wli'u h two school have crossed bats for
l lie iia-t tun iais Tlie Kansas teum
is a ei strong one and is planning
on making this game the climax in
their conte-:s with the Cornhuskers.
Tlie Cornhiisk' i players are deter
mined that the Rami shall result in
n victory for the local nine.
Iast fall the Kansas football team
came down lull of vim and vigor with
fond expectations of taking the Corn
huskcrs into camp and they nearly
did it but the score was 14 to !
in favor or the 'Iluskers In basket
ball too, they gave the 'Iluskers oil"
of the hardest runs for the champion
ship they ever had Incensed by los
ing these two valley championships
they are coming into our own terri
tory today for the battle of their
lives.
The lineup for the Cornhuskers to
day will b practically the same as
the one which went against Omaha
and Kearney Normal. Beckoff will
mount the hjab for Nebraska and do
the rotating. Ilarle acting in the
capacity of receiver, Underwood at
his old position on first, Jamison,
second, Haskell third and Flory
shortstop In the outer gardens it
Js likely that Captain Towle, Ernie
Frank and Art May will assume their
regular positions.
The strength of the Kansas team
is not an unknown quantity for they
as well as Nebraska broke even with
the Kansas Aggies in a two game
series. They have played several
games with Missouri, Washington,
Baker and in almost every instance
.have they come out victorious.
The Nebraska team is indeed much
stronger than most of the people
about school have realized. They
have met and vanquished the state
college with little trouble. The batting
,of the team is better" than most
learns afford. The fielding is fast
and classy. The nine men work to
gether as one and have that pep and
ginger which is really essential to a
good ball team. Captain Towle has
his men going good now and it is
up to the students to come out and
see Nebraska vanquish the old time
rivals from the south.

ATHLETIC LEADERS SPEAK
All Confident of Victory Stiehm Says
Game Will Be Decisive Towle
Says Team Is
Winner.
A rousing rally was held yesterday
morning in the chapel. The crowd
could have been larger but the scarc
ity of spectators was probably due to
the fact that but a small part of the
student body was aware in advance
that a rally was scheduled.
Clayton Itadcliffe presided and in
troduced the speakers with remarks
of a nature appreciated by the audi
ence. He was frequently cheered and
with the assistance of Harry Coffee
succeeded in getting the crowd, what
there was of it, enthusiastic over the
prospects of the game this afternoon.
Coach Stiehm was the first speak
er. He outlined to his hearers thy
crisis now existing in baseball at Ne
braska and reminded them that the
Interest shown in the game this after
noon would decide for the athletic
board whether to maintain this sport
next year or abolish it.
Guy Reed told of some of the finan
cial dllllculties met with In track and
baseball and foretold a fast track
meet with the Jayhawkers Saturday
afternoon.
At this point the track and dia
mond teams were forced forward to
the platform and given a hearty
cheer.
Dr Maxey gave the next talk. Ho
commented on the small attendance
not only of students but of members
of the teams being rallied. In regard
to the game today he Baid: "Far be
it from mo to boast but I want to say
in a spirit of calmness and firmness
that In the game last Saturday we
had Kearney outclassed and since I
know nothing to signify that the Kan
sas team Is any better than the Nor
mal team, I predict that we will out
class Mieni also."
Max Towle told a story of Coach
Stiehm and himself as upholders of
Nebraska's social standing at a Bchooi
which they were viBlting a short time
past. He told the audience that he
had a good team and that they would
do their best with Kansas.
