OUTCLASSED BY HEAVY
Schulte's Featherweight Buried Under Avalanche of
Touchdowns; Schellenberg, Cook and McMahon Show
Old-Time Form and Srrfbther Invaders With Long
End Runs and Smashing Line Drives.
By FRED S. HUNTER.
Lincoln, Nov. 10. (Special Telegram.) Doc Stewart's
1917 Corahusker machine crashed its way to an easy victory
over the University of Missouri eleven here today.. The score
was 52 to 0.
The victory took the CoriAuskers one step toward the grid
iron championship of the Missouri Valley conference. Only
Kansas remains. The Husker attempts to snare the Jayhawk in
lis own den next Saturday. If successful, Nebraska once more
resumes leadership in the conference.
ttp.frs FIGHT TO END. Q,
The Cornhuskers outweighed, out
balanced and outplayed the Tigers,
but not for one minute did they out
game them, It was Nebraska's game
when the referee's first whistle start
ed hostilities, but Schulte's feather
weights made themselves known in
every Way. They battled against
.tremendous odds, but they battled;
they never cried for quarter, and, bat
tered, beaten and bruised as they
were, they were still there at the
One of the greatest displays of
gameness ever witnessed on Nebraska
field Missouri made in the final quar
ter. Hopelessly licked, they put their
shoulders. to the wall and fought.
And Nebraska failed to mark up a
single score in this period. Every
one of hte Huskers' 52 points were
made in the first three quarters.
Not only did they fight-the Husk
ers to a standstill in this final quarter,
hut they had a distinct edge on Stew
art's men. At one time toward the
end of the third quarter the Tigers
were on the six-yard line and threat
ening to score.
Lack of weight was a great handi
cap to the Tigers. Sdiulte'n paper
weights were outbalanced fully 20
pounds to the many by the huge
Long Runs Feature.
, Long runs by Elmer Schellenberg
and Johnny Cook were the principal
factors in the Cornhusker victory.
These sterling ground gainers reeled
off run after run. Tiger tacklers
seemed at loss, were totally unable to
fathom their peculiar style of running
and dazedly watched Schellte and
Johnny whizz by.
Cook tore off the longest run of the
game, k was an 81-yard sprit
through a broken, field. The eBatrice
lad gathered in a long punt on his own
19-yard line and with the assistance
of nifSy interference swept his way
through the entire lineup.
Schellio Starts Early.
Schellenberg got the game away to
a flying early in the first quarter,
with a 50-yard scamper down the field,
which put the ball on the Tigers 15
yard line and Hal McMahon finished
the deed with a 15-yard dash over the
goal line. This touchdown was the
beginning of the end for Missouri.
Away to a good start, Nebraska s
courage and confidence was at the
highest pitch and tSeamrtj men just
swept all before them until the last
quarter, when the Tigers made their
Nebraska looked like a rejuvenated
team. This may have been due to the
utter weakness of Missouri, hopeless
ly light and inexperienced.
Aside from the fact that Nebraska
won, the game was a disappointment
from the spectators' standpoint. The
game was slow and dragged all of the
time. Nebraska played the same
straight foot ball with no variations at
all and the usual lack of decision in
getting off plays was manifest
Munn's Long Kick.
Nebraska won the toss and chose
to defend the east goal. Munn's first
kickoff went outside and his second
attempt sailed straight and true over
the crossbar of the goal posts. The
ball-was brought out to the 20-yard
line and given to Missouri. The
Tigers made to ineffectual attempts to
pummel Nebraska's line, but gave it
up when that stone wall refused to
bulge and Punted. Cook ran Slusher's
punt to Missouri's 45-yard line. Schel
lenberg was good for eight yards to
start the ball rolling and Dobson
plougod through for first downs. Ne
braska was given a five-yard penalty
here and lost the ball when two for
ward passes were incomplete follow
ing two short line plunges. Stevens,
Missouri's midget quarterback, made
eight yards just to show the Huskers
it could be done, but this offensive
display was limited. Missouri kicked
on the next play. Slusher's boot
went to the Huskers' 2J-yard line.
After two short gains by Schellie and I
McMahon, Dobson punted.
, Try Aerial Game.
The Tigers changed tactics here
and resorted to the forward pass. A
long pass was thrown wildly. It sailed
straight at Cook. He intercepted it
a'nd was downed on Nebraska's 35
yard line. After making first downs,
Nebraska fumbled and Rider recov
ered the ball. Again Missouri tried
the forward pass and this time Dob-
son intercepted the throw. On the
very first play Schellenberg romPed
50 yards down field, scattering Tigers
here and there en route. He was
the period so as to be within striking
distance when the second quarter
opened. Schellenberg made the dis
tance in two plays. Munn again
kicked goal. Nebraska, 20; Missouri, 0.
McMahon, Schellenberg and Dob
son collaborated in the next touch
down. They marched down the field
and Dobby took it over on an end
run. Dobson tried to kick goal this
time and rnuffed it. Nebraska, 32;
Missouri, 0. ,
The Huskers made one more score
in the second quarter. Schellenberg
made a nice little run of 38 yarjs and
then made nine more. McMahon
lugged the ball 15 yards in a couple
of attempts, while Schellie rested,
after which Elmer scored the touch
down. Dobson's aim was better this
time and he kicked goal. Nebraska,
39; Missouri, 0.
Another Field Day.
The third quarter was another field
day for Nebraska. On the kickolf
Schellenberg stepped off 55 yards,
carrying the ball to Misosuri's 15-yard
line. Eight more and then over was
Scliellie's record. Kellogg took up
the goal kicking and missed. Ne
braska, 45; Missouri, 0.
Misouri's kickoff went to llubka on
Nebraska'! 35-yard line. McMahon
raced 22 yards around end. Nebraska
drew a 15-yard penalty so Kellogg
punted to Missouri's live-yard line.
Missouri tried to punt out of danger,
but Cook refused to have it. He ran
the punt back to Missouri's 15-yard
line. A tew line plunges Dy scneiien--berg,
et at, and then McMahon
bounced over the line. Cook kicked
goal Nebraska, 52; Misouri, 0.
That ended the scoring. From that
minute on the Tigers fought like wild
cats. They battled Nebraska to a
fare-you-well; they ever tried running
the ball themselves and toward the
latter part of this period advanced
the ball to Nebraska's six-yard lirre.
Kellogg punted clear to Missouri's
goal line. Taking the ball on the 20
yard mark, Missouri started Nebraska
folowers by starting a march up field.
Cross, a substitute, started things with
a 15-yard run. Stevens made a couple
of nifty charges and Cros made eight
more. Nebraska got so excited it
broke a few rules and it cost the
Huskers 15 yards. Marshall hit the
line for eight yards and the Huskers
got another 15-yard penalty. This
put the ball on the Huskers' six-yard
line with four downs to go. Three
times Missouri hit the line, but failed.
Nebraska's stonewall refused to give.
The Tigers tried a forward pass as a
last resort and Steven's pass was
true. But the Tiger waiting Over the
goal line dropped the pigskin and the
Tigers' only chance was gone.

finally pulled down by Collins on
his own 15-y rd line. McMahon took
it over on a wide end run on the next
play. The punt was wild so Nebraska
did not get a chance to kick goal.
Nebraska, 6; Missouri, 0.
' Munn's kickoff went to Missouri's
" 30-yard line. Slusher immediately
punted. Cook, probably inspired by
Schellenberg's example, caught the
punt and raced 81 yards through a
broken field for a touchdown. It was
a very nifty run. It scored a touch
down ajid removed one Missouri ath

Central City High
Defeats Wood River
Central City, Neb.. Nov. 10. (Spe
cial Telegram.) The local ' high
school defeated Wood River in a
gridiron battle here yesterday, 38 to
0. this bein the first time the Wood
River team was scored on this year.
Omaha university's basket ball quintet wants to play the
University of Nebraska and Drake.
Omaha uni is rated as a secondary college, but Manager
William Campen of the floor squad has big city ideas and works
on the theory that the local institution will always be secondary
unless it goes out of its class.
Campen has written to a score of
secondary colleges for games, and is
' finding that basket; ball prospects
are not brilliant at many schools.
Many reply that their squads have
"been so crippled that they will be
unable to organize this year.
Omaha uni is optimistic over its
floor prospects. With an early start,
Coach Burdick hopes to turn out
the best five of nippers in the his
tory of the school.
With 20 men out for practice
every time and with at least two
good teams among these recruits,
the coach sees victory for the fu
ture. As another sign of good luck the
Scarlet and Black varsity quintet
won its first game. They met the
local, recruiting officers' five and
won bv a score of 7 to 5.
The latest addition to the q
fled list is Ernie Clark who
connected with the seminary tefm
last season. Clark is the best guard
Burdick has. He is here and there
and everywhere, always with the
ball. Clark is above five feet eleven
and weighs 17S pounds. His weight,
height and speed combined with
a rapid mind will make him one of
' the season's stars.
Charles Marsh is holding down
center in a way that excludes com
petitors? The two Nicholson broth
ers, Clyde and Donald, are showing
speed and science at guard. Cohan
of last year's team is another man
"that Burdick counts on for guard.
The two who have distinguished
themselves as forwards so far are
Harold Clay and Howard Widemr.
Both of them are light and fast.
Others playing are James Smith,
Joe Goldstone, . William Campen,
In one of the fiercest combats staged on Creighton field in
many a moon, Coach Gill's Flickertai!3 from North Dakota van
quished the Creighton eleven, of 12 to 7 yesterday.
Blue and White followers aver that it should be otherwise,
basing their daiim on the assertion that the Omaha squad were
playing against 12 men. The alleged 12th was in the person of
the hVad linesman.

Ann Arbor, Mich., Nov 10. Michi
gan's powerful foot ball machine, with
Quarterback Weston as its super
ground gainer, rolled up a 42 to 0
score on Cornell here today. ;
Michigan simply shattered the weak
defense of the green Cornell eleven.
Except for a few flashes of successful
open play Cornell was almost as help
less on offensive as it was when the
Wolverine had the ball.
Quarterback Weston, the smallest
field general Michigan has ever had,

Q Be that as it may. the local team
received an awful jolt yesterday when
it rubbed shoulders against the Green
and White proteges of Gill. North
Dakota fought all through the game
with a persistence and dash that could
not be combated. The two teams
were about evenly matched, with the
edge in weight perhaps slightly in
fayor of the Flickertails.
Mullholland's stellar performance
for Creighton far eclipsed the work of
any other man on the gridiron. He
was Rood for yards unnumbered when
called upon to carry the ball which
was at least half the time, and his for
ward passing enabled the local crew
to carry the ball up the field only to
lose it on downs or on an intercepted
pass. Coyne and Morgan at the tackle
positions for Creighton played a bang
up game of foot ball, and were in the
game ever minute, fighting tooth and
nail to check the on-rushes of the
Helnikcy, Seed, Peterson and Ellin
sou starred for North Dakota. It was
Emerson who took the ball over for
the first score of the game. North Da
kota received the ball in the middle
of the field and a prettily evecuted
pass from Helnikcy to Seed netted
30 yards, followed by another from
Hehnkey to Ellison for 25 yards.
With the ball safely tucked under hi?
arm, the Green and White athlete
trotted across the goal line.
The second score came in the same
quarter when Seed blocked a punt by
Campbell on Creighton's 25-yard line,
and the 'ball rebounded from the
breast of Seed to the local's 8-yard
line, where Griffith fairly smothered
the ball and totally disabled Campbell
in his mad attempt to fall on it. The
Blue and White line fought desper
ately to prevent the Dakotans from
chalking up another touchdown, bui
Griffith and Hayncs and Henncmutli
advanced the ball yard by yard and on
the fourth down Hehnkey was fairly
thrown across the last white line by
Creighton's lone tally came in the
last period, as the result of a fumble
by Griffith and a desperate rally by
the locals. Hull recovered the fumble
on North Dakota's 20-yard line'and on
four successive plays by the nubeat
able Mullholland, the doughty little
half crashed over the line.
Mill's Men Start Fast.
The first half of the game was all
Creighton's, but the Dakotans came
back in the third and fuorth quarter?
and forced the locals to divide honors
Creighton won the toss and elected
to defend the north goal. Mullholland
dashed back with Hclmkey's kick for
25 yards. With the ball on Creigh
ton's 451yard line the Blue and White
began an irresistible march up the
field. Mullholland, Leahy and More
arty alternated in carrying the pig
skin for 15 yards and a forward pass
from Mullholland to Leahy netted 25
yards, followed by another flip to
Leahy for 10 yards. Morearty and
Leahy failed to make any appreciable:
headway and Creighton lost the ball
on downs on Dakota's one-yard line
Helmkey punted out of danger. Mor-
earty received the ball on the 30-yard
