STIEHM GIVES OUT DOPE ON
WESLEYAN AND COTNER GAMES
Has Score Made In Games Played so
Far This Season Which Prom
ise Lively Fights.
An inkling as to what will be the re
sults of tho forthcoming basketball
games with Cottier and Wesleyan was
obtained by Coach Stiehm Tuesday
night. On that evening the fives
representing the" two denominational
schools met in mortal combat, with
the result that the Methodists came
out ahead, 34 to 25.
Last year Nebraska beat Cotner, 29
to 18. This year the Christians have
a stronger rating, and are expected to
put up a harder fight. Judging from
Tuesday night's result, however,
Coach Stiehm is not anticipating as
much trouble from that quarter as
from Wesleyan. The Methodists have
been cleaning up everything this seas
on, and have all but one of last year's
players back In uniform.
Cotner is to appear here Saturday
evening, while Wesleyan comes on Fri
day and Saturday of next week.
According to present indications, at
least four, and possibly six, members
of this year's Omaha high school foot
ball team will attend the University of
Nebrsaka next year. Such was tho
word which Coach Mills of the Omaha
eleven sent to Coach Stiehm yester
day. The quartet consists of James Gar
diner, Ellsworth Moser, Charles Gar
dlpee and Harold Kelley. The other
two who may come are Leo Klein and
Ray Platz. All of the six have made
good In high school athletics, and two
or three of them will undoubtedly
prove a valuable aditions to the Corn
huskers in year to come.

versity Alumnus will be off the press
the last of the week and they will be

These plans will prove very Interest
ing to all those ho are Interested In
the affairs of the university. Charter
Day will be observed in a new and
novel manner and the alumni of the
school are expected to attend in force.
Editor Reed of the University Alum

neglect in the busy life outside the
confines of the campus.
