you know, but she has como raoro than half
way this time and wo will "whip urn' or
oat crow. If you can't go, get the score
from TnK Hesperian bulletin board at
about 6:30 o'clock, and be ready to "jub
ilate." The per8oncl of the team has changed
somewhat since the opening of the season.
Of course when a man takes a certain place
for a game or two at the beginning of the
season it does not signify that he is destined
to hold that position forever. Every week
of practical work gives the coach and cap
tain a better idea of the man for the posi
tion, and changes must be expected at any
Shedd, who started at tackle, has appar
ently found a better "fit" at half. Hany
Jones has had hardly the amount of experi
ence a half needs, and will probably eub in
the coming games with .Missouri and Kan
sas, but he has speed aud grit enough to
keep him in the game.
Spooner has at last donned the shin-guard
and moleskins and is putting up his old game
at quarter, and tackling with his usual skill.
His coming out drove Thorp and Packard
from their contest over the place, but both,
though light men, had the nerve and "headi
iirrr'" to catch on at the ends.
King has been playing his place at half
with ease, but if he finds it impossible to
continue, Wiggins is in shape to carry the
ball from behind the line, though he is needed
at his old end.
The change at center will perhaps be most
noticed. Keller was a new man, and con
sidering, filled the place fairly well; but the
position is a hard one to fill at first, aud
demonde a man of experience. The old
high school center, Milford, has been out
this week, and "stands up"" to the line in
good shape. Keller is a good willing man,
and would go a long ways towards filling a
gap at guard should Wilson or Jones get
Dungan has apparently gotten a good
grip at tackle, and is showing his training
perhaps better than any other man on the
Shue has been oil coaching the Falls City
team since his return from Denver, but
came back according to agreement last
Monday night and reported for practice.
He found a now man in his position, how
ever, and when the line-up was made he was
not called into the game. Of course the
management does not have to explain all
these things to the audience, yet when one
is watching the building up of a team, these
questions of why and wherefore insist on
Cameron has been pushed about rather
promisciously too, so it seems to a bystander,
yet he ip one of the first men on the grounds
every night, and good-naturedly plays center
or quarter as occasion demands. A man
should not, in ideal working of affairs, be
compelled to learn every position before be
ing allowed at least half a chance at the posi
tion for which he is trying.
They Kept It Stilt.
When Thk Hksi'kkian was sounding its
peals of merry wedding bells, it had no in
tention to ommit anyone. That this was
done is owing entirely to the reticence of
Mr. Hinds wc at this late date make
amends for our neglect.
It was early in June that Mr. Chas. N.
Hinds and Miss Josephine Walker became
one. Our surprise will not prevent our
hearl felt congratulations. Mr. Hinds who
is now posting in American History, was an
active and popular member of the class of
'95. Last year's cadets will remember him
as first Lieut. Hinds of company B.
when she devoted most of her time to
music. She is au estimable young lady and
all her acquaintances will join with us in
extending their best wishes.
Mr. and Mrs. Hinds are both from Odell,
Gage County, Nebraska. They are now
keeping house at 454 north 16tb street,
while Mr. Hinds pursues his history work
