any serious consideration and In fact
every one ,of tfco games was merely
a help to Kansas in perfecting her
team for the later games of her sched
ule. In none of tho games wero tho
Jayhawkers forced to employ any
other tactics than the simplest kind
of football, except for experimental
purposes, and none of tho games was
hard enough fought to cause any of
tho KansaB players to contract any
injuries serious enough to affect their
Nebraska's schedulo, on the other
hand, reveals an entirely different 'set
pf circumstances. Up utitll laBt Sat
urday the CornhuBkers bad met the
following teams: Peru, Doano, Orin
nell, Mlnesota, Haskell, Iowa, Ames
and Kansas. Since October 3d, the
date of tho Doano game, Nebraska
has played bIx gruelling games, every
one of which demanded hard and care
ful play, jind three of which wero ab
solutely fierce. For bIx weeks thoy
have been working hard without ,a
let up and for, tho last four'woeks tljey
have been barely ahleito)j:ecovorlfnqm

struggle in time to go lhto another.
As a result of this terrible season
tho players wero simply Jagged ou

In thlB manuor the Jayhawkors Yoro

tlmo tho Nobraska-Kansas game rolled

which is or a much moro serious na

and thoro is certainly good reason
for boliovlng that thoro Is, tho Kansas
victory will not bo so sweet to tboBO
Kansas supporter who aro truo
sportsmen, nor will 'It bring honor to
Kansas Had Signals.
The chargo is that tho Kansas .play
ers, or at least somo of tho players,
know tho signals which wero 'used
by tho Nebraska tonni. It Is bald
that when tho signal for Chaloupka
tq carry tbo ball around left cpd wob
given, a Kansas man would invariably
call out "look out for Chaloupka.."
and tho same thing was truo of quar
ter back runB, forward passes and
several other pot formations of tho
CornbAiBkerflV This 'fact Is vouched
for' by sdvoral iftbtnberB of tho Ne
Ong thbng JsabHoJutoJy certain, and
that Is that thq Kansas teamt if thoy
cjld. npt knqw Nebraska's signals, had
developed tho(acuJJx. oJUJntulUon to
a rcmarV-blq degree .and, woroabld
to dovlno tho preclso spot toward
which all of tho Cornhusker playB
wero to bo directed.
In considering tho game, It' was very
evident front'-Aib start that tho Corn
huskers woren'fc playing half tho game
that they had playdd earlier In tho
season. Thoy appeared to bb dead Tin
their" fqet and tho attacks of tho Karl-
saS Sackflbld1 were Btbsd with dif
ficulty, and often gre'at galUs had been
