bilier & pnine
operator at Lawrence ono of tho tele
grams read "Coont's makes touch
down and Right kicks goal" instead
of "Cook makes touch down and
Ringer kicks goal." As no men by
those names wcro on our team the
inference was that tho touch down
was mado by Kansas.
A later telegram, however, gave a
score of 12 to 0 for Nebraska and tho
reaction was so great that tho crowd
nearly raised tho roof with yells. In
the evening a long string of men with
megaphones marched about tho city.
A good crowd washout in spite of tho
bad weather.
Tho football teams of tho junior ,
and senior classes played on the cam-
pus last Tuesday afternoon. Tho '
game was exciting, filled with off-side i
plays and fouling on both sides. The '
score was 11 to 0 in favor of the
junior class.
A cold northwest wind made i very
uncomfortable for the spectators. They
rushed onto the field around tho team
and hlndred free plays. Their cheers
and laughter did much to rattle the
players, causing fumbles on about
every other play and making end runs
Impossible. Team work on neither
side was noticeable and as yet no one
has been found who is willing to de
clare that ho saw any. However, the
juniors won by some means. Their
goal was not at any time in danger
except from the strong wind which
threatened to blow the posts over.
The game ended with three cheers
from the crowd for the classes and the
junior yell given by Dassenbrock.
The Seniors will have a yell prepared
by a special committee and will give
it later in the season.

A relic is now on exhibition at the
historical library which is a remnant
of a scrap which took place at the
University just eighteen years ago.
The scrap was of a political nature
and the contest was over a large
coffin. The affair resulted in the
coffin being broken into small pieces,
one of which has been preserved and
may be seen at the historical library.
The donor is G. A. Monroe, of Col
umbus. During tho presidential campaign
of 1S82, the womans suffrage question
was strongly agitated and the feeling
rose to an abnormal pitch at the Uni
versity. A Womans Suffrage club was
organized; immediately the anti-wo-mans
suffragists organized a club and
these two clubs were the participants
in the scrap just mentioned.
The clubs were continually playing
jokes on each other and finally the
climax was reached when the anti
suffragists bought a large coffin and
brought it to the Universit where they
intended to cremate it. But in an un
guarded moment their opponents stole
the thing, and the next morning it
appeared on the porch on the south
door of the main building. Then the
fight ensued In which the anti-suffragists
were worsted, however they got
possession of the lid which they car
ried to 11th and O streets where they
burned it. The suffragists divided the
remainder among themselves and this
piece has come down as a relic of that
memorable flghL Mr. Sheldon who is
now attending the University was a
participant in the scrap on the anti-
suffrage side and ho says that after
ward their crowd had a banquet at tho
homo of H. II. Wilson, a prominent
lawyer In tho city.

Chas. E. Crawuaver '97 has recently
been appointed assistant Professor of

S. A. White '98 is now an assistant
manager of a colony sent out by a
prominent rubber company to develop
land in Honduras. Tho company has
a conscssion from the government of
Honduras ofland on the Petuca river
about one hundred and fifty miles in
land. In return the company is to
develop the rubber production, then
the hardwood trees, and to construct
a railroad to tho coast.
If tho colony is successful the pos
ition will be a very lucrative one for
Mr. White.
On Friday, November 16, each class
in the gymnasium held a meeting in
the new chapel in the interest of the
Girls Rest Room. This is to be fitted
up in the south west corner of Memor
ial hall. Plans for It have been
formed by the Woman's Faculty Club
and the chancellor. Miss Barr laid
these plans before the girls, giving
the list of necessary furniture.
It had been suggested that each girl
In the University contribute ten cents
and it seemed appropriate that the
gymnasium -girls should start the sub
scription. Committees from each
class were chosen to consult with Miss
Barr and tho assistants and to buy
one piece of furniture.
The response was beyond all expec
tation, from three hundred and twenty-five
girls eighty dollars havo been
subscribed and about forty more girls
have yet to be seen. It is expected to
furnish the room immediately, the
color scheme being dark trreen. This
Is to be merely a rest room and not a
place for study nor a lunch room.
Tho chancellor's idea is for the girls
of each senior class on leaving to give
something to this room.
A house warming is to be given
soon after Thanksgiving at which
the girls will entertain their friends.
