this Aveok. No ono dreamed of the

team's return from Kansas. When
the Nehkaskan appeared Saturday
evening with the account of tho
Kansas game, ultoul two hundred
boys Avonl through a coat-tail pa
rade, rang tho chapel bell, built a
bon-liro, and yolled themselves
hoarse. On receiving the score of
the Ottawa game, Monday even
ing, tho enthusiasm Avas increased,
everybody Avanted to give the boys
a royal entertainment on their re
turn Tuesday evening.
Tho shortness of the time pre
vented any elaborate preparations
being made. Tuesday -morning,
instead of chapel exercises, a mass
meeting of tho students was held
in the Armory. Tho Chancellor
made a short talk on athletics in
general. Ho said now Avas tho
tunc to take tho tide at its full and
givo athletics a boom in every line,
not only foot ball and base ball,
but tennis, lacrosse and golf. Aftor
a few remarks on professionalism,
the Chancellor suggested that avo
moot tho team at tho train, escort
them through tho city to the Arm
ory, where tho girls and tho mem
bers of tho faculty and ladies
Avould receive them. To sec just
how much veal'-rafhuRinsir. thero
really Avas, three mon Avore ap
pointed to stand at the door and
receive contributions. Everybody
gave a little, oven the young ladies,
and to tho supriso of every one
$!);. SO was raised. This will
purchase SAvealors, suits, and stock
ings, and send the team to Omaha
in tine stylo.
Tho afternoon was spent in pre
paring for the reception. At sev
en o'clock, a coach decorated Avith
scarlot and cream, and drawn by a
hundred boys, the band, Buck
statf's steam Avhistlc, and soA'cral
hundred yelling students, proceed
ed to tho M. P.' depot. As soon as
tho train arriA'cd, the boys Avero
carried on the shoulders of a hun
dred shouting students and depos
ited on the top of tho coach.
As for tho boys thcmsclA'os, they
did not quite understand the thing.
They rolled out of tho passenger
coach in a dazed sort of Avay,
upon a sea of heads and shoulders.
Without ceremony they Avere piled
upon tho tally-ho, which soon be
gan to move, preceded by tho howl
ing throng. When they had some
what recovered, they pinched each
other to see if thoy Avero aAvake,
and full' realizing that the cir
cumstances Avero not a fanciful cor
ation, they burst forth in tho fol-
lOAVing moiomus strain, kk We ro

of cannon from thocampuj. Such a
demonstration has never been seon
boforo in Lincoln. The streets
Avoro full of spectators, Avondoring
at tho enthasiasm shown and tho
immense throng of students.
At tho Armory tho faculty and
ladies, togethor Avith long lines of
the girls, Avero eagerly aAvaiting
tho arrival of tho mob. The band
entered first, followed by tho mem
bers of tho team carried on tho
shoulders of tho enthusiasts. After
numerous yells and tossing of the
toam, tho boys Avero called to tlio
Slatform amid deafening shouts,
no by ono they Avero called on to
toll "Iioav thoy did it." Flippin's
voice Avas cracked and husky, but
his countenance fairly beamed with
appreciation. He was followed by
Horn, Yont, and coach Crawford.
Tho conditions of their voices and
the noise in tho room prevented
many from hearing, but all know
what was said and applauded every

The first special program of the
Delian Society will be given in the

spared to make it ono of the best

following is the program:

Tho annual Thanksgiving feeds
of the Palladian and Delian So
cieties Avill take placo Tuesday
evening. Tho Palladians Avill hold
theirs, as usual, in their hall. Miss
Ilattie Hardin Avill entertain the
Dolians at hor homo on Seventeenth
and 11 streets.
These "feeds" are certainly very
pleasant atl'airs and servo a double
purpose in furnishing an enjoyable
social time and supplying the va
cancy left by the boarding houses.
It is noticed that the list of thoso
who are absent from drill is not
nearly so large as it Avas accustomed
to bo last year. This is owing to
tho more military manner in Avliich
the battalion is being conducted
this year. It is the intention of
the lieutenant to enforce strict mil
itary discipline, as far as possible,
and every opportunity to do this is
taken a(hrantago of.

Tho Ottawa team has seven uf
tho old Baker men on it (it is con
sidered the saiuo team), and is in
much better shape this year than
the Baker team Avas last year. It
had not been beaten for two years
and a half, until last Monday,
Avhon it ran up against a snag.
At LaAvrence we Avero advised
not to play the Ottawa team, as
thoy wore considered the "tough
est lot of sluggers that overplayed
on a gridiron," and then, too, tho
K. U. men said that thero Avas not
the slightest chance of our Avinning

LaAvrence men Avont doAvn to Otta

with just a suggestion of a Kansas
breeze from the south. The grounds
Avere marked out on the natural
prairie. Around tho ropes stood
about ,")()( enthusiasts, and outside
of these paced a line of sentinels of
the Ottawa cadets.
The teams lined up as folloAvs:

OltaAway looses Iavo yards, and
then Toomoy punts for forty-five

then Thomas makes three yards,
