How It Works Oirt Football followers know that a SEES FIRST GRID GAME AT NEBRASKA nis Players Unable to Withstand Golden Clink— Shocks Net World. NEW YORK, Oct. 1.—<U.R)—As­ tonishment and regret echoed today the announcement of C.

The announcement Doped to Subdue the Columbus Eleven With Considerable Ease — Rain Makes Heavy Grid. Everything is in for the opening game of the 1926 football season for Lincoln high school, with Coach Jimmy Rich’s Columbus eleven furnishing the opposition in a game at the high school oval Friday afternoon at 3:15. A heavy rain late Thursday evening will make the going hard In the opening tilt, which will cut the speed of both elevens and make straight football the probable style of attack for the opposing elevens. The Red and Black will start the game with a team made up entirely of letter men, while the Discoverers have a team composed of half veterans and half new men. The capital city squad are favored to : take an easy victory, but the In-1 vaders may pull over a big surprise. Coach Browne 162 pounds per Babe Ruth Nominates Yariks To Trim Cardinals For The Title NEW YORK. Oct. 1.—(U.RWWe’re a cinch to win the world scries,” Babe Ruth, star Yankee outfielder and the only player who has appeared in seven world’s series said today. “You birds laughed at me down south last spring when I said the Yankees would win the pennant and you may laugh at me when I say we’ll beat the Cards because I see they’re the favorities in the betting,” the Babe said. “We’ve got too much pitching and hitting and we know every blade of grass In both ball parks." The Babe is limping from a slightly sprained ankle that is bound in hsavy tape but he said he would play 'if I have to go in on one leg.” FOUR MEW ONES IH All Survivors in Women's National Amateur Tournament Having First Chance at Title.

Miss Marriott left Cape Gris Nez, France under favorable conditions All this combined with the cageyness of Chick Meehan, whom Nebraskans well remember both a.s a player and coach at Syracuse, makes the date of November 20 loom large on the Husker calendar. vesterdav afternoon at 3*'>0 and miKht not be amiss to note that dore wants to try his talents, now-1 there in addition to those pending 4 i latent for many months, against at various points. was reported swimming strong i. , .-rides” thruout the night until the co1dn«^ss ' of the water forced her to give up.

A line must work shoulder , to shoulder In perfect co-ordination i and nobody knows until after the Drake game whether the new men will fit Into the machine or not. Besides the green timber in the line there are Holm, Howell, Beck of the probable backfield starters who are also green. A schedule with as tough a foe as Drake on the first date is not an ideal arrangement, but both camps were forced into it because of unavoidable circumstances. Both teams have been driven harder than they would have been ordinarily but with these obvious disadvantages there is also a chance that Nebraska, and Drake, too, foe that matter, may benefit In case neither eleven is weakened by injuries. Should Kill or Cure. It means a baptism of fire for the new men right off the bat. It should either kill or cure the Huskers for the Missouri Tigers a week trom Saturday. And for Drake it may aid them in their tussle with the navy midshipmen. And it may not. But if an easy foe Is trampled on In the first tilt of the season It generally generates too much optimism. The use of the stadium was offered Coach Solem any time during the day excepting between 4 and 5 p. UL, when the Huskers’ 1926 machine will receive the final tuning up. This drill will be confined principally to punting, passing and limbering up exercises. Solem will take his squad to a field near Lincoln and there put it thru its paces the last time. The squad will be brought to the stadium then for the purpose of getting a “feel” of the sod and to try the air currents in punting. Coach Bearg was making no predictions. He felt exactly as did Solem that anything is likely to happen. Most of the minor Injil^les which the Huskers are carrying hare been caused by wet weather. Players plowing around In the mud have pulled muscles but they’ll all be ready for the whistle Saturday. A big rally will be held at the coliseum Friday evening starting at T:15. Coach Bearg, Henry Schulte and Ed Weir are on the list of speakers. Coaches Oakes and Black will be presented to the student body. The ’varsity squad will be introduced. calls Leaping Iron Fence When Guard at Husker Field Wasn’t Looking. Agree To Postpone Ames-Bear Ccmflict By Robert L. Finch. Alumni 8«cret«ry Drake Unlveraltjr. DBS MOINES, la.. Oct. 1.—A kid peered at a marching man with a gun on his shoulder, behind the big iron fence around old Nebraska field. As the student soldier reached the far end of his beat the kid leaped the iron fence, dashed across the twenty foot interval to the wooden fence, fell Inside, rolled under the bleachers, came up under the lower row of seats, brushed off his clothes and sat down as. If he belonged there just as old Pete Hauser of the Haskell Indians kicked off in a memorable battle with Nebraska. Thus 1 was introduced to Nebraska football under "Bummy” Booth. My kid eyes bulged with awe as I watched old John Westover lead those giant Nebra.ska teams thru two seasons of his captaincy. I saw Johnny Bender do those Incomparable aerial stunts as would be tacklers plunged at him only to miss him ridiculously. 8aw Bender -Score. I followed Nebraska to Kansas in 1903 and split my lungs when this same Bender made that scamper off the Kansas right end for his eighty yard run for the only score of the game. Then I came to Drake and have followed the football fortunes of my alma mater ever since. Nebraska was my first love. Her system of play and the traditions of the institution athletically as well as scholastically have always remained to me beyom^raise. Her contact with coming varsity men thruout the state of Nebraska remains the most Intimate and binding of any Institution In the country. Babies are first taught the **U-U-U-N-I.” Later they learn to prattle "Mother." It becomes an honor for any boy in the state to aspire to a place on the Nebraska varsity. This Is as it should be. But Drake, too, has her traditions, her loyalties, her achievements and her ambitions. My alma mater is modest about herself. She enrolls fewer men than any front rank football Institution In the country. Her athletic plant has been very ordinary until just last year when she built the beautiful new stadium and followed immediately with the field house which would bring honor to any campus In America. The field house will be opened this fall at homecoming time. was made at a dinner given Mile. Lenglen last night. “It’s really too bad,” said Helen Wills, former national women’s champion, at her home in Berkeley, Calif. “It seems a ehame.” Tilden. who lost virtually hla only rival with the deflection of Richards to the professional ranks, regretted that Richards had not remained an amateur until American players had recovered their lost supremacy on the courts from France. Tilden was surprised when Informed of Pyle’s announcement at Great Neck, L. I. Richards will go on tour with Suzanne Lenglen, the great French player, Mary K. Browne. Harvey Snodgrass and other stars picked from the amateur ranks by Pyle. A week ago Richards denied any intention to turn professional but admitted he was “doing it for the money, for my wife and my baby” in confirming Pyle’s announcement. Pyle said he will announce the names of three more prominent stars Sunday who have signed contracts to play professional tennis In exhibitions over the country. Miss Wills denied she was one of the stars. iTAy, Thammy! Sam Miller whose work keeps him near a telegraph wire in the grain exchange called Friday morning with this startling announcement: “The world’s series Is off. No— I say—off!

AMES, la., Oct. 1.—Five days of continuous rain, and with no immediate prospects of clearing weather or a field free from water has caused the postponement until Monday afternoon, of the Iowa State-Washington football clash at St. Louis, scheduled for Saturday.
