QlrlB and athletics arc to bo lnsop
abloB at Nebraska this year.
In years gono by, glrlos havo boon
pormitted to attend a game nonw and
then, if Bomo nico boy asked them.
But the coming season they are to
ho the best part of the "show."
Thore will bo no reason why ovory
girl in the 'school cannot .attend
every game, and fool as much at homo
as Shonka on the gridiron. "When a
scoro comes homo, and tho band plays
and men throw up their hats and
try to 'follow them, the girls will havo
somothing to do beside giving a sym
pathetic little fominino shriek, that
sinks into oblivion 'ore it is uttered.
Black Mask Busy.
Tho Black Masks havo taken
things in hand and aro laying oxton
slvo plans to carry on tho idoa of a
girls' "rooting squad."
Thoy aro planning to profit by the1
exporienoe and things are going to
ho oven bigger and better' so much
so that to visiting schools, Nebraska
and her co-eds will stand for a new
era in athletics.
Will Be Effective.
TTho girls' -idea for tho "squad" is
effectiveness, not necessarily noise,
but an. effectiveness that will lot visi
tors, and all outsiders, know that Ne
braska co-odB have tho Alma "Mater's
athletic prostlgo as much at heart as
tho best of her sons.
Tho Black Masks aro Industriously
soiling season tickots. They consider
it tho duty of every girl who can pos
sibly afford tho price, to buy a book
and swell tho ranks of tho squad. Tho
prlco is $3.00, and thlB admits tho
owner to ovory game of the. year,
football, basket ball, and track.
It is ridiculously low, considering
tho price of one good game, or of any
good amusement.
Will Get Together.
Tho Black Masks havo a plan, by
which they hope to oncourago Fresh
men and to got out girls who are not
yet acquainted. Thoy ask all .such
girls to raeot just before each game
In tho girls' rest room, on tho first
floor of tho Armory, whero soveral
Black Masks will be waiting to intro
duce thorn around and to escort thom
over to tho athletic field.
'in fact, tho prospects ior the com
ing athletic season looks aB bright
from tho co-ed side as thoy wore
wont In days gono by, to assume a hue
of indifferent drab.

Now Three Bureaus.
Through this system, which includes

and place them in good positions.
This makes three employment bureaus
in use at tho University, tho others

Prospects for girls' basketball aro

though regular practice does triot be

Last year, because of a ruling of

the upper classes.
This year.- however, basketball will

Hard Schedule.
Tho schedulo to bo started today is
tho hardest that Nobraska has under
taken In years, having Michigan, Kan- .
sas, Amos, Missouri, Minnesota, on
it aB tho big gamoB, and Koarnoy,
Doano and Kansas Agricultural as the
lighter ones. But on tho othor hand
tho Cornhuskors aro looking in -splendid
shapo this yoar looking alroady
as If the wearers of tho Scarlet and
Cream would bo ablo to hold for an
other year tho championship of tho
valloy.
Kearney a Dark Horse.
As tho Koarnoy toamt Is practical
ly an unknown quantity the gamo to

No announcoment of tho Cornhusk

probably ubo a varlod Hnoup all

drill and light scrimmage work by
all tho squads.
Tho Thursday gamo was most in
structive to tho coach, as to tho work

lineup ,ln backflold and lino wore a
good tost of how, tho team worked
with the dlfforont players In, and tho
samo program will bo continued to

boon a Httlo lighter than Manager

good bunch of Nebraska rootors out
to witness the starting of tho season
and to give tho team good cheer in
the battle.
