goal line, but lost it on four downs. Score,
Nebraska 4; Denver 0.
Denver took the ball and scored a touch
down in a few minutes. Field missed goal.
Much as the Rocky gentlemen deserved
their name in the first half, in the second
half they outdid themselves. Macon, a
prize fighter of the bowery kind, commenced
the slugging. This was the beginning of
sorrows. Field slugged everyone within his
reach; Frease slugged; Filmore slugged
Flippin; Adams slugged Pace. Flippin and
Yont looked about seeking whom they
might devour. Flippin chewed Macon all
up and laid the Denver men in little heaps.
Everybody slugged. When any two of the
spectators disagreed as to a point they left
their seats and went down by the ropes and
blacked each other eyes. Score: Denver 4,
Nebraska 4. Umpire gave the game to
The Game We Lost.
Our first league game, played with Mis
souri at Kansas City last Saturday, was a
great surprise to the crowd of anxious stu
dents who had gathered in university hall
Saturday evening. The telegram stating
that the score wan J.0 to 18 in Missouri's
favor caused a hundred happy faces to
change from an expression of joyful antici
pation to one of doleful woe. The Nebraska
team which had tied Baker and Denver in
succession, had allowed itself to be defeated
by the Missourians.
The team was delayed in reuching Kansas
City by a wrec'k near Podonia. They did
not arrive till 5:00 a. m. and were all
fagged out by their wuit of eight hours,
during which time they should have been
dreaming of victory.
The Missouri team arrived early on Fri
day evening so wojo in perfect condition for
the game Saturday.
Missouri's team was much lighter than
ours but, as the outcome showed, more than
made up for their lack of weight by their
activity. During the first half our boys
held their own and played a splendid game.
The first touch down was made by Nebraska
in ten minutes. Missouri followed with the
second in just thirty minutes. Before time
was called for the first half each team made
another touch down. Score 12 to 12.
At this stage of the game the effects of
the previous night's hard travel began to
show on Nebraska. Although we had the
weight and power, we were unable to use it
to good advantage. Missouri elated by her
unexpected success in the first half, went at
our line with redoubled vigor, but could not
prevent us from scoring another touch down.
The rememberancc of past defeats urged
Missouri on to desperation and she succeded
in making two more touch downs before the
game was called, the score being Nebraska
18, Missouri 30.
On the whole the boys played a good
game. Had it not been for their fagged out
condition, the score would undoubtedly
have been reversed, with a much greater
majority in our favor.
Some contributions competing for our
prize offered in last month's Hesperian

one who can and wishes to, will take this
opportunity to do serious work in composi
tion. The article must bo more than two
thousand and less than twenty-five hundred
words in length, and must be handed or
mailed to the managing editor on or before

submitted to three judges chosen from the
faculty of the University. The author of
the best production will bo awarded five
dollars, and the article will be published in
the Christmas number off, the Hespeiuan.
All the articles must be otva uarrativo style.
From such a large number of students we
have a right to expect some excellent pro
ductions, and wo want to publish in our
holiday number a first-class story that would
be a credit to any magazine in the country.
Anyone who is a student of the University
may compete for the prize, the editors of
the two college papers excepted. Wo wish
it understood that the prize -will be paid, and
paid before the publication of the story.
