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.

Chancellor Welcomes Discussion On Future of In a letter to the Daily Nebraskan Chancellor Samuel Avery invites commont on disposition of old Uni versity Hall or the erection of a me morial to it. Because of the senti ment attached to the building, the first on the campus, graduates will be particularly interested in offer ing suggestions, he thinks. 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 use. NAME WORKERS FOR CARNIVAL Robert M.

In , Nebraska One of Few Universities To Have Federal Weather Bureau The man who is always looking I for sunshine he is Thomas A. Blair, head of the U. S. Weather Bureau at Lincoln and may be found any day in his office in the "e labor atory. This bureau is one of the few in the United States which is located in University quarters and co-operating with the University. All weather bureaus, and there are over two hun dred stations similar to this one in the United States, are connected with the Department of Agriculture. The work in stations differs according to local conditions, and most of them are located in federal buildings.

Many social reforms have started at Hull-House. It wps there that open air schools, Americanization work, the playground movement, manual training, domestic science and the school garden movement had their origin.

There are also instruments giving contin uous automatic records of the wea ther conditions. These records are kept and make a permanent history. They are valuable to engineers who are working on drainage problems, overflow, and sewers. By using the records the normal climate of Neb rnnka can be established. There are similar stations located in about one hundred and thirty-five smaller towns over the state. They are less complete and are operated by local men and women who volun teer to keep a record of the temper ature and rainfall. They are unpaid observers only thermometers, rain guages, and official forms of station ery are furnished. They keep a daily record of the temperature and send in the results to thi3 office, which is the center of this section. They are examined, checked and ta bulated, and put on a monthly bulle tin, called Climatological Data. This (Continued on Page Three.)

HUSKERS DEFEAT KANSAS IN HOMECOMING CONTEST Nebraska Football Team Turns in Twenty-First Win Over Jay hawk Machine, 14-0, Before Audience of Six teen Thousand in Stadium GLEN PRESNELL SHOWS UP 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. AS NEW BACKFIELD STAR 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 score. 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 kle. Presnell made three yards through the same hole. Ed Weir punted thirty yards to Anderson, who returned five yards, Stiner making the tackle. Schmidt failed to gain at center. Mackie made a yard at center. Wellman's punt was partial ly blocked and Presnell recovered on Kansas' thirty-six yard line. Pres nell mad'3 five yards of f right tackle. Rhodes made two yards.
