"If tho present rcbollion is success
ful in establishing a popular govern
ment, China will become tho great
power of the world, and tho dictator
of all nations." This was tho declara
tion of Rov. F. Stanley Carson in his
address at Convocation Tuesday. Ho
has been in China for six years, 1b a
closo student of their national life,
and is highly enthusiastic over thoir
Tho speaker said in part:
"China has a population of ovor
450,000,000, and natural resources un
equaled anywhero in tho world, now
ontirely undeveloped. Couple these
facts with a standard which minimizes
tho cost of living, and it is nbt hard
to Imagine that she could revolution
ize tho economical world, or oven tho
oxistonco of European competitors.
"In tho past China has boon thrubt
in tho background by a Manchurlan
dynasty. Tho recent outbreak is but
an expression of tho movement which
has been developing for tho past 100
years against their rule. It is not a
mob, but tho determined uprising of
tho entire people, who must and will
"The Intelligence of tho populace b
far beyond popular conception. Tho
average Chinaman has a keenness of
mind, a - patience, a strength of- en-,

ods of civilization, there will bo no
limit to thoir power as a nation.

Tho second annual Military Ball will

successful dances of tho season. Tho

ImpresslVe than tho first one.
Will Be Formal.
Tho dance is tobe a formal. CadoL
officers will wear uniforms. Tho ball
room will be profusely decorated with
the stars and stripes.

A very positive announcement by

Those natty cadet regalias have ar
rived and are being delivered to tho
cad6ts at the office of tho quartermas
ter. This "dear, cute suit." aq tho
girls aro bound to call it, is tho big
expense of tho freshman year. It is
tho ono part of military drill which
makes a private feel like acting in an
unmllitary way and. saying some un
printable things. And. all just because
thoy cost money.
And yet, what would drill bo with
out a uniform? And how could tho
military band and tho military ball
exist if it wero not for those pretty
suits? Time was when uniforms wero
not worn by cadets at Nebraska, but
that was long, long ago. When uni
forms wero first adopted 'by tho mili
tary department, cadets woro them to
classes for half of tho day at least,
but moro recently thoy have beon
used only during the drill hour, and
for service wear at tho annual en
campment. . ,'
Tho athlotic board of tho Univer
sity met Tuesday aftornoon for tho
purposo of awarding 1 otters to tho
football men, of tho season past. Tho
list of men given "Ns" caused no sur
prise. Tho team has played with such
unison and with no injuries to koep .
any man out of tho gamo that tho lot-
tors will bo prosontcd to practically
tho team that started tho season.
"N" and "R" Men.
Tho men who won tho coveted dcco
ration wero Shonka, captain, Chaunor,
Elliott, Owen Frank, Gibson, Ahdor
son, Lofgron, Russell, Harmon, Horn
borgor, E. Frank, Swanson, Pottor,
Warner, Purdy, Pearson.

Delametre, Hawkins, Bocks, Halligan,
Israel, Appol, Young, Miller, Ovor-
street, Allen, Galatly, Becker, Stolk.
Will Not Go West.
Tho question of whether tho var
sity team will take a long journey to
tho western coast and play somo of
tho western teams was also taken up
at tho meeting.
It was not long discussed, however,
for thoro aro two strlngont Missouri
Valley rulos which stand In the way
of such a proposition, namely, that no
team which is a mombor of tho con
ference is permitted to play a gamo
on territory other than that of ono
of tho contestants; and second, that
no post-season gamo will bo allowed.
And then, again, in order to comply
with tho rules of tho conference, It
is necessary that tho gamo played
shall follow a request from a regularly
organized educational institution. la
tho present case the request came
from tho Seattle Nebraska Alumni
