Professor Condra Speaks
For Food Conservation
Dr. E. G., Condra of the geography
and conservation department ad
dressed a meeting at Omaha Thursday
evening in the interest of food con
servation. Dr. Condra has been asked
by Hon. Gurdon W. Wattles, state
food administrator, to address a num
ber of such meetings that will be
held shortly over the state.
The principal object of the meet
ing Thursday was to make plans for
a registration of the food consumers
of the state. An effort will be made
to get every consumer in Nebraska
to register for a movement to follow
out the suggestions of the national
food dictator, and especially to adopt
a wheatless day and a meatless day,
and to prevent waste. Reports were
read at the meeting which showed
what had already been done along this
line by the counties of the state. By
means of the registration, Mr. Wattles
hopes to make this support universal.
UNIVERSITY WOMEN ARE
NEGLECTING RED CROSS
Local Organization Unable to
Satisfy Urgent Demands for
Bandages and Kits
Although over 400 University girls
registered for the Red Cross work
which is being done in Nebraska hall
Tuesday, Thursday and Friday after
noons, under the direction of Mrs.
Samuel Waugh of the city Red Cross,
only some 200 girls are reporting regu
larly for work. There is a lot of work
that should be done at once and more
girls are needed badly.
Last week muslin slings and com
press bandages were made. These
will be shipped direct to France be
fore the holidays. Mrs. A. H. Arm
strong of Lincoln, an expert packer,
will help with the packing. The boxes
will .be lined with waterproof paper
and bound with steel binding. They
will be shipped to Major G. M. P.
Murphy, head of the American Red
Cross clearing house at Paris.
Another sewing machine has been
secured to make the comfort kita
which will be sent wherever the Girls'
club wishes to send .hem, probably to
"Isn't the work fascinating?" a girl
said as she worked Friday afternoon.
"I didn't intend to stay this long, but
here I am. I think it is heaps of fun."
As the girls work women of the
city organization, working with the
yirls, tell interesting phases of the
war. Mrs. Armstrong told of a trench
paper which had been sent to her from
Paris by Mrs. Austin, Major Murphy's
assistant. The paper is written in
French. It was printed in the
Mrs. Armstrong received . a note
from Mrs. Austin, congratulating the
Lincoln association on the work it
has done. It is only rarely that a
city association is allowed to ship di
rectly to France, but after inspecting
the work the Lincoln association did
for two years, the national Red Cross
surgical department gave them per
mission. Mrs. Waugh and Mrs. Armstrong
are confident that when University
girls realize how important this work
is that they will turn out in larger
numbers. If every University girl
would spend only one hour a week, an
immense amount could be accom
plished. Mrs. Armstrong said Friday,
The University girls should make
from 3,000 to 4,000 compress bandages

must avoid are hate, inmorality and
coarseness. He then told a story of
an 6fllcer who reported that "a mine
had exploded and had buried a lot of
men. Some were killed, others we
dug up and used over again." He told
Lof starving prisoners who left the
table without eating because they
simply could not eat the same dread
ful food which was offered to them
day after day. "I gave my life to my
country but it only took my feet,"
once a wounded American said. In
speaking of the sum of money which
was to be ralsedMr. Triker said,
"When I talk about heroes I don't
ask for pennies."

in Nebraska territory most of the
Michigan showed strength in all de
partments of the game, including sev
eral trick plays which battered Ne
braska. Weston, Weiman and Froemke
starred for Michigan, while Dobson
and McMahon played a good game for
Nebraska. The Nebraska stone wall
weaken by the loss of Riddell and the
crippled condition of other men, was
pierced frequently for good gains.
The breaks In the game were with
Michigan throughout. The first touch
down came when Dobson fumbled
on Michigan's seventeen-yard line.
Froemke picked up the ball, and with
excellent interference, raced straight
down the field for a touchdown.
The second score came after Nebras
ka had suffered penalties, which placed
the ball well within her own territory.
Six more points came from place kicks
by Weiman in the third and fourth
Field Was Muddy
Nebraska and Michigan lined up for
their first game since 1911 on a sloppy
field. It had drizzled steady all day.
The slow field furnished an advantage
to the heavy Michigan eleven.
The crowd filled the stands slowly.
All the seating space was exposed to
the steady downpour. The Michigan
team appeared at 2:25 o'clock. The
Nebraska team came on the field at
