DECISION HANDED DOWN
In Favor of Ritchie & Meyer the
Plaintiffs in Error.
Considerable comment has boen
caused among the law students over
tho opinion handed down Thursday by
Chief Justico C. J. Sargent of tho su
preme court of tho law school on tho
case of Robinson vs. Smith. The de
cision was In favor of C. D. Rltcho and
O. M. Meyer, counsel for the plaintiff
lu error over J. D. Ringer and V. A.
Day, counsel for tho defendant Jn er
ror. Tho caso was an ejectment pro
ceeding brought to tho supremo court
December 10 on error to tho district
court, tried below by Roscoo J. Ander
son, one of the Judges of the district
The opinion on this caso has beon
awaited with much Interost. It was
one of Uie most Important cases of the
year, Involving many technical and
difficult points and consuming several
hours in tho ,trlal. Although the opin
ion was In favor of tho counsel for
tho plaintiff tho honors of tho contest
ing lawyers are very ovonly divided.
The losing sldo succeeded In proving
to tho satisfaction of tho court five
out of six points in controversy. How
over, tho one point in which they failed
was very vital and resulted In the loss
of tho" case. The attorneys for 'tho
defendant have announced that a mo
tion for a re-hearing will bo filed.
The debating squad lias lost no time
settling to work. Last night In the
trophy room tho wheels' of an Intel
lectual machine were started and they

terial, for two strong cases, have been
ground out. At the first meeting of

months was arranged. From now on
no busier set of men will bo found

EEW DATES MADE
Scheduling of Baseball Games
ftfunnirur Allnn Kipocta nn Knrljr Completion.
Managor Allen of the baseball team
has not yet arranged only a few games
for tho basoball team this season.
Thero seems to bo the samo difficulty
In completing the basoball schedule
that exists in making out tho footbal)
schedule. Chicago has not completed
her arrangements with Michigan and
Wisconsin and hence will not sched
ule any othor games until this is com
pleted. But it is almost certain that
Nebraska and Chicago will cross bats
Games with Wisconsin and Michigan
aro an Impossibility as those teams
have filled out their schedule. Minne
sota will not havo a team In tho field
this year owing to complications aris
ing from lack of studdnt support of
thlB sport. Theso games bolng cut
out It is very likely that Chicago will
be as far oast as tho team wlH go.
Games havo boon schedulod wltli
Luther college at Docorab, Iowa; Iowa
Agricultural collego at Amos; High
land Park Unlvorsity at De Moines,
and the University of Illinois. Two of
those teams were played by Nobraska
last year and very closo scores was
the result of each. As Illinois was not
Included In Nebraska's schodule last
year It Is hard to foretell the outcome
of that gamo. All theso teams have
played fast ball In tho past and proved
worthy opponents for Nebraska.
Manager Allen has also arranged
tbrco games with Omaha League team
for tho first of April. Theso games ftro
practlco games for both teams and
will not bo considered a part of the
University schedule. A gamo ofball
will also bo played between Omaha
and tho Chicago Nationals on tho Uni
versity campus. By this game- the
students will be permitted to see.ono
of the fastest profesional teams in tho
United States play ball.
Theso games are tho only onoo nr
rangod definitely but It expected that
other dates .will be settled Upon in tho
near future and the plan of work 'de
cided. All men intending to try for" tho
team aro requested to report Monday
evonlng In tho gym, Captain Bender
