ter to friends in the old alma mater.
"My team is getting along in good
shape. We beat Henkelmnn 44-0 and
Orleans R7-6, using the second team

see they are quite green. We play

may get beat, as they outweigh us ten

Sophomores Planning to Take
tne Measure of Yearling
Warriors in Minor Events
Extensive Preparations Being
Made to Handle All Events
in Record Time
Olympics come October 21.
For years, the freshmen have car
lit d off the honors in the class scran
held on homecoming day.
This year, if the powers that be in
a physical way make it possible, the
sophomores hope and pray to carry
off the honors. They have not the
slightest hope of winning in the pole
rush; they expect Ward Kelley to be
pullei, down from the top of the pole.
Hut the second-yard men are hoping
i and planning to carry off the points
il'i tlie re'ay races, the boxing events,
1 1 he wrestling events, and if by na
tural and physical strength it is pos
sible, they hope to carry off the points
in the can rush. Last year the fresh
men won this event by a hair or
r 1 1 her by about one pair of hands and
this year the men who fought for the
honor last year hope to, by their ex
perience, carry off the honors in this
year s rush.
And toward this end the sophomores
lire working. The ron Sphinx have
plans laid for the sophomore tryouts.
Kelley will soon appoint his Olympic
committee. The Sphinx are sponsor
ing boxing and wrestling tryouts to
hci held Wednesday and relay tryouts
to be held next Saturday. The wrest
ling and boxing troyouts will be held
in the gymnasium. Many of the box
ers and wrestlers who fought for the
lass of H25 last year are in school
4gain this year. These men are ex
pected to try for another chance to
.ipho'd the honors of their class.
It is generally agreed the sopho
mores must organize it they are to
beat the freshmen. It is an unheard-
thing, an almost inconceivable
phenomenon for I'niversity students ro
think of the sophomores carrying off
the Olympics. The Iron Sphinx and
all the other men of the sophomore
class are planning to organize now.
They are planning such an effective
organization that the class of 1!I2G can
not, conquer it. They are organizing
on the principle that team work wU
boat brute strength and overyhelining
Every fraternity Is urged to see that
its underclassmen attend the tryouts
both Wednesday and Saturday. It is
considered the duty of all second-yeai
men to fight In tlie Olympics and only
by getting the best men 1n the sopho
more class will the sophomores win.
The mouthers of the Iron Sphinx
Olympic committee are Marlon Har
lan, chairman, George Scott and
i'eiald Carpenter.
Sophomore Class to
Meet Next Thursday
There will be a meeting of the
sophomore c'ass in tlie Social Science
Auditorium Thursday at 11 o'clock.
Officers will he elected and the Olym
pics will he discussed.
The committee in charge of the
Olympics is, C.eorge Scott, Marian Hif
lan and Herald Carpenter. Other com
mittees will lie announced later.
The South Dakota game, long anticipated, Is now passed. We had the
long end of a 6(1-0 score. Our athletic horizon has cleared up a bit. In
fact we are beginning to feel a little optimistic about our future games.
I, is all right to fool optimistic to a certain degree, but we don t want
to let our optimism get the better of us and cause us to "get the swelled
head." and expect our teams to run up nothing but big scores.
The South Dakota team did not offer us as much resistance as wo
expected but that does not mean that we will not get twice as much as
we ate expecting, from some of the others. Look at the games that are
coming- K. I'.. Kansas Aggies, Ames. Oklahoma, Syracuse and Notre Dame.
AH of these teams know our style of play somewhat and have been "laying
for us" over a vear. They are going to try their very best to carry away
the honors themselves, and it will be a hard job for us to prevent it. We
don't want to look for big scores like the South Dakota one; we want to
be satisfied with winning.
U it can only be remembered that every other schoo', and every other
team is Just as anxious to get the honors as we are, and that there Is jus
as much honor in Just winning as in "running away" with the game, we
will be all right. We should always keep in mind "fight 'em. fight 'em.
fight 'em." but keep out our over-confidence. We're in to do our best,
and win If we can. Therefore, don't be "nagging" If we don't make big
Rcores, and be happy that we can win.
Keep Close Tab
On Frosh Caps
Freshmen must wear their green
Such is
the decree handed down
by the members of Iron
last week
Friday a box was placed in I'-hall
with a sign telling all students who
knew of freshmen not wearing emer
ald headgear to insert the names of
the first-year men so violating Ne.
braska traditions in that box.
Monday afternoon, the sign on the
box was missing and to the students
who are not Sphinx, the wooden re
ceptacle meant nothing.
Hut such action of a freshman or
two is nuL to prevent the enforce
ment of the green cap tradition. Now
a call is going forth to all loyal stu
dents to report to any member of the
Iron Sphinx the names of freshmen
who fail to wear their green caps.
Every fraternity has two Sphinx.
Students knowing of freshmen violat
ing rules of the school need hut call
the fraternity and inform one of the
Sphinx there about the infringement.
The Sphinx are anxious for student!
to do this. The Innocents have put
it up to them to enforce the green
cap tradition. Dean of Men Daw says "Do it by all means, hut do
not create hospital hills for me to
pay." It is up to the Sphinx to obey
the trust laid in them. Students
should co-operate by helping them.
Green Goblins are also on the gen
eral I'niversity committee for tlie en
forcement of the wearing of the
green headgears. The Goblin.s
should report to the Sphinx all fresh
men who are not wearing the emer
ald headgears.

'The Thirteenth Chair" Is Title
of the First Play of the
Winter Season
lo Start Campaign fcr Sale of
Season Tickets on Friday
the Thirteenth
"The Thirteenth Chair" is an
nounced as the opening play of Vni
orsity Players' 1922-23 season. This
is the play which created such a
stir in dramatic circles a few years
ago and his been wonderfully suc
cessful in stock and road shows since
then. The Players will give "The
Thirteenth Chair," a full scenic pro
duction at the Temple theatre on
October 26, 27 and 2S, with an added
performance as a matinee Saturday
tiie 2Sth.
The Players will offer season tick
?ts for sale this season as in pre
'. ;,u;, years and the sale will com
mence on Friday, October 13. The
ticket season tickets for night per
toimances will be sold at the same
price at last year three dollars and
fifty cents. The Matinee tickets
are to be offered as a special induce
ment to the students who it has been
said aic often unable to purchase
the iigilar season tickets for '.lie
night pt i lormance. These matinee
tickets will be worth two dollars anil
fifty cents, but in accordance with
the earnest desire of the Players to
get tlie students out to these splen
did plays the management is offer
ing them at a reduced price of two
Needless to say the real reason
back of this movement to get the
students out to these performances
of the I'niversity Players is simply
that the Players are a student or
ganization and are trying to bring
that particular branch of I'niversity
activity into the position it justly de
serves in the I niversity lite. J ne
Payers want tlie students and the
students will enjoy the Players.
Owing to the fact that the execu
tive dean has requested that the
practice of offering prizes to those
students or organizations who have
heretofore engaged in contests in
order to sell the tickets, be aban
doned, the Players are unable thi.
year to offer any material induce
ment to the ones who will be called
to sell the tickets. In a way this
will be a decided disadvantage, but
the idea back of tlie executive dean's
request is splendid. It is in a word,
loyally. Loyalty to the I'niversity
and its organizations. If the proper
spirit is shown, tho tickets will be
easily sold.
Aside from the point of loyalty and
school spirit is the actual induce
ment offered in the plays them
selves. The Players will open with
a scenic production, of Bayard
Veiller's most exciting mystery
drama, "The Thirteenth Chair."
Theatergoers will recall this play's
being in Lincoln on tour a few years
!igo. From the reception accorded
"Seven Keys to Haldpate" last sea
son this play will be warmly re
ceived. The Players will follow up
with "East Is West," that sensation
al success of three reasons .ago,
which made Fay Haintner a star.
There have been dozens of people
already asking concerning this play
alone. Eugene O'Neill's "Beyond the
Horizon" will come third in order,
but not in importance. This is the
lirsl time that "East Is West" and
"Beyond the Horizon" have been in
The fourth product ion will he
"Turn to the Right," and nothing
need be said of lliis play except that
it is the same big success that played
Lincoln two seasons ago. The next
production will be one of James Bar-rif.-g
"Dear Brutus," and in secur

Players have indeed ben most for

William Gillette was starred in the

"Merry Wives of Windsor." They
will follow their usual practice of
staging their Shakespearean produc
tion in a a most elaborate manner.
Don't forget that the season tick

formances of these six plays will go
on sale on Friday the 13th. They
will be sold at Ross P. Curtice's
music store and the matinee tickets
for students at the special reduced
price, will be sold on the campus
