The first of said races was scheduled to start at 2:30 r o'clock. Actually the first race of a bob-i tailed program was started at 4:35 o'clock, f During the two hours and five minutes 1 which elapsed, a crowd of 00 persons first ' Joshed Air. Scneder and his brother, then the crowd demanded its money back at fifty cents per. Meanwhile the brother promoters wore that worried look and wondered "row it would feel to be mobbed. The trouble was that Promoter Scneder had failed to secure the automobiles necessary to stage an automobile meet. For some time the assemblage was - lialf heartedly amused by the sight of .'i.!idv MnntP'ftim.rv tr his little ETefin J aige machine and Phil Billard in his vet-i tran stripped Speedwell "warming up" In preparation for alleged races, men Aioni-t'omery's car was put out of commission Jor racing as a curve was rounded.

Earl Sparling appeared driving his American car and some races looked possible. AND THOtHLK FOLLOWS TKOL'DLR. Hut the trouble was not over. Led by "Billard the drivers demanded to see the color .of the prize money offered tv Scneder. A messenger was sent to 3t?x Kreipe, v ho was selling tickets at the state fair ground entrance. Kreipe was gone. It was 4:30 o'clock when he was found attending to some work at the race track barns. With the money in sight, four of the seven auto races advertised were carried out, with Phil Billard an easy winner of each event. In addition there was one motorcycle race. Darkness prevented the oth ?r races. "I am going to quit promoting for the Topeka public; those auto fellowB aren't like the motorcycle men to deal with," said Scneder after the painful nt'ternoon. had passed. The automobile drivers complained that Scneder had advertised them as entries in yesterday's meet without securing their permission.

I TITLE Plunging Cornhuskers, With Sensational Attack of Bucks and Passes, Defeat Kansans by a 35 to 0 Score. K. U. MAKES FIRST 001 ONCE Nebraska Backfield Was Able to Score at Will, and Negotiated Five Touchdowns, ' Kicking Every Goal. Special to The Capital. Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 14. Unable to stand up against the fierce onslaught of the Nebraska backfield, the Kansas university football team lost in the annual clash here this afternoon by a score of 35 to 0. The Missouri valley championship went to the Cornhuskers with the victory, as well as the honor of having the best football team experts have seen in the valley for manv years. Although the score would indicate that the battle was one-sided, the determined fighting spirit of the Jayhawkers kept tne 8,-000 spectators interested from start to finish. The Kansas team fought against too big odds, that was all. They were unable to cope with the splendid work of the Nebraska eleven, and the fifth straight defeat was registered against them by the Corn-huekers. MAKE FIRST DOWX ONCE. Only once in the game was Kansas able to make first down without the aid of penalties, while almost at any time Chamberlain, Rutheriord or Halligan were good for any distance up to twenty yards. Had Nebraska not suffered 150 yards in penalties their chances for scores would have been doubled. Every score of the game came from touchdowns. Two were made in the first half and three in the fourth period. It was in the last quarter that Chamberlain . made the spectacular play of the game, when he ran sixty yards through the Kansas team for the final score of the game. This play easily made Chamberlain the individual star of the game, although Rutherford and Captain Halligan pushed him hard for the honors. Coolidge, at end, and James, in the line, showed well for the Jayhawkers. These two players were the mainstay of the Kansas defense. Since the team was on the defensive most of the time the backfield men had little chance to star. Gray made one 9-yard run, the longest of the game for Kansas. Russell's successful pass to Strothers netted the Jayhawkers twelve yards, and their only earned first down without contest. The Jayhawkers were clearly outplayed, Nebraska's rushes being fiercer and their forward passing more ac curate. In all departments or ttie game Strothers held his own with Howard in punting, but the returns of Quarterback Potter gave all the advantage to his team. For an hour before the game a drizzling rain fell, but just before the kick-off the downpour ceased. FIRST QUARTER. Kansas won the toss and kicked off to Dovle. Chamberlain tried K. U.'s left end to no avail. Howard punted '-o yards to Wood who returned 23 yards to micifield. The Jayhawker backs made 7 yards and Strothers tried a place kick from the 35-yard line. The kick was blocked. K. U. recovering. The Jayhawkers' new plays did not work well. Strothers tried another place kick from the 25-yard line after Wood had made a successful pass to Strothers but the ball wen I wild. After an interchange of punts Nebraska with Rutherford. Chamberlain and Delameter making a slashing attack began a steady march toward the Kansas goal. Chamberlain capped the feat by a brilliant 40-yard run to K. U.'s l-ard line. Here the teams staged a fierce fight for ground. The Jayhawker forwards charged hard and threw Rutherford for a loss. On the next play Rutherford went over for the first touchdown. Halligan kicked goal. Score: K. U. 0; Nebraska 7. After the kick off play the quarter ended with ball In Nebraska's posses:on on K. U.'s 45-yard line. PLAY IX SECOND QUARTER. At the beginning of the second quarter the Cornhuskers suffered 3o yards in penalties lor holding. This temporary advantage was lost to Kansas wnen Potter and Rutherford negotiated two forward passes for 30 yards. The Kansas line held and another 15- yard penalty stopped the Nebraska on-1 rush and Halligan was unsuccessful in a piace kick from the 15-yard line. Wood returned a kick to K- U.'s 20-yard line. He was injured but was revived and stayed in the battle. A penalty of 13 yards on K. U. for holding gave the Nebraska eleven an advantage. A mighty rush by Chamberlain, Delameter and Rutherford put the ball on K- U.'s 10-yard line and Chamberlain skirted K. u. s right end tor a toucnaown. Halligan kicked goal. Score: Kansas 0; 13. S k L 14 The half ended shortly after the kick off play. The Cornhuskers clearly outclassed Kansas in every department in the first half. PLAY IX THIRD QUARTER. Russell went to quarter in place of Wood, who received the brunt of Nebraska attack on returning punts. The Cornhuskers made no changes. Halligan kicked off to Cooledge who returned to the 20-yard line. Strothers punted out of danger only to have ball brought back bv two SO-yard penalties. Groft recovered Rutherford's fumble and Gray ripped off 9 yards to midfield. The ball was kept in Nebraska territory a greater part of the time but the Jayhawker backs could do no consistent gaining. Ruther- ford's Sv-vard run put the ball on Kansas' 20-yard line where the third quarter enej Halligan opened the fourth quarter by failing on a place kick. Strothers punted rv.irmlrf hut th. ornshinsr attarlr nf tc.F Nebraska lacks seemed too much for Kansas. Rutherford forward passed to Howard to K. U.'s 10-yard line where in two tries Rutherford carried the ball over. Halligan kicked goal. Score: K. U. 0; Nebraska 21. PLAY IX LAST QUARTER. After the kick off Kansas gained an advantage when Housenolder who replaced Strvker at full back, intercepted Rutherford's pass. Gray and Reber made & yards and Nebraska suffered 15 yards in off side plays. Strothers failed at a place kick from the S-yard line. This appeared to be the Jayhawkers' last chance and thev -fought doggedly but to no avail. In 3 plays the Cornhuskers carried the ball 50 vards to a touchdown. Potter forward passed 23 yards to Chamberlain. Rutherford made" 10 and Chamberlain swept the Kansas right end for the touchdown play. Halligan made goal. Score: K. L. 0, Nebraska 2S.

Fifty to 3 in favor of Creighton was the score of today's game between Baker university at Baldwin, Kan., and Creisrhton university, of Omaha. Lack of football generalship on the part of the Kansans and the fact that they had a one-man team wore the main troubles of the- visitors. Grove, left halfback for Baker, .was particularly good and gained practically all the ground credited to his team. His work was so brilliant that the Creighton players even cheered him repeatedly. Towards the end of the game Creighton withdrew nearly all thfir first team men and sent in substitutes. The line-up: Creighton. Position. Baker. Brennan, (C).

SICK ONLY 2 DAYS LORD ROBERTS DIES NEAR BRITISH LINE (Continued from Pas 1. Column 7.) greatest military geniuses of the pat. I hold him the ablest of today's soldiers." For more than half a century England had occasion to take pride in the career o Roberts, the soldier. As his career ripened she came to hold him In the same affection as Wellington. Clive and Kitchener. In nine of hsr. wars he was in the thick of the fighting and many times wounded. SERVES IN INDIA FORTY YEARS. As he fought he rose In rank from a supernumerary subaltern In the horse artillery to field r.arshal and commander-in-chief of all the British armies. As further rewards he was made a peer of the realm and the recipient of distinguished orders, of which the chief was the Order of the Garter, the most ane'ent and highly prized of all the British orders. Thl crown honor came to him in 1P01, after his notable services in leading the British cause to victory In South Africa. Lord Roberts' military education be gan early in life. The age of 13 saw him back in India serving under his father, a distinguished general of the Victorian period. For more than forty years he served in India. HE KOI GUT IN NINE WARS. Beginning with the Indian mutiny the record of Lis services is studded with brilliant exploits and gallant deeds. The Victoria cross came to him early in his career after he had rescued a comrade from what appeared certain death In the campaign against the In dian mutineers and had recovered a standard captured by the enemy. Queen Victoria herself pinned the highly-prized token upon the soldier's tur.le. The mutiny medal for bravery he won fighting the Sepoys at lelhl and helping to diive them from their siege of Lucknow. The Indian frontier and the Abyssinian medals came to him from his fighting throughout the Umbeyla, Abyssinia and Luslia campaign. When the Afghan war, in which Lord Roberts was to win lasting fame, broke out, he had risen to the rank of major general. As such In the Afghan war and in the following campaigns against the tribesmen, the brilliancy of the Lrltish general's strategy commanded the attention of the world's great soldiers. The two years' war came to a culmination with "Bob's" famous march through a tangled wilderness and his dashing assault of Kandahar, resulting in the dispersal of the ameer's army. TK 1 1 SI PI I A NT RETURN HOME. Eugland's new military hero, invalided horn;, was given a remarkable reception, starting with his debarkation at Dover. Hi' was summoned to Windsor castle by Queen Victoria, who raised him to a baronetcy, he received the thanks of parliament, was presented with the freedom of many cities and was granted degrees by Oxford and Dublin .universities. A special medal was struck to commemorate his famous march to Kandahar. Later he resumed his service in the Orient, and in 1VS5 became commander in-chief of the British army in India, a post which he held for eight years. The rank and title of field marshal came to him in 1K'.5. In the meantime, in 1892, he had been raised to the peerage as Baron Roberts of Kandahar and Waterford. SON FALLS AT Tl'GELA. Lord Roberts had reached the age of fis years when the second great episode In his career began. Called to sustain I ritlsh sovereignty in South Africa, where one British disaster had followed another with rapidity In the fighting against the Boers, Lord Roberts sailed for the scene of war with a sad heart, for his only son had fallen at the Tugela. But his whirlwind campaign brought the Boer war to an end victorious to British arms. In spired by his personality, the British ; relief armies pressed back the I-oer line and relieved the garrisons of K!m-berly and LaJysmith. Not lon afterward Lord Roberts fought his way into Pretoria and there received the surrender of General CronJ. This campaign ended Lord Roberts' I active service in war. He receive-! for jthe third time tho thinks of both i houses of parliament and was created ; nn earl of the realm, with the title of j Karl of Kandahar, Pretoria and Water ! ford, two of his most brilliant battles being thus rt corded.

I've often noticed, in the cities, that we gorge the needy of the tenements at Christmas or New Year and forget them in February. We send a basket with a chicken and a loaf and a spring of celery for Thanksgiving, or some other holiday, and we strut away complacently flushed with our generosity. We have shared our abundance with thosn that were !n distress. And a lot oi us never think of the poor again through the year. V- GET GOODS ACROSS WATER. "That won't be the way Kansas will do with the Belgians. We must make a raid right rw and fret the goods across the water aa fast as possible. One ship load, remember, will feed the hungry Belgians Just four meals. And when we say 'ship' we don't mea'n t ne of the Kansas -City boat line siie. We mean the biggest ship that John IX Rockefeller could hire for JJ7S.000 some ship, let me suggest. It will take a lot of these hg ships to feed those people and it will take a lot of carloads of wheat to fill the ships. Kansas can supply It. The towns and the eitiee and the farms can supply money enough without injuring anyone seriously, and every man can give a little. The dl-aster at Galveston, the b:-r flre and earthquake at San Francisco were small accidents compared to the mighty tragedy now being lived out in Belgium, under the skies, alontr th roadways, in roofless, ruined homes. I know Kansas will think of these things. We must keep right on helping through the winter. A doxen states are planning to do this. The eastern newspaper accounts show that no such agitation In the interest of human beings ever has swept over America." BIG TOWNS AND OTIES INTERESTED. All the big towns and the cities In the utate were represented In Friday night's meeting in the Commercial club rooms by delegate or letter or telegram. The reports read then and those which came yesterday nhowed that many counties have already gotten together their first contributions. Mostly these were to be ground into flour or flour in barrels or nicks. Clothing, of course, would be welcome In Belgium as well as wheat. Th overcoat or suit you put aside last spring, after a winters use. might be a treasure In some places where clothing Is scarce. But food Is the first consideration and It should not be exclusively flour. Money will be needed to buy other Items so necessary for human beings tea ar.d coffee and meat, perhaps.
