Columbia, Mo., Nov. 2, 1912. (Special Dispatch)
Coach E. 0. Stiehm's Cornhusker pupils succeeded in winning
from Brewer's Tigers this afternoon by a close margin, and only af
ter the hardest kind of a battle.
The Missouri team put up a stubborn and formidable front to
the attacks of the Nebraska machine, and succeeded in repulsing
most of Nebraska's efforts to score.
Warren Howard played a stellar game for Nebraska. Although
his stunts were not up to the usual standard, he did notable work
.in running down punts, and spelling interference. Max Towle, Cap
tain Frnnk nnd Purdy all did good work.
The low score is accounted, for by the fact that the Nebraska
line could not open holes for the backfield, and the terrific fight that
the Missouri team put up. Nebraska was penalized twice when the
ball was within striking distance of the Missouri goal. In the
kicking Missouri got a little the best of Howard and their kicks
were long when Nebraska was near their goal, Missouri's offense
was weak. Although they played hard they did not have the scor
ing machine. Nebraska's interference on end runs and fake kicks
was wonderful, the fake kick was the best ground gainer with How
ard or Potter carrying the ball. Sliehm says the team earned the
cue touchdown and Missouri played a great game.
Missouri won the toss. Nebraska kicked off to Missouri at 2:35
Allen kicking the' ball on a short kick. The field was slippery but
not muddy, both teams were off side for the first three or four downs.

End runs by Frank and Potter put the ball near the middle of
the field. Nebraska's shift plays failed to gain very much.
Second quarter: Nebraska worked the shift plays through the
line for good gains but the forward pass did not work. By end runs
end plunges Nebraska put the ball on Missouri's 5-yard line but
could not put it over. The ball ended in the middle of the field. Hal
ligan's forward pass worked twice for 30 yards and Purdy gained
through line. Nebraska penalized 15 yards, putting the bad I in Mis
Second Half: Missouri kicked off and Hailligam returned the
ball 15 yards. At the first of the half Missouri held both line
