Opening of Mechanic Arts Building, Addresses by
Governor Holcomb, the Chancellor, Professor
Brooks and Others.
Some New Books That Have Been Placed in the Library Since
the Beginning of the Year.
Tomorrow, Friday, October 28, will
bo 11 red lutitor day in the history of
the University of Nebraska. A now
building- on the cam pun Is to be dedi
cated with appropriate ceremonies A
holiday has been grunted by the fac
ulty, and if all present indications
prove true the University grounds will
bo thronged from morning till light
with enthusiastic students.
If ever there was a chance for the
love of alma mater to show itself, it
will bo tomorrow when a new hall
takes its share of the University life.
The committee of arrangements of
the faculty has had the program of the
day's exercises in charge and have
prepared suitable ceremonies, hls
committee consists of the chancellor
Profs. Bessey Brooks, Richards and
Chatburn. Tiie.v have been tireless,
putting forth nil their energies to
make the day a success, and their ef
forts bid fair to be crowned with com
plete success.
The distribution of tickets for the
exercises will be by the faculty
through the committee. They will be
given out at the- executive oillce on
Thursday, everybody being treated
the same, no favoritism bclny thowu.
The selection or l'rot. Morgan
Brooks to deliver the inugurnl ad
drctes is particularly appropriate. Ho
probably has more interest in the new
building than any one professor. The
students heard Air. Brooks for nlout
two minutes in chapel one morning,
and the impression lie left with them
should cause the chapel to be tilled at
ten o'clock.
The exercises in the nuornoon will
be at the armory ami in Mechanics'
Hall. The cadet band, which in al
ready gaining an enviable reputation
in the state, will play on the campus.
There has been a stage erected in the
armory and u number of seats are in
readiness. The exercises here will be
breif as for the program, which
the guests will march in procession
to the street entrance of the new
building, going by the way of the
south side of the armory and driveway
into T street.
The unveiling of thetnblet which is
n beautiful piece of mottled marble,
will take place at the front of the main
stairway and will be done by Governor
Holcomb, with a short address.
Then will follow an inspection of the
building, and receptions by the differ
ent departments. The school of do
mestic science will serve light refresh
ments nt the expense of the depart
ments to be located in the new build
ing. Those serving will be dressed In
scnrlet and cream.
In the evening the exercises will
be at the Oliver and admission by
ticket, President Cliiiplnin of Wash
ington 'Jniversity, St. Louis, will make
the chief address. The choice is par
ticularly fitting as he is himself a civil
engineer, being professor of the sub
1ect nt Harvard when he was called to
Washington University. It was
through Ids efforts that a school of
manual training was established in
Washington University, this being the
first school of the knd in America.
The subject of his address tomorrow
night will be "The Educational De
velopment of the United States." Pres.
ident Chaplain is a direct, pungent
spentter and will in tho opinion of the
chancellor deliver an nble oration.

utes had expired they had crossed the
Nubriisknu line, lolbon did unusually
brilliant work and seemed to be fill
ing every position. Ho took the ball
during a scrimmage and with fine in
terference succeeded In getting near
the goal line of his opponents before
he was downed. McCaslin carried
ball over the line and placed it
squarely between the goal posts. Tol
son kicked his goal and gave the Tig
ers 0 to Nebraska's 0. The Missourl-
ans won; on an pinys was lust unu
their onslaught on the champions' line
was ell'ectual and brought good1 cuius.
After the Tigers bad made the only
score which was to be theirs, tho Ne
braska men tci: a determined stand
and played a most terrific game, In
which the Mlssourlans -were but foils
for 'them. The work of the backs was
fast and heady and the line intcrfer-
forced holes in Missouri's' lino through
which the entire team plunged and
every man on the Nebraska eleven put
' up a wonderfully fast game.
I The first kick after the Tigers had
I scored put the 'ball on the 3-yard line,
wnere aiossuuiii goi it aim puutcr it
back 35 yards. Nebraska took the ball
forward slowly but regularly, and
llenedict scored a touch down, which
Mel ford failed to kick, and the score
i to f in favor of Missouri,
The Tigers tried to punt from the
center, but Nebraska soon made a re
turn punt to (he Missouri 3-yard line.
The Tigers rallied, and were moving
slowly toward the Nebraska goal,
when Kingsbury made a splendid run,
nearly to the Tiger's line, and Erwln
can-led it over. Melford made his
kick. Score, 11 to 0.
The Columbian team lost heart, and
the visitors had everything their own
way. Their rushes were poorly met,
and yard after vard was gained. PIl.s
bury and Kingsbury were good ground
gainers, and Benedict's work was phe
nomenal. He crashed through the line,
and rounded the ends for repented
gains. Melford, who missed his first
goal, made up for it by landing seven
others between the poles. The score
stood 23 to 0 nt the end of the first
The lntter part of the game, like the
last 25 minutes of the first half, was
one-sided. Tolson, Harris and Dunn
had done good work in. the first part,
but Dunn retired In favor of Liggett,
who made a brilliant run nround leu
end, but the Tigers were unable to
send tic ball over the line. The Ne
brasknns scored with discouraging
regularity, and tho score stood 47 to
0 when time relieved the Tigers,

What the St. Louis Republic had to
say of the game:
The Tigers, of Missouri University,
met their Waterloo here today. Ne
braska Cniversllv hiMit t.lw.m U !,
overwhelming score of -17 to 0, 'much
to the astonishment of the Tigers, who
after their recent victory over the
Kansas City medics, had begun to
think that they would never know en
other defeat this season. Good weath

The Tigers opened like winners,' and

son at once came Into prominence. Ho
seemed to be everywhere at all times,
and looked as If he was trying to play
the whole game for the 'Tifers. He
emerged with the ball from a sharp
scrimmage in -the center of the field,
and, aided by splendid interference, it
was soon near the Nebraska goal. In
less than six minutes the Tigers, by a
punt I'roni Mossnian and a run by Me
Cnslin, had put the bull over the Ne
braska line, MeCaslln planting it
squarely between the g-onl posts. Tol
son kicked goal, making the score fl to
0 In favor of the Tigers.
.Nelu-nskn then got mad, and began
(o astonish the spectators. They put
the ball on the Missouri 3-yard line
with one kick. Mossnian saved the
Missouri goal by a punt of 30 yards.
Nebraska took the ball down field,
slowly lighting furiously, and break
ing the Missouri line at every plunge.
Mencdict finally took the ball over the
Missouri line for a touchdown, and
Melford missed the goal. Missouri
punted from the center and made a
small gain. Nebraska returned the
punt, and the bnll was stoived on Mis
souri's 3-yard line. Missouri slowly
fought their way toward the Nebraska
goal, and their chances were good for
another touchdown, when Kingsbury,
by a splendid run, took the ball to
within (i yards of the Missouri line.
Erwln next carried It over for a touch
down, and Melford kicked goal.
At this point Missouri apparently
saw her finish, and began to let down.
Nebraska played ningniflcantly. Their
work was considered by many to be
the best ever seen in Columbia'. Bene
dict, of Nebraska, played like a fiend,
mid was undoubtedly their most valu
able man. After Ervin hud made a
third touchdown tor Nebraska, the
Tigers seemed to go all to pieces. Ne
braska made steady gains, and the
home eleven seemed powerless to sitop
"Oak" Hunter, the big Tiger, did
good work, but at times seemed de
moralized and dazed by the terrific
game of the Nebraska boys.
The fifth touchdown for Nebmskn,
made by Stienger gnve opportunity
for the neatest goal kick over seen
here. The touchdown enlled for a kick
out, and Melford sent the ball square
ly over the goal posts, under the cir
cumstances n very difficult feat Af
ter the sixth touchdown for Nebraska
the Tigers seemed 1o even abandon
hope of holding down the score, nnd
the visiting eleven piled up score after
score with astonishing ease and confi
dence. The second half was even more hu
miliating to the University boys tlmn
the first and when time wnc called the
score stood 47 to 0 ngainst them, tho
largest score and most crushing defeat
over seen in Columbia. Nebraska un
