The Kansas City papers are devoting
more space to the football news con
cerning Nebraska. One of them had
the following to say about the game
"The Haskell Indians do not feel
that they got the sportsmanlike treat
ment at the hands of Nebraska that
they were entitled to and point to the
crippled condition of their team as a
proof of their charges.
"The Indians feel yet that their de
feat was in the nature of a fluke.
"They say they should have been vic
tors or that the score should have been
only f to 0 against them."
"Nebraska emerged from the Haskell
Indian game Saturday with flying col
ore. A determined offense and an al
most impregnable defense combined to
administer to the redmen a thorough
defeat. Haskell had four of the fa
,moiiB Carlisle team, the recruits hav
ing played against all of the big teams
in the. east and taken iart in victories
over Columbia, Cornell and Pennsyl
"Before the game the Indians had
no hesitancy in predicting that they
would win, and in true Indian fashion
entered In the play with a spirit of
recklessness which threatened to sweep
the Cornhuskers from their feet."
"A summary of the play discloses
the fact that Nebraska carried the ball
by straight play 465 yards, while the
Indians could advance it but 49 yards."
"Nebraska has a stronger team than
they can buck up against with success.
They are now going through active
practice in preparation for their game
with Texas next Saturday, to be played
KANSAS TRAINING INTERRUPTED.
The training of the Kansa3 team has
been interrupted this week so far on
account of the men going homo to
vote. It is stated that Guard Acker
man will play no more this season.
The Jayhawkers feel discouraged since
the Haskell game here and do not ex
pect to win, although hoping to score.
They admit they are considerably
.weaker than the Indians, and while
they do not expect to get run over
next Saturday, they have no hopes for
great success. The comparative
strength of Nebraska and Kansas and
the estimate of game results will pre
vent a large crowd from accompanlng
the Kansas team.
ADMISSION TO BIG NINE.
The Chicago Record-Herald pub
lishes a statement concerning the ad
mission of Nebraska to the "Big Nine."
It seems to be of the opinion that Ne
braska has some chances this year.
'The athletic authorities of the Uni
versity of Nebraska have decided to
again knock at the door of the "big
nine," the conference of universities
which governs western athletics, nnd
seek admission to that body. Two
years ago Nebraska made application,
and, although It had supporters, the
conference ruled adversely. This year,
however, the advocates of the western
school have assuiances of still further
aid, which, at tho outset, gives some
promise that the conference may rule
favorably on the application.
"A formal petition to the conference
is already on file with Professor Rog
ers, secretary of that body, and Mr.
Rogers personally has announced that
he would press Nebraska's case. Iowa
is reputed to be in line with her neigh
bor across tho Missouri rier, while
Wisconsin, which had a game on the
Cornhuskers' football schedule last
year and Is expected to renew It next
season, is nlso expected to help out.
"Relations with Northwestern were
established for the first time this sea
son, and tho aid of the Methodists, it
is belleed, will be forthcoming. Corn
husker baseball teams have played
against Purdue and Indiana for several
seasons, and Nebraska athletes are
strangeis only to Chicago, Illinois and
Michigan of the 'big nine." '
KANSAS CITY WANTS GAME.
The lovers of football about Kansas
Friday Night, Nov. 7th.
f RATERNITY HALL. - 8:45 P. M.
JOHN R. FORSYTHE, Chairman.
ROBERT WHITE, Master of Ceremonies.
City wish to hae some chance at first
hand of seeing football games In the
future. They are now putting in bids
for next year's season.
"Kansas City wants the Missouri
Nebraska game next year. The game
would undoubtedly be better attended
In Kansas City than It was In St. Joe,
and tho management might do well to
make tho change. Then, too, It would
bo more convenient for those who want
to attend from Columbia, as It would
bo possible to get a much better rate
than to St, Joe. People do not tire
of football, but tho more they see the
more they want to see. Every game
is something new and with three big
games In the city each year Interest In
tho college game ought to reach a high
point and tho Thanksgiving day con
test become more popular even than it
ever has been In the past."
Thero has been considerable talk
lately among the baseball men of or
ganizing an Indoor baseball team to
play during the winter months. While
indoor baseball is not very scientific,
It affords a great deal of exercise and
amusement Ad gets the men into prac
tice In a small Vay for Bprlng work.
BASKET BALL FUTURE
Prospects Good for a
Varsiry Girls' Team-
Teams Getting Ready
for the frav.
GIRI S' BASKET-BALL.
The outlook for girls' basket-ball
was never better than this season, nor
material for good teams more abun
dant. Moreover, the only time for reg
ular practice has been Wednesday from
2 till 15 o'clock, when the 'varsity and
tho second team hold forth In weekly
competition. This year tho armory Is
set apart dally from 1:30 until 2 for the
class teamB. The freshmen practice
Mondays, tho sophomores Tuesdays,
the juniors Thursdays and the seniors
Of the three events of last year, the
class tournament for the possession of
tho pennant, the game with a sister
state university, and tho Invitation
tournament for the trophy and the
Btate championship, the class tourna
ment, tried for the first time, roused
so high a degree of enthusiasm and
proved so exciting that It was decided
to make it the chief event of the year,
substituting It for tho state tourna
ment. It always took a great deal of
trouble and expense to arrange tho lat
ter, since it lasted several days, and
there were so many visiting teams to
bring and to entertain. Moreover, the
teams were no so evenly matched, tho
critical event being always the match
between tho 'varsity and tho Omaha
Y. W. C. A. team, which could as well
be made an event? by Itself. So tho
local events this year will bo the class
tournament, to bo played off some
time before Christmas, and a fiamo
with some outside team of noty, if pos
sible Minnesota, the latter match to
take place about February.
THE 'VARSITY TEAM.
Tho 'varsity will do its best this
year to uphold its record of never yet
having met defeat. At a meeting of
the team last week, Miss Elva Sly waa
elected captain for tho year. The posi
tion of captain of this team is the
highest "plum" in girls' athletics in
the university and Miss Sly deserves
the place by rollablo and conscientouH
plnylng and by experience. Sho is now
playing her third season on the team,
being tho only one left of tho notnblo
team of 1900-01. Miss Zora Shields,
now In her second season on tho 'var
sity, Is taking graduate work, and ho
la still eligible for her old position as
guard. Other members of last year's
team still In school aro MIhb Mlnnlo
.Tansa. who seems to be rather In doubt
whether sho will play basket-ball this
season, and Miss Alice Towno. Thoflo
plnyers received their apprenticeship
In basket-ball respectively on the Wa
hoo and tho Omaha high school teams.
Miss PlllBbury, lost year's captain, and
Miss Miller, captain for the two years
preceding, are not now in school.
Those promoted last week to fill their
places are Miss Edith Craig, tho bril
liant forward of tho junior team; Miss
Pearl Archibald, of the sophomoro
team, who will play center, nnd Miss
Cora Scott, another Junior. Miss
Scott's position Is guard, but sho
throwH and catches well, and has a
record of over four feet In high Jump
ing. Sho Ib now practicing goal throw
ing, and Is expected to do not less well
as forward or center than as guard.
Miss Louise Pound, who was captain
of the team In '97. and '98, and since
then has been manager and amateur
tralnor Of the team, was unanimously
re-elected to these positions.
THE CLASS TEAMS.
Tho senior team organized last week
and elected Miss Mlnnlo Guile captain.
Last year this class, which is rather
short of basket-ball players, came out
at tho low -ond of tho tournament.
This year tho presence Miss Guile,
who, when sho is in training, is one
of tho best players the university ever
produced, strengthens It materially,
and it Is likely to make a better show
ing. Those who have been out for
play so far aro Misses Cook and Sly,
guards; Misses Guile and Bowen, cen
ters; Misses Ballard and Schnefer,
forwards. Tho team lacks experience,
compared with the other class teams,
but has unlimited enthusiasm. It does
not expect, it says, to win tho pennant,
but will endeavor nevertheless to
teach tho lower classmen proper re
spect Tho Junior team wlllAe captained by
Miss Scott It has smmg guards in
Miss Scott and Miss McCutcheon, and
swift forwardsJh Miss Craig and Miss
Shinb. Miss Schlesinger and Miss
Mitchell, though neither is very tall,
aro active centers and experienced
players. Miss Mitchell takes the place
of Miss Conger, who is not now in
school. Last year this team lost tho
pennant only by a scratch, and at pres
ent 1b considered to have a very strong
chance of winning.
The sophomore team, last year's
champions, were the first to organize
this season, and to begin to practice.
Their captain Is Miss Pearl Archibald,
who succeeds "Miss Towne in this posi
tion. The personnel of the team is not
XSt (yHy determined, for the class has
abundance of strong players from
yjhom to choose. The team last year
was made up of Miss Towne, Miss Com-
