First University Gymnast Chosen
Last Evening.
A good crowd turned out to witness
the last of the gymnastic contests ,in
which first place and the University
"N" was won by Mr. J. T. Milek, who
also won the first contest. Mr. Pipal,
who was a close second in the first
contest, was too ill to appear last night,
so that Mr. Milek was not hard pressed
by any contestant, and had no difficulty
In carrying off first honors.
Besides the awarding of the "N" and
title of Uhiversity "Gymnast" silver
cups were given to the winners of first
and second places In each contest.
In addition to the three regular con
tests there were three exhibition. A
squad of picked men, led by Mr. Lane
and Mr. Graves, presented a tumbling
exhibition which seemed to afford much
amusement to the audience, and in
which there was really some very fine
work done. The feature of the evening,
however, was some fancy club swing
ing by Dr. Clapp, which took the audi
ence by storm and called forth a
burst of applause which lasted for sev
eral minutes.
The first contest on the side-horse,
which was entered by Milek, Baker,
Noyes and Posplsil, resulted In Milek
first, Baker second. The second was
tne long horse, with Milek, Baker, Pos
plsil and Copeland entered. Milek won
this event, also, while Copeland car
ried off second honors. Only three
men, Milek, Noyes, and Brick, were en
tered In the final event, the flying
rings, and again Milek got in his work,
and carried dff the first prize, with
Brick second. The final total scores
were as follows:
Milek, 438.
Baker, 321.
Pipal, 217.
The final exhibition was two forma
tions of pyramids by a picked squad,
which was all that had been promised,
and pleased the spectators greatly.
State Farm Team Easily Beaten
by University.
A fair sized crowd greeted Captain
Townsend's colts at their initial ap
pearance yesterday afternoon, and
cheered them on to a very decisive
victory in a game surprisingly free
from errors considering the high wind
which was blowing. The much-heralded
Stat Farm team failed to make
good, and although the University
loaned them one of our catchers, Bar
ta, they permitted the. CornhuBkers to
amble around the diamond nineteen
times, while thoyJwere able to score
but once, and that in the second Inning.
Nebraska fans are much encouraged
over the showing made by the team
thus early in the season, and feel that
if the usual Improvement takes place
before the regular schedule begins the
record made this year will excel that
of last year by a considerable margin.
The men showed Sip well at the stick,
Miller and Fenlon especially distin
guished, themselves by lining the ball
out every time they stepped up to the
plate. The former showed excellent
skill in placing clean hits, while Fen
lon, with the air of the wind, smashed
out two homo runs. The line-up:
Catch Bender, MiUef.

Tennis Association Meets.
The Tennis association met yesterday
morning for the purposes of reorgani
zation and of electing officers and
transacting business. The following of
ficers were re-elected by unanimous
vote: President, C. B. Perslnger; vice
president, Chas. Mathewson; secretary
and treasurer, B. P. Tyner. Mr. Cassi
dy was also elected unanimously to the
position of manager. To cover neces
sary expenses an initiation fee of one
dollar was charged and a fee of one
to be moved to the south, and It is ex
pected that they will be in shape by
next Tuesday.
The following amendments to the
constitution were passed:
Section 1. The dues of this club shall

semestral dues of ?1.00 a semester.
Sec. 2. Any member allowing his Be
mestral fees to lapse for two succes
sive semesters shall be required to pay
a second initiation fee of $1.00.
The matter of moving the courts fur
ther south will be immediately attend
ed to and practice can probably be
held about tho middle of next week. A
number of new men have expressed a
desire to join the association and as
soon as the grounds are in shape prac
tice will be pushed with all speed In
order to prepare for the prospective
Nothing has been heard from Minne
sota In regard to the meet with them
this spring, but there Is, as yet, no par
ticular rush about the affair, as It
would not come off until tho latter part
of May in any case. It may be possible
to hold the tournament at the same
time as tho track meet with tho Goph
ers, which will probably be. about May
21. In tho meanwhile there is some
talk of holding tournaments with Wes
leyan and Doane. Practice has already
been going on for some time on the
Wesleyan courts, and the Methodists
ought to be able to put up a pretty
good article of tennis. Doane, of course,
would also afford a stiff contest.
Girls Leave this Afternoon.
The girla' basket ball team departs
this afternoon for Minneapolis, where
they will meet the University of Min
nesota team tomorrow night and the
Central High School team Saturday.
The team will leave with tho conscious
ness that a Nebraska girls' team has
not lost a game since girls' basket ball-
was introduced hero in 1896, and we

ord unmarred. The party will consist
of Misses Minnie Jansa, Bmma Shin
bur, Ina Gittings, Blva Sly, Cora Scott
and Ruth Woodsmall, escorted by Mrs.
R. G. Clapp and Dr. Louise Pound.
The Minnesota Dally has the follow
ing to say regarding the-game:
''The 'Varsity girls are training hard
for what bids fair to be their best and
most exciting game of the season, that
with Nebraska next Friday night. Ne
braska's reputation which is second
only to our own assures a close con
test. "They will lino up against the 'Varsi
