Varsity Team BhowR
The last game of the series with the
Omaha league was played on tho ball
grounds Wednesday afternoon before n
fair-sized crowd of enthusiastic sup
porters of the 'varsity nine. Nine In
nings of hard playing resulted In a
score of 0 to 2 in favor of the Omaha
men. Captain Bell's men put up a
hard fight and played good ball, and
although they were defeated, it was
only because they were pitted against
professional players. Errors wero rare
and the Improvement made In the play
ing of the team since the first game
may be taken as a fair indication of
what may be expected in tho future.
Supporters of the scarlet and cream
should not make the mistake of think
ing that three successive defeats at the
hands of the league team means that
the university does not have a good
ball team.
On the contrary. Captain Bell has
a team that any university aggregation
In the west will have difficulty in de
feating. The Omaha team was not
brought here for the purpose of de
termining which team waB the su
perior, but the contests were looked
upon merely as practice games, both
by Omaha and the 'varsity, and as
such they have been a great success.
Our most competent men have been
tried in their various positions and
there haa been an excellent opportunity
to determine who arc the best men,
nnd tho line-up from now on will be
bnsed principally upon the showing

The Engineering society held its
regular meeting Wednesday evening.
Hugh Wilson was the speaker of the
evening and spoke on "Railroading as
a Profession for College Mon." Mr.
WilBon began his remarks by giving
brlofly tho organization of a railroad
and a general idea of tho work of tho
different officers. He quoted tho defini
tion of engineering as tho "ability to
make a dollar earn the most money,"
and showed where an engineering edu
cation would bo of ndvnntago in many
of the departments. Mr Wilson gave
examples showing the necessity for
close attention to details and tho econ
omy resulting therefrom. The neces
sity for originality and not becoming
a machine was strongly emphasized by
Mr. Wilson, and in conclusion ho snld
that tho problems In railroading wero
dally becoming of such a nature that
In order to meet them a higher edu
cation was fast becoming a necessity.
After this address, a short business
meeting (was held.
J C. Stevens has gone to Valentino.
The civil and mechanical engineer
ing departments are each organizing
a baseball team and It Is very prohablo
that a game will be played between
these in the near future.
Last Wednesday morning, during tho
convocation hour. Chancellor Andrews
spoke on the will of Cecil Rhodes. Tho
regents being In session during the
day were present and naturally the
president, E. von Forrell, was called
upon for a few remarks. Ho called tho
attention of the students to tho fact
that there was no necessity for find
ing immediate use for everything thnt
they studied, for it Is always best to
store up a reserve force, which will
Booner or later be called upon. Whort
the world makes a demand for men of
Intelligence and power. It haa alwayB
found him In tho student. Thoreforo
every hour devoted to study while In
school means so much more ability to
meet the requirements of the world at
Chancellor Andrews then spoke brief'
ly of the (will of Cecil Rhodes) which
he considered a novel idea. Tho grant
ng of fellowships to the different
states will have a very beneficial ef
fect. The conditions relating to tho
securing of fellowships, the chancellor
considered very admirable. The neces
sity 0 student approbation before a
candidate can obtain a fellowship- is of
especial value, since professors ar
prone to judgo a candidate t,oo narrow
ly according to, hja Intellect.
The will clearly showed, said the
chancellor, that' Mr. -If nodes undoubt
edly considered the English-speaking
people as tho most eminently fitted to
rule the affairs of the world. Chan
cellor Andrews was of the opinion,
however, that there were other nations
who deserve their sharo of apprecia
tion, one of whlph was Qe.rmanjr. .Un
due stress has been placed upon tho
importance of England, for the signs
of the times undoubtedly point to tho
United States as the1 futuro leader of
progress. While tbofellowshlps at Ox
ford will do a great deal for American
scholarship, yet it should noj. bo con
sidered that Oxford Is the scientific
center of the world, but rather Cambridge.
