Sept 19.-(Speclal.)-Foot ball practice has begun In earnest at Grlnntll with only four members of lost year's team out In suits. Munneko and Andrews are the only line men who have returned with the Intention of play ing this year. Norrls, who played end last year, will be kept out by old Injuries. Captain Witters, quarter, and Little, half, are the only survivors from last year's backfleld. The prospects, however, are fair for a fast and heady backfleld. Sutherland, the 1913 fullback. Intends to enroll, and will probably be worked at half. Barrett, who did good work on laat year's fresh men team. 1 the logical candidate for the other half, and with Little at full and Witters at quarter a very strong backfleld should be developed. Severelde, the star shortstop, and captain-elect of the base ball team, is being tried at quar ter and If he shows up well Witters may be shifted to end. Smalley, McLaughlin. and Macy ot last year's freshmen team j are canaiaates tor oacKneia positions. The outlook for the line Is far lees promising. Although there Is consider able material, the lark of experienced men la liable to prove a great handicap. Munneke and Andrews are trying Tor their old positions at guard and center. George Nelaon, a member of lost year's squad, should find a permanent berth either at renter or guard. Gould, Mat thew, Schwab and Dewey are promising candidates from laat year's freshman squad. Krneat Martin and Cross, two upper class men, with good high school records, are out In suits for the first time on the Grinnell field. Prelim, Mc Cleary, Turner, J. and P.

(Special.)-A de cided tendency toward th forward pass, and the presence ot Director Clyde Will- lams on the State field In direct and active charge of one of the two varsity squads which the coaches started to work with, these are the chief Items of news that developed with the beginning of train ing and practice for Ames foot ball this week. Director William and Coach Hubbard took the field Monday afternoon the min ute the Missouri Valley conference whistle blew for the opening of the foot ball year, and they had about forty men In war clothes. Williams' being on the field gave Cyclone foot ball stock a great boost The entire 1913 varsity lineup reported to the coaches Monday afternoon save the ends, who were Cowan and Tlernan, and Quarterback Brennan. Judging from the number, general clams, conformation and seal of ths near half hundred appe who are out for the varsity. It appear to the observer on the sidelines that about two-thirds of the old varsity would not wager a dim on absolute certainties with respect to Indefinite continuation on th varsity. Th old men of the line seem to have the most secure vocations. j Standing of Teams WE8TERN LEAGUE, Played, ... 132 ... 165 ... 151 ... 153 ... 157 ... 154 ... 153 ... 154 . Won. lost.

SIX GAMES FORUNI OF OMAHA Light Foot Ball Schedule at Local School for This Year. STAUT WORKOUTS ON MONDAY Effort Will Bo Made to Get Every Male Student at 'the School to Try Skill at Handling; the, Ptgakln. One of the llghtet schedules In the history of the school has been arranged by Manager Weinberg of the University of Omaha foot ball team. The schedule as now arranged calls for six games, two of which will be played In Omaha and the remaining out of town. No game will be played with Crelghton col lege or Wesleyan university thla season, although Manager Weinberg had an op portunity to schedule both of these con tests. The reason given by Coach Dow for not playing these team 1 that they vianted games too early In the season. As these teams are materially stronger than the University of Omaha the result haa often been such as to greatly weaken the University of Omaha squad for the rest of the season. Both Crelghton and Wesleyan start their practice a great deal earlier In the season and are In much better condition In the opening games than the Crimson and Red. Tentative Schedule. The tentative schedule Is as follows: October 3 Tsbor at Tabor, la. October 10 Central college at Central City. October 24-Tarkto college at Omaha. October 31 York college at York. November 13 Cottier university at Omaha. November 26 Hastings college et Hast ings. Manager Weinberg Is trying to schedule a game for November 6. making a total ot seven games.

Owing to the graduation of most all )of Inst year's stars, the chances of Omaha to drag down the championship ngnln looked very slim and the coach and playrs were feeling blue over It. But now after a week of hard and steady work everyone has changed his mind and all are working the harder because of the Increased enthusiasm.
