The Wisconsin team left home Mon

Law Students Hold Court.
Captain Townsend. has returned from
Tecumseh, where ho has been for th"
last week, and feels very well satis--hed
with-the Improvement the team has
ni?.de during his absence. The team
has an advantage over Inst year's in
bring enabled to begin outdoor .prac
tice much earlier than was the case
lat year, and they aie working hard
to realize- this advantage. Although,
only a few of last year's team are
back, they form a nucleus a re; u ml
which a champion team can be built
up, dad the enthusiasm with which
the players enter the game promises
that the beet team possible with the
material at hand will be turned out.
If anything was necessary to add to the
atiirance of a good team, that was
supplied when it wns announced that
Bender, the veteran backstop, had
finally decided -to Qiiter the game again
this year.' He said last foil that he
would not play baseball this spilng
but would devote all his energies to
track work, and university fans feel
much Cheered to know that .Jolfnnie
will again be behind the bat. and will
heor the boys on in his old manner.

Union Club Reorganized.
Th" Union Donating club has just
undergone a process of reorganization
and strengthening. The club had been
greatly weakened by the withdrawal
of scu'nil of its members to take part
in tbe interstate debating preparations,
and was. on the verge of collapse.
Credit for relvlng interest is duo to
J.-M Paul, who lias conducted a vigor
ous movement for "working up interest.
As a result of his efforts the club is
on Its feet again Jind flourishing vigor
ously. A number of debates will be
held with some of our state colleges
in tbe near futuie. Among these will
be meetings with Grand Island and
Wrsleyan. New men are coming into
the club and all of these will hac a
.chance on the debates.
Short Course at Farm Closed.
The short course of the
school closes this week after a very
successful term. About a hundred and
twenty-five students are registered in
tliIscourse, this number being in ex
cess of the showing made for an pre
vious year. Seventy-five students who
are completing this course will enter
the long course and continue wc.rk to
the end of the year. The term began
January 1st and includes the time when
the boys can best be spared from tho
farm for a course of instruction in ag
r leu Pu re.
One of the most Interesting speci
mens of livestock at the state farm is
the steer that Is' the full brother of
Challenger, who took the prize at the
live stock show-air Chicago. This aui
mal promises to eeiual or ourdo his.
lamous relative If he continues in his

week beginning March 20. both to bn
letwccm our team and Minnesota, or
one of the two to be with Stanley Hall.
This Is the first opportunity that Nu
biaska has ecr had to inert other
large Institutions, as the authorities of
tbe majority of western colleges will
not allow the girls' trains to play with
organizations outside of the Institu
tion. In this respect Nebraska is about
ten yrais In advance of her neighbors.
as no such restrictions have been in
force here, but now that other colleges
aie beginning to loosen up a llulo, tbe
futuie for girls' basket-ball Is assum
ing a somewhat brighter outlook.
It would have been possible to have
ai uingcd a game witlt Kansas this
year, but this was not clone out of con
sideration for the situation In regnid
to tb" relations existing between the
departments of men's athletics of the
two universities. Iowa and Missouri

on with Minnesota, it will be romeni

time ago that our team might meet

A week from next Saturday the team
will play a practice game with the sec
ond team, when the Academy team
j lays the "Midgets." On the evening
of March 18 a local tournament will be
held with the Nebraska Wesleyan and
city Y. W. C. A., teams. In view of
the game with Minnesota, considerable
Interest will attach to the playing or
the team on these two occasions, ns it
has only appeared In public once be
fore during the present season. In
rp'lte of tho difficulty which the team
has so far experienced in arranging
icgular practice hours. It is umloubti
eelly a very strong aggregation and
may be expected to play a swift game
at Minneapolis.
Mis. R.G. Clapp and' Miss Louise'
Pound have pledged fifty dollars to the
Temple fund on behalf of the girls'
basket-ball teams. The teams will not
be taxed for tho .sum, but it will be
given from tho proceeds of the class
tournament last Friday, which was
well attended.
Miss Pound has withdrawn from tho
management of tho first and second
teams for tho rest of tho year because;
unable to see them practice V She has
class work from ono to two o'clock,
tho only tlmo when it would be pos
sible for the teams to practice either
in the armory or in tho chapel, both
arc in such constant use. Questioned
on tho subject, Miss Pound said: "This
dees not mean that I have lost interest
In the game, or that I shall not be on
hand to do anything I can next fall.
But if it is possible for the teams to
practice for coming matches only an
occasional once a week, they should
have some one In charge able to be
present that onco." i
