DRAKE BULLDOGS TO COME
Seven Victories and One Defeat Tells
the Story Up to Date First
Conference Game Here
A review of tho present basketball
season presents quite an interesting
Htudy. Tho season was opened by
playing the ex-Uni's from Omaha, from
wiiom-we won by tho score of 44 to 22.
A week later, January 17, the Huskers
mot the Cotnerites and won by tho
decisive score of 56 to 11. The fol
lowing week came tho double-header
with We8leyan. In the first game,
January 23, Nebraska won by 29 to 20.
In this game ten of tho opponent's
pointB were scored by the free routo.
The game, although no farce, was so
easy that substitutions were frequent.
Tho next night tho unexpected hap
pened. The HuBkers wero beaten 18
to 24. The regular line-up was not
used. Tho NebraskanB played listless
ball, fumbling was frequent and
"Seven" Meyers was put out of com
mission by a wicked fall early in tho
game. Then camo tho week of mid
semesters. Practice was Btopped.
The gym became tho mecca of regis
tration. To many of the fans it looked pretty
tough for any success on the approach
ing northern trip. The only one who
seemed to be at ease was tho Coach.
The reBt seemed to do tho bunch good.
Rutherford, who had been out of tho
game with an injury since before the
Cotner game, reported.
Last Wednesday, Captain Haskell
with hie crew, under tho steering of
Assistant Coach Reed, Bet sail for
their flrBt encounters abroad. Thurs
day evening St. Joseph's College of
Uubuquo, Iowa, was beaten decisively,
the score being 48 to 11. After a long
ride to Minneapolis, the Huskors the
next night trimmed the Gophers on
their own mound to the StTehming
tune of 21 to sweet 16. The next
night, Saturday, February 7, on tho
same mound, against the same enemy,
tho Scarlet and Cream retrounced tho
Maroon and Gold by the small but suf
ficient score of 14 to 9 This last con
test, according to report, was a battle
royal. Night before last they were
again in Iowa. This time they lined
up against tho strongest semi-pro
team in the Hawkeye state, the Na
tional Guardsmen of Fort Dodge, a
team hitherto undefeated. Handi
capped by playing under A. A. U.
ruleB, they swept the Soldiers off their
feet and won 38 to 22.
A brief Biimmary of the general ro
auUs shows this: Nebraska to date
haB played eight games. Four at
homo and four abroad. Sho has won
seven and lost one. In tho four games
at home she played 160 minutes and
scored 147 pointB, while her opponents
were rolling up a total of 77.
On tho recent trip she has played
four games of forty minutes each. In
these 160 minutes she has scored 121
pointB, against 58 for nor opponents.
In (ho total games played thus far
Nebraska has played 320 minutes. In
those 320 mlnuteB sho has rung up
2C8 pointB, while the ex-Unl'B, Chris
tiana, MothodiatB, CatholicB, Gophers
and Soldiers wero collecting 135

NEW COMMANDANT NOT
A STRICT DISCIPLINARIAN
Lieutenant Bowman Takes Exceptions
to Report Scattered Among
Not so bad after all. The late an
nouncement which was made to tho
effect that Major Switzer, Nebraska's
new Commandant, was a Btrict dis
ciplinarian, has caused no little
amount of excitement and anxiety
among the cadets. Visions of mid
night attacks and strict rigid rules of
government have haunted the mind of
many a soldier lad during the past
According to the statement of Lieu
tenant Howman, the University cadets
need not expect anything inhuman
troin Major Switzer. On the other
hand, ho is commended as being a
man whom all will be glad to know.
In commenting on the subject, Lieu
tenant Bowman stated:
"I served as lieutenant under Major
Switzer and It proved to be tho most
profitable and pleasant service I ever
had. It was always a pleasure to
serve under Major Switzer, and I am
sure everyone will find, aB I did, that
ho is a man of admirable characteris
tics. I know ho will be successful aB
a commandant, both from the view
point of the faculty and of tho cadets."

SPEAKS AT CONVOCATION
Point Out Facta Concerning Liquor
Traffic Importance to College
Secretary H. G. McCain of the Inter
collegiate Prohibition Association
spoke before a very small audience at
Convocation yeBterday. Tho fact that
tho liquor question is one of the great
est problems beforo the peoplo today
was emphasized when tho speaker
pointed out that tho president of tho
United States openly shows his oppo
sition to tho traffic in liquor. Secre
tary of State Bryan has gone so far
as to refuse to allow Intoxicants to be
Borved to the dignitaries he is eu
tertoinlng. The fact that some poople
make light of the affair tends to ele
vate tho cause this great man is sup
porting. Tho Secretary of War has
ordered all saloons in the canal zone
closed and the Secretary of the Navy,
not to oo left out of the race, la work

Everybody is Interested In thlB great
movement and tho first great victory
"of tho temperance workers Is the pass
age of the Webb bill. The next stop,
they hope, will be national prohibition.
The liquor dealers realize that they
have a big fight on and some are f ran If
enough to admit that they will per
haps not be able to withstand the' at
tack. The liquor question is of vital im
portance to college men and women
because it deals with a subject which
1b live and on the minds and lips of
all. It is an economic problem, a
Boclal problem, and a problem that
concerns all sides of human affairs.
