OUTLOOK IS GOOD
Baseball Team Getting Into
Shape for Omaha League.
The baseball men are down to hard
work again after the cold snap and
hard practice will be the rule now until
the first game, which will be the begin
ning of the series with Omaha next
week. It Is a cherished rule at Nebras
ka that at least one of the- three year
ly games with the Omaha Western
League team must go to Nebraska, and
in order that the team this year may
maintain this tradition there will be
no Easter vacation for them, but the
fact hat there will be no classes will
simply enable the men to play ball
longer each day.
The outlook at present is very en
couraging, especially with respect to
the pitching staff. Beltzer, who was
looked upon as the star last year, has
two team mates in Morse and Adams,
who promiso to equal any record he can
make. Morse was on the team last
year and made the trip, but he has
improved wonderfully since then and
has added much speed to his ball. In
1903 he had excellent control, but his
ball was a trifle slow. Adams is a new
man and hails from Wahoo. Iast sum
mer he played on one of the small
league teams, where he made an excep
tionally good record, and he is certain
ly making good this season.
If these three twirlers are not enough
to win our games, there is always Cap
tain Townsend to fall back upon. So
far this year he has been playing at
a more unprovided-for position, first
base, which he covers in excellent
shape, and has depended on the other
men to take care of the pitching. Other
men trying for first are Robertson and
Barta, but neither can cover the ground
the way Wilson did. Second base sems
to be provided for with Stein from the
Lincoln high school and Hammil from
the Lincoln Y. M. C. A. Shortstop is
affording more trouble. Only one man,
Williams, is out for this, but he seems
to be showing up good and will prob
ably be able to hold the position down
satisfactorily. Steen will cover third
and Bender preside behind the bat,
both men. having played on the team
last year. The outfield is especially
well filled. Fenlon, Cooke, Spraguo and
Miller are hauling down the long on-'S
in good shape, and all of them handle
the wagon pole well, especially Fenlon
and Miller. The latter will also sub

who has ever succeeded in making a
Yale inter-colleglate team. The "Ya'e
News" in commenting on the victory,
rejoices that at last debate at Yale has
been put on a solid foundation. "The
preparation necessary for a debate is
without exception," says the News,
"more taxing and confining than for
any other college contest. Because of
the hard work required, almost as much
as for tho victory Itself, the college
owes the team and Mr. Trowbridge( the
instructor in debate) a debt of gratitude."
