UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA, LINCOLN, FRIDAY, MARCH 27, J903.
Wishes to Play Nebraska Nine at
the Big City.
Manager Bell of the baseball team
1b In receipt of a challenge from Chi
cago University for a game to be
played In Chicago on any one of the
four following dates, May 4, 6, C or 7.
Whether this challenge can be accepted
or not remains to be seen. Nebraska
already has a heavy schedule and these
dates are practically filled. Neverthe
less an attempt to take on this game
will likely be made. The Cornhusker
nine will be in Illinois according to
the present schedule on the Gtli and 7th
of May and Chicago could be made at
this time with but comparatively little
extra expense and time. At any rate,
Nebraska has reason to feel compli
mented over a challenge from Chicago
University. It indicates stronger than
ever the growth In athletics made at
Nebraska in the past four years and
gives evidence of her present high
standing In college athletics.

ary societies. Union, Dellnn and Pal

Enthusiasm Is running high In track

securing a meet with Minnesota this
year. The manogemont has been ne

Short Practice Yesterday.
Baseball practice lasted little more
than an hour yesterday. The field was
in poor condition, being slippery from
the effects of the forenoon's rain. Be

late In the season that the men felt
they had to practice anyway, and so

BASE BALL WINS OUT.
Military Department Makes Fav
The difficulty that recently arose be
tween the baseball boys and the mili
tary officers has disappeared suddenly
and completely. The commandant an
nounced to the battalion Wednesday
night that those who had taken three
semesters of drill previous to the open
ing of the present semester, and have
been carrying their five hours this
semester, will have completed all re
quirements by April -1st. and can then
drop out of the battalion. If they
abandon drill at that time, however,
no credit will be given for this semes
ter'H work In the military department.
This ruling. It will be seen, is made on
tho old regulation, not on the new.
The old system required four semes
ters of drill, but this was for three
hours per week only. Under the pres
ent system, three semesters of drill are
required and the battalion falls In five

zA Sample "Colors" Song
Nebraska has a "colors' semg. which we shall publish next Saturday.
Keep "A Knot of White and Blue." Columbia University's song, which we
give below, and compare it with Nebraska's "Scarlet and Cream." The
date for the close of the $100 contest 13 drawing near, and something must
be doing If the prize song is to win popular favor as well as the prize:
"A KNOT OF WHITE AND BLUE."
One dainty badge we'll ever wear,
Till college life depart.
It nestles In his lady's hair.
And on the student heart.
And eyes grow bright, and hearts grow
And spirits rise anew,
To see the colors that we love,
A knot of white and blue.
A little knot of white and blue.
The badge our fathers knew.
Our sons In turn its charm shall learn,
A knot of white and blue.
No lapse of time can hope to harm,
Nor after years dispel,
The fresh, unfailing, tender charm
Of what we love so well,
Of days that fly In rapture by.
Of friends so staunchly tfue,
And alma mater's dainty badge,
A knot of white and blue.
hour. Two teams were picked and
about an even score made. It began
to rain about 4 o'clock, and the men
were compelled to leave the field.
The track men were not outside, but
took a workout In the gym. The men
were also drilled inBlde in the pole
ault, high Jump, and those events
which could be practiced indoors.
The medical society met last night In
room 301. Owing to the Btormy
weather tho attendance was small, -but
the program rendered was heartily ap
preciated by the listeners. Mr. Harger
read an article on "Art Ideals in Medi
cine" by Norman Bridge, M. D. Mr.
Sturdevant read the paper on "Medi
cine" in a series of articles on "The
Choice of a Profession." The society
decided to accept an invitation from
the Nebraska section of the American
Chemical society to attend its meeting
on the 30th. This will take the place
of the regular meeting of the society.

credit to tho amount of ono and one-
half hours 1b given. By giving the
boys an opportunity to drop out at the
first of April, it is figured that they
will have fulfilled the requirements
as to time under the old ruling, minus
the credit already earned this semester.
This ruling gives those who wish to
play baseball during the spring months
an opportunity to do bo, but by sacri
ficing the hour and a half of credit
that would be gained if they were to
continue until the end of the semester.
