GAGE WORK IS ON
Battery Candidates are Working
Sopha Against Froslimeu ut Ilnnkot
Many candidates have reported and
are at work each day in the gymna
sium for places on the baseball team.
Captain Bender has divided the time
bo that each candidate has fifteen min
utes for practice in the cage. The
men reporting aro all candidates for
positions on the battery. The infield
men have not begun work yet and will
not until the team can work outside.
This will commence about the middle
of March if the weather permits.
The preparatory work in the cage
has brought out some good men and
there-Is much material that may prove
to be 'varsity playeis before the sea
son ends. All the men who played on
the- team last season are back with
possibly a few exceptions and besides
these many new men have appeared.
Many of the new candidates are expe
rienced men having played on some
college, city, or high school team. At
the present time fourteen men are at
work in the cage for positions.
The candidates for backstop are
Hyde, Turner, Carroll, Hawkcs, Barta,
Dc?nslow and Bender. Of these men
Barta and Bender are probably the
most promising for the position. There
is plenty of time, however, before the
team is chosen to develop other men
for this place. As twirlers Morse,
Dirks, Dort, Turner, Kurtz, Mlillikan
and Nllsson have reported. Morse is
the most prominent among these men
and will likely curve the sphere for
Nebraska the greater part of the sea
son. Dirks and Dort are other men
who nay prove- to be Morse's chief as
sistants. Among these men are some who
played on the 'varsity or the second
team last season. They aie: Bender,
Baita, Morse Dort and Denslow.
This leaves the majority of the can
didates new1 men and unknown in Ne
braska baseball history.
Captain Bender will announce a
meeting of the candidates for other
positions on the team in the near fu
ture, as soon as work tan be com
The first game of the inter-class ser
ies will be played on Friday night, Feb.
24, between tile Freshman and Sopho
mores. This game should prove to bo
very Interesting- as both teams have
been practicing together for some
time. The Sophomores have had the
more practice and more games with
outside teams. The last game with the
Lincoln high school resulted In a vic
tory for Lincoln high school by the de
cisive score of C5 to 11.
Dr. Clapp will give some gymnastic
work between halves assisted by the
men who are trying for the gymnastic
team. The price of admission being
very low la within the reach of all sup
porters of these two teams and a good
.crowd is desired.

Rabbi Frederick Cohn of Omaha, de1
lixered an address at Convocation yes
terday on "American and Judaism."
His theme was suggested by tho ap
proaching anniversary of the birthday
of Washington. The address was an
eulogy of the character and career of
Washington, his uniqueness and mi
ce mparable greatness and his purely
unselfish services for his country em
bodying the spiilt of Americanism
which he defined as "freedom, justice
and humanity." These ideals Rabbi
Cohn said wore essentially Jewish
ideals. The words graven on tho Lib
erty Bell were taken from the old tes
tament. "Proclaim Liberty through
out the Land and to all tho Inhabi
tants Thereof." These facts explain
why the Jews are such fervent Ameri
cans, because they found in American
