Players Getting Ready For Min
nesota on April 22.
The girls' basket ball team began
prnetlco again last Filday. The delay
was owing' to the uncertainty whether
the next gamo tp bo played would be
Minnesota or Missouri. The, teams play
by different rules and in absolutely dif
ferent stylts. Missouri plays by the
preferrng six players andr the three
court game. Tho players In the north
west reproduce almost exactly tho
men's gamo, a much more violent ono.
Nebraska plays a middle game, the wo
men's except for the division into
three courts. All in all. by experience
und motbod of play, the Nebraska team
is perhaps better fitted1 to meet the
women's game rather than the men's.
Before this year tho team has usually
practiced once a week for 30 or 40 miu
utos, from about 2:1G to 2:45, during
tbo winter months, thiB being the"
only time when tho armory was va
cant -and could bo secured for practice.
This year, owing to conflicting cluss
work, at tho ono. possible,, hour for
playing, tho team did not meet more
than a few times during the whole
year, until tho Minnesota gamo was
scheduled. For this It practiced some
thing like eight or ten times, in the

preceding two weeks. Team play lb a
thing the team haR never pretended
to develop. They have hardly met an
opposing team that had not made more
effoit and none better in this regard.
Their unbroken victories hitherto,
have been won by the excellence of
their guarding, which lias never failed
under favorablo conditions to break
up the concerted plays of their oppo
nents, and by the strength of their In
dividual play. The team they have to
meet April 22 has been training and
playing critical matches since October,
with regular practice hours, and plen
ty of opportunity for goal practice out
side. Moreover, since some of its
strongest points are speed and endur
ance, it may be expected to play a bet
ter game, the larger the floor. On a
small floor it would be rather at a dis
advantage, but with plenty of room for
running and lightning passing, it may
be expected to put up a brilliant ex
hibition. Tho Nebraska, team consists at pres
ent of Miss Emma Shlnbur. Miss Min
nie Jansa, forwards; Miss Cora Scott
(captain) and Miss Inls Everett (sec
ond center for tho Missouri game), cen
ters; Miss Elva Sly and Miss Ina Git
tings, guards; Miss Ruth Woodsmall.
Miss Archibald, center on last year's
team, was present at the practice Sat

Kansas and Nebraska Engaged
In Selecting Judges.
Chancellor Androws has consented
to preside at the Kansas debate on
April 2iH h. This news is leceived with
plHisrre. as attempts to secure him to
act in that capacity both last year and

engagements took him out of the state

that the new organisation bo known
