Basket Ball Team Returns From
Kansas Aftor an Unsatisfac
tory Trip Misfortunes
at Every Turn
After a st mcwhat unsucccsssrul
trip though one not entirely Licking
in pleasant features, tho basketbal 1
team rotnrnccl from Topcka, Kansas,
last night. Of the three games play
ed the nntch with Kansas was the
only successful one. Had the team
not labored under serious handicaps
In each of these games, It Is very
probable that tho results would have
been quite different.
The team was unlortunate In fail
ing to carry enough substitutes "long.
For this reason too business manager
was onliged to play on one ot the
games though he was entirely out of
practice. Mr. Raymond who was un
able to accompany the team when it
left, failed to report later as was
expected. These facts together with
the Inability or Cortelyou, fie best
man on the team, to play In tho
last game placed the ,team
in poor condition to play baskotball.
The game with the Indians was
swift and hard. The Haskell men
played fast ball auci were constantly
In the gamo. Their playing was,
however, characterized by roughness.
Tho Held was not as good asajght be
desired for such a .game, there
being six posts on the floor which
made it ery hard for those unaccus
tomed to it to play as swift as usual.
In the gamo with Kansas, Hewitt
was unable to play and was therefore
substituted by Manager Mori ell who
has played but twico during the vear.
Handicapped as it was in this game,
the team succeeded in defeating tho
Jay Hawkers by a large score.
The match with Topcka resulted
in a victory for that team by the
scoro of f'2 to :t(i. In this game,
Cortelyou was compelled to retire on
account of sickness. The. loss of tho
best man on tho team was a serious one
for Nebraska and was without the
loast doubt the cause of the defeat.
Cortelyou attempted to play in tho
first half, going into tho game after
having been ill all ciay, but was
soon forced to retire. As no substitute
'' had boon taken along, time was call
ed In order to give Mr Morroll a
chauco to udorn hinielf with a suit
and outer the gamo. Tho absonco of
two of tho btst men on tho team
nia?lo it a linal victim to tho Tope
kans. '
Aslae from the defeats and tho
illness of two of tho players the trip
was a very ploasanb one. Tho men
aro free in their praise lor thoir
treatment whllo visiting the Indiana.
Thoy enjoyed their h ospitallty
from Friday evening until Monday
morning. On baturday night after
tho game with Kansas, Iho Indians
gave a banquet. The Nooraska and
Kansas teams as well as tho lattor's
rooters were present. Tho Indians
had an excellent band of thirty pieces
which furnished music during the
banquet. A very enjoyable time was
had and the trip will long
be remombered.
If satisfactory arrangements can
oe made. Topeka will play in Lincoln
in about two weeks. If a gamo can
be arranged with the city Y M C A
and tho Haskell Indians, the latter
team will also come In the near
One of tho most interesting games
or basketball that will be held
among tho class teams this year will
be played tonight In the armory, at
eight o'clock, between the sophomore
and Lincoln high school teams.
The sophomores have been very for
tunate in their games thus far and
do not intend to fall bohini their
record of not bolng beaten.
The team will bo somewhat handi
capped tliis time, however, on ac
count ot the absonco or Captain Mc
Cutcheon and the lack or an oppor
tunity to use tho gymnasium for
practice for the past rew days. The
sopohomorcH are, nevertheless
ccnlident that they can win from the
Lincoln high scluuil bojs.
Tho line up of the two teams Is
as follows: Sopomores. Forwards.
Myers, Elliot; Guards, McCuccheon
Capt. , Andreson; Center Newton and
Manning. High .school. Forwards,
Raymond, Walsh; Guards, Roll, Mat
son; center, Field. Captain. Manager
Myers ot the spohomoro team Is now
trying to schedule somo games with
teams out In the state in order that
the team may take a trip. It Is
hoped that games may be arranged
with some of tho following: Omaha
second Y M C A, Omaha High
School, Fremont Y M C A and York
('oil ego. Doano College has already
declined to accept a challenge.
The Engineering Annual is on the
road to success. Two very line artic
les have just been received -one from
D. C. Yates of the Homestake Min
ing Co., of South Dakota and the
other from Jos. Sargent of tho U. S.
Engineering Corps in Cuba. Mr.
Yates' article is on mining and as ho
been Intimately connected with
this kind of work, his articles will be
of groat value. It is technical and
aeals with somo of tho probloms Ren
countered by tho mining engineer.
Tho article written by Mr Sarcrent is
not so technical as the other, but is
of vital interest at this time, as It is
on tho sugar boot industry in Cuba.
Jur Sargent in his connection with
tho United States engineers, has had
occasion to. travel aver MioJlancL ex
tensively, and has observed ciosoly tho
methods employed In the manufacture
of sugar. Tho article will be profus
ely illustrated with views takon by
Mr Sargent himself and will prob
ably be the most "popular" article in
the annual.
