LINCOLN. Bept. M. (Special Telegram. )
On a muddy field, which made fait playing
or rapid coring Impossible, Nebraska euc
eeded In defeating the Peru Normal achool
by a cor of SO to 0 at Antelope park thin
afternoon In the opening game of the sea
on. The Cornhuskers aecured fifteen of their
points In the first half on three touch
downs, and inanged to get another touch
down In the seoond half, which Captain
Harrey failed to convert Into a goal. The
time of the halves were twenty and fifteen
Nebraska played straight foot ball most
f the time, only on three plays resorting
to the forward pass, and Infrequently try-
I lng either the on Aide kick or end runs.
Nearly all of the gaina were made on playa
01 recited against the Peru line, which man
aged to hold the Cornhuskers for downs
only twice, and those occasions being near
i the lose of the second half, when several
tf the Nebraska regulars had been re
placed by substitutes.
The work of the Cornhuskers failed to
coma vp to expectations and tonight the
rooters are feeling rather disappointed over
the showing of their team. Although the
condition of the field and the drizzling
rain prevented any speotaeular playing, yet
the Nebraska elesren failed to do the work
that had been expected of them under
even rush conditions. Only occasionally
did any of the veterans show brilliant form.
It was not Peru's strength, but rather the
listless and slow playing of the Cornhuakera
which kept down the soore on the Ne
braska alda The Cornhuskers had little
trouble In diagnosing the defense of the
Normala and made gains at will through
the line and around the ends. But the Ne
braska eleven got their plays off with
slowness that characterized their play at
limes last season.
On the defense the Cornhuskers were Im
pregnable to the Peru team. The Normals
fid not make their downa onoe on their
own playa. They bad possession of the ball
only a few times during the game and
was forced to punt In every instance.
Oaaata Starts In Rata.
Ths game was started In a downpour of
rain and with the players shivering on the
field. The rain stopped after play had been
on a few minutes. Nearly SCO of the faith
ful rooters Journeyed out to the park to
witness the Cornhuskers workout and they
tiuddlod together in the grandstand at the
West end of the field, where they were un
able to get a good view of what the teams
Were doing. The mud kept the Cornhuskers
from showing what they had accomplished
In the kicking department. Beltser did the
punting for them, but none of his - kicks
went over thirty yards. In this Una Stew
art for the Normals excelled. He made two
or three punts of forty-five yards. Two
trials at goal from. placement were flat fail
ures. The ball neither time went as high
as the cross bar. No drop kicks were at
tempted. Beltser, at left half, nnd Kroger, at full
back, were the stars for Nebraska. They
were given the ball to carry repeatedly
and nearly every time made good gains.
Ttathbone was tried out at quarter and ran
the team fairly well, although the playa
were gotten off slowly. Arnold, a new man,
was tried out at high half and proved to be
hard Una hlttetv
Nebraska sent in several substitutes In
the second half. - and they were able to
ret only one touchdown. Peru, toward
the oloee of this half, showed a' spurt of
speed, and during1 the laat two minutes of
play, oa two kicks carried the ball to Ne
braska's tbtrty-flve yard line, where It
was when the game was called.
Bwansan. the Peru center, put up a hard
gnLme. and helped his team keep down
the Nebraska score. His tackling of Har
vey tn the flrat half, when the captain
bad secured the ball on a forward pasi
and waa running for the goal with a clear
field, robbed tha Cornhuakera of that
touchdown. Renfrowa, quarter for Peru,
also waa good st tackling and often brought
own a Nebraska runner.
Nebraska showed a weakneas at quarter,
which the return of Cooke la expected to
do away with. The little midget quarter
back of the laat two aeaaons came back
to Lincoln today and reported to "King"
Cole that he would be ready to put on the
(nolo skins Monday afternoon.

Una Beltser returned the ball twenty
yards, being downed by Lincoln, right
tackle, a Kroger made fire yarda through
left tackle. Kroger made another gain
through tackle. An attempt through ten
ter by Beltser failed. Kroger carried the
ball again, making Nebraska's second
downs. Tbs Cornhuskers' full bark was
sent through hlght tsckle for ten yarda
mora, Beltser, in a run around right end
mad five yards. Kroger and Beltser car
ried the ball to Peru's ten yard line on re
peated plunges through tackle and guard
and Kroger was sent over for the first
touchdown of the season. Harvey kicked
out from behind the goal line and Retb
bona failed to catch the hall. Score. Ne
breaks, S; Peru. 0.
Peru again ohoao to kick off and Rath-
bone returned the ball thirty yarda from
Nebraska's twenty-yard line. Krogr and
Arnold, light half, were used several times
and carried the ball through tackle and
guard to Peru'a forty-yard line. A fo.-ward
pass from Rathbone to Captain Harvey
gained twenty-five vards. On the next play
Arnold fumbled end it waa Peru'a ball. On
two attempts to go through the line the
Nurmala failed to gain and were forced to
kick. Rathbone secured the ball and re

NEW YORK, Sept. 26.-Steadied by
Mathewson's strong right arm, the New
York team today-atoned In part for yes
terday's double-header defeat by landing a
double-header victory from Cincinnati, the
scores being 8 to 2 and 3 to 1. The 32,000
spectators who had followed the plays with
great enthusiasm left the field at the close
convinced that New York can get the pen
nant,' for the complete reversal of lta unat
tractive form of yesterday seemed to Indi
cate that Manager McGraw was right when
he expressed the opinion this forenoon that
the aetback resulting from putting in the
box the new Invoice of pitchers would be
- But Chicago's duplication of its double
victory with Brooklyn means that New
York must put up highest grade ball In the
remaining eleven gamea It has to play. Chi
cago has but six gamea more to play before
the end of the aeason.
. Mathewson'a pitching was the feature of
the first game. There was never any doubt
what the result would be. In the second

AB. R. H.
On a met, soggy field st Vlntou
Street park, before a - moderat but
enthusiastic, crowd, the first fame of the.
season for the Omaha Hlgli school foot
ball eleven was played with' Plsttsmouth
Saturday afternoon and resulted In a vic
tory for Omaha by the score cf 21 to 0. The
Plsttsmouth team composed rf High ftcheol
boys snd other young men from that city,'
was outweighed and outplayed but fought
with considerable spirit and ability against
great odds. The game waa Clean and the
only dispute waa settled before anyone on
the sidelines knew that It had arisen.
Coach Cherrlr.gton of Omaha was well
pleased with the result of the first practice
game and Is certain now of developing a
fast Xeam for Its weight.' which . will be
about 160 pounds. Andms, McKinney snd one
or two others sre good material for stars
and all that Is necessary now to give the
playing finish- and scoring form Is practice
and the development of team 'work. The
men of the first team which opened the
game were well together on ' most of the
plsys but the coach substituted In every
position several times and the men during
the second half were unfamiliar with the
signals for their places. ,
First Team Invincible. .
Plattsmouth could do little against the
first , team but by. the latter part of tiio
second half the men were beginning to take
the measure of their opponents and the ball
died on Omaha's twenty-yard line, . whllti
Plsttsmouth was taking It steadily down
the field by straight line bucks. Real, the
quarterback of the -visiting team 'plsyeo1 a
fast game and his men backed him up in
every play. The Plattsmouth right end,
Droege, was playing his first game 'of foot
ball, but he showed a remarkable quickness
in picking up the tricks of the position;,
Omaha won the toss and took the east
goal. McKinney kicked- off mid Platti.
mouth advanced the1 ball abcut twenty
yards. ' Omaha was penalized for the of.'
slde ' play and Gardner kicked forty'-fivt
yards. He followed this " after a rcurn
with another boot for twenty-five yards and
McKinney got the ball on a fumble. Om
aha lost the ball again but Plattsmouth
could gain only short distances. Andrus
made several star tackles. McKinney car

NEW HAVEN, Conn., Bept. 26 The an
nouncement that Arthur Edward Brides,
one of the beat all around foot ball players
at Yale, Is married in no news to the Ysle
foot ball coaches. They were Informed of
It last winter, and that was the reaaon he
was not elected captain of the' Tale foot
ball eleven for the 1S08 season. They
feared that Brides might not be able to
devote his tims entirely to the team snd
chose Burch, - who. had 'played but tno
minutes in a championship gsme, in his
Brides was easily tha logical candidate
for the captaincy. He had played two
years at half back and at guard, and was
squally brilliant in both places. Jt was not
long after Brides' marriage in July a year
ago that the foot ball coaches learned of
the fact. There Is no rule sgalnst a mar
ried man playing on a Yale athletic team.
Consequently there is no reaaon why
brldea should not return to Tale this fall
and play foot ball. If he wanta to do so.
He Is a senior In the Yale medical school.
