Qrlnnoll loomB up stronger this
Boason than at any tlmo in rocont
years, and has mndo tho Nebraska
rootors juBt a little uncertain as to
what to expect In tho game thin
afternoon. Last fall tho Iowa team
came to Lincoln unheralded, and
sprung a noat surprlBo by holding
the Cornhuskers to a 4 to 0 score
in tho ilrst half. They have prac
jtically the same oleven thiB year and
it 1b this fact, when considered in
connection with tho reports about tho
poor playing of the Cornhuskorrf,
that has lod tho Nebraska students
to fear tho Hawkeyeu may bo able
to servo out some moro unpleasant
things today. y zT
It Is true that Qrlnnoll looks fully
as formidable as a year ago, but
ovon with that being truo there is
no cause for any uneasiness on the
part of Nebraskans about tho out
come. The CornhuBkorB are going
to win. No matter how poor a, show
ing they" have been making during
tho past two weeks, thoy are too
tstrong an cloven to go down to de
feat at tho hands of a light team

llko Grlnnoll. The beef and brawn
of tho CornhuBkers, who outway tho
.visitors Boveral pounds to the man,
is bound to year down tho plucky
little men from across tho Missouri.
Qrlnnoll is not likely to score, but,
at the host, it could nmko no moro
than one or two field goals, and prob-
'ably a touchdown. The team 1b not
jheavy enough to force tho Corn-
'huskers back of their own goal line
A touchdown, If made, muBt corao on
a run by some fleet ' Grinnoll man
who Is nolo to oludo all tho Nebraska
tacklers. Such a thing as this seems
The Cornhuskers aro prepared for
just such a team as Grlnnell haB sent
here. They will bo ready to Btop
any ofthe tricks made possible un
der the reformed rules. Left End
Flanagan will' be watched by every
man on the team, and if no succeeds
in setting away for any great gain
He "will bo more of a. wonder than he
'la now looked upon as bejng.
. The size of the Nebraska score will
depend entirely on how well "King"'
Cole's machine Is working. If It 1b
in good shape, and running smoother
than in either of the two previous
games of the season, the score ought
to mount above thirty points. If
It Is operating no better than it has
bq far this season, tho number of
points will not' be hard to. count.

decided last night to start his regu

badly in pratice, using Indiana plays.
The freshmen were kept from scoring
only by the luck of the "scrubs" on
several occasions and It waB all the
varsity candidates could do to score
a single touchdown.
Only three of the regulars wore
used. Iddlnga played at left half,

Although numerous other colleges,

Its lack of practical utility at the

As a language study It has many of
the advantages of the old languages,

since esperanto Is a success largely
because It abandons much of tho" In

German and Latin valuable culture
But one cannot communicate with
others to any extent by means of
esperanto. The number of people
who use it fluently are exceedingly
few, especially in this country. The
advantage for tho man learned in
