"Corn-Huskers" Contemplate Adver-
tising University in State
by Use of Films.
LINCOLN, NEB., Nov. 17.-Nebras-
ka's game with Michigan November 25
will in all probability be reproduced
by a moving pitcure camera as a me-
dium for advertising the University of
Nebraska. The Cornhuskers are plan-
ning to send the pictures around the
west in order to induce students to
matriculate in the university. A fur-
ther plan to have the; rooters' efforts
reproduced by phonograph for the
same purpose. The coaches and the
players all favor the idea as they fore-
see a chance to gain new football ma-
terial through the advertising.

Fred M. Conklin, captain of this
year's team, made his first appearance
on the Varsity in 1909, occupying the
end position in all of the major con-
tests of that season. "Conk" had won
his fame in prep school athletics on
the Ann Arbor high school eleven and
was considered one of the best ends
in the state. He played a splendid game
on the varsity that year and aided ma-
terially in defeating Penn and Minne-
The season of 1910 found the squad
well supplied with ends and Yost then
shifted Conklin to tackle. This proved
very easy for him and he was kept at
the same place throughout the year.
When the bunch assembled at Whit-
more this year, it was expected that
the new captain would still continue
in tackle. However, changes were nec-
essary after the first two games and
Conklin went back to his old place at
end. In the Vanderbilt and Cornell
games, he filled the Iosition creditably
and has proved a steady and consistent
player during his entire football ca-
reer at the university.

G. A. Paterson, '14 Eng., prepared for
the university at Detroit Central high
school, playing center on his high
school team. He played guard on the
All-Freshman team last fall and at that
time was considered good Varsity ma-
terial. He has been kept at the same
position this season, playing every con-
test. Paterson weighs about 200 lbs.
and is 20 years old.
Neil McMillan, Varsity quarterback
in 1910, came to the university from
Detroit University School. He played
with that school during his prep days
and captairied the team which was the
undisputed champion of preparatory
schools of the west during the season
of 1908. McMillan won his numerals
in 1909 on the all-fresh team and was
given the charge of the varsity during
the entire season of the following year.
Miller H. Pontius, '14, hailing from
Circleville, Ohio, played fullback on
the All-Freshman team last season and
was a first class man. Pontius weighs
about 190 pounds and is making good
on the line this year. He is 20 years
The University Fathers were prom-
inent among the "rooters." Regents
Sawyer, Clemens, Leland, Grant, Han-'
chett and Bulkeley came from out of
town to witness the game.

Loyal to Michigan, despite the inter-
val of years since graduation, many of
her former athletes were in the crowds
at Ferry Field this afternoon. Gridiron
heroes whose names thrilled the pres-
ent warriors when they were playing
"rugby" on the corner lot, congregated
to watch the struggle and recall the
times when they felt the fierce excite-
ment of the game and bore their Al-
ma Mater on to victory. Some could
remember when the games were play-
ed on the campus while to others the
cheering throngs in the present bleach-
ers recalled the last encounter with
Pennsylvania on Ferry Field..
Not alone was the "college game"
represented but baseball and track had
a quota of stalwart men who have the
everlasting right to wear that yellow
"M" upon a background of dark blue.
To them, the contest portrayed the
same spirit that they had felt when
they were fighbing on the diamond and
the cinders to phold the honor of the
Alaize and Blue. It was with one feel-
ing, however, that these former stars,
rooted for Michigan.
Among them, the following were rec-
ognized: James E. Duffy (football),
Bay City; John D. Hibbard (baseball),
Chicago; Martin Dana (track); Will-
iam Heston, Michigan's greatest foot-
ball player; "Johnny" Garrels, anoth-
er great football man and whose marks
in the hurdles still stand; Harold
Weeks (football), Detroit; Tom and
Harry Hammond, Chicago, two foot-
ball stars of the old days; C. L. Harp-
ham (track); Norman Hill (baseball),
last year's captain; "Griff" Hays(base-
ball); Thompson, "Tommy," Lothrop,
(baseball); "Sully" Sullivan (base-
ball); Albert Benbrook (football), the
leader of last year's champions and
All-American guard; "Chick" Lathers
(baseball) the Tiger infielder; Falcon
O'Brien (baseball); R. W. Ranney
(football); Irving K. Pond (track);
I. K. Stone (track); S. C. Snow (base-
ball); Jerry Utley (baseball); Edward
Dunn (baseball); Harry Workman
D. M. Ferry, Jr., whose father do-
nated the present athletic field to the
university, occupied one of the boxes.
