Football Battle on the Nebraska
Field to Close Spring
Training Season
Hartley and Preston Lead Teams
in First Spring Football
Game at Husker School
One of the biggest events of the
year will come off -this afternoon
when two elevens composed of the
gridstcrs of the spring training
snuad. meet on the gridiron in a reg
ular football game this afternoon at
3:00 sharp. 'The two teams, known
as Team No. One and team N'o. Two
have gone through a round of stren
uous practice this week in prepara
tion for the contest, and both teams
are confident of victory. Everyone
is invited to come out and see this
world's championship battle this
afternoon. t .
Rivalry between the turn of the
two teams has been very keen, and
the athletes have been indulging in
friendly bantering back and forth
throughout the week. The captains
of the two teams ar? Chick Hartley,
captain-fleet of the 1922 Husker
Eleven, Team Xo. One, and Pete
Preston, varsity quarterback. Team
No. Two, each declare that their re
spective elevens are world-beaters,
and that the other team hasn't the
chance of the proverbial snowball
in Hades.
The spirit of rivalry has even af
fected the coaches. Bill Day and
Farley Young, and so both of them
lias been coaching one of the two
f-ams. Bill Day is coach of Team
Xo. One and Farley Young is coach
of Team Xo. Two. Head Coach
Dawson is ringmast?r, and is charge
of the big contest.
Team Xo. One under the leader
ship of Chick Hartley seems to have
somewhat the better baekfield of the
two teams. This eleven was con
siderably strengthened yesterday
when Lewellen and Thomsen were
recruited. These additions gives
Team Xo. One five strong baek
field men In Hartley, Russell, It.
P'witz, Thomsen, and Lewellen. Ac
cording to the dope given out by the
members of this team, this baekfield
i a moneyback guarantee not to
make less than two touchdowns.
When the line is considered, Team
No. Two has much the better of the
argument. Wenke, Peterson, House,
Korby, and Huska form the muclous
of the line of Team Xo. Two. This
bunch of huskies have been working
well together this week, and are
planning to muss up the plays of
Team Xo. One with discouraging
regularity. Preston's eleven will also
have a strong baekfield with Preston,
H. Dewltz. Schoeppel, Hoy, and Har
ravs to choose from.
The game will be called at three
'dock this afternoon. Everybody
in the University is invited to see
tliis buttle royal. Xo admission will
be charged. Everyone out.
The need of the University for an
adequate auditorium on the campus
and a set of plans that will best pro
vide for this need, are the objects of
a contest open o tsudents, ex stu
dents, and alumni of Ohio State Uni
versity. The first part of the compe
tition will embody arguments for the
construction of a new auditorium and
ideas advanced as to the construc
tion of the building itself.
The second part of the competition
will be open to students in the de
partment of architecture, for the best
set of plans specifying the ''!' cf

Engineer Week Celebration Dates
Back to Exhibition Show In 1894
The present Engineer's Week is the
outgrowth of an engineering exhibit
of engineering apparatus and equip
ment at the quarter-centennial ctle
hration cf the University in 1S94. It
was but a denunstration that was
given to the public on the first occa
sion but it was such a success as to
be the nucleus from which the full
week of engineering activities lias
Since the first exhibit, the public
has been entertained annually by the
engineering students and shown the
technical material developers of the
nu n who guide the forces of nature.
Each succeeding year has seen an ad
dition to the interest displayed for
the exhibit.
Tlie Engineering Society, organized
in 1900, incorporated in its constitu
ticn that one of its purposes was to
provide, irom time to time, pleasing
and instructive entertainment for the
public. With this as a definite ob
ject, the annual affair became more
a reality.
Among the other activities of this
engineering society, were tlie smok
ts, dances, i;nd special convocations,
when noied engineers from different
parts of the country were secured to
address the men. These were to form
a part in the combined program for
a week of activities. The inaugura
te n of these into a week of events
under the familiar name of "Engin
eers' Week" was made in the spring
of 1912. This first "Engineers' Week'"
had in its program a rally or convoca
tion, a smoker and banquet, and the
di.-play night when all the laborator
ies were open to the public. Great
pi.ins were taken in preparing the
laboratories for public inspection, as
the entertainment thus afforded had
always been appealing to the people.
Tlie spirit cf the week of events
was carried on from 1912 to the wai
period, whent ir was temporarily dis
ccntinued. Again in 1918 19, a gen
eral chairman, Roy Gustafson, was
elected to carry on the work of di
recting and supervising the week.

man to actually take charge of the
responsibility of putting across the
week of activities was clearly seen
by the results secured. Last ytar, A.
V. Lindgren was appointed to carry
out the extenvise program. Several
new features were added and incor
porated in tlie week which had events
for each day of that week. Remark
able success was gained as shown by
the setting of records lor each- dis
play and event and the intense in
itrt st and spirit of co-cperation from
everyone in the college, students and
faculty alike.
The task of putting across a larger
and more elaborate program of ac
tivities for the week was this year
put under the direction, of Randolph
Gingrich, who was succeeded by
Lloyd P. Sliildneck. Again several
new features were addd of special
merit and noie, most important being
that of publicity.
The present '"Engineers' Week"'
program now contains a convocation,
with an engineer of national promi
nence giving an address, and a pres
entation of a framed portrait of some
successful engineer by the honorary
engineering fraternity, Sigma T;.u;
the open night at the engineering- lab
orah.iies, which is open to the public,
a full holiday in the College for an
athletic field day; a dance; and con
cluded by a banquet.
The interest shown by every en
gineer in the College and the support
of the faculty members, has assured
a larger and better week than ever
before. The results and suggestions
.:t the close of the week will be care
fully noted that the succeeding en
tertainments may profit and expand
from them. . .
Engineers' Week results in an ac
tual demonstration of the capabilities
of engineering both in theory and in
practice; the students in study and
in play, and coping with the forces
cf nature and in putting these forces
to work. Engineering is thus shown
to be progressive and worthy of a
ranking place in the list of professions.
Nebraska Girls to Compete in
Intersectional Contest with
Other Schools
The Interactional Telegraphic
Track Meet for women will be two
