Journal Special Service.
Toledo, Ohio, Dee. 7. Richard
Meade, sporting editor of the Toledo
Newa Bee, prints the follbwing story,
which was given him by Umpire Owens
a few days after the sensational gam
bling story out of Minneapolis, which'
implied that Owens had thrown the
game to Columbus. The story was held
up pending the association's decision.
The following interview took place:
"Well, Owens,' you've got yourself
and everybody else into a nice mess of
trouble,'' Meade remarked.
"They tried to get me," retorted
Owens, "but I showed 'em where I
stood. I'll put 'em where they won't
do me any more harm."
Then followed a long recital of
Owens'. grievances, originating in Louis
ville, where Kelley is alleged to have
accused this umpire and Kane of tip
pine? off the millers' signals. The writer
casually remarked that Owens wasn't
looking verv strong.
"I'll tell you Owens admitted,
I haven't been able to do myself
justice for a week. I've hit it up
harder than I should and admit it has
hurt mv work. But I've cut out the
booze, and I think you'll find my work
better than ever."
"And this was only four davs after
Owens had caused the trouble in Min
neapolis," continues Meade. "Thru
this statement Owens admits he was
not himself during his session in the
miller city and puts a rather shadow
ing complexion on the situation at- that
"Now, if Owens was drinking, as he
says he was, he was not capable of
handling a ball game where two 'clubs
were fighting for the lead, as were
Columbus and the millers that fateful
"As to the charges of crookedness,
the writer knows nothing, as the mat
ter had not been brought up at that
time, and subsequently, when it was put
to Owens, he merely laughed and said
IN THE LONG GRIND
New York, Dec 7.The western
delegation of cyclists who will take
part this year's international six
days' bicycle race, which will start at
Madison Square Garden Sunday, at mid
night, arrived in town yesterday, seven
strong. They are Floyd McFarland,
-Hardy Downing, Norman C. Hopper,
W. E. Samuelson, C. L. Hopper, E. A
Pye and A. J. Clark.
Following the lead of the foreigners
the westerners went over to finish their
training for the race at Newark. Nor
man C. Hopper is the well-known Min
neapolis long-distance plugger.
The champion Portland club of the Pacific
Coast league will train in the Hawaiian Islands
next spring. That sounds some in the east,
bnt they think nothing of it on the coast.

night defeated Charles. Hackenschniidt
of \\x\a city in a fast Greco-Boman
match* Beell w6n the first two falls,
taking the first in 38^ minutes and
the second in 39 minutes.
It was the fastest bout seen here this
year. The men were well matched,
Beell having a shade the better of the
affair in weight. Both men were on
their feet most of the time and resort
ed to rough and fast tactics. Hacken
schmidt succumbed first to a half-Nel
son and in the second fall went down
under a half-Nelson, and crotch-lock.
He demonstrated his ability as a Gre

Journal Special Service.
Iowa City, Iowa, Dec. 7.Iowa's
prospects in basketball the coming sea
son are exceptionally bright., and the
squad, which has been practicing regu
larly during the past six weeks, is in
such shape that to select an unusually
strong team will be an easy matter.
The season, it is believed, will open
on Dec. 13, with the state normal five
as opponents. That a hot game mav be
anticipated is reasonable, when it is
recalled that Coach Seymour of the
normal team is a Springfield (Mass.)
product, and that city is the home of
the first basketball team in the coun
try. The normal's fine "gym" adds to
the likelihood of a strong aggregation
coming from Cedar Falls.
Iowa has no official schedule, as yet,
but it is understood that Northwest
ern, Purdue, Minnesota and one other
conference team will be played by the
hawkeyes. Two non-conference state
universities, and Coe, Grinnell and
other teams will also be met. Trips
east, west and north will be made.

Liberals Expect to Put Wisconsin
Back on the Athletic
Madison, Wis., Dec. J.Monday the
faculty of the university will meet to
consider the proposed changes in inter
collegiate athletic rules and a lively
time is promised. Some of the leaders
of the ultra-reform movement consider
it a step backward that the conference
at Chicago recommended.
It is said Professor Turner, father
of reform at Wisconsin, will be there,
charged to the muzzle with ultra-reform
data, and opposing him will be Profes
sor Victor Lenher and other advocates
of a more liberal policy. The same
fight which went on a year ago may be
continued.' But advocates of liberal
athletips are now more numerous than
they were a year ago.
The success of the Wisconsin team
this year has made a number of con
verts in the faculty. It is said Presi
dent Van Hise is in favor of the resti
tution of intercollegiate athletic con
tests and in general favors the ideas of
the Chicago conference. The

Proposals have been made to Owner

but the proportion was altogether too

Williams in exchange for Collins, and
possibly would have taken La Porte
