riors; Howarth Through
Line for Touchdown.
Ltncoln, Neb., Nov. 16. (Special
Telegram) Nebraska triumphed
over her ancient rivals, the Jay
hawkers, here this afternoon in the
annual grdiron battle between the
two institutions by the decisive
score of 20 to 0.
The score fairly represents the
relative merits of the elevens. The
Husker eleven played a smashing
game of football and at no time
were the Jayhawkers dangerous.
A drizzling rain, following a
heavy, pour during the night, con
verted the field into a sea of grimy
mud, but the Huskers proved to
be splendid mud horses and slashed
their way through the Kansas line
for consistant gains.
Howard, Hubbel, Swanhon and
Jobes played scintillating foot ball
in advancing the oval while the
Nebraska line was a stonewall in
the Husker triumph.
Howarth Proves Star.
In addition to opening big holes
for the Husker backs, the line stop
ped all of the Kansas players in
their tracks and the Jayhawkers
failed to negotiate a single first
down during the game.
To Howarth belongs the major
laurels. His return of punts was
the best seen in many years on a
Nebraska field. It was home-coming
for the Huskers but the rain
cut in on the crowd and less than
3,000 saw the game.
The Huskers carried the fight to
Kansas territory immediately on the
opening of the game.
During the first quarter the ball
was in Jayhawkers' territory prac
tically all of the time, with a fiee
exchange of punts saving the Kan
First Points on Safety.
In the second period the Huskers
smashed their way to the Kansas
three-yard line by straight foot ball
but were set balk by a penalty and
lost a chance to scbre. Then Bunn,
twice balked in an attempt to punt
because of poor passes from Central,
was forced to down the ball back
of his own goal line for a safety,
giving the Huskers their first two
points. At the opening of the third
period, Nebraska got the ball in
Kansas territory on an exchange of
punts and began a straight march
for a touchdown.
Howarth, who played a dashing
game in returning punts, seldom
failing to bring them back less than
15 to 20 yards, sprinted around the
end on a double pass and over the
goal line. He stepped out of
bounds on the Kansas five-yard line
and the ball was called back to
there, but Jobes drove over on a
The next two touchdows were
on straight foot ball, wittt Swanson,
Jobes Reynolds and Lantz always
good for 3 to 5 yards. Nebraska
scored the second touchdown on
the third period and the final touch
down in the final period.

Many believe that the failure of
the mat artists as boxers was main
ly due to the fact that they were
muscle bound and could not get the
free action so necessary in the ring.
Wrestlers in glove contests were
usually unable to judge distance
correctly, for the simple reason that
during mat tussels they were near
ly always clinching with their op
ponents. Wrestlers are as a rule stronger
than boxers, but strength is not al
ways prominent in the makeup of
a successful boxer. He must know
how and when to put steam behind
his blows. Footwork also is an im
portant factor in ring contests,
wrestlers, as a rule, are ponderous
Stecher, however, firmly believes
that he has all the qualifications of
a boxer. The grappler has been
watching with great interest the
boxing bouts held at the Great
Lakes and he has studied how each
boxer handles himself. Globe-Democrat.
