IOWA CITT. la., April .-48pecla! )-
Though the State Board of Education has
i abandoned the securing of an 'athletic di-
r-ctor for the University of Iowa because
of laclt of funds, local authorities, encour
aged by the finance committee of the
board, are still considering plans for per
fecting a directorate next year and putting
the athletic on a satisfactory bej-is.
So official announcement haa been made,
but it is believed that funds can be secured
from the local board to partially pay tne
first year's salary providing financial as
sistance la in sight from the state later on.
However, the outcome from a dollar and
onts standpoint of the spring' athletica
will largely decide the policy of the local
board in control of athletic.
Athletics heie have made money. In the
last three years and the board haa been
able to help pay for, the construction of
cement bleachers on Iowa field. - Thi

In establishing the directorate more feasi
ble, in consideration of the. fact thst the
State Board of Education haa not . the
money sufficient to hire a high-class man
for next year. .
The showing of Lh Iowa athletes in the
Omaha meet pleased the atudent and
hopes were expressed that the university
would be represented by one of the best
snd most evenly balanced trsck squads in
the middle west this season. However, the
optimism was soon counteracted by. rumors
concerning the eligibility of several of tne
men who "did things" at Omaha, and. the
prediction for till spring are more uncer
tain than ever. Xot much waa said openly
regarding the latest report concerning the

UNCO LX. April . (Special Telegram.)
The University or Nebraska Athletic board
last night took the first step Irf Its plan to
have the anti-summer base ball rule of the
Missouri conference abolwhed and refused
to make a statement declaring the mem
bers of the Cornhu-fker nln to be eligible
under Clause A of the rule of the "Big
Seven" eligibility code. In a telegram sent
to the Universities of Kansas and Manhat
tan, whose teams the Nebraska nine is
scheduled to play next week, th Corn
hunker board practically admitted that he
members of the local nine are ineligible
under the summer base ball rule.
According to the rules of the conference
each school must sign a statement regard
ing the eligibility of it athletes before
every contest with another university. Th
Nebraska team is booked to play Manhat
tan and Kansas next week. The Corn-hu-iker
board met this evening to pass on
the qualifications of the men on the local
Coach Carroll told the members of the
board that he knew practically all the men
on his squad had played semi-professional
ball and that they were Ineligible under the
anti-summer ball rule of the conference.
Certain members of the board had evidence
to this same effect. -The question was
then raised whether the board should sign
a statement saying these' were eligible un
der the rule. It was the opinion of the
board that Nebraska should refuse to make
any false statement regarding Its players,
but should tell the truth and then let the
other colleges play the Cornhuskers or not
In accordance with this sentiment the
board voted to' send ' the following; tele
gram to Kansas and Manhattan:
"We- believe the members cf the Ne
braska base ball team are as eligible as
any Nebraska team of past years or any
team In tbe conference. We do not believe,
however, that It is eligible under the anti
summer bee ball rule and we refuse to
f sign any statement saying that It I. Will
you play games scheduled for next weekT"
If Kansas Insists thst the Cornhuskers
make a statement regarding its men the
trip planned for next week 'will be can
celled. The rule which makea the Cornhuaker
players Ineligible for college base ball is
I the following:
"No student will be given permission to
play on a professional team or a seml-pro-fesstonal.
It Is understood that , acml
profeaalonal team Is on on which any
player received remuneration for his serv
ice." At this meeting of the board Manager
Bager waa re-elected graduate manager
of university athletics foe another year.

LINCOLN. April S.-tSpecial.)-On tl.i
eve of Ita annual southern trip the Ne
braska base ball team In threatened with
the loss ef five of Its players who cam a
through the mid-semester examinations
with the delinquency tag attached to their
names, and It bglns to look ss though th
prospects of defeating Kansaa next week
will' be depleted before the Cornhuskers
are ready to emerge from their stronghold
and start toward Jayhawkervllle.
Four of the five men who failed to gat
through ' with twelve hours lo their cre
dit are pitchers, players whom the coarh
hsd planned In using on the southern" tour.
The fifth man Is a star fielder. The delin
quency among the pitcher has practically
killed any chances' the Cornhuskers might
hare had of winning the games on Its trip,
and the only hope of making a good show
ing next week I that the pitchers or at
least two of them will be able to satisfy
the eligibility that their work Is in proper
condition. To do thst act means that the
men wilt have to' make up the work in
which they are delinquent and pass exam
inations ' In the subjects in which they
It was announced today that the delin
quency In' three,' or four cases of the five
men was excusable oa the ground that the
players had either been sick or had simply
failed to do a little note-book work thst
was required In the particular courses la
which they failed. If. such Is really the
true status, the greater share ot the con
ditioned men will be able to get their stud
ies into shspe to command a credit of
twelve hours from tha registrar's . off Ice.
Mathers' Wer It . la . lata.
Only ens member 'of the twirling staff
pulled through the examteautlons with
twelve hours. He Is Mathers, who was the
star slab artist on the varsity last spring
and who seems to be delivering more than
his share of the gilt-edged goods this sea
son. . The report . received from the reajU
trarfis office shows that Storms, Frank.
Adams aad Olmstead had been selected t
do. the twirling on 'the southern trip, but
now that they lack sufficient credits to
make them eligible It is extremely doubt
ful whom the coaches will pick for the
There really is no other group ef pitch
ers In the university from which Coach
Carroll can draw material for this southern
trip and unless two of the present de
linquents get up their studies the. Corn
huskers will have to send a team en the
trip with' but two men on th twirling
staff. . .
In the outfield . the situation . was de
plorable enough when it was thought
Sleughtsr,' the fifth delinquent, would be
eligible for the team, and now thst he has
been pieced under a ban by the faculty the
whole proposition of getting a strong trio
for the outer garden ha' been given a
deep blue' coloring. Slaughter, Ttatcllffe
and Hturtexnegger - had practically been
Chosen to do the playing in the outfield
nd It was figured that Sleughter would
be th strong man of the triumvirate. He
.plsy s a brilliant gams in the field and is
a fairly good batter. The two other field
ers plsy nearly as good ball as 81eughtr
and with him on th eligible list the Corn
huskers would , have had. a pretty strong
outer gsrden. If Sleughter's condition is
not removed before next Wednesday
Coach Carroll will be up against th prob
lem of getting another man for left field.
Mea, Selected far Teas. '
After tha gams with the Lincoln West
ern lesgue club on Monday of this week
Coach "Bobby" Carroll had about made
up his mind a to which men would be
given place on the cornhuaker team for
thia year. The failurea at the mldssmes
ters have upset Ms plana, but If th play
ers who are not possessed of twelve hour
credit can get their little affair fixed up
with the faculty before next Wedneaday
the coach will probably take the following
men as his lineup for the eouthern trip:
Captain Oreensttt, catcher; Clarke, first
base; Water, second base; Metcalfe, short
stop; Lcfgren or Cummings, third base;
Sleughter, left fitld; Ratcllffe, center field;.
St unesnegger, right field; Mathers. Adams,
Frank and Olmslead, pitchers. This line-up
Is contingent tn the action, of the delin
quent men In making up their back work.
It is noticed In the foregoing line-up that
none of the Infield baaemen are delinquent
in their work and all of them are certain of
their sacks, excepting Ltvfgren and Cum
mings at third. .In the - game with' the
leeguera Cummings did not show up as
well aa had been exported. LofgTen played
a good gutne at that at-k while he wis
tatlor.ed there. Th younsrs'era wer play.
Ing the first game with the varsity, though,
and they wer Jut a little bit rattled In
trying to make good with the learn The
game wa hardly a fair teat of tha r
ability and Coarh Carroll will not tusk
a t'holc between them until they have bom
had another trial at the Job. This chance
will be n en them next Tuesday whan th
leaguer will be play ed a aet ood gtrae at
Antelope park. ,
