Football Squad Will Loavo To-day

But Silent. Team in Goo 4
This afternoon at 1:45 the Nebras
ka football squad,- fifteen strong will
icavo for Mil waukee where they will
meet tho defenders or the cardinal
Saturday. Tho partv will be made up
as follows: Cortolyou, Captain West

CHShcdd. Drain. Bender, Pillsbury,
Crandall, Kingsbury, G. Shedd, Bell
and Eager. Coaob Booth, Manager
Cowglll, julbrarlan Wver and Dr.
Beachley will accompany the team.
While the momoors of tho squad
arc confident of putting up a good

very reticent as to the outcome of
the game. The game with Kansas

thi sract 'the large score
and in
run up
against her may be accounted for.
The -yk on tho gridiron during
the p, week has developed Nebras
ka's defense wonaerfully. The scrubs
instead of scoring as they did last
week have been hold for downs re
peatbdlv. Work on the offensive has
also been gratifying to tne Nebraksa
rooters. Everything considered Ne
braska goes to Wisconsin in much
better ccindltlon than she went to
Practice at Wisconsin has been
secret for tho past week or so. Their
time has been devotea mainly to te
stopping of mass plays so much used
by the Minnesota team. Punting
will undoubtedly be a feature of Sat
urday's game on both sides.
DTipatorreBto-tbo-6hIoaao Record -Herald
lvo tho .following account of
practice at Wisconsin:
Tho Wisconsin TootDall team -was
given another drill in stopping mass
plays In tho practice this afteroon
and succeeded only indifferently.
After about half an hour of punting
and signal practice the varsity
kicked off to the1 scrubs and the
latter using tho mass plays, which
are expected from Minnesota, pushed
the ball across the field to within five
-yards-ot the yarsltygoal. There they
were stopped, and, although given
eight or nine trials, were unablo to
get it over. Then tha ball went to
the varsity and the latter carried it
-back until Juneau made a long run
around tho end for a "touchdown. Af
ter the next kick-off tho sorubs again
tried tbo mass plays, but this time
the varlBty held them, and they wore
unable to make material gains. Fogg
is still laid up with an injured knee,
and Marshall played quarter back,
MotTatt was at full back in Driver's
placo and Abercrombie at left half in
place of Coohoms.
Offers of any amount of even money
are coming from Minnesota for the
badger-gopher game, Nov. 10, but
the Wisoonsins backers want odds.
Tho Minnesota eleven was sent
through an hour's hard practice this
afternoon by Dr. Williams. Tho ex
cessive heat affected tho mon and
tho play was lacking In snap, but the
offense worked smoothly and the
varlsty had a comparatively easy
time with tho soruos.
Soliaoht and Mueller, each of whom
sustained an injury to a shoulder
Saturday, will pobably not be lu tho
game for several a ays, and nelthor Is
llkolv to play Saturday against the
Haskell Indians. Thorpe will prob;
ably bo played In Hchacht's place .at
right tackle, while Ricker or Jonson
may bo selected to take Mueller's
place at right guard. Boeokman,
whoso Injured knee has been bother
ing him since Saturday's game, went
through the signals with the varlsty.
The game between Belolt and Kan
sas University played on Belolt
.rounds ended without a score by
either team.
Twice tho Kansans advanced the
ball to the Beloit ten yard line and
both times lost it on downs. Tbo
Boloit playors succeeded twice in
reaching their opponents ten yard
line but there they were hold for
downs. They also tried for a goal
from the field but the plav was block
ed and tho ball was given to Kansas.
Tho "guards halfback" formation,
which was expeoted to sweep th e
Beloit players down tbe field before
it, had Its greatest success in the
first ten minutes of tbe play. Artor
that tho Boloit men solved it, and
frequently dropped tho runner In his
tracks. The teams wero about even
ly matched. But had Bo'olt's
offense been equal to hor perrect de
fense she would have scored several
Lino bucks were tried through the
heavy Kansas lino by Captain
Bunge, Merrill, Smith and, Slater
but tho gains wero short. McRao
and Crane broke through the Kansas
ends twice for llfteon-yard runs, but
other attempts resulted In no gain

Iowa's board of athletic" control
has unanimously nndorsea tbe action
of tbo olegiblilty commlttoe in rul
ing Quarter Back Williams out of the
recent Iowa-Minnesota football game.
It was decided, however, to call a
meeting of tbo conference colleges In
Chloago for Saturday, Nov. 2, to
make a final ruling on Williams'
case. Charles uenbam of Lorlmer,
tis, D., with WJhgfflJ&UlAJQI wasem
ployed as a drug olerk. has made""auT
davit that Williams received no com
pensation for playing on the Lorimor
baseball team and further investiga
tion may jot reveal the fact that the
disqualification of tho captain Is un
justified. Until tbo Conference Colleges re
port, Wiliams will bo kept out of tho
game. It is feared that the retire
ment of Williams will permanently
cripple tbe Iowa team as- ho was tho
field general and star player for tbe
team. Williams Is severely censured by
the 8tuoent body at Iowa City for
doing anything that would raise the
question of his eleglblifty after tak
ing the placo as captain oLtbe team.
