A five dollar rate to Minnesota has
been assured. The Rock Island made
an agreement with Manager Cowglll
to carry .everybody over their road for
live dollars for the round trip. Not
only that, but the Rdck Island la pro
pared to go as much lower as any other
road will go. The football team, the
excursions, all, go over the Rock Isl
and to Minneapolis. The train leaves
Lincoln at seven Friday evening and
reaches Minneapolis about nine or ten

Saturday evening after the game. Tour

dollars for the round trip. vTwo men
can combine and make both ways for a
dollar apiece. Most Minnesotans last

stiff and sore. Captain Westover has
a Charley-horse and carries a limp.
Ringer has a game knee and won't be
in tho game for another week. But to
counteract these misfortunes, George
Shcdd appeared on the field in suit and
toggery. Shedd played half and full
on the team's of '96, '97 and '98. He en
tered tho law school yesterday and af
ter considerable persuasion agreed to
help the 'Varsity all ho could. He
will strengthen the team at full. By
the way, Pillsbury is in college. The
team needs Pill, and the boys feel that
he should get out. Captain Westover is

his men In. They were tired and sore
from the Klrksville game. The foot
ball men are very much dissatisfied
with' the account of Saturday's game
sent to the city papers. It Is said that
the account was written by a' Klrksville
man, sent to the Kansas City Journal
and resent from there to Lincoln. The
report In question' gave Nebraska de
cidedly the slim side of the argument

Osteopaths were hired placers and
that they have been In training since
the middle of August. At no time dur

did Klrksville make over five yards.,

Booth sayp ho is more than pleased
with the game Nebraska put up. Tho
next two weeks will see 'a wonderful
development in Nebraska's work.
Now that rates' are secured that in
sure a crowd for Minnesota, the next
thing is rooting. Tonight on, Nebraska
field at 4:30 a rooters club will be or
ganized. Yell leaders will be elected
and a few of the yells practiced. R. D.
Andresen has offered his services.
Doane college plays here next Satur
day. The rooting section can .work a
little on them.
THE MINNESOTA TEAM.
The Minnesota team is doing some
hard practice as the following'from the
Minnesota Daily will show:

With both Rogers and Auno out of
the gamo because of Injuries, the nat
ural inference would be that the first
team would be seriously handicapped,
yet at the practice last night they ap
peared able to score almost at will.
The whole team appeared to get Into
tho game and, never lost the, ball on,
downs before scoring two touch-downs,
FJynn was in his old-time form and
broke throughfcho line repeatedly ioi;

cheers from "the grand-stand. Dr. Will

with some of his own enthusiasm and
the rooters are feeling more hopeful
after last night's work.
Rogers will probably, be in the game

This meet will take the place of tho
customary freshman-sophomore meet
on account of the conflicting standings
of the men as regards their classes.
The idea is to do away with all this
trouble and establish a meet for all
the University. Any one may enter
either for training or competition.
The usual program of field events
and track work will be carried out in
detail with the objoct of arousing more
general Interest -in such work for tho
winter. The material also for the
spring track team will thus bo devel
oped and further trained during the
j3old. silver and bronze medals will
be offered for each event, and will bo
worthy of some effort to obtain besides
the training and Tipnor "Which-are-at--

It Is hoped that such a move will
build up Interest generally In Univer

THE mSLAND-STANFORD -DEBATE,
Tho following extract from tho Dally
Palo Alto will bo interesting as show
ing the Stanford end of the negotia
tions for a debate: .
At the call -of President .Rice, the
executive committee, of the inter-so-
clety debating league met this afte"r-J
noon to consider the question of ar
ranging a debate with the University
of .Nebraska, The subject was brought
up by a letter from' P; B., Weaver,
president of the Nebraska "University
Debating association, of which the .fol
lowing extracts give tho substance!
"Last winter and spring there, was
correspondence between our respective
debating, associations relative to a de
bate between Leland Stanford -'Junior
University and the University of Ne
braska, piglngj to nfprt'unateVdelays;
however, the engagement entered "into
was cancelled by Nebriska'g executive
committee,, for reasoHg ahowa by the.
correspondence j)l Jast spring, namely,
foar of a financial falluro by Bdmo, ow
ing to the necessary conflict of date
with final examinations.
. "Nobraska desires to debato with
your leaguo this year, preforably
thore. Our loaguo now debates with
Colorado, Kansas and Missouri univer
sities, the placo of dobato alternating
each year. This year wo expect to on
tertaln Colorado and Kansas at homo.
Next year we will only have Missouri.
If you could entertain our team this
year we can manage to return the
favor next year." -
After discussing tho letter in tho
meeting, the committee, by a vote, ex
pressed its desire to hold tho Nebras
ka debate, upon condition that it tako
place some timo this semester. Scott
and Cameron wero appointed to lay tho
matter before the executive commit

1 A more Btrlngcnt rule regarding
men who apply for advanced standing
on tho strength of office experience
has been made this year They
