NEBRASKA GAME IS UNLIKELY.
Michigan's Open Date Set for Missouri-Nebraska
Judging from advIceB received from
the University of Nebraska, Michigan
will not hook up In a contort with
tho Cornhuskors this coming fall. No
vember 2 Is tho date that has boon
talked of as bolng tho possible dato
for tho contest, and It is practically
tho only dato on which tho game
could bo played. But now it appears
that Nebraska has a game with Mis
souri on that dato. So it 1b evident
that there will bo no Michigan game
for them, and tho question now arises
as to whom will be Michigan's oppo
nents on that date. Michigan pally.
