Prom a Staff Correspondent.
Lincoln, Neb., Oct. 7.—Nebraska uni
versity's ifootball -victory over Doane col
lege of Crete, Neb., at Lincoln, Saturday,
was not so decisive as it was expected to
be in the light of all that had been re
ported of the strength of the Nebraska
eleven. The score at the end of thirty
five minutes' play stood 29 to 0 in favor
of the "great cornhuskers." The Doane
eleven that played Saturday was about
euch an eleven as Carleton sent to North
rop field a week ago—a little heavier on
th<» average, but possessed of less know
ledge of the points of the game. Individ
ually the men played a spirited game, but
as a team, they could do nothing to stop
the charges of the heavy Nebraskans or
to make gains against them. On the other
hand, the Nebraskans hardly came up to
the expectations begotten of the hlgtaly
colored reports which have been allowed
to flow like water from tbe pens of the
Lincoln critics, possibly in the hope that
they could aid their home team by soar-
Ing coming opponents Into a "blue funk"
by such reports.
Two Stars Not In Game.
Still, tne Nebraskans -were apparently
possessed of the feeling that it was not
necessary to do their best against so weak
a foe and did not play as fast a game
as they were capable of, and further,
Kiuger, the big left guard, and Koehler,
the star center, were not in the game.
Both of theso men are very heavy and,
skilful players and the substitution of
other men in their places materially
•weakened the team. Ringer and Koehler
are being saved for the great game with
Minnesota Saturday. With these two men
Nebraska has a powerful aggregation—a
team of great weight and much more skill
than was shown In the game with the
Doane boys Saturday.
The game with Minnesota, therefore,
will be a battle of giants, to accept the
term applied so frequently by outsiders
to the Minnesota men. The Neforaskans
•will measure up well with them man for
»ian. Right across the line, with C. Shedd
at left end. Stringer left tackle, Ringer
left guard, Koehler center. Brew right
guard, Captain Westover right tackle,
Cortelyou* right end, the Minnesota men
■will have their hands full. Further, Ne
braska has a tremendous 'back flefld in the
three big men, KingSbury left half, (X
Bhedd right half and Pillsbury fullback.
Drain at quarter is a little man, but as
Agile as a cat and a clever dodger.
4 Man (or Man.
C. Shedd at left end can scarcely Jbe re
garded as a match for Aune, who will
oppose him. Stringer at left tackle will
make his man, whoever he is to be, work
tea !hard as he ever did on a gridiron.
Ringer will tax Mueller's strength,
but the advantage, it seems, will be
with Mueller. There will be an opportun
ity, therefore, for Mueller to distinguish
ktmself. Koehler at center Is a strong
man, but is not Page's equal, bo far as
can be learned. Brew, right guard, will
not have things his own way against
Flynn, but Flynn Twill have no snap in
taking care of Brew. Westover and Fee.
are pretty evenly matched in point of
strength; the conflict between these two
men will be gladiatorial and in inself will
be worth going to the game to see. Cor
telyou will be the strongest man Rogers
•will have been called upon to meet up
to Saturday.
At the half back positions the Nebras
kans will have some advantage in weight
and experience, at least on one side. Do
bie and Knowlton at their best are more
than matches, all things considered, for
Drain and Pillsbury respectively.
The Nebraskans can vary the program
behind the line by substituting Bender
and Crandall, two light but tremendously
swift men, for Shedd and Kingsbury at
halves and Bell for Pillsbury at fullback.
The heavier men will doubtless be played
first and depended upon for terrific line
plunging, for they are all men of courage
when it comes to plunging into the line.
If they fail to gain ground, however, the
more agile men may be tried.
The Way One Feela.
Despite the strength of the men and
their individual prowess as players there
is the feeling that as a team the Nebras
kans are not quite the equals of the
gophers. The reasons for this feeling are
rather elusive; it is hard to tell*just on
what to base it; but after seeing both
teams at work the feeling "is there" and
sticks fast, assuming always that the Min
nesota men will do their best—play the
game that such men ought to be able to
play, the old players putting away any
temptation to over-confidence and the new
men rivaling the old In their efforts to
play a perfect game.
Minnesota has no defeat to wipe out, but
last year's victory was not enough for
their admirerB —that is the victory against
Nebraska. It was expeoted that the Ne
braskanß would be shut out; they scored
twelve points; Minnesota's admirers,
therefore, look for that shut-out to be
made good this year. To do it, the Min
nesota men will have to do some ter
rific work. Yet that should be their ob
jective so far as defensive work goes, and
about three touchdowns should be the aim
of the offensive — not less than that.
The question Is, can they and will they
make such a score? eDsplte the fact that
the Nebraskans may have felt some slight
taint of overconfldence, they are strong
men, as has been pointed out, they are de
termined men down to the last substitute
and they are working with a will. Such
an aggregation makes an ideal foe for
those who love a good gridiron battle. But
Minnesota should win, if they do consci
entious work between now and Saturday,
and, when Saturday comes, play the game
they are capable of.
The Game iv Brief.
By a succession of line plunges, Ne
braska carried the ball over Doane's goal
Una In less than five minutes from the
start, Plllsbury carrying the ball over.
Stringer kicked a goal, making the score
6to 0. G. Shedd went over for a second
touchdown a few minutes later after a
succession of easy charges, making the
score 11 to 0, the try at goal falling. The
play was almost entirely in Doane terri
tory, as on the kick-offs the Nebraska men
were able to get the ball well back down
the field, largely through the clever dodg
ing and running of Drain, who is a ver
itable goat at the art. The Nebraska in
terference formed only fairly, but such as
there was was effective. There was some
fumbling, too, on Nebraska's part, but it
was usually a Nebraska man who fell on
the ball. Only once were the Nebraskans
held for downs, a third touch-down and a
second failure at goal left the score at the
end of the first half of twenty minutes
17 to 0.
In the second half Crandall and Bell
took the places of Kingsbury and Pllls-
T^^^iropii^apF^^t>tyr^
bury, left half and fullback respectively.
Bender had taken O. Shedd's place at
right half late In the first half, Johnson
took Cortelyou's place at right end early In
the second half. With these changes
Nebraska began the second half with a
dash which the Doane boys rallied to
meet with some degree of success. Drain
caught the kick-off and carried back
twenty-five yards before he was felled.
Bender was then called upon to take the
ball, and in several rushes soon had the
ball near the Doane line, over which it
was easily pushed a few moments later.
Goal was kicked, making the score 23
to 0. The operation was soon repeated
and the score stood 29 to 0, at which
point the play ceased, the second half
being only fifteen minutes long.
Nebraska's punting was wretched, fall
ing far below what might have been ex
pected from all that had been said of the
efforts to strengthen the team for such
work. Several times punti were tried
when there was no apparent reason for
them, but they never netted much ground
for the cornhuskers.
This weakness In punting, the inevi
table fumbling and the fact that the team,
which has been training for several weeks
failed to pile up a score t. greater pro
portions against the Doane eleven, for it
could not be called a team, perhaps fur
nish sufficient ground for believing that
Nebraska is weaker than Minnesota.
Still it remains for Minnesota to demon
strate that their work as a team Is more
consistent. The Nebraskans promise a
hot game, and the Minnesotans will get
it beyond a doubt.

the Carlisle team last year. The reports
add that Coach Booth and Captain West

athletic board of the University of Min
nesota, asserting that Rogers is barred
by the rules of the big nine conference,
.which hold that no player shall be al
lowed to represent a college more than
.four years, and that if a player goes from
one school to another he must wait a
full year before entering himself as a
candidate for football honors.
It Is stated very positively by those in
direct authority at the "U" that Rogers
.will play next Saturday. It is denied,
further, that his playing will be in vio
lation of any rule of the "big nine," in
.view of the fact that Carlisle is regarded
as a preparatory school, to which the
rules cited do not apply. Little fear is
expressed that the Nebraska team "will
not enter the field," therefore. It is
well known that Carlisle's curriculum
is only preparatory. Indeed, it scarcely
carries its students to a point at which
they may enter freshmen in most col
leges. The grounds for Nebraska's pro
test would, therefore, seem to be very
alight.

How much credit the Minnesota foot
ball team is entitled to for winning a game
from the Chicago College of Physicians
and Surgeons by the almost ludicrous
score of 27 to 0, is not an easy thing to
determine. The medical students had
not lined up before this season and aside
from their lack of training they had not
even learned the signals. They did not
elect their captain until they arrived in
Minneapolis, Saturday morning, and Cap
tain Bothne's first work was to take the

On the other hand, the college boasts
that no team, not even the members of
the "Big Nine," had ever crossed Its goal
line more than twice in one game. Last
year, with scarcely no practice, the team
held the Wisconsin "U" eleven down to
five points, and although often beaten,
there has been no disgrace in any of the
defeats. Moreover, all .the members are
veteran players and some are stars.
Bothne of Northwestern, Cory of Wis
consin, Little and Ingham of lowa, Lock
wood of Michigan, will be remembered by
all who follow the game closely. Six of
the last year's team were back including
Cory, the center, the two exceptionally
strong tackles, Schillo and Lockwood and
the two speedy halves, Pickett and
Bothne. The center quintet carried
around over a thousand pounds of bone
and brawn and looked a good match for
anything in human form. The five new
men showed good knowledge of the game
and all in all the medical students were
not a team to be despised—but one to
be reckoned with at every turn. The
lack of team work was quite made up by
the spirited work of the individual players
and more than once did they break
through the Minnesota line and tackle the
man with the ball.
There was much to admire about the
Minnesota play, that is, individually con
sidered. Fee attracted attention and was
-wildly cheered and applauded. Boeckman
■waa also the objecl of a noisy and enthusi
astic outburst. Doble distinguished him
self time and again; so did Rogers, so
did Aune, Allen, little Johnny Flynn and
Kuowlton, but It was all in grandstand
work." When the runner waa trying to
make ground he was almost invariably
alone.
It looked heroic to see a player strug
gling alone, but it would have been much
more effective to have had some assis
tance from his comrades. The ball was
not handled cleanly. It was lost several
time* on fumbles and on the kick-offs
and punts all the players who tried to
oaten the ball bungled their -work. This
does not apply to Dobie, who got a sura
grip on any pigskin that came -within
leaping distance. That the ball was
dropped occasionally thus early in the
season need not worry any one. In a biff
game it would <be very serious and might
result in a defeat, but by the time the
big games come, the fumbling will be
overcome.
The gophers showed themselves to be in
the fittest physical condition and exhib
ited not a trace of -weariness. They had
splendid practice against the heavy line
of their opponents and usually made their
distance. Four times they were prevented
from making touchdowns after getting the
ball down to within ten yards of the goal.
It may be that they were not equal to the
emergency, 'but many are very doubtful
on this point. There could have been more
spirited play, but no *true sportsman
wants to play hard against an opponent
so hopelessly inferior as the visitors were
to the gophers.
It was a good practice game for the
Minnesotans, good because they had a
clfance to work against heavy material
and because it revealed the most serious
faults which must be overcome.
IThe most spectacular play of the day
was the seventy-five yard run of Fee,
after breaking through the center and
evading the backs. Bo.eckman also made
a brilliant run of sixty-five yards, but
it was not allowed, as several players'on
both teams were off side.
It was hoped that the game would de
termine who would play at right tackle
and left half, but it can not hardly be
said to have done so. Allen and Boeck
man did same good things at left half,
but could knaw more of the game. Neither
Waist nor Thorpe distinguished themself,
but either might prove (fairly safe, even
if they could not become as strong in the
position as Tweet.

The general play- o« Saturday was much
in advance of thai of a week ago. The
teams had become sufficiently "hardened"
to allow faster play, and nearly all the
elevens worked up to their early season
limit. The only real surprises of the day
were the low score game%. lowa and
Chicago are both dealing with green ma
terial, and Northwestern played a crippled
team, —Lake Forest —but the scores were
expected to be higher, notwithstanding.
The Chicago situation remains about the
same as it was a week ago. The Maroons
have not the material for a first-class
team, and are not trying to conceal the
fact. Knox gave them an even game.
There waß little to choose between the
teams at any stage of the contest. But in
justice to Stagg it must be said that Knox
was far better rounded out than Chicago.
The Chicago ends were both new at the
position and were next to useless when
Chicago was on the offensive. Neverthe
less Chicago is in for a hard uphill fight
all through the campaign, and victories
will be appreciated on the Midway as they
never have been before.

Special to The Journal.
Madison, Wis., Oct. 7.—By defeating
Hdye Park 63 to 0, Saturday afternoon,
the Wisconsin football team demonstrated
that it was rapidly getting into form.
The high school lads played a plucky
game, but were unable to withstand the
fierce rushes of their heavier opponents,
and plunges through the line at almost
any point, alternated with runs around
the end. Wisconsin played a fast and
snappy game, and seemed bent on piling
up all the scores possible, except in two
instances when, in order to show what
they could do on defensive play, the ball

■was punted over to the Hyde Park side,
fhe badgers worked equally well on de
fense, and not once during the game did
the high school lads succeed In making
their five yards, always being compelled
to punt. Wisconsin, on the other hand,
never failed to make her distance, and the
only times the visitors got the ball was
after the kickoffs and punts, and once on
a fumble.
During the second half six or seven of
the substitutes were put in, and while
there was a noticeable difference In the
game, the badgers were still toor strong
for their opponents. Fogg played quar
terback until the middle of the second
half, handled the ball well and got Into
the interference in fine shape. Larson
and Cochems at halfback carried the ball
for the greater part of the gains, though
Driver was sent through the line for ten
or twelve yards on several occasions.
Cochems got In two seventy-yard runs
around thread, one of them for a touch
down on the second play after the kick
off.
The defeated team was the same, with
the exception of one man, that defeated
Chicago 6 to 0 a week previously, and the
Hyde Park players and coaches agreed
that Chicago, at the present stage at
least, Is not In Wisconsin's class at all.
In the kicking contest held before the
game, Schreiber won In the drop kicks at
goal, and Abercromble in the punts for
distance, sending the oval 63 yards. Their

"- Dcs Moines, lowa, Oct. 7.—ln a well-at
tended game of football played under elec
tric lights at the ball park Saturday night,
Orinnell defeated Drake university team
by a score of 6to 5. The game was
marked by a sensational incident. In the
course of the playing Drake was frequent
ly penalized by Referee Lane, a Yale
alumnus and coach of the Highland Park
normal football team. A touchdown made
by Bacon of Drake just as the game was
closing would have given Drake the game,
but Lane refused to allow it. Graeser,
an old Drake man, temporarily out of the
game, walked up to the referee and struck
him.a hard blow in the neck, felling him
to the ground. J A general melee was bare

Lane off the field in a dazed condition
and clearing the crowd out of the park ss
quickly as possible.
• IOWANS DISAPPOINTED
Game Against State Normal Give*
. , Them Low Score.
lowa City, lowa, Oct. "Well, I guess
lowa will have to go some.. if she beats
Minnesota in three weeks from now. , She
can never do it with that team." That is
a sample of the talk heard among lowa
rooters, at the close of the i game with the
state normal team of Cedar Falls, Satur
day, in which the teachers held the Hawk
eyes down to sixteen points. The score
was 16 to 0, while the game with the same
team last year, much earlier in the sea
son was 68 to 0.
The lowans feel bad, not so much be
cause of the poor showing made against
the normal, but because the Minnesota
game is so near. It Is this game that
the students are much concerned about.
The normal has her last year's team al
most intact, but the men were nearly flf-
before Sir Thomas made this announce
ment.
If Sir Thomas does not issue a chal
lenge for a race next year, it is not un
likely that there may be a race. It is
reported that the Emperor of Germany
is considering the matter of challenging
for the America's cup.
There is talk of others also issuing
challenges.

teen pounds lighter, hence the way tht:
held the old gold was heartgickening.
When the normal team came upon tht
ground thoughts of last year's score of
68 to 0 caused them fear and trembling,
and as a result lowa scored a touchdown
in the first three minutes' play, and added
two more in the next six minutes. Ther,
the visitors made a stand and the scor
ing was all over. The teachers had ttu:
ball a greater share of the time. \v. C.
Edson, the famous halfback of the low;,
teams of '99 and "00 has been coaching the
normal team and the manner in which
Wallace and Wolfe went around and
through the lowa line showed that Edson
had been doing some wonderful work with
them. But where the men made their
gains was through the line and especially
through center where lowa to-day is la
mentably weak. Coach Knipe has beon
practicing the squad on the old Harvard
defense, putting Briggs, the center, back
of the line, and having the guards close
in to fill the space. Perhaps it was be
cause of the newness of the play to Sei
berts and Smith, the guards, but somehow
the normal found this to be a soft place
and they walked through it. They also
went through Herbert and Hollenbeck for
repeated gains with the tandem play.
Briggs and Buckley did not get into the
defense and the normal's rushes made
good gains. The strongest feature of the
lowan's play was the flying interference,
which aided Williams in making long
runs with the ball.
Another new play for lowa consists in
having the guards, ends and center run
back to the man who catches the kick-off
and form a solid, fast moving mass be
hind which the man carrying the ball
runs with safety. This feature was very
successful.
The individual work of the members cf
the team was much better than the teaai
work. The speed is not up to last year's
standard. Weiland at halfback is con
sidered a find. When his 175 pounds
strike the line it means a gain. Buckley
is playing an excellent game at fullback,
and Terrill, the new man from the West
Dcs Moines High school, is distinguishing
himself as a punter.
The lowa team lined up thus: Right
end, Watters; right tackle, Hollenbeck;
right guard, Smith; center, Briggs; left
guard, Seiberts; left tackle, Burrier; left
end, Herbert; right half, Weiland; left
half, Terrill; fullback, Buckley; quarter
back. Captain Williams.
