LINCOLN, Neb.. Oct. 28 (Special.)
Practice behind cloned (rates Is the order
fur the Cornhuskers until the Kansas
"King" Cole Inaugurated the secret ses
sions yesterday afternoon when he began
using new plays, having the varsity try
them against the scrubs, who were sup
plied with a full line of Jayhawker tricks.
In the past It has been Cole's custom to
hold only one or two hours of practice
In secret before a big game, but the Kan
sas game means so much to Nebraska
this year that tse head coach has decided
to take no needless chances of exposing
his plays to Jayhawker spies. Then, too,
the Cornhuskers have well In mind the
game with Kennedy's men last season,
when the Jayhawkera knew all the Ne-
fffraska plays. That looked suspicious and
caused the Cornhuskers 'to be on their
guard this fall.
In practice today the scrubs tried the
Kansas defense against the varsity's new
plays and failed to hold up. The first
team men found the weak spots In the
scrubs' play and penetrated for long gains.
The scrubs on the offense were thrown
back repeatedly for big losses when at
tempts to drive through the Cornhusker
line were made.
The onside kick and forward pass, of
which Kansas has boasted so much this
fall, Is coming In for great consideration
hy Cole's men. He Is drilling his play
ers to break up the worward pass forma
tions, and had the scrubs use the Jay
hawkers' pass In practice today. The ef
forts of the varsity to spoil these plays
failed miserably most of ' the time and
showed very plainly that Cole has much
work yet to do before his players will be
In shape to cope with the offensive tactics
of Kennedy's tribe.
There Is still evident a great weakness
among the Cornhuskers in driving down
the field under punts. They were, ex
tremely slow In this department of play
this afternoon. Instead of being down the
field to tackle a player as .soon as he
receives a punt, they appear to wait for
him to get the oval and the nstart back
with It. ' This gives the opposing side a
chance to gain many yards that could be
denied them by a little more effort on
the part of the Cornhuskers. ;
Cole announced today that all the regu
lars would get to play a part of the game
with Donne Saturday. He said he would
probably let the regular lineup start the
game and then, as soon aa the scoring
started, he would begin taking out the
regulars ami replacing them with substi
tutes. The athletic board has decided to present
each varsity Cornhusker with a solid gold
foot ball for a watch fob If Nebraska
defeats Kansas next week. The players
were told of this Intention at the gymna
sium today, and all said they would get
"those foot balls or die."
CREIGHTON IS WORKING HARD

Crelghton Is ready for the annual foot
ball battle with Hghland Park, which Is
scheduled for Saturday afternoon at Vinton

to beat this team at Des Moines, but this
year expects to take the measure of the
sturdy lowana in Omaha.
Coach Schneider has been giving his men
some strenuous work tor the last two

MIOlHI TIGERS LIKE LAMBS
Coach Riser "ends K am her of Sqaad
Bark to Colombia.
CEDAR RAPIDS, la.. Oct. 28. (Speclnl.)
A general shifting and roaming for "bone
headedness" was In store for the crippled
remnants of what once was a foot ball
team when Cosch rtoper's twenty-two Mis
souri Tigers reported for signal practice at
league park, "Such defensive play as you
showed angalnst Cos would allow Iowa to
score 60 points," snapped the coach In a
disgusted tone, after which he lined the
whole squad on the goal line and ran them
back and forth across the field several
times to tesch them quick starting and Im
prove their wind.
With seven players crippled, four of
whom are sure not to be able to pliy Sat
urday, and with two more. Datherage
end I,awrence, sent back to the scrubs at
Columbia on account of poor condition and
work, the problem of picking the eleven
that will start the Iowa game Is much
simplified. Only six of the eleven that last
year defeated the Hawkeyes will be In the
game this year, and this fact mxkes the
tank- of beating Griffith's huMs who
will undoubtedly outweigh Ihe Tigers over
ten pounds to the man, an extremely hard
Klein and Saunders are to divide the
quarterback work Saturday and the work
of both has Improved much during the
past week. Hall and Alexnnder are both
working out at punting, for It is llkelv
that Hackney's Injurv In the Ames game
will keep him out of part or all of the
Iowa game. Bluck's great place klcklni
ability will doubtless he of value to the
team If he retains the form shown n gainst
Cos yesterd-y when he placed three out
of four attempts sausrly over the bar
one from a dltanee of fifty yards. Wilder
will likely tke Clare's place at fullhnck
and Anderson will fill In at Heht tackle,
both changes the result of Injuries to regu
lars. Much time Is being spent In strengthen
ing the defense, for the way Coe st times
broke through wss not st all plealng to
the coaches. Several other plavers are on
probation as a result of poor work on the
trip and unless Improvement Is shown In
spirit, snother consignment wl'l be shinned
back to Columbia, as no loafing will be
tolerated. Captain Rlstine Is the only
man on the squad sure of his position and
previous exnerlenre counts for nothing
with Roper If fight and hard work are not
coupled with' It.
Froo'or Thompson, a substitute end. was
wired for last nlaht and will loin the,souad
here tomorrow. He Is hevy and fast and
his improved work on the scrubs at Col
umbia merited his advancement.

Fix on Meeting
Arrangements for Big Fight Will Be
Made Friday Afternoon by
NEW YORK. Oct IS.-The match' for
the heavyweight . championship of the
world between Jack Johnson, the negro
champion, and James J. Jeffries, the re
tired title holder, will be arranged at a
meeting of the principals and their man
agers at I o'clock tomorrow afternoon In
The arrangements of the meeting were
made by George Little, manager of John
son and Sam Berger, who represented Jef
fries, who held a conference a few hours
after the arrival here of Johnson from
Chicago this morning.
NEW YORK. Oct. 28.-'T am glad to get
back to New York. I have come all the
way from San Francisco to meet Mr. Jef
fries and sign articles for our battle, and
I am willing to make the match under
any fair conditions," said Jack Johnson,
the negro heavyweight as he disembarked
from the Twentieth Centruy limited from
Chicago at the Orand Central station this
There was a big crowd on hand. Includ
ing many of his negro friends, to welcome
Jeffries' rival, Johnson was accompanied by
his manager, Oeorge Little. The two men
had some difficulty In getting through the
crowd which gathered along the station
platforms and crowded and cheered the
champion. Johnson grinned from ear to
ear as the crowd gathered around and
shook him by the hand and asked him
about the fight with Jeffries.
"I hope to meet Jeffries at once, the
sooner the better," said Johnson. "I never
felt better, except the boll on my cheek
bothers me some. I weigh about 206
pounds, How did I get that boll? I guess
I have been living too high."
Speaking of the match with Jeffries,
Johnson displayed an evident desire to
have the articles signed right away and
the negotiations for the contest concluded.
"Oeorge Little, my manager, will see
Sam Berger," said Johnson, "and arrange
for a meeting. Of course I shall be at the
meeting, for Jeffries and I can do more
In five minutes to settle this matter than
all the go-betweens can do in a day.
"I am ready to abide by the conditions
that I entered into with Berger In Chicago,
except that I shall ask for a winner's and
loser's division of the purse."
Jeffries was delighted when he heard
that Johnson had reached the city and said
ha was ready at any time to arrange terma.
The ex-boller maker put In some time this
morning In gymnasium work.

Secrecy on Iowa Field.
IOWA CITY. la, Oct. 28 (Special.) 8o
often did the freshmen backs puncture the
Iowa line that the coaches gave the regu
lars a grueling thirty minutes' scrimmage
practice with the ball continually In the
possession of tlie first year men. The de
fense even Jate, In the practice was only
fair. The coaches threaten to continue the
scrimmage' practice until the last minute
unless the line holds the light freshmen
backs In better style.
New men have been reporting regularly
to the freshmen and varsity squads since
the Nebraska game. Last night Gordon,' a
Junior dental student was tried at halfback
and hts work made a favorable impression
on the coaches. McClellsn, a star In the
Intercollege game last Saturday has re
ported and will probably be worked at end
Kahlln and Collins are two n-w freshmen
recruits. "We must have a strong line of
eubstltutes." said Coach Griffith and with
the assistance of Assistant Coach Ebv
every effort Is being made to Induce avail
able material to report at Iowa field each
evening. Last night the coaches refused
admittance to any newspaper men and the
strictest secrecy Is being maintained to
keep all reports on the new plays from
even the student public.
Legal to Insure
Iowa Attorney General Benders an
Opinion in Response to Auditor's
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, Oct. 28. (Special Tele
gram.) Attorney General Byers held to
day that an Insurance company to Insure
bank deposits Is legal under the Iowa
laws. Such a corporation. It is learned,
will be started here. The opinion was
given at the request of the state auditor.
Formerly a corporation aought permission
to Insure Individual depositors. The attor
ney general held this would be against
public policy, as the volume of business
would depend on the suspicion of the
hanks stirred up by the company. The
company now proposes to Insure the banks
after examinglng their books,' and the
charge will be baaed on the amount of de
posits. Poor risks will be refused, conse
quently strong banks will not be paying
the expense of Insurance for weak banks.
President J. P. White of the Iowa Coal
Miners today scored In three rounds, and
the Baker-Archibald faction went down to
defeat In the same number at today's con
vention. The victories for White were on
roll calls, showing he had a clear major
ity, which prophesies the final outcome.
The question Is whether the final adjust
ment will be such that harmony will be
restored. Jacob Rltter, the national or
ganizer in Iowa and a member of the Ba
ker faction, said today It would take a
week yet to settle the matter.
English militant methods will likely be
adopted by the Iowa auffraglsts and the
halls of the legislature stormed In 1911, as
a result of the address today at the state
convention by Elnore Gordon, the state
president. In a ringing speech she said
that the ladylike, gentle methods of the
past were Ineffectual and that more vigor
ous methods were needed. She said she
would willingly go to Jail rather than sub
mit to the humiliations she experienced
last winter when she lobbied for the bill.
Mrs. Coggshall, the honorary president,
Dr. Nina Dewey and others of the older
members adlsed against the English mill
tant methods, but the younger, energetic
element today seem to be In control.
