Kntered nt the postolTloe nt Lincoln,
Nebraska, as second-class mall matter
under the act of Congress of March 3,
The Nebraskan publishes today a
Forum letter which asks the ques
tion, "Is the band Koing to Kansas?"
The writer expresses his firm belief
in the necessity of the band's pres
ence when Nebraska battles Kansas
for the championship of the Missouri
Valley and suggests that, if neces
sary, students be tagged to raise
money to defray expenses. The Ne
braskan is glad to say that such
measures are not needed. The band is
going to Kansas at the expense of
the athletic department as in former
years. It is annually entitled to at
least one football trip in payment for
its advertising services. The ques
tion up' for discussion prior to the
Michigan game was whether the band
should be given an additional trip.
The idea of not giving it the one ex
cursion has never been countenanced.
The band will be there with the root
ers to do its share in bringing Ne
braska her eighth Valley championship.
It would seem that sophomores,
with a year's advantage over the
freshmen in University environment,
would be the last to promote high
school play in connection with the
annual Olympics. And yet it was a
hundred sophomores bent on paint
ing hieroglyphics on the faces of
every freshman, they could find
that started a skirmish between the
underclasses which was only halted
when one sophomore was thrown un
der the wheels of an automobile,
miraculously escaping serious injury.
Had it not been for the deliberate
planning of those second-year men
the day of the Olympics would un
doubtedly have dawned without any
foolish child's play, for there was no
evident disposition on the part of the
freshmen to take into their own
hands the settling of the dispute for
which the Olympics were devised as
The Nebraskan does not wish to
deny that it cannot see the point of
view of the sophomores, nor to pre
tend that it is nut a very human
one. They were freshmen once, and
one memorable night the sophomores
of those days, in violation of Uni
versity rules and requests, started
out on a rampage to wipe up the
earth with them. And, since they
were mauled, why shouldn't they, in
turn, have their fun? This would
all be very well were it not for the
confounded theory that the world
must progress, do what we humans
will to turn it backward. If we were
all to live on the theory that we are
expected to conduct ourselves as did
those who have gone before us we
would still be in the paleolithic stage
of culture, eating raw meat, if we
based our actions on the justification
we found in the conduct of others
we might all be criminals who
knows? What the sophomores did
not realize is that there must some
day, somewhere, be a dropping of
loolish, dangerous, college-boy horse
play and tnat the sentiment is de
cidedly strong in favor of this being
the day. They were trying to perpe
trate a custom which, although it
might have been considered entirely
the proper thing twenty or thirty
years ago, is now looked upon as an
It is too late now to make this a
true year when Nebraska's history
book of traditions might be relieved
of an out-of-date appendix. But The
Nebraskan hopes it is not too late to
appeal to this year's freshmen those
who will be" sophomores next year
to take upon themselves the responsi
billty of cleaning out the petty play
that bubbles up during the last tew
hours before the Olympic contests.
The Band and Kansas
With Missouri out of the way the
football team will devote this week
getting into shape for the game with
Kansas, one of the two Missouri Val
ley conference teams Nebraska plays
this year. Nebraska was outscored
last week but not beaten by the Mich
igan Wolverines. But the team played
under a handicap in that it was se
riously hampered by injuries, which
weakened its offensive and defensive
power. The condition of the field
also gave Michigan an advantage as
Yost's men had been playing on a
field under similar conditions in pre
vious games this season. The third
handicap under which the team played
was the absence of the band, which
many believe was the biggest of the
There is one question upon the lips
of nearly every student on the campus
this week: "Is the band going to
Kansas or must the team fight the
battle at Lawrence alone as it did at
Ann Arbor?" Every student seems to
feel that if the band had accompanied
the" team to Michigan that the score
would have been different. The Kan
sas game is going to be a fight, and
Nebraska if she hopes to win, must
bo at her best for the winner of the
Kansas fray will undoubtedly be the
valley champions. Kansas will be cn
her own grounds and will have packed
stands to urge her on to victory, while
Nebraska will have only a small
handful of rooters in the stands to
cheer her on. Last Saturday I under
stand was the first time a Nebraska
football team has ever invaded an
other state to defend the honor and
prestige of the University, that the
band did not accompany it. If this
is true, that fact alone bears re
membering when we speak of last
1 think the band should go to Kan
sas at all costs. The team admitted
that the band was a great asset in
winning the Oregon game a year ago.
The failure to send the band to Michi
gan was due to the fact that certain
elements protested on the grounds
that Nebraska was giving t"u3 pro
ceeds of the football games this year
to the Red Cross and that therefore
it was unnecessary expense to send
the band along with the teun. I
think that perhaps some of those peo
ple may have changed their minds
since last week. I propose, that if
the business men don't think that the
sending of the band to Kansas is nec
essary that the students take it upon
their hands to send the team. We j
have been tagged for most every: hing
the last year. I believe we could j
stand to be tagged to toelp send the j
band to Kansas. We would receive ,
some help from the business houses j
if we went ahead with the project, j
Let the band give a dance and :he i
proceeds be. used to send them to j
Kansas. We can send them if we try.

Land to Kansas." j

I receiving a punt immediately after
the kick-off. Schcllenberg made the
score on a fourteen yard plunge
through tackle. Dobson made the
next score on a tackle buck of six
teen yards following repeated end
runs and line smashes. Nebrasna
made this score without losing 'he
ball after receiving it on the kick
off. Schellenberg scored the next two
touchdowns on tackle bucks of three
and four yards respectively. The lino
and backfield worked like a machine
in pushing the ball across the field
prior to each of these scores. The
half ended with the score of 39 to 0.
The Second Half
The second half opened w ith Schel
lenberg receiving the kick-off and re
turning it sixty yards to the fifteen
yard line. On the fourth play Schel
lenberg carried the ball over on a
tackle buck. The final score of the
day was made by McMahon on a
tackle buck after Cook had put the
ball in scoring distance with a thirty
yard return of a Missouri punt.
A real test of the strength of the
Cornhuskers came in the third period
when, with the help of two fifteen
yard penalties the Tigers got tho ball
on the Cornhusker 6 yard line with
four downs to push it over. They
made three yards on the first down
and at the end of the four downs
had not advanced the ball further.
An Incomplete pass on the fourth
down, that hit the ground back of
the goal line, gave the ball to the
Cornhuskers on their twenty-yard

head linesman, attracted attention be-j
cause of his exactly opposite kind oi i
interest in the game. Several times j
he was rudely awakened by the j
referee's whistle to find that he had
forgotten to move the chain. At such

The First Quarter
At the start of the game the two
teams appeared to be about evenly
matched. However, after both had
tried to advance the ball a couple
of times and had failed, Dobson in
tercepted a Missouri pass and, "the
stuff was off." Schellenberg went
around on the next play for fifty
two yards and McMahon fo.i wed
with a sprint of 15 yards to a touch
down. After that, until the end of
the half, the scores came fast.
On the next kick-off Missouri re
ceived, and after trying the line
twice punted. The kick was high
and carried far. Just as it was sail
ing over Cook's head he leapt up
and caught it and then started the
sensational run that ended in a touch
down. A better combination of dodg
ing and interference has seldom if
ever been found on a Nebraska team.
Cook dodged the first few men, the
next two or three were taken down
by his team-mates, and the runner
dodged the next one, the three Just
about to grab him then disappeared
from his path all at once, and so it
went until the squirming field gen
eral had crossed the line.
The next touchdown was earned by
hard work, on line plays and end
runs, without losing the ball, after

WHAT BROUGHT PRINCESS KA
LAMA INTO VAUDEVILLE AT
THE ORPHEUM THURSDAY.
The dainty exponent of the Ha
waiian dance was In New York when
the hula hula took the country by
'storm. Theatrical managers besieged
her with offers to dance In this or
that musical comedy in vaudeville and
in cabarets, but she refused. She was
a princess of royal blood and such a
thing would be impossible. The man
agers raised their offers and pleaded
hard and long, but all In vain until
One day tho princess was In a party
to go to Maxim's after the theatre. A
part of the entertainment was the
dancing of the hula hula by two sup
posedly Hawaiian maids. Kalama saw
the dance, and so poorly was it done
that rage consumed her at the thought
of anyone so maligning the beautiful
native dance. Right then and there
she decided to show America the real
Hawaiian hula hula and she has been
showing it ever since, and proving
nightly that the much danced hula can
be made a thing of beauty. Salt Lake
