Manager Eager announced todsy that he
had scheduled two base ball games with
the University of Kansas nine to be played
In Lincoln in May. Kansas was here last
spring and was defeated In one game,
'ihe second contest was postponed on ac
count of rain.
Negotiations are being carried on for
two games with Missouri to be pulled off
here, either In April or May. Iowa and
Ames will also probably come to Lincoln.
The Nebraska track schedule, according
to present plans, will Include dual meets
with Kansas and Minnesota and the Mis

schools at Des Moines. Kansas has con
sented to meet the Cornhuskers on the
cinder path and the Nebraska team will
be sent to Lawrence In May.
For some time It looked as though the
two schools would sever track athletic rela
tions, because of a dispute over last year's
meet. Nebraska won the contest by one
point, but the Jayhawkers would not ad
mit that the points wee- awarded fairly,
and they declared they had won the games.
They still claim the meet and have had
a trophy made, similar to the one for which
the schools contested, and have placed it
In their, room reserved for such things.
They have recorded the meet as won for

Hot Air Lafcan
Bepresentatire from Pennsylvania
Says This of Congressman Hitch
WASHINGTON. Jan. 27. A tilt between
Representatives Hitchcock of Nebraska and
Lafean of Pennsylvania, In the Investiga
tion of the former's charges against tho
administration of the land office, enlivened
Tuesday's hearing before the house com
mittee on expenditures In the Interior de
partment. "It Is quite apparent," said Mr. Lafean,
a member of the committee, after Commis
sioner Dennett of the land office had
given his testimony, "that someone has
been giving out a lot of hot air In this
matter, as these charges seem to be gen
eral In character and based entirely on
rumor. It seems to me we should deal
charitably with the matter."
A sharp colloquy ensued, but Chairman
McGutre interposed with the suggestion
that the committee awn It an executive ses
sion before framing conclusions.
Commissioner Dennett testified that when
Secretary Balllnger was appointed commis
sioner of the general land office he stipu
lated that there should be an executive
order to permit him to have the selection
of a private secretary This was done and
he appointed Jack Balllnger without re
striction of the civil service rules.
Mr. Dennett said he did not believe that
young Balllnger, when he lert for the coast,
wculd retire from the government service.
When he got out to the coast he completed
Ms assignment, took,, ft "vacation, during
which he made up his mind to resign, and
received no return travel allowance.
That Judge Wright, an employe, was
demoted for any reason except feebleness
that prevented him from doing sufficient

gave Wright a month's salary when Wright
was on his death bed. The hearing; will be

other country In the world."
This startling statement was made to
night by James Wilson, secretary of agri
culture, in an address delivered before the
Manufacturers' club of this city. Secre
tary Wilson discussed "the present food
crisis" In a way that was original and
forceful. "Some people," he said, "tell u
that if we repeal the present tariff law
to let in foreign products free of duty
the present difficulty will ci-ase. I do
not believe It. Eggs are 36 cents a dozen
In Canadian cities and GO o-n's a dosen
in some American cities. The duty Is 3
cents a dozen. What difference would It
make If you took off that 3 cents or not 7"
The secretary further stated that he be
lieved the American people are sjffering
not so much at present from tlm high
cost of living as from the cost of high
living, his statements being:
"It has been said that an American Is
the best fed, best clothed, best educated
and best housed man upon earth. We
shall have to add now that he Is the most
Secretary Wilson pointed out that tho
fundamental difficulty was that the peo
ple are leaving the farms to such an ex
tent that there are not enough remaining
to produce the food of the Increasing pop
ulation. The boys and girls' of the farm,
he asserted, are being lured away to the
cities to the factories and to the mines
and to too great extent the agricultural
resources of the country are being neg
lected. He said that he was convinced
that the combinations of retailers, whole
salers and the like were responsible In
great measure for keeping up of prices and
that that same influence would be suffi
cient to control the prices of products
brought from other countries, even though
the tariff w re removed.
"The education of the former, however,
has been overlooked," he said.
"Manufacturing industries have built up
cities, towns and villages, but the growth
of knowledge of the soil, of the plant and I
the animal has not been fostered. The !
young farmer has been educated away
from the farm and from the production
of food for the people. The school, the
college and the university, which admir
ably , prepare young men and women for
their life work In all other directions, have
forgotten the farmer."
COAL MINERS WAY STRIKE
Workers In Bituminous District Will
Demand General Ad
vance. INDIANAPOLIS, Jan. 27. "Stand or fall
tog-ether!" That was the sentiment of the
convention of the United Mine Workers of
America, when It closed discussion of the
prospective strike of the bituminous coal
miners yesterday. The resolution will not
be formulated definitely until the wage
scale committee reports.
In the speeches of the unions officials It
was declared that the bituminous miners
are determined to demand an Increase of
wages of W per cent or more, that no one
district organisation shall sign the uniform
wage contract till all districts shall sign
and if a strike Is Inevitable In one -or
more districts, all shall strike.
The baslo contract for the whole coun
try Is to be negotiated next week at Toledo,
though specifically the conference between
operators' and miners' representatives is to
adjust the differences only of western
Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana. The
present contract In these three states ex
pires March 31. Several delegates from
other districts advocated In the convention
today that the whole delegated body should
go to Toledo for the conference, since Its
conclusions will pattern the contract to be
signed In all districts if a contract Is Blgned
National President Lewis, President Mc
Donald of the Illinois district and other
leaders urged upon the convention unity
of purpose and action. If the miners make
a uniform demand for an Increase In wages.
and all throw down their tools at once,
If the operators in any districts refused
to yield, the nonunion miners of West Vir
ginia and other fields, now hard pressed
by the higher cost of living and lower
earnings, probably could be rallied to the
standard of the United Mine Workers" of
America, said the speakers.
The delegates from the nine locals In
central Pennsylvania, over whose status
there was a long wrangle yesterday, were
refused seats by a vote of 1,327 to 1,009.
The convention voted $1,000 to the striking
garment makers of St. Louis, $2,000 to the
strikers of iron, steel and tin workers, and
$1,000 to ths Swttchmens' union.
