Through three quarters; .the Jayhawkers fought the Cornhusk-. era to a standstill and victory seemed in their grasp In the last quarter when Weidline executed a beautiful ' : field goal. The hopes of KansaW'wene doomed to die, when In the closing moments of the game Captain Frank of Nebraska got away for a seventy yard run and a touchdown. The score by Frank waa Immediately followed with another by Howard, Nebraska's end, - who intercepted a " forward pass and raced a second seventy yards to the Kansas goal The goals by Towl completed Nebraska's score. The game was the biggest one of the year on Nebraska's schedule. It was a sensational one. Before thousands who packed the stands on both sides of the .field, the game furnished all theqrills possible for a game to fur nish. The swelling and ebhlns- of hoM. pair ind then final victory a moment after it had seemed that notftj remained but aeteat, were more than enough to give the game a place in football history at the University of Nebraska. Color, life, enthusiasm, noise and strife, all had their part In the contest Hands played, crowds cheereU, spirit was rite. rl he came was a social event for Lincoln. In the stands were packed hundreds of former students of Nebraska, many supporters from the Kansas institution, and students and residents of Lincoln. The crowd filled the stands on both sides of the field to overflowing and lined both ends. Three bands rhe Nebraska -university cadet organisation, the Kansas cadet crtan'snilnn end the Fourth Infantry band from Fort Crook vied with each other tn lively music befitting the occasion. '' Warren Howard the Star.. -To Wnrrn. Hnwnrit flrat vpar mnn 'jW on the Nebraska team, must be given fmip ! BMJch ir mi more rreult a mils' te to Ernest Frank, Cornhusker caiNfin. It was Howard who gave FrailNihe chance for his vlctory-mak- inir si nt. w hen Cornh'isker hopes were the darkest, when the ball was on Nebraska's one 'yard line, it was Howard who on a beautiful fake punt sprinted from his own goal to Ne braska's thlrtyyard ltne. Frank on the very next play was away for his seventy yard dash. . But the run of Frank was only possible whf-n Howard succeeded lnt boxing Brownlee, raptaln and end of Kansas, whose pre vious smashing tackles of the game (stilled to ' his ability to nip Frank's run before it had fairly ptarted. Add to this brilliant perfor mance Howa-d's sprint for the second touchdown after he had Intercepted a pa from Kr.nsas. , Although Howard sided Frank In getting away on his long run to vic tory, it was not Howard who made the run. The performance of Frank in the open field, dodging and evading all Kms tx-Hes. was pi Hilton a any one play since Johnny Bender madcHils famous sprints. In maklnt the run, Frank used the tactics of his older brother Owen, Nebraska's premier half of last year. Cutting through tackle in the hole made by Howard and Swanson, Frank doubled back In his very tracks and ran In front of th- secondary defense, stlff-armlng and dodeiiie all comers. He fairly ran swy from the Kansas backs and prettilv dodged Wl'son, Kansas quarter, who made a brilliant but futile . effort tn stop him. Other Good Work. Howard and Frank were the real stars of the game and their work alone brought victory to Nebraska. But It Is not to be Inferred that the rest of the NYhraska team as well as the Kansas f -rurfly, piaylng half opposite Frank, played ban or the stellar variety, although It did not show up so conspicuously as that of the other two, Purdy's line" plunges In some stages of this tame were ' the ' only plays on whl"h Dip Coruhuskers could e-aln. Fnunllv dood was his defense. When Kansas v. as trying a series of forward passe? In a last desperate effort to bring victory, Purdy cleverly spoiled the first two. Howard was away, for a touch-lown on the third. . Towle, who relieved Potter at Muarter back at the opening of the fourth period, again demonstrated his ability as a field general. As the case In the Minnesota game, Towle had hardly entered the game before Nebraska play opened up. His two goal kicks following the touchdowns were true and the ball passed over the center of the bar neither too high, nor too low. In Nebraska's line Swanson was a lemon. Besides assisting In openlne (he hole through which Frank raced :jn his sensational run, Swanson was In the game all of the time. Whenever there was a fumble behind the Kan-as line, it was always Swanson who covered the ball. On several instances he made good distance on tackle around plays. As for the rest of the line, its work was neither better nor worse than the rest of Its work during the season. Herman at the opposite tackle from Swanson played his usual consistent gam. The guards and center however w comparatively weak and play af- kT play by ahe Kansas backs went through for distance. Luck Againat Kansas. No matter what the score, luck was decidedly against Kansas. Three times victory seemed in their grasp only to be snatched away by a trick of fate, once the ball was on Nebraska's one yard line. Another time It was on the two yard llne- In the latter case the ha.ll was In the Jayhawkers posses- sion. J3ut they could not score. Luck waa factor. By a series of Una plunging; Bteuwe and Deltwiler advanced the ball within striking distance. Goaded on by the dull monotonous yell of "stonewall" from the stands, the Nebraska forwards rose to the occasion and hurled back, Kansas' further attempts at the line. The Jayhawkers were held for distance. There on the two yard line Howard drew back for a punt. The pass waa true; Howard kicked. But the kick waa blocked from behind the Nebraska troalv line. Fate directed the ball and It fell, hot behind the line but in front. It was recovered by Swanson. Howard on the second attempt- punted to safety; What would have been the result! had the ball fallen within the goal line and there covered by a Jay-hawker is conjecture. Fate once more directed and that in the very opening. Maglll, speedy and sensational quarter ' back of the visiting aggregation, waa injured in the play following the kick off in the very opening of the struggle. On Maglll rested the speed department of the team. But he was so badly injured that he had to be taken from the game before it had really started. Wilson who took his place played good ball,' at quarter, but Wilson waa only a substitute and his work could not command the confidence of the rest of the players- that the presence of Maglll could. , - An Honorable Defeat .. Summing it all up, Kansas did not merit the defeat reserved for it The line, though lighter than the Corn-(tuskers', - was impenetrable. Consistently thj forwards fought back, the same plunges which carried Purdy far through the Michigan line of last year. The end held down in the persona of Price and Captain Brownlee were redoubtable. On the back field, however, depended the Kan sans' work. Martin, Steuwe and Detweiler, halt backs and full, played viciously In advancing the ball and backed up the defense of the line firmly. Weidline, who was responsible for Kansas' only score, was a star, both as a forward and m a kicker. Ills field goal from, the twenty yard line was perfect. If figures of the game are to be telled on, .Kansas should have been the victor. Wilson outpunted Howard, Penalties also added much more to the Jayhawkers' total distance of advancing the ball than it did to Nebraska's distance. Besides, Kansas, except in the first and lust quarters, carried the ball from the snapper-back probably twice the distance as did Nebraska. Tho first quarter was undoubtedly the Cnrnhuskers' The locals advanced the ball farther and held nearly every attempt of Kansas at distance. The second and third periods, however, were just as unquestionably Kansas. On advancing the ball Kansas doubled Nebraska's distance. The Kansans did not play tho opin game. Nebraska did. Therein lay thi difference. Forward passes did not play a significant part in the contest. Kansas attempted six, one for twenty yards' train,- one for three yards, one for a Nebraska touchdown and all others failures. Nebraska attempted five, one called back by the . referee and the others failures. The one called back was attempted following a kick off, Towle to Howard, but was disqualified. Towle caught the ball on his one yard lino and It was from this position that Howard euosequently carried it thirty yards and Frank later seventy, A s Penalties. N&brnjrttil had the worst of it. Nebraska drewof its share five, amounting In all to eighty yards. Kansas was penalized - fifty-hve yards In four times. The Game in Detail. At 2:59 Pearson kicked off to 5teuwe, who returned twenty yards. Quarterback Maglll was injured in interfering for the runner and was retired, Wilson taking his place.

Mass., Nov. 16. Harvard, using only a part of Its reputed offense tactics, defeated Dartmouth to- aay, s to 0. The crimson played a con-: aervatlve game. Its goal line waa never threatened by the green jersey team, and Its principal battrles of attack to be used, aranst Yale next Saturday are still uncovered. The only score of the same was a ! field goal In the third period bv Brick- ley, Harvard's kicking back. Brlckley nia inree oiner opportunities 10 score in the seme way, but a flukey wind or hurried kicks spoiled each attempt. Engle-horn of Dartmouth tried two place kicks, each from the forty vard line, both of which went wide. Lack of a few seconds additional time robbed the crimson of a touchdown. The game ended wl.h the ball In Harvard's possession on Dartmouth's two yard line, where it had been brought on three rushes after Brink-ley had Intercepted a. Dartmouth forward pass and had run to the green's ten yard line. WARREN HOWARD, Nebraska's left end. whose daring run out from behind his own goal line, allowed Frank to get away for his run. .Howard later scored on an Interested pass.

Princeton and Tale, In their annual football battle on University field today, played each other to a I to 6 tie. The team were so evenly matched that neither had power to rush the ball to a touchdown. Each team had a stone wall defense, and all the scoring wa done on goal front Ui flelo, and a goal from placement ' For Princeton, the hero of tha game wa Hobart Baker, who made both of the blank and orange field goal. Both were easy chance and came In the second period. Flynn, the tall full back of the Yaie team, was the first man to make a score. In the first period he kicked a goal from placement from within the twenty-nve-yard line. Princeton surprised Tale by, the aggressiveness of her attack and the strength of her defense. Tale's line had been heralded as being almost impossible of being penetrated, but the j Tigers nearly every time they smashed Into It made a gain. The trouble was they could not keep up the terrific pace, and weakened as they neared the Tale goal line. The Tigers got the ball within the blue sixteen-yard line In the second period, and being unable to carry It over 11. Baker tried for the Held goal and made It. Tiger 8uperior at Start. In the first two periods Princeton slightly outplayed Yale In ail depart- men s except kicking. In which Kiynn had a decided advantage over Dew lit. Yale made but few downs In the first two periods and resorted to much kicking, as she had a strong northwest wind at her back. In the third and last periods, however, the Yaie men took a decided brace and penetrated the Princeton line with great success. ' Yale broke Into scoring In the first period as the indirect result of a fumble. The New Haven team being unable tr gain, Klynn punted to Princeton's fifteen -yard line. In his anxiety to get the ball "Htew" Baker fumbled, and Avery recovered the pigskin. After fblllng to gain by two smashes against tho Princeton line, Flynn kicked a beautiful goal from placement from the twenty-live-yard line. The perlnl ended with no further scoring. Princeton scored a field goal early In the second period, also as an indirect result of a fumble. The period opened with Yale in posesslon of the ball.- Falling lo make any Impression on the Tiger line, Flynn punted and the kick was almost Immediately returned by Waller. Quarterback Wheeler, who was back to receive the punt, let It silp through his arms and Andrews, the Princeton left end, fed on It. "Stew" Baker made four yards against the left side of the Yale line, and then "Hobey" Baker dropped back to the thirty-live yard line and booted a neat held goal, tying the score at 3 and 3. . The third score which placed Princeton In the lead came late In the third period. After an exchange of punts, Princeton worked the ball on good rushes by DeWItt to within ten yards of Y'ale's goal. Here the blue line held and Captain Pendleton called upon 'Hobey" Baker Jo try for anothed' goal It was easy for Baker, the ball going directly between the goal poats from the fifteen yard mark. The third period, except for the uncovering of the unsuccessful forward passes on the part 'of Yale, was uneventful. Then came the last, In which Princeton's hopes rose as the minutes passed, only to be suddenly dashed by Pumpelly's goal. Hew the Battle Wa Waged. Yale took the goal with the wind at her back li. Baker, Princeton, kicked off out of bounds, but the ball was put In place by Yale for a klckoff from the Yale 40 yard line, Baker gained 6 yajds through the Yale tackle and an offside play gave Princeton Ave more yards.
