8tlff Fight from Aggies All the Way
Through Nebraska Weak In Line
The Score was Thirty
to Six.
NcbraBka defeated the Kansas Ag
gies Saturday in the second gamo of
the season by a scoro of 30 to 6. Al
though the score seems somowhat one
sided, It was far from it. The Aggies
fought every Inch of the way and gave
up only after the whistle was blown.
The Cornhusker machine, with tho ex
ception of the center trio, worked nice
ly, and probably tho weakness here was
caused by the shifting of Meyer to
tackle in the place of Pearson, who is
on the hospital list.
Ab for the number of yards gained,
Nebraska advanced the ball 407 yards,
as against the Aggies' 63. The Corn
huskers were forced to kick only five
times, while tho Kansas boys were
forced to punt to safety almost every
time they obtained possession of the
Industrials Play Good Ball.
Capt. Ernlo Frank and Purdy played
brilliant ball and carried tho ball
through the line for consistent gains
time after time.' Halligan as fullback
made two of the four touchdowns and
proved IiIb ability as a line plunger
when he went through for gains with
apparent ease. Potter ran tho team
in great style, and in addition made a
beautiful drop kick from the 40-yard
line. Mastin, the husky end, shared
in the individual honors with the back
field men. His tackling was of a high
class variety Ho broke up interfer
ence time after time, and Beveral times
got the runner with the ball by n one
hand tackle Howard, at the other
end, did good work, and when called
upon punted the ball into Bafe terri
tory His punts, although not an nu
merous as those of the Kansas full
back, were longer and higher, allow
ing the ends to get down under them.
Weak on Forward Pass.
Nebraska's showing with the for
ward pass was anything but favorable.
Out of five attempts but one was suc
cessful The otherB wore either wild
passes or were fumbled by the re
ceiver. On tho other hand, the Aggies
made but two attempts and were suc
cessful in both. Their pasBeB netted
them, over thirty yardB and a touch
down. The Manhattan ends were good and
very few yards were made around
them. Prathor, as fullback, and Sldorf
sky, halfback, were the shining lights
of the agricultural team and made
good gains through the center of the

of tho team which has been quite no
ticeable ever since the beginning of
