Nebraska's big game with Michi
gan on November 25 will probably bo
reproduced in moving plcturos. As a
mothod for advertising tho university
nothing could bo bettor, for with pic
tures of the great 1911 Cornhuskor
aggregation and a phonographic rec
ord of the rooters' efforts, traveling
up and down the state, nothing but
physical inability could keep great
crowds of additional students from
coming to tho university next Septem
Stiehm Endorses Plan.
Coach Stiehm . was enthusiastic
when asked as to his opinion. "Noth
ing could please me or the team indi
vidually better than to appear on tho
moving picture screen in a game with
the best team Michigan has ever put
out. It would make the boys feel that
their efforts to give Nebraska a rous
ing good team were being appreci
ated." Varsity Likes the Idea.
A number of the members of the
team were asked as to thoir ideas on
tho scheme and all thought it would
be groat. "Why," one of the regulars
who made his N in 1910 said, "If they
did this wo would have so much foot
ball material here next fall that the
Missouri Valley championship would
be certain for another year. It looks
to mo ub though this ought to have
beon done long ago."
As the Chancellor is out of tho city
nothing definite can be learned as to
his approval of the scheme as yet, but
as it will not cost tho university a
cent, the films more than paying for
themselves by their exhibition, it is
probable that he will arrange at once
for tho taking of the pictures.

Members of the senior men's organ
ization declare they believe the pro
posed olub will greatly benefit the
university and swell its enrollment,
if formed as suggested by its boaters,
not as a political or. social club, but
with tho solo purpose of securing
more students from the vIcinityof
Omaha and tho eastern .part ot the
stato for the university.
"The club Is just what, has ; been
needed; for years," declares one of the
Innocents who is not from Omaha.
"Similar clubs of students from, other
parts of the state ought to bo formed
along the same lines, without polit
ical and social intentions."
Searle Holmes of the Innocents will
preside at the- mooting next Tuesday.

Case Up Before Authorities.
A case is up before the authorities
where a freshman girl copied a rhet
oric theme from a magazine. It was
so crudely disguised that she was at
once detected, and when brought be
fore the dean, she did not seem to
realize tho gravity of thq offense.
Idea Gotten From Upperclassmen.
"The fact that she got the idea from
an' upperclaBS woman to whom she
went for advice shows tho need of a
shouldering of responsibility by upper
classmen In the further development
of our honor system," said ono' mem
ber of the delinquent committee in
discussing tho case.
"Now during the pressure of mid
semester examinations Is a good time
to emphasize the university's attitude
toward such matters. I would show
less mercy in the case of an offense
of thiB sort than of failure in studies."
