ka's el.ni.ee for winning the pennant this
year are the brightest sin- ever had. It
must be understood light hen, howeVer,

team has received a great deal of en
couragement lately, but there Is some
work to K done yet on the tlnanclal part.
A number of the students have not kept
their pledges, and a large amount of the
subscription money remains unpaid. Oth

WEDDING BELLS '&6.

will be glad to learn of the marriage of
Daniel Rich 'OS,. Tho happy bride Is
Miss Grace Hawk of Grand Island, a Inst
year's university student. Mr. Rich Is
at present employed In the electrical
lighting works of Kearney Nebr. The
nuptual rites were quietly solemnized at
Kearney. The ceremony was character
ized by its beauty and simplicity, and the
lack of all ostentation. Only u few of
the most Intimate rlends were present to
witness the happy event.

heavens; the level mesa streched away
