Professor and Mrs. Candy enter
tained the Graduate club Saturday
evening, October 14, about forty mem
bers being present Dean and Mrs.
Edgren assisted in receiving and Mrs.
Moritz, Mrs. Davison, Mrs. Reed, Miss
Wheeler, Miss Grace Wheeler and Miss
Bertha Quaintance helped serve.
Professor Candy and Dean Edgren
made short talks, suggesting new plans
for the graduate club as an organiza
tion. President Candy proposes to
make the club a success this year if
the graduate students will only co
operate, but he is not Inclined to work
for people who do not want his help.
Those present who wished to be noti
fied of future meetings were asked to
register with the president and those
not present are to be given the same
chance, as membership in the graduate
club is optional. It is expected that
holding the meetings at the homes of
members of the faculty will make these
affairs pleasanter than those of last
year, which were in university rooms.
A "small contribution was asked from
each member to defray expenses of
these meetings. Dean Edgren spoke
encouragingly of the growth of the
eraduate school and thought it was
time to be known to the world through
some publication. As a title for this
he suggested "Investigations of the
Graduate School of the University of
Nebraska," and the theses of doctors
or masters would be the proper mate
rial. This subject is to be dlscuBBed
further at the next meeting of the
After these talks refreshments were
served and a social time enjoyed. The
rooms were prettily decorated in the
university ecarlot and cream and the
sherbet glasoes were uniquely im
bedded in gay flowers of the same
WIh Fhhh Nebraska in Hard Fought
Contest m CampHB Saturday
Missouri university foot ball eleven
defeated the University of Nebraska
Saturday by a score of 11 to 0. The
game was a battle of strength until the
last, when time was called with the
ball within two feet of the Missouri
goal. The final brace was due to a
thirty-yard run and a well placed kick,
both by Benedict With one minute
more Nebraska would have avoided a
Many Nebraska students have looked
forward to this game for weeks, yet
the attendance was disappointing in
the extreme. The enthusiastic persons
present were scattered about the field
in a way that prevented them from
being of any actual service to the play
ers during the game. The day was
much too warm to be good for foot ball.
The heat with a heavy wind from the
southwest that sent cloud after cloud
of dust flying across the gridiron,
made life very burdensome to all who
did come out
Enthusiasm was considerably below
par. None of the old-time tally-ho par
ties, or the gayly decorated boxes, oc
cupied by the fairer sex, were seen.
Nothing characterized the gathering
save a few megaphones. These were
used with so little advantage that they
were of absolutely no service.
At 3:06 the Missouri team came on
the field. The red and gold sweaters
were worn by men of medium height
well proportioned, who looked to be in
fit condition for a hard game. Six
minutes later the Nebraska men were
on the field.
There was no delay. Missouri won
the toBS and Captain Kramer chose the
south goal, with the wind on the backs
of the Missouri men. The referee blew
the whistle at 3:15. Benedict for Ne
braska kicked off, but the ball went out
of bounds. Benedict kicked again. The
ball went to the twenty-flve-yard line
of Missouri, who brought it back five
yards. Missouri commenced by send
ing her tackles through the line. They
made eight yards. The right half
made two yards. It was not fast
enough for the men from Missouri and
they tried a double pass for a gain of
eighteen yards, Koehler making a neat
tackle for Nebraska, stopping them
finally. West and Kruse made two
yards each through the line. Bohort
started around Nebraska's left end and
fumbled, but a Missouri man fell on
the ball with a gain of fifteen yards.
Washer made five more through the
line. West and Kruse made good gains.
Seven minutes after play commenced
McCaslin carried the ball over for a
touchdown. McCaslin kicked goal.
The ball went back to the center of
the field and Benedict kicked off to the
ten-yard line. Drain and Pearse
dropped the man on the spot Missouri
sent their men through the lines for
short gains, but were finally forced to
kick, Thurman sending the ball to
Nebraska's twenty-flve-yard line. Ben
edict carried it back five yards. It was
Nebraska's ball and Benedict made
three yards and Carver four yards

through the line. Benedict tried to
punt, hut the hall was blocked. A Ne
braska man fell on it Here the -university
men started in to play .steady
ball. Benedict, Carver, Westover,
Pearse and Crandall made fair gains
through the line for twenty yards,
Pearse getting away once for twelve.
They were finally forced to kick and
Tukey dropped on the ball. Nebraska
backs and Westover were sent Into the
line again. For a few plays they
gained and then the ball went to Mis
souri on downs.
ThuYman began the work with five
yards through left half. Washer and
Kruse kept up the gait Here West
over was hurt in a mass play and Wal
lace was substituted.
Missouri started well again, but the
ball soon went to Nebraska on downs.
The ball changed hands again on
downs, only to go back a few minutes
later to Nebraska.
Missouri soon had the ball again and
by steady work soon pushed Hartsong
over for the second touchdown.' Mc
CasliR failed to kick goal.
Benedict again kicked off to the
twenty-yard line. Missouri slowly
started the ball down the field anil
when time was called the sphere was
In the center of tne field. Score, 11 to
0 In favor of Missouri.
The second half began at 4:26. Mis
souri kicked to Nebraska's thlrty-flve-yard
line. Benedict caught the ball
and made five yards, when he was com
pelled to kick, returning it to Mis
souri's forty-flve-yard line. Nebraska
took the ball on downs. Carver went
through the line for eight yards, Bene
dict followed for three a- Pearse went
through l-;t guard an$ tackle for four
yards. Benedict made - two more
through the line. On the next play
Tukey fumbled and a Missouri man got
possession of the ball. Koehler made a
good tackle on the following play be
fore Missouri had advanced the ball
more than a yard. Missouri then made
eight yards in the next four plays. On
the last play Cooper got injured and
Goodson was substituted. Missouri
played fast from now on, gaining nine
teen yards in the following seven plays.
The ball was quite a distance in the
Nebraska territory by this time, so
the men got down to hard work and
kept Missouri from gaining on the
next attempt Ringer stopped the fol
lowing play by a beautiful tackle.
Thurman was injured in this pfey ad
Peeper took his place. Wallace tackled
the man hard in the following play,
forcing the ball back four yards. The
Missouri fullback then punted, but
Pearse succeeded in blocking the ball.
A Missouri man, however, fell on it
In their next few line-ups they failed
to gain, which necessitated a kick. Ne
braska got the ball and gained but a
few yards. The signal was given for a
kick and Benedict sent the ball thirty
3'ards. Missouri lost the ball on downs
on the fourth play. Nebraska made
but one yard in two attempts, when
Benedict punted. A Missouri man
caught the ball and made a touchback.
The ball was then taken to the twenty-flve-yard
line, where Missouri kicked
to Nebraska's forty-flve-yard line.
Drain caught it and carried it back
fifteen yards. Soon Pearse with good
team work went through the oppon
ents' line for twenty-four yards.
In a few minutes the ball went from
Nebraska to Missouri and then back to
Nebraska on downs. Then lacking, q
few yards after the second down,
Tukey attempted to kick a goal from
the field, but the ball was blocked. The
next sixteen plays netted Missouri
flffo'-three yards, when they lost the
ball on downs. In six plays Nebraska
