OMAHA VS LINCOLN
ALL THE PLAYERS EXCEPT TWO
LEARNED GAME IN EUROPE.
OMAHA WINS, SMALL SCORE
Game Requires Dexterity More Than
Science Not a High School Game
as Many Imagine Two Forty
Five Minute Halves.
The much looked for soccer gamo
was played on Nebraska Field yester
day afternoon by teams representing
Omaha and Lincoln. The two teams
were of eleven men each. Most of
them were native Englishmen, two or
three-wereJDanes, and two Americans.
All but the Americans learned tho
sport in Europe. A fair-sized crowd
saw the sport. But now to tho game.
It is not half as bad as we imagined
It would be. It calls for vigorous work
on the part of every player. The goal
tender has the chance to do tho most
loafing, although ho once In a while
has to buzz around like a button on a
smokehouse door. The men who
carry the brunt of tho battle are the
centers and right and left backs.
They are mixed up In every play.
'Many have thoin?linirat-ltrwns-Tather--
of a lady's gamo. Just dismiss that.
There is plenty of contact and a two
to one bigger chance to get one's shins
skinned than In football. Thefo Is no
calling of signals. In many ways it
seems to lack science and to depend
upon the dexterity of tho players indi
vidually rather than collectively. The
game is divided Into two halves of
JtottyJlyjLjiiInutes eachLAt tho end
of halves the teams change goalsT
To our surprise, It Is no easy matter
to score. Even when the ball Is
worked down to the goal, the offensive
team might be robbed of a goal by a
foxy goal tender. Friday afternoon
the Omaha men outshone tho Lincoln
team, winning by the score of 4 to 2.
KOSMET PLAY STORY RE
PEATS MEXICAN SITUATION
By Strange Coincidence Ernie Graves
Writes Plot Which Nearly
One of tho peculiar coincidences
connected with the Kosmot show Is
tho fact that the plot,""vritten long
last summer, is almost Identical with
the present situation between Presi
dent Huerta and the constitutionalists
in Mexico. Tho question that now
arises is, Was this an accident, or is

If ho Is, it's time for hi mto quit his

In "El Presldente," tho native presi
dent of a South Sea island is up
against a real "greaser" revolution.
To make matters worse, ho Is out of
funds, or In other words, ho is broke.
About tho time he begins making lovo
to an American heiress who la taking
a Bummer vacation on his little island,
two young Americans appear on tho
scone, hot on her trail. They begin
plotting with the peons against tho
old ruler; ho gets wise, and the real
It's a poppy little plot and the music
is without doubt some of tho best
that the Kosmot Klub has ever pro
duced. Those who have heard Miss
Bartlett's muBlc are enthusiastic over
the results of such a prizoas tho dub
offers in stimulating real talent.

ENGINEERS MADE FIRST
Electrical Students Went to Mllford
Other Engineers Visited
Tho engineers of tho Electrical de
partment of tho University made a
separate trip of Inspection today. Tho
trip to Milford was made in automo
biles and the hydro-electric plant was
the seat of interest. This plant is
three miles ut of Mllford and sup
plies electricity to several of the
towns In the surrounding territory.
Charles Holtz, who graduated from
the University last year, was ono of
the principal characters connected
with tho Installation of this plant.
The engineers of tho other depart
ments spent yesterday morning in
specting the Havelock shops. This in
spection included tho machine shops,
the boiler house, tho blacksmith shop
and the power plant. Tho concrete
plant was a spot of interest, for large
piles, ranging from fifteen to seventy
feet, wjbtq made there. "The seventy
foot pile," says a professor, "Is of ex
traordinary longth and as largo as
they are made." Fence posts and sev
eral kinds of bridge floor slabs nro
also made In this plant.
In tho afternoon tho engineers vis
ited tho plant of tho Gas company,
tho plant of tho Electric Light com
pany and tho Burlington round house.
Tho Interlocking yards of the Burling
ton railroad were voty Interesting and
The trip to bo made today will in
clude the properties of tho Cushman
Motor Works, tho Beatrice Creamery
Ice plant, the Lincoln Traction Com
pany plant, and tho city water plant.'

Franklin Mann of the Northwestern
Mutual Life Company Spoke to
Students of Economics.
Mr. Franklin Mann of Omaha, gen
eral agent of tho Northwestern Mutual
Life Insurance Company, lectured to
tho Insurance class and other inter
ested, Friday morning. His general

company. He showed how the level
premium is found, how a reserve is
possible, and .why necessary, answer
ing many questions that wore raised
by members of the class. Following

tfOMM ' IN
PLENTY OF SEATS FOR
SENIOR PLAY MATINEE
8alo of 8eata-for -Night Attraction.
Good Half of the Seniors
"Tho most expensive class play over
presented in Lincoln," is what the
manager says of "The Fortune Hunt
er." "In addition to tho heavy royalty
and regular heavy expenses, wo aro
having two full, new sets of-scenery
made especially for this play. The
production wlir"compari5 favorably
with stock and road shows, but it
surely costs money."
Tho management finds consolation,
however, In tho large and ready seat
sale, and will no' doubt bo able to pay
all expenses of tho production. The
seat sale Is now open to the public
and while many good seats for the
evening performance are gone, there
are still a good many left for tho night
show and a large number for tho matl--nee
"Tho mnflneo will be as good in
Howell, coach of tho play, "and ono
ought not to feel that If they cannot
get good seats for the evening that
they will not faro as well in tho after
noon." Mr. Williams, who has been collect
ing the senior assessments, states
that only about one-half of the out
standing class notes have been pre
sented. "This Is the best opportunity
for realizing on those notes that tho
seniors will have," he says, "By ex
changing them for seats to the play
they will get full value for their notes,
either using the -seats or selling them
to some ono, else, while If they hold
them to tho end of the year, the indi
cations aro there will not bo enough
money in the class treasury to take
them all up."
