J THE NEBRASKA v Vol. V. No. 9 THEY LEARNED SOMETHING Ames Football Team Given a Lesson in Tactics. THEY PUT UP A GOOD GAME Some Very Crafty Playing Results In Our Winning n Good Contest They Hud More Beef, Hut Nebras ka Was Tricky. It has long been suspected that Nebras ka's football luck rocs by fits and starts, nd you enn't tell a thins: about what the team Is going to do until they go and do It Yesterday tho suspicion was vorl tti, but tho surprise was a pleasant one. Tou si'C, over In Iowa they havo nn agri cultural college whero they teach tho as piring rustics of tho state how to hoe corn and husk pumpkins. These fellows aren't expected to know how to play foot ball. It takes gentlemen of learning In tclcnco and classics to Handle thnt same, tome think. But they got up a team Just like tho other Institutions this fall and have been swiping everything- In sight. Out of eight games they hn'c won seven. Well, yes terday they camo over to Lincoln and asked Chinccllor MacLcan If h'i boys mightn't como out to M street park and play with them a while. Thoy said they would be easy with the boys and bo the chancellor let 'em go. It whs an awfully cold day and the crowd whs small. But those who did go witnessed the bent gnme of football that has been played In Lincoln this season. The score was, Nebraska 12, Ames 4. Both teams were out on time and gy rated about the field for a while to keep warm. But while they were gyrating Or lle Thorpe and the umpire and Mr. Wil son of Ames were attending to the toss. Orlte announced the fact that the ladies hud always been kind, to him, even since he was a child, and he would pin bis faith to the smiling countentnee of the goddess of liberty. The dollar twirled In the air and when It lit there was the soddess smiling up at Orlle Juxt like the girls do when he comes out of a scrim mace with his hair parted and laying as neatly us If he was going to a Junior "prom," Thorpe chose tho cant goal, for from a hol in that corner of the fence he felt a gentle Nebraska zephyr stealing across the field. At 3:20 by the town clock the farmer kicked off. They seat the ball down the field thirty-two yards nd made Nebraska put It down right there. But Orlle Thorpe liken to kick some himself, so by the a'.d of the zephyr mentioned he sent the ball sixty yards toward Ames pumpkin patch. The furmers didn't play xery well for a minute or two and Nebraska got the ball on downt,. But Ames took It the same way again before much advance was made. Amen played hard now and some Lin coln people opened their eyes and won dered If really these fellows were the invincible which they bad heralded them selves to be. Just then tho bull went to Nebraska on a forward pass and In about two sec onds Nebraska had a touchdown. Tou See Orlle Will IierHltlt In minlln -nil thai "I'liyr encouraged him no that he Just "fled h( pigskin and sent It cWr over the tout h line There -was an Amen man there, but he. acted like a hired man who stands and figures the weight of a sack rn before he lifts It All he did wan 'ouch the bull and put Nebraska men on side, and then Benedict asked time to step aside and allow WlgfcinB to sit on the ball while he tied his shoestring.

Hut tho far mer held the chin of MncLenn, too, nnd some pretty football playing was tho re sult. But tho prettiest thing was tho scoring of Nebraska's second touchdown. In one way or another Nebraska hid worried tho ball down to Amos' thirty-five-yard line. Then Orllo thought ho would kick. Ho did so, giving tho ball n gentlo lift Just over the enemy's line, whllo Wiggins went around the end. Ho got there tho Bamo tlmo the ball did and whllo tho pumpkin buskers looked on In open mouthed amazement ho glided over four white streaks of lime nnd sat down to rest behind tho goal posts. "Well! well! welll" said Robinson, "that was pretty,"' and tho crowd went wild with delight and rushed towurd tho goal. Thcrpo kicked that goal ulso. Score, Ne braska 12, Ames 4. No more scoring was done, but con siderable more playing was und somn very nlco playing. Packard played a fine gamo In tho second half. Repeatedly ho went through the Amen lino for five, sev en and ten yards or more, when in tho first half It seemed to be impervious. It is needless to say Wiggins played well. He always does. Corby did some good tackling, though ho did not advance the ball much. Oury played In the second half and put up something resembling his old game. He enjoyed the work, too. The game was up at 5 and the ball was In the centre of the field. Nebraska was playing great ball and more time would liave meant more scoring for her. Tho smallest crowd that has been at any gamo this year was there yesterday, but they saw the best game that has been played In Lincoln since Kansas was here. last fall. The game was clean and played In a scientific and snappy manner from start to finish. Ames was not In quite so good form as usual and Nebraska was weak In her backs. Tho line-up was: Nebraska. - Ames. Benedict left end Weaver and Weutch.

Manager Oury has determined upon an other game with Wesleyan. which Is to be played Monday at the M street park. Admission will be only twenty-five cents thus enabling everylwdy to attend. The gume was determined upon, to give our team one good practice on offensive work before the Iowa game. As was evident from the Ames game, our offensive work wus most wofully weak. Probably some new tactics will b tried, and a final ef fort made to bring our team to what It should be. Since our last game, WoMey an has been sawing wood, and will un doubtedly give us a harder tussle. As this will give those who cannot afford to go to Omaha a chance to see another game, it Is hoped that a good crowd will attend, considering the low admission fee. A GIFT FROM INDIA. Word has been received from Jeypore, India, that a set of the "Jeypore Port folios of Architectural Details" will soon be presented to the university of Nebras ka on behalf of hiB royal highness, the Maharajah of Jeypore. A limited number of these portfolios are to be given by the king of Jeypore to the public Institutions of the world. Mark Twain, in his lec turing tour through Jndla, noticed the offer of the distribution of these .copies and wrote a letter to the Critic regarding them. Miss Jones, the librarian, read this letter and Immediately applied. The pur pose of the king is to preserve the "noble .and gracious" .architecture of old India, to give it into hunds .capable of enriching newer worlds with it. He feels that the circumstances which created it and made it possible in India have passed away and that there it could not be preserved. These portfolios are a rich .gift to the .architectural world. Don Cameron's lunch counter, 118 South Eleventh street. Tou can get all the- news all the time by Bu.tBcrfblng for The Ttfebraskan.

THE AUDIENCE WAS VERY SLIM The Preliminary Dobntes Are Flimiiv Held Af'.er a Postponoment-Not Much Interest was Manifest ed Which Is Usuul. The llrst of tho series of preliminary de butes was held In the ehnpel Thurs.lnv evening before a small audience. The question wits: Resolved; that a court should be established for the compulsory arbitration of Inbor difficulties. The spenkers on the affirmative were: D. M. Gnrbcr, R. H. Graham nnd E. B. Perry; negative, J. D. Denlson nnd C. M. nnrr. Professors Possler, Wolfe acted ns Judges. Adams and The affirmative wns opened by D. M. Gnrber. who outlined tho Inbor problem of today. He cited the recent Chicago strike ns nn Illustration of the subjugntcd con dition of Inbor. He believed compulsory arbitration to be the only remedy. The first speaker c, the negative J. D. Denlson attempted to show that compul sory arbitration was unconstitutional. "It would take a standing army." he said "to compel labor to submit to a scale of wages fixed by a court of arbitration." R. H. Graham followed. He said that a court of arbitration Is better thnn nn Industrlnl war. He quoted several pas sages of law tending to show that compul sory arbitration is constitutional. C. M. Barr, the next sjenker. admlttel tho deplorable condition of labor. He also agreed with his opponents In that there must be a remedy, and endeavored to show that conciliators arbitration wns much wore preferable to compulsion. He advocated the plan already adopted by some corporations, that of allowing a board of labor representatives to arbi trate with a similar representation of these corporations. E. B. Perry closed the argument by showing that compulsory arbitration would entirely do away with strikes, so deplorable in this country- "Wherever compulsory arbitration has been tried," he said, "it has proved thoroughly suc cessful." The second and third divisions of the debates were held Friday evening. The Judges were on hand early but the audi ence did not materialize very fast. At 8:20. Mr. O. H. Allen, announced the ques tion for the second division: Resolved; that universal manhood suffrage is true in theory and best in practice for a rep resentative government. The speakers on the affirmative were. J. L. Dltmar and D. L. Killen. Mr. F. G. Hawxby repre sented the negative. Mr. Ditmar spent most of his allotted time to giving the definitions of the var ious terms, manhood, suffrage and repre sentative. He had not properly digested his facts so that his debate was rather confused. He failed to make his points clear. Owing to the withdrawal of many from this division, Mr. Hawxby was obliged to uphold his side of the case alone. He has a rapid and lucid utterance and pre sents his facts in good form. If author ities count for anything he could produce mom on his side of the question, such men as Lalor, Thompson, Mill, and Wen dell Phillips were quoted. He agreed with the llrst Jeaker that the tirm manhood embraces woman, but there was yet to ilnd a nation which has intended unlim ited suffrage to woman. It is against the natural development of the household woman should vote. He closed by point ing out the danger from universal suf frage which gives an opportunity for the ignorant men to rule. Mr. Killen then prootJd to show that woman has advanced beyond that stage i which Mr. Hawxby pictured. She is no longer the woman who voluntarily chose the duties of the household hut has de veloped. He then showed that represen tative government is the true one. by historical reference. It it is denied that ever- man ibould vote, then what quuli-J flcations will be necessary? Shall they be physical, moral, property, or educa tional. The idea of woman tiuffrage is growing. Mr. Killen has & good delivery and produced tome good argument. The third division had lor their ques lion: Resolved that the United States government jahould own and operate the railroads within its boundaries. The debaters ware: affirmative; J. A. Maguire, J. R. Burleigh; negative; E. F. NOV. 20. i8q6. Piper, G. E. Hngor nnd G. W. Green. Mr. Mngulro said that tho question meant much for tho present but Inllnltp ly moro for th future. Tho Htnndnrd Oil company controls rates on ono sixth of all tho lines of railway In tho United States. There Is too much discrimina tion mndo In favor of tho corporations. If the government owned the railroads, strikes would cense. There are no strlko In tho post office system. Tho railroads nro In politics to our sorrow. The gov rnnu'nt hns given to them 215 millions of .icres, nnd 1ST. millions of municipal bonds have been voted them. Mr. Mngulro hns a deep resonant voice and presented ar gument In n forclblo mnnner. Mr. Piper followed on the negative. He said wo could not mnko progress with so cialism since thnt would make man nn Infant In thnt It would dictate his every nctlon He compared the railways of Vic toria. Australia with those of Kansas. Tho dinger which would nrlse from Un employment of 870,0no men by the govern ment was dwelt upon. Poorer service would Ve furnished. The argument wns not string nnd convincing, yet It was a good effort. Mr. Brlelgh mndc the point thnt the people paid more money under the private ownershli of railroads and received poorer service. He pointed to the European countries to substantiate his statements, nnd quoted certain authorities In this country. Some of his argument wns "ad homlnem." The efficient- of the Interstate railroad commission, vns Mr. lingers first point for the ownership of railways by the Unit ed States. He also attempted to show that the German railroads wero not ad vancing In the matter of speed nnd com fort. He too, referred to the system In Australia, comparing profits, management and service. Mr. linger has a good ad dress and acquitted himself well. The third sjeaker on the afflrmative, Mr. Green, closed the debate by proceed ing to score the postal system of the Unit ed States. He dwelt on the folly of spend ing six billions of dollars to purchase the railroads, and of having 823,000 govern mental employes, with two millions of persons dependent on them. His speech was rapid and rather flowery for debate, but containing some strong argument. The fourth and last division of debaters was heard Saturday evening. The ques tion wns: Resolved; that the policy of the United States should be to extend its territory. The speakers were: Affirmative; W. O. Ayer. G. E. Tobey and O. W. Meier; negative; G. E. Kindler. F. L. Burt, R. S. Baker and C. L. Shuff. Mr. Burt opened for the affirmative. He argued that the United States had a mor al right to annex territory because inter national law gives evry nation the right of self preservation. Mr. Ayer was self possessed, but he lacked force. Mr. Kindler follower Mr. Ayer. The sjeaker thought it Impossible to legis late for people of different climatic con- ' ditions and social surroundings. He thought the people of Canada did not de mand the same legislation as the people of Mexico. Mr. Kindler was very ani mated. He spoke rapidly. Mr. Tobey next spoke on the affirmative. He held that It had not been wrong to annex territory in the past and would not be in the future. Mr. Tobey spoke from manuscript and held the attention of his audience with difficulty. Mr. Burt of the negative, followed Mr. Tobey. The speaker lold the audience that it would not be wisdom for the United Status to extend its dominion. That it would be absurd jo think of the inhab itants of Braril and Greenland running around with American ballots in their hands. Mr. Burt was very deliberate in delivery. Mr. Meier next ipoko on the affirmative. He wild that he maait merely to defend an established policy of the United States. That new methodi of communication ana inventions have inude it possible for more people, than forneriy. io live under one government- Mr. Meier was fluent and belf posseBMd. Mr. Baker defeided the negative point of view. Mr. Baker thought the question muist be argued from point of expediency and practicality. "If we acquire more 1 territory." ald lhi speaker, "it will mean people under the tame government with different customs and .environment. A na tion fcbould be an e:hlcal as well as a geo graphical unity." Mr. Baker spoke for cibly and eloquently. Mr. Shuff also poke on the negative. Mr. Shuff was at the disadvantage of hav- Ing no one to whom he could reply. He argued that if we extended our territory we must use force. That this meant a (Continued on fourth page.)
