Baseball Team Back After Win
ning Majority of Games.
After tho moEt successful trip In the
history of Nebraska baseball, the
Cornhuskers returned from tbe cast
last Saturday night over the Burling
ton. Tho men are all enthusiast it
over the results of the tour and re
port that thc were eveiyu he ic le
etived with the utmost courtesy and
hospitality. Manager Hell gave our
reporter a brief account of the trip
which was essentially as follows
The team was unable to plaj un
til Tuesday after lealng Lincoln Sat
urday, Sunday and Monday an almost
continuous rain made the ojntlook
gloomy. On Tuesday the team arrived
in Deeorah, where a royal reception
was accorded the men. A dance was
held in their honor that evening and
every effort was made to make tneir
visit a pleasant one. The next da,
however. Nebraska was defeated by a
score of 10 to 0 in a rather loosely
played game. The team had had no
practice for over a week and did not
play in anything like its usual form.
The ride to Minneapolis was long and
exhausting, but the Cornhuskers took
a wonderful brace there and defeated
the Gophers by a score of 10 to 1 Man
ager Bell is very enthusiastic over this
game. "No team in the whole coun
try," he said, "could have defeated us
that day. It was the best game played
in the history of Nebraska baseball.
The only way Minnesota scored at all
was through a hit and two errors
tho only ones we made. The Gophers
treated us in elegant shape, nothing
waa too good for us."
The next day the Cornhuskers re
ceived their only deserved defeat, at
the hands of Bololt. An all night ride
had put tho team somewhat on the
bum, but the game was a good one,
Tho arrival of the team at Chicago
was the occasion of a huge jollifica
tion and reunion of old Nebraska men
in the metropolie. "Deac" Koehlei
met them at the train, ana Coach Siagg
entertained them aL supper at "The
Commons" the big University club
house. Tobln, and Adams and a host
of old Cornhuskers were on hand and
at the game on the following day Ne
braskans by the score were meeting
and shaking hands with old acquaint
ances. And though, through a short
run of 111 luck the game was lust by
a score of 3 to 1, our team put up a
better game than, the Maroons, which
-was acknowledged by the latter them-
ihe game which had been scheduled
tho professional team at South
was cancelled, and the team Im-
ired Its opportunity by witnessing
f game between Illinois, and Notre
ie, whom they played next day. In
game, Illinois, through pure luck,
victor, In a long ten-inning strug-

the Cornhuskers success was
Lched tho next afternoon, when by a
ro Of 5- to 4 they repeated the di ub-
ig which Illinois had administered
day before. This was the game for
lose winning Nebraska would have
llllngly sacrificed the whole remain-
Bchedule, and capped the climax
the whole trip.
Thc games played on the return trip
jro all comparatively easy. A late

rrlvlng In Galesburg until 5 o'clock
10 next afternoon. The men dressed
their ear and on their arrival were
Irlven at dnce to the ball field, where
loy defeated Knox In a swift battle
loforo tho latter were really aware
it what was happening. The score
ras 10 to2.
An all night ride did not affect ma
terially tho showing made in the game
way tli rough . The game was easilj
ours bj a score of 9 to 4. Highland
Park was also a (inch although she
put up a snappy game throughout, and
made but three errors to our eight A
good contest may be expected in tho
return game, which will take place the
17th of this Ma).
Cn ighton was the last team played
and provided a good contest in spite
of tho shut-out they experienced. They
play at the F & M. park next Thurs
day. At cery place the te'am went the ut
most hospitality was accorded it Man
ager Bell echoes the statement of the
Chicago "Maroon." that the Cornhusk
eis are gentlemen, and sajs that the
trip wms absolutely tree from the pett
squabbling and bickering which usual-'
1 accompany such a tour. Eer
morning at II o'clock the team met for
a "knocker's session." Anyone who
had any objection or suggestion to of
fer in regard to the management or
things bad the opportunity to oice
them at this time and kept the peace
