The team did not arrive at Ihi Millard

as It was billed, was piled on one long
table. Huge plies of sandwiches, pickles

braska played here was not a member of
the conference. 'Manager Eager, however.
said that no game could be played by a
conference team unless ' It was In the
town of the. conference Institution, but
brought to light one ray of hope which
had been overlooked by everyone when
he said that part of the University of Ne

Better Fit Fabrics-Service
It Is an Indisputable fact that clothes made to one's Individual
measure are better tn every way than the clothes which one
buys off the shelf. They fit better, wear longer, and have more
exclusive fabrica. Particularly is this true of shirts.
During the month of December, 1 am offering to the men ot
Omaha, a chance to buy custom made shirts, guaranteed to fit
PERFECTLY, at Just about the price of a shirt made for anybody.
At these prices I am doing an enormoiw business, but I give
my personal assurance to every patron that every shirt cut at
these prices will be aa carefully made, as finely finished, aa ex
pertly cut, as any shirt I have ever made.
