THIRTY-FIVE MEN OUT
FIR BASEBALL TEAM
BIQ
8QUAD PUT THROUGH GEN
ERAL WORKOUT.
MEANS A SCRAMBLE TOR POSITIONS
Large Number of Candidates for Bat
tery, Infield and Outfield, so Fast
Team Seems Probable.
GOING TO PHILIPPINES
Allen T. Newman Is Appointed Lieu
tenant In the Constabulary
8ervlce.
Thlrty-flvo men reported for the first
two days of baseball practice, and
with these as a starter It Is thought
that tho squad will Increase somo
until the varsity team Is finally picked.
Tho large numbor Is duo chiefly to
the fact that Nebraska has not had a
baseball team for two yearB This
gives all of the men an oqual chanco
for the team, as moBt of them are of
an unknown quantity. Nb attempt
has yet boon made to try any of the
men out for respective positions, but
the plan has been along the lines of a
general workout. Each man Is being
given a chance to work out just as
suits his fancy, and after abput an
hour or so the squad takes a run
around tho field and then hikes Into
tho gym.
Next week will see the work begun
In earnest, and the different men tried
out in their various positions. Tho
following men are now engaged In
practice:
Dozen Battery Candidates.
Catchors Buol, Green, Krause, Pear
son and Towle.
PitchorB Armstrong, Carr, Purdy,
Rodman, Schmidt, Wake and WItaon.
Infield Andrews, Buck, Dlers, Guil
foll, Hartwell, Haskell. Flory, Jones,
Lofgron, Noon, Underwood and Whiso
nand. Outfield Ballah, Drake, E. Frank.
Hale, Harte, Hayes, Hyde, Lehr. Oliver,
Parker and Smith.
For tho backstop position Buol,
Towle and Pearson seem to have tho
edge. All three men havo had con
siderable experience and Bhould bo
able to handle tho receiving end of
tho team. Buol and Pearson are both
known In University baseball. For
tho phchlng BtafT the team haB tvo
known men, Carr and Rodman, both
of whom are pltchors of varsity cali
bre. JuBt what tho others will pro
duce is hard to forecast. Underwood
at first and Lofgren and Haskell for
third aro tho only lnflelders whoso
records aro known, as all three have
played University baseball. The rest
of tho men aro as yet unknown and a
few surprises may develop before the
end of tho coming week. In tho out
field Ballah, E. Frank, Hyde and Oliver
aro tho most promising, yet one or
two fast gardonerB may bo developed
out of tho remaining candidates
In all It loks like a good squad, and
as Coach Stelhm is now busy getting
games for tho team, It will not be
long before the University fan will
have a chanco to wltnesB his favorite
pastime.

DRAMATIC CLUB TRYOUTB.
About Thirty Aspirants to Obtain HIs
tronlc Honors.
Tho supreme court has declared
legal the act of tho logislaturo appro
priating $100,000 for a laboratory
building on the campus of tho medical
college of tho University of Nebraska
In Omaha.
A decision written by Judge Lotton
upholds tho law In every particular.
The decision affirms the Judgment of
tho district court of Lancaster county,
which was that tho law was valid.
Dr. Samuel J. Stewart of Hastings ap
pealed from tho lower court to the
supreme court. Ho alleged that tho
act was unconstitutional because it
amends prior statutes without repeal
ing them or referring to thorn. It was
alleged that tho act is class legislation
because it will result in tho construc
tion of a medical college building to
the exclusion of certain schools of
medicine. It was also alleged that
tho act In effect amends an old statute
which orovides that all University
I buildings shall bo within four miles
of tho state capltol building.
On this latter point the supreme
court says the logislaturo can enlarge
or relax any building limitations it
may havo established.
