MEN ARE MUCH THE WORSE
FROM THEIR LONG TRIP.
Cooke and Schmidt Both Have 1,000
Per Cent In Fielding Average.
The Varsity baseball team arrived
home Saturday evening from Its long
trip of thirteen games. The team
during the trip traveled about 2,500
miles. This was partly responsible
for their many defeats. It Is a cinch
that a lot of men can't arise at 2 a. in.
and travel until 10 or 11 a. m. then
play ball. It takes all the ginger out
of men to lose sleep when playing
hard games. Probably a coach would
have kept a strict watch over the
boys, and in this way aided much.
The schedule for this trip consisted
or hard games. It was not the In
tention of the management to pick
out easy teams, but Instead he sched
uled the fastest baseball teams In the
West. But granting this the team
had no right to lose any games with
the exception of Ames, Chicago and Il
linois. The men went up naglnst the
hardest and best twirlers that a Ne
braska team has ever faced. This
probabb accounts for the poor batting
aerage of the team. One thing was
evident that the men were unable
to hit the ball at critical times. Tho
team, when It left Lincoln, was one
or the hardest hitting teams Nebras
ka over put in the field.

Promise to Show Commercial Men a
Hot Time the 25th.
The faculty under the management
of Prof. Caldwell are fast rounding Into
shape for the big contest with the
Commercial club, May 25. The gen
eral opinion of those who have seen
the faculty play ball is that the Com
mercial's will have to go some to land
first place. Two teams have been
practicing hard and the way the differ
ent pitchers twist the sphere would
make Rube Waddell look green with
envy. The back stops are not a bit
slower and can smother any kind of a
ball sent over. Luckey Is tho likely
man for first base as he is an old time
leaguer, having played with New York
Nationals. This tall gentleman with
the long arms will hand a certificate
to any one who knocks or throws a
ball his way. Loveland will hold down
second, and if unable wil be backed up
At shortstop F. D. Heald will plant
himself, and will proceed to classify
every thing that comes in his territory.
With Schautz, or Piper at third, Dean
in centerfleld, and Holman at right
field the team Is almost complete But
Prof. Candy must not be forgotten as
he Is to romp In the left garden. A
straight line being the shortest dis
tance between two points, Candy will
play In direct line with the home plate,
and he promises that no obtuse angles
will be allowed. These men will be
well backed by many others, and tho
prospects are exceeding!) bright for a
neat sum to turn over to tho College
Settlement benefit. Tho lineup of
the two teams as they practice is as
1ST TEAM 2ND TEAM.

Awards to Arrive Soon.
The awards from the St. Louis Ex
position management, due to tho
Women's Clubs of Nebraska and to
the contributors of the educational,
mining, and agricultural exhibits, can,
according to notice received by the
Dopartmen of Geology a few days be
expected any time. It Is probable,
however, that they will not arrive for
Nebraska contributors. Though a
large majority of these are silver, yet
a goodly number of, gold medals stand
To Nebraska's credit. The manage
ment of the exposition is attempting
to get all of tho awards out within
eight months after the close of the
Exposition, whereas the management
of the Columbia Exposition was unable
to accomplish this in less than a year.

The play given iy the Juniors at
Convocation yesterday proved to be
very successful. Although only a short
time was put on the preparation of the
play the smoothness with which it
went off would have reflected credit
on a cast with much more practice.

acts. Every member of the cast
handled his, part skillfully. James .An
