Of Milwaukee would abolish foot ball next

The. canceling of this game leaves
Creighton without a game on October 13,

that six Of the players who have been
entered to tnko part In the trial matches
for the selection 'of the Davis cup team
haVo signified their willingness to play.
President Wrenn also said that arrange
ments uro now being made for the pre
Amerlda will be represented by a strong
team ' this year, for tbo men who have
answered the call for material are strong

ness to try for the team are an follows!
It. Nonls Williams, the national clay
court champion; Walluce F. Johnson of
Philadelphia, Harold IT. Haclcett and
noymond D. Llttlo havo replied directly
to Mr. Wrenn, while Maurice 13. Mo-
Loughltn, the national champion, and
Thomas C. Dundy, thj partner with Mc
Loughlln In tho national doubles, have
communicated with the committee
through Dr. Sumner Hardy, tho national
committeeman of the 1'nclflo coast.
Ilurold Hackett, It Is said, undoubtedly
will be selected for tho challenging team.
It Is sold that the selection of the vet
eran, Harold Hackett, would chltfly be
duo to his phenomenal record as a dou
bles player, and it Is In that department
of the game that he Is expected to
strengthen the American team. He was
ruttd four times with different partners
in the first ten of the doubles list last
In the estimation of the committee and
the experts who are carefully scanning
the records so as to put together ono
of the strongest teams this country has

Oear believes the Kaws wll begin
the Western league season with a stronger
aggregation than at any time since
getting a franchise on the circuit. Ho has
secured a number of recruits wHIch he
believes will be fast enough to go the
paco of the Western league and he will
not have as many obstacles to over
come as confronted him a year ago.
He admits that ho underestimated the
speed of the circuit In preparing for the
race In 1312, but he has overcome this
with a year's experience. Last season,
he was compelled to carry a number of
mon who did not want and would not
submit to rules of discipline. A num
ber of others were Inclined to break
training rulos, wanted to kick and main
tained a grouch during tho entire', sea
son. Ho believes that he did not got
the services of these men, which they
were capable of giving. He has disposed
of these men and wilt not begin the
season with a slnglo man which he In
herited from tho former management.
In getting rid of the undesirable men,
ho thinks that he has been extremely
fortunate in securing a fow men who will
make the fans of the circuit sit up and
take notice. Tho most fortunate deal
was In trading Dert King to Memphis for
Cy Korsythe. The latter Is a graduate
of the Texas league and wilt outclass
Polly McLarry. who hit .360 In twenty
gomes with Lincoln last season. nfii-
completing the Texas season. He bought
aicLarry release, so will have the serv
ice of both men. Lee, the only out
fielder who played here last year, will
guard the left garden as usual. All of
these men will maintain a batting aver
age of .800, It Is believed, and they can
field the ball also. Forsytha has as irnnd
and as accurate a throwing arm as any
iieiaer on the circuit, or at least ho has
shown this (n the practice games.
KUbe Gardner, who was at flmt hmi.
last season, will not be missed If mil
itapps Keeps up his gait. During the
praotlco games, Kappa has developed
more ginger, better Judgment and a
better run getter than was th T,
Oear believes that with Rnpps on first
and acting as playing manager of the
team, that the entire bunch will offer
more opposition than ever bafnrn. Ttnnna

Fred Ollom, a youngster, will be at tec

BASE BALL TEAM ON A TRIP
Lea-res This Week io Meet Kansas
AftBles Coach Stiehm Pleased
with New Men at Spring;
Foot Ball Practice.
Dy JA3IK8 K. LAWIIENCK.
LINCOLN, Neb., April 13. (Special ) -A
week of unseasonable weather his
only served to deepen the gloom hovering
around the 'coaches and track squad of
the University of Nebraska. A stoady
downpour of rain the first four days of
the week kept the track men Inside dur
ing the most critical portion of the train
ing season, Interrupted tho spring foot
ball practice and made the base bn'l
squad lay off for another week while
the opening of the base ball season is
close at hand.
Added to the loss of good spring train
ing, the squad Is also suffering from do.
llnquencles In scholarship, with two of
the four veterans lncllglblo because thpy
are down in their studies. While the
two Racely, a valuable sprinter, and
Llndstrum, who holds the university
record In the pole vault It Is not likely
to keep them from tho meets coming
later In the spring, as the coach has
ordered them to drop practice altogether
and to get busy on their studies.
Reed Is not very confident of tne
Huskcrs showing up well in the Drake
relay meet, which comes a week from to.
day In Des Moines. With Racely and
Llndstrum in the squad, Reed might be
able to overcome the handicap he has had
In the weather.
Immediately after the, Drake meet
comes the dual meet with Ames, which
Is to be held In Lincoln. Reed will get
his first line on the strength of the
Aggies when the two schools line up in
the Drake relay meet. He Is confident
of making a better showing at Dcs
Motnes than the HUskers made at Kanras
City or St. Louis. He Is shifting his
lineup In the mile and half-mile reltys
and will probably use Racely, Zumwtnkle,
peaver and Clark for, the mile, while he
will hold Racely, Zumwtnkle, Reese and
a fourth man yet to be picked In rcsvo
for the half mllo.
Foot nail Men Grind.
While the spring rains Interfered, It
did not keep the foot ball men from
continuing the spring training Instruction
Stiehm has ordered and the squad was
kept pegging away In the rain and the
mud. ,Untll It became so muddy that It
wa slmposslblo to continue the signal
practices the recruits were taught how to
handle a slippery ball a turning point In
several games last season.
New men who look good to Stiehm are
Dallls, Coffee, Thompson and Eller. The
latter weighs 204 pounds and In addltlor
to his beef has played enough foot ball
to take him beyond the rudiments.
Base Dall Men Travel.
The Huskera base ball team leaves 'on
the first trip of tho season this week.
Uut two games will be played and both
of these will be with the Kansas Aggies
at Manhattan. The Cornhuskers ore
weak In pitching material, with Rodman
and Strain the only two veterans In the
bunch. Rodman has ha,d a world of ex
perience and should bo the mainstay of
the staff, ellltier has had nq opportunity
to get a line on his material as all of the
praotlco has necessarily been limited to
the gymnasium. Butting practice has
been most seriously Interfered with.

Tennis Is to come In for consideration
at Nebraska this year after four or five
unsuccessful attempts to place It on a

NEW YORK. April 12.-That Guyot,
Goux and Zuccarelll, the three noted
European pilots, who will come to this
country next month to drlvo In the 600
mile sweepstakes race at Indianapolis on
May 30, may be seen In other automobile
events In this country during the sum
mer and fall seems fairly well assured
now by the fact that several of tho as
sociations which are holding races this
year are already after the services of
the foreigners. A proposition Is now
being mapped out to have them take
part In the Elgin road race next August
and other events may get them as en
trants. All three of these drivers are entered
In the French Grand Prix, which will
be run In Amiens on July 12, and ac
cordingly they plan to leavo this coun
try shortly after the Indianapolis race
and prepare for tho big French event.
They will, however, bo able to leave
their cars In this country, as now and
special cars aro being built for each of
them for tho Grand Prix. Owing to this
fact the plan to havo them return to
this country Is made feasible since it
would not necessitate tho shipment to
Europe and back of the cars which will
bo brought here next month.
It Is said that James Dorsey, president
of the Elgin Automobile association. Is
prepared tq make an qffer to the trio
or any one ot the'ra who can ,bo. induced
to make tha return trip here, and Chi
cago automobile men aro preparing to
foot the expenses which will be en
tailed. Harry .Grant, twice winner of the Van
derbllt Cup race and a prominent fac
tor In many other big racing events In
this country, will in all likelihood drive
In the Elgin race this year. President
Dorsey has been after him for some
time to enter with an Alco, the car that
be piloted to victory on numerous oc
casions. Grant Is probably as cool, cal
culating, and at the same time as dar
ing a pilot as there Is In this country,
and a race In which he would be a con
tender against such drivers (is the three
foreigners now preparing to come here
would have un added Interest for lovers
of the sport.
There are othur foreign possibilities, too

tered at Indianapolis, by three Now York
ers, who already have signed; Trucco, a
prominent Italian driver; U. Gllhooley,
one of the three ontrants, will drlvo his
The three Italas which havo been
spoken of for Indianapolis may be other
possibilities. Fred Wagner, It Is under
stood, will arrange the racing dates of
the Itala team, and this undoubtedly
means the cars will run In the Kane
county events, for Wagner will probably
offlclato as starter there again, which
most likely will be the only big event of
the year at which he will serve. Just
who will drive the Italas Is not known
as yet. but It Is said they will be manned
by three of the best pilots Europe can
