Coach Dawson is acting athletic director. ' The business end of the work will be conducted . by Neil Chaddertoa while Coach Dawson will be the executive. "The work Is going on very satisfactorily" said Chancellor Arery Wednesday morning, "With Coach ttawson at the helm and Mr. Chadder - ton assisting In the work of the office end with Coach Schuite and Coach Frank alio aiding the work of handling the state high school basketball 4urnaemnt will probably be very satisfactory." No Director Selected. Lieutenant Elmer Olfphant, of West Point, who was here last week looking over the Institution, had been regarded as a possible successor to F. W. Luehring but rumor has It that Oliphant la out of the race. Other men are being considered, however, and among them some of the best director In the country. Temporarily Nebraska will be under the guidance of Coach Fred Dawson The Husker school is getting along very nicely and the work Is in expert hands so the officials feel there is no necessity of rushing themselves to death in getting a new director. They believe it better to give the entire field a close survey and to select a man at their. leisure after the better men have been given the once over Luehring Leaves This Week F. W. Luehring stated Wednesday morning that he expected to leave for Minnesota this week. The former athletic director said that he would thin his household goods to Mlnnea - polls and would drive thru in his car. air. Luehring's final act in nis position as athletic director was to send the wlmmtnr team to victory over the Ames tank squad Tuesday afternoon. The work of Mr. Luehring as athletic director will not go with him. The tennis courts which he had erected, the swimming team, .the Coliseum floor for the basketball team and a host of other Improvements stand as monuments to his work at Nebraska Minnesota will find hiro an excellen executive and a diplomat worthy of representing the Gopher institution. Coach Dawson Is III. Altho nominally in charge of the .athletics at Nebraska at present, Coach Dawson la physically incapa citated and the directorship has fallen on the shoulders of Neil Chadderton for the time being. Coach Fred Daw - eon fell ill while in Kansas and la at present convalescing at Manhattan. Coach Henry Schuite has also had an attack of la grippe and is just getting back into shape to work with his i tracksters whom he plans to send to V Urbana. 111., for the fifth annual relay j c&rnival Saturday evening.

The champion seems to be in per fect condition. He Is a little bit heavy around the shoulders but from the looks of his slim legs and his trim waist, he could hop In the ring with about three weeks work. He is boxing with Larry Williams, one of the big sparring partners he had at Atlantic City. Of course, their work is very "stagy" but nevertheless, Dempsey shows signs of improve ment. He seems faster and more graceful on his feet, his boxing shows much improvement and his punches are sharper and more accurate. He still breathes a little bit loudly but not the same "noise" as was noticed just be fore he fought Carpentier. HAYELOCK BEATS HASTINGS Two Extra Periods Required to Set tie Best Gaame Ever Flayed on Suburban Court.

The University of Nebraska swimming team with only four members defeated Iowa State in a dual intercollegiate meet here thla afternoon 36 to 25 by win - ring six of the eight main events of tho Droaram. Philip and Lindley of Bought by Syndicate of Tour, With Denver Favored for Club, But Lincoln a Possibility. DENVER, Colo., March l.The franchise formerly held by the Joplin, Mo., club of the Western baseball league, was sold to a syndicate of four mt.n t a meetina of the Western laaue officials and prospective buy ers here U4y, it was announced this evening. . . . . . It had not been definitely decided to place the franchise in Denver as vet. - the purchasers said. Lincoln, Neb., Muskogee, Okl., and Sioux Falls, S. D., all want tha club, it was said, and a final decision as to where the club will be placed will be reached at another meeting. Al Price, business man; A. M. Ober - felder. concert manager, both of Den - Carrying the fight to a ten - round draw, Hugh Walker of Kansas City and George Lamson of Lincoln, heavy weights, scrapped one of the hardest fouaht battles nut on in a Lincoln ring at the city auditorium Tuesday night. Lamson carried the fight to Walker most of the time, but the "Iron Man" stopped his advances with strong blowa to the body. Lamson was on the offensive from the start and was able to land many light blows to the head and body, but was unable to make any effective smashes to vulnerable portions of the Kansas City scrapper. Walker took a great deal of punishment about the head but returned hard smashes to the body in exchange. The Indian's speedy attack gave him a chance to land many punches and his rapid fire jabs to the head kept Walker - covering up from the art. The "iron man" smashed a few to Lamson's face but most of the Kansas City boy's hard uppercuts or hard punches missed entirely or rolled off Lamson's head. The first nine rounds showed very little difference in the two men, show ing only a difference in their styles of fighting. The two heavies fell Into the clinches time and again and in these clinches did a great deal of in fighting. This work began to tell in the ninth round and in the final whirl both men were staggering. They fell Into numerous clinches in the final whirl but neither had In reserve a kavo punch while either looked like a fit subject for an easy sleep wbif fer. The smashing attack of Lamson wore him down until he did not have a hard smash left in either hand while Walker had received the brunt of the attack and was worn out in the last round. The two were in a clinch when the final gong sounded. Lamson broke the knuckle in his third finger on the right hand in the second round of the battle, according to his manager, Billy Hale, who had the hand examined after the battle. The huge Indian's punch was all in his left hand while he used his right for his infighting. The hard hitting of the Indian lessened in the last few rounds when his hand began to pain soverely. Dean Defeats Wheslock. Frankle Dean, Kansas City light weight, won a decision over 'Kid Wheelock of Lincoln in their ten round setto in the semi - finals. The speedy Kansas City lad was carrying the battle to Wheelock from the start and in the last round had Wheelock on the defensive all of the time. Wheelock was game clear thru and used his science to the best advan tage he rould but the smashing at tack of the tiny southerner broke down his guard and allowed drive af ter drive to get to him. Dean was on the 1923 season. The University of California crew last year won a reputation for itself at eastern races. The greatest honor ever won by a Stanford crew went to the 1915 eight, which took second place to Cornell in the Poughkeepsie regatta, after In adequate practice on the Hudson fol lowing a hard trans - continental trip. Stanford lost by half a length. The coxwain, Johnny Goodman,, kept his crew rowing on for some distance, un aware that they had crossed the finish. The Stanford shell was gaining on the Ithacans at the close. Following the rafce the Cornell men col lapsed in their boat, while the husky Stanfordites turned their boat around and rowed four miles back, up the riverhaving no launch. The trip broke tho crew. They had to "hock" their shell to get transportation back to the Pacific coast One thing is certain, however. If Stanford returns to crew again, the sport will be adequately financed, and all the necessary equipment, much of which waa lacking in the past, will be obtained.

He appeared to be all in in the final round and staged a smashing attack that ended in a clinch which was on when the gong sounded.

In this number of en trants are many of the best athletes of the country, several of them hav ing been abroad with the Olympic team. Athletic Director R. B. McCandless of Wesleyan University feela that Coach Speer of Pera baa 'done him wrong by not matching the Bobcats cagers against the Coyote team. Coach McCandless stated Tuesday. "Some surprise is felt in Wesleyan circle in view of Coach SpeeVa statement that the Wesleyan athletic authorities refused to schedule with hira earlier in the season, and also in view of Coach Speer's conduct on the Wesleyan athletic field and campus in the fall ef 1920, during football season. At the close of the Peru - Wes - levan football jzame in 1920 in which Peru was defeated 43 - 0, Coach Speer made several statements regarding Wesleyan and Wesleyan athletes which wero very . uncomplimentary. And among other statements which he made, he stated that he was thru with Wesleyan and would never meet them again in athletic irporU." The Coyotes are very anxious to take on the Peruvian five in a cage clash, believing that the Bobcats would not be able to hold out as cham pions of the conference If such a match weT staged. The Peruviana, however, show no Indications of attempting to meet Wesleyan. Speak ing of Coach S peer's action. Coach McCandless said: It is also surprising. In view of the fact that Mr - Speer himself gave quite a lengthy talk at the conference meeting December 10, 1921 in coadem nation of schools which try to schedule Just enough games to get away with a lucky championship, that it should be he who attempts to do just that same thing in basketball, scheduling only with five schools fof the season and then when one of these waa forced to cancel for the sea son, attempt to claim two games on forfeit, and falling in this, a t the eleventh hour, so to speak, ho ached uled a game with Tork College February 25 to be played February 27 on the Peru floor. Wesleyan would have been his logical contenders if he actually wanted to win an undisputed championship since York college la tied for the cel lar position in the conference, Mr. 8peer states that in the event of Wesleyan's challenge to a game or aeries of games after the season that they would probably refuse because they are content to rest on their laurels. As to the above Wesleyan believes that laurela are only worth while by gaining victories over lead - era rather than the avoidance of the same." Coach Speer will be forced either to refuse or to accept a challenge to meet the Coyote five in a post season game. Coach McCandless claims that the Pent team has met but half of the conference teams and these teams practically all easy money. Speaking of challenging Peru he said: "When the season closes, the way schedules now stand, Peru will have met five college teams in the conference and won nine games, whereas Wesleyan has already won eleven games, two more than the Bobcats will have played and we have three more conference games yet to play, having met every team In the conference except Peru. Wesleyan's brand of sportsmanship will not allow its athletic teams to rest on laurels but Is open at all times to meet any and ell logical contenders for a championship. . The athletic management of Wesleyan therefore publicly challenges Peru's claim to a basketball cham - Dlonshiu until they shall have but that since he included himself in the charge he felt frt - e to make it and back it up if necessary. He also said that some colleges were on the ( . . . . ... a ... . art l a ..... a. at a I wrong iraca. roinung out, uiai a winning football team makes or breaks a football coach, he added that unless a coach delivered a winner he usually found himself out of a job after two years. Gil Doblte, of Cornell, refused to concur in Jones' theory, stating that he fonnd nearly all coaches honestly trying to develop teams. The meeting was held for the purpose of getting some sua gestions for the rules committee. DEFEAT THE HUSKER BASKETBALL TEAM 29 TO 15. !De Moines Cagestert Prove Too Fast for the Local Five in Game Tuesday Night Pitcher Al. Mamaux of the Brooklyn Dodgers, does not believe in witchcraft or other antiquated stuff, but At. does believe he is going to have the greatest season of hhs career this year. Mamaux reported to some New York frieads that he never passed a better winter than this one and on a number of occasions he has dreamed that he waa doing sensational work on the diamond. Mamaux adds that hla dreams have an uncanny way of working out in detail. Al. has been nursing a lame arm for two years but this year he underwent treatment and then took a long rest, just as advised by a physician. He says he hopes to return to Brooklyn with a good arm and a chance to show that he is far from being thru aa a major leaguer. TO LAY OUT NEW GOLF COURSE Nebraska City Club Considers Buying Forty - Acre Tract NEBRASKA CITY. Neb., March 1 Directors of the golf club met last night to discuss the location of their new golf course. The Brower forty acre tract waa given much considera tion. It has a great many advantages over the piece of land west of the cemetery, as it la within six blocks of paving, is on the King of Trails, and has several desirable hazards, a most necessary thing for a good golf course, The Brower heirs have made s proposition to the club which 'will permit the removal of some of the trees and which includes a reasonable ground rent. The officers elected at the meeting are: W. S. Cornutt, president; Frank Schwake, vice president; J. H. Sweet, secretary: A. B. Wilson, treasurer W. 8. Corrutt, Paul Jessen and J.

' By Robert A. Donaldson. SAN FRANCISCO, March 1. The 1923 crew season may again see Stanford university on the water with a shell. The Palo Alto institution, whose aquatic prowess became famous a decade ago, abandoned crew as a sport in 1919 because of difficulties in financing the sport, which takes a ptI large outlay for the equipment and I. . . j j I trips, ana is pracucauy uevuiu ui gate receipts. By a vote of the students in that year the money which would have been spent for crew was diverted to the building of a basketball pavilion, recently completed, which is declared to be the most modern in the country. With that project out ot the way and athletics well financed, owing to the fooLball crowds drawn to the newly completed stadium, which holds 65.000, the athletic authorities at the Cardinal institution are considering reviving the crew. It is expected that the 525.000 necessary to put the sport on its fet will be available by January 1, 1923. Stanford has unusual difficulties to overcome in practice. The boat - house is seven miles away on a slough of San Francisco bay at Redwood city. The present boathouse facilities are utterly insdequate, and many other changes will have to be made. During the years Stanford participated in the sport from 1910 to 1919, she gained a nation - wide reputation as the home of powerful eights. The return of Stanford to crew is expected to make two powerful con tenders at eastern regattas during Capital City Bowling Scores, The Windsor Cafe, Bootery and in the Capital City bowling league at Fleming's Jewels won games rolled the Lincoln alleys, Tuesday night.

SUPERIOR WINS A VICTORY Beatrice Fans Canvass Business Dis trict to Get $5,000 Pledges. BEATRICE, Neb., March 1. Indi cations at the close of the first day's canvassing for the baseball fund were most favorable, the committee headed by Harley Heffelflnger reported. The fans are endeavoring to raise $5,000 for the support of a state league team By permitting pledges to be paid in quarterly Installments they are sign Ing many subscribers who did not come in last fall, when $3,500 was tentatively pledged. Sentiment Is growing for a "Fans' Association," with a definite head to direct the actions of the local boosters. Some Beatrice sportsmen favor getting the backing of some smart baseball magnate and work the club under the same management that the Fairbury and Hastings dlubs are doing. The Nebraska cagesters met defeat at tlm hands of the fast Drake quintet Tuesday evening on the coliseum floor by a score of 29' to 15. The Drake five were going strong holding an eight - point lead at the end of the first half, the score being 17 to 9. Payaeur and Boelter were the stellar performers of the evening registering 1 and 10 points respectively. Ihese men covered the floor In good shape as well as being excellent goal shooters. Warren and Carman were individ ual point makers for Nebraska, each making points. Russell played a good guarding game for the lluskera The Nebraska lineup was changed several times but they were not able to overcome the lead that Drake had piled up against them. The game was slow and teamwork and basket shoot - ng was lacking on the part of Ne braska. The two guards for Drake held their opponents to very few short shots. forcing them to resort to long ones. Rlddlesbergt - r began the scoring when he registered a free throw in the first few seconds of Dlsy when a foul was called on Payseur. Payseur then dropped in a field goal and Warren followed close behind with another. This was the only time in the game that Nebraska held the lead, keeping it for just a few seconds. Payseur, Smith and Boelter ran the Drake score up to 10 points before the Huskers made another counter. Carman for Nebraska then made a perfect follow - in shot which netted them two more points. Drake then made three more points and Warren dribbled the full length of the floor, throwing a closeup basket. In the beginning of the second half Drake made two baskets and a free throw before the Huskers could get started. This is the second game that these two teams have played, Drake win ning from the Huskers two weeks ago on the Drake court by a score of 34 to 32. Captain Smith did not come up to his usual form in this game and was not able to account for a single point. The men who were substituted for Nebraska showed up well in team work.
