Thomas J. Hickey, president of the association, so declared to the United Press tonight. Hickey said he was aware of reports that three or tour club owneis contemplated withdrawing trom the cucuit and joining with International league club owners in the formation oi d new league, but that he knew nothing: of it "officially." "If such a maneuver is attempted, we will be ready for them," declared Hickey. "We don't contemplate any such "trouble, but if it comes, the league will fight." Hickey refused to divulge his PUn of battle, saying that to do so would leave the association open to any contemplated offensive. The four teams expected tox"insurgre" are reported to be Indianapolis. Louisville, Toledo and Columbus. They are said to be considering uniting with Baltimore, Montreal, Toronto and Buffalo, -with the Baltimore franchise probablv transferred to Chicago. Hickey declaied specifically that he knew Columbus, of which Joe Tinker, former Cub and Chicago federal league manager, is piesident, will "remain loyal." g- ths merits of their victory. st TV amors twice planted the behind the Nebraska goal, Trinity All Stars Play Tie With Beatrice Eleven The Trinity Stars football team went FABER TAKES HIS PLACE AMONG SELECT FEW OF BASEBALL CHRISTY ·TACK COOX1J33. to Beatrice Saturday and played a with Harmon's Beatrice team, _ .... _ _ resulting in a tie of 19 to 19.

Several times during the seeond half the Lincoln team took tho ball to within easy scoring distance, but in each instance Norfolk put up a wonderful stone wall and the local boys lost the ball on downs. Both teams fumbled, more or less, during the third and fourth quarters and penalties were .frequent. Some members of tho ILncolh team resorted to slugging but this ,sort of poor sportsmanship xvas nb,t overlooked by tho officials and penalties inflicted. Lincoln had the advantage over the visitors in weight Two successful forward passes, which netted good gains, figured prominently in the Lincoln team's march to the touchdowns. During tho second half both teams tried tho open game freely, but there was no "outclassing" in this department. Captain Verne Moore, of Lincoln, won tho toss and chose to defend the west goal. Hight halfback Lamb made a fifty yard return of Slmpkln's kick- oft and tho ball was carried to Nor- folks' 30-yard line.
