Rr J.MK, E, LtWBKirK. LINCOLN. Oct. 1 (Special.) Life wl'l be either very sweet or very soar to ' Johnny Bender, the former Husker e(ar. Who has thrilled more Nebraska rooters 1 than anV other player, a week from to j night. j Bender brings his team, the Kansas Afr sr'es of Manhattan, Kan., to Lincoln next Saturday for the annual game between these two Missouri' Valley schools. There la nothing quite so sweet to the former . Cornhusker star as a victory over his 'alma mater. Nebraska will not forget very soon how Bender's Haskell Indians gave the huskers one of the worst trounc ,lngs in their history the only year the I little wlsard was at the head of the coaching system of the Indian school. Back of Bender's desire to humble Ms a'ma mater Is more prose than fiction. Bender wanted to be coach at Nebraska when Junibo Stiehm was chosen to take charge of affairs. Admitting he was the cleverest foot ball man evr "put out by th school, a large number of the alumni rebelled st the thought of .Bender being placed In charge, and his application re ceived, slight consideration. Johnny Ben der has not forgotten and his season will virtually oegln and end with the game next Sat ur lay. Has (J rent Bnrkfleld. Coach Jumbo Stiehm knows very little about the Aggies. The Kansas papers have taken great delight In their usual pastime' ot throwing out "bear dope," but Stiehm knows Bender well enough to place no confidence In such re-orts. Skin- ner is the heaviest man t - Aggies' backfield,-but what he d I to the Ne- braska line last year la a pa.nrui topic 'consistently and punting was resorted to, With Skinner to build up, Wlsard Bender land In the duels Vlrlgnla had 'the advan shoiild display a' very fancy scoring ma- j tags. . The southerners also ' outplayed chine for the edification of his alma Tale. Burkeley made one twenty-three-rhater Skinner, with other members of i yard run. No scoring. , the squad, has been on the hospital Hat, but is practically over an atack of the grip and will be In prime condition when lined up against the huskers. Wily John sent a patchwork lineup against Southwestern university thfs afternoon and It is a safe guess he gave orders to uncover nothing for Nebraska friends to tip off to Stlohm, Bender Is coaching his first season at Manhattan and this is accounted an ad ditional Incentive for the ex-Nebraskan to put up a strong fight. Stiehm Has Worries. Jumbo Stlohm is having lots of worry with his Una. The gaps left In the lino by the graduation of forwards will com pel the , Nebraska leader to use all of his ingenuity if he will present his usual stonewall defense. Following the Aggies game ; comes Washburn cornea and the lshabods s,re never easy. Then Nebraska will meet Notre Dame in the biggest game of. the year. .. u'x '. ;,. .... ,. i a While foot hall Is-" the .main feature ;ef athletic' activity Athletic Manager Guy E.

Ths "Royal Rooters" will huve seats In ths grandstand and not In ths bleachers. The National commission then took up the question of the proposed Pacific coast trip of ths two contending world's series teams, but nothing definite was decided upon. ..-..:.. The commission and the owners of ths Philadelphia and Boston clubs were fav orably Impressed with tha Idea, however, and the club owners will take the matter up with their managers, and players. A committee from the Panama-Paclflo ax position la expected to corns east and Clrcuss ths proposed trip with ths mag. nates during ths world's series. It was thought that probably twenty five or more of the players participating In ths world s series will make the trip to the coast and taks part in a second reries for the benefit of far westsrn bass ball fans. Ths National commUalon will taks charge of all arrangements and handle tt in much the manner as ths world's series. The gate receipts will go toward defraying the expenses incurred during the series. The next meeting ot the Na tional coinmlision will be held In Phila delphia October 2, during the forenoon of the day set for the first gams. tMiK-rVl-thl Pisa Hlated. PHILADELPHIA. Oct. 1-PhlladelphU bass brll fnns were elated when ths news was flashed here that ths first two gnmes of the world's series between ths Phillies and the Red Sox would ba played In this city. There was also satisfaction expressed that the first game Is scheduled for October , aa ths town was eager, despite the fact that It has had five such series In the last six seasons, to hava ths games start at an early date. , Ths downtown offlcs of ths Philadel phia club was bombarded all morning slth Inquiries about the starting of the games. Now that the date and place have been fixed, the work of Installing more than a half hundred telegraph wires will be speeded up. Ths contrac tor who Is erecting tha extra bleacher seals and boxes has bis work well under way. Ths greatest problem facing ths club Is how to take care of requests for mors than M.NJ seats In a park ths capacity of which will be about 21.UM. So tar as possible, Philadelphia fans will be taken care of first.
