Before an overly large crowd that
more than filled the three floors of
the Oliver, tho amateur theatricals of
, University Night .again showed them;
solves a bigger drawing card than
ver. The various acts were carried
out without &ny serious cases of for-
' Betfulnees, tipping scenery, or stage
fright, and each proved well worth
the undertaking.
After the band, Glee club and Man
dolin club had rendered selections
that drew totth many rounds of ap
plause, the Literary societies gave a
moat realistic representation of the
initiation of our country cousins into
the ways of the college lads and
lassies. The Agricultural club gave
a picture of the Industry and erudition
that characterizes tho inside of a
country store and took a good shot
at the college lecturing as the student
often sees it, when they presented the
farmers with a professional talk that
not only "was supposed to put the farm
ers to sleep but actually was given in
such a very realistic manner as to
work upon the patience of the audi
ence, as it quite frequently does upon
those who are forced to listen to such
neveral times a day instead of once
a year.
The Foresters gave a good idea of
how practical the language sounds, and
the practical workings of professional
learning look to tholalty by show
ing the mental and linguistic efforts
of Beveral colIeeDJcotesaors and, the
manual efforts of a gang of union
men required in raising a pole from
n horizontal to a perpendicular posi
tion. In connection with the" Forester's
act, Mr. Rldgeley Chaplin drew forth
the appreciation of the audience in an
impersonation of Chancellor Avery
that in faolal expression, poise and in
flection likeness was realistic to per
fection. The only exception to an al
most absolute likeness was found In
the fact that perhaps the logic of his
speech was not quite equal to that
of the chancellor, even though on a
subject that may have made it sound
more so to some people.
The Military .department gave a ty
pical and comical picture of camp life.
Perhaps tho act deserving the most
favorable mention was that of tho Inter-fraternity
songsters in which was
showu more ability and less natural
amateur awkwardness than in any
other. Miss Ruth Malone's singing
was the most finished work of the
evening and was of course far above
the accompanying amateur work. The
work -of Mr.rAmmorman in the rolo-of
the Yldisha comedian was well worthy

Playing to a crowd smaller than the usual, the Cornhusker quintet last
night took from tho Jayhawker five the first of the series of games for tho
championship of the Missouri Valley. Tho game was the fastest which has
been played hero this season, and there were moments when tho little
band of rooters got thrills enough to cause near heart failure. Tho tenement-dwellers
excelled the Southerners in passing and goal-shooting, while
the Kansas men were able to keep their roughness within tho referees' rul
ings. For the Huskers, Carrier and Haskell wore the stars, and Sproul for
the visitors was tho stellar artist Seymour, the referee, was Inclined to
tavor a strict interpretation of tho rules, and refused to let tho Huskers
stray from the straight and narrow path, all of which made the crowd thirst
for blood and gore.
Stlehm's men appeared on the floor promptly at 8 o'clock and were
tollowed In a few minutes by tho Southerners. While they warmed up,
the Immense crowd began to fill the Beats by ones and twoB. Referee Sey
mour blow his whistle at 8:30 and the game started with a whirl which
carried the ball back and forth to tho Kansas goal. They failed to locato
the basket from the start, missing on two good chances. The referee called
a foul on Haskell which operation he found so easy that he continued Bald
btunt throughout the game. Kansas miBsed a goal as they did a moment
Inter on a free throw caused by a foul on Underwood.

of Hawkins and Weaver which netted each side one point, Carrier threw
the first field goal. The CornhUBkers fell Into their stride and showed the
visitors some wonderful passing and ended by Underwood caging the ball.
This was followed almost immediately by one from Sproul. Haskell made
a free throw and followed it with a field goal. A series of long quick and
accurate passes on both sides Interspersed with several trials for the baskets
was ended by Underwood who made a clean throw from fleld. Stryker here
gave the fans an exhibition of pretty work but his shots were hoodooed, the
ball even running around the rim several times before falling out. The
KaoBans netted a point on a foul by Haskell and brought the score up to 10-4
lb favor of Nebraska. The remainder of the half was played at top speed
and ended with the score of 18-11 In tho Huskers favor. Hyde took the
place of Hawklas just before time was called.
After a ten minute rest the teams again faced eaoh other with no further
change in the lineup. The first event was a foul on Nebraska. Hyde and
his gentle style of playing seemed to worry the Jayhawkers considerably
just about this time. The two teams alternated in throwing goals and caus
