"Beat Pitt" was the thought up
permost in tlie minds of the Corn
Cobs when they met Wednesday

week of nre-game rallies.

Cobs have borne the brunt of cam
pus scorn because of their failure
to get behind rallies properly,"
President Bob Pilling stated late
Wednesday night. "But now we
are going to show the whole school,
the city, and the state just wnat
Corn Cobs mean to the univer
sity." Spirited discussion from the

a Pitt defeat this year if the
school's football prestige Is to be
maintained. The motion to back

the coliseum, the Barb council de
cided at a meeting Wednesday
Declaring themselves heartily in
favor of the plan advanced by the
Innocents society last week, coun
cil members were enthusiastic
about their part in the project.
"As sponsors of the All-Univer
sity parties we have long felt the
necessity for such decorations,"
said Jack Coupland, council presi
dent, "and we will make every ef
fort to make this year's parties
successful enough to permit a
large contribution to the decora
tions fund."
Coupland pointed out that the
greater number of students at
tending future parties, the greater
the chance for a large surplus at
the end of the year. He also ex
plained that since decorations for
this year's affairs have already
been arranged for, they will be
continued as m the past.

In Transoceanic Debate
A transoceanic debate, with Co
lumbia university orators on one
side of the Atlantic and Cambridge
speakers on the other, this week
was scheduled for the night of Dec.
17. The question to be debated
will be announced shortly.
Dear Dads:
The university as a whole, the Innocents society, and
the various organisations on the campus are., issuing
special invitations to every student's father to come to
Lincoln for Dads Day, Nov. 12. A number of attractive
inducements are being advertised for the weekend of
Nov. 12, in an effort to arouse your interest and make it
really worth your while to be here.
But we know that the invitation that will really get
you here is the personal invitation from your own son
or daughter, and that the inducement that will really
attract you is the opportunity to see the things your
children are interested in and closely associated with.
It is for that reason particularly that the Innocents
society welcomes you and urges you to make a special
effort to be here. If your own son or daughter neglects
to write to you. kindly excuse them on the grounds that
thsy are very busy and sometimes forgetful. Consider
this a personal invitation to be here Nov. 12.
To the Dads of University of Nebraska Students:
As governor, I want to weloome you to the big
game Saturday, Nov. 12. As dads of the students at
our great state university you will be offered special
attention that day. You will enjoy the game, all of
the festivities of the day and the hospitality of the
whole university community. Your presence will be
an additional inspiration to our Nebraska team in its
battle with a worthy foe. A better acquaintance
with your university will help you to understand its
problems and give you more reasons for pride in its
New York Dramatic Critics
Comment Favorably
on Production.
"As Husbands Go." the next
play to be given by the University
Pinver will start the week of
November 14, instead of Novem
ber 7, and run continuously to
Saturday, November 19, according
to Miss H. Alice Howell, director
of the players.
Written by Kacnei uromers,
prominent author, "As Husbands
Cin" is a romnarativelv new Dlav.
It first appeared on the New York
stage in 1931, wnere aner a long
mn in thp John Golden theater, it
was reviewed by New York critics
as being an exceptionally success
ful play.
Contrast Minds,
The plav concerns the home
comine- of two old ladies from
Dubuque after a summer vacation
in Paris, where they not only fell
in love with the city itself but two
Parisian eierolos as well. When
they return to the United States
the Eisrolos come witn mem, ana
the audience is treated to a view
of European and American minds.
According to Mark Van Doren,
who reviewed the play in The
Nation, "The new comedy by
kachel Crothers, 'As Husbands
Go' will undoubtedly have the suc
cess Miss Crothers usually has. It
is full of clever lines, nice people,
clear sentiment, and an intelligent
Francis Fergusson of the Book
man says "Miss Crothers' new
play is both sane and realistic. She
tells the familiar tale of American
women who are bored with the
men they know at home and go to
Europe in search of excitement
and understanding."
The cast for the new play has
not been announced as yet, ac
cording to Miss Howell but will
probably be next week. According
to Charles Hoff, business manager
of the Players, a few good seats
are still available for each night.

implied that money is waiting in

As a matter of fact there was a

Tales of tho large "bonuses"
which business managers of the
Daily Nebraskan and Cornhusker
pocketed at the end of the year are
not entirely imaginative. And not

profit from senior invitations.
But this is no longer the case,
