see tho custom of holding an annual
banquet in honor pi tho members of

honor of. tho men whowere defending

was ;the crtso, but thp loyalty of tbo
jnonof tho university then was of a
different sort than is found at Jo
braska today. College atliletlcB wore
"Btlll "a" now featuroTn flib university,
and many of tho men of tho institu
tion knew nothing about athletics,
and tho percentage of irion who cared
nothing- afrout' them wero much larger.
True It was that tho .men of tho
school no doubt knew that the team
was representative of the Institution
wRtch was then In its youth, and that
ihfiso. things were jpart of thogrowth
01 tno school, but -the development or
tho university was a thing which com
manded their attentlonvmoro than, the
support of the men ol the team who
wore endeavoring to make tho foot
ball squad of the university have a
reputation that could not be bettered.
Coming of Booth.
.With, tlio' coming of Booth to Ne
braska, football took on a now appear
ance, and tho efforts of tho students
wore centered In making tho team ap
preciate their support.; With tho all
victorious team of 1902 when NobraB
ka acquired tho title of tho "Big Out
sider" on account of tho triumphant
season .through which tho team had
paBsod, student enthusiasm know no
bounds, and all ,tho undorgraduates
concentrated their efforts to show the
men which had been led by Captain
John Westovor that Nebraska stu
dents wero behind them to tho core.
Nebraska spirit and enthusiasm
flowed freely from the fountain which
would not be quenched, and tho men
of tho school oven worked 'on the
minor details of "The First Annual
Banquet of tho Team of 1902" with an
ene'rgy'.whlch -today has . not been
Tho great outburst of student' ort
thuslaBm at that time would come
and go like thcnobbof he-tldornnd-tho
loss of a few battles in tho years
to follow seemed to give each under
graduate who was not at heart a truo
Nebraska man more of less of a de
spondent feeling. However, tho first
Professor Bruner Lectures on Forest

-rTho regular meeting qf tho. Forest
club' was held, "in Nebraska hall last
night. Professor Bruner addressed
tho foresters on tho subject of "Tho
Forest Insects of. Nebraska." -Profes-
roal banquet which was accorded the
members of the toam was followed
the next year by another "feed,"
which nearly equaled tho first, but tho
nanio was now changed to that of tho
Tho flow of tho tldo again carried
to the Scarlet and Cream school tho
greatest amount of enthusiasm that
has over boon shown, and tho year of
1910 was no exception. ThiB yonr
hap done moro to dovelop real enthusi
asm and real love for the university
than anything for at least fivo yoars,
and tho banquot which will bo hold
this year in honor of tho Missouri
Valley champions haB been planned
to bo tho greatest that has ever beon
Tho CornhuBkor banquot from the
day It was originated has beon con
sidered as a banquet in honor of the
football team alone. This 1b a view
which should no be'GEenT anlTtoday,
tho idea is growing that the Cornhus
kor banquet of the. future will be
chiefly In hcfnBr of all tho athletic
departments of the university ihBedd
of tho footbdll team alone. NobrnBlcn
Is one. of tho broadest schools in the
wostnB Jar as athlotlcd are con

phases of. .athlotlcs bo considered
when tho name "Cornhuskor" is an-'
piled' o the school, and. In the Corn,-
nuskor banquot or tnis year, tracic,
baseball, and basketball will bo given
a sharo of tho honor along with the
men of the football team.
Nebraska men afo Cornhuskors, and
through this title, which is applied
with as much frequency as tho term
"Gopher" is to Minnesota men or
"Jnyhawker" to tho men of tho Sun
flower state, wo havo become known.
Tho homage of tho men of tho school
to their athletes can bo paid in no
better manner than by their prosonco
at tho Cornhusker banquet of Decem
ber. 3. A banquet for Nebraska men,
and a banquet for Cornhuskors.
Plans have been made which are
