Gibson has proved tho star of the
Nebraska team this year, playing a
most remarkable game In the matter
of teamwork. Tho big fellow is easily
the best man of the Cornhuskers In
passing tho ball with two hands, and
his sureness and quickness has made
him a valuable man to Coach Stiohm,
a man on whom many of Nebraska's
plays wore centered.
In addition to being behind none of
the team In teamwork, Gibson scored
("a total of 1,02 points for Nebraska in
the games .this year, a record of
which, any pla,yor might bo proud. He
had not miBsed a gamo thuB far.

RALPH MOSELY, HEAD OF .THE
1910 CORNHU8KER, 18
Even an ox-editor 1b not immune
from tho official axe, as is evidenced
by tho removal of Ralph Mosely, edi
tor of tho Cornhuskor in 1910, from
the present staff of tho annual.
Mosely had occupied tho position of
Joke editor Blnco tho appointment of
the Cornhuskor staff last fall. Tho
"rush" season for annual copy has
set in and a sufficient number of
jokes haven't been forthcoming, so
Editor-in-Chief Dana Van Dusen re
moved Mosely Monday and appointed
Sam Buck, until recently editor of tho
Nebraskan, to tho place,
An additional position, that of joke
editress, also was created by the same
official mandate, Miss Ruth' Munger
receiving the appointment.
It is the Indention of the Cornhuskor
management to make tho jokes an
especial feature of the annual. j

RUMOR NOT TRUE.
The rumor, which was start-
ed yesterday, relative to a bus
pension of the publication of $
fc the Nebraskan was wholly un- $
true. The paper Is in debt, but
$ It has been debt for several
years. It's subscription list Is $
not yet complete for the second

after YOUR NAME is on the

JAMES WARREN HUTCHIN8 DIES
AT HOME IN FALL8 CITY. ,
HIS DEATH (ONES AS A SURPRISE
He Was Member of Phi Delta Theta
and 8plkes Fraternity Brothers
to Attend Funeral.
I Jamos Warren Hutchins, tho second
student to bo claimod by typhoid
within tho past few weeks, died yes
terday at his homo in Falls City. Ho
contracted tho diseaso six weeks ago
ago when tho epidemic wqb at its
worst, but did not formally withdraw
from school until tho middlo of Janu
ary. It had boon understood that
nearly all tho students who woro sick
wore improving, so tho news of his
death comes as a shock to his friends
in school who -had not realized that
his illness was so cktlcal.
Hutchins was registered in tho Col
lego of Agriculture, taking tho For
estry course Ho was a member of
tho Phi Delta Thota fraternity and of
tho Spikes society.

beon very fortunato as compared with
tho people of the city. Out of tho

disease, and most of tho casos havo
As far as can be learned, those who
aro out with tho diseaso now aro Im
proving. Dr. H. H. Waito, University bac
teriologist, said yesterday: "Thoro is
no danger of typhoid from tho city
water at presont," so tho danger from
the diseaso seems to havo passed by
