'' J -^INB :¥· SS°f± On the Sporting Pike By HOMER JOHNSTON RIPPLED TEAM WILL IEET YORK SATURDAY. X Coach Herb Reese believes ho haft complicated malady in his Red and lack football camp. H is a comblnu- on of injuries, sickness ;xnd over- onfidencc, the latter due to the vlct- ries of the high school team. On tonday there were four first string layers out at practice, on Tuesday ve or six and en Wednesday the inks were far from being rilled. The ;sult is that the Lincoln lads tire- in leir worst slump since the opening I the season. Though most of the injured and sick laers will be able to take part in aturday's game with York, it is sil- icst certain that Grittm. the cruck ilfback will be out of the game. HU suffering from a bad case of charlev orse and the present cold weather ill do nothing to help him recover e has not been able to enter any of le scrimmages this week aud Coach eese has given up hopes of using him i Saturday. Jimmy Colliers, who replaced Grif- n in Wednesday's workout, will -obably be given first call at the job r yncoop. Lamb, or Stoll may possibly 5 put in for a few minutes at half- ick. Capt. Brian and Cypreanscm arc 3th in good condition and will beady for Saturday. Webb, who has a id shoulder, will be able to play* mine he injures it in practice. Kd Moore got Tnto the scrimmage "ednesday for the first time this eek. His rib which he cracked^ last eek is s,lowly healing and Moore ill no doubt he at left end in thi Drk contest. Vern Moore, is on. the ck list and Richards played left ckle in Wednesday scrimmage. Dan,\ is on his old job at left guard and art plaved center in the scrirnmng-e. ui. is apparently in condition to play rig-ht guard. Pillard, the right tackle s not been at practice this week and until Thursday morning-. Coach jese had been unable to locate him, cGlasson a freshman played right ckle on Wednesday. Lamb" Neall. ·ft and Stoll remain about on a par r. the right end position, Lamb fill- S the wing position at the last prac- ·e. The team not only shows a decided jakness due to the absence of first ring players, but lacks the usual pep d snap which has marked it hereto- rc. Coach Reese expects to give the uad a hard work out on Thursday the weather permits and a rest on iday with nothing more than a few jnal drills.

(By "CY" SHERMAN.) RAWLIXS. AVjo., Oct. 15.--(Oil board the Cornhusker.s' sceolal de luxe).--Football is a fall sport in .sensible climates, but in Wyoming the game of the pigskin must take rank with ice cutting:, snow-shoveling- and other winter pastimes. A f t e r encountering- a near freeze at Julesbuig where they sprinted througrh theii morning- practice, the Cornhiiskcrs. on their way to Portland to collide w i t h the Orcg-an Ag-gies, bumped i n t o n brisk blizzard the moment their U n i o n Pacific special train croshfd over from Nebiabka on the bleak sand stretches of Wyoming-. The snow came p e l t i n g down all afternoon and when tho Corn. husker playeis, mii.sirin.ns ana roofers disembarked a t La ramie at ." p. in., a three-inch snow blanket covered the ground. The abbreviated track .suits \vith which the Huskers shocked the citizens of Julcsbnrg-, again were in evidence in Laramie, where a novel spectacle was i r e s e n l e d O f two full teams of Nebraska, all bare-leggred despite the below freezing temperature, putting- on a stiff thirty m i n u t e .signal practice while plowing through the snow filled streets. Larr.mie, blase from its dance hall and gambling dive indulgences of the frontier days, decided not to be horrified at'the baie legs and instead turned out to'Qheer the travelers from the Cornhusker commonwealth. . r Head Coach Stewart was not_'satisfied with the morning drill at ".TuleK- burg and made another shift in the varsity lineup at Laramie. During one of his chalk talks in tho players' private sleeper, I h e coach gave warning that unless closer attention is given lo the study of every play, the first trt.m lineup next Saturday at Portland will present the faces of several second team performers. Friends of Dr. Stewart, at Portland, are wtrmsr him facetious messages urging the Xebraskans not to abandon the ( r i p to Portland merely because the Oregon Aggies defeated AVashington State colleg-e, 1915 Pacific coast champions, last Saturday at Pullman, Wash. The Oregon jokesters are to get their replies next Saturday afternoon on M u l t n o m a h f i e l d . Today in Rhig Annals ZS03--Terry McGovern defeated Jlm/ny Briggs in 15 rounds at Boston. Tnat was the last battle of Terrible Terry's real career, and although twice thereafter he tried to pull off a come back stunt, his Boston bount with Briggs was really the finish of the famou uo'oklynite as n headline!'. Soon after that he became ill and dropped out of sight for a couple o( years. In October of 1905 he started another campaign, but ic didn't get him anywneie in particular. Again In 1908 Tenv fought a couplo of unimportant | bouts. Jimmy Briggs showed a lot of class, defeating such good men as Kid Broad. Martin Flaherty and Tommy Peltz among many otheis. but when ho went against the topnotchcrs he wasn't nulte good enough. During his long ring career he lost to. Dave Snlllvnn. Young Corbett, Charlie Neary and Harry Lewis. Briggs fought frequently for ten years, his career covering the period from 1S9 to 390S. Mo4tl 7S B 635 ftoidattr J«20 '.t k. T.I.J.
