A Challenge to the Co-Eds
A girls' rooting section has been reserved on the south side of the
field, next m the men's rooting section, but separate from it.
This is to insure the organized rooting which is absolutely neces
sary to the team. The change in the girls' section from the north side
of the field to the south side is an experiment. It is a challenge to the
girls. Will (hey respond, and show what Nebraska spirit they have?
Half of the responsibility is theirs.

FOOTBALL RALLY IN
MEMORIAL HALL TODAY
SPEAKERS COOK AND RIDDELL
WITHDRAW FROM PROGRAM
Nebraska Rooting Needs Perking Up
Rally for Olympics Battle,
The announcement of yesterday that
John Cook and Ted Riddell would
speak at the football rally today has
had to be withdrawn. Cook and Rid
dell were willing, but Coach Stewart
thought it would be better if their
minds were employed on the strategy
of the game than on preparing a
speech, so he suggested that their talks
be not given.
In spite of this withdrawal, the rally
will go on just the same, and it will
be a real rally. Any old Nebraskan
who likes to seize every possible oc
casion for lung exercise, and his name
is legion, will come out to practice that
old yell for Kansas.

The Band Again
The University band will make its
first appearance at a regularly
scheduled rally since the night the
team left for the Oregon game. It has
not forgotten any of the old time
melodies, however, and the chorus of
the Cornhusker will be s feature of
the mass meeting today.
The rally, it must not be forgotten,
will be for the Olympics battle be
tween the two lower classes Saturday
morning, as well as for the football
game, and there will be pep engen
dered for this fray.
The success of the freshmen In
stealing the sophomore president
yesterday necessarily cuts Carl Harns
berger from the list of speakers this
morning. Riley, the freshman presi
dent, will appear on the stage if he
has the nerve to face the wild-eyed
sophomore rooting section.
The rally will commence promptly
at 11 o'clock. It will last just as
short a time as it is necessary to
rouse the students to the proper pitch
of excitement, but it will be pep from
the word go.
