CO. A WINS THE CUP
Competitive Drill a Fine Spectacle
The High School Meet.
In one of the closest competitive
drills In the history of the University
Military department, Company A won
out yesterday afternoon on tho cam
pus. Tho day was a perfect one for
tho occasion, the field in good condi
tion, and an Immense crowd was on
hand to cheer their favorites to vic
tory. While Company A had not been
generally picked as a winner before
tho contest, it was realized oven by
those unacquainted with military
movements that her drill would be
hard to beat, and the verdict of the
judges seems to have been coincident
with that of the audience.
Notwithstanding this, however, she
was pressed very hard by both of the
other companies, as the score of each
amply attests. Company A won with
285 out of a possible 30& points. Com
pany B was a very close second witn
281 points, and Company C pressed
Company B hard with 277. But for an
Imperfect "stack arms" it Is possible
that tho latter might have tied or even
beaten the victors. A similar misfor
tune affected Cs standing also.
Much of the credit for Company A's
victory must go to Captain Stanley,
who has earned for himself the repu
tation of being one of the best soldiers
tho department ever turned out. He
has raised his company from the low
est place last year to first this. This
Is the first time since 1901 that Com
pany A has won out, and the second
time In the history of the University.
Company B won In the Individual,
through Corporal Skeen. Sergeant
Scrlbner of Company C was second,
and Sergeant Crites of Company A
third. At the close of the exercises
Governor Mickey presented the prizes,
with a few appropriate words. The
usual mementos, a gold medal to tho
winner of the individual, and silver
medals to tho second and third com
petitors, were the prizes. The Omaha
cup was, of course, Company A's re
ward. Tho judges were:
Capt. Frank A. Cook, Sub. Dept.,
U. S. A.
Capt. C. W. Castle, 30th, Infantry,
U. S. A.
Capt. Harry 0. Wlllard, 5th Cavalry,

Nebraska Wins and Loses in First
Sets of Singles.
Yesterday Nebraska and Minnesota
played two sets of singles. Cassldy
went down before Welner from Min
nesota in a hard played match, by a
score of 8-G, 6-3, in favor of Jhe Gopher
Steady, hard, clean tennis was the
characterlc of tho entire match, and It
was nobody's game till the very end.
Werner has had considerable experi
ence in tournament playing, and while
he puts up a very hot article of ten
nis, Cassldy was by no means easy
pudding for the Minnesota champion,
and made him fight for every point.
The match between Scribner and
Thompson contained some very sen

In tho first set Scribner started with
a rush, winning tho first three games.
Then the Minnesota man took his turn
and Scribner pulled out the set with a
scoro of 7-5. Tho second set con
tained some brilliant net work by
Scribner, and Thompson did some fine
driving along the side lines and repeat

Scribner went after the next set with
blood In his eye and landed the match
for Nebraska by winning this set by
the score of 6-2.
Throughout the brilliant work of
Scribner at the net and the persistent
and accurate lobs of Thomnnnn mmio
the play most Interesting.
I lie match this morning at 10 o'clock
between Scribner and Werner will bo
one of tho best ever played on the
University courts. A match will
also be played between CasBidy and
Thompson, after which the doubles
will bo pulled off. This promises to bo
tho event of tho tournament, and a
largo crowd will probably bo on hand
to watch Its progress. Present indi
cations show that it will be closely
contested all tho way through.
Interesting Program at Memorial
Hall Yesterday Morning.
The exercises at 11 o'clock yester
day mornlne for tho nrlnrinnlH nn,i
superintendents of high scnools were
conducted In a creditable manner. Dr.
Ward, of tho University, was tho pre
siding ofilcer, and opened tho pro
gram by an address of welcome to the
high school students and professors,
which was productive of some excel
lent thought. Ho also stated the pur
pose of tho day as one of great im
portance. Tho first speaker Introduced by Dr.
Ward was Mr. C. M. Bracelln, of Oma
ha, who Is well known by University
people as u student and debator. Ho
talked In a pleasing manner and wag
loudly applauded by tho audience
Superintendent Stephens of the Lin
coln schools, was tho second speak
er. His talk was that of encour
agement for the University student and
urging the high school student to lal.er
enroll himself with them.
The superintendents of Beatrice aid
Wayne were tho last two who ad
dressed tho audience and their theme
was In the main an appeal for higher
education and an eulogy for the fac
ulty of the University.
After tho program Mr. B. G. Lewis
in a well worded presentation speech,'
presented Mrs. Raymond with a very
handsome present, which as he said
carried with it the best wishes and the
appreciation of several hundred stu
dents, of the excellent music furnished
by her during the year.
