The Cornhuskers slurred and loafed through sixty mim'te-= of torrid foot- hall yesterday atternoon on Nebraska field" and the tmal accounting dis- elo'-ed t'.at the Huskors hud trounce 1 Coach Kl'ne'n "Methodists from Nebraska Wesleyan to the moasre measure of 30 to 0. It \\as a ragged exhibition on the part of the pupils of Jumbo Stielim. vim. \vhilc tiiey won handily, flashed nothing in the line of tin eftei'- t u o offense which will be renuired in winning the cominjr engagements with the Kansas Jayhawkers at L.awrcn--' and the Iowa llawkeyes on the local gridiron. The penalty bu;;naoo w h i c h has hounded the Huskcrs all season btill was in evidence. Twice the pro- Te^es of Jumbo Stcilim were marching to touchdowns, only to be halted an set back because of their persistence in .s^ettins off-side. The Cornhusk3is Interference was leaky and the Methodists frequently broke through aiul downed the runner for a loss. Even the tjreat Chamberlain occasionally had trouble in negotiating his swinging sprints around the AVesleyan wings, although much of the distance gained by the Huskers was due ( o Chamberlain'* individual efforts. The absence of Captain R-itherfovd, Right Tackle Shaw and Right Half Rardiner doubtless factored in the Cornhusker's distressing showing, whi-o the excessive heat likewise initiated apainst fast football, but even those phases fail to alibi or explain aw^y the fact that the TXuskers played poor football. The romp 'Which the llusk- ers may have anticipated failed to materialize The Methodists, recovering from theij- fright during the openins period, buckled in and played their opponents practically to a standsti'l d u r i n a '!ic second and third quarters. Tho f i n a ; period .saw the Huskers was- in* a b i t i i e that w a s nearer up to form. Two touchdowns and a goal from placement by Corey comprised the H ifcker-' harvest in the: lust pcrio-1. whi during the. fourth quurtei two touchdowns were added to their previous ti'Ul. swelling the score to thirty pointy. Regulars Forced to Stick. Assistant Coach Hocftel, in charge of the Nehi.iska squad, had intended to relieve the regulars whenever it be- nmo apparent that victory was secure but the" Methodists put so much "pep into thcii fight that Koeffel dared run no risks until late in the fourth q u a r ter when the Huskers had boosted the total to thirty points. Calcy had succeeded Cook at quarter to start tao =ocond bait", while Kositzky was a t center in place of Moser, a lineup which remained intact until within ten runutes of the termination of the "·ime Then Hoeft'cl cut the strings on the svhs'Itutes, and they streamed on the gridiron u n t i l every position in the Fcbraska lineup but right haltback. uhere Pioctor held forth the entira 1'im.ieromont, was filled by a sub. Tlie Methodists made but one serious hid lor i touchdown, rmring the second period, Halfback Kline, standing in midfield, hurled a forward pass to Quarterback Eaton, who executed a r'cvcr catch and was downed on No- 'iraska's twenty-yard line, after a gain nf twentv-fivc yards. The Wesleyan rooters hi the north stand let loose a riot of enthusiasm, which quickly was turned to dejection when L'aton wis -ailed back and his gain disallowed for the infliction of a five-yard penalty Hull, tin- Methodists' left end, was m the backtield and running 1 toward the Wesleyan line at the time the ball was -.napped--a violation of the rules which specifies a penalty. Wesleyan's only hope to gam ground consistently res'- ed on the use of the forward pass. The Methodists tried nine passes and not one was successful. Late in the Courth period, when they were gaining ground on the Husker reserves, the VVesleyar players frittered away their chance for a touchdown by persisting in hammering at the line, when a forward pass or two might have enabled them to set away' for the substantial trains needed to cross the Huskers' goal Fullback Durham and Quarterback Eaton v.-ere the Hethodists' mainstays when on the offense, while Halfback Kline occasionaly broke away for a eprint around end, yet Wesleyan lacked the beef anr speed to consistently work the ball down the field. Started As a Romp. The combat started as if the Huskers were destined to romp over and around the Methodists virtually as they -were pleased. TVesleyan won the toss and chose to receive the kickoff while defending the west goal. Corey kicked off f i f t v raids and Eaton covered ten yards on his return. Three plunges by Eaton and Durham netted eight, yards when a Wesleyan back fumbled and Nebraska downed the oval on Wesle 1 "- an'si thirty-one yard line. Quarterback Cook signalled for a split buck on the first play and Fullback Otoupalik charged Straight through.the line and severed seventeen yards before being ourled to the turf. Chamberlain then j'oared nine yards on an end sprint. Seller bucked off tackle for three ya'-d and OtOiipalik smashed through for a '·rml and planted the ball behind ttt? Methodists' poal. The Huskers had "ounted in less than three minutes of play. Corey's goal kick went over the crossbar and between the upright ~, ;md the count stood: Xebraska 7. Wesleyan 0. After the succeeding kickoff and an exchange of punts, the Huskers secured possession of the ball on Wes- ievan's forty-yard line. Cook reeled o:' r fifteen yards on a run around end from punt formation, Sclzer hit the line for two yards and Chamberlain ·ped around end for ten yp.rdn. We^le- yan was set back five yards for off side play and Proctor rammed Tiis way through for eight yards. Another easy touchdown was in sight, but the Husk- I'rs were offisde and the penalty halted theii advance, the Methodists taking lh" ball on downs, on their three, yard line. Hinman punted t h i r t y - f i v e yard' from belnnd his own goal and Cook lucked it bael; thirteen yards b.'foiv h« inrr tji'-kled.

Quarterback Holbrock, of Dartmouth, uncorked a twenty-five yard forward pass to Emery in the middle of the fourth period which resulted in the downfall of the Red and Blue, this afternoon, 7 to 3. Emery rushed across the Roal line with the only touchdown of the same with a half dozen Pennsylvania tacklers at his heels. Dartmouth ·, displayed fine offensive and defensive work, but the game of the big Green team was marred by faoquent fumbles. Pennsylvania played hard football, but wat outclassed and would have been badly beaten had the Dartmouth backs been able to hold the ball.

New York, Nov. 6.--Today's football results greatly clarified the situation in the east regarding a possible championship. Pitt eliminiated Washington and Jefferson, conqueror of Yale, in a decisive fashion, 19 to 0. Princeton can no longer hope to contest the prestige of Cornell, for the Ithacans defeated Haivnrd by a larger score than Harvard dealt tho Tigers. As a result of today's grimes, Pitt and Cornell loom up as the two best elevens in tho east, with little Colgate slightly in the lear.

Score Tied At End Of Second Quarter. Deadlocked In Third. Then Purdue Wins. G TO'f 1 Til! En a UIL Missouri Lacked the Punch and the Purple Wins Game Princeton Is Whipped By the Wonderful Work Of Captain Eddie Mahan. Crimson Swept Old Nassau! Squad Off Its-Feet Dur- First Period. Princeton, X. J., Xov. 0.--This isn't Princeton's year, after all. A brilliant Harvard offensive, 1'ivot- inK at all times around th- incomparable Edclio Maha.n, .swept the host Tig-er cloven in years off its toot in the quarter of this afternoon's annual gruliron battle, and for the iourth consecutive year the red Hag of (""am- b rid Re is floating; on high over Princeton's tonight. The score was 10 to (i, and it was reached after M x t v minutes of as heartbreaking loolball as 40,000 followers of the pa me who w i t - nessed the tussel ever saw. Time and titne again the Tuera, surprised by the bewildering; attack of Mahan, recovered and started what looked like a sure march ^traiq-ht to the Crimson goal. Hut each time. Mahan either directly or indirectly broke up the attack and nrmK*. the Big Princeton fullback was forc.'d to punt. tyahan was everywhere--and cveiv- thing. His open held running- was marvelous-. Running, knees hish. twistmcr, squirminpr. writhing in and out at almost incredible speed, the bn? j Crimson star shook off Tiger tackl"-s almost at will. It was's perfect forward pass to Harte in the first quarter that started the Tigers on the, downward | p.ith. With the ball exactly in the center of the fleld, Captain Kddic made a perfect throw to the speeding Crimson end, who placed the oval on tho_ Tigers' 20-yard line. Eddie was called through the line, and he' 1 four yards. Then King was given tho ball and he squirmed his way through sixteen yards of tacklcrs for the first touchdown. Mahan kicked goal. Princeton rooters woic stunned. Thi'V thought it was a Princeton year, and they had hopes that were almost belief that the Crimson would be held scoreless. Mahan added the other three Harvard points in the n»xt quarter, whMi after missing a touchdown by inches, ho booted a goal from placement. Some Tiger Glory. Princeton, although defeated, wa^ not without glory. Young Dave Tibbott, nineteen years old, attended to that. AH of Princeton's six points came off his right toe. Twice after the Harvard line had checked the Piince- ton march the "young veteran." booted the bal: through the posts w i t h almost stoical precision. Princeton didn't lose because of hard luck. She lost bc ause the Crimson played better football. M a h a n outpuntcd Dngss by about ten a n : ^ to the kick. Many of the Crimson | leader's punts went sixty and seventy | yards. i There was an exodus of both Princeton and Harvard adherents immediately after the game. The Harvard contingent. sevcial thousand strong, left irnediately for Xeu York to give their young a n d nnU-ammolod spirits free rein. '1'ixcr students followed--to drown theiis. The gloom in Princeton tonight could bo cut with 'i knito. It was tha.t thi k. For weeks Tiger students had believed that :it last "their year" hatl come, it t ami- all right--to a :-top when it met Eddie Mahan.

Then followed two golden years at Kansas while Nebraska was triumph- l i n t In ".17 and ".IS. Th- latter year wa.s Yost's year at Nebraska and the present "Hurry-up" tutor at Michigan transferred his activities to Kansas in 'Oil nnd piloted the Jayhawkers to a decisive victory over their northern foes. Tlio year of 1!)00 saw "Bummy" Huotli, f i o m o r star at Princeton, the coaching reins at Nebraska and d u r i n g four successive campaigns protegca enjoyed the annual sensation nf sw.impi.-ig the jayluivvkers under n deluge of touchdowns. The gruelling battle of 190::. which the spectacular Johnny Bender won for Nebraska by virtue of a 75-yard run to the lone touchdown of the day, resulted in a. r u p t u r e of relations. Kansas had demanded that two Nebraska players be barred for havingr dallied with "summer baseball," and Nebr.ihku. refused to accede. Uender was one of the players whose part i c i p a t i o n was protested, and Kcndcr won the game, single-handed, the Kansas guve way to their wrath and cancelled relations. Peace Patched in 1906. Rut it was inevitable that the breach would be healed. Kansas needed a Nebraska game to round out its season, w h i l e Nebraska was just ns anxious for a renewal of the annual battle \vith the Jayhawkers. So Kansas sued for peace and the Cornhusksra, not being resentful, agreed to terms which bound both institutions never to raise the question of eligibility, each contracting to take the word of the other. The renewal of relations in lOOd saw the Jayhawkers invade Lincoln and trouco the Husk- c-rs 8 to C, Kansas kicking two goal* from placement, while the Cornhusk- (rs had to be content with a toucn- dovvn and subsequent goal. Nebraska turned the tables in 1307--"King" Cole's first year at the Lincoln insti- t u t i o n -- b u t In 'OS the Jayhawkers upset the dope by whipping the northerners -0 to 5.

Tommy's feat being achieved only two minutes prior to the blowing of the whistle. Nebraska came bail* with a victory in 1010 at Lawrence in a contest which was fairly easy for the Huskers, despite the apparent tightness of the score. , K. U. Easy Since Stiehm Came The regime of Jumbo Stlehm at Nebraska began in 1911 and for four successive years the Jayhawkers 'ha^e been drinking from the cup of Jefeat. In their first collision with the "Stiehm roller," tne Jayhawkers were tlatened out and otherwise maltreated to the measure of 28 to 0, the Huskers piling up five touchdowns, while their own goal never was in jeopardy. The bat- tie of 1912 was in doubt until the final period of piay, when the rfuakers reeled off two ' touchdowns incl triumphed 14 to 3.
