More Than Ever Before at Open
ing Football Rally in Arm
ory Friday
Two thousand students, the largest
number ever present at any opening
football rally, yelled themselves
hoarse in the Armory Friday night.
Captain "Chick" Hartley, and Coach
Fred Dawson were the main 'speak
ers. Fred Richards, head cheer
leader for this year, along with Mun
roo Gleason, his first assistant, led
the students in singing and cheer
ing. Chauncey Nelson, president of
Innocents, presided
After some snappy yells, the Uni
versity band opened up with the
"Cornhusker" and everybody stood up
and sang. Hartley, the first speaker
on the program, said that too much
confidence was the greatest danger
at this time. He said that the team
would do the best it could, and even
though it should be unable to win,
the students should back them in
everv wav possible. The only way

men who are wearing sweaters or
letters from high school should take
them off. The only letter we want
worn on this campus is the "N", and
we're mighty proud and envious of
those who wear that. So all you
freshmen, or any of you who are
'wearing these sweaters, don't wear
i . ' .. ..
them on tne campus. -
Nelson advised the freshmen to don j
their green gear or take the conse
quences. A special section for
freshmen was reserved at the game
Saturday and their green caps set
them off.
After yells, songs ana more yells,
Coalh Dawson took the floor. His
remarks were much on the same
tenor as those made by Nelsop and
Hartley. He said: 'This team is
your team and my team. It is not
a naid bunch of professionals. It is
taken from the warp and woof of the
men of the University. You should
support it as such, and support it
under all conditions, win or lose.
The men get out and grind them
selves, through the gruelling strains
of the practice not for themselves,
but for the school and you. Show
the proper spirit, and show these
men you appreciate them by cheer
ing. "It has tesn necessary for me to
have the practice of the men private,
but on certain days I shall allow the
student body to visit the field and
see the men at work. Don't think
that what you see is an exhibition;
it is what the men go through every
dav. There were quite a few out the
last time I led the field be open, but
t want vou to show your spirit here
too by turning out in larger numbers.
And don't Just sit there and watch
ihem: it is your duty, if nothing else.
to cheer those men if it only shows
vour respect for them. When a good
nlav is made, cheer give the fellows
encouragement. And if you keep on
turning out in such large numbers as
we have here tonight along with the
"each man bring a man" idea you
will be doing fine."
All the speeches were heard with
interest and all were loudly applaud
ed. About one-third of those In the
audience were girls and they sat in
a front section all by themselves.
The balconies and seats were all
filled and nearly half of those pres
ent were standing. The scaffolding
which is still up for construction
work was covered with students who
desired to see it all. Two or three
boys slipped in and caused more or
less humor during the evening.
The cheers were given with lot
of viw and pep and made the old
building echo and re-echo. The cur
rent remark was: "If only we can
get as good cheering at the game, all
-ni hn wen." On the last cheer, the
loudest of all. Coach Dawson nodded
his head with approval and the as
sembly broke up.
Night Class Roll

The iiuiuber of etudruU en
rolled in the night classes of the
Arts and Science college Is not yet

be made at this time places the en

hundred and fifty.
Mr. Reed of the extension depart
ment wishes it made clear that these
night classes are not exclusively bus!
administration. Courses la eco
,es. administration. Courses in e
nomics, history and other subjects are

Campaigns of all Descriptions to
be in Hands of Student
Complete regulation of all campus
drives in the future be in the hands
of the student council according to
the decision of the council made at
the regular meeting in Faculty hall
Thursday evening. Considerable com
ment has been made concerning the
many demands for money from the
student body and this action taken by
the student council will be a precau
tion against unnecessary drives. The
action has been approved by the
deans. It will be necessary hereafter
for any organization before it Is al
lowed to stage any kind of a cam
paign on the campus to appear be
fore the student council at one of
its regular meetings to secure author
ity for its campaign. The council
meets at 5 o'clock In Faculty hall
every Thursday. This ruling will be
strictly enforced and until a drive is
authorized and the council has an
nounced its approval no student
should subscribe to a drive.
A committee of the council will
meet with the convocation committee
in the near future to discuss the
possibilities of compulsory attend
ance at convocation for the whole
school. The council voted that it
would offer its services as a body to
do any work necessaay to make gen
eral convocations possible. The gen
eral convocation would be of the
greatest aid in promoting the school
spirit, is the opinion of the council.
General convocation Is an institu
tion in most colleges and in taking
this action the members of the coun
cil feel that the compulsory feature
would not be a great disadvantage
after the students had given the con
vocations a trial. The council invites
expressions of opinion from the stu
dent body on this matter.
By a unanimous vote of the council
the combined efforts of its members
were pledged to Harold Holts, chair
man of the stadium campaign. Uion
being Informed of the action of the
council. Mr. Holts expressed himself
as highly pleased with it. as he be
lieved that it was a clear indication
of the interest the school was show
ing in the coming campaign.
The council passed unanimously
the resolution on student spirit which
appeared in the editorial columns ol
Friday's paper and it urges every
student to maintain at all times the
spirit shown at the games.
