Anyone who could have attended
one of the gladitorial contests in
Rome or Athens and then watched the
Kansas Aggie-Nebraska game would
have declared that the pomp and cere
mony between halves surpassed all
the novelty that Nero was ever able
to bring before his fellow citizens.
Never before has a follower of the
Nebraska team witnessed a bigger Jub
ilee, a more glorious celebration, a
greater exhibition of the spirit that
makes football games more than foot
ball games.
The well-meant taunts, the good
sportsmanship, all went to strengthen
the foundation upon which athletic
contests are built. In keeping with
Dads' Day the Corncobs, Nebraska's
pep organization, escorted Jack Best
around the field amidst the cheering
of every spectator In the stands. The
Grand Old Man nodded in approval of
the compliments. Each Corncob held
a balloon in his hand and at the signal
of the Chief Cob, every one released

in Bcdy Following Enter
tainment in Armory
More than a thousand Nebraska
Dads and sons took possession of the

braska's first annual Dads Day. At
noon, the dads gathered at a cafeteria
luncheon in the Armory, where speech
es by Chancellor Avery, Mayor Zeh
rung, Coach Dawson and Captain Hart
ley of the football team, made up the
program. Following the luncheon, the
dads and their sons attended the Nebraska-Kansas
Aggie game on the ath

reserved for them.
Chnnncey Nelson, president of the
Innocents, who introduced the speak

Mayor Zehrur.g declared that he had
been sure that the city of Lincoln
would raise the amount.
"I was sure of this." he said, "be
cause I knew that the city of Lincoln
is made up of the right kind of peo
ple. The city not only receives a great
financial benefit from the University."
the mayor continued, "but it also re
ceives a splendid supply of fine man
hood and womanhood."
Mayor Zehrung also declared that
fellowship between father and son
should be promoted. He pointed out
that the father and son movement was
doing a great work, because the fel
lowship It developed caused boys to
grow into better men.
"I am glad to welcome you to an
institution that belongs to you," said
Chancellor Avery in welcoming the
Dads to the University. The Chan
cellor also stated that he hoped that
Dad's Day would become a. tradition,
because he believed that it was an ex
cellent idea.
"The University should be a family
affair." declared Coach Dawson. He
said that if the University were to be
a success every person in Nebraska
must have some interest In it. The
'oach also invited the Dads to give
him suggestions or criticisms regard
ing the operation of the athletic de
partment. "The school is starting one of the
finest traditions that has ever been in
stituted," said Harold Hartley, foot

CJelebraticn Starts With Parads
and Winds Up With Victory
Over Ag Team
From early morning till late night
the students of the College of Busi
ness administration celebrated on Fri
day. Starting "their" day with a big
parade in the morning, the "Bizads"
conducted a brilliant celebration.
Twelve Lincoln business lioness
formed a nucleus about which the
morning parade was organized. The
students marched two abreast and the
long line of "P.izads" was interspersed
with the business floats. Forming by
Social Science building, the parade
followed down Twelfth street to P.
down P to Tenth, on Tenth to O, and
out O to Seventeenth and Antelope
Park. During the entire parade, the
"Bizads" announced their coming by
blowing long and furiously upon horns
and whistles supplied them by the
Games at Park.
Reaching the park shortly after 10
o'clock, the merry-makers fell immedi
ately into the task of enjoying them
selves until meal time. Boxing
matches, wrestling contests, inter
class tug-of-wars, baseball games, and
other amusements kept the "Bizads"
The faculty especially enjoyed it
self. A tug-of-war arranged between
faculty men and the "Bizad" girls was
the obbject of much amusement when
besides trying to pull all of the girlf
the teachers also attempted to uproot
a tree. Some "Bizad" jokers had an
chored the one end of the rope to a
stout tree.
Appetites were keen long before
Billy, the lunchman, arrived on the
scene with the noon lunch. Finally,
however, the eats arrived and a long
line of hungry "Bizads" filed past the
lunch stands. The line extended for
fully a block, and was held so tight
that transients were not allowed to
pass back and forth.
A hugh bonfire furnished the set
ting about which the hungry students
and faculty members ate. An eight-
piece orchestra furnished occasional
music for the repast, and some lew
men who were lucky enough to grab
off one of the few girls enjoyed a lit
tle public dance.
Immediately following the meal, a
group of students started soliciting
subscriptions for "The Bizad,"the new
monthly publication for the college.
Captain Dean Le Rosslgnol's pre
liminary prediction that the seniors
would have a tough battle to carry off
the honors In the faculty versus sen
iors baseball game was carried ont
when the game was played following
the lunch. The seniors won, but only
after a hard battle, the final score be-

The forward passing of the Jay
hawk Farmers was the best ever seen
