Important Contests. .' "
With Patty, .Russell and ', Bekins
cut of the lineup tonight, the chances
of Nebraska adding another Mis
souri Valley conference game to its
list are not bright,-, . '
The Ames-Nebraska contests are
important because, of the fact that
Nebraska may be shaken , from the
.1.000 per cent class 'by the fast-going
Cyclone quintet- If Ames, fails -in
dislodging the Ttuskers, .Grinnell
will take a fling at it Friday and
Saturday nights. ;.,The Worry Kent
aggregation from Ames is expected
to take "the Ncbrirskans into camp,
as they defeated the Kansas Aggies
in one game.
Washington w;ili -also play four
games .this wee!C Kansas will
, engage its attention on Wednesday
and Thursday and, then the Pikeway
five will go to Nojrnan to take on
the Sooners. ThezPikcrs gave the
Missouri five a good battle in the
second game of th series and will
undoubtedly win some games on
their southern invasion: ; '
Race' Between Tigers and Huskers.
The Valley race jpow' seems nar
rowed down to Missouri. Nebraska,
the Kansas Aggies, with a slim
chance for the Kansas Jayhawkers. .
The comeback of the Ames quintet
irom a poor start hag. been one ot
the features of the race this season.
Kansas, despite au auspicious start,
Itas developed into a. team very little
better than,, the early season form.
The Kansas Aggies have a great
offense and a stalwart defense. The
long shooting of the Cowell brothers
and the speed of Captain Bunger
feature the Aggies' play.
This week the Valley race "will,
in all probability, be decided. .

Title Holder Cuffs Endisli-
men at Will and Nearly Has
Challenger in Dreamland.
" York, Feb. 8. Jack Briton, the
world's welterweight champion, sus
tained his right to the title by giv
ing his old rival Ted Lewis one of
the worst beatings that L:wis has
ever been subjected to. The fight went
the limit of IS rounds and with the
exception, of the opening frame the
Englishman was on the . end of a
severe drubbing at the hands of the
famous Chicago welterweight.
There was never ! any question
about Britton's superiority after the
opening round. The champion
cuffed the Englishman, at will and
several .times appeared to have Ted
on the verge of a knockout. During
the second round it appeared for a
while af thougn .the contest would
break up in a free-for-all fight.
Britton complained to the referee
repeatedly that Lewis was resorting
to foul means whenever they came
to close quarters. The champion in
sisted that the: Englishman was heel
ing him with his glove and when
the referee paid no heed to the pro
tests of the welterweight champion,
ths latter followed Lewis to ;the
corner at the end of , the , second
round and there berited him for al
leged foul work. ;:
Lewis'", response o ; Jack's protest
was a lfft-liand hook to Jack's face
which missed. Level head9 prevailed
at this juncture and the seconds of
both men led the combatants1 away
before any further damage in that
direction could be accomplished. It
was a real savage affair fioni then
oi'. Once in the fourth round Lewis
slipped to the floor and while in a
reclining position held his hands out
for Britton to.assist him. The latter
ignored the Englishman's overtures
at any friendliness. Ted offered to
shake hands with Jack on- regaining
his feet and Jack once more ignored
Britton had a decided advantage
in nearly every round and repeatedly
coaxed Ted to. stay in and fight.
"Don't run away." called Jack as
the Englishman retreated under the
cannonading of the American's, shots.
It was not until the lltli round that
Ted found his sense of direction and
then he managed to get over several
left-hand jabs to the champion's
face, Outside of the opening round
this appeared to be Lewis' best hand.
He fought on even'terms during this
frame but after that it- was Britton
all the w;ay.- v" "
At times during the contest Bnt
,ton made Lewis look ridiculous
when the latter kept missing his left
leads and wild plunges for Jack's (
ja.v The champion would step in,
smash Lewis with his tantalizing left
pokes and laughingly dance away
while -Lewis wore the worried ex
pression of a beaten boxer.
