The Cornhuskers have practically
recovered from all evil effects of the
last two contests with Minnesota and
Iowa and are regaining their old form.
Saturday they line up against tne
Doano Tigers. While this will be con
sidered moro In the nature of a prac
tlco game, still the Interest In the
game will be fair. Doano has a good
team this year and expects to win the
state championship. Of- course this
does not include tho State University.
The scrubs will probably play moBt of
tho game Saturday.
Secret practice -was continued yes
terday at the now field. For this part
of tho work the advantages of the now
field with the high fence incluosuro Is

and much better results are antici
pated. 8crimmaging Again.

A Bolid gold football for each man
on tho team Is tho prize for which tho
CornhUBkor team may strlvo In tho
Kansas gamo. That is tho roward
which will possibly bo given to tho do
fenders of tho Scarlot and Cream
In case of their victory ovor tho Jay
hawkers. Tho proposition of awarding tho Ne
braska players gold trophies of tholr
victory over Kansas was brought up
by certain students yesterday, Tho
matter was laid beforo tho student
members of tho athletic board and a
canvass of tho board was at onco
taken. It was stated last evoning that
a majority of tho board wero commit
ted unofficially to tho award. In caso
theso men do not chango tholr minds
beforo tho board formally acts, tho
"N" men may be euro of their foot
balls. A meeting will bo held at 11
a. m. today to decide the question.
The footballs will bo made In tho
form of a watch cnarm. They will bo
solid gold and will bo appropriately
engraved with tho circumstances of
tho Kansas Victory. Only thoso mem
bers of tho team participating in tho
Kansas game will receive the tro
phies. Given Once Before.
Onco beforo In tho history of Ne
braska the gridiron heroes have boon
rewarded with gold footballs. That
was In 1002, when Nebraska turned
out her famous all-victorious team un
der Captain Westover. In that year
Nebraska trimmed Minnesota by a
score of 6 to 9 and Kansas lost 10 tq 0.
Other teams failed entirely to moot
tho defense of tho Cornhuskers, and
the season closed with Nebraska's goal
In appreciation of the record mado
In that year tho Nebraska students
gave the team members gold footballs.
At no time since that year has the
custom been revived, With Nebraska
defeating KansaB, however, the Corn
huskers may onco moro receivo tho
"We Must Beat Kansas."
"We Must Beat Kansas." That Is
tho slogan to, be printed on 5,000 but
tons which will be distributed on tho
campus early next week. Tho buttons
have beep ordered and tho shipment is
expected not later than Monday. They
will bo at onco scattered about among
students and alumni and 'the battle
cry which they carry will symbolize
the "Nebraska spirit" which is to
meet and conquer Kansas November 6.
The buttons will bo plain bits of
metal with the four words forming
tho motto of Nebraska printed in col
ors.' Every student in the university
and every alumni In the city, is ex-,
pected to appear next week wearing
tho sign of his loyalty to Nebraska.
Nebraska must beat Kansas and the
best way to insure that end.In the
opinion of the managers, is to make
victory certain by fostering the spirit
or aeierminaiion wmen auos no no-feat.
