"Thoy aro off!"
Practlco is over, tho flnlsbing
touches have boon put on and both
teams are on their mottlo, ready for
tho big contest
The' last practice boforo tho game
was held at the stato farm yester
day. Tho team was put through a
good two hours' work, consisting of
signal practice, punting, kicking off
and returning tho ball. Tho extreme
ly hot weather for this time of year
made thd practice very oxbausting.
Much foar is entertained that it such
weathor should contlnuo tho gamo

today's gamo aro to bo tho limit, thir-ty-flvo
mlnutcB each. With Buch
weathor provailing many substitutes
will likoly havo to bo used by both
squads before tho game is finished.
Such a contingency would necossltato
tho ubo by Nebraska of many of hor
sub back field men. It is likely then
that most of tho men who havo boon
working out in tho back field will be
used in this afternoon's game.
Every day tho enthusiasm among
tho Cornhuskor supporters increases.

Yesterday pennants, in tho Cornhusk
or colors, crimson and cream, and
bearing thp motto, "Wo must boat
Kansas," wore distributed among tho
students and citizens of thq town.
Theso pennants afo designed to bo
worn on tho lapel or can bo pinned
to tho waist.
Football enthusiasts could bo seen
gathered In groups about tho campus
discussing tho Cornhuskors' chances
and devising means to combat tho tor
rlblo Jayhawk yoll. Never in years
has so much intorost and enthusiasm
been" manifested on tho evo of a big
haUlo."" It is safe to Bay that if Ne
braska dooB not win today's contest,
and with it tho championship of the
Missouri Valley, tho fault .cannot bo
attributed to lack of loyal support on
(ho part of tho student body.

Burlington this morning at 7:307 Tho
team was accompaniod by tho varsity
band and ovor two hundred Jayhawk
ers, who proceeded immediately to
make their prosonco known. From tho
timo of tho arrival of tho special tho
Kansas colors became qulto conspicu
ous on tho atreots and in other places
about tho city.
Tho KanBans wero a hopeful bunch
and wero confident of victory. Late
last night odds of twp to ono wore
being offorod that tho Jayhawkers
would tako tho Conhuskors' mqasuro,
but this monoy was all gobbled up al
most as soon as it was offorod.
Various estimates as to the attend
ance at this afternoon's gamo aro bo
ing made. If tho advanco sale of re
served seats can bo taken as any in
dication, thoro will bo at least four
thousand spectators and tho proba
bilities aro that tho attendance will
bo mucli largor.
Game Begins at Two-thirty.
This afternoon's game begins a lit
tle earlier than usual. For various
reasons tho management of the two
teams havo decided to begin the game
promptly at two-thirty. Everyone
should1 tako special noto of this fact
and bo on hand early, as tho gamo
must be called at that time.
Tho Nebraska team will probably
lino up as follows:
Chaunor, right end.
Temple, right tackle.
Ewlng, right guard.
Wolcott, left guard.
"Harto, loft tackle.
Johnson, left end.
-Frank, Bontley, quarter back.
Frank, Magor, right half.
'Boltzer (capt). left half.

Nothing definite has been given out
as to Kansas, but tho following is a

Caldwell, left guard.

If Amnions of last year's Tyros can

Today's gamo with Kansas is tho
sixteenth gridiron contest whloh
Cornhuskors and Jayhawkors havo
played in tho past olghtoen yoars.
Curiously enough, tho victories of each
state university almost balance thoso

Nebraska has scalped tho Lawronco

Nebraska and Kansas rivalry has
been a thing proverbial in the history- "
of western athletics for a scdro oC -years.
In all branches of athletics tho '
two schools havo at ono timo or an-
other clashed, although at tho present
timo thoir rivalry Is not maintained In T
all kinds of sport. At all tlmos Kan- -sas
and Nebraska havo regarded each' '
other as one of tho greatest rivals r
which each had to contend with. At'
tlmos tho anti-Missouri fovor at Law-
renco or tho Minnesota, antagonism at '
Llncojn. has obscured for a Boason tho
Kansas-Nebraska: rivalry, but It "has
only been for a short timo. Kansas'
and Nebraska havo throughout re-
malned intense Tlvul4, and today's '
strugglo will but see a revival of tho
old spirit. '
