18 AN EVIL.
Eckersall Scores Secret Practice. Cus
Writing In tho Chicago Tribune
Walter II.- Eckersall, the famous x
Chicago football quarter attacks se
cret football practice and makes n call
to get colleges to abandon It. He Nays
"Of all tho evils which have besot
college football and robbed it of Inter
est to the, students and warmer enthu
siasts secret practice has beon one of
tho worst. In former years spies were
unknown and the doings of a team
were as open as daylight. Now an
eleven is hedged about with such se
crecy that not even its closest support
ers can tell a lineup an hour or two be
fore a big 'game.
Back in tho '90's, when colleges had
at. good teams comparatively as they
ever had, secret practice was unknown.
Tho men appeared on tho open cam
pus each night from four o'clock until
dark with all tho energy at their com
mand. No attention was paid to the
side lines or to the spectators, and tho
team became highly proficient in lbs
Tho result was that everybody knbw
the team, know Its work, knew Its
strength and its wenknosBOS, and nat
urally great onthuslasm abounded.
Whether a college student whs greatly
interested in football or not, he could
hardly help getting the fovor with the
great crowds on the campus each
night, and there wan not a man in col
lego who could not tell something
about the olovon.
All this is changed. After the first
few days of work tho team goes Into
secret practice, and not one word of
reliable information can bo gained
thereafter. If a man Is hurt deception
i.i practiced to conceal IiIb real con
dition, and nono of tho arts of men
dacity are forgotten In attempts to
keop from friends and enemies tho
names of tho men who will appear in
Football writers are admlted to the
secret practise In some Instances, just
why nobody can over determine, for
they are bo bound by promise of so:
crecy that they cannot write one word
of Information which they glean nt tho
football Hold. No one collego can bo
blamed for adoptirig this policy of so

If tho onthuslasm which was ox
hlbltod at the football rally yesterday
morning is any Indication Nobraska
will certainly have a winning football
team this year. Thoro was enthusiasm
any amount of It, and enthusiasm,
according to "King" Colo, Is what
makes tho "do or dlo". sontlruont In
The band was on hand, and by 'stir-,
ring music, patriotic and otherwise
did their share to help Nobraska devel
op a strong team. Captain Worfkzir
was tho "master of cqremonles" and
as a starter appointed ten big men to
get Captain Weller. The big mon sal
lied bravely forth, but thoy never re
turned. Captain Worklzor Is much
worried and Is organizing a soarchlng

ho Is in his effort to -build up -a ttfa?
chine that will not bo beaten this, sea
son. Ho declared that 'tho students
have duties to perform which are Jugt
as Important as tho work of tho team
Itself. Among these things the most
Important Is enthusiasm and cheering
at football games. It Is -also impor
tant to have such a feeling among tho
students that the football players will
feel It their duty to keop themselves
In training. "King" Colo spoko of th'o
schedule of games which tho team will
be called upon to play this year,; and
emphasized tho point -that It woufd
require tho hardest and most consis
tent kind of work to bo successful.
Dr. Bolton was next called upon
and.after a few parses about the, ladles
declared that what we needed were
thermo pnoumatlcs, "hot. lungs."
Dr. Maxey 'then ascended th,o' ros
trum. After telling the usually, good
Jokes, he declared' that football was
still the same old game and, that it
always would bo the same old game
that deserves the support, of every
'body. Ho entirely, agreed with Dr.
Bolton that heated lungs were very
Important for ouruture success,
