100 years ago: Haskell celebrates win over Nebraska

November 27, 2009


From the Lawrence Daily World for Nov. 27, 1909: The analysis of the Kansas football loss to Missouri by a 12-6 score continues and most every person with football experience says Missouri deserved to win over the previously unbeaten KU team. A banquet is planned for Robinson Gymnasium to honor the team and it appears there will be more than 500 there. . . . The great Haskell Institute football victory over the mighty Cornhuskers of Nebraskas led to a great victory parade down Massachusetts when the Indians returned. The happiness of Haskell over its victory will make the school resent even more the efforts of Nebraska to steal their coach, Johnny Bender, who it appears will stay here. . . . Oscar C. Ayers, a farmer living near Olathe, was in the city today seeking men who would agree to buy bonds in an interurban rail proposition he is trying to float. So far, he doesn’t seem to have much behind him except his own enthusiasm.
