PRICE FIVE CENTS NEBRASKA ONSLAUGHT CRUSHES DRAKE BULLDOGS "BEAR-DOPE" FAILS A3 HUSKERS PILEUP SCORES Stonewall Line and Brilliant Offense Displayed Against Weak lowans BY DWIGHT P. THOMAS When Drake's neavy team, clad in their bright blue jerseys, trotted onto the field last Saturday there was uot a person among the 1,500 spectators who thought that Nebraska would have an easy time winning from them. But when these same people saw the wonderful machine, which Stewart has developed, working like a great, well oiled piece of mechanism, they were not surprised that the final score was 63 to 0 with Nebraska on the big end. The showing of the Cornhuskers was brilliant from the time that Riddell ran around Drake's interference and tackled the runner for a big loss to the end when Dobson spoiled a beau- tiful forward pass for the visitors. No one man can be picked out for the star for the simple reason that every one was a star. The back field natural ly produced more thrills than the line, but anyone observing closely could see how that line was holding on every play like a brick wall, and how on defense they were breaking through and spoiling plays before they were fairly started. Cook Made a Hit Cook probably made the best im pression of all. The little squirmer made two brilliant runs of 43 and 52 yards and several smaller gains of from 5 to 20 yards. The most notice able thing about his work was that his runs were in no way flukes, they were all made from regular formations. Gardiner showed the greatest tendency to be consistent, for whenever a few yards were needed be was given the ball and would make them. Discrimination between the more or less brilliant ones of the rest of the back field is almost impossible. Rhodes and Dobson, the two new men, who were both playing their first game for the Scarlet 'and Cream, both did excel JUNIOR CLASS FIRST MEETING TUESDAY CLASS WILL ELECT MINOR OFFI CERS TUESDAY MORNING Committee Appointments Expected in a Few Days Interest Centers on Proms The flrBt class meetings for the elec tion of minor officers will be held Tuesday morning, when the Junior class, on call of the newly elected president, Lloyd Tully, will meet In Law 101, at 11 o'clock. Presidents of the other three classes are expected to calftneetings before the week is over. Each of the classes will elect a vice-presiden .. secretary, treasurer and sergeant-at-arms for the first semester. With the class organi zation completed, the different divis ions will be ready for the work of the semester. Committees 8oon Appointment of committees for the first semester will be announced soon. The presidents, with their campaign manrgers and deserving supporters, have bewi combing the different classes for committee material, and the re wards will be distributed In very short time. The- slate for the senior and Junior class committees is said to be prac tically complete right now. Interest in lent work. "Dusty," who played al most all the game was a sure gainer through the line and once got away for a fine long run. Dobson wasn't given very many chances to Bhow what he could do but he did a lot on his own hook in spoiling passes and stop ping runnerr. In addition he made a twenty yard run for a touchdown on one of the most clever trick plays of the day. Riddell and Otoupalik Riddell and Otoupalik, end-half backs, played brilliantly in both post tions and fulfilled the predictions of many fans that they would be two of the most valuable men on the team this year. Doyle at fullback displayed a surprising amount of nerve in div ing head first over the line, time after time, reminding the spectators of the style of game put up by Julian the great Michigan Aggie fullback Proc tor and Caley showed the same brand of stellar work as the others, during the short time they were in. In the line the work of Corey and Moser stood out most prominently, although Dale, Kositzky, Wilder, NOr- ris and Cameron played well. Those spectators who expected to see a weak offense were doomed to a disappointment. For either Drake has a much weaker team or Nebraska has a much stronger team than last year. It is probable that the latter is the case as Drake was touted as be ing much stronger than, last year. While anyone who looks closely can see that with all the veterans which she has and with new men who are showing up better all the time, Ne braska must of necessity have a strong team. At any rate the victory was achieved easily and without exposing many of the coach's pet plays to the eager eyes of the scouts in the stands. There were plenty of said scouts occupying seats on the field.- There were four, very conspicuously seated in the press box, all from the Kansas Aggies. Among them was "Germany" Schultz, assistant coach of the Aggies.- But they missed their guess if they thought that they learned a whole lot,' for (Continued on page 2) WILL HOLD these two will be centered largely on the chairmen of the prom committees as only the upper classes can give for mal parties. Masters 01 ceremonies for the two dances will also be chosen. Committee places usually carry with them a complimentary ticket to the dance, if much work Is done, so many places are considered good. Hod committees will be appointed in all classes. These informal parties are alwavs popular, and a good deal of rivalry usually exists among the com mittee chairmen to produce tne cest party. Interest In Olympics In the freshmen and sophomore classes, the principal interest will cen ter on the personnel of the Olympics committees. The annual battle De tween the two classes will be staged at the state farm on the morning of November IS, the day of the Kansas game, the annual home-coming game this year. Hundreds of alumni are expected from out of town for the day and it is anticipated that most of them will go to the farm to see the Olympics. The freshmen will face a class that won the battle last year, ending the affray by throwing most of the sophomores intD the -Salt creek. The first year men are not dismayed, however, and think that with good leadership their numbers are bound to carry the day. UNION SOCIETY CELEBRATES ANNIVERSARY The Union Society entertained Fri day night at the Temple with a novel program which was in charge of Josefa Seely and Marie Gale. A magazine, with Its cover, stories and advertise ments was represented.

Seventy-two members were present and refreshments were served at the conclusion of the pro gram. All URGENT CALL FORTRAGK MEN Captain Overman Wants 100 Men in Daily Workouts Chance For Freshmen Captain Overman of the track team, and Guy Reed, coach, have issued an other call for track men, declaring that the number now in training is entirely too small for a university with the large enrollment of Nebraska. Track work at Nebraska has not been up to standard in the past few years simply because of lack of ma terial. There is a wealth of splendid material in school, the coaches say, but the men do not turn out because they think their chances of landing are not very good. Experience and coaching would make many of them stars on the cinder path and in the field events. Need 100 Men One hundred men ought to turn out In daily workouts but a very small part of this number has been out this fall. An appeal is being made for the freshmen to turn out as the teams of the future will come from the freshmen sauad of this year. The freshmen wlil have a chance to participate in four meets this year, two University meets, and one each with Doane and Wes leyan. Numerals will be given to freshmen who make eight points dur ing the year and medals to the point makers in the two University meets. All upper classmen who have been in school one year or more are eligible for the team. More upper classmen are needed now for they are the ma terial from which the team will have to be built this year.

STEVENS Oil MEDICAJJTIQUETTE Addresses 100 P.e-Medics at First Smoker of Season Dr. J. F. Stevens spoke to 100 Pre Medics at their first smoker of the season at the Alpha Tau Omega house last Thursday evening on the subject of "The Etiquette of Medicine." That a man, to be a successful prac titioner of medicine must know human ity, was the keynote of the speech. To reach the full measure of a doctor's heritage to minster healing balms to the suffering and comfort to those distressed, the true physician must practice humanity, not commercialism. The etiquette of a doctor, he said, was the etiquette of a gentleman whose field of usefulness was widened by his power to relieve suffering. Dr. Stevens advocated reading outside of the profession, especially poetry and biography, as one of the bost aids in gaining and understanding of human ity. Plans were laid by the Pre-Medics for their annual dance and trip to Om aha, and for visits to the Orthopedic hospital and state hospital for the insane.
