Two Strong High 8chool Rivals Set
tle State Championship
at 2:30 on Nebraska '
thoir spood and in their insldo knowl
edge of the game. The team 1b flnoly
balanced and plays heady" football.
Then thqy will havo too additional
advantage of having one of the bqst
puntors In the business. Mann can
also bo rolled on to placo klok from
as far back as the forty-yard lino.
With a little moderation In tho
weather this afternoon thofo ought to
bp a largo crowd of rooters out to
cheer the Lincoln boys on to victory.
Omaha students in tho .university are
also planning to do a littlo rooting
themselves, and quite a number are
expected to accompany tllb team. from
While eoveral of tho big eastern and
western schools will bo ongagod in
contoata that will go a long, way in
deciding championship honors in both.
Boctlons, tho Cornhuskers will havo a
day off this afternoon. Tho time will
probably bo spent In watching the
Omaha-Lincoln game which takes
placo on Nebraska field this after
noon. Tho reason for the onforced rest
of tho Oornhuskors is not that Man
ager Eager did not schedule a game
for this dato for fear that tho team
would bo out of condition following
tho Kansas game, although this has
boon thought by many to be tho case.
Tho Missouri Valley conference ruloB
do not permit a team to play more
than eight gamos in a season. Since
Nebraska has already played six
games and has gamcB scheduled with
Donver and Haskell, it necessitates a
rest this afternoon.
Tho fiorco downpour yesterday af
ternoon interfered materially with
Coach Colo's plans. Preparations were
mado for the hardest scrlmmago of the
wook. Tho plan was to give tho var
sity about an hour's hard scrimmage
and then lot thorn rest up until Mon
day. With two hard games coming bo
closo togothor Colo will havo to pre
pare for both at once as thero will
not bo much time for scrimmage work
botweon noxt Saturday and Thanks
giving. Varsity Works in 8now.
Desplto tho fact that tho fiercest
storm of sleet and snow of the year
visited this section yestorday, Colo
took tho mon out and gave thom their
daily exorcise. Ho was loath to lot
thom Ho idlo until Monday. Tho
fact that tho mon wore forced out
undor such conditions means that
Colo is not going to lot anything bo
undone to'onablo him to win tho noxt
two contests. Both Denver and Has
koll oro Btrong and aro going to make
tho Cornhuskers go somo If they win
either game. Sp far this season Ne
braska has won two games, lost two
and tied two. If tho team can win
tho noxt two games they will finish
with a very creditable record and
Coach Colo can woll bo complimented
on the development of such a team
from tho matorial lib had to begin
with. Colo loft last night for Denver,
whoro ho will got some pointers to
use in drilling his men for noxt Sat
urday's gamo.
Lincoln-Omaha Game Today.
Tho center of the arena In football
circles in Nebraska today will bo oc
cupied by the Opaaha-Llncoln High
School contest Both these teams aro
strong, having played tho bost. high
school teams of tho state and neither
team having been defeated. Tho win
nor of this aftornoon's contest will
havo a clear titlo to tho state high
school championship.
In addition to both teams being
contenders for championship honors,
the two schools havo long been rivals
in all manners of athletic contests.
Last year Lincoln was defeated by
thoir rivals in Omaha and loBt tho
titlo, to tho state championship, by but
four points, a place kick by Omaha,
turning tho trick.
''This year Lincoln has a much.
stronger team, They will probably bo
cmtwojghpd by Omaha, but thpyjylH
8ome of University 8tudents Will
Meet Football Team at Dinner.
In ordor to show the Omaha football
team, which comes to Lincoln to
day to play Lincoln high school, the
sort of spirit prevailing at Nebraska,

Examinations Mado by Competent
Physicians With 8peclal Atten-
tlon to Heart, Lungs
and Eyes.
Anotihor radical change has been
suggested for the students of tho uni
versity. Tho suggestion now in con
sideration is that tho members of tho
student body who register in tho uni
versity submit to a medical examina
tion which is to bo conducted by a
committee of competent physicians,
these mon to examine tho health of
tho student with regard to Its general
tho Stato Toachors' Association, whicji
drow up tho roport in question, that
tho examination of tho ontoring stu
dent bo conducted at tho tlmo of his
matriculation in -tho , university,. It
is furthor suggostod by tho comiriittoo
that examinations bo takon Tfurtfior
along In tho Btudent'B courso In tho
university, whonovor tho oxamlnlng
physician should doom it nocoBsary.
Tho examinations would cover at loast
general health, heart troubles, lung
troubles and eye diseases.
Tho suggestions which tho members
of this committee put forth In their
report are not alono for this 'unlvor
sity, but thoy suggest a similar niod
ical examination for all of tho col
leges df tho stato, and outsldo of the
commonwealth If tho proposed plans
should bo accepted by the govorning
boards of tho colleges of any of tho
neighboring states.
