WIN FRO HIGH SCHOOL.
Game Saturday Troves Hard For
University Men Weak Points
The first game of foot ball for the
'99 university team took placo on the
university grounds Friday, September
The game was between the Lincoln
high school team and a mixed eleven
of the first and second team of the
university, which ended in a victory
for the university, the score being G
Tho game started by a "kick-off"
from the high school and during the
greater part of the first half the ball
was carried scarcely twenty-five yards
During the latter part the university
succeeded, by successive center rushes,
in gaining ground until a touch down
was made by Williams just as time for
tho first half was called.
After time was called a goal was
kicked by Ringer. The last half was
played with a new line-up by the uni
versity, but neither side succeeded in
The h.'gh school played a steady
game throughout. The men played to
gether and made several good gains
by end runs. The" -"university eleven

bles and thoughtless plays occurred
throughout tho game.
The game as a whole was of little
benefit to either side except as a cri
terion as to future playing. Upon the
whole, tho students of the university
had little reason to feel encouraged.
Several times they proved to be . ex
tremely weak, especially in the center
of the lino. The absence of Stringer,
Bencd'ct, Carver and Tyson from tho
game weakened the playing of the men
The high school boys played well to
gether. Raymond, Eager and Shedd
carried off the major portion of tho
honors. "With a little more develop
ment and steady practice there should
be no doubt as to the outcome of the
high school game with Omaha, -which
is to be played In a short time.
The univers.ty team will necessarily
need a great deal of development be
fore the game with Ames the latter
part of this week. The Ames team has
been in training for the past two
months and is now in the pink of con
dition. With this they have tho ad
vantage of their home grounds, thus
giving thom a very good chance tt add
another' victory to those already gained
over the university.

Now that tho second edition of
"Corn Tassels" Is about to appear, it is
well to know how tho former ono was
received. Among tho favorable com
ments that was received at the time
was tho following from tho Woman's
'tribune of Washington, D. C:
"The dedication of this little volume
of poems gives the keynote to the book,
'To '.ho state I love, Nebraska, and to
her people.' It is fairly redolent of tho
breath of the prairies and the corn
fields, whose distant horizon leads tho
thought out to tho inflnlto as does the
sea. The bright young face of the poet
appears as tho frontispiece. Mr.. Dun
roy is proud to bo known as a Ne
braskan, whose Inspirattton is the di
roct outgrowth of its fields and skies,

"The first poem, 'Nebrasky,' pic
tures the level land, the broad, flat
rivers, tho bluest sky, the loving winds,
the fields of 'emerald bladcd corn that
swishes In the breeze, the little clumps
of supple wilier trees,' that .make 'Ne
brasky. "And this is not all that our poot
finds to inspire his muse. There are
tho prairie night, the lullaby of the
corn, tho dawn, the grasses waving in
stormless tides, tho flower which 'The
sun has photographed upon the' field, a
myriad golden pictures of his face;'
the river 'with shifting isles of shal
low sand,' which made it seem 'like a
silver ribbon blotched with gold;' tho
prairie view where tho boundless
levels lie 'beyond the aching eye's deep
straining, and then farther still tho
floor which meets the bonding sky;"
tho amber autumnal robes; these and
tho wind and flowers and bird songs
are the rich material for our poet's

he limited himself to these; there are
homely poems of life, of love and ot
heroism, all showing a poetic sense
and an appreciation of the good and
