ready Brilliant Records.
Boulder, Col., Nov. 17. One of the
hardest fought games over seen on a
Boulder gridiron was played between
the elevens of tiho Statu University of
Colorado and tho Nebrnskas today.
Tho score was 23 to 10 in favor of the
latter. Tho game was a good nu
tured contest from bgelnning to end
free from slugging- and fights. The
University of Colorado played its
strongest game this year and proudly
boasts of the largest score that has
been made on Nebraska 'by any team
this season. A rather strong, eold
wind from the west did not prevent
the Bouldor enthusiasts from, attend
ing in force and from 2 o'cloek, when
the business houses ot thu city closed
their doors, to 2:45, when time was
called, there was ono continuous
stream of humanity from the city to
(iambic flelld.
The visitors practically outclassed
the 'home team in weight. The men
in the line averaging over 20 pounds
more to the man. During over hair
the game, however, tho weight did not
seem to avail and Boulder went,
through the line at will. A strong
wind at their backs and .a slight
slope in the field of the Co'.oradoans
a slight advantage in the first ihalf,
nn ndvnntge which, added to their su
perior weight gave the visitors the
game In the second half.
Boulder won the toss jmd took the
west goal with the wind at their backs
and gave the Nebrnskans the kick olT.
Swcnters were pulled at 2:45 and the
teams lined up ns follows:
Merton 'hit tackles for gains of two
yards each and then Rogers wns
pushed over the line for a touchdown.
Chase missed an easy goal. Score,
Nebraska 0, Colorado 5.

ran from tho live to the twenty-five

Ph Gam ma Delta Starts a Chapter Here in Lin
coln With Very Bright
Recommendations of the Board of Visitors For Some Changes at
Annapolis naval Academy.
The chapter of Phi Gamma Dolt.i,
which has been long expected by the
other fraternities of the University,
was established last Friday night. The
boys of tho new chapter have worked
hard for about two years to secure
tneir dinner, and tneir success is a
natural result. The Installation ccw
moulcs were conduoted by Clement A.
Lnwier or Kansas City, a "Fiji" rfom
Cornell; rrofessor T. L. Lyons, also
from Cornell; G. W. Burton of New
York city, from DePauw; R. E. Moore,
from Illinois Wesleyan; A. II. Slfeldon,
from Knox, and C. L. Sovereign, for
Wisconsin. They were assisted in the
ceremonies of initiation by Van Valin
and Harvey, who went for the boys
to the recent nnd, by the way, semi
centennial convention of the fratern
ity nt Pittsburg, mid who were initi
ated there.
The charter members of the new
chapter are:
L. C. Mudge. A. 11. Sheldon, A. C.
Pancoost, C. E. Harbor, E. It. Harvey,
F. Van Valin, C. II. Mudge, E. A. Hose,
chapters became extinct. The chap
ters at Gettysburg and Allegheny had
almost their entire nieinbeiship In
either army. Almost all of the old
chapters hae since been revived, and
Phi Gamma Delta is now one of the
strong, hnvlng forty-five active chap
ters. These are scuttcrcd principally
through the east and south, the Ne
braska chapter being as yet the most
Among the prominent alumni may
be mentioned: Senatois Vance and
Fairbanks, President, Moffat of Wash
ington nnd Jefferson college nnd Coul
ter of Lake Forest, and John Clark
ltldpath, General Lew Wuiiuco and
David D. Lloyd among authors.
Tho installation of a new "frat" gen
erally calls forth more or less criti
cism. Many look with some opposi
tion upon any new chapter since It
means another rival. But little has
beon said derogatory to the new chap
ter, the Phi Gamma Delta, probably
for the reason that there is little
ground for criticism. It is conceded
that the Phi Gamma Delta Is nation
ally a credit to any institution and
that the local chapter is made up of
a set of good able fellows who will
maintain the Ideals of their fratern-ity.

Princeton goal This time it was suc
cessful. The final score, Nebraska 23,
Boulder 10.
A few more plays brought the ball

possession, when time was called.
