The long-expected olive-drab unl
form of the cadets have not yet ar
rived. The first-year men are eagerly
awaiting the day when they can ap
pear in all the glory of their gay regi

ans of the second year are dreading
the donning of tattered uniforms in the
crowded quarters of the locker room.
Lieutenant Bowman Is certain, how
ever, that the uniforms will be hero
early next week, If not sooner, as they
have been ordered for some time.
There are several appointments of
non-commissioned ofllcers to be made
In the various companies, but these
can not be determined without further
tryouts of the second year. Three
company quartermasters, or second
sergeants, have been selected from
among the third-year men. These are

Frank did good work, and It was In tho
final period after lie and I'urdy hud
been placed In the lineup were tho
Hiibstltutes able to score. The game
was sluggish all the way through and
fumbles were quite frequent. The only
feature of the game was the blockJnR
of a punt by Allan with Pearson pick
ing up the ball and raring 35 yards Tor
the final touchdown.
Nebraska tried ten forward passes
and completed six of them. Four of
the flips were made for good gains,
while the other two were completed
for no gains. Adrian used tho pass
five times and were able to complete ft
two (lines, once for a gain of 20 yards
and the other for 10 yards.
Howard outdistanced the Adrian
punter on the average of nearly four
yards to each punt. He punted three
times for 100 yards, while the Adrian
kicker boated the ball seven times for
204 yards, or an average of 29 yarda.
Nebraska punts were never returned'
for over a few yards, while the Adrian
punts were returned for good gains.
The Cornbuskers were penalized
seven times for a distance of 85 yards.
Most of these penalties were Inflicted

for offside play. The Adrian te&n
played a much safer game and wore
taken back 15 yards for holding.
