FOURTEEN GIVEN "N"S BY ATHLETIC BOARD NEBRASKA-MINNESOTA DEBATE00E TONIGHT ALL IN READINE83 FOR BIQ AN NUAL 8PEAKNg CONTE8T. V 4 DELAYED 8ELECTION OF LETTER MEN AT LA8T ANNOUNCED. WILL ELECT CAPTAIN ON MONDAY Now Rules Adopted for Governing "N" Selections In Future Years Effective in 1909. 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 years. , 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 tion yesterday. 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 orablo comment. Letters wero also granted tho cross county team and to Dean Mitchell for his work In last year's gymnasium "(fbntOBt.- "N" Rules Adopted by Board.
