Student body will have a chance to
see tho varsity baseball team in ac

Reason on tho homo grounds, and tho
Cotncr collegians aro to bo tho vic
tim's. Coach Carroll has been point
lng his men for this contest and tho
gamo. promises to bo warm and fast,
as the collegians have a strong aggre
gation and want to add the scalps of
Iho Cornhuskcrs to their present col
lection. Next Tuesday tho Highland Park
boys como for ono gamo, and tho
stenographers aro reputed to havo
ono of tho fastest aggregations In tho
city bf Des Moines. They havo al
ways given tho Cornhusker nino a
hard' fight in gamos in provious years,
and this year they aro planning to
show up as well hero as thoy havo
The freshmen havo a good strong
aggregation to meet next Thursday,
when they meet tho Bellevue boys on
the athletic field. The Presbyterians
have ono of tho best collego toams In
tho Btato and they oxpe!t to win tho
college championship of tho stato in
baseball this season.
The baseball situation regarding tho
eligibility of a large number of tho
men of tho various teams of tho Mis
souri Valley conforenco still remains
problematical. A recent communica
tion from W. C. Lansdon, genoral
manager of athletics at the University
of Kansas, shows where Kansas stands
on the eligibility matter. For tho
paBt few ydars Kansas and Nebraska
havo stood sido by side on all matters
Relating to athletics In the Missouri
Valley conference. This year when
Nebraska refuges to certify that her
men havo played summer baseball,
Kansas refuses to certify to her play
ers. Tho action on the summer base
ball matter Is ono which has caused
considerable comment, but which It is
hoped will not Injuro the athletic re
lations of tho two schools.
In his letter to tho Dally Nobraskan
Mr. Lanedcn states that Gibbs and
Hoffman have both graduated from tho
university and that Harlan is at pres
ent paid ccach df tho freshman team
at K. U. Regarding the other four
men of the Jayhawker team, ho states
that tho men are strictly amateurs.

SevliTnncf HoIzer. who Kansns says
is purely an amateur, no absolute proof
can ho produced that these men have
played summer ball. Information was
furnished the Nebraska management
Ihat Sevin played with the Steven6
club and this information was given
by a Manhattan graduate. This man
stated' 'that he knew Sevin and saw

played in college. Tho result of tho
