tincoln, Nov. 15. (Special.) The
first practice under favorable weather
condition this afternoon brought a
general speeding up of the Husken
in preparation for the game with the
University of Kansas next Saturday
afternoon. Dr. Stewart took his
hours and a half, hictuding fifty min
utes of hard scrimmage against the
freshmen. v
The Husker mentor did not indi
cate whether he was satisfied with

Ames Preparing
To Entertain 15,000
Foot Ball Rooters
Ames, Ia Nov. 15. (Special.)
Carpenters were put to work yester
day beneath the concrete stands build
ing wooden sectins. which will com
plete a circle of stands around the
foot ball gridiron. The new bleachers
will be put around the ends. Director
Williams says his ticket office will
keep the carpenters 3,000 seats ahead
of the sales in the gymnasium office,
so that he will have on the morning
of the game 3,000 seats for fans .who
- . , , , , ... . , Ul UtV U,UW Kail IUI 111 ,iV
buried the freshmen-with a series of wj come m at the ast minute with
out previous reservations.
The weather prophets are the scien
tists most in demand on this campus
noted for its scientists, right 'now.
The gymnasium ticket office has been
taking counsel with the weather prog
nostics since "Saturday's frigid storm,
in which the Morningside game was
played, seeking symptoms of a re
turn to Indian summer. The south
wind this morning had a most cheer
ing effect and Director Williams pre
dicted ideal climatic conditions by
Saturday. The condition of the roads
will determine how close V the 15,
000 mark the crowd will approach, for
scores of- motor parties fyrni all over
the state have plans tor the game.
Director Kelloes' of Iowa U re
ported to Ames that his batch of 800
seats is going rapidly. Two sporting
goods houses in Des Moines have re
ceived 44(1 chairs for the game, and
this morning a Fort Dodge alumnus
of the state university ordered 100
tickets for a party he will bring.
The coaches gave their regular
Monday night lecture to the team,
after a signal drill out on the froxen
arctic field. Scrimmage may not start
today on account of the ice. The
lineup Ames will send against Iowa is
a problem in which convalescence of
cripples will have the say in solving.
The sick men are coining around, but
can they get in form?
5 Dobson Injured,
More hard luck visited the Husker
squad during the short scrimmage
last night. Paul Dobson, whose punt
ing has been a material factor in the
Nebraska game, was thrown heavily
andbadly bruised during the scrim
mage. Dobson will be in shape for
the Saturday game, although not ill
the topnotch condition expected. f
The Husker squad is much put otrt
bv the attitude shown by Missouri
Valley scribes in charging the Ne
braska warriors with chestiness. The
members of the team resent the in-
-icrence contained in several press ac
counts that the isio eleven is living
on the reputation of the past four
seasons antintend to show next Sat
urday there is no question .where the
championship of the Missouri Valley
conference rightfully belongs, '
Develop Open Play,
f Dr, Stdwart continued his drill on
pen plays and the team is rapidly
developing an offense which will be
more formidable than any flashed by
the Huskera so far this season. Gar
diner and Captain Corey will probab
ly start the jrame next Saturday at
ends, with Shaw and Cameron at
tackles, Moser back at center, Caley,
Cook, Dobson and Riddel! in the
backf ield. .-" This combination has oro-
duced better results than any so far
this season and all of the men are in
better condition than before any
game. - i .
' Kansas to Use Pass, '
; The Jayhawker rooters are show
ing a tot of confidence, and from the
: Lawrece camp comes the news that
Ua . T 1. 1 ...... .-II.. . . -
defeat the Husker. Coach Olcott
bases his hopes on the splendid show
ing which the Jayhawkera have made
with the forward pass. Olcott al
ways was well satisfied with the de
fensive play of his team and now that
he has developed an offense; he feels
that it will be a comparatively easy
trick to turn." ' .'.:. ' '
. Kansas is due to arrive in Lincoln
early, Saturday morning on a special
train over the Union Pacific Olcott
may change his plans and bring his
Sauad to Lincoln Frirlav nnnn in nr.
der to allow his players a chance lot
a workout nere. - i . , i
- Rooters Mold Back. -Nebraska
rooters are displaying
some hesitancy in betting their
money probably due to the fact that
the last garhe in which the Huskers
played the Nebraska play was far
from satisfactory. Kansas students
are demanding odds, but Nebraskans
regard it as an even bet and no
money will be placed except on this
basis. -
Athletic Manager Reed, just back
from a short honeymoon trip, reports
- the sale of seats is going big. Reed
expects a capacity crowd for the
Kansas game and the advance sales
seem to justify his prediction. The
Nebraska manager was married to
Miss Florence Angle, of this city, a
member of the Kappa Alpha Theta
sorority, and one of the most popu
lar girls in the university. ,.

Mann How to Walk
' Leslie Mann,' member of the Bos
toiyBraves when they won the world's
series in : 1914 and now connected
with the Chicago Cubs, may be able
to cut the bases in the big leagues,
but he can't cut the corners in Omaha.
Getting off -a street car at Sixteenth

walking across the corner. . Only af
ter he was ' threatened with arrest
would he retrace his steps and walk
around the corner as the cop ordered.

Low Scores Tighten
The Foot Ball Race
New York, Nov. 15. Low scores in
the foot ball games of last week
caused a tightening in the race for
both team and individual point hon
ors among the leading elevens of the
east and adjacent sections. Two
southern teams, Georgia Technical
with 366 and Vanderbilt with 308,
still head the list as premier scor
ing machines, with Pennsylvania
State, Syracuse and Michigan close
ly grouped for trailing honors. Brown,
Georgetown, Pittsburgh and Notre
Dame are-not far in the rear.
Oliphant-of the Army and Maul
betscn of Michigan are the leaders
in the struggle for individual honors,
the West Point player having ninety
six points to his credit and the Wol
verine ninety-five.

ers and clubs were in effect rejected

ally released players to sign immedi
ately; allowing traveling expenses to

Bellevue Plans for '
Annual Battle With
The Doane Warriors
': vi.-5' . ' i t ':'r' '
The game with Doane on Novem
ber 24 is the one absorbing activity
at Bellevue college this week. , "On
to Doane I" cry the rotters. "On to
Doane I" cry the alumni. Coach Ben
jamin and the foot bal team are doing
their best to respond and are putting
in every minute to prepare for the
big contest of the year. ..
When Wesleyan, Hastings, Bellevue
and Doane were th "big four" in N
braska athletics, the Bellevue-Doane
game was the classic of Nebraska foot
ball. Iln recent years with the growth
of the state university this game has
lessened in importance, but the fact'
that it still is one of the big games
of the season is attested by the howl
that arose from Bellevue and the
Doane alumni three years ago when
the game for "that season was can
celled. Bellevue has not defeated Doane
since the historic game in the fall of
1911, when Guy Moose drop-kicked
Bellevue to victory from the thirty-eight-yard
line and Bellevue won, 3
to 0. Last year BeUevue7 held Doane
to two touchdowns when the dope
had Bellevue down for a 30 to 0 de
feat. This year Bellevaue On its rec
ord has evidently the bestc hance
for some time to win a victory over
its ancient rivals.
