Not Feared, But Is Not Forgotten
by Coaches of the Corn-
husker Team.
The football s(tial last night in
dulled in a series of freak perform
ances consisting of the renowned
"turkey trot. I'exas Tommy" and
the "Ronton dip " Captain Frank sat
out the dances with a fair coed from
Grand Island, and I'urdy was absent
from the hop on account of his name
knee. Coach Stiehni bellows that a
series of these glibby glides is just
what the team needs at this period of
the season's practice
After these pei formaiices a snappy
signal practice was indulged in, in
which the coach's famous pla was
worked up Most of the week's pra
tree is in preparation for the Kansas
game, as only straight tootball will be
used against Doano.
The hospital squad does not seem to
he diminishing ery fast, but has been
growing steadil I'urdy, Harmon and
.Meyer are still nurbing their injuries,
but all will be ready for the Jayhawk
ers a week from Saturday.
A half hour's scrimmage was in
dulged in with the freshmen in which
the pony back Held did good work for
the varsity by pushing over three
touchdowns. The freshmen were
given the ball on the Cornhuskers'
five-yard line and were told to push it
over in four downs, which they failed
to do. The varsity was then given the
ball on the freshman live-yard line,
and one of the bantams carried it over
the first down
The Doane Tigers have the strongest
team they have had for years and are
seriously thinking of holding the
Huskers to a low score Last Satur
day they defeated the Hastings team
by a score of )f to 0, and there is little
doubt but that they will be champions
of the secondary colleges. Tract lcally
the same teatrr as the one which met
the Missouri Valley Champions of last
ear will meet the Huskers this year
The score of last season's contest was
1!5 to 0, but it did not show the rela
tive merits of the two teams, for the
Tigeru suffered severely from fumbles.
The people of Kansas and the stu
dents of the University of Kansas are
preparing to send ,a special train to
Lincoln for the annual game between
the .lay hawkers and the Cornhuskers.
Arrangements are being made with
the railroads for a strictly Jayhawker
train, with all conveniences, including
Pullmans. Over Witt have signified
their intentions of making the trip,
and before the time comes more will
probably join the "thundering thou-
"Jimmy."
