BRINGING UP FATHER
ON EVEOF BATTLE
Gustafson, Mainstay of In
dians' Eleven, Won't Line
Up Against Doane.
PESSIMISM HITS ROOTERS
"Big Gus has blood poisoning and
can't play against Doane!"
This was the announcement that
dropped' like a bombshell in the
Bellevue college training camp yes
terday and brought consternation . to
the hearts of the purple and gold
Big Gus, alias Waldemar Gustaf
son, "The Terrible Swede, for the
last four years has been one man up
on whom the coaches could rely.
Two minutes playing time in over
ree seasons is all uus nas lost, ami
that was in his first year. The one
hundred-eighty-five pound guard has
been a Hwer of defense and has
opened holes on the offense like a
battering ram. . His absence will
weaken greatly the Indian line to
morrow afternoon when Bellevue
meets Doane at Crete.
-Xoach Admits Defeat.
With Gus out of the game Coach
Benjamin plans a wholesale eleventh
hour shift of the forward line. Kin
nier, the veteran center, will be
moved to tackle, Picotte going from
half to center. Johns will go to left
guard, Allen and, Daugherty remain
ing on the .right, side- f .the line.
With a "line which has never played
together- before and with Williams
out of the. game still and a substitute
v taking his place at right end, Coach
Benjamin admits that Bellevue will
be lucky to hold Doane to two touch
downs. . So make matters worse, spirit in
the student body has sunk to a low
ebb. The project of the rooters go
ing to Doane in a body, which was
hailed with so much enthusiasm last
week, now seems to be on the point
of being - dropped for lack of the
thirty people necessary to get a spe
cial car on the Burlington.
All told, Bellevue's chances of
beating Doane this year, which
looked so bright two weeks ago, have
sunk to the vanishing point.

MOSES. OUT WITH INJURIES
Lincoln,- Novv 22. (Special.)-An
other shift in the backfield is behig
considered by Coach Stewart, to add
speedy to the Husker backfield in the
game against Iowa university next
Saturday afternoon at Iowa City.
' Stewart,has determined to use both
Cook and'Caley as! halfbacks, as they
have shown the greatest ability at
ground gaining during the sesason
and are the fastest men on the squad.
Dobson. who has done splendid work.
is slated for one fullback, and Selzer,
who has played on the scrubs most
of the season, will be the other full
back. "Turp" Frank, a nalfback star of
the early Stiehm regime, lingered in
Lincoln this week to aid in whipping
the 'varsity into shape for Iowa and
incidentally furnished the sensation of
the practice' Tuesday night Frank
donned foot ball togs and contributed
some of the most thrilling runs seen
on Nebraska field this season. He tore
through the 'varsity with the Iowa
formations for long gains, but the
regulars finally solved the plays and
stopped him. Vic Halligan, another
Husker star, who has been helping
with the coaching all season, was
another in the scrubs' lineup last
night and he helped Frank to tear
things up for a while.
Moser Will Be Out.
Caley, Riddel and Moser were all
excused from scrimmage last night
as the result of injuries in the Kansas
game, but Dr. Stewart said that with
the possible exception of Moser, all
would be in splendid condition for
the Hawkeye battle.

Gibbons Boys May
Show Wares Here
Eddie Kane, representative of Mike
Gibbons, stopped over in Omaha yes
terday. Kane is paving the way for
a trip by Mike and his brother,
Tommy, to the Pacific coast.
The Gibbons boys will go through
Omaha December 9, and arrange
ments may be made for them, to give
an exhibition here.
Kane declares that the, reports from
St. Paul that Gibbons demanded the
cash amount of his guarantee before
he would enter the ring with Jack
Dillon, are somewhat off-color. He
explains that Harry Sherman orally
agreed to terms of a $10,000 guarantee
with an option of 35 per cent of the
gross receipts for Gibbson's share in
a match with Dillon. Later Gibbons,
Kane says, asked Sherman to put a
contract in writing and this caused
circulation of the report.
As a matter ot tact, Kane said,
"Gibbons got paid with a check and
didn't get it until Saturday, the day
of the bout, and didn't put it into the
bank until the tollowing Monday.

Peeves Iowa's Mentor.
MENDENHALL IS BACK
Iowa City, la., Nov. 22. (Special.)
Over confidence in the outcome of
the game with Nebraska is now the
chief fear of the Hawkeye coaching
staff for the Iowa varsity. The listless
showing which the regulars made
yesterday afternoon in their first
scrimmage of the week was such as
to call forth from Coach Jones a se
vere "bawling out" on the attitude
which the men seem to have taken.
In the end Jones dismissed his squad
from the field with a prayer that they
would be back today more inclined
to go in and dig.
The coach called the attention of
the men to the fact that the dope had
already been upset too many times
this year, and pointed out Hhat defeat
of Nebraska at the hands of Kansas
and the Iowa victory over Ames did
not mean that Hawkeye win over
the Cornhuskers would naturally fol
low. He urged them to fight through
out the game from first to last in a
manner which would show the best
possible ultimate result of ten long
weeks of practice.
N "Pep" Is Lacking.
Having failed to display proper
spirit and punch in scrimmage work
against the scrubs, Jones turned his
men to signal work, and the teams
put in a long drill on the lighted pon
tion of the field at the south end. The
afternoon saw several changes in line
up, mostly in the nature of substitu

Hawkeye supporters were jubilant
over the fact that Mendenhall, after
being incapacitated for more than
three weeks, got into scrimmage to

oning on the leg, is still in poor shape.
In the line Triplett and McKee alter

POST SEASON GAME TALK
Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 22. (Special .
Telegram.) Lincoln will not con
sider a post-season game to determine
the championship of the state with
the Omaha High school unless Coach
Mulligan guarantees Lincoln half of1
the gate receipts. Mulligan in his
challenge offered the Lincoln team
$150 to play there, but the authorities
will not consider such a proposition.
Under any circumstances the Lin
coln High school authorities will not
take tip the question of a post-season
game until after the North Platte
battle here next Saturday. Lincoln
expects to win, but North Platte has
a strong team and has made an im
pressive showing so far this season. '
"We expect to win, but a defeat
by North Platte would make a post- -season
game with Omaha unneces
sary," said Principal Newlon, , '
The athlete authorities held a meet
ing this morning to consider the
Mulligan challenge and mapped out
the line of action.
"Providing Omaha refuses to meet
us with a fair financial proposition, i
we are prepared to advance our
claims to the championship on the
basis of comparative score," said
Mr. Newlon. "Lincoln's record is bet
ter than Omaha, with a 20 to 3 defeat
of Beatrice and a larger score against .
Sioux Falls. If we play at all Omaha
must give us half the gate receipts."
