Nebraska in their interactional football meeting here iu the Seattle bowl today. A thnuiir of ;;0,lH)U saw the Huskies arise to their greatest heighth of the season and halt a L'orulnisker rush on the five-yard line in tie final quarter- A 15-yard forward pass from Louis Tesreau to Captain George Gut-tormseu in the final seconds of the initial period put Washington off in front, and Shaw kicked the goal for the extra point. Nebraska came back with a tremendous drive in the second period end Howell shot thru left guard fur the touchdown, but Stephens missed the try for goal. The Huskies' other three points came late In the tame period when Cook kicked a goal from placement from the 3o-yard line Just before the gun sounded the end of 1 the half. Nebraska was outplayed In the 1 third quarter but the final quarter was all Cornhusker, Bearge's men driving the length of the field and carrying the ball to the 5-yard line when the field Judge's gun popped, sounding the end of the hostilities. An injury to Captain Lonnl Stiner undoubtedly crippled Nebraska considerably, the former Lombard star being forced out of the lineup in the opening half. The summary: Washington. Position. Nebraska.

Taking advantage of the only scoring opportunty offered, Captain Billy Bishop, playing his last game for Millikln, smashed over n the second quarter to defeat Illinois college ( to 0 here today. The game was played In a sea of mud. A blocked punt that gave the locals the ball on the 25-yard line and a concentrated attack on the line provided the counter. In the fourth quarter Illinois opened a strong stuck that gave them first down on the Milllkin 4-yard line, but they were stopped a foot from the goal line and Bishop kicked out of danger.

Frenrhy H:i.isslpr's brilliant Pekin high foot- ball tram closed their season with a nuize 01 s i j here today when they run over the s t r 0 n b Danville team, 34 to 0, In a g;une that brings with It the championship of the Big Twelve conference for Haussler mid his team. Despite the fact that all season Pekin has depended largely on her aerial attack for advancing the ball, today the CAPt. ROLLINS. lio from the Celestial City uncovered a smashing running attack that upsc: Danville's carefully-worked out defense for aerials. Mc-Clarence, Koliins, Bruder, and Kon-isck smashed the line, and ran the ends almost at will, and only in rare instances did the Pekin uuartei back call tor a pass, although two ol 1'ekin's touchdowns came from passes over the goal line. Pekin got the edge on John Thomas' team In the very first of the game. Danville received the klck-otf, but was forced to kick fiack to Pekin. and on the second play Henry Uruder, versatile Pekin fullback, circled right end, cut back, and dashed for Danville's goal-line 70 yards away. At times it seemed almost certain that he would either be cut down or forced out of bounds, but he kept his feet and finished his dash by carrying the ball over with no one near him. With a seven to nothing lead on the Danverltes, the Pekin team was unstoppable, and they tore into the line or around ends savagely for long gams. Bruder's long dash was the only counter In the first period, but in the seconu the Danville defense be- gan to crumble, and two touchdowns were pushed over before the time- keepers gun announced the close ot the first half. Again in the third period, Haus-sler's team could not be stopped, and one more the Danville goal line was violated by the flying feet of the Peklnites. The last score came in the final period when McClarence ran around left end for a short gain and a touchdown. Captain Rollins, playing his last game in a Pekin high uniform, kicked four out of five goals on the muddy field, and ran his team ilk a college veteran, besides doing a good deal of the passing whenever passes were resorted to. A special train of five coaches was mad up to transport over S00 rabid Pekin rooters to the conflict. The Pekin high school band of 25 pieces was on hand to furnish pep for the occasion. This last great victory over Danville concludes what is probably the greatest season ever enjoyed by Pekin high school, at least in a number of years. Haussler has won eight games and lost none this season, and in all that time his team has had only two points scored against him, the result of a safety scored against Pekin on a muddy field in the Manual game. It Is doubtful whether or not Haussler can duplicate this feat next year, because all of the eleven men who finished the game for Pekin today will be lost through graduation from next year's team.

Pontlae hlah school's fighting Indians went on the war-path hare this afternoon and scalped Coach Fits Crrene'a Chenoa high outfit, 12 to 0, and by so doing virtually clinched their hold on the II J In 1 conference championship. Chenoa fought desperately against their old rivals from the north, but cracked In the second quarter enough to allow the visitors to push over two touchdowns which Chenoa was unHble to match. The first Pontiac score came early In the second quarter when St. John caught a forward pass In the scoring zone. A few minutes later the hall was carried down again, and this time Rlswold plunged across for the second and last touch-down of the game. Chenoa came back In the second half and played on even terms with the Invaders, hut the damage had already been done, and the score remained In favor of Pontiac In spile of the desperate attempts of the Red-hirds. headed by their full-hack, Sullivan, to change the cnmnlexlnn j of the strugele. iwu n I onian originest luminaries played their last game for the Clold and Blue today. Itlswald, who hss been one of the maln-stavs of the Indian attack all season, and Mc-Conahs, reliable end and field general, will both be lost to the Seaton-Ites next year.

Colgate University Rose to the Occasion to Tie Brown, 10-10 Providence, R. I., Nov. 25. OP) A rugged Colgate eleven, long a thorn In tho side of Brown's championship aspirations in the many year's ot traditional rivalry today in a thrilling 10-10 tie again smashed the Bear's hopes nf an undisputed claim to eastern gridiron supremacy. The eleven men who h"d driven Brown to top ranking with nine straight victories this season, fought desperately for victory snd unblemished record. But the fire that Tarried the team to smashing conquests over Harvnrd. Vale and Dartmouth, died In the face of Colgate's fierce defense, the Maroons' complete subjection of the vaunted Brown forward passing gnme, and Mlshel's failure to control his usually reliable toe when three field goal chances offered an opportunity to break the deadlock in the final period. Not the least of Brown's troubles was the brilliant kicking of Dumont, huaky Colgate guard, who time after time trotted Into the backfleld to hoist twisting spirals (0 yards down the field. Matching Dumont's accomplishments, Williamson, the center, twice fell back to drop-kick Maroon points, once with a field goal from the 33-yard line.

N. U. on Wet Field, 12 to 0 Charleston, III., Nov. 25. (Speeisl.) A wet field, combined with a strong Charleston Normal eleven, was too much for coacn lion Karnes' dashing I.S.N.U. gridders, and went down to a 12-0 defeat here today. Normal tried desperately to keep their recent string of victories unbroken, but were unable to stop the heavy Charleston team. C h a r 1 e aton's two halfbacks, DICK TATE. Cramer and Gilbert, surprised the Normalltes by rippinsr thru their supposedly strong line ami around ends for substantial gains. Normal played desperately on defense, but could not prevent these sterling backs from pushing over two touchdowns, which were enough to give them the win. Charleston missed both goals. Dick Tate, colored halfback for Normal, was probably Normal's best bet In the backtleld, but the Charleston line usually smothered his attempts to carry the ball before they could gain sufficient headway. Tate got loose for a couple of substantial gains, however, but was unable to push the ball down over the Charleston goal line. The lineup for the game follow; Charleston. Cooper . . U.

I.yiK-h Pinkataft Conference Athletic Directors Gather in Rules Session Today Chicago, Nov. 25. VP) All the excitement in Chicago tomorrow will not concern the arrival of the cadets and the middies to root for their teams in the big game of the gridiron season. The athletic directors of the Big Ten and the football coaches will meet in a two-day session to arrange their lli-7 schedule, and Indications were tonight that a vigorous tight would develop over new reforms expected to be presented. The directors will consider a proposal that each university develop two teams, one to play at home and the other to play on the campus of the opposing school on the same day. Under such an arrangement, for example, a Michigan-Minnesota game would be played at Ann Arbor and at Minneapolis on the same day. Thin proposal has the endorsement of President Clarence Cook, of the Lnivcrsity of Michigan, who believes a change in the present system in Imperative. There Is a persistent and growing demand for some sort of compulsory action to make various members of the Big Ten meet each other in foot-hall. The rotating schedule proposed two years ago and voted down will come up agiin tomorrow. The fa-heme seems to have gained more supporters than when the subject llrst was bruached. but Chicago, Illinois and Northwestern are reported opposed to It. Minnesota Is strongly In favor of a compulsory method to mnke other teams play the Gophers, who claim they have been dodged by several conference victors. Fewer intersectlonal games probably will be arranged for 1927 because of the demand for more games within the conference. However, Princeton has ai ranged a game with Ohio State, to be played at Princeton on October 12.. Michigan has a home and home contract with the Navy, and Chicago has a two-year arrangement with Pennsylvania, providing for the Quakers to come west next season. Northwestern, which divided honors with Michigan this year, may arrange a game with an eastern opponent, altho the Purple's attitude soems to be thsi a good conference schedule Is more important than a Intersectlonal game. There Is a strong likelihood that Michigan and Northwestern will meet each other next year, the ctmtest replacing the Notre Dame game for Northwestern. Ohio State and Wisconsin apparently hav reached a stage wherebv they will play each other again ami If this Is agreed upon Wisconsin may be forced to drop Iowa for u season. Reports persist that Northwestern and Chicago may break off football but Coach Btaa of the Maroons remains silent upon this rumor. It also Is reported that Illinois may arrange a game with Cornell next season. While the football coaches and directors are arranging the scheduhi the faculty representatives ot tho conference will meet to consider expanding the Big Ten to the Hi:-, Twelve bv admitting Notre Damn and possibly Nebraska or Michigan State. H Is considered certain, however, that the conference will no. be enlarged as It already Is regarded at too unwieldy. Coach Knu. Rockne of Notre Dame Is silent upo the poBSlbllitv ot Notre Dame's entrance Into the Big Ten. Rockm however, will ittend tomorrow's session to schedule games for 1927, and that, perhaps, will be as far as his Interest In the proceedings will extend.

When I Was in on By an By an Ex-Midshipman of Bloomlngton The Army By Leroy Stanger. In my experience as a cadet at the United States military academy at West Point, i was the loitunute eyo witness of two Aimy-Na.v) faints, in the years l'J-1 and 1122 . Jhu story of the cadet culpa ill both of these instances waa much the same, in the weeks of preparation fur tha big game, the llirdl of tho day when tile game was to be played, the contest itself, the celebration, or ulnerwlse, alter ward, and tile final return "home" to the Point. The first year, the game was played at the Polo Grounds in New l'oik, and the army was deloated, 7-0. The second year, the game took place at Jj'ranklln field, Philadelphia, when the Army waa victorious, 17 to 14. All during the year of football at the Point, mo ispirit is gradually being built up tor Uie Army-Navy game. Tula game is "the'' big game ot thu year, and altho such schools as Vale and Notre Dame were on the Army schedule, these battles were not as important to the rank and tile of the cadet corps as was the last game of the season. The spirit of the cadets bursts forth Into all its final gush ot enthusiasm only during the final week before the Navy game, or one might say during the two final weeks, liven if the school spirit had ben dormant curing the earlier season, there is an irresistible rush of fighting pep as the time of the Navy game approaches. Each evening after the supper hour, meetings of the entire corps were held in the yards or tho barracks. Here cheer leaders took charge of tne ceremonies, and football coaches one after another made fiery speeches to stir the cadets into the never-say-Uie condition. Then comes the day of the big game of the year. The cadets on tnut day need no bugle call to arouse them from their beds. They are all up and moving, ready for the Bpecial call to entrain for the scene of the battle. Special trains are backed in on side tracks of the New Kork Central railroad, and at the appointed hour the whole population ot West Point military reservation is on the move to the cars. The usual military discipline is observed during the march to the trains. Once aboard, the cadets ure much the same as ordinary passengers on a similar trip. The arrival at the slution in New Vork or Philadelphia is the occasion of a great throng of spectators, who crowd about the cadets und watch the formation of the line of marcle of the well trained corps. Ihe inarcii is direct from the station to the grounds, as the West Pointers arrive only early enough to reach the gridiron in ample time for the game. Inside the grounds, the cadet corps puts on a few militaiy evolutions, headed by the baud and the tamous army mule, all duly decorated tor tho occasion. The garnering crowds in the grandstands cheer the appearance of the cadet corps, noted as one of the finest military organizations in the world. After the parade, the cadets all take places in one body lu a certain section of the stanus, and awult the arrival of the regiment ot midshipmen, their friendly enemies for the day. After the midshipmen reach the grounds and put on tneir own parade, headed by their band and navy goat, they, too, ille off to their section on the opposite side of the field. After all are seated, there are rival salvos of cheers front the opposing sides, in which the crowds join as their preferences lead them. The cadets are all on tiptoe for the contest- Kach cadet feels as if his heart would be broken by a defeat, and he would be raised to high enthusiasm by victory. H1b spirit is contagious, and it is imparted to the team in mass. This makes the contest one of the grimmest in the history of football. The fighting spirit of the rival service student bodies is maintained from the tlrat kick off to tha last whistle. After the game In 1K21, in which theVNavy won, the West Pointers remained in their seats, according to cuHtom, until the midshipmen had gathered on the field and given their yells and songs. The throwing of their caps over the goal posts in sign ot victory is one of the interesting traditions of Army-Navy games. The midshipmen formed in line and marched out, after which the cadets formed their .own lines and retired from the scene of battle. In 11)22, the order was reversed, the Army corps getting upon the lieM flint In signal of their 17-14 victory over Navy, and the cadets were the ones to snake dance and do the other stunts of victors, while the midshipmen remained in respect- "TEACH YOUR DOLLARS TO HAVE MORE SENSE" MEN!

This morning there will arrive in Chicago a mule. A plain, onr'y Army mule from the artillary. He comes by special train from his home at West Point on the Hudson, and will be escorted by a corps of grey coated, leather lunged, cadets from the United States Military Academy. He will wear the black and grey and gold ot the Army and is supposed to oe very ferocious. But, at tho same time, will arrive in the capital ot Chicagoland, a goat. He is old and gnarly and will also come by special train from "crab-town" on Chesapeak bay, wearing the blue and gold, colors of the United States Navy. Rumor has it that the goat will dine on mule meat in boldier's Held tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock, cheered on by the regiment of midshipmen from Annapolis, tor at this hour the football teams of the Army and Navy meet for the first time west of the Allegheny mountains. The Army-Navy game represents the high-water murk of the year to the two service school!! of the Army and Navy, lor weeks bedlam has been loosed at each meal time in the Naval Academy mess hall. It is bard on furniture bat evident ot spirit of this branch ot the service hacking it's team for a victory on Saturday. This spirit is symbolized in the form of Tecumseh, once proud Indian figure head on un 1812 mini-o-war, and now mounted in the yard of the Naval Academy. It is god of 2.5, passing grade in academic work, and sooth-sayer of Army-Navy games. Like heathen; the midshipmen have regularly tossed pennies to Tecumseh that he will decree a Navy victory in the annual classic. Early yesterday morning, four special trains, backed into the Naval Academy grounds to carry the regiment to Chicago. They were gaily bedecked with regulation Navy signal flags. As in former years, they were probably routed over two different roads and raced all the way to Chicago. On the trains, telegrams from the tleet are read, wishing god-speed and demanding the mule hide. Telegrams from Penang, Hongkong, Guantanamo, and Pearl Harbor. Radios on every ship in the Navy will be tuned to Chicago stations on Saturday. When the games were played in New Vork, special ferry boats, blowing sirens, wildly, transported the leciment from a New Jersey terminal to 15Bth street. Here a march was made to the Polo Grounda. The midshipmen entered first, paraded and then took one side of the stands. The 'Kaydetg" followed, swung into company fronts marched down the football Meld with every left foot hitting the five yard lines at the same time, justifying their reputation as . the best drilled corps in the world. A colorful spectacle it represented, the first year after the war, when athletic relations between the two schools were resumed. A 21 gun salute was fired in honor of the late Woodrow Wilson and the King of Belgium who attended. The war timo president sat in an Army box during tha first halt and in a Navy box ful attendance watching the maneuvers. At the time of the game in New York, the cadets were given leave until midnight, and they remained in the b:g city to celebrate according to their own desires. In Philadelphia, the corps was required to entrain for home soon alter the game, thus cutting short any possible celebration. The Sunday following the big game, the entire corps ut West Point turns out top the reception to the team returning that day. Whether in victory or defeat, the players are given a rousing welcome. The cadets are loyal to their team in any circumstances. After the Sunday, the heights of enthusiasm which had been worked up for the big duy of the year, begins to return t normal, and the grind of the military academy begins all over again. The budding army officers then have nothing to look forward to until the date of another Army-Navy game. The person who has never seen an Army-Navy game, cannot say that they have witnessed all there is In football enthusiasm. For the spirit there shown by the rival corps of military service men la such as no other college gridiron contest can match. The coming Army-Navy game in Chicago, whether or not It proves to be an outstanding athletic contest, will give the middle west a new taste of enthusiasm and a beneficial Insight into the life and personnel of the military and naval academies of the United States. and Huskies Win 10-6 Bradley Triumphs in 24th Straight Football Victory Peoria 111..

What hits been cheering to this time will probably sould like the whisperings ot the death chamber on Saturday, when nearly one hundred thousand people, the largest crowd that ever saw a football game, will watch the serv ice schools settle their annual uu- ference. It has bee customary for the men at these two schools to bet their caps on the game. The winning side sweeps down out of it's side of the stadium, sings a dirge before the loser as the caps are loused down to them. Following a Navy victory on the Polo grounns, the middies swept across the field, gathering up a moun tain howitzer, used by the cadeta to fire blanks. They piled the small cannon on top of a fifth Avenue bus and proceeded to the Navy head quarters, the Commodore Hotel. Here it was with difficulty that the management kept them from firing it in the ball room to celebrate. Grey haired officers of the line lost their dignity that night during the festivities. One captain, one lieutenant commander, and one middy locked arms on the stage of a musi cal revue while the leading lady led yells. Al Jolson departed from his lines In "Slnbad," and, assisted by half a dozen Junior officers, had the audience sing Navy songs. New York City has been captured by the Army and Navy before, but on the days of Army-Navy gamea It opens its heart soul and cellars. From all indications, Chicago is planning a celebration that will long be remembered by those lucky enough to be there. And if the seismograph at Washington trembles and vibrates, It is because some three thousand cadets and mir'-hlpmen are showing their appreciation. No. B363 Tan Ox ford, leather aolee.

Their greatest asset is to place p. When they have mastered placing the ball they are of great value. For example, when a team punts from near midfleld it Is far better fur the kicker to drop the ball out-of-bounds around the opponent's five-yard lino than to roll It over the opponent' goal-line. In the first case the oppu-nenta put It In play on their 5-jani line. In the second It's a touchhacv and they put it in play on their 20-yard line. Hence a punter who can kick the ball from midfleld out-of-bounds on the opponents' 5-yard line gains 15 yards for his team. Punter should aim for the Intersection of tii. 5-yitrd line and goal-line on thii play. When kicking from near one's g.nil-llne the punter should bear in min.1 the need of placing the ball near a side-line the one his team Is nearest when It lines "p. If they kick straight up the middle of the field i fair catch may give the opponents a free try for field goal. No use taking such a chance. Kick straight up the field If lined up neur a side-line. Your teammates can cover such a kick best and usually throw the receiver near a side-line, the weakest position for the attack. If such a punter kicks across to the other sideline the receiver has a far better chance to run it back as few men can cover a punt of this kind. Watch the punters in the next game on those points. If the game Is close the klcki r who uses Judgment In placing his punts will give his team a big advantage. (Copyright. 1026). Delavan Doughboys Win. Delavan, lit., Nov. 25. (Special.)
