Important Heeting Held in Chapel for the Purpose
of Putting Athletics Upon a
Sound Basis.

Elected by the Student Body Important Reforms.
On List Saturday morning' the Ath
ctic ,i .ociution of the University of
Xcbra: l..i became a thing of the past.
For soic-al years the affairs of the
asso'iatiKii hove bi.-onie more and
mor' tangled until It seemed that u! e
best thing to bo done was to dissolve
it. Tlio departments of athletics lisiv
heretofore been run independent, of
each her, each having a sejKirute
manncrr and trcastirer, who wn in no
wn responsible for the condition of
affair-" except as lie feM dis-nosed to
make a roKrt to the atihletie board.
There has 1hcu much dissatisfaction
willi i he way tlringa have liecn con
ducted, but nothing definite wis talk
ed of until this year. The aMnchment
of tin- gate receipts of the Iowa Ne
br.iK.i foot ball jjami' at Council
muffs lust year was a surprise to all
aid has acted as an eye-opener to
those interested in the affairs of the
association. T5y a comparison with the
eastern colleges it was found that the
t'nivrMty was far liehind the times
and plans were set on foot to put the
finances of the athletics on a firm ba
sis ard brinjr the stnnrtanl oT our
school up to what it should be.

The score, 70 to 0, tells a long story
of its own. Our boys chased up and
down the field in a inanmer that made
the spectators feel sorry for their
respiratory apparatus. From the very
first they' kept scampering' back and
forth between Center and the enemy's
gen'.. Not even after they had the
game fast in their grasp did they stop
it. This caused u kick from the live
yard line. Garrett fumbled. Nebras

Williams and Kingsbury sent it across
the line.

Tiie second half was merely a rejie

nice. Nebraska kicked off. Hastings,
gained a few yards by end ph'.ys and

baM again airtl they proceeded to make
good use of it. Uy a scries of end runs
and confer rusluis, it was carried down

After tlliis touch downs were made by
Kingxbury (:). IMHirtiury, Williams
and Stringer. Then in order to clo.-e
the game in gooil style and to show
Hastings that we had no Ill-feelings
toward I hem, Cowg-ill made another
place kick from the field. This ended
the first game of the season on the
home grounds. The score had reached
the enormous figures of 700, the
