Mystified and baffled by the foot
ball played by Minnesota j'esterday af
ternoon, Professor Alonzo A. Stagg,
coach, and Walter Eckersall, captain
of the Chicago football team who made
the trip to Minneapolis to get a line
on the tactics to be used by the goph
ers next Saturday, returned to their
home last night without the informa
tion for which they came.
While others in the stand looked on
and wondered as Minnesota sent play
after play into the line, only to IOSP the
ball on downs, the gentlemen from
Chicago smiled grimly at the trick be
ing played upon them by the gopher
la vain they waited for the dashing
open play of the cornhuakers to force
Minnesota to resort to similar tactics.
While they waited the gophers stuck
doggedly to their prosaic plays and
slowly battered the Nebraskans into de
feat. When the first half was ended,
Stagg declared that Nebraska was beat
en and at the same time tacitly ac
knowledged his own defeat. With a
grim smile "the old man" of Mar
shall field intimated that probably
"Harry" had more cards in his hand
than he was showing.
"Minnesota has a powerful team."
said Professor Stagg at the close of the
^t half, "but it is uist pushing into
the line. A less powerful team would
have been beaten long ago if it stuck to
such tactics, and the fact that Minne
sota has not been scored on shows that
its team is made up of fine material
"Minnesota is plaving nothing but
old-style football, but it is wearing Ne
braska down by its superior weight and
strength and will win the game in the
coming half. It is a powerful team that
can buck the line against the ten-yavd
rule and not lose at it
"Nebraska is plaving the game as it
should be played under the new rules.
Those ooen plays and forward passes
are the new game.
"If the published weights of the
Minnesota team are correct, and 1
should nudge that thev are, we will be
considerably outweighed next Satur
day. Our center weighs 176 pounds and
our guards 184 and 186 pounds respec
"By coming here I have learned noth
ing but the quality of the material
from which the Minnesota team is
m-K-in Tt is r^rramlv a fine looking lot
of players that Dr. Williams has to
worK with.'
Captain Eckersall confined his ex
pression of opinion to an indorsement
of all that Coach Stagg had said and a
compliment to the playing of Art Lar
kin at quarter.

Fargo, N. D., Nov. 3.Coach Dobie's
Agricultural college pets had a run
away here today against Yankton,
winning 61 to 0, thirty-nine points be
ing scored in the first half. The big
score was largely a result of the mag
nificent work ofXJaptain Birch of the
"farmers" on cleverly executed, de
layed and double passes, he making
five of the touchdowns.
The aggies jeere in good shape and
clearly outclassed the visitors in all
departments. The Yankton players
were light but made a game fight
against certain defeat. The visitors
did some clever tackling and made
half a dozen attempts at forward
passe*, only one of which was success
They made first down only twice
during the game. Left Half Treadway
and Left End Bobbins were easily the
star players oi the South Dakota ag
gregation. Some new formations that
the "fanners" have been practicing
were successfully worked and Dobie
will have his team in good shape to go
against Hamline Saturday.
The Duponts were defeated by the Franklins
by a score of 10 to 0. The feature of the game
was the fast playing of Bosenbloom and Brousis.
Indians Have Fun With Syracuse
but Attempt No Famous
Reservation Tricks.
By Publishers' Press. i
Buffalo, N. Y., Nov. 3.On a field
wet and soggy, a condition which gave
Syracuse an advantage over their light
er opponents, the Carlisle Indian team
defeated the salt city representatives
by a score of 9 to 4. The game was
one of the most brilliant of the sea
son, clear and hard fought from the
time the whistle was blown.
Two goals were kicked from the
field, one by Mount Pleasant and one
by Stein. Syracuse outweighed the In
dians twenty-two pounds. The condi
tion of the grounds prevented the In
dians from bringing off any of their
famous trick plays.
Much punting characterized the
ame and there were few long runs,
lount Pleasant made one gain for
twenty yards, but the runs were few
and far between. In the second half
Syracuse worked the ball down the
field to within twenty yards of Car
lisle's goal, where Stein kicked a goal.

Mortons Are Champions.
Morton, Minn., Nov. 3.The high school team
of this city has won the championship of cen
tral and southwestern Minnesota, owing to the
fact that Renville failed to score upon Redwood

steady play shown by the boys thruout the sea
son earns their title.

no difficulty in defeating Western Uni

this afternoon by a score of 23 to 0.
Except following the kick-offs, the ball

TeamIt Was a clean gaine and a hard game,
but we really bhould have gotten a couple of
touchdowns In that first halt. All the men
on the team showed hue spirit and fought for
all there was in tUeni, but Mmuebotd's power
ful offense was too much. The gopheis, how
ever, didn't play the new game at all. They
used the old utyle entirely, and unless they
change their tactics Chicago should have no

E. O. CNGLR, Manager on the Nebraska Team
We were fairlv beaten, largely bj the supe

show real relative strength of the two teams
the score should stand 13 to 4 Instead of IS
to 0. We certainly earned at least one field
goal by our placing in the first half I was
greatly pleased by the wav the Minnesota
rooters cheered our team and men We had
practically no rooters with us, and the cour
tesy was all the more appreciated for that
reason. The practice of cheering the visiting
team is one which we have introduced at Ne
braska and I think it is one which will do
much to take away the spirit of bitterness
which too often attended the contests of the
past. I am sure that our team would 30m

RALPH HOAGLAND, UmpiieBoth teams
played good, clean, fast ball. Nebraska was
penalized frequently for using hands and
arms in the interference. The better team
won, and I wish to commend specially the
work of the Minnesota ends in getting down
the field under punts, Marshall perfoimed a
wonderful feat in kicking two goals from the
field and credit for these kicks must also
be given the Minnesota forwards who held
their opponents and made the kicks possible.

Minnesota did not play anything but straight
football and won on its superior physical
strength. It appeared very clearly today that
the forward pass Is a trick play. I mean by
that that it is a play which cannot be count

Ames, Iowa: Nov, 3.Ames won a
hard-fought victory today from South
Dakota. They scored touchdowns each
half, after the hardest kind of play
ing. South Dakota came near scoring
a drop kick in the first half, which went
a little wide. In the second half, they
worked the ball to the middle of the
field, where Ames held and punted out
of danp-er.
McElhinney, Hubbard and Jones were
the Ames stars, each making brilliant
runs. Coffey and Case played best for
South Dakota. The forward pass wa*

Boome, Yale's fullback, was compelled
thru injury to keep out of the game,
weakened the collegiate team, but Cap
tain Morse proved a good substitute in
that position.
All thru the first half which was of
twenty-five minutes' duration, there
was several exchanges of punts and
several runs thru the line for the local
men. For the first fifteen minutes
the game was pretty even. The first
score "made by the soldiers was secured

Morse punted out of bounds on
Yale's 50-yard line and Mountford
kicked back to Morse who fumbled,
but Yale saved the ball.
A fumble by Jones of Mountford's
kick a few seconds* later gave the ball
to West Point on Yale's 45-yard line.
A forward pass placed it on Yale's 25-

the ball thru guard and tackle to
Yale's 10-yard line and for off-side
play was penalized five yards more,
leaving the ball on her 5-yard line,

thru the Indians' line for good gains,
and Damon was sent over for a touch
