One Thousand Excursionists Leave
for the Big Game Football
Team Given an
The Nebraska football team left
yesterday afternoon at 1:45 for Min
neapolis full of determination to do
everything that can be done to wrest
victory from the Gophers Saturday
afternoon. They were accompanied
to the train by a largo number of
rooters who gave them a good old- t
fashioned sond-off. The party. In
cluding Coach Booth. Assistant Coach
Melford and Trainer Best, was made
up of about twenty men. They will
roach Minneapolis tomorrow morning
about 8 o'clock.
One thousand people were started
on their way to the big game yester
day afternoon. Two long trains were
required to haul them. The indica
tions are that as many more will go
It was tho Intention to run but one
special train yesterday. It was
thought that It would accommodate all
who cared to pay the extra rate of four
dollars for the privilege of staying In
Minneapolis a day longer than thd
three dollar rate allows. The error
of this supposition was plainly to be
seen long before the first section pulled
out at 5:30. The Northwestern offi
cials at once made arrangements for
a second train to leave at 6:30.
It 13 estimated that 700 people were
on the first section and close to 300 on
the second. It was supposed that this
would be the smaller part'of the crowd.
The Indications are that as many more
people will leave today. The city has
been full of strangers all day. They
have come In to take advantage of
the rate. From the time the North
western office was opened yesterday
morning until It closed last night It
was crowded with a throng of people
waiting to buy tickets. The clerks in
the office were so busy that they ab
solutely refused to answer telephone
The train tonight will leave at 6:30
and will get into Minneapolis by
breakfast time Saturday morning. The
return train will leave Minneapolis at
7 a. m. Sunday, arriving In Lincoln
early In the evening. The three dol
lar rate does not give sleeper privil
eges. It a sleeper is desired the four
dollar rate must be paid.
It is expected that the train this
evening will be run In two sections.
Every care is being taken by the offi
cials to provide for the comfort of the
One of the most enthusiastic mass
meetings ever held at the University
was conducted yesterday forenoon in
the chapel. The room was well filled
and everyone present gave evidence of
a determination to do all that can be
done by rooting to win a victory to
morrow. Chancellor Andrews opened the
meeting with some well timed advice
and admonitions. He said he ex
pected the team to win the game. He
said he had a strong pair of lungs and
would use them to their full capacity
to help the team to victory. While
he was deeply interested in the team
he declared he was more Interested In
maintaining the good name of the
University. He ured evoryonc to Bee
thnt the good name of the University
did not become a worse name. The
welfare of the University, ho said, was
more in the keeping of the students
than of the faculty or regents. Ho ad
monished all to be especially careful
on the way so that if the team comes
back on the shield instead of bearing
It the University will have won a vic
tory by Its demeanor.
The Chancellor said that It was not
in accordance with his ethical code to
travel on Sunday and he was not
sure whether this return trip was Justi

see that the decorum of the day was
Professor Wyer explained that as
the Rock Island had thrown up the
contract with the athletic board, the
Northwestern was the official road.
On behalf of the team he urged that
rooters see that they do not disturb
the plays of the Minnesota team by
rooting while the play was going on.
He designated such action as ungentle-

good plays by either Bide be ap
plauded. Professor Caldwell said, "Lot us go,
have a good time, win the victory and
come back with the scalps ,of the
Gophers at our belts." He also urged
that conduct fitting to the day be the
rule on the return trip Sunday.
After the addresses Head Rooter
Teach was called forward and fifteen
minutes of rooting and singing were
put in.
Altogether the meeting shows that
Nebraska will not take a back seat this
year when it comes to rooting. Printed
slips have been prepared containing
the official song and will be used to
day and tomorrow.
