INFORMAL GLASS SCRAP CAUSES
JOVIAL MIX-UP ON CAMPOS
Nobraska meets Missouri for tho
first tlmo sinco 1902 this afternoon,
tho two teams clashing on Nobraska
Field at tho call of tho reforoo's whis
tle at 3:30 o'clock.
Tho championship of tho Missouri
Valloy conforonco lies In tho fate of
tho strugglo betwoon tneso two teams,
for In spito of tho fact that Ames de
feated Missouri last Saturday, foot
ball critics of tho west boliovo that
Olympics enthusiasm broke forth a
day earlier than schedule, when tho
sophomores precipitated matters on
tho campus Friday morning by putting
their colors on University tower and
hanging a 1914 banner on a wire be
tween University and Memorial halls.
Freshmen pulled down tho soph
banner and a warm mixup ensued, in
which honors wore about even,- but
from which tho sophomores emerged
rather crippled by tho temporary sus
pension of four of their men C. F.
Andrews, Robert Davis, Philip Kline,
and L. A. Townsend
Soph Class Crippled.
Chancellor Avery's discipline of tho
1914 clasBmon as punishment for their
leadership in the fracas will only keep
them out of the Olympics, but that
will bo quite a sot-back to tho sopho
more prospects in tho free-for-all fight.
Even a member of tho faculty in
voluntarily became involved in a part
of tho mix-up, but tho matter has been
dropped, so far as ho is concerned,
until next week, when it will be
- Trouble Brewed Easily.
The erection of the flag by tho
sophomores on Friday morning was
the, signal for tho opening of hostili
ties between tho underclassmen. It
boro tho traditional skull and cross
bones, tho numerals 1914, while below
tho inscription "Down with tho Fresh1
men" was doped out in rainbow green.
Tho freshmen did not object to tho
inscription, but tho color put a littlo
red in their eyes.
Gathering, tho cohorts thoy descend
ed upon tho Bophomores and smote
them hig and thigh. But something
broko about then and sophomores
came from all directions to join tho
fray. Tho mix-up which then camo
off was, a classic in that line of athletics.

many scattered uatties.
The scrap broke up into a number
of minor battles, which botook them
selves to various parts of tho campus
and town. In midst of this turmoil,
Chancellor Avery, Rogistrar Rutledge,
and others of tho administrative force
interrupted tho fighting classmen. An
informal roll call was mado and this
roll has since been used to advantage
in locating tho guilty perpetrators.
Tho moment that "roll call" sounded
there was a general sprinting of- the
clans, but nevertheless a good list of
enthusiastic warriors was secured.
These men will be dealt with by tho
Chancellor early next week.

the Tigers, and tho CornhuskorB aro
tho two best teams in tho Valloy. Ne
braska, if sho can dofcat .Missouri,
should find Ames a much easier vic
tim. , Tigers Confident.
Missouri is pinning her hopes of tho
Valloy title on tho game today. If
tho Tigers can beat tho CornhUBkors
thoy will pray for Nebraska to beat
Amos and as Missouri only lost tho '
Ames game by 6-3 last Saturday, will
show comparative scores as Its claim
to tho champ honors.
Tho, game; will be close, closer than
many of tho Nobraska supporters bo
liovo, If the word from the Missouri
camp on tho strength of their heroes
is correct. Missouri is fast, plays a
strong defensive game and will rely
greatly on the punting strength of
Shuck and tho speedy ends to keep
tho ball towards Nebraska's goal lino.
Both Are Fast.
The CornhUBkors aro every bit as
fast as tho Tigers, in fact that back
fleld will bo a revelation to the visi
tors, and Nebraska's line plays" a
great defensive and offensive game
Coach Stiehm is silentvery silent,
as to what kind of a game he has in
structed his men to play, but Itwill
undoubtedly have a number of speedy
plays in its makeup. The defensive
work of the team is stronger than it
has been at any time this year, and
the offensive work retains all its early
season speed and dash and has added
