HUSKERS PUST SHOW DEVELOP
MENT TO DEFEAT KAN SANS.
Ichabods Coming With Strong Team
Plotting Defeat of Nebraskans
Rutgers Defeated Saturday.
Coach Schulto's 1920 football ma
chine has had its first test. The
scrap with the Freshman eleven Sat
urday afternoon was the initial taste
of battle that the ITuskers have on
.ioyed this season. The Varsity-Freshmen
tilt has become an annual event
;.f the Ilusker institution and is usual
ly held on the Saturday preceding
the opening game. Its purpose is to
give the coaches a definite idea of the
real value ' of the material on both
squads and Saturday's game was by
no means a failure in this respect.
The outstanding lesson taught by
the first scrimmage was that the
Cornhusker Varsity must develop to
considerable extent if such teams as
Notre Dame, Michigan Aggies, Kan
sas, Rutgers, Penn State and Wash
ington State are to be defeated and
the University of Nebraska is once
more to enjoy an all-victorious sea
son. The "Frosh" crew held the
Varsity at bay with apparent ease
Saturday and at several stages of the
game outplayed the veterans com
pletely. A sensational run by Thomp
son and the blocking of one of
T.ewellen's punts were responsible for
Varsity scores. The Yearling counter
was earned by straight football. The
1920 Freshman team is equipped with
an exceptionally heavy i.ne and this
accounts in a large measure for the
apparent inabality of the Varsity back?
to make any very substantial gains.
Ichabod Coming Strong.
The few days intervening before
the approaching game with Washburn
must witness some rapid progress in
the Ilusker ranks if Schulte's team is
to chalk up a victory against the
Kansas school. Washburn is by no
means bringing a green or inexperi
enced team to Lincoln and the Corn
nuskers must display greater gri liror
ability than was in evidence Saturday
in order to win. It is quite likely
that the Nebraska line will outweigh
the Washburn forwards as the beefy
Husker line is one of Schulte's main
points of attack. Again it is quite
likely that the Washburn backfield
will possess greater poundage t.ian
the Nebraska aekfield. The No
braska bruks are of the steady, sure
variety, with nothing of the spectacu
lar about them. The Ilusker team
