The 'VarsltyGoes Through, Good. Prac
,r; tjcc Men In Good Physical
;N,ext Saturday Doano comes to Lin
coln with an Idea that Bhe will carry
n way "the "Cornhu8kor8, " scalp. Thoro
was a tlmo during the nnte-deluvlnn
period when Doane could hold Nebras
ka down to a small score, but' that
time was pre-Boothian. Doano has al
ways played a good game against the
smaller colleges of tnuBtatc, and has
at times succeeded In landing the state
Inter-collegiato championship. TChis
year Is one of the times, as the Crete
men have defeated every college In tho
state. Tho championship was settled
one week ago In tho $ellevue-Doane
gmie, when Doano defeated the Pres
byterians by a score of 2-0.
"The Doane teanj Is made up of a
bunch of husky players this year, and
sbYfar as weight goes have tho varsity
scodped. But they lacfc In experience
and In knowing tho finer points of the
game a whole lot more than they make
up- In weight. The, weight of tho
Doane team is as follows: Dowse, left
end, 179; Day, left tackle, 180; Far-
row, lefrguard, 220 j Specs, center,
193Bronson, right guard, lf); Wild
hafrer right tackle, 187; Perry, fight
e"n"d,f 174: Hurd, quarterback, 153;
Johnson, lef f halfl54 ; Mare&li, right
"-half, 178, and Fuhrer, fullback, 180.
Maresh Is their star player, and, in the
Bellevue gamo 'was responsible for
many of Doane's-largo gains. But the-
Doane team, whllecxpectln defeat,
will come hero with thefirm determi
nation to give Nebraska a runvfor her
It is quite likely that ail excursion
' will como from Crete over the Burling
ton to see Saturday's game, If the
JDoane rooters support their team as
well In this gamo as they did in the
Bellevue gamo some six. hundred root
era should come to Lincoln. Tho
shortness of the distance makeslt all
tho more probable that a largo ex
cursion will como to Lincoln to tho
-ebj&ska gamo than "went to, Bellevue.
Booth' sent .the men""through some
" -good practice last night. The mon;
tried at some new line- bucks and. for
' mations. Rice' and rTaylor were,out
for work! and given some stiff training.
It is quite likely thnt these men will
i bo given a chance In Saturday's game
against the Doane team But, 'owing
, to tho freshman rule;thl8wlll betholf
last gairie of the, -season. "Thenwork
of these two men has boon of tho best
tnls year, and for 'the simple reason
that tboy'havo worked hard all year
- without regard it tho rule barring
Jfeggtliem from tho Conference games, Is
worthy of much praise- , ,
vThe team is In the beBt physical con
dition. that could be expected after tho
flerceway In which they 'were handled
in last Saturday's game-. Johnson was
the.-only 'varsity player that did not
, .report for practice last night," His,
leg Is in pretty bad condition and -will
probably .hinder his practice' work to a
great oextent 'for this week at least.
Benedict was out for workand showed
but llttlo effects of the Mlnnesotn
game. Borg, Weller, Cotton and Wil
son all seem .to be in the best of
physical condition. Thus we find that
the hard gamo of last Saturday has
effected the physical strength of our
team but little.
The men will continue tov practice
on tho field this week, while Booth
may tako them to the State,Farm .for
practice -next week before the Illinois
game. -v.
To Abolish Football at Harvard.
In tho wako of the Jordan articles
on tho corruption of athletics in.
Anlerlcan universities, comes the
statement by John Mahan, coach at
tho Massachusetts Institute of Tech
nology, that football will be abolished
at Harvard after this season.
At a banquet given recently' at the,
Tech Union, Coach Mahan, during, a
talk on athletics, said: "I possess 'In
side information which enablos mo
to say that football in its present form
will not bo played at Harvard next
year. Tho trouble there Is that ath
letics plays too prominent a part is
a business and hot a sport. Men in
the senior and Junior years who have
had enough athletics and wish to
study are made to bollevo that their
duty to thefr college Is to spend their
.time, playing football.1' -
It is Jiot at all improbable that Ma
han is correct when he makes" this
statement, slncq it is known thnt
President Elliot of Harvard Is openly
opposed to tho gamo of football' as It
Is now played.
The gigantic .caterpillar which Is to
be exhibited at tho County Fair hqs
gained ten pounds in weight and a
foot -in length since its arrival inthiBT
city last week. It Is being taught now
"stunts" dally.
JChd latest addition' to the "Baby
Shof department otUio County Fair
Is tho pantomineof "Casey at the.
Bat." The reproduction is ,sald to he
exceedingly interesting.

dent; Miss Stevenson, vice president,

Tho Academy girls are invited to

next Saturday afternoon. Plans will
be discussed regarding the organiza
tion of tho Social Hour Club. Tho

siderable attention. Last year tho

Basket-ball practice Is well under
wqy. The regular practices aro hold
Monday and Wednesday, from G to G,
at the-city Y. W. C. A. rooms. Two
teams are planned for and already
twelve or thirteen girls hnvo signified
their intentions of competing for mom
Football Js carried on by the boys
without help of jnanagement or coach.
Nevertheless, they "are doing romark
ably .well. Next Saturday they go to
Croto to play Doane's secqnd'toam. .
We regret to say that Mr. Rohdrt
Beckstrom has bon compelled to re
turn to his homo at Axtell. Ho has
been three weeks in tho sanitarium,
afflicted with rheumatism. Ho hopes,
however, to return next seemstor.

should be satisfactory to both collogos.
The sentiments of the different mem

but after considerable dobato It was
decided to meet the Jayhawkers half "N
way and' to appoint a commltteo to rP'T
resent Nebraska. Tho conitrilttce was
