Men Get Out for Lively Practice
on the Diamond.
The continued wann weather is piox
ing a great boon to the baseball met:,
who turned out in large numbers -
teiday afternoon from two to fern
There aie no extra good men showing
up as yet, but this can be expected at
this time of the year Perhaps the moi
promising candidate for Hendcr's plv
at backstop is Miller, who marie a
great record on the Stock Yaids tram
of South Omaha the last seaton. Uartu
of the tootball squad, has donned a suit
and is trying for a position. One of
the beet additions to the squad is Ham
mil, xho. has played on the Y. M. C. A.
team for several seasons.
Dr. Clapp nnd Chancellor Andrews
have together managed to let most of
the baseball and track men out of
drill, nnd this insures Nebraska of is
good a team as can be turned out of
the school. Dr C'lapp does not intcn 1
to start outdoor work in the track di-
ision until later in the season, except
ing in the case of the long distance
men. who will hae outdoor runs ts
usual on Tuesday. Thurs-da.x and Sat
urday. -The track manngenunt has been xci.x
loathe about ai ranging dates for meets
With outside teams in Lincoln until it
is finally known what we are going to
have for an athletic field. If the Board
of Regents will guarantee a field for
the future the track nnd baseball man
agements will get along somehow thi-
spring while the present field is toi ".
up for the new building. The announce
ment that if possible the dettructixo
north wing will be left off has already
greatly encouraged the different man
agers, especially the football director.
With the best nnd hardest schedule
that ever a western college ever slgnoel
up it was a clean knockout blow to
kill the whole game by taking away
our field, and that field the best in the
oct. If the noith wing Is left off. the
building- will come to the twenty-fix e
yard line, nnd by filling in the north
part ol the campus and extending the
field to the T street curb, football will
be possible, although baseball can hard
ly be played in the cramped quarters.
The south pait of the grandstand will
have to be torn down nnd taekedniito'
the north end.
Colorado is doing her best to have
us -consent to transfer the game next
October from Denver to Boulder. Of
course Colorado is very desirous of
playing us on her home grounds, but
the gate receipts at Denver, is a great
Inducement to our board, as they have
lost money on thu Colorado trip every

Everything Possible Will Be Done
to Save Athletic Field.
Trc account published in yesterday's

iricd to be based on facts. The build

their inmei to pieclude such a con

We ujiel.-iMand that the Regent had
be- u asnii-ed that 330 feet would be
M'file lent Jor gridiron space, and they
pi ei timed that 15 extra space would be
siiKk m ni for all practical purposes.
Howe r i this estimate -was made by an
i:ne.iHe i,i party who was not informed

quired, in order that the football
games may be properly accommodated

the Mii.otluctlon of the wing would re
duce thu- amount to 345 feet., which
upon the information brought to them
the Kc gents deemed sufficient lor the

tended that the Athletic Board should
be iio.nri.ted to submit an exact esti

for an v.hlctlc field, but no eommuni

Ilaie'.lj r.t anj time could the Athletic

cieit opportunity xvlll be given for
hunting for another suitable location

has been critical for athletics, and the
hope thnt Is now held out brings with
T a he use of relief.
We liaxo received seeral communi
cations from alumni of this Institution
Plotting against tho absorption of
our Mhletic field until a new site can

DOWN FOR $500.
Alpha Theta Chi P edges to the
Temple Fund.
The Alpha Theta Chi fraternity has
:lioxu its loyalty to the Temple Fund
ly ninalng a pledge of $500. This is
hllie kind of action that best exr8BeB
uie interest that any organization here
may hr.xe In the xvelfare.of the Univer
sity From the fact that quite a sue
llfiee will be entailed for most of the
:nemi.eit of this body, their action is
nil the more deserving of praise. Tho
Delia U.'s together with the Alphn
Thr-tn Chl's. have now set a worthy ex
am nlc and it is to he hoped thnt other
'r.-ileinitlrs may see their xvav eleai
to follow. University organizations
have as a rule responded nobly, but
all should if possible be represented.
Contributions to the Fund have been
coming In with pleasing regularity.
Even the opponents of the Temple
building have censed to deny that the
amount will be raised. This is certain
ly a good sign in itself; for if they had
any reason for supposing that the un
dertaking might fall, they would eag
erly gn': the opportunity fcr expati
ating . it. The students, alumni
nnd .. nds of the University have ral
lied in support of the cause, nnd noth
ing will deter them from nctivitj until
their purpose is accomplished
Tournament Tomorrow Night.
Another team with a chance for th"
capture of the ornnant is the Sopho
more. Three of its membeis played to
gether for several jears on the Lin
coln high school team, and haxe noxx
plajed together two seasons on then
class team in the University. These
ere Miss Inis Everett, Miss Margaret
Plllsbury (captain), nnd Miss Nellie
Allller. Reinforcing thete nre .Miss Ina
Glttings. the nexv center on the 'Varsi
ty, who distinguished herself xvhile yet
on the Superior high school team, plac
ing xvell In all positions, and' Miss
Helen H use. also of the Superior high
school team. Thus the Sophomore has
more tried material than any othr
of the class teams. Last year these
players xvere but one goal behind in
their match with the winning team,
and a few minutes more or less ot
piny might hnve changeel the outcome.
The absence from school this year of
Miss Kthel Ames, one of the strongest
pluyers of last season, Is a notable
loss, but It may confidently bo predict
ed that unless something unforseen
should develop, the class of 190G will
be a contestant In the final struggle
for the pennant.
Miss Oittings and Miss Everett xvlll
be the centers. Miss Pillsbury and Miss
Miller the forwards, and Miss Huse one
of tho guards. For tho sixth" place
the team will have to draw upon leee
tried matorlal. Miss May Bothwell,
who made her debut as a player only
a short time ago will probably try her
hand as the second guard, or If not, one
of the team's three substitutes, Miss
Jane Blanehard. of the Lincoln Acad
emy team, Miss Lillian Bennett, or
Miss May Miller. In the tournament of
last year, the enthusiastic rooting for
this class was a feature of the matches.
Many members of the class expect to
bo out once more on Friday night to
support their representatives, whether
they meet defeat, or wrest the victory
from their rivals.

uating squad for the present year:

Lcxxln, Light ner. McReynolds. Myers.

A good sized crowd again gathered
In Memorial Hall to hear the conclud
ing arguments In the debate. While
perhaps not as spirited as tho content
of the preceding evening, the nrgu
tho audience xvas nmply repaid for the
ments reflected great credit on the de
baters separate as well as Jointly and
close attention which it accorded eah
spanker. The men hpoke In the fol

Mr. Johnson, xvho xxub also to hovo
spoken for the nfllrmatlxe. was not
Mr. Albert Watkins. of Lincoln, pie
slded at the meeting In an able man
ner, and at the conclusion of tho de
bate entertained the nudience with an
extemporaneous talk on the value or
debating to the man of nctlve affairs.
Mr. Watkins is n graduate of the Uni
versity of Wisconsin.- and recalled
many highly interesting Incidents of
his experiences at that institution to
Illustrate Jils Ideas. His talk wns also
intersperted with several excellent
stories and pointed remarks, which
held the close attention of his hearers
throughout. He xvas followed by Mr.
Neil M. Cronin, who briefly reviewed
the progress of debate at Nebraska
during the past five years, and more
particularly under the guidance of Pro
fessor Fogg. To his leadership Mr.
Cronin ascribed much of Nebraska's
success during the past two years. He
also paid due tribute to the increased
interebt and activity in debate which
have been evidenced during that time
by the students and faculty of the Uni
versity. Fred M. Hunter ndded a few brief
and humorous romarks to Mr. Cronln's
talk and was followed again by Mr.
Watkins, who suggested that some of
our prominent women ho heard from.
This was prevented, however, by tho
entrance of the judges and the an
nouncement of tho result of the de
bates, which was received with uni
versal approval. The judges wore Pro
feesord Ross, Cook, Taylor. French and
The fifteen successful men will enter
a class under Professor Fogg (English

Probably four men will ultimately be
chosen, for each 'debate. The success
ful men are requested to seo Profes
sor Fogg in his office today.
