Score Not Indicative. That the score Is wit indicative of Nebraska's work Is shown by the fact that the njiuaker on six rtlfferent occaKiona carried the ball Into the shadow of the Oklahoma goal. Once In the first quarter by steady march they atoud upan the IS-yanl line of the ISooiieta, where Harmon tackled heavily dropped the ball, and the wiullieniers punted nut of danger, It watt In the second quarter, after one touchdown had been made, that Ihe Cot nlmsker Blurted a steady match down the field, but were cheeked momentarily. Then In the third quarter, getting the liall. on the klckoff. they marched from their ov. ZD-yard line across the field and the irresistible Halllgan carried the bull ever for the final Nebraska touchdown.

However it was not for the visitors to keep It. Punting out of danger undaunted the Cornhuskers again attempted to march down tho field. A forwurd pass end runs, and crushing attacks on the line brought the ball to the Oklahoma'! 10-yard line, and then to the 5-yard line where the Booners held for downs and Nebraska was forced to fall back while Oklahoma punted out of Oklahoma Score First. It was the ehnrges of Pennie Owens who drew the first blood. Nebraska had carried the ball to the ooirtherners' 18- yard Una and lost the ball In the first quarter on a fumble. Punting with the wind an exchange of punts gave the Oklnhomatis the ball on the line. Then come the first ex hibition of open play such as featured Ihe Sooner attack, Reeds executing a equalled on the local gridiron this year. forwurd pass, which has not been and which was excelled only by one later in the game.

W. MACBETH. New York, Nov. 23. A game that Is a game Is the general verdict on football as played' under the 1912 rules. The gridiron sport pleases first of all the spectators; it pleases the coaches, the players and the great student body. It took a great deal of tinkering and experiment to resurrect the blood-iia-rling autumn pastime from the debris of popular disfavor following the crusade which wrecked the good, old fashioned game of six years ago. The new "game seems to have been well worth tho -wait and the trouble. The old game came into disfavor because of the dangers incident to it. And these same dangers had a discouraging influence on the element most ditoctly concerned the student rjoay. Kro.n getting right down to cases, it was a test of muscle and brawm and not a competition of skill. It was smash, s-msh, smash through the line all the time with now and then an end run or a variation, worked in just to keep the on the anxious seat. Naturally a human battering ram would pick out the vfak-est spot in tho line on which to center an attack and woe betide the object of the charge. Speed, under the old rules. a natural advantage but not necessarily a vital issue. Piute strength came lirst, last -and all the time. The primitive qualification of class was stamina to stand up under punishment; pow to grind through a' wall of human dist ance. Under such conditions the game nat urally devolved into a survival of the fittest. None but a giant mleht ulsy with any amount of safety. Weaklings nan no place on the gridiron. Speed and cunning comblaed counted for but little unless, supplemented by exeimunul physical power. -Objectionable Features -Abolislnd The. game as played now sevias to have eliminated all the object imable features of the old style of plav and at the-same time retains all the more deelfjtble fundamentals. It Is quite ue that football was never meant for invalids. It is a game that requires cer tain physical perfections. But no 'anger is bulk; and beef the first requisite. Speed counts as much us brawn ami the agile, light fellow if perfectly sound has a better chance to shine than the big slow thinking giant. Modern football more than ever a game of skill. One of the greatest objection to the old style of play was the fact that the general attack was confined to mass formations. There was practically open field work. It was Impossible riom the stands to follow the ball Jay by play. Invariably the man carrying the spheroid was completely secreened by his interference. Except for a punt, a criss cross, an end run or some of the few variations from the battering lain style of attack, the spectator was in a sea of bewilderment from start to finish, The forward pass was mapped orig inally to open out the game throuna the necessity of scattering the defense. In this it served its purpose to some de-was looked upon with great disfavor by the coaches. There were too man. restrictions attached, and penalties its failure to be properly completed ma le It a rather questionable weapon. Forward Pass Liked. This year these restrictions have lain eliminated and the pluy has nnmed'at ly come into great favor. It Is very i-pcc-tacular and appeals to the general pafc-Iice. It leaves an opening for a lipht team to make consistent gains it would be utterly impossible to 'aln through a heavier line. A team uo.v I rs four chances, without penalty wttii -vor save tiie loss of the ball In case of absolute failure to make the necessity ten yards distance. One properly executed a forward pass Is good for doi'b'e or treble this amount. With any decree of proficiency a well schooled olven should make good on at least one four attempts. Undoubtedly the forward pass Ins revolutionized football hut It has riot yet been developed tq( i(s greatest wo th. The further it is perfected tho will be the possibilities of unexpected scoring which adds the spice of -'tieer-talnty. and makes competition all 'hit is to be desired. Wonderful intl-ed Las been the progress under the new so far this season. It looks as it the present code is bere to slay. TAIRBURY DEFEATED.
