Tho nc.yn of thn decision against Captain
Williams catiseh-moro wloum to come over
tho athletic eilppoilers here than does the
loss of any gamo on the schedule. Although
this Is the last year for Williams In ath
letics, his services were very much In de
mand In the- games with Illinois on Satur
day and the Michigan game on Thanksgiv
ing day. 'Williams n probably the best all-
rotmd athlete In the west. Ourlng his four
years nt the titate university he has starred
In baso ball, foot ball and basket ball, and
has enjoyed (lie captaincy of tho tenms of
each game. 1'ractlcilly without training,
he has represented Iowa In the broad Jump
and the hop-step. and-Jump tn the field
meets, having won the university "I" In all
four of -Jhc KAtnes, Williams, before he
violated rho rule that barred him from am
ateur games, Kindled the rules and decided
that his action n not contrary to tho rule.
Without WllllaitiK In tho game with Illinois
Saturday tho score l expected to bo low
