A GREAT FOE.
Tho CurllHlo IndliuiH aro by far tho
groatoBt football team that any Ne
braska olovon over faced, and their
remarkable victory over the Corn
huskers yostorday wiih fairly won and
Justly deserved. Probably the Hcore
on tho IndtaiiH' Hide wuh a little too
high to bo representative of the rel
ative strength of the two tcaniH, but
thoro 1h no doubt that the CurllsleB
woro entitled to the victory by a wldo
margin.
It 1b nothing to the dlHcrcdlt of tho
Nebraska pluyors to have been defeat
ed by tho wonderful machine of Coach
Warner's. Tho visitors luivo one of
tho best elevens in tho country one
superior to anything in tho yest and
the equal of Pennsylvania, or the host
of the east. They have been trained
for months oven years In tho most
succossful plays of the east, whero tho
football played Is the greatest in the
world. Thoy played the football of
the east against Nebraska, and as us
ual when the west and east meet on
the gridiron the latter triumphed.
Nebraska started the game in bril
liant stylo. by making the ilrst touch
down. But when tho Carlisle machine
opened up in tho next ton minutes
after this touchdown was made it was
obvious what tho result would bo.
Thoro was no stopping tho redmen.
Nebraska could not do it, nor would
It have been posslblo for any other
IJ4I , O. TWO STORES 1415 O. these the finest shirts
western eleven. Tho Indians were de
feated by Minnesota, but it was at a
tlmo when they were crippled . and
could not play fast football. Yester
day the Carllales were in tip top form
and Nebraska was an easy victim for
them. Tholr speed, variety of attack,
Interference and forward passes were
unlike anything over soen on a Ne
braska held before and they bewild
ered and dazed tho Cornhuskers. Af
ter the first five minutes of play Ne
braska never had a look in for a vic
tory. Tho Cornhuskers, however, played a
good game in nearly every respect.
There was one weakness, though, that
bus been apparent all season and must
bo removed before Nobruska can havo
a truly great team. It was the mis
erable tackling. Nearly all of the
Nebraska players caught their oppon
ents too high In attempting to stop
them. They grabbed them around the
waist or head and seldom prevented
tholr advance. Tackles at tho feet
would havo saved Nebraska several
ppints..
Thjs weakness- was not tho fault of
"King" Colo. It was tho players'.
Th,ey had boon instructed often
enough" as to how to play and were
alone, to blamo.
.1 But when ovory thing Is considered
it was not a bad game, and Nobras-
ka's playors have no right to feol
ashamed of thouiHolvoB. Thoy played
good ball this fall and won a great
reputation for tholr own and for tho
slato unlvorslty. Tho experlonco of
the Carlisle game will he of immense
value to tho coach and playorB who
return to tho gridiron work next fall.
Then thoy can proceed to give Ne
braska a team that will go through
the season with a clean slate and ro
gain the Missouri valloy championship
title.

Makes Strong Appeal.
Dr. Condra was the second speaker
and his talk was a Htlring appeal to
university nlen to accomplish greater
things and stand together for higher
Ideals. He spoke as follows:
"The time has come when wo need
more recruits If we are to turn out
a winning football team. It Is your
duty to see that every good football
player from the high schools of tho
state comes to tho University of Ne
braska. We want the time to come
and to come soon, when we shall get
all the good men from the state. We
need a hundred men in our football
s(uad, and we must have them if wo
are to turn out a winning team.
"We need new yells, yells that mean
something, yolls that are worth while,
yells that express the spirit of tho
school. We must wake up to our
needs or we will be left behind by the
other colleges of the west. We are
progressing but bo are all tho other
schools. Wo must have an athletic
Held, and If tho people don't provide
a Held then wo will go out among tho
business men of Lincoln and got a
field and name it not Nebraska Field
but Bill's Field."
Dr. Maxey was next called upon and
spoke brlelly. He declared that in
Coach Cole we have tho temperament
needed in a coach to produce a great
team. In speaking of tho athletic
field ho declared that we have made
up our minds to have an athletic field
and that wo aro going to have it by
next year.
Must Have Field.
Governor Sheldon -was the last
speaker of tho evening. On rising he
declared that when at tho game today
ho met Jack Best and the tears woro
running down his face aB ho saw how
the Carlisle game was coming out.

for Jack Best, and they were given
with enthusiasm. Continuing his talk
he spake as follows:
"It Is-a shame and a disgrace to the
people of Nebraska that the cadets of
tho state university have to go to the
alleys and streets to get a place to
drill, and that tho football team has to
go to a professional hall park. The
school is growing and it has got tol
got more room protty soon or it is
going to bo badjy cramped. We have
already waited too long. It is better
now to look after the needs of tho
campus than to wait until the land
becomes oven more expensive. If the
University of Minnesota can spend
v 00,000 for enlarging tho campus of
its university, it would seem that the
University of Nebraska could at leust
afford to spend $150,000 for the same
purpose. The state of Nebraska ought
to provide a campus at least largoL
enough to properly care for the unl
verslty."

CHICAGO. Nov. 2. Northwestern
and Chicago have resumed football
relations. Tho city gridiron cham
pionship, always a big feature of the
local football year before the suspen
sion of the game at hlvanston three
years ago, will again take the boards
next season, when tho maroons and
purples meet for the first time since
PJOTi.
Coach A. A. Stagg of the maroons
announced the plans for tho revival
ol football rivalry between the two
schools yesterday, following tho re
quest Tor a gamo made by Director
Glllosby of Northwestern. Only the
usual formality or securing tho con
sent of the Midway faculty remianB to
clinch the date, but tho maroon pro
fessors are as anxious as Coach Stagg
to play the Methodists, and they will
offer no objections.
The game will in all urobability be
played at Marshull field. No doilnlto
date has been considered as yet. It
is likely, however, that the maroon
purple contest will bo either the first
or second game on Stagg's schedule,
as the latter part of tho MidwryBdied
ule is taken up with tentativo datesT
Purple Anxious to Play.
Tho- purple rooters aro anxious to
get at tho maroons again, dosplte tho
fact that Northwestern suffered, over
whelming defeat at tho hands of Chi
cago In the two last games. Tho Chi
cago game will be tho "big" contest
of the purple five-game schedule and
will be a heavy proposition to handle
early in the season, but the Metho
dists are willing to stand this dis
advantage in order to get back on the
Chicago list.
While the Chicago-Northwestern
game had coine to be an accepted fact
each season before tho late renuncia
tion at Kvanston it was considered
likely that tho purples would feel like
holding off for another season. Di
rector Glllosby nailed this possibility
by getting In his bid early, and as a
result olther Indiana or Purdue will
have to bo dropped by Stagg.
Coach Stagg now has contracts with
at a common price.
Minnesota, Wisconsin and Cornell, and
an Illinois game Is understood, as well
as tho Northwestern contest. With
five games In sight, Stagg Intends to
hold up his Olans temporarily, and it
Is not likely that any more games
will bo scheduled until well along in
tno winter.
It is believed at the Midway that
Indiana may bo lopped off tho schedule
owing to tho departure of Coach "Jim
my" Sheldon from tho camp of the
Hooslers. Coach Stagg said yesterday
that ho hud no idea of the final make
up of his schedule, but that one of
tlie Chicago's traditional rivals might
hijjve to be turned down next year.
Iowa.
IOWA CITY, la.. Dec. 2. That tho
desire of the Universty of Iowa and
Ames student bodies that athletic
relations between the two institutions
he resumed in tho near future will bo
soon realized is the belief hero. Iowa
is anxious 'to play Ames in basket-ball,
and, though no statement will be
given out by any member of tho board
in control of athletics, there is reason
to believe .that the board would ap
prove a contest with tho agglo flvo the
samo as any institution, and that all
previous negotiations between tho two
schools will bo carried on ns though
thero had never been a soveronco of
relations for one 'year.

Michigan.
DETROIT, Dec. 2. Fielding H. Ygst,
coach of the Michigan football team,
arrived this morning from Philadel
phia and other eastern cities, where
he has been since his eleven was
trounced by Syracuse on Nov. 21.
He said that the report of Ills going
to manage an electric railway was
true.
"I've been interested in the Great
Falls Electric and Power company of
Nashville and Chattanooga for some
time," said the "hurry-up" man. "I
understand I'm to have protty full con
trol of Its operation from now on. I'll
leave here Thursday night for Chatta
nooga, and, after sizing up tho situa
tion, will decide whether or not 1 1

football? Hardly. I'll see when next
December comes what I'll do in that
game.

Illinois.
URBANA, 111., Dec. 2.-r-John Schoin
mer, the tall maroon, has been sug
gested as a posslblo coach for tho
University of Illinois basket-ball five,
in tho event that ho abandons track
and baseball work at Chicago. The
Illini, who havo a vision of a cham
pionship five, believe that "Long
John" would be a cracking good
coach.
Last year Illinois dispensed with a
basket ball coach, because it was im
possible to secure Just tho kind of in
structor wanted. So far thiB year
Captain Poppeffuss has been in
charge of tho squad, If it is decided
not to enter into negotiations with
Schommer, It Is Improbable that a
basket ball coach will bo secured at
all.
Basket ball practice began this
week, a large squad being out. Tho
