Grinnell Foot Ball
Outlook is Dubious
GRINNELL, la.. 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
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. McGregor, are

Light Foot Ball Schedule at Local
School for This Year.
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
October 24-Tarkto college at Omaha.
October 31 York college at York.
November 13 Cottier university at
November 26 Hastings college et Hast
ings. Manager Weinberg Is trying to schedule
a game for November 6. making a total
ot seven games.

have been laboring hard on the foot ball
field at the school grounds for a little
over a week and the results are a rgeat
deal better than could ' be expected, or
were expected when the squad first came

)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.
The first game of the season will be
held on Crelghton field with Crelghton

reported to have a great team this year,
with an average weight of 160 pounds,
and they are talking about "doing
things" to the high school, but the
cadets, of course, don't agree with them
In the least.
The men that the coach is placing most
of his hope on for the first game are
all good In weight and speed s:l as a
unit they show more team work for the
first week of practice than last year's
team did for the first month. Team"
work ha been the echool's weak poi'J
for a number of years and it seems that
the Jinx is at laat broken.

lom achool this September, Is rounding
