NEW RILES ADOPTED
Cfiference Decides in Regard to
Athlete legibility Nebras
ka's Finances Sea
. In addition to refusing the claims of
Nebraska and Notre Dame the confer
ence adopted somo new ruleB, One in
regard to the temporary reinstatement
of athletes reads as follows:
"The conference authorizes the com
mittee on eligibility to hear cases of
minor violation of amateur Bport, and,
if the circumstances warrant, to grant
reinstatement, providing such deter
mination on the part of the commit
tee Is subject to the action of the con
ference at its next meeting."
It was also decided that "no person
is eligible to compete in conference
games who takes part in a contest
where money prizes are offered, re
gardless of the disposition to be made
of the prize."
, Although Bmaller than last year, the
surplus in the treasury of the athletic
board at the end of a season amounts
to a goodly figure. Of the nine games
it which Nebraska received a share
01 tho proceeds the total gate receipts
were $16,470. Our share amounted to
$8,266. In only one case, the Colorado
game, Nebraska received only her ex
penses. In the other games the finan
cial results are as follows.
Lincoln H. S $ 70 $ 55
-Doane 200 165
Qrinnell .' 510 105
Minnesota 4960 2180
Missouri 900 116
Haskell 2200 1700
Kansas 900 450
Knox 1400 800
Northwestern 4600 2300
The band has been at a considerable
expense during the season, and there
are several large items on the list
The new grandstand and bleachers
were erected at a cost of $2,000. This
la the only permanent improvement,
but the accommodation of the grounds
is now 'such that it is thought it will
be unnecessary to provide greater seat
ing capacity for several years to come.
Tho coaching of tho team cost $2,500.
$800 was spent on the training table,
-for equipments of the team, and about
$1,600 for the expenses of the Minne
sota and Missouri trips. $250 was ex
pended in the care of the team and spe
cial policing cost $75 more. As will
be seen, these figures are all In round
numbers, but It is a close estimate.
.v Besides tho items mentioned, there are
' weral other bills yet unpaid.
The Benefit Game.
It seems likely that there will be
a post-season benefit game for "Chick"
Shedd, who was injured in tho Haskell
game. The game will be between the
varslty and aJeam made up of "has -
beens." Tho object Is a moBt worthy
one, and It It to be hoped that 4if sat-

Colorado in froable.
The Colorado State University team
has been getting Into trouble as a re
sult of discoveries made after the
Thanksgiving game. Other Colorado
teams object to playing a team that
clothes- itself in armor, and when the
discovery was made there was consid
erable excitement in Denver over the
matter. The charge against the team
Is for wearing pieces of armor made of
galvanized iron, steel, and tin plates.
Defenders of the Boulder team contend
that the pieces were worn for the pur
pose of protecting certain mombers of
the team who are crippled in some

way, and that In the way in which the
armor was worn the rules were not
violated. The armor discovered con
sists of a chest protector composed of
sole leather, to which is riveted a sheet
of spring steel; two shoulder pro
tectors, In each of which is a sheet of
galvanized tin; a glove as a protection
for tho hand, containing a sheet of
galvanized tin, and a shoe with leather
covered steel as a brace. The chest
protector was worn by Tonkin, who
clalmB to have a caved-ln chest. The
discovery was made on the occasion
of the Thanksgiving game between
Colorado and the Denver Athletic club.
In the face of present circumstances
it is doubtful is any action will be
taken in the matter.
The football boys received their "N"
sweaters last Wednesday. About seven
teen were included in the list.
The football boys had their pictures
taken at Townsond's studio Wednes

BIG NINE CONfERENCE
Nebraska Held to Her Former
Place Reasons for and
Against Admission of
The "Big Nine" conference held In
Chicago Friday refused to concede tho
right of Nebraska to membership in
their exclusive band. Football hence
forth will be played in tho University
of Nebraska the same as in tho past.
We will fight our battles, and all will
bo by our own individual effort. Tho
refusal seems to have been given be
cause tho committee wlBhes to restrict
the membership of the "Big Nine" to
nine institutions, and as none of tho
present members seemed disposed to
withdraw voluntarily, Nebraska and
Notro Dame, the other school" suelng
for admission, were left out. The con
ference committee desired to have it
understood that Nebraska was not ad
mitted because she did not conform to
the conference rules or because sho
was not playing the right kind of ball.
Nebraska was represented by Doctor
F. E. Clements, who left for Chicago
on Thursday night for the purpose of
presenting tho case of the Cornhuskers.
Membership seemed desirable for
two reasons. In tho first place, there
would be more of an encouragement
for men athletically inclined to come
to Nebraska; and, In the second place,
it would be much easier to secure
games with good teams, and the pan-'j
agement would In a financial. "wajfeflt
accordingly. Not only UMfc'Wssary
to put up a large guarantee yJn order
to get a member of the ''Big Nino" to
play on home ground, but tfyere is an
other conslderatirx. It Is tho large
games, or the gwnes with teams of
reputation that draw tho large crowds
and the .more we have of them, the
better off the athletic board will be. It
would be much- easier to schedule
games with members of the "Big Nino"
and Nebraska's reputation would riBo
accordingly. At present Manager En
gle is having a hard time trying to
schedule games with eastern institu
tions, and It seems doubtful if next
year's .schedule will be as good as the
one played this year. On the other
hand, Nebraska would be compelled'to
work hard in order to sustain her rep
utation, and although we dislike to
think It, there is a possibility of fall
ing Into tho same condition as Iowa,
who at one time had tho winning team
of tho west, and who has now fallen
to tho lowest place among tho teams
of tho league. Nebraska had a team
this year to whom the Chicago papers
begrudglngly conceded a place second
only to Michigan, and while the pros
pects arc good for an oven bettor team
next year, football Is an uncertain mat
ter. Tho "Big Nino" embraces the fol
lowing teams: Michigan, Minnesota,
Chicago, Northwestern, Indiana, Illi
nois, Iowa, Wisconsin and Purdue. Of
these Michigan is tho undisputed
champion. Chicago and Minnesota are
rivals for tho second place, and as
their teams did not meet this year,
tho place is in dispute. General opin
ion, however, concedes Minnesota's
claim. Nebraska defeated Minnesota
fairly and squarely, consequently the
second position belongs by right to the
