UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA, LINCOLN, WEDNESDAY, MAY 20, 1903.
IT WAS A MISTAKE
Nothing in Report About Change
of Athletic Directorship.
Considerable Interest was aroused In
University circles by the appearance
of the following telegram from Mil
waukee In the Journal of yesterday
Milwaukee, Wis., May 18. (Special )
Dr. W. Frew, director of athletics at
tho Milwaukee Athletic club, may ac
cept an offer from the University of
Nebraska to take charge of all the
athletic work at that institution. His
health la giving out under tho strain
of work ho Is undor here, with classes
every morning, afternoon and night
and continual gymnasium work at
other UmeB from early morning until
nearly midnight He has been given
a leave of absenco, and whllo he Is
away will visit the Nebraska school
and probably make a reply to the offer
It Is said ho has received. He Is con
sidered one of the best athletic train
ers In tho country, and is on a par
with the star mon of the east.
An attempt to verify tho rumor yes
terday resulted only In a series of
denials, accompanied by confessions
of Ignorance concerning any founda
tion whatever for Buch a rumor. Three
members of the athletic board declared
there was nothing to It, and the exocu
tlvo oflleo made practically the same
The work of Dr. Clapp, the present
athletic director, has been moBt satis
factory to everyone at all concerned In
athletics, and not the slightest desire
for his displacement has been heard
at any time. hIb successful conduct
ing of the recent Knox meet has In
creased tho already large circle of his
University frlendB, and ho holds a firm
place In the affections of the students.
The only explanation so far advanced
Is this: Colorado University Is looking
for an athletic Instructor Dr. Allln,
who recently lectured here, went di
rectly east from this place on the mis
sion of finding such an instructor. It
is supposed the fact that he went then;
from hero was confused In tho report
with tho belief that he represented
this institution in his quest
Should it happen to develop that
there 1b anything In the dispatch, It
will be a decided surprise to the great
majority of University students and
members of tho faculty.
Hares and Hounds Tonight.
Tho Y. W. C. A. "hare and hound
hunt," postponed from last Tuesday
night on account of bad weather, will

will Btart from tho Y. W. room at

That tired feeling may be perma
nently cured by the dally application
of one of my "heat repelling" suit.

Nebraska meets her old foe, High
land Park, on Nebraska Field this af
ternoon at 3:30. Interest In baseball
has waned considerably since the last
gamo was played on the local diamond,
but today'B game will Btart things go
ing again, and a good crowd of base
ball enthuBlastB 1b looked for.
Today's contest will be especially In
teresting from the fact that everyone
is anxious to learn how tho Nebraska
men will perform now. Many who are
disappointed with the success of the
big eastern trip, will be out today to
dlflcover, If possible, a reason for the
Blgnal defeats of the Oornhuskers In
their last games, at the handB of teams
very much Inferior to those which Ne
braska had already dofeated. The play
ing of each man will be carefully
watched, and If anyone puts up a poor
er game than he did before the trip
was made, this fact will be noted, and
conclusions as to the recent defeats
"Townsend'B Colts" are resolved to
redeem themselves In part, at least,
by walloping Highland Park in a fash
ion which will reflect credit upon tho
home team. They will put up tho
game of their lives In an endeavor to
"square accounts." Pitted against this
feeling l the fact that Highland -Bark
Is here for the Cornhusker's Bcalp, and
the men from Des Moines Bay they will
leave Lincoln with it at their belts.
They have their minds mndo up to re
trieve a Btring of defeats. Last year
Nebraska defeated this team by a score
of 6 to 1. Recently tho Cornhuskers
dragged their colors In the dust by -i
score of 7 to 1 on their own groundB.
If comparative scores amount to any
thing, Nebraska will win today. But
this basis of prediction 1b often unsatis
factory, as the late trip sorrowfully
Nebraska's line-up will be about the
samo as usual. Steen, who has an In
jured hip, which he received on the
trip, 1b confined to his room, and will
be unable to play. Townsend will fill
his , position at second. Wilson will
play first, Hood third, Bender catcher.
In tho field will be Morae, Gore and
Beltzer, Johnson will play short and
Ionganecker will officiate In tho box.

Sigma Chi lost to Phi Delta Theta
last evening by a score of"16-12. The
first Inning ended with tho score of G
to 8, and It looked as though the game
would last all night. Both teams then
took a brace, and at the end of the
fifth Inning the Phi Dolts were two
scores ahead. The feature of the game
was a place hit by De Lacey which
carried the ball with such accuracy that
It bounced through an open window of

HAD A BIQ DAY.
Senior Sneak Day Calm and Joy.
Without Interference or annoyance
of any kind from outsldo sources or,
moro plainly speaking, from tho Jun
iors' tho mombers of the sonlor class,
to tho number of eighty, boarded an
eleven o'clock special yesterday and
departed for a day's enjoy ment at
Cushman park. Classes wore skipped
promiscuously, and P. B. K'b and all
took advantago of tho opportunity to
have a good tlmo.
As tho Juniors had mado themselves
felt by tho Issuing of bulletins the
night before, It was feared that an ef
fort would bo mado to lntorforo with
tho proceedings, but as no unusual up
rising was noticed, the plan to spend
the day at Cushman park was adhered
to, and with full dinner palls and fly
ing flag and tooting horn, the procos
Blon moved on.
Tho train arrived at tho park at
11:25, and after tho grounds had been
explored to the satisfaction of all,
picked teams under Captains Sly and
Cook contested for honors on tho dia
mond Five Innings of fierce and fast
playing resulted In a victory for the
former team with the slight margin of
Dinner was the next thing on tho
program, and the scattored multitudo
quickly assembled at the call from the
ram's horn, and partook of such a din
ner as has never before been enjoyed
In Cushman park. And the best of It
was that the leavings would havo been
sufficient to Battsfy tho ravenous ap
petite of the whole Junior class. At
this stago of tho proceedings Hamilton
produced his ever-present camera from
somewhere and all were photographed.
Several select views were obtained of
tho ladles' military band. Tho "Little
Potatoes," captained by McOeachln,
and the "Never Sweats," under the
command of Shock, occupied tho at
tention of the fans for a sovon-lnnlng
game, which resulted In a victory for
Next occurred tho annual track nleet
of the Sneakers' Athletic association.
Miss Minnie Guilo won tho 100-yard
dash for the girls, and McOeachln enr-
rlcd off the honors for tho boys. The
Shetland pony race between Hanson
and Brunor was easily won by tho
former, who graciously informed his
enthusiastic admirers that his success
was in part due to his long experience
with "horses" in the University. A
team composed of Misses Brown, Sly,
Guile, and Cook tied with Misses
Schaper, Ballard, Guile, and Hess in
a relay race. Langley, Shock, Griffin,
and Hamilton won over Golden, Peters,
Fairchlld, and Ferguson.
As a closing feature, President Tcl
lesen gave an exhibition of jumping
the rope that brought forth great
rounds of applause.
The return trip was. begun at 6:30,
and on the arrival In the city the class
paraded up P and Eleventh streets and
through the library, and then took
their stand on the big rock with the
flag In their midst, but as no resistance
was made, they soon dispersed.
Tho participants all affirm that
"Sneak day" has never been more en
joyed than It was by the Class of '03.
