LINCOLN, Nov. 18.- (Special.) -With
the Nebraska squad In the finest shape
of the eason. according to Coach Stlehm,
the Cornhuskers setl'ed down In earnest
today to prepare for the battle with tho
"point a minute" eleven representing tho
University of Iowa.
Nebraska could not be In better shape

Into shape. Towle had a little bruise
from tho Kansas game, but the rest of
the plarera are on edge.
Scrimmage started tonight with the
varsity's first Introduction to the famous
spread play of the Iowans. Assistant
Coach Dudley, Who saw the Ames-Iowa
game at Iowa City last Saturday, coached
the first year men In executing the spread
play last ntght and It was given a try
out against the varsity this evening.
Dudley says the play Is Nebraska's
greatest bugaboo, and It the Huskers
succeed In perfecting a defense for It
the game should be comparatively safe
for the Cornhuskers. Dudley says he
Tfould net be willing to bet a cent on
the outeene of the game, that Just now

conference and It will tent Nebraska
thoroughly t win from It.

Figures on Winning
the Next Two Battles
Because of the recent defeats of the
University of Omaha foot ball team,
Coach Morganthaler Is more than ever
determined to take the two remaining
games of the season. Lack of weight
has been the chief cause of the poor
showing made by the team, ns the oppos
ing teams have In every game outweighed
the Omaha squad. Morgenthaler has tried
several, times to offset this disadvantage
by shifting his heavier men on the line,
but the result has not proved to be much
of a success. Tho heavier teams played
have continually plowed their ,way
throught the light Omaha line, making
the greater number of points in this man
ner. The two remaining games with
Peru and Tarklo are such that the Uni
versity of Omaha squad will be about
equally matchtd with the opposing teams.
The game with Crelghton Saturday re
sulted In several of the players receiving
Injuries (hat will keep them out of prac
tice for several days. Of those receiving
the worst Injuries, Dow and Adams were
perhaps the most seriously Injured. Dow
received a badly dislocated knee cap,
while Adams had his shoulder Wrenched,
Taking things as a whole, the University
of Omaha squad came off rather lucky In
the Crelghton game.
Morganthaler did not give his men
practice Monday evening,, satisfying the
squad's needs with a light signal practice
Members of the foot ball team are look
ing on the bright side of things and ex
pect to come back stronger. than ever .In
the game with Peru Saturday. The re
cent defeats have spurred the Omaha
players on to more action, so they- ex

son to defeat, Peru. In the game last
year the University of Omaha team de

FRESHMEN PUT IT OVER
A bitterly contested battle, lasting over
four hours Monday night gave the fresh
men of Bellevue the victory In the an
nual "flag fight" held at the terminus
of each foot boll season: Tho class of
1917 had been preparing for this conflict
for some time and were organized against
their older and wiser opponents.
About 13 o'clock the freahles rolled out
of bed and hung their flag on one of the
electric light poles on the campus.- The
sophs, of couree, soon got wise to the
flag raising stunt and In less tlnfe than
It takes to tell It the base or tho pole
was, a mass of fighting fellows. Anyone
would have thought that the fall of
Khartoum or a battle of Bull Run was
In progress and It was a rue Waterloo
for the sophomores. Oreatly outnumbered
they fought like Trojans and gave the
aggrcesors the fight of their lives. No
less than seven times the sophs broke
their bonds and strove for master)', but
each time were trussed up more securely
than before, Finally the last belligerent
was subdued and they yielded the victory
to the class of 1917.

NEW YORV, Nov. 18,-Presldent Charles
Ebbets of the Brooklyn National league
base ball club, announced today that
the Superbas' new manager, to succeed
William Dahlon, would be Wilbert Robin
son, until recently a member of the New
York Olants. Robinson signed a Brook
lyn contract this morning and wilt take
Immediate charge of the playing end of
Robinson was one of the best catchers
of his day as a member of the famous
Baltimore Orioles during the years when
McGraw was playing third base for that
organisation. He followed McGraw to
the New York club and for several years
has been the tatter's first aaslstant on
the coaching lines, as well as a developer
of recruit pitchers. He -was Instrumental
In developing Rube Marquard, Jeff Tes
reau and AI Demaree.
Robinson waa recently given his uncon
ditional release by the New York club,
and It waa said at that time he would
in all probability be engaged to manage
the new Baltimore club of the Federal
league. His appointment to succeed Dah
len came as a surprise.
Many Going from
Here to the Iowa-
'The special Burlington train for Lin-'
coin Saturday for the Iowa-Nebraska foot 1
ball game Is to leave Omaha at 12 o'clock '
Instead of at 1 o'clock as did the lasti
special tor the Minnesota game. This wilt
get tho crowd Into Lincoln at 1:20 instead
of 3:30 aa did the last special.
Amoa Thomas is looking after local ar
rangements here. He has already sold
100 tickets for the game, and expects to
have at least 200. men on the special
train. From present Indications and the
f Interest taken In the big game he believes
there will be no trouble In getting a
crowd of 200.
"The bunch went down the last time
out of curiosity, Just to see the Minnesota
team play," he says, "but this time they
are going down to see two great teams
In a hard fought game. It Is real foot
ball they are going to see this time. Both
teams are winning teams this year, and
a hard fight Is looked for."
The special will leave Lincoln at 1:30
and is to arrive In Omaha at 7 o'clock.
IOWA CITY, la., Nov. 18. (Spedal.)
Supporters of the Iowa foot ball team
are prepared to send out a long and loud
claim to second place In the big nine for
their team In case It wins from Ne
braska at Lincoln next Saturday. In
view of the big scores made by the local
aggregation In every game with the ox-
ceptlon of the Chicago contest, and the
dofeat of Minnesota by Nebraska In an
early season pame; the- local rooters In
sist mat in case me. iornnusiters are
defeated their claim will have a strong
foundation. While the Nebraska victory
over the Gophers was, of course, gained
early In the season, Hawkeye followers
point out that the Chicago-Iowa game,
which cut the Iowa team out of the
running, waa played on the tame' day,
and no one Is trying to claim that that
game should not be considered, because
It was played too early.
Nearly Point a Mlnnte.
No team In tho west has made such
scores as Iowa's great machine this fall,
whether playing against strong or weak
teams. The aggregations trampled by
Iowa have been, at least on paper, fairly
strong aggregations. The State Teachers
and Cornell, both of which were, handed
overwhelming defeats at the - start of
the season, rank wth the best of the.
minor college elevens In the west.
Northwestern and Indiana are. both con
ference elevens, and have held other
conference teams to low scores. Ames,
even with the faculty of fighting In the
Iowa game as against no other team,
was beaten by a milch more decisive
score than Minnesota, Nebraska or Mis
souri wss able to run' up. The Iowa
team .has to date scored 310 points In 330'
minutes of play, a .record of very near a
point .per minute.
All this, however, depends upon the
final showing next Saturday and here,
the rooters are dubious. There is no
Hope that the westerners will prove such
easy prey as the teams met in tho last
month. Whether the Iowa offense can
stand up .against a defense- which stops
the fleet backfield before it can get
started is a question. It Is about as easy
for the Hawkeyes to run up a large
score as a small one, as the backs go for
long distances when they get Into the
open. Locally the odds are considered to
be in favor of Nebraska, as the Corn
huskers have weight, speed and the ad
vantage of fighting on the home grounds,
besides possessing a repertoire of plays
unknown here and an unbroken record.
Also, Nebraska has proven a tough
proposition Tn years past, as the one
Iowa victory shows. Captain Purdy,
Rutherford and Halllgan are the m?u
feared here, but without knowledge of
their methods of advancing the ball no
adequate defense can be perfected,
