The "Illinois Special" will pull out
of the Burlington station this after
noon at 6 o'clock with a large) num
ber of students and Iluaker rooters
on board. The train will reach its
destination, Urbana, III., about 11:30
o'clock Saturday morning, giving
those who make the trip plenty of
opportunity for visiting the campus
of the University of Illinois.
Reports from the Burlington ticket
office are to the effect that a large
portion of the tickets have been sold
and that the office expects a large
demand for tickets today. Several
organizations, both on and off the
campus have signified their inten
tion of going to Illinois en masse. The
special will be one of the best equip
ped trains on the road, carrying
pullmans, chair cars and a diner.

Outcome Discussed! By Papers.
Much interest has been displayed
in the Nebraska-Illinois game this
year and the outcome is the question
of much discussion by metropolitan
newspapers. Perhaps the reason for
this is that both teams are lead by
Ail-American players of last year
and that Coach Bearg of Nebraska is
a former pupil of Coach Zuppke of
Illinois. The game will undoubtedly
develop into a battle of strategy be
tween these two coaches.
Nebraska has emerged victor in
four of the six games that these two
teams have played against each
other. It has only been in the past
two years that Illinois has been able
to defeat the Cornhuskers. Many of
the Nebraska rooters going to Ur
bana on the. special are confident
that the Huskers will avenge their
defeats of the past two games. ,
The schedule for the "Illinois Spe
cial" has been made especially for
the benefit of the students of Ne
braska. TLe train will leave Lincoln
at 5 o'clock today and will arrive
in Chicago at 7:30 o'clock tomor
row. The train will reach Urbana
at 11 :30 o'clock, giving students
plenty of time before the game which
is called for 2 o'clock. The return
trip will start at 6 o'clock, the train
arriving in Chicago at 8:30 o'clock.
The special will leave Chicago at
12:30 o'clock, Sunday and will ar
rive in Lincoln Sunday afternoon.
The round-trip fare for the trip
is ?19.76 from Lincoln and from

AT HOME GAMES
Student Activities Office Be
lieves More Tickets Than
Ever Will Be Sold.
NOTRE DAME SALES RISE
The ticket sales for the Notre
Dame game are still increasing and
it is expected by the Student Activi
ties office that all of the scats will
bo sold for this game by the middle
of next week. It is planned now to
erect 15,000 temporary seats for
this game. These scats, however,
will not go on sale until the stands
nre sold out."
With the exception of the Wash
ington University game October 17,
the seats to the other games are
selling about as they have in former
years. It is expected that the sales
to these games will pick up in the
near future and that record-break
ing crowds will attend all of the
Washington Is First Home Came.
The Washington University game
is the first home game and should
be well attended. There seems to be
a popular misconception about this
game, however, and many people
think that it is the Washington Uni
versity at St. Louis, Mo., that is to
play here, while in reality it is the
Washington State University of
Seattle, Wash. This game, instead
of being an easy game as it is popu
larily supposed, will be one of the
hardest games of the season as the
Washington team is one of the
strongest teams on the coast.
Mr. Selleck thinks that the Notre
Dame game is killing the sales on
many of the other games and that
the entire attendance at all of the
other games will be much injured
hv this one game. The University
of Minnesota is having the same dif
ficulty in the sales on their games
nther than the Notre Dame one. bo
many people who can come to but
one game will choose the Notre Dame
game and the seat-sales on the other
games will, fall off accordingly.
It is expected, however, that the
sales to all of the games will be
larger than in former years as com
fortable seating is insured to a great
er extent than in any year prior to

OF CRACK CADETS
Best Men From Junior Advanced
Course Will Be Drilled for
An exhibition drill platoon to be
composed of crack drillers in the
junior advanced course and others
who can qualify is being organized
by Captain Victor G. Huskea for ex
hibition drill on special occasions,
and competition with crack units of
The platoon will be specially train
ed in the manual, marching, and
silent combined drill, and when fully
trained will execute silently from
eight to thirty-two movements with
out a word being said.
There will be an exhibition squad
in the platoon, which will be trained
in a special "Cornhusker" manual
originated by Captain Huskea.
Juniors in the advanced course who
qualify in the tryouts will form the
main part of the platoon. Others
can enter the tryouts regardless of
their taking the advanced course.
Captain Huskea plans to start ac
tive work on the organization as
soon as rifles can be obtained from
Nebraska Hall, and hopes to have the
unit in shape to put on an exhibition
drill in between halves of some of
the later football games. In winter
there will probably be an exhibition
at some basketball game.
Next spring there may be special
competitions with units from other
schools. The platoon will put on a
special feature during Compet next
May. Members will however have to
drill with their regular companies.
Captain Huskea has drilled crack
units before, and in 1908 led the
exhibition drill platoon of the Thir
teenth Infantry which won first place
in Ak-Sar-Ben competitions at Oma
