The question is one which has
long been agitated. An attempt
was made a number of years ago
to carry tho reform to a practical
result, but It finally failed.
With the rumor that prices for
cab hire wore to be raised, the In

back and forth until last week Phi

Tonight will witness the opening of
tho series of conference basketball
games In which Nebraska will partici
pate. Ames agricultural college has
been marked as a victim of tho Coru
huskerB, and 'in all probability nothing
short of a double-headed harvest will
be the fortune of tho representatives
of the Scarlet and Cream.
The "dope" on the games between
Nebraska and Aiucb, which will bo
staged on tho armory fioor tonight and
tomorrow night, is extremely favor
ablo to Nebrapka. By way of compar
ative" reasoning, "Blde-llnerB" - hnvo
soen cause to give Nebraska tho bet- -ter
end of good prospects. The Ag
gies on their present tour have not
fattened much on "bacon." It Is evi
dent, however, that this result cannot
bo .assigned directly to poor playing.
Dame Fortuno has scrupulously plotted
against them, first by placing ono of
their best men on tho sick list, then
by spraining the ankle of an equally
ablo player. It is announced, on tho
other hand, that these physical im
pediments that recently hampered
them will not be factors in' tho Ne

night, 3323. SInco Nebraska defeat
ed the Methodists even more decisive
ly than the latter did tho farmers, tho
predictions are not exactly disheart
ening. To give a better Insight to the
Knnsas series of conference games, a
review of the Ames-Kansas double
header may be advantageously taken.
In tills encounter Kansas was twice
victorious, winning first by 48 24 and
second &4 19. Missouri also got tho
proverbial "angora" property of tho
farmers,' and threw rays on tho situa
tion that Misfiouxlans "may have to be
shown" to bo incorrect.
Tho Nebraska line-up for tonight
will probably start as follows: Hiltner
at center, Cnrrlor and Frank guarding,
and Hutchinson, Gibson and Owens. to
fill tho basket.
Coach Field declares that the Ne
braska varsity players aro In better
condition now tlan they have been: at"
any other tlmo this season, with due
preparations outlined for tho Missouri
Valley championship, Tho results of
this week's games will also give tho
Nebraskans a basis for planning tho
northern conquest of Minnesota which
will .occur next week.
Tho policy of giving informal dances
after basketball games will be started
again Saturday night. Because of light
attendance it was considered inadvis
