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

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

Manager Eager was the first speak

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

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

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

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.

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

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.

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
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
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.
