Outclassed and outplayed by the
hardy kickers from the Nebraska state
university the proud Minnesota team
met a crushing: defeat on Northrop
field yesterday afternoon.
It was an awfuJ jolt.
Armed with yards and yards of ma-
Boon and gold ribbon the supporters
9t Minnesota crowded into the univer-
Wty park tianris and filled the air with
taunts. Even the university band
joined in the general rejoicing, and to
make the visitors feel even more hum
ble and mean played "When Ruben
Comes to Town" when the Cornhusk
ers came onto the field.
This was all before the game.
Why shouldn't the Minnesota root
ers wax merry? Minnesota men were
•waving large bales of green paper in
the faces of the few from Nebraska
and offering to give odds that the
Cornhuskers would not score, and the
little party wearing the Nebraska col
ors backed away from the money.
Confident Before Game.
For a time the thousands in the
stands followed the rooter captains
and howled the rah, rah, rah of Min
nesota through their megaphones, and
the weak little U, rah, rah of the Ne
braska following was completely
drowned. But the minutes wore on
and there was nothing doing. Big
Johnnie Flynn and Rogers were in tha
line and little Big. Harris was at quar
ter running the team, but time after
time the Minnesota backs were sent
smashing' Bgainrt the line only to be
hurled back and the thousands began
to realize thar. Minnesota was up
against a real football team.
As all this dawned on them the
chant of the thousands weakened.
Now the little pipe of the Nebraska
could be heard more often. The ma
roon and gold-bedecked ones did not
attempt to drown out the shouts. They
were too busy vondering what was*to
We beat Colorado,
We beat Grinnell,
And we'll smash Minnesota
All to IT, rah, rah, Nebraska.
The Nebraska men started this cry
when they realized that their voices
could be heard and the Minnesota
rooters frilled to answer. They hated
to fidmit it evei. to themselves, but
this yell of the Cornhuskers looked
about to come true.
And come true it did. The Corn
huskers pounded the Minnesota line
and sent their tandems around the
ends and slowly but surely the ball
moved nearer and nearer to the Min
"Hold Them Minnesota."
The thousands who but a few mo
ments before had laughingly advised
the Gophers to hurry their touchdown
now begged and Implored the Maroon
and Gold line to hold.
"Hold them, Minnesota, Hold them,"
pleaded the mass of coloring in the
"We beat Colorado,
We beat Grinnell
And we'll smash Minnesota
All to U, rah, rah, Nebraska."
The chant came back from the now
happy Cornhuskers and the ball mov
ed on toward the Minnesota line.
The noise stopped. A tandem play
put the ball on Minnesota's 8-yard
line, and Nebraska still had the ball.
The teams lined up again and the Min
nesota supporters waited. Some of the
men swore and others almost sobbed.
They did sob In the Minnesota line.
The whistle blew. Little Harris could
not stand the strain and hurdled the
Nebraska line before the ball was pass
ed. Nebraska waited while he was
ordered back to hia place. Nebraska
could afford to wait. The Cornhuskers
came hoping to hold the Minnesota
team from a big win, and here was
Nebraska lined up Just S yards from
the Minnesota line.
Benedict repeated his signal, and to
the anxious crowds it seemed an age.
Rogers at the end looked like a demon
as he teetered on his toes and watched
Benedict's hand. Johnnie Flynn push
ed close to Webster and every other
man pushed toward the center.
Minnesota Line Holds.
Benedict signed and the ball was
Nebraska hit that wall of flesh and
bone and the wall held.
Nebraska had wasted a chance and
the goal line was still away from them.
Benedict repeated more signals and
the rooters saw the Cornhuskers make
ready for their tandem play that had
gained ground all through the after
"It's all over now," groaned the
thousands, and then whirling and
twisting the Nebraska line started to
move, and though the Minnesota men
threw themselves In the way, Bender
was pushed over for the touchdown.
Benedict kicked the goal, but no one
cared about that. The one touchdown
had ended everything.
Minnesota was outplayed by Ne
braska. Playing as they did yesterday
the Maroon and Gold had no chance
to win. Benedict gained for his team
In the exchangee of punts, and the
Cornhuskers played a superior offen
sive and defensive game. Time and
time again the Nebraska men would
break through the Minnesota line in
time to spoil plays. Westover and
Shedd appeared able to get through
every time they started.
Minnesota had no real interference,
and failed utterly to stop the inter
ference of the Nebraska players. Every
time the Cornhuskers started their
tandem play it meant a gain. The Ne
braska backs hit against Schacht, Gray,
Warren and Rogers for gains, while
Bhedd, Mason, Westover and Cortelyou
were real giants, and made the Ne
braska line a stone wall.

YALE WINS A HARD GAME.
Pennsylvania State College Eleven Put

NEW HAVEN, Conn.. Oct. 18.—Tale
defeated the Pennsylvania state college
eleven today at football by the score of
11 to 0. The game was the hardest that
Tale has been called upon to play so far
this season, and afforded invaluable prac
tice. The play was marred by the fact
that the ground was muddy and the ball
wet and slippery because of the rain that
fell before and all during the game, and
players were several times compelled to
be content with small gains because they
slipped and fell.
Tale's goal was not seriously in danger
at any time, although two long runs by
Smith, fullback, gave Pennsylvania cour
age to hope to score, but neither time did
he come near enough to the Tale goal to
give the visitors a chance to attempt a
Late in the first half the Tale team, for
a few minutes, became demoralized, and
the visitors pushed the ball nearly forty
yards by good gains through both tackles
and carried it out from a point danger
ously near their own goal. Three times
in the first half and four times in the sec
ond Tale lost the ball to Pennsylvania
by fumbles, and twice these fumbles cost
Tale what seemed likely to be touch
downs. Tale was never held by the vis
itors, who seemed unable to break the

The first touchdown was made early in
the first half by Farmer, after a series of
short line plunges and end runs. Ward
kicked the goal. It was not until late in
the second half that Tale could again

beautiful forty-yard run back of Smith's
punt and a good end run by Farmer and

CHICAGO, Oct. 18.—The University of
Chicago eleven defeated Northwestern
university 12 to 0, on Marshall field to
day. Northwestern kept the ball in ma
roon territory most of the first half, but
neither side scored. In the second half
Chicago's defense strengthened notably
and they were able to push the ball over
twice, Ellsworth kicking goal bdth times.
It was straight, hard, man-killing play
from the start. Chicago's right half
backs were the greatest sufferers, the
position held originally by Schnur, falling
later to Bezdek, Jennison and Ivison in
the order given, made the only of the
day—fifty yards—materially assisting in
securing Chicago's first touchdown. Chi
cago's play, while not fast, showed fair
speed, compared with their work earlier
in the season.

PHILADELPHIA, Pa., Oct. 18.—The
University of Pennsylvania football eleven
was defeated on Franklin field today by
Brown university by the score of 15 to 6
in halves of 25 and 20 minutes each.
Brown scored two touchdowns and kicked
a field goal while Pennsylvania scored one
touchdown. The Providence eleven ex
celled at all points of the game, and at
no time after the first few minutes of the
play did the Quakers have a chance to
win. Their only score was made on a
fumble by Baker a few minutes after the
play began. Pennsylvania's offense, which
has been their main strength, was power
less against Brown's I^-ie, and the red
and blue failed to make more than a
dozen first downs during the entire game.

Cornell Comes to Grief at the Hands of
ITHACA, N. V., Oct. 18.—The Cornell
football eleven was defeaetd on Percy
field by the Carlisle Indians today. The
Bcore was 10 to 6, and all of the scoring
was done in the first half. The Indians
were at their best, and they could not
have met Cornell when the Ithacans were
in worse shape. Cornell s back field was
crippled, and Coach Morrison was obliged
to send Into the fray substitutes whose
ability was questioned and who had had
little experience in games.
A faster and more determined lot of
football players than the Indians never
cam« to. Percy. iTeld. Their. plajr« jrei*
well conceived, and were cleverly va
ried, while their interference was su
perb. A play which massed quickly on
tackle was used with great effectiveness
and was responsible for a large number
of Indian gains, while tackle-back and
end shift formations kept Cornell guess-
Carlisle's scores were due largely to
good luck. Interference with a free
catch gave the Indians fifteen additional
yards and afforded Wheelock a favorable
opportunity to kick goal from a place
on the thirty-yard line.
Carlisle's touchdown came after a re
markable piece of good fortune. Williams
punted from well In the Indian territory,
and the ball being rolled past Brewster,
well into territory, it hft Tydeman's leg
and Bradley fell on it. The Indians soon"
sent the ball over by their heavy masses
on Cornell's line. Cornell's score was
made from a block kick Immediately
after the Indians' touchdown. In the sec
ond half Cornell's attack was feeble, but
the defense was better. Brewster was
able to protect Cornell's goal by contin
ually punting out of danger.

TOLEDO, Ohio, Oct. 18.—Three thou
sand people saw the University of Michi-
gan football team beat Notre Dame at -
Armory park today by a score of 23 to 0,
on a soft and slippery ground.
Michigan's showing was a disappoint
ment to her admirers. With the splendid
team work and her speedy backs and ends,
she far outclassed Notre Dame. Yet the
plucky Hoosiers played hard football, and
had their better trained antagonists fight
ing for their lives.
Most of the game was the straight foot
ball —Yost s famous tackle bucks by
Michigan and line bucking by Notre Dajne,
During the nrgt half, the game waged
almost evenly, but in the second half,
toward the clos.e, the Notre Dame Una
showed the results of Michigan's work and
only through sheer determination hung
to the game and pulled down their oppo
nents with but comfortable galas.
