INDOOR CONTEST A SUCCESS
Good Records Were Mnac in Every
WERE HIGHER THAN LAST YEAR
Tho Boxing Match Kmlfl In a Ddr.iw
Tim High Jump Record of Last
Yuor Is UnUcJ Two Inohos
Somo Other Records.
Tho second annual Indoor contest proved
a succss, especially on the part ot tho con
tcstants, Tho three mou that took par'
in Inst year's contest made tho sains over
their records of last your, and still hold
the championship on their events.
Tho number of men this year, was two
grca.or than Inst year.
While making altowanco for tho higher
scale ot marking, tho records wero de
cidedly a strong gain over those of last
year. The marking was cons.derably high
er on tho rope Jump than any other event.
As it came last and the unfortunate con-
tsUnts were compelled to lump with only
the gas light from tho gnllory, the ovont
was ra'her iinnlfotry Whll ih
crowd was not very large, tho Interest was
not lacking from those present-
Tho program opened by u three round
boxing match by two pup'.ls of Jack Host,
E. V. Curtain and A, Glaze. Just before
the announcement of .he opening, a twenty-four
foot r.ng was marked oft on the
floor and tho crowd knew what It niAtnU
Curtain and Glaze took scats In chairs
in the diagonal corners of t'.ie ring and
pulled on the heavily padded gloves, Wet
zel acted as referee and called the men to
shake hands. Bo.h men Jumped up and
lost no t.mi) In starting.
First round Both made pusses with no
hard blows. Glaze continued to follow Cur
tain around tho ring. While they were ap
parently afraid to go at It, they kept a
lively... moy!;-har,K.and. fncth. Glaxo lead
and landeu several blows on .he side of
Curtain's head, and In return reco.vcd
heavy body blows.
Second round This round was mostly
running around chasing and getting away
from each other as if they .mended to
fight twenty or thirty rounds. Curtain
changed his tactics and gave head blows.
Glaze continued to follow Cur.nin up with
both head and body blows.
Third round Curtain opened and was
followed by Glaze giving h.m a trunk
blow. As Glaze made a side hit. Curtain
gave him a pretty straight blow on tho
chin. Glaze did not lose any time in com
ing back and Curtain succeeded in giv
ing Glase three successive face blows.
Curtain's face showed that he had re
ceived several face blows, as .he time was
called the referee announced the match a
The fifteen men divided Inio four classe
and a person was kept b -v trying to
watch all of them.
The fence vault of last year was leplac-
ed by the long bar snap and was won by
Andreason at D feet 8 inches, with a close
second at S ; ( inches by Hill. Shot
throw of 35 feet C inches which was a rec
ord breaker, was thrown by Martz.
Tho pole vault was raised two inches
hlghi'i than last year by Benedict, and
Brothers, who made 8 feet 10 Inches.
The high Jump which Is coming up near
the good records was broken In good shape
for .wo Inches bettor han last year by
Andreason who broke his own record of
last yonr whloh was at that time two
inches higher than any other Jump.
The rope Jump was taken by Benedict
who boo rod on this one event 161 poln.s,
which gave him a decided lead of over
thirty-two points, over the other contes
tants. The three events that were tho
same ns last year were broken. Tho even
ing training class will continue its work
to the end of the year as an Intercolleg
iate field meet Is being planned for be
tween Doane, Wesleyand and the univer
sity. After such records as were made,
the university is now able to go out side
the campus with her athletes. By a lit
tle more Uainlng l-'jt thought that the
pole vault can bo easily raised to nine feet
or over. The high Jump to five feet six
Inches, and practice work on shot putting
can bring up the record.
There are many other men who by prac
tice can be made to do excellent work.
Hill, who has made his first attempt at
this sort of work can by training do much
better. His muscles stand oul full and
round, and It was a fine sight to see him

The Junior and senior classes of tho law
school played a lively four innings of base
ball on the campus Saturday. The Jun
lors managed to pile up two more scores
than the seniors. The seniors had several
old timers, but they, like tho rest of their
team, were unnble to find the ball. Sing
house, who pitched for tho Juniors, played
the game for them also, striking out Hay
ward and Crelgh. Thompson made a four
bagger and brought In two runs for thu
seniors In .he third Inning. The seniors
did not put up a good game and the play
ers who are considered the best, played
the worst. Killen who played loft Hold
was conspicuous with a pair of tight short
pants of light blue, and a cutaway coat.

DOANE vs. THE U. of N.
On Tuesday, April 13, Doane college will
try her luck with our base ball toam. Th s
Is our opening game, and our boys prom
ise to show what a swift game they will
put up this season.
Tho game will be p'yod on the campus,
and will bo called at 3 o'clock sharp. The
grounds will be a ll.tlc cramped, but the
management thought It best 10 play the
games on a ground hand)" for tlio Audents
so that thoy will not lose any time un
necessarily. No attempt will bo made to
put up a fence to shut out the view, but
the student, It Is presumed, will co-oier-
ate with tho team in making the season h i
grand success. Those not wishing to pay
a quarter to see the gamo will have
enough self respect not to stand outside,
or crowd the windows, and sponge off tho
Jeam. A hint to the wise is sufficient.
For this opening game the lad'es will
be admitted free, and It Is hoped thoy will
appreciate the offer by turning out In a
body. It Is regretted that a grand stand
cannot be placed at their disposal, but
one will be ercc.ed as soon as the treas
ury warrants. ,

three tilths were required work. It con
tained a large number of different scien-

too general for this course. It Is now de
signed to have a course thnt will prepare

agriculture group has been arranged with
but very little required work, which
amounts to ten and one llf.h courses. This
leaves a great deal of t.me for any spec
