The entertainment given by the University
Dramatic club on Saturday evening, the ioth,
was highly appreciated by those who attended.
The effort was a most successful one, and merited
the patronage of every student in the University.
Especial notice should be made of the excellent
work of Misses Pound and Cather.
Chas. Hinds did not wear his new overcoat
home from the club house the other evening. It
was appropriated from the hallway presumably by
one of the many sneak thieves who are at present
infesting our city. At this period of the year
gentlemen wearing valuable overcoats should take
are that they are always hanging in sight when
not otherwise in use.
The following named business men each gave
five dollars for the benefit of the foot-ball team.
C. W, Mosher, W. S. Harwood, J. W. NcDonald,
J. D. McFarland, R. S. Moore and J. H. Harley.
This shows that the people of Lincoln are begin
ing to take some interest in our institution. We
take this opportunity of publicly thanking them
for their gift.
The following program was rendered in the
Palladian hall last Friday evening. This was a
slight departure from the regular program, but is
a departure that has a tendency to link the society
closer to the past and furnishes an incentive for
future work :
Prof. Caldwell College Politics."
" A Striking Reminiscence of College Life."
Prof. Fossler .... " Leaves from a Palladian's Diary."
S. S. English " Palladian Programs in the 'So's."
Congressman D. H Mercer. ."APalladian in Politics.'
At the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Curtis, 925
C street, Lincoln, Tuesday evening, Dec. 12,
1892, Miss Hattie M. Curtis to Mr. Frederick
Shepherd. The ceremony was performed by
Rev. Lewis Gregory of the First Congregational
church. Both of the contracting parties are
former students of the University and are well
known in Lincoln. Mr. Shepherd after leaving
the University studied law in this city and is now
practicing in partnership with Hugh Lamaster of
the Class of '90. Miss Curtis is librarian of the
public library, in which position she has made a
host of friends. A number of relatives and friends
were in attendance at the wedding, and following
the ceremony an informal reception was held in
which toasts and musical selections were the
principal features. The young couple are to re
main in Lincoln, Mr. Shepard continuing the
Practice of his profession, the bride resuming her
duties a librarian. The Hesperian joins in
tendering congratulations and good wishes.'
Financially speaking the thanksgiving game at
Umaha was a failure. The weather was very dis
agreeable aud but a small crowd turned out to see
the game, but those who witnessed the game cer
tainly were satisfied. This was the only game in
the League that resulted in a tie. But according
to the constitution the game will be given'to us,
because in case of a tie the game is given to the
team that has won the most league games. The
game as a whole was very satisfactory, each side
making two touch downs and each failing'at goal
once. Good playing was done by both" teams,
but space forbids the mention of the details of the
The standing of the teams is as follows:

Kansas 320 1000
Nebraska 3 2 1 667
Missouri 312 333
Iowa 303 000
Missouri forfeited the Missouri-Nebraska game.
Quarter-back Pace has been elected Captain of
the foot-ball team for next year. No better choice
could have been made, and we now announce
that next year we are going after the pennant.
"Little Pace" has played with the team for two
seasons, and in every game he has always been
where he was most needed. If we get a good
coach for next year our team under the energetic
and enthusiastic guidance of Mr. Pace will surely
win. This year Captain Johnston has done far
more for the team than is accredited to him. He
took a comparitively green team and by his own
instruction made them what they were.
A lazy man aims at nothing, and he generally
Hoagland insists that he will not buy rubbers
for any girl, no matter how slippery the ice may
be. Well, that's .all right, Tusey; there is still
some gallantry in the American youth. It's a steep
grade down from the Episcopal college.
The worse case of illness that we have to report
is that of Mr. Lehmer, who is suffering severely
with a " case " of tanned leather grip. It is
hoped that the disease is not contagious, and that
the sack may not become general.
At the meeting of the Hesperian association
held Saturday evening, the 17th inst., it was de
cided to sell the small type which the association
owns. It is a wise move in the right direction;
that small type has always been an abominable
nuisance. Since the paper has been printed
down town, the Hesperian has presented a
much better appearance-
The Sophomores elected the following officers
Vice President Kimball.
Secretary Miss Bridge.
