KNOX TEAM ARRIVED LAST NIGHT

The second football game of the sea
son will be played this afternoon at
2:30 at Antelope Park, and Knox Is
to be the victim. The Nebraska squad
has put in a strenuous week of prac
tice and are in far better condition
than they were when they met South
Dakota last Saturday. It la the un
animous opinion among both coaches
and players that a big score against
Knox this afternoon Is the only way
to atone for last Saturday's game, and
put Nebraska in the running that will
give them a chance against Minneso
ta at Omaha on the 16th.
Last Saturday's game Bhowed that
the men were not in condition. They
had only had a week's practice and
many of them were new to the game.
There was no team work, and the men
were slow and unsteady. There was
a great tendency to fumble and to fall
down in critical places. Practically
all of this has been overcome in the
last week's practice. Now men have
come out and the team has been
Frank and Beltzer have been doing
some phenomenal work in carrying
the ball. In these two men Cole has
as speedy a pair of backs as can be
found In the west. Both of those men
will be watched with interest In to
morrow's game. Rathbone, too, has
been developing into a hard plunger.
Whllo not very heavy Harvey hits the
line hard. He has been working over
time the laBt week developing his
speed. Bently will ofllclate at quarter
in today's game with Hascall'as sub
stitute. Thus far Talt has proved him
self the steadiest man Cole has for
this responsible position.
The lino which gave so much trouble
last Saturday will present a much
stronger front and will not be likely
to give way to the opponents attack
so easily. Perrln sustained a broken
collar bono In Thursday's practice and
so will be out of the game. His place
Will probably be taken by Shonka,
who will be switched from guard to
Wenstrand and JSlllott. who has at
JaBt succeeded In Bfltting his credits
straightened out, will take care of the
guard posltlonawlth "VVolcott and
Sturmer aai subsututes. Temple and
Harte, the old reliables, will hold
down the tackle positions and It goes
without saying that this pair will eat
lip everything that comes their way.
This will givo Nebraska a line averag
ing better than a hundred and ninety
ppunds which ought to be able to re
pel the attack of any machine.
The end positions will bo taken care
of by Johnson, Chaunor and Magor.
Johnson will play hlst old position at
lejt, while Magor and Chauner will al
ternate at right Lofgren Js still laid
up with his arms and so will hardly be
able to break into tod ay 'b game.

EVENTS OF THE WEEK
Cole may save some of these and not
reveal his strength before the Min
Knox Comes Strong.
Coach Towne arrived in Lincoln
last evening .In charge of his team
from Knox college. They were a
rather tired, but optimistic bunch after
their long ride from Qalesburg, Illin
ois, and after a short stroll around
the city In charge of the coach, they
retired early in order to be in the best
of shape for today's game.
There are fifteen men in the squad,
all of them in good condition, .he
team is not quite bo heavy as the Da
kota team. Their average weight is
about 157 pounds, while that of tho
Dakota eleven was 162. They will be
considerably lighter than Nebraska.
The team Coach Colo will send onto
the field tomorrow ought to. average
close to 170 pounds.
Knox has already played one game
this year and like Nebraska she pulled
out of the game with a tie score. The
contest was with the Bradley Polytech
nical School of Peoria. Coach Towne
hardly expects to win today's game
against a much heavier team, but he
says that he has a scrappy bunch
with him and is going to let Nebras
ka know that Bhe Is In a football
The hopes of everyone were raised
several notches last night by the news
that Hugo Blrkner had come back.
Some of the boys were so enthused
when they heard the good news that
they almost ran all the way out to
Coach Cole's house to bring him tho
BIrkner's arrival adds much to the
prospects of a winning team. He
was one of the strongest men In the
back field last season, playing right
half and took part' in every game. He
Is a hard line plunger and a very dif
ficult man to Injure. Scarcely, if ever,
did he take time out for Injuries and
generally played the whole game. He
will not be In tomorrow's game, but
Is In good condition and will be out
for practice next week so as to take
part In the Minnesota game.

will probably be as follows:
