Several Changes on
Campus May Be
Several changes on the campus
will be noted by the alumni as they
visit the campus today. Some of
these changes are due to the progress
and achievement that attends any
growing Institution. Others have
come about by the inevitable work
of time and age.
Chief among these is the remodel
ing work taking place on old Ne
braska Hall. Weakening walls of
the structure made it necessary to
remove the third story and roof, re
placing the former style cf roof for
one of temporary designs. This one

ADVANTAGE OF WEIGHT
Both Teams on Edge for Game
Few Men to be Out
With the arrival of the Kansas
Jayhawkers scheduled for this morn
ing at seven o'clock, everything is in
on the two teams, according to the
weather forecasts for today. The
weather is expected to be fair and
cooler, and the sod in the Stadium
will probably be dry enough for a
good, fast game.
That a fast game will be played
here this afternoon is made apparent
Friday until they had barely enough
time to hop the rattlers for Lincoln,
and Coach Clark left no stone un
turned in the task of preparing his
men for Nebraska.
Looking on the other sic.
fence also, Coach E. E. Bearg has
not let the overconfidence germ work
into the minds of his proteges. While
Nebraska is a heavy favorite, the out
come of the Missouri game two weeks
ago is enough to stimulate any team
to action practice, practice, prac
tice. This was carried out all durinr
