Sam Cotnor, former editor of the
Dally 'Nobraskan and oho of tho most
activo members' of tho sonlor law
clasfl, was brought forward Thursday
morning for tho position of Ivy Day
orator. This Is one of tho biggest
honors which a senior can obtain and
will probably bring out a number of
Cotnor took over tho management
of tho Dally Nebraskan tho first se
mester of last year; In his time, the
subscription list 'reached a point
nover attained beforehand. he orig
inated tho idea of haying a dandelion
day to rid the campus of this pest,
This year ho will represent his class
In tho inter-class debates. Cotnor
now holds tho senior law editorship
of tho Cornhusker.
Ivy Day is the occasion when the
senior class plants Its )vy at tho cor
ner of ono of the buildings. An Im
pressive ceremony Is rendered and an
address. Is given by somo member of
tho class. Last year this honor was
hold by Joseph Vodlva.
At this time the .Innocents for the
next year are announced.
A fast pair of basketball games is
what tho coming' contest with Kansas
will bo according to those who have
seon the Cornhusker team in its
recent practice. Every moment pos
sible to utilize since coming homo
from tho trip to Ames is being used
to et tho team into perfect shapo for
the conflict Friday evening. Coach
Stlehm has not roturned from his
mother's funeral at JohnBon Creek,
Wis , but this will not ln'torforo in tho
least with these games, as Coach Rey
nolds has- ticen in full chargo of tho
basketball team for somo time past.
Kansas has a fast team this season,
holding the championship of tho
southern division of the Missouri Val
ley conference. The Jayhawkors wore
considered lnvlnciblo until tho two
games played with Washington' Uni
versity last woek, when thoy mot do-
feat by a few baskets. Kansas, how
over, has more victories. to her credit
than Washington, so no contest of her
t'tlo is probable.
Games have boon played by tho
'varsity and freshman teamB each
evening In tho gymnasium. The team
will bo allowed to rest this evening
In order that it may go into tho Kan
sas gamo full of ginger. Not a man
was incapacitated because of tho hard
work on the last trip to Ames and it
is probable that tho whole squad will
havo a chanco to get into tho gamo
