Big Day of Year.
Homecoming day has become the
big day of the year for the old grads.
Inaugurated fifteen years ago it has
become to be the most enjoyable and
important event of each autumn. It
has served to strengthen the bond of
fellowship between graduate and un
dergraduate, student and teacher, to
awaken college spirit and furnish a
stimulus for the triumphs of the Corn
husker gridiron eleven.
Ordinarily homecoming day is ob
served when the Cornhusiker and the
Jayhawk clash on the gridiron. This
year, however, the Huskers' ancient
rivals will be battled on their own
field, so the Missouri Eamc, the only
J) other Missouri valley contest this sea
son, was chosen for the event.
t Tigers Improve.
Early ir. the season the TJgers were
reported weak, and they hawe suffered
three defeats. But Owen Frank, who
scouted the Tigers in action last
Saturday, declares Schulte s men com
noe a Dowerful eleven and that three
of the stars of the team will play for
the first time against Nebraska.
A change in the arrangements for
homrcominflr dav was made by T. A.
Williams, superintendent of student
activities m Nebraska. instead ot
featuring the homecoming day with a
series of "all-university" events this
year, tne XMCDrasna management
deemed it wiser' to allow the fraterni
ties and sororities to do the enter
taining at parties and dances. The
Greek sororities welcomed the plan
and have arranged social events seem
ingly without end.
The French war orphan fund, for
which the University Players will give
their play, is a pet undertaking of
the University of Nebraska. The fund
has already reached $io,uuu, sumcieni
to provide for the maintenance of

Methods, in Army
Save Many Lives
Behind British Lines in France,
Nov. 9 The American doctors who
are now at work in various parts of
the British front find that army sur
cerv has advanced just as rapidly
since the beginning of the war as any
other branch of war s activities, in
the early days of the war, wounds
were of an average gravity far beyond
that expected from the experience of
previous wars, while tetanus, gas
gangrene and severe suppuration
were general and 'hundreds died of
comparatively trivial injuries for lack
of early and adequate-treatment.
This situation has now teen altered
almost beyond recognition. Serum
treatment has almost done away with
tetanus, while earlier and more ener
getic surgical treatment has largely
defeated gangrene. More and more
of the major surgical work is being
carried out in the casualty clearing
stations, and some of the most fa
mous of the American surgeons have
spent most of their time since their
arrival, in advanced1 hospitals within
sound of the German guns.
The key to the whole improvement
in surgical results has been the push
ing of the surgeon nearer and nearer
to the fighting lines. The enemy has
endeavored to counter this by per
sistent bombing of the advanced hos
pitals, but the saving of life is more
than worth the loss of life, and suit
able defensive measures are being
The doctor, as distinguished from
the surgeon, has also accomplished
wonders in this war. The small mor
tality from disease in the British and
French armies is due to his constant
vigilance. His two great weapons
have been sanitation and prophylactic
inoculation. In a scene of unparalleled
confusion and in an area of quite
primitive sanitation, his exertions
nave resulted in an astonishing de
gree of sanitary efficiency. Refuse
is destroyed or deeply buried; battle
fields in many cases are cleaned tip
within a few days; pure water supplies
are provided. Everywhere behind the
immediate front, order and cleanliness
are the rule.
The rule of the army medical officer
is not always welcomed by the in
habitants, but it works with magnifi
cent success, until camps and towns,
. which in previous wars would have
been death traps, have a mortality as
low as the most approved health re
sort. The routine work of these med
ical officers has probably saved more
ives than alt the other medical work
, of the war
