Two Regular Guards Have Not Reg
istered In 8chool for Coming Sem
ester and Chances for Missouri
Valley Championship Weak.
With the winning of the games in
the 1910 schedule from Drake Nebras
ka stock took a big jump. The chances
for the winning of the chanfplonship
of the Missouri Valley In basketball
never were better, and the champion
ship of the northern section was al
moat secured.
But over the rosy 'sky a dark cloud
of disappointment and gloom appears.
When, tho game has been won by two
orthreo men on the team, to lose these
men means defeat. That at least two
of tho strong men on tho team will
be out of the game and the Cornhuskor
t five may go down to defeat from tho
loss of these men is the outlook. Wl
bur Wood, tho star guard of tho Con
busker quintet, has not registered ip
school for the. coming somester, and
tho loss of thty Stellar player will be
a severe blow to tho hopes of tho
Cornhuskor supporters. Wood has
played on tho Nebraska team for tho
past two years and has held down tho
position of .guard.
Wood. Good Forward.
This year Wood has beon shifted to
the position of guard and his work
there has put him in tho first class of
basketball men in the Missouri Valley.

Whllo there are a few games to be
