University Players Produce
GIVE FIVE PERFORMANCES
Zolley Lerner and Beatrice
Hullet Applauded for Por
trayal of Leading Roles
"Liliom," a Hungarian drama, was
presented by the University Players
at th" Temple theater last evening.
This stirring drama, written by
Frar.z Molnar, was presented in ex
cellent ityle by the players, and was
well received by the audience. The
play was strong in atmosphere, and
unusually effective in stage-craft.
It will be presented in matinee and
evening performances today and
The lead role, that of a Budapest
tough, was skillfully portrayed by
Zolley Lerner who had played a
minor part in this same production'
with the Kansas City stock company
a few years ago. The swaggering,
swash-bucking bully with his char
acteristic undercurrent of tender
ness was supplemented by the char
acter of Julie, Miss Beatrice Hullett,
the servant girl who loved Liliom.
The favor of the audience seemed to
be very equally divided betwen these
two characters. The word "Liliom"
is Hungarian for "Lily," and a slang
term for ' tough."
Miss Hullett and Mr. Lerner were
supported in this Players' production
by an excellent cast. Martha Brun
ing as the owner of a merry-go
vnnnd in the Hungarian carnival, i
hardened woman of the world, was
excentionallv good. The part
Marie, a servant girl friend of Julie,
was acted by Pauline Gellatly, and

Annual Interfraternity Harrier
Event Run Off With Hun
dred Men in Starting Field
FARM HOUSE IS VICTOR
Farm House won the inter-fraternity
cross country yesterday with 23
and one-half points. The nearest ri
val was Theta Chi with 28 points.
Kappa Sigma won third with 40
points. Dexter, Theta Chi, won first
place with Jamrog, Phi Kappa, sec
ond and Clyde Batie third.
Coach "Jimmy" Lewis stated thaj;
it was the best inter-fraternity cross
country race since the event has been
established in intramural sports.
This, he statcd.was probably due to
the hare and hound chases which
have been run every week. Most of
the men who ran in the cross-country
were in excellent condition.
. Seventy-five Finish
About 100 men representing four
teen fraternities started the race
and about 75 finished. This is a much
larger percentage than usually fin
ishes. The race was run over the old
cross country course. The course was
about three miles in length, about
one half mile longer than it has been
in the past.
A trophy will be awarded the win
nng team. It will also win 75 points
on the all-year intramural sporting
events. All teams with three men fin
ishing will win SO points and the
winning team gets 45 points addit

For some unknown reason stu
dents have been noticeably negligent
in this matter. The number of up
per classr.iun who have had their pic
tures taken is considerably below the
mark of last year, according to
Dwight Wallace, editor of the year
book. "The cost of the photograph is
slight in comparison to the benefit
derived. The Cornhusker is a mem
ory book invaluable to the student
after he has completed his college
career and it is incomplete without
some record of his personal activities
and picture," stated Mr. Wallace.
Work will begin on the fraternity
and sorority pictures a week from
Monday, November 21. It is hoped
that this section can be closed be
fore the Christmas holidays.
Organization pictures will be tak

relay will be run at 3:30 o'clock.
The relay team has not yet been

last for ten minutes.
The free-for-all has been short

The last and most important event
of the Olympics will be the pole

The time has also been shortened on
this event so as to give the sopho
mores a more even chance. Those

The sophomore women proved to
be worthy foes and gave the seniors
something to worry about. The
score of the senior-sophomore game
stood at a tie until the last few min
utes of play. A lucky shot through
a quickly discovered hole in the
sophomore defense gave the senior
team the point that eventually gave
them the championship. The sopho
more team came in for second hon
ors, having suffered defeat only be
fore the irticks of the champions.
The junior women are credited
with one victory, and that over the
freshmen. The freshmen were no
match for their experienced elders.
They showed their sportsmanship
however, by coming up smiling after
the third defeat.
