Although Nebraska would have been

Houri valley if Kansas had boon beat

has yet to meet both Iowa and Mis

feats Iowa and loses to Missouri then
Matters will be complicated and three

Is the, oho that Nobraskans fear and
that is that Kansas, may win both of

Walter Eckersall Says He Has'Seen
All' Important Teams But tiohe '"
Has Stopping Ability of
Crawfordsvllle Men.
(Special to Daily Nobraskan.)
Tho WnbaBh' college football team,
which meets tho strong University of
Nobrnska olovon oh Thanksgiving Day
in tho closing game of tho season, is
choson. from tho student body com
posed of less thun 300 men. Notwith
standing the small number of students .
at Wabash, her athlotlc teams for the
past half dozen years havo competed
successfully with teams choson from
schools having several limes as. many
students. Tho many pludky athletic
battles which tho Wabash team havo
fought havo earned for tno players
tho namo of tho "Littlo Giants," by
which Wabash athletic teams aro
known throughout tho middle west.
For tho paBt four yoars the Wabash
football teams havo been coached, by
Francis M. Cayou, the celebrated Car
lisle Indlnn football star. This year,
howevor, Ralpn Jones, a new man, has
been at the helm and by his wonder
ful work ns a coach has easily main
tained the reputation established ' by
Cayou. Tho Little GlUnts, coached by
Jonos, are thlB yoar fully as strong as
any other team 'of Littlo Giants which
Cayou has dovoloped.
Is Growing 8trbnger.
Although tho team's record of vic
tories this season has been somewhat
marred because soveral star players
havo beent out of tho gnmes with In
juries, the' team that meets tho famous
Nobraskans on Turkey Day will be
tho atrongcBt that ever represented
tho scarlet of "Old WabaBh." Dob
bins, the fast end rush; Garver, the
great punting half back; Hopkins, the
giant guard, and Starbuck, the hard
lino plunging full back, who havo been
out of moBt of tho games this season
nro now in flno shape and all will prob
ably bo seen against Nebraska. Har
gravo,. tho wonderful littlo quarter
back, has been out of. three of tho
six contests played this year by Wa
bash, on account of injuries, but he
too, is now in splendid condition, in
ho game with tho great Notro Dame
eleven last Friday, which Notro Dame
won 8 to 4, maklngf two place kicks
to ono drop kick by Wabash, Hargravo
did tho punting and his spirals aver
aged 45 yards to tho' game. His was
equally as good as that ever dono by
Carver, tho regular punter, who can
consistently punt fifty ynrds during
Average Weight 160.
Tho WabttBhteam averages, but J60
pounds, but what it lacks in weight it
moro than majces up in speed and
nerve and lighting spirit Indeed, tho
characteristic lighting spirit of tho
Littlo "Giants Is noted wherever tho
team has played and it has onablod
tho scarlet. to win many victories. A;
direct caso in point is last year's bat-,
tlq with St. Louis unlvorsity, which
defeated Nebraska. Wabash won from
St. Louis 12 to 11 in ono of tho best
games over played in St Louis. St.
Louis opterod tho game fully expects
lug to roll up tho score. At the end1
of tho first half the. cquntwas iiVtp:
0 in. favor of Missdurlas. But Wa
bash, although npt coming frdroi $is
HourJ, had to be ''sbbyraj" , In 'tho,
second half tho team's fighting spirit
was aroused and ,the inen played as
they had never played before. ' Thqt
"twq touchdowns made agalpst' tlio
heavy St. Louis elevens wonthq vic
tory for thorn. This, yeair 3t Louis;
dofoated Wabash 4 to, 0, a place klclc
gecldlii gtho game. TEo mighty Frank

" Frbni' a Kansas View.
Tho following appeared In the Kan
sas City Star Sunday morning under n
datq lino:
'dole's Nebraska CornhUskers,
proud and over-confident quaffed from
tho cup. of d9feat today and drank Its
bitterest dregs. In the Kansas Jay
hawkerB Colo's men encountered n
sturdier, craftier foo and wore com
pletely and doclslvoly whipped in a'
dazzling gridiron, bdttlo by a scoro of
20 to 5. It was a stunning reverso ln
tho Nebraska camp and with It the!
CornhuskorB' hopes for a MlBsburl val
ley conference championship havei
boon wrecked and shattered on the
Bhoals of despair, while tho proud
mantle of the valley premiership bids!
fair to rest upon the shoulders of
Kennedy's matchless warriors from'
tho land or tho Jayhaw. Tho vlfctory
achloved by Kansas did not como
through chance. Tho hick of tho bat
tlo favored tho Jayhawkors, but tho
Kansans wore more than a match for
their opponents Jn every department
of tho gamo. They excelled tho Corn
huskers in generalship, but kicked
tnem by a decisive margin, played su
perb football on tho defense and
iuggett tho oval with' cdtapultlc power.
It was a victory so clean' cut as to
le'avenp room for,, doubt or dispute
tnnt tho better football team had won
tho laurels.
"Tho result furnished such an mv
expected form reversal that tho sup
porters, of tne uornhuskors aro dazed
from astonishment. The Nebraska
public had anticipated ii hard fought
battle, but tiot a Cornhuskor rootor
even had dreamed that Colo's vaunted
warriors wore in danger of defeat.
Tho finish, however, could have been
spelled on tho Nebraska semaphore
boforo the powder had blown away
from the first exchange of fire."
Business Suspended to Celebrate Over
Jayhawker Victory.
Lawrcnco, Has.-, Nov. 14. Every
thing in Lawrcnco is suspended to
night in celebration of tho victory of
the Jaynawker football team at Lin
coln this afternoon. Hundreds ot stu
dents ftro parading" tho streets shout
fng and singing, and tho wholo town
Is overjoyed at tho news'. Tho crowds
began to collect directly after dark,,
and a parade was formed at tho park
on South Massachusetts street, and
after marching all over town tho
search began for material for a mam
moth bonfire. The merchants all over
town began to sot out their empty
boxes this afternoon as soon as the
news of the victory came In, for tho
wliblo town is nB jubilant as tlio" uni
versity. The enthusiasm is contagious.
" What do'you-kno w about that score VL
lstho salutation that tho staid busi
ness' men hurl at each other as" they
pass dn tho street.'
'Lp6k8 to mb like a clean swcop
this year," is tho invariable reply.
Every place of busines lb town kept
bulletins of the game posted as fast
as the news came in, so intense nnd
general was tlm interest, and, business
had to take a jack seat. Students and
gray-haired citizens rubbed shoulders
before, thft Newspaper bulletins all af
