Greatest Game of the Year Will be
Played Saturday on Yale Grounds.
It has been live y < mrs Blnco Harvard
has boon a pronounced favorite over
Yale for the annual game between the
two colleges , and that long slnco she
won u big foot ball match from the
Blue. This year tlio Crimson finds
herself looked upon as the probable
winner of the game , though It Is
thought the contest will bo close. The
dllllculty with Harvard has usually
been with the spirit of the team , but
this year the eleven has played with
rather better spirit than has Yale. If
anything Is gained , therefore , by the
ability to rise to the emergency It will
probably bo the Crimson that , secures
The game at Now Haven next Satur
day Is not going to bo an easy one by
any means. Yalo'n chances to play a
stronger game than against Princeton
are excellent. She has just that mucl
moro time to whip her hackllold lute
shape and remedy the dllllcultles she
has met with In consequence of the
long Indisposition of Hoome. The In
jury to Morse Is also likely to have
Improved. This will glvo Yale some
thing like her true strength ! whlel
she undoubtedly lacked for the Prince
ton gamo.
It has been thought that Yale has
had no offense. That she has failed
often to display any strength Is true ,
but early In the year , when her backfield -
field was working well together , she
had It , and she ought to have Improved
It by placing Forbes at the end , where
he could be used In attack. She has
not been credited with the variety In
attack that some other teams have
boon conceded , yet It Is a fact that
she has more plays than any ether
team In the field.
Yale has as much straight running
ability as any team on the Hold. Were
she playing the same style of game as
was possible under the old rules last
year , she would unquestionably bo
able to force her way through any
line. Rut line plunging against a good
defense cannot gain enough under the
ten-yard rule to make It dependable ,
and the success of such new-fangled
plays as forward passes and quarter
back kicks , depend on perfect execu
tion and surprise for their success.
Any team may be fooled at times , and
Yale has several very clover forward
passes , but Harvard's defense has
been strong enough to justify the ex
pectation that she will be able to de
fend against them successfully.
On the other hand , there has been
no attack that has been so much un
derrated as Harvard's. The reason for
this is that she has In Wendell , Foster
and Lincoln In the backfleld a set of
backs who have been shifted because
of Injuries until they have not worked
together enough to show their real
ability when playing together. In
practice they have been seen oftener
than in public games and they are
really mighty effective men. Wendell
Is especially strong In line breaking ,
and both Foster and Lincoln arc
strong in skirting tackle , with enough
line plunging ability to make them of.

Their ability to gain Is probably not
quite so great as Yale's on straight
running , but their excellence In the
ramifications of new foot ball , fake
kicks , ' quarterback runs and trlcl <
plays , forward passes and onsldc
Kicks , Is comparatively much groatei
nnd makes their general offense rather
or stronger than Is Yale's.
In defense Yale has nothing on Har

whole , however , Harvard Is bettor pre
pared for a kicking game than Yale
and on this her main dopondanco real
ly lies.
She IB especially apt In covering the
ball on fumble. All the men have been
well coached In this and many a fum
ble has been saved and many a fumble
gained by this ability. In thin pro pit

It Is Harvard's great , smoothness

Dog Trainer of Omaha , Temporarily
Stopping In Town , Resists Paymen
of Tax on His Dog and Is Fined
Case Appealed to District Court.
Alnsworth , Neb. , Nov. 2 ! ! . Specia
to Tlio News : An Interesting point was
raised in Justice Potter's court hero
yesterday , Involving the question o
whether a city has the right to assess
a dog tax against a non-resident own
or. The case was brought by the mar
shal against Theodore Wiseman , a dog
trainer from Omaha , who came hero
last .Inly and practiced his profession
in the country south of town. Last
Saturday the defendant was making
arrangements to go to his home In
Omaha , when the marshal tried to take
bin dog and kill It or else payment of
$1.00 license. Wiseman claimed that
the city had no right to collect this tax
as he Is a non-resident , and the ordi
nances say that all resident owners
must pay a tax or have their dogs
killed. Then the marshal had Wise
man arrested for resisting an ofllcer
and the court lined him $5.00 and
coats. , T. A. Douglas of Hassett , who
represented Wiseman , appealed the
case to the district court , which con
venes on the 2rd ; ! of January , 1907.
Fighting Fire In Her Home , She In
haled Flame , Resulting Seriously.
Mrs. Hurl Heed was quite seriously
burned while lighting a lire that broke
out In the second story of the home
southwest of Norfolk Friday afternoon.
She ran Into the fire and , In putting It
out , Inhaled the Maine. Jler condition ,
according to Dr. .1. II. Mackay , Is quite
serious. The lire evidently resulted

Ideas Which Had Been Expressed In
Norfolk Several Days Before the
Convention , -Prevailed in the Meet
ing Burnham Member of Council ,
Norfolk bankers who attended the
state convention In Omaha , have re
turned. They were : C. E. Hurnham ,
A. Wltzlgman , George D. Butter-
eld , L. P. Pascwalk and J. U. May-
ard. C. E. Burnham of this city was
lade ono of the now members of the
xeciitlve council for four years.
While Norfolk bankers have hesl-
Ucd In the matter of giving their
lews on the proposed currency re-
inn , some of the opinions as ex-
resscd In this city prior to the Omaha
onvcntlon were very much in line
, -ltli the resolutions ns adopted against
10 proposed reform. The principal
bjectlon to the reform , ns expressed
evernl days ago , was the fact that
peculation might ensue. The west
ow has money enough to run it" and
noiigh to loan to the east ; Idle funds
rom the west find their way to Now
"ork in the summer ; the Now York
auks use those funds for various in-
cstments : the crop season comes on
nd the west calls for Its own money ,
'hen the New York City banks , hav
put the surplus funds to work , feel
shortage and complain. It was
bought that the currency reform was
eslred by the Now York banks for
he purpose of relieving this very nor-
ml and harmless "shortage" ns it Is
ailed , though It is In reality merely
call by the west for Its own money ,
'ho fear has been expressed that , by
icreaslng the currency at those times ,
o real relief would bo brought , ns the
'ow York banks could easily pay the
tigh tax for the sake of the money
nd , having invested the surplus that
hey could secure , another and a moro
orlous "shortage" would present It-
elf for solution. It would be a means
ome said , of simply going deeper am :
eoper , and there might be mnation as
"It Is Bryan's Idea. "
"The Idea of creating a surplus cur
ency for critical moments , " said one
justness man , "seems to me to bo a
eturn to the Idea of Bryan In 1S90
hat what wo needed was more money
Bryan suggested more silver , at 1C
o 1 , while the present proposed re
'orm suggests banknotes loaned on
janks' credit by the government , am'
be government means the taxpayers
) f the country. In 189G everybody was
condemning the scheme but now , It
now dress , It Is receiving endorse
inent In New York. It might be al
right for New York , but the west
: loesn't need It. It is the safest plan
: o let the money system alone. "
These Ideas , after lengthy debate ,
prevailed among Nebraska bankers
The action of the Nebraska conven
ion Is notable in that this is the firs
state to take action on the recently
iroposed plan.
The report of the resolutions com
mlttee , which was adopted , follows ir
mrt :
"We recognize the great differences
ictween stringent money situations
) rought about in the ordinary course
: > f business and the critical conditions
ivhich exist in times of bank panics ,
eii money needed in commercla
business is arbitrarily withdrawn am :
ocked up by frightened bank deposit
ors. In such times an extra money
supply Is Imperatively demanded to
prevent business stagnation and its at
cndants , bankruptcies and losses.
"We therefore ask the adoption o
he following resolutions :
"Resolved , That we are opposed to
the Issue In time of financial peace ,
ike the present , of any bank note cur
rency , except that now authorized se
cured by a deposit of United States
> onds.
"Hesolved , That we favor legislation
l > y congress authorizing the Issue o
an emergency circulation which wll
> e taxed so heavily that it would nee
> e Issued except in tlmo of great com
merclal stringency and Impending pan
cs nnd would be retired when the
conditions requiring its issue no longe
"We further recommend the adop
tlon of the following resolution :
"Hesolved , That we favor the re
peal of the provision In the natlona
banking law limiting the redemptloi
of national bank notes to $3,000,000 a
month. "
Wo speak of industries which turn
out bread and furniture and other
terlal things as productive or construe
tlve. Wo spend little tlmo thlnklnj
over the constructive or productlv
power of our modern public schoo
system. The schools of Norfolk ar
one of the most vitally constructive
factors In the whole community , and
as an Industry It takes first rank.
Some Institutions turn out things to
wear or things to eat. Schools turn
out young men and young women more
highly trained than they could have
been without the schools , more efll-
clently prepared to earn their way In
the world nnd to think out their own
they polish brains , though , nnd train
them In such a way that the contri
bution of the school system to society
Is Inestimably valuable.
The whole American continent pats
Itself on the back because of Us
schools when It thinks about It. Too
often there Is not the attention glveu
to the Echoolhousos and their armies
of young people that ought to bo. Hut
on special occasions the American con-
tlnent points with pride to its educa
tional Institutions.
And Norfolk Is bettor equipped In
this regard than most of the Amor-
lean continent. Larger cities have
larger schools , of course but few
have bettor. Smaller places can not
so well equip for student training and
The Norfolk high school the top
ripened fruit on the tree of Norfolk's
Schools do not manufacture brains ;
public school system stands high
among others of the commonwealth.
Norfolk Is not so largo as Omaha or
Lincoln or several other cities , hut
Norfolk takes a back seat for none of
them when It comes to school houses
ml school teachers and school work.
f the Norfolk school student falls to
et the right sort of a start , It Is his
> wn fault or that of his parents. The
ubllc Is doing all that It can toward
ashing him along In the right dlrec-
And this nil costs money. Norfolk
.axpayors spend more than $20,000
very year or rather for each school
orm of nine months for the educa-
lon of Its children. There are 1,15(5 (
children In the schools today. About
20 per year for every pupil is spent
.o maintain this service. The public
lays this money , It Is paid out to
eachers to buy winter wraps and pay
heir board bills. And teachers are
ilways'good about that.
The salaries alone amount to $15-
300 per year and that , with other ex
penses , amounted last year to $20-130.
As a result of this expenditure and
his effort , there go forth every year
classes of creditable graduates. Nor-
'olk ' can not bo ashamed of the rec
ords which have been made by doz
ens of young men and women who at
) iio time or another stood on the
church platform hero and received a
leatly tied diploma. Many of them
iinve done remarkably well in the va-
lous professions and trades , and
here arc still futures ahead of them.
Many will rellect genuine credit
ipon their alma mater before another
score of years.
Norfolk Is fortunate in its teaching
uid executive force. Superintendent
C. .1. Modwell , who came last year
'rom the county superintendency of
Douglas county to fill the vacancy
caused by the appointment of Super-
ntendent D. C. O'Connor to the posi-
.ion of Canal Zone superintendent , Is
one of the ablest educators in all the
west and bis energy goes forth each
day toward a more and more substan-
ial , conservative and enduring school
system here. Under his direction
many important changes have been ,
naugurafed and under his supervision
s an able corps of teachers.
Today the Norfolk high school is
an accredited institution so far
as the state university is concerned.
There was a time when this was not
the case.
The schools have been built up here
inder the guidance of a conservative
and thoroughly capable board of edu
cation. Regardless of politics , the
members of the Norfolk board of ed-
ication have been chosen for their
justness judgment , their intelligence
and their worth as guides in so im
portant n work.
There are six school buildings , the
ligh school having been built at a
cost of some $20,000. It Is a monument
ment to Norfolk's pioneers.

and mind in the city :
