Undoubted,ly one of the best nma

coln delighted a largo audience, at the
Tempio theater Saturday night. The
entire cast which presented "Christo

momber and displayed superior talent.
The stage settings, showed great caro
in arrangement and wero worked out
in a pleasing manner. All who wit
nessed the performance were compli

are no tense scenes and still 'the in

Mildred Bevins took the leading fem
inine part, Dora Hedway, and her act
ing was of a high order. M. O. Bates
as Mr. Gllbb proved .himself, an ef
ficient silent comedian, and although
ho only spoke one word througout the
play, applause and laughter greeted
him at every appearance.
The proud and egotistic father,
Christopher Jedbury, Sr., was most
aptly taken by S. P. Dobbs; nnd Alpha

was ably performed by Will Ross.
Harry Hathaway as Tom Bellaby
did some clever acting and never
failed to make the comical side of tho
situation appeal to the audience. Tho
difficult part of Nellie Jedbury was
played by Kntherlne Willis. One of
the most difficult moments of tho
whole play fell to her lpt, when' in the
midst of comedy she muBt bo sad be
cause of the departure of her brother.
This delicate situation could not have
been much 'better handled than by
MIsb Willis for the serious effect of the

make a fair estimate of the handicap.
., Coach Field will referee most, If not
aH, of tho 'events in the local compets.
Ben Cherrington will act as starter
.his afternoon. The meet, as an
nounced, will be strictly handicapped.
Some predict an unfavorable outcome
for the first compct becauso of the
moro or less Inaccurate handicap for
the freshmen. Better than havo any
scratch ovents, however, Coach Field
has mnde his own estimate of the
ability of- tho first-year men, which
will serve in the moet today.
First, second and third place rib
bons will be awarded in all of the
events. No' admission will bo charged
and it is urged that all Nebraskans
who are Interested in the success of
the Cornhusker track team make an
effort to see tho best material of tho
school in action.
-Those who. havoJi'erctoforo failed
to order a Cornhusker have a last
chance today. So many orders havo
been received that it was found nec
essary to make a Becond order to the
paper and leather iiiIIIb for material,
and as long as a second order is going
in, the Cornhusker management decid
ed to give students one moro chance
The orders .received bo far havo ex
ceeded the number of books printed
last year by 100. Orders ore being
taken- liulhc Library hall and at the
office in the Administration building.
Several samples of cuts and photo
graphs that will be used in the book

table in the library.
One now nnd attractive featuro of
this year's book Is the navel wny of
arranging material. It Is unlike any
thing over seen In tho Cornhusker in
previous years. Practically all mate
rial fs In except for literary and joke
departments- and the staff is fast
rounding this into shape.
