Line Repeatedly. Score
64 to 0.
It took just two minutes and forty
seconds for the University to score Its
first touch-down against Grand iBlnnd

how tho game would result, but hard
ly such a Bcore as was made fit to 0.

Tho visitors piovrd to be txcept Ion
ally weak In many of tho most Im
portant places, while the University
was strong throughout the entire team
Many of the Grand Island men were
now to tho game, this being the first
year for n number of their line men
Tho team ns a whole was weak on
tackling, only two or three men were
able to make any showing at all
fV Tho University started out with Its
strongest men in the line, but as soon
as Coach Booth saw how the game
was going he gave the new men a
chance to prove their metal
Tho work of the team was excellent
Tholr playing was very noticeably free
from those errors and faults which so
often fall to the lot of a (earn early
in the season
In tho early pait of the game Jim
Bell played full, but Inter was trans
ferred to half and Clark went In at
full. Tho back field did splendid work,
skirting the ends for twenty and thirty
yards and hitting the line for long
Benedict proved his ability as a first
class halfback, in the mom comroendn
blo stylo. His long run and sensation r
al hurdlo over a would-bo tackier, was
onp of tho features of the gamo
Marsh took Benedict's place at half
during tho latter part of tho game and
mnde sensational gains, both through
tho lino and around the ends.
Brlggs, who went in ut half in Bell's
place during part of the last half, made

a heavy man and will make a strong
line plunger with a little coaching
Bender at quarter ran his toam lu
a way which won for him the admira
tion of-all present As no quarterback
playB wore developed he had no oppor
tunity for carrying tho bull, except on
returning punts He received the bull
on Ills own live jards lino from a kick
and carried It the entire length of the
field for a touch-down, equullng Bene

Eager and Colliding started in the
gamo at ends nnd played u strong,

the positions for the second half
In tho lino Huntor and Borg and
Ieah hold tho central positions. Rob
