some topic pertaining to the peace
conference at an open meeting of the
Socio-Economics Club in Social
Science 105 at 7 o'clock Thursday
This will be the first open meeting
cf the Socio-Economics Club this year.
The meetings are informal and group
discussion follows the speech. It was
for the purpose of giving students an
opportunity to meet and discuss cur
rent problems that the club was
organized. The speaker of the eve
ning leads the discussion. All stu
dents are invited to attend.
Professor Noble's work at the peace
conference was to read French news-'
papers and prepare a daily summary
and estimate of what the French

State. Farm Aggies
Get Stiff Workout
The State Farm Aggies encountered
some stiff practice last Wednesday
when Coach Proctor lined them up
against the second team. The first
team pushed the substitutes down the
field for several touchdowns and held
them for downs when put on the de
fensive. The Aggies anticipate a dif
ficult game next Friday when they
meet Universtiy Place at University

aggregation this year. They succeed

score of 15-16 the very first game or
The Aggies have a heavy line but
whether or not they will be able to
stop the fleet-footed University Place
backfield is problematical. Their
main difficulty Is that only three men
of last year's team are in the lineup
and the rest are inexperienced some
of them playing their very first game
of football next Friday. Coach Proc
tor announced Wednesday that no
definite team has been picked.
R. O. T. C. Says "More

band. The embryo soldiers looked as
though they were taking part in a
Although the surface of the drill
field was not quite smooth and the
soldiers had to kick a "clod" of dirt
out of the way here, and a stone,
there, the music kept their spirits
high. "The drill hour went three
times as fast with music," were the
enthusiastic words of a Sophomore
"Music with our drills is what we
want now" he continued. "Tues
day's treat spoiled us, and I'm afraid
our feet will refuse to move now
without the familiar strains of "Na
tional Emblem" to urge us on. It
seems more military with the music
and there are not many men at Ne
braska who can listen to an American
i arch without at least marking time.
What we want now Is 'more music
with our drills.'"

Former Husker Star Training Agri
culture College Team Scouts
University graduates have a habit
of breaking into print all over the
country, especially the Cornhuskers
who were famous in athletic circles in
the University. Dick Rutherford,
former Husker all around athlete is
new in the limelight as the coach of
the Oregon Agricultural College.
Rutherford was a former football star
at the University of Nebraska in '13,
'14 and '15. He was on the famous
team that walloped Minnesota, 7 to 0
and was the running mate of the
famous Guy Chamberlain. Some au
thorities give Rutherford the distinc
tion of being Nebraska's greatest
all around athlete. After Rutherford
had graduated from Nebraska he was
employed as assistant coach at Wash
ington University, St. Louis. He re
mained there for a few years, then
went out west, where he is now
The following article was received
at the Daily Nebraskan office a few
days ago from one of the Seattle
"When Whitman College and the
University of Washington football
teams played Saturday, a keen-eyed
young man from Corvallis, Ore.,

Washington players. He was Head
Coach R. B. Rutherford of the Oregon
Aggies, who came up to find out what
kind of a game the University played,
so that he might have some advance
knowledge on how to conduct his
offensive and defensive when the
Aggies play here October 23, which
will be the first big game on the
O. A. C. schedule.
"Rutherford was the great halfback
of the University of Nebraska's
famous team of 1913, which earned a
right to share with Chicago, Notre
Dame and the Michigan Aggies the
disputed championship of the Middle
Western states. Its important vie
tory that year was a 7 to 0 defeat
of Minnesota, on which Loren Solon,
now assistant coach of the University
of Washington team, played end. Ne-

English Women Stop
Betting on Love, But
Wager All on Horses
LONDON. English women have
quit gambling on love, to put their
hopes on the gee-gees. Astouding
numbers of women have placed large
bets with commission agents during
the 1920 racing season and these bets
come from extraordinary sources. A
well-known bookmaker told the United
Press that most of the large bets
placed with him by women have been
from those residing in quiet country
"I think they are Beeking some kind
of excitement to lessen the tedium or
country life," he said. "Many of them
have taken It op only recently. They
don't profess to know anything about
horses form, pedigree, jockeys and
all those things which the male
gambler studies assidioujly mean

TRY H PUB
Huskers Driven at Break-Neck Speed
for Coming Battle With
Pucelik Works Out
Varsity Runs Signals and Scrimmage
With Freshmen Squad Schissler
Laid Up in Bed.
Nebraska's Cornhuskers were put
through another stiff workout last
night in preparation for the South
Dakota Coyotes Saturday. Coach
Schulte is driving the men at race
horse speed every night in order that
as many new plays and formations as
possible may be mastered before the
trip east. Every one is looking for
ward to the game with Rutgers and
Penn State in the next few weeks
an I is not giving as much thought to
the South Dakota game as might be.
That the Coyotes are out after Ne
braska's scalp is evident from the re
ports that are being received here.
Coach Schulte is of the opinion that
Saturday's game will be one of the
hardest fought battles on far Husker
calendar this season.
Pucelik reported for work last night
and is fast rounding into his old time
form. Hubka has not as yet donned
his suit but is expected out soon.
The entire Husker squad is in pretty
fair shape except for a few minor
bruises with the exceptions of these
two men. Last Saturday's defeat at
the hands of Notre Dame has injected
a new fighting spirit into the men
and Husker followers are sure to re
ceive a demonstration of the old time
fighting spirit in Saturday's game.
This will be the first game these two
teams have participated in for six
y ears. The last battle was a tie and
Coach Schulte is bent on having his
proteges give the Coyotes one of the
worst beatings ever administered a
visiting team at Nebraska. Coach
Schulte is anxious to have the fol
lowers of the Huskers see for them
se'ves what Nebraska can Co against
a team that would be a match for
ti;h-?r Rutgers or Penn State.
Scrimmage With Freshmen,
'lhe practice last evening was de
voted entirely to running signals and
scrimmaging against the Freshman
squad. The Freshmen are worthy
foes of the Varsity and give the older
men a real battle every night. Assist
ant Coach Schissler, who has been
directing the Frosh all season, is con
fined to his bed and reported quite
sick. Since there has been secret
practice every night this week just
what kind of an attack Coach Schulte
is going to have his warriors launch
against the Coyotes cannot be deter
mined. VERMILLION, S. D., Oct. 20

the presidents of those clubs
and societies which have been
organized since September,
1919, leave a list of their offi
cers with the secretary of the

To: All Officers of Instruction:
At the senate meeting last
Saturday it was decided to
make quarterly reports on de
linquencies of the Freshmen
and Sophomores as well as such
other reports s might be of
value in promoting better work,
and higher- scholarship. For
Instance, a student start out
as an 80 student, but has lost
his grip and though still pass
ing, Is now down to say 70.
These reports should not be
considered as doing away with
the weekly use of the "Re
marks" and "Standing" columns.
The first report Is due Friday
of this week.
Prompt co-operation is urgent
