JOHNNY WON'T MIND
IF HE GETS BEATEN
BENDER RATHER EXPECTS HI8
INDIAN8 TO L08E.
BUT HE WOULDN'T MIND WINNING
Ex-Nebraska Star Writes of His Ideas
of Turkey Day Game and
Also Tells of His
' Feellrig. -
If Johnny lendor'8 words can be
'taken In their literal sense! tho Corn
huskers will havo no trouble In taking
thn Hinsknll Indians Into camir on
turkey day. In a letter to the Dally
Nebraskan. Bender writes that ho will
bo satisfied If his team holds tho
Cornhuskers to threo touchdowns, but
if Nebraska should beat him by four
touchdowns ho would bo disappoint
ed. Then ho addB, and ono can Im
agine his sly smllo as he writes,
"8hould wo -win I will bo 'dee light
Of courso Bender would havo to bo
rather optimistic over tho CornhuBk
ers, but any ono acquainted with tho
ox-ttebraska hero can reallzo that
Johnny Bender Ib not coming to No
braska a week from tomorrow with
tho intention of getting boaton by
oven one touchdown.
It looks like tho same old story, as
old as the game Itself. Tho habit of
snndlne out bear stories has boen
practiced by many teams In tho past,
and Bender seems to havo adopted
tho samo practlco in JuBt a llttlo dlf
Bender' Pleased Over Denver Qame.
HIb letter scorns rather odd, .top,
coming Just after a well earned vic
tory over a ihoavler loam undor ad
vorso conditions. In regard to tho
Denver game Bonder said "his victory
was quite a "pleasant surprise, 'Inas
much as ho had a much lighter toam,
and .had to contend with the rare at
mosphere. V ,
Bender rather lots, tho cat,qutJI!
tho bag when' he" adds, "But If Sro
havo a llttlo luck, a dry fleldf and
good decisions from tho ofllclals wo
will make tho gamo Interesting to
tho BDOctators at least." Further on
ho Bays, "Wo are coming with tho in
tention of, putting up a hard fought
gamo, and although wo realize that
wo are outweighed fifteen pounds to
tho man, and although I have a
young, light, green team, wo will do
out boat." .'.
The Cornhuskers, of courso, don't
intend to bo drawn off their guard by
any such news from Haskell. A team
that Is capable of putting up such a
gamo as tho Indians did last Satur
day are no moan foo. Colo saw thom
In action in tho Donvor gamo and ho
can well Judgo of thoir merits. If
Johnny Bender thinks tho Cornhusk-
ors are not onto him ho may bo a
little surprlsod When ho comes again
to Lincoln Thanksgiving day
Haskell Has Good Back Field.
The Haskell team may bo light, but
what thoy lack in weight thoy will
makoiup in speed and cunning. Tho
team will averago about 162 pounds,
about nlno pounds less than tho.
Corrihuskers, and not fifteen as stated
by Bonder. Tho greatest difference In
weight between tho two teams Is In
tho line. Tho Indian back field aver
ages 16T3 pounds, practically tho same
as tho Cornhuskers.
Bonder himself acknowledges that
his team aro expert In tho open stylo
gamo, and ho declares that in Cap
tain Roberta ho has ono of ,tho best
punters in the business.
The Cornhuskers afo iaking davan
tago of their time this vteek and are
putting In .some good hard practlco
undor adve'rse circumstances. A llt
tlo trouble has been experienced in
getting ouno or two of the regulars
out for work. Even though a man
has won his "N" or thinks ho is
capablo of putting up a good fight
without It, such absencd fr6ra practice
ought not to be tolerated.- It Ib hurt
ful to the spirit of the whole team,
and certainly does not help tho other
members any. The new system of
granting 'N's" recently considered by
tho athletic board would put a stop,
to this kind of practlco at loast.
All of the men on the team are in
good condition for tho gamo with
Denver Saturday, with the exception
of Wolcott, who has been laid up for
Boveral days with a mild case of ton
sllltls. It Is thought he will be In
shape again by Thursday so that by
tho time the .team starts on their
western trip they ought all to bo in
tho best of condition.

LINCOLN DEFEAT8 OMAHA.
Local High 8ohool Team Barely Gets
Away With a Victory In
Ono of tho most oxcltlng football
games of tho season was held yester
day afternoon at Antolopo park be
tween Lincoln and Omaha high
schools. The gamo was hard fought
from tho beglnulng to tho flnlBh, and
not until tlmo was called In tho sec
ond half was tho gamo fully decided.
With a score of 6 to G tho game closed
with Lincoln a victor by ono' point-
Although tho Omaha mon out
welghod tho Lincoln team by a fpw
pounds this advantage was overcome
by tho speed of tho local team and
their knowledge of tho open game.
Tho field was In deplorable condi
tion for a gamo 'and with great diffi
culty tho members of both teams were
able to retain thoir hold on tho Icy
Tho Omaha team mado lis touch
down In the first half and missed on
tho kick out. In tho second half Mann
wont in for Lincoln as right half, and
his presence seemed to increase tho
energy gf tho Lincoln toam. After
blocking tho punt Mann secured 'the
ball on a-fumblo and ran through a
broken field for a touchdown. By- be
ing able to kick goal the, Lincoln team
won out by the narrow margin off one
point. ' 1 1 '

ATHLETIC FIELD 8HOW8 HOLES.
A new system of awarding "N's" to
Nebraska athletics will bo introduced
as a result of the presont attitude of
tho athletic board. No action has yot
been takon on tho matter savo that'
tho administration committco has
boenm directed to write to othor
schools to learn of tho mothods thoro
In ubo. Tho board members, howovor,
favor a chango, and ono of somo na
turo Is said to bo assured.
At presont "N's" aro given to all
athleteB who participate in a fixed
number or papUof certain contests. In
football participation In a full half of
certain games is mado a, requisite to
t,ho granting of an "N." This year no
games havo yet been named, although
it had generally been considered that
Minnesota, Iowa, and Kansas would
bo tho games favored. The board Is
not at all decided on this point, how
ovor, and evon if tho present system
is continued this year it la by no
means sure that tho three names men
tioned will bo tho "N" gamps. Ono of
them may bo dropped for Haskoll or
In Effect at Once.
If the now system can be arranged
In tlmo, it will be put In force at
once and tho 1909 players tvIU receive
their letters under dt. Oneauggestbd
plan la' that-tho coach "and .hla- assist
ant grant the letters, subject to tho
action of tho athlot'lc board. Whother
somo such idea will be followed or- not
is problematical. All that Is decided
Is that some chango should bo made,
the nature of it to be determined
after tho other colleges havo reported.
The fault found with tho present
system is that some men win "N's"
for participation In a elnglo game,

New Grounds Develop Softness and
8lnk Away In Spots.
A nolo ton feet deep and half as
much across was ono of tho faults that
tho recent rain and snow dovoloped
in tho now athletic field. When tho
Lincoln high school athletes went out
to look over tho field yesterday thoy
found, a big slnk-holo on tho ten-yard
line, and thoy soon decided that they
didn't want to play their Omaha game
on Nebraska field. The contest was
transferred to Antolopo park.
Tho softness of tho field Ib a nat
ural result of its newness. The hole
presumably developed from an old
well. It will bo filed up and the field
put into good shapo for tho Haskell,
gamo a week from Thursday,
when their work throughout the sea
son docB not justify euch action.
Other men who play consistent ball
and work bard but who happen not
to get In a full half of a "big" game
lost ou,t through the technical nature
of the method. Theso faults must be
remedied, dn the opinion of the board,
if the proper spirit Is to be had
among "N" candidates.

have played threo years on the team
will bo granted gold footballs appro

tho board, and tbe trophies will be

receive them are Johnson, end; Harte,
