Varsity Practice Improves.
Yesterday'sfootball practice wassty
all odds the best of the season. There
was much more dash in the pliay aid
the team work was excellent. Caley
again played at guard and got into
every play. His coming has wondes-n
fully strengthened the center of toe I
line. Hannan played th. fulltbak
position id made an excellent held
goal frosm the 35-yard line. Hogg and
Pingree each made excellent dodginsg
runs of 30 yards. Three touchdownst
were scored on the second scrubs ad
sa field goal on the first scrubs, a kick-
sing game 'being played againsiit te at
ter. Neither of the scrub teasgot
nearer than the 40 yard ine to the
'varsity's goal. Steckel, who playd
tackle on the first scrubs, showed up
especially strong, a's did McLean at1
ialf-back. Lockwood was out in usni-
form for the first time in over a week,
but did no active work. Allen, at onee
timse captain of the Stanford Univer-
sity team, was out for the first time.
It is exeted that tte Nosal
School tea-sn will come over again to-,
day for practice.
Against Brutalizing Exhibition.
'Phe local clergy and some members
of the faculty are sp in arms over the
appearance of the Corbetti-itzsisss-
mon's verisope pictures at the Athenss
Thea'tre Saturday night. The follow-
ing petition shows their setim(nlts on
"We, the undersigtled, ha e seens
with deels regret that the verisope
pictures of Corbett-Fitzsiiunohs fight
as announced to be exhibited at the
Athens Theatre, next saturday night.
It seems to as iss view of the neces-
sarify brutalizing effect of the exhib-
ition of such pictures, scarcely l s
tbrutalizing than that of the fight itself,
t asnouncement of the exhibitions
ought to be withdrawn and in view of
the inevitably evil effects of the ex-
hibition upon those who attend, 'and,
ineod, directly or indirectly tupsi lithe
whole body of young people gathered
in this great educational ce'ter, we
respectfully suggest to the maunage-
ment the propriety of withdrawing the
same. It is signed by anl 'the local
clergy, Pres. Hutchins, Deans Hudson,
Taft, Vaughan, Greene, Prescott, Re-
gent Dea. n,and Prof. Thompson.
Golf Club Organizes.
Some thirty students interested in
golf 'have finally organized a club with
William Johnston, Alpha Delta PhIt
as chairman. An executive committee
composed of Harold Wetmore, Delta
Kappa Epsilon; Burt Adams, Sigma
,Phi; and Wn. Callm, Psi U; was ap-
pointed. The links have been laid out
on a piece of land at the end o State
street, across 'the T. & A. I. It. and
everything will be ready for playrs
today. There .is strong talk of liaving
an expert player from Grand Ra:ds
come and teach the game to those who
,wish olearn it.

DR. NANSEN COMING.
The Great Explorer in the S. L.
Dr. Nanses is a hardy Norseman,
and ie looks it, every inch of hiis.
He is very tall-full six feet, if not An
[ch or two above it. He has a fine,
clear complexion, fair hair and mus-
tache. The face is that of a man of
keen intelligence, of marked deter-
imination, of gentle and kindly dispo-
sition. There is a peculiarly soft and
tender look in the blue eyes, and the
smile is very sweet, lighting up one of
he brightest faces. The nouth is very
firm, indicating the stresgith of will
and independence so often sssifested
in this great man's actions. His man-
ner is most retiring and mooest, yet
so easy and confidenee-inspiring that
to be in his company is to feel one is
with a friend and to feel at ahme.
'Ts cuts ccompaying Ihis atis

tse s. I. A. course, show the distin-
guished explorer as he appears on the
lecture platform and as 'lie ooked
