Good A One Day
The B. & M. has seen fit to reduce
the rate for the St. Joseph trip from
?2.95 to 2.B0. The special train leaves
Lincoln about 7: 15 In the morning and
arrives at St. Joseph in time for din
ner. On the return trip the train will
lcavo St. Joseph about 7 p. m., arriv
ing in Lincoln about midnight.
This is a good rate and a large num
ber will undoubtedly take advantage of
it. Tho trip means a ride of about 300
miles. There is not limit, but the
road is anxious to have those who in
tend to go purchase tickets today.
While the team expect to defeat Mis
souri handily, yet the game will be In
teresting, and this will be the last op
portunity to see the team that defeated
Minnesota play away from home. There
was no excursion to Boulder or to Min
neapolis. Now is the time to take a
good trip, at a reasonable rate.
Tho regular fare for the round trip
to St, Joseph is $9.40.
It was rumored around the campus
last evening that the railroads were
considering a further reduction. It did
not materialize, however, at the last
Scrubs Do Good Work.
The team went through a short prac

The scrubs played very fierce foot
ball and scored on the first team after
pushing the ball down the field by
straight lino bucks. The first team did
not play with its usual spirit and ag
gressiveness. Tho scrubs will go to Omaha Sat

thoy play as good ball as they have

LARGE CROWD SEES THE SCRUBS

WVe Northwestern second eleven at

Sophs Beat Academy.
The Academy team played the Sophs
a game of fifteen minute halves yester
day afternoon. Although outclassed,
the Preps managed to put up a good
game of ball and held their opponents
down to 1C to 5.
The Sophs kicked off to the Acade
my's 5 yard line. They returned three
and fumbled, but managed to keep the
ball. The Academy punted and the
Sophs lost on a fumble. The Academy
lost tho ball in their turn and It rolled
behind the line, where Lehmer fell on
The Academy kicked to the 5 yard
line and after a series of 15 yard runs
by Lehmer and Burg, the full back
went over the line for a touch down.
Then the Academy got in their work
and Stein, quarter back, kicked a goal
from the 20 yard line. In the Becond
half the Sophs made one more touchdown.
Coach Williams Criticised.
The sporting editors of Minneapolis
have been rubbing it into Coach Wil
liams of Minnesota, blaming him In
large part for Minnesota's defeat last
Saturday. These critical remarks
have brought out decided objections by
the students. In a recent issue of the
daily paper of that institution they
show that thoy have no conception of
Coach Williams' liability for the work
of the team. Each member comes out
with a statement of his estimate of
Vvilllams and also alumni make state
ments bucking up the position taken by
the student body.
Coach Williams is Inclined to resent
the criticism which has been leveled
at him, and 1b not to be blamed for so
doing. While the coach figures in the
successes or failures of a team It can
not all be placed to his account. Min
nesota Is now trying to Bhow Its loyalty
to him, the team and athletics in gen
eral, to show its appreciation of his
