Some Interesting Information
"When the referee's whistle Mows at three-thirty this afternoon,
Nebraska and Michigan will clash for the second time in the history
of athletics at these two institutions and for the first time on Ne
The only other contest between the two teams occurred early in
the season of 1905 at Ann Arbor, and resulted in a Wolverine victory
31-0 although the lighter faster Cornhuskcrs, held the Yost hosts
scoreless for the entire first half and for a portion of the second.
Since that time a great many changes have taken place both in
the style of game played and in the personnel of the two teams.
Michigan was at that time a great university with but a few hundred
less students from which to draw her material than at present, while
Stichm is a graduate of Wisconsin Univorsity, hailing from tlio
time when Wisconsin was a big factor in Western football.
Sylvester V. Shonka, left tackle, is captain of the CornhuskerH,
and Conklin of the Wolverines.
The Craig who plays at halfback today is not Ralph, the famous
sprinter, but a younger brother.
The game will be played in four quarters of 15 minutes each with
an intermission of three minutes-between the first and second and
third and fourth periods, during which no one but a water boy may
be upon the field of play. Between the second and third periods
there is an intermission of 15 minutes, during which a snake dance
! will be held by the rooters and friends of both teams.

dreamed pi the five thousand who now overcrowd the campus.
So great also has been the change in the sort of men available
for the two teams that whereas in 1905 the Cornhuskors were out

of the fake figures which are always given out regarding the weights
of football men, is said to bo slightly in our favor.
Both teams arc trained to the niinuto and pointed for this game.
Both teams have gone through exceedingly trying schedules with
but ono defeat, Nebraska paving lost to Minnesota in an early gamc,
and Cornell having triumphed over the Wolverines on a fluke.
' 'Hurry-up' ' Yost, coach of the Wolverines, got his start in the
Missouri valley, having coached first here andlater at Kansas in" tlio
early'days of football in this section of the country.
' Ho is a .product of Lafayette, and although he was never much
of a football player, he is now generally regarded as .the greatest of
all "coaches under the rules of the American game of football.
Ewald 0. Stiehm. who last spring was appointe'd all-year coach
I and assistant professor of athletics at Nebraska, differs from Yost
in that he was a star while a player in college, and was piok'ed as
All-Western center at one time.

this year so manfully, and with such wisdom and foresight" that ho
bids fair to prove anotheV Yost in another year or two'.
