Nobraska Gets a Unanimous Verdict at
Columbia. Judges Deoide
the Oaae in One
(Columbia, Mo., May 8. (Special.)
Ncbraskn was given unanimous verdict
in one minute. 1 he contest was a
whirlwind victor' from the start. The
Nebraska team did superb debating,
the lest, the professors say. they have
heard here in years. Missouri's ease
ivrts even more completely ' annihilated
than was that of Colorado or Kansas.
The team will arrive in Lincoln Satur
day evening at 5:4. V
NORTH WESTERN WINS.
Word received previous to going to
press last night was to the effect that
Nebraska had met defeat at the hands
of Northwestern by the score of 11-3.
No particulars were obtainable
Knox College is numbered among
the vanquished. Gaines is responsible
for a great deal of the blame, and
the failure of the Illinois people to
get on to IiIb scientific handling of the
ball amounts. for the easy score of 10-0.,
The b,oya were all in the game. Hood
and Rhodes receiving special mention
for bravery in battle. Gaines received
excellent support and the Cornhuskers
have only one error against them. Ne
braska made eleven hits against two
of the Galesburg people.
Today they will play Purdue.
and the week will end for them with
a struggle at Notre Dame. These three
games are counted the. hardest of the
trip, and it is feared that Nebraska
will perhaps meet her equal in the
trio. Townsend pitched yesterday's
game, Ietheby will go in the box at
Purdue, and Gaines will again come
into service at Notre Dame.
Notre Dame is considered the most
formidable antagonist of all, and for
live years Nebraska has been unsuc
cessful in the games with her. Vic
tory there this year means much to
the team, and the result of Saturday's
game will be eagerly looked forward
DUAL MEET WITH DOANE.
The university track will make a
trip to Crete tomorrow where it 'will
enter a dual meet with Doane college.
Manager Halght of the Doane team
was in the city yesterday and ' made
arrangements with Manager Clinton.
The meet Is somewhat unexpected, and
was decided on just at yesterday's con
ference. It seems that the Wesleyan
track team was to have met Doane
tomorrow, but owing to the fact that
track athletics have not been taken
up with a great deal of spirit at Wes
leyan, it was decided that no team of
sufficient .Btrencth could be taken
along. f Manager Halght of Doane then!

Clinton thinks that this will be a
splendid chance to see what the team
will be able to do. The team will

The long-looked-for Is soon to he
here. The managers of the Senior
Class Book announce that the book
will be out next week without fall,
and that in a short while the uneasi

among the seniors regarding their
write-up will be overcome.
No expense has been spared to make
the Senior Class Book worth of the
class of which i,t is a fitting souvenir.

Interest In the game of tennis has
been revived In Nebraska this year,
and the result Is a series of very close
and Interesting games which are for
the purpose of deciding who shall com
pete with Kansas.
The tournament began Wednesday
noon, and nil but the finals wore ter
minated by G o'clock last night. As
a rule the games were close and the
results very satisfactory.
The management waB very success
ful in obtaining n good list of prizes to
hang up, and the result has been to
draw out men who, ns a rule, do not
play in tho regular games. The Oirard
Cycle company Iibb offered as a prize
a first-class phonograph; Wilson &
Hall, a Kim racquet; H. E. Sidles, a
Davis racquet, and O. E. Rector, two
books for the soda fountain. These
are offered bb prizes in the order
The preliminary icsults so far aro
as follows: Tynor won off Wright,
Peterson won off Baird, Tyuer off Pet
erson; Huntington won from Hubbell,
Fallor from Peters, Fallor from Hunt
ington; Farnsworth won from Math
ews, Perslnger from Hoar, Farusworth
from PciBlnger; Huse won from Swee
lcy, Car from Golden, Huse from Carr.
Tyner and Fallor will play their semi
finals this morning.
This afternoon at 3 o'clock the 'fin
als will be played between Farnsworth
and the winner of the Tyner-Fnllor
contest of the morning. This contest
will undoubtedly be the game of the
season, excepting the games with Kan
sas. Fallor conies from Iowa, where
he holds records ln tennis. Tyner
has been establishing his record as a
player for the last two seasons. Farns
worth and his playing need no iptro
duction to the university, an all are
familiar with his work. Tennis enthu
siasts wlll do well then to be out and
see the games in the afternoon.
So far the dates for the contest with
Kansas have not been set, but they
will be known within a few days. The
winners in the singles will be the
players in the doubles. Last year Ne
braska was beaten by Kansas In two.
out of three events, and this year hose
defeats will be made good if possible.
Captain Hall has selected Miss Ruth
Wilson as sponsor for Company A.
This is something entirely new in uni
versity military circles, though it is a
custom which has long been estab
lished in eastern military schools.
Delta Ta Delta and Delta Upsilon
played a match game of ball yesterday
afternoon ln which the latter came off
victorious with a score of 9-8. The
game was resplendant will brilliant
plays, and caused much merriment
among the spectators.
