Rooters and Lincoln business men
took their turn today in pumping pep
into the Cornhuskers in preparation
for the .Notre Dame battle Thursday
The Lincoln Rotary club enter
tained the Husker squad at luncheon
at the Lincoln hotel today an an
nual affair; given under the direction
of the organization. Kred M. Hunter;
a former Husker star, gave t short
talk on Nebraska spirit and C. C
, Quiggle followed with a short speechi
Dr. Stewart said the Nebraska eleven
realized fully the job" ft had on its
hands, but one thing was certain
-..the Husker rooters would not need to
feel ashamed of their team next
Thursday evening,' '.V
At . the university the annual
' Thanksgiving rally of the ' Huskers
was held. The , un iversity- band :
aroused the rooters with, a number of
selections-and Coach Stewart .f in.';
tain Corey and Cameron spoke. The
. rally was the most enthusiastic of the
year. -i -i-"-- , -j
Although the coaches had not in
tended to scrimmage the Huskers
- last night, it was found wise to
change plans and Dr; Stewart put
his charges through a stiff drill on
new plays for half an hour. Every
member of the squad reported and
apparently the team ia in fair phys
ical trim, although some of the back
field men are lugging, bruises from
the Iowa tattle. ; (

circulated here today, is going to pay

time Dame Rumor says that Stiehm
would be glad to return to Nebraska.
. It is said that Stiehm has found In
diana lacking in foot ball material and
spirit and he longs for the old condi
tions at eoraska. Mill another
rumor is tnat stielim will attempt to
schedule a game with the Huskers
next fall. There is very little chance
of this, however, as the Nebraska
athletic board is not very favorable

Traveling 15,000 miles to play ten

most .players follow during the tour-
nament season. But whon George M

will be starting a trip that will take

traveling until March IS, 1917. .

is to play, for Californians have been
competing with their trans f Pacific ri
vals for years. William M. Johnston,
C. J. Grimm, Elja Fottrell and Ward
Dawson are the most recent represen
tatives of this country in these Pacific
tournaments. Church and Throckmor
ton are the first easterners to make
such a trip for several seasons, and
so their experience will be watched
with more than the usual interest.
It is certain that they will attract
much attention in the Orient, for they
are dashing players, whose spectacuar
performances on the court are bound
to arouse a gallery's enthusiasm. They

and' have a smashing style of play

Whether the United States is en
joying an era of prosperity and
whether the business of this year is
better than during year of the past,
is to be ascertained by an investiga
tion that the Associated Advertising
Clubs of the World has inaugurated.
The task of gathering the information
to determine what the business con
ditions have been during the last year,
as compared with former years, is to
begin December 4 and is to be com
pleted before midnight, December 7.
In determining the business condi
tions of the country, the United
States and Canada will come in for
investigation along this line and data
will be gathered from the great cities
of the area. - In this central section.
Omaha has been picked as 'one of the
leading marketing centers. The work
will be under the direction of the Na
tional Research committee and on this
committee from this section of coun
try, Charles D. Nolen of the Omaha
Ad club is named as a member,
Two years ago when the European
war commenced to unsettle business
conditions, the Associated Advertis
ing clubs instituted an investigation
to ascertain to just what extenfwar
had affected, or rather decreased, pur
chases of consumers. This investiga
tion shows a decrease of 2.3 per cent
as compared with the previous year..
In 1913 another investigation alone
similar lines waa: made throughout
the United States and Canada and
then it was ascertained that ui the
aggregate, the average " increase
American consumption had increased
1S.93 per cent over the previous vear.
On this showing the conclusion was
reached that the United States was
enjoying a period of unprecedented
prosperity. This being true, the
theory waa that the year 1916 would
be finished with a record never be
fore approached. - ;
- Along Like Line.
To ascertain Just what the vear
1916 has brought about in the wav
ot Dusiness prosperity Is why the in
vestigation is being made at this time.
And to secure the required data, the
investigation will be conducted along
lines similar to those of the two pre
. the investigation will cover the six
principal lines of retail .business, as
follows; Department stores, groceries.
clothing, hardware, jewelry and drug
atorc. r - .
' ' Five Question.
In conducting' this investigation, no
names are asked of dealers, and con
sequently no buisness secrets are
sought. It is just a olain business
proposition and all answers are on a
percentage basis. Five questions are
asked in gathering the required data.
iney are: i . .
What is the per cent of increase, or
decrease, in your total volume of sales
for November, 1916, as compared with

Removing the Guess.
, Mr. Nolen asserts that when the
data from the cities of the United
States and Canada is collected it will
take all the guess out of business and
give definite facts on; which to base
sales and advertising efforts during
the coming year,
The compilation of the data to be
undertaken goes into book form for
distribution among merchants and
business men of the country and is

value, due to the fact that this data

If you are one of the many we recommend this model.
It is a natural shape, fits snugly where snugness is needed,
yet allows free movement of toes, joints and muscles. In
