tice this afternoon on the athletic
field before leaving for Lincoln,

ker squad Saturday afternoon. The
red and white warriors, accompanied
by Coaches Allison and Kckberg

They are duo lo arrive in the Hits
ker camp Saturday morning. Ac
companying the coach will be the
eleven men who played in last Sat
urday's game, and several substi
tutes. Allison and Kckberg have a
number of promising substitutes in
case any of the first string men are
put out.
Tho Coyote squad this week com
pleted their fourth week of intensive
practice. They look tho field on
September 4 and have been busy
every since. Allison is optimistic,
and says his men are in excellent
enmlitinn. There is no one of the
injured list, and the men are tough
ened from a months' hard work on
tho gridiron.
Just what Allison expects at Lin
coln remains a matter or conjecture
tonight, as tho squad prepared to
leave. The coach intimated that the
H inkers would got all that his squad
had. and that's considerable, but as
to the outcome, the coach was enig

The concert will be brief anil danc

best dance music will he provided, a -

Tho program of the concert not

extremely pleasing, with brand-new
music that has never been before on
the University campus. This will be
the initial appearance of the I'niver
sity band on the concert platform this
season. Students should not miss the
opportunity to hear the band at thU
performance, say the members of the
hand. Students should come early i'.i

The band has been making rapid
progress this season. It includes
ixty of the choicest musical talent
on the campus. Director William T
Quick and Captain Buford Gage se
lected the very bast of the candidates
that tried out for band this fall. The
past two weeks have been spent ir
working a set of entirely new num
bers. According to Captain Gage a
number of fast snappy marches have
been rehearsed and will be used at
the football game. On the campus
there has been some criticism in the
past two years playing the same old
tunes and making the same noise on
selections such as the "Old Gray

Head Coach Dawson will probably
restrict this afternoon's workout to
signal drills and practices of forma
tions and shifts. The workout yes
tetday afternoon was the best that
i iuis been hold thus far, Die HusKers
I putting lots of fire in the drills, and
' showing some real stuff in the clash
'with the Freshmen. The first "Var-
i sity scored throe touchdowns against
the strong Yearling team
in about
I twenty minutes.
The Cornhusker
i defense
was working good, and con
ripped through the frosh
line for long gains.
When the Baskets trot on the field
for tomorrow's fray, they will be in
the best of physical condition. No
Husker regular is on the hospital
list, and the men have toughened
considerably as a result of two weens
aj,uj(y in a real game. Dawson may
fore the game. Every man who will
start the game Saturday has already
won his letter in football at Nebraska.
Captain Hartley picked up a
Yearling fumble soon after the open
ing of the scrimmage, Thursday, and
raced thirty yards for a touchdown.
A few minutes later Herb DeWiU
intercepted a first-year pass and raa
to their five yard line, where Noble
went over on a line plunge. The
third "Varsity touchdown was made
when Sherer caught a long pass and
ran to a touchdown. Preston kicked
goal on the try for point on eery
touchdown, making the score 214.
After the 'Varsity scored the third
touchdown, Dawson sent in the sec
ond team, which was clearly out
plaved by the Freshman, who kept

but could not posh it over.
