Mara In the ssventh round at Cincinnati PLAYERS NORTHWESTERN SAYS NAY TO THANKSGIVING GAME The athletic management at Northwestern univeriity at Evans-ton, III., has declined the proposal of the Nebraska Cornhuskers to play Thanksgiving day game In Lincoln. The Northwestern author-itiee wired today that they would expect to play Nebraska Nov. 23 and get the guarantee of $4,000 apeoified in the original oontract. Prof. R. D. Scott, acting director of athletics at Nebraska, announoed this afternoon that unless North-westsrn recsded from its demands, the game would be canoalled. The Nebraska di root or is considering tl proposaj from ths Camp Funston soldier team to play the Cornhuskers in Lincoln either Nov. 23 of Thankiglving day. Ths Kan-aas Aggies also have offered to meet the Husksrs in Lincoln en Turkey day. Cornhusker fo4lba.ll stock, In advance-of next Saturday's battle with Notre Dame,. went soaring Tuesday a- ! tf moon, when the Huskoi s took on the Cotner Bulldogs In a practice combat (on Nebraska field and smothered the suburmanltes, 39 to 0. The Bulldogs, outweighed by a substantial margin, could not stand up under the smashing; Cornhusker attack and the KJlne-Schlssler warriors piled up six touchdowns In a playing period of thirty minutes. The second half, which was slashed to ten minutes, found Husker substitutes in action and the Bulldogs, although battling with their backs up against the Cotner goal line, managed to balk the subs In the efforts of the latter to break through to another touchdown. Fullback Ernest Hubka, eleoted Tuesday to the captaincy of the Cornhusker team for the remainder of the season, was the main, driving rod of the Husker offense. Hubka ploughed through the Cotner line to two touchdowns and then ran up a third when he Intercepted a Cotner pass in mtd-field and raced across the Bulldogs' twenty-five yards( on, an end sprint, Howarth also registered touchdowns, the Kuskers using an offense which was a mixture of end runs, line buck; and forward passes. Howarth, playing at quarterback, displayed superb generalship in directing the Husker offense. Hubka's showing in the back field was one of the outstanding features, whjle .Sohellenberg, who recently recovered- from a month's sickness, played th left halfback position with his old-time brilliance. Brestel and McMahon, rated as regulars, were not In action Tuesday, but both are expected to be in the moleBklns during another practice clash, dated for Thursday afternoon, with Pat Norrls' Methodists from Nebraska Wesleyan. Captain Dickson, who represents at least half of Cotner's offensive strength, was not in physical condition to do himself Justice. Dickson was Injured during a scrimmage workout nearly four weeks ago and could neither buck the line nor block for the other Cotner backs with his customary aggressiveness. Left Halfback McLaughlin once broke away for twenty-five yards, on an end sprint while the Bulldogs also executed two successful foward passes. Strain to Knapple, which netted fifteen and ten yards. Other attempts on the part of the Bulldogs to drive down the field were halted by the Huskers' virile defense. , The Lineup and Summaryi Nebraska Pos.

'S III FJEjEITLE "Flu" Runs Its Course at Notre Dame and Team is Ready to " Tackle Cornhuskers. i m LINCOLN HIGH TO PLAY CAMBRIDGE (Special to The Star.) NOTRE DAME, Ind Oct JO.-In the big scrimmage Saturday, in which Coach Rockne took his two star halves, Bahan and Glpp, with him into the onks of the freshmen and held the varsity to a tie score, not a man re- rr'""d an Injury except Barry, who d his ankle when tackling the la. erlng-ram, Glpp" The Notre Dame eleven is In good shape and anxious for the big contest with Nebraska next Saturday in Lincoln. On other ex ception to this statement is Locks rd, the regular quarter, who is still limping and forbidden to drill or to get into a football suit, Rockne, however. thinks he will be In the scrimmage today. Rockne has been expecting this so long, though, that fans are skeptical. If Lockard cannot play Saturday, the N. V. coach must do one of two things he must give Mohn, a freshman, a trial, or he must call In Bahan from half to general the "fighting Irish" toam. Coach Rockne was not satisfied with the work of the team in the big test' he gave them Saturday. They were hold to a tie, and Rockne thinks, no matter how you view It, they -should have defeated the freshmen. Rockne s Judgmeift must be respected, but Notre Dame followers think he does not estimate highly enough Ms own part i the game, nor the stellar work of F-nhan and t3lpn. Bahan looked as If he would be downed In his tracks many a time when receiving punts, nut every time he succeeded in gaining at least fifteen or twenty yards. Glpp's stiff-arm many a time saved him from tackles that would have downed many a good man, and he and Bahan worked together In a way to teach football to their younger associates. With these two in their places In the varsity lineup, a different tale will be told, fans think. Rockne, who knows Nebraska and how the Cornhuskers play, is trying to drive some of his knowledge and respect Into the heads of his young team. He has ordered scrimmage every day till Thursday with the freshmen, who furnish the only opposition he can secure for them. Not one member of the team had any sign of influenza, and the disease. which was rather light at Notre Dame, has about disappeared. There has not been a new case for considerably over a week. Therefore hopes are high that nothing will prevent the long looked - for contest at the Nebraska capital the end of the week. Cured of Haoking Cough, 'Tor some time my little boy now five years old had a terrible hacking cough. We became very much alarmed about his condition and tried several different cough medicines, but nothing had the desired affect until we began using Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. This was just what tie needed. It relieved him at once and by continuing Its use for a short ttme he was well." writes Mrs. Chas. Brey-brook, Middlevllle, N. Y. Tou may well Imagine the deep gratitude of the mother under these circumstances, and that she is certain to recommend Chamberlain's Cough Remedy to her friends, and these personal recommendations account In a large measure for the popularity of this remedy. Advertisement Guarantee Question Settled and Red and Black Will Fill Turkey Day Date. The athletio managers of Lincoln and Cambridge high schools have agreed on financial terms, after a long distance colloquy lasting two weeks, and the situation today permits a definite announcement that the Lincoln squad will journey to the Furnat county town to fill its date for a Thanksgiving day game with the Cam-bitdge team. Originally, the agreement between the two managements called for a guarantee of $300 by Cambridge. The contract was entered into last April. Subsequently, railroad fares and other traveling expenses were Increased by govern tnntal decree, with the result that the Lincoln management declared it was impossible to get out even on the $300 basis. Principal Pickell and Head Coach Beck, acting for Lincoln, recently Informed the Cambridge management that the guarantee would have to be boosted 1400. The negotiations have been hanging fire, but a wire came to The Star today from Supt. C. L. Llttel of Cambridge conveying the Information that his school would Increase the guarantee to the $400 figure. Competent officials are to he selected by mutual agreement and the Cambridge management guarantees that the playing field will be pro. tected from possible invasion by spectators. ' Stat Title at Stake. The Cambridge-Lincoln game will have an important bearing on the outcome of the championship race In in terscho'astlo football circles. Cambridge is rated as the strongest team In the southwest section of the state. Lincoln has eliminated Beatrice, while York, another aspirant to championship honos, has to its credit a victory over South Omaha, which defeated Omaha Central in an early season gam. With Omaha Central out of the race, the three most formidable bidders for the title are Cambridge, York and Lincoln. ( The assurance that the York and Lincoln teams are to get together, despite the postponement . of their game scheduled for Oct. 2, will factor in a partial - settlement c? the championship question and possibly clear the way for an out-and-out title contest between Cambridge and Lincoln. Should both York and Cambridge trounce Lincoln and in event a comparison of scores could not solve the title problem, the state high sohool association might call on York and Cambridge to get together in a postseason game. Meantime, Lincoln will meet Its two most formidable rivals for the championship' and the Red and Black squad is In a position to establish a claim on the title that cannot be refuted even by Omaha Central. Lincoln Trims Husker Thirds. Coach Beck's Lincoln youths collided Tuesday afternoon at the M street field with Head Coach Kline's third Cornhuskers, the Red and Black team trimming the embryo Huskers, 13 to 6. A forward pass, Deffenbaugh to Lewellen, netted Lincoln Its first touchdown, but the Husker thirds evened the count by intercepting a Lincoln pass and crossing the Red and Black goal. Lincoln clinched the victory during the second half, when Pugh, an end. intercepted a Cornhusker pass and sprinted down the field and planted the ball behind the third team's goal. The Lincoln squad will depart Friday afternoon for Norfolk to clash with Norfolk, high in a Saturday game. Coach Beck of Lincoln and Principal Jones of York were in conference in Lincoln today In an effort to agree on a date for a York-Lincoln game. York is scheduled to play Falrbury on Nov. $. Beatrice recently drubbed Falrbury by such a decisive score that Principal Jones has requested Fair-bury to cancel the York gam. His team is in line for the championship apd the York man prefers to have it out with Lincoln on Saturday, Nov. 9.
