of his former agreement to play tho
Thanksgiving game at Lincoln Instcud
of Omaha, Tho outrageous terms do
mamleil by the Omaha tnunngors, have
led to somo corresponding on tho part of

was praotlbly agreed, that unless tho
terms were reasonable, tho Kamu this
year was to be played In Lincoln, and
tho Kamo next year, In Dos Moines. Tho

If they had subsidized htm.
Word Is still waltliiK to bo received
from tho Council muffs football team, as
to whether they will accept our terms and

"Whllo It Is rather late, Mr. Oury says that
he Is quite willing tlmt tho bonrd should

could arrange better dates with regular
college teams, possibly with Mlchlgnn.
Sevoral more or less Important foot

liberal and a choice of dates was offered
that mndo a selection ensy. Novcmuor IS,
Is the day that has been selected, which
falls on Wednesday. Correspondence
with tho university of Illinois will bo bo

by tho now students to ovorthrow tho

class on w.ount of tho prop dopartmont
which they bolongcd to lost year, nut
tho ox-props would not listen to tho now

Word wns received yesterday, that on
account of a failure of an Iowa bank,
Mr. Hanson, father of tho football play

That Captain Oullfoylo Intends to mako

that when the new adonimonts appear,

NO CHANGE IN WEATHER
But tho Weather Department Has
MADE GOOD IMPROVEMENTS.
Tho United States Government Put
tho Improvements, mid It was
Done lu tho right way
Whllo a number of departments In tho
dllToront parts of tho campus have boon
Improved during tho summer by ndorn
monts nnd nddltlonnl working facilities,
nono havo boon qulto so kindly treated
as tho weather department, which, al
though located lu one of tho stato build
ings, Is In reality a United States oilico
nnd is run by United States omployees.
It Is probably on this account that
tho Improvements thero havo been so
About two yen rs ngo, Geo. A. Loveland
was sent to this station by tho govern
ment to net Jointly with Professor
Swczey, stato meteorologist, In tho print
ing of bulletins and other data In tho lino
of weather observations. Mr. Love
land's push gradually brought first ono
Improvement and then another to thlj
station, such as a commission to isstio
dully maps and making local forocasts,
until ilurlnK tho present summer tho
work being dono here wns greater than
that done In Omaha and many other
largo cities. About this tlmo Willis G.
Mooro tho uhlof of tho wcathor bureau
mndo a visit to this station with tho In
tention, as was afterwards learned, of ro-
movliiK It to Omaha. Ho was so pleased
however, at tho work being dono hero
and at tho facilities In tho line of rail
road servlco for getting out tho dally
maps promptly, that Instead of removing
tho station, ho decided to Increase It anil
put In tho most recent improvehents. So
It was not long beforo workmon wero
at work and tho beautiful ofilces and
well nppolnted work and mailing rooms
wero the result. '
Tho first Improvement was tho chango
of tho map making process from tho old
mlleogruph process to the chalk-plato
Tho first map by this process made In
this olllco wns made August G, and slnco
then up till October 1, the press has .been
run by foot power. Now, however, a
line Wosttnghouso motor has bcon put in
and maps as well us other printed mat

As for tho offices, they havo bcon en
tirely nhnnged. Tho old cast entranco
to Nebraska hall has been closed up nnd
tho floor of the main building extended
to the end of tho building. This makes
a fine, well lighted, mailing room which
Is used by tho weather bureau and tho
experiment station Jointly. Tho old
room 14 has boo partitioned off Into threo
rooms. Tho llrst, opening from tho hull
