WIN AT OMAHA
Oreighton College Goes Down Before Cap
tain Bell's Men. A Hard Gamo
and a One-Bided Score.
Creighton went up against the real
thing Saturday and went down before
the prowess of the western champions
in a way that made the'r supporters
turn pale around the gills.
The best crowd that the bell-ringers
have encountered this season met tnem
on Creighton field and for a while the
prospect was ratner discouraging, but
they were equal to the occasion and at
the close of the ninth inning the score
stood 9 to 3 in favor of the champions.
It was a clean first-class collegiate
game all the way through and the 'var
sity put up their regular article of
snappy igorous ball with only two
priors against them
T'ip work was begun in the third
when Bender and Rhodes crossed the
home plate as a result of Crelghton's
cirors, and were followed by De Pu
tron in the fourth on a home run by
Raymond. Four more runs were re
coitlcd in the fifth and then the Omaha
men took a brace and held them down
until the eighth, when the final score
was made. Letheby in the box main
tained his reputation as a star pitcher,
striking out thirteen men, againBt five
by Welch, the Creighton man. Hood,
Calncs and Raymond managed the
stick in t,1ie proper manner, making a
specialty of home-runs, three-baggers
and two base hits. The line-up.

NEBRASKA DEFEATS KANSAS.
Kansas was worsted at the semi-annual
tennis meet with Nebraska Fri
day and Saturday. The Nebraskans
showed themselves the betters of the
Kansas men in every way. although the
latter are extremely good players. This
contest decides the championship be
tween the two states for this year.
Farnsworth, who beat his Kansas op
ponent, was arraigned against Fallor,
the other Nebraska winner, winning
the match, and thus the honors for
Nebraska for this year.
On Friday afternoon the singles were
played before a fair sized audience
about as many as a tennis game can
attract at the university. On Saturday
afternoon the doubles were played and
also the final hiatch to ascertain the
honors between Farnsworth and Fall
or. Sharrard, one of the Kansas men,
had played here before and his style
was fairly well known. He has an
easy way of playing, but he Is not so
sure on placing the ball as his oppo
nent. Feit8hans, the other Kansas
man, was a new contestant, ana nom
ing was known about his playing, but
Farnsworth managed to defeat him
easily In the singles. The long stroke
playing of Fallor was puzzling to the
Kansas representatives and he easily
drove the ball beyond reach when they
played too near the net. Farnsworth's
quick, Bure playing stood up well
against the rallies of his opponents.
The scores of the tournament were
