V COLORADO MAKES COOD START Showi Up' to Satisfaction of Man-ag-eri Against Preps. FOUJT iIEAVY MO FOE THE LUTES Inrr, the Two II and red Poaiier Who XV nn Tackle, Will B Shifted to th Guard Thta Year. 'jiOULDER, Colo., Sept. 28. (Special.) The first Una on the prospects (or the University of Colorado 107 team wo obtained In the game of last Saturday, when the 'Varsity rolled up S3 points to the Preps 0. After the game coachea and managers were more than enthusiastic about the prospects of the line, but rather duhioua about the backs, as, the material for the latter appears fflTbeat to be little more than mediocre. Captain Nat Farns-worth played at both center and fullback, showing to good advantage In each place. If a center can be found strong enough to take his place on the line the captain will make one of the strongest men In a western backfleld. He Is unusually strong, carries the ball well and never falls to pick a hole. At center he has been the terror of all tils opponents, on offensive plays seldom falling to break through and lead the Interference, while on the defensive he Is one of the hardest men on the eleven to push' aside or box. Foar Heavleu for Lla. Four heavy men are being tried for Ms line position, any one of whom looks food. These are Roller, a three-year insn; Welner, a "C" man of last year; 4rtner, a Pueblo boy, and Newton, a freshman from Sallda. Welner will probably make the strongest bid of the quartet, as he can be used as a plunging fullback on line bucks through center, where his 19S pounds will serve him to good advantage. He Is one of the fastest men on the team, outrunning all but two of the squad In practice the other talght. Roller la slightly heavier than Welner, but makes a better guard than a center, having had two years' experience in the place. If not needed for the pivot position, he will undoubtedly hold down One of the guards. Newton Is powerfully built, standing 5 feet 10 and tipping the beam at about IX. He la almost new to the game, only having had a little experience on his high school eleven. If he falls to make the team this year, and Ills chances are excellent, ho will make good next fall, when he has the advantage' of the one year's experience. Ortner, the last of the four i appear in a suit, has Ijad four years' high school experience and one year the Michigan scrubs under Tost. He will make a hard fight for the job, although he Is In bad condition on account of a recent illness. Ladd, a fifth man, Is working for center, but stands no show to make good this fall on-. account of his lack of weight and experience. He will aid theyvaralty, however, by being given a chstdl on the reserves. f . Darr Goes to Guard. Harr, the 203-pound tackle of last year, has been shifted to guard and will probably be kept there till season. He Is considered the best lineman In the west and can, upon :ccaslon, be utilized In carrying the ball. For his teammate, Ktmmel Is the strongest available candidate, aside from the center man. He played on the team last year snd served on the second eleven In 190C. He weighs about 180 pounds and handles Mmsclf well. He is particularly strong on Jefenstve work. Tackle material is unusually strong, and Coffin, .a three-year man, alone seems to hsve a cinch on the Job. He Is pitted l against O'Brien, a husky freshman; But- -Ag.ers, nail, zimmers, uon, nooison, xjovv jf, Hynds, Prince, Shepherd, Mengel, A Schade and Blake. O'Brien appears the Vtwst, but the coaches will In all likelihood shift him to the back field. Ortner mlkht be Used here. In case he falls to make good at center. For end only two available men have so far turned out. They are Morrison and Morrll, the two ends of the 1906 team. Both are fast and . good offensive players, ilthpugh the former plays in on defensive, defect that the coaches are trying to remedy, as Colorado college scored over him last year with a forward pass. Heaton, who has played on the second eleven for two years, would make the team on ao-pount of his speed and knowledge of the game, but hla weight will render him Ineligible. Nlcol, a sophomore. Is out for the lob. but does not seem to be up to the tandard. Mills looks good, but lacks ex-. perlence, snd nothing can be Judged of his 'plaiylng until later In the season, when tljf ;te.m hepins to be lined up. ' ' In the back field the roaches are trying to develop two sets of backs, one light snd the other heavy. For the first set M. Reld Is by far the best of the candidates for full. He weighs sbout 153, follows his Interference well, and handles punls In the back Held the best of any man on the team. He Is the captain of the basket ball team, his practice there standing him in good stead In catching the forward pass. He Is being pushed by Thomas, who was fullback last year. The latter is heavier than last fall, but falls to follow 1 his Interference to good advantage, chars-1 Ing blindly Into a mass. Instead of seeking s hole. Haley, a freshman, is a clever lodger and Is a good ground gainer, but tumbles frequently. Boak and llayt are the most promising candidates for the Mher half in this set. The development of a heavy set of backs u a serious question, and one on which the coachea are devoting a large amount 3f work. Bowler will make a good man, but will not be In shane until later In th season. Farnworth or Welner are being ronsldered for full, with O'Brien for one ittlf and Roberts, Knowles. Mills or Pushe "orhe other. All of the latter weigh over :'jfnd have had at least one year's ex-er1enc. ttrrett quarterback. From the showing In the prep game It ippcar likely that BUrrett win hold down he quarterback' position, the most hardly contested for on the team. He ran the iam well, being given entire charge by he captain, while his quarterback runs ere a feature of the play. He is fast nd usually leads the interference. His losest opponent ia Randolph of the 1M eaerves. while Van Metre and Wilson are etter than average. Van Metre la the st punter of the four and handles punts o better advantage, but falls to use his iead la running off the plays, i Every effort will be made during the next wo weeks to perfect the forward passes, wo of which netted the team In the prep ;ame a total of IS yards.

Bitting: VICTORY FOR CORNHUSKERS Eleven from Normal School Smothered in the First Game. USABLE TO HOLD THE TAESITY Cornhwakers Go Around the Ends aud Taroogh the Line at Will Game Spectacular, If It . Was One Sided Contest. (From' a Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN, Neb., Sept. 28. (Special.) By the old-fashioned score of 63 to 0 Nebraska university opened the foot ball season this afternoon, smothering the Peru Normal eleven In two' short halves. The game was attended by clear weather, but was played on a soggy field, which prevented a degree of speed, which might have been made posslbls. In both teams otherwise. Throughout the thirty-nv minutes .of play the Cornhuskers' opponents were unable to make distance a single time! The ball was almost constantly in the possession of Nebraska, however. The Cornhuskers forfeited the ball a number of times in the first half by fumbling, but were never held for dewns and were forced to punt only once. Several of Nebraska's nine touchdowns came as a result of long runs, Weller, Burnett and Cooke vlelng with each othr in lugging the pigskin down the field. The open style of play was used almost entirely by the Cornhuskers, only being varied by old-time line plunges, at which Fullback Kroger and Captain Weller proved consistent gainers. The Nebraska line was Impenetrable and had little trouble In breaking up the plays of the visitors. Occasionally one of the heavy men was called back to carry the ball, but for the most part the gains were made by the backs. Minor played the greater part of the time at quarter for Nebraska, but during the second half was relieved by Cooke, who had entered the game some time before taking Craig's place at end. Cooke at once began to tear off the sort of plays that made . him famous last year, one run for sixty yards and a touchdown being made by wonderful dodging straight through the Peru line. Longer runs were made both by Cooke and Weller, but the sprint was the prettiest feature of the afternoon. - Scoring; Commences Earl)'. l was evident early In the game that the score was to be a big one. Play started promptly at S:30, with Captain Swenson kicking off for Peru. Burnett returned the ball to Nebraska's forty-ysrd line.

The kick went wild, but Peltier got the ball on the ten-yard line. Burnett went over for-the second; touchdown In the southeast corner of the field. The ktckout to Minor was a poor one, and Nebraska lost Us chance to kick goal. Score: Nebraska, 10; Peru, 0. v Craig got the next klckoff. but on the second down the ball went to Peru on a fumble. Peru could not make an Inch In two downs, and Collins punted to Weller. who brought the ball back to the forty-yard line.

PENNSY TO HAVE HARD CONTESI All Rfforts Are Being; ttralnesl at Ann Arbor to Pat Mlcklgan - Team In Brat of Trim for Games. 1 ANN ARBOR, Mich., Sept. 2S.-(SpeclaI.) By far the most encouraging: news that has greeted the foot ball enthusiasts returning to Ann Arbor. Is the fact that "Germany" Schults and Rhelnechlld of the 1907 eleven are again eligible and will be back In their old positions as center and guard. Schults, whom Yost called the greatest center in the game, will do much with, his enormous bulk to bolster Up the line, which was the weak point In 1905. Schulte, Schults and Rhelnschtld composed the famous "Dutch Brigade." Schulte was still In school last year, but had played his allotted four years and was permanently Ineligible. Of the other veterans. Captain Magoffin, Newton, Loell, Oraham, Patrick, Davison and Rumney are back and taking part In the dally workout. The present problem for Hurry-up Yost's consideration seems to be the quarterback position. There are number of likely candidates, but none who have had any varsity experience. Bishop, who was In that place during the early part of the 190tj season, is not back for practice and Wheeler, last year's quarter for the reserves. Is also absent. Contest for Quarter. At present the fight seems to be between Joy Miller, quarter of one of the freshman teams of 190$, and Wasmund, who "played a star end for tne rhellglbles last year and was halfback on the Lafayette college team two year ago. Wasmund Is a spectacular and aggressive player and is superior to Miller In his defensive play,. If in anything. Miller has had almost as much experience, however, aa he was on the winning class team last year and went through several seasons In fast prep school compsny. To fill the hole Johnny Garrells left at fullback two men are being tried Jaok Loell, much admired last year for his versatility, and Allerdlce, a star punter from the last year's freshman engineer clasa eleven. Loell la. not so heavy nor so fast as Garrells was, but he has a whirlwind style of line plunging that always brings results. Allerdlce's strong point is his kicking. Unless he makes the team there will be no one of known ability as a punter. He won a number of class games lsst fall with his kicking alone and this fact makes hit chances for a place on the 'varsity excellent. . - Lino aa It la at Present. At present the line Is as follows: Feather-stone, .left end: Joyce, left tackle; Patrick, , left guard; Schults, center; Oraham. right guard; ' Crumpackex, right tackle; Casey, right end. Captain Magoffin will play at loft half and Rumney, Douglas and Crum-packer are fighting for the other side. Loell and Allerdlce fullback and Miller and Wasmund quarter. Rhelnschlld wilt t take his old place at left guard as soon as he is in condition and Davison" wilt ' probably try for a tackle position. Flanagan, a big sophomore, of whom much was predicted last year, has not been able to -get Into condition yet and la working with the scrubs. . '.''. With this material to work with Yost has his old-time smile and confident determination to retrieve last year's defeat at the hands of Pennsylvania. If all goes well the eleven from Philadelphia will not meet the aame sort of a crippled team that they beat In 180s. It will be one of the old-time "Yost machines" and to defeat It will take a foot ball eleven of mora power than Pennsy had In 190. . The outlook for the eastern school Is also favorable, however, and the final contest oil November It promises to be a battle worth while. ... ' In the short three or four days af train- ' ing Yost has kept l his men af hard prao- ; tlce. Since there were so few novloea the elementary work which usually takes several weeks of valuable time was eliminated altogether and signal practice with two squads working was begun Monday . afternoon. Formations have been simple, of course, to begin with, but the forward pass la evidently going to be used, as It has been tried with Loell, Featherstone and Wasmund as the principal factors. , H est on Wants to Bo Assistant. On the athletic field during the early part of the week a man who attracted almost as much attention as the candidate was "Willie" Heston, an old-time star, Heaton was one of the few western stars who was ever honored by recognition on the so-called all-American' teams which eastern sporting writers frame up. It Is reported on the campus that he Is after a position a assistant ' coach, but It is not likely that he can be used, as Dtreotor Balrd declares the finances of the Athletic association would not warrant the hiring of additional help. Ferry field has been Improved during tho summer and the ordinary seating capacity of the bleachers la now . 17.S0O. These bleachers surround only three sides of the gridiron and the erection of temporary stands will make It possible for 28,000 people to see the Pennsy game In comfort. The 'varsity schedule as announced contains six regular games, with on open date. None of the games are with th bigger western schools snd Interest Is focused on the November 16 game. Ohio university and Vanderbllt are also ex pected to be dangerous. Th schedule as announced, exclusive of practice game with the reserves, is as follows: -Oct. Case, at Ann Arbor. Oct. 13 Michigan Agricultural college, at Ann Arbor. ' Oct. 19 Wabash, at Indianapolis. Oct. W-Ohlo university, at Ann Arbor. Nov. J-Vanderbllt, at Nashville. Nov. Open data.
