number of tryouts were necessary

Tuesday, April 18.
Both debates will bo on the same
question which is stated as follows:
"Resolved, That the second sentence
of the second section of the Four
teenth Amendment to the National
Constitution should bo repealed." This
sentence reads as follows: "When tho
right to vote at any election
Is denied to any male inhabitants of a
state being twenty-one years of age
and citizens of the United States; or in
any way abridged, except for the par
ticipation in rebellion of other crime,
the basis of representation therein shall
be reduced in- tho proportion which
the number of such male citizens shall
boar to the wholo number of male clt-
izens twenty-one years of age in such
The question is a live and up-to-date
question, involving the problem of
suffrage and negro franchise and is
one which is before the National Con
gress and the American people today.
It is perhaps' the most complex ques
tion ever debated by our debating
team for years. Tho preparation
under the supervision of Prof. M. M.
Fogg has required four months of hard
labor, and a great many facts which
the squad have worked out through a
thorough original research have beea
unearthed for tho first timo.
These huge hunks of facts backed
by unimpeachable logic will be hurled
at our opponents from the rostrum of
Memorial Hall in tho first battle occur
ring a week from tomorrow night and
tho second a week from next Tuesday.

Tho second gamo with Omaha's
western league toam, played yesterday
afternoon, wias finished within tho time
limit and, therefore, was not entan
gled with "Chaseology" or any othor
"malicious science" maneuvers. This
feature of tho gamo was indeod re
freshing to the "fans," who dlBllke to
have tho after-smack of a good gamo
soured by a dose of "bayonet pills."
The game brought out tho good points
of Nebraska's men and Bhowed tho in
fluence of the game played on the day
Tho visitors realized that thoy wero
not playing marbles and changed
pitchers twico; once In the second
half of the fourth and again in the
second of the seventh inning.
Dort stuck it out for Nebraska and
put tho ball over as well In the last as
in the first inning. With an occa
sional exception his support was ex
cellent. Tho first inning was fruit
less on both sides, leaving a man on
second for Omaha and one on third for
the Uni. But In the second inning two
leaguers slipped around the diamond.
The homo team worked hard, played
good, consistent ball, but tho long
hard training of the opponents showed
1 1 Itself again In the fourth inning when
uondlng crossed home plato, making
tho score 3 to 0.
Two sensational plays in the seventh
brought out great bursts of enthusiasm
from tho grandstand. Rine, at second,
made the first one when he stopped
a buzzer, which he reached' with great
difficulty after turning around com
pletely, and landed it on first with
only a few seconds to spare. Tho
second one was a single handed catch
out near the fence by left fielder Fen
Ion, Tho only homo run of the afternoon
was made In the ninth, when Howard,
of Omaha brought Welch In
with him for two scores. The game
resulted In a score of 5 to 0 In favor
of the visiting team.
Five men walked to first Two 'Var
sity men reached first on balls and one
was hit by tho pitcher. The Unl, pitch
er hit one Omaha man and allowed
one man his base oa balls.
