Athletic Success of University Team
Good Advertisement for the
Institution.
When a Nebraskan says that he iB
attending ono of the best schools in
tho country and. without a doubt, tho
best school In the middle west, he is
not making an idle, windy boaBt, but
Is giving a statement that is born out
by statistics and factB recognized as
authoritatlvo from one end of the na
tion to tho othor. And disregarding
any consideration of the numerous
phases of school life at Nebraska that
might be cited as evidence of the gen
oral superiority of the school, there is
ono department of student activity
that haa by itself proved, not only
that old Nebraska is the most active
and flourishing university in the mid
dlo west, but that she gives unbound
ed opportunity for increased develop
ment and success.
Such a department is that of ath
lotics. For the past few years Nebraa
ka haB been persistently forging her
way to the front in this line of devel
opment until the victories of the pres
ent year have given her, up to the
present time, undisputed claim to two
Missouri vallej championships in the
most important brandies of athletics
football and basketball. Not only
that, but to put it very modestly, slit
is doped for a place in the track world
that will be very little below her
standing in the other lines, the possi
bllitles promising second place at the
least.
Champions in Football.
After winning the valley football
championship of last year Nebraska
made her lirst move towards success
for the pifesent year by making "Jum
bo" Stielfm head coach. By strenu
ous and determined training from th
first, Stiehm built up his famous
"Stiehm rollers" which, under the cap
able guidance of Captain Shonka.
bowled over one after another, the
teams of Kearney Normal, Kansas Ag
gies, Missouri, Ames Aggies, Doane
and Kansas. With the exception of
Minnesota, which is not In the valley
conference, with no difllculty whatever
Nebraska simply ran all over every
team she met until the Michigan
game. Tliis game marked the high
est climax ever readied in the football
world of the west, being one of the
seven greatest games of the year in
tho United States, and Nebraska more
than showed herself equal to tho most
strenuous ordeal in her football his
tory By the confession of all who
saw the Nebraska-Michigan game, no
matter from what school they hailed,
tho Scarlot and Cream not only dem
onstrated its superiority over the
northern aggregation, but Bhowod It
solf equal in fobtball ability to any
school in the country with tho excep
tion of two or threo of tho largest in
stitutions In tho east. Tho Michigan
gamo Is an ovont In Nebraska's his
tory of which she 1b Justly proud, and
is but ono evidence of Nebraska's
growing importance.
Progress In Other Fields.
With equal vim as that displayed in
football, Nebraska ontered upon her
championship basketball Beason. With
Owen Frank In the head position the
team, by means of wonderful work on
tho part of each individual man, suc
ceeded In being beaten but once that
by Minnesota and tied but once, and
in finally pulling down tho Missouri
valley championship In basketball.
In track she haB succeeded In de
feating MinneBota. but, as a result of
several unfortunate accidents or ail
ments befalling tho men on tho road,
she lost to Kansas. With ample op
portunity still opon In tho soason, tho
school's reputation, uphold so ably
horetoforo, is in little danger of bolng
lowered by any futuro defeats as tho
toam Is bolng consistently coached
and gaining Increasing Btrongth as tho
senson advancos.
While, without a doubt, the general
efficiency of a university cannot bo
measured by Hb athletic prowosB, It
Is aafe to say thot tho athletic records
of any institution aro very apt meas
urements of tho strength and volume
or its school spirit, and school Bplrit
as ovldenced In tho various linos of ac
flvlty Is the oBBcnco of Bchool life.
With a school spirit that has succeed
ed in placing Nebraska little bolow
tho best bcIiooIb in tho country in ath
letics during tho closing year, tho
prospects of tho school are no longer
a matter of speculation as to its fu
turo capability for offering tho host
opportunities for individual develop
ment in both general education and
school activities.

CO-EDS PROMINENT IN
AFFAIRS AT THE UNIVERSITY
Since last fall, whon tho girls' root
ing Bootion was inaugurated at tho
football games, It has boon provon be
yond a doubt that tho co-eds can play
a largo rolo in University aotlvltlos.
Many comments, which havo boon do
cldrdly favorable, aro called dally to
the attention of tho student body In
regard to this section, and tho vaBt
good it did, and will do at futuro
gamoB.
"Tho Trail," which Is anothor all
L'nivcrsity event, is managed entirely
by tho co-ods, and, It cannot bo said
that It has over boon managed poorly.
This Is ono of tho Boclal functions that
1b looked forward to by all tho stu
dents, and is another afTalr whoro tho
glrlB show that they play a largo part
in school activities.
Tho Y. W. C. A. is yet another foc
tor of University life where tho co
eds havo oxcIubIvo control; this, llko
the rest, is nlwayB woll managed.
There is no doubt but that tho Y. W.
C A. does a largo amount of good,
and for thlB tho co-eds aro entitled to
all the laurels.
The "Girls' Club," while only a ro
cent organization, promises vaBt op
portunities for tho co-eds to exert
their ability In University afTalrs. ThiB
club requires a comploto Bet of ofllcors
and a board of control. These posi
tions are already considered an honor
to tho fortunate co-ed, and In timo
they will prove even more so.
Accordingly. It can easily he seen
that the co-eds have a place in Uni
versity affalrB, and a prominent one.
Latin Club Banquets.
Tiie Iitin Club gave their annual
banquet last night at the Llndell
hotel.
The programs were hand-painted in
the Italian colors. Illuminated capi
tals and letters printed in the Btyle of
the Codex Palatlmns, one of the earli
