one submitted by a sorority.
The characters for the Kappa act
are an artist and his models. The
entire skit is fashioned in the form
of a review, and includes a great
deal of singing and dancing. The

Nebraska Gridmen Are Defeated In Spectacular Game Before
Crowd of 25,000 Rooters; Howell Makes Two
Touchdowns and McMullen Kicks Goal
Huskers Hold Opponents To Low Score and Outplay Them At
Times But Are Unable to Overcome Panther Lead;
Howell and Presnell Are Outstanding Stars
(Special to The Daily Nebraskan)
Pittsburgh, Pa., November 12. In the most spectacular
game ever played in the new Pitt stadium at Pittsburgh, Pa.,
the Nebraska Cornhuskers held the strong Golden Panthers
of the University of Pittsburgh to a 21-13 score before a crowd
of 25,000 frenzied rooters. The Husker3 not only held the
Panthers to a low score but outgained, ourushed, and outpassed
the potential champions of the east, scoring nine first downs
to Pittsburgh's eight.
On the first kickoff of the game, Richards kicked to Cap
tain Welch of the Panthers who caught the ball on his own
three-yard line and then pulled off the greatest feat of the
day by running 97 yards through the entire Husker team for a
touchdown. After he passed the 35-yard line the Panther cap
tain had an open field for a touchdown. Booth added the extra
point from placement and the score stood Pitt 7, and Nebras
ka 0.
Panels for Junior and Senior
Sections Will Be Sent To
Engravers Wednesday
The panels for the junior and sen
ior class sections of the Cornhusker
will be sent to the engravers Wed
nesday morning, according to Dwight
Wallace, editor of the yearbook. All
pictures appearing in this section
must have been taken by that time.
The Nebraska yearbook will con
tain one of the most elaborate sec
tions which will appear in college
annuals this year. The staff, the
members point out, are going to
considerable expense for these sec
tions and so have been particularly
desirous of having a representative
number of pictures appear.
Panels Must Go Wednesday
"A large number of juniors and
seniors have not reported to the stu
dios. The panels will go to the en
gravers Wednesday regardless of the
number who have had their pictures
taken," the editor declared.
Cards are being sent to all class
members who have not had their pic
tures taken, urging them to do so.
Definite assignments are being given
to the class members by the stiff
and if the students do not respond
to this, the staff members say it will
be necessary to omit them from the
class sections of this year's book.
More than 800 member have re
ported thus far, leaving an equally
large number who are to report be
fore Wednesday in order to appear
in the book.
Y.M.C.A. Opens
Fiftieth Year In
New York, Nov. 12. The student
work of th Y. M. C. A. in 700 col
leges tnd universities, 200 prepara
tory schools aiid 50 theological sem
inaries of the United States and
Canada is celebrating its fiftieth an
niversary this fall under the greatest
stimulus since the movement was
launched at the Louisville interna
tional Y. M. C. A. contention back
in J 8 77.
This stimulus is the assurance of
an enlarged measure of self-govern
ment as a major division of tl e Y.
M. C. A., co-equal in status with the
home division under the jurisdiction
of which it formerly existed as a de
partment. Action toward this goal
has just been taken by the National
Council of the United States at its
fourth annual meeting in Chicago.
The change will not become com
pletely effective until a constitution
al amendment is ratified a year
The National Council of Student
associations also advocated a mea
sure to counteract the growing mate
rialism and "realism" of the col
leges. "The greatest need" it de
clared, "is a restatement of religious
truth in terms compatible with the
best knowledge and tht n?t scrupu
lous intellectual honesty." Experi
mentation was urged to find meth
ods to , solve the issues arising out
of "changing standards of marriage
and relations of men and women,
conflicts between racial groups and
industrial and international rela
tions." .
Bicycle riding is the latest sport
for co-eds at Northwestern university.
After the first minute of play
Presnell caught the next kickoff on
his own two-yard line and raced to,
the 43-yard line before he was
stopped after a beautiful gain. The
Huskers made several small gains
through the Pitt line but were forced
to kick. Pitt completed a 17-yard
rass on which play Bron3on was hurt
and .i;..ain "Jug" Brown replaced
' an.
Nebraska got the ball on downs
and Presnell ripped off his second
brilliant run of the game when ha
sk-rttid the Pitt right end for a
thirty-one-yard gain. Howell broke
through Pitts' left tackle for eleven
yards and Presnell added four more.
Afior two plays Howell went over
the Pittsburgh goal line from the
two-yard line to score Nebraska's
first touchdown. McMullen made
his placement try good. This touch
down came after a powerful iifty
yard march down the field by the
Husker backs, and ended the scoring
for the first period.
Pitt Makes Second Score
Pittsburgh's second score came as
the second quarter started when
Pitt had the ball on her own thirty
six yard line. Hagan ran to the far
left side of the field, cut straight
down the field, juggled through the
Husker secondary defense, till held
on open field, and raced sixty-three
yards for the second Pitt touchdown.
Booth added the extra point, making
the score Pitt 14 to Nebraska 6.
Captain Welch later scored when he
took a long' high pass from Hagan
and ran sixty yards for a touchdown.
Booth again kicked goal. The half
ended soon after with Pittsburgh in
possession of the ball. The Huskers
far outplayed the Panthers for the
remaining of this period but the
Pittsburgh line stiffened when the
