The Y. M. C. A. of the university hns
undertaken to complete a directory of
all students and faculty of the institu
tion, giving their course, class and
street and number in the city. In
order to make a success of this move
it is necessary that each and every stu
dent and instructor in the university
have his address properly given in the
lists in the registrar's office. At any
time a student moves from one location
to another he should call on the regis
trar and have it changed immediately.
Unless this is done records of any kind
of students are worse than useless. Let
everyone accept this notice as applica
ble to himself and see that his address
is in shape for the directory.
The mass meeting held in chapel
Friday for the purpose of arousing en
thusiasm for the Kansas-Nebraska
game was gratifying to tho39 in charge.
On account of the musical program
that preceded a larger attendance was
secured than is the custom at such
meetings. Chancellor Bessey started
the ball In the right direct'on before
he placed the meeting in charge of the
president of the athletic board. The
major portion of the enthusiasm was
confined to the east side of the chapel
as usual, although several of the young
ladies purchased tickets freely. It is
very natural that a smaller number of
tickets be sold to them on account of
the fact that a large number expect in
vitations from gentlemen for the game.
However, this does not prevent them
from showing spirit and interest in the
proceedings. If fifty young ladies
started out to do so, they could bring
about more changes in athletics in Ne
braska in one year than six times that
many men can in half a dozen years.
In this particular case several ladies
made themselves very conspicuous by
leaving the room. The fact that they
did this immediately after it had been
announced that classes would bo dis
missed for the hour showed only too
plainly their apathy. We regret that
this is the case, and trust that It will
never happen in tho future. On the
whole, tho result of tho meeting should
show Itself this week on overy hand.
With tho number who volunteered to
take tickets, It Is evident that the lives
of all who did not will bo well stirred.
The editors of the Nebraskan-Hes-perian
reserved comment on the Iowa
Nebraska game last week for several
reasons. Feelings of regret at the re
suit of the game was one cause that
impelled silence. We did not begrudge
Iowa her victory, but tho fact that tho
score was do slightly the true standing
of tho. teams, made it hard to say a
groat deal without prejudice. Our con
gratulations go to tho victors of the
contest, as they played ball good
enough to win fairly and squarely. We
have one regret about tho game, and
only one. When our team had carried
tho ball across the Hold by steady gains,
and were upon tho point of pushing It
over tho goal, Iowa played off-side con
tinually. Tho rcforec interfered on oc
casions, yet the play was done in that
wav for several times in succession.
The fnct left the only mar on the game
from the standpoint of the Nebraska
spectators. In speaking of tho game
tho Videtto-Rcporter of tho University
of Iowa has the following editorial:
"Iowa's victory Saturday over Ne
braska evens up the record between the
two universities. The first nnnual
game was held in I8!)l, a total of ten
games having been played since that
time. Of these, Iowa has won four and
Nebraska four, two games being tied.
"Although the score of tho game
stands 30-0, it does not menu that Iowa
had a walk-away by any means. The
team feels more generally used up than
after any game this season. The Nc
braskans played with most admirable
spirit and Iowa's joy in victory is the
greater from having wrung it from
such determined opponents. Iowa is
proud to have played Nebraska that
game Saturday and hopes that Ne
braska's sun will see a brilliant setting
in its succeeding foot ball games.
"Charles S. MacDonald, '01, who had
been in Council Bluffs for some time
before the game working up enthusi
asm, did his work well, as the Daily
" 'The attendance at the game was
limited to about 1,000, a majority of
whom were from Council Bluffs, which
fully demonstrated to the management
that this side of the river is the place
for the annual came. Iowa and Iowa's
colors were in evidence in the grand
stand and along the side lines, and
Iowa's yell was heard much more than
was that of Nebraska. Speaking of the
attendance last evening, Manager Mc
Cutchen of the Iowa team said: "The
receipts were sufficient to pay the ex
penses, and a little more. We were very
much pleased with the turnout from
Council Bluffs. I at once recognized
the fact that from two-thirds to three
quarters of those present were from
the Iowa side of the river." ' "
The victory of the Nebraska foot ball
team at Des Moines Saturday stands
as an example of what steady, hard and
conscientious practice will do for a
team in training. With the odds heav
ily against them, a string of defeats,
brought about through hard luck
rather than poor play, to wipe out, the
opposing team on its home ground and
flushed with a recent victory over Mis
souri, and with the reputation of the
year hanging upon the one game, Ne
braska fought to the bitter end with a
determination that could not fail to win
from the strongest of teams. Drake
proved an opponent worthy of the best
steel, and had it not been for the great
work of the home team defeat would
have been inevitable.
With the condition of affairs as they
were last week, can the student body
fall to take some credit for the victory
so gamely won? With the enthusinsm
of the mass meeting still fresh in their
memories, and tho send-off given to
them at the train still echoing in their
ears, is it not a fitting ending that the
members of tho team should win the
game? The only source of regret is
that tho latent enthusiasm among the
students was not aroused earlier in tho
With the satisfaction of knowing
that Nebraska can win at foot ball, tho
eyes of tho students turn to the game
with Kansas Saturday. Tho voice of
the entire 'student body says that it is
necessary to win, no matter what tho
odds may be against us. Two dofeatn
in as many years have aroused tho net
tle of our southern opponent. Tho two
victories corresponding to tho two de
feats have made Nebraska more and
more determined that she will not lot
the honor bo undone.
With this state of affairs is thero
any doubt that the coming game will
be one of the best ever soon on tho
home grounds?. Should not every stu
dent of Nebraska go to that game and
shout himself hoarse to help the team
on to victory? No matter tho bad ef
fects to voices; a lung or two sacrificed
In a good cause Is not to be considered.
Nebraska must win, and win honestly,
through the united efforts of every stu
dent in the university and tho team
that Is their representative. Songs
have been written, some of which will
bo published in this Issue of the No
braskan-Hosporlnn. Every student Is
to learn these, and when the time
conies ho Is expected to use his voice to
the best of his ability, follow the leader,
yell when tho signal is given, sing
when asked and, in fact, govern him
self as if he had a regulator concealed
somewhero about his person. We in
sist thnt Nebraska Is designed to be tho
winner, and we desire that everybody
support us in our statements.

ONE REDEEMING FEATURE.
Students in the University of Ne
braska who have been sufficiently un
fortunate to have been placed on the
board of one of tho publications realize
as thoroughly as any the disadvantage
of using an ordinary pen for writing
copy. The dip at irregular intervals Is
enough to ruin tho temper of the ordi
nary student. At any time and in one's
best momentB It is hard to follow a reg
ular and continuous though throughout
a paragraph. Nothing is more nggra
vatlng than tho necessity to stop and
dip, dip, dip. Persons habitually writ
ing cannot fail to become impatient in
the course of time. The editors of this
pnper have discovered a plan whereby
there is no danger that they will in a
few years retire of nervous prostration
Waterman's Ideal Fountain pen lias
