By CLYDE E. EH.IOTT,
In some circles of tlie alumni there is
mild agitation for getting the University,
of Nebraska to oak for admission to mem
bership In the Western conference, which
Is more commonly known as the "His
Nine." In Omaha there In considerable
expression which favors a movement to
get the Cornhuskers Into this larger ath
letic body, nut there hardly seems any
probability that the Lincoln school will
ask to be taken In, for there Is such a
wldo difference of opinion on the wisdom
of joining hands with a larger body than
the Missouri Vnlley conference, which al
ready Is fettered with enough faculty
rules to make the tutor of a team wonder
whether he Is going to hnve enough men
tch next season to represent , the school
or not. Nebraska Tit- having enough
trouble In the smaller body to keep it
busy; at least so contend many of the
Kinds who arc close to things athletic
at their school, and they do not favor
going Into another , conference, althugh,
tney wouKKilke to seo the Cornhuskers
free from the organization of which It
I now member.
'l.Ktle to He Gained.
There Is little to be gained for the 'Ne
braskann through' entering . tho "Illg
Nine." The .rules which govern the stu
dents who engage 'In-athletics' for these
schools are' fu1)y as obnoxious as those
In the. Missouri Valley .conference! In
deed, many e them are worse, and really,
tre so Hill)-' that Michigan n few yearn
ago pulled out. Nebraska's natural posi
tion makes It Imperative that It should
annually compete with such schools as
Kansas, Ames, Missouri, Drake and Iowa.
It does not need to look to Wisconsin,
Illinois, Chicago, Michigan or any other,
member of the "nig Nine." There Is
plenty f stiff opposition In the Joesl di
vision, nnd so long as the CornhUskprs
can stick In this conference and be the
leader they should not complain. That
Is the view many grads and Undergradu
ates tako of the situation. Nebraska Is
the big frog In tho Missouri valley pud
dle; what It would be In the Western
conference no one can tell. There is little
doubt, however, that It would be superior
each fall to all schools with the possible
exception of Chicago, Minnesota, Wiscon
sin and Illinois; while It would always
be. a hard proposition for any of these
schools. The Cornhuskers always work
the Gophers to tho limit. For three years
they licked the Illlnl each Thanksgiving.
Not l.aektntr Games.
But even if Nebraska Is the equal or
almost the equal of tho best In the "Big
Nine," it would gain nothing except a
little newspaper flattery through enter
ing the large body. It can get all the
games it wants with "Big Nine" eleventh
Each fall tho Cornhuskers play Minne
sota, usually the leader of the large or
ganization, and It can arrange at least
one other game If It chooses. Two "nig
ljne" contests and games with Ames,
Kansas, Missouri, Drake and two minor
schools afford all the foot ball menu the
Lincoln school can handle. "80," ask the
grads, "what Is the use of getting Into
tho Ulg Nine, even if the Western con
ference mentors will have us ,and they
really would have us, we have heardT"

The closing game of the season, which
is to be played Saturday with Doane
college of Crete, Is the big game of the
season for both schools and is always a
hard fought battle, . last yer!s victory
over the Tigers being the first for' three
years, and Ilellevue has never won on
the Doane field since the two schools
have met In athletics. Although tho
championship Is now In the hands of
Wesloyan, Ilolste will mako a great ef
fort to repeal last year's victory over
the Tigers, us the team which wins Sat
urday's contest will capture second place
In the collego league.
The team Is In good condition for the
game, although one set of backs will be
out on account of Injuries. Tho team
has been given a number of 'how plays
and 'formations In preparation for the
Tigers, whose game with Wcsleyan lost
week was witnessed by Coach Ilolste. '
The punting so far has been wrak'and a
new punter Is being developed this. week.
Kamannkl and Haswell , will - probably
change off In punting Saturday's . game.
Several touchdowns have been mado on
blocked punts, as In thn Mornlngsido,
gamo, and Ilolste Is determined to eradi
cate this weakness by Saturday.
The greatest of enthusiasm is being
shown by the .student' body and the slo-
xnn to "Beat -Doane," is to be heard
everywhere. At least a hundred rooters
will accompany the tcaim to Crete, and
many more of the old 'graduates and old
students -will Join the crowd at Lincoln.

CHICAGO, ttov. 20. Rumors that cer
tain clubs In the American association
and Western league are planning to-be-come
"base ball outlaws" and form a
new league were confirmed here vtonlght.
President "Tip" O'Neill of the Western
league admitted that discussion of the
proposed league had been going on for
weeks and thnt the matter took concrete
form at a meeting of the league held in
Milwaukee last week. Certain club own
ers tn the AVestern league assert that
their cities nronerlv belons to a circuit
with Milwaukee, Kansas City and klnne
spoils. It was also contended' that Preel
dent O'Neill was too close to major league
influence and the directors therefore
ordered the removal of the league's head
quarters from Chicago.
The Invasion of Chicago and the estab
lishment of rival clubs tn American asso
ciation cities are said to be Included tn
the plans of the proposed league. The
American association' Is supposed to have
an option on a favorable piece ot ground,
on Chicago's "north side" and for several
years has threatened to place a club )n
linns' of the proposed league. It Is said,
are to establish clubs In Chicago, Minne
apolis, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, Kansas
City,' Omnha, St- Joseph and an eighth
city yet to be selected.
"Nothing officially has been said to me
regarding tho proposed league." Said
President O'Neill. "Hut the proposition,
however, has reached me from other
sources. I know there has been trouble
for several weeks.
