All previous appointments and pro

will continue on duty with their pres
ent companies as heretofore until Mon
day, the 15th Inst., when the battalion
wui ne sizeu, mviueu mio companies,
and the new assignments announced.
By older commandant of cadets.
While it was known for some time
that the commandant had In contem
plation the formation of t fifth com-
pany, the announcement that there
would be two new companies, coupled
with the fact that two battalions would
be formed, created general surprise,
It is no longer proper to speak of the
body of cadets as the battalion, but
It is now the University of Nebraska
regiment, on account of which Charlie
Weeks and Bob White will be allowed
to sport around with two silver leaves
on their shoulder straps. There will
be no lieutenant colonel, and the com-
mandant will act as colonel in com-
mand of the regiment. There will be
three adjutants, Regimental Adjutant
Plnkerton and Battalion Adjutants
Hitchman and Lyons. However, It is
devoutly hoped that It will not be nee-
essary also to have a band for each
battalion as well as one for the regl-
ment. At any rate. It is safe to say
for the present that such a catastrophe
will not occur. While on tne subject
of the band, It might be well to say
that Drum Major Kring recently stated
that the band was in better shape this
year than In any previous year at this
time of the season. This fact has been
published, as It was feared that many
of the great student body were not
aware of the Importance of this an
nouncement, coming as it does from
Drum Major Kring.
In regard to the formation of n regl-
ment, there Is a division of opinion
anion ho oftileis That manv of them
xunong the cadets. That many of them
must be In favor of the movement is
shown by the long list of promotions
occasioned thereby. But It Is the last
part of tho order which will cause some
personal feeling. That Is, In regard to
sizing up the cadets anew. The cadets
will be arranged according to height,
the tallest in company A, tho smallest
in company F, and the others grading
accordingly. Of course none of the old
companies will retain their Individual
ity, and those who have become at
tached to one company must now
transfer their attachments.
Even the officers, from corporals to
lieutenants, will be assigned to their
companies according to size, and that
is where most of the -discontent and
personal feeling is caused.
For the prccent, therefore, company
spirit is yery high, but it can be de
pended upon to show Itself long before
the time for the annual competitive
drill rolls around. On the whole it is
thought that if the supply of men holds
out till tho end of the year, the estab
lishment of a regiment will prove a
good advertisement for the University.
Besides the promotions already
made, there Is, or will bo very soon, a
vacant captaincy to bo ftlleu, caused
by Phil Husdcll's resignation, which
Is now In the hands of tho command
ant. Phil hns always boon with Com
pany 13, which connection ho would bo
forced to Bover by tho now order of
things. As he intended to leave
at tho end of this semester, ho thought
ho could not do Justice to a now com
pany, nnd for Unit renson resigned.

The telescope Is sixty feet in length,
nnd the lens Is four Inches larger than

WESLEYAN 4, JUNIORS ?..
The junior class team and the Wes-
leyan second eleven played a hot game
on the campus Thursday afternoon,
resulting In a victory for Wesleyan
by the close score of 4 to 2. This Is
a remarkably good showing for the
juniors, who only one week ago were
defeated 22 to 0 by the same team,
The juniors scored a safety In the
first half, but In the second, just about
a minute before time was called, the
juniors fumbled the ball, It rolled be-
hind the goal line and a wesieyan
player fell on It. Wesleyan failed to
kick goal. Score, Wesleyan 4, juniors

The rooting arrangements for to
morrow's game will be practically the
same as last time. There will be four
yelling squads, each under the com
mand of one of the company captains.
It 1b hoped that there will be about
twice as many rooters present as there
were as the Missouri game. If Ne
braska ever needed encouragement it
will need it on the foot ball field with
Kansas to-morrow. Every man who
does not take a lady to tho game is
earnestly requested to get into one of
the rooting squads, buy a speaking
trumpet, tin horn or .cow bell, or In
some other way let his presence be
known. No one will be arrested for
disturbing tho peace and those who
do not yell, if there are any such, may
run the risk of being summoned be
fore the faculty for lack of patriotism
to the University. A meeting of the
squad leaders was held to-day at Ros
coe Pound's office to perfect arrange

tlco Hard During Past Two Weeks
Tho greatest gamo of tho season and
tho ono which will practically decldo
which team wins the pennant will bo
played on tho campus to-morrow aftor
noon between KnnBas and Nebraska.
Tho gamo will bo called sharply at 3
o'clock, so that there will bo no dan
ger of tho gamo being cnllod on ac
count of darkness, ns tho long thlrty-flve-mlnuto
halves mnko tho gnmo
of nbout two hours duration altogether.
Those who aro Intending to bo pres
ent at this game will do well to come
early. At tho Missouri game tho
bleachers were almost filled, and with
good weather to-morrow the crowd
will bo nlmost doubled. Never before
hns anything llko such Interest been
shown as In this game. Not only Is
this true among the students, but even
among tho business men of Lincoln.
Mnny who never saw a foot ball gamo
before are preparing to turn out to
morrow to see the grentcst game over
played in the west. Around the Uni
versity It Is the sole topic of conversa
tion, and Saturday's game Is looked
forward to with pleasure and hope,
mingled with fear.
If hard prac Icing can win a game
Coach Robinson Is determined that it
shall win this one. The la'nt week'B
practice has been the hardest ever ex
perienced by the Varsity team. Every
body Is playing hard and the first team
men have a half a doen. candidates
hustling them for their position. "Dea
con" Klndler has made his appearance
at practice during the past week and
has been playing one of the halves.
He plays hard and swift and will prob
ably be given a chance to go Into tho
Kansas game. All that he now lackB
Is a perfecC knowledge of the signals.
Melford has not made his appearance
slnco the Missouri game, and so it be
came necessary for Oury to get out on
the field again. If Melford does not
show up Oury will undoubtedly play
center. This is a new position for
him, but he fills It well and the team
will be none the loser by the change.
Besides the regulnr afternoon prac
tice, the boys have practiced signals
In the armory after sunper every night
this week. This was found to be nec
essary in order to keep straight In the
minds of the players the exceedingly
large number of plays which are used.
It was by using a great variety of plays
that we beat Tarklo. The same thing
contributed largely to Missouri's down
fall, and if we beat Kansas it will be
by using the same tactics as pursued
In the other games. But Kansas has
no Idea of being beaten. Judging by
their talk, the very Idea that Nebraska
would win or even score or had the
slightest show at all to gain five yards
does not seem to have entered the
heads of tho Kansas players.
The Kansas coach, Wyllc G. Wood
ruff, has published in the papers a
signed statement, guaranteed to be
true, that Kansas has the only team
ever seen In the west; that Kansas
could to-day tie Pennsylvania and de
feat Yale; that there never was or
will be a team like Kansas, and In
cidentally he mentions the fact that
he, as coach, Is responsible for this
wonderful turn of affairs. If all this
Is true, and It may be, while we are
not from Missouri, Kansas has got to
show us. In endeavoring to duplicate
their long end runs made In the Iowa
game, the Kansas men are liable to
strike as snag In the shape of Wiggins
and Stringer. While Kansas 1b engag.
I '"'. ,n . '?r bluster, about the meriU
of her team, Nebraska Is quietly en
gaged In playing foot ball, and is In
fit condition to play the game of her
life. Kansas may come out on top,
but we will still refuse to believe that
she has the most wonderful team on
earth. And then, again, awful to con
template, Kansas may be beaten.
