Booth has his football men practic

they will bo able to keep their footing
on the Michigan field Saturday. Michi
gan has a. field similar to that of Mln
necota, and the men who played in
the Minnesota game last year know
what it is to bo handicapped by going
on to ground without any previous
practice on ground that Is similar. The

Every man on tho squad Is entering
Into tho game with a determination
to down Michigan, and It Js surely
gratifying to the supporters and
coaches at. tho latonse enthusiasm that
is being manifested.
Last night both Booth and West
over worked on the candidates for the
guard positions. It has long been felt
by these men that Nebraska was sure
ly1 in need of a man that could keep
pace with Taylor. But many have
been tried, yet the coaches were not
satisfied. Thomen who wore tried
last night wore Rice, Nelson, Harvey,.
Jenkins, and Wenstrandt. The last
two namod are new men. who have
been on the varsity squad, but a few
days, although they are men whoso
work is surely worthy of notice and
coaching. Rico 1b a good .man, but
plays too low and does not keep Tils

scrimmage, and wore given some fast
work, lining up Just as soon as the
ball was down. This speed wjll be
quite necessary if wo are to make any
Impression against tho heavy Michi

have not decided yet as to who will,
make the trip to Ann Arbor, but it is
qulto definite hat some twenty men
will be taken besides Booth, Westover

of the men 'who will make tho trip will
be .published tomorrow.
Tho team will leave on Thurs

Chicago. Tho trip from Chicago to
Ann Arbor will bo made over tho
Michigan Central, leaving Chicago at

rule, and. asking that Nebraska adopt
tho same In, order to be entitled to
compete in the Conference track meet

forced the athletic botfrd. to adopt the
rule thdy did last Monday night at the

make tho rule retroactive whori, they
adopted it last Bprlng,thoy cannot ask
Nebraska to make the rule apply to
men who have already won positions
on the team. It Is not known how
Michigan and Minnesota -will take the

There Is a team of association foot
ball players touring the East afpres
ent, trying to cultivate tho American
public up to .the merles of their kind
6f game. Tho captain of tho team
says that football' of tho sort played
by tho American colleges is nothing
but a contest of more brute strength,
with little science, and far inferior to
association ball. They seem 'to got
big crowds to attend tholr games, and
It may bo that a craze for association
ball may start up.
