THE OPENING GAME.
Poru comes to Nebraska thlB after
noon for the opening game of tho sea
son on tho Cornhuskor schedule.
Thero Ib absolutely no doubt as to
tho result of tho gamo; tho only spec
ulation 1b on the bIzo of the score.
Tho Normals hope to hold the Scarlot
and Cream players to a lower score
than last year when tho game went
against them 53 to 0, and the Corn-
hUBkers expect to roll up more points
than they did a year ago. Nebraska's
chances of making a larger score are
In the contest there will be nine of
last Boason'a "N" men. These players
with several others who will bo given
a tryout will form one of the strong
est over played in an opening game .of
tho season by Nebraska. Practically
all members of this team worked to
gether under "King" Cole last year
and understand the modern game
thoroughly. Their work last year and
ir practice thrs Beason encourage the
Tebraska rooters to believe that they
"will' bo able to pile up as many points
an thoy may wish this afternoon.
Peru claims to bo some stronger than
last season but the Cornhuskors are
veterans now and if these men aro
kept In the contest long enough there1
is every reason to look for a greater
score than 53 points. A llno-up on tho
strength of Nebraska may also be
gained from the work of the players
this ' afternoon.
There Ib bound to be a weak
" place in any team this early in the
season, and the Conrhuskers are no
exception. The backfield presents a
problem the solution of which may
bo partly suggested by the what dif
ferent men do today. The candidates
for backfield position are numerous
but there appears to be only a few
who pomlse to make tho right kind
of material to work well In the big
games of the year. The Poru game
, will give the rooters an opportunity to
see what men will probably clinch
places In the backfield later in the
fall. There are other weaknesses on
the eleven and these will be obvious.
Tho graduation of Captain Weller
left the Varsity without & kicker, and
as yet no man has been brought out
who looks as though he will be able
to fill tho great hole In tho booting
department. Several mon will bo
. glVen a tryout at tho too work this
, afternoon. Perhaps "King" Colo will
decide on one to be developed Into
a kicker, .for tho other games. The
new forward pass to be used by the
Cornhuakers this fall will bo displayed
Undor tho reformed gridiron ruled
this Innovntlon haB more lmportanco
In football than any other play and
tho team that has a good pass Is very
likely to have a play faBt football.
Nebraska needs a forward pasB thin
ueaBon If Ames and Minnesota nro to
bo defeated. What has been done
with It and what tho Cornhuskors
have yet to learn tho rooters will bo
oblo to boo when tho paBB Is used
against tho Normals.
NORMAL8 COME TODAY.
(Continued from Pago I)
Tho quarterback situation was re
lieved somewhat last ovonlng when
Dentloy returned. Ho Is In tho best
or condition, having been shoveling
ore In South Dakota mines all sum
mer, and If necessary may go Into
tho game today. Both Bontloy and
Cooko have given the enthusiasts a
great deal of worry by their continued
failure to show up.
The field promises to be In excel
lent condition for today's gamo unless
unfavorable weather conditions arise.
Tho gridiron was thoroughly
sprinkled last evening to lay the duBt
and a high wire fence has been strung
along tho south side of the field. The
boxes and bleachers have not yet
been eroctod south of the field, but
they will bo up In time for the Grin
nell game on October 10th. In the
meantime this space may be used
for carriagos and automobiles with
out oxtra charge.

MINNEAPOLIS, MINN., Sopt. J55
Orrln Safford is scheduled for tho cap
taincy of the University of Minnesota
football eleven for 1908 to Bucceed
George Capron, whose resignation
followed charges of professionalism In
baseball during last summer.
A meeting of tho football team was
called for tonight by Captain John
Schunecht of the 1907 team, to take
place after practice. Tho meeting was
postponed, however, owing to the late
hour at which practice ended, and the
election probably will take place to
morrow. Safford appeared on the field for the
first time yesterday afternoon and his
appearance was greeted with enthu
siasm. He was ineligible for play last
year and yesterday was the first time
he had donned the moleskins In two
years. Safford Is heavier than he was
two years ago and has shown up well
IOWA CITY, Io., Sopt. 25 Running
"stunts" productive of healthful pers
piration and studying hundreds of new
plays Ib the nightly task allotted tho
Hawkoye squad these days by Coaches
Catlln and Griffith on Iowa field. Tho
arrangement of the Iowa eleven Is Un
uBual this week, and the veterans are
playing in strange positions. Sldel,
the husky tackle, has boon Bwltched
to loft guard by Catlln. Soidel came
back weighing 214 poundB and in fine
shape. Hastings, the chunky center,
was tried at right guard successfully.
Comley, a strong '07 substitute, went
to center. McDonald is doing good
work at quarter when the veterans,
Bemls, Stewart and Bruggeman, are
off duty. Hazard, the old half, it at end.
AMES. Iowa. Sept. 25 Drasda, a
220-pound tackle, is the find of the sea
son at Ames, and Coach Williams is
more than pleased with the speed and
shiftiness of the new man. He tore
holes in the varsity the first night
Captain Law returned the middle of
last week and is playing his same con
sistent game at the other tackle. The

CHAMPAIGN, 111., Sept 25 The Illi
nois coaches were relentless today de
spite the heat, and the varsity squad
was ready to cry enough when dusk
Between the weather and tho schol
astic bugbear, the coaches are1 worry
ing a great deal. Several of the mem
bers of the squad may bo ineligible
on account of their studies and word
from the faculty is being awaited ap
prehensively. . Garrett, tho former
Northwestern guard, is declared to be
out of tho question, as he has not mar-
tlculated. There Is little hopo that he
will be a candidate. Another gloom
story was started by the failure of
Lyon Gardiner to report The veter
an half back is overdue and rooters
fear he Is not coming.
Twist and Ekblaw, two heavy
weights of last year's freshman team,
showed up well among Coach Llnd
gren's squad of heavyweights. Coach

MADISON, Wis.,, Sopt. 25 Seven
new mon joined tho University of Wis
consin football squad yesterday, bring
ing tho total number up to twenty
olght, of whom nineteen are eligible
for the varsity team. The now men
who reported were Iaklsch, a big fol
low who played guard and tacklo on
tho varsity last season; Lowman, a
faBt follow, who played end on the reg
ulars In some of tho games last sea
son; Shaefer, a substitute ond last
season; Irwin, a former substitute
lineman; Andbuser, Imbods and Reg-,
Iaklsch, who, besides being a foot
ball player, rowed on the varsity crew
last spring, is In fine condition. Low
man is also in good condition and went
through the two hours work with con
siderable snap and speed.
There is some doubt whether the law
school faculty will give Stlehm, the big
center, a special examination to re
move a condition which he accumul
ated during tho summer semester.
Stlehm will not report for work until
PRINCETON, N. J., Sopt. 25. Ono
thing the coaches have decided on is
to keep constantly shifting the players
from varBlty to Bcrub and vico-vorsa
with a view to keeping oven the regu
lars themselves In the dark In order
that they may work all the harder to
win a place . There will Do no position
"clinched" according to Head Coach
'"Individualism has hurt many a
team," declared Princeton's coach to
day, "and we are going to keep it
down as much as possible."
In the early games, the line-up will
differ continually. But another pur
pose will also be Berved for tho ma
terial at Princeton this year Is all
more or less experienced and while
the games themselves may of minor
character, there will be strenuous
workouts In the daily scrimmages with
the scrubs, so that little will bo
known of the tentative team which the
coaches will doubtless have in mind
throughout the season until a week
before the Yale game, when Prince
ton plays Dartmouth In New York.
CHICAGO, Sept. 25. Coach A. A.
Stagg administered a shock to his
line candidates yesterday by giving
them a demonstration of his famous
"stone wall" treatment for backwarAl
heavyweights. He put them through
a session of the stlffest practice they
have ever encountered In early sea
son training and Informed them that
he would give them his exclusive at
tention until they showed signs of
Improvement. , --
The maroon oach has discovered
the same .germs that infested Mar
shall field at the beginning of the
J.905 season. Once more, he believes,
the maroon forwards are only fit to
form a "paper line," and he has de
termined to bring out the sterner
qualities of the linemen if any exist.
The seance with the linemen lasted
a good hour, and Stagg intends to in
crease the dose daily.
Twelve line candidates took part
in the charging and defensive work.
Badenoch, Worthwlne and Ehrhorn
were all tried at the center position,
and Stagg expects to have a hard
task in developing Anderson's succes
sor from one of the trio. Taylor,
Baker and Bohlander, all new men,
were worked at guard, and it is pos
sible that both guard positions may
fall to one of the inexperienced can
didates. Worthwlne, however, may
be used at guard In case Badenoch
goes to center.
Hoffman, who played guard inmost
of last year's games, was worked at
left tackle on the first team, with
Kelley at his old position at the other
tackle. Smith, a heavy sophomore
candidate, also got a trial at tackle.
John Schommer played left end in
the practice, with Briggs, a sopho
more, at right end. Elliott, a lineman
from last year's freBhman team, was
tried at end for a part of the lime.
The candidates will be given sta
tionary work and plenty of practice1
with the tackling dummy, however.
Page tore the left leg off tho veteran
dummy yesterday In his enthusiasm,
and Stagg took it as a good omen.
Harvey Blair, the star sprinter from
Hammond, was not frightened by
Stagg's warning against intercollegi
ato immigrants, and ho Joined the
maroon squad yesterday. He attend
ed Wabash last year, where he played
quarter back on the freshman football
team. Harold Iddlngs, who has been
spending a short vacation In Minno
rota, will join the squad today, ac
