The btudenis had the rare j v-asure
last Wednesday morning of listening
to short addresses by three old time
setikTh of Nebraska who have helped
make this state what it is today Ex-Serrr-uir
of Agriculture J. Sterling
Morton, Kx- Governor Furnas and Dr.
George L Miller.
tx-(jo(-ri)ur Furans was the first to
extend a word of greeting to the stu
dus He bald, believing us he did,
that education more than anything
else, eeatod mankind, he had always
taken a great interest in this insti
tution 'I in speaker said that he had
the honor of being a member of the

heii th- students could all have been
seated on the chapel platform. The
j'ght of u,e Chapei packed with btu
entB, he said, could not help but give
him inn-nast d confidence in the future
of the l Diversity.
J- Sterling Morton was next Intro
duced. Iff. advised the students to be

Dr. Mlllor was tho last spcakor. While
ho, unllko Governor Furnas, had never
had any connection with this educa
tional Institution, ho said ho had, in
his capacity as a Journalist, endeavor
ed to cducao tho people to tho Impor
tance of such an education as a univer
sity affords. Personally, ho Bnid, ho
know nothing about tho mothodB of
education as ho had never seen tho in

tion when ho was a youth.
Tho Bpoaker corrected himself for
saying that ho had had no connection
with our University. Ho was respon
sible to a largo dogroo for tho Unlvor
slty being able to bring Dr. Dcssoy

himself. In conclusion Dr. Miller de
sired to Impress on tho students that

YOUNG WOMEN'S BASKET BALL
At a meeting of tho basket ball play
ers held last week. Miss Louise Pound
was elected captain of the girls 'var
sity team, with power to push her
"men" and organize both 'varsity and
substitute teams. On Wednesday Miss
Pound announced the names of those
fortunnte enough to secure places on
the teams. The first team will con
sist of Misses Welch, DuToll, Alberta,
Spurck, Cooke, Beach or Kennedy,
Pound and Miss Rose Long, as till
around player for the first team, with
title of captain of the second team.
Tho second team consists of Missel,
Miller, Daisy Bonncll, Fritch, Demp
ster, Beach or Kennedy, Miss Long as
center and captain. With one excep
tion, all these on the first team are
experienced players. The second team
will be in many respects quite ns
strong as the first team especially in
goal throwing. Many of them on ac
count of size could not make the llrdi
team. Until the tirst team have had
more practice at goal throwing, the
second are likely to push them hard
when lt comes to scoring. With the
enthusiasm with which Miss Pound
has already inspired her girls and with
the advantage of her superior coaching
they promise soon to becme invincible.
No young women are allowed on either
teams, nor are they allowed to play
basket ball at all until they have had
at least one year's training in the
regular gymnasium classes. Most of
the players on the teams have had two
and some four years gymnasium work,
which has so hardened their muscles as
to make them proof against the ordi
nary bumps which they are likely to
receive while playing the game.
Several out-of-town teams have al
ready signified their desire to play the
Nebraska girls as soon as the girls have
had more practice and arrangements
can be made, match game will be
played in the armory with a team from
Omaha. Nebraska young women aro
keeping pace with the young women
in eastern universities in the way of
athletic games. This year it seems to
be quite the thing for the young wom
en of those more conservative eastern
institutions to have Inter-colleglatc
games, and Nebraska will not be left
in the rear wlien It comes to athle
tic sports. Ijisi year one of the first
match games played between young
women of different colleges was that of
the New Haven young women vs.
Harvard annex young women. The
game was played in the Harvard gym
nasium and was one of the most suc
cesbful social, as well as athletic events
of the season. After conservative old
Harvard had opened her sacred portals
to her athletic young women, other
colleges soon followed.
The game of basket ball between the
champion University team and the
Lincoln Y. M. C. A. team was the first
of the season's games played with an
The game was Interesting from the
(liht and the crowd did not lack In
plenty of enthusiasm. But tho strong
voices of the crowd of boys that cov
ered the ladders on the west of the
gymnasium were not able to make up
for the team.
Referee Stebblns threw the ball up ,
in the center of the field and the
scramble began. The university team
at first seemed to have tilings their
way and in a few minutes Story sent
the ball through tho cast goal. At
this point both teams began to play

A WORTHY CAUSE.
There Is in the world today a body
of young men and women known as
student volunteers numbering thou
sands. These are students who have
offered their services as missionaries
of Christ's teachings. They represent
all of the greater and many of the les
sor Institutions of learning. The Uni
versity of Nebraska, likewise has its
band of student volunteers. In Febru
arj there Is to be held in Cleveland
a convention of these volunteerse. At
Inst year's convention our university
was represented by six delegates. We
should do at least as well this year.
It will require in the neighborhood of
$100 to accomplish this. Respond lib
erally to tho solicitors. May we not
rely on the generosity and Interest of
eacli one of you to raise this fund?
