pleasure at finding the literary societies of the university so
thriving. Such is not the case, said he, in most of our insti
tutions of the standing of our university. His speech was
filled full of fun, and he brought down the house by his ref
erence to Talladiana P. D. Q.
It is believed that the Talladian society has inaagurated a
custom in the university that will be of inestimable benefit in
bringing the students and the alumni into closer relationship

sind assist in devouring sundry canis pies.
Every preparation for the complete enjoyment of the occa

rather proud ol their past history.
Professor Bruncr spoke of "The Boys" in a way which
delighted all present, especially "The Boys."
J. G. Smith, Sem., compared "The World We Live in."

Mr. Woods closed with a few words on "Canis Tic" tn
It would be out of place not to mention a vain, or nearly
-vain, attempt that some hungry seniors made to fake a piece
of cake and a bunch of grapes. The beminar it sorry that
the poor fellows left in such a hurry, one of them leaving a
hnt. Had they remained a little longerwe would have given
them all they wanted to eat with plenty of water to wash it
THE STRONG YOUNG MEN FROM IOWA
TOO GUNNING FOR THE PRIDE OP
THE PRAIRIE STATE.
Nebraska Boys Fought Hard but Were Over
Matched from the Start,
Not in the Score to aa AlarmlHc; Extent, bat
May Work Miracle.
About sixty brazen-throated and braren-flagged enthusi
asts went up to Omaha to witness the Nebraska-Iowa fool
ball game Thanksgiving day. Nebraska was not in the score,
but played well nevertheless very well considering that this
is the first time she has ever played an old-established team.
The game has given the team some excellent practice, and
Nebraska will be in it next time to a very considerable
extent. The great stumbling block was the wedge that Iowa
presented time alter time. "A, B, C, M, N, O, P, Q, X, 247,"
said the quarter back and live yards was the very monotonous
result. It was also very plain that the Iowans were old
hands from their interference. They presented a solid wall
ahead of the man with the ball which rendered tackling well
nigh impossible, though Flippin and Johnston made some
brilliant and unlooked for tackles in the face of it. It was a
much better game than the score might indicate, and the
Uni. has no cause to be ashamed of the score. Considering
that the majority of the team had never heard of tkc wedge
play till a week ago, they handled the A, B, C, N, etc, very
well indeed. Johnston and Flippin certainly played foot ball,
and the whole team played together well in spite oi the num
eious changes its makeup has undergone in the last ten days.
The teams lined up as follows:
Hyde left end rush Bailey.
Stockton left tackle Elliot.
Yont....... left guard Woolston.
Anderson... center rush. Stiles.
Portcrfield right guard . Hull.
Jones. - right tackle Kellenberg.
Skilcs ........right end rush German.
i'lippin left hall back Fernn.
Johnston right halfback..... Pierce.
quarter back. Larrabee.
The professors and students of the engineering depart
ment formed a society Thursday the 19th inst. Interesting
papers were read by B. C. Yatec .and C H. Rohrer reviewing
the current engineering literature- Professor Stout also gaye
a discussion of the London electric subway. The next
meeting will be held two weeks from the first, at which time
interesting and instructive papers will be read. The organi
zation ol the club -will be perfected at this meeting. All
interested in engineering work are cordially invited to attend.

Iowa won the toss and started the ball with a V which
Flippin disintegrated and stopped. They made two yards
around the ft end, though, and started next for the right
end. But Flippin tackled the hall back before he got fairly
to wing. Iowa's quarter back, Mr. Pierce, now remembered
that he was rusty in his A, B, C's, and begau to repeat them
in a contemplative fashion. Nebraska lailed in like manner
to "grasp the situation," and five yards resulted. Then
came three gains of about two yards each with the wedge.
At this point, however, Iowa's full back fumbled and lost
some distance. Nebraska got the ball on the first down. ,
Flippin hit tl-t center without result. While punted well
and alter a fumble ol a difficult catch by some unknown
Iowan, Yont fell on the ball. White failed to gain. Again
White tried the right end wPhout avail. Poor interference
gave Iowa the ball on four downs.
