CORNHUSKER SQUAD IS
, . RESTINGAFTER WORK
VARSITY MEN TAKE IT EA8Y"FOR
THE SCRUBS KEEP ON PRACTICING
Coach Cole Devotes Some Time
Second Team Which Trimmed
Mornlngslde Last Saturday
at 8loux City.
The Cornhuskers are enjoying a
much needed rest this week after the
seven long weeks of hard training
since practice began. The season
started late this year and with a big
game on the schedule early In the
year tho men had to go into the work
with a rush. Every evening has seen
them faithfully at work striving to
get into condition and keep In condi
tion for the big games.
But this week will see a let-up in
the strenuous training life. The next
game is with Denver, and as that Is
two weeks off, Cole feels that he can
afford to give his men a little rest so
that they will not go stale. ,
Nebraska's Good Physical Condition.
The team has been carefully trained
this year, as Saturday's contest
proved. Not a man on tho team re
ceived anything in tho nature of a
serious Injury, and time was taken
out for Nebraska but three times. Not
a man was compelled to leave the
Held on account of injuries, while on
the other hand Kansas made three
There is something remarkable
about the way the Nebraska. team has
stood up to its standard this year.
With but one full set of men and prac
tically no substitutes the team has
been frequently placed In a precarious
position. The regulars havo had to
stand the brunt of Iho battle until
finally beaten down they have been
compelled to give way. This has been
the case in at least two big contests.
Had Cole tho same reliable substi
tutes that either tho Minnesota or
Kansas coaches have, the story in
both of those contests might have
been different. But all the season
through these eleven or twelve de
pendable men have gone on and done
the work of a score. They certainly
deserve credit for what they have done
and they have earned a rest.
Another remarkable fact 1b the ab
sence of any serious injuries In the
Cprnhusker ranks either in any of tho
big contests or In. scrimmage work.
Tales of serious accidents are heard
from other schools, but so far this
year, Nebraska has gone through with
a clean record. Much of tho credit for
this state of affairs la due to the care
ful training and coaching, tho train
era and coaches taking a personal In
terest in the welfare of every man.
Cole Training 8orubsf
Cole Is devoting most of his time
this week to the scrubs. Several of
these men are of varsity calibre, but
they ar .Ineligible. They will be
needed next year, however, to fill the
void left by the passing of at least
four of this year's regulars. Last year
Cole was unable to devote sufficient
time to the scrubs and the result was
that he had an extra amount of work
on his hands this year in developing
his raw, material.
That the scrubs are not a team to
be despised Is shown by the way they
walkod over Mornlngslde at Sioux City
Saturday. The final score was 0 to 0,
but this does not tell the tale. Throe
times the scrubs pushed the ball over
the MornlngBldo goal lino only to be.
called back and penalized. One ot
these penalties occurred after the ball
bad been pushed over from Morning

the scrubs were making from three
to ten yards at every buck.
Frank, Gibson, Wood, Potter and
Hornburger all played stellar ball Tor
tho Nebraskans, whlld the rest of the
team were also in evidence.
The BcrubB are not kicking so much
over tho loss of the game, however,
for they are not soreheads. What
they do complain about is tho treat
ment of the Mornlngslde management.
After promising to keep the team un
til they could return on Sunday
noon's train the Mornlngslde manager
went down to the hotel and paid the
bill to 'Saturday night,' leaving the Ne
braska boys to pay their own ex
penses over night and up till noon
