poach Yost is becoming optimistic

braska eleven Saturday afternoon.
Vith the Cornhusker tilt but two

red that the outlook from the
iverine standpoint was encouraging.
i that although he would not pre-
t a victory, he would say that
higan ought to play the Huskers
n at least. .
ince Yost all week has kept sil-
on the chances the Varsity had
,inst the strong western eleven, the
opus attitude has been one of "pre-'
ing for the worst." Michigan fans
e tried to be hopeful, they have
a great deal of confidence in Yost,
there has been a general senti-
it of hopelessness in the situa-
ow the outlook is surely brighter.

Unfavorable weather has been pre-
venting the military students under

Lincoln, Neb., Oct. 25.-Declining to
take any chances of crippling his
squad, which from reports is not in
the pink condition, Coach Stewart
limited football practice to signals and
the lightest kind of scrimmage. The
freshman team schooled in the Michi-
gan formations were easily outclassed
by the Varsity, who in turn sprung one
or two new formations which they
hope will bring similar successful re-
sults in Saturday's game.
Otoupalik, who made the only
touchdown in the Notre Dame game
will accompany the squad, but it is
very doubtful if Coach Stewart will use
him except in extreme necessity. His
place will probably be filled by Mc-
Mahon, a mighty speedy youngster,
but lacking in weight and experience.
Riddell another regular will be taken
to Ann Arbor but is not expected to
be used at the flanking position.
"Pay day in camp" is the hunch
that the Nebraska Cornhuskers' follow-
ers believe will come their way Sat-
urday, on Ferry field, when they settl
the old football account existing since
1905. Many handicaps have prevented
the Huskers from, meeting the Wol-
verines and settling their old griev-
ances, the defeat of 1905 and the score-
less tie in 1911, but Saturday the final
issue will be decided.
An even dozen years ago Coach
Yost's warriors walloped the Corn-
huskers by four touchdowns and two
goal kicks from the field by Hammond.
This was during the time when the
Wolverines were invincible in the Wes
and in the line-up were such celebri-
ties as Hammond, Schulte, Schultz,
Garrels, Curtis, Longman, Graham and
Norcross. The Huskers were piloted
by "Bummy" Booth," an ex-Princeton
center whose playing kept the score
from being a runaway. Also captain-
center, Borg, proved a very trouble-
some opponent for Germany Schultz
and caused many of the Big .Centers'
passes to go wrong but after Borg
was injured and taken from the line-
up the Yostans began the long re-
membered marches down the field.
In 1911 the Huskers were given the
opportunity to avenge the past defeat
when the Wolverines invaded Lincoln
field and with the sport dope giving
them slight odds it looked as if Ne-
braskan rooters would heap revenge
on their opponents:. For 70 minutes a
gruelling contest took place but the
count after the. last down, disclosed
hat the score was a tie 6 to 6. Mich-
gan gained a touchdown by blocking
a Nebraska punt, but the Huskers had
carried the ball from mid-field by
plunges over the Michigan goal and
he Cornhuskers claimed a victory in
arned yardage.
Saturday's combat will decide past
reaks and Coach Stewart's aggrega-
ion will fight until the final whistle
as blown. The Wolverines are pre-
ared for them knowing that they wi"
nd a team that so far has shown
uperior calibre to those of pan years
nd one that has size, speed and
The Nebraska mentor during the
last week has drilled his men in the
aerial attack and perfected his shift
hich resembles the renowned Min-
esota shift and is counting on these
ormations to worry the Michiganders
onsiderably. He is not figuring on

n easy victory but wit' an even
reak of luck expects to slip one over
)n Yost and his gridders.


In a letter to The Daily, a stu-
dent in the University, who was'
on one of Dr. Stewart's basket-°
ball squads, when the present'
Nebraska coach was at Oregon
Agricultural college, declared the
Cornhusker mentor lays defeat
primarily to the fact that the con-
quered team lacked the support of
its student body.
This student declares that the
best way to aid Michigan Satur-
day, to yell from start to finish.
Under Stewart's philosophy, the *
superior cheering of the Wolverine
contingent, will held the Michi-
gan eleven, while a lack of cheer-
ing will hurt.
The Cornhuskers are bringing a
bunch of rooters and a band with
them. It is up to every Michigan
student to get in the cheering sec-
tion and urge on the Wolverines.
The student support will be a*
great asset.

In the backfield, Nebraska has three
veterans, Cook, Dobson, and Otoupalik.
Nebraska does not use a quarterback
in its formation, but has two fullbacks,
one of them calling signals. Dobson
is left fullback, and Otoupalik is right
fullback.. Rhodes and Riddell, ends,
Kositzky and Wilder, guards, are the
other old men on the team.
A. D. Kathan, '19D, who was on the
basketball squad coached by Dr. Stew-
art, now of the Nebraska team, when
at Oregon Agricultural college, de-
clares that Stewart picks his foot-
ballers primarily for their size, big,
rangy men coming first. Fight is
the second essential to a football play-
er under Stewart, science ranks next,
and ability to master Stewart's style
of game comes last. Kathan pays re-
spect to Stewart's ability and declar-
es that the team from Oregon which
defeated M. A. C. 20 to 0 the same
year that the Aggies trounced Mich-
igan, is a fair specimen of Stewart's
