success l.t year the manager has
imsled himself with making dates with
a ninny lame teams as iioaslble and
the chances for a large number of
pirnes are very good.
The mtuiaRement seems 'to be a little
timlil about making dates., for games to
he played at Lincoln. This Is due to
the fact that a university baseball
tarn has never yet received proper
-upiwrt by either the citizens or the
Mudents ami because there is no suit
able ball Held at present.the M street
ivrk having 'een plowed up.
The preliminary practice In the ar
mry has l'n very satisfactory both
n olnt of numbers engaged In the
work and the results accomplished.
The training consists In arm, leg and
trunk exercises. A hard run of ten
minutes is taken after the exercises,
and the players are all carefully rub
bed down. In addition to the Indoor
work there will be some field training
as soon as 'the weather Is mild enough.
When Captain Pace was "found by a
N'ebrasknn reporter Thursday he was

"Our manager, 'the boy wonder,' Is
planning a delightful trip in the cast
for the team. We hope to mnke dates

but a nice trip is certain.
"What are your plans for practice?"
"Wo have practically secured the
good grounds at Thirteenth and X
streets. The hours will be from .1 to 0.
An accurate record Is being, and will
be kept of the amount and nature of
the work done by every candidate.
In making up the team this will be u
factor. I wish to emphasize the fact
that we are going to have a team of
batters this year. It mukus hut little

muffs or fumbles a bnll, provided he

at least forty candidates when the sea

"I heard one of the players say that
you were too strict und exacting."
"I consider tnnt a good sign. The
objection doubtless refers to my re

weeks, harder, Uian to merely "rain

stale arms among tho hoys. 1 think
most of them understand that I am
working only for their good and they
will willingly obey. If there Is at any
time a grievance which I enn adjust
I have asked them to come to me with
It without hesitancy. Yes, Dr. Clark

The first Indoor all-around athletic
contest ever held at .the U. of X. will
occur on xhe evening of Tuesday, March
24. There will be at least a dozen en
tries, enough to make a good compo
Ultlon. The events will be the pole
vault, fence. va,ult. running high Jump,
spot 'throw ami potato nice. It Is safe
to say that never before has so much
ivgular athletic training been done In
the university as has been going on the
last few weeks in the gymnasium. It
will show up on Hold day. There will bo
an admission of 10 cents to 'the contest.
All the proceeds above $10 will be de
voted by the physical department to
the athletic association for tho puroliase
of spring apparatus. The association
has never hud a hammer or a sixteen
pound shut and these It must have. So
If you wish to help the uthlutic associa
tion and at the same time see a good
contest come with your best girl and
20 cen'ts. Prizes to the llrst and second
nil-round ' winners and to the winner
of each Individual event will be tablets
of oak, carved wtlth .the name and rec
ord of the winner. These will be lasting
and elegant souvenirs of 'the occasion.

ENGLISH OU I'll MEETS.
The English olub met with Mr. Mac
leotl at the home of Judge Tlhbetts
last Saturday evening. In view if his
soon departure Mr. Hates had been
requested to give readings from his
lKwms, which are soon to be Issued In
book form. In place of a regular pro
gram. Miss Perkins of the conserva
tory of music and Mr. Lehmer furnished
several musical numbers for tho even
ing, which proved a most pleasing In
novation one which It is Imped will
be continued In the future.
There Is a unlpue and original quality
In Mr. Hates' jwctry which pre
eminently Impresses one. It seems to
consist mainly In striking phrasing and
Unexpected transformation of nouns
.)to verbs. This peculiarity of expres.
slon. coupled with subject matter. In
tensely, though somewhat morbidly.
Imaginative, results In a quality of
work that, at the least, must attract
attention, nnd ought to achieve success

Miss Perkins Is one of the'best pian
ists In Lincoln. To some members of
the club, who had not before heard her,
the quick response of Instrument to
player was almost startling, being so
Mr. Lehmer's selections were a whist
ling solo, which, of course, was a "hit,"
and the singing of the "Jabberwach,"

of some who had heard of Its fame.

lOx-Congressumii Hrynn addressed the
Free Silver club of the university
Wednesday evening on the subject,
"The Retirement of the Greenbacks."
There was a largo number "of students
and townspeople present.
As a preface to hla speech ho showed
that an Irredeemable currency was
sound so lung us It was limited in quan
tity. He quoted from John Stewart
Mills to prove that It was sound eco
nomics. The question before tho American
people, he Haiti, was, 'Shall the green
backs be retired?" The people will not
lie called upon to decide whether they
will have a credit money or not. Hut
they must choose between a govern-
inent money and bank money. Both
kinds are credit money. A bank' note
Is a promise to pay In lawful ononey.
Greenbacks are lawful money and can
be used to redeem bank notes.
In the llrst place, he was opposed to a
bank of Issue. It was granting a privi
lege t't a class. Only a few men enn be
bankers. He then showed how the Is
sue of bank notes permitted the holders
of bonds to draw Interest on their In
vested capital twice. It was not the
business of the government to loan
money and it should not make an ex
ception in favor of anyone. A bank
currency leaves the control of Its vol
ume In the hands of the bankers. Bank
ers are. human nnd will manipulate it
for their own Interests. The people are
Interested In the currency and should
have a voice In Its regulation.
By some, he Bald, It Is argued that we
should retire the greenbacks because
we have too much money. Even If we
have too much money, we should n tire
the poorest money bank notes. But
we now have less money than at any
time In recent years. The government
has hoarded money In her vaults. It Is
an Inexorable law that prices are de
pendent upon the volume of currency.
Prices have fallen and continue to be
low. The late bond Issue did not have
the effect of mak'.ig money plentiful
and raising prices.
The bonds have been bought with gold
drawn from the treasury for that pur
K)se. Greenbacks and treasury notes
had been presented for redemption and
the gold had been used in the purchase
of bonds. This he did not think was
the best of llnanclerlng.
Tho greenbacks will continue to be
used as an endless chain until the sec
retary of the treasury exercises his law
ful prerogative to redeem them In gold
or silver. When the greenbacks are re
tired the endless chain will not be
broken. If silver and silver certificates
nre to be redeemable in gold it will
Mr. Hryan will appear before the
members of the club again before the
close f the college year.
The annual business meeting of tho
V. M. C. A. Saturday evening was well
attended. Reports were recoived from
the different commltteos, all showing
that great progress had boon made In
the work this your. Tho association
now has a membership of over two
hundred, u Kaln of nearly one hundred
since -the llrst of the year. Tho mission,
at tho corner of Ninth nnd V. streets,
bun proved successful, and it is the in
tention of the association to continue
the work there. The following otllcers
were elected for the noxt year: Presi
