With one of tho hardest games of
the season at hand the Cornhuskors
are in worse condition for a contest
than they havo been at any other time
tjiis year. Two or three players are
on the hospital list and will be in
poor shape for Saturday's game and
the Cornhuskera will bo in a weakened-
condition 'when they meet the
Iowa Aggies on this account. Besides
hard luck from injuries to men, tho
team has also suffered 'in being handi
capped by the rain in practice.
Practice'wns held at tho State Farm
Wednesday. The field was soft, but
Jar better than that of tho gridiron.
The scrimmaging was a disappoint

much the same as that of the first

small 'score -has given them a scare.

Opinion In Ipwa That Aggies Are Not
Tho following diBpatch to tho Chi

a lino on tho "dope" at that school.
"King" Colo, coach of tho Nebraska
University-football team, lias declarorf
that unless tho Cornhuskors shoWf
marked improvement during tho com

day by a substantial scoro. Ho states
.that he watched tho Ames-MInnosota
game several weeks ago and he was
greatly Impressed with tho way in
which tho team worked at that time,
and he believes that Juat now Ames
Is one of the strongest teams In tho
West. But throughout tho Btato of
Iowa a contrary opinion provails.
Both teams aro believed to bo min
imizing their strength In an attompt
to deceive tho opposing squad. But
U Is known that both Coaches Colo
and Williams are making desporato
efforts to perfect thoir formations.
And it Ib alBo predicted that tho com

will bo one of the .most sensational
In western football this season.
