of play but did not havo a chance to
show his worth.

of tho uncertainty concerning victory.

tho Gophers. Two downs netted no
gain nnd Knowlton tried for a place
kick. This time ho was successful
making the score 15 to 6 in tho north
erners favor. Nothing was accomplis

and the only feature was Drain's 25
yard run In returning a punt.

both sides and each secured a touch
down. The rally of Nebraska was ft
aurprlso. Bonder had taken Mont

THK MjUMNI "ORGAN.
Attendant upon tho opening of the
now olinpol and tho uso of tho Alumni
organ, a fow facts (oncoming it may
bo of Intorost.
The organ wiib built, primarily, for
for ubo at tho Tnu'.smiBBlsHlppi Ex
position, In tho music hall. 'Profos
Bor Kimball, of tho School of Music,
was thou musical director of tho ox
position and tho niiinufacturor M. P.
Moollor, of Ilagorstown Md. roforrod
tho plans and specifications to him.
The Idea of It sometime bocomlng tho
property of tho UnlvorBlty then oc
curred to Mr. Kimbnll and tho plunB
woro drawn accordingly.
Aftor tho Exposition was ovov, a
mooting of nlumnl was callod, and tho
purchaoo of it was dotorminod upon,
thoy promising to pay 'twontyjfivo 'hun
dred dollars of tho throo thousund
reaulrod.Prof. 'Kimball prom JBlngjIn be
half of tho School of MubIo, 'fivo 'hun
drod. This was a special offor, tho
manufacturer saying that ho would not
duplicato tho instrumen t for seven
Tho amount promised by tho alum
ni has been obtained from former stud
ents and graduates in donations not
exceeding ton dollars.
The organ as It stands now in tho
chapel is a very hoautiful instrumont,
with ornato case of oalf. It has
twenty-three hundred pipes, with three
manuals and fifty registers. It is
throughout, of tho latest modol, with
all tho up-to-date appliances, one fea
ture being radiating and concave ped
als enabling the player to oporato tho
Instrumont witl tho greatest easo.
Tho stops aro very complete, tho
string and voxia lumlaina tones Do
ing particularly beautiful, Tich and
full. Tho organ, as a wholo, is ono
of tho finest vest of tho Mississippi
It is not oxpected that it can he used
at the oponing of tho new chapol, as it
is not sufficiently tuned, nor is thoro
any power to supply the air. It will
bo run by olcctrlc power and tho "motor
will bo vory late in arriving, consider
able time then being required to sot
A special program will probably ho
rendered with its use at tho dedication
of tho new chapol which will probably
occur about Charter Day. It Is sug
gested that that day would bo a very
appropriate ono on which to have tho
formal dedication cormonlos, a fine
program bolng given In tho presence
of tho state and university officials.
