TWO GOOD GAMES TOMORROW
NEBRASKA V8. DOANE AND
COLN VS. OMAHA.
(OLE SAYS WE MUST BEAT DOANE
EVERYONE WHO CAN USE
VOICE IS INVITED.
Nebraskans Have a Few New Plays
Worked Out for the
"We must beat Doane," remarked
"King" Cole as he led tho Cornhusk
ors out to practlco last night. And
the Cornhuskers chorused, "We must
beat Doane." -
The Doane game vlll be played to
morrow Immediately following tho
game between tho Lincoln and Omaha
high school teamn. The first game
will be called at 2 o'clock, -or as soon
thereafter as the annual class scrap
Everyone who can make a noise
with his vocal organs is urged to at
tend the game and help make tho
rooting a little moro presentable. At
the Denver game tho rooting was the
best of the Benson, but there Is still
room for improvement. The now yell,
which was tried for the first time last
week makes a big addition to tho list.
While it bears a strong resemblance
to tho famous .Tayhawker "Rock
Chalk" yell, it is enough unlike it so
tho. two will not be confused when
the Cornhuskers visit Lawrence next
And This from Kansas.
'If the storios from Lawrence are all
to be believed, Coach Kennedy was
never up ngainat such a streak of luck
in his life. Tommy Johnson is given
. jcredit for a sprained, or broken, wrist.
For several days the coach has been
"shifting his men from one position,
' apparently unable to decide upon a
Some of this tho Cornhuskers be
lieve. But thoy think that when the
Nebraska-Kansas game is called next
week thQ Jayhawker8 will bo in ns
good condition as at any time during
the season. "
As far as Nebraska's condition is
concerned, no one is particularly wor
ried. Tho Cornhuskers are in good
shape and are improving all tho time,
despite announcements that the team
Is playing ragged ball. And the
chances are ten to ono that the Kan
Bans think the announcements are
"bear dope" anyway.
Easy Practice Today.
Tho ComhuskerB will not go
through any very strenuous work to-
"day. The practice will, probably be
nothings moro than a warming up run
Joach Cole has- several new forma
tions under his bat for tho especial
benefit of Kansas. Doano will not be
privileged .to Bee what tho Cornhusk
ers can do In the way of new tricks
unless thoy show that they are en
titled to Buch recognition. For, as the
coaoh determinedly remarked, "Wo
must botjt Doano."
The now plays have been worked
. out for the improvement of the Corn
, buskers' offensivo play. As tho team
demonstrated both in tho Minnesota
gam'o and the Dqnver game, its de
fensive work Is as good as could do
desired, but offense is still tho strong
point of Uj'q coach's instruction. The
additional plays are expected to
greatly ImproVo tho 'Nebraskana'
Girls' Section a Go.
Tho university girls' section of the
, grandstand had found favor among?
Athe co-eds. At the Denver game the
lection was filled. With an able cheer
leader, backed,. m by jin enthusiastic
section, the grandstand made nearly
as good a showing as the. bleachers.
While tomorrow's &une may not bo
ono of tho most Important pn tho
schedule, every student who enn do so
Is nBked to attend. Every loynl stu
dent realizes that hp sliould attend
a small game as well as a big one If
