"MUST BEAT MINN,"
The Feeling of Players and Enthu
siasts in Nebraska.
WRONG IDEA OF GOPHERS'WEIGHT
The Nebraska View of Rogen' C«*e
Lark of Enthusiasm in Min
All Nebraska lovers of sport have their
«yes on the Nebraska university football
team. The" feeling of the Lincoln play
ers and rooters is well shown in the fol
lowing paragraph from the Omaha World-
Oh, no, the fur won't fly when the prairie
flogs get after the gophers up at Minneapolis
next Saturday, will it? No, it won't fly, the
air will just be simply stuffed with hair,
Down In Lincoln these days, the one slogan
Is, "We must beat Minnesota!" That is what
Coach Booth is continually dinging Into the
•ars of the varsity eleven. He realizes, and
tells his men that it is going to be a megath
erium Job but still he claims that they are
•qual to it
Ea*r If You Know How.
The same paper,' in a "Minneapolis
■pedal" discusses the plays of the two
teams to some extent, having something to
•ay of the tackle back formation. The
writer draws the following conclusions:
Victory for Nebraska simply simmers down
to this. Has Nebraska a defense fast and
•ggressiYu enough to tear through those
giants and nip their play in the bud? For
that is the only stage of the game when it
can be effectively checked. Nebraska's men
are much lighter than Minnesota's, probably
twenty-five pounds to the man, and if a
mass play is ever permitted to get a start
a good substantial gain is a sure result. The
whole idea of defense against such a push
as Minnesota is to have them defeat them
eelves. Let a little man crawl right into a
mass play, low and hard, a few times and
you have taken the conceit clear out of
them, and you have changed the situation
from aggressor to defender. I have never
seen a big team yet, once checked, that did
not "lose form," that is, get rattled, ex
cited, and go up in the air.
He then passes to a discussion of Rog
ers' eligibility, of which he says:
Minnesota has a new addition to her foot
ball squad in the person of the famous Car
lisle end, Rogers. The hope is expressed that
Minnesota is not so unsportsmanlike as to
try to pluy a man that has already served
his four years. According to all the rules
of the game, Rogers is ineligible. Last year
he played on Carlisle, and even if his time
limit of four years was not up, the rule re
quiring a one year's residence should pre
vent his playing this fall.
It is not a question of Minnesota's winning
a strong man that is at stake, but it is the
question of western football's being robbed
of its pure amateur standing by letting a man
clearly ineligible take part in the game.
Minnesota's opponents should notify her at
once that the red man cannot take part In
their games. The east has decided the In
dian question long ago, and no Indian that
has served Carlisle four years would be
eligible on any eastern team, and certainly
the went has as high standards as the east.
The talk of the protesting of Rogers is
■aid here to have resulted from the refusal
of the football management at the univer
sity to allow a "syndicate" reporter to
watch secret practice. It is said the
young man was discovered on the field a
few evenings since when practice was
about to begin. He was, of course, asked
to leave, but protests. The management
■was firm, however. A few days later one
of the members of the "U" athletic board
received a letter from the young man
criticizing the board for allowing Rogers
to play. It is believed that he is re
sponsible for stirring the Lincoln men to
thoughts of protesting.
He Deserves to Come.
Rhyme and football seem to go to
gether at Lincoln. Yesterday The
Journal printed someching from the
pen of "Doc" Bixby. Here is something
from some "lesser light" who should be
furnished the price for the agony out of
which it was produced;

A Few "Fact»."
The Omaha Bee football man has gath
ered a lot of material from which he has
written a column of "stuff" for his paper
regarding the Minnesota football team as
viewed from Nebraska. He talks about
the great weight of Minnesota's team
for the present season, and cays that it
exceeds that of the team of a year ago.
"Every man save one is heavier," he says,
"That one is left halfback, where played
the mighty Van Valkenburg, who weighed
240 pounds and went insane regularly In
every game he played about the middle of
the second half. Then they always had
to lead Van away literally In chains, for
he always refused to leave the field. How
ever, as long as he played he was a ter

urday, at least In that syle of rooting that
may be called scientific, artistic or
rhythmic. The Nebraskans are going to
come In large numbers and all of them
will bring megaphones, for at Lincoln the
possession of a megaphone and he ability
to use it are regarded as quite essential
to secure high standing as a student.
Yet at a mass meeting at the University
of Minnesota chapel Saturday little enthu
siasm could be aroused, and at Saturday's
game the rooting was of a very mediocre
order. I may be ha he university students
are going to rely upon spontaneous out
bursts of applause to cheer their grid
iron heroes on to Victory this fall If so,
every student should look upon himself
as a self-constituted rooting leader and
keep things going next Saturday, or be

Lincoln, Neb., Oct. B.—Miserable
fumbling and poor punting proved to be
two of the vital weaknesses of the corn

lowa City, lowa, Oct. 8. —Training for
the hawkeye football squad is going on
this week with confidence. Though
fumbling and penalizing frequently lost
the ball for lowa and the new men failed
at times to get into the formations, the
general work in Saturday's game was
good. "It is the fastest team lowa ever
had," exclaimed Captain J. G. Griffith,
now the coach at Simpson, from the side
lines, Saturday. The guards showed
themselves tp 'be great players. Many
experts say that Smith, the giant right
guard, will be one of the strongest guards
in the west this year. The lowa tackles
bore the brunt of Saturday's game and
cam© out of it well. The lowa tandem
was relied upon for great gains. Cap
tain Williams in the second half kicked
as often as possible.
Briggs has been moved back of the rush
line this year to play as an additional
quarterback on account of his lightness
and activity. He stood still Saturday,
however, while the normal tandem
plowed through Hollenbock and Herbert.
Briggs also did some very poor passing.
In the -backfield, Weiland at left half
easily earned his position by his great
work, both in offensive and defensive.
Captain Williams is also sure of his po
sition. The other back positions are open

Fargo, X. D., Oct. B.—The defeat of the Red

North Dakota agricultural college boys was
expected, but the score of 60 to 0 surprised
every one. It was due more to the weakness
of the Methodises, however, than to the work
of the locals, which is not yet up to last
year's standard. Coach Harrison is expected
to arrive to-morrow and break in the new
men and touch up the old ones for faster
work. The Interference this year is excellent,

golf enthusiasts was present to-day when

Both made fairly straight drives, getting
good distance and were enthusiastically

best drives of the morning. She drove a
straight ball which went fully 190 yards
and landed in a nice position for an iron
shot, which slie easily made.

away in close proximity to the bunker.
Her partner, Miss Eunice Terry of the

drive, bult on her second shot she was
pretty nearly as far advanced as Miss Cur
