Two Interesting Games Played With Pro
fessionals. University Boys are
Beaton, but Not Dis
couraged. Captain Boll's mon took a biace yes
terday and held the Omaha men down
to a score of 10 to 4. In spite of the
drizzling rain that fell throughout the
game, the playing of the 'varsity boys
was decidedly better than the day be
fore and the errors less numerous
Gaines and Raymond distinguished
themselves by making home runs. De
Putron made the best runs, getting to
third three times, and to second the
fourth. Gaines and Lentherby did the
pitching, both doing effective work.
Eight men were struck out, seven al
lowed hits and five given their base on

Several bad ,rors on the part of the
'varsity team caused its defeat Mon
day at the hands of the Omaha
leaguers. The first game of the sea
son was a disappointment to many,
who expected the 'varsity to hold their
opponents down to a smaller score.
Do Putron's work In the field Is de
serving of special mention, as Is also
Rhodes' at shortstop. Townsend
pitched good ball the first five innings,
holding the visitors down to one safe
hit. His place was taken by Thomson
in Uie sixth inning. The line-up:
The first regular meeting of the ten
nis association for this season was held
in old chnpel Monday afternoon. Con
sidering the size of the association
membership, a fairly good representa
tion was present.
A report was made by Manager
Farnsworth of last year as to the con
dition of the association, its needs and
prospects. A general diseusslon of the
opening season was indulged In. Plans
were mapped out for the guidance of
the association this year. Owing to
the small, limited membership of the
association, it has been more or less
difficult to meet expenses, especially in
the case of tournaments with other In
stitutions. The following officers were elected
for this year:
President, Robt. T. Hill.
Vice president, W. G. Hlltner.
Secretary-treasurer, 13. P. Tyner.
Manager, Guy M. Peters.

Speaks About tho Boor War, and the
Outcome. Mr. and Mrs. Bob.
Burdetto AddrosB tho
Chancellor Andrews spoke at the uni
versity yesterday upon the probable
outcome of the Boer war. The first re
sult to be noticed, he Baid. was the
unfavorable condition In the Internal
politics of England. There Is a great
political chasm in English life. As
a rule, the differences of opinion In
that country are concerning things
about which honest men might have
different views, and aro so recognized
by the disagreeing factions themselves.
But now many liberals, and among
them some of the most powerful think
ers of the country, believe that the gov
ernment is acting criminally against
all the cherished principles of British
realization of his hopon. The Dutch
element will gradually predominate In
tho colonies and tho antl-Britlshvsentl-
ment will increase. The political powcr
will bo Dutch In sentiment and tho
memory of tho war will go far toward
making It more so. Some future strug
gle for Independence may result In a
United Stntes of South Africa.
There will arise, furthermore, a
shaken sense of loyalty In BrltlBh col
onies outside of South Africa. The
colonial troops came forward nobly be
side the English-born soldiers, but tho
war has shaken tholr faith. It has al
ways been the boast of the English
man that the freo colonies need not
belong to the power of Groat Britain If
they did not wIbIi, that they were only
bound by ties of love. But tho spirit
of tho Boer war has been coercion of
a free people alleged to bo in a remote
way a British colony, A new and less
happy aspect of the relation between
themselves and England has been, pre
sented to other colonies.

approval of tho athletic board, the elec
tion of Mr. Peters by the association
will have to be approved before he can
assume his full duties.
A committee was appointed by the
president to reconstruct the old con
stitution and formulate some amend
ments. The meeting was adjourned to
meet Wednesday afternoon at 1 o'clock.
The senior prom, committee this
year proposes to break away from tho
method-whlch has become customary
of late of conducting university social
affairs primarily for tho not proceeds.
The chief aim of . tho committee is to
give an enjoyable party, and to that end
no expense is spared to provide for
tho guests everything that goes to
make a baccessful promenade. The
proceeds are secondary consideration
and it is not expected to make any
fortune at tho expense of the guests.
No one vwlll bo able to feel that ho has
not had his money's worth. A good
crowd and a good time are expected.
Football Manager Engle met Mana
ger McCutcheon of Iowa In Omaha re
cently and negotiations were opened up
for a game for next year between the
two Institutions.
Manager McCutheon stated that since
Iowa would not play Grinnel on No
vember 15, there might be a possibility
of arranging a game with Nebraska.
The latter, on the other hand, is sched
uled to play Knox college on that
date. The .manager of the Iowa team
suggested that it might bo arranged
with Knox college to defer the game,
give It up entirely or let Iowa play bar
at an open date.
Insofar as the Grinnell game was to
be played at Iowa City, the game of
the two larger institutions would, In
case of proper understanding, bo played
at that place. These negotiations are
entirely unofficial and propositions will
be submitted to both athletic boards
for consideration.
A loss of prestige on the part of
Great Britain will follow. She has al
ways been f oared, If not loved, but now
she will be despised; she has not per
formed many brilliant feats In the
present war. The rank and file of Brit
ish soldiers have done nobly, as they
always have done; uiey have never
fought better than In South Africa, go
ing to their death there with charac
teristic intrepidity. But England is
unfortunate in her generals. She has
lost vantage ground In important parts
of the world. Many European nations 1 0f Woman'B life.

way that would be difficult; to Indict
Tho presence of Mr. and Mrs. Bur
dette at convocation last Monday
morning was the cause for an unually
large attendance. Frequent bursts of
laughter and rounds of applause
showed that tho speakers had mot an
appreciative audience. Mrs. Burdetto
expressed herself as highly pleased
over the presenco of so many co-eds
In the university, and said that she
sincerely hoped that the University of
Nebraska would nover see fit to draw
the line on co-education.
Inasmuch as the ultimate place of
woman Is wifehood, said Mrs. Burdetto,
there is lio reason why young men and
women should rtot Bpond their college
days together; yet, at tho same tlmo,
the young women should bear in mind
that in later life they will hold a place
far different from the present one, one
distinctly their own. After all, tho
work at college is merely character
building and unless higher Ideals are
formed all Is lost.
Mrs. Burdetto l'urthor reminded the
young women that home is the center
Yet, since it is not
I man's limit, neither should It bo
1 woman's. Successful home keeping is
either after or during tho war as a the hlghe8t ideal for both man and
woman. The preservation of the homo
means good citizenship and govorn-
breech of neutrality. Russia has im
proved the opportunity to advance her
outposts. Russia has been interested 1 m;n
in the southern as well as the extreme
eastern part of Asia, advancing toward
the head waters of the .Persian gulf.
And other countries, among them Ger
many, are endeavoring to reach that
same Interesting body of water. Great
Britain is likely to lose considerable
influence and power in Asia.
Inere is little doubt that Great
Britain fi ultimately conquer in the
Immediate contest. It isn't the nature
of Great Britain to begin- a work and
not finish it. But that will not be the
final end of tho difficulty. The Boer

Mr. Burdette'Sjj-enown as a speaker
was enough to bring forth a hearty ap
plause at his very first words. Self
confidence and belief wore tho words
which he took for Ills subject. Noth
ing is possible, hftfsald, to him who
does not believe, nut to him who does
believe all things will come in their
turn. As nti instance of self-confidence
Mr. Burdetto mentioned Anson, the
great baseball team captain, who
never knew defeat Confidence, faith
and courage, said the speaker, are tho
three great essentials of life and he
who possesses theso will always find
that he will always succeed.
