Coach Baskins brought his young North Platte footballers to this city to mingle with the Red and Blacks of Lincoln high. The visiting 'team carried a big: clean slate. The Red and White lads of western Nebraska had not yet tasted defeat. Other squads in the western part of the state had tried valiajitly but had . always succumbed to the warriors of . Keith . Neville's home town. The boys had -just reason to p feel their oats and the- spectator's at Saturday's content on Nebraska Field will bear wff ness "that Coach Baskins had a mighty team. · But to Coach Reese goes the honors of. the day. Never before this season had his Red and Black youngsters cut loose .with the brand of football that they displayed . yesterday. Starting ' . cautiously, slowly 'testing ' strength of .the North .Rlatte team',;, the Lincoln high opened up an' attack so dazzling, so bewildering 'and --so, powerful that the pride of western 'Nebraska bowed down in humble defeat with the overwhelming: score of 40 to 14 dangling over head.

The new Nebraska combination, by j whiph Dr. _Stewart planted Qaley arid i Coi)k at the halfbacks and Dobson and \ Otoupaiik at the two fullback posl- j tipns,, with Rhodes playing in the line, I worked out superbly. Caley's manipu- I lation of the Nebraska attack was a : brilliant exhibition of generalship and j the Huskers ran the ends, rammed the ; line and hurled forward passes with ; a clash and drive, which 'scon shat- i tered the hopes of"' Hawkeye sup- ! porters. : In the line, the Husker forwards j bested their Hawkeye- opponents by a i margin-- so decisive .as to permit no comparison. The weight was in Ne- I braska's favor and the Husker for- j wards seldom tailed- to tear {raping ! holes in the Iowa line. Both in block- j ing and in running in the interference j the Cornhuskers gave their most bril- | liant exhibition of the year. In Iowa's Favor. The breeze favored Iowa ^in' the i opening period and Lavm's long j spirals soon enabled the Hawkeyes to j gain on . every, exchange of punts and ; to work the pigskin into Nebraska ' territory. A forward pass, from Lann j to Jenkins, netted Iowa twenty-seven j yards and planted the ball on Ne- ; braska's nine-yard line. Three smashes off tackle ended in Davis carrying the | ball over the Nebraska, goal to a j touchdown. Davis kicked goal. i The Cornhuskers then contributed j three first Jowns, but the Hawkeyes j blocked a. Nebraska punt and in a sub- i sequent exchange of 'kicks came into possession 'of the ball on Nebraska's forty-yard line. Efforts to run the ends or buck- the line were blocked by the charging Cornhusker forwards, after which Davis dropped back and booted a place kick, boosting: the Iowa total to ten points. The first period ended with the Hawkeyes well in the lead and the -Iowa rooters settled back In their seats as if to enjoy a decisive victory in Iowa's windup battle of the campaign. : At Height of Power. .The Cornhusker attack was at the heighth of its power during the .second period. The Huskers were sixty yards distant from their own goal when the .whistle wa» blown for the start of the quarter, but Caley, Cook, Otoupaiik and Dobson took turns at smashing their .way. down the . rectangle. Two penalties were not' permitted to balk the Nebraska offense and the grand march 1 ended when Otoupaiik. plunged throu»n. tha .wavering Hawkeye -line and .crossed the -final chalk mark Two other -touchdowns were added to Nebraska's total ere time was called for the ,end of the first half. -R*i»ed Their Hop«». The Hawkeyca crept' up to within three points of a tie during the third Period when Von' Lackum recovered squad. Not only did his starting: of forward passes-and his terrific, line plunging make him Invaluable, but his presence on the team created a remarkable effect. Though Coach Reese did not start the game with Griffin in the lineup, he soon sent hlin in and tfre team appeared as' a new fighting machine. . Captain Harry Brian and Harold Webb also played brilliant football. 'Webb's cork screw runs through tho visiting- team was a potent .factor in j the North Platte defeat'.' Lamb at ; right, end was also a factor in the i Lincoln' scoring- machine. His ability I to receive forward passes puts him i in a very select class. | The strength of the Lincoln line i was seldom called into, use. .The Red j and Blacks took the aggressive for the most part. The two touchdowns made by the visitors were the results of fumbles and did not reflect upon the strength of the line.

"We will battle Fulton or anybody else," says Jone*i, "If they can make It worth our while." And there you have It. Jones doesn't think Dillon has much chance of meeting' Willard.

But us the Yale blue marked time to gladRome songa, eleven young men, Just as grimy und Just as determined, silently turned their Crimson backs to tho field of defeat und walked off. No one noticed them.

After playing scoreless ball for two quarters, the Cen'rnl City college eleven smashed the Cotner team's defense and defated the Bulldogs on tho latter's field 21 to 0. Cotner appeared to huve the best team In the first half. In the first quarter the Bulldogs swept down the field only to lose the ball on a fumble on Central's 10-yard line The Central collcylnns came back strong In the second half, however, and pushed one touch down across In the third quarter and two In the last.

Hto I 'm* ml MM PuMdm* X*w Football makes Its bow as ft part of the Turkey day menu o f ' Corn- husker football fans for tho first tim« In tlio last six years, following tho rcln.itn.tement of tho popular college pnstlmo to the K°°d graces of th« Missouri Valley conferencce as ft Thanksgiving day feature. · Just six years ago the bubbling over of the Joy und gloom of Missouri and Kansas rooters in Kansas City resulted In the conference putting a ban on Turkey day gumcs und It stuck until last season when tho conference heads !ic.rkeneil to the frantic appeals of the college managers to permit them to niako a "cleaning^ 1 on Turkey day. From a financial standpoint tha Tur- toy day pa-mo recognized no rival. The Huskers are particularly for- Limnte this year in having Notre Dame, recognized as one, of tho most powerful gridiron machines In the country, for a Turkey day attraction. The only thing which will prevent Roed from acquiring a large share of the state's wealth for tho Cornhuaker athletic fund next Thursday Is lack of seating: capacity. Tho reservation of scats Is the largest In advance In the history of the game and practically all of tho choice scats are gono. Athletic Manager Reed plans to build Inrge bleachers at each end of tho field and will endeavor to accommodate all who come. Reed estimates that not ICSK than 11.000 people will see the Notre Dame-Nebraska combat. From Out In the State. Word comes from Omaha that two special trains will be run from that city for tho accommodation of the football fans. A aolld block of GOO scats went to Omnha. Central City rootera planked down the money for a block of 100 scutH and will occupy a section In tho grand stnnd. Beatrice will scind fifty, Including: all of tho members of tho Beatrice high school football teams, Hastings, Grand Island, Columbua, Fremont, Fairbury, Nebraska City and Hebron will all b* represented with big delegations. Notro Dame cornea to Lincoln with one of the greatcnt elevens in her history since that school attained a dominating: position -In western football. Seven of the oleven men play- Ing- this year are veterans of the great machine, which Coach Jess Harper brought to Lincoln last yc.ir to meet a 20 to 19 defeat In ono of the most t h r i l l i n g gridiron buttles of tho west. Included In tho Hot arc Sofall and yergman, recognized as two of tha best backfleld men In tho country. In opon field running: and str.alght football Cofull has no rival. Bergman, a ten-second man, la particularly ndept with the forward pass and In sprinting through a broken field. Backmari Is Shunted. Backrnaii, the powerful fullback, whoso lino plunges sent shivers up Hunker spines moro than once last season. Is playing- fiimrd this .year, being replaced by Miller. Miller la tho kicker, who failed to make a goal following tho last Notre Dame touchdown and lost the game by one point. If ho has anything on Backman In driving- through the line, the rooter* ore certain to witness a marveloui exhibition of football next Thursday. Banjan, un exceptional end, Rydz- woakl, a burly linesman at center, and Phelan, tho little quarterback, nro tho other Notre Dame players in this year's lineup, -whose work In th« game last year Is still a vivid memory. Assistant Conch Dick Rutherford has seen tho Indiana eleven In action three times. "We have a chance against Notr« Dame," said Rutherford, who haa been counted a pretty fair Judge -'of football. "If the boys go In ther» with the right fighting spirit we will win. Notro Dame has a whale of * team. I haven't seen any such a line , In my experience. Four of the men top the scales at over 200, but Harper has not sacrificed speed and fight for weight. Our line has.shown Its worth nnd I predict a battle royal between those two sets of forwards." Stowart Not Dismayed. Dr. Stewart is another Husker who refuses to be frightened over the hopelessness of the Notre Dame game, "I spent some time during the summer with the Notre Dame boys," said the head coach, "and I found all of 'hem are looking forward to the Nebraska game with more than ordinary Interest. They figure that what hap. pened here last year was an accident and they promised to see there would be no accident again this season. Notre Damn has one of the strongest elevens in thn country and it will require Nebraska's best efforts to win." Stewart's lineup lor the Turkey day battle will depend largely on the outcome of the battle at Iowa City- today. The Cornhuaker mentor made his last switch In . the backfield when he planted Cnley and Cook at halfbacks, . with Dobson and Otounalik at fullbacks. Stewart is confident this combination will provide more speed, but whether It will seriously weaken tht Nebraska defense remains to b« demonstrated. Nebraska expects to meet a dazzling array of open plays in the Notr» Dame game. The Hoosiers have repeatedly demonstrated their ability to use tho forward pass and Kansas made the Huskers look sick by using. this play last Saturday. If baffled in the forward pass, then Notre Dame can rely upon Cofall and Bergman, two speed merchants, and Miller and .. Baekma.n, two line plungrers, to batter " their way down the field. . , " There will be a stiff jvorkout every night of the coming- week for tha " Huskers, tapering' down to · a light . ' signal drill Wednesday.
