AN UNKNOWN QUANTITY.
Tho Nebraska conchoB aro groatly
worried over tho outcome bt tho gamo
wlj,h tho Haskoll IndlniiB this after
noon. They fonr that the redskins
muy provo too strong for tho crippled
CornhuBkors and manage to get tho
gamo by a small scoro. For OiIb rea
son they nro not predicting anything
In regard to tho contest othor than to
admit that tho gamo" will bo n hard
eno for Nebraska.
So llttlo is known regarding tho
strength of the Indians that the
coaches aro preparod for tho beet
kind of n game tho Nebraska playors
can put up. During tho weok "King"
Colo has not conducted training with
tho Idea that tho game today would bo
only a- practlco contest. Ho has flg-
urod that it would bo a gamo fully as
hal-d aB tho one with Orlnnoll was,
and will glvo tho Indiana tho strongest
opposition ho haB. But today that op
position is not as strong as tho No-
, braska. rooters. WOuld. like to havolL
Tho Cornhuskors aro badly crippled
up. Krogor, Boltzor, ana Minor aro
In the worst condition of uny of tho
. players. Boltzor has boon suffering
from an injured shouldor for the last
twb wooks and is in no Bhapo to play
' a fast gamo. Ho may bo In tho con
toat today for a wlillo, but probably

will not play all tho game. Minor's
ankle has troubled him all week and
is Hablo at any time In a gamo to
cause his retirement. Fullback Kro
ger Is In, tho worst shape of any of
tho men. Ho has wator on tho right
knee and under any condition will not
be able to play until tho Iowa game
and possibly will bo kept out of tho
Btruggle for tho rest of tho season.
With threo men on the. team In such
ehapo as those aro, Nebraska will have
to play with special watchfulness to
day or thero may bo a repetition of
tm tho Cornell-Ames gamo last Saturday
4 when tho aggies lost to what wob con
sidered a third-rate school,
It Is very probable that tho avail
able Cornhuskors will be called upon
to play as hard a game as they dU
last week at Minnesota and they
should be prepared to do whatever is
necessary to win. Tho .Indians are
going to light hard and it will take
better playing than Grlnnoll encoun
tered hero to. defeat them.

WHEN NOT TO ROOT.
Probably one of the moat unsportfl
manlike Incidents that ever mnrred re
unions between Minnesota and Ne
IriiHka at a football gamo occurred at
tho contest with the Gophers on North
rop field a week ugo. Before tho
game wns started tho yell leaders In
slructed tho Minnesota rooters ns fol
lows: "When Minnesota has the ball
don't yoll, but when Nebraska has it
yoll as loud as you can." The rooters
followed out theso Instructions. But
the entire crowd did not approve of
thorn, and since that game tho Min
nesota lenders have been severely crit
icised by cortain members of tho fac
ulty and by some of tho students. It
was such a trick as Nobraska rootors
havo nover been guilty of doing, and
one that they alwayB try to supprosa.
Bolow aro published two lotters on tho
notion of tho Minnesota rooters, one
wns written by a Gopher law student
to the Minnesota Dally, and tho othor
is a communication to th'e Dally No
brnsknn from a 1908graduate.
The Minnesota letter:
"Editor Minnesota Dally:
"At the Mlnnosota-NobraBka gamo on
October 17, an Incident occurrod
which ought to bo brought to the at
tention of tho student body. Boforo
tho gamo commenced, one of tho root
er captains callod out to tho rootors":
'When Minnesota hna the ball don't
ell, but when Nebraska haB It, yoll
as loud as you can.' Thero woro
some hlssoB and cries of 'shame' from
the people who woro in tho section
noxl to tho rootors and who could hear
tho remark, but no attention was paid
to them. Tho ovldent Instruction was
tc drown the signals of tho Nebraska
field captain so that the rest of tho
team could not hear him.
"This was neither sportsmanlike nor
was it a orodit to Minnesota's charac
ter aB a host Fault la not found par
ticularly with the rooter captain, but
with tho spirit which haB boon for
Itered at tho University in recent
years, which allows those sort of tac
tics. It Bavors of nutckerlsm and is
most unsportsmanlike. Thero ia hard
ly a visitor from the oast who does
not notice this method of rooting at
once and Who does not condemn it.
Thero Ib no college of reputable stand
ing anywhere in tho east at which
if Buch rooting woro indulged in, con
demnation would not fall from tho
collogo mates of tho mon who did it

bb well as from all of tho colleges. It
Is not a mattor of lack of proper col
lego spirit that has fostored such
short sport tactics, but seems to bo tho
result of a custom which has grown
up, to which llttlo attention has been
"No one belioves more thoroughly
than I do in cheering tho homo team
nnd there has beon hardly a game in
.the last fourteen years which I have
not attended, and every time havo
been hoarse for weeks afterward as
tho result of yelling for the Minnesota
team. At some games, the effect to
drown signals -has boon more pro
nounced than at others. Why ca,n't it
bo done away with entlroly and show
tho reBt of he western colleges that
Minnesota, for one, has a trjue cour
teous college spirit and that it is pos
sessed of real sportsmen?
"When we go to Chicago on the
thlrty-firat, let us give our feam all
'the support we can and cheer thom to
tho fullest extent of our capacity, but
let us alfio give tho Chicago team
ovory opportunity to play the gamo as
they know how nnd not try to drown
out their signals, or, as 'bleachers,
Interefere with. their playing., I firm
ly believe that there is. enough of tho
true sportsman about the "Minnesota
rooters, that when their attention is
called to this matter, thoy will endorse
this position heartily and act. upon
II. " '
"CHARLES S. ALBERT, Law '04."
Tho Nobraska lotter:
Lincoln, Nob., October 23, 1908.
To Editor of Dally Nebraskan:
"When our team has the ball, keep
still, but when Nebraska has tho ball,
yell your heads off so they can't hear
tho signals." This bit of advice was
given to the Minnesota rooters by one
of the cheer leaders at last Saturday's
game on Northrop fiold.
This ia a good example of rooting
and though discourteous, shows what
tho student body can do for its team
by organized rooting. Now it Is up to
us as loyaUNebraaka students to get
out and help our team with such en
thusiasm and spirit as has nover be
fore been eon or heard anywhere.
.We must do It in order to properly
show our appreciation of our boya.
When a team could stand, as dll
the Nebraska team, under their goal
posts and repulse tho furious attacks,
of a heavier team, flushed with appar
ently certain victory while thousands
of rooters clamored loudly for a touch
down (and this wns accomplished not
only once, but several times) and
when this team with wonderful recu
perotlve power nnd atick-to-it-Ivonoss
could carry the ball back to tho mid
dle of tho field after thla nerve-racking,
muscle-straining defense, then we
Bhould Bay: "To such a team too much
praise can not be given." So, hats
off to our coach, our captain and ovory
member of our great and glorious foot
Now once again let us all get out
to tho rest of the games and cheer
our boys with systematic yelling and
singing and show thom wo really do
appreciate their efforts, but let us not
forget to be courteous in ovory way
to visiting playors. When wo are
wildly cheering our boys lot us romera
her Nebraska's reputation for cour
tesy from tho bleachers as well as
"Bquare" playing on tho field.
