Plan Proposed to Cut Down Counters
In Present Game The Idea
Launched by the East.
Coach Stiehm has received a letter
irom Coach Stagg of Chicago Univer
sity, for any suggestions that the Ne
braska coach may have In regard to
new football rules. Stagg is one of
the foremost college coaches In the
country and Is the representative to
the .National Coljeglate Athletic, Asso
ciation from the middle west.
Tho N. C. A. A. elects several mem
bers to the football rules conference,

the Cornhusker band will be heard in

Among the suggestions that Coach
Stiehm is making is one for the re
duction of the field goal from three to
two and one-half points. This will
not permit a team to kick two field
goals and equal an earned touchdown.
In case of a blo'cked kick which
does not cross the lino of scrimmage,
it is to bo retained by the team get
ting the ball and is put into play at
the point where It was stopped.
There should also bo an Increase
in the number of downs within the
twent-flvo yard limit.
"As far as I can see." said tho
coach, "there is nothing the matter
with t'e presont system of playing.
The complaints on tho forward pass
are entirely from the big eastern
teams who found it difficult to run up
high scores this past year. They fa
vor the old style of the game which
the qoaches were brought up with,
and the newer open play is different
from their style and they are finding
It difficult to change."

CHOOSING OF EXECUTIVE HEAD
NEXT TUESDAY PLAN8 TO
Who will head tho new Omaha Club
of the University of Nebraska is the
interesting political question of tho
moment on the campus.
Entirely unique in its purpoBo, that
it is formed wholly and solely to boost
Nebraska in Omaha and tho vicinity,
the progress of the formation of the
organization Is being watched curious
ly by the student body.
The election of officers will bo held
at the meeting of the club, Tuesday at
11:30 o'olook. Sam Carrier, acting
president, is one of the .popular
choices for its head,' but it is rumored
that there will probably be several
nominations for the "Job."
Omaha High School will probably
be visited by a representative of tho
Omaha Club and a short talk made to
the class which will graduate In Feb
ruary on the advantages of coming to
Nebraska for their college education,
instead of attonding some school
which, although farther away from
home, Is undeniably no better.
During tho year several promlnont
speakers will bo obtained to speak
to the Omaha High School Juno grad

Most of tho laboratories on tho
campus will bo open during part of
the Christmas vacation for tho boneflt
of those who wish to mako up their
work. The attitude of many of tho
instructors is against tho gonoral uso
of this privilege, for during tho vaca
tion school work is supposed to be
temporarily suspended. Howevor, for
those who, on account of sickness, or
for some other good reason, are be
hind in their work, tho laboratories
will be available.
Thursday, Friday and Saturday
mornings of tho last week of vacation
the Chemistry labs will bo open. Tho
Physical laboratories and the M. 12.
shops will not be open. Botan, Geol
ogy and Geography laboratories will
be open nearly all tho time, whllo tho
Zoology laboratory may be secured
by arrangement with the instructor.
In nearly all instances the hopo was
expressed that students taking first
and socond semester studies would
not count on this time, unless it was
absolutely necessary. Advanced stji
dents, howevor, may take advantage
of It as they choose.
POOR ATTENDANCE AT VIPERS'
WELL WORKED UP PROGRAM
APPRECIATED BY BUT
The people of the city have more
class than tho student body, at least
so it would appear from the attend
ance at vesper services last evening.
The audience, small for the merits
of the program, consisted of a, largo
quota of towns-people, who know a
good thing when they hear It It
would seem, by way of comparison,
that -'the average college boy would
rather read "Diamond Dick" than Ten
nyson, or to watch a "street carnival
than listen to an artist on the stage.
