It Is hardly probable that tho cham pionship games botwoon Kansas and Nebraska will now bo played. Kan sas replied to Coach Stlohm's lottor Wednesday and refused to accept Om aha as tho place to play unless Ne braska agreed to guarantoo expenses. 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. Demand 8eems Unreasonable. 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 Nebraska should pay money out of its treasury, if tho teams failed to draw well In Omaha, In order to defend the title against Kansas when ill has already defeated tho Jayhawkers four times, is hard for Coach Steihm and Manager Eager to see. It looks very much as if Kansas were trying to force Nebraska to refuse to play. Can Claim Championship. If tho games aro not played in Om aha this week they will not bo played at all, for Steihm will not keep tho men here dver Easter vacation in or der to keep them in shape nor will ho assemble the team after the vacation. To keep tho team in condition would mean steady work and if it were to lay off until after the holidays It would take several weoks to got into form again. Nebraska can rightly claim tho and tho coach does not intond to bo obstinate about- it, but if Kansas re fuses to como to terms on its own prd posals then the games will not bo played.
