Shall tho freshmen exorciso tho
privilego secured by their victory In
tho Olympics, and wear class caps?
This all-important question is to bo
sottlcd at the meeting of tho class
TuoBday at 11:30 o'clock in Memorial
hall. President Robert B. MacFarland
and many of tho moving spirits of tho
newly organized class aro in favor of
adopting distinctive caps. Inquiry
and debate on the subject has been
tho principal class occupation since
Theoretically, one of tho purposes
of the great annual class scrap is to
determine whether or not tho fresh
men shall have the right to wear caps
or hats to distinguish thorn from other
Most universities require froBhmen
to wear caps or hats as a sort of
brand indicating tat tho wearer is
green and under subjection to tho
upper classmen. Not so at Nebraska,
"Mas" Says "Yes."
"Now that wo have beaten the
sophs, wo intend to cxerciso our
rights," declares Prosidont MacFar
land; of the freshmen.
"If the freshmen want to wear
caps," says .Prosidont John L. Cut
right of tho second year men, "I
guess' they can, now that they have
won tho Olympics."
It is said that suitable caps can bo
ordered locally for sovouty-flvo cents
each and would be delivered within
If adopted, tho proposed cap would
probably bo of a quiet color and ordi
nary stylo, with tho class numerals,
'15, embroidered on tho front.

HIGH IN COUNTRY.
W. J. BRYAN TO LECTURE
NOTED COMMONER SPEAK8
MEN AT OLIVER SUNDAY
W. J. Bryan will glvo a lecture on
"Tho Making of a Man" at tho Oliver
theater Sunday afternoon at 3:30. His
lecture 1b a discussion of the condi
tions of life today.
The mass meeting is under the aus
pices of tho Y. M. C. A., and will ie
open to men only. It will be the first
of a series of fifteen Sunday afternoon
men's meetings.- -
Tho Blue Print, which Is tho offi
cial publication of the Engineering
society, will put out two separato edi
tions this year instead of the custom
ary single edition at the end of tho
Tho first copy will appear about
January first, and will contain all In
formation regarding tho engineering
department, besides a number of tech
nical articles by Nebraska alumni and
expert engineers from all over tho
country. The edition published at tho
end of tho year will bo substantially
tho same as tho first except that It
will contain entirely now material,
Michigan, Minnesota and Colorado
publish an Engineering annual, but
the BIuo Print Is considered to class
with tho highest in tho interest and
quality of tho material which it contains.
Nobraska and Amos moot In their
annual gridiron contest today, tho
Cornhuskor squad, twenty-ono strong
having loft Friday aftornoon for tho
Iowa war headquarters.
Nebraska Is expected to win, by tho.
supporters of tho team In Lincoln, and
by tho sporting critics of tho mlddlo
wost. Tho record of tho two toams
this year points to a largo scoro, 18 or
24 to nothing In favor of tho Corn
htiBkors, but if Nebraska gots two
touchdowns on tho Iowa Stato Cy
clone elovon, no Nobraska studont but
what will bo moro than pleased.
Ames Is 8peedy.
Ames has trained for spoed on its
team sacrificing power for speed.
Coach WilliamB knows tho Nebraska
backfleld is speedy, although light,
and he has built up a system of secon
dary defense that ho considors almost
porfect when working in accord with
tho first defending line.
Coacli Stiehm's men aro fast. Tho
scores they have run up on such
teams as the Kansas Aggies and Mis
souri, provo that it is a wonderfully
dovoloped offensive machine, and it
will go hard if Captain Shonka and
his braves cannot plow thoir way
down tho field for at least two touch
downs. On tho defonso Nebraska has
a stronger lino than Ames, wolghlng
.more, and with moro men of experi
ence in its makeup. Tho backfleld
contains two all-Missouri Valley play
ers and two othor men who aro hardly
to bo excelled in tho Valley this year.
Slightly outweighing tho Amos
team, with better men, bettor record
for tho year, and fighting for tho
championship which is already half
won, tho Cornhuskers may bo trusted
to come home with tho long ond of
tho score, although it will bo no joko
of a game.
About one hundred rooters accom
panied tho team from hero, some pay
ing their fare and some defying tho
mandates of tho railroads in tho mat
ter of free rides.
Tho band wont also to toot.
