v-sf FOOTBALL GOPHERS SAY NAY Minnesota Will Not Enter the New Football League Which. Is Fro posed by Nebraska. JTorth Star Eleven Is Not Logically in That TerritorySohednle ^u Already Ml. According to a dispatch from Omaha, a football league composed of teams from the universities of a number of western states, will be formed in the near future. A meeting of the Institutions interested will be called at once. According to the Omaha dispatch, the members of the new league will be teams from the universities of Missouri, Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado. Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota and pos sibly two other state schools The league la being engineered by Professor Clement, who went to Chicago from the Nebraska university to attend the conference of the "big nine." H e said. "Nebraska was disappointed in not get ting Into the 'big nine,' but that only makes certain the plans which we have* had in progress for some timethat of forming a league from among the strictly western universities W e have had theton, scheme under consideration for some time, and were only waiting for the Chicago conference before announcing tt. If the *blg nine' had decided to let the western universities into their organization, our plans would never have come to light. But now we must have a western league or quit playing football. "The western universities may arrange to participate In some track meet or play a baseball game with some of the mem bers of the 'big nine,' but football games are, of course, out of the question, with one or two exceptions." Minnesota Declines to Enter. The new league may go through, and probably will be a success, but it is hardly likely that either Minnesota or Iowa will be included in Its membership. Dr. H. L. Williams, athletic director of the Uni versity of Minnesota, said this morning in regard to the dispatch from Omaha: "The report Is without foundation so far as Minnesota is concerned. A s a member of the big nine, Minnesota would have nothing to gain by entering such a league. We are not logically in the same territory as the other universities named, and our schedule is pretty well filled up as it is. "I do not think that Iowa will enter tlu, new league Iowa also is a member of tho big nine, and will prefer to schedule games with such teams as Illinois, Minnesota, Chicago, Northwestern or Wisconsin, rather than to take on Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and the others " Dr Williams said that the Minnesota board of control had not yet taken formal action upon Wisconsin's proposal that the Minnesota-Wisconsin game be played in Madison Thanksgiving day of 1903. H e Intimated, however, that Minnesota would agree to the date. It had been Minne sota's Intention to play Illinois at Cham paign Thanksgiving day. and in case the badger game Is definitely scheduled for that date, Illinois will probably be given the Saturday of the second week in No - vember, the date originally assigned to Wisconsin. There will be professional football next season on a greater scale than ever before. Barney Dreyfuss of Pittsburg, the base ball magnate, is to head the movement. It is claimed that other magnates In other cities will take up the game axffi put fero^ fesslonal teams in the field. The football season does not open until after the close of the baseball season and there is a period between the close and Thanksgiv ing when the gate receipts at the parks are not enough to pay board bills. It Is said that Chicago will be included In the circuit as will New York, Brooklyn, Detroit, Baltimore and Washington. There has always been an aversion to profes sional football on the grounds of brutality and there has been a special effort to keep the sport a distinctive college sport Any movement in the line of professional ism has always been criticized and this new movement will doubtless meet with the same burst of disapproval. College men who read of this proposed circuit composed of professional teams will doubtless be a unit in fighting the or ganization Professionalism robbed the colleges of their greatest sport, baseball, and now when the shrewd athletic man agers see the amount of coin to be made out of football, the game will doubtless # o the same road. It will weaken the college teams, too, for men who are play ing star games at universities will be aftered flattering inducements to forget college loyalty and go into the game for the coin there is In it. At a meeting last night of the football men who played In the Yale-Princeton game, John R, Dewitt, 1904, right guard on the team, was elected to succeed Ralph Davis, 1904, who was re-elected but de clined to act as captain for another sea son. The Wisconsin team v,lll probably it be al lowed to make the trlj to the Pacific coast. Such was the statement glren out by Manager hlrkputrlck last evening The lenson for the sudden change in the plans 1B the lefuRal of the university faculty to allow the team to play any other teams excepting the University of California and Leland Stanford - -the two teams that were considered when the faculty consented to the post-season games. Ke the Unlversltj of California has already t one out of training with the Intention of not pl-ivlng i pot season game, the people who wero promising the gamen on the coast wired Manager Kllpfttilcfc that the only game that could be sub* tituted would be one with tho Parrls Indian ehool. and It is to this game that Acting Presi dent Bird objects. The University of Iowa flnished the football season of 1902 with a deficit which will be wiped out by subscription this month. The tu dents and alumni of the university will be asked tf contribute to the fund, which will, it is pm posed, not only pay oft this season's Indebted \w,9, but liquidate obligations that have been carried along for a number of years The pur pose of the univers'tj is to raise enough money ao that Iowa will stand free of debt and there fore be bettei able to take care of her athletic team* FOOTBALL BANQUET The demand for tickets for the football ban quet to be held at the West Hotel Saturday night has been so great that Messrs. Nachtrleb, Kennicott and Belden, the committee having the * matter ir charge, have been obliged to enlist the assistance of Manager Luby.

York Sun Special Service, Chicago, Dec. 5The Tribune morning publishes the following: The views of Wisconsin republican newspapers are decidedly opposed to ship subsidies in any form, and congress is ad vised not to hurt the party by presenting the shipping combine with the desired bonus. Wisconsin editors were asked to tele graph their views on the subsidy proposi tion to the Tribune, and half a hundred of them have lesponded with unqualified condemnation of the plan. The reasons advanced for opposing the measure are many, and in the aggregate furnish a weighty mass of objections. Some editors go beyond objections and condemn the scheme absolutely as a thinly disguised scheme to enrich a corporation has been able to speftd millions in buying up foreign shipping lines. The most conservative express the lief that, while the American marine may need some sort of encouragement, the end desired cannot be reached by adopting a measure that has a bad reputatiop and which, in its general purpose, arouses the antagonism of the general public.
