Nebraska's co-ed rooters aro not

also attracting considerable attention
at other universities, as is shown by

"The Nobraskan football team de
feated tho Kearney Normalitos by a
score of 117 to 0. This remarkable

THREE HUNDRED. REGISTER.
In one of the prettiest exhibitions
of straight football put up by a Corn
husker toam for many years, the
strong Missouri University TlgorB
wero "defeated Saturday on Nebraska
Field by tho decisive scpre of 34-Q.
It must bo said for tho Tigers that
they brought up a strong, woll drilled,
well trained team, which contested
ovory foot, of tho way, but which was
simply overwhelmed and bcaton down
by Nebraska's wonderful offenso, and
was powerless to gain against tho re
juvenated dofenso put up by Stlehm's
mon. Nebraska's backileld was a ver
First Half 6-0.
It was slow In getting upder way,
and the first half ended with a Bcore
of 6-0, but during the intermission, the
forco draft was turned on, and there
after the powerful machine gained
speed and energy Avlth ovory play, till
at tho end of' the final period, It was
romping up and down the field like a
switch-engine In a yard full of empty
The day was marred, however, by
an accident to George Itacoly, the
Cornhuskers' speediest halfback, who
suffered an Injury to his log that will
probably keep him out of the next
fow games. Dr. Oliver Everett, toam
physician, expresses the belief that
Racely will be able to play against
Tho largo score was a surprise not
only to tho Show Mo peoplo; but even
to tho closest followers of Cornhusker
development. It Is estimated by good
authorltlos, that tho team played 100
per cent better football than it did a
weok ago at Minneapolis, and that Is
going sorao. On straight football Ne
braska gained 926 yards, and with
forward passes and recovered kicks
Included, 974, whllo the Tigers' total
gain waa but 77 yards, and never dur
ing tho entire game did they make
ton yards in throe, successive downs,
save onco whon tho Cornhuskers wore
penalized for off-side play. ' Nebras
ka's forward passing, however, was
far inferior to tho exhibition put up

Flag Rush. Proved to Be. an Exciting,
Event from Spectators' View- it
Tho Olympics wero hold Saturday
morning on Nebraska Field. Every
thing was In tho bost possiblo condi
tion for tho InterclasB strugglo, the
weather could not havo boon hotter,
tho enthusiasm of tho crowd and tho
Bplrlt with t which tho classes wont
into tho fray, was unsurpassed by oven
tho football crowd' In tho aftornoon.
The events in 'which individual
members of tho class participated
wero about ovonly divided. Konnody
of tho sophomores, easily won for
thorn tho honors in tho cross-country
run. In tho bpxlng ovonts Sam
Waugh, a freshman, wont into both
tho middlo and hoavywolght classes
and came out easily victorious in each
ono. Tho wrestling botwoon Ander
son and Stelk was probably tho most
Interesting and oxcltlng part of all
tho minor point getters.
Flag: Rush' Exciting. '
Tho Sophomores Itfst tho flag' rush
because thoy lackod tho numbers of
tho freshmen. Thoy wero outnum
bered threo to ono and could not with
stand tho onslaught of. tho now men.
Howovor, thoy put up a good battle
and gavo a good deal of Inconven
ience to tho freshmen when they
started for tho flag, which was. at the
top of a big polo sot upright In the
conter of tho 'athletic field.
A favorite, method of tho invaders
was to grap ono sophomoro between
two freshlcs and gently plant him flat
on tho ground. Then the problem was
to keep him there, a rather difficult
matter as the second year men had"
had moro experience in tho gentlo art
of rough-houso. This procedure was
kept up until tho flag was hauled
After the battle tho field was found
to bo strewn with caps, hats, shirt
sleeves, and sundry pieces of wearing
apparel. The great question alter the
war was "Whore aro my shoes?'' Sev
eral members of both classes losing
one or both shoes.
Ono student has already beon sus
pended from the University, and four
moro aro" liable to bo, for failure to
respond to. Prof. C. C. Enberg's invi
tations to call on tho delinquency
committee. Another student has been
advised to quit school on account of
low scholastic standing, and other
students are In peril of receiving sim
ilar advice, if not definite instructions
to that effect, from the secretary of
the delinquency committee; Inatten
tion to delinquency notices, and low
standing in classes will boob be dealt
With summarily, according to Prof.
of classes may result.
