As an outgrowth of It. a rule may be passed making It- compulsory for a major league club to secure waivers from every other team In both big leagues before let ting eut a player to the minors. The pres ent law provides that an athlete who has been under contract t' ,a major leugut bunch or more than on.' year can be let out If waiver are obtained from all clubt In hla league. In the case of a player drafted or puichaaed within a year waivers must bo asked for and obtained from both major leagues. President Comlskey ,f ; the Sox, who would not have been opposed to landing Howard, brought up the point yesterday 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 n oases oi isDeu ana Uavls, whom 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. Commy thought this over a while and then suggested that a club of the American league should .not W required to get waivers from the other fifteen clubs If it Intended to release a man unconditionally. If. on the writer hand,,lt cttitended to send him to some minor league team, It should be compelled to get waivers from every body In both major organisations. This 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. ll will be remembered that Issy 'and George were let out without being tied to any club. Therefore, both of them were at liberty to sign anywhere they wanted to. with another . major league-club If they wanted thm,ln case, of Howard, Dei: myst play at Louisville or not at all, unless he cai get A4y frWH tb American asso ciation club.'.') , : WHITE SOX JFLOCK WESTWARD tblenaro American Players Co Through Omaha tyatarday la Spe. ,. elal Train. to Pacific, Coast.

Will the state Board of F.ducatlon, con trolling the State university, the AgrN cultural college and the State Teachers' collre. ahollHh foot ball and other forms of Interrnlletilme athletic competition at Ite March meeting? This question his sprung Into the minds of alumni here and almost universally the question has been answered In the sfrim atlve. for the mrength of James H. Trewln hf Ceditr Rsplrts, chairman of the hoard, is readily recf.anlred In this city. Mis dec laration at the Isw building derl'.rstion bnn ouet Is the foreword of probable action next month. The declaration of Mr. Trewln agtlnst Intercollegiate contests on the athletic fl d ranie as a bolt out of a clear sky Tuesrtny evenjni?. The university public was Ktunnii. It was with difficulty that the alumni and students present grasped the significance of the opinions stated so forc ibly 'by the former wtate senator. Yesterday there was one subject of con versation unions: the student. Naturally the rank and file were extremely Indig nant over the prospects of losing foot ball and other forms of athletic contests with sinter Institutions. (Irariual)y It dawned on the undergraduates that Jowa would Ins' Its inemberehtp in the Chnagn confer ence and In the Missouri Valley conferem-e and that It would become a -nonentity In the athletic world. . Opinions among faculty members were few and far between, thnss nppoeed to the probable outcome naturally refusing to dif fer with the authorities . which pay Infclr S'arls Must of the profess. ,-s, it is be lieved, favor the happy medium, where the ptesent abnormal development of special ized tenms Is decreased and the Intra-col-letr athletics are Increased. There are those among the citizens, students and faculty members who believe that the athietirs will not be disturbed lv the new bnsrd and that the foot ball sched ule next -fall wlll.be played as usual. Thev state that even If the new board eliminates Intcr-oollertate athletic contests It will not do so until after the next legislature. The entire athletic Interests of the state are watchlne; the next move of the State Board of Education.

IV Q. Clupp announced yesterday that he would start the latter part of this week 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 their ability. 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 Manager Eager 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 make to the commission is that I put prac tically all 1 had Into a private enterprise In this city and had to remain here. to look after It. When the management of the Chicago club realised my situation I was given an Indefinite leave of absence." CHICAGO, Feb. 21 President Murphy re fused 'to make any statement' concerning the Kllng case. DES MOI. ICS TO Ye. DTRACK TEAM ... iu . ' .

The Lawrence team still has to meet the winners of the title in the northern section before it can have a clear claim to the conference honors. Then, It has two games to play with the Corn huskers In Lincoln this week, and there la a slight feeling among local students that the local five will surprise their old oppon ents in those two contests.

Interest In the game with Kansas this week la the greatest It has ever been here oer a basket ball series. A friendly feeling of rivalry against the Jayhawkers is in tense, and the student are clamoring for the Cornhuskers to win so as to compensate in some degree for the defeat of the Ne braska foot ball team during the last two years.
