First and Second Teams Win
from Haskell and Baker.
The Nebraska girls' basket ball team
remains Undefeated, and Coach Pound
has reason to take great pride in her
tcjam of '03. The swift and plucky Has
kell Indians went down in defeat last
night at the hands of Nebraska, by the
overwhelming score of 42 to 8, The
second team took Baker University
Into camp to the tune of 22 to 1. About
three hundred people witnessed the
games. Coach Plank of the Haskell
team refereed both games In a very
satisfactory manner. This is the first
time a man has ever officiated here at
a girlB' game. But little cheering was
done for either side. The senior girls,
attired In their class gowns, ushered.
Baker brought nine people and 'Has
kell eight.
'The event was pronounced the finest
exhibition of its nature which over took
pjace In the gym. While both games
were one-sided, each had very fine fea
tures on both sides. Tho team work
and pool deliberation of the Indian
players brought out considerable ap
plause, as did also the plucky manner
in which they fought to the last. The
sensation of the other game was when
after time had boon called at the end.
of the game Miss Weley saved a shut
out for Baker by throwing a foul. Mlsa
Jansa made a wonderful record at for
ward, having 30 of the 42 points to her
credit Miss Everett made the most
points for the second team, throwing 4
goals. The Indian girls were all small,
and Nebraska had a great advantage In
height, as well as in the fact that our
court la ahout one-third larger than
Haskell's. The other two teams were
about evenly matched in- physique. The
'varsity made 21 points in each half,
and Haskell 4. The first half of the
game with Baker ended 14 to 0 in favor
of the second five. In tho second half
Baker tooR a decided brace and held
their opponents down to 8 points, but
the hall repeatedly refused to enter tho
basket for them. Nebraska threw 20
goals and Haskell 4. Tho second team
threw 10 goals and Baker none.

MIsb Everett found the basket from tho
side line. Nebraska fouled and Baker
missed the foul. Miss Ames soon
threw a pretty goal. Baker was fouled
Miss Shlnbur throw .the foul, and the
score stood 9 to Q. Some rooters
cheered Baker and the Methodists
braced, and It seemed for a few min
utes as If the tables would be turned;
but the plucky Nebraska guards would
not permit a goal. Miss Everett finally-
came to the rescue with another
goal. Baker fouled, And Miss Shinbar
added a point for the second Blx. Time
'was soon called and the score stood 14
0 for the 'varsity.

ket. The half ended 21 to 4 for Ne
braska. The other teams came on at once.
Baker had been far outclassed in the
first half, but now took a decided
brace. MIbs Bryan succeeded Miss
Woodsmall at guard. In this half Ne
braska missed five fouls out of five and
Baker threw ono out of 4. After some
fouling on both sides, Captain Shlnbur
led out with a nice goal. The gamo
progressed with no further scoring.
After a tirno Miss Ames, forward, threw
two consecutive goals. No more points
were made in tho next few minutes,
and then the clever center, Miss Ever
ett, found the basket from far out in
the field. No more goals were thrown.
Afteu a series of fouls and five min
utes of hard play, time was called Just
after tho umpire's whistle had sounded
for a foul on the second team. Haskell
this time made the foul count and saved
a shut out. Score, 22 to 1.
The Haskell girls came on the field
with the determination of rotrievlng
themselves, but odds were too great
against them. This time there were
only five on a side. Haskell fought
fiercely against her strong antagonists,
but to no avail. The half was an exact
repetition of tho first In the matter of
scoring. Haskell's attempts for goal
fell short as usual. Misses Jansa and
Scott made all the points for Nebraska,
the former making 13 and the latter 8

development and progress In baseball
work. The pitchers have all acquired
good form and are now twirling the
sphere as speedily and scientifically as
they are able, with one new man regis
tered as a candidate. They will be
ready to do good hard' work as soon
as outdoor practice begins. Progress
in track work' is not what it might be,
as the men do not turn out as well as
thoy should. Nevertheless, many men
are getting Into snapo for field work
as soon as the weather permits. Noth
ing has- as yet been done In regard to
