MOUNTAINEERS PROMISE HARD
Slfl Crowd Will 8ee the Best Game ofr
Season on Home Grounas-'-lMe-
braska Is Ready.
All is in preparation for the big
game today, and when the game id
called at two-thirty grandstand and
bleachers will bo packed! with Tooters,
hot all of whom will bo wdarlBg tho
Scdrlbt and Cream. An excursion of
i?50 CblOfrtdoans will arrive in Lincoln
about ton o'clock this morning, armed
with colors and megaphones, and de
termined to out-root Nebraska on her
own field. Thursday 200 grandstand
seats were reserved for tho delegation
and yesterday morning tho Colorado
manager had an additional 150 set
aside, haying received word that moro
tickets had been sold than 'ho had
counted on. On account, of a war be
tween tho tJnion Pacific and the Bur
lington, a round trip rate of five-dollars
was secured, and accordingly half
tho colego is coming along. With this
opposition to fight against, our own
rooters will do tho best that Is in
them, and Nebraska field will ho the
scono of as pretty an exhibition of
college spirit as any western field
has ever sen.
The Colorado team arrived in Lin
coln early Fridaymorning, and afc
onco went to tho -Lindell. At eleven
o'clock they came up to tho Univer
sity and attended the football rally,
which seemed to interest them very
much. One of the players expressed
himself fts being much pleased with
the football song sung by the band.
After that they spent the remainder
of tho flay In quloCuntll threo olock,
when" they wofe taken out to the state
..farm for a final 'slgnai practice, for
which they did not oven put .on their
togs.x While not confident- of defeating
Nebraska, ptill the men are dete'r
mined, to put up the game of their
lives and to fight to the last whistle.
All tho men are In fine physical condt
tlonp'and show no effects of the Jour
ney. ., ,
Nebraska is ready for the game, and
confidence of victory reigns In Booth's
camp. "Every man lsln good condi
tion,, with tho exception of Densjow,
whoso ankle Is getting worse, and may
keep him out of the game for the rest
of the seas'oh. Avory and McDonald'
will 'take caro of his position very sat
isfactorily, however,' and with John
son - on tho other Jwlng of tho lin
Caloy will ptpjiably fall to pull off
" any -df his spectacular runs, Bene'dict
yas nevotjh finer form, and every
studont is confident that the old moss
grown trick used on Minnesota, Illi
nois and all the rest of them will bo
good for at least fifty yards some time
during the game. While the Uno is
still somewhat weak, Nebraska never
had a better secondary defense', and
lino bucks will net Colorado but little.

On account of tho early evenings,
the game today will begin at half past
ttvo Instead of half an hour later, and
frill halves will be played. Tho field
is in vory good condition, considering
tho rain of a week ago, and although
soft enough to prevent any player from
sustaining severo brulsps, is not soft
enough to prevent fast work. For the
first time in six woolcs the ball will bo
dry enough to allow of good punting,
hnd, tho contest botween Benedict and
Caloy will bo Interesting, with odds
perhaps a little in favor of the latter.
In case of victoryfpr Nebraska, the
Annual bon-flro will probably be pio
pared by the students.' If this proves
to bo true, tho football management
urges the students to build tho fire
some place other than on tho football
field, for tho heat bakes the ground,
so that play over -that spot Is danger
ous for tho rest of the season.

Tho Michigan Daily has the follow
lng to say about girls rooting squads
at football games:
"Thoniovement -among the girls to
nttondthe Wisconsin game in a .body
Is meeting success on all sides. Di
rector Baird has promised to reserve
two wholo sections foiv girls exclu

over tho campus, team and students
are enthusiastic over tho display of

- "Captain Norcross, speaking of tho
Minnesota-Wisconsin game, said:
'Thoy had a wholo section with noth
ing but girls. I didn't suppOso they'd
make any holde, but whonOvor Minne

"There havd always been a lot of
