CORNHUSKER SEASON TO
OPEN mm TODAY
SOUTH DAKOTA WILL TRY TO
NUMEROUS CHANGES IN
SEVERAL IMPORTANT SHIFTS IN
(OLE GIVES MEN STIFF PRACTICE
Usual Custom Violated and Nebraska
8quad Is Treated to Hard
Promptly at three-thirty this after
noon the Cornhuskers will line up
against the team from the University
or Sollth Dakota for the opening foot
ball game of the season. Both teams
are In good condition and from the
first kick-off to the final toot of the
roferee'B whistle there ought to be
Coach Whlttemore and his warriors
arrived on the Burlington last even
ing at five-forty and took up head
quarters at the Royal. Including the
coach there are eighteen men In the
squad, all of them husky looking fel
lows. The South Dakota team were
not accompanied by any band or root
ers, the distance being so great as to
make the trip too expensive for the
Coach Whlttemore wlien interviewed
at the Royal last evening was very
opthniBtic in regard to the outcome of
the game. While he said he did not
wish to be quoted as saying thte South
Dakota had a sure thing or that there
was any certainty of their winning
the game, he expressed his opinion
that tho result would not be one
sided, and that it would not do for
any three or four to one money to be
offered. He is very desirous of mak
ing as good a showing as possible
against Nobraska this year, and
thinks that tho score will not,, run up
very hig.h Ho has put his men thru
some very strenuous practice tho last
week, but aBlde from a few minor
bruises they are all in good condition.
Tho Cornhuskers, contrary to the
usual custom, were given some pretty
stiff practice yesterday afternoon,
about fifteen minutes of the time be
ing devoted to scrimmage work. The
shortness of the time has made tho
coaches develop the team a little more
rapidly than usual, and they have had
to take advantage or almoBt every
minute. Most or the South Dakota
men have the advantage of a week's
longer work, but they can hardly be
said to be In any better condition.
Tho work of the"" -squad yesterday
showed considerable improvement
The men are working faster and are
developing something that looks like
team work. There ought to he no
doubt as to the result of this after
noon's game. The only question 1b,
how large will the-score be?
As was announced In an earlier Is
sue, the game Is to be held at Antelope
Park, where they were played last
year. Tho new field Is not yet In con-1
dltlon and will not be before the Iowa
game. There 1b plenty of room In the
grandstand and bleachers to accommo
date everyone, so that no on eneed
stay away on this account. It Is
hoped and urged that a large crowd
will be out to welcome tho vlcltors
and to root for the Corrihuskers.
The officials of this afternoon's game
will be: pornoll, referee; Clark, field
judge, 'and Dr. Erwln, head linesman.
The following Is tho line-up of the
two yearns, with their comparative

In addition to these there are Mac
Donald (170), Swanson (185), Gutbur
let (180), Ford (157), Pearse (175),
and Hascall (140), all of whom will
probably see service in today's game.
As will be noticed, the Nebraska
team is a little ho heavier, their team
average being about 170, while that of
South Dakota Is about 162.
No Official Line-Up.
The above Une-up is about as near
the official aa can be had. Both may
be changed Bomewhat before the
game 1b started. For Nebraska, Bent
ley will probably begin at quarter. In
that case Franck will be used at left
half. Bentley haB not been well thlB
fall, and 1b not In good condition. In
case he doeB not start at quarter or 1b
taken out Franck will be switched to
quarter and Sturtzenegger put at left
half. Another doubtful position Is full
back. Rathbono or Hart will have the
place. In case Rathbone is started at
full back, Hart will be used at left
tackle. The rest or the team will start
tho game aB follows: Sturmes center,
Shonka and Wostrand guards, Temple
Jght tackle, Channer and Lbfgren ends
and Boltzer right hair.

Vermillion, S. D., Oct. 1. (Special.)
Coach Whlttemore started this
morning for Lincoln, Neb., with a -J
squad or twenty men. The Coyote
squad 1b in good condition physically
considering that several or the men
have been out only a few days. There
are no sprains or bruises as a conse
quence of the strenuous scrimmage
that the squad has been' put through
during the last three days, and the
team will line up about the way It
waB given out earlier in the week.
The South Dakotans realize that the
mere holding down or the score means
a great deal against Buch a formidable
opponent as Nebraska, and every man
will go in with a vengeance.
Wednesday arternoon the regulars
were sent against the scrubs for an
liour, and both tho open game and
straight line bucking was used. Tho
scrubs rought desperately and succeed
ed in holding the first team several
times'. Yesterday there was no reg
ular scrlmmago and most or the work
waB devoted to fast signal practice
