The Haskell Indian football team,
with coaches, a bunch, of rooters and
a bond arrivod here this morning.
They are all full of redskin pep and
are determined to w ipe out the mem
ory of the awful beating they received
at the hands of the said paleface Corn-
huflkera in. 1910 when they were
swamped by tho score of 119 to 0
What the Coaches Say:
Coach "Jumbo" Stiehm, the wondor
worker, rlaes in the council of war
and discourses thusly. "I canaidor this
name one of tho hardest on the sched
ule. It will be one of the greatest
exhibition!) of modern football that
the west ha) ever witnessed."
Coach Kenned, the mentor of the
swarthy aborigines chants this battle
cry: ' "My men haw won every game
this seaaoD by large scores. The de
feat of Minnesota by Nebraska gives
us a chance to be Western ChamplonB.
Game Will Be Some Pow-Wow.
Tho game today on Cornhusker field
will be a heap big pow-wow. The
Indians use the open btyle of playing
and are counting on victory because
of this. Inasmuch as the Cornhuskors
won over Minnesota by using the mod
ern, open dtyle mode of playing it
can be safely said that the game will

HaaWeM Indians' Strength.
The Indians have been reinforced
by five Carlisle plaers They do not
play under conference rules hence a
man is played as long as he makes
good, be that one. two, four or five
years. The redskins are a decidedly
unknown quantity They have won all
their games so far this season and
that by largo scores, beating Emporia
college 60 to 0 and Uaker 18 to 0.
Hut the teams they were playing wore
not what might be called strong. Then
too, the aborigines fluctuate from year
to year. One year they are a tribe
of howling good players and another
year they are a bunch of squaws. Wit
ness tho game in 1909 when they beat
the Nebraakans 16 to 5 and the next
year the Cornhuskors ground them In
to the dust by the score of 119 to 0.
Thoy are said to have an exception
ally good team this year and are
bound to put up a game fight. Unless
tho Cornhuflkers are carrying an over
load of confidence resulting from the

Turn out fellows, this is for you
Professor Howard of the Sociology
department gave a vory Instructive
talk on the question, "Domocracy In
the American UnlvorBlty yesterday."
The student body, Professor Howard
thinks, would do more and better
work if given more freedom but at
the same made responsible In certain
ways In their organizations the stu-
dents should manago to get In only
responsible young people and then
give them the privilege to carry out
their policies in their own most ef
ficient way.
Professor Howard expressed an
earnest desire to see the faculty con
trol method tried In this school as It
is In some of the prominent schools
of the country. A Faculty Board for
the purpose of planning and prescrib
ing a curriculm is a method which ac
cording to the speaker should be en
titled to consideration.

color line is a great point in favor of

since the game last Saturda The
simplest and trueHt answer is that
Minnesota met a team that played a
more effective brand of football. We
have won for so many years that we
have come to think that the Nebraska
game is to come to us as a foregone
conclusion. We forget that Nebraska
has a large student body to draw from
and that they have had good coaching
and that there Ib no reason why they
should not win their fair share of
tho games with Minnesota.
"Doubtless many excuses will be of
fered. We shall offer none. Minne
sota was up against tho real thing in
football and was not able to make
good. To be twice Inside the 5-yard
line and fail to got the ball over either
time doos not look good.
"Wo might get a lot of cold comfort
by quoting to give her the credit of
winning the game last Saturday be
cause she had the better team."

This Fall.
It is Interesting to note, at this time
when many Nebraska students are
figuring on the chances of getting into
tho Big Nine, that other universities
have this same hope. Marquette Uni
versity, counting on Its past efforts
against the northwostorn teams, Is
said to have applied this fall. Nebras
ka will be content to got away with
tho Missouri Valleyluck and tho ele
ments continuing to shine favorably,
before going further along the ladder
of football promotion.
