NEBRASKA'S GAME WAD POOR
Tin' 1'lnylng of tho UnlvorHlly Boys ling-

ul 11 Critical Momuiit mill hut
tho MothoillHtH Bnoro.
AfKi tho llrst tun minutes of tho game
uenv NobrnsKii and WoHloyun lit tho
M Hired park Saturday, It would luivo
been illllU'iill to toll JumI what tho nuturu
of 1 In- Mport wiih. TIioho llrst ton minutes
wen' all right. Thoy rimlly lusted twolvo
minute, and during that ttmo Nobrnska
scored a point a mlnuto. lint after Unit
the Ktraln was too great mid hIio lot up.
Just what Hclzcd tho boys nil of u sud
den, no ono can toll. Thoy woro playing
football, hut thoy found out Unit thoy did
not luivo any ono to play against so thoy
let up. It was about this ttmo that tho
enemy began to rcallzo its prodtcamont.
So there was a mutual and tacit under
standing. Hut It rathor appalled tho pat
riotic fow who wanted to sou how tho
boyx lld up tho Missouri tlgors. It wax
fun for awhile to sue Orllo Thorpe scoot
down that Mold for about forty yards.
Tlii'ii 1'ackard would go around the other
slde.Yes all this was amusInK to tho grand
stand. Hut when tho ball went In touch
on the kick-off nnd was brough back to
tho twonty-llvo yard lino and Nebraska
with the bull In her hands scored u safety
for Wesloyan In Just two plays then that
grand stand thought uomothlng was the
mutter. When loll two more plays and
Wesloyan gets tho ball another and sho
Iiiih scored a touchdown ugulnst tho In.
Hut then that was nil that Wesloyan did.
They got eight points eight moro than
any one "houghl thoj would got except
tlicim-clvet Hut Captain's fhorpo's men
are excusable". 'Thoy had no good and suf
llrlent rounds for believing that thoy.
were playing against a football team.
And the game wont on. Wcslcynn put
up u good punting game, whllo Nebraska
wiih ehoik full of tricks. Thoy worked
too on the unsophisticated. To tho No
brnsknns, the gnmo was bonollclal in
many respects. It added about sixty dol
lars to tho treasury and made a strong
practice game for tho team. Jt showed
them that It takes Interest to win a
game besides a llttlo hard work.
The umpire was, Leo, captain of Donno
team. umplro;C. F. Fisher of Donne, ref
eree, laineron and Noblo of Wesloyan,
linesmen. Tho lino up was:
Leonard luft und Melford
Dumi loft tacklo Dungan
Hoffman left guard Hanson
Oleson-KIU'hlo.. quarter Thorpo
Stoner center Kellar
Carver left half Packard
VnnDuzer (eapt.).. right half Shedd

Thomas right tacklo Peurso
llgenrrltz right end Wiggins
H Fltehle full Cook-Cowgll
Subsltutog f0P Wesloyan, Hull Konipor and
Cunningham; for Nebraska, Bobbins,
Cameron and Lowory.
Wesleyan won tlio toss and took tho
west goal. Tho gnmo sturted off with a
forty-live yard kick by Shedd. Van Duzor
caught the ball nnd kicked back past tho
center and strnngo enough followed tho
ball fast enough to tacklo Thorpo boforc
ho had returned It moro than llvo yards.
Hut this was play and not Nebraska's
style of work, so they started at tho lino
nnd with gains of from two to ton years,
thoy advanced to a rolnt Just twolvo
Inches from tho Methodists' touch lino.
But there they stopped.
Wcslcynn took a hand for a couplo of
downs at tho lino work, but It was too
much llko work for those gontlomen, so
Nobrnska soon regained this lost ground
ny tho most brilliant play of tholr careor,
hero being a twenty-yard end run by
Thorpe. Oleson mado a beautiful tacklo.
But Packard procoeded around tho other
end nnd crossed tho lino. Shedd kicked
an easy goal.
Scoro; Nobrnska 6 Wesloyan 0.
After tho kick-oft Wiggins mado four
yards nnd Cook sovon. Thon Hanson
started through a hole In tho lino that Tio
happoncd to notlco and preceded by a
smllo that would have dono Hoagland
credit, ho skated over six five-yard spaces.
Hero ho concluded ho had dono onough
and so, not seeing anyone to tacklo him,
n Just luld down and laughed, ho was so
Wesloyan brnced up hero and took tho
Ddl on downs, but for somo unknown
reason Mr. Oleson was bo unwise as to run
With the ball and the umpire said Nebras
ka could have It awhile.
Nebraska's glory did not Inst long,
though, und the ball was the Methodists'
again on downs. Right here some of tho
prettiest tackling of the game was dona
by Fllohlc. Ilo saved considerable ground
for his team.
A number of punts and lino plays now
on either side brought the ball to a point
within throo yards of Wesloynn's goal and
Shedd took It over. Shedd kicked tho goal
Just thirteen minutes since ho kicked the
Scoro; Nebraska 12, Wesloyan 0.
score stood, Nobrnska 12 Wosloynn 8.
To start tho good work Wosloyan's full
back kicked the ball from tho contor clear
over tho touch line. Packard got It and
Nebraska went to tho twonty-llvo yard
line for a scrimmage. Wiggins lost about
ten yards and Thorpo gavo tho signal for
u punt. Wesloyan blocked tho punt and
although Nebraska saved tho ball, It was
forced back over tho lino and Wesloyan
had two points.
Score; Nebraska 12, Wosloynn 2.
Then there was Joy among tho dlsclp'es
of John Wesloy. Tho boys hooted and
yelled nnd those Junior girls didn't do a
thing but wavo their colors and call tho
playors by nnmo and cheer as If thoy
enjoyed It. And suro enough tho boys do
served tho prnlso for vorlly thoy wero
playing good football.
Tho ball wont again to tho twonty-llvo
yard line, but Nobrnska had gono to pieces
and couldn't play.
Wosloynn was encouraged and played
tho gamo und In ono, two, thrco order they
wont to Nebraska's goal and Carver went
over llko a shot. Ilglnfrltz kicked a vory
dllllcult goal In beautiful shapo nnd tho
Wesloyan scored no moro, either In tho
remaining minutes of tho llrst or In the
second half, but thoy held Nebraska
down nnd between their accelerated spirits
and Nebraska's don't-enro loose sort of
playing, thoy hold their opponents down
to ono moro touch down nnd goal.
Tho second hnlf started at 4:20 o'clock.
The ball changed hands but onco and Wes
loyan by a criss-cross play carried it
to within ii foot of tho Nobrnska touch
line and about as near the side. Another
down nnd thoy failed to advance, but car
ried It over the side lino. Thoy carried It
In and tried tho lino again but could not
gain. Turner's great strength ciuno Into
excellent service hero and nlded much In
saving a touch down for the Mothodists.
Nebraska took the ball on downs and
gradually carried It back. A nice run by
Wiggins was cut short by the crowd piled
up close to the teams.
Cowglll took Cook's place at full-back.
Tho prettiest punt of tho gnmo was now
mado by Thorpe. He kicked tho ball
seventy yurds and being on tho llrst down
fooled tho AVesloyun full-back, who did
not got It till Nobrnska mon wero on him.
Shedd made another touch down and
kicked goal. This mado tho last scoring of
Score: Nebraska IS, Wesloyan 8.
From now on tho gamo was nip and
tuck, being played mostly In tho middle of
tho Hold. A quarter kick was very success
fully tried by Thorpo, gaining Nebraska
tho ball and some ground. Shedd and Dun
gan worked n successful criss-cross for llf
teon yards. Wiggins and Shedd ench mado
long end runs.
Packard was started down tho Hold onco
for a touch down but tho crowd got In his
way and ho was brought down.
For Wesloyan, Van Duzor nnd Carvor
did somo nlco lino bucking nnd H. Fltohlo
punted well. Tho tackling of Gilbert and
Fltchlo stopped many Nobrnska advances.
Timo wiih called at 5:14, with tho ball
In Wesloynn's territory.
Tho crowd had been taking a moro or
loss Interested part In tho gamo all
through and now tholr time enmo In dead
earnest. It seems thoro had boon a mis
understanding botweon the manugors an
to who should have tho ball and so, when
tho playing wns dono, ench sldo claimed
it. Tho umpiro got It however and had
tho best of Intontlons of sottllng the mat
tor poaceably. But ho dld'nt. Tho crowd
pushed from ull sides and In tho scrlm
mago Nobrnska mon got tho ball By
somo adroit passing, It got out of tho
gate and Benedict, tho floot footed, sped
up N streot with it under his wing. Tho
crowd followed llko a stnmpeded hord of
cattlo, yellow and Drown mixed with scar
lot and cronm. The lattor was In tho maj.
orlty, howovor, and thoy wont on tho run
for tho university. On tho way tho ball
turned up missing, but so did tho univer
sity man, and as tho rest wont on with
tho smllo of conildonco, tho supposition
Is that Wesloyan will not kick that pig

Our boys rcallzo that winning a placo on
the Kansas-Nebraska debate Is no slight
honor, and It Is worthy of putting forth
their earnest efforts to do tho best thoy

but also warmly contested?
Professor Adams urges every student to
bo present nt theso debates and lend a.
helping hand In encouraging tho boys in
their efforts on the preliminaries. Tho

tion and they promlso to be on hand.
Tho debates begin next Monday even
