ry and "Heinie Wagner are even
choices for the job vacated by Carri
gan. The University of Chicago alumni
magazine is against the return' of
Michigan to Conference athletics be
cause it would revive old bitterness
that existed between Maroon and
Wolverine undergraduates. Bitter
ness that exists between Northwest
ern, Illinois and Chicago is cited as
a Tiorrible example. v
None of which sounds like much
of an argument The only way to
eliminate this bitterness between
schools over athletics is for 'the col
leges to sever all intercollegiate rela
tions and play class games. This bit
terness is what makes gate receipts

swollen receipts from football, which
pays the expense of other sports.

Joe Koska, Pittsburgh welter
weight, is in Chicago for the winter
ring campaign and has placed him
self in,tlje'able hands of Jimmy Kil
roy, North Side manager, who will
handle-, his affairs. Kilroy and Kos

Packey McFarland. Any member of
the Doc Krone stable would be wel
come as an opponent and Doc can
talk business at the Collins gym up
on Wells street, where Kos"ka is tak
ing his inaugural workouts.
Kilroy is enthusiastic about his
new charge,and points to an eastern
record plentifully sprinkled with vic
tories over good men in the welter
division. He js willing to put up a
side bet on the chances of his. pro
tege and will back him in private or
before a Wisconsin club. Public
bouts are more desirable than pri
vate, says Kilroy, as they get better
publicity and will place his man more
to the front
