for years. All the prominent Lincoln
High SchooT players of last year's
team are in the University, and try

most prominent of these men.

team. . This game-will be followed by

Borg Is Honored.
Tho annual Cornhuskor banquet was
held aC tho LIndoll Hotel last Monday
night at 9 o'clock. About ono hundred
students, professors and business men,
besides tho football -mon, woro pres
ent. It was regretted by all prcsont
that Coach Booth could .not bo with
tho toain on this occasion, but tiro urg
ency of his law practlco in tho east
would not permit of his absonco any
longer. Ho had not forgotton tho
Cornriuskors, though, for a tolegram
was. received from "Bumralo" and rend.
to tho men during tho banquet.
Dr. Pound acted as toastmastor. for
tho occasion, and the Dean was at his
best, giving tho banqueters somo of
tho best talks they have over listened
to on similar occasions. Frank Craw
ford of Omaha was ono of tho speak
ers, and related In a very Interesting
way tho experiences of football In 1893
and 1894. Crawford was coach at that
time, and played quarterback In somo
of tho games. Besides these, Captain
Borg, Fred Lundln, Managor Morrison
and Dr. Bolton responded to toasts.
Just before Borg arose to apeak, Dr.
Pound presented him with a beautiful
gold watch, which was tho present of
tho captain's many admirers.
Tho theme of all tho speeches wn8v
that football as It Is played today
and according to the rules is riot as
brutal ii game as thought by n great '
many. All that Is necessary is to elim
inate tho roughness which. Is practiced
by some of tho tennis nnd to play clean
ball. Tho plan for a new athletic field
was thoroughly discussed by Managor
"Morrison, and much interest . was
shown by those presont in regard to
it. Lundln, In his spccchT paid high,

so hard In order that tho varsity might -have
