It Is now almost assured that the
Omaha team will open the 1918 season at
home and extensive arrangements are be
ing made for a gala day, when business
will be suspended and schools closed. The
opening festivities are going to eclipse
anything that has ever been put on be

on the first day Omaha plays here. The

going to be greater than ever, owing to
tho caliber of tho 1913 team, which, ac

such that the fans will not want to stay
away from the pork. Those who saw the
Rourkes play ball last year will not heal
tate to agree that it was some base ball

again wear an Omaha uniform and play

With the same team and the experienoe

Next Friday night, February' 14, will
be the big basket ball event In the annals
of the floor game at the University, of
Omaha and will be the most attractive
thing on the program of the local basket
ball season. On that night the Uni
versity of Omaha will meet the much
heralded South Dakota five at the uni
versity gymnasium. The Dakotans ore
fast and It is said that their team, with
the exception of the Portogo, Wis.,
team is tho best that has ever been
scheduled a game in Omaha. Among tha
scintillating northern light are Sheeks and
Imlay, who made such a favorable Im
pression on the sporting public of Omaha
last Thanksgiving day.
Notwithstanding that, they are going
up against a tartar, and the local team
Is hopeful of playing the game of the
BeaMn and of pushing the Coyotes for
every point they secure. After the victory
over Bellevuo Friday night Coach Nagel,
Instead of letting up on the work, began
a course of more strenuous practice than
has been given so far this season. Last
night the team Journeyed to Council
Bluffs to work out against the association
team there. Monday night the second
team of the university will be pitted
against the varsity quintet and on Tues
day the Nebraska Alumni will scrimmage
with the Shetlands.
An Attractive Game.
It Is thought that one of the biggest
crowds vl the season will see the gumn
Friday and as a result tho seating
capacity of the gymnasium Is being
greatly Increased. Warren Ritchie, who
has made a very favorable Impression
as an official In the Trl-Clty league, will
referee. Ritchie, while not permitting any
deliberate fouling or unnecessary rough
play, is not overly strict and allows the
gamo to progress so that It has Interest

the hustling manager of the second basket

and has already two or three good trips
arranged. Thero are several good ball
players who have played on some of tlvi
best of tho local amateur teams. The
captain of the team has not been selected
as yet, hut the prospects are that Al
Adams, catcher for the llaum Iron team
last season, will be elected to lead the
nine. What will be done with track is
still problematical. Thero are two or
three real good track men In the school,
but not enough to make a well balanced
team, so It Is likely that attention wl'l
be centered on baso ball and that th
school will be represented In only a few
events at the state meet.
FOOT. BALL RULES WILL

NEW YORK. Feb. 8. Foot ball rules
are almost sure to get the "rest cure"
this year, according to authoritative
sources. Although tho Intercollegiate
rules committee has arranged for its an

expected that Its fourteen members will

NEW YORK, Feb. 8. A. F. BeotlnBon,
manager of the National Sporting club
of London, which is the most notablo
boxing club of the world, came out
strongly a few days ago, in the course
of a speech delivered at a banquet In his
honor. In favor of an International board
to control the sport. Ills remarks havo
been generally accepted with much favor
In the press and in sporting circles of
England, and it is not unlikely that the
promoters In the latter country will soon
take steps to arrange conferences, such
as the boxing boards of France and tha
United States have had.
The latest agitation has brought out a
long article on tho subject In the London
Dally Mall warmly endorsing the plan,
which seems to be regarded as a necessity
for the preservation of the sport. The
Mall agrees that the New York athletic
commission has done good, work, but
charges 1t with ultra-restrictlveuess. The
writer suggests championship belts for
the various classes to correspond with
the Lord Lonsdale belts In England, the
compelling of world and national cham
pions to defend their titles within cer
tain reasonable periods, and ho makes
several other suggestions that might do
much to put the game on a sounder basis.
The Mall says In part:
In England tho control of amateur
boxing is in perfectly safe hands. It Is
on tho professional side the side from
which the great mass of the public de
rives Its knowledge and Its appetite

Must the Cornhuskers
Clyde Elliott Thinks
Il- CLYDK 13. HI.LIUTT.
From a Minneapolis foot ball writer,
whose respect for Cornhusker uthletloa
has never been too greut, has come the
suggestion that University of Nebraska
foot baltlsts and their supporters bo con
tent with conditions as they are, unci
that they do not try to remedy the de
fects In a coaching system which has
produced at the best 'but mediocre elev
ens during recent years. The philosophical
scribe of tho Milling City's paper Is cer
tain that the Cornhuskers have no
more chance of licking the Minnesota
eleven next fall than a snow ball hat
of remaining Intact in that place all bad
little boys aro supposed to go. The north
ern gentleman would make pragmatics
of all Cornhurkers. Ho would have them
go ut their gridiron task with cheerful
effort and accept cheerfully the fate
which Is to be handed them In the unals.
He wants tho Cornhuskers to prepare to
fight hard and to take no una mo in
honest defeat. There Is to be defeat for
the Cornhuskers, of course, at the hands
of the Gophers, so why not be prepare 1
that's tho Mlnneeotan'i philosophy.
Rather Interesting, anyway, this nothern
suggestion that one should recognize Out

outcome Is not to be considered and why

The Itinerary of tho Whlto Sox provides
for their passing through 'Omaha when

The White Sox and a bunch of fans,

Not Knllrely New.
Dut tho MluneaiKills scribe's suggestion
Is not ut all new. For many yeaw,
students und foot ball teams of the uni
versity of Nebraska havo regarded tho
Minnesota game philosophically. It has al-
wnys been considered a certain defeat for
the Nebraska eleven and none but the
freshmen these really true sports who
love the college game because It Is a sport
that represents the cleanest of all athletic
contests have been greatly grieved over
defeat. There never has been a recent sea
son when the Cornhuskers wero booked U
win. Here and there were students and
writers who declared the time had ar
rived when Nebraska was going to re
peat that 1902 trick, but even down .i
the hearts of these persons won a fettered
fellng that kept saying that reminded
them that the Cornhuskers would not win,
that something unforeseen would step In
and be the undoing, und so It always nar.
llecuuse history has, given the Corn
huskers but a single victory over Minne
sota, why should the Cornhuskers of to
day be resigned to a condition that could
be changed, If the philosophical cloak of
apathy were hurled off and the sleeping
strength exerted? Something will con

Nebraska's defeat under the present sys
tem. There must be uetlou If tho thing
that happens Is to he u victory for Ne

evolves nothing but defeat ut the hands
of the Gophers; It has brought little else
from other schools.
Not llrnlly ClianiiH.
Two champions of the Missouri valley in
recent years, some will suy. Yet in 1911
tho Cornhuskers did not lick Ames. The
two teums met and the Aggies fully held
their own. Their clulm to the title In
fully as clear as Nebraska's. This season
the Cornhuskers gulned a hollow victory
over Kunsas und Ames licked all Its op
ponents decisively. The Aggies surely
looked the better.
To such u coaching system ns Nebraska
now has no one can look for great things.
It cannot produce them. Couch .Stlehm Is
an excellent tutor, but he Is fettered on
ull sides. He must havo asulstunts. Tha
present plan of coaching elevens Is rotten,
and It produces rotten foot bull. The play
by the Cornhuskers In the Kansas gamn
last fall was one of tho worst exhibitions
of foot ball ever pulled off In the middle
west by a college team.
