Chicago defeated Nebraska in a brilliant game of football this afternoon by a score of 88 to 6. It was tho year's closing game for. both teams, as well as the, last appearance of Capt. Eckersall of the Maroons on tho gridiron. The Chlcagoans proved them selves beyond doubt the fastest players In I tho West, and Eckersall's valedictory could not havo beon improved on. The Nebraskans fought gamely to the ond, however, forcing Chicago to Its utmost speed for every Inch of ground. Tho Corn Hiipkern' much-touted fako and trick plu'ys did not figure extensively, but the ends kept their rivals cpnstantly on tho alert, as long, at least, as Johnson and Mason were In tho game. Eckersall booted five drop kicks In seven trials, The crowd went wild over him nnd after the game rushed onto tho field, boosted him on to their shoulders and carried him triumphantly from the grldiorn. Between halves he was presented with a diamond-studded gold watch, the gift of his friends, fellow students and the university faculty. IddlnQB Run Twenty Yards. Chicago' a first score was made on a twenty-yard run by Iddings for a touchdown. Walker kicked, goal. This scoro was soon doubled by two line bucks which took tho ball to Nebraska's three-yard line. Steffen was carried over for a touchdown and Walker again kicked goal. Some very brisk piny followed In which Nebraska fully held Its own until Eckersall made h pretty kick from the Corn Huskers' twenty-five-yard line, bringing the scoro up 1o 10 to 0. A few minutes later Steffen made twenty yards on a forward pass from Eckersall. Finally the Maroon captain made another kick from Nebraska's twenty-seven -yard lino, and the score crept up to 20. At last Nebraska chalked up its lone flvo points. Eckersall tried a forward pass but It went wrong and Nebraska got the ball on Chicago's fifteen-yurd lino. Little carried it ten yards. Craig went through center to the Maroon one-yard line and Little wont over for a touchdown, Harvey missed goal. Eckersall soon afterward dropkicked from the twenty-yard line and the half ended 24 to 6 in Chicago's favor. Two more kicks by Eckersall, one from the forty-five and one from the twenty-vard line increased Chicago's score to thirty-two early in tho second half. Then Steffen made a touchdown and Walker kicked goal. AVnlker, though ho bad scored a touchdown later, was called back for offside playing. There was sou:o stiff playing during the rest of the half, but no more scores were made on either side. Leo Do Tray was elected captain of tho Maroons at tonight's banquet of tho players.

LONG BROUGHT DOWN Miller and Shilling Fight in Saddle; Former Rides 5 Winners WASHINGTON, Nov. 24.Walter Miller was the marvel of the afternoon, riding tho winner In each of tho live flat races, the most sensation of which was the Ox-ford-Prctension-Ormonde's Right race. Oxford was tho favorite, but there was also a world of wlso money for Protenslon and a splendid play on Ormonde's Klght. Shilling broke Pretension away In front and led by three lengths to tho stretch, where Oxford drew up. As he drew alongside Shilling moved over with Pretension, currying Oxford to the extreme outside fenco. Beelng that Oxford would win Shilling, stung by Jealousy of Miller and knowing that his employers had an immense bet up, reached over and grabbed Oxford'H brldlo In an effort to throw the gray streak, and then a fight ensued betwoen the two enraged riders with their mounts K lunging along nt a second faster than tho est previous track record. Umpire Is Hissed NEW HAVEN, Conn,, Nov. 24. Tho hissing of Umpire Bill Edwards by Yule today was an act unprecedented in Yulo athletic history. Nover has a college official boon lilfisod before. Edwards penalized Yale again nnd again, twice taking her back to her five-yard line. On the last occasion thousands of Yale men hlseod all over the field. Edwards is tho official whom Yalo ro-fused to accept until Harvard threatened to cancel the game unless ho was ao- i " J IN TRYING H IOHT END. Miller struck Shilling to make tho latter release his hold of Oxford and tluui Jammed ovor on Pretension to gut Oxford off tho fence. IJoth straightened out their horses then, and Oxford cauio on to win by a length nnd a half from Pretension, with Ormonde's Right a fair third. Pre- tonslon was disqualified and hilling suspended for the balance of the meeting. Shilling fs a promising rider and his suspension ia unfortunate.
