TARKIO MEETS DEFEAT.
Nebraska "Shows" the Men From Missouri Score is
24 to O Good Game in the Second Half.
Another good day, though a trifle windy during part of the
game, brought out a fair crowd Saturday to the bleachers and
aide lines, to say nothing of the second and third story win.
dows in University hall, to see the University team again
demonstrate its ability on the grid-iron. The Tarkio boys
brought with them a good reputation oarned last year, and
had they received longer and more careful training, the score
might have been difforont. Two of the touchdowns wore
secured on flukes, and the earned score was really 12 0.
Superior weight and training would undoubtedly have won a
victory for the home team in any ovont, but the victory, as it
is, is one not to be despised. Tho teams lined up as follows:
TAltKlO. I'OS. NKUUASKA.

Porter L. G Gilbert
Easton H. T Kingsbury
Balraer L. T.. . ., Pillsbury

Nebraska was again fortunate in winning tho toss, and choso
tho south goal, with tho wind in their favor. Both Cowgill
and Erwin distinguished themsulvcs in punting, gaining from
five to fiftoon yards on every oxchamm of kicks. It took but
few minutes for Nebraska to scoro her first touchdown by a
series of lino bucks by Benedict, Erwin and Kingsbury, tho
last of whom carried the ball across. Molford kickod goal.
Cowgill mado the long kick of the day in returning Tarkio's
kick off, notting a good twenty yards for Nebraska. Tho
Tarkio man fumbled the catch and Kingsbury fell on tho ball.
In just two minutes' play Erwin had been shoved across for the
second touchdown. Molford kicked goal. Scoro 12- -0.
It was now fearod that tho gamo would prove to bo a rope,
tition of the Ilastiugs affair. Cowgill mado a good gain be
fore downed by Tarkio at tho kiokoff. Thon followed a
series of lino smashes, that carried tho ball steadily toward the
enemy's goal. First Williams would carry tho ball for four

yards, followed by Kingsbury who would hit the li"ne for six or
eight yards more; then Pillsbury and Erwin would advance it
six to eight yards each, followed by Turner with his proverbial
tivo yards. Erwin at last ended tho matter by scoring the
third down goal was kicked. Scoro 18 0.
Tarkio braced up now, and began to have some effect on the
line, advancing tho ball about fifteen yards; when, on a third
down, Brew broke through and tackled their man behind tho
line. Nebraska secured the ball. Williams made the only
end run of the gamo made by Nebraska for fifteen yards; but
Tarkio broke through on the next down with a loss to Nebraska
sufficient to force Cowgill to make a quarter kick. Tarkio was
now holding tho lino well and Nebraska again punted.
After a moment's moro play time was called.
Luck did not favor tho Tarkio boys, for tho wind that had
aided Cowgill in punting, had now gone down, as the sides
changed goals. Nebraska kicked off and Tarkio soon demon
strated that the second half was not to bo a repetition of tho
first. Waugh and Gibson, their halvoB, hit tho Nebraska lino
and end with tolling effect. Easton mado a fino end run for
fifteen yards around tho right end. It looked as though they
might continue their advance and score. An off side play by
Nebraska gave them fivo yards moro. But hero Nobraska
called a halt on their progress, secured the ball and started it
in tho opposite direction. It was boing stoadily advanced into
Tarkio's territory when a foul lost Nobraska the ball. Tarkio
was hold and forced to kick, but failed to kick out of danger.
Tho ball was again workod back by Nobraska, and Tumor
pushed across for touchdown. Molford kickod goal. Scoro
Nobraska advanced tho ball past tho contor in Tarkio's ter
ritory boforo they wore hold, and tho ball passod to Tarkio.
Gibson mado a neat gain of fivo yards for Tarkio, Iloro Ran
kin took Easton's placo in Tarkio's lino, and thoy rosumod play
by gaining fivo yards moro. Time was now short, and as a
last olfort thoy attempted a trick play but failed. Timo was
called, and tho scoro was 24 to 0, in Nobraska's favor.
L Gibson caused considerable tioublo for our boys, too.
