In Omaha yesterday ' to spend Christmas
with his family here. Crawford la enthus
iastic over the Cuban trip the Detroit

Accordinc to Crawford, the aiaie of the
sua and the beat tn the islands has a exeat
deal to do with the Users dropping so
many games to tbe Cuban players, but be
!e willing to give them all the cred:t that
they deserve. The teams there are last
aad play real ball, be declares, although
there are not as bl ball players as can be
found tn tbe big American ball clubs.
One of the strong points about the Cuban
teams la their batting and pitching. Un
general fleld.ng the American players beat
thr.-n but a good pitcher and good bitters
at to be found. In the last rarne there, he
dec'.area. the Cubans got a real sample of
what. the Tigers could do fn the way of
hi til eg In a game. Sixteen hits were made,
and twelve of there turned Into rtina. Craw,
ford, Cobb and Mullin each pounding out
triples to bring the scores home.
Crawford, a ho casne from Wahoo. Neh.,
t ret played ball tn Independent teams
around Oruaba. From here he, went to the
Canadian league and then Jumped the next
year Into tbe big leagues, lie is one of
the natural batters of base halt rarely
sending out a bunt, but eflr-n a two and
three-bagger and an occaetori&l borne run.
W&ea batters like Cobb can bunt unj yet
on a base, Crawford la the ready man wfn
the seek to put out a hot one to bring the

LINCOLN. Neb.. Dee 24 (Special -Manager
Earl O. Iger will revise the
basket ball schedule prepared for the Corn
huvkera by Dr. R. G. Clapp. the Nebraska
delegate to the Des Moines conference,
and Coach Field. Eager was not at alt
satisfied with the arrangements made by
the secretary of the athletlo board and
He has written to the other members of
the league cancelling the original dates
made at the meeting In Des Molnea and
has prepared a new list. The new dates
nave not been accepted by all of the mem
bers cf tbe conference, but Eager antici
pates no trouble In rearranging his
schedule. The athletic manager would
give no reason for changing the schedule.
He said that he did not like the arrange
ment of the trip during which Nebraska
meets Kansas and Missouri, but would
not state hia objections to the onslnal
The change will not lengthen the sea
son any, but will simply mean that the
Cornhuskers will play conference teams at
different dates thsn originally decided
Ae he Is still waiting for replies from
some of the conference members. Man
ager Eager la not prepared to make pub
lic the schedule as be has arranged It.
To relieve Itself of tbe numerous re
quests for additional expenditures of
money, the athletic board has decided to
abolish the annual report of the manager, ,
usually presented on the first of the new
year. Instead Eager will submit his re
port at the close of the school year. In
speakinr of the matter, the secretary aald
that members of the board were recipients
of numerous letters asking tor an addi

This much haa been made public by one
member of the board. Manager Eager- had
outlined: - the financial situation at the
meeting last Monday. The saccess ef tbe
1919 team In foot ball has again plaoed the
treasury where the members of the board
do not need to worry. There la a surplus
of approximately 17.000 in the treasury, but
this will be reduced, as none of the other
three branches of sport at Nebraska has
proved a financial success. Base ball al
ways results tc a heavy loss,- while the
track and field meets have rarely paid out.
Basket ball la popular with the students
and will probably run even with the sea
son. The receipts for. the Thanksgiving day
game were the heaviest in the history of
the game at Nebraska. - according to a
member of tbe board. The sale of season
tickets also exceeded the expectations of
Members of the board were pleased to
note the success which the fight against
tbe summer base ball rule la meeting. It
would not be a surprise to see the confer

which prohibits tho placing of summer
base ba!L If Missouri and Kansas wants
the support of the Cornhuskers In revok
ing the rule prohibiting Thanksgiving- day
games and recommending such an art ion
to ths board of regents, they must take a
stand against the debarring of all athletes)
who have played summer base ball.
The Instructions to the Nebraska delegate
means that the Cornhuskers will wage a
j hard fight against the rule. Dr. Clapp. who
is tne aeierate. ts not altogether In sym
pathy with the at and taken by the other
members of the board.
- Hla tnstructiona bind him to vote against
th rule prohibiting summer base ball and
If he Is unsuccessful in securing the abol
ishment of the rule, then he is to favor the
elimination of base ball as ons of the
branches of collegiate sport.
Header's Friends Bssy,
The coachshlp problem Is still uppermost
In the minds of all unlversify men and will
probably remain unsettled for many weeks.
The alumni are now awake and members
of the athletic board are being flooded
with lettera from old associates of the
greatest halfback Nebraska ever ha1
Johnny Bender. Bender haa a Strong fol
lowing; among the alumni who recall his
brilliant feats on the gridiron and mora
recently hia success as a coach.
Nine-tenths of the alumni wbo have ex
pressed opinions on the subject favor the
selection of Bender or an eastern man.
Those on the Inside believe that It will be
Impossible to secure an eastern man is
come to Nebrnrka. The board of reg-enta
la restricted in paying a coach to not to
exceed tX&JO. It Is pointed out that few
eastern men of experience would take
charge of the all year Job at any such fig
ure. Members of the board state that -Mr-Gevem
or Steffen, who are being looked
upon with a great deal of favor by the
undergraduate body cannot be secured for
Ies than a year and it may require
It.ot-o to bring them here- Members of the
faculty would not view with favor the
selection of a coach at nearly double the
figure which they themselves receive.
The possible settlement of the coach
problem lies In the selerilon of Coach Clev
enger of Weslyan. (ievenger has cot
formally presented hla application to the
board, but the Wesieyan director la one
of the wiliest In the game and II a graduate
of Indiana during the balmiest foot ball
days of the Hooa.er school. Clevenger Is
a great player himself, and a man who
has had experience both under U e old and
