LARGE SQUAD OUT
MANY NEW CANDIDATE8 REPORT
FOR PRACTICE LAST EVENING.
Some Fast Work Done by the Team
on the Newly Harrowed and
Tho football squad was greatly en
larged last evening by the appearance
of several )g.ew candidates. Tho new
men went Into the game with an earn
estness that will prove fatal to somo
of the old men unless they continue
work and training with equal enthusi
asm. Somo fifty-three men wore on
the field and Assistant Coach Wesi
over and Captain Borg put them
through the stlffest work of the sea
son thus far.
The absence of Booth does not seem
to causo any fall In Nebraska's stock
In the market, for everything Is mov
ing along as steadily as If the big
coach was on the field. Instructions
come from him every day and these
Instructions are followed out as Im
plicitly by tho men as If ho were him-
self giving them direct. Tho men will
show much Improvement In tho com
ing game with the High School over
that of last Saturday.
The squad was divided Into throe
sections yesterday, and given somo
practice In catching and running down
punts. Cotton, Beekly ind Morse did
the punting. Nelson, Who played guard
on last Saturday, Is being trlod at cen
ter 'some this week, and shows him
self to bo very accurate In passing.
Cotton was given a trial at kicking
goals from placemont and succeoded
In putting three out of four between
tho goal posts. Denslow received tho
ball, but was a llttlo slow In placing
it, but with more practice this should
bo quite effective In a closo game.
Eager was trlod out at quartor.
Somo concern Is shown among tho
football enthusiasts at tho crltlcul con
dition of Benedict's knee. According
to previous reports, Benny reported
for practice but In punting ho throw
his leg out at tho knee. Tho old
wound of tho Iowa game my again
prove sufficiently bad to keep Bene
dict out 'of tho gamo this season, al
though ho may bo able to got Into at
least tho big games.
Tho field was In bettor condition last
night than It has been at any time J
yet. Tho ground had been thoroughly
disced yesterday with a harrow and
this made it much moro soft, while it
did not hinder fast playing. Tho
tackling was much better, as tho men
wore jnoro "anxious to leavo their feot
nnd tacklo with moro exactness than
any time heretoforo.
The first men's mass mooting or the
year will occur tomorrow morning at
11 o'clock in tho chapel. A number of
prominent professors and alumni will
address the meeting and raise tho en
thusiasm to a" high pitch. Everybody
should be sure to attend this mooting
