As a result of the foot bill came of last week the best team of the wtt must be sefrctod from the undefeated teams of the University of Chicago, University of Nebraska, the Michigan AgTlcultual college and Notre Uame. with the University of Mlchlgiin thrown In for good measure. Chicago Is undisputed hamplon of the "big nine" and the record, of the Ma roonc for the season Is probably the most Impressive recorded In the nine years of the present conference organization. Nebraska had the honor of defeating two hlg nine teams, three Missouri Val ley conference aggregations and the Has kell Indians. The Michigan Agglcs stand high be cause of the defeats administered to Wisconsin and Michigan. Notre Dame has standing because of the humiliation of two strong teams ot the east, and Michigan, ence defeated, Is entitled to a ptaea among the leaders because of Its final games In which three of the strong team ot the east were defeated. Whether some one of these five teams has the right to catlm the title of Amer ican champion Is capable of much dis cussion. Ksch of the team ot the "big nine" conference met defeat by Chicago except Ohio State, with which no game was scheduled. Each name was a decisive and clear-cut demonstration of Chicago's superiority with the possible exception ot the Purdue match. Tha Purdue-Chicago game left some- doubt In the mlads of the critics whether tho Maroons were inherently the stronger, but other Pur due games dispelled this doubt. Last place in thv"blg nine" unques tionably Is Northwestern's, with Ohio State and Indiana a short discussion above the cellar champions. Minnesota and Purdue both fled the claim to sec ond place, while Wisconsin protests vehemently against being relegated to fourth. Jn the Missouri Valley, Nebraska's honors are shared by Missouri, unde feated In the games of the conference. The, teams have an almost equal stand ing against the two teams met la common, Kansas and Ames. Missouri did not play well up to the defeat by Illinois. After that the student feedy rushed to the support of the eleven and Umi coach were able to turn out one of the beat of Missouri elevens. The defeat of Kansas In the final game makes the Mlceri season a success, Ten without equalling Missouri in valley swot. Missouri's valley victories were over Ami. Drake. Washington and Kan as. In the last three games tha team was not scored against. Nebraska, de feated Kansas Agricultural college, Kan sas university and Ames.

POSSIBLY STRONGEST IN "WEST Many Snppiirtrr of Nebraska Be lleve Cornliriskern llarf Revealed Better Form Than Any Western Eleven. II Fit ISO 8. ItllMUII. By decisively defeating Iowa yester day afternoon Nebraska brought to a fitting culmination a season that Is per haps the most successful In the history of the school. At least It Is the most gratifying for the rooters and supporters because It Is a' team that Is almost a new team and a team that went into at least two battles with doubt of victory stamped on Its record. There can be little doubt that Nebraska cleanly estab lished Its right to the Missouri valley championship honor, even though Mis souri did defeat all the Missouri valley teams that it met this season. Missouri lost ono game, the game with Illinois. The Illtnl defeated the Missouri vnlley eleven conclusively. Nebraska did not lose a game, either to conference) members or to teams outside the confer ence. Nebraska defeated two teams In the western conference, the conference In whtch Illinois plays, and both teams are superior to Illinois. Minnesota was defeated by the Cornhuskers and the Gophers failed to cross the goal line. .Iowa was defeated yesterday and the Hawkeyrs likewise failed to cross the Nebraska goal. As Illinois received the worst beating she received during the season at the hands bf tho Gophers, it .does not appear reasonable that Mis sour! could defeat the Cornhuskers. Missouri barely defeated the Jayhawk' era yesterday by a lone drop kick. A week ago Nebraska Invaded McCook field and walked away with a 9-to-0 victory tucked under her arm, One touchdown and a place kick netted tho nine points. A touchdown Is always regarded as con clusive evidence of superiority, even whan a goal from the field Is not, because a goal from tho field only demonstrates tho skill and prowess ot one Individual player and does not represent the com bined efforts of a foot ball scoring ma chine. Thus, If Missouri could not In reality score against Kansas and Ne braska could and did, It points clearly to the superiority of the Cpmhuskcf warriors, Million rt'a Standing?, The games with Ames point to little Both Missouri and Nebraska defeated the Iowa farmers and both scored three touchdowns. Ames, In turn, scored ona touchdown against both Nebraska, and Missouri. The Ames games can be ellm Inated from the records a Illustrating any superiority ot Nebraska, but the Kansas game must not be omitted and the western conference games by both teams furnish additional proof of the Cornhuskers' claim to the championship) honor. I.nnk tn Western Honors. But many a Cornhusker rooter, In fact most ot them, Is not content to let mat ters rest at that point- It would be a difficult proposition to discover a Corn- Curling Irons Disc Stoves Library Lamps Boudoir Lamps Dryers Flat Irons cant Keep IN THi. PULLMAN? j YOU'LL, MAMETo That Pooch out fN I 1 I Ml Mil I MAli f -t I I V I I I huskor supporter who does not believe the Missouri Valley conference honor Is conceded to Nebraska by everybody. And It wdtild be Just as difficult a proposition to find a Cornhusker who does not flrm'y believe, and Is willing to back that be lief up by strong argument, that the western honors 'belong to Nebraska. Of courso Chicago will bo given the Western conference honor, but there are other teams In tho west which, In the opinion of many eminent foot ball ex ports, are faster than Btagg's proteges. Notre Dame and the Michigan Aggies can Insert their claim to supremacy of the entlro west and they have records on which to base their assertions. But above all rests the honors that Nebraska haa won this year. Decisive defeats ot all opponents. Including Minnesota and Iowa and Kansas. The Michigan Aggies barely beat Wisconsin, while Wisconsin was soundly trounced by Minnesota, who In turn was badly beaten by Nebraska. Notre Dame has playod no one by which a comparative score ot any kind may be compiled. Its strength Is merely a guesi, but those who have seen the Catholics play do not believe that they could beat either Chicago or Minnesota or Ne braska. From every standpoint Nebraska has the atronrgst claim to western supremacy and, although It has never been the cus tom to proclaim a western champion be yond the western conference champion, there can be little doubt that Nebraska Is supreme In the west. Carlisle Reds Win Over Syracuse in a Spectacular Game SrilACUSE, N. Y., Nov. 23. The Car Halo Indians defeated Syracuse In the Archbold sttidium yesterday, S5to27. The game was one ot the most spectacular seen here. All through the game the two elevens took turns in scoring. During the first three minutes of play Castle, the Orange halfback, broke away from tho Indians on an end-run and gained sixty yards for the first touch down. By straight rushing two touch downs were scored for Carlisle In the first quarter, and Carlo w kicked both goals. Halfback Brasklln also accounted for two ot the Indians' touchdowns later In the game. Toward the end of the second quarter, Syracuse carried the ball from their own forty-yard Una over for a touchdown, Kinsley, right halfback, mak ing the last run for twenty yards. For tho Indians, Guy on scored a touch down In the final period and Halfback Qarlow kicked the goal. Quarterback Johnson made a thirty-yard run through a broken field for Syracuse's last touch down. Halfback Castlo kicked the goat Cornhusks O'er 100 university catfts ushered at the game, but they forgot all about ushering when the game started and many a delayed spectator was compelled to find his own seat- The solid bank of black and old gold In the south stands was almost as heavy as the scarlet and red In the north. There were several hundred Iowans present and they cneereo. long ana iura at th hrlnnlnir of. the contest up until the last quarter, but In the last quarter the ardor or me itawarye bwwiwi visibly and audibly dampened when Purdy annexea me secona pmnw. Ammerman and Oalletley, the Ne braska cheer leaders, fairly exuberated enthusiasm and the latest tango steps when they called upon all loyal rooters to give the Nebraska songs and yells. When Rutherford rushed over for the first touchdown the Nebraska supporters threw their hats In the air, yelled them selves hoarse, hugged other Nebraska men and sometimes hugged Nebraska girls. The Crelghton foot ball team was on hand to seo how Nebraska handed the Hawkeyes a package. Coach Miller fig urea that Crelghton will profit by th experience and do likewise with South Dakota. Considerable money changed hands on the contest. One pool of 11.300, put up by Iowa stockmen, was covered by a bunch ot Omaha men and when the game was over the Iowa stockmen were nowhere to be seetu Captain Purdy gambled 1300 of his own money, for which he labored long and faithfully last summer, on the result Purdy said Nebraska would "eat em up" and Nebraska did as he said for ho was the captain. Superintendent draff and Prof. C. E. Reed, ot the high school, attended the game to see Halllgan. the North Platte wonder. If all the North Platte boys are like Halllgan, It looks bad for Omaha Thanksgiving day, Nebraska's big band furnished the brass harmony for the occasion and marched around the field to display Its strength between the halves. The Lin coln High school band was also present nnd Dlayed almost as good as did the large university band. Captain Purdy will be married as soon as the school term Is over next spring, or perhaps sooner, lie will wea miss itacnei Kllpatrick of Beatrice. Two years ago, the day ot the Michigan contest. Purdy secured Miss KUpatrlck's consent to the union, but it was not to d unui aner his senior year. "Jumbo" Stiehm was the most excited Individual on the field. The tall Ne braska mentor paced up and down the side lines, tearing hla hat and his hair during the third quarter, when Iowa took a spurt, but during the last quarter he was a solid mass of smllea. Even his feet seemed to smile and lie did dance up and down when a Cornhusker ra&de a Mtiirtloaal fata. I I I , I I I STATE HIGH TITLE CLEARING Question of Which School Deserves Honors Being Settled.

The state high school championship horizon Is clearing and the tangle In which a number of the schools of the state have been Involved, each claiming the title, Is disappearing as a result ot this week's gridiron contests. Omaha will be In a position to clinch the "rag" it the local lads succeed. In defeating North Platte on Thanksgiving. Since the defeat ot Aurora by Hastings Friday the former city Is out of the run ning and strengthens Omaha's claim. A post-season game with Aurora, If both the teams completed the remainder of the schedule with no defeats, has been considered for some time by tho local team as a means of straightening out the tangle, and the defeat ot Aurora makes such a game unnecessary. Another of the strong up-state teams whose previously bright hopes for the championship were killed Friday Is Oothenberg, for North Platte succeeded In obtaining a hard victory over this team by a 3 to 0 score. Before this de feat Oothenberg had played a clean schedule and was claiming tho western championship. Omaha's only formidable opposing: claimant is Kearney, as a result. North Platte, however, succeeded In holding Kearney to a tied score early in. the sea son and If Omaha defeats the former next Thursday, Kearney will be eliminated and the championship will go to the local team. Tho high school team will be In first class condition Thanksgiving day and an excellent contest Is anticipated. Tho lo cal warriors are fully assured ot the Im portance of the event of the struggle as bearing on the championship and are preparing to bring every ounce of strength Into play In an endeavor to cop the title.

Tho team the Annapolis coaches put In at the start was composed largely of substitutes, and several of the varsity men did not don foot ball clothes, but sat on the coaching bench watching the strugsls. Those of the regulars who were allowed to participate In the gamo showed -well, though at times the New Yorkers made consistent gains for first downs by plays directed at tackle. . New York made several desperate at tempts to score. On one occasion they essayed a placement goal from the forty-five-yard line.
