Quigley Issues a
Defi to, Nonpareils
1 for the Columbians
Frank Quigley. manager of the Colum
. blan foot ball team, has addressed the
; following letter to the sporting editor of
The Bee: ,- i
"As manager of the Columbian foot
. ball team, the 1911 champions of Omaha.
, I want to say a few words relative to the
: championship for 1915. The Nonpareils
. claim satd championship because they de
; feated the Monmputh Parka last Sunday.
How In Jhe, world ould they win the
' championship from a team that has never
been champion of Omaha T ' The Colum
bians of today consist of sight of last
' year's rerulars. Two of the regulars.
namely, aiarty Flanagan and Jack Fits
gerald. are not playing Sunday foot ball.
I want to ask the Nonpareils why the
Columbians are not th proient champions
of Omaha, and If It Isn't up to them to
trim us before they can rightfully claim
; the championship. I have tried to ar
range a game with, their team at Rourk
park. Nothing doing. They ere willing
to play at their own park, namely.' Imixus
park, located at Twenty-fourth and Vln
ton streets. Under th laws governing
foot ball they could not make the Colum
bians play at Uixus park, because they
have not got A regulation gridiron. Their
field la ten yards short. If they play us
at Rourk prk. which la In their own
neighborhood, they know they will get a
square deal. .The Columbians are anxious
to mix with the Nonpareils as soon as
possible, Sunday. November M, preferred.
If they won't ply at Kourke park we
will play, them on any regulation foot
ball field in Omaha, namely, Kontenelle
, park. Douglas county fair grounds. Fort
Omaha or Thirty-second and Dewey ave-
i nua. Now it U up to them, for the
; Columbiana are ready to play any time
and any place except Luxua park."

MAXWELL AUTO SALE PLAN
Ag-enti Hold Seiiion Here, at Which
Proipecti for Coming Season
PARTIAL PAYMENT . SCHEME
Maxwell automobile dealers from out
In the state. C. J. Brokow. Omaha, dis
trict manager for this territory; C. R.
Newby, Detroit, representing the western
district of th Msxwell sales corporation;
C. Dubck, a Chicago representative of
the Maxwell, and a number of Nebraska
agents spent most of yesterday holding
a family meeting at th Hotel Fontenelle,
where th whole automobile situation
was gon over. At luncheon th visitors
war th guests of the Maxwell people.
In th evening Mr. Newby went to Kan
sas City, wher he will b present at a
similar meeting to be held there.
Th topic discussed at th Omaha meet
ing that proved of th greatest Interest
to th MaxwU dealers of the state was
th plea proposed by th Maxwell Bales
corporation regarding th pushing of
sales In this, th district known . as
thirty-four, and which has Its headquar
ters In Omaha,
Oa Paywient Plae.
Manager Brokaw.and th other Max
well representatives went over with the
dealers and their bankers all th details
of th partial payment plan, which It is
believed Is going to materially Increase
th sales during th 1916 season. This
plan Is naw to th dealers and struck
them decidedly favorable.
Th Maxwell people front the Detroit
house are looking for great things from
th Omaha territory next year and at th
meeting asserted that this is looked upon
as the prls district . '
During the meeting valuable pointers
were slv ,. th dealers and they were
given practical lessons relative to selling
plans. Mr. 'Brokew was highly compli
mented upon his successful handling of
th business from th Omaha headquar
ters and during th interim In th dis
cussion of shop topics expressed himself
as being highly slated over th prospects
for business In his district.
The plans suggested Vy th Maxwell
for tnoreaslng sales met with th hearty
approval of th bankers present and
when they returned to their homes, with
on accord they were all boosters for the
Maxwell car and Its methods of dealing
with buyers of machines. The financial
plan proposed they asserted was sound
without being objectionable In any par
With th new flnanolal plan In opera
tion a number of dealers present as
serted that within th next twelve months
they would more than double th sales
of last year.
After complimenting Manager Brokaw
Mr. Newby took th people at th meet
ing Into his confidence and told them
that at this time the Maxwell company
Is turning out 17S finished cars per day
and that with th new sales and finan
cial plan In operation th output will be
quickly increased to MO and perhaps

IOWA CITY. Ia. Nor. 10. (Special)
A radical shake-up In th Iowa varsity
failed to keep the freshmen from gam

several shifts In th Iln and back Held
In an effort to strengthen th team for
Ames, but only one showed promise. It
Is possible that Ollllland may replace
McKee at left end. The latter has failed
to display the class expected of him and
since ailllland showed up well yesterday
he stands an' excellent chance of start

In addition to the switching of McKee
to the second eleven. Coach Hawley
placed Blackburn at Wilson's guard.
The latter, however, failed to satisfy
Coach Hawley. and before th end of

the scrimmage, and no account was taken
of the downs or touchdowns. Th first
year backs ripped through the vamltv
line for eight and nine-yard gains at a
clip and scored several times on the
Hawkeyes. At the conclusion of th
practice Coach Hawley left the field In
a pessimistic mood, while one of the as
sistant coaches declared that unless the
team showed vast Improvement before
Saturday, the Ames eleven would win.
Th latter part of th practice session
was spent In devising a defense against
the Ames formations, and th varsity

Th chances of the Central High sthool

that Welrich, the only regular backfield
