Torches for the big parade to bo
held tonight are on salo In the Nobras
lean ofneo, In the basement of the Ad
ministration building, at 10 cents per
torch. The numberMs limited and will
likely fall far short of supplying the
demand. Torches may be secured to
day at any time until 8:30 p. m., when
the parade will commence, or until the
supply is exhausted.
If the supply of lamps runs out be
fore the demand is satisfied students
who cannot secure them are expected
to take part anywny. The next thing
to frantically brandishing a fiery can
of kcroBcne is making a noise that
can be heard out at Haveldck. All the
torches in creation would make a poor
.sendoff parade JX Jhex were not' ac
companied by real university noise.
But the combination of flaming torch
and howling student will do the work,
and will at least awaken the people of
Lincoln to the fact that the fall term
haB opened. '

From the interest shown among uni
versity students yesteflay the parrtde
promises to be the biggest event of its
kind the1 school has ever seen. Hun

Freshman Gets Free Shines as a
Re-
. suit of the Olympics
Because the freshmen "won the
Olympics a certain sophomore, who
will not allow his name to bo pub
lished, has been compelled to stoop to
tho humble task of shining a fresh
man's shoes. Before the Olympics thiB
sophomore "wagered with thiV freBh
man after this wise: If tho sophomores
won the freshman was to shine the
shoes of the sophomoro four times,
and if the freshmen won the sopho
more was to polish tho shoes of the
freshman three times. The sopho
mire had refused to bet without odds.

"OLD MAIDS" POOR vTEACHER8.
Do Not Create Proper "Atmosphere"
for Young Women.
President Frederick W. Hamilton
of Tufts "college has said that unmar
ried women teachers should not teach
college girls because their influence is
harmful.
"I do not believe that young girls
who are Just passing into young
womanhood are in the proper en
vlronmen if they are continually
brought into close personal touch
with elderly unmarried women. Tho
larger proportion of -women's , col
leges aro in (the hands of women
teachers, however, and the education
al atmosphere of the place is feminine,
the peculiar type .of femininity devel
oped by highly cultured middle-aged
unmarried women. Now, while' this
type may be very fine individually, It
is not the proper dno to create tho
atmosphere for the girlB at tho forma
tive period ortheir lives. In the lower
grades- of the schools, too,- and in the
preparatory schools their Influenco is
counteracted by the influence of the
home. All elements that tend to nar
rower college girls should bo ellmV
inated,"

OF THE 1910
Captain Mellck, Anderson, Btes,
Swanson, and Hayes to Travel to
Madison November 19., x
The annual try-out for tho univer
sity cross-country team was hold last
night at 4:20, Anderson, Mellck,
BatoB, Hayes, Swanson, and Kennedy
(freshman) winning tho laurels. The
first flvo men mentioned will compose
tho cross-country team that will con
test at MadiBon, November 19th.
The try-out was one of the moBt suc
cessful and interesting 'over held nl
Nebraska. The fact that the start
and the finish of tho race were staged
on the athletic Held added much to
tho Interest, and caused many of the
loyal supporters nnd enthusiasts to go
out on the field and watcii tho event.
Fast Time.
Tho official time of the race was
J2&1&L Considering -.alL-the. ..cJrciiiiu.
stances this is exceptionally good
time. The weather wasn't what it
might have been to pull off a fact race
nnd the roads in places were pretty
slow to run for4 time. Tho time, how
ever, usunllyrequired at tho big mid
dlowcst Intercollegiate ero'ss-country
race lies between 28 and 28:ifo. Tho
time of 28:54 1b considered good for
a race held so early in tho season and
under Bomewhnt adversa circum
stances, .
The Just lap of the race on tbe ath
letic field was a good one. Three run
ners, Anderson; Mellck and Bates;
were running almost even, and even
at the close of the event there was
some doubt as to the order in which
they finished. Anderson was given
first by a small fraction and Bates
and Mellck tied for second honors.
Twelve Men Entered.
Twelve men were entered in the
event: Thto confident belief that
there would be at leaBt fifteen was
shattered at tho last moment by- fhe
non-appearance of some of thd
"doped" proBpectives. The order Tri
which the contestants finished isas
follows, excluding ' Kinsman. Atkins
and Chaplin, who did not finish:
L. R. Anderson, 28:54.

Lzlcar Out.
One of the moBt significant features
of tho wholo oyent was that Q. Lzicar
did not contest. Ho wns on ttic var
slty team Inst yoar and lias been in
training all this 'year. His failure to
appear haB not yet been accounted for.
Throughout tho year ho was "doped"
as a sure team membert consequently
there will only bo two. old men on the
varsity. Theso men are Mellck and
Andorsou. The newcomers, BatcB,
Swanson and Hayes, however, showed
great form in tho try-out and are ex
pected to bo good representatives for
Nebraska at Madison.
Dr. Clnpp, who had clmrgo of tho
ontlre. event, did not venture any
prophecy at the cIobo of tho raco on
tho team's success at Madison: He ex
pressed much disappointment nt the
(act that Lzlcnr did not comq out, and
is likewlBo unfamiliar with tho circum
stances which prevented him from so
doing. Ho nlso mndo tho stntemept
that the team was not quite as evenly
balanced ns he would like to liavo had
thorn. He affirms, however, that by
the time of the Madison meet, he will
hnvo them working as smoothly as
npy Nebraska team that ever partlcl
pated in this event. .
For the first lap and a half of the
race on tho athletic field, Anderson
took ins lead and retained It through
out the race. Bates and Captain Me
lick soon Bhlfted to tho front rank
positions and also held thorn 'through
tho entire rntie". Kenedy, Hayes and
Swanson were alternately fighting for
third position for tho best hulf of the
race. Very few shifts in tho order
were made In tho Inst threo laps.
Dr. Clapp ncted as ofllclal starter.
Cherrington nnd Field were tho judgeB
of tho finish and time keepers.

"Get a megaphone," 1b tho lateBt
ordor from tho football headquarters.
Manager "Dog" Eager yesterday urged
all loyal Nebraska students to go to
Kansas well provided with 'mega
phones. "A man with a megaphone is
worth throe men without," is tho way
the mnnngor put it. "Small mega
phones nro bCst," he said, "and a little
scarlet und cream decoration helps
some.",
"At one of the games in recent
years, Nebraska entertained a bunch
of viBlting rooters, every man of whom,
was equipped with a megaphone, and
tho rooting wns simply great. Each
megnphono- had a ribbon shoulder
strap of the school colors, and when. J
not in . uso tho noise producer was '
slung from tho shoulder."
Manager Eager said last night that
ho was so impressed with the, appear
ance of that rooting aggregation, when"
marching four abreast as they, came up
from the depot, that ho feared they
would ,ou t root Nebraska. Nebraska
had hard wofk to keep paco with the .
twoNcoro of rooters with megaphones.
The yells fairly rung as ffom.an army
of rooters, when they got started. ,
"That is the sort of rooting wo want '
at Kansas," he said, "a megaphone is
a necessary part, of the game,"
... . .Yell Leaders Going.
A. M. Oberfelder and Nye More
house, tho university yell leaders-, will
go to Lawrence with the crowd. They
will be tbero wjth the big horns to tell
the enthusiasts when to break out and
keep them at it from tho start of tbe
game until tho victory is won, The

lively down at tho Kansas town. The
band is composed ot about slxty-flve
musicians this year.
