Since the Saturday issue of The Ne
bra8kan the editor has learned that two
errors in statement in facts occurred
In the article "Pertaining to Athletics"
in that issue.
The books of the financial secretary
of the Athletic Board show that eleven
footballs were paid for during the past'
season and not sixty-fhe as stated in
A-jrain. the statement was made that
$3.00 per week for each man ought to
meet all training table expenses.
ThoB'e who have had experience in
the conduct of athletic training tables
here and elsewhere say that the figure
named above is impossible, and we find
that the amount spent for training
table during the past season is less than
was sjient during the season of 1902 and
is not unreasonable or excessive. We
greatly regret that in the article re
ferred to The Nebraskan has given pub
licity to the misstatements here corrected.
Fraternity League Passes Rules
to Govern Its Games.
The Iowa debate is in imminent
danger of being declared off. Although
the matter will not bo actually settled
untij Iowa can be heard from, the pres
ent prospects for the meeting nre un
promising. The condition is chiefly
on account of the difficulty in arrang
ing a date suitable to both sides. Our
dates with Kansas and . Washington
are being arranged to come off early
in May, thus precluding the conflict
during this time. The occurrence of
the semester's examination during the
latter part of that month renders ii
almost an Impossibility then. The re
fusal of Iowa to extend the compact
for longer than the present year makes
our board a little hesitant about fall
ing over themselves to meet Iowa.

BETAS WIN FIRST CONTEST.
The first of the Inter-Fraternity
series of baseball games was played
Saturday on the Unlvecslty campus,
when the Beta's defeated the Sigma Al
pha's by a decisive score. The game
was replete with errors and showed
lack of proper practice. Robertson,
for the Sigma's did good work, but
was handicapped by lack of support.
The score by innings:
Beta 3 f 8 2 0 0 220 8
Sigma 2 0 2 0 2 107 5

Manager Bell has been fmced to
shake his baseball schedule up a lit
tlo and has added a couple of games to
uie number to be played on the east
ern trip. This addition has been nec
essitated by the low guarantees whlclt
the eastern colleges offer, and by the
fact that as yet no game has been ar
ranged for May 2 The game with Grln
nel scheduled for home grounds, has
been changed to Grlnnell, aiid a con
test, with Crelghton has been .substi
tuted. The latter team insisted on
playing two games or none. The game
scheduled with Drake has been changed
to the morning, and Highland Park
will ho played In the afternoon of the
Another morning game will prob
bly be played with Bellevuo in Oma

Wot grounds have prevented the men
from practicing for the last ten days
with the exception of Friday and Sat
urday. Since It Is only two weeks un
til the series with Omaha, it has been
decided necessary to get in all the hard
work possible In that time, and con
sequently the men have agreed to stay
here during the eaBter vacation In
order that we will have a good' team
with which to skin the Omahogs.

thorized the holding of a track meet
