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 ATHLETIC SUPPLIES FOR ' GRADE SCHOOLS ARRIVE t - Supplies for equipping all school play grounds with facilities for organized play are being received by Athletic Supervisor R. L. Carns. With the first Indication of the break of the winter the play grounds will be equipped with tennis nets, places to play volley ball, base ball and croquet grounds.

Mr. Carns has been investigating all the new "games" and forms of play, and will spend his vacation next summer in further investigations. The most help ful of these sports are being incorporated in the organized play system here. Tennis Tournament is Down to Finals The girls' tennis tournament has pro gressed rapidly with the renewal of good tennis weather, and the play has ad vanced to the finals. In the consolations the first round has been played. The winner of the tournament is picked to be either lone Fogg, Nettie Muir or Cather ine Culver.

Also the games for tomorrow are more distinctly state games than tho offering of any other week.

The rolling of the Clara Belle team in the Booster league has been little short of sensational. They have twice broken league records in individual games and on total pins. Their score this week was their latest contribution to the new record column. Their 2.944 total is the 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. Firestone had a hard time getting started Tuesday night. He came up strong in the last game, finishing with a fiE4 total. GRAND ISLAND DEFEATS KFAPNEY Mil itary SCHOOL GRAND ISLAND. Neb.. Oct ?S.-Sd, cial Telegram.) Grand Island High school won the foot ball game here todayi fr.-wn i meal ticket Charley Zarp is still the heavy man for the Jetter team. He is going good In both leagues and don't seem to have lost any of the old-time accuracy he bad when hewas state champion. The Storz Bottlers got away nicely In the Cellar league. Every man wis over 500. This Is good shooting. Frank's Colts came very close to nab bing three straight from the J. S; Cross team. They lost one by the narrow mar gin of two pins. Grotte is delivering the goods for the J. S. Cross team in the Gate City league. His 641 this week is good rolling. This is not his first good showing this season and he bids fair to keep it up. Look out fo Howell, every other week. In the last four he has gone at the rate of 649, 445, 678 and 433. Next week is his big week. ' The Advos are right on the heels of the Metz team. They are going good and stand a good show of overtaking the fast aggregation. -A youthful follower of the game on the r.'delines the other night made a re mark that the rolling of Joe Berger's dope ball was a good imitation of the Salome dance. Henceforth Joe will call it the "Salome ball." Jimmy Fitzgerald was seen bowling in his stocking feet the other night. Jimmy got down to the game late and did not have time to put on his bowling shoes. Herr Hamlet has arranged several spe cial matches for the coming week. He will play a series of eight games with Fred Balzer, total pins to count, and four rames to be played on the association Inter- aUeys and four on the Metropolitan al- uvs. Next Sunday he plays a match game wun riresione on me Asse';iiion and Metropolitan alleys.

Fen Vo"- won the Uneeda Qu'ck Lunch on the Metropolitan alleys the Metropolitan alleys Hamlet defeatcl Balzer 16S pins. "Stop 'em!" The Clara Belles have won nine straight games in the Booster league. Old-time bowlers could well learn a lesson by watching those dentists. The enthusiasm displayed by the members or this new league is without a flaw. Lathrup of the Cottage Arcs was" the star shooter In the Gas league Wednes day night. He piled up a total of u4,. The Old Saxon Brau rolled the higiiest total in thf- Morrison league Wednesday night. One noticeable leature of the match was the consistent rolling of the placers. Fritscher. Ml; Gjerde, 638; Si'h'oenman, 6M; Sclple, 526, and Yousen, 641. Dr. Cox was the star performer In the Tri-aty Dental league this week. He rolled a grand total of 685.

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.
