Nebraskans Give Sooners Sixth
Straight Defeat; Win by 34 to 20;
Eight hundred and twenty thousand
dollars is the amount asked to be appro
pr: ted for new buildings for the uni-
versity in bills introduced in the state
legislature Monday and Tuesday.
These provide for a pharmacy build
ing, a physics building, a natural science
building, and the addition of a wing 10
the university library building.
The bill introduced by Harry B. Cor-
dell, Manitou, provides for the erection
of a natural science building to cost
$383,000. This would relieve the de
partment of zoology and similar depart-
ments now packed away in the chemistiy
"Cordell also introduced the bill asking
for $145,000 for extensions on the libr-
ary building. The original plans of the
building called for three wings, but ex
c^tive slashing, the university secured
onjy enough money to build one wing.
Ben F. Harrison, Calvin, introduced
the bill which asks for the erection of a
$250,000 pharmacy building, and asking
fc>r $25,000 to equip it. The state phar-
maceutical association is backing this
bill. The association is composed of
virtually all the druggists of the state

build ng, with equipment valued at
$50,000 was intrduced by R. C. Hardie,
. Both bills ca'l for appropriations this
year, starting in July, and provides for
the equipment next year.
Sooner Cagers Play Every Night

The jinx that accompanied the Sooner
basketball squad to Manhattan for the
1921 Valley opening games seems to be
still in pursuit of the Oklahomans. The
Creighton victory rumor proved to be

nstead of the more overwhelming one
of 37 to 17.
Monday evening the Sooners clashed
with the Cornhuskers at Lincoln and
ost the first of the two game series 34
to 20. "Guilty of inaccurate goal shoot-
ng" is the phrase used to describe the
_ause for the Sooners small score.
This defect appears to be the only point
