Hot Package Handed Base Ball
Team at Beloit.
BELOIT, WiB., April 29. (Special to
The Dally Nebraskan.) Nebraska un
derwent a discouraging slump today
and presented Beloit with an easy
game. Score, Beloit, 10; Nebraska, 2.
Owing to the wonderful showing
made by the Cornhuskcrs against Min
nesota yesterday, the result of the
game was somewhat of a surprise. The
difference In the scorce was largely due
to the poor Adding of Nebraska and
the heavy hitting of BoloiL Beltzer,
for Nebraska, proved Ineffectual, and
was forced to give way to Adams, who
was, however, unablo to stave off de
feat. Beloit made 12 hits during the game
to 6 for Nebraska. The error column
shows- six for Nebraska to 1 for Beloit.
Batteries: Nebraska, Beltzer, Adams
and Bender; Beloit, Morrey and Johnson.
Today the team plays at Chicago.
Last week Beloit defeated Chicago by
a ricore of 3 to 1, but .has been defeated
Iby Wisconsin, who in turn was wal
loped by Chicago,- ao that comparing
Hcores leads to rather unsatisfactory
conclusions. Adams or Morse will be
fn the box for Nebraska and It Is ex
pected that the Cornhuskers will strike
their pace again, and put up a better
irtlcle of ball than in yesterday's game.

Senior Annual Will be Ready for
Sale Next Week.
The editors of Jhe Senior Annual an
nounce that the book will be ready for
sale Wednesday. The printing has
been completed, and the binding is
well under way. We understand that
the book is representative of progress,
and that a number of new innovations
and Improvements have been made.
The cover is especially attractive. It
Is done in deep blue, scarlet and gold
on cream parchment. There Is the
usual number of cartoons Inflicting
pictorial roasts upon faculty, and stu
dents alike, and no favorites have been
played In apportioning tho knocks and
bestowal of packages. Inasmuch as the
class books afford tho only opportunity
that talented students have in evening
up with the faculty for varloiiB of
fenses and misdemeanors committed
by them, it is only natural to expect
that the present opportunity should
not be thrown away, and we are as
sured that It has not.
The literary department has
branched out considerably and includes
a number of new features. There are
three short stories, a number of fine
sketches and a generous allowance oT
Jokes and roasts. The usual space is
given to fraternities and literary soci
eties. Tho athletic department Is in
teresting because of the extenHLve
treatment of the different branches.
Football, baseball, basketball and ten
nHfe are represented.
As a distinct innovation a number of
colored cartoons will appear. These
have involved added expense and trou
ble, but they add to the appearance of
tno books. The write-ups Jiave all been
compiled by members of the staff, and
hence more regularity has been ob
served in regard to these. The books
represent Btrong efforts and good
taste, and in our mind: its own excel
lence recommends it to the University

In a contest marked by all the ex
citement of bristling argument nnd
scintillating refutation Nebraska
fecorcd her third successive victor j
over Kansas In debate yesterday even
ing by a vote of 2 to 1. Neer before
was Memorial hall packed with a
crowd that dlbplayed greater intend
than the one assembled -there lai.t
night to witness one of the most bril
liant contests in which a debating,
team from this institution ever figured.
It was a grand fight from start to
finish, rcspmbllng the clash of two
columns of apparently equal btrength,
and the final oerthrow of the one
proving the weaker. Kansas was over
whelmed by a mass of Tacts, figures
and logic, the lW( e of which was ail
Preceding the debate the band rend
ered a selection, which was vigorously
applauded by the large crowd that had
already assembled. Chancellor An-d-ews
made a brief address. Galling
addition to tho fact that the debate
Wi iild be no boy's work, but that
tht re was involved a question Involv
ing world's politics. He stated In con
cltt&'on tho question, and Interpreted
it. Ac then introduced Mr. Samuel E.
Bartlett, first speaker for Kansas.
Mr. Bartlett on coming upon the
platform, was greetod by the Kansas
yell. He first took pains to thank
Nebraska for the hospitality shown
tho team. He began by reviewing the
history of the Monroe Doctrine, call
ing attention to the conditions out of
which the contingency arose that de
manded the Monroe Doctrine. He
dwelt upon this point to considerable
length. "The peace and commerce of
the United States no longer require the
Monroe Doctrine." said the speaker,
and he stated three propositions to
support his contention, showing that
European colonies In South America
would not be a menace to us.
Charles A. Sawyer, first on the nega
tive for Nebraska, was greeted by a
rousing round of applause Mr. Saw
yer had hiB books with him, and they
proved of good service. He stated In
beginning that the question of the
Monroe Doctrine depended not upon
the present or-the past, but upon the
future. He aitallzed the question ex
plicitly, showing what Kansas had
Jto prove. He occupied considerable
time In refutation, showing that the
discussion of the question can not be
narrowed down to a small view, but
demanded a much larger one. Ho ex
horted Kansas to come out and debate
fairly and squarely. He showed what
Kansas would have to prove in support
of her arguments before thoy could
be recognized. He repeatedly brought
out this point in an effective. manner,
and made a clean-cut showing of a
chart. In summing up he stated three
important reasons why European na
tions should not be allowed to, enter
J. A. Johnson was the second speaks
er for Kansas, He asserted that Ne
braska had ignored several points. He
discussed Mr. Sawyer's chart, under
taking to show wherein it was insuf
ficient and unreliable. In refuta
tlbn he gave the reasons why South
America was unstable, laying all onto
tho Monroe Doctrine.
Louis F. Llghtner, speaking second
en the negative, called attention to
the analysis laid down by Nebraska,
which Kansas had not disturbed. Kan
sas, according to his views, was ar
raying herself against authorities and
I hard facts. Ho quoted a number of
authorities In support of his argument
and astonished tho audionco by pro
ducing an immense chart, which was a
maw; of facts, figures and dates, but In
these he found Important meanings,
Then ho appealed to Kansas to refute
the argument thus presented. A map
chart was put In good servlco by him
in refuting argument brought by the
J.. W. Kayser spoke last on the af
firmative, ridiculing Nebraska's charts
In a general way. "In a debate," he
said, "it was supposed that the afllrm
atho should lay down the Issues and
that the negatlvo should meet thorn.
Nebraska signally failed to do this."
Ho citod points that Kansas had
brought out, but which Nebraska had
Ignored. He treated the definition
carefully and presented some very ef
Emory R. Buckner spoke last on thr
negative, and received an ovation at
tho start. He summed up the case,
showing matters as they stood up to
that time. He attacked the quotations
mado by the affirmative, and In return
dealt some heavy body blows to the
arguments brought by Kansas, having
recourse to the last chart that was
left in bringing some of his points In
refuting one of ianstts' strongest argu
ments. He succeeded In smashing
Kansas argument regarding several
points, and showed that our interests
would not suffer through a repeal of
tho Monroe doctrine. He toqk Kan
sas' arguments in succession and set
tled them quite conclusively.
Mr. Kayser had charge of tho final
rebuttal for Kansas. He labored to
deal a telling blow for Knnsas and dis
played great power of rebuttal. He
declared again that the negative had
Ignored pertinent questions. "Let the
South American countries work out
thelrown destiny aided by tho United
States and Europe." ho concluded.
Mr. Buckner closed the debate.
In the brief tlmo that It was left to
hlra he dealt with Mr. KayserTs refu
tation, and closed tho debate for Ne
braska In splendid shape. He de
clared, In conclusion, that tho Mon
roe doctrine provided for present dan
ger and not for future conditions.
The judges, who were Chief Justice
Deemcr of tho Iowa' Supreme Court,
John L. Webster of Omaha, and Albert
Watkins of Lincoln, retired for an ex
tended deliberation. Chief Justice
Deomer annourtcednhal the finding of
the judges was two for the negatlvo
and one for tho affirmative. Ho stated
further that delay at arriving at a con
clusion was caused by tho closeness of
During the Interval the band dis
coursed several times, and .a number
of brief nddresses were made. Chan
cellor Andrews called attention to the
statement of the first speaker of the
alhrmatlve, who had expressed hls&Ap
preclation of Nebraska's hospltalny,
and stated that we must be hospitable
upon all occasions to- visiting teams of

these might bo re-established. Profes-
sor Frazer, speaking last, thanked Ne

the faculty and the student body, for
tho hospitality extended. After .the
decision was announced, the threo Ne-
orasira men and two of the Kansas de
baters were tossed by an y admiring
throng of students, this being tho
happy close of a debate la which 'full
credit, must bo given' to he victors,
