Bill Edmunds Hay
Li-atc Washington U.
Washington university of St. Louis
may soon be looking for a new ath
letic director, accordingNto word from
the Mound City, although not thrpugh
any desire to get rid of Bill Edmunds,
the former Michigan star who has
done much to put the Piker school on
the map in an athletic way.
The report Is that Edmunds has re
ceived an offer from another school in
a smaller city than St. Louis and that
he will accept. There is no friction
between Edmunds and the Washing
ton athletic authorities, but it is said
that the Piker director does not care
to remain where students, athletic
board and alumni are not a unit on
the coaching situation. Edmunds main
tains that it is not possible to turn
out a fighting team where there is the
slightest friction between the athletic
department and the rest of the school.
Whatever Edmunds' enemies if he
has ny have to say about the Michi
gan man as a coach, it is plain to
those who have watched the Piker
team, for years trying to lift them
selves up out of the dust, that he
has done much to advance athletics
and good sportsmanship in St. Louis.
Since his arrival on Francis Field Ed
munds' eleven has beaten Missouri
once and St. Louis university three
times a record in itself.
A New Stadium.
The University of Nebraska is to
have a new stadium. Although the
football team did not show the prow
ess of former years, financially the
season just past was the most suc
cessful in the football history of the
school. Expenses were heavier than
ever before, but the Increased re

treasury. More than $10,000 is now
