to him the confidence and good will of
the bleachers. The line-up:

Up Well.
The Nebraska Indians can play ball,
but can't show the 'varsity anything,
as was quite evident at the game Sat
urday. Perhaps the game would have
been closer had it not been that the
redskins were handicapped by the loss
of their catcher. Roberts, in the first
inning. He had the misfortune to in
jure his shoulder while trying to slide
on second. Although seerely injured,
with the traditional Indian stoicism, he
attemptrd to hold his position, an act
which proved disastrous to his team,
and his place was taken by Raymond.
In the sixth inning a new pitcher went
into service for the redskins, and for a
while proved easy meat for the pale
faces, allowing them to make six scores
in the one inning.
The 'arslty boys all played ball, and
delighted their supporters by the fre
quency of their trips around the dia
mond. In the pitcher's 'box, "Zobe"
Townsend gave Green's men a few
lessons in the art of twirling the ball,
and succeeded In striking out eleven
men, a. lowing only one to walk.
"Twister" Bender, the "shaggy-haired
youth" who treated the Omaha men to
such a surprise, held his place behind
the bat, and played good ball all the
way through. An unfortunate fumble
allowed one man to get to first and
subsequently to make a score after he
had been struck out. "Bonnet" Hood
played his usual game at the bat. mak
ing four out of the thirteen scores,
but was denied an opportunity to dis
tinguish himself at third. Captain
Bell was also fortunate at the bat, and
had three scores to his credit. His
work in left field was good. Bobble
(laines made third by the combination
of a safe hit and a fumble by the left
fielder, but was unfortunate in knock
ing a number of flies to the fielders.
"Dusty" Rhodes won the admiration
of the crowd by a beautiful three-bagger
that started the work In the sixth
inning. His work at short was up to
its usual standard of excellence.
"Sticks" De Putron, the "sylph-like
Russian," distinguished himself by a
long run from the outfield, and with his
usual good eye, captured a fiy that
seemed apparently lost. His playing
in the outfield was faultless and with
out an error. "I key" Raymond held
down first In a creditable manner and
availed himself of every opportunity.
Shelmer, the new man in left field,
played a good game, with the exception
of a little ragged work at the first. A
successful two-bagger In the sf'xth in-

The second of Nebraska's Interstate
debates that with the University of
Kansas takes place next Friday even
ing, April 25, in Memorial hall. With
the whirlwind victory of Maxwell,
Kutcher and Cionln over Colorado two
weeks ago, by a piece of work that set
faculty and students talking of what
trained Nebraska students can do in
sheer debate, the Nebraska quartette
that goes against Kansas Friday night
finishes Its case today. Practice debate
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday even
ings will conclude the team's prepara
tion which began during the Christmas
That the Kansas-Nebraska battle
will be at least as hot as the Nebraska
Colorado combat, there is no doubt. In
deed it Is altogether likely that it will
be more fiercely waged. Whether or
not the audience will be treated to two
such sensational features as chance
gave Cronln to corner his opponent Is,
of course, uncertain, but the chances
are that it will.
Charles M. Bracelen, 1902, has been
appointed to reply to Kansas' first man.
J. C. Doubt, jr., 1903, will follow, and
Samuel C. Hawthorne, 1902, will get In
the flnnl direct blow. Mr. Bracelen
will close the debate with a ten-minute
speech In rebuttal.
Faculty and student Interest in this
second and last debate of the debates
to be held here this year Insures more
enthusiastic support of the team than
the Colorado team got. There were
about 500 people present at the Nebraska-Colorado
debate. Sales to date
of tickets (which may be had at the
chancellor's office, the "Co-op." and the
University Book Store) indicate a
crowd lhat will show at least that Ne
braska is after all not so far behind
other schools of her class as she has
been in Interest in intercollegiate con
tests of brains.
The university cadet band will again
treat the crowd to the best band music
In the state, and it Is expected Prof.
Wlllard Kimball will also render a
pipe-organ solo. Who will preside Is
not yet settled.
Not all of the judges are determined.
Kansas has selected Judge W. F. Hast
ings of Wilbur (a member of the su
preme court, and an alumnus of the
University of Chicago, '71) and the
Hon. W. D. McHugh (Cornell univer
sity), a leading Omaha attorney, late
partner of James M. Woolworth. Mr.
McHugh wrlteB, however, that he will
probably be unable to come on April
The University of Nebraska waH
especially honored in the apportion
ment of fellowships In Columbia uni
versity which were announced last
week. Three of the successful ones are
graduatos of Nebraska. They are John
L. Kind, Hal T. Beans and Charles A.
Turrell. Two of the appointees are
from the department of Germanic lan
guages, which fact reflects great credit
upon that department.
John L. Kind, to whom was awarded
the Carl Schurz fellowship for the study
of the German language and literature,
graduated from the university In 1899
and took his master's degree last year.
On his graduation he was given a fel
lowship In the German department
which he held for two years, re
linquishing It last fall to accept the
position of Instructor In German In the
Omaha high school. He was elected to
membership In Phi Beta Kappa at the
first election, at which five members of
the class were chosen. During his
graduate study here he made special in
vestigations In Sanskrit, Greek and
Latin comparative philology and the
old Germanic languages. It was his
work on his master's thesis which was
largely instrumental In gaining for him
the appointment. His subject was
"Coined Compounds in Gothic," and
nis production was published In a re
el nt number of the Graduate Bulletin.
The fellowship which Mr. Kind will
hold was founded two years ago on
the anniveisary of the birth of Carl
Schurz, by the German-American citi
zens of New York city. A fund of $10,
000 was established, the Income from
which Is awarded biennially. The re
cipient may be reappointed onco for
excellence In work done. The holder
of the fellowship will study at Colum
bia unless permitted to pursue his In
vestigations abroad. The appointment
is considered a great honor and It was
competed for by most of the colleges In
the Lnlted States and a number from
Hal T. Beans, who received the fel
lowship In academic chemistry, gradu
ated from the university In 99. Mr.
Beans served for some time as under
Lraduate assistant In the department
of chemistry and upon his graduation
war awarded a scholarship In that de
partment. Before receiving his mas
ter's degree, which he obtained In 1900.
he was called to the University of
Idaho as adjunct professor In chem
istry. Mr. Beans was a member of
both the Phi Beta Kappa and Sigma
Xi societies.
Mr. Beans has done considerable
work in research and as a result hae
published, in joint authorship with
Samuel Avery of this institution,' a.
number of valuable papere. A new
method for the "Determination of
White Arsenic in Paris Green" has
been provlplonally adopted by a num
