The Howard case was town talk yester

passed making It- compulsory for a major
league club to secure waivers from every
other team In both big leagues before let

In the presence of Ban Johnson, saying it
waa unfair, both to the player and to the
cluba of the rival leagues, to send any ath
lete to the minora when he could hold
down a job in a big league and draw ,
big league salary. President Johnson, cited

Comlskey recently released, and asked him
why a rule of the kind he had In mind
wouldn't have blocked his plans to re
lease these men and thus have prevented
them from doing as they pleased.

then suggested that a club of the American
league should .not W required to get
waivers from the other fifteen clubs If it

be compelled to get waivers from every

looked like a fair prqppimfoa to Mr. John-i
son, and he said he 'would see what could'
be dona toward creating such a rule.

alumni and students present grasped the
significance of the opinions stated so forc

Yesterday there was one subject of con

the rank and file were extremely Indig

and other forms of athletic contests with
sinter Institutions. (Irariual)y It dawned
on the undergraduates that Jowa would

Clupp announced yesterday that he

the weeding out process among the track
athletes to select a team of fifteen men te
epresent the Cornhuskers at the big track
meet In Omaha on April 1.
The action of th Nebraska Athl-tlc board
In permitting any qualified student to rep
resent the university has resulted In giving
the Nebraska athletic director fully fifty
crack athletes from whom to select a tram
for the Omaha games. This afternoon
nearly that many men were in the gym
nasium working out for the finals. In which
they will have an opportunity to show
By permitting all students lo compete for
the Cornhuskers, the Athletic board made
Hale McDonald eligible. He will be a
strong point man for the Cornhuskers In
the running events. He will have a place
on the relay team, and will enhance Ne
braska's chances of winning that big event,
Nebraska will also be permitted to place
Its two freshmen runners in this meet, and
this fact will almost assure the local scnooi
a place In all the fast sprints. Swanson,
an ineligible freshman, la one of the speed
iest runners the university haa possessed
in several years, and hla presence at the
Omaha contest will mean much to the Corn
huskers In the short dashes.
Nebraska and Ames are now tied for the
championship of the northern half of the
Missouri Valley Basket Ball league. By
defeating Drake Monday night, 12 to 11,
the Aggies made their record equal to that
of the Cornhuskers. A series of three
games will be played between Ames and
Nebraska to determine which of the teams
shall meet Kansas, the winners of the title
in the southern section.
. Manager Eager has written Coach Wil
liams of Ames requesting that the games
be played either In Lincoln or Omaha next
week. It is thought that the Aggie coach
will consent to coming to Nebraska for the
games. If he does, the scries will be booked
for either this city or Omaha,
Keveral letters have come to the local
manager asking that the series be played
Is not yet decided whether h will take the
tames there, though. The Nebraska Ath
letic board does not object, however, and
If Ames expresses a preference for a neutral
floor, the games will go to Omaha. This
much has been decided by the local man
ager. The Cornhusker basket ball players ob
ject to the claim made by the Kansas five
ine only statement I am nrenareri tr

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. K-Now that the

cleared away and numeroua reports of the

the fight have been refuted by Nelson him

for another chance. He insists he was not

Another toplo of sporting conversation to
night was the challenge from Joe Gans,
who lost no time In claiming Wolgast'
attention. The negro asked for a twenty

challenge will produoe result.
Nelson spent the day In the baths. He
left for Chicago last night at I o'clock. He
waa much battered about the face, but

overtrained. On hi ability to "com back"
he said he wa prepared to wager S,0M
