Outlook Favorable for Game With
Minnesota Next Year.
Negotiations are now under way
which may result in a game between
Nebraska and Minnesota next year.
Manager Buckner haB been correspond
ing with D. Williams of Minnesota,
and has received a very favorable as
surance as to the prospects of anang
lng a game. If the game can be sc
cured It will bo played- In Minneapolis.
The athletic relations between Michi
gan and Minnesota have not been of
the friendliest character, and It Is quite
likely that the two toams will not meet
next ,year, In which event Nebraska
will have an opportunity to meet her
old-time rival in another battle for su
premacy. The game would be played
early in the season, as a later date could
hardly be arranged now. A game with
Minnesota would gladden the hearts of
our football enthusiasts and thrill them
with anticipation' at the thought; of
another cln&h with o.ir strong northern
Games have alrca'dy been arranged

game will be played at Kansas City.
All the dates have not been adjusted or

also under way for a game with Knox
A gain - with Minnesota would be a
welcome addition to an alrrady strong
liicdule. We would have a (Iihihc tor
a lgorous comparison of ineiits with
the. team that has so strong a laiin
upon the western championship, and
an opportunity would be given for test
ing our true standing. Whether we
could repeat our achievement of 1902 Is
of course uncertain, and the result
could be better BiirmlBed after the game
has been plajed. We have already
proved- our- ability to travel in fast
company by a number of decisive vic
tories, and no team In this part of the

A better class of games than meet

could hardly be arranged. The Haskell
Indian game, too, will be a strong one.
We will mls3 them from 0111 grounds
next year, but a lltting substitute will
be provided. The game ur Kansas City
will undoubtedly prove an attraction

Casper Whitney, editor of the Out
ing, regales his readeis with a bit-of
ignorance under the heading "Nebras
ka Ostracized," somewhat as follows:
"In that group of western colleges near
the Missouri Nebraska has shown most
progress lii football skill, bin least in
athletic decency. This year, emulating
Chicago. It played two ox-membois of
professional baseball teams, but the
colleges In that section, having no com
plaisant conference conimlttcv. and real
legard for the wlipjeomeness ot the
ppoit, severed rotations with Nebraska.
It is not so Jong ago that all in this
section wore tarred with the same
brush, but there has been earnest work
by friends of honest sport at Kansas,
Iowa, and Missouri, and as a result the
atmosphere has .been denied largely."
And for this In his ranking of the vari
ous1 teams, poor Chicago and Nebraska
are omitted1. Of course this layk of
paper Is all that a college strives for.

It would seem from this statement that
Nebraska went through the season
without on opponent, for "the colleges
In that section severed relations with
Nebraska." Kansas, piqued by con
stant defeat, did this, and Whitney, ar
guing apparently that what is true of
a pait Is true of the whole, sent us
through '03 without any opponents.
From his vantage ground in the lar
east perhaps he did not consider. Iowa.

name of Nebraska's opponents, but
doubtless the teams at point will hntdly

Tact that the I'lilveisny of Kansas
closed a little earlier than had been
anticipated here. Nebtaska's telegram
bearing on that point did not arrive
thoie until seveial bonis after the de
bating council had separated.
The preliminaries lor the Inteistnte
debates will be held in February. A
large number Of promising meii are
expecting to show up.
Additional Information has been re
ceived regarding the success achieved
by Cecil North, who won a place on the
dsLating team at the University of Chl
cugo. Chicago Is a member of the
Central League, comprising besides It
beif Northwestern, Michigan and Min
i.esota. There is only one debating
team appointed there each year. The
flist debate will be with Northwestern,
In January, and If Chicago wins, she
will meet one of the other two inem
beis of the league. Hence tluie is
special distinction in winning a plan
on the debate at Chicago. Mi North
has received In addition to the honor
a $170 prize, which includes $12u tuition
and $5(1 cash. Dr. Chandler or tli- Eng
lish department at-eiiicago. writes that
North has shown up strongly.
In wiitlug to friends here Mr North
says: "The University is not expecting
us to win on our side of the epieUnr
but we will die game If we have to die.

if a game is arranged with her It will
be played here. At present our man
agement contemplates both an eastern

trip lor them, although nothing has yet
been definitely settled. The northern
trip would Include such teams as the
