Now Rules Adopted for Governing
"N" Selections In Future
Tho university 'athletic board mot
yesterday morning to consider tho
awarding of "N'b" for tho football sea
son of 1909. Fourteen men Wore con
sidered as having worked faithfully
and ofllclontly enough to entitle them
to this, tho highest honor tho univer
sity athletic board can bestow. Tho
mon who were awarded "N'b" at yes
terday's meeting aro Beltzer, Shonka,
Ewlng, Wolcott, Harte, Templo, John
son, Chaunoi4, Magor, Frank, Bentloy,
Hascall, Rathbono, and Sturtzeneg
ger. These men, with one oxceptlon,
wore selected for their participation
in the Iowa, Minnesota, or Kansas
games, tho board deciding not to re
gard either the" Denver or Haskell
games as "N" games. Tho one excep
tion to tho general rulo wbb Sturtze-
nogger, who was granted an "N" for
all-round faithful work tho last two
Elliott left Out.
As was predicted somo tlmo ago,
there has been quite a lively scrap
over three candidates, Hascnll, Sturt
zonegger and Elliott. Considerable
interest and much comment has de
veloped over tho action of tho board
In regard to these threo mon. Tho
other places were generally regarded
as certain, but neither Hascall nor
Sturtzonogger wero sure of tholr let
ters until the board took the ilnal ac
In both theso cases tho action of
tho board met with general favor. The
surprise of the announcement, how
ever, was tho refusal of tho board to
include Elliott among Uie others, al
though he was believed by many as
deserving as either Hascall or Sturt
zonogger. The latter sentlmont at
least seems to bo tho one generally
hold by tho student- boady. Elliott
has worked hard and faithfully for
tho success of tho 1909 eleven. It
wbb he who saved tho Denver game
for Nebraska by his brilliant work
during tho last fow minutes of play.
He playd both halves of tho Donvor
game, and a full half in t,ho Haskell
game, besides his work in tho Dakota,
Knox and Doano games. His work
throughout tho entire year has won
him a place in tho hearts of tho stu
dents and tho refusal of tho board to
grant him an "N" has excited consld
Letters wero also granted tho cross
county team and to Dean Mitchell for
his work In last year's gymnasium
