In a four Inning contest which whb
nothing short of a good farcial com
edy the Cornhuskers took the Univer
sity of Omaha for a good drubbing by

sky juice which completely filled the
Omaha was unable to see any of
Jimmy Rodman's slants and made
three outs on easy pop ups. In the
last half of this inning tho Huskers
Immediately scored two runs.
The second Inning was little better
for the visitors and they succeeded
in fanning the ozone for three beau
tiful strike outs.
Tho Huskers duplicated the first
Inning In this and gave over the bats
to the Omaha lads.
The third Inning was a duplication
of the first two for the lads from the
metropolis but the HuBkers got on
their hitting clothes and after a
couple of two base hits by May and
Captain Towle intermingled with a
single or two the locals were able
to score six runs.
In the fourth frame a three base hit
by Perclval and the second hit of the
day off Rodman saved the visitors
from a shutout. Frank for Nebraska

Sophomore Class to
Abandon Hop Because
of Conflicting Dates
The Sophomore Hop committee
have decided to abandon the class
hop this semester. It has been found
impossible to secure dates at Capital
Beach on account of so many other
dances being held there and it was
therefore deemed advisable to dis
continue the project. Instead there
will no doubt be a dance held early
next semester under the present ad
The SoprronTOTT clntt- -4 haudk
capped by a deficit of $65 hanging
over from last semester and with tho
numerous events yet to be held by
various organizations the risk is too
great to take any chances of Increas
ing the debt. An attendance of -a-sonablo
diminsions cannot be assured
and without this it would bo fatal to
proceed further in the matter.
The froshman class have almost
decided to abandon their hop of May
17 for similar reasons as they have
also come to the conclusion that there
are too many other functions during
tho remainder of the semeBtor. The
Junior Relief Hop will take place
upon May 16 without fall as this is
necessary to raise sufficient funds to
get the class out of debt. The tickets
for this event have been on sale for
the past week and quite a number
have been Bold.
The combined Senior masquerade
and hop will be given upon the even
ing of May 20. Tho fact that it is tho
night before Ivy Day will do much to
swell the attendance at this dance
so that it Is also assured of success.
