KEARNEY WITH EASE
PEDAG0GUE8 OUTCLASSED BY
COACH STIEHM'S MEN.
NEW PITCHER PRIVES A SUCCESS
Beckoff Holds Normalites Well In
Hand, While His Teammates Bat
Out Victory Score 9 to 2.
Kearney Normal proved fruit for the
Nebraska baseball team yesterday
afternoon, the Cornhuskers winning 9
to 2. Stlehm tried out a new twirler,
Beckoff, and the newcomer hurled
Bplendid ball. In only one inning, tho
Bocond, did he manifest any signs of
weakening. In this session the Peda
gogues scored their only runs.
Purdy pitched the eighth inning and
Rodman hnished the game. Haskell
and Underwood were the fielding
stars. The latter's unassisted double
play was one of the best features of
the contest. Both Oliver and I'nder
wood hit for three bases, the lleet lit
tle center fielder also poling an oppor
tune single. Neither team hit hard
and both made frequent errorB. The

A Serious Hoax.
The Bight of a white shrouded figure
whose head came off and rolled on the
floor was too much for a (Miicago un

petrated by other students, a cabbage
serving as a head. The faculty is now
conducting an investigation with ex

MANY INVITATIONS ORDERED.
Seniors Order Thousand Leather and
Two Thousand Paper Ones.
The ordering of the senior invita
tions, which ceased last Friday, was
unusually heavy this year. Chairman
Leonard reports that approximately
one thousand leather and two thou
sand paper Invitations were ordered.
Tho number of announcements sold
has not yet been estimated, but In all
probability will exceed fifteen hun
dred. Inasmuch as the Invitations aro
being printed in the EaBt, which will
require considerable time for their de

bo received; the announcements, how
ever, are in tho hands of a local

FACES BUSY MEETING
DATE8 FOR BANQUET AND DANCE
WILL BE CH08EN.
HOW PENDING REEORMS ARE VIEWED
Requirement of House Mothers Not
Considered 8erlously, But 8entlment
Differs as to 8ophomore Pledging.
A meeting of tho lntor-fraternlty
council will be held Monday night,
when many important matters affect
ing the (ireeka will come up for con
sideration. As only the active men will bo pres
ent, perhapB the moat Important of
tho matters will bo to decide on some
definite date for tho lntor-fraternlty
banquet and tho Pan-Hellenic danco.
Perhaps something will bo said
about Bophomore pledging, but thia
will doubtleBB be of minor considera
tion at this meeting.
Depends on Alumni Members.
With tho reorganization of the lntor
fraternlty council which recently ro
aulted In the doubling of the alumni
representation In that body there has
come an animated interest nnd much
speculation among the GreekB as to
what the Increased alumni influence
will have on future Inter-fraternity re
forms. If the attendance of the gradu
ate men can be enforced to a greater
extent than has heretofore been pos
sible and their Intereat stimulated to
ftt-higher- degreer tho balance at Inline
onco in tho body will, of course, bo
entirely In their hands. Tho main
question of Interest seems to bo
whether the new body will attempt
reforms that may be dlBtaBtoful to
tho active chapters or, from their
point of view, impractical.
Among tho more practical and con
siderate active men the new reform
has met with no very great opposi
tion. In fact, It 1b very generally con
ceded that tho change haB Introduced
into tho council a maturity of Judg
ment and degree of experience along
lines upon which the body will bo re
quired to legislate that havo been
heretofore noticeable more for their
absence than presence.
Don't Like Eastern Plan.
As to tho changes which It is ru
mored the new council will eventually
Introduce, many and varied aro tho
opinions expressed. Tho requirement
of house mothers and tho combining
of fraternity accounts under tho au
thority of a slnglo secretary are con
sidered very lightly and aro looked
upon as useless and by somo as ridicu
lous, in spito of tho fact that such
methods are largely used in eastern
As to tho sophomore pledging rule,
which is undoubtedly tho most dis
cussed "reform" among tho fraternities
at Nebraska, there is the greatest pos
sible divergence of opinion, and tho
preponderance seems apparently to be
on neither aide. On ono hand It 1b
claimed that throo years Is not long
enough to bo In a fraternity, that a
man Bhould be in a fraternity his first
year in school becauBo ho gets more
benefit in that year than any other,
that the rush week pledging rule is at
present broken enough as It is and
that tho sophomore pledging rule
would offer more of a temptation to
