Discussion as to Man for the Position
Ruby and Dalley
University wrestling stock took a
dec ided boom yesterday when sixteen
men gathered In Dr. Clapp's office and
urgaulzed the Wrestling club for the
-tason of 11)14. While only two of
kist enr's team were out, the looks
of the new material was so promising
that the promoters were free to pre
dict that Nebraska will come back
and that the loBt urt Is sure to be re

class. For the three other weights
the team members will bo chosen from
among the new men.
The question of a coach Is Just now
jippermost In the minds of the mat
artists. In his selection Dr. Clapp will
probably bo guided by the preference
shown by the club. Two names, those
of Owen Dalley and Glen Ruby, have
been prominently mentioned. Objec
tion to Dalley has been raised because
some of the tactics used In profes
sional wrestling are not permitted by
the western Intercollegiate association.
While the club members concede that
Dalley Is a clean professional wres
tler, some of them feel that the po
sition should be given to Ruby because
of the fact that his Intercollegiate ex
perience has given him a personal In
terest In amateur wrestling and a close
