chiropractors In the state today. If there
was not n Oemand for them there would
not be so many, and It is for this reason
that we ask recognition," said Dr. Iee

resenting the Nebraska Chiropractic as

of osteopaths next woek to ask the lat
ter'a support in order to secure such rec
ognition. There are about fifty chiropractors In

Attention from All Hides.
A great many of the followers of fool
ball here. In this foot ball crasy town, be
lieve that the Haskell Indians are in a
class by themselves when It comes to a
demonstration of the great college spoil,
and It Is evident from the way the mem
bers of the "Rig Nino" -have been shower
Ing recognition upon the Kcdaklno, that
there are other people who believe that
at least. Haskell can furnish them a
practice game. Not that Haskell defeats
all comers, or could even boast of a
challenge against Harvard, aa did their
once big northern rival, the "Cornhusk
crs." Like to Pla Haskell.
Those In authority at Haskell know
very well why tlio members of the big
teams like to play Haskell. First, be
to use the Indians are, naturally and by
training, the best sportsmen In tho world.
The native American loves to a In, to be
sure, and puts forth every legitimate ef
fort to attain that enl. He la scrupulous
however, about his conduct to his oppo
nent, and he knows that the real victory
lies In putting forth bis best and hla all
Into the work before him. It has been
these characteristics which has won so
much honor for Haskell In the south,
where one would expect and dors find a
better attltudo toward athletics than In
the northern schools.
Indians fioort Plarhtem.
Haskell always fights to the finish,
even If It Is their finish. And It Is this
characteristic ot thn Indians that has
won them a place for the second time
on the Notre Dame schedule, a place
on Chicago's November schedule, and an
Invitation to meet both the universities
of Illinois and Indiana. Conflicting dates
compelled Manase- enn to drllne In
diana, but thn Illinois game is still a
possibility. It now s mis likely that
Haskell will add to this, one member
of thn Missouri conference.
Rasy Krama Ahead.
This with the southern games and a
Jew state contests will give lliuikeTl
a busy season. It stems likely that
only onn trip will be made t the south
this year. Tho distance is so great that
thn school authorities object to the day
or mine that the hoys would miss their
classes. Tho Texas A. M. game will
be played at tho Texas state fair at
I'allas. and this Is not a hnvd trip and
ncssltates but a half day's loss of school.
Oklahoma la still silent on another
game. Perhaps tho Sooner think thry
had better quit while their credit la good.
Haskell hope to finish the season with
Oklahoma, and It may be that the game
will be scheduled for either Itwrence or
Norninn, a step that will further mark
the return of the college, game to home
Tho big southern trip to Austin and
