Big Track Meet In Spring.
!OWA CITY. Ia., Dec. 12. t8pecial.)
That aentlment favoring a big track meet
In the spring and tho abolishment of titles
regarding summer base ball playing b
college athletea is gaining ground among
the members of the Missouri valley con
ference Is certain. While the local author
ities, because of Iowa'a "Big Eight" con
nections, are not outapeken In their views,
nkny other prominent authorities In the
Missouri vallty schools are discussing
Coach John L Griffith of Drake univer
sity at Des Moines favors four changes:
1. A big Missouri valley track meet, not
subordinate to the "Big Elghi" meet.
3. The admittance of Grlnnell to the Mis
souri valiey conference.
3. A change in the present base ball
rule, giving the univeisity playera more
frtdom during the summer.
4. Clear Intel pretation of the present
Missouri valley eligibility rules.
On the summer base ball question, Ames
tnd Nebraska are known to stand with
Drake. With the development of the in
tricate system of eligibility rules the reg
ulation concerning the summer base ball
playing is deemed a rank injustice by
these Institutions. The attitude of Kansas
and Washington Is not known. '

Elklaa Combines Banks.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 12.-Senator Elkins
of West Virginia and a syndicate of local
and New York Interests . have obtained
possession of the stock of the American
National bank held by Robert N. Harper,
the bank's former president, and now the
head of the Washington Chamber of Com
merce. The transfer is taken in banking
circles as an Indication that there will be
shortly a consolidation of several other
I financial Institutions of the citr. siaklna
the combination about the tjlrd strongtst
banking house la the commun"- '
present plans of Manager Earl O. Eager
of the Nebraska athletic teams carry,
Omaha will be the scene In 19u9 of a great
foot ball game between the Cornhuskers
and either Wisconsin ot Illinois. The Ne
braska manager la now making out the
Cornhusker schedule for next fall and la
negotiating with these two schools In an
effort to get one of them to coma to the
metropolis of this state.. At tho present
time It looks aa if he will succeed In his
attempt to get the big game for Omaha..
Both Wisconsin and Illinois are willing
to meet Nebraska, but are not decided as
yet whether they want to come west for
a game or remain at home and play the
Cornhuskers next fall. A contest with Ne
braska in Omaha looks like a good proposi
tion to the managementa of boftr the
Badgers and the Illinl and they are not
hesitating about scheduling the game he
cause they fear It would be a failure fin
ancially. It Is because other schools which
they will meet hsve not yet been dated.
Illinois and Wisconsin both hope to play
Chicago and Minnesota and also to havs
a game between themselves. Until these
gamsa are scheduled and the dates fixed
up neither of the prospective opponents of
the Cornhuskers is willing to agree to
come west for a game. Each wants to
make Its Big Eight dales and then Ne
braska will be first choice for any of tho
remaining places on Its schedule. Then It
will depend on what date Nebraska selects
whether one of these two schools will '
agree to come wpst or to play at home.
Many Hard Games Avoided.
If, after both Wisconsin and Illinois
have arranged their conference games, tho
Cornhuskers can give either of them a
date which will not fall too does to one of
lta hard games a contract for a contest In
Omaha will be closed. Both ths Badgers
and the Illinl are opposed to arranging
several hard tames In a row or to taking
their teams away from home on a long
trip for a contest with Nebraska just a
week before one of their conference games.
Both want to meet Nebraska, and If Man ,
ager Eager can ao arrange his schedule as
to give either of them a game on a Satur
day that does not fall between two other
big contests that eleven will come tar
Omaha next fall.
Manager Eager la confident that ho can
fix his schedule so as to get either Wis- ,
consls or Illinois to play at Omaha. If
neither of these teans will come, now over,,
he says ho can get another big team
(possibly Michigan) to come to Nebraska.
The story of the great crowd that Omaha
turned out to the Amea game this fall has ,
spread around to all the western Institu
tions, and nearly all of them would like
to play Nebraska In the metropolis next,
fall. The financial side of a game in
Omaha looks good to all of them and they
would be very reluctant about turning
down a proposition to play the Corn
huskers there In 19"0.
With tho Ames game last fall It becamt
the settled policy of the Nebraska manage
ment to give the Omaha foot ball enthusi
asts a big annual game. In the big crowd.
It turned out to that contest Omaha proved
llaelf to be a better foot ball city than
Lincoln, and the Nebraska manager Is now
sorry that he did not realise that fact by
fore and give the metropol s games In sev
eral years previous to this fall. He also
is wishing he hsd place the Carlisle-Nebraska
kamo at Omaha last week. Ia Lln-i
braska game at Omaha laat week. In Un-'
while In Omaha It would have attracted
probably 7.000 people. '
Cornhuskers Go to Ames.
Ames cannot be played In Omaha again
nfxt fall, for Nebraska Is under a contract'
to meet the Aggies at Ames. This will ba
the only big homo game on the Ames ached-'
uie and its management is' not willing to
transfer the contest to Omaha in 19C8, even
though such a move would pour a great'
deal of coin Into the Aggie treasury.
In taking a game to Omaha next season'
Nibraaka's home schedule Is likely to bov
limited to one big game, for the Cornhusk
ers will play but five games with major
elevens In 19C9. They are now under con
tract to meet Ames, Iowa and Kansas and
are nearly certain to have an annual con
test with Minnesota. Contracts havs been
signed to meet both Ames and- Kansas away
from Lincoln. Minnesota will not corns to
Lincoln and Nebraska will have to play In
Minneapolis. Iowa, then, ia the only teanj(
of these four that will come hers. A two
yeir tontract was signed with, that school,
laat spring for one game In Iowa City and'
one In Lincoln. The game at Iowa City wag
played this fall and next season It will bo
the Hawkcyes' turn to come here.
With these four games practically set
tled upon there remains only ons more ofi
the five big contests yet to bo scheduled,
and that will be played at Omaha. This
arrangement will leave Lincoln but One of
the big games, the one with Iowa. The.
Nebraska management feels that one of
the major gamea la all the Lincoln people'
deserve. Thla fall their pitronsgo of the'
gamea waa very poor. Tha crowd at tha
Kansas game, which waa one of the
contests on the Cornhusker schedule, fell
short of the crowd at the Nebraska-Kansas
gamo at Lawrence the yeir before by ovor
900 people. Such patronage as Lincoln has
given the gimes this fall has not encour
sged the Cornhusker management to make
any special elforts to get big gamea her
for next fall, and It now looks as thougn
Iowa will be the only major eleven that
will be brought hers in 19o9.
Poor Attendance of eYar.
Thla season the poor attendance at tha
foot ball gamea was due, of course. In
great part to the fact that the gridiron
waa situated at Antelope park, which la
nearly a mile from the university. Until
thla year the athletic field waa located on
the campua and the stuJents wero enable I
to ste the team at practice every after
noon. With such a cond ton they tock
moie 'ntereat In foot ball than they did thla
fall and tumtd out in large numbers. Wh n
Nebraska f eld waa taken away from tho
athletic department fi r a si's on which to
bui.d an t-nttneerit g bul d ng end the grid
iron transferred to Antelope paik much of
the unlveisl'.y atmosphere was removed
from the game and the studt-nts lost a
great deal of Interest In ths sport.
In the past years hundreds of stud acts
watched the team at practice ovary dsy,
