Dr. Condra gave a good talk, mak ing an appeal to the students to show the right kind of college spirit, and to help the team win by going to Min nesota and showing the players that everybody Is with them In this great game.

BEST DEFENSE SHOWN SO FAR In Some rallies held at Nebraska have hpn hnttftr attended but few had a bettei display of enthusiasm .and real I team to Minneapolis and help the team win. one uiougiu me uornnumters old Nebraska spirit than the one which took place In Memorial hall at 7:30 last evening. It was a real en thusiastic ocaslon upon which the loy al Cornhusker supporters let Uooso their spirit and "stirred up things" for the football team and the excur sion to Mlnnteota, Friday. The hour at which It was-hold Tiept down the attendance hut the crowd filled tine Tower floor of the hall and the first five rows on each side of the gallery. Many of thosjtt who Were there had just come from distant places In the city to show their en thusiasm for the team, and thoy did It In the right way. Thecam, If bo fore last evening It had felt that the students wore not "behind It," had changed Its opinion after the rally. Much Cheering. The crowd cheered all the speakers and every mention of defeating the Go phers was the signal for lound shout ing and clapping of hands. The stu dents made it plain that they all feel the CornhuBkers are going to triumph at Northrop, Saturday afternoon. They all realized that this Is a golden op portunity In the history or Nebraska football and they endeavored to give vent to their appreciation of that fact by doing the right thing In the line of rooting. Short speeches were given by Dr. Maxey, Coach Cole, Dr. Condra, Man ager Eager, Captain Harvey, "Pip" Cooke, Ernest Kroger, and MIsb Zelda Branch. The rooters demanded that "Bill" Chaloupka address them, but when they started the cry "Chaoup ka," the big tackle fled from the build ing In consternation. Manager Eager was the first speak er to address the crowd. He explained the plans for the excursion to Min nesota saying that the train would leave Friday evening at 6 o'clock, ar riving In Minneapolis early the fol lowing morning. He said the tickets for the Tound trip were $7.20 and could be secured at Harry Porter's store on O street On these tickets the passengers may return on any reg ular train out of Minneapolis up to and Including the 8 o'clock special Sun day evening. Dr. Maxey Makes 8peech. Dr. Maxey was called upon and after telling a story gave an interest ing talk on the prospects of the team, winding up his remarks by declaring that, he thought Nebraska would get the skins of the Gophers. Coach Cole was the next speaker and amid great applause found his way to the platform. He made an earnest appeal to the students to get behind the team and show It that Ne braska "had the spirit" He thought Nebraska's chances of winning over the Gpphers very good. Captain Harvey gave a short talk, saying that he felt the team would win and all the members appreciated the support of the students. "Pip" Cooke In his talk said this would be his third trip to Minnesota. The team had always shown the Gophers a good time on the other occasions, but this trip would do better than show them good time It -would win, Kroger and Rooting. Earnest Kroger explained how much help good rooting Js to the players, could them. win with good rooting behind NEBRA8KA TO BE REPRESENTED. Six a Hard, Fast 8crlmmage the 'Var sity Regains the Confidence of the Rooters Leaves for North Tomorrow. Delegates Will Go to Columbus . -"' Bible Conference. The first International student blblo conference will be held in Columbus, Ohio, from October 22 to 25. Nebras ka Y. M. C. A. will be represented by six delegates, the full quota allowed to Bchools of Nebraska's class. The dele gates selected at last night's cabinet meeting are as follows: J. L. Der Kin deren, general secretary; E. W. Hills, president; "W. H. Reynolds, chairman of bible study committee; M. V. Ar nold, bible study committeeman: Pro fessor F. D. Barker, member of ad visory board; and L. C. Oberlles, re ligious work director at the City Y. M. C. A., who goes as an alumni mem ber. It'Isthe purpose of this conference to bring to the attention of the stu dents of North America, as never be fore, the mighty, message of the Bible to Individual and national life, to se cure through the assistance of college faculties, alumni and Influential stu dents a greater development of North American student Bible work. Mr. John R. Mott, the great world student evangelist, will preside over the conference and such men as Bish op W. F. McDowell, of Chicago; Prrf. H. B. Wright, of Yale, and Robert E.

There will be about 1200 delegates al together and there is no question 'but that the Influence of this gathering will be felt In the life of the church throughout the entire world. For the first tlmo In over a week the 'varsity last night put up an ex hibition of real football during tho short scrimmage work which was In dulged In. After the rather heartless work which tho squad put up laBt week, which was doubtless occasioned by the continued Inclemency of tho weather, tho hard, faBt play which they indulged In last evening went far to reBtoro the confidence of both the players and rooters in tho ability of the Cornhuskers to humble tho Gophers next Saturday. Early In tho season not a porson could be found among tho host of Ne braska's "faithful" who would con sider for a moment tho possibility of Nebraska's suffering defeat at Minne sota's hands thlB year. An unprece dented number of experienced, letter men had returned. Both on paper and In practice the team looked to bo a winner. This spirit of, optimism pro vailed until after tho Doano' gamo, which proved to be a romp for tho Cornhuskers, who won by 43 to 0. This easy win by the team and tholr alleged Invincibility seemed temporari lyToir,,K!ngSJCoie,B pupflswItFa spirit of overconfldence and according ly the squad went through a short period in which there was a slight let up In hard, persevering work. It Is an experience which every team goes through at somo stage of tho gamo, and It often occurs more than once during the season. Have Hit Their Pace. MI88 TAYLOR TALKS TO GIRL8 Y. W. C. A. Bible Study Course Being Well Received. Many university girls are availing themselves of the opportunity, to hear MIsb Angy Manning Taylor of Chicago, who conducting a special bible study course under the direction of the .Y. W. C. A. this week. MIsb Taylor's clear; logical method of presenting her talks appeals to the student mind, her winning personality having much to do with ' impressing the hearer with the worth of what she says. She Is 'sincere In her belief and her familiari ty with her subject Is unquestioned. Monday Miss Taylor discussed the study of the bible as a book, in the same manner as any .other book would be studied. Miss Taylor then- pro ceeded to anafyze the gospel of John, Yesterday Miss Taylor taught from the .first four chapters of John. Each noon this week Miss Taylor speaks at tho Y. W. 0. A. rooms from 11:50 to 12:10, and each afternoon from 5 to 6 p. m. she wll speak in the Science hall of the Temple. Notice Engineer. ' Tho engineering society will hold Its regular meeting tonight at 7:30 in the sclencfe hall of the Temple. AH engineers are .urgently requested to be present. In addition to working hard, as thoy have been doing Individually, tho men are now working hard as a team; they are getting together on playB, and judging from last evening's scrim mage, they have hit a pace which will bring them victory Saturday as well as In tho later games of tho season. Tho whole team sems to be possessed with tho desire to get Into the game and do something and they certainly did it last night. Tho 'varsity put. up the strongest defense which they have exhibited this year and only occasion-. ally were tho scrubs .able to make any distance. The 'varsity line was im pregnable and not only were- tho scrubs unable to gain through it, but frequently trio 'varsity forwards would break through and stop the scrubs for big losses. Chaloupka and Frum both showed up spectacularly yesterday in carry ing the ball, as well as on defensive work. Tho center trio, Harto, Collins and Ewlng, were a veritable stone wall and the scrubs could find no openings through them at all. Captain Jim Harvey and Johnson on the ends put up tholr usual classy exhibition. On account of Beltzer being out of the gamo with a sore shoulder, they were not called uj?on to receive any forward passes, but on the defensive as vell as in interfering on the offense, they delivered the' goods. One characteris tic of Captain Harvey's playing Is on especially good one to follow: On, the offensive, In interfering he goes after a man and stays after him, making sure that he Is down and out so far as stopping that play is concerned. Tho captain never lets up on his man. un til tho ball Is down and, the whistle has blownand sometimes1 he forgets to stop even then. Backfleld changes. In tho backfleld yesterday neither Kroger nor Beltzer were In the Hue- nMAAt.nt ImIiiwIaM Mt A4.lj A la i uy uu mwuuii ui mjuums ivwiieu iu peared again nt loft half and Sturtz neggor and Tbmplo filled Krogor'B placo at full. - Minor will havo re moved all his conditions this wook and so will bo oliglblo to play at Min neapolis Saturday. This Is exceeding ly good nows, ns with Krogor and Beltzer both on tho hospital list, an other halfback Is badly needed. Hugo BIrknor. played at right half through out the scrimmage and continued his oxcellont Bhowlng on tho offense With tho advantage of spoed and weight, BIrknor has tho stuff in him for an Ideal halfback and ho Is demonstrat ing It nt every scrimmage At quarterback, Bontloy began tho scrimmage, but aftor a fow mtnutetf re tired in favor of Cooko, who ran tho team with lotB of ginger. "Pip" pullod off Boveral of his sensational quarter back runB which last year so thrilled tho rooters, and a sturit or two of this kind against tho Gophers Saturday may bo enough to win for Nebraska. Details of the Scrimmage. Tho 'varsity kicked off to Mussou, whp returned 15 yards. On a dolayed pass, Slaughter made 8 yards around loft ond, but on tho next down tho scrubs surrendered tho ball to tho 'varsity on nn unsuccessful forward paBS. On tho first down for tho 'varsity Chaloupka was downed for a loss by Franck and was slightly Injured. On tho noxt "play Frum made 5 yards around right end and Birkner followod with 15 more around tho other ond. The 'varsity failed to work tho for ward pass and wore penalized 15 yards, retaining the ball. BIrknor punted to Hascall and on tho first down the scrubs netted 10 yards on"Trforwar(rpaBS Thoy failed to gain on a lino buck and in attempt ing a tandom play they fumbled and Harvoy fell on tho ball. Minor made 25 yards around right ond and Birkner added 4 moro on a croBs-buck. Tho 'vnrslty got their signals twisted and when Collins passed tho ball no ono received it and Bentley fell on It for, a loss of 10 yards. On a quarterback run Bontloy was downed for a loss, but BIrknor made 20 yards on a fake punt At this point Temple replaced Sturtznegger at fullback and Cooko went In at quarter. The 'varsity lost the ball on a fumble and it was tho scrubs' ball on tho 'varsity's 45-yard lino. On an attempted quarterback run tho scrubs lost 10 yards and then Slaughter was downed for a loss by Chaloupka. McCarthy mado 10 yards on a delayed pass, but on tho noxt play Harvey throw Slaughter for a lpss of 8 yards. Tho scrubs attempted an end run, but fumbled and BUI Cha loupka got the ball and ran for a touchdown. Shortly after this, "Pip" Cooke pulled off a sensational 65-yard run for a touchdown, recalling to the root ers somo of his spectacular stunts last year. Tho coach gave the 'varsity the ball on the scrubs' 45-yard line. Tem ple made 4 yards through center and Frum mado it first down by a 'good gain around right end. Cooko mado 5 yards on a fake play and on tho next down got away for his second touchdown, after shaking off and stiff arming several tacklers. ' The playing of the 'varsity through out, the scrimmage was the best of the year and evidently they are preparing to put up a game against Minnesota Saturday which will reward the No braska rooters for taking advantage of the excursion to Minneapolis. The team will leave for Minneapolis over, the Burlington at 6 o'clock to morrow evening. APPOINT THEIR STAFF EDITOR8 OF CORNHU8KER READY FOR WORK.
