The Missouri Valley conference
schools getting Into action tomorrow are
Nebraska against Adrian. Missouri
aealnst Oklahoma, Ames against Grin
nell, and Kansas against the. Kansas
Aggies. The Kansas and Missouri games
should give a further line on the strength
of these two elevens that the battles In
which thev lost last week did not bring
out. Nebraska S Expected to win from
Adrian, but of this Michigan college m
tle is known by the general publio, and
If the Cornhuskers are held to a low
score, the Impression' that Stiehm's eleven
Is weak will soon go abroad. It should
he known that Adrian college. Is one if
the strongest secondary elevens in coun-
pessibly outranking even some 01
Missouri Valley conference teams.
uurinff the last three years Adrian has
suffered only one defeat, that being at
the hands of Notre Dame.
Adrian Veteran Team.
On the Adrian eleven are eight veterans
-Just three less than a whole team. The
eleven weighs as much as the Cornhusk
ers, and some of the linemen are stronger
and more powerful than the Nebraska
players. Byrd, halfback. Is an athlete of
international fame. It was he wno won
second place in the discus throw In the
Olympic games last summer. Several
other good athletes are In the lineup, and
It would not be a great surprise to fol
lowers of the Cornhuskers If Stiehm's
mn were held to a low score. Just at
present the Cornhuskers are not In. the
best of shape. They have not nuiy re
mvM from the effects of the Minne
sota battle. The backfield Is intact, but
the line Is not playing -well.
Missouri goes Into battle against the
Sooner-, and probably will lose, unless
Coach Brewer has worked wonders with
his men since the Ames defeat. Nebraska
meets the Oklahoma eleven In the final
game of the fall, and, knowing now the
strength of the Tigers, this game of
Saturday will give the Cornhuskers a
line on the- ability of the Sooners. Kan
sas plays the Aggies, wno were licked by
the Cornhuskers by a large score two
weeks ago, end should hold the Jay
hawkers to a low score.
Crelghton at Sionx City.
" Creighton university meets Morningside
college of Sioux City. It is expected that
the Omaha college will win by a fair
sized margin. Coach Miller has molded a
fine eleven and he will undoubtedly win
most of the other games this fall.
Minneapolis and Iowa meet at Min
neapolis. The Gophers are going fast
now and. unless they have had a setback
following the Nebraska battle tJtey will
whip the Hawkeyes worse than they de
feated the Cornhuskers. Iowa has one of
the best elevens that that state school
has turned out In years, but the Gophers
are playing fine foot ball and can be ro
iled upon to lick the Iowans decisively.
Chicago should run up a large score on
Purdue. Ames will have an easy time
with Grinnell. Indiana and Northwestern
will furnish an Interesting battle, with
Indiana winning, undoubtedly. Case and
Ohio state should hav a close battle
Wabash writ furnish little opposition for
Votre Dame. -
Michigan in East.
Michigan Journeys, east to meet Syra
cuse. The eastern eleven Is not strong
this fall, while Tost has one of the best
teams of years. He should run up a large
score. Princeton and Dartmouth meet at
Princeton In what should be the best bat
tle of the east . The Tigers are picked to
win. but the Dartmouth team will show
fine fight, and might, with a little luck,
win. The Army meets Colgate In a battle
that should not seriously test the West
Pointers, Harvard will find Brown n
hard proposition, for the Brunonlans are
playing excellent ball now. Tale meets

DKS MOINES, la., Oct. 25.-Iowa foot
ball teams will play, more games this
Saturday than any other week of the
season. Also the games for tomorrow
are more distinctly state games than tho
offering of any other week. Because of

best score rolled this season, excepting
only the recent high total made by the
Metz team. The team is not a one-man
affair, but well balanced one, consisting
of such stars as Eidson, Wartchaw
Jaros, eain, Johnson and Stunz.

Hard Game Expected
By Nebraska Eleven
LINCOLN, Neb., Oct. 26. -The outlook
tonight was for the appearance of many
substitutes In the Nebraska foot ball
lineup when It faces Adrian college Sat
urday on Nebraska's field. Harman, at
tackle, is still suffering from hurts re
ceived in the Minnesota game, Purdy Is
crippled and Halllgan, full back. Is unable
to play his usual game. The coaches are
drilling the scrubs for emergency use,
and several will probably go in at the
start. The practice drill today by the
regulars was lively, but not satisfactory
to Coach Stlehm. The Adrian eleven,
which Is expected to arrive this evening,
is reported to be fully as heavy as the
Cornhuskers, and the Nebraska men must
depend on their speed if they win, as
they expect to.
