Football Team Leaves for Missouri
this Morning A Hard Gamo
Looked for What Other
Teams are Doing.
The 'Varsity football team loft this
morning at 6:45 for KlrkBvllle, Mo.
The osteopaths will entertain them
Saturday for a couplo of thlrty-mlnuto
halves. Before Sol had poked his noBe
over tho eastern sky-lino this morn
ing messenger boys scurried through
tho shadowy streets of Lincoln and
awakened the football men. Tho team
left over the B'urllngton. They will
breakfast at Council Bluffs, dine at
Kansas City and arrive in Klrksvlllo
about 4 o'clock. Tho boyB retire oarly
and rest until Saturday aftornootf.
Klrksvlllo osteopaths are playing good
football. This is known, although
nothing definite as to kind or quality
has been ascertained. They have beat
en Upper Iowa College and St. Joe
MedicB by big scores this season. How
over, it is hardly to bo expected that
tho Nebraskans will go down before
tho rushes of tho bone-rubbers. Yes
terday's practice on Nebraska field was
not what it should have beon. It was a
disappointment to everybody and a
slur on -the good work thuB far accom
plished. There seemed to bo no life or
interest in the play. Signals were for
gotten and several mix-ups resulted.
Cortelyou was hurt qulto badly by a
piece of interference on a balled-up
signal. Kingsbury was injured and re
tired. Eager was put in at full. To
day's exhibition may bo an off-day.
One thing is certain, Nebraska will
put up a good article Saturday. Tho
mon are enthusiastic for their initial
game. The men chosen for the trip
aro: Crandall, Kingsbury, Bender,
Coriolyou, Shodd,. Stringer, Captain
Westovor, Ringer, Brow, Ryan, Ma
loney, Koohler, Drain and Eager. Ryan
will not play unless Drain bo badly
hurt, for his shoulder is still on tho
eicH- list. Malonoy will sub tho Hue;
Eager, all back of tho lino. Coach
Booth and Cowgill will steer tho ex
pedition. Dr. Everett, jr., will act as
first mate and tend to all physical ail
ments. Tho University owes tho doc
tor a great deal of thanks for the in
terest he has taken in football this fall
and the help, ho has given. Students
should watch for the red lantern on
University Hall Saturday night. When
thoy.seo it, they will know it to be a
signal to comeout on Nebraska field
and celebrate. There'll bo a camp

The following extracts from, the
Minnesota Dally show up the work of
"In Saturday's gamo the 'Varsity
team Bhowed poor team work. Espec
ially in the first half the play was
ragged andopen. It was an easy mat
ter for the high school boys to get at
tho runner and oven succeeded in
breaking up the play boforo it was fair
ly started. Then when a few 3uro
ground-gaining plays would have
scored a touch-down the 'Varsity was
sure to fumblo and lose tho hall. It
was rather discouraging to tho rootors
to see tho 'Varsity team held down
to an oven score by a team .of high
school boyB. It augurs poorly for this
year's team. But, on tho other hand,
last year'B team was held to a stand
still by tho Minneapolis high Bchool
team and narrowly escaped being
scored on. This year all play was on
Central's territory and with but ono
exception central never got tho ball
except on a fumble, kick or penalty.
If the '01 team develops as fast aa
last year's team there Is no cbubo for
"One thing is certain, wo won't have
to meet Plllsbury. We are glad of it.
To oppose a man who bears tho same
name as the father of tho U. of M. fills
ub with a certain amount of shame. To
think that a man bearing that name
would bend every effort to defeat us
fills us with awe and dismay. Never
mind, Mr. Plllsbury, of Nebraska,
what's In a name anyway."
Wisconsin is lato In starting prac
tice owning to tho lateness of the date
ot opening of school. A special from
tho Chicago Tribune tells of tho first
"This afternoon, for probably the
first time in the football history of
tho university, candidates for the team
were lined up for scrimmage practice
before the beginning of the regular
"The previous policy has beon to put
off this department of training until
at least a week lator and some specula
tion has been caused by its early be
ginning. Tho most probablo explana
tion seems to bo in tho largo num
ber of new men trying for tho team.
Without gotting ihem into some hard
scrimmage work it would bo practical
ly Impossible to sift them out.
"The regulars lined up in the same
order as last night, with the excep
tion of Lorum at Tight guard, Daum at
right end, and Liljequist at quarter,.
Tho feature of the scrimmage was tho
flno work of Fogg, the most likely
candidato for 'varsity quarter. Play
ing in that position on the scrubs,, he
took advantage of a fumblo to run
twenty yardB through tho 'varsity
field before being downejL Further
than this, his work was characterized
by hard, aggressive play. Scheiber re
ported for practice, but did not get
into any hard work. Marshall, substi
tute last year, waB also out' and tried
his hand at quarter.
"Graduate. .Manager C.JBLlilpatrlck
loft for Chicago tonight, and as a re
sult thore are more rumors of a Wisconsin-Michigan
however, took occasion to deny boforo
leaving that there would be a meeting
between tho rival universities, saying
the schedule was full and could not
possibly be rearranged. The conserva
tive opinion hero seems to bo that
although a Michigan-Wisconsin game
would be desirable, yet under the con
ditions this year it is out of tho question."
