TUB only loud noise along the
Western circuit of lata wair the
news of Dear Ducky Holmea' re
turn, painful as It was noisy.
Ducky Is again to be manager of
Eloux City, as tho prints havo already
stated. That displaces Babe Towne, show
ing what a big movement It la, for Babe
is some big:. Holmes has had some- hard
luck runs since letting go of the Sioux
a couple of years ago. His escapade at
Mobile was a complete failure and that
is tho biggest thing he had tackled. The
only reason why fans on this, circuit
do not exult aver Ducky's return la that
he has always been a hard man to get
on with, but at the same time he Is a
kaso ball man, with a Ions career as a
major league player for a background.
He Is a good fighter and will undoubtedly
put Sioux City back on tho ' Western
league map. from which, however, It has
.not been absent any great length of time.
George Huff, who as a scout for tho
Cnbs, unearthed some of the mort famous
players of that famoua team, has quit
Murphy and gone to work for Cleveland
at what Is reported to be tho Mshe.it
(alary ever paid a scout. There can never
be any discounting Huff as a finder and
Setter of new material. Ho is there.
that's all, and when he gets on the t: ail
of a man he wants the man might as well
surrender, as Ruelbach can testify. A
Half dozen different names will not rave
him. The Cubs are trying to get Billy
Hamilton, the old-time player, aa Huff's
successor. He ought to be a good one.
Boston National have first claim on
him, though. A scout Is an Important
poke in the wheel of a base ball machine
Pa Rourko already has larded three
promising young players for next year in
Pitchers Vavlt and Loudel of Minneapo
lis and Catcher Beckendorf of Cleveland
and he Is, of course, still on the trail.
Laying aside all boost talk, your pa is
down to the brass-tack determination
of landing a team In 1912 that will win the
pennant. Nothing has done mere to in
spire this determination than the two dis
appointments ho has encounte: ed in the
last two seasons. In 1910 he began with
what looked like a winning team, and
some of the men who were first to go to
pieces have since made good In faster
company, Shottcn for one. But all that Is
In the past, eyes and hopes now center on
Murray's fall down In the world's
series proves hla downfall in New
York, for he Is to go to Boston for Mike
Donlin, with a few thousand thrown
in by McGraw. At least, that is the report.
Home thpre be who still adhere to the
notion that Muggsy never really let go
of Handsome Mike, except to help out
Boston and find whether or not the
thesplan could come back. Seeing he can,
McGraw bags him. It will seem like old
times to have this rantankerous Giant out
in the garden again. Now, let the fans
KO to speculating on whether the Giants
would have beat the Athletics had they
had Mike. It will make a good winter
The case of George Stovall la a queer
one. He goes In and managea Cleveland
and the team lands higher than It has
for years, but Harry Livls having al
ready been engaged to run the team,
tltoval limes his Job. Then It appears
three teams seek him, now he Is out and
apparently unsought by any. Bomers of
Cleveland, anxious to land him a good
berth, la trying to get waivers on him
to make him manager of Toledo, whose
control has panned from Armour to Bom
ers. This la a case of a man being pena
lised for making good.
Connie Mack haa done a handsome thing
in making Danny Murphy captain of the
Athletics to succeed Harry Davla. Danny
lias been a grand old spoke In that grand
,ld wheel t 'T many years, having starred
In tho Infield as well as the out and he
is there yet. as Ma work In the recent
world's series proved. He can lead the
way and that la what la wanted.
The veneral Walter Camp used to in
dulge the hallucination that no western
foot ball team could ever defeat an east
erner. Since the recent Chicago-Cornell
and Michigan-Pennsylvania games, hi.
doubtless Is not sj Indulgent. 1'robably
the west might triumph much more If
given the opportun tv.
The rulo of reducing the number of
players a team may carry la nothing new
and If It la nut enforced any better than
similar rules have been, It might us well
have been omitted.
Another old time favorite, Jake Btafcl

from the fans everywhere.

The cross-country squad of the high
school will put In Its final practice this
week for Its annual run with the Council
Bluffs team, which will be held as a
preliminary stunt to the game between the
local high school warriors and the Wen
dell Phllilpa High school eleven of Chi

strengthened this week by the return of
two star runners to the squad. Halleck

relay runner, haa Joined the squad end la

HASTINGS, Neb.. Nov. 25.-(Speelal.)
The rport that Wesleyan university majr .

here have considered taking ths Initiative .
In this direction.

of the supporters of athletics at Hosting
"Spies were sent here befor th gams

standing of th men on th team. ThlJ
Is a practice not resorted to In any re
spectablo institution in the country. Wes
leyan would not consent to officials of
experience and th work of some of thoso
Ulectea disgusted everybody. For proof
of this assertion we refer to any out- '
elder who witnessed th game, and par-
tlcularly to the newspaper accounts pub.
Ilshad at Lincoln.
"Wesleysn's two touchdowns wer both ,
nuke, th first th result of a deflected
punt on Hastings' thirty-yard line and
th second an interrupted pass In the last
few minutes of play, Th first would
hav been Impoislbl If it had not been
for a glaring foul on Marvel of Hastings,
with ths field Judge not mors than five'
yards away. This foul was so gross that
outsiders on the side lines called to ths
field Judge for a penalty. At ths end of
th third qusrter Hastings had th ball
on Wesleysn's one yard line, third down.
When the ball was taken to the other end
of the field It was given to Wesleysn.
W again refer to th newspaper accounts
for proof of this.
"Hastings outplayed Wesleyan and
should have won. They made on touch
down and carried th ball twlcs to Wes
leysn's one-yard line, wher It was' once
unjustly taken away from them. Wes
leyan could not hav scored excepting on' '
"Schllck of Hastings was not In th

technicality to his registration. Johnson, '

count of Injuries. With ths full team on "
