Franck Plays Good Game for Ne

8plendld Forward Passes
for Good Gains.
It was a big Burprlso to two thousand
enthusiasts that 6 to 6 tie score.
Thousands of loyal Nebraska students
who wore wont to see their doughty
champions mow down the strongest
teams In the west were surprised by
the onward march of tho South Da
kotans. But they were loyal supporters of
tho Scarlet and Cream and supported
the team by enthusiastic rooting when
tho players rallied In tho second half.
Two outside kicks and a beautifully
executed forward pasB wore then re
sponsible for tho only touchdown Ne
braska made. That score tied South
Dakota's first half record and saved
tho Cornhuskers from defeat
II was a good tost, just the thing
Nebraska has needed, for it showed
up tho weak points of tho team. Both
coach and players now understand
their problem a little better than they
did a week ago and they "know what
they will have to do in tho next two
woekB If they expect to stand a ghost
of a show when they meet Minnesota
In Omaha a week from next Saturday.
Tho outlook does not look very en
couraging for victory, for while Ne
braska was holding South Dakota to a
tlo s,core here, Minnesota was walk
ing over Iowa at Minneapolis to the
tune of 41 to 0. But much may hap
pen In two weeks.
Fumbling Did It.
- Tho failure to win Saturday's game
Is charged to fumbling by Nebraska's
back field, but tho back field were not
wholly to blame. In fact they played
very good ball and showed good team
work for players who wore new to
each other and for the limited amount
of time they have had to practice. The
cause must be sought elsewhere, and
It can be found In tho weakness of Ne
braska's line and ends. Time and
again South Dakota linesmen broke
through and to thlB fact Is due much
of the Bhaky playing by Nebraska's
South Dakota had all tho best of
tho argument In punting and running
back punts. Thackaberry for South
Dakota prbved himself ono of the best
ground gainers over seen on a No-
braska field. Time and again be elud
ed Nebraska ends after catching a
punt and returned tho ball from fif
teen to twenty yards, while Franck
and Bentley for Nebraska wore usu
ally downed in their tracks by South
Dakota's speedy ends.
Franck's Good Game.
Franck was Nebraska's best ground
gainer. His running was hard and
speedy. Several times ho got away
for long runs. One in tho second was
for thirty-five yards and but for a bit
of hard luck ho would havo secured a
touchdown. Again In the last half
minute of play he Bayed the game for
Nebraska by tackling Keeling, who
had recovered the ball on a punt and
who'had already reached. Nebraska's
, ton-yard line.
Seltzer's work was good, but not up
. to his usual brilliant standard. Both
ho and Bentley have not boon In con
dition for their best work. Bentley
deserves much credit for his plucky
work considering tho fact that for two
days he had been too ill to practice.
Harto and Temple at tackles also
proved good line plungers and were
strong defensive men.
For South Dakota Thackaberry and
P. Coffey starred. Coffey played a
brilliant defensive game and did some
fierce line plunging.
The Game In' Detail.
South Dakota won the toss and
chose to defend the east goal. Franck
kicked off to South Dakota's twenty
yard line. South Dakota returned ten
yards and then Thackaberry punted
to Franck on Nebraska's fifty-yard
line. Franck returned ten yards and
Beltzer punted. Thackaberry fumbled.

EX-CENTER SIDNEY COLLINS. ""
"Sid" Collins, the one man who more than any other might havo
turned Saturday's game with South Dakota Into a Nebraska victory, Is a
secqnd-year law student. He is 24 5 ears old, weighs 175 pounds, and was
last year accorded to be one of the strongest lipo men In the Missouri Val
ley. He is now probation officer of Lincoln, and attempts to arrange his
return to tho gridiron have so far been unsuccessful.
Beltzer nutde four yards. Nebraska
was hitting South Dakota's lino hard
when tho line gave way, causing an
other fumble, but Sturtznegger recov
ered tho ball. Beltzer made five yards
around right end. The ball was on
South Dakota's twenty-yard line when
Nebraska fumbled again. This time
It proved disastrous. Thackaberry
again kicked out of danger to Nebras
ka's fifty-yard lino. Nebraska tried an
onslde kick, but it was caught and re
turned to tho middle of the field.
South Dakota's Defense.
South Dakota began to assume the
defensive. Five yards were made
through Nebraska's line when Thack
aberry again punted to Nebraska's
twenty-five-yard line. An attempted
forward pass failed and Nebraska was
penalized fifteen yards. This put the
ball on Nebraska's ten-yard line. Belt
zer punted and the ball was returned
to Nebraska's twenty-yard lino, South
Dakota carried the ball five yards and
then wore penalized fifteen yards for
failure to make good on a forward
pass. Coffey made five yards through
"center. A fake punt netted South Da
kota fifteen yards and put tho ball on
Nebraska's ten-yard lino. Nebraska's
"stonewalV was vulnerable and by
successive plunges South Dakota car-"
rled the ball oyer for a touchdown

8ENIOR8 TO ELECT PRE8IDENT
AT 11:30 THIS MORNING.
SENIORS WILL MEET NEXT THURSDAY
Oberfelder and Cain Remain the Only
Candidates of Third Year Men
Freshmen Laws Elect
With tho onior class election at
11:30 this morning in Memorial Hall,
the first of tho class political scraps
will come to a close. R. E. Campbell
and Fred Hoffman are tho candidates
for the senior presidency and tho vot
ing is likely to bo-cloBO.
Tho senior election has been
marked by quiet but persistent cam
paigning. Thero has probably not
been a first semester senior election
for Boveral years sodovold of excite
ment. Fred Hoffman, tho first candi
date out, is an Acacia. Ho oxpocts to
receive the support of tho faction
which last spring elected Paul Yates
president of the class. He will prob-
ably get a good share of tho law vote
and of tho medics, with a minority of
R. E, Campbell Is an engineer and
he will probably pull a majority of tho
votes of that college. His affiliation
with Alpha Tau Omega is counted
upon to give him tho big end of the
fratornlty and sorority vote, although
Hoffman will not be without some sup
port In these quarters. The academic
college will be badly split between
tho two candidates, and both admit
that the total result will probably bo
All of this prophecy is, however,
likely to 'be upset by the candidacy of
M. E. Streeter, which was rumored
strongly last night. Streeter is an en
gineering student without fraternity or
other affiliations. Ho is however, a
very popular man and his candidacy
would without doubt materially
weaken the present support of both.
Hoffman and Campbell. 'If ho enters
the race this morning the whole situ
ation will be materially changed.
Juniors Thursday. -
The junior class' election wljl bo
.held Thursday at 11?30 In Memorial
Hall, A. M, Oberfelder arid Harry L.
Cain are the candidates in this class.
Oberfelder was on the' ground at the
beginning of registration arid secured
a considerable lead by his early start.
Cain came out a week ago today and
bis friends havo been working hard
since that time.
Oberfelder is without fratornlty or
other aulllations. His home is at Sid
ney. He is one of tho two publiBhors
of the football bcoio pamphlets for
tho present season.
Cain is a Phi Delta Theta and an
engineering student. He will in all
likelihood draw a majority of tho frn
ternlty vote, although Oborfolder har
tho active support of a Btrong minor
ity of tho Greoks. The engineering
vote will largely go to Cain. Tho law
vote will bo split, with tho chances
favoring Oberfelder. In tho academic
college Oborfolder claims a big fol
lowing. The election will probably bo
won by a Btnall majority.
No 8ophs Out.
To dato thero is not a single candi
date for the presidency of tho sopho
more class. Tho Bophomoro election
is due to bo hold a week from today,
and tho field seems to bo still open to
In tho freshman class Coe Buchanan
of Omaha would liko to be president,
Buchanan has as yot no opponents,
but it is said that out-in-tho-state men
will select a candidate shortly to run
on an anti-Omaha platform. If such
a movo is made it will probably be an
nounced within a couple of days. Tho
feeling against Omaha, which was
high a few years ago, has largely died
out. Tho action of ono class last year,
however, in throwing four or five of
fices to Omaha mon, aroused some
comment and may be made the basis
of anothor antl campaign.
Tho freshmen laws annonuce an
election In U309 at 11 a. m. Friday for
tho election of officers. At present

UNIFORMS CAUSE THE
LL-FEELING BETWEEN 8TUDENT8
AND CITY FIRM.
SUIT HOUSE UNDERSOLD STUDENTS
Consequently Pershlngs Sought to
Have Farquhar Ousted from thb
CampuB, Which Couldn't
Considerable Ill-fooling has boon rlfo
during tho past several days among
members of tho Pershing RifloB and a
downtown clothing house over tho sale
of tho uniforms to the cadet battalion
this year. The Pershlngs feel that
tho action of the city house in estab
lishing an agenpy for the salo of tho
uniforms Infringed upon tho organiza
tion's vested rights, and thoy haven't
liked It a bit.
The selling of uniforms to the stu
dent body has always boon of consider
able importance to both tho dealer soil
ing the uniforms and tho studonts buy
ing them. Tho uniforms chango from
time to timo, many wear out, and
many of tho students leaving the bat
talion wish to keep their uniforms as
a Bouvonir of many hours' hnrd walk
ing. Hence tho numbor of second-hand
BUlts that can be obtained at tho bo
ginning of each school year is lim
ited. Consequently a largo numbor of
new uniforms are sold each yeaf.
This year trouble was encountered
by both the students and those sell
ing the uniforms as to Just who tho
student should buy his uniform of, and
as to which uniform was the standard
For tho past few years tho Per
shing Rifles have been taking tho or
ders for the majority of tho students'
uniforms. They claim' to have dono
this, not as' a money making enterprise
for tho members of the Pershing
Riflos, but for tho benefit of tho stu
dent body. Thoy also claim to uso
whatever profits come to them from
the salo of uniforms for the purchas
ing of colors and the like for tho bat
talion. This year the Pershing Rifles
started out as usual to sell the uni
forms to tho students. However they
-wore not alono in the field. Several
of tho business Aims of the city wore
also bidding for the students' orders,
'and the Farquhar Clothing company
also established a desk in the Armory,
whore students could have their meas
ures taken for uniforms. Farquhar
was selling the uniforms to the student
body for $13.50, whilo the Pershing
Rifles were selling them at $14.60, or
for one dollar more than Farquhar.
Many of tho students todd (advantage
of the difference in price to order
their uniforms of Farquhar.
As soon as the Pershing Rifles heard
of this they sent a representative to
find out if the admitting of tho Far
quhar Clothing company to competi
tion with them on tho campus was not
contrary to the regulations. The au
thorities, however, hejd that Jn tho
first place a student has a right to i
buy where ho pleases, and in the sec
ond place that the Pershing Rifles
when belling, 'Uniforms are. , acting
merely in the capacity of a clothing
company and as such can only be
treated the same as the other compet
ing clothiers. Tho fact that they
claim to be selling the uniforms for
a semi-benevolent purpose gives them
no more monopoly than the fact that
the Y. M. C. A. is a benevolent Insti
tution ,,should give it a right to sell
all' tho books for the university and ,
turn the. tfroflts over for benevolent
purposes. This Was the opinion ex
