ONLY TWO DAYS LEFT;
? PROSPECTS NOT SO ROSY
&6RNHUSKER8 SHOW UP POOR IN
SUBSTITUTE BACKS ARE NOT GOOD
Scrub Ends Distinguish Themselves
In Twenty Minutes' Play When
Varsity Makes Only One
With but two more days loft for
practice before the big contest, things
do not look' quite so rosy as Coach
Cole and his helpers might wiBh. The
work of the varsity so far this week
has not tieeh at all satisfactory. The1
men are still slow in getting off and
are not showing as much ginger hs
might be wished.
In yesterday8 scrimmage at Nebras
ka flold the best tho varsity could do
was to make one touchdown on tho
scrubs In about twenty minutes of
scrimmage. The scrub ends, especial
ly. distinguished themselves by break
ing through and spilling somo of tho
varsity plays' In their very inception. .
Of course the fact must be taken
Into account that not all the varsity
men were in tho scrimmage and what
wore there were fearful of receiving
8ubs 8how Up Poor.
One disappointing feature of this
weok's work 1b the failure of tho sub
stitute back field to come up to ex
pectations. Elliott at full, however,
put up the best game of the season
last night and hopes are entertained
that' If necessary ho may be able to
fill this position satisfactorily in tho
Kansas game. Sturtzonegger Is tho
only substitute back field man who Is
showing -any real knbwledge of the
game. He Is pretty light, but can be
counted on to give a good account of
himself when called on Saturday.
With the" exception of these two
num. NoDraskaTwill have to'gb into the
game Saturday with 'one set of backs.
Bentloy has about fully recovered from
his injuries received In the "Minnesota
game, but, Colo is not taking any
chances. Pranck is being regularly
drilled at quarter and Magor switched
from dnd to right half. This will leave
Chaunor-and. Johnson as ends jind In
no-way weaken 'the team In this re
"specC With such a switch Cole can
materially Increase his back field
Over an hour, was dovotod ,to scrim
mage work and in perfecting tho var
sity defense in yesterday's practice.
- Special attention was given to puriting,
getting down oh punts, and lino hold
ing' in punt formation. " In 'last Satu'r
day'a.cbntest -some of Nebraska's punts
camodarigorously near being blocked,
n-'lnpoinVtancoan attempted place
kickac't'ually was blocked. v '
fcoltjjer Temple nor Pranck appeared
in'yesterday's- scrimmage,- and Several
otbjSr 'men iw.ere given '"but a, short ses
sion Of Hard .work. Yesterday's scrim
mage waiti'elasthard ork' 'of tho
week; 'From now tjon until Saturday
the time, wjll be given to the perfect
ing o'f'the now plays on, which Cole is
depending so much for victory over
Kansas. Some of these were tried, out
against fthe scrubs yesterday with
moderate success. Of, course the scrubs
were onto the varsity signals anil knew
just how to break, up trio plays. With
kaneas-tho 'matter willybeidfffererit.
& Kansas Bearish. ,,. i
t KapB'a's'' is not going 'to come to, Lin
coln' neW Saturday oveYconfldont.' The
first team was sent In against Wash-
Mfe-MSSf :'. BEAT
burn last Saturday, with tho result
that several of tho Kansas stars are
now nursing bruises. Since the Minnesota-Chicago
game the Kansas
coaches have also began to sit up and
take notice. Thoy romomber that Ne
braska held Minnesota to a' 14 to 0
Bcoro at Omaha two woeks ago, end
that 20 to 6 score at, Minneapolis last
Saturday looks rather ominous.
Tho scrubs go to Sioux City Satur
day to tako on Mprningsldo. It Is even
money ,that there will bd a surprise
for in the Mornlngsldo camp before
the game is ended. So far the names
of tho players have not been published,
but will probably bo published "tomor"

Committee Takes Action In Cases
Where Excuses Were Not Good.
Secretary Engberg'of the committee
on student delinquency yesterday an
nounced the suspension of two stu
dents for failure to attend classes. The
men suspended not only did not at
tend the classes for which they were
registered, but they disregarded the re
quests of thp committee for excuses.

stances announced yesterday will bo
