Featuring a large figure of a col

trou-ors and red sweater with out
stretched hands holding illuminated
letters N and K, and a large red il
luminated "Welcome" sign above the
the whole emblematic of the eolege
spirit welcoming back the old gradu
ates, Sigma Thi-Epsilon won first
prize among the fraternities in the
annuiil Homecoming decoration of
fraternity and sorority houses, and
' the ripht to be -the first organization
to have its name engraved on the
new cup donated by the Fenton B.
Fleming jewelry company.
"Help us pluck the Jayhawk's fea
ther's" was the theme of Alpha 1 heta
decorations that won first place
among the sororities, and the silver
loving cup also donated by Fleming.
A fuzzy Jayhawk suspended in the
middle with the sign "Help us pluck
the Jayhawk's feathers" was, the cen
ter of the decoration. Above it was a
large "Welcome Grads" sign. On
ither side were large N letters with
long streamers extending from the
top to the ground.
There were so many good decor
ations this year that the judges were
hard put selecting the honorable
mention displays. Four fraternities
Phi Kappa, Phi Kappi Psi, Mu Sig
ma, and Sigma Alpha Epsilon were
awarded honorable mention grading.
Three sororities, Alpha Chi Omego,
Theta Phi Alpha and Alpha Omicron
Pi were given honorable mention.
The Alpha Chi Omega, first honor
able mention motif was an apt ac
companiment to the prize winner's
"Help ns pluck the Jayhawk" scheme
and showed a Cornhusker chasing a
Jayhawk from which all the feathers
had been plucked.
The Homecoming sentiments were
predominant in the Theta Phi Alpha
decoration, which centered about a
red brick hearth with the motto above
"Back to Our Hearth. A large let
ter N formed the Alpha Omicron Pi
decoration. i
The competition for first honor
able mention among fraternities was
so close that the judges decided to
rate them all practically on par.
Phi Kappa had a large letter N in red
"-ith an electric N above that, and
the University seal on either side of
a welcome sign. Phi Kappa Psi had
an elaborate scheme with an electric
"Welcome" sign in the middle, and a
numher of tombstones on the side
signifying the games won and to be
won by Nebraska. Kansas was des
'cribed as dying from Nebraskaitis.
Mu Sipma fraternity had a changing
red and white system of allumination
playing on a huge leter N. Sigma
Alpha Epsilon had Jayhawk behind
bars on top of a rock arch, with a
great ear of corn on top of the whole.
The rainy weather .note was struck
by Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity Show

The basis of judging the displays
was 50 per cent on artistic appear
ance, 25 per cent on originality, and
25 per cent on execution. The
judges were Otto F. Rempke, of May
er Bros. Company, D. V. Manrose, of
Kirsch of the School of Fine Arts.

be particularly interested in offer

His leter follows:
"University officials welcome the
discusions as to what should be done
with historic buildings, and appreci
ate the tone and temper of your re
cent editorial. However, it contains
one important error which should be
corrected. The writer has confused
old Nebraska Hall with the old U
Hall. Profesors Besey and Brace did
not work in U Hall. Their work
was in Nebraska Hall. Many dis
tinguished profesors, however, such
as Dean Edgren and others, labored
in U Hall; and the building has been
the center of student activities, pub
lications, etc., from the beginnin of
the University. It is rich in historic
sentiment, but unfitted for practical

Miss Addams is the founder of the
Social Settlement of Hull-House in
Chicago and many eminent women
have been associated with her in
the work there. Among them are
Miss Julia Lathrop, first chief of
the Federal Children's bureau a

Nebraska Football Team Turns in Twenty-First Win Over Jay
hawk Machine, 14-0, Before Audience of Six
teen Thousand in Stadium
Sophomore Back Plunges and Runs in Emulation of Choppy
Rhodes; Kansas Gridsters Provide Plenty of
Of Opposition to Nebraska Outfit
The Nebraska Cornhuskers turned in their twenty-first
football victory over Kansas yesterday afternoon, 14-0, and
alonp; with the victory came the appearance of a new star in
the Nebraska camp. He is Glen Presnell, DeWitt halfback
playing with Nebraska as a sophomore, and he plunged his
way to recognition yesterday emulating the veteran Choppy
Rhodes. It was the annual Homecoming game and was wit
nessed by about sixteen thousand fans who braved the rain
and cold to see the battle in the stadium.
The Jayhawks provided more opposition than they were
given credit for in pre-game dope. They held the Huskers
scoreless until the closing minutes of the third quarter, and
put up such stiff opposition that Nebraska failed to score twice
when they were within seven yards of the goal-line.

Article by Brownell
Urges Science Training
Prof. Herbert Brownell of the de
partment of secondary education is
the contributor of an article entitled
"Some Aspects of Physics Teaching"
in the current issue of school of
science and mathematics, the no
tional publication of the association
of science and mathematics teach
ers. The article is based on the
results of a study made at the Uni
versity last year by Miss ' Agnes
Undeland found that forty per cent
of the classes in science in Nebraska
high schools are taught by teachers
who have not had eight credit hours
of University preparation in that
subject She also found that the
average high school science teacher
is required to teach at least three
different science subjects. In his
article Professor Brownell discusses
these problems and urges that teach
ers be prepared to meet such conditions.
Nansas Opposition Stiff
The Kansas line was torn open
time after time by the Nebraska
backs, and the game was played al
most entirely in Kansas territory.
But with Nebraska touchdowns only
seven yards away, the Kansas team
twice tightened up and prevented a
The first touchdown came near
the close of the third quarter. Start
ing from the 44-yard line, the Husk
ers plunged straight down the field,
using straight football, for a touch
down. First Rhodes made five yards
then Presnell plunged for four; Pres
nell made it first down with another
plunge and on the next play broke
away for eleven yards. Rhodes went
off tackle for fifteen yards. A mo
ment later Rhodes hit the same hole
for a ten-yard gain, placing the ball
on Kansas' six yard line. Presnell
and Rhodes together pushed the ball
over for the score, and Brown drop
kicked the extra point.
The second, and last, touchdown
came as the result of another sopho
more's flashy play. Jug Brown,
who has already made himself a per
manent berth on the first squad, ran
back a punt for the counter. The
Huskers had run the ball to Kansas'
five yard line but had failed to score.
With his back to the goal-posts, An
derson punted forty yards to Brown,
and the former Lincoln high school
star ran forty-five yards in a beau
tiful exhibition of open-field run
ning. He had good interference and
crossed the line with no opposition.
Huskers Kept From Scoring
The invaders played sound foot
ball, but they lacked the strength to
beat Nebraska. The Huskers, in
their turn, did not show tHe, goods in
the first half at all. They haa plen
ty of power in the middle of the feild
but when they were within walking
distance of the goal line, they lack
ed the punch to push it across.
Baker, a flashy Kansas end, played
the individual star for the Jayhawks.
He broke through constantly to wor
ry the Nebraska backs, and was an
important factor in both the defense
and the offence. Schmidt, Kansas
will be in the Husker lineup for two
hawks were backed into their own
territory most of the time and did
not flash any aerial stuf. In the last
quarter, however, the invaders com
pleted several passes for long gains
which put them temporarily out of
danger. "
The Play-By-Play Report v.
First Quarter
Captain Smith of Kansas won the
toss and chose to defend the north
goal. Captain Ed Weir kicked off,
but the ball rolled dead on the fifty
yard line and was brought back for
another try. Ed Weir kicked off to
Kansas' ten yard line and Anderson
returned fifteen yards.
Weiiman punted forty yards to
Brown who returned seven yards. A
pass by Presnell was incomplete.
Presnell made five yards off left tac
