SOUTH DAKOAT ENTHUSIASTS

TO OLD MEN ARE BACK IN LINEUP
Fault of Nebraska Rivals Lies In
8haky Team Work 'of the Backs
Who Have Not Trained To
By 8. ANRUD.
Vermillion, S. D., Sept. 29. (Spe
cial.) South Dakota football pros
pects are very bright this fall. A
largo number of old players, with
many new candidates, cause the en
thusiasts to dope out the best team
In the history of the university. The
university opened for class work the
16th of the month, but football hardly
started until the 20th. Tho largo
number of candidates makoB any
thing more than a tentative line-up
oven at this late day hard to conjure.
Of last year's team both guards,
both ends, one tackle, tho quarter
back, and one half back- are still in
the university. Three membesr of
former teams, a tackle, one half back,
and a guard have returned to college
Tho line-up" for the Nebraska game
will probably be as follows: Ghrlst,
Johnson, Richardson, and Eggen,
ends; H. Brown and Keeling tackles;
C. Brown, Sanders, Lyons guards;
Imbs and Pipal centers; Thackaberry
quarterback; C. Coffee full back; P.
Coffey left half back; Osborn and
Felber right half backs.
Of these men only one man is green
to the game. The fight for end and
guard positions is a bitter- one. While
the men who filled tho position last
year aro all in college, there are some
likely new men for tho positions, and
the few scrimmages have not as yot
settled the men who will start the
game at Lincoln. Tho candidates for
center havo both earned their mono
grams as guards. Tho tackles are a
good pair for a small college. H.
Brown, left tackle, weighs one hun
dred and ninety pounds, and has had
Speedy Northern Quarterback.
a lot of experience. Tho other tackle,
Keeling, weighs one hundred and sev
enty, and haB played on tho team two
yearst Thackaberry at quarter bldB
fair to bo a star this year. He is
very fast and handles punts accurate
ly. He kicks well. The two Coffees,
who will play back positions, are good
men and will bear watching.
Heavier than Usual.
The team will bo heavier than for
several years, and will tip the scales
at better than one hundred and sixty
The surplusage of material has
made tho taBk of preparation a diffi
cult one for a game so oarly in tho
season. Much time has been spont
in kicking and falling on tho ball, and
the line men and ends have been
thoroughly drilled In going down un
der punts. The team work of the
backs has proven Bhaky thus far.
Tho quarter Is the only man who
played on last year's team, and tho
digesting of the limited attack planned
for the Nebraska game has proven
difficult. The scrimmage attests the
fact that the backs have a lot of
driving power and tho team has at
least three men who will prove dan
gerous in a broken field.
There 1b material here for a first
class team this year, and had an as
sistant been provided to aid Coach
Whlttemore in whipping the men into
shape for tho Nebraska game tho
Cornhuskers would havo been given
a mighty good fight for tho honors.
The miserable handling of punts
which enabled Nebraska to scoro so
freely several years ago, If present
Indications hold good, will not repeat
itself Saturday, as the backs have
been working well In this department
of the game.

bers of Fraternal Order.
Acacia, the college branch of the
Masonic order, held open house last
evening to all university Masons at
tho new home of tho Nebraska organ

13th. A goodly number of the Masonic
representation of tho university were

requisite to membership is that the
Initiate be a Mason, but all student
Masons are not by any means Acacia
members. Membership Is by vote of

FRATERNITY MEN GET
BUSY AT SIX TONIGHT
RU8HINQ 8EA80N OPEN8 FOR TEN
NEW RULES COYERN THE PLEDGING
8eason Is Shortened and Intensified
With Other Minor Changes
At 6 o'clock 'this evening tho now
ruBhing rules adopted by tho inter
fraternity council last spring go Into
effect. These ruleB are a complote
change of tho old system as far as
the tlmo of the rushing season Is con
corned. Tho rules for tho past few
years allowed fraternities to pledgo
new students In the uunlvorslty a
short time beforo the mld-somestor
examinations after a month of strenu
oub rushing of these men. This year
tho fraternities are allowed but ton
days to rush now studonts In tho
school, and this now rule takes effect
tonight at six o'clock.
Tho present how rule allows tho
fraternities to entertain now men this
year In tho chapter houses for but a

period of ten days. That is between
six o'clock Friday, October 1st, and
twelve o'clock Monday noon, October
11th. This rule was adopted; by tho
members of tho Inter-fraternlty coun
cil after much discussion of tho old
rule. Tho chief objection to the old
rule was that there was too much
time spont by the members of the
various fraternities In rushing new
men, both to the detriment of the fra
ternity men themselves and the
rushees. Another factor In tho change
of the- rules was the expense Incurred
by the members of the fraternities In
entertaining men who they wished to
pledge. Thus it was thought advis
able by the members of the council to
change the rules by shortening the
length of the rushing season and- also
to have, It earlier in the year so that
the time -spent In entertaining the men
would not be so detrimental to the
studies of the frat men and those they
