Tho Nebraska baseball team was un
able to play Grinnell Monday on ac
count of wet grounds, but are going
to play thom on their return on May
v5, which date Lombard cancelled wltn
'us. Only optimistic reports have been
heard from Minnesota. They have a
very strong team and a good game Is
expected next Thursday. They con
sider Nebraska a strong team, and are
getting in shape as fast as they can.
Two years ago Nebraska beat them by
a score of 4 to 3, when Sam Letherby
twirled tho ball.
, Today Nebraska meets Luther at
' Decor.ah. This game 'has always been
a comparatively easy proposiiton for
Nebraska on her eastern trip, and al
though no reports have been forthcom
ing regarding the strength of that team
this year, It is quite safe to predict
that Nebraska will depart with vic
tory perched on her banners. Friday
Nebraska meets Belolt, which team
-- has already defeated Chicago, hence If
Nebraska defeats Belolt her chances
with Chicago may be reckoned upon

The annual banquet of the Engin
eering society, which took place at
the Lindell hotel Saturday evening,
was tho largest in the history of en
gineering at tho University. The plates
wore laid in the dining room, the ordi
nary being too small to accommo
date the banqueters. After the nine
courses the following toasts were re
sponded to, J. B. Davidson being the
"The First Born Impulse," Jas. A.
"In Changing Wind nnd Weather,"
R. H. White.
"Sunshine of Days Gone By," H. R.
"Castles in tho Mist," L. W. Chase.

Days,"- Russel Harris and -Norton
"The Truo Knight of Learning," J.

The members of the faculty and the
old graduates were called upon to say
a few words. Somo of the jokes and
stories that were sprung will never
be forgotten by those present.
No doubt the annual "banquet will be
looked forward to more and more as
one of the leading events of the year.

Another disappointment has been
reaped by our baseball team on Its
trip, owing to unfavorable weather
conditions. Because of very wet
grounds the game with Iowa could not
uo played yesterday. A special tele
gram to The Nebraskan last night
stated that the team would play Luther
College, that games will be played
with Iowa and Grinnell on May 5th,
and that the team will meet Highland
Park on May Gth. This means that
the team may have an opportunity to
play out tho full schedule before re
turning. The continued wet weather
has been disastrous to our schedule,
and tho remedy possible will be gladly
