Nebraska and Minnesota will clash
In their annual football game on
Northrop field at 3 o'clock this after
noon. The length of the halves will
probably be thirty minutes.
The game Is being watched with
great Interest at all the universities
In the West, for it 1b the crucial con
test of Minnesota's schedule and will
show whether the Gophers have a
look-In for the Western championship.

laurels. Had Minnesota 'had a weak

In a recent address to the students

Tucker made the proposal to elimin

actlqn on hlB part was due to the re
cent clash between Brown and Dart
mouth due to the pique on the part of
the latter's pitcher. Also President
Tucker suggested that the game of
basehall carried with It an air of com
mercialism which was detrimental
to the spirit of scholarship. The stu
