FOR VALLEY HONOR
Victory Over Ames Puti Stiehra
Bollers Well in Lead for Mis
souri Valley Championship.
MANY UPSETS IN THE DOPE
Coach Jumbo Stiehm and his Corn
husker proteges secured a f.rftt-class
itranglo hold on the Missouri Valley foot
ball championship by the decisive de
feat over the Ames Aggies Saturday. A
victory over Kansas alone remains be
tween the Huskers and the cherished
championship and the victory Is con
tended by most valley foot ball followers.
The Nebraska athletes staged a swell
exhibition of the gridiron sport Sutur
day and those Nebraska supporters, who
felt a little dub.ous ftcr the Unlit squeeze
ugalnst Notre Dame were much reicveu.
For the Stiehm rollers were an en
tirely different aggregation against Amos
than they were In the fray with the
Catholics. It was a weil balanced or
ganization and every man on the squad
nut only played great individual foot
'ball,, but was a perfect cog In a smooth
t'taumberlaln Stars Again.
Of course, Guy 1'hainberia.n was the
l.r tilit individual star. There is not a
follower of Nebraska foot ball who does
not believe that Chamberlain ia the greut-
st open field runner In tho west, it Is
certain no greater has ever been seen
un Nebraska field and that field has seen
Mime wonders In Johnny Ltender, Tommy
juhnson, Johnny llcGovein and others.
Chamberlain Is already being boosted
as an All-Western man and he surely
deserves the distinction. There are many
who believe he Is of All-American calibre,
although there Is, of course, Uttla chance
for him to receive that distinction from
the so-called eastern critics.
The victories over Notre Dame and
Ames make the Cornhuskera the favorites
for the valiey title. It Is conceded that
they should win over the Jayhawk at
Lawrence by a substantial score and
there ia little doubt that a second win
will follow when Iowa is met la
the last game of the year at Lincoln,
Dope Upsets Preqaemt.
Upsets In the dope were frequent last
Saturday. The victory over Wisconsin
by Chicago was a surprise and the de
feat of the Michigan Aisg.es by the Ore
gon Aggies was another jolt the well
known dofce received.
The western conference result ia more
or Icbs uncertain now. Minnesota waa
tho original favorite, but the Gophers
only earned a tie with Illinois. Chicago,
wl.o was supposed to be weak, won from
the Cadgers and are now leading the
field as it Is tne only team with a clear
xlate. Either Minnesota or Illinois, how
ever, has a chance to win from Stagg's
men and the Big Nino honors are very
likely to result in a three or four-cornered
Yale waa handed its weekly walluplng
by Colgate Saturday, More clearly than
ever the Blue ia removed from the run
ning in the east. Princeton and Cornell
won easy victories and still lead the
eastern field. Pittsburgh also walked off
with an easy win and must still be re
garded as a factor.
Syracuse waa a favorite over Michigan,
but it waa not thought Yost's crew would
keep the score so low. There were no
upsets in the east except the defeat of
Yale by Colgate, and no changes were
made In the race for eastern honors.
Pleased with Victory
Crelghton'a victory over Yankton col
lege, 45 to 0, leads local foot ball follower
to believe that Creighton will run up a
larger score in Saturday's contest against
the St. Thomas eleven from St. Paul.
St. Thomas is usually represented by a
team of midgets, but these men are
prodigies when it comes to foot ball.
Speed, ginger and team work are their
characteristics, and It goea without say
ing that Saturday's game will be one of
the fastest and most thrilling scheduled
on the local field this year.

FA1RBURT, Neb., Oct. . (Special.)
The Kalrbury Hich school foot ball eleven
returned from Wymore last night with
another victory annexed to its record.
Falrbury defeated Wymore In a rough
game by a score of 13 to 0. Thomaa and
Vanler were the stars of the Falrbury
Hitch and each one registered a touch
down in the flnst quarter. Falrbury went
through the line of Wymore for large
gains made possible by its heavy tackles
and guards. Thomas made a touchdown
on a forward pass. While the Wymoreans
made splendid gains on end runs and
smashca. at the same time they failed to
carry the pigskin over the opponents'

HOW FOLWELL BEAT
Yale with Washington and
Bob Folwell, the former Pennsylvania
tar and now coach of Washington and
Jefferson, showed real foot ball brains
In training Ids team to bet Yale this
year. Folwell's team of last year was
shot to pieces by graduation. He lost
Spelgol and Fleming from his back field
and his material this year was not only '
green, but light. He knew he could not I
develop a line smashing game with the !
material at hand, so he trained hla
backs In the fine art of, forward pass
ing, but not such passing as has been
seen heretofore on eastern gridirons. Ills '
backs were taught to throw the ball low,
at no time doea it rise above the head
of the thrower. The passes were not long
cnea either, never netting more than ten
or fifteen yards, but they served to beaU
Yale. Folwell also developed a whale of
a run from kick formation, which com
pletely bewildered the Yale men.
The Washington and Jefferson eleven
displayed quite the "newest" style of
foot ball that has been aeen in the east

Play a grand defensive game, they are
weak In offensive work. Jones kicked
off to Qulgley, who advanced twenty
yards, and from then on both teams were
frequently required to punt because they
failed to gain the essential ten yards. On
the defense both teams were unusually
strong and It was a difficult matter to
make the necessary ten yards. Kbaugh,
Blackman and Jones were the particular
stars for the Iowans, while McCormlck,
Sawtelle and Qulgley were continually In
the limelight for the Omaha team. In
the last quarter, with half a minute to
play, Qulirley tried a place kick from the
forty-five-yard line, which he missed by
about a foot. Next Sunday the Colum

President O'Neill Declares He Is
Head of Organization Until He
Gets Back Salary.
NO QUORUM AT THE SESSION
CHICAGO, Oct. SI. The meeting- of the
Western leaguo base ball men scheduled
for today did not take place for lack
of a quorum. Owner Jack Holland of the
St. Joseph club appeared at the ap
pointed hour in President Norrls ("Tip")
ONellla office and O'Neill said he held
the proxy of Frank Isbell of the Des
Moines club, who ia in California. It was
reported that one or two others of the
franchise holders in the league were in
the cHy, but they had not reported. It
waa said. Regarding the factional troubles
of the league President O'Neill said:
"Any time those members of the
league who wish to be rid of me as pres
ident pay me according to the terms of
my contract, I'll hand them their presi
dency. I sent out the call for today's
meeting In accordance with the usual
annual procedure. The talk of supplant
ing me as president Is al ltalk, for I
was given a contract by the club mem
bers for five years, and this contract
does not expire until 1916.
"Not a member of the league has paid
his dues to the organisation for this
year, nor have I been paid, and I have
advanced, money to cany on its affairs.
Alt I w.si t la what Is coming to me and
when I get that I am through. But until
I do I am the president of the Western
league at least until tho end of 191.
"The season has been exceptionally
bad and every club has lost money.
That has caused much of the trouble to
gether with eonle opposition on the part
of one or two members that alwaya has
existed against me."
Base ball men . from all sections of the
country are expected here In the next
few days preparatory to departure on
Thusday night for San Francisco. They
will leave on special train for the
meeting of the National Association of
Base Ball Leagues.

St. Thomas Here
Ft. Thomas' college of St. Paul, Minn.,
will be Crelghton's next opponent on the
gridiron, the cadets coming to Omaha on
Saturday. Last year the Omaha eleven
lost by a narrow marKln at St. Paul.
The St. Thomas team, though almost
entirely composed of small players, has
successfully met opponents of consider
able more weight, pep, ginger and speed.
The fighting characteristics of the St.
Thomas players and their whirlwind at
tack Is one of the features of their style
of play. IxH-al foot ball followers believe
the visitors will have to rely practically
on forward passes and open play to get
near the goat.
Crelghton's one big battle comes No
vember IS when Notre I'anie will appear
on the local field. That Creighton will
score seems more than likely. With a
line averaging better than 200 pounds and
with Plats, Flanagan and Lutes In the
barkfield there are bound to he some
points chalked up to Crelghton's credit.
An oen date follows the Notre lamo
contest, the season closing with the an
nual Thanksgiving day game against
To all appearances tho Creighton Hh
team has disbanded. Tho high school
squad made a promising start with an
easy victory over the Nebmska Deaf In
stitute, 45 to 0, and then lost to Omaha
High, 12 to C, which marked the end of
operations for Creighton. Kfiorla were
made by their manager to fill a schedule,
but without success.
Shenandoah (la ) has signed a contract
for a game there, but cancelled the same
for some reason, while a Thanksgiving
day agteement still exists with Nebraska
City. If this game Is not also wiped off
the slate the high team will again don
the moleskins to prepare for the fray.

A strenuous week's practice Is billed
for tha University of Omaha foot ball
aquad In preparation for the Peru game
next Friday afternoon at Chris Lyck
park. Coach Do Lamatre Is determined
that hla eleven carry off the honors.
Scrimmage will be the order of practice
for the first three afternoons of the neck.
Notwithstanding tho loss of several
players because of injuries tho University
of Omaha team la In tho best of condi
tion. Since Dutcher has been shifted to
right tacklo and Adams on left end the
line haa been greatly strengthened. An
other change that Is expected to work
for the beter Is the shifting of Jenka to
the pivot position from right gum a and
to place Koibmaker, who held to tho
center position before, to left tackle, The
shifting about, of theBe players has re
sulted In an entirely new backfleld.
"Eggs" Delamatre is being used at left
half, Calahan at right and White at full.
