MINNESOTA OVERWHELMS THE
The Varsity Went Down to Defeat b
a 8core of 35-0 n a Very Hard
t Fought Game.
The Nebraska football team wont
Jown to defeat before Minnesota Sat
urday by -a score of 35-0, The score
ellB the entire story for wo wore de
feated by a better team a team which
out-played the varsity at every posi
tion with the exception of two. Bono
dlct and Borg outplayed the Minnesota
quarter and center In every depart
ment of the game. Benedict was
easily the star of the day and game,
And had It not been for him the score
would have been much larger than It
-was. Borg at center played a star
hpme, although he playod as much at
-other potions as some of tho men.
-Once lie left his position, after the
ball had been put In play and caught
a Minnesota man for a loss on an at
tempted end run.
At2:05 o'clock tho teams took their
respective positions, Nebraska defend
ing the east goal. Benedict kicked off
to-Cutting, -who returned the ball ten
v"sjyafdB before being downed. Mlnne
. Totafbegan a procession now which
. was repeated all the time of play.
- Cutting, Current, Vita, Smith and
Kremer all took turns at going through
Nebraska's lino ab tackle guard for
ten' and fifteen yards at a clip. Once
in a while they would try. impend run
for good gains. Minnesota used, but
aeven different playsk In the " entire,
game, but these were all gainers, espe
cially the tackle buck, and .only once
during thVentlre game did they use a
fake., and this for a Iobs.
The first half proved to be tho easy
one for Minnesota, for at tho close the
score stood at 23-0. They bad, gained
"liilB by hard lino plunges which aim-
ply tore our line to pieces. Thenar-
Blty failed to concentrate their iorco
at the point of attack, but Instead
played individually moro- than collec
tively. Johnson was hurt early In the
game, but stuck persistently until the
end of the half. Borg received a slfght
v Injury, ,but soon focoverod. Cutting,
Minnesota's star hair uacic, was iorcou
to leave tho gttfne this Kalfpn ac:
count of anihjury to hlB leg.
In the-second half but few changes
were made In either line-up. Wilson
went In for Schmidt at rlghtrhalf, and
' Morse for Johnson at-letf end. The
Nebraska, men took a decided brace
in this halt andheld tho Northerner
down to 12 points. The varsity "stone
""' wall" was'.Jiero manifested, and once
oh the two yard llno Minnesota was
lield for, downs. On' offensive work
the team did well, going througn tneir
opponents line for good gains, and
Benedict worked his fake for good
- gains of flften and twenty yards.
Craig and Lundin went in for Mason
and Woller, respectively, in the middle
of the half, and Craig made some good
gains, . .
Minnesota played a ,t hundred per
cent better game jn the Nebraska
" game than they, did in the Wisconsin

Her lino plunges were thoNflorcest over

man of the team was In tho play with
a flerco determination. Nebraska's
nlnvinc. on the other hand, was nofcvup
to the standard they set in the Colb-x
rado-Nobraska game. The tackling
was high, and-not effective, and tho
men did not follow the ball at any time
of the first half ,but took a decided
brace In the second half.
Tho treatment of tho Nebraskans
while in MlnneapolitTwas not of tho
best. The worBt treatment Was given
the team when Benedict was giving
signals, for many times the Minnesota
rooters drowned the signals so tho
men on the team could not hear them.
This was the only discourtesy shown
the people and team by the Minnesota
students. But the small boys In Mln
neappis made themselves quite offen
sive by the way In which they at
tempted to steal Nobraska colors and
armlets. The business men accorded
tho Nebraska people tho most gontle
manly trentment, and granted every
favor wltliln their power to the visi
tors. Tho work of tho officials In tho
game was of a high order. Tho um

But tho officials -wore aided consider

From the account It appears that tho
Michigan team Is tainted with pro

Conference foams which Mr. Jordan
has considered so far. and a number
of Instances woro athlo(es, including
Hammond and Heston, have ben sup
ported are cited.. An old Michigan
gridiron hero is quoted as saying tho
"Colloge athletics are just as much
professional today a professional
baseball Is. Tho only dfferenco Is In
degree not In kind. College boys are
not all paid money salaries; some of
them are. Many of them are paid by
invitation to join some deslrablo asso
ciation or Jraternlty. All If thoy are
prominent iji thqlr preparatory schools,
are solicited By dno or more athletic
managers, very much, as professional
baseball players are lulgnod, before
