Edson Rich of Omaha, who was
a fusion candidate for regent of the
state university, whs born at Griggs
Ville, Pike county, 111., in August, 1858.
At the age of seven years ho accom
panied his parents to Nebraska on a
steamboat and grew to manhood on the
rolling prairies of this fertile state. He
attended such schools as the meager fa
cilities of the times afforded and the
rudiments of learning acquired wero
supplemented by a course of the Ne
braska University. This was followed
by a thorough course at Johns Hopkins
university of Baltimore.
After leaving school Mr. Rich read
Ihw in the office of Hhrwood, Ames and
Kelly at Lincoln and was admitted to
practice here in 1889. In May, 1890, he
wont to Omaha, where he enghged in
active legal practice. The talents of
Mr. Rich soon won him a standing
among lawyers of mature exporlonco
and he rose rapidly by the exercise of
his ambition and perseverance.
Last year the fuslonists of Douglas
county nominated Mr. Rich for the leg
islature and, although the county went
strongly republican on most of the
ticket, he was elected by a good major
ity. When the legislative session open
ed ho immediately came to the front as
a leader of his party. His influence,
however, was not confined to his own
political organization, but much of the
best legislation enacted by the legisla
ture dominated by the opposing party
is traceable more or less to his ability
Mr. Rich, since the 'legislature ad
journed, has resumed his law practice,
which has grown so much as to occupy
all of his business hours. The nomina
tion for university regent came to him
unsought, and when h'.s statement of
expenses was filed Mr. Rich was able to
say that he had not spent a cent of
money in securing the nomination. He
is a man who will labor for the up
building of Nebraska's great university
to the highest possible standard.

John L Teeters was born on a farm
in Johnson county, Iowa, in 1801. He

joining West Liberty, la., in 1809. He
graduated from the West Liberty high
school in 1879 and from the Iowa City
commercial college in 1830; entered the
Etate University of Iowa in 1882 and
graduated from the scientific course in
188C. Immediately after leaving school
he accepted a responsible position
with a wholesale jewelry firm in Des
Moines, la., and made his headquarters
in Lincoln, looking after the interests
of his firm in the trans-Missouri states.
In 1891 Mr. Teeters located perman
ently in Lincoln, and in 1892" entered
the wholesale jewelry business on his
own account, in which he has been emi
nently successful. Mr. Teeters has al
ways taken an active part in public nf
fairs, but his nominatlton by the fu
sion parties marked his first appear
ance before tho public as a candidate
for office. Tho new regont will bo espe
cially welcomed by tho supporters of
athletics in tho university. While a
student at tho University of Iowa he

cordine to association rules. For two
years of this time ho captained the
team. During the same period ho play
ed base ball on the university nino, and

letic lines, as ho was for two years busi
ness manager of tho college paper, the
Viuettc-Roportor. During his stay in
college he road law during spare mo
ments, and after coming to Nebraska
ho took up tho work again and was al
mited to the Nebraska bar, although

SONGS FOR THE GAME.
Below are given two songs for the
game Saturday with Kansas. Every stu
dent is requested to learn both and at
tend chapel Friday morning to prac
tice the same.
Air "I Guess I'll Have to Telegraph
There were once eleven Kansas men,
Whom fortune did invite
To conquer all the little teams
That came within her sight;
They jollied with the Indians,
And played croquet with Drake,
But struck a grown up elephant
In a Nebraska fake.
They thought we were cinches,
That feet were as inches
In making their gains through
Our center and end;
Dreamt the story
Of tho glory,
Wild and gory,
She would send
Back to Lawrence
When their captain
Found us on tho mend.
First he sighed,
Then he cried,
And sadly replied.
1 guess I'll have to telegraph to Kan
sas That Nebraska's field has been our
It is the placo that we have always
Tills catastrophe is nothing new;
I wish that wo wore hack in Lawrenco,
And never more would roam;
Nebraska's strength forgetting,
Wo became so rash in hotting
That we'll have to walk back homo.
J Air "Hollo, My Baby."
Wave the scarlet and cream;
You aro tho foot ball star,
No one is on your par,
Go in and beat them,
You can defeat them;
Kansas must say, "We're dono,"
For 'Braska, Nobraska, you're tho one!
