Orrr University South
Next Saturday wilt bo nn off day for
the Crelghton varsity eleven, as no same
will be played on that date, Tarklo col
lege of Tarklo, Mo., was scheduled, but
called off the engagement through fear
of Injury to Its players so near to
Thanksgiving. Crelghton has been nego
tiating with Cotncr and Baker unlver
iiltlca for the date, but It has been de
elded to allow the men to rest for the
Thanksgiving game. The Crelghton squad
already has a number of cripples' and no
further chances of weakening the squad
before Thanksgiving will bo taken,
The flnat and only other game on the
Crelghton schedule will be the crucial
test of the year with the South Dakota
Coyotes on Crelghton field Thanksgiving.
This will bo the third annual contest be
tween the two schools. On both former
occasion the northerners won by deci
sive scores, last year's victory being a
walkaway. This year, however, Crelgh
ton hopes of a victory are far brighter.
The locals have a team. acknowledged to
be the best which has donned the blue
and white colors In many a day. The
Crelghton record up to yesterday's game
with Omaha university was: Crelghton,
7; Kearney Normal, 7; Crelghton, 0; Wes
leyan, 7; Crelghton, 13; Marquette, R;
Crelghton, 8S; Bellovuc, 0; Crelghton, 0;
Haskell, 7, The cancellation of the St.
Louis game probably robbed the blue and
white ot another victory. Crelghton has
scared a total of 103 points against her
opponents' S7. '
Outlook Is flood.
The cripples on the Crelghton team,
Young, Coady, Hanley and Brennan, who
have been giving Coach Miller and
Trainer Kelly come worry, . are all ex
pected to be In the pink of condition by
Thanksgiving, and Crelghton will un
doubtedly be ablo to present her strong
est lineup. Last year the team was weak
ened by the loss of Captain Miller, and
to this .is partly attributed the largo score
rolled up by the Coyotes.
$)a the other hand South Dakota has
not played such good foot ball as for
merly. It has met defeat at the hands
of Notre Dame and Minnesota. This lat
ter team wan beaten by Nebraska and
the Haskell Indiana barely nosed out a
victory over Crelghton after virtually
tying Nebraska. A comparison of these
cores shows that Crelghton should at
least push the Coyotes.
The Crelghton management has sent a
list of possible officials for the Thanks
klvlng game to Vermilion, but they have
not yet been ratified by the South Da
Preparations are already being made
for record turnout to the big game, as
it will be the only big game In Nebraska
on that date. A number of the boxes
have already been disposed of.

IOWA CITY. Ia., Nov, l.-(8peclal.)-Iowa's
"polnt-a-mlnuto" scoring machine
with the state championship safely
tucked away, will begin preparations to
morrow for Its last, and with one ex
ception, Its hardest test of the season.
The defeat of the Ames team by the
largest score over made In tho history
of tho two schools, wan not unexpected
here, but the students realize that Ne
braska will bo a far different problem
whan tho Hawkeyes and Cornhuskors
line Up next Saturday at Lincoln.
Open Work Victory.
A review of the Ames game shows that
the victory and the size of the score
are nllko duo to tho wonderful open
field work of the Iowa bocks. Dick was
at his best, slipping through tho Ames
lino, diving off tacklo, or going around
the ends for gains ot from fivo to fifty
yards. Ills longest run, a fifty-yard dash
from the center of the field for a touch
down, was a great piece of open field
running. Pcnnlngroth featured with a
forty-yard spurt, being stopped only when
he went out of bounds. McQInnls made
long and consistent gains. Ho punctured
Wormhoudt, tho Aggie weak spot, twice
for twenty-flve-yard gains, which took
him across tho goal line. Gross was as
slippery as over in his running back of
PUnts and dashes" through the Ames line.
Dowen, substitute end, Is being given
great praise for his work. His open field
tackling was the best seen on the part
bf any end hero this year. Drucckner
was another Iowa star.
The Iowa lino, outweighed badly, played
its usual steady gome, and although
punctured occasionally made sure that
no touchdowns could be earned through
It. Tho condition qf the locals 1s shown
by the fact that the some cloven men
played through the gome, and that time
was taken out for Iowa but twice, once
for Gross when his head was pumped
hard against the ground and ono when
Uunderson broke a strap on n pad which
Comparative Hcores Mean Little.
Although their team defeated Ames by
n score somewhat larger than that made
against Nebraska, the supporters of tho
Hawkeyes are not banking heavily upon
that circumstance as a reason why they
will defeat tho Cornhuskers. Comparative
scores mean little, nnd the Cornhuskers
probably caught tho Aggies on a better
day than did Iowa, Any team which con
defeat Minnesota Is given all credit here,
where the difficulty ot this task Is apprc
cated. The last week ot practice will be de
voted to light work for the most part,
as the hard work of tho heavy schedule
Is telling upon the light Iowa team.
Scrimmage practice will be held one
evening only, and the team wlllleave for
NebraskiTrobably Thursday night. The
Iowa cripples should be In shape by the
time tho final gome Is played, but no
shifts In the lineup are expected.
Fiercely to a Win
In qne of tho fastest games on the lo
cal gridiron tho Thorpeans Athletic
club defeated tho Ilaller Pharmacy team
by a score of 13 to IS. Hart, Newton,
Bchats and Levlnsohn were tho stars for
the winners, while Walter Spellman was
doing most of the work for the losing
team. The Thorpeans will next play the
Clearmonts for the city championship ot
the 20-pound class.

The Alumni association of Crelghton

ended the most successful foot ball sea
