Hot Game with The Medics



University Plays Snappy Ball to Score of 6 to 6

LINCOLN, Neb. Oct. 14. — The first real test of the stuff that is in the university football team was made this afternoon, when it met the Kansas City Medics on the gridiron here. The Nebraskans had not shown up as well as their friends hoped for at the game with the Hawkeyes at Ames last week, but all anxiety as to their ability to play snappy, clean and effective football was dissipated after the bout today.

The game was fairly well attended and the spectators saw as fine an exhibition as has ever been witnessed in Nebraska. The score of 6 to 6 with all the points made in the last half and the call of time stopping the Nebraska team in what looked like a match to a reasonable certain addition to their side of the score, tells the tale of two evenly balanced teams. The work of both was good. Without any especially noteworthy individual playing, the game was one of straight football from start to finish.

For the Nebraskans, Carver made the touchdown and Williams kicked goal. Morely made the touchdown and Lewis kicked goal for the visitors.
