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 Comes True. 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 " .ErneSt Graves -some-sorfe-of a scet2 If ho Is, it's time for hi mto quit his -job with Papa Dales, and jjo into tho fortuno-telllng business. 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 trouble begins. 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.

(CopyrtKht.) ENGINEERS MADE FIRST INSPECTIONS YESTERDAY Electrical Students Went to Mllford Other Engineers Visited Local Plants. 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 instructive. 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.'

" ' i COCOON FEUeRS soM8opyt tfOMM ' IN PLENTY OF SEATS FOR SENIOR PLAY MATINEE 8alo of 8eata-for -Night Attraction. Good Half of the Seniors Pay Assessment. "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 wcTy-respcct-aa-the-nightT-Bays Miss 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." AUDIENCE VERY WELL PLEA8ED WITH ENTIRE PROGRAM. SELECTIONS NOVEL--CL.ASSY Glee Club Makes Excellent Appear ance Receives Many Boqucts Specialties on Program Enjoyed immensely. Tho (iloo Club homo concort, glvon at the Temple last night, wns a com plete biiccchh. Every number was thoroughly onjoyed by tho audlonco and thoro- woro sovoral sighs of ro grot when the curtain doscondod on tho last act. Tho business mannger reports a fair financial success, al though tho-program -wna worthyof a, pnekod house. In a mastorly way tho club combined expression, grace of action, and artlstlo monner in each rendition. Tho audi ence ontored Into tho spirit of tho pro- ' gram with a will. Tho opening number, "Tho Joy of tho Huntor," by Carl von Wobor, com menced things well. Other numbers rendered by tho club woro "Baracollo," "Pilgrim's Chorus," "Nebraska An them," "U. of N. Song," and tho "No braska Marching Song." Tho heavy selections in tho first part or tho en tortalnment woro especially applauded by those prosont. As one member of tho audlonco ox-, pressed It, "Tho certainly can sing classical muBic." Tho success of tho concert also owes much to tho specialties of tho program. Theodore Lohmer, with his violin solos, was ono of tho hits of tho ovening; Whllo-ho-waa-playlng-somo of his soft, melodious strains a drop of the proverbial pin would have sounded as a cannon shot at Vera Cruz.

At this particular moment is when the weather man greatly enjoys sending ono of these little showers of rain which last for almost n second.' You understand, this is tho fault of neither yourself nor your partner, but Is some thing, which almost invariably happens and which is absolutely unavoidable.'
