GOPHERS AND HUSKERS MAKING NEW CONTRACT.

GOPHERS TO VISIT
NEBRASKA I N 1908
ON THE BOARDS
in athletic circles at the University of -MoT.
Nebraska is the drafting of schedules.
Despite the series of disastrous defeats
sustained by the cornhuskers, the finan
cial report shows a net profit of sev
eral thousand .-dollars, and Graduate
Manager Eager is diligently at work ar
ranging the 1907 football schedule.
The only absolute pronouncement the
manager is able to make concerning the
gridiron game is that Nebraska and
Minnesota have completed the prelim
inary details for a two-year contract.
The cornhuskers were anxious to inJeurnal
duce the gophers to come to Lincoln
to play football next year on the basis
of a return game in Minneapolis in
1908, but the Minnesota authorities
could not confirm this arrangement, the
result being an agreement for Nebraska
to play in Minneapolis on Oct. 19, 1907,
and the gophers to play in Lincoln on
the final Saturday iwior to Thanksgiv
ing Day in 1908.
Nebraska is to play three games
away from home during the coming
season. Minnesota, and Kansas are to
have two of these contests, while the
third has been spoken for by a "big"
nine" eleven, altho the negotiations
will not yet permit a formal announce
There are a few other possible
Thanksgiving possibilities. The Car
lisle Indians or Colorado university
may be brought to Lincoln, while St.
Louis university is anxious to book
Nebraska for a game in St. Louis.
The selection of Nebraska's coach
tor next year is still unsettled. Pro
fessor James T. Lees, chairman of the
athletic board, is conducting the ne
gotiations and he cannot file a report
until his return after the holiday va
cation from New Ybrk, where he has
gone to represent Nebraskaat the an
nual meeting of the American rules
committee and at the session of the
National Intercollegiate Athletic asso
ciation. The board is a unit in the de
termination that the cornhuskers are
to have a high-class instructor, one
who has demonstrated his ability and'
has won his spurs, and none else will
be considered for the place. "While Pro
fessor Lees has declined to give any
inkling of the possible result of his in
vestigation, there is a well-grounded
belief in cornhusker athletic circles
that the choice now rests between
i-J'King" Cole, coach at Virginia uni
versity, and Turner, coach at Syracuse
university, with Cole as the most for
midable candidate of all. This is only
surmige, but Cole is so highly recom
mended and his teams at Virginia have
been so consistently strong that the
Nebraska authorities are quite certain
to give his name serious consideration.
The Nebraska board, in connection
with the captaincy, has just- passed a
stringent rule calculated to compel

small mortgage on the place. A few

and said: 'Say, Benedict, can I press

Recently Corbett offered Benedict
the place, worth $,3000, for $500 spot
cash. His offer was accepted. When
Benedict went to take possession the
elder Eothwell and his daughter wept
bitterly. A wealthy neighbor induced
Benedict to sell the place to him for

New York, Dec. 22.The
rules committee will meet today to
make minor changes in the regulations
of the game. There have been several
informs} talks, by the members of the i
committee following some of the im-,
games of the fall^nd it these
gatherings the more important alter
ations in the code for next autumn
were drafted in the rough. As a result
of these discussions, it practically has
been decided that the following changes
will be made in the present plaving
Substituting a distance penalty for
loss of ball when a forward pass hits
Changing the rules so as to allow
linemen to run with the ball, pro
yided they are not used in mass plays

Limiting the operation of the'five

so- that a forward pass from the out
side may legally crogs the zone.
One more down inside the 25-yard
Extension of playing time from~^
thirty to thirty-five minuljes. t%
These are the principal changes that
are expected to be made, but there is
certain to be 'much discussion over
each change -and it may be that somekl
proposed alterations will be voted down
or at least compromised. Some of the
committee are known to be in favor
of permitting four downs on tries for/
ten yards ID side the 25-vard line
whereas others appear to think that'
the zone of the rule should be limited,
to inside the 15-yard line.
John C. Bell, who represent^ the*
University of Pennsylvania on the
rules committee, said in commenting
on this proposed change: "There is
widespread agreement of opinion that
something should be done to strengthen
the offense inside of 25-yard lines.
JNow, a team is practically compelled
to resort t old style football when
near the opponents' goal line and' the
handicap of only three rushes to make
ten yards i too great. Obviously the
torward pass, and on-side kick are in
advisable here, and many games this
season have proved that at this point
the attack needs strengthening. The
remedy suggested is one more down."
As Mr. Bell states, there is little
regarding the need' of a change
