morrow. Nebraska will line up tomorrow for
what will probably be the hardeat
game of the year and speculation Is rife
n regard to the outcome Since North
western met defeat at the hands o;
Chicago and Knox, the Thanksgiving
game is no longer looked upon as the
one to be feared most, and local spoits
spend their time speculating on the
relative merits of the Redskins and the
So far this Bfjason, Illinois alone has
been able to cross the goal of thr
huBlcy warriors, and Missouri and
Washburn have felt the bitterness of
overwhelming defeat at their hand?.
Washburn succeeded in scoring against
them, but only at a distance of 17
yards, when the colored punter of the
Topeka team booted the pigskin
squarely between the posts. As yet Ne
braska Is without a score against her
and supporters of the scarlet and cream
have hopeB of keeping her record un
blemished for the rest of the season.
Nebraska occupies a position similar
to that of Minnesota before her contest
with the Cornhuskers. As a member
of the "Big Nine," Minnesota held a
position above Nebraska, and It was
her endeavor to keep It. As the inter
state champion of the west, Nebraska
is by right a step higher In the foot
ball world than the Haskell IndlanB,
and we may rely upon the Cornhuskers
to keep their position.
The Indians have been preparing for
this game ever since their defeat last
Thanksgiving. To come so near a vic
tory and then be baffled is a wound
painful to the heart of the Redskin, and,
only the balm of a victory tomorrow
will cure 1L All week they have been
going through strenuous practice,
equalled only by the practice that has
been going on behind closed doors and
on our own gridiron. Coach Outland
believes his team equal to Booth's in
all but team work and the practice
this week has been to overcome this
deficiency. Although Booth saw the
Washburn game, Outland still has a
few trumps concealed and will undoubt
edly play them tomorrow. Booth can
do the same, and many surprises will
be effected. The Indians have a repu
tation for tricky playing, over half
their touchdowns this year being made
In that way.
Captain Westover and his men are all
in excellent condition and prepared to
fight for their scalps until the last blow
of the whistle.
Since Cotton has quit practjee Hunter
has been playing his guard-, and will go
Into the game tomorrow. The rest of
the team will line up as UBiial. From
present prospects the crowd will be the
largest ever on the field, with the ex
ception perhaps of the Thanksgiving
games. Reserved seats are going fast
and will undoubtedly all be sold.
Good ream Practice.
The last hard practice of the week
was held yesterday and the work was
indeed excellent. Tho varsity went
through a stiff signal practice before
lining up against the scrubs and It was
the most spirited that has been seen
this year. The men kept right after
the ball and executed the plays In such
nn admirable manner as to win the np
1 Inuse of the large crowd that was per
mitted to witness the beginning of the
Iiactlce. There were very few delays
1 nd but a few trivial mistakes. The
team work showed much improvement
over what It has been doing the past
week and that is saying a good deal.
The men entered into the work with
1 rue football spirit and the determina
t on to make the most out of the prac
tice. After the signal practice the team
lined up against the Bcrubs and the
way the ball was pushed down the field
was Indeed gratifying. The men real
ize that they are going to have a hard
game, but they are determined to win
it and do not intend to enter the con
test without being well prepared. Any
one who saw the practice last night
can not help but feel that the team will
come Out of Saturday's fray with glory

sents. Rooters' Sections.
Arrangements have been made to
take care of the rooters In Saturday's
game. Rooting has won many a eon
test and a winning team has often been
brought about by side line help.
Saturday there will be checked off
two booths, one on each side of the
band directly in the center of the east
bleachers. These reservations can be
entered only by men who have mega
phones, and mean business men who
will yell when commanded, and be si
lent until that time. Scattering kl-yls
will be called down. A good rooting
squad is a pride In eastern colleges and
the management has determined to
treat a good squad right on Nebraska
field. Remember reserved seats can
I be bought by a megaphone and a little
cheering. Bring the megaphones and
be prepared to use them.
