The Gridiron.
That the 'varsity team expected too
easy a victory with Wesleyan last Sat
urday was clearly demonstrated in
tile game played. The whole eleven
went upon the ground feeling confi
dent, and as a result the game was
slow and ragged during the first half.
Of course VWesleyan'.s style of play1
contributed in a large measure to this.
The halvef were but fifteen minutes
in length and the visiting team know
ing there was no chance of their scor
ing played for time. And although
no direct charges can be made, it ap-
t'ared at the tiute as if the officials
abetted this. Several times in the
game the play was not permitted to
go on, although time had not been
called by eithercaptain. Only during
the last five or six minutes did the -'varsity
play their accustomed game:
and considering all tiie time wasted
there was not really more than this
amount in the whole of the second,
during which the play was going on.
For, the home team then to score
eleven points in this time shows the
possibilities of the team. The prac
tice this week has leen quickened, and
the individual work lias been char
acterized by more dash than formerly.
To play, a quick, snappy game the
players must play a fierce game. By
this is not meant mean or question,
able playing, but the hardest kind of
playing the members can put forth.
Each play should be made as if it were
the last one of the half; and when a
man interferes he should block hard,
and long, and low.
Tiiere is one particular which is yet
to lie seen of the 'varsity team, and
that is their work on the kick-off.
Last year the eleven was weak in get
ting down the field on the kick-off
and downing the ball immediately.
Too often the opposing team lias
blocked up and carried the ball back
for fifteen or twenty yards. On thc
other hand weakness has been shown
in receiving the ball on the kick-off
and returning it. The interference
did not form briskly enough, and the
men showed a tendency to let the
player catching the ball go by himself.
Whether this point lias been improved
upon this year or not is yet to lie seen.
So far in the Tarkio and Wesleyan
game, it did better, but this was no
true test. In the Ames game, it was
very weak in this regard: but there is
the extenuating circumstance of its
being an early game. The game with
Missouri will demonstrate fully
whether Nebraska get off clean and
swift in this opening play of t he
game. The return of Melford who will re
sume his place atcenter will strength
en the team vastly. So far no one
has been found able to fill the posi
that it has ever been at this period of
the season, but like many other
things, this can only le told by the
first league game.
Two 'years ago when Kansas de
feated Nebraska upon the home
grounds, it wrs thought that they
were in excellent condition, but just
at the last end the team became worn
out and Kansas pushed the ball along
at will making the winning touch
Who will play behind the line in
the Missouri game is not yet known.
Some of the candidates who showed
up well at the beginning have taken
a sort of mid-season "slump" and need
tuning up. Those who were behind
in the race at first are picking up and
indications, lead one to believve that
their chances are .is good if not better
at present than the others. They are
playing hard, fierce ball and their
work upon the defense Is cleaner and
safer. However, of all those trying
for positions, whoever gets the places,
one may be sure of having faster backs
all around this year than last. Dur
ing the former season there were not
enough men trying for the positions
behind the line to cause them to work.
This year no one lias a sure place, and
the team is strengthened and quite
evenly balanced. At present six of
the old line men are at work, and al
though some of the players have been
shifted into other positions, it lias
been done to strengthen the left side,
which was the weak one last year.
Benedict, on the left end, has been
replaced by Stringer, and he is now
trying behind the line where there is
a possibility of his playing in the com
ing games. The training at end in
going down the field on points has
done him much good for a place be
hind the line. The line is heavier
this year than last, considered as a
whole, the ends esjiecialiy. It was
found necessary to put heavy men in
these latter positions in order to meet
the Pennsylvania style of interference'
which is played by both Iowa and
Kansas. This consists of the guards
being drawn back witli the halves and
plunged into the line or thrown
around the ends in the interference.
This is an effective style of play, as is
shown in the game in which Iowa
licat Northwestern: but it is some
what of an open game, permitting line
men who arc quick to plunge through
and intercept it before it starts
Then, too, with quick, heavy ends and
tackles it can be smashed almost as
rapidly. Guards as a rule arc large
heavy men, and necessarily slow: so
when itcomes to running them around
the ends to head the interference, the
play will get off slow. It gives the
tackles a chance to lunge through lie
forc the block can be formed, and the
ends a chance to run in and down the
man with the ball, while he is wait-
tween the two and will be a good one.
Wesleyan, who fe ired she was not in
condition last Saturday, refused to
consider that game as the champion
ship game. As a result, the twentieth
of next month has leen settled upon
as the time.
A feature which has lieen a iart of
Nebraska's play before Is drop-kicking.
Tills counts five points and is very
handy when there is but halta min
ute to make twenty or thirty yards.
This has been developed this year and
now one may not think that it is only
to be seen upon eastern grounds. It
is the prettiest play of the whole game
and usually takes the lookers-on by
surprise. As easy as it may apiear,
however, it is probably the most diffi
cult, and together with goal-kicking,
takes endless practice and unlimited
care to bring the art to perfection.
Only on a quiet day can there be any
certainty about elther-

faculty of stirring up the guards and as having a LaFayette man as coach,
making them play harder and safer it appears, is incorrect. Missouri has
ball. The team is especially well
fitted out in the center for offensive
During the past few days the team
has been put through Iongerand more
arduous work. Heretofore the games
which have been played have been
merely fifteen and twenty minute
halves. But thirty-five minute halves
is an entirely different sort of thing.
Often times a team has played a strong
winning game up to the last five min
utes and then becoming exhausted?
has gone to pieces and lost the game.
An eleven in the qest condition should
gradually increase their work all
through the game, making swifter
and fiercer play until the climax is
reached just at the finish. It is said
