some of tho admirers have been
scraping over tho relative- "qualifica
tions of the two candidates, the candi
dates themselves have refused' to
"sling mud" or "run down" the op
ponent, which Is usually tho case In
tho ordinary campaign.

lows: "Tho first board of rogonts de
signed University hall as thoy be
lieved It should bo constructed. This
plan they thon submitted to Gover
nor Butler of Nebraska for his ap
proval. Such, howovor, was scorning
ly not forthcoming. Subsequently,
Govornor Butler presented to tho re
gents a design radically different from
tho ono previously opened for his In
spection. This tho regents In turn re
jected. "Govornor Butler consequently
agreed to comply with tho request Im
plied In tho ruling of tho regents.
Upon adjournment of tho board of re
gents, howovor, tho construction of
University hall .proceeded according
to tho plnns formulated by Governor
Butler and his architect Students,
thoreforo, may bo reassured that Uni
versity hall Js not a reproduction of
plans designed by any previous board
of regents. Tho credit must bo at
tributed,, to px-Goyornor Butler."
