Jayhawkers Arrive and are Given an Ex
planation of Ball-Playing.
Nebraska 'Scores
at Will.
The Nebraska bell-rlngere practiced
i little Tag-time on the mighty men
from Kansas yesterday nnd showed
them how to play ball in a game that
resulted in a score of 25 to 8 in favor
of the university players.
The game was an easy one from
start to finish and the way they land
ed on the Kansas big man who of
ficiated in the box was a caution. Like
the' famous Siamese twins, the pitcher
was unable to do anything except by
the help of his brother, who presided
behind him, and as Umpire Maloney
was not disposed to show any favorit
ism, Allphln was charitable enough to
grant the Nebraska men some twenty
odd hits. The scores the Kansas men
did make were the result of occasional
good hits and that they scored at all
wbb not Nebraska's fault.
The bpys all did good work at the
bat, hitting everything that came
along, knocking frequent two and
three-baggers and occasionally put
ting in a home run for a novelty.
Hood started the hitting by knock
ing out a liner that was fumbled, and
then the fireworks began. Bell and
Rhodes followed with safe hits; Ben
der went to first on an error. Gaines
made another hit and Townsend raised
a little excitement by knocking out
a home run! De Putron followed with
a hit, and then the boys decided that
they had done enough work for a
while and De Putron, Raymond and
Letherby went out, however, not be
fore the other six had crossed the
home plate. The work In the other
Innings was similar, only in the fifth
inning did the Kansas men hold them
down to a zero. In the same Inning
the Jayhawkers took a brace and made
four successive hits that allowed three
men to score.
The work of some of the Kansas
men wbb poor to say the least, and one
would-be player has five errors to hls
credit. Letherby threw tho ball for
Nebraska and put up hlB usual swift
and steady game. The other men
played with their customary steadiness
and to say that good ball was played
merely describes the work of each in
dividual man. Rhodes made a sensa
tional slide that tore a big hole In his
nice new trousers, but the Jayhawkers
didn't even have a chance to dirty their
pretty red suits.
There is every reason to believe that
the game tomorrow will not be a repe
tltton of today's exhibition and BmSIS?

Glass of 19U2 Oelobrato tho Annual
"Sneak Day."--Large Party
Leaves tbo Oity on a
May Fionio.
Amid the flourish of banners and the
din of trumpets and hornH the seniors
secretly departed yesterday for Wood
lawn to celebrate the famous "sneak
day." For a number of years It has
been customary for the graduating
class to appropriate some day for a
general "sneak." Notwithstanding tho
fact that it 1b always expected to keep
the day secret, boretofore It has gen
erally been known days before. This
year, however, the seniors planned Its
work so carefully and had every detail
so well arranged that It was scarcely
known by a single person that they
were to depart yesterday. Not until
the absence of the seniors from the
campus and the music of the abbrevi
ated band at tho Btatlon told them,
were the unsuspecting Juniors nware
of what had actually happened.
At about nine o'clock the
seniors assembled at the Burlington
Btatlon. whore they had chartered a
train to take them to the beautiful pic
nic grounds at Woodlawn. By char
tering the train they were able to ar
rive at their destination much earlier
, and enJoy more of the mornlng and to
return at their pleasure. A small Blzed
band, Including the principal musical
Instruments, was made up from the
class. The band furnished music dur
ing the day besides serenading the
people along the road.
Arriving at Woodlawn, a beautiful
picnic ground was soon found, where
they at once settled down to enjoy life
as only seniors could do. It was ex
pected that the train following the spe
cial would bring a crowd of juniors.
In this, however, the seniors were dis
appointed, for they fully Intended to
show the juniors (if they came) how
well they could be treated. The ab
sence of any Interference by the Juniors
d.d not cause them to enjoy themselves
any the less. All kinds of frolics were
indulged In during the morning hour.
bnortiy arter noon the happy Benlors
Bat down to an elegant dinner, which
had been prepared by the young ladles
of the class, with a view to making it
one that has never before been
equalled. All the delicacies which the
greatest epicure could wish for had
been brought by tho thoughtful girls.
Yesterday being not only "sneak
day," but also May day, the seniors
decided to have a May queen and the
class was as one in its decision as to
who should bo the proud wearer of
the crown. Immediately after the din
ner had been served, President Harbor
crowned Mistr Hannah Eillsbury queen
of the day fortie' excellent service she
had rendered to the class by her un
tiring efforts in securing refreshments.
After this coremony hnd boon per
formed, Mr. Harbor called upon vari
ous mombers of tho clnsa to respond
with Bhort speeches. These proved to
be very amusing, bolng given In a
lighter vein and with considerable
skill by the different speakers. The
young ladles were not at all back
ward In responding with short talks.
As Boon as tho class had recovored
sufficiently from the dinner, tho mem
bers nt once began to have a good
time. The principal attractions were
the ball games In which not only tho
young men took part, but alBo the
ladles. One Interesting game wae
played between two teams headed by
Captain Dirks and Captain Clinton.
After an exciting contest, Herr Dirks
and his burghora defeated tho Clinton
mon by a score of 9 to 8. Tho contor
of attraction In thlB lino, however, waB
a gamo between a team composed of
girls and a team of the young mon.
The former, In an exceedingly laugha
ble contest, defeated the latter by a
score of 17 to 8. It might be said In
Justice to the vanquished ones that the
ladles were given a slight advantage
In order to equalize tho two teamB.
Inasmuch as not all present could
Indulge In this sport, other forms of
amusements were constantly In pro
gress. Tho games over, all Joined In a
general good time. MubIo though not'
strictly classic was furnished during
the whole day. When the sun became
too warm tho merry-makers Seated
themselves on the grass and listened
to the "senior band," and sang songs
In accompaniment.
About half past five the special train
arrived at Woodlawn to take tho sen
iors homo. It was deemed best not to
stay any later, as a number had to re
turn early. The train arrived In town
shortly before six and the happy son-,
lors marched in a bocy to tho univer
sity, where they showed that thoy had
not entirely exhausted their strength

been undertaken. It was entirely void.!
