Nebraska's Chances Have Gone Up,
But Stiff Proposition Expected
Is Trial for Gopher
NebraBka will meet the Kansas Ag
gies this afternoon in what will prob
ably be one of the hardest games of
the season The team is confident of
victory, but expect to fight all of the
time The coaches did not have any
thing to say last night about the game,
except that it would be a fight from
start to finish. The team will go into
the game in fine physical condition
with the exception of Pearson, the
husky tackle, who will not be able to
play out at all.
Last evening's practice was held in
one corner of the field, for the High
School lads were monopolizing the re
maining portion, and they sure did
root up the sod, too. If the Bun comes
out this morning the field will be in
good shape this afternoon, otherwise
it will be Bllppery and heavy The
game laBt night was very destructive
to the field, for the grass was torn out
and holes made in the soft earth.
No Overconfidence.
The practice the last week has been
steady and hard. Nebraska's chances
have gone up as the result of the show
ing made last Saturday, but It has not
imbued the players with overconfi
dence A stiff proposition is expected
today, and if the Cornhuskers come
out with flying colors the practice next
week in preparation for Minnesota will
be entered with a vim. The Gophers
have been holding Becret practice the
last week in preparation for the con
flict with the Cornhuskers next Satur
day The following Is the. lineup which
was given yesterday and will start the
game this afternoon.

Employment Bureau Busy.
The employment bureau of the Uni

buBy filling the applications of Btudents
who want work for Saturdays and leis

Rain' Rain! Rain! Jupiter Pluvius
(or is It Neptune), has Indeed allowed
his wrath to descend upon the city and
on our beloved campus In particular.
The very atmosphere is surcharged
with the drizzling moisture which al
lows ws no haven from Its sogglnesB.
Deep puddles of the muddy aqua lie
upon all Bides so that the emerald hued
frogs croak from their dismal depths,
and other heliotrope or cerulean-tinted
reptiles of complex zoological nameB
emerge from their subterranean cav
erns In the soaked earth, disputing our
passage through their domains like
veritable mythological monsterB of an
tiquity. The torrents continue to descend (aB
this is written), and the sun is ob
scured by low, overhanging cloudB, ne
cessitating the donning of "slickers"
or "slIponB" and high artlcs or gum
boots. The co-eds even appear on the
campiiB in subdued colors, and, forget
ting their prevlouB promises to stroll
with ardent "fusserB," run shrieking
into the library to seek solace In study
Ono fair damsel had the audacity to
venture upon the campus with a liver
colored bathing cap, with astonishing
fringe on the edge, perched upon her
Bhapely head She is extremely fore
sighted, however, aB we are all dally
dreading the moment when we Bhall be
forced to don bathing buUb for protec
tion against the flood
Let the sun shine again in the old
familiar way lost we forget the appear
ance of hiB smiling old countenance,
and lest our grand old Institution go
silently floating out Into Salt creek'

Elected In Close Contest with KeitH
Two Honest Men Found to Col
lect Ballots.
When the laws are crooked they are
crooked, when they are honest they
are honest, as evidenced by the recent
junior law election. Two aspirants for
the presidential plum, Vernon Bascome
and Fred Keith, announced their inten
tion to run. Byrn Marcellus described
the manly qualities and excellent
standing of his candidate and placed
him in nomination after which fol
lowed a prolonged demonstration.
When the tumult had subsided W. C.
Schaper followed with a short but well
delivered nominating speech for his
candidate. This demonstration lasted
as long as the first, andvtho politicians
began to look around for a "dark
horse," but as none came galloping
along the nominations were closed by
motion of the candidates themselves
The motion was then made and car
ried that there Bhould be two really
honest men elected to take up the bal
lots, and G. S Brown and Guy Kiddoo
were unanimously elected to these po
sitions. Forty nine votes were cast,
Bascome receiving twenty-seven, and
therefore he will shape the policy of
that turbulent body for the coming
