team Into the game tomorrow than she
had against Ames last Saturday. Two
men who were kept out of the Ames
game on account of their studies have
taken special "exams" and have pull
ed thru them with colors flying high.
Here is what the Minnesota Dally
says about these men:
Case and Young will play the tackles
In the Nebraska game.
Just what this means to the team
may hardly be appreciated by' those
who have not been watching Its prog

Saturday looks at least fifty per cent
better with these two men as stum
bling blocks for the Nebraska offense
on Minnesota's line.
Case is not In tip top shape, but he
has been doing considerable training
during the last week and is carrying
little superfluous flesh at present.
George never could be lean, however,
and he will have fully 200 pounds to
hurl at the Nebraska Interference Sat
urday. Young divided honors with KJel
lund on the line Saturday and Is a
good man on both offense and defense.
Case took his "con" exam yesterday
morning and the result was announced
half an hour later to the delight of all

Dr. Shambaugh explained that he

Conditions on the frontier were

the west was no place for him. The
frontier fostored a sympathetic attl-
tudo. It made men really democratic
and, fostered a threefold equality; '
equality before the law, equality In
the law, and equality In the making
of the' law. True, the west did not
