Jt Han been several years since the t'orn
liurkers have been aw weak In the field
events as they are this season. In the six
field names there, does not nppear to be a

Kansas In these events.
Close to 200 high school athlete will com

of the claims made by Omaha and Lincoln
and has written to Pr. Clapp of the State

Lincoln lads, since the encounter at York
last week, are willing to admit that the
athletes from the smaller town will have
a good chance of taking the leading honors I
home to Tork.

The revised schedule of the Nebraska
base ball team, which was made out aFter
Iowa and Minnesota refused to play the
Coi'nhuskers unless the locals were certi
fied as to the summer base ball proposi
tion, calls for games with Ames, Monday;
Grlnnell, Tuesday; Highland Tark,
Wednesday; Cornell, Thursday, and South
The Cornhuskers were at Ames yester
day, where they played the Aggies in the
opening game of the trip. Ames Is the
only conference school that would play
the Cornhuskers without the latter being
certified under the conference's amateur
clause. In taking the Nebraska men on
for' these games while this fight has been
going on, the Ames authorities have won
a warm spot In the hearts of the Nebraska
students and athletic authorities. T?y this
action they have shown that fhey will
stand with Nebraska, and now Nebrasika
means to reciprocate by doing Ames a
jood turn at the first opportunity.

shades of night Denver and Sioux City
were compelled to quit without a winner

Manager Hendricks of Denver was ordered
off the grounds when he protested the
stopping because of rain and Manager
Towne and Shortstop Qulllon of Sioux City

at third base. Later Pitcher Alderman was
also chased to the outside for protesting

ing a ball to Olmsted's feet and it bounded

BLUFFS ' SENIORS MGII MEN
Track Meet Held Under Most Dis
SOPHOMORES COME IN SECOND
Juulora Trail In ' Third Place,
While Freshmen Get Last -Dnat
The seniors carried off the high honors
with 76 out of a possible 144 points at the
seventeenth annual Interclass field meet
of the Council Bluffs High school Fri
day afternoon, while the sophomores
came second with 30V4 points, the Juniors
third with 25 points and the freshmen
fourth with 12H points.
Individual honors were divided between
Edward Bauer and E. Cupel of the seniors
and H. Friedman of the sophomores, each
of whom won three firsts, thus scoring
15 point saplece. F. Bates of the Juniors,
was close up to them however, as he had
one first, a tie first, two seconds and one
third to his credit, making a total of 14
points. V. Lnndon of the seniors, won two
firsts and two thirds making a total of 12
points. L. Swanson of the seniors, was
credited with one first, one second and
one third, making a total of points. B.
Wilcox of the sophomores, scored 9 points
by winning three seoond places.
The conditions were anything but fa
vorable and consequently no records were
smashed. There was a strong wind blow
ing, which whirled the dust off the newly
graded track at Broadway and Twenty
fifth street in clouds about the contest
ants and the spectators alike. The dust
played no favorites and everyone got his
or her share of the flying real estate.
Eaclosed Track Needed.
The grounds are not enclosed and con
sequently there waa no way of keeping
kids or grownups without tickets from
mingling with those Who had paid their
entrance fee. The officials were also
powerless to keep the crowd off the track.
Despite these drawbacks the afternoons
program furnished some good sport and
Principal Reed of the high school on whose
shoulders fell most of the burden of the
arrangements Is to be congratulated for
the success of the field meet under such
disadvantageous conditions. The meet yes
terday afternoon demonstrated the need
of a permanent field and track for the
use of the high school.

FOOT BALL FANS REJOICE
Iowa Students Gladdened by Aotion of
Kansas City Conference.
DUAL MEET NEXT SATURDAY
Official Dopesters Are Anxiously
Avraltlnar First Showing- Made
by the Track and Field
IOWA CITY, la., April f3.-(SpecJal.)-
Slghai of relief featured the athletic week
In Iowa when It was announced that foot
ball had been saved to the Missouri Valley
conference until next December. Iowa,
Ames and Drake feared the action of the
southern membors of the conference, and
hen the critical point was passed at the
Kansas City meeting the students were
thankful that the Kansas regents' view
had not prevailed.
Now when the nw rules are announced.
In ten days the 'Hate's schools will or
ganise the sptirg- foot ball squads and
start to work out new plays, safe and se
cure In the action taken by the authorities
this week. If the proposals, aa suggested,
are adopted, and the changes In the rules
are radical In their charaoter. It is certain
that much Interest will be taken In the
spring practice by the leading schools on
Class meets at Grlnnell, relay races at
Drake, Intercollegiate base ball games
hold the attention of athletic Interests
today. Next Saturday the dual meets
begin and then the "dopesters" will have
their first opportunity to really Judge the
ability of the various track squads In the
state. 80 far the home events have In
dicated little, and In the University of
Iowa the situation la so far In the air be
cause of uncertainty regarding the eligibil
ity of certain athletes that Coach "Sphinx"
Delaney has become more "sphinxlike"
than ever. The date of the home meet
here is still undecided.
Alderman In Training:.
It Is known that Delaney desires that
Alderman go after the weight records In
the home event, and he does not want to
run It off until the star Is In shape. It Is
said to be the coach's ambition to have
Alderman throw the hammer aa many feet
as there are pounds In his body. The
giant haa reached the 159-foot mark in
practice, but his weight Is still between
16S and 170. Delaney will specialize Alder
man In the hammer and discus Instead of
the Bhot, though he will enter him 'n
Hartupee, the East Des Moines High
school pole vaulter, la reporting to De
laney as regularly as his work In the col
lege of applied science will permit With
a new form Delaney expects Hartupee to
reach ten feet, six Inches, and possibly
eleven feet before the middle of next
month. This will strengthen the Hawk
eyes In an unexpected quarter.
The makeup of Delaney's new "Ellglbll,
Ity club" Is still more of less of a mys
tery. The membership will probably be
announced by the eccentric coach within a
week because of the nearnoas of the dual
Meet at Grlnnell.
Mornlngslde college of Sioux City will
enter a team In the state meet for secon
dary schools to be held at Grlnnell on
May 21. This1 school expects to push Grln
nell closely for first honors. It Is probable
that Iowa, Amea ' and Drake will not be
entered In this meet.
Allan, Bcrkstreseer and Chapman form
the trio which Is the nucleus of the Morn
lngslde track team. They will be eligible
for the Grlnnell state meet, though not for
the Missouri Valley conference event to bo
held a week later In Des Moines. Hick
man, another good distance man; Fearing,
a pole vaulter; Belt, high Jumper; Ven
nluk and Colllver In the weights, and
Quartet rom and Montgomery In the dashes
complete the list.
FREDDIE WELSH IS CONFIDENT
Little Scrapper Sure He Will Defeat
NEW YORK, April 23. Freddie Welsh.
England's lightweight champion. Is so
confident of defeating Packey McFarland
of Chicago at the National Sporting Club
of London on the night of May 30 that be
has announced his Intention of meeting
Young Josephs, the British welterweight
champion, In a bout for the latter's title.
Aa a matter of fact, Welsh has already
laid claim to the welterweight title, for the
reason that he whipped Josephs In eleven
rounds at Mountain Ash In Wales last
July. Josephs was not the welterweight
champion at that time, and besides, Welsh
won on a foul. Since then Josephs has
beaten the recognised title holder, while
Welsh has secured clear right to be called
lightweight champion, having received
Lord Lonsdale's belt.
Welsh's plan to fight Josephs may be
the result of supreme confidence, but In
the opinion of American sporting men on
the other side and hundreds of competent
ring Judges here Freddie will not have
the expected snap with McFarland. In a
letter to a friend In this city McFarland
makes clear the terms of his coming match
with Welsh and says he will beat the Eng
lish champion without extending himself
The articles of agreement stipulate that
neither man shall engage In a boxing con
test for at least twenty-one days preced
ing the date for the big mill. The weight
Is fixed at 133 pounds, scaling at 2 o'clock
In the afternoon. The National Sporting
club hangs up a purse of 17,600, of which
26.000 goes to the winner. A aide bet of
22,000, which has been posted with the club,
will also be paid to the successful pugilist.
This famous club has offered but one
larger purs In the past and that was
when Peter Jackson and Frank P. Slavln
battled for $10,000.
The match has caused no end of excite
ment In Great Britain, and the result will
also be awaited with much Interest on tills
side of the Atlantic
COACHES AGAINST NEW KULES
Spring; Foot Ball Practice Brings
Forth the Critics.
NEW YORK, April 23.-Soveral coaches
of spring foot ball practice at the different
colleges are not exceedingly pleased with
the new foot ball rules, according
to reports from various sources. Cap
tain Daly of Yale waa recently quoted
with a remark to the effect that he hoped
that the rules committee knew what It was
doing, but that he could see no Improve
ment In the game.
Harry M. Wheaton, assistant field coach
of the 1909 Yale team and head coach of
the United States Naval academy team
next fall, gave his opinions on the new
rules In this cltv yesterday. Coaoh Whea
ton had had two weeks' work with a large
squad at Annapolis this spring.
He says that he does not see the ad
vantages In some of the new regulations.
Tho rule forbidding diving tackles has not
been a success at Annapolis. One of the
half backs broke a collarbone In an at
tempt to "body-check" a runner before a
tackle under the new rule eould be made.
Wheuton also finds faults In the sugges
tion tvhlch would cramp the defense In a
narrower lateral lone. He believes that
the object of the suggestion was to encour
age end runs and open play by making line
buck difficult against a thlckmed line.

lie has found that bucks against the tack
les and guards were responsible for long
gains. These gains were aided by the
elimination of the diving tackle.
In regard to the forward pass Wheaton
haa a suggestion, lie thinks that If a rule
were passed providing that a forward pass
across the Una of scrimmage, traveling
more than ten yards beyond the potrit
and handle' under the same rules which
apply to the fair catch of a kicked ball
troubles with the much discussed play
would come to an end.
He gives the following reasons for his
suggestion regarding the play: The forward
passes under such a rule would be short.
Half backs and ends would be tho players
to recover them not far back from this
scrimmage line and a few yards out from
the tackles' position. Knowing that the
pass must go ten yards the defensive quar
ter back and full back could rely on the
fair catch rules and the defensive half
of proper support to linesmen caused by the
dropping back of a halt back on the watch
for a long heave.
Coach Wheaton says that the rule which
prevents driving tackles Is responsible for
more accidents In spring practice than
havo occurred before In the history of the
game. The onslde kick and the four period
game are also disliked by Coach Wheaton.

For the first time in the history of tho
rubber trade the price of the crude or
plantation product has reached 13 a pound
In the London market. Even at that unpre

It Is estimated that 200,000 cars are being
turned out this year, by American makers
alone, and allowing four tires for tho

It will require a million tires to supply

of a tire Is from four months to a year, de

Apparently there are only two ways by
