Nebraska Team Makes Debut in
Eastern Football Circles in Clash
with New Jersey Eleven.

Scarlet and Cream Squad in Excellent
Shape Schulte Praises Rutgers
Clan and Expects Hard Battle.
Nebraska's warriors wake their
debut into eastern football cycles
this afternoon when they mis with
,;,P fast Rutgers team at the Polo
rounds in New York City.
The game promises to be one of
the hardest fought contests seen in
me east this year on account of the
fn- that an eastern team does not
like :o bow to a western team. Today
is a holiday in New York and one of
the largest crowds that ever attended
a football game is expected to throng
the Giants' home.
The Cornhuskers are in good con
dition after their four days trip and
are ready to give Rutgers one of the
hardest battles that school has had
this year. Nebraska has suffered
only one defeat so far this year and
that was at the hands of the for
midable Notre Dame team. All of
the men are anxious to keep up the
good work and are going to fight all
the harder to keep from being de
feated. Rutgers have been defeated
in a number of games this year but
all of their defeats have been by
some of the foremost teams in the
east. Coach Sanford of the Rutgers
crew is noted for the "fighting spirit"
his teams have displayed in their
former games and he has promised
the followers of the Rutgers clan that
Nebraska will have to fight for every
inch of grouniTthe Huskers gain in
the battle.
Schulte Not Confident.
The Cornhuskers were met in
Niagara Falls by Coach Schulte who
saw the Rutgers-Cornell game Satur
day. Tie has been giving the squad
the dope on the New Yorkers. Final
instructions were given the men yes

confident of winning the game but
intends to give the easterners a real
battle. Thf following report has been
received from Niagara Falls and will

Election and Football Returns Are
Features of Program at Chamber
cf Commerce.
Hundreds of alumni and ex-students
of the University will revel at the
Lincoln Chamber of Commerce to
night at 6 o'clock, when their annual
get-together banquet is planned. Th?
entertainment will depart from the
more staid and dignified alumni ban
quets cf the -past. The commitft-e
has promised that the only serious
part of the evening will be the elec
tion returns and that thei will not
be serious to everybody. The go
even so far as to prophesy that Ne
braska will win the Ruigers game.
The plot of the evening is laid
about the presidential candidates who
will each tell in a talk not to exceed
ten minutes just how they happened
to be elected. The candidates have
all accepted at least men who look
like future presidents have accepted.
The guests will be divided equally
into the various national political
parties in order to Insure vociferous
"Yearly Shock to Appear."
Another feature of the evening will
be the appearance or the first yearly
newspaper known as "The Yearly
Shock." It will be filled with ridicu
lous personalities regarding the great
:,nd rear-great among the alumni and
former student! at the University.
Any reader who finds a word of trut h
in the newspaper will be awarded a
prize. The board of editors has al
ready left town, it is reported, in
order to escape assault and suits for
s'aider and libel. Songs, stunts,
football and election returns, along
with Nebraska yells, will reign until
o'clock, alter which th rcti or the
evening will be spent in dancing.
It- nervations for places at the feast
n-,y still be made by telephoning
r.r,.r:.ri or consulting Miss Annis

Administration building.
