Nebraska's Team Improving Cpoke
Not Badly Hurt Benedict
Last Saturday Coach Stuart wis in
the "land of the Gophers" and' wit
nessed the struggle between Minne
sota and Ames. Hek characterizes our
opponents of next Saturday as a
"strong, Jjeavy team, with a powerful
offense." 'Minnesota has a poworful
team and vfti outweigh us decidedly,
as they did the farmers from Iowa, but,
according to Stuart, the difference be
tween the scores of our game with
Ames and Ames' game with Minnesota
should not bo taken as a .test of the
relative strength of the two teams.
Ames played In- hard, luck, lacking
two of their best men in the line up.
Their capltaln and quarterback; to
whoso splendid generalship and punt
ing, was due their vlotory over the
CornhuSkers, was out of the game,
and his absence was keenly felt from
the very first.
Minnesota played the old heavy
fotball that has always been her
strongest feature and resorted torfew
tricks or open plays. The only fea
ture that smacked of the' new rules
"3a8 a Quarterback kick that was suc
cessfully tried several times. Other
than this thoy confined themselves
to straight line plunges; relying on
their superior weight and brawn to
shatter their opponent's line. If Min-
nesota has any trick plays and Intri
cate forward passes to spring on us
next Saturday, she did not show her
hand against Ames. . ,
'Secret practice was held .Monday
night jmd the team was coached with
the special end In view of meeting
Minnesota's heavy line bucks. The
team Is showing up well and Improv
ing -wonderfully on the offense, for It

It has not been able to do heretofore.

Plan to Come.
To Be Celebration at Train When the
Team Leaves for Minnesota.
The rooting leaders and the Inno
cents are working up a typical Ne
braska send-off for the team when It
leaves for Minnesota on Thursday af
ternoon of this week. Drill Is to be
dismissed early and the band will lead
a procession from the campus to the
Burlington station, where music and
speeches by the coaches, members of
the faculty, and the team, will keep
things moving till the train pulls out.
The team leaves at six o'clock on
thel regular Burlington train and It Is
confidently expected that there will be
a tremendous turn-out to Inspire them
for what may be the hardest game of
the season. Altho a rate of $12.50 for
the round trip has been offered for
those who may wish ip see next Sat
urday's game, it cannot be expected
that Nebraska will have adequate sup
port from the grandstand on Minne
sota's field and so Thursday evening
will be the last chance for the rooters
to do their effective work, The team
should be given Inspiration there suf
ficient to carry them triumphantly un
til they return.
