In a desperate conflict Nebraska
and Iowa fbught to a tie on the new
athletic field Saturday.
Iowa showed a complete reversal of
form since She played Minnesota two
weeks ago an'd gave the Cerhhuskers
quite a'fiold goals
in the Initial hair, while at the same
time she held Nebraska scoreless, The
Cornhuskers took a brace in the sec
ond haft, however, and by .a magnifi
cent burst of speed carried the ball
straight down the field for a touch
down. The tie Bcore, however, is not a fair
criterion of the merits ofthe two
teams. In alindst 'every department of
the game the Cornhuskers otitplayed
their opponents. At no time could
Iowa do anything with Nebraska's line
and had.itmot been for, some unfortu
nate fiMbilng In;tho handing ofpunts
tne HawKeyes wouia 'nave oeen neiu
Went Through the Line.
On the other hand, Nebraska pierced
the Iowa Une for long gains almost at
will, the heavy Nebraska linesmen
opening great holes in their opponents'
defense. Nebraska's gains were prac
tically all made on straight football.
The Cornhuskers found Iowa's left
guard andaokle. exceptionally weak,
and repeatedly sent' tackles anfd backs
thrpugh for long galnB.
In the heglhnlng the Cornhuskers
weyo sadly handicapped by the loss of
Bentley. their regular Quarter. To this
fact inore than '.to anything else can
be attributed the two chances Iowa
Had to score. "Stub" Hascall, who has
had little experience in running the
teanV"Was-put in .atr.-quartort'4I;hi8'
waHascall's first appearance In big
company, and evidently the ordeal was
a little trying on his nerve, He .start
ed o.ut in good shape and was tunning
the; team well until in trying to re
cover an onside kick by Iow4 ho was
knqed by Hyland and caused to fumble
the. ball. This, seemed to unnerve Has
calj,, and over aftej- that he was un
fortunate handling punts, two
tumbles giving Hyland Tjdth chanceB
tor fteld goals.
In- other respects Hascall put up a
plucky game at quarter. He Was In
every play and made several galnB
fbr&ls team, one .of which was on a,
forward ,pas$ from JPeltzpr which he
pulled down in. ftte style,, ', .'
Beltzer's Good Work.

however, thought he would be .hurt

Great Work of the Line.
Too much credit cannot bo given
Nebraska's line in Saturday's contest.
Whenever there was necessity for it
puntod 'and Iowa returned, to tholr
forty-yard lino. Iowa gainod flvo
yards in two downs, and thon puntod
o Boltzor, who was down on tho No
jraska forty-yard Jino. On tho Corn
luskqrs! first down Franck carried tho
mil and made a sensational run, but

iraska was also pohalizod fit toon yards

Franck. Boltzor puntod and Iowa re
turned the ball to Nebraska's thirty-

Iowa got the Dall on Nebraska's fifteen

Critlolirn 'of Cole.
"Whoh Colp saw Hascall was fall
ing' thOBO critics sarcastically ques
tion, "why didn't ho tako him out and .
put Franck at quartor as bo did in
ho middle of the second half? Dldn,'t
tho team play great bail then, though?
Boo, they mado a touchdown and wore
outplaying Iowa after that change."
Of course Colo knew Franck could
run tho team at quartor and ho know
Magor, whon shifted. from end to half
could play this Jfittqr tppatfpn. r,But
ho did not know, vyhon tho gamo start
ed, that Franck, Boltzor and Rathbono
wcro going to bo able to: play., through
Dotn naives, ana, in Keeping jascau at
quartor lo was providing against a
contlhgoncy that might nave thrown

Tho lineup as ho had It In tho first
half was playing good enough ball to
ld,lowa oven and bad thero boon no
umblps other than Hasc'iUrs, Iebras
ca's shard would h'avb been moro than
naught at tho end of tho opener, Thero
was a fumblo on Jowl's ten-yard line
which Hascall did not make that un
doubtedly donlrid Nebraska a touch
down. No dufaltljiiite'lJieKi.;
At the oponing pjttke gamoha'd Colo,
allowod tho men ivhd finished it to

b'eon injured (it must ha rembmbored
Franck was;in poor shape) what .could
ho havo done? He had no substitutes
for, tho back-flold atjid. Nobraska.B
chancos of scoring, would hayo been
killed. - '
"King!' cole was figuring all this
out. when he allowed Hascall to stay
In tho gamo. and tho result of tho
gamo proved hlsJUdgmorit to bo good.
He know juBt about what tho back
field could do with Franck at quarter
and Magor at right .half. Ho know
thpy, would boablo to plp.w through
Iowa for, a touchdown, but that tho
driving attack would wear thorn out.
