, Giants Confident.
? On Board Giants' Special Train,
Oct 12. No more confident ball club
ever sallied forth to battle than the
New York Giant today, enroute to
Chicago for the fifth game of their
world's championship series with the
White Sox. Having evened the count
at two, all the National league cham
pions were convinced that they had
only to continue playing at the same
speed they developed in the two
games at New York to overcome their
American league foemen, and: they
felt not the slightest doubt on that
Do Not Underrate Sox.
' Yet the Giants carefully resisted
any temptation to prophesy a com
plete triumph .within; the next two
playing days. They were frank to
confess that they regard the White
Sox as already beaten, but they do
not display the slightest tendency to
underrate their opponents. They
expressed a belief that Manager Row
land of the White Sox will almost
certainly start Ed Cicotte, of shine
jball fame, against them in tomorrow's
engagement at Comiskey park, and
'another gruelling contest in which
the "breaks" in the luck would prob
"ablv decide the issue. ' -
! they also predicted that Harry
(Slim) Saliee will lead the New York
club into action in the fifth game
' of the series and the third to be
ntiverf in Chiciffo. and that he will
be even more effective against the
White Sox than he was last Saturday,
when he held the American leaguers
to seven hits, while yielding a 2 to
1 decision to ucotte, -

AH the Giant ptayers except Lew

he was ab'e to carry his own hand
baetraee. McCrrty announced that
'while he probably will be unable to
. catch another garnet this year, tie
"will be ready within a couple of days
to resume play as a cinch hitter.

say for publication beyond the mere
statement that he never had lost faith
in his champions and that he now re
fards their chances of winning the
ase ball championship of the world
; .better than ever.
Sox Glad to Get Home.
On Board the Sox Special Train.
Oct 12. The Chicago White Sax.
. having lost their edge on the world's
series by dropping two games to the
New York Giants, are hurrying west
-today to meet the Polo grounders on
. Lomiskey park, where the American
leaguers hope to come out in front
again. The Sox were none too happy
a lot as they contemplated eighteen
consecutive innings of play without
scoring a run against the Giants on
Jhe Polo grounds. - -
; "Well Start Again In Chicago."
"We simply could not hit." said
Chick Gandil. "If yoa can't hit, you
can't win. We will start again in
Chicago. B niton pitched the best
game so far against us. We have
hit better nitchera than Schuoo."
s Some of the Sox players complained
that the Giants ronehed them as they
'went into second base, and said that
if the New Yorkers were looking for
;trouble they would find it before the
series waa over. Manager Rowland
plans to uncover "Reb" Russell
against the Giants on Saturday. Ci
cotte says he is ready to go on the

FIRST JIG GAME
Clash With Hawkeyes Today
Will Give Nebraska Follow
ers Line on Stewart's
1917 Eleven. ,
By FRED S. HUNTER.
Nebraska's strong and sturdy Corn
buskers start today on their 1917
gridiron campaign, which it is hoped
will bring the western foot ball cham
pionship to the golden rod state. '
The Cornhuskers today play the
first of the series of six "big5 games.
This clash is with Iowa university
Uon Nebraska field at Lincoln.
Prospects for success on the grid
iron have never been more brilliant
at the Husker institution. Despite the
fact that many veterans of the 1916
team are gone, indications are that
Nebraska will have the greatest
eleven in the history of the school.
New material has made almost every
tiosition on the team stronger than
ast year. v
Last Saturday,' the Huskers wal
loped Nebraska Wesleyan, 100 to 0.
It was the third largest score, ever
recorded by a Nebraska eleven and
it was accomplished without the aid
of the mart who gives promise of be
ing the individual star of this year's
Four New Stars. ' -
Four new men of exceptional grid
iron talent and ability are largely re
sponsible for the optimism in the
Cornhasker camp, .They-, sret Wil-

It was Schellenberg who was the
big factor in running up the century
count on Wesleyan. This young
giant, a powerful line plunger, as well
as a brilliant open field runner and s
10.2 man, carried the. ball almost at
will against." Wesleyan. Foot ball
fans, who saw the game, thought an
other Chamberlain had been turned
loose on Nebraska field.
The achievement of a 100 to 0 score
is remarkable in itself, but it is all
the more remarkable, because it was
done without Hal McMahon. And
McMahon is heralded as the best of
this quartet of new stars. , He is said
to be one of the best open field men
Nebraska ever had. He also is said
to possess great driving power and
is thus a dangerous line plunger! It
is upon McMahon that Nebraska's
aerial attack largely depends, as his
accuracy with the pigskin is deadly.
What, then, could the Cornhuskers
have done to Wesleyan had McMa
hon been in the game, Nebraska fol
The game today with Iowa will give
Husker fans a real opportunity to es
timate the worth of their idols. Iowa
is a Western conference team, a team
which ranks above Nebraska in so
far as the conference of which it is
a part, is concerned. Nebraska has
an edge over the Hawkeyes in the
number of victories gained in battles
between the, rival schools, but Iowa
always has a team which puts up a
stubbocn contest and if the Huskers
win by any appreciable margin at all,
it is conclusive evidence tney art tne
The Cornhuskers probably will
show little more than straight foot
ball today unless, the Hawkeyes
threaten to edge out a victory. Ne
braska has two stiffer games just
ahead, the conflicts with Notre Dame
next Saturday and Michigan two
weeks from today. Even though
atraight foot ball is the program,
however, today's clash will give the
tans an opportunity to see ju

Beady for Tray With
Lincoln, Oct 12. (Special) The
Cornhusker foot : ball squad, with
seven men in the hospital after the
game with Wesleyan last Saturday,
has rounded into superb physical
shape for, the annual battle with the
University of Iowa Saturday after
noon on Nebraska field and should
give the Hawkeyes a sound trouncing.
With McMahon, the star backfield
reoruit who was out of the game last
Saturday because of injuries, back in
the lineup for the final two practices,
the last of the hospital squad has re
ported. Dr. E. J. Stewart, the head coach,
?irofesses to be mightily concerned
or fear the Huskers will become
overconfident. He expects a gruelling
battle with the Hawkeyes, for the in
formation which the Nebraska mentor
has received indicates that Coach
Jones has a squad which is far supe
rior to the eleven Nebraska tussled
with last year. There appears to be
some basis for his fears, however.
Two teams always play their strong
est, game against Nebraska the Jay
hawkers and the Hawkeyes. Only a
few years ago one of the 'Strongest
elevens ever representing the Husk
ers journeyed to IowatCity to meet
a supposedly, weak Iov.a team ad
only escaped a licking by Vic Halli
gan a trusty .toe. t
Plenty of Dash. ;
1 The dash and spirit of Cornhusker
foot ball elevens, which was so sadly
wanting in the 1916 eleven, has char
acterized the entire week's preparS
tions for Iowa, however. McMahon
came back into the lineup Wednes
day night and signaled his return by
providing a series of thrills for the
bleachentes when he raced around
the freshmen wings for two long runs
of fifty, yards each and each netting
a touchdown. Cornhusker rooters are
nearly agreed that McMahon has the
making of a wonderful foot ball play
erperhaps speedier than the mighty
Chamberlain and a more baffling open
field runner. Barring injuries, .the no
tion prevails here pretty strong that
the former Lincoln High school lad
will prove himself one of the great
foot ball players in the country be
fore the 1917 season is over.
Stewart'- freshmen recruits means
the possible retirement of two of last
years regulars to the second string
or at least alternating with them. It
is quite likely that Stewart will start
the game 'Saturday with McMahon
and Shellenberg as halfbacks, and
Dobson and Kellogg as fullbacks.
Dobson is the only one of the three
backfield men from last year. He
will be 'relied upon for the forward
passing and for a large share of the
punting, although Munn has shown
great ability along these lines and
may be used to do the kicking. The
backfield combination, however,
should prove to be the greatest a

The football warriors from Central

But Cenetral got a start after the first
five minutes of play and then it was

Maxwell was Central s star and par

Coyle of Creighton was the main

that counted heavily against them.

Smith started the second quarter
with a ten-yard dash followed by a
long pass. The ball seesawed back
and forth, until Smith went over the
line on a forward pass from Maxwell.
By means ot line bucking and end
runs Central scored another touchdown.
In the second half Omaha resorted
to more ooen field work using end

favorites with the Omaha fans, who
have suddenl" switched from their
original hopefuls, the Sox, to the lads
from Manhattan Island.
When the big series opened Omaha
fans all were with the Pale Hose,
largely because of Comiskey's wide

Sox are westerners. When Rowland's
troupe carried off the first two games
the odds sailed a mile high in Omaha,
