coaches selected to effect this result are
aot the products of a single school, but

- whose names are household words In the
foot ball world.
' Coach Kenney' Csrrer.
Coach Clarence Kenny began his foot
ball career at Marquette university, at that
time a college, under Jerry Riorden, the
" well-known guard of Wisconsin university.
He had Imbibed his knowledge of the game
from Phil King, who knew the tricks of
the old game In such wise that he made
. the eastern teams stand up and take notice.
His recent Instructor was Coach Eddie
. Cochems, who has guided the destiny of
i Hie St. Louis university team for the least
three years. This wizard of the game
found an apt scholar. In "Pike" Kcnney.
Many of his Intricate plays wheeled upon
'Tike" as their pivot, As these were not
- few In number, but were arranged to suc
. ceed each other in startling and apparently
; never ending rapidity. It speaks well for
' the foot ball genius of Dr. Kenney to have
been in them on the ground floor. In the
forward vass he took a prominent part,
acting as the receiver for the long passes
. of Schneider and Robinson.

W. J. Schneider, the associate coach at
Crelghton will divide the labors and honors
"with Dr. Kenney. Upon him will devolve
much of the hardest work of the season.
; Personally the two men are widely differ
ent. "Jack" Schneider has elevated him
self full three Inches above the alx-foot
" mark, while "Pike" Kenney, If built on
less skyscrsplng lines, boaata. of more
'breadth of beam. A recent press notice
' fays "Tall Jack Schneider will long be re
membered for his great plunging through
the line. He hardly ever failed to gain
the few necessary yards, when the other
'members of the team had failed and his
place . at fullback will be a hard one to
' fill." . He has had the enviable fortune of
playing on the Wisconsin university team,
'when Art Curtis, assisted by Eddie
Cochems dealt out the foot ball lore. Prior
to Uhls Coach Btagg of Chicago has de
veloped his athletic talent In track work.
When Cochems went to St. Louis to as
sume charge of athletics there Jack
Schneider followed, and for two years has
stood head and shoulde? over his team
mates as they romped down the fields for
goals. No line was able to withstand suc

The Importance of the forward pass haa

It has practically revolutionised foot ball.
Tet,ths difficulty experienced In ; hurling

method of handling the fi rward pass. At
least the pars ured In the west seems to be,
more successful than that employed In
the east, and so widely doe It differ from
Its eastern relative that It hardly belong
to the same family. It la cast to a single

St. Louis found Its best exponents of

OVAHA WINS WITH RHODES
Champions Ttke Last Game of the
AUSTIN AGAIN STARS AT BAT
GeteThree Hlto In Four Times lip
Visitors Throw Scare Into Home
Team la Seventh with
Omaha, 3; Pueblo. 3.
One csrtain Willie Rhodes was back
in form Saturday and he stopped the
onward rush of the Pueblos and the
downward slide of the Champions. His
little right arm was In flinging form and
he had his speed, with the result that for
half a dozen Innings It looked like a no
hit game. Hoggle made the first hit In
the sixth, but It did not count. Then Mr.
Rhodes seemed to tire a little,; and al
though he took a fresh piece of gum at'
the start of every Inning, the Omaha fans
were pn the anxious seat. Three hits were
made off his delivery and three runs
resulted, but that was all the scoring the
Pattersons could do, as Rhodsey tightened
up In the pinches, and the game was safe.
Galgano was twirling against the
Champs, but he turned out to be easy,
and Omaha had a lead of five before
Mr. Rhodes relaxed. The game had sev
eral bright features, the leading one of
which was the wonderful performance of
James Austin, which he simply continued
from the day befcre. He and Beldeh had
acquired a little team work which thy
were so stuck on that they tried It out
and then they tried it again. It consisted
of Austin making a hit and Beldcn sacri
ficing him on for a' base or two. Friday
Austin made four hits in four times up.
and on three of these occasions did Eel
den sacrifice him to second or third,
Jamea always taking two if there was
the slightest chance. Saturday James
made three hits In four times up, and on
two of these times Delden sacrificed him
along. That made; a record for Austin
of seven hits In seven times at bat. He
missed out on his last time up. If the
New York Highlanders had a man or two
two doing that for them this summer they
would not now be so comfortably ensconsed
In last place. Many Omaha fans think
Austin will be able to set the league on
fire next year, for he aurely has it In
Aostla Starts It OH.
Austin made the first run In the sec
ond inning by a hit Belden'a sacrifice,
Franck's fly and a passed ball. Rhodes
made the second hit himself In the third
inning, it being a corking three-bagger.
Mr. Mattlcka had to shag the ball to the
fence. Rhodes made a hit the first time
he cam to bat for Omaha two months
ago and has not made a' hit since. He
made that three-sarker above mentioned
and King drove him home with a single.
The game was nailed dowq in the fifth
inning, when Rhodes started the good
work again, this time by a base on balls.
Fisher did not do much but get out, but
King did a little better, aa he hit one to
8pencer, which that chap dropped. A
wild pitch advanced them a base, when
along cam Chicken Autrey. Chicken is
always willing to do what he can to help
along, so he just copped out a two
sacker that scored two. Welch fooilej
his attempt, but Austin drov a hard one
to left and Autrey trotted horn with the
third run of the Inning. That waa the
third hit for Austin of the day.
Eight men faced Mr. Rhodes In the
eventh Inning when the Patterson
made three runs. Mattlcks opened with
a single and stole second. Rhodes then
filled the base by passing Clark and
Miller. Corhan scored two of them by
Creighton's Foot Ball Coach and
.J' xf a
DR. CLARENCE KENNET.
a hit toward Welch, but a couple of good
throws nailed Miller at third. Mltie flew
out and Galgano walked.- Quite careless
of Rhodes to walk Oalgano. The battle
scarred veteran, Hoggle, then stepped to
the plate and put one out of Belden's
reach for two sacks, scoring Corhan, but
leaving Oalgano on third. Spencer
grounded one to Franck and the inning

an Omaha boy and former Bellevue stsr,
played a remarkably fast game at end on

Omaha Gibi Approved.
The . scheduling of the Ames-Nebraska
game for Omaha November 7. while In
some cases causing a little disappointment
among the Uncoln follower of foot ball,
ha In general met with approval. Es
pecially haa the action been favorably re
ceived among. a majority of the university
atudants living in Lincoln. Each fall a
large number of the students like to make
a trip with ''varsity to some other city for
a game and every summer look forward to
taking such a trip. Until last year many
of them Were able to journey to Minneapo
lis. Omaha , and Lawrence or other cities,
but when th railroad refused to give rates
for the foot ball trips these student were
kept from going on the longer trip and
were keenly disappointed. About the 'only

the one to Omaha. The fare to th metrop
