After the Qame.
The game was ended. Amid the wild
cheera of tho enthusiastic crowd Ne
braska's battered but triumphant war
riors trotted to tho gymnasium and into
tho locker room. Tho room was in
darkness, and tho fellows stumbled
around against the chairs and each
other, tho corks on their shoes click
ing on tho hard floor, calling impatient
ly for lights. Tho lights would not
turn on, but in a few seconds some
one brought a lantern, which lighted
up the motley group.
"Hey, you lobster. I guess wo cleaned
'em up," yelled a sturdy littlo Dutch
man, throwing his sweater at tho
trainer. "I've got by eyes on you,"
Bang a big husky fellow, shaking his
head like a young colt, to get the mane
of wet brown hair out of his eyes, and
grabbing a towel to snap at his neigh
bors. "Dad burn it! She'll bo glad to
see me tonight," exclaimed another,
sinking heavily into a chair. There
was a general laugh, and a bantering
voice cried, "Who?" "Why, my moth
er!" ho answered, his innocent blue
eyes wide with astonishment. "Don't
forget to put your suits away, gen
tlemen!' came old Jack's familiar ad
monition. "Aw! Do what you darned
please with that suit of mine, I don't
want it again. For Heaven's sake, kid,
B y As s
For four years Nebraska has played
with teams that were In tho Big Nine.
Tho first game was with Minnesota,
when wo wero defeated by a score of
20 to 12. Wo should have won that
year, but there were two or three weak
spots in tho team; our handling of
punts was poor wo did not have a
good punter" and the team went into
tho gamo with a sort of stage fright
that handicapped their game during the
first half. The next year we played
both Minnesota and Wisconsin. Min
nesota defeated us 19 to 0 and Wiscon
sin 18 to 0. In both games Nebraska
played them to a standstill during the
first half, but superior methods of
training won those games in the sec
ond half. Lost year Nebraska won
from Minnesota to 0 and from North
western 12 to 0, and this year from
Iowa 17 to 6 and from Illinois 16 to 0.

Tho end of the Thanksgiving gamo
was marked by a rather interesting
incident. This consisted entirely in tho
appearanco of tho men, as they camo
trotting from tho field, bruised, bleed
ing and begrimed after their hard bat
tle with Illinois. An expression of
Joy, that combined both rollof and ela
tion was visible on tholr faces, and
every liniament silently voiced a com
mon sentiment, "We are glad it is
over." Well might they bo glad. Now
that thoy can oat their own moals In
peace without dreading lest some for
bidden creation of tho cook's ingenuity
work havoc with their nervous system
and render them unfit to stand tho
strain under tho pressure entailed In
a hard game. Now thoy are free to
spend the evenings as they please
that is, to turn in and enjoy a long and
blissful repose as all University men
do. No longer do they need to conform
themselves to stringent rules of ex
orcise. They can grow fat and lazy,
and it will bo no ono'B business but
their own. They have earned1 their
glory and can rest on their honors.
After awhile thoy will become ab
sorbed into the great commonality, but
their deeds will bo constantly called
to mind', and although as individuals
they may move in a less prominent
way, their records will live after
The red-hot rootor was talking furi
ously: "These fellows who view the
game frpm second-story windows will
make splendid financiers. When they
got hold of some coin a force of men
with crow-bars can't pry it away from
thom. Thoy pinch tholr coin bo hard
that utoy make dents in it with their
finger nails. It would bo such a sac
rifice for them to pay tholr way in
and act decent that no ono has tho
heart to ask thom to do It. Besides,
such a thing would bo dangorous to
their physical welfare But I am really
sorry that they tako things bo serious
ly. Thoy are the kind of followB that
would sometimes open their hearts and
offer to tako hor to a show If sho will
pay half on hor own ticket. But it Is
Boldom that they oven do thiB. Now, of
course, I want it distinctly understood
that thiB refers only to those who have
special places at tho windows char
tered and habitually occupy thom. I
guoBB that's all I caro to Bay on tho
subject and I think maybo it's onough."
At ono of tho games while Jack Best
was ambling across tho fleldi, smiling
good riaturedly in responso to the
cheers for his benefit sent up from tho
rooting section, ono fair Freshman co
ed startled thoao about her by ex
claiming: "Why, I nevor know Coach Booth
