Heury F. Schulte, who comes to Nebraska as head coach of
football and track for the Cornhuskers. Schulte's appointment as
successor to Dr. E. J. Stewart, resigned, was announced this summer
by university athletic authorities. Schulte is a big fellow, a football
man himself, with a square Jaw and lots of "pep." He knows' the
gridiron game from the standpoint of both coach and player, for he
was a standby in the Wolverine line when Coach Yost was turning
out the teams that made Michigan famous. For the past six years,
Schulte has been assistant and then head football and track coach
at the University of Missouri. He resigned at the Tiger school to
become head coach at Nebraska.
DAILY GRIND STARTS
) FOR STAFF WORKERS
The Dally Nebraskan staff offers
a good newsy paper to its readers
this semester. Many of the old staff
are at work this week, and every
member of the staff, old and new,
has had experience in newspaper
work. Some of them have been
working on city papers during the
summer months. The policy of the
Nebraskan this year will be to print
all of the news of the campus when
It is news. That will include all the
"dope" on athletics, things about
people known on the campus, social
events and student activities. Com
petent reporters will cover every de
partment of the university.
The price of the paper has been
raised to $1.25 a semester. Twenty
five girls are soliciting subscriptions
on the campus during the four days
of registration day. They will make
a thorough canvass of registering
students, and of members of the fac
ulty. The paper will be delivered to
subscribers every morning at nine
o'clock, at Station A In U Hall.
Subscrpitions may be obtained
from any of the following girls on the
campus this week:
Where the Greeks Reside
Many of the Greeks have changed
their place of abode this year. Some
of the sororities and fraternities have
moved into new homes and several
have been obliged to move on ac
count of the building on the ground
recently bought by the university.
The Silver Lynx who have had no
chapter house for the past two years,
are resuming their fraternity life this
year. The Acacias too, who were
practically forced to give up their
house during the war because of the
few men who were left in school,
have reclaimed their home this year.

Head Coach "Indian" Schvlte to
Prospects of Powerful Team to
Buck Unusually Tough
College sport is plunging, ripping,
and tearing back into its own this
fall. The athletic forces of 1917 and
1918,whlch were shattered by the war
have united, the organization of man
power and material is almost com
plete and ,the great offensive will
start In about two weeks.
Nebraska's situation is that ot
practically every University. The old
varsity and near varsity men are back
from France and the training camps
and 'rarin' for the moleskins, spikes,
and basketballs. All colleges ar? ex
periencing this influx of old letter
men and the Cornhuskers are getting
Basketball and track prospects
point only one way toward a victor
ious season. Old man Cornhusker
(1919) football schedule, however,
stands before Coach "Indian"
Schulte's gridiron warriors and says:
"You've got a powerful gang boys,
but I'm a hard customer to beat"
A glance at the list of battle before
the Scarlet and Cream grid vets teils
a big story. This is the schedule:
Oct. 4 Iowa at Iowa City.
Oct. 11 Minnesota at Minneapolis.
Oct. 18 Notre Dame at Lincoln
Oct. 25 Oklahoma at Omaha
Nov. 1 Ames at Lincoln
Nov. 8 Missouri at Columbia.
Nov. 15 Kansas at Lincoln.
Nov. 22- yracuse at Lincoln.
Not a weak spot on the list. E'.ery
week the Huskers will have a terrific
battle with teams as strong or
stronger than themselves. There are
no easy games where a second team
can play and let the varsity rest ior
the next big battle. Coach Schulte
will have to use the full strength of
the squad in every conflict. Serious
Injury to some of the stars which is
to be reasonably expected from such
a series of clashes will play havoc.
That Is the gloomy side of the
story. Remember the first part of old
man Cornhusker football schedule's
remark and take a look at what he
referred to. Eighteen letier men

to crack but confesses that Nebraska
prospects are pleasing. He has been

come from?" he said Wednesday.
"They certainly grow them big and
beefy up here in Nebraska." Esti

average about 185 pounds this year.
PROF. FLING RESUMES
DUTIES AT UNIVERSITY
Returns From Europe After
Completing Three Historys
of World War,
Came in Contact With Many
Prominent Characters at
Dr. Fred M. Fling, professor of
European history at the university,
returned this week to Lincoln after
assisting in the preparation of a his
tory of the world war. He returns
from Europe filled with interesting
reminiscences which grew out of con
tact with many of the prominent
characters at the peace conference in
Versailles. Without this atmosphere
the history of the war would be com
monplace and uninteresting, cays
Dr. Fling's work in Paris was the
direct and natural outgrowth of bis
work in Washington, which in turn
was the outcome of some ten years
work in other channels. When the
school at Leavenworth was started
as a graduate school for the army,
the history work was placed on a
source basis. In the organization of
this work, Dr. Fling played an Im
portant part, and he went to Leaven
worth from time to time to lecture
before the student soraiers. His text
on outlines of the historical method
was used In the Leavenworth school.
Plans History in Three Volumts.
Two civilians, historians by profes
sion, were Invited to Washington a
year ago last March to help organize
an historical branch of the general
staff . These men were Professor
ihnnn of Harvard and Dr. Fling of

was attained when Dr. Fling wem io
