This was made public by athletic as-
sociation authorities yesterday in con-
nection with a dispatch published un-
der a Lincoln date line in one of the
Chicago dailies. The dispatch is to
the effect that the Nebraska athletic
authorities have rejected the Michigan
offer of a football game, insisting that
there be a home and home agreement
for alternate years. The article reads
"Terms proposed by Michigan for a
football game with Nebraska at Ann
Arbor, Oct. 27, were discussed at a
special meeting of the university ath-
letic board, but the contract was not
approved. Negotiations will be con-
tinued. Nebraska insists there be a
home and home agreement for alter-
nate years. Michigan has indicated
unwillingness to enter into such a con-
tract, but there has been no absolute
According to Michigan authorities
the insistance on the part of Nebraska
upon a two-year contract calling for
alternating dates cannot be conceded.
Only a one-year agreement stipulating
the game to be held in Ann Arbor is
offered. Whether Nebraska will con-
sent to such. an arranement is prob-
The proposed date as stated by the
Lincoln wire, Oct. 27, corresponds very
nearly to the date of the M. A. C. game
last season, which came on Oct. 21.
This date on the 1917 schedule might
mean the first of Michigan's big games.
Nebraska generally puts out a fairly
strong team ana such a contest, if ar-
ranged, would be a good start toward
the large end of the season and also a
good drawing card in itself as an in-
itial battle with the big opponents.
HOCKEY, SEASON OPENS

Although the opening of the hockey
season is booked for tonight the regu-

until after the examination period.
The game between the junior engin-
eers and the dentists which will be
part of the carnival of the athletic de-
partment of the Women's league at

game. Mr. Rand of the intramural de-
partment of the Athletic association
made a statement to the effect that

At the meeting of hockey managers
held in the Athletic association of-
fices yesterday afternoon there was
some discussion as to whether a man-
ager should be permitted to choose a
team from more than one class in his
department. This has been the prac-
tice in the past and in several cases
teams have been made up of men from
all four classes in a department. The
smaller colleges suffered through
this proceeding since they had a

Minnesota Girls in Hockey Tourney
Minneapolis, Jan. 15.-Co-eds of the
University of Minnesota will partici-
pate in a hockey tournament at the
end of the season, the first event of
thi's character in the history of the
university. Four teams of girl stu-
dents, one for each class, will be or-

their men. The intramural director

lowing shall avail themselvxes o op-

other colleges will be permitted to
draw from two classes only.
All entries for the class tournament

Where Are Those

Rowe States That ness fsBa l l
Appear at Once Teams -ulst

"Unless the fraternity and boardini
house basxetball teams want to bhy
their own basketballs, they've got to
stop appropriating those ori the athlet-
ic association and return such as are
These were the words of Floyd
Rowe director of inramural activ ities,
and the emphatic maniner in which he
voiced his sentiments left no obt as
to his intentions.
Seven basketballs disappeared .last
night and whether they were taken
thoughtlessly or with malice afore-
thought is the question confrontun
Mr. Rowe at the present instance. The
dlepartment of intramural activities
provided eleven balls for the *use of
the league at the beginning of tin
season and after last night's ga s
there were just four on hand. Rosey
Rowe stated yesterday that unless the
balls appeared at once, the teams
would be left to provide their own
and as these very valuable little ar-
ticles bring $7.50 each by the lime
some 60 odd teams have completed
their purchases the athletic stores in
Ann Arbor will be ready to decare
another dividend and dabble in Gen-
Rowe said that he hoped the balls
were merely taken through careless-
ness, in which case the sooner thca
are returned the better it will be for
all concerned. Certainly the league
authorities have done more than their
share in playing square with the teams
since they are not called upon to pro-
vide balls and caring for them is an
Last night there were four bals
available and as a result 50 men were
unable to get the required practiei,
passing before their games began.
This is a distinct handicap and on
that is entirely unnecessary.
"I hope I hear from all seven balls
by tonight," said Rowe, "and I hope
the boys have merely put them nz
their lockers waiting for the next
game, for we'd dislike to mae all
of the teams buy their own."
