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 at least upon paper. Chicago has had ft ' selfish habit of doling out defeats to us whenever we came her way. It is 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 toastmaster: "The First Born Impulse," Jas. A. ureen. "In Changing Wind nnd Weather," R. H. White. "Sunshine of Days Gone By," H. R. Edwards. "Castles in tho Mist," L. W. Chase. "With Each Encircling Year," Verne Hedge. "When Fades at Last Our College Days,"- Russel Harris and -Norton Ware. "The Truo Knight of Learning," J. B. GIbbs. 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. 'NO GAME" AGAIN. Wet Grounds Cut Out Contest with Grinnell. Senior Girls Program. An excellent program was given by the Senior class during convocation pe riod yesterday morning, which was rendered as follows, President Borg presiding: Devotional exercises, B. G. Lewis. , Vocal solo, Mablo Stephen. Reading, Mildred Clark. Piano solo, Henrietta Rees. Vocal solo, H. E. Bradford. Reading, May Edholm. Both music and readings were of the highest order and a good crowd greeted qach speaker with applause This was the beginning of a series of chapel programs to be given by the different classes of the school and the Seniors surely did themselves proud, and set a pace that will be exceeding ly hard for the others to follow. C. H. Froy for choice cut flowers, 1133 O Street. 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 welcomed. RULES FOR ELECTION. Conditions With Which Candi dates Will Have to Comply.
