'Die first question to be settled is
the selection of a manager. It is the
general belief that Harold A. Barn

can be induced to accept it he will be
given the place.
With the .splendid reputation es
tablished in the last few years, Ak
ron will have no trouble in getting
good dates. Practically all of the
old men have signified their inten
tion of getting back in the game
again this year. The choice of a
captain is another early move.

rooters were in the habit of calling
him, is undoubtedly the choice of a
majority of the players for this re

Across Neck and Hand
by Vicious Negro.
James McFeely Seriously Injured
Object of Attack Is Unknown.
James McFeeley of 117 South
Prospect St., cook at the Bank cafe,
was assaulted Tuesday night about
12 o'clock in front of the Buchtel ho
tel and. severely injured.
He was walking down Mill street
when a negro stepped up to him and
addressed him in an insulting man
ner. McFeeley told him to go away,
whereupon the negro struck him,
knocking him down.
When McFeely had risen to his
feet the negro drew a knife and cut
him on the neck and hand. The cut
on the neck was six inches long and
pretty deep. The cut on the hand
was also deep.
Several persons were standing by
and the negro was taken away. He
started to run up Maiden Lane alley.
McFeeley was taken to the office
of Dr. Harry Todd, Central office
building, corner Main and Mill bts.,
and injuries dressed. The cut on
the neck required six stitches and
that on the hand four.
The assaulted man did not recog
nize his assailant. He had no ac
quaintance with him, nor had they
had any trouble. The negro's action
did not indicate that his intentions
were to hold up McFeeley. What
his object was is not yet explained.
The police started to hunt the ne
gro and found him Wednesday fore
noon. He was brought in by Officer
John King between 10 and 11 o'clock
and lodged in the city prison. "Bill"
Hall is the negro's name.
