Then t'aptaln Hill thought no would
make a fancy play or two himself. Ho
ho hciiiIh a man down tho Hold to catch
the uuartor-lmok's punt, after they had
gained seven and u half yardH through
the line-all that wiih possible. Our boyn
have not not over laughing at that punt
yet. Tin- hall went twenty yard, and
an Thorpe braced himself to catch It, the
burly form of a Mlsmiuilan knocked hint
over ami caught It lilnwi-lf. Wi-H now of
course this was tho name kind of a punt
that Thorpe had been making. No one
could have told that Missouri crowd that
It wiih not. The unplre mount It In all
fairness, and ho let Missouri keep tho
ball. From that time "" l,a' llK0,'H ('0,',(1

The ball Is on our twenty-live yard line

the end on a bluff pass and scores tho
winning touchdown. Shedd failed a dlf
Missouri punts for thlrty-llvo yards on
the ktck-olT, which Thorpe carries back
thirteen yards. Turner takes the ball
three yards In the rlRht direction, and
Packard makes four yards on a fake
kick. WlKKlns makes two and a punt
Klves Nebraska twenty more. Shepard
carries tho ball back suven yards. The
tlKors mnmiKe to Bet six yards around
the end and then ten for an off-side play
by Kellar. They cannot Kaln throiiBh
the line, and after makliiK only two yards
In three attempts, Nebraska takes the
Nebraska takus the ball on her thirty
Boven yard line. Turner makes tlvo yards
but the next two plays does not Rot Ne
braska unythliiK and Packard punts for
forty-ono yards. Missouri Rets tho ball
twenty-seven yards from her Roal lino.
Tho tlBcrs at this time were about wear
led out. After every play almost thoy
called for time. It was Impossible for
them to advance the ball except by punt
lnR. The boys would break throuRh tho
lino and tear their Interference to pieces.
In two plays they lose three yards, and
punt to the center. After a Rain of two
yurds by Turner, Nebraska punts back
twenty-live yards. This was done In tho
hope that the tlRers would fumble the
ball but they didn't. In two attempts
through the line they lose tlvo yards, and
punt on tho remaining trial for fifteen
yards. On the next play Turner goes
through tho lino for twelve yards, but
time Is called at this Juncture. The play
ers on both sldeH wero much satlslled
thereat. The time-keeper stretched tho
llmo a llttlo to give olther side a fair
Chance to score.
After giving tho tiger yell the Nebraska
boys rushed from the Held, took a bath
and hurried to tho depot without supper
as the train loft- at fl o'clock. Nothing
further was seen of tho Missouri "root
ers", and If thoy proposed three cheers
for tho Nebraska team, nobody heard
thorn. After bruises were counted it
was found that no ono sustained any
thing serious. All tho boys wore sore and
tired. Thoy wanted suppor and rest.
Centrnlla Is a Utttlo town twenty-four
miles from Columbia. Tho boys swooped
down on tho blBBCst hotel they could find
and almost cleaned them out. They re
tired Immediately nftorward, settlns to
sleep by eight o'colck. They left Con
tralla at 3:15 tho next morning, going to
Kansas City on tho Wabash, and from
thero to Lincoln by way of Omaha on
As tho team left, Missouri refused to pay
flfty-llvo dollars of tho expenses, clalm
lnct hat last year, the University club
of Omaha, rofused to pay that much or
their expenses. Tho matter will bo
brought up at tho annual meeting of tho
officers of tho league.

room, no attention wiih paid to It. Thou

deuce and culled him out for u speech.
Tho Kloo club then appeared and huhk the
"Scarlet and tho Creiini."
Tho next stopping place was at the
homo of Captain Oullfoyle. He appeared
and addressed tho boys In a neat speech.
Dr. Ward was next visited. Ho also ad
dressed the crowd, and talked of Rotting
up tho right kind of a reception for thoiu.
After niarchliiK around through the prin
cipal hotels, tho boys dispersed with Him
roushiR cheers for tho toatn.
On Tuesday ntornliiR It was announced
In chapel that all students were request
ed to turn out and Rive the boys a royal
welcome. Shortly after live o'clock, a
large crowd of students went to the de
pot. The cadet band was also In attend
ance. Ah If this were not enough, to
produce noise, u steam traction engine
was engaged for the occasion. The crowd
was disappointed when tho boys wero not
found on tho train. Then It was an
nounced that the Jeuin would return at
S:30. Doc Kverott had to march his co
horts buck to tho university.
There was nothing to do but wait. Al
ter supper the red light appeared iiKuln.
Notwithstanding the disappointment of
the afternoon, there was a larRe crowd
at the depot In tho evening. When tho
train ai rived, the cheers were deafenliiR.
Thero was no mistake about It this
time. Tho team was on the train. He
fore tho players had a chance to allRht

hands then took hold of the long rope
and pulled tho coach with the victorious
team through tho city.
Tho boys yelled nnd the gtrla blew their
horns. Red fire blazed alonR the march,
and tho traction engine spreuehed fuith
Its most discordant sounds.
Tho boys were finally hauled up to the
nrmory where n largo crowd had alieady
Immediately there wero cries for
speeches from the ilirfereut members of
the team. One after another they mount
ed tho leather horse and briefly told of
how the Riime was won. After the play
er had told their hlory. Chancellor Mac
Lean, Dr. Ward and Roscoe Pound ad
dressed the audience. The old unlversll
yell wns then Riven with a will and the
celebration was ended.

but the boys hud to leave too soon after
The Missouri rooters were not well
drilled or organized and did not mukohalf
as much noise as tho same number of
Nebraska boys could do.
Some young lady passed the Powers
hotel where the boys were staying, wear
ing the scnrlet and cream. The boys
looked wonderlngly at each other, but
the young lady did not Introduce her
self. Oury went "nil to pieces" when Pnok
ard made that second touchdown. No ono
knows whether he was Just really happy
at tho chanco of beating Missouri, or
whether ho wns thinking of Hie eiowd
that would be at tho Omaha game.
