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.

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. ARRANGE FOR BARBECUE. Law Committees Named to Charge of Affair.
