The game WUH grand foot ball.
There wiih less punting tliuii In any
l.reviotiH game. In fnet tliuro whs al
most no punting' at all. Line bucking
and end runs constituted the play.
The llrst half was nearly all Nobruu

tin- Denver goal line, once when Moor-.'
missed his tackle and onee by hard
line bucking. The crowd, which in a
mtleable fact, mipnortcd the Demerit-am
loyally. It did , however, to no
mall until the llrst half was nearly
over A fumble on the Denver forty
jnrd line gave Clay a chance. In a
hi'cond he was racing up the lluld. A
Nebniblni player made a dive from the
st niggling mass, but fell fully four

ii the goal posts, gasping, as ho fell
l.tlween them, "Ain't I ever going to
;-tt there?"
The play acted as a hope-giver lo
the Denver men. This stands took up
the Denver cries and the man threw
tui'insttlves Into the game with a spirit

to repeat the trick of throwing his Xi'i
jKunds on a player already down. In
fact, he bore a distressed look, as
though he had found something in his
part of the line that did not please
him. Kingsbury, 1'illsbury, Folnier,
lknedict and Erwin reaped the great
est honors for the visitors.

There whs a lot of warm talk along
the side lines over the decision. Thr
long list of close Denver contests had
not prepared the audience for the
closeness of yesterday's game. Fi -i

including a lot of Houlder people who
had come down to "root" for Xebras

on the field and give Clay and Pfout.:

straight up the field, the only change
being an occasional charge of the
