W. Camp Knows Nebraska Exists;
Puts "Halligan" on Third Team
For many a year Sir Walter Camp,
the opulent Oracle of the east who an
nually selects alleged All-American foot
ball teams and soma way or other gets
'em printed In Colliers' Weekly, has been
the butt of all of the Jokesmlths, paragra
phers and hidden of the west. Sir Walter
Camp has always been regarded aa good
as Henry Ford and William Jennings
Bryan as food for cutting and sarcastic
squibs. He baa always been good for
one laugh a year.
But Sir Walter has been cruelly mis
judged out bera In the west. Sir Walter's
heart Is In the right place and be means
well. It has been said by doubters and
sooffers that Walter Camp does know
the state of Nebraska Is In the United
States. But this is a rank Injustice to
the Intelligence of Mr. Camp, who la
perefectly aware Nebraska Is In the union
and who has nothing but the kindest feel
ings toward the state.
Mr. camp has this .year proved he
realises they grow and make foot ball
players In the Cornhusker stale. He
placed one of them at a tackle on his
third All-Am erl can team this year.

a reality. After the flag scrap Wednes

Thursday afternoon the ground was
broken snd the work la expected to be
