JAYHAWKERS SOUTHERN CHAMP
Although No Game Is Scheduled With
Kansas for This Year Cornhusk

"With the basketball schedule within
a week of completion Conch Stlehm
has begun to train his men in the
finer pointH of the game in anticipa
tion of the Missouri Valley champion
ship games which will be scheduled
sometime in the first week of March
Nebraska is the undisputed cham
pion of the northern division The
Cornhuskers have defeated and com
pletely outclassed every team they
have met this year with the exception
At present the champions of the
southern dhisiou seems to be the
Kansas Jayhawkers They still have
their hardest Raines left on the sched-,
tile however On Tuesday night the
2fth, the play Missouri, following
which they play Washington at St.
LouIb, and on Friday the 28th, they
play Washburn. If the Jayhawkers
win these games they will be given
the championship of the southern di-'
Hut even at this rating they will not
have the perfect record that the Corn
huskers have won. Nebraska has won
both games they played with the Kan
sas Aggies by decisive scores. Out of
four games played with the Aggies,
Kansas won two. The Jayhawkers
have also lost a couple of other minor
games while the Cornhuskers have a
perfectly clean slate up to date.
Should Kansas be given the cham
pionship it has been arranged that one
of the championship games will be
played in Lincoln and one at Law
rence, and if a third is necessary It
will be played on neutral ground. Ac
cording to the athletic management It
may be necessary to charge a straight
admission price of seventy-five centa
to the championship series on account
of the heavy expense incurred. No sea
sou tickets will be accepted as the
management only guaranteed to admit
season ticket owners to eight basket
ball games and already they have been
admitted to ten games. As an exam
ple of the great loss sustained by
bringing teams to play at Lincoln at
the Drake games, only $107.50 was
taken In at both games and the total
expenses were over $150.
On Friday and Saturday night the
Ames Aggies will play at Lincoln and
on Saturday an informal dance will be
given after the game, for university
students only. Manager Quy Reed
promises that this will be a good dance
and if the gymnasium is not large
enough the chapel will be opened up.
All organizations must have pictures
for Comhusker taken before March 15.
CAN ENGINEERS PLAY BALL?
DEFIANT CHALLENGE ISSUED
Mechanics Have Been Challenged By
Electrics To Play Basket
A rumor has been going about the
campus the last few days to the effect
that the electrical engineers have chal

soon be forthcoming, the Mechanical
