THE DAILY NEBUASKAN
STIEHM'S EAGER PUPILS
PERSPIRE FROM HARD WORK
RcganllcBB or hut weather, the Ne
braska footbnll candidates wont
through a gruelling practice Thursday,
a hot scrimmage closing up the day's
work for tho Varsity squad. The
iplayors did not all show cold weather
snap In their work, hut went nt It In
good spirit In spite of the fact that
tho perspiration was streaming down
all their faces.
Ono good result of the day's hot
weather practlco was the taking off
of evory vestige of surplus flesh on all
of tho gridiron men. Seven and eight
poundB wore loBt by many of tho squad
and some lost oven moro.
At Farm Again.
Tho Scrimmage was hold on the
stato farm grounds, Coach Stlohm
saving tho new sod of the Nebraska
Field na much as possible. Rusticat
ing out in tho agricultural districts
has had no ill offecta on tho team,
however, as tho turf at tho fqjrm
grounds Is in nice shape.
Today tho boys will bo back on the
city campuB, and thorough workout
will bo held. Stichm Ib shifting his
line and backlleld much these days,
testing out tho powers of each Indi
vidual playor so that he will khow
hlB material well for tho hard practlco
coming In tho following weeks.

Warner Still In Lincoln.
The -prospect of. -aeelngluLJiiissing
Warner In moleskins again this yoar
aro as doubtful as a week ago. War
ner, In osplto of all argumonts of
friends In tho colleges, declares that
ho ought to stay in business this yoar
rather than attend school. Ho has
still somo tlmo to think over tho prob
lem, however, and while Jerry re
mains In Lincoln, where It Is so easy
to enroll, the football enthusiasts have
hope. Ills addition to tho squad
would certainly make tho nppearancos
of tho team look bright better even
than last yoar.
MIDWEEK MIX UPS TO BE
THE RULEJT NEBRASKA
Following the example of the' big
colleges of tho oast, Nebraska will
hold practlco ' games each midweek,
starting the first game next Thursday.
Tho Freshmen team will playthe Var

Coach Stlehm heartily approves of
the new rlnti and set Thursday as tho
best day for the practice gameB. He
will arrange one each week, either
between the Cornhuskers and the
Freshmen or tho Cornhuskers and the
Free Football Games.
Admission will be free to tho games.
but the cpntests will be run off just
as any regular game of the year. It
Is thought that somo of the boosters
will get together and plan a rooters'
party for thet oponlng gamo Saturday
and for tho first of the midweek
games. Tho Freshmen team is one
of which the class should bo proud and
will give the Cornhuskers a good race
for the honors In all of the games.
The tlmo of the contests has been
set for 4.30 o'clock both for the first
Saturday practice gamo aiid for the
first of the Thursday mixes.
We understand that there is Stlehm
behind the football practice this year.

Ole Metcalfe, captain of the last
year Cornhusker baseball team, "tho
team that never lost a game." Is lend
ing the glamour of his presence to the
football field these days. The only
reason ho Is not trying for quarter,
