BY WALTER H. ECKER8ALL.
Chicago, , Nov. 3. Sinco tho adop
tion of tho now football rules in the
wintor of 1905-06, tho tendencies of
most coaches have beon to sacrifice
weight for speed. By-doing this the
football tutors thoueht they would
have more buccobb with tho new game,
which requires players of speed and
In tho old game tho team that could
bonst of an averago of 190 or 200
pounds was considered a champion
early In the season, while tho olevons
which have carried off tho honors In
the different BoctlonB of tho country
slnco tho abolition of tho niaBs play,
flying wodgo, and othor deadly forma
tions, have averaged in the neighbor
hood of 170 to 180 pounds.
Evory years tho big college toapis
throughout tho country have been
comiosed of lighter and shiftier play
ers, while beef, at one tlmo at a pre
mium, has boen discarded at moBt of
the colleges Tho big man, to make
good nowadays, must combine speed
with his wolght and ho must be ablo
to dodge In the open and pososs othor
qualifications which wore not essen
tial to the old stylo.
Far 8lghted Coaches Vindicated.
While most of tho coaches have
been leaning toward this Idea of giv
ing lighter menthe preference If they
posseBsed average football ability,
there havo been somo tutors who had
othor IdeaB and who have hold out for
big players to compose a team capable
of employing concentrated, heavy at
tacks. Theso football teachers have
realized that the majority of coaches
would sacrifice wolght for speed and
that at somo time a heavy team would
bo ablo to conquer a lighter and
Tho Chicago-Minneapolis gamo lost
Saturday at Minneapolis is a good ox-
ample of this. Tho Maroons were a
lighter and faster team, and It was
this agility and speed that was de
ponded on to conquer weight . and
brawn. Coach Williams of tho Go
phers always has favored big men for
his teams, and since the new rules
have been In force ho has clung to tho
same Ideas. He undoubtedly thought
that- a heavy, concentrated attack
against a weak line would net ten
yards in three downs.
In this gamo Minnesota invariably
made its required distance in tho thrte
chances by heuvy attacks of the puBh
and pull kind directed at the lino and
off the taokles. When this struggle
was ten mlnutos old It was seen Chi
cago's line waB vastly Inferior to Min
nesota's and tho Gophers were, able
to gain when and where thoy pleased.
Forwards Do Their Duty.
The half backs were Instructed to
lay back and wait for forward passes
und onslde kicks, and under no condl-
tions were they to run up and rem
forco tho lino. Tho Gophor forwards
woro depended on absolutely to hold
tkeir own against tho Maroon lino. If
this could bo dono tho Gopher coaches.
know Minnesota would win.
In this belief they wero right, aa tho
Gophor lino moro than hold its own
and played tho Chicago forwards off
thoir feet throughout the entire battle.
Not onco In tho wholo gamo did a
Minnesota back run up to help out tho
forwards, bo strongly did tho lattor
play on tho defense. Chicago did
mako some ground through the lino
and off the tackles, but tho small gains
made did not mako a bit of dlfforenco
with tho Gopher defense, which
played tho same way oil through tho
It may happen only occasionally that
a big, heavy team will take the meas
uro of a lighter aggregation which is
well versed In all styles of play, but
tho Chicago-Minnesota gamo showed
that a light team must have a strong
lino to compete successfully with a
team that depends largely on old stylo
football for its gains.

Lawrence, Kan., Nov. 2. Special to
Tho Dally Nobraskan.) Tho weather
has turned out unfavorably for tho
Jayhawkora. Sunday heavy showers
put tho McCook field In such a Btate
that It will be two days before tho
field Is again in good playing condition.
The coaches, however, are paying llttlo
attention to this sot-back and are put
ting tho team through hard practlco
dally as tho men heretofore havo been
slow In getting Into tho gamo as they
should. This week will bo a week of
new plays, heavy defensive work and
practlco at tackling at which tho Jay-
hawkers seem very weak.
Several of the best men wero kept
out of tho Washburn to Bavo thorn as
well as to give the now men a chance.
Carlson, center, and Bond, half, woro
not allowed to play, while JohnBon,
the star quarter, was taken out early
In tho game, leaving Holl, tho Bub
ouarter. to run tho team. All of these
men suffored slight injuries in tho
hard Manhattan struggle and muBt be
allowed to thoroughly recover before
tho Nebraska game, which means so
much to the Kansans. Tho team may
undergo a change In tho lino If cer
tain weaknesses of the men aro not

Four Hundred Men Take Part In Mak

The University Y. M. C. A. raised
$1,267.85 In, tho two days finance cam
paign which closed last evening.
Starting out with $900 as tho end de
sired tho eighty men on the dozen conit
mlttees passod that mark at midday
yoBterdoy and before evening the
amount pledged was much In excesH of
the goal originally aimed at
Noarly four hundred dollars of tho
total was pledged by members of tho
campaign committee. These men con
tributed an averago of nearly $5 each.
Tho average for tho entire subscrtp
ions was considerably over $3 and was
much In oxccbb of the expected
amount. There wero about 400 Indi
vidual subscriptions, these including
faculty and students.
New Plan Worked.
The new plan tried for the first time
at Nebraska worked successfully in
every particular. Subscription blanks
wore offered prospective subscribers,
lh signing which thoy pledged them
selves to pay a certain amount month
ly for the olght months remaining be
foro the close of school In June. Ten
conts a week was a typical subscrip
tion, this amounting to $3.40 for the
White buttons wero given to men
who had subscribed, to insure them
against further attack by members of
tho committee. These badges, by
their Increasing numbers, showed tho
progress being mado during tho can
vass. Tho big clock hung in tho win
dow of the association rooms in tho
Tomplo also registered the riBing sub
scription list, its hands' bolng ndvanced
at noon and ovenlng.
Secretary Der Klnderin was much
pleased last night vt tho success of the
campaign. "We did not expoct to get
over $1,000," ho said. "Now wo aro
assured of at least that amount, even
allowing for tho shrinkage which will
probably follow attempts to collect the
amounts pledged. While wo originally
stated $900 as tho mark aimed at, we
really hoped from tho ilrat to got to
tho $1,000 goal. Yet fow of us thought
It possible to pass that figure.
"The students have responded, re
markably well to tho solicitations of
the committeemen. Tho average sub
scription per student is high, as well
as tho number who subscrlped. With
such a response as this to show the
interest of tho students, and with this
amount to figure on in making up our
oxpense estimates, tlid work of tho as
sociation for tho coming year will bo
"Credit cannot be given to too great
an extent to the committees. The
men worked well and to their efforts
Is largely duo tho generous response.
Thoy alsb subscribed foeavlly them
selves and In .this way gave tho move
ment an Impetus it would not other
wise havo gainod."
In raising tho amount obtained dur
ing tho campaign, Nebraska beats the
record set by Kansas. At that school
$1,000 was raised in ft similar canvass,
and this mark was considered high.
The Nebraska association can now
claim tho best of it, however; and this

finished first in the order named In tlhs
croBB country tryouts yesterday. Tho
run was made from tho armory td tho
state fair grounds, around the track
tour times, and then back to tho ar
mory. The finish was very close, the
men finishing as antlo in bunches and
In extremely satisfactory time, tho
leader completing the five mile run in
2 mlnutos and 45 seconds.
Eighteen contestants entered tho
first of tho two tryouts. Although tho
number who were out for cross coun
try work this year Is the highest that
tho university has ever known, tho
number of men who run yesterday was
decreased ' because of the two tryouts
which are In vogue this year. A num
ber of tho men who dropped out alsa
had othor reasons for not running. The
men who participated in tho run yes
terday were as follows: E. J. Huber
man, E. P. Snydor, J. H. Koehler, R. E.
Smith, F. J. Clark, A. B. Amborson,

Trump, H. Wesae'l, 'Chapllne, M. Hlller.
A severe blow at the hopes of tho
cross country men was the 'announce
ment that tho captain of last year's
cross country team, H. O. Bauman, has
sprained his foot and was unablo to
participate In the tryouts last evening.
Thero is a strong possibility that ho
will be laid up for the tryouts w.hlch
will bo hold a week from last evening,
on November 10. This, coupled with
tho fact that the captaln-olpct of the
team for this year, G. A. Gablo, will
not bo in school until next week leaves
the outlook for a winning team this
year very gloomy.
Dr. Clapp hopes to have Bauman in
running form by the end of this weok,
and at least by the fore partoi.the
coming weok, and with -tho possible re
turn of Gablo tho outlook will improve.
For tho past four years tho CornhuBker
team has won tho western inter-colle&l-
ate dhamplonBhlp In oroas country, and
tho hopes up to this week were that
tho Scarlet and Cream team would
again bo victorious.
