Forward Pass Rule.
The most striking and inteiesting
mle is the oii- which states that when
a foi ward pass is tin own out of
bounds befoM striking the giound in
tin- field of play the ball shall go to
tin- opponent at the point wheie it
niisspil the h-deline The significance
ol this r"le s great and Its lmpoit
ha- not been -tasped In main teams
In In n t t .'.ins that if a team is

Good old Cornhusker Field, the bat
tie scarred nursery of NebiaHka ath

afternoon. U-tmflVred from an acme
attack of Indigestion duo to an over
diet of freshmen The ground was
gieen, the atmosphere was green, yea,
the whole world was green Yes, Eth

ascertain whether it was a pot-pourri

pic t in e I loin life's other side
Tin- naiassed vaisltv lads charged

When thev ch.iiged hither ihev lost

Otherwise the varsity and freshmen
football teams spent a very interest

the first touchdown of the session.
Goal was kicked Time after time
Harmon's proteges ripped up the var

wing was especially weak, Erwln, right
tackle, seeming to be unable to stop
the plays that came his direction
Stiehni finally replaced him with
Grosse, who was able to stem the tide.
The Varsity Scores.
After the first freshman touchdown
the varsitv came back strong, and
Towle drew second blood In seven min
utes on a delayed pass He also kicked
goal, evening up the score. By this
time the varsity boyi had their "steam"

and Rutherford scored the second
