Minor running for the points on the second
play, a forward paaa giving him ' hla
chance. The scoring machine' continued Its
work without hitch during the remainder
of the game, the Cornhuskers having no
difficulty In doing about as they pleased.
Doane displayed occasional flashes of form,
and once In a while forced the Cornhuskers
to punt, but more often than not tbe ball
waa 'regained immediately on these, occasions.
The game waa the last one that will ever
be played on the present Nebraska field,
the new engineering building having been
ordered commenced ss soon as. possible
after the close of the season. kIt also
marked the last local appearance In tout- -
ball togs of Captain John Weller. whose I
career as a moleskin warrior will close'
next Thursday at St. Louis. The crowd t which watched the game was composed
mostly of enthusiasts on hand to bid. tha '
team farewell. Tha approval of the rooters ;
was especially bestowed on Weller, whose
work during his captaincy has been such
as to mark him as one of the bright lights
In Nebraska football annals.
Nebraska, though facing Its easiest op- - J
ponent of the year, msde frequent "resort j

the past week, were either not present. in i
the line-u- p at the opening of the game,aor i
were not allowed to play the contest oat.
Fullback Kroger's place was taken f by.
Peek ley. who played a brilliant game till
replaced by Chaloupka, whose plaea la tho
I'ne was taken by Miller. Chaloupka
reeled off four touchdowns during his spree
at fullback, proving a terror to the llgit, '
Doane men. Beltser, who replaced Harvsy
at right end during the second half,, also j
played hard foot ball, showing considerable j
promise as a punter. , '
Nebraska started out with the evident j
Intention of piling up a big score, and bad
amassed forty-tw- o points by the tlmeythe
first half ended. The second half, was
even more productive, despite Its shorter
duration, touchdowns coming almost as fast
