The football toiim bus yet to meet do
fcat. Every gnmo that Iiiih been played
shows thi' effective character of tho train
ing. Our boys are certainly after the pen
nant this year, and If present signs In
dicate anything, tho realization Is not a
dream. Evory university student Is
watching with eager eye the games, and
of course, hoping for ns many victories.
Let the team continue Its earnest practice
and fair ploying, and at tho closo of tho
season, wo will all Join In giving three
cheers for our football team nnd tho pen
There Is no reason for the friends of tho
football team 10 bo discouraged at tho
showing the boys made Saturday In tho
game against Wuslojan. Of course the
Methodists were "easy" n.vl after the
first ten mlnates' play, It looked as If Ne
braska would have a walk-a-way. The
players have to have an Incentive to play
what Is called good football. It cannot
be done against a team when victory is
sure. The general effect of tho game will
be to make the members of tho toam ploy
border. A little set-back always has Its
good results. If Wesloyon did score., it
Is no sign that other teams that we 'know
It is to bo hoped that tho work of the
college settlement will be pushed. Thore
are hundred of students in tho university
who have not identified thcmsolvos with
Y. M. C. A. work, who would be willing
to work energetically under such circum
stances as a college settlement offords.
These people should bo brought out and
their Identy made known. Tho work of
the settlement Is not only good for hu
manity, but as Professor Hodgman bos
said. It Is good for every student. There
should bo a more general interest taken
In this affair. It was started in tho right
way by making it a student affair. The
students should see that It is successfully
pushed, and that It does not lag from want
There Is no doubt but Hint the univer
sity will send the greatest crowd of root
ers to the lown-Nebraska game, that has
t-vir left this city. The prospects ure that
the championship and tho pennant win
ners will be decided at this gamu. It is
fitting that wo make this an occasion of
the greatest enjoyment. This means that
wc want some well organized yelling and
singing. It Is certain that no ono has over
regretted the money he spent while at
tending the ThunksgMng game. A great
factor In the pioasure gotten from this
game, has been done through the good
natured rooting of the Nebraska boys.
Someone should take hold of this matter
nnd push it. The Nebraskan is ready with
Us space to print any songs and yells
that may be handed In. This Is a good sea
sonable time to start. What Is wanted
can be selected, and there Is lots of time
to practice. Let the songs come in, ana
we'll make the Thanksgiving game an oc
casion of great pleasure.

to ma e he debates this yoar a royal suc
cess, Much comment has beon called forth
lately upon the advisability of students ac
cepting free transportation to go homo to
vote. This Is certainly nn ethical ques
tion as woll as a business one. To bo
sure no one Is In tho least Inlluenced In
voting by accepting; these generous of
fers from those who think only of furth
ering partisan ends. Hut let us ask, what
Is the primary object In distributing flee
railroad transportation among thu follow
ers of a party organization? Is this gen
erosity for the good of humanity? If so,
why do not nil bo treated alike regard
less of parly, color or creed' Our pro
fessor of phllosoph spoke wisely when he
said, "that from a business point of view
It may do for students to honor such fav
ors, but from a moral and ethical aspect
It Is wrong." College students by nil
means should be typical examples of the
"scholar In polities". Tho public scrutin
izes the actions as well as the appearance
of college men. Whatever they do causes
weight. If they scrutinize the tactics of
tho average politician as pralseworthlly
and do not strive to elevate and purify
political thought and methods, then, from
whom must those needed roforms In tho
body politic emanate? Tho right of suf
frage Is our birthright. Let us honor that
gift and not lot It be contaminated by such
a paltry favor as n "pass."
WHAT VESLEVAN SAYS,
Tho Nebraska Wosloyan has this to say
of the game. "According to Mr. Lee tho

would defeat us by a score of 50 to 0. This
expectation probably accounts for tho
small number present who wore tho senr

pathisers who crawled in through a hole
in tho fence. As It stands Manager Oury
may congratulate himself upon his friend

The now book on football by Walter
Camp and Lorln Dolnnd, was put upon
the mnrkct Saturday. It Is published by
Houghton, Mllllln nnd Co., Boston, Mass.
Tho schedule prlco of tho book is $2.00.
It contains about three hundred pages, Is
durably and neatly bound, and is very In
teresting rending for anybody who ever
expects to witness a football game or un
derstand Its more technical points. It Is
a book that prollts both the player and
spectator by reading It It contains some
good diagrams illustrating tho newest
plays. It is strictly up-to-dnto, as every

WON'T YOU GIVE YOUH LOVE TO ME
Wo have Just received a copy of the
above-named beautiful song with a splen
did waltz chorus. It Is now bolng sung
In all tho prominent theatres In New
York. Hoston and Philadelphia. Follow
ing are the words of the chorus:
Won't yuu give your love to mo and tako
Ever to abide with yours alone, Hweot-
There to dwell through all eternity
Darling won't you give your love, your
love to me?
Prlco 40 cents per copy. All readers of
our paper will receive a copy at half price
by sending 20 cents in silver or postage
stamps to the Union Mutual Music Co.,

The Nebraskan wishes to call the atten
tion of the students to the preliminary de
bates. They begin next Monday evening
und will continue through four successive
evenings. It is needless to Impress upon
the minds of all, the importance of bolng
present at every one of these discussions.
There is u possibility of learning some
thing about tho subjects debated, us well
as performing a duty everyone owes to
u student organization. Our boys have
spent almost tireless energy In studying
the questions for debate, and a series of
lively contests may be anticipated. Re
member thut our debating association Is
purely a student organization, and Is is
carrying on a work that ought to be heart
ily encouraged. Hy giving the debaters
a good audience, they will receive not only
an Inspiration, but be able to present
their trend of thought more clearly and
forcible. Upon the success or these de
bates depends the character of our show
ing in the coming interstate debate. To
take an uctlve part In these discussions
Is no slight honor. H indeed reflects hon
or upon ovory participant to be uble to
champion a question credibly. Heretofore
the students generally havf not realized
the Importunce of these debates und con-
