In the annual Gopher-CornhuBker grid
iron contest Saturday. The Cornhus
kers will be accompanied by Manager

body of rooters.
A large crowd of rooters will be at

dent in the University who can yell

Nebraska's chances for defeating
Minnesota Saturday are considered tho
best in years. The Gophers, as was
demonstrated in thoir game with Amea
Saturday are weaker than for some
years while Nebraska, no doubt," Is
much' stronger and much better coach
ed than for several seasons. These
conllitlons, according to Nebraska
"dope," " make, tho Cornhuakers'
chancesof victory excellent.
Altho tho Nebraska men did not
show up as well against Grlnnell ns
was hoped, yet their supporters feel
that they were over-condent in thai
game and did not realize they were
playing a good team. After" they found
they were up agalnBt a real strong
bunch they settled down to good work.
This fact haa led their supporters to
believe that they will go into the Min
nesota game, knowing that their op
ponents are strong and will play great
ball. . - -. ,
With tho Minnesota game onlyJa
few days off the football squad is mak-.
ing every effort to round intoahape
for the contest, which bids fair to bo
a close game.
A victory over tho Gophers is a raro
achievement forNthe Cornhuskers, and
the fact that Nebraska' this year
stands a' good chance to win has pitch
ed the "hopes of the4 Comhusko sup
porters concerning the outcome of next
Saturday's contest on Northrup Field
