BT. LOUIS, Sept. 27. It has come at
last handicap baso ball advocated hyy
a magnate. R. L. Hedges, president ot
tho Browns, has a proposition to handi
cap the major league clubs so ns to In
sure greater success for the weaklings.
Hedges' plan seems to be a logical one
for handicapping tho leaders and prevent
ing them from grabbing all the base ball

Give the team which finishes second and

clubs should bo privileged to retain each
year thlrty-flvo players.
''This would give tho losers a larger
squad to pick, from. It would prevent
MrGraw and the other leaders from pay
ing reckless and Insane prices. It would
readjust tho game, balance the league
and distribute tho pennants. Now this
Idea may listen queor Just at present,
but wait and seo what happens.

LINCOLN, 8cpt. S7. Special. Coach
Stlohm's gridiron warriors will Inaugurate
tho foot ball season Saturday with a
game with Washburn university the first
lineup on the Comhusker schedule.
It has been a blue week In foot ball
olrcles at Nebraska rogretablo early sea
son injuries removing threo players upon
whom Btlehm was placing much confi
dence. Early In the week, Cameron, tho
Lincoln High school star, wont out with
u broken collarbones It Is doubtful If ho
will be able to get back into the game
again this season, and thus Btlehm losos
ono of the men he was dopendlng on to
rebuild the line.
Following on the heels of the Injury to
Cameron, Roese, tho track crack, went
out wtlh a badly Injured knee and tho
doctor has Issued orders against him ap
pearing again this season.
The severest Ioib of the week resultod
In the Injury which Earl Hawkins, var
slty quarterback, sustained. Hawkins re
ceived a broken log In scrlmmago Thurs
day and will be out for tho entire Mason.
His loss Is all tho mora serious slnco it
Is doubtful It Max Towlc, tho llttlo quar
terback who played ho Well in the closing
games last season, will return to school,
Towlo promised to report the first of Uo
week, but nothing has been beard of him.
To add to Stlohm's woes, the practice
this week has been anything but satis
factory. Tlio freshmen Thursday flight
reeled oft five touchdowns In rapid 'stltj-
cesslon against Uio regulars, the Una
making a miserable showing, The fresh
men forwards tore great holes, through
which tho backfleld men reelod off yard
In return tho, varsity failed to show
Its usual brilliancy and scored but threo
touchdowns when given the ball.
Very little Is known of tho strength of
Washburn nnd Btlehm says he can only
Judge from past performances. The ,Kan-
an nave oeen practicing two weeks
longer than the Cornhuskers, owing to
tho earlier start ot school, and should
have a deolded edge as far as condition
Is concerned. Washburn has had a fac
ulty of beating both Missouri and Kansas
and the Cornhuskers will havo no easy
tlms n( it.
Btlehm's practice, for the coming week
will be the most severe of the season.
The squad will not be spared and tho
men will bo kept at It early and late. It
will be necessary to shift constantly in
order to make up the line and Btlehm Is
far from decided as to his lineup for the
opening game. Rutherford and Purdy aro
sure to start at halfs; Howard at full
back, with Towle at quarter if he re
turns. Erwln probably will play center;
Shields and Halllgan will play tacklesj
Mastln one of the ends, with the other
three places still to be decided upon.
Tho most disappointing feature of the
practice so far is the lack of material.
Thlrty-flvo players havo roported-the
smallest lumber In years and Stelhm is
searching the school for players, without
avail. A call has been Issued and every
effort will be made to get more oien
out the coming week.
