TEAM GOES NORTH
Baseball flayers Leave on an Extended
Trip,-Hames to be Played with
Minnesota Friday and
The baseball team left yesterday en
route far Minneapolis, whore It will
play the Gophers on Friday and Sat
urday of this week. Today they play
the team at Cedar Rapids and tomor
row as a aide issue they will try their
strength with tho Decorah team.
Owing to the inclemency of the
weather the team was not tendered the
ovation at the train as wa expected
and only a few enthusiastic Bupportors
bade them God-sped. Shinier, the
freshman right fielder, has been obliged
to leave Behool because of the death
of his father and hiB place will be
taken by Spencer Cortelyou of football
and basketball fame. That "Cort" can
play ball of any description is apparent
to those who have watched his career
in the university and although his rec
ord is baseball 1b still to be made, it 1b
unnecessary to stato that when it is
up to him "Cort" will always be there.
He is a sure and Bteady player and
much can bo expected of him. The
other players who go on this trip
are Captain Bell, Do Putron, Hood,
Raymond, Rhodes, Doane, Bender,
Gaines, Townsend and Letherby.
Captain Bell is sure of victory at De
borah, and although the Cedar Rapids
team is a professional one, it Is ex
pected that the 'varsity boys will show
them a few of the things that con-1
vinccd the Omaha league that college !
men could play ball. !

competent to speak. Chancellor An

did the kind of training Nebraska's
Colorado team had gone through, he
was confident the team would discuss
the municipal question as effectively
as the average congressman. In that
opinion Governor Savage, in a let

PRESIDENT DROPPERS SPEAKS.
President Droppers' address to the
students yesterday was shortened by
his having to leave on an early train.
The brevity, however, was made up for
Mr Droppers chose a rathor old
theme Success hut handled It In a
new way. Tho progress of th6 United
States, he declared, will depend upon
the peoplo west of the Mississippi; and
so the ideals of tho western student
are of infinite Importance. Tho avor
ago student calculates to win success
by a single effort, by wit and clever
ness, but he will be mistaken. It re
quires Industry and pcraovorance. Nor
is industry all. Honor must bo ob
served, and uprightness maintained.
The great need of American people,
the speaker thought, Ib more light
spiritedneeB. They look upon life alto
gether toseriously. It appears to them
as a grind with no pleasurable exper
iences. Mr. Droppers commended tho
spirit of athletics in college, becauso it
lightens the weight of responsibility
and duty. And so, these three quali
ties InduBtry, honor and good spirits
arc to bo cultivated by the ntudent
who hopes for a good measure of suc
cess. REV. HODGE AT CHAPEL.
Rev. Dr. Hodge of Philadelphia, sec
retary of the board or education pf the
Presbyterian church, addressed the stu
dents at convocation Monday.
Rev. Hodge emphasized tho fact that
the Resurrection of UhrlBt is of yltal
Importance to all men, becauso upon
It rests the hopes of the future of hu
manity. He commended to tho stu
dents especially a careful Investigation
of tho Resurrection. Tho studont
ought to study the factB connected with
that most important event because ho
is preparing himself for a future And
such preparation should bo completo
in every respect To live nly one year
after becoming fitted for' life Is worth
something; but to continue llfo
through eternity is worth vastly more.
A fine distinction was drawn be
tween honor and usefulness. To illus
trate, the speaker used the proverb of
the price of charcoal and the diamond,
which arc two forms of tho Bamo sub
stance. The charcoal wished to be
placed In the king's crown, while tho
diamond, not particular as to Its posi
tion, wished only to become useful.
The price of charcoal realized Its am
bition but was immediately plucked
from the crown and replaced by tho
diamond. So In life, mere usefulness
has little valuo without honor; and
that honor comes through Christianity.
If the young man wlshos to become
useful, he should be willing to work
when there is need.
Mr. Hodgo spoke of tho broad field
for willing workers In the ministry,
and the great demand for young men
both at homo and abroad. Th,ere was
great excitement during the civil war,
he said, when Lincoln called for hund
reds of thousands of volunteers to pre
serve tho union; but today tho call is
oven greater and the cause Is of deeper
Importance. The promise of a carreer
In the ministry, tho speaker thought,
ought to bo alluring, for tho minister
works on the side that always wine.
