mit that Chicago tight to walk away with
tha flag again this year, per h ape with a lit-

this opinion la the popular one among fan.
The Cuba are even stronger tban laat year,
and no other team, unless It be Philadel
phia, la believed to be ahead of It class.
- Of courae. New Tork devotees profesa to
aea In the Oianta tha contenders, but thla
conviction la not shared In extensively out
side of New Tork. While it may be severe
judgment to pronounce It a one-pitcher
team, yet that la precisely the verdict that
already has been passed by some who must
be given the right of opinion. But New

flaying, but will the Improvement be such
as to lift the team from fourth place Into
the contender's eiassT Philadelphia roust
be reckoned with for second place, and
maybe Ptttsburg, now that Wagner haa
( signed. In tha American league the White
Box were picked as tha favorites at tha
opening, but sine tha opening develop
ments have suggested the wisdom ef going
alow In tha matter of picking the winner.
Th Sox, thla year as last and the year
before, have a fighting team, but are bar
ricaded by so many aggravating Ifs. If

pitching staff holds out; If this and If that
The Athletic ought to be atill good, so
ought Detroit, but Detroit appears no
stronger thsn last year, when it had to
fight to the Ust ditch to win. The High
landers and the St Louis Browns have
friends who count on them for great thing.
They probably will be stubborn warriors
to tha last, particularly the Browns, with
that great array of old-time stars, but they
have not yet been picked as the pennant
' winner. All In all, tha National league
appears tlie stronger.
Omaha's Infield looks better thsn ever,
even with Graham out of tha line. King
is playing at shortstop Ilka a veteran, and
Buck might always have played second,
judging from the work h la doing. Autrey
and Austin are stars, and the whole quar
tette la full of pepper to the limit It Is
a stone wall, and the absence of Dolan will
not be felt. In fart, no place was open
to the veteran among that array. And the
outfield Is doing just aa well. House
holder, Welch and Belden ar a great trio
'and make up a defensive aggregation that
Is hard to equal and can't be beaten In the
west And aa for offense just look at
. the score tables.
The week witnessed an event In base ball
which cannot help but command the sober
Interest of Omaha and Western league fans.
That waa nothing more nor less than the
transfer of old Joe Dolan from Omaha to
Des Moines. Dolan put In many seasona of
excellent work for Pa Rourke and - Pa
Rourke and all his friends hope the veteran
will be able to do the same for Dea
Moines. In some respect, chiefly, pinch
hitting and general balancing power, Dolan
., will prove a moat valuable asset to. Des, and If he is In aa good condition as
he thinks ha la, will add strength to the
Certainly there Is cause for congratula
tion In Omaha over the start the Cham
pions of the Western league have made.
Of course they opened the season with a
team that, unless strengthened, will not be
one of the leaders, but even at that Omaha
haa gone far enough to demonstrate that It
Is a well balanced team, playing tha Inside
game, much stronger at the bat than ever
and mora capable of winning the pennant
this year than last-
Josh Clarke's experience In base ball Is
almost unique. Ten years ago he was with
Louisville In a major league, then- he
dropped back Into tha minora, where he
remained until 1905, when ha joined the Bt
Louis Cardinals. II stayed there but a
abort time, going to Toledo. Now, Ilk a
"fresh stripling from the brushes, he jumps
hack Into fast company at Cleveland and
promises all kinds of things for tha season.

LINCOLN. April 18. 8peclal.)-The an
nual Easter vacation which began Wednes
day at the University of Nebraska Inter
rupted the work of the Comhusker athletes
and retarded the spring training for a
week. Nearly all of the men on both the
track and baseball squads broke practice
Tuesday and will not return to the training
camp until the latter part ef next week.
Only a few of the faithful track candidates
remained at tha state school during the
spring recess to continue training. The
base ball team played a game with tha
Wenleyan nine on the day vacation began,
and none of Its member wa seen In a
uniform after that When tha candidates
return after the recess they will be pushed
through the final two weeks of prelimin
ary work for tha firt big lnter-colleglat
contests of the spring. The track men will
be put In shape for the opening meet
with Kansas at Lawrence and tha base ball
players will be trimmed for the eastern

The Gophers will coma to Lincoln for a
tournament with tha Oomhuskers early In
May. The date for the two other tourna
ments have not been set, but It has been
settled that the Nebraska player wilt meet
Missouri at Columbia and Kansas at Law
rence. The Cornhuskers participated In no
Inter-collegiate contests last year. A tourna
ment was scheduled with the Oophers for
Minneapolis, but rain prevented the meet
ing. .
The most promising player on the Ne
braska courts this year are Slaughter,
Toung, Post Ersklne, Rltchl and Racely.
The work of Slaughter and Post has been
of a high quality In the doubles. Toung
and Ritchie show up the best in the indi
vidual work. The preliminaries for select
ing a team tf three men to represent Ne
braska In the Inter-collegiate tournaments
will be held during the next three Hreeks.
Gymnasts Cosnln to Lincoln. ,
Tha annual meet of the western inter
collegiate gymnastic association will be
held In Lincoln on April, 1909. Dr. Clapp,
who returned this week from the laat con
test of the association at Madison, Induced
tho other members to adopt a plan of rota
tion by which the meet will b held at a
different school each year until It ha been
pulled off at every school In the associa
tion. The new rules of th organisation
provide for having thl method of rotation
oontlnued. The old member of th associa
tion are Nebraska, Chicago, Wisconsin and
Minnesota. Washington college of Bt Louis
was taken Jn at the recent meeting. The
annual Contest of the association will b
at Minnesota In 1910, at Chicago In 1911, at
Bt Louis In 1912 and at Madison In 1913.
New rule regarding entrle In the event
and changing the plan of scoring were
adopted at tha Madison meeting. Hereafter
but three men will be allowed to enter each
event and the number of men representing
a school will be limited to six. At Madison
Wisconsin and Chicago each had a team
or six men; Minnesota had tavr men and
Nebraska had two contestant. Tha method
of scoring was changed so that tb total
scores of the team In each event will be
counted In determining the winning ohool.
Vntll now the number of firsts won by
the teams were counted. Under the new
rule a team may not have any firsts, but
may win the contest If the number of th
aggregate scores Is high enough.

Word was circulated arouni the university
campus yesterday that two of the deposed
members of the athletic board would de
mand an Investigation of rumors which im
plicated them in Irregularities In the us
of the athletlo funds. The charge made
against the men are that they made per
sonal use of the athletic money in paying
part of the expense of certain members
of the 1907 footbaal team. Th room rent
and board of Captain Weller, so the rumor
said, was paid by a certain member of the
athletlo board during the football season.
It Is said that Weller refused to play foot
ball unless his expense on the training
' table were paid, and In order to keep him
on the team the men who has the financial
means kindly helped the captain settle his
personal expenses, it is said. Careful In
quiry among members of the faculty and
former members of the athletic board
proved that no 'Investigation, however, of
the rumored Irregularities would be made
by either the men Implicated or by the
university senate. ,
The rumors of Irregularities among the
former members of the board directed com
ment to the new members of the board
and brought out a discussion of their
ability to do good work In the Interest
of Comhusker athletics. A glance at th
record of the three men convinced tho
skeptic that the professors were well
able to serve In their new positions. Dr.
H. H. WsJte, Dr. Phillip nd Dr. R. H.

Dr. Walte ha been connected with ath

at Amherst for four year and during that
time was on of the best football men
In s-hool, and was a star gymnast. After
graduation from Amherst he went to a
southern university, where he became the
head of the athletic department and gave
the school a clean athletlo system.
Dr. Phillips during his college course

Post-Season Grapple of Wrestlers
Folwell and Foster Reejaest for
Harvard Ilea to Let ta
Athlete Sleep.
Th post-season wrestling series between
Graham Foster of Tsle, and Robert Fol
well of. Pennsylvania ha been an inter
esting "thing and an odd one. Folwell
having met with great success In th meet
before the intercollegiate championship
apparently was piqued when the Tale
captain threw htm In the Intercollegiate
contests and asked to get satisfaction at
a meet later In the year. For the second
time Folwell was beaten and again It was
arranged that they should meet. This
Is hardly like college sport, but more Ilk
personal rivalry between two wrestler.
Whether It ia exactly In the line of the pur
pose of Intercollegiate athletics is hard to
say. To some persons It might very well
appear as having a tinge of the professional
about it, not the professional from th
money end, because It stands to reason that
there Is no purse ' and no side bet. but
solely on the ground that it Is so personal
a mutter between the men.
It Is almost ss Harvard snd Tale, after
a baseball scries of three games, should
go on and play a couple more with the
professed object of determining which Is
the better team In a longer series. Again',
Cornell and Columbia might want tode
cide that very close boat race at Pough
keepale more to the satisfaction of the
oarsmen In the two shells, and with that In
view might arrange for another race to
be held on. July 4 or some such date In
connection with some other regatta.
It doesn't look exactly fight, although
It may appeal to both men a a perfectly
proper procedure. If the men are not. tak
ing time away from their studies to carry
out their series of bout the colleges can
not well object, however. But it establishes
a bad precedent and Is of very little real
use. It cannot upset the result of th in
tercollegiate wrestling championship, be
cause Foster Is the title holder.' On that
ground then It is a foolish procedure and
on any other It falls short of the purpose
of having meetings In athletlo sport be
tween college men. j
Cornell Will Not Compete.
It must have come rather aa a surprise
to the American Olympic committee to
learn that Cornell did not Intend contrib
uting to the fund for the Olympic games
In London. The expectation waa that the
Ithacana would give 1600. a some other
universities had promised. The reason
given for refusing la one to which no ex
ception could well be taken. "The athletlo
association would not be justified," said
Judge Irvine, "In spending money for a
purpose entirely foreign to the principles
of the corporation. The Olympic games are
not a college event and Cornell men could
not compete a representatives of Cornell,
but a Individuals If they should go." Cor
nell did not want to appear "mean" In th
matter, especially as Dartsmouth, a much
smaller college, pledged $00 for th fund,
but the expense of athletic management
at (Cornell ar much greater.
There are more team at Cornell and
more of them which have small Incomes
or actual deficits. Dartsmouth,- for In
stance, does not support a crew, an Item of
$10,000 or so m the Cornell budget Th
track team at Cornell always ar run at a
loss, and base ball can hardly make a great
profit In other words, about all th sport
exist at tha expense of the foot ball team,
and Cornell' game bring In about enough
to keep things running well.

"The object of this article la to remind
the students of their responsibility In this
matter; maintaining quiet after 10 o'clock
not only in tbe dormitories where the ath
letes live, but also in the streets nearby.
It Is never 111 will that causes a disturbance
at night, but 'thoughtlessness pure and
simple. A thoughtless noise, however, is
Just as effective a an 111 willed noise in
keeping a man awake; and as sleep is of
such vital importance to the teams, we ask
every man to make a point of keeping quiet
himself, and second, of reminding any one
else, stranger or friend, who may need the
hint, of the necessity of quiet for tbe sake
of the teama."
There la a deal of philosophy in that note,
brief as It Is, because from It may be
learned the deleterious effects of noise,

The athletic council at Pennsylvania has
awarded the 'varsity letter to the meinbers
of the basket ball team which won the
champlons'ip of the Intercollegiate Basket
Ball league this season. Tha men to re
ceive the P are Captain-elect Kelnath, Cap
tain Fitspatrick,. McNIchol, Spoe.r, McCrud
den and Klefaber. Waite and Yerger. who
won Individual wrestling championships,
also got the letter. At Syracuse the 'var
sity letter was given to the basket ball
players, bringing up a curious situation.
In the squad were two freshmen who have
the right to . wear the letter now.
They are the' only members of the class of
lWl at Syracuse who will get the letter this
yesr, because of the rule which bars fresh
men from 'varsity major sports. Basket
ball Is a minor sport and was excepted from
the rule. It is understood tnst there Is
some feeling at Syracuse about this award,
because it grants to these two freshmen
special privileges which otherwise they
could not have.
