thirteen after he had scooped up a for
ward pass, which Warnock fumbled, and

min pinying nis usual- rjruuanuy nasnmg
game. vv
Saba Put, In Action.
In the second half Stiehm tried out a
number of second string men and they
played better ball than those who first
started the game. L4U1 CakVV who .re
placed Cook at quarterback at the end
of the first half, shared wltq Chamber
lain and Rutherford the honors' ot the
day. Caley electrified the stands With a
stunning forty-five-yard return,' of a
klckoff on the first play and In returning
punts. His handling ot the forward paw
was sure.
The Nebraska backfield played mid
season foot ball, but the line, which has
been Stlehm'a worry, showed fatal, weak?
n esses and allowed Drake to pile up more
point than any Drake eleven has ever
scored against a Nebraska team., Buns,
the big Drake halfback, and Captain
Blackburn found It easy to slip through
for substantial gains. (

ers' first touchdown on a ten-yard sprint
around the end. Corrl kicked goal.

where a penalty put them back, but 1
Rutherford flipped a bealtlful forward
pass to Chamberlain and he crossed the
goal line on a fifteen-yard run. Corrl
missed goal.
Drake Pierre I.lne.

the field on an exchange of punts, and,
with Blodgett. Buns and Blackburn ham

the third quarter and dashed back forty
five yards with the klckoff before finally

A't the opening of the fourth" quarter.

Agriculturists from Manhattan,
. 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

t'onal Base Ball commlsaloa at Its

was amicably adjusted. President iai.c
of tha Phillies club agreed; to give ths
"Royal Rooters" 100 seats from tha
Philadelphia allotment. President Lan
nlng gave up tha sams number from thai
Boston allotment, while ths National
commission agreed . to contribute 209
eats from its share of ths tickets. 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.

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
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.
