Score or 22 to 7.
The freshmen baBket ball team de
feated tho seniors last night by a scora
of 22 to 7. While the" game was Very
one-sided, it was nevertheless an ex
ceedingly Interesting contest. The up
per classmen put up' a plucky game
and fought desperately to the very
last They succeeded In getting the
ball near the basket frequently, but
were unable to "put it In." The fresh
men excelled in team work, and put
up a swift and snappy play which could
not be broken up by their opponents.
Krake threw 6 goals in the firSt half,
but Spafford kept him from making a
point in the second. .Buck did good
work at guard and Milek at center for

to 5 in favor of the freshmen. In the
second half tne seniors took a wonder
ful brace and held the under classmen
down to 8 points, but made 6aly two
themselves. Only one foul was thrown
during the evening, and that by Golden
in the first half. Tho crowd was very
small, but nevertheless unusually en
thusiastic, and considerable loud cheer
ing was done. For the freshmen.

Some difficulty has arisen in tho in
terstate debating squads over the re
cent action of the debating board in
regard to placing the men on the dif
ferent teams. Since the squads were
selected two men have dropped off,
leaving vacancies that had to be filled
either by alternates or from other de
bating material. The present difficulty
was occasioned by the appointment of
a man already on one of the teams to
fill a vacancy on another team, to the
exclusion of the alternate, who natural
ly expected to be promoted to the va
The teams as announced on the 21st
of last month were as follows:
Nebraska-Colorado College John
Columbus Doubt, 1903, University
Place; William Frederick Meier, 1903,
Lincoln; Ira Ryner, 1903, Cedar Rap
Ids; John Nathaniel Norton, 1904.
Nebraska-Kansas Emory Roy Buck
ner, 1904, Olathe, Kan.; Richard Clin
ton James,-1903, Dunbar; George Ar
thur Lee, 1903, Humboldt; Guy Melvln
Peters, 1904, Albion.
Nebraska-Missouri Nell Michael
Cronln, 1904, Sutton; Frederick Morris
Hunter. 1904, Blue Rapids, Kan.; Bur
dette Gibson Lewis, 1904, Omaha; J. C,
McReynoIds, law '04, Lincoln.
Since that date Doubt has dropped
off from the Colorado team on account
of a severe attack of the rheumatism,
which made It Impossible for him to
carry on his work. Alternate Norton
was at once promoted to fill the va
cancy, but last week he was com
pelled to resign the place, giving as his
reason "the ush of University work."
To fill the vacancy caused by the
resignation of Mr. Norton, the debat
ing board transferred Lewis from the
Missouri team to the Colorado team,
and put Ryner in Lewis' place on the
Missouri squad, instead of promoting
Alternate McReynoIds. This action
gives Ryner a place on both the Mis
souri and Colorado teams and leaveB
McReynoIds still an alternate. The ac
tion of the board in this matter haB
been generally resented in debating cir
cles and is called unconstitutional by
men who figure prominently In Uni
versity debating. The constitution of
the debating association merely gives
the board power to appoint three men
on each interstate debating team prop
er and one alternate. The board, it
seems, has gone beyond its powers in
transferring men from one team to an
other, In Ignoring an alternate and
appointing one man for two positions.
It Is hoped that no serious trouble will
ensue, howover, because work on these
debates ought not now to be lnter-
ferred with. If any trouble is made
over the matter, some of the most sub
stantial debaters, It is claimed, will
withdraw, which would upset the con
ditions of debate in the University and
might cause a repetition of the record
of two years ago.
As It now stands the teams are as fol
lows: Nebraska-Colorado B. G. Lewis. W.
F. Meier, Ira Ryner.
Nebraska-Missouri N. M. Cronln.
F. M. Hunter, Ira Ryner.
Nebraska-Kansas E. R. Buekner,
R. C. James; G. A. Lee and G. M.
Peters as alternates.
The senior class met yesterday at
1 and listened to reports from the sen
ior prom and senior annual commit
tees. The former committee reported
favorably on .the progress of arrange
ments for the prom which occurs April
17. Plans are being laid for one of the
best proms that the Institution has
ever enjoyed. The report of the editor
of the class book revealed the fact that
the business end of the enterprise Is
not coming on as well as was hoped,
because of a lack of advertising sup
port. An appeal was made to the class
for support and aid in selling the
books when they came out next month.
One thousand copies will be printed,
and if the entire lot can be disposed of
at fifty cents each the management will
make both ends meet The book will
be superior to any senior annual yet
published In the University. More
cuts are being Inserted, so the manage
ment reports, than all other such
books combined have printed. The
publication will cost from two hundred
to two hundred and fifty dollars more
than last year's class put up for their
The juniors met yesterday and lis
tened to reports by the senior class
book committee and the Sombrero
committee. The matter of space in the
senior annual will be considered and
acted upon later. Mr. Tobln reported
that the money for junior representa
tion in the Sombrero is almost all
raised and can be turned over in a
short time. The class voted to tender
a reception to the seniors some time
in May, and also to have a junior
party, authorizing the president to ap
point committees to arrange for these
