rM,rtnrs of athletics, faculty rep
resentatives, and presidents of the un

T ce wlji convene in Kansas City
iMday to hold their annual two-day
baslness meeting. The drafting of

new set of regulations to govern the
annual track and field meet and the
consideration of school constitutional
changes form the program for the
It Is not thought that the Confer

St. Louis University. Oklahoma and
the Oklahoma Aggies, the expected
petitioners, have finally decided not
to seek entrance.
Ames Gels Track Meet
jareltn Throw on Program.
The schedules in basketball, base
ball, football and track will be drawn
up. The annual Valley track and fie'.d
meet has already been awarded to
Ames, this institution receiving it for
the first time in the history of the
games. St. Louis, Kansas City, Des
Moines and Columbia are the only cl
ies in which the meets have, been held.
It Is probable that the athletic direc
tors will decide to do away with the
Frida)prcliminaries this year and in
stead hold the qualifying events on
the day of the finals. This is the cus
tom followed in the Western Confer
ence. The half-mile relay race is des
tined to go this year. It will be re
placed on the program by the javelin
throw, an event rapidly increasing in

Missouri and Nebraska
May Koume delations.
It is quite probable that at the
meeting athletic relations between
Missouri and Nebraska will be re
sumed. The Cornhuskera have already
applied for a football game with the
Tigers, while it is practically certain
that at least two basketball games will
be arranged between the schools. Mis
souri last winter challenged Nebras
ka's supremacy in the court game,
while the Tigers' football champion
ship is now disputed in Lincoln. Val
ley authorities feel that these schools
are too important in athletics not to
Washington, Ames, Kansas, Okla
homa and Texas are the fixtures on
the 1917 Missouri football schedule.
This leaves three open dates, those
held in the recently completed season
byOrake, the Kansas Aggies and Cen
tral College. Illinois, South Dakota
and the Oklahoma Aggies have ap
plied for Tiger engagements next
year, and each school will be consid
ered. Washington Game Will Be
l'laved Later 'ext Year.
The Washington game will be play
ed later next season than was the 1916
encounter. This is for purely finan
cial reasons, as St. Louis does not
warm up to the gridiron game until
the world scries is over. Texas and
Ames will also be played on foreign
fields, which leaves but one out of
town game to bo arranged. If Nebras
ka is scheduled, it is quite probable
that next year's game would be play
ed in Lincoln, as the proper arrange
ment would be to play a Kansas game
in Columbia one year and a Nebraska
contest the following year.
Suspended K. U. Students
Sue for Reinstatement.
Confident of a Jayhawker victory at
the Thanksgiving football game, the
students of the University of Kansas
held an impromptu rally the day be
fore the game. The discipline com
mittee of the faculty termed it a mis
demeanor and suspended eight of the
leaders. The students have now filed
a mandamus suit with a local attor
ney to be restored to their classes, and
the action is considered valid, as the
I'niversity is a corporation. Student
feeling is strong against the action of

The season's grind for the Univer

e Speed Is Shown
it Basketball Practlcp.
Basketball practice showed about 50
Wr cent more speed last night with
Viner on the floor, according to Coach
Johnny Miller. Viner and Vogt re
ported for practice Monday night, and
seem to be promising material. About
thirty men reported for Varsity prac
tice last night, and. several more were
turned away on account of lack of
equipment, Thirty-flve freshmen also
tried their luck at basket tossing.
Sheppard, a Varsity candidate is
showing great form as a forward, aft
er being shifted from guard, but Is
almost as good at center. In fact, he
is an all-round man. With the ma
terial on hand, a good team should be
rounded out, according to Johnnie
Dormitory to Glre Banquet
For Football Star.
The Tiger victory over the Jay
hawkers has put the germ of hero
worship into the hearts of the mem
bers of Benton Hall. The residents
In the dormitory, who are proud of
the work of their fellow-roomer, An
ton Stankowskl, will give a banquet In
honor of Missouri's quarterback Fri
day night. The banquet will be given
in the Benton Hall library.
Ham's Friends Quit
The Kansas City Star.
Because they thought the account
of the Missouri-Kansas football game
in last Friday's Kansas City Times
was unfair to Missouri, sixty persons
in Harrisonvillc, Mo., have discon
tinued their subscriptions to the pa
per. Harrisonvillc is the home town
of Paul Hamilton, Tiger tackle and

Chosen by Monitor.
Two Missouri men get places on the
mythical all-Missouri Valley team cho
sen by the Christian Science Monitor.
Harry Lansing Is chosen as center
and captain of the team, and Paul
Hamilton is placed at tackle. The
rest of the team follows: Randels
(K. S. A. C.) and Packer (Ames),
ends; Corey (Neb.), tackle; Sprong
(Drake) and Burton (Kan.), guards;
Moss (Ames), quarterback; LIndsey
(Kan.), and Smith (Drake), halfbacks;
Otoupalik (Neb.), fullback. Groves
gets honorable mention, and the
writer says "only two fullbacks in
the Valley were worthy of mention
Rider and Otoupalik. Otoupalik is
given the place because of his added
Choosing of Moss
Evidently n Mistake.
A mistake has evidently been made
in choosing the quarterback, for Moss,
the "man selected, did not play with
Ames this year. Moss was all-Valley
quarterback last year and was elected
captain of Ames this year, but at the
start of the season was declared in
eligible. In speaking of Moss, the
Monitor says: "Moss is an experi
enced veteran at the quarterback po
sition and last year was chosen by
many for the all-Valley team. This
year his work has been better than
last, and the only opposition he, had
was from Caley of Nebraska and Stan
kowskl of Missouri." This would seem
to do away with the possibility that
"Moss" was meant for "Sloss," the
Ames quarterback this season.
The Varsity basketball squad will
hold its first scrimmage of the year
with the freshman team at 9 o'clock
tonight. From now until the end of
the season the two teams will scrim
mage every Wednesday night. The
practice will be open to visitors.
