Valuable Adjunct to Medical College
Depends on Legislative Appro
priation to Purchase Build
Ing 8ite in Omaha.
' That certain Omaha physicians are
ready to finance- the erection In Om
. aha of an orthopedic hospital to bo
come an adjunct of the University of
Nebraska medical collego was tho an
nouncement made yesterday by Sen
ator Ransom of tho state legislature.
Tho gift will amount to at least $50,
.000 and It will bo mado available
Whenever tho state shall devoto $15,
000 to the purchase of a suitable site
for the Institution.
' The announcement of tho gift was
vniade by the Omaha senator In tho
bourse of a hearing of the senate
.'committee on appropriations. Sen
jator Ransom startled the members
ikf the committee with his declaration
'hat an appropriation of $15,000 would
fsocure a donation of at least .$50,000
to the university. The donors of the
gift are Omaha men, presumably phy
sicians, and their names are unknown.
Tho provisions of tho bequest are
that the stato furnish $15,000 towards
a suitable site and that the physicians
will then furnish the additional money
necessary for tho purchase of tho
ground and for tho erection of a mod
ern orthopedic hospital, complete in
every way.
Will Be Valuable. '
The senate committee was naturally
attracted by the Omaha proposition.
- The need""of"anortliopedlc"hospltal In
Omaha has been folt for somo time
and the chance to secure a thoroughly
up-to-dato -Institution is recognized as
being a valuable opportunity. At
present tho state orthopedic hospital
Is located in Lincoln and is not ac
cesible either to medical students of
the university nor to the cases so fre
quently discovered among tho poor of
the metropolis.
In caso the provisions of the donors
should bo- mot by tho state and tho
new hospital should be built, Omaha
and Nebraska will have a thoroughly
modern placo for tho treatment of
deformities of all natures and par
ticularly of tho llmbg, Especially vlll
there be facilities for the treatment
of deformities inherent "In tho child
since birth.'
Aside from this humanitarian' value
tho hospital will bo a most valuable
adjunct to tho clinical facilities of tho
university medical - school. Tlio last
two years of the medical course aro
now. taken by the students' in Omaha
In order that they may fiavo tho ad
vantage of the hospitals of the city,
and thq, additional facilities would bo
Indeed appreciated. Tho standing of
Nebraska among tho medical schools
b"f the country, which Is already high,
could nPt but bo increased consider
f ably but such an addition,
Donation a Surprise, t
The announcement of tho donation
wtttia compleo surprIsof to all saver
a fow on tho inside. Senator Ransom
t .-made his statement in tho course of
a hearing' rolatlvo to certain appro
priations for state institutions, Ho de
clares, ithat tho proposition Is abso
lutely sound and that the Omaha men,
are prepared to back up1 their agree
ment "with nil tho coin 'necessary ,to
given tlio atatc the right kind of an
The story of the donation spread
rapidly about tho city and was respon
sible for a number of exaggerated and
unfounded rumors. Ono story had a
fund of several hundred 'thousand dol
lars given to the state Institution for
tho purpose of making- general im
provements in tho way of new build
ings on tho city campus and a further
enlargement of tho curriculum. Ono
of the less sensational, but still coh-
Bldornbly enlarged Btorles, found Us
way Into tho columns of nn afternoon
sheet nnd theroby gained considerable
credence among city reader This
story related that $100,000 was to bo
given Instead of $50,000, and In other
ways made a story that was worthy
of a scarohead.
Scottish Sword Dance at the Gym
Exhibition Tonight.
The Irish folk dance, or eight
handed reel, which Is to be put on
by the girls under ' tho direction of
Miss Towno. is expected to prove one
of the best features of the gymnasium

o'clock, nt tho cross-roads and danco

occasions and was taught to Miss
Towno Avhlle visiting at Klllarney last
summer. Klllarney is famous
throughout Ireland for Its dancing,
and as tho "elght-lumd reel" was con
sidered tho best dance for the lads
and lassies across tho water, It ought
to prPve Interesting nt least to the
students of Nebraska.
Another dance, which will be put on
by Miss Hattio Rollings, is tho Scot
tish sword dance. This is a dance, of
historic times in Scotland and is "per

Coach of Nebraska Football Team for
Two Years Will Return to Take
Charge of 8quad Next
Coach "Billy" Fox b bunch of corn
husker baseball artists put ono on tho
Wosleyan twlrlers at University Plnco
yesterday In tho opening game of tho
season by taking the long end of a 3
to 1 scoro in a seven inning contest.
Tho variety or ball put up by the
cornhnskers was a Burpr,iso to them
selves as well as to tho handful of
their supporters who witnessed tho
initial meeting with the Methodists.
It was rathor classy and gives prom
ise of the production of a strong nlno
for tho Scarlet and Cream.
Pitcher Fnrthing, who occupied tho
lab for the Methodists, had all kinds
of signs hung pn the Fox trlbo and,
but for a neat little single in tho sec
ond round when tho cornhuskors had
two mon on bases, he might have kept
the scoring even. As it wore ho
hurled the ball with a speed and n
curve that enabled him to strike out
thirteen of the Nebraska players.
Tries Two Pitchers.
Coach Fox allowed Mathers and
Olmstead to do the twirling for his
pupils. Tho former did well until the
last of tho fifth inning when ho gavo
signs of weakening and allowed two
singles. In the sixth 'Olmstead took
the slub and permitted none to bingle
out a safe drive He exhibited a
slight wlldness that will have to -be
conquered beforo he can become the
real goods in tho box.
"Pip" Cooke, whom the wnga at tho
staid old Institution liked to connect
with "peek-a-boo" plays, proved IiIb
worth. Ho hold down tho center gard
ner and in his only chance, which was
a difficult ono, mndo more than good,
running a long distance nnd putting
tho safoty mlt on thro ball with tho
art of a veteran.
Tho cornhuskors lined up as fol

Tho Joint hnnqiiot ldoa Is new Uit
Nebraska nnd hns boon tried nt very
few colleges ho far. It is a. combina
tion or tho two organizations In h
hi'ntinor not yet nttomptcd nnd Is a
plan which will undoubtedly gain fa
vor from tho very novelty of its In
ception. For mnny yssara past ,tho
"foods" of tho Y. M. C. A. havo boon
memorable events but tho girls havo
liad nothing to compare with thorn.
This year it wns decided that, In koop- .
Ing with the general plan of combin
ing tho work of tho two soclotlos
wherovor possible, It would bo well tp
Invito tho girls into ono of tho ban
quots. Better Than Usual.
Tho ldoa haying gained fayor with
both boys and girls, details' wor'o
plnnned. It was deomod necessary to
havo' a more elaborate spread $than
heretofore If tho ovent was4 to bb$Vhat
It should. To that ond arrangements
hnvo been mado with the, St. pXuTs
Ladles' society for nn excellent ritanti,
rated in tho 50-cent clnss. Tho ladies

Y. W. C. A. A fifth will lip by an
alumnus of tho university and! tho last
will bo by a member of tho, faculty. .
,. Come as Like. ;' ' '
The committee In charge of the
event wjsh it distinctly understood
that there nedd bo no hesitancy on
tho part of olther girls' or fellows In
coming unaccompan'-ed. It is expect
ed that there will hq-a large majority
of girls unaccompanied, although pair
ing off win bo nllowed. Similarly It
Is thought quite likely that a number
of tho masculine element will , como
In droves. Tho thing that the asso
ciations, desire most of all is to see n.
good sized typical crowd present. In
order that the hew departure may; bo
glvon an auspicious start and that tho
way may be laid for further entertain
ments of like character.
