THE UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA, SEPTEMBER 20, 1901.
SCRUB TEAM IMPROVING,
ConBtant Coaching Adding Daily to

on the First Team
Now KieTcors Developing.
There were five captnlnB of the foot
ball team on Nebraska field laat even
ing at practice: Shedd, '97, Melford,
'98, Williams, '99, BVew, '00, and West
over, 01. Tho play was encouraging,
full of spirit and life. The forepart
of the practice was given over to
coaching Kingsbury, Bender and Bell
at kicking. Kingsbury punts well, but
1b not sure and steady. Bender and
Bell are bdth developing distance and
speed on the punt. Here Is where tho
team will lose or win. If Nebraska can
develop a kicker at present It looks
like the game was hers. If not, with
Knowlton's leg to depend pn, Minne
sota will win. The advantage of a
fifty or sixty yards punt at a critical
point can bo seen by a blind man.
About thirty men were out In suits.
Both Bcrub and 'Varsity played swift,
clean ball. Tho 'Varsity, although
closely held, scored twice during play.
The scrubs have tho best team in the
history of Nebraska football. Coach
Melford devoted most of his time
teaching tho under 'Varsity and his
work Is telling. The roll of the Becond
team includes Williams, Bell, Bally,
Martin, Tobln and othor 8ky-llghts.
The good derived from this every
night's Btrong opposition can hardly be
Imagined by any one not a football
player. When a game does come it
will be like tackling a common pro
position. The men will fall into their
work like machinery. Captain West
over praises tho work of both 'Var
sity and scrub. He says the kind of
play presented by both Is by far tho
best ever seen hero at this season.
Westover is playing star ball ut. tackle.
Stringer and ho make the strongest
tiuot of tackles in the west. Captain
Wostovor is a veteran at the colloge
game. He played for years on the
Lincoln high school team boforo en
tering the University. This Is hlB third
year on the 'Varsity and ho is reckoned
nsono of tho finest players who ever
wore Scarlet and Cream.
Tho side llneB wore well blackened
with students last evening. It is
thought that Nebraska cannot want
support this fall. What she needs to
top off enthusiasm is rooting. Not
spasmodic gutteral gusts of Bqueak
and jibber, but whole-souled, boister
ous, noisy, patriotic cheers the Bort
that has and always will win any
thing. An organized rooters' club Ib the
one thing demanded of tho student
body. Catchy songs and yells can be
learned and delivered with effect. Tho
football candidates take their pun
ishment for tho 'Varsity. Other stu
donts should throttle their falsa mod
esty and come around and shout a
little. "When ho sees a notice posted
,to gather for a' rooting organization,
the loyal student will move his chair

meeting of the year considerable work
was expected to bo done. Owing, how
ever to ground necessary to bo covered

tle actual business was done. It was

Sunday in our new room at 4 o'clock.
Bible study and missionary rallios and
a Geneva meeting will bo among tho
first. We wish to urge all the girls
to take up Borne part of the associa
tion work. To cut off Christian work
when one goes away to school is to
lessen one's work at the wrong end,
especially when there is an association
that offers Christian work for girls to
do along all lines." -NOTES.
