The team work of the 'Varsity was
by far the best exhibited this year.
The men found alarmingly strong in
terference, never stopping for any
thing. Every man was In a play. If
a player tumbled he was picked up
and pulled on. Many times several
yards were made this way when it
seemed the ball was down. In short,
Nebraska played with vim and science.
The men seemed to enjoy being where
they were. The line punching was
wonderful. The man carrying the ball
always found support from behind
which makes line-bucking a success.
Great breaches were opened through
which Nebraska halves plunged again
and jigain for yards. Doane did not
expect to win. They came up to do the
best they could. The Collegians were
much younger and lighter, some being
mere bos. They played good ball,
but mostly on the defensive. Fuller
at full made several fine punts. He.
Captain Fuhrer and Houston were
easily the .stars for Doane. Only once
during the game did Doane make yards
Several times through miserable fum
bles by Nebraska they got the ball,
but each time were forced to kick.

olden time" style, never failing to
plunge on through scattering players

sure aim, but mixed signals once or
twice. He caught punts fine. Voss
at center played steady and sure. Brew
put up hisiisual sure game at guard,
while Toblu played a voteran guard
on the other- side. Captain Westover
and Stringer are the fastest tackles in
the west and lived up to their record
in Saturday's game.
Shedd at left end played well. Shedd
wasdiurt in the first half and Bonder
replaced him. Benny made some
startling runs and never failed to gain
through line or around end.

chose the north goal with a slight wind
at his back. Stringer kicked off for
