An Innovation In University Athlotlo
Cirolon A ralr Sliod Amtionoo Names
of tho Winners,
Tho boxing and wrestling con
toBt which occurred in tho gym
nasium last Saturday evening was
a success in uvory sense oE (ho
word. This is the first exhibition
of tho kind that has occurred in
univorsity circles, and much
praise, is duo tho men who havo
exponded so much time, and hard
work in undertaking 5',. This has
boon a successful year for univor
sity athletics genorally and this
success appears to bo spreading
outside of tho football fiold.
Tho boxing and wrestling con
test was to havo taken placo
March 23d, but on account of tho
dramatic club attraction, and the
nearness of spring vacation (?)
it was postponed till Saturday,
April Oth.
Chairs were placed on the gym
nasium lloor around tho ring and
and mats. 13y half past eight
these were filled.
"Billy" Hayward then intro
duced the referee for tho evening
Mr. P. J. Cosgrovo. Mr. Cos
grove is an old Ann Arbor stu
dent, and for two years hold tho
light weight boxing champion
ship of that university. He also
played right end on tho 'varsity
foot ball team.
Tho first event of the evening
was n light weight boxing con
test, foi points only, between
"Dean" Gardner and P. J. Cros
ner. This contest, as well as all
tho other boxing contests of tho
evening, was conducted under tho
Marquis of Queensbury rules,
which limited tho event to three
rounds of three minutes each,
with one minute intermission be
tween each round. Tho "Dean"
did some plucky work, but was
unable to get away from Crosner's
superior reach.
John Cameron and E. 0. Pace
next faced each other on tho mats
in the light weight wrestling
match. After twenty minutes of
hard work on both sides the men
retired, neither scoring a fall.
Cameron was on top of Pace sev
eral times, but was unable to move
him, and seemed content to keep
him in that position without at
tempting to do more with him.
As Fair did not appear in the
ring against Flippin for the heavy
weight boxing, the first bout of
the middle weight boxing contest
between Mueller and Clausner
now took place. This was a ver'
well matched contest, both men
being in good trim. It would
have been hard for any one out
side of tho referee to tell in whose
favor this bout onded.
Tho second wrestling bout be-
twoon Cameron and Paco was tho
next ovont. This ending as tho
first, neither men scoring a fall.
Tho univorsity authorities ob
jected to Mr. Tauscan, tho trainer
of Mr. Soivoking,appoaringon the
program. To till in this ovont,
Mr. W. TT. Oury kindly consonted
to a five minutes wrestling bout
with Flippin, but had it stated
that he did this as an untrained
man, who wished to soo what ho
could do against a man in train
ing. This ovont was probably
tho most oxciting ouo of the oven
ing. Oury sooured first hold, but
was unable to got Flippin otT his
foot. By working hard, with tho
samo hold a socond titno, Oury
succoeded in gotting Flippin two
points down. Flippin's training
hero showed to advantago, and as
Oury was nearly winded, Flippin
with a littlo work secured a
As Muollei' was announced tho
winner of tho first middle weight
boxing bout, A. II. Andrews now
contested his right to the gold
medal. Muoller did most of tho
loading, and Andrews' work was
moro on the defensive.
Tho names of tho winners wore
next announced, and as each name
was called tho winner received a
neat littlo gold medal. Follow
ing aro tho names of tho lucky
ones: "Winner of tho light weight
box, P. J. Clausner. E. O. Paco
won the light weight wrestling
match by default. Geo. Flippin
received tho heavy weight boxing
medal by default Muoller so
cured tho honors in the middle
weight box. Cameron and Pace
were to have one moro trial of
eight minutes for a fall in tho
middle weight wrestling, and tho
contest was to be decided in the
future, if neither secured a fall in
that lime.
This last contest which resulted
as tho preceding ones between
Cameron and Paco, closed tho
program, and four hundred peo
ple left the Armory feeling satis
fied with tho first university box
ing and wrestling contest.

Tho following lottor was givon
to tho board of regents of tho
university at an informal mooting
on Wednesday night by Chaucol-

Lincoln, Nob., April 10. To tho
Moinbors of tho Board of Rogonts
Goutlemou; It becomes my dutv to
inform you that I havo this day ro
coived and accepted a cull to tho pres
idency of tho stato univorsity of Ohio,
to outer upon tho duties of that olllco
on July 1st. I, therefore, prosout my
resignation, to tako ofrect upon that
t hopo you will understand that this
stop is not taken hastily. Aftor sov
eral mouths of constant and caroful
consideration of institutional interests
and oillcial duties and family responsi
bilities and cares, it seems that this
change is desirablo and that I am at
least reasonably free to make it. It
would bo irrelovant to attempt to
rocito here all the reasons leading to
this conclusion, and it would doubtless
bo as unnecessary and futilo as irrolo
vant, 1 havo vory sincerely endeavored
to dotormino whoro my duty lies both
in tho educational world and as to
pergonal and family affairs which T
havo entirely neglected for many years,
but which cannot properly bo longer
without moro of my attention and
oversight. It fortunately happens that
there is offered in Ohio an unusually
favorable opportunity to continue my
work in the educational Held and moot
tueso personal obligations.
It ought not to bo nocessary for mo
to assuro you that I keenly appreciate
all tho courtesy and confidence that
havo marked our oillcial relations, and
that this institution will always bo an
object of my solicitous interest and
regard. I havo given it four years of
as faithful service as lay in my power;
and I think it can bo truthfully said
that tho first and most immediato task
to which you called mo has already
been accomplished. Tho university
has my heartiest good wishes for its
I beg each of you to accept tho as
surance of my personal respect and
regard; and that you will believe mo
to be, as ever, most cordially yours,

Tho matter was a complete sur
prise to every one, and many were
tho expressions of regret heard
among the students and faculty
when the fact was made known.
The regents said that it was as
much of a surprise to them as to
any one, and they were filled with
Mr. Estabrook, a warm friend
of tho chancellor, said, "It was
an absolute surprise, wo had no
intimation of what was coming.
Wo were called to an informal
meeting and the resignation was
handed us. Wo feel that it is a
great blow to the university. Ho
has been working so hard this
winter for tho institution trying
to get the appropriation and ho
believes that if he had not been
successful in obtaining the appro
priation, that he would not havo
resigned. Ho had the good of
tho university at heart and it will
bo a very hard matter to find a man
