one-sided contest staged on the Uni

Purpose of Clubs.
The purpose of these clubs la to
foster closer fellowship between stu
dents In the Freshman law class, to
further the study of technical legal
problems and to help students in
looking up references. Legal discus-
ilon and debate will be promoted.
Points of law will be briefed and the
students' efficiency in finding the
issue of law will be increased.
Readiness in argument at the coun
sel table is well worth the student's
time." said Prof. George N. Foster.
The membership In the clubs Is
entirely voluu ary. Faculty members
the Law School will act as ad
visers as well as members of the
upper law classes. The clubs will be
under the direction of the students
themselves without any It ..rvention
of the faculty.
W. A. A. Girls Do Big Business
Supplying Rooters With Apples
"Apples! Peanuts! Candy!" Co
ed sellers with loaded baskets on their
arms are at every football game on the
athletic field, varsity or high school,
vending their wares to an eager crowd
of buyers. 1600 apples were consumed
by the rooters at the Notre
game last Saturday. At other games
the average has been about 800.
When mouths are parched and voices
weakening the rooters call for apples.
But that is not all. Between 200 and
300 sucks of peanuts puss into the
hands of the hungry "husker" rooters
at each game and it is a fact that the
bleacherltes eat about 700 baro of
candy as well.
A mathematically Inclined person
might be able to fikure out just how
much money is taken in with every
thing ten cents each. Even the
others must realize that the sum clear
ed is not small. The question then
arises, wher does the money go? The
Woman's Athletic Associatioin holds
the concession. Originally tho W. A.
A. girls started to sell at the games to
earn money for the Red Cross. Dur
ing the war a part of the money went
to support French orphans. Last year

A number of additional reports were
not sent to the Dean until this week.
This has delayed the office force in

Former Husker Captain Playing With
Olympic Club of San Francisco
Wins Game From Stanford.
Many former Cornhusker stars ar
playing prominent roles on profes
sional and club football teams this
year. Paul Dobson, '20, is playing
fullback on the Olympic club team of
San Francisco. There are very few
Husker followers who have not heard
of Dobson at some time or other.
Dobson was a member of the Husker
squad in '16, '17, '18 and '19. "Dobie"
played Varsity football in '16 and '17
but was called to the navy in the
fall of '18 before the season had fairly
started. He was a member of the
famous Great Lakes team in '18 that
beat every thing in the country. He
returned to Nebraska in time for the
Notre Dame game on Thanksgiving
day and it was due to his punting
ability that kept the Catholics from
scoring on Nebraska. The final out
cbme of the game was 0 to 0.
In '19 Dobson was captain of the
team and one of the mainstays in the
backfield. He was one of Nebraska's
greatest punters and was a sure drop
kicker. It will be remembered that
Dobson made the drop kick in three
inches of snow last Thanksgiving day
that won the Syracuse game. on i-'iutl
Broadway musical comedy. The main
purpose of the capture was to cool
the resentment of his followers be
cause Diaz had deserted them.
Banks Depend on Farmers.

Director Luehring Tells Gathering of
One Hundred Enthusiasts About
Plans for New Courts.
A hundred enthusiastic tennis play
ers attended the meeting at the
Social Science Auditorium, Wednes
day evening, and voiced their ap
proval of Director F. W. Luehring's
plans to build twenty-five courts im
mediately and to rerive tennis as a
sport at the University. Seth Taylor,
'21, and member of the Innocents
Society, called the meeting to order.
Mr. Taylor urged all those who
wished to try out for the tennis team
to sign up. Almost the entire hun
dred signed.
Director Luehring related how he
had gone about to secure the promise
of the Chancellor to have these courts
constructed. When he came to Ne
braska to make a preliminary survey
and report to the Regents a plan for
the extension of the Athletic Depart
ment, he included a request for fifty
courts. In order to secure immediate
construction, he temporarily cut this
down to twenty-five. Chancellor
Avery, just before he left for his
eastern trip, gave instructions to go
ahead with the construction program.
Director Luehring confided a secret
to those present to the effect that
after the Chancellor had given these
orders there was a hesitancy on the
part of these in charge of the con
struction to delay the program be
cause they could not see what use
there would be for twenty-five courts
when the two present courts are not
used half of the time. Director
Luehring promptly replied that the
constructors of these courts would
not Interfere with the program of the
Athletic Department.
Tennis Game for Entire Year.
Tennis is a game that can be
played the entire school year and a
game that can be continued after
graduation and up to and perhaps
past the age of forty, said Director
Luehring. He urged proper care or
the coxrts which will be built with
a view towards permanency. They
will not be constructed of any popr.
flimsy material.
Four years ago, letters were given
in tennis. Four were given to those
playing in the double finals and two
to those playing in the single finals.
The intention is to give letters again
this year. Nebraska will also com
pete with other teams at the Missouri
Valley Tennis Tourney next June.
Director Luehring said that the
courts would be apportioned among
the men, women and faculty and that
a few courts would be kept in prime
condition for finals and exhibition
matches. He said that an effort
would be made to bring some tennis
"stars" to Nebraska for exhibition
Mr. Taylor was elected to appoint
an executive committee to work out
preliminary plans for the promotion
of tennis and perhaps a tennis club.
This committee will report at the
next meeting, which will be held in
about two weeks. The members of
this committee have not been an
Schulte Gives Nebraskans Another
Stiff Workout in Preparation
for Invading Coyotes.
Use Straight Football
Scarlet and Cream Mentor Hopes to
Win By Large Score To Use
Entire Squad if Possible.
The Huskers were given another
stiff workout last night In preparation
for the South Dakota Coyotes and are
in pretty fair shape for the game
tomorrow. Coach Schulte is figuring
on a hard battle and is drilling his
men accordingly.
The exact lineup for tomorrow's
game can not be determined as yet
but it will probably be the same as
that which faced Notre Dame with a
few exceptions. Coach Schulte has
been giving all the backfield men a
chance this week to work on the
Varsity and will probably use a num
ber of the second string men. A
great deal of time was spent in signal
practice last night and the Huskers
are showing a remarkable improve
ment in getting off their plays faster.
South Dakota is not confident of
winning the game to'morrow but plan
to give the Huskers a real battle and
put up a fight that will make Ne
braska set up and take notice. The
South Dakota delegation will arrive
in Lincoln early this evening and
will be quartered at the Lincoln Hotel.
They will probably take a light work
out Saturday morning on University
field or at the State Farm.
Schulte Wants Big Score.
Coach Schulte is in hopes that Ne
braska will win the game by a large
enough margin tomorrow so that he
may use more of the men on the
squad. The New York trip comes
next week and NfbrasKa ha3 two
hard games within "a week. TWs is
going to necessitate the using of
more men than usually take part in
two games. It is doubtful whether
Nebraska will open up tomorrow if
the Huskers can win by straight foot
ball. Coach Schulte has some "pet"
plays he is saving for the New York
trip and will not use them unless it
is absolutely necessary.
The only Husker who has been
laid up for some time on account of
injuries but will probably be seen in
tomorrow's contest Is Hubka. Last
night was Hubka's first on the field
this week and Coach Schulte did not
work him any whatever. Pucilek
and Dana will be in the line tomorrow
and help the other Nebraska forwards
in breaking up the Coyotes' forma
tions. There will be a large delega
tion of rooters with the South Dakota
squad and Nebraska is promised
some keen competition not only on
the football field but from the stands
also. The crowd will by no means
equal that of last Saturday but are

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 as might be of
value in promoting better work,
and higher scholarship. For
instance, a student starts 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 dii Friday
of this week.
Prompt co-operation is urgent
ly desired.
