""Tho Nobraskan will bo aont to any ud

AddrcBii all communlcatloiiB to Tho No

Something must bo done and dono
quickly In order to Htlr up soma ontli'is
Iiihiii for the Douno game. There seems
to bo an opinion prevailing, that thin
miimi Is to Ik- merely for practice. It Is
qulto tbo contrary. Despite Its Insigni
ficance, an wo aro wont to say, Douno
ranks well both In and out of tho state,
iih ii collcuo. Ono thing Is certain. It
bus n football team this year. It Is not
only tin- i". utorlul that Is there, but what
Ih Just an Important. It Is tlm ontlnulusm.
From pn-sent Indli-atlons, Douno Will
have as largo a following at tho mmu' as
Doiino Is "laying" for us this year. They
have hired a conch for two weeks Just
to beat us. They aro straining every
nerve to do It. Every student who stays
away from the gumo tomorrow, will help
tbo Douno men beat us. Our players
must have your support. And tho athletic
association must havo your support. Aro
you going to give it?
In theso times of lack of Inturest In uni
versity affairs, nowhero Is It more notlco
ablo than as shown toward thu proposi
tion offered by thu business managers
of tho Sombrero. A prize of ten dollars
has been offered for tho best story tho
second prize, that of having tho honor
of its publication. Another prlzo of llvo
dollars is offered for tho best poem. Al
thoiiKb theso offers have beon given all
publicity possible, no notlceablo returns
have resulted. In consequence, tho time
has been extended till January 1G. This
will give every one a Rood chauco to com
pose a winning story.
Tho Ncbraskan congratulates tbo Pal
ladlan society upon her sliver miniver
snry. Her members havo every reason
to rejolco upon tho society's good record
nud achluvments. Sbo is today ns she
has ever been, in tho foreground In so
cial and literary work. Tho university
recognizes her good work, and the lit.
ting character of her celebration, In sus
pending classes today. In securing ex
Chancellor Falrlleld to deliver tho an
niversary address tho society did wisely.
Let every student rejolco In tho Pallad
Ian society's great birth-day. Whatever
may bo our opinions upon literary work,
we have but ono sentiment, "long llvo tho
Thcro bus been a notlceablo bit of cn
courugement In football matters during
tho past week, but there is no feeling of
confidence as to tho result of tho Don no
game. Tho fact Is that our boys aro
"mighty scared." They havo good cause
to bo however. Donne remembers tho
unmerciful drubbing wo gave her last
year on her own grounds, and they aro
going to exert every effort to beat us.
To this end, thoy havo hired Charley
Thomas as coach a man above all men
whom wo fear In that position. Not on
account of Mr. Thomas' superior ability
ns a coach, but for tho reason that be
is most acquainted with our players and
our stylo of playing. Ho has a football
coach to buck against however, so wo
feel secure In this fact.
An Increased attendance means so
much more encouragement for our play
ers. Who Is thore, who was at tho
Doane game last year and does not ro
member how our hoys made gain nfter
gain, nil from tho fact that a crowd of
"rooters" stood at tho sldo linos and en
couraged thorn In their plays. No bettor
demonstration of tho spirit tbo crowd
can lond to our playors, Is needed, than
this one. To be sure it mndo somo of
Doano's gentlemanly nollcomon rather
angry but thoy got ovcr It after tho
game. So if everybody comes along to
morrow, and brings ills football spirit
with him, it moans success for our tonm.

Tbo Youthful Philosopher had never

needed to study unless ho was in Immed

Ho stood In the bottom library step,
and looked to tbo north end of the cam
pus whore there was a surging black mass
of students falling over each other In a
constant endeavor to see all tho players
In tbo football practice gamo like a
crowd of school kids following up a mi
gratory dog light.
"Here.'' said the Youthful Philosopher,
"I am amused to seo my esteemed fellow
creatures following their natural bent of
acting llko sheep. Although l am not
shepherd, 1 think 1 will walk over and
watch them from a distance."
Ho stepped down the remaining stair
and started .when someone running up
from tho ground lloor. collided with him
violently, nearly knocking him over tbo
scraper. Tbo Youthful Philosopher par
tially regained his equilibrium, felt his
back hair to seo If any was J.iried loose
and looked to see who his assailant was.
It was tho Prince of Liars.
"Hello," said tho Youthful Philosopher,
"Is that tbo usual way you come up tho

watch football?" ho asked.
"No." said the Youthful Philosopher.

ened his pace a little as he looked back
at tho library.
The Youthful Philosopher happened to
know that the Prince of Liars didn't have
any roommate, but he remained silent.
They approached the west steps and they
both saw that standing In the doorway

feigned to be very busy watching the
players, because bo didn't care to take

his stand on tho stone walk a few feot

that bordered on oxcltemont was onough
to throw tho Dear Thing Into tho first
stages of hysteria.

Tho Youthful Philosopher was getting
terribly bored and bo mndo no effort to
conceal It. Ho looked over toward the
library as If In search of something quiet
ing to think about, when he saw the Ex
citable Person came running bare-headed
down tho library stairs, eleven steps at
a time, and make for tho football Held
with his hair waving Joyously In thu
breeze. He stopped when ho saw tho In

Liars, and cairn toward him on the Jump,
"Where did you get that hut?" ho cried
u great deal louder than he needed to
This question seemed to be gutting age
and the Youthful Philosopher groanen
audibly. The Kxcltablo Person bad called
the attention of tbo group at the top of
the steps and they looked down In semi

"You swiped that hat off my table In
tbo library and you know It, and If you
over steal my hat agilu I'll"
Just then tbo wheezy gong In tho main
building went on. Tho Excitable Person
did not stop to divulge his dlro threat,
but started back to the library at tbo top
of bis speed, tightly grasping his recov
ered hat in bis hand.
'"Your memory seems to bo pretty poor
about your own clothes." remarked the
Youthful Philosopher dryly, looking at
tho hatless Princo of Liars. "I bellovo
