The cancelling- of the pair of games will throw two open dates on the Xabraaaa screen October 12 and November 2., Beth games were to bare been played in Lincoln. The action -is not only reasonable from ai conservative standpoint but excellent from a Nebraska, viewpoint as well.

Nor would 4he interest In a game with? a far west compare with, that connected with the Notre Dame or Syra cuse comDats or even Northwestern, low or Kansas. The Denver game was never considered more than a practice affair. It could not possibly offer a line of comparison nor would It likely be other than-a, losing proposition nnnclayyy Dr.

The game with thfl Virginians will be a bitter It will be a long trip there and back and It's quite likely that the players will tv be in trim to -Jump into another game three or four day after they return from the east.

Another Important move of the regents was recommend that- the gum an tees to low'a be reduced from $2,000 to $1,800. In the event that Iowa; frowns on the it is possible that the 1818 clash may transferred to Iowa City. This, hcweveV is highly improbable i since there's not a chance in a thousand that the Iowans will be reduced to anything like a guarantee from the Lincoln game. The motley cut to Iowa has experienced niimhap fit ftltro Tt a I Inn from $.000. The Iowa City- crowds have never compared in alas with those of Lincoln.

Even with a or even guarantee, the Iowa game, when played in Lincoln, was one of the best financial bets of the schedule a sure winner. In ether years, the Iowa game has been about; the only means of comparing Nebraska's strength with the strength of Big Ten representatives. This year, however, there will bs plenty of opportunities to draw comparisons not only with the Big Ben but with the far east.

CHAMPION Ills Greatest Weawaess Apparently Lies In Hla Vaboaaded Cona- deace la Himself. Joe Stecher does not look llkeva champion. This man who probably ip' the strongest deefnsive wrestler in the game today, will probably, never ait In undisputed possession of the champlonehlp throne. His followers who had hoped that Joe aad developed system of attack'- system that would put him behind his man; with something more than the scissors, discovered Wednesday night that their hopes were useless. Joe hasn' a' thing- that he didn't have two years ago.

He didn't have enough then and he hasn't enough today. Even should Stecher win from Caddock, his title will be- so clouded as to be practically: worthless. The American Ideal is the champion who wins not the champion who draw Probably Joe Stecher" greatest drawback Is his own unbounded confidence in himself. He knows- and others know that no man in the jworld can throw him. But what Joe apparently does not know and what the public is champion will never be a champion until he adopts a new, and broadened style of Wladek Zbystko knew every, one In the audience knew exactly what Stecher was g-oln gto do when ha got the Pole to the mat.

And all that Ztbb had to do waa to guard against the expected. Looking, for the unexpected Is what baffles an opponent -That's why Frank Gotch was a Hla oppeonenta never nkew one minute what. he would do the jext, -v- rtt r- lo repeat that there's oom in the game for a real champion a man who can win decisively one who can approach the American ideal. Surely there is none among- uie so-cauea neaauner oi loaay. A wise old head at the Omaha ringside Wednesday night a man' who had seen Gotch in many matches, declared -that the the ot drnaster would have disposed af hoth Stecher and Zbyssko within an Hour when at hit best.

This of course is merely con lecture, it's an opinion, how ever, that is shared by of the. Wder heads. The little incident at Ravenna, as told (n this morning's. State Journal, the invitation extended by John' Pesek to, hla brother to drlvea Big Six Ovlsr. his an-a torn and the carrying out Sf the re auest, the halting of the rear rhel on John's back and the tearing, whirling tnotloa of the great wheel as It turned on the flesh for a new start, reminds us Baoe more that If there Is a champion In the making' today, champion' la the Shelton boy.

SUSHERS MAKE GOOD IN MANAGERS' JOBS Two bush leaguers' have made good as managers of big league baseball clubs rfihln the last few years, and another is lulu likaly to win his spurs before the present season has become history.

AVhen It was announced by Barney Dreyruss that Hugo Beadek had been signed to. succeed Jimmy Callahan ss manager of the Pirates, the baseball world pinched Itself a couple o'f-4mes and tried to tjirn over. Bezdek's appoint ment was even more astonishing thrtn was the: announcement by Charles Coirrlskey'ihat" he had signed Clarence Rowland, for Beadek never had be'enx a professional baseball nor had, he ever played professional baseball. He was sfcnply a'tiandler of athletics, with more than ordinary knowledge of condi tioning his men.
