NOT ALLOWED TO SCORE
Tho Tnrkio Team Not Ablo to Go
Through Nebraska's Line.
DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH TRICKS
Varsity Men Show Un Fairly Well Grounds In
Such a Shnpo as to Provonl Good
Playing Tho Details.
After wnltlng two dny8 for tho rnln
tn stop and tl groundB to dry up, tho
NebrnsUa-Tnrltlo gnmo wns played on
a muddy Hold last Monday afternoon,
aml resulted In a victory for Ne
braska by a Bcoro of 10 to 0. This was
tho first gamo plnyod on the homo
grounds this year and tho University
team sliowed up fairly well. How
ever, Conch Robinson would have been
bettor pleased If tho Bcoro rolled up
against Tnrkio hnd boon just twlco as
large. Hut tho fact that it was not
may be partially ascribed to the
muddy condition of tho KroundB and
also to the fact that only twenty-minute
halves were played.
The game wns hard fought through
out, but after tho first halt It was not
dllllcult to see Hint Nebraska would
win. During tho first hnlf Nebraska
was somewhat weak on defensive
work, while tho Tnrkio team contin
ually want through the line. In tho
second half, however, Nebraska took
a brace, and Tarklo had tho ball
scarcely any of tho time. A change
In tactics was also adopted with good
results. Instead of hitting Tarklo's
heavy line, end runs wero resorted to
anil largo gains wero made. Both
teams had great difficulty in getting
started on account of tho mud.
Schwartz's playhig at half back was
"o"f ft hifch 6'riKji'wKo fulowed- hi in
terference well, which, together with
his natural speed, was responsible for
the long runs which ho mndo. Shedd
played full back, a new position for
him, but ho filled it with credit.
Whenever a touchdown wnB needed ho
could always be relied upon to carry
the ball over the line. Herbert, the
new center, showed up well. Cowglll
played n good gamo at quarter, tilling
his position without a fumble.
Tnrkio played a plucky game, but
did not have a sufficient variety of
plays and tricks. They kept bucking
away at Nebraska's lino, and whilo in
the first hnlf these tactics seemed
likely to succeed, thoy availed them
nothing In tho latter half.
The management is deserving of
great credit for tho arrangements
which were made under such dllllcult
conditions. On account of tho rain it
was impossible to do any work on the
field till Monday morning, but the
posts were set, tho canvas fence put
up and the grandstand completed be
fore the game began.
Almoso 500 people saw tho gamo, and
they wero one of tho best behaved
crowds which ever attended a foot ball
game They kept back of tho wires
and gave tho plnyers plenty of room.
Before tho big gamo tho second Uni
versity eleven played the Lincoln High
School boys and wore defeated by a
score of G to 0.

During tho Intermission Robinson
took hlB men up to the north end of
tho field and proceeded to give them
some good advice. He told them to
stop bucking Tarklo's heavy line, but
to play around tho ends. He said tho
boys wero too slow in getting started
and they should play three times as
snappy. Ho concluded by telling tho
boys thnt If they did tho right thing
they would make three or four more
touchdowns. Tho result of Robby's
little talk was soon evident in Ne
braska's play In the second half, espe
cially as regards end plays.
In tho second half Cowglll kicked
off thirty ynrds and Finney brought
It back ten, being finely tackled by
Stringer. Tnrkio then advanced the
ball two yards. On the next play
Tarklo misunderstood tho signals nnd
left quarter back McKlm holding the
ball. In tho scrimmngo that followed
McKim, in endeavoring to pass tho
ball, throw It right Into Turner's ca
pacious hands, nnd thnt youth, al
though at first too surprised to run,
finally recovered his senses and
tripped lightly down tho field for u
touchdown. Again the rooters rooted,
hut the referee had blown his whistle
before Turner got possession of tho
bnll, which makes tho ball officially
down, although In reality It was not.
But Nebraska had her eyo on an
other touchdown nnd no referee's de
cision could prevent It. Williams
went around tho right end for fifteen
yards, Schwartz wont around tho other
end for twenty moro, and almost suc
ceeded In Jumping clear over tho last
man who blocked his path. As It wns,
ho was only caught by tha heels and
tho touchdown was delayed a few min
utes longer. Ton yards now lay be
tween Nebraska and tho coveted goal.
Shedd advanced tho ball four ynrds,
Schwartz threo and Shedd two moro.
Shedd then carried tho ball over tho
remaining six Inches afttr eight min
utes play. Shedd kicked goal. Score,
Nebraska 2. Tarklo 0.

THE FRESH-SOPH FIELD DAY
Two Men From Each Class for Each
Event to be Chosen.
THE ENTRIES ARE NW OPEN
Men aro Working Hard for Representation
Conlcsl Will bo Hold Noxl Friday on
The fres'jiii m-sophomorc class Hold
contest will bo held on the campus
Friday afternoon, October 2!). Tho
contest promises to bo n success In
Thoro will be In nil twolvo events,
of which five will bo track events con
sisting of 100 ynrds, 220 yards, U0
yards SS0 yardB and mile run. Tin
other events will be running high
Jump, running broad Jump, shot put,
hammor throw, pole vault, base ball
throw and foot bnll kick.
Each class will bo allowed to enter
two men In each event, and it will
hustle some of tho men to get to he a
representative of their class. In this
way each ovoiU Is filled with tho four
best mon of tho two classes.
Many or last year's men who were
represented In the lntnrcolleginto field
day contest will bo representatives ot
tho sophoinoro class. The freshmen
have men who, It Is said by those who
are acquainted with some of them per
sonally, hold recordB that aio better
than those made by University niuii
last year. One freshman, who is out'
training In the training class, is able!
to jump threo Inches higher than the'
University record. Thia means that!
tho sophs will have either to do better
or give the University record to the'
freshmen. It also means a better rec-
ord for tho University. Among those
who are training and will undoubtedly
enter the contest are: J. A. Kellogg,
J. F. Mills, Ray Warner, P. A. Pepoon,
C. J. Allen, C. L. Allen, B. M. Losele,
Benedict, Andrcson, Plllsbury Jewltt,
Watermann, Hill, Clinton, Swallow
and M. S. Moon. Others will undoubt
edly nppear in time to enter.
Entries of freshmen must bo handed '
in to their manager, Swallow. Tho
sophomores must hand In enterics to
Licbman. All contestants must be out
for practice four days preceding tho
contest. The athletic board have rec
ommended that an entrance fee bo
ennrged. This is thought to be the
easiest way of raising the expenses of
the meet and pay their share towards
tho expense of grading tho athletic
field. The contestants lmvo offered to
pay an entry fee and give the public
free admission. This was considered
by tho board, but it felt that It would
bo better to recommend a gate fee.
Dr. Hnstings hns been working very
hard on the men In training and or
ganizing the men for work. Tho men
have shown much interest in tho con
test, but fail to report their progress
In each class. Tho contest will bo a
success, but many of tho members of
the management have relied too much
on tho project to push Itself.
The nthletlcs or" the University for
tho coming year depend largely on
this first meet. Correspondence Is be
ing carried on with Doane college and
material will be taken largely from the
two classes for training. The two
classes will, it is expected, turn out
nnd support their representatives In
tho same way tho students support tho
foot ball team.
This year class foot ball games will
bo played under tho rules of tho Intor
class Athlotlc association, which aro
now in process of adoption. The Uni
versity has long folt the need of just
such an association, and tho prime
movers In tho matter are to be com
mended for tho efforts thoy have put
forth. Its constitution provides for a
president vice-president and a secre
tnry. Besides this thoro 1b to bo nn
athletic board, consisting of ono mom
bor from each class and tho president
of tho association, all elected by the
respective classes. Tho work of tho
board is tho most Important In that
it lins to do with scheduling games
and determining who has tho right to
play on tho various teams.
Next week and tho week after this
tho University will be treated to n now
artlclo of foot ball, a kind thnt will

It took much individual work by n
few to raise the present enthusiasm,
but tho prospects are that a good team

in quick, snappy playing rather than
weight. A schedule ot games will in

Little has been done by tho fresh
men In the way of a class team thus
far. The organization of a team lias
been delayed by tho lack of a mana
ger. As yet there has been no prac
tice, but as soon ns a manager is
elected tho freshmen hope to get in
running order. Although they aro late
in getting started, they promise to
make a hot fight for the class cham
pionship, as there Is plenty of good
material in tho freshmen class to mako
several teams if It Is only brought out.
