in the game boro Saturday things wid
1)0 entirely ditToivnt,.
Williamson is said to bo ono of tlio
best men on any western llold to ad
vance the ball, and we all know how
he can tackle. Outlaud made his repu
tation as a ground gainer against Iowa
and carries the ball in splendid form.
Rig Shorty llamill, the loft guard, is
ft. :i and weighs abo.it 220, and if he
gets loose around the end you want to
begin to count the white linos as bo
crosses them. Pope, the left tackle, is
a big, tine looking fellow, and will
probably try to eat holes in our poor
little Hay ward, but the rest of the
boys have a way of helping our "boy
wonder" out when he is in trouble.
Hoth Top and Foster, the other tackle,
are over 0 feel tall and aro a good pair,
On the ends are Piatt and (.James.
1'iatt bus a great knack of punching a
tew people during the course of the
game, but wo hope to havo honest
otUcials who will promptly ride him oil"
if he undertakes any of his unfair tac
tics. Games, on the other end, has
been hero before, as he played on the
Hakor team the year our coach Thomas
had them in tow and when they were
never defeated. Although Hilly has
hair that is rivaled in its chrysantho
nuunness by none except Lee of Poano
who will attend the game) you must
not think bun clTcmiiiatc, as he has a
ureal faculty of tearing great holes in
the opposing team's interference.
Hill at quarter is a clear headed, active
fellow who rings signals off at such a
speed that the team is kept hustling to
get oil the ground beforo the ball is
Miapped. This is evidenced by the fact
that in the Kausas-Doaue game just
ninety-live plays were niado in the lirst
lialf which is exactly the number made
in the whole of the Missouri-Nebraska
game, llestor the full back has to be
watched as he is liable to kick a goal
from most any part of the Held. Ho
just missed ono by a foot from the !I0
yard line in the Donno game. He
bucks the line like a cannon ball and
is a hard man to stop. This is indeed
a very formidable organization which
we are to try conclusions with on Sat
urday. Their toam work is superb,
and their variety of plays groat, as
thoj run every man on tho team with
tlio ball except tho center, and ho is
always with tho ball anyway. Opposed
to this Is our aggregation of cripples.
King has not boon able to practice at
all, while Whipple has had to quit the
toam on account of tho work connected
with the mtinrtgomont of affairs. Hud
Jones lias not recovered from his in
juries received at Sioux City sufficiently
to warrant him hi ontoring the game
Saturday, but wo hope that ho will bo
In shape- for the Doauo game. (Jury

and the difforonco in size between

NO CHARGE POR RESERVED SEATS.
It was suited in tho last Nhukaskan
that, there would be no- extra charge
for reserved seats at tho foot-ball game
Saturday. Kverybody will be glad to
know that this statement is correct.
The Idea of charging twanty-llive cents
for seats on the bleachers was enter
tained seriously by the management
and reserved seal tickets were printed,
but the plan has been dropped, and
your tlfty cents will admit you to the
best seats on tho ground. Tho bleach
ers at the M street park without a
doubt form the best accommodations
ever offered on a foul-ball Held. They
extend directly along the side lines and
the lirst seat is raised fully four feet
from tho ground, so that no matter
how great the crowd in front may be.
the spectator occupying a seat has a
clear view of every part of the Held.
The managers after looking at these
immediately decided that they were
worth charging oxtra lor, but it bus
been decided not to do it, much to the
delig.it of everyone who is patriotic
enough to attend tho game with a
co-ed. And by the way, better indorse
tlio lenient policy of the management
by taking a co-ed.
If you want a vest pocket Testament
printed on India paper, but one inch
wide and half an inch thick, just look
over the stock at Herpolsheinicr.fcCo's.
THE CHANCELLOR TALKS.
The Chancellor gave a strong talk
about foot-ball at chapel on Tuesday
morning. The chapel was pretty well
crowded on both sides ot the bouse
and the talk was received with vigor
ous applause. The Chancellor began
by announcing the three games which
are to take place within the mouth,
and urged every student to go to tho
games. Ho especially urged tho
students to attend the Thanksgiving
game at Omaha, llo said that at least
f00 young men should go. He was of
the opinion that a special university
train would bo provided, and if such
was tho case, that it should bo deco
rated 'with tho University colors in
such a way as to attract wide-spread
attontion. He said that with the (.id
of tho Omaha club that we should be
able to take Omaha for tho University.
As a parting word ho gave warning to
the young men who get too enthusias
tio in celebrating a victory. Ho said
that ho wanted everyone to bo jolly
and have all the tun possible out of a
victory, but that he did not like to see
destruction of property. Tho talk was
frequently interrupted by applauso,
and when tho Chancellor suggested
that every young man in tho Univer
sity should do his duty and take a
young lady to tho game on Saturday
there was deafening applaus'i. IIo
announced that all who attended the
game on next Tuesday afternoon would
bo excused from recitations.

Tom Mastou, one of the coaohors of
the Kansas team, was getting points
from the side lines on Saturday. His
team plays Nebraska at Lincoln on
November 10 ami he wanted to dud
Nebraska's weak points. An amusing
incident occurred during the progress
of the game. Pop Hliss and Maston
were together when Wilson and ids
"gang" were making their famous
plunges in the second half, and Hlis
was worried for his team at the time
and Maston was thinking what would
become of ids team when the rushers
came at them. "Hltss. says Maston
"how do yon stop those plunges?"
"JJ u it," said "Pop," who was not lit
thobvst of humor at tho time, "If I
know how to stop them, don't yon sup
posu 1 would have them stopped?"
