IOWA CITT. Ia., Oct. l.-(Speclal Tele
gram.) Nebraska, with every man on the
team battling furiously from the opening
of the first half until the referee's whistle
blew . announcing the clone of the game,
defeated Iowa In the hardest fought game
plRyed on Iowa field since the Cornhuskers
were here In IMS. The acore today waa
II to . Nebraska made all Ita point on
two touchdowns, one coming In the first
half on straight foot ball, ' when Kroger
waa ahoved over from the one-yard lino
and the other Boon after the opening of the
rewind haJf, Harvey catching , a forward
piws on Iowa's twenty-five-yard line and
crossing' the Hawkeys goal line. Btrkner
failed to kick goal on the second touch
down. Iowa made Its eight points on two
drop kicks, one by Kirk In the first half
and the other by Hyland In the second half.
The game was the greatest exhibition of
modern foot ball ever seen' on Iowa field.
Nebraska and Iowa both used plays
adapted to the new rules, but the Corn
huskers were more skillful with all their
plays than the Hawkeyes. Nebraska em
ployed the on-slde kick several times, and
gained ground on both of these plays. The
forward pass was used many times and
resulted In good galna In a greater ma
jority of the attempts. While the Corn-
buskers outplayed their opponents In both
Ives, at the opening of the Initial half
Jw displayed flashes of brilliancy which
,i firat gladdened the hearts of the Hawk
eyes, but Coach Catlln'. pupils were not
ble to keep up their gait, and after the
fh-st five minutes of paly were swept off
their, feet by the husky players from Ne
braska. laws Scores.
In the first five minutes of play, Captain
Kirk, star halfback on the Iowa team,
made a drop-kick from Nebraska's twenty
ftve v.rri tin. Thi. i a t .....

' Sr' The CornhukTs, Instead of being
. w.i.uia,m ay Dring scorea against, were
38mtr.-ed on and rushed the Hawkeyes off
their feet for the remaining thirty minutes
of the firat half.
.On the klckoff, following the scoring by
Kirk, Nebraska braced In the greatest kind
of fashion, and on several plays carried the
bail down the flld Into low territory,
where Coach Catlin's much prided defense
was not able to withstand the onslaughts
of-; the Cornhuskers, and gave way to a
tralght-llne buck for a touchdown. After
, securing this touchdown Nebraska still
i played hard ball, and only for a fumble
'"i might hare made a second one.
. Kirk, who had been depended on by
da" lows; rooters to win the game, failed
miserably In his kicking after making the
first drop-kick In the opening five minutes
of play. " He tried several goals in the
first half, and In the first twenty minutes
of. the second half, but missed them all.
He was Injured about the middle of the
second half and was taken from the game.
Hyland. who did the drop-picking after
Kirk retired, tried four drop-kicks, making
one of them. In the last four minutes of
; play he tried one from Nebraska's twenty
' five yard line that would have won the
l game had It been successful. At this time
the Hawkeys rooters were hoping that he
i would kick the goal. Hyland was nervous.
, however, and the ball swerved to the right
i and missed the goal by several feet
Nebraska's Play Brilliant.
I Nebraska played a brilliant game both
on the offensive and defensive. The Corn
huskers' line from tackle to tackle held
i fully as well as It did at Minnesota two
' weeks ago, and Iowa was unable to pierce
! 1t for any considerable gains, this Inability
to gain against the Nebraska line forced
the Hawkeyes to repeatedly kick and at-
,tpt open style plays. These on several
occasions worked and resulted in tneir
getting the ball near enough to the Corn-
huskers' goal to try a drop kick.
The element of luck entered Into Iowa's
ncces. with the modern plays to a great
extent. Fumbles by Nebraska In the open-
I Ing half gave them this advantage for drop
M k,c,t"- Tne 'allure to recover the ball on
J', punts, too, by Nebraska also helped the
V The Cornhuskers fought an uphill game
' throughout the entire seventy minutes of
actual play. Chaloupka at right tackle was
a marvel. He carried the ball repeatedly In
both halvea for great advances through the
line. He plowed through both tackles time
after time and the Iowa deefnae was bat
' tered down unt'.I on several occasions It
, seemed that nothing could stop Nebraska
from Increasing Ita score by several points.
Offside play at critical points cost Ne
braska majiy yarda and probably one or
two touchdowns. Miner, who was substi
tuted for Kroger In the second half, did
some sensational running wtlh the ball.
On four occasions he carried it for long
gains. Two of these were for over twenty
five yanla. One gave Nebraska forty yards.
He dodged like a veteran going through
Iowa's line and evading clever tacklers.
Barkneld's Great Work.
Nebraska's back fluid proved a powerful
worker against Iowa's line. During tho
optnlrtg half, with Beltser, Kroger, Btrkner
and IK-in ley playing the four back field
positions, It did the most wondi'rful work
of the season. Btrkner, Beltser and Kroger
all hit the line hard and carried the ball
tor many long gains. Their charging waa
sersattonal at times. Bentley. who played
;' his first big game, held down the quarter
la back position Ilka a veteran. After th
V first five minutes of play he settled down
o hard work and ran the plays off without
balk. Ita also made ground when r.arry-
g the ball. Kroger left the game early

The steady and hard playing of Johnson

,Iowi from advancli far with the ball on

Iowa Wears Itself Oat.
The Cornhuskers worked so fiercely that
the Hawkeyes were soon worn out. and had
to drop the straight line plays. During the
closing five minutes of the last half Cha
loupka was severely hurt by having his
neck twisted and was forced to retire.
Bowers went In as substitute, playing
at guard, while Harte was shifted to tacklo.
Kirk. Hyland and Gross played star ball
for Iowa. The sensational tackling of
Gross was a feature of the game. Kirk,
while he lasted, worked hard and returned
balls with great speed. He punted the ball
forty and fifty yards. The last fifteen
minutes of play were of the most grueling
sort. Nebraska, with the game won, had
to fight to Its utmost In order to keep the
score In its favor. Iowa was desperate and
strove with fierceness to overcome the lead
of the Cornhuskers. Players were laid out
on both sides. Nebraska tackled the Hawk
eyes with a sureness that wore out their
opponents. Iowa after a brilliant showing
on the offense for ten minutes in the middle
of the last half exhausted Itself and Ne
braska, still playing with vigor, began to
advance the ball toward the Hawkeye goal,
when time was called with Nebraska in
possession of the ball on Iowa's fifty-yard
"King" Cole's men came out of the game
considerably bruised up, but determined to
get into shape for Ames. Tonight they are
all waiting for a train to take them back
to Lincoln, and rejoicing over the hard
earned victory. Iowa students had planned
a big celebration for this evening, expecting
that the Hawkeyes would win, but there is
no celebrating here. Everything Is as quiet
as on a common occasion. The Iowa city
la filled with hundreds of visitors, Iowa
alumni and others who came to see the
game. They began to pile Into the town
early this morning before the Inhabitants
were up and by noon the streets were lined
with people anvlous for the contest to start.
The Cornhuskers, led by "King" Cole and
Manager Eager, arrived In the city from
Cedar Rapids at 10:30 this morning over the
trolley line. A curious crowd met them at
the station and followed them to the hotel,
where they were admired until the coach
took them off to the grill and sleeping
room. The Nebraska team was taken to
the gymnasium at S o'clock, where they
dressed. At that time the seats on Iowa
field were well filled.

At 2:30 p. m. ,50 people were in the

tricky aggregation and were not .afraid
to use their trick plays.
The teams were, of different build al
thoug the weight seemed to slightly favor
Denver. The Mountaineers linemen were
long and rangy and fast, while the
Creighton line seemed much more stocky.
But once was Creighton able to gain the
required distance to make a first down
and that was a sort of a fluke on a de
layed pass. Denver made two field goals
1 nthe first half, the firat after fourteen
minutes -of play making the score 8 to 0
at the end of the first half. In the second
half they played harder and faster and
Creighton at the same time seemed to
lose the necessary nerve to keep the pace
and Denver trotted up and down the field
at will, making long runs and forward
passes and when necessary kicking the ball
for good punts, Creighton being unable to
stop the cyclone.
The style of interference which the Den
ver lads put up around the endsh seemed
to puzzle Creighton and often 26 and 30
yard runs resulted. When Skldmore would
start around the end he would have at
least five men to Interfere for him and the
Creighton ends and tackles did not seem to
be able to break up the play. They made
the mistake of all trying to get the runner
Instead of breaking up the Interference.
Around the ends was not the only place
Denver went, for gains for Schraeder as a
plunging fullback Is a corker "and when
several yards were needed on a pinch he
was simply sent plowing through the line
and Invariably made good. aFllure to call
upon him In the first half with the ball
near the goal line cost Denver a touch
down, but It was practically mado up for
a moment later, when Captain Brusse
kicked a goal from placement for forty-six-yards.
Creighton had kicked the ball
fro mlts three-yard line and Brusse made a
fair catch and heeled the ball. He then
sent It soaring squarely between the goal
posts for the second field goal of the game.
When Coach Kenney In the second half
saw the game was Irredeemably lost he
called upon his pony backs and several
other line men, but the new blood was not
able to stop the rushes of the Grizzlies. Dr.
Koehler did not call upon any of his sub
stitute, until there wa. but ten minutes

recall, when he relieved the members or Ms

work. Things were getting a Utile rough
and he desired to save his men for the
big game with the Colorado Schol of Mines
Creighton Wa. Powerless.
Tha, stocky Creighton team, the same
lineup which had won 'from the strong
Grtnnell team two weeks before, seemed to
be toys 1 nthe hands of the Mountaineers,
It was the consensus of oolnion amornr th
iuui umi roomers mat uenver nas a re
markable Nteam with a backfield such as
has seldom been seen on a western gridiron.
This bunch of backs, however, had great
support from the line men, so that when a
straight plunge was called for. there was
almost Invariably a hole and when the
backs weer sent around the ends they had
heavy linesmen to Interfere for them.
Denver won the toss and chose to kick
the ball, giving Creighton the north goal,
with the wind blowing almost from the east.
Schraeder kicked out of bound, on the first
attempt, but his second went better and
the game was on. Stevens made a return of
ten yards and then lost three on an at -
tempt at the end. Creighton kicked forty
yarda and Skldmore was downed In his

Anxious to win the lone conference game
on its schedule, the Iowa eleven will strain
every nerve this week to get into condition
for the Illinois game at Champion next
Saturday. Crippled, with Captain Kirk,
Hastings, Stewart, Perrlne snd Collins In
poor condition, the Old Gold will labor un
dere severe handicaps, but with the mem
ory of last year's brilliant victory over the
Illinois, Catlln expects his pupils will work
to the limit to perfect the complicated for
ward pass offense which proved so ef
fectual In the second half of the Illinois
game last year.
The coaches have Impressed the men with
the necessity of the hardest sort of prac
tice this week. Assistant Coach Griffith
came back from Chicago after the Chicago
Illinois game, and his lectures at the
nightly chalk talks did not tend to develop
overconfldence. He told of the clever for
ward passing of little Blnnock, and the
mighty defensive play of Captain Van
Hook at "open center."
Anxiety over the Nebraska game caused
the coaches to develop the men as much
as possible this last week, but Catlln will
not abate the pace this week trusting that
the men can stand the strain. With en
durance capable of a hard week's grind
after the gruelling Nebraska game today
they will greatly develop the pet plays of
the Hawkeye coach, including the "angle
play" formations which have so far never
failed to fool the opposing line.
Iowa students look forward to the Illi
nois game as the big contest of the sea
son, ranking firat In Importance as tt will
show the standing of the lowas In the
"big eight." A large delegation Is planning
to accompany the team and a party of
undergraduates have arranged for a special
car to make the trip.

are the stars of the team and their loss
may prove Irreparable unless the miracle
happens of the discovery of three men of
as good class during the practice of early
spring. None of the men against whom
charges have been made will say anything
until their formal arraignment before the
faculty, and their friends are confident that
the charges will prove without foundation.
As for the charges against men In other
colleges, all are based on reported connec
tion of these men with base ball teams at
summer resorts, which were practically
hired by the hotels, and If all are true It
will mean a general slump In the form of
many of tho Pennsylvania institutions.

INTERCOLLEGIATE BASKET BALL
Mlssonrl and Nebraska Expected to
Join Eastern Colleges.
NEW YORK. Oct. 31. - Although the
Eastern Intercollegiate Basket Ball asso
ciation has gone out of existence for i
year at least, the conference colleges have
grouped together to play a regular sched
ule of games. It Is expected that Missouri
and Nebraaka will Join with Chicago, Wis
consin, Minnesota, Illinois and Purdue In
forming this schedule. The fact that Chi
cago won the national Intercollegiate title
from Pennsylvania last March has helped
to boom the game greatly In the west,
Meantime a rather wiser control has pre
vented the game from getting Into such a
condition as In this section, where It was
thought wiser to abandon it for a tlmo.

Farrell, however, says he has not signed
Btalllngs as manager for the Highlanders
and does not know himself who will handle
the team next season. The one best bet Is
that Btalllngs will vin.

FIELD GOAL WINS THE CAME
Bellevns Wins Close Contest from the
Boys from Hastings.
GRIDIRON - BATTLE WAS FAST
Although Kxeelllngr In Some Branches
of the Game, Hastings Loses
hr One Goal from
Bellevue college. 4; Hastings college, 0.
Outplayed In the first half and their goal
In constant danger. Bellevue came back
at the opening of the second half yester
day, and, sweeping Its opponents off their
feet, won the game then and there. The
actual score was from a well directed drop
kick booted high over the bars by Pearson.
He drove It from the fifteen-yard line, but
It had steam enough to have carried from
the thirty-yard line.
It could be argued with some plausibility
that Hastings ought to have won, and as
a matter of fact that eleven did gain con
siderable more ground than Bellevue.
Moreover, the visitors' long Journey and
the fierce pace Bet In the first half un
doubtedly told on them as the game pro
gressed. On the other hand, the kicking
of Pearson In the first half and the de
fensive work of Marvel must be reckoned
with In the saving of the contest nd,
aryhow Bellevue won.
Presbyterian was pitted against Presby
terian In the contest and the natural
rivalry of the two colleges lent added aest
to the game, which, from the spectator's
standpoint, was not excelled. If equalled,
cn a local gridiron this year. The game
was replete with th use of the forward
pass, and the on-side kick for which there
Is r.o penalization for failure was utilized
to decided advantage once or twice, Enfield
of Bellevue making a big gain on one play
of the kind.
At straight football, Hastings excelled
and Its Interference moved rapidly every
time. Hastings big gains were made, how
ever, by the forward pass and four times
being blocked and one falling short. A
fumble by Warner spoiled another chance
at a score and the fourth opportunity went
glimmering when a forward pass hit the
ground the eight of a second before the
end scooped tt up. Just at the end of the
first half Bellvue rushed the bull back to
the middle of the field and when the
It was within striking distance of the goal
line. Two place kicks were essayed, one
whistle blew the score was 0 to 0.
The intermission over, Bellvue got the
ball after the kick off and In turn essayed
the forward pass. It was worked prettily.
Marvel would dash to the right as If for a
quarter back run and then crisscross the
ball through the air to the left end. Two
plays of the kind were what put the ball
up where Pearson kicked It over the crosn
bars. Hastings worked the pass a llttln
differently. The quarter not run but the
other backs sallied to one side and then
the quarter threw to the other.
Many Fake Plays.
The old fashioned crisscross and some
new varieties were attempted with fair
success by both sides and were successful
because the defensive playing of the end.
of both elevens was mediocre. Some of
the long gains In running back the ball
after kicks were due as much to the many
tackles missed by the ends as to the speed
of the runners although both Warren of
Hastings and Captain Marvel did show
great speed in open play.
The prettiest single run of the day was
that of Warren after Bellvue had scored
and he once more got the ball near tho
Bellvue goal line. Three desperate line
bucks failed to gain, however, Bellvue
showing good grit when hard pressed.
