Dusty Rhodes climbed over the back

and took a seat with the team. The.
managexof the Nebraska Indians and
his wife watched the game from the
grandstand and ho was warm In his
praises of the work of the University
"Snapper" Kennedy, a man known in
baseball circles for some years past,
umpired' the game, and did a good
clean job, filling a mos.t difficult posi

going to bat.
Morso gave the fiist man up a past

hard) feeling towards his opponents,
but that was all there was doing.
" Williams, shortstop made a most
sensational stop of a hot grounder,
over second, which delighted the hearts
"of the fans. The Omaha men formed
a goose egg and NobraskA went to
bat, and they batted. Miller drew a
threebagger in the scrimmage and

The ninth was a white wash for
Omaha, and the game was won. Score,
17 to -1. In favor of the University.
The score does not give any definite
idea of the game. It was one replete

striking situations.

tho necessity of representation Tn the

now that everything has been adjust

Considerable difficulty was exper
