music or words are submitted sepa

to complete the songs. Contestants
having good melodies, but who are

to submit them, for the University

Middle-Term Examinations Postponed
Because of Conflict with
Teachers' Meeting.
Mid-semester examinations have
been postponed five days, according
to Dean C. C. Engberg. The reports
of scholarship standing will not be
due until November 13 instead of
November 8, as previously announced.
The reason for this postponement
is because of the fact that the state
teachers' convention will be held at
Omaha during the week beginning
November 1. Another reason why
this step has been taken is because
the secdnd scholarship report would
come only a short time after the
first quarterly report which was some
what delayed.

Train Load of Students Plan
'Watch Huskers Trim Feathers
of Kansas Bird.
A special train will carry the Corn
husker warriors and their enthusias
tic friends on their campaign in the
south when they go to bring home
the scalps of the Kansas tribe from
the November 13 battle, provided 125
round trip tickets are sold or guaran
teed. This will be good news to all the
football fans who are anxious to see
the Cornhuskers pick the tail feathers
out of that rare old bird, the Kansas
Jayhawk. All that remains for the
said fans to do in order to realize
their hopes is to get the gang to
gether and have them shoot the
ticket sales up to the 125 mark.
That's easy. Of course the neces
sary "wampum" is a thing that should
not be forgotten, but that will not
require a great amount as well be

Nebraska Coaches and Squad Hard
at Work Putting in Finish
ing Touches.
Coach Schulte put his gridiron
battlers through the last scrimmage
that will be held befor the eastern
trip last evening. Practically every
eligible man was given a chance to
show his ability against the husky
Freshmen. ICeen competition exists
between all the men for positions on
the team and every man is giving
everything he has in an endeavor to
be chosen to represent Nebraska in
her eastern games.
Coach Schulte has made no an
nouncement of who will gi east, but
it is probable that be will tonight.
Due to the many substitutions the
Varsity failed to make any extra
ordinary showing against the first-
year men last night but every man
was doing his best and Coach Schulte
feels confident that the Nebraska
"steam roller" will make itself famous
in the east The Huskers have great
ly improved their aerial game.
Men Not Yet Picked.
It is not known how many men the
Huskers will take with them. Coach
Schulte hopes to take twenty-six men
but this number may have to be re
duced to twenty-two.
The guarantees which the Ne
braska management is sure of receiv
ing are $2,500 for the Rutgers game
and $4,000 at Penn State. The cost
of transporting and caring for the
Cornhusker party may run as high
as $7,500.
The Nebraska authorities have con
tracts for the two games which give
the Nebraska management the privi
lege of taking its guarantee or a per
centage of the receipts. Unless the
percentage exceeds the guarantees,
the Cornhusker athletic department
will lose money on the trip, which
explains the necessity of rlacing a
limit on the number of players.
Rutgers and Penn State have two
of the strongest teams in the east
