NEBRASKA, LOSES TO AMES.
(tamo Friday Finds Homo Team
Weak Condition Nebraska
Fails to Score.
The foot ball game with tho Agricul
tural college of Iowa at Ames last Fri
day resulted In a victory for the Hawk
eyes by the one-sided score of 33 to 0.
The score Is a good criterion to the
condition of the respective teams. Ames
has been in training for more than two
months and at this time is In the
height of her season, while the Ne
braska boys have scarcely started upon
their season's work.
Reports of the game are unanimous
in the fact that it Is entirely too early
in the season for the Nebraska team to
think of playing Ames. This has been
clearly seen in former years.
The Omaha Bee contained the follow
ing of the game under the dear of a
special telegram. The account shows
slightly in favor of Ames, but is a rea
sonably fair statement:
Ames, la.. Oct 6. (Special Tele
gram.) The foot ball game played
here today between the Nebraska uni
versity and the Iowa state college re
sulted in a score of 34 to 0 in favor of
Ames college, with halves of twenty
minutes. Nebraska kicked off to Ames'
twenty-yard line and in exactly one
minute and a half the Ames team made
a touchdown. The goal was easily kick
ed, and in five minutes alccer Nebraska
had kicked off the second time Ames
"hail made another touckiown and
goal. The Ames team seemed to have
no trouble at all to make gains from
ten to fifty yards. Nebraska's center
was very weak on passing the ball,
causing such an exhibition of fumbling
at quarter as is rarely seen in teams
of Nebraska's class. Nebraska's big
gest gain during the whole game was
only fifteen yards, and then the ball
was lost on a fumble. The Ames team
was strong on defensive and Nebraska
was forced to punt often in order to
make any gains. At the end of the first
half the score stood 29 to 0 in favor of
Ames. The westerners rallied a little
in the second half and held the agricul
turists down to one touchdown. The
Une-up was as follows:
Drain L. E Smith
Brew L. T Tarr
Koehler L. G Chambers
Tyson C Owen
Ringer R. G Byl
Pearse R. T Eckles
Cortelyou R. E Griffith
Crandall Q. B Walker
Williams L. H Leclerc
Benedict R. H Roberts

No blame can be attached to coach or
management for this defeat The men
played well in the second half and
showed the material out of which they
were made. It is evident that develop
ment, and a great deal of it, will be
necessary, but the defeat will do no
more than to ctir the men on the
doubled efforts. Two years ago Ne
braska was shut out in the same way
at Ames and after the return home was
not scored against during the remaind
er of the season, although Kansas, Mis
souri and Iowa were all met
United effort on the part of the stu
dents and hearty support of the team,
coach and manager will bring about
such a change before the game with
the Kansas City medics Saturday that
a possibility of winning becomes al
most a certainty.
The annual freshman-sophomore field
meet, held on the campus last Satur
day, resulted in a victory for the fresh
men. The weather was good, but the
poor condition of the grounds prevent
ed any record breaking.
For the freshmen Mouck and John
son were in good form and won uost
of their events Mantz for the sopho
mores maintained his reputattion as a
long distance runner by winning four
firsts in his class. McComb, who won
the short distance events in '9G, did
some good work, althoug1 not in condi

bell. The appointment of corporals is tem

tion according to the ability shown by
the squad instructors. The promotions
for the band will be announced on

The companies will be quite large

three hundred and fifty have already
urday morning General Manager
Adams of Kansas arrived in this city
to discuss tho matter with the board.
A meeting was called and Mr. Adams
was given a hearing tho same morning.
Mr. Adams stated tho grounds that
the Kansas board took for tho action
and asked that the board here to de
cide to play a game at Lawrence No
vember 4. This would have been in di
rect opposition with tho arrangements
made at the board meeting in this city
last April, and coming as the date does,
JuBt two weeks before tho regular
league game in this city, it would ma
terially decrease the attendance at tho
game here and would otherwiso injure
the situation. For this reason tho Ne
braska board stood firm in their de
cision. Mr. Adams was given a state
ment to the Kansas board that out
lined tho position of Nebraska and
stated the reason why a game would be
out of the question.
At the time of the league meeting
Nebraska cancelled the Thanksgiving
game with Iowa at tho request of Kan
sas, and this second request looked to
the board too much like a case of bull
dozing, consequently the decision.
Since the trouble with Kansas has
been in progress correspondence has
been carried on with Iowa to arrange a
date for a game. A letter was received
from the manager of that team Satur
day, stating that they would meet Ne
braska November 4 either in Council
Bluffs or Omaha, whichever offered the
best guarantee. This offer will be ac
cepted. Effort is also being mado to
arrange a iT-jJue with Northwestern
and three or four other institutions far
ther east It will be possible to ar
range a Thanksgiving game with
Drake, but since the recent troubles
that this team has had with the Iowa
league it is deemed best to make haste
slowly in regard to the matter.
BOARD TAKES ACTION.
At a meeting of the athletic board
I last week it was decided to notify Kan
sas that no return game would be play
ed with them at Lawrence, in spite of
their insistence that this be done. Sat-

ABOUT "CORN TASSELS."
When the first edition of this moat
popular book appeared one of the com
unents that was made upon it was the
following by Carl Smith, the well
known critic. The criticism appeared
In the Chicago Record, together with
several of the poems from the volume.
Mr. Smith said:
"His book is called "Corn Tassels."
for it Is of the westland in prime and
chelf. It tells of prairies and sod
houses and desolation and aspiration
and ether things that are mixed with
life of the home reader. But while
youth Impels the author to write pessi
mistically sometimes, a wholesome life
and an honest heart cause him to see a
great deal of good in his sand-hill
world. His little book is a sort of
hopeful edition of Hamlin Garland."
A few days ago the Omaha Dally Bee
contained the following comment con
cerning the edition that Is about to ap
pear: "A new edition of "Corn Tassels,"
the book of Nebraska verse, by William
Reed Dunroy, will be out in about a
month. The first edition of this book
was received with much favor In this
and other states and won for the au
thor some very flattering reviews from
