Cornhuskers Down riawkeyes in
Hard-Fought Contest-
Ioiih Nroreii on Khikf, Hut NelmiAlm
Mrtkos Throe Tanrhdovrni.
lii a game made extremely spec
tacular by long runs by Benedict, Ben
dor and Johnson, but long-drawn out
And hIow by Iowa's poor physical con
dition, the Cornhuskers defeated tho
Hawkeycs Saturday afternoon by a
score of 17-G, an exact duplicate of tho
Nebraska-Iowa score one ear ago.
This year as last, the first half ended
r.-n for Iowa, and Nebraska carried
Iowa off her feet in the second Tho
game, tho" called at 3, was not ended
till it was almost too dark to play.
Iowa's men were In poor condition and
the fierce attack and swift play of Ne
braska forced thorn to constantly call
for time. Iowa's Bcore, the first made,
was the result of a thirty-five yard run
by Stoltenberg for a touchdown, after
the ball had been fumbled. Nebraska's
scores wore made by straight foot
hall tacstics, two by covering the last
ten yards by powerful line bucks, and
one by a pretty fifteen yard run by
Johnson, who got free through Iowa's
left tackle. Of these three touchdowns
Bennie converted two into goals. Just
at tho close of the game Btoltcnborg,
for Iowa, again got away and brought
(he crowd to Its feet by sprinting down
the field over Nebraska's goal The
referee, however, had called the ball
down and tho score uid not count. The
most spectacular feature was Bender's
long quarterback runs. When line
buck failed Bender usually omerged,
on the third down, with the ball Under
his arm and toro off from fifteen to
thirty yards before being tackled. Tho
excellent tackling of Iowa alone was
responsible for hla not gotting across
their goal tlmo and again Not less
remarkable were the runs of Bennle's
around Iowa's right and Johnson then
around Iowa's left tackle.
Bcnnio and Bill were accountable for
many of the yards to Nebraska's credit
and their defensive work was of the
usual standard. No gains were made
around either. Eagor's worR in inter
' ference was oxcellent, not a play
started that ho wasn't in and the runs
toward tho right were successful, large
ly because he had made the way clear.
Iowa's punting wns the best any of our
opponents have done so far, but Bene
dict was in his usual good form and
an exchange of punts usually netted
Nebraska from five to fifteen yards.
For Iowa Stoltenberg, at right end,
was the star. Ho- was -responsible. -far.
Iowa's score, and his work in running
down punta was flue.
Iowa won tho toss and chose thj
south goal. Cotton kicked off at 3: i4,
a slight wind from the north favor
ing Nebraska. The- ball was returned
ton yards. A vain attempt to gain
through our lino, and a fumble com
pelled Iowa to kick. It was Nebraska's
ball on Iowa's fifty yard) line. First
down -was made through right tackle,
and the ball was fumbled after a ton
yard gain by Johnson. Iowa fell on the
ball. Iowa Immediately procoedea to
fumblo again, but regained the boll,
and punted to Bender, who was downed
for no gain. Bonnie made a good gain
round right end, but lino plunges failed,
and we punted. Iowa tried fake punt,
with loss, and Nebraska got the ball
at the center. Iowa held and recov
ered the pig akin, but was forced to
punt. Bonder made five then -fifteen
yards, and agaln'Nebraslta fumbled ana
Stoltenberg, for tyowa, ran thirty-flvo
yards for their only score. Goal was
kicked, making tho score 6-0 against
Nebraska. InlB ended the scoring for

Noted Nebraskan Makes Inter
esting Address at Chapel.
Hon. Charles E. Magoon, of Wash
ington, D. C. gave a most interesting
talk in chapel yestciday morning on
tho arioiiB phases ol tho Panama
canal Mr. Magoon 1h general counsel
for tho canal commission, and his talk
was listened to with much attention.
He described in brief the system of
operations which will bo conducted on
the canal, the obstacles that must bo
overcome to complete it, and tho his
tory of tho canal itself in French a.s
well as American hands. Tho advan
tages of the completed canal werjj
brought out clearly
Ah to the probable time that tho
construction of the canal would neces
sitate. Mr. Magoon said in aubstanco
"It is. of course, impossible to say
exactly, and eaually impossible to
majce an estimato until it is deter
mined as to the lovol to which tho
canal will bo dug. If the lovol adopted
by the French engineers is accepted
by the United States commission, it is
reasonable to expect that the work will
be completed in abodt ten years, which
1b one-hair of the time allowed by
the French engineers.
"This gratifying view is justified by
tho fact that tho American engineers
arc confident of their ability to utilize
steam shovels, hydraulic pressure and
modem meaiiH and appliances, which
the French engineers thought could
not be used to advantage because of
tho mountainous character ol tho oun-
"Amerlcan engineers on the ground
told me that their estimate was lesi
than ten years, one making it six
years, one seven and another eight;
each of these gentlemen, however,
called attention to the fact that It was
impossible to make proper allowances
for accidents, resulting trom tropical
storms, bursting of torrential streams,
land slides and so forth.
"If the canal Is dug at sea level, it
-ia of- -eourse,---Impossible to urdlcl
when, It will be completed, further
than to assert with confidence that it
will be accomplished during the pres
ent generation.
Mr. Magoon corrected the liupres&lon
that the climate and health conditions
of Panama aro unori'durable, and stated
that with proper sanitary methods,
the American laborers on tho canal
need not suffer. He supplemented his
remarks by a description of what the
government is doing to Insure proper
