SPECIAL TRAIN TO BE RUN FOR
. ... CREIGHTON GAME.
Low Rate Granted for the Trio and
Many Will Go County Fair. Pos
poned Until November. 25th.
Tho football management has about
completed arrangements for. an excur
sion to Omaha on tho twenty-eighth
bf this month to accommodate thoso
who wish to attend the Crelghton
game. Last year an excursion was
gotten up at tho last moment, and a
largo crowd took advantage of tho
opportunity to cheer for tho Scarlet
and Cream on foreign territory, and
'from tho reports of a good time that
thoy all brought back, it is a certainty
that 'they will all go again and take
thpir. friends with thorn. Owing to
:;tho fact that tho excursion to Minnc
"sola is still all in the air, antl will
not be settled definitely until tfjofirst
of next month, everybody who intends
to accompany the football team on a
trip this year should go to tho Omaha
game. It will bo by no means a prac
. tlce game, for tho toam will naturally
be In poor condition after tho contest
, wit Michigan, and must also bo saved
for the battlo tho next woek with
' Ames, so that a numbor of substitutes
will necessarily bo In tho line-up,
' which will Increase Crolghton's
" chances o scoring considerably.
On account of this excursion tho
great County Pair, which waB to have
been given on that ovenitig by the
Y. Wv C, A., has boon postponed for
just tour weeks, which brings It to
tho night of tho Doanp game, on No
vomber 25. This postponement was
decided upon this noon at a meeting
. of tho managers, of tho fair, who felt
that they Vould not bd doing tho right
thing by tho students who wero loyal
enough to go to Omaha to cheer tor
our men, if thoy wero to, present tho
greatest spectaclo of tho college year
during their absence. While tho delay
will be most unwelcomo to tho student
body, who have been waiting most
anxiously for the groat event, still
thPy all 'appreciate tho' reason which
has led .to the postponement, a,nd will
try to hold themselves in .patience tun
til the great day arrfvpB. Tho. mana
gers have had considerable "troublo
In selecting a press-agent- thoro wero
so many applicants for tho position,
which .requires unusual ability In a
certain line, but thoy havo finally de
cided upon one, and she will begin
,lier notices to tho. students very short
ly. Tho Dally Nobraskan was select
ed qs tho official prgan of tho fair
association. ,, " '
"With the,' County Fair otft of the
way, there will bo nothing to provent
an excursion of five hundred students
to tho metropolis, which certainly
,neods waking up onco in every two or
-three months, an'd, which will just as
, surely experience, that awakening' if
more than 'three University students
j - -
, ' accompany tho team. As yet a "defi
nlto rate has not been procured, but
It will doubtlessly ,bo tho standard ex-
cursfou . ratd, to OmahtW $L10 for tho
'round trln. The special train will
probably leave about nine o'clock and,,
will leave umana. in umo 10 reacn

a letter from tho manngor of tho Unl
ive rslty of Colorado football toam, tell
ing him that arrangements have beon
made to run an excursion from Bou

pears mat a largo number nave al
ready signified their intention of ac
companying tho team and assisting It
In administering tho first defeat that
Nebraska has suffered on its own field
in flvo years. The letter also recites
that Colorado Is' confident of repeating
tho performance of a year ago, under
circumstances that will allow of no
valid excuse, such as altltudo or ex
haustion from a journey, "and that
Sincp tho scoro piled up by tho weBt

Well, It may bo so, but we hayo-
our doqbts about lb Colorado may
havo all sho claims In respect to n
strong team, but sho hasn't got that
gamo tucked away In her pocket by
about twenty-six points. -As a general,
proposition wo arc opposed to a vin

Colorado shall get the worst drubbing
of her life oven If we loso the Minne

a good thing that thoy are- bringing
on that excursion, for they will cor

If that be posslblb. Thoro is ono thing
that must bo attended to by 'tho root

tho Centennial state, as wo were by
tho Jayhawkers a few years ago. Thoy
