Meeting Local Club Will
Woodrow WilBon, formerly president
of Princeton University, and a candi
date for president of the United States,
will speak to the students of the Uni
versity Saturday while stopping in

ing will be one of the most notable
non-partisan affairs in tho hiBtory of
Governor Wilson will address the
students in the Temple at 9 o'clock
Saturday night. He will come direct
from the Auditorium to the Temple
Chancellor Avery, who Ib a personal
friend of Governor Wilson, will prob
ably be one the platform, but will

the desire of the committee in charge

to the occasion as poBsible. The Uni

will be but a cordial expression of re
spect and regard for hla scholarly at

COACH TESTS LINE
GIVES 8QUAD A STIFF WORKOUT
AND ENDS WITH 8CRIMMAGE.
NOT SATISFIED WITH RESULTS
Mastln, Gibson and Allen on Hospital
List Cornhusker Stock Rising
Whether or not the squad will round
out Into a well-balanced, aggressive
team is the question that Is bothering
the fans. Even though to the casual
spectator the team seems to be get
.ting their fighting clothes on, "Jumbo"
Is yet dissatisfied. Only once last
night, when the varsity plowed through
the whole "scrub" squad, again and
again, did he admit that the team
might bo able to play genuine football.
The coach spent most of his time
hiBt night in trying to strengthen the
regulars' line. The result of his work
was shown when tho varsity lined up
for scrimmage In the last fifteen min
utes of practice. Three times they
went through the "scrubs" for touch
downs. Potter was at the helm, the
line opened big holes, and the backs
hit the opposition bo hard that the
"pop" could be heard on the sldj) lines
Then Stlehm placed the ball on the
ten-yard line and defied the entire
strength of the "Bcrubs" to hold the
varsity. And once again the ball was
carried over the goal lines for a touch
down. (Continued on Page Three)
