It was all brought about by a uestion which Braden had asked: hat has the playing of football done for you as a man? It’s the intangible things that can’t be measured by physical or classroom standards, Griffith thought and: "It teaches a man to carry on when he feels like quitting, and not to blame one’s own mistakes on the other fellow.” Continuing Major Griffith said: "I went to prep school and had much speed and no brains and made many touchdowns because I outclassed my mates. Then I arrived in college with a bad case of ‘big head.' On the first play of my first appearance in college ranks I made a touchdown run. It took my colleagues and me many months to rechice the size of my head. That was a good lesson to learn early in life.

MICHIGAN STADIUM, Ann Arbor, Mich, (UP). A typical Michigan football team, capitalizing on its opponents' mistakes and making the most of its own opportunities, paraded to a 15 to 6 triumph over'Northwestern Saturday in the opening Big Ten game of the season for both teams. Bringing together the co-champions of the Big Ten for the past two years, the game attracted a crowd of 60,000 persons to Michigan’s big sunken bowl, and produced a shifting panorama of spectacular football in the warm sunlight of a perfect autumn day. Northwestern scored only one touchdown, and that on a flawlessly executed pass but made eleven first downs to the Wolverine’s four and outgained the victors from scrimmage 160 yards to 159.

Ruddys are fully protected against shooting this year, while the limit of teal is ten. If theahunter happens to shoot the daily limit of fifteen ducks, not more than ten should be teal. Shown here are the blue winged and green winged varieties. The male blue winged Is distinguished by a white crescent in front of the eye, a black cap, and a patch of brilliant blue on the wing coverts. Tjie female has the blue wings but the head is different, being blackish and buffy spotted. The throat is about white. Green on the wings, a white crescent in front of the wings, and a chesenut head distinguish the green winged teal drake. The body is mostly wavy-lined gray. The female is principally buff and dark brown, speckled on the head and neck, with 'about the same wing markings. The ruddy is one of our most amusing, albeit dumbest, ducks. Not so dumb, either, when you consider his diving ability. The adult male's head Is black On top and back, while the cheeks and chin are white. The neck and back are a sort of chestnut. In the female, the upper parts are plain grayish browm, the sides of the head are whitish with a dusky streak from the corner of the CORNHUSKERS RENEW GRID RIVALRY WITH GOPHERS THIS WEEK Huskers* Win in 1913 One of Greatest in History of School.

Oftentimes the hunter can approach a ruddy to within close range, raise his gun for what he thinks is to be a wing shot, only to see the bird dive before the trigger can be pulled.

Newman Has Big Day. On the other hand, Newman, the dark haired Detroit Hebrew, had a field day. He piloted the Michigan team flawlessly, threw one pass for a touchdown, kicked the field goal which clinched the game, and made the longest run of the day. a fifty-two yard punt return. Michigan scored on the third play before the game was a minute old. The Wolverines kicked off to Pug Rentner, who was tackled so fiercely that he dropped the ball and Captain Williamson, Michigan right end, covered it on Northwestern’s 9-yard line. Stanley Fay plunged over Northwestern’s goal in two thrusts. % Purple Threatens. Northwestern staged a courageous comeback after this heartrending break to tie the score five minutes later.

The spotlight of attention in Nebraska high school football circles swings westward this weekend to Sidney where the Scottsbluff and Sidney teams are meeting in a game which promises to go a long way toward deciding the Western conference grid title. Last year Sidney was one touchdown better than Scottsbluff. This season is Coach A1 Gembler’s second at the Bluffs and western fans are inclined to favor the Scottsbluff Bearcat to win over Sidney and then go on through to a conference championship. Sidney has held the title for two years. Lincoln To Co. Bluffs. Lincoln high will carry its hopes for a Trans-Missouri title to Council Bluffs where the Red and Black will meet Abraham Lincoln. The Lynx upset Omaha Tech in the opener this fall and certainly will be no worse than an even bet against Lincoln. Omaha Tech will attempt to pick up some lost ground in the conference race by turning back St. Joseph Central. Omaha Central continues the city series by appearing at South with the result a tossup. East Sioux City is at North and Benson travels to Logan, la. Greater Lincoln League. Creighton Prep carries its aspirations toward an Inter-State league crown to Fremont. The Mutes travel to Richardstn county to meet Coach Jug Brown’s Falls City eleven which has been hitting a fast clip this fall. C-reater Lincoln league interest will be red-hot with Bethany, 1931 champion, due for a battle at Jack son and Havelock set to have its hands full at College View. Kearney Meets Crete. Crete hopes to make it two straight in the Mid-State league by beating Kearney. The young Bearcats gave Crete quite a battle last fall. Hastings is at Fairbury. North Platte steps back into the Southwest league race by entertaining Lexington. The Platters will be heavy favorite and most interest will turn to the Holdrege game at Gothenburg where the winner is figured to give N. P. its best argument. Cambrige is at Cozad.

Tulane made it four straight over University of Georgia, 34 to 25, Saturday before 15.000 persons as both teams employed the type of play that thrills the cash customers and gives football coaches gray hair. Doti Zimmerman, Tulane’s flying half, who passed, punted and ran his mates to victory, claimed the distinction of making the longest sprint for touchdown, seventy- five yards, but this performance was only slightly more spectacular than the sixty-yard stepping of Sam Brown and Bill David for Georgia scores. BRINGS DOWN TWO CANADA HONKERS BY GREGG McBRIDE. The University of Nebraska renews football relations next Saturday with an Institution that brings back memories to old grads and quickens the pulse of the old- timers as they recall past games between the Cornhuskers r.nd the University of Minnesota. Nebraska and Minnesota in the early days were great rlva’s and the annual game was one of the season’s classics and always drew a bumper crowd, special trains and enough comment to knep the stove league ousy until the next season’s schedule polled around. Testimonial of Victory. A silent testimonial of the intense spirit aroused over past Gopher-Comhusker games is shown in a small trophy which hangs on the walls of the "N” cluo room in the University of Nebraska coliseum. This trophy Is a plaque of silver on which Is displayed under glass a bit of sod taken from old Nebraska field. The inscription reads: “Nebraska, 7; Minnesota. 0. "This soil taken from the exact spot of touchdown on Nebraska field.” The game in qu.3tton was Oct. 18, 1913 and the names inscribed on the silver trophy are G. Mastin, left end; V. Halligan. left tackle; C. Ross, left guard; R. Thompson, center; E. Abbott, right guard; R. Cameron, right tackle. G. Beck, right end; M. Towle, quarterback; Captain L. N. Purdy, right half; R. Rutherford, left half; W. Howard, fullback; E. C. Stlehm, coach; Guy E. Reed, manager. Real Football Classic. This game was one of the red- letter events in Cornhusker football history—it marked the high spot of an all-victorious season for Nebraska. A crowd of 8,000 was on hand and watched the Minnesota giants led by their great fullback Shaugh nessy batter and hammer thetr way to the Nebraska 5-yard line. With their goal-line threatened the Cornhusker line presented a stone wall and Howard soon got off a long punt to send the ball out of danger In the third quarter, Nebraska unleashed an offensive carried through to the lone Score. A double pass behind the line. Max Towle to Dick Rutherford and a forward pass to Captain -jeonard Purdy brought a good gain and Warren Howard flipped another to Vic Halligan for a first ’ow i . A line plunge br ight the ball to the 10-yard line. The Winning Play. The winning play came when Towle ran back and faked a pass to Mastin. Gordon Beck, the other end, cut diagonally across . e Minnesota line and took a short pass on the dead run. The pass — low. about a foot off the ground, but Beck hung onto the ball, shook loose one tackier and staggered into three othefs. When the pile was cleared, the ball was discovered in Beck’s possession 6 Inches over the goal line. Max Towle kicked the extra point. The crowd went into a frenzy, cheering wildly throughout the remainder of the game as the Nebraskans. aided by the recovery of three fumbles by Halligan, held off the husky Minnesotans. Only two Nebraska players have been able to score the winning touchdown against Minnesota. Johnny Bender, one of the greats in Nebraska history, made the bther in 1902 at Minneapolis. Members of that team were Shedd, Mason. Ringer, Borg, Cotton, Westover, Cortelyou, Benedict, Bell Bender. Mickel with Follmer and Englehart as substituted. The 1902 Victory. Six thousand people saw Nebraska score a few minutes be fore the game ended to win a 6-0 victory. Bender swung around end on the touchdown play to score standing up. Shedd’s run of 25 yards and Benedict’s great return of a punt for 35 yards were high spots oi that game. A glance into the Cornhusker record shows Minnesota as one of the few teams to compile an impressive margin against Nebraska over a period of years. The two institutions have met on the gridiron fourteen times, Nebraska haf won two. Minnesota captured ten victories and two resulted *n tie contests. The point scored is 192 to 51 in favor of the Gophers. Gophers Have Weight. The University of Minnesota this year has one of ie huskiest teams in American football. If you don’t think so, then just read this probable starting lineup: Left end—Papas, 175. Left tackle—Gay, 198. Left guard—Brun, 185. Center—Oen, 170. Right guard—Koski, 195. Right tackle—Wells. 215 Right end— Robinson. 190. Quarterback—Haas. 165. Left half—Lund, 175. Right half—Swartz, 180. Fullback—Manders, 210. . ...

STANFORD’S ATTACK BEATS SANTA CIABA Indians Launch Smooth Running Offense to Win by 14 to 0 Count. PALO ALTO, Cal. (UP). A amooth running attack carried Stanford to a 14 to 0 victory over the bewildered Santa Clara team before a crowd of 30,000 here Saturday afternoon. Pop Warner’s hard hitting line made it unnecessary for the Card inals to resort to their deceptive multiple spinner plays. Santa Clara, with a highly touted backfield, that defeated California 13 to 0 last Saturday, fumbled repeatedly and was unable to get its "free wheeling“ attack under way against the Cardinal forward w*all. Stanford scored on the fourth play of the game when Bates recovered a blocked Santa Clara punt on the Santa Clara 3-yard line. Hillman went over for the touchdown. The Indians scored again In the fourth quarter when Lambert carried the ball four yards for a touchdown after having worked the ball into scoring position from midfield. OVER HASKELL INDIAN Rambler» Turn Game Into a Track Meet to Lick Redskin» 73-0, BY PAUL MICKELSON. SOUTH BEND, Ind. t.4\ Haskell's Indians ran the Notre Dama football gauntlet Saturday and got their worst licking since they invaded Nebraska way back in 1918. Tossing thirty-seven players Into the fray for the Initial workout of the season, the Ramblers clubbed the Indians into submission by the one-sided margin of 73 to 0, It was the worst Indian massacre since the Braves wera tomahawked by the Cornhusker* fourteen years ago. 101 to 0. It wasn't a football game, it wa« a track meet with big George Me- Hnkovich and Steve Banas winning three foot racea against th# hopelessly outclassed Braves to score six of the eleven Rambler touchdowns between them. Th# Braves simply didn’t have a chanoa against their heavier and more experienced opponents. Only onca did they threaten. In the second period when they took advantaga of a fumble by Chuck Jaakwhich. recovered the hall on Notre Dame’« 40-yard line and advanced it fourteen yards farther before being »topped. Coach Hunk Anderson couldn't stop the massacre either. Ha started his second team and wound up with his fourth string backfield only to watch the aenra mount by twenty-six points alona in the final period. Notre Dama scored twenty-three first downs to Haskell’s three and rolled up 623 yards to Haskell's 50 from the line of scrimmage. Banas, junior fullback, started the rout on the first play from scrimmage by dashing fifty-four yards to the 9-yard line and then over for the score. A few minutes later, he snatched a twenty yard pass from Mike Koken and dashed ten yards for the goal. Melinkovich picked up from that point as a fullback regular, scoring in two plays from five yards and eluding the Indians for a 38 yard touchdown run. After that touchdowns literally rained on th* braves. BOWLING BOOSTER LEAGUE. Hurried along, no doubt, by snow in the west end of the state, several flocks of geese were sighted over Lincoln Friday and Saturday. On Friday afternoon George Ainsworth, stock farmer and naturalist living northeast of the city, bagged these two Canada honkers out of a flock of twelve. The larger of the two weighed ten pounds, and had a wing spread of fifty-six inches. The other weighed nine pounds. Ainsworth said exam ination of the bird’s stomachs show’ed they had not had eaten for some time. The hunter estimated they had flow’n between 200 and 300 miles without stopping for food. E.
