TEAR UP FRESHMAN
JAYHAWKERS IMPROVE IN YES
LINE STILL PUZZLES COACHES
One End and Tackle Position Filled,
But Rest Is Matter of Conjecture
No Man Found to Boot
LAWRENCE, Kas , Nov. 12. (Spe
cial to the Daily Nebraskan, by E. B.
Hackney.) J. IMuvIub, backed by a
cold northor, came out to hinder the
Jayhawkern in their practice last night,
but his worst effortB were of no avail.
Practice was held as per schedule and
the Kansas warriors went through a
stiff scrimmage against the Bond hope
fuls in a cold, drizzling rain.
If anything the Kansas team showed
up slightly better in practice. The
same Bquad of freshman was out as on
the preceding night, and all of them
put up a stiffer defense than ever be
fore. On the offense the varsity backs
ripped big holes in the line and were
able to make big gains Both Coolidge
and Parker appear to be the probable
starters of the game In the backfleld.
Line Problem Unsolved.
The line, however, still remains a
mystery. Brarnwell was shifted back
to tackle again and his posit ion was
turned over to Hatcher, who has been
out of the game on account of his in
juries received in the Drake game.
Milton was used again on the oppo
site end from that occupied by Captain
Brownlee He showed up unusually
well against the freshman and may
prove to be the logical man for this
position. In addition to being a sure
tackier, he is pretty beefy Weidline,
as usual, played well at his position at
tackle. In him Coaches Mosse and
Frank have a man who can be counted
on to break up many of the Cornhuskcr
The booting problem is still unsolved.
No man has arisen to fill this position.
Bramwell was given a try, but did not
prove satisfactory enough to warrant
a change. Maybo somo man may be
developed in the next two' days, but
from present prospects the kicking will
be left in Burnham's hands.
Defense a Trifle Weak.
The defense was not as strong as
usual, and Bottomley and Russell went
through for long gains. The freshman
used Borne of the Nebraska plays and
the varsity failed to solve the majority
of them. Both ends played a good
game and moBt of the end ruiiB were
.stopped with no gain.
Toward the close of practice the var
sity's tackling improved and instead of
the usual mild tactics the Jayhawkers
displayed some real tackling, the kind
where one is good, but two is bettor,
in stopping a runnel. ,
