Up In Improved Line In
Defeating the FreBhman squad 20
to 0, tho CornUuskerB demonstrated
.In tho mld-wook practice game that
thoy could play a Btrong defensive
game and sun scoTelf pushedto.
Coach Stlohm had the ball punted
often to tho Freshmon so that thq
Varsity would got tho practico in de
fensive gamo work. Tho speedy Ne
braska regulars fought stubbornly to
keep tho younger team from making
its yards. However tho freshman
team was in working ordor, and show
ed that under tho tutelage of Rath
bono it could often gain its'yardfl,
oven if tho ball could not bo pushod
acrosB for a touchdown.
Varsity Squad on Offense. .
On tho few occasions when tho
CornhuBkers took tho ball and sot out
to mako a touchdown, tho yards sim
ply flow under the feet of tho speedy
backfleld as it plowed through tho big
wagon opening in tho Freshman linos
made by tho husky linemen of tho
regulars. Owen and Ernost Frank
are proving tho best and most consist
ent ground gainers, Owon retaining
all of his old tlmo ability that mado
him tho greatest half In tho Valley
last year, and Ernie fast following
in hlB brother's footsteps.
Shonka on the Job.
Big Captain Shonka and his team
mate, Harmon, worked somo good fako
plays for yards, tho crashing forco of
tho hugo lineman oponing groat spaces
in tho Freshman lino for tho others
to follow through in tho rear of tho
In tho fullback position Purdy and
Gibson aro dividing tho honorB equal
ly, Purdy being tho man for the heavy
lino plunges and tho carrying tho ball
and making Interference around tho
end, whllo Gibson makeB up in IiIb
.kicking ability and his work on open
plays. Russell and Racely, tho other
halves, aro right on tho Job -ovory
minute that they aro In tho game, tho
speed of Racely delighting tho team
and the rooters as ho races -down tho
Center Position Stronger.
In tho center position, which hail
-b.oonlhj worry of Coach Stlohm for
somo time, Elliot appears to be tho
man to mako good. Undor the eyes
of Tato Matters, Sid Collins, and tho
former all-w'estorn center, Jumbo
Stiehm, tho center has becomo a man,
who can play tho gamo in all its pos
sibilities. Hornborgor, whilo keeping
in trim by daily practico, will prob
ably not got into tho game again un
til his grandmother, who is sick, re
gains her strength.
Pearson Is filling one guard and do
ing' well, aiul Anderson will probably,
fill tho other place Saturday, although
Stiehm may play sovoral of tho sub
stitutes. Lofgron and Chauner hold
tholr onds with tho speedy lad Mulli
gan as sub. Swanson and Froitag
will mako up tho other substitutes
for tho Missouri gamo linemen and
Elwell may got in a for a few mo
ments in tho backfleld.
Warner and Pottor will bo on tho
Job to play tho quartor positions, both
men playing -the rolo of genoral of
tho olovon In great stylo.
Tho team certainly looks flno for
the Missouri gamo, every man in good
condition and with team work down
to almost a habit, besides being a
science Coach Stlohm promises somo
Interesting rovolatlons In trick opon
plays for tho benefit of tho MIsbou
rlans, and will uso somo of his spoody
mon to got away with tho plays.
