Besides being a competent Y. W. C. A. worker and one of the thirty captains on the Committee of Two Hundred, she has done much for individual girls in school. only the co-ed herself can realize how well-earned is that compulsory credit. To her it seems a waste of time and she thinks of the unprepared French lesson. Her arms become limp,, a fly tickles her nose, but she dares not knock it away lest she lose her credit for the year, and still the instructor snaps forth the hated directions. She thinks with envy of her roommate w"no, "Lucky one," secured a reprieve. "How did she get it," she murmurs and at the same time almost hates herself for being so healthy. To her gym is the cause of all evils. No wonder she is late to her next class. And of course It Is the alleged cause of all colds. But suddenly she forgets her un pleasant thoughts, her pout becomes a smile, she hears the ever welcome words, "Class dismissed."

Nebraska's Cornhuskere proved their ability as football ar'.itts Satur day by taking the South Dakota ag gregatlon into camp to the tune of 20 to 0. This makes the third shutout of the season for Nebraska. The advantage in weight that Ne braska had over the Coyotes was one of the main factors in the victory. Coach Schulte's warriors had all the "breaks" in the game as fv as luck was concerned. The Coyotots had lots of fight but could not withstand the rushes of the heavy Nebraska for wards and backs. The first half of the game; was not much better than the average high school team puts on and was very disappointing to the followers of the Huskers. Most of the flvei half was taken up in a punting duel between iue two teams with honors about even. Nebraska seemed to be in a trance and unable to come out of it. The Huskers failed to niake first downs many times in this period of the game but woke up later on. Neither team seemed capable of hang ing onto the ball and fumbles were frequent on both sides. South Dakota kicked off to Ne braska the second half and Nebraska began to display some real football ability. The Huskers were able to make first downs without much diffi culty at this stage of the game.
