With the game apparently lost by a
scoro of 3 to 0 up to the laBt four
minutes of play, the strong Cornhusker
team regained its feet and rushed two
touchdowns across tho Jayhawkor goal
line before the final whistle. Ernie
Frank won the game when he carried
the ball on what appeared to be an off
tackle play from tho Nebraska 30-yard
lino through tho Jayhawker secondary
defense for a touchdown. A couple
of minutes after Frank had made his
sensational run of 70 yards Warren
Howard caught a Kansas forward pass
and raced for another touchdown.
When the Cornhusker started tho
game it was apparent that the Ne
braska team was the superior. The
first period threw a scare into tho
Nebraska supporters, for the Kansas
team clearly outplayed tho Cornhusk
ers. The second and third quarters
tho Cornhuskers came back strong and
held them even Neither Bide scored
until in the fourth quarter, when Kan
sas, after bucking their way to the
Cornhusker 10-yard line, were halted.

But Sophs Take Everything Else
Except Middleweight Box
With but little compunction for their
lack of politeness, the sophomores
overwhelmed their freBhmen adversar
ios In the Olympics Saturday by the
decisive bcoto of flfi to 55.
The sophB had the better of tho argu
ment throughout the meet, savo ln
some instances, when the decisions
were quite close The freshmen had
the satisfaction, however, of winning:
the supreme event of the morning,
which was the '"big scrap," netting"
them 50 points The science of tho
sophs seemed to aid them materially
In the clash with the freshles, who
lacked the experience of their rivals.
The sophs also maintained that tholr
policy of secrecy and their diplomatic
methods played quite a part In tholr
victory, as they "had "cm guessing"
the greater part of the time.
The freshmen are to be congratu
lated upon the plucky flght they put
up In all of the events, een If the lonjc
end of the score fell to the lot of tho
