It Is hardly probable that tho cham

Nebraska will now bo played. Kan

Wednesday and refused to accept Om

In tho last letter sent by Kansas
the Jayhawkers offered to play any
time, any placo and with officials that
could bo agreod upon. Coach Stolhm
in replying named Omaha as tho placo;
Thursday, Friday and Saturday of this
week as tho tlmo; and In a tolophono
convocation it was agreed that Hy
land and Hoopoe should officiate.

Nothing, however, was said about
expenses, both Coach Stolhm and
Manager Eager supposing that as long
as tho games wore to be played on a
neutral floor each team should take
half of tho proceeds. And now Kansas
comes back with a domand that Ne
braska guarantee expenses. Just why

treasury, if tho teams failed to
