The spheroid will be kicked off at
3:30 o'clock thiB afternoon In opening
what is "doped" to be a faBt struggle
between Nebraska and Orlnnoll at
Antelpoe park. The time of halves
will probably be thirty minutes.
The Grlnnell warriors arrived In
the city last ovonlng and nre quar
tered at the Llndell hotel, where they
were willing to discuss the game
freely. They said they were not fig
uring on winning from Nebraska, but
hoped to make a good Bhowlng. Their
success against the Cornhuskers last
season, they explained, had taught
tbom that they might be able to score
on the Cornhuskers at any time and
that they also might be able to pre
vent Nebraska's scoring in the open
ing.. They did not believe they would
win. They said they had too much
respect for the ability of "King" Cole
and his pupils to expect that.
Thoy have been following closely
the work of the Cornhuskera this sea
son nd think Nebraska has one of
the best teams In the west. "Your
team," one of them commented, "has
a great deal on many of tho elevens
in the west. Look at that line of
yours. Nearly every man in It 1b a
veteran, and Is a heavyweight. They
ought to play terrific ball. In your
back field you have Kroger at full
and, at quarter, that speedy Cooke.
Nebraska surely will tear things up
this season. I look for them to de
feat Minnesota."
The Nebraska cadet band will fur
nlsh muBlc at the game.
Admission to any part of tho
grounds will bo fifty cents. There
will be no reserved seats.
A stiff signal practice was the word
last night at Antelope park and for
over an hour the team was kept hard
at It. They are in the best of phys
ical condition and notwithstanding
their poor 'showing at practice this
-week, look to be easy winners today.
Grlnnell has been sending out pessi
mistic reports about the injuries to
their team, their lack of weight and
'experience, and various other tales
-which might delude the public and
Incidentally the Nebraska players In
to believing that the Cornhuskers will
have a Qoft snap today in trimming
tho Iowa collegians. However, these
dire tales have all been taken with a
liberal amount of salt and no too
much credence has been given them.
It Is an old trick of crafty coaches to
circulate gloomy reports, on the eve
of a game with tho Intention of in
, jsplrlng the opposing team wjth over
confidence and then springing a happy
BurprlBo on them when the time for
the game rolls around. ,
Different Now.
But "for once this will h&ve no. effect
on either Nebraska players or root
ers. There is no reason on earthwhy
the Cornhusker rooters, should be con
fident of an "easy victory today, al
though the Nebraska team on paper
' looks like a World beater. This is
the way they staok up:
Wt. Squad
Player. Position.
Harvoy (Capt.)..R. E.
Chnloupka R. T.
Harto R. G.
Collins C.
Ewlng L. O.
Frum L. T.
.TohnBon ..' L. E.
Cooke Q.
Deltzer L. H.
Blrknor R. H.
Krogor F.
From these statistics It Is readily
seen that tho. Cornhusker aggregation
lncks nothing in experience. There
is not a man on the squad who haB
not played at least two years of foot
ball at Nebraska In weight the team
is as heavy as it has been any tlmo
In recent years and the weight is
well distributed among the players.
With the exception of Cooke, tho
midget quarterback, there are no very
light men, and on the other hand,
there Ib no one who weighs over two
hundred. Every man on the team is
active and shifty on his feet With
experience, weight, and training in
their favor, It is hardly conceivable
that the team" should continue" In the
dumps as they have been this last
week and it is to be hoped that ttioy
will take a big stride In the opposite
direction this afternoon:
Has Good Points.
But the Grlnnell aggregation Is not
without its advantages "too, Their
average .weight is only a few pounds
less than that of the Cornhuskers and

"Scarlet and Cream" 8ald to Bo
Merely a Parody on Princeton's
Famous 8ong the Orange
and Black.
Among several students moBt inter
ested in tho welfare of tho university,
a movement is now on foot to get
a now school song. It 1b contondod
by these students that tho present
Bong is Jnot oven original, but Is
merely a worked-over song taking
for Its model ono of tho favorites in
eastern colleges.
It has been a custom In the past
Flanagan, Grinnell Left End
to get catchy music for athletic
events by taking somo popular comic
opera 'tune and fitting appropriate
words to it It is contended that
while this may be appropriate enough
for such events, it is hardly proper
to have the formal school song car
pentered Mn such fashion..
To get the matter before the school
a 'committee composed of Messrs.
Hills, ' Montgomery and Dobbs has
been appointed. '
,Commlttee'at Work.
This committee is now attempting
to get students who hare awfeal
ability Interested In the nutUer'M
that tho movomont may havo somo
practical result.

"Tho attomnt in irnt n nnlinnl nnntr

tho Btudonts of this Institution for
the last fow years Jb an exact theft
In regard to tune and a parody as to
wording upon tho old favorito of
Prlncoton, tho 'Orango and Black.'
"Even In such Imitations wo can

Bovoral other Bmall schools in thu

outgrown hor swaddling clothos to
allow such a Btato of things to con

largest state institution and the thir
teenth largest Institution, public or

Need It ladly.
"Proudvof our traditions for clean
liness and grltlin sports, for keen,
clear-cut thinking In debate, and for
scholastic excellence, Nebraska can
not afford to be without a song of
her own. The work, however, Is one
in .which all must help, and any.sug

"over to the committee."
