Dec. 16.--Yale's football schedule for next full will be . changed In two respects, it seems assured. Lelugh and Washington and Jef- 1 terson will be dropped because of Vale's determination to frame a lighter play- Ing list of games for next season. Present plans are to give either Amherst or Williams a game in place of l.e- high and to install the University of North Carolina in place of Washington and Jefferson. Yale has played Amherst annually un- till within a few veurs. rfnd that college is slightly favored over Williams On the Sporting Pike By "CY" SHERMAN Over $5,000 Added to the Sur- Set Aside for Creation of New Athletic Field. TWO CORNHUSKERS ON OUTING'S ROLL OF HONOR. Tv.-o football players on the Uulver- sityq of Nebiaska football team have been singled out for recognition and distinction by Albert A. Brltt. editor of Outinjr magazine of New- York and compiled of Outing's annual Roll of tackle plus for the open 'date. The University of -CO'npiled of Outings annual I North Carolina was recommended by Dr. I Honor. Captain Tim Corey, left . Aithur Brides, the Yule line coach, *ho , ,ind Captain-elect Edson Shaw, right formerly coached there. It was stated | tackle, nre the two Cornhuskers thus unofficially that there is no prospect of ' a game being arranged ·n'th the Unlver sity of Pennsylvania. The athletic department of the University of Nebraska has cast up its I accounts and closed the 1916 football season with a net profit of $5,544.d2, according to the annual report of Athletic Manager Guy E. Reed, which he will submit to the Cornhusker athletic board. The season just closed was the most profitable in the history of Husker athletics in the point of receipts, but also %vas the most expensive. The athletic board took in $37,649.42 from all sources during: the football season and expended J32,105.80. During- the last year of Jumbo Stiehm's regime the total receipts were a trifle over $35,000. Following were the receipts: Student Season tickets (60 per TIE IS RIPE TO honored.

It is estimated that, with the additional ici.eipts from basketball and tracks, which are always practically self-sup- portlng-, all of the other sports at Ne- lnaska can be maintained without having- to touch a single cent of the comfortable Suiplus piled up during the football season. Reed's report to the board will show a balance in the treasury from the preceding seasons of $6,354.33--a part of the permanent fund for the new athletic field. Of this amount $1,810.10 remains from the season of 191415, and the remainder, J4.544.25, is from the season of 1915-16. Added to this permanent fund for the new athletic field will be the $5,544.62 clear from football for the 1916-17 season-boosting it well over the $10,000 mark. It is the first time that such a careful division of funds between the different branches of sport have been kept, Manager Reed declares, and it shows that the 1916-17 season was the most prospeious in the history of the university. In only a few instances did the individual receipts for the games fall below those of the prsceeding- year. The Notre Dame game on Thanksgiving day--and the Huskers have the same date for 1917--set a new mark in finances with receipts exceeding $13,000. A portion of the receipts from students' tick-sts and season books should be added to the $12,959.25 in cash taken in for the Notre Dame game. The real total was about $13,500. Coach Jesse Harper of Notre Dame was delighted, along with the Nebraska management, and was pleased to close negotiations for a Turkey day battle next fall. Ames Game a Drawing Card, The Ames game in Lincoln also proved to be a splendid money-maker. "With the game at Ames last season the Huskers had to be content with a trifle under $2.000. This year the gate netted over $4,500. The Drake game yielded practically the same as in 1915, but the Kansas Aggies battle more than overtopped the mark and bested the 1915 record easily. The long: trip which the Huskers made to the coast was not financially attractive and was not expected to prove o. The management felt it did "well to break even. The annual Jayhawker battle was a surprise jn point of receipts, falling considerably below that of former years. Heretofore the Kansas-Nebraska games have brought in between $8,000 and $9,000 on Nebraska field, but this year it dropped to slightly over $7.000. At Lawrence in 1915 the total gate receipts set a new high water mark- for Missouri Valley conference games with a $15,500 crowd on hand. Reed has not heard from the Iowa game yet. but is confident that Nebraska will get more than the guarantee of $3,500. The Hawkeyes drew slightly better than that in 1915, when the s.ime was played at Lincolu. Nebraska athletic authorities consider the showing- a splendid one, which gives assurance that athletics, are on a solid basis at the Cornhusker institution. Immediately following the Christmas vacation, basketball practice will be revived in earnest. The first dates for the Cornhuskers come the middle of January. country recommendations of the men on their own teams and other teams whom they have seen in action on the gridiron and who, in their opinion, arc of more than ordinary merit.

The AVestern league- is closing up its ranks and getting rp.xdy for thr pen- nnnt race of 1917, The Wichita situation is not giving Proldent Zchrung and his associates any suggestion o* bother, as information from the metropolis of southein K.'naas is to tho effect that Frank Isbell, boss of the Des Molnes club, is virtually ready to scurry to Wichita nnd complete the deal for the taking over of the franchise The league is the owner of the hist October, when ho was given three months In which to buy. The owners of tho Wichita park luuo miido a det- inito offer of $5,000 for the property, agreeing to accept a half payment prior to the start of the 1917 race and to await tho payment of the other htilf until the close of the campaign. Anxious to retain their place on the map of class A baseball, Wichita business men have pledged themselves to purchase $3,000 worth of admission tickets and to pay for the sum a right off tho reel. This sum will take caro of tho i'.rst payment on tho park nnd it uoems to remove all doubt as to Izxy'a intention to go through with the deal. The Western league has been ordcted to pay about $2,000 In salaries due tho \Vichlta players, but tho sale of tho franchise to the DOB Molnes mngnato will more than take cure of nil debts duo tho players. Pueblo, Colo., is the city which is most likely to inherit the Topeka franchise, which Owner John Savage has positively announced will be transferred from the capital city of .the Jayhawker state. Sav.ige . has tried to make baseball a go In Topeka for the past two ye.its nnd. while thuro is naught of as a result of his experiences, he hcvs decided that Topeka lacks the population to hold its own in class A. Pueblo business men of standing ;md responsibility have offered to provide a p.irk and free rent, and the recent growth of tho Colorado town in population and prosperity IMS convinced Savage that 1'ueblo is a vustly bettor "spec" than Topeka. At any r.ito, Savage soon will hit the truil which leads to the Little PUtsbuigh of the west, ami it should provide no surprise if the announcement conies buzzing over the wires \\ithln a week or two that tho Topeka boss has located in a new town. Charles N. Moon, former secretary of the Lincoln ball club. II!HO will show up in Pueblo while Savage is on the Hceno. Moon has boon nibbling at a purchase of tho Topeka club, but Savag has not Indicated that ho seriously wishes to sell. Meantime, Savage and Moon havo been exchanging wires and phone messages In a rather mysterious manner and the fact that they have nrr.uured to land simultaneously in IjKUe Pittsburgh is rather taken to menu they have in mind a partnership relation in tho ownership of the Pueblo bull club. Judging from a personal acquaintance with both men, The Star's sports editor has a hunch that Savage nnd Moon ought to be able to hit It off right well in » partnership deal. Sav- .iire alie.idy has the nucleus of a fairly strong hull club and as Charley Moon could put some new money to M a r k i n g in the pioposltlon, desirable talent hrnska may be dropped."

McGraw Is pretty well satisfied with Ms outfield -- Robertson, B'jrns and Kauff. The~p was a lot of untamed talk at tho close of vhe last season to the effect that McGraw wai "off" the young Federal leaguer. But you can take it from John himself that there Is nothing- to it. Kauff vorkfd under severe handicaps last sea- r son. due partly to his own vocal efforts nd partly to a natural Inclination on the inrt of other players in the league to "show him up." But Benny finished the ·=pason by walloping the ball in tho slx- i-«i. and ne's coming back this year with s spirit chastened and ready to work. With Kauff in anv kind of form-- even his last year's - the Giants will be assured of an outfield that will slug dangerously close to .300. if not mo^e. And ·iou can take it from Hughcy Jennings n n d Bill Cerrlgan that .301) outfields will do a lot toward shoving their clubs into the October handicap. They have them, and thev know.

Bill Rarlden will bea- the heaviest part of the burden and he will be supported by Lew McCarty. who cut his eye-teeth on the tall end of the last senson. Next year the Giants will have a. star southpaw for the first time since Marquard began to decline-- young Ferdv Schupp. whose three years on the bench more than justified McGraw's theory hat a youngster does not get all his baseball on the field.
