Successful Tour of Illinois, Indiana, Mis

Out of the Twolvo
Captain J. Hayes Bell and his band
of hardy warriors returned yesterday
morning with their belts loaded with
bloody scalps, after successfully main
taining the reputation of the scarlet
and cream for over two weeks. Never
before In the history of the University
of Nebraska has a baseball team of
llk merit been sent out from the
university, and the fans may well be
proud of the work done by Bell, Hood,
Rhodes, Gaines, Townsend, Letheby,
De Putron, Bender, Doane, Cortelyou
Every man did his work well, as a
look at the score card will testify.
Iowa, Purdue, Missouri and Kansas
have all forcibly realized that the corn
huskers can play ball.
Bender did the work behind the bat
on every occasion, with the exception
of the Highland Park game, where he
arrived too late to get into all the
game. The "flying Dutchman" is a
terror, when rigged up in his parapher
nalia and he certainly can hold on to
tho bajl when It comes his way. Leth
eby and Gaines pitched most of the
games, and showed some of the east
erners a few things about twirling the
ball that they never dreamed of. Town
send had hard luck in the Northwest
ern game and did not receive the sup
port due him. Ills work at second
and In right field was beyond reproach
and a pretty four-bagger In the St.
Marys game started the work for the
bell-ringers, and scored four for Ne
braska. Hood at third waB up to his
usual standard and gave a few surprise
parties to many a man hitting out in
his direction. "Bonnet" can play ball
and his throw to first is a phenomenon.
In the field De Putron played his
UBual ball all through the trip, and
caught everything coming his way.
"Jlmmle" Bell established a reputa
tion, aB a batter, and his work In left
field was beyond reproach. "Dusty"
Rhodes' work at short Is too, well and
favorably known to need other men
tion. Dusty is a wonder, and hangs
on to everything. Doane was laid out
in the first game with a cracked
thumb and was barred from other
work behind the bat. H1b work in
right field was good. Cortelyou played
good ball and got into the games with
hlB usual spirit. Raymond played first
as usual and with the exception of a
wild throw in the Kansas game, played
good ball. The following games were
played during the trip:
Highland Park 1, Nebraska G.
Iowa 2, Nebraska 7.
Knox 0, Nebraska 10.
Northwestern 11, Nebraska 3.
Purdue 5, Nebraska 8.
Notre Dame 2, Nebraska 0.
Missouri 1, Nebraska 6.
Kansas 5, Nebraska 3.
Kansas 0, Nebraska 6.
Washburn 3, Nebraska 12.
St. Marys 2, Nebraska 7.
Manhattan 6, Nebraska 15.
The next game on tho home grounds
will be played Wednesday afternoon
with Highland Park.
MANHATTAN AND ST. MARYS DE
FEATED. The Kansas supper bells pealed very
dolefully last Saturday night. Two of
her favored college reams had fallen
victims to the Invincible cornhuskers
and the sorrow In Manhattan and St.
Marys Is too deep for words to relate.
Seven to two are the words which ring
with such mournful tone at the latter
place, while fifteen to six bespeak the
agonies of the Manhattaners.
Letheby began after breakfast exer
cise by twirling the ball so fast that
the men from St. Marys did not know
whether they had had coffee or a some
what developed product of Kansas corn
for breakfast, so mysterious was the
flight of the sphere In Its passage from
the box to Bender. The game was
nevertheless an Interesting one, though
at no time was there anything to fear
from the opponents. letheby was
given excellent Biipport throughout the
game, though one of the scores which
St. Marys got was flue to an error.
Letheby, Bender and Gaines played
star ball throughout, while Mclnnery
for St. Marys did great work. The
score by Innings was:
Nebraska 0 2000110 37
St. Marys 0 000011002
Not at all wearied by the morning's
game, the Bell men arrived at Man
hattan, where the ball was at once set
in motion. Townsend was a little un
steady in the beginning and no small
amount of slugging was done. In the
first two innings the score stood four
to naught In favor of the Manhattan
ers, but Nebraska then began to play
ball and brought In six scores In the
third, which gave them a safe lead.
Townsend then held tho men to two
scores In the following Innings, while
Nebraska scored nine more, making
tho final scoro fifteen to six.
Hess, who used to twirl the ball for
Kansas university, acted in the same
capacity in this game, but was not
hard to find after tho first two innings,
ihe score by innings was:
Manhattan 3 1000010 16
Nebraska 00601061 115
Chicago university defeated Ihe
University of Michigan track team
Saturday by a score of 65 to 61. The
contest was very close throughout.
Both colleges scored seveto ilrsts and
seven seconds. The result was abided
by Chicago getting nine thirds to

The Interest of the afternoon cen
tered in the company competitive.
Long before the first company marched
out on the field the grandstand was
filled and the bleachers were uncom
fortably crowded. The audience was
very enthusiastic and repeatedly ap
plauded movements of exceptional
merit. The university band discoursed
martial music before the drill began
and between companies. A wagon pret
tily decorated with A colors and filled
with feminine admirers of company A
added to tho attractiveness of tho
scene. The young ladles in the wagon
were: Misses Whiting, Montgomery,
Casebeer, Deweese, Walker, Pearl
Archibald, Meyer, Garton, Shepherd,
Funke, Wilson, Harper, States, Du
mont, Shedd, Jennie Piper, Chadwlck
and Loomls. The young men of com

sion were: Messrs; Crooks, DaviB, Pol
lard, Sheldon, Forsyth, Lundln, Wil
son, Hall, Dlerks, Raymond, Groff,
Buckley, MorrlBon, Dumont, South
wlck, McGeahin, Montgomery and
Loomis. Mrs. Smoke and Mrs. Evans
acted as chaperones.
After the decision of the Judges was
given the battalion formed in a hollow
square and the winners received the
prizes. They wore presented by Misses
Cady, Wolgamot, Honeywell, Wilson,
Montgomery, Garten and Shepard.
Captain Hall was the recipient of a
sword, the gift of the men of com
The celebration which was held Fri
day night by the company was one of
tho most orderly affairs of Its kind
ever held. The company marched
about the streets, but nothing was
done to interfere in any way with the
personal or property rights of any one.
Saturday the walks of tho city about
the university were liberally decorated
with large Ds In commemoration of tho
TRACK TEAM DEFEATS DOANE.
Doane and the university wero tho
only Institutions represented In tho
track meet held Saturday on tho cam
pus. The university athletes won the
meet by a scoro of 68 to 40. Hastings
college sent several men to Lincoln,
but they did not formally enter the
contest. They were allowed to con
test In the hammer throw and the shot
put, but were not given places.
In three oventB tho records were
smashed. States did the 880 yard run
In 2 minutes 6 1-5 seconds. In tho
high Jump Fuhrer raised tho record ho
Lmade In the Doano meet to 5 feet 11
Inches. Kellogg made the pole vault
at 10 feet 7 Inches, which Is two Inches
better than his former record. Tho
general work of the university team
was good and deserves commendation.
Gaines came in from the baseball trip
in time to enter tho contest, and al
though not In training, did some good
work, especially In the Jumps.
Five institutions are in tho state as
sociation, but only three of these had
representatives in Lincoln Saturday.
York and Wesleyan did not entor.
Tho victory of the university pre
vents the trophy from going to Doano
permanently. The Doane team won

the trophy. Summaries:
