Tho squad left Tuesday for tho battle,
stopping on Its way to defeat Drake,

Drake played a rough game, fouls and
slight injuries were many and a good

all-star bunch. Nine men, Nagle, Car
rier, Hiltnor, Haskell, Underwood,
Hydo, Striker, Hanzllk, accompanied

JUN. CONVOCATION A SUCCESS
GOODLY SIZED AUDIENCE LISTEN
TO NOVEL AND ENTERTAIN
NEBRASKA RANKS THIRD
THIS STATE HAS ONE COLLEGE
STUDENT FOR EVERY 135
Which has more college studen'fs
enrolled per capita, our own Nebraska,
scholastic Massachusetts, literary In
diana, or plutocratic Now York?
Probably most people hereabouts
would surmlso that our esteemed com
monwealth was trailing the list. Not
so. Nebraska ranks third among all
tho states In this respect and tops all
three of. those mentioned above. In
cold, plain figures, Nebraska has one
colle'ge student for every 135 persons,
being surpassed only by Kansas and
Utah. In tho total number of colleges
and universities In tho state, ten In
all, .617 students are enrolled.
MISS O'CONNELL TO TALK.
An entertaining and novel program
was rendered by the Junior class at
Convocation yesterday morning, a
goodly sized audience being in at
tendance, despite a slight misunder
standing among somo of the students
as to the location.
The Junior quartette, scheduled to
sing several selections, failed to ap
pear, It bolng announced that no four
Juniors with harmonious voices could
be found. Instead, W. W. Giddlnger,
assisted by Miss Margaret Kunkel,
sang one selection. Tho Junior trio,
consisting of violin, 'cello and piano
playerB, presented the other musical
feature. Two readings by Katherine
Yates and the Junior play announce
ment by Miss Howell were Interesting,
Miss Howell Interspersing a number
of witty remarkB among her state
ments regarding the forthcoming play.
An original and clever feature of
tho class history by W. L. Rosb was a
poem. The hlBtory told of the deeds
and glories of the class of 1913. No
little credit for the success of the
program is due to tho efforts of Je
rome Forbes, the chairman.
