Football under the new rules has proven itself to be a success. The new rules have come to stay. Although they have been in operation only three years, they are meeting with the approval of the general public, and as a result football is gaining a firmer hold on her place at the head of college sports and athletics.
As a result of the new rules the Normal has succeeded in developing a football machine which is placing her among the fastest college teams of the state. Although the outlook was rather dubious at the beginning of the season, with onlv five “N” men back as a nucleus. Coach Scherer succeeded in bringing out a team that played an important part in tying up the state championship.
The real caliber of the team was brought out in the University of Nebraska game when they succeeded in holding the “all but champions of the Missouri Valley” to 25 points. The game was played in the rain, but the way the boys blocked the beef and strength of the much-vaunted Cornhuskers was a credit to their institution.
We again succeeded in defeating our former rivals, the “Doanc Tigers.” in a close and exciting game. After which the team turned all its resources, bent every energy toward defeating our old-time arch-enemy, the Bellevue Indians, whose unjust criticisms of last year were still ringing in our cars. We knew that if we could turn the trick the nuich-sought-after pennant would be ours. The fates were against us. Three of our regular men were out of the game on account of injuries. The morning of the game came with two inches of snow on the field. The forward pass upon which we depended to win the game could not be used, nevertheless the boys fought to the finish. When smoke of action had cleared away the score stood 18 to 10 against us. But our work had not been in vain; we had left our marks on the Bellevue team. They went into the Doanc game a week later in a crippled condition and the Tigers, who had already been defeated by Peru and Hastings, walked all over them. As a result, Hastings, Doanc, Bellevue, and Peru are all claiming championship honors.
