made by the Cornhuskers in the two
weeks intervening between tho Dakota
and Minnesota games.
Will Be a Hard Battle.
Some criticB are of the opinion that
the Cprnhuskers are in for a trim
ming when they go against the Hawk
oyos this afternoon. Tho practice the
wholo week has been distressingly
ragged, it being difficult for tho var
sity to make a good showing against
tho freshmen. However, this may all

is up against a hard proposition this

Colo will bo pretty nearly up against

ter, but ho has not fully recovorod
from tho effects of last Saturday's
gamo and may not be able to romain
through tho entire contest. Besides ho
is needod at half back. Sturtznegger
may bo used at quarter, but ho will!
undoubtedly be called upon to take
either Franck's or Beltzer's place at
half before tho game is over. Tho
quarter back situation is unquestion
ably a serious one.
Nebraska must win today's gamo,
but how is she going to do It? There's
tho rub. The main hopo is in the
gamoness of tho Cornhuskor elovon.
The Nebraskans in the same physical
condition as a wook ago could easily
put the Iowans out of business. But
the Cornhuskers aro far from being in
that Bamo physical condition, while
tho IowanB presumably aro in perfect
condition. Tho two linos are on a par
as to weight, while Iowa has much
tho heavier back-field.
Iowa Men Late.
Tho Iowans were billed to arrive In
Lincoln last night at six .o'clock, but
owing to a broken rail east of Coun
cil Bluffs they wore dotal nod on tho
road and did not arrive until twelve
forty this morning. They have their
headquarters at tho Royal and will
take a long rest this morning so as to
be in shapo for the afternoon gamo.
Colo gavo his men a liard workout
yesterday. Much attention was given
to signal work and instruction on the
manner of breaking up tho Iowa plays.
No official lineup was announced for
this afternoon, but tho Cornhuskers
will probably lino up as follows:
