LINCOLN. Oct. .-Ppeclal. As the day
of the Iowa game drsws near an appre
hension about defeating the Hawkayea la
forming !n the Cornhusaer camp, and there
are frequently heard around the eampua
expressions of belief that the men from
Iowa City will spring a neat surprise on
"King" Cole's playera. '
Immediately after Nebraska' atrong
showing against Minnesota last Saturday a
feeling that the Cornhuskers would find
eaay prey In Iowa permeated the atmos
phere at the .local Institution. "A team
that could hold the powerful Oophera to
a low acore." It was thought, "surely ought
to be capable of snowing under an eleven
that Minnesota trimmed to the icore of
41 to 0."
During the last forty-eight houra the
etudent body haa struck Ha riormal way of
thinking and It Is ' beginning to analyse
conditions pertaining to the game and at
the same time admitting the Hawkeyes
may have a better show than waa at first
In the first place It Is remembered that
Iowa has had a rest of two weeks having
met no opponent last Saturday and that
Its men ought to be much fresher than the
Cornhuskers by. Saturday. Condition la a
great factor In foot ball and If the Hawk
eyes can come to Lincoln with all their
regulars In fine form, they are liable to
become exhausted only after the Cornhusk
ers have been worn out by fierce play. If
such Is the case they may be In a posi
tion to ran over the Nebraska men a
Minnesota did only after "King" Cole's
players were too waak to fight back.
Then It Is realised that Iowa has not had
a chance to show Its real strength yet.
So far the games It has played have been
early season contests, when it could not
be expected to play In fast form. ,
By now It should have struck Its mid
season form and should put up the best
game It will play at any time during the
fall. Coach Griffith has much good mate
rial at Iowa and It Is only a question
of whether he' knows how to handle his
men as to whether they will be In shape
for a grueling game here this week. If
Griffith has handled his men as well as
Cola did the Cornhuskers after the South
Dak tola game, bringing them up to an ag
gressive team from a weak lot of young
sters, he will no doubt hold Nebraska to
a hard battle. -
What ( Fear.
It Is the knowledge that Iowa haa t,he
material for the best . team In Its own
state and that it haa men equal to the
best Cornhuskers that is driving fear Into
the Nebraska camp.
Many of the rooters, look for Iowa to
come up and do Juaf Vrhat Nebraska ac
complished against - Minnesota, and even
more. They look for an even battle In tho
first half, with about a tie score and then
In the second ; half, ' they expect the team
with, the greater endurance to win out. If
Nebraska haa suffered a staleness as a
result of the hard fight, against Minnesota,
Iowa Is held to win by Its better condi
tion. The first hard scrimmage practice of the
week was held by the Cornhuskers this
afternoon. All the men, with the excep
tion of Bentley,' were able to take part In
this. Bentley Injured his back at Omaha
and Is taking work easy this week. Lof
rren Is being trained to "fill his position

scrubs easy and ran through them at

A slight rain which fell here today was
welcomed by the Cornhuskers, for It has
softened up the ground on the new field,

limbs of the players.
Cole Is afraid his men will be hurt If they
play here Saturday and he wanta the game
pulled off at Antelope park. It haa been
advertised for the new field and it will
have to take place there. If another rain
comes before Saturday the ground, how
ever, will be pretty well softened up and It
will be nearly aa good as a turf field.
AMES HAS rROBLKM IX TIGERS
Aggies Mast Pat l' Strong; Gasae ta
AMES. la., Oct. 20 (Special.) But two of
the Aggie players who gave the Tigers of
Missouri such a trouncing at Columbia will
be on the team which faces Roper's eleven
at Ames next Saturday. One of them Is
Heggen, the quarterback, and the other Is
Wilmarth, the tackle and captain. Heggen
played but a few mlnutea In this game and
Wilmarth was used as a substitute.
With the conditions such as these the
Ames students are not anticipating any
such victory as was scored last year.. In
fact, a defeat would not be surprising. It
is realised that Missouri Is strong. The line
appears to be such that Ames with Its
green forwards can hardly hope to cope
with I. Missouri has downed some mighty
opponents this year, and must be rounding
Into great condition.
It must be admitted that Coach Williams
of the Aggies has done wonderful work
with such green material. Coe and Orln
nell have been beaten by substantial scores
and Minnesota's great eleven was held to a
total of eighteen for two terrific - halves.
There is some great foot ball material
stowed away in the husky frames of the
present foot ball team here. Williams Is
bound to have it developed some time be
fore the season Is over. 1'he only question
Is whether or not he can get It ready for
In the Ames back field, there are no Si
Lamberts, Uuy Lamberts or Homer Hub
bards. , There Is not even a star In the back
three. Harto. a brother of Harte of the
Nebraska team. Is the best man of the
trio, and he Is the main reliance in carry-1
ing the ball. He Is a hard man to stop,
running with great power. Johnson at full
back Is a fair performer, and Kingman la
a good steady plugger. Heggen, at quarter
s a star, but has been in but ope game
this year on account of Injuries. He is
liable to go out any time. McCoy, his sub
stitute, is aot up to the requisite standard.
Chappell and Telller, the two best ends,
are light and have not had the experience
necessary for first-class foot ball teams.
T!,e Amea line will be fairly strong. Wil
marth at one tackle is fast and aggressive.
He is good not only on defense, but on of
fense as well. Troeger Is the best green
tackle that Ames has had In a long time.
Elliott Is a first-class guard. Ketman is
fail. Scott is a good reliable center. Amea
Is weak In substitutes this year. Williams
has used nothing but straight foot ball thus
far, but haa a few tricks up his sleeve to
spring In the Missouri game.

Port ftom Lincoln that the athletic board
of the University of Nebraska ts kicking

ball game last Saturday between Nebraska
and Minnesota. The published report is
that the board says the patronage was not
large enough, expenses were high and Pa
llourke charged W per cent for tne use of
"That's a nice come-off," remarks a local
fan. "As a matter of fact, 1 doubt tne
board's making any such absurd complaint,
but If it has done so it is committing It
self to public ridicule. The attendance was
better than 8.000. When In the history or
foot ball at Lincoln did ever such a crowd
turn out? True, at Lincoln the team gets
the grounds free, but It also get very much
smaller crowds. Pa Rourke Is a business
man who has to pay for what he gets as
he goes and probably since he has to pay
his lease on tne park, could not easily al
fnrd to donate Its use for such enterprises
as a big college foot ball game. As to the
expenses, If they. were high, blame it on
the managers, not -Omaha. Of course -the
expenses for such a game would naturally
be high, whether the game were played in
Omaha, Chicago, Kalamasoo, or anywhere,
except, naturally. Lincoln. I venture to say
that Manager Eager win not care to place
himself on record as endorsing this criti
cism. He's too level-headed for that.
"The board probably meant to offer the
criticism that the game waa played In
Omaha and 'was such a tremendous suc

all games shall be played In doleful little

who was Injured In the Villa Nova game
last Saturday was practically abandoned
this afternoon, when, the following state
ment was Issued to the Associated Press
from the naval hospital, here:
"At A consultation of physicians this
afternoon It was decided that the benefits
of an operation were so Improbable and
the chances of death so great, that an
operation la not considered Justifiable.

Card System In Foot Ball.
DBS MOINES. Ia., Oct 20. (Special.)
Coach Griffith of Drake, has sprung a new
Idea in teaching foot ball. He has Intro
duced a card system for the help of the
players. On the card Is a list of the es
sentials of foot ball, such as tackling. In
terference, falling on the fall, dodging, eto.
At the conclusion of tho practice each even
ing the players are handed these cards
with the points In which they are weak
marked. Thus each player Is given the in
dividual attention that he might not re
ceive under any other system.

Dr. B. F. Roller of Seattle, the wrest
ling physician and his manager, Jack Cur
ley, an old Chicago sport, stopped In
Omaha, Wednesday, on their way east.
They will tarry In Chicago and possibly go
on to Europe. Roller has never been abroad
to wrestle and Curley thinks he will be a
big card over the seas, where bo many men
of . the mat have found lucrative harvest
fields among the Johnny Bulldogs of Dear
Ol'.Lunnon and other British towns.
"W are ' aorry to have become contam
inated with, that bunch uf fakirs, most of
hom have been Indicted by tne federal
grand Juries In Omaha and Council Bluffj
for complicity In the Mabray crlmta,", said
Curley. "When Dr. Roller first arranged
to wrestle Warner, under ths management
of Jos Carroll or Ole Marsh, his alles,
neither of us was aware of the records
these men had made In the Mabray cases,
but w beat them at their own game and
now w are trying to show our friends
that we were simply the Innocent victims
of evil associations. In Seattle all the
decent papers have come out strongly on
our side. One paper, for some peculiar
reason, boosts the other fellows, but that
we can't help."
Roller and Curley were anxious to meet
Farmer Burns In Omaha, but the old man
waa out of town looking after one of bis
half a doxen farms in Nefchaska, Iowa and
Speaking of this big fellow Zbysoo, who
has recently been unloaded from a European
vesael at New York and hauled back to
the Interior, Dr. Roller said:
"He's a good man, a very good man, but
when he goes up against Gotch he will
find that there Is one man better than him

symptoms of ringing noises In the ears, mucous dropping back into the
throat, headaches, watery eyes, difficult breathing, and even stomach
disorders and weakened health, cannot be permanently relieved until the
blood is purified. Local applications alone can have no real curative value,
because such treatment does not reach the blood. Sprays, inhalations,
lotions, eta., are valuable only for their cleansing and antiseptio effect, but
if depended on alone Catarrh sufferers will find a cure impossible. Nothing

at the root of the trouble, and removes every particle of catarrhal, matter
from the blood and enriches this vital fluid so that Instead of irritating
the different mucous portions of the body, it nourishes them with rich,
health-giving properties. Then the symptoms begin to pass away, and
Catarrh is permanently cured. Book on Catarrh and any medical advice
