Nebraska won from tin Indians
but. what a scare. 18 to lo. And the
18 made in the last twenty minutes
of play. It looked mighty cloudy for
Nebraska for a while but Mender,
Drain and the, team dispelled the
shadows, letting in a Hood of sunshine
at the right time. Three hara earned
t inch downs with as many goais
made the score for Nebraska while
two Meld goals of tho mighty Main
figured up the 10 points of the Red
men. It was a whirlwind rally ou
the Corr.husker's side and a cyclone
" collapse of the Indians that brought
about the pleasing linale to what, up
to the last fifteen minutes of piay,
looked like sure defeat lor Nebraska.
During tho early stae of play it
looked Haskell from every side.
The nam ted chiefs equalled the
Cornhuskers on offense as well as di -tense
and punting The condition of
the Nebraska team told in the long
i mi and when the end of the tight
approachid a shadow ot dillerence
became apparent It lapiuh became
ti plainer and the balance so long tilted
on the Indian's sine shitted where it
belonged and wheie it finally rested.
The Indians could do nothing, with
thn punches ana rushes of the white
men. It was one sioed for fifteen
minutes at least. During the first
half Haskell scored her all, 10 points,
one of Main's kicks being from the
riiirt.v-five. vnid line. Twice during
the half Nebraska cairied tho pig
skin within the ten yard line and on
the second occasion the ball was all
but over, Deing on the 1 yard line.
Ueferee McDonald got In his little
ponaltv once, giving the ball to. .the
Indians, while it was lost on downs
the second time. Nebraska was
strong on offense bill the Indians
played great ball.
Then came the second, the phenom
inal, the sensational, the wonderful
second Haskell kicked off lo Drain
who returned the ball thirty yards.
It was a keen well blocked urn thai
pleased the crowd. Till punted far
down tho Held and soon by enn runs
and line plunges Nebraska had the
ball on tho Indians 1 yard line. Till
was sent o?er through the line. JIo
.says he yelled "down" but Kefreee
McDonald did not near him and as
tho ball was pushed back onto the
field oy the hair crazed warriors, it
was theirs on downs. Nebraska de
served this credit. This was one of
McDonald's acts that made him ex
tremely unpopular with everybody.
Tho Indians kicked out of danger.
Again the Cornhuskers toiled until
& the ball rested within ti inches of tho
Scoring line when tho Indians held
for downs. They punted. Then Ne
braska for tho third time began a
march. This time the Red men
could not check the plays and Pill
waB finally sent over 15 minutes be
fore the tinaj call of time. Drain
kicked coal. Tho crowded bleachers,
tho packed grand-stand aiose to a man
and yelied and howled itself hoarse.
Then tno Cornhuskers buckled In
harder than ever and, mighty In every
play, soon made another touch down,
Hell being pushed over. Drain kicked
a second goal. Score 12 to 10. Ne

This has been the most successful
year Nebrsaka has ever experienced
in athletics, particularly in football.
The start was made last fall when
the athletic board treasury ended the
season actually out of debt and even
had a small nest egg on hand ror
A football season is not successful
unless the results financially are en
tiiely satisfactory The total am. -tint
of receipts for this season amounts
to $ Of this $1,000 has been ex
pended leaving a net amount in the
treasury ot $ above all expendi
tures for the year. This amount will
play no unimportant feature in next
years season.
Of the $1,000 expended. $1,000 was
used in the erection of the new grand
stano; $."IK) was used in the erection
of the new board fenco around the
field, ano tho improved semaphore;
the remainder was expended in salar
ies ror the coaches, team outfitting,
medical attendance, training taule,
advertising and other expenses in
cluded in tho campaign.
With tho present prospects, next
year's season will, or ought to be more
successful than the one just ended.
Games have practically been sched

Spoaka to tho Young Men of the

Chancellor Andrews spoke yesterday
afternoon to the oung men of the
University in I ho new chapel ano was
heard by a goul audience of students
and University prOfessjrs.
Dr Andrews in Ills opening words
spoke of tho place the theories or
Huxley. Darwin and auostics held
and had held In public opinion. Kn
larglng on their Ideas lie mentioned
that even Iluvloy says that we
should not atllrm that there lisno
God, ano scientific men as a rule do
not say that the existence of a God
should lie denied
"The rational attitude that man
should have toward religion is the
rational attitude. If a man wants
ti respect his lire and the oest that
is In him, lie should have a thought
of God. Religion Is the true attitude
and agnostici'.tn lb not good ror man.
Tn ore are u lew who always romtnrt
themselves with the supp sed fact
that the difficulties that present
themselves to man are naturally done
away Can we believe thatv Can we
sa that a God lias not guided some
or out great men and led tlicrnv
"The banishment of God from this
world does not take away the pros
pects or a new wot Id. This Is a sad
world and full or pain, but in the
hope ror a ruturo new world arter
our existenco here, nothing better
could bo olTered unless we oelievc
there was a God. It is natural ror a
man to believe that God guides uti
and will guide us Into the next world.
''My the hypothesis "T Darwin, it Is
Uj some extent an accepted fact that
ir it be true, the religion or God is
not true. This point of view may be
found among those who have not
giver! it deep thought or among the
young. Hut tnere is no basis to that
conclusion. The Darwin hypothesis
is true as long as biological science is
concerned but tor a general hypothe
sis it cannot apply "to everything.
No account can be made or the leap
from Inorganic to tho organic with
out the thought ol a supreme maker
or God. Darwin hud only to do with
how there was an evolution, out -rut
what the cause )l that evolution was.
It has never been determined. You
need aJpd as much after the concep
tion of religion as before that-conccp-tlon.

to guide men's lives and develop
