CORNHUSKERS fjlVEN GREAT OVATION
Nebraska's Defeated Foot Ball Champions Accorded
Wonderful Reception by Student Body. ;
Classes are Deserted Galore by Students Who ore Anxious to Show
Their Appreciation of the Team's Great Battle.
Such a reception under such circum
stances, as was given Captain Bene
dict and the varsity on their return
from their superhuman fight at Colo
rado yesterday has never before been
given a football team at Nebraska. To
the outsider It seemed that the Corn
huskers were being given an ovation
for a glorious victory and they were.
The fact that the score was six to
nothing, not In Nebraska's favor, was
forgotten by every loyal Nebraskan;
but the weakened condition of the
men, the unbearable altitude and the
game flgnt of the team were not for
gotten, and It was the victory
over overwhelming circumstances that
brought tears to many of us, and a
husklness to the throats of the rooters
when the battle-scarred heroes who so
gallantly upheld the honor of the scar
let and cream returned to Nebraska.
Eager to show the error of C6ach
Booth's words that Nebraska hadn't
enough school spirit fuliy OoO students
were on hand when the team was
due, and the crowd constantly. In
creased until the Rock Island station
was fairly Jammed. A tally-ho, dec
orated in scarlet and cream with 200
feet of rope attached, was, lii spite of
baggagemen's objection, run upon the
station platform, in readiness for the
team. The train from the west was
late, but enthusiasm grow until It
fairly oozed out of one's finger tips.
Various members of the faculty, In
cluding Professors Condra, Clements,
Emerson. Richards and Lucky mount
ed the band wagon and dropped re
marks calculated to show their hearts
were In tho right place. OM Nebraska
men In the crowd talked, as did Mr.
Richardson, of Hebron, one of the
legislators In '95, who tried to have
the university treated better along ap
propriation lines. President King of
oberlln spoke, nnd was greeted with
the Oberlln cheer. A. Chicago Lnlver
alty m"an was discovered In the crowds
pulled from the west-bound train, and
given a chance to rellove his mind.
Just then the train bearing Ihe team
came In from the west. Through the
vestibule of the train obstructing, Jhe
crowd burst The Cornhuskers were
not allowed to touch ground, but were
hoisted to tho shoulders xt houtltig
rooter3, yelling themselvcs-hoarse, and
in this bedlam, which told of the loy
alty of every Nebraskan and of their
undying faith in the team, Coacli
Booth and his proteges were started
for the university, drawn by a thou
sand cheering, singing rooters, with
th3 loyal remnants of the band, headed
by old reliable "Pep" at tho head. The
procession moved up 0 street to 12th,
where, through the kindness and truo
spiritedness of Florest C, H. Frey,
hundreds of carnations wore showered
on the passing teami The varsity was
.K taken amidst one continuous blast of
chfcers, to tho training table, and the
rooters went back to work. (
On the way up from the train, some
shqrt-slghted individual asked what
v.all the noise and fuss was being made
Over a defeated teajou tHe was at
tended to by a forturiate few and the
reception continued. Possibly If the
rooters had stoppedtq thinii that we
weren't' victorious 'tlie volume of nolBe
might have been lessened, but such
things were not though of. The team
had gono away from home In a crip
pled condition, two weeks behind In
training and fought a splendid fight
at an altitude 4,000 feet above Lincoln,
where there Isn't enough air for half
a good Cornhusker. These things in
the students' eyes were Victory, and
these things spurred every rooter on to
yell his lungs to pieces.
Now that we have shown Coach
Booth that Nebraska has spirit to burn,
by burning some of It. let us burn
some more. Tho varsity Is oyt for
blood the blood of everybody pervy
enough to tackle them from now on,
and the bleachers should be filled every
night, rain or Bhlne, to aid them.
Details of the game are to be found
in another column. Colorado did a.
very unsportsmanlike thing In Insist
ing on 35-mlnute halves, but they seem
to take tho right view of It and say
they were wrong. In the Interest of
amicable relations It Is to be hoped
they not only think so, but say so.
It seems to be pretty generally felt
among the students that we should
bring Colorado hero, hereafter. Instead
of going there, where, beside a good
team, we have to buck the elements.
After it was over Coo eh Booth, repent
ing somewhat of his remark about a
lack of spirit, said:
"We can't tell -how wo appreciate
the way you received us," which was a
good deal for taciturn "Bummle"
ball In mid-field. By superhuman ef
forts the ball was forced to Colorado's
4-yard lino, whore it was again lost
Caley punted out for Colorado and
tho punt was soon returned by Bene
dict from Colorado's 40-yard line. Colo
rado slowly worked the ball back, and
the half ended with It in her possession
on her 33-yard lino.
Nebraska failed to gain after tho
kick-off, and punted to Caley on his
5-yartfetaarkrs from .which he gained
six, Colorado punted. From the 4-yard-line
Nebraska onco more carried th'6
ball cIobo in towards a Bcore. Olon
Mason cnrrled tho ball twonty-fivo
yards around left ond to Colorado's p--qano

down. Mason was stopped completely
on line bucks, and Colorado tho second
time took the ball on downs only four
yards out. Caley kicked to mldflold.
Borg went out with a sprained nnklo,
and Rlchrdson replaced hlnj.
Colorado's punt was" again returned
by Benedict and Johnsdp securod tho
bnll on a fumble on Colorado's ll-yard
line. For tho third time Colorado hold
for downs. From this tlmo till tho
end of the game tho ball sea-saw.cd
back and forth between tho two toams,

'08 CLASS TO ORGANIZE
Tho Freshmen Will Meet This
Morning to Elect Officers.
This morning at chapel tlmo the
Froshman class will meet for organ
ization nnd election of officers in Me
morial Hall. Tho meeting will bo con
ducted, as reported In last; (Saturday's
Nebraskan. Mr. lawrontfo Bidwell, ac
cording to the. plans announced at the
tlmo of our gbing to press, will preside
nnd Chancellor Andrews will bo on
hand to 'prevent any unruly proceed
ings from Sophomores or others too
boistrously Inclined. No Sophomores
are 'to Do admitted and whatever aid
tho Frcshmon require In getting things
moving will be furnished by the upper
classmen. The executive office Informs
us that no violence of any kind will
bo permitted, and nnyono who attempts
It Is liable to get Into hot water.
Developments up to the tlmo wo go
to press seem to show A. Swonsen of
Omaha In tho lead, with A. H. Miller,
a former academy student, close after
him, while two Lincoln high school
men aro contesting for tho honors with
a good substantial following. No
definite predictions can bo entertained,
howqver. as to the outcome of tho
political startegy, but it Is supposed
that tho managers of tho Lincoln high
school and tho academy candidates will
arrive 'ktPa compromising basis In ordor
to defeat the Omaha man. If this bit
of wirepulling 1b effected tho chances
aro that a Lincoln man will bo chosen
as tho chief executive; on the other
hand, if Mr. Swenson can pull his
home vote and manipulate the Inde
pendent voters, which seems quite pos
sible, he will make an Interesting
STORY OF THE GAME.
How the Cornhuskers Fought
Against Altitude and Luck.
Nebraska won the toss and took the
north goal. Caley kicked off at 2:50
to Bender. Colorado was penalized
fie yards for off-side- and Benedict
punted thirty yards to Owens. With
the ball at mldfieldt Caley. plunged six
yards through right guard. Johnson
faijed to gain around tho ond, and
Caley punted thirty yards to Benedict,
who regained eight and made the fatal
fumble of the game on his 30-yard
From Mils point Colorado carried the
ball by straight line bucks across Ne
braska's goal, in eight and oncphalf
minutes of play. Caley' made both
touchdown and goal
On tho second down after tho kick
off Bender got past Leavitt for tho
most sensational run of tho game. He
ran over forty yards, and placed tho
ball in mldflold. From there the ball
was cnrrled to Colorado's 33-yard line,
where Colorado held for downs. An
exchange of punts gavo Nobraska the

A DISTINGUISHED GUEST.
President King, of Oberlin Uni
versity Addresses Students.
Yesterday morning at convocation.
Dr. King, president of Oberlln Uni
versity, spoke briefly on tho true value
of a college course. Tho announcement
that Dr. King would speak, filled tho
chapel with students, and throughout
his address ho was accorded close at
tention. 1 1
Dr. King was of tho opinion tnat the
tendency of college mon today Is to
ward too much specialization. But so
long as the college stands for culture
and refinement, for Interest In litera
ture, art, science, for tho making of
friendships, he said, it concerns the
students to nsk how wo come Into
these spheres. Ho advised caroful dis
crimination in ihter-n thorough con
viction In one's work. As an In
valuablo aid to the building- of. chnr
acter In college he emphasized tho
necessity for modesty in judging one's
limitations, and for honesty with one's
work, as well as with others.
Dr. King paid a deep compliment to
Chancellor Andrews, and to tho uni
versity, In Introducing his remarks. He
was known to all Nebraska's former
Chancellors, ho said, and to jnany ,pf
hor earlier faculty, atfd he congratu
lated her on the 'fact that she can
point to Chancellor Andrews- as (he
head of hor university. Who students
of Nebraska should reflect more and
more the spirit of Chancollor An
drews," he said.
