SNOW BREAKS IN UPON
8TORM 8TOPPED PRACTICE OF
NEBRASKA SQUAD LAST WEEK.
(OLE IS BACK FROM DENVER GAME
Cornhusker Coach Gained Valuable
Hints on Work of Two Teams
Still on Nebraska
A severe storm of sleet and snow
broke up the Cornhusker practice last
week so that the team was compolled
to lie idle all of Saturday and most
of Filday. Coach Cole had planned
some good hard work for Saturday
especially, and the stormy weather
greatly Interfered with his plans.
The weather conditions this week
do not promise much of anything bet
ter, but Cole is not going to let this
stand In the way, and from now on
until Saturday every minute of time 1b
to be utilized in rounding the men Into
form for the two remaining games of
Practice in Snow.
That the Cornhuskers are possessed
of an undaunted spirit Is shown by
the fact that -yesterday they put in a
good stiff thTeo hours' practice in the
face of a driving Btorm of Bleet and
snow. Such conditions are not the
best for training, but under the cir
cumstances both coaches and players
determined to make the best of con
ditions and keep up their ginger.
Yesterday a bulletin was posted on
the door of the "gym" ordering all the
members of both regulars and scrubs
to report for practice. About thirty
players responded to the call and
went out to the state farm In the af
ternoon. The athletic flold Is In mis
erable condition, being frozen haTd.
The ground at the state farm, howe
over, Is turf and does not get bo hard.
For this reason most of this week's
scrimmage work will likely be held
out at the farm.
Back from Denver.
Ccach Colo returned from Denver
impressed with the fact that the Corn
Huskers have two hard contests on
their hands. After watching the two
teamls play he Is convinced that Ne
braska muBt be .at her best when she
meets Denver next Saturday, and the
team must also be able to stand that
contest and be In shape for the
Thanksgiving game with Haskell only
live days later. To so train the team
that It can do this 1b to bo Cole's aim
Both these teams are strong, but as
to how they will compare with Ne
braska is a question. Neither team
has played any of the teams on the
Nebraska schedule to date, and so
there Is no opportunity of drawing
comparisons In that way. Cole Is un
der the Impression that -either team
will compare favorably with the
Cornhuskers as to weight and both
aro well balanced. The Denver toain
especially looked rather husky. x
The contost l)otween Denver and
Haskell resulted in avlotory for tho
Indians by the score of 8 to 6., Tho,
two teams, however, wore about equal
In 'strength, Denver being slightly
heavier and the Indians a little more
The atmosphere, which has always
been a BOirrce of worry to tho lowland
teams when they go to tho moun
tains, did not seem to affect tho In
dians at all. They wore Just as fresh
as tho locals at tho close of the
gamo. Tho halves were short, how
ever, which of courBO was a help.
Omaha-Lincoln Game Today.
The Omaha-Lincoln gamo for tho

QUARTER BACK DENIES THE STORY
Bentley Says He Is Going to Leave
Lincoln After Thanksgiving, but
That Hurt Has Nothing
to Do With It.
Onco again Lincoln's afternoon
nowapaper has mado a mistake Tho
athletic odltor who has boon vainly
seoklng for Bovoral woolca past to
foist tho namo "Androwa Flold" upon
tho now Cornhuakor athletic ground
haa mado another break. TIiIb time
It Injures Nebraska and football gen
erally, and for that reason It la wor
thy of a denial.
Following 1b tho paragraph which
tho Btar athlotic ' faker appended bo
noath a plcturo of "Tolt" Bontloy In
the Sunday Ibbuo: .
"Quartor back Bontloy of tho Corn
huakor football team haB loft tho uni
versity on account of Injuries which
ho rocolvod in tho Minnesota gamo.
In a bad taoklo his back was badly1
wrenched, and caro for tho bruises
ob ho would, ho could not recover so
that ho could got into thjo gamo
again. Finally tho Injury bothor'od
him so much that ho could not study
and ho had to withdraw from school.
Ho oxpocts to roturn to tho Cornhus
kor Institution noxt fall, and if he ia
In sbapo ho will bo again in tho grid
Not Due to Hurts.
Whon quostlonod by tho Dally Ne
braskan yostorday, Quartor back Bent
loy aald: "There la nothing In tho
Btory. It Is true that I am going to
withdraw from tho school after
Thanksgiving, but tho Minnesota In-
Jury haa nothing to do with it. That.
hurt ia practically woll, and so far as
it la concerned, I am in as good shape
to continuo in school aa I ever was.
Tho published story is without any
foundation and I will bo glad to see
you deny it"
Tho publiahed story in which Bont
loy is withdrawn irom school by tho
prolific dopeBtor becauso of his foot
ball injuries caused considerable
comment among university studonta
yoatorday. Those who know tho cir
cumstances wore not slow to give
tholr opinion of tho fako.
"It is mighty poor," said one. "Tho
opposition to football is big enough
anyway without having fako stories
to help tho antls along. This year
there havo perhaps not boen as many
big teams and the papers havo fea
tured them prominently. Sometimes
injuries of a fatal naturo as in. some
years -past. But thoy have boen in .
I think thqt tho reports havo been
exaggerated , Just as has. this ono.
Not Only Time.
"Hero is an example of tho way in
which such a fako may be started.
Tho troublo is that most people tako .
it for tho gospel truth and then favor
tho stopping of tho gamo because of
its dangers. Such fakes as that help
no ono and injure the gamo a whole
lot. Nor is it tho first time that this
sourco has been responsible for such
things. There h has been, evident in
that paper all this season a disposi
tion to put tho Nebraska toam in
the hole if it wore possible. We do
not ask for favors, but we do want
fairness. Such a Btory -as that about
Bentley Ms not fair."
