Ray Chase contacted Edward Nicholson to find out what became of funds made available from a post-season charitable game between the University of Minnesota and Ohio State University. The funds were sent to the now deceased Governor Floyd Olson. Chase was on the search for misuse of the money. These events were the subject of a story in the St. Paul Dispatch, a local newspaper.
Rather than Chase going to the head of athletics, Nicholson found out the information for him immediately. He made no comment beyond giving him the information.
