Old Time Nebraska Pep in Evi
dence at Yesterday's
'We're Going to Can Kansas,"
the Cry of Every
A revival of the old-time Nebraska
spirit and pep which-is goin to put
the Jayhawkers to rout next Saturday
made the first all-university rally on
the athletic field yesterday go off
with a bang. A big crowd, good
speakers and the efforts of this cheer
leaders made the grandstand echo and
re-echo to the demonstrations of en
thusiasm. Nebraska has been sauly
lacking in its support of the team this
year, but everyone left the rany this
morning with the Idea, "We've got to
lick Kansas and we're going to."
Another enthusiasm-making factor
was the band with its pep-producing
music and military appearance. The
S. A. T. C marched to the field.
It has always been considered a
disgrace for Kansas to beat Nebraska,
but that very same thing happened
two years ago, when Nebraska bad
the stronger team, but failed to de
deliver the "punch necessary- to win
the game. In order to prevent a repe
tition of that defeat to Nebraska's
weakened team, everyone has to get
behind that team and root, root, root.
When the Cornhusker song, "Come
a Runnin' Boys," is played every' Hus
ker must rise. He must know the
songs and the yells. You can't put
them across if you don't know them.
Walter Blunk presided over the
Coach Kline Appeals
Coach Kline urged a larger attend
ance at the games and that everyone
learn the songs and the yells. He said
"mt the team would play just like the
people in the bleachers cheer. A 'team
laving every man but one playing his
first year of football needs every bit
cf support loyal Nebraskns can give.
Kanss3 would rather lose every other j
frame and beat Nebraska, than lose
to Ntbrask and win every other game,
t' r- coach declared.
"We've just canned the Kaiser and
ve're going to can Kansas," was Miss
lirLkova's message, "and it's 'I he evcr
lastin' teamwork of every bloomin'
foul' that's going to do It.'
Professor Scott in the closing talk,
ruadp every one who hadn't Acquired
Hie maximum amount of -iep jump to
Lis net and give the yells with all tha j
'Z power he possessed. "'Don't lc a j
quitter," he said. "Every one who
knows anything about Kansas knows
H:al old 'Kansas fight,' the "never-five-up'
spirit." In order to combat
'hat successfully Cornhuskers will
have to yell, ye-11 loud and yell long.
Just as the Jayhawk was downed
3 from the beginning of the game to
Hie end, so will he be this year if every
f'ornhus'ker will turn out for tbe game
"nd simply drown the "Rock-chalk.

May Pnll Into Camp in Time to
Battle Against Kansas
Kline "Withholds His Jubilation
and Awaits Developments
Lantz Called Home
The news that Schelienberg may re
turn from Camp Grant in time to par
ticipate in the Husker-Jayhawk game
next Saturday, spread over the campus
like lard in a hot skillet yesterday, and
Nebraska stock shot skyward n the
manner of a star shell and chased the
gloom clouds off the premises.
Captain Maclvor spilled the beans
at the football rally yeserday morning
and Coach Kline and Director Scott
nearly jumped out of their seats for
the telegram containing the news was
hot off the wire. It is not an absolute
certainty that the star halfback will
pull into camp in time to jump into the
moleskins before Saturday's battle,
but he and the other infantry candi
dates are to be sent back to Nebratka
forthwith as all calls to officers'
schools have been cancelled.
The Nebraska commandant was noti
fied that the officers' camps had bee.-. ' -f
closed just after the last contingent
boarded the cars...Ior Illinois Shel--.
lenberg was intercepted at Chicago
and if he could catch a west bouud
freight or a fast mail train he might
be able to reach Lincoln by- Saturday,
the captain stated.
In spite of the encouraging outlook.
Coach Kline refused to become too
jubilant and optimistic. Bill Lantz,
the midget halfback, was called borne
to Ravenna, Nebraska, yesterday on
account of sickness in bis fam'ly. and
may not be able to play tomorrow.
The coach is planning on using How
arth, Jobes, Martin, Hartley and Rey
nold's 5n the back field and :s not pin
ning much, faith on Schelly's return.
Of course if he does get back in t:r.ie
it will be like a life line to a drown Ii.g

All was joy in the barracks last
evening:. Because cf an error, the reg

later than u.-ual and as a result, most

spirit, or in pocketbook. Many were
borrowing necessary funds from tbeir
good friend. "Bill," or from tome oth

the magic words "pay Cay" were bent
