Coach 8tagg Impressed With Work

Is a Lack of Daring At
tacks in the East.
CHICAGO, 111., Doc. 1. Moro large
games for tho Maroons woro bagged by
Director Stagg while ho was In the
east. Upon his urrival home yester
day tho coach stated that Cornell and
Chicago probably would meet In an
indoor track meet this winter. Nego
tiations havo not yet been closed, ac
cording to tho conch, but tho meet Is
assured, as both colleges desire such
This was not tho only piece of good
news which Stagg brought back with
him. Chicago would havo littlo dlf
culty, he Buid, In arranging for a
gamo next fall with Pennsylvania if
tho MarooiiB wanted one, but It is
probable tho game will not bo played,
as Chicago, In Stagg's opinion, has
all and possibly more Uian it can
handle next fall.
This breaking down of the old bar
rier between eaBt and wcBt, as shown
by the willingness of both Cornell
and Pennsylvania to meet tho Ma
roons In track and football, wbb
hailed with delight by tho 'Midway
Btudents last night. They bollovo it
paves the way to at least one annual
match with tho oast in each branch
of tho major sports.
Will Be Feature of Season.
As Cornell has been leader In track
athletics In the east for the last two
years and as the Maroons are the
present conference track champions,
the moot, which In all probability will
be hold in Chicago, will be the feature
of tho Maroons' indoor season. No
date has been set for tho meet, but
It probably will take place late in the
Stagg had little idea of garnishing
his schedules with eastern teams
whon ho left for tho east last Wednes
day. A Cornell official suggested a
dual Indoor meet between Cornell and
Chicago. This idea Stagg seized upon
at once, and expressed a willingness
on his part to take on the Ithaca
in the clothing business and
team. So negotiations begun more
or Icbs unofficially.
This will bo tho first time a Chicago
track team has met an eastorn team

Stagg is looking forward to tho con
test with much interest, ns ho con
siders the material in Bight for hl&
team this year to be at least as good
tnd probably better than it was last
year; Cornell also has a strong nu
cleus, having its two Btars, Coo'x. who
won tho Olympic polo vault last sum
mer, and Talbot, the champion weight
thrower, again eligible.
While little Beems. to stand in the
way of a Pennsylvania-Chicago gamo
for next year, it is probable that tho
Quakers and Mnrcons will not meet
on tho football field in 1909, as the
Maroons have too heavy a schedule
ulready in sight Since Stagg has
declared that it will be impossible
even to meet' Michigan, should Michi
gan come back into tho conferoacei
fold, it is also jmp-ssihlo for the Ma
roons to meet tho Quakers.
