In tho game with tho Guys Saturday
the Nebraska team was whollopcd by
the scoro of 15 to 2. Tho leaguors
had things their own way during the
HockenbniTf the Aurora phenomena,
was on tho Blab for tho Greens for
five innings and had tho collegians
at his mercy.
Olmstcad, Mathows, Ward, Steven
son and Fleming did tho pitching for
the cornhuskers. Olmstcad was in the
box for four innings and tho profes
sionals found him to bo quite easy
money. Mathers twirled tho fifth and
sixth rounds nnd was batted reely.
Ward occupied tho rubber in tho
seventh Inning nnd did well. He was
hit by a pitched ball when at the bat
in this inning and was forced to go
to tho bench.
Stevenson "went In for the eighth
round and was far too easy for more
than ono session. Fleming strove to
hold down tho slab In the next inning
nnd failed to puzzle the leaguers.
Sturtzeneggor played right field, be
ing shifted from the first sack, which
.waB hold down by Clark, who, in the
other games of the season, had played
the right garden. Dudgeon held .down
tho Job in loft garden. Captain Belt
zer was at third, where ho played a
gopd.game. Mejtcalt show,ed .upJn-An.o!
style at short. Greenslit apparently
had an off day and did not do any
excellent work at tho second sack nor
at tho bat. "Bobby" Carroll as back
stop played a brilliant game.
Five games have been played in tho

Thota, Chi is leading on tho weBt side
with a record of two games won nnd
none lost. On the east sldo tho Sig
ma Chls are at the head of the list

Delta Tau Delta teams, clashed in the
I most exciting game pt the present"

by a score of P 0 ,8. Tho teams wero
ovenly matched and it, took kthe final
round of. the last Inning. to decide the
contest. . '
Delta Tau , Plays Gppd Sail.
Delta -Tau Delta did some good stick
work, which, in connection with sev
eral free passes to first base, allowed
them to score in all excepting the first
inning. Woodward was 'on the slab
for Delta Tau Delta and made nine of
the 'opposing- team go ,'to tho bench
without punishing' the ball.
Pool pitched good, ball for Alpha
Theta Chi, but 'was wild at times, nnd
this fault nearly proved fatal. The
feature, oj the game was a sensational
catch in loft field by ''DeakM Drake,
who pulled a long high drivo but' oif
