I .Ji. v & : , - M - IfceWfc i' INDOOR CONTEST A SUCCESS Good Records Were Mnac in Every Event. 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 draw. 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 enapjrom thenar. 3, r s s B- a 3 9 K 5. 5 3 5 3 r 7 -3 ! 5 : i I P : 3 . : . : . a ; : b : : a : : Anderson 7-1095 5-4H 29-714 S if 48 101 91 47 117 407 72 76 S3 SI 154 j 4.t) Brothers S-10 S-S4 4-U 23-2 633 72 SI GS 21 117 I SSI Greon 7-4 7-R 4-7V1 29 2 683 36 SO S3 43 S3 577 Hanson S-10 6-2 4-5U 33-SH 4S7 0 20 45 63 44 172 Hill 6-7 9.6'S 4-S'4 29-6 629 18 101 46 41 US 324 Lowrte 5-10 6-6 4-14 22 S3! 0 17 30 29 67 143 Miarta S-6 4-11 33-t 520 I 63 6S 70 00 263 Molford 7-1 S-9H 3-S 33-1U - 1 . . 30 S3 S CI I 182 Pearso ' 5-10 7-SVi 4-7l 34-1 40S 24 . 57 53 64 1 202 Pcpoon ' 1-5U 29-5 45 46 91 Strahom 6-7 5-10i 454 25-1 C23 II IS 37 46 2S 113 ) 242 Warner 6-4 S-10 4-11 27-4 570 l 12 SI 6S 37 135 j 330 Waterman 7-7 9-2 411 32- J SSS 4J 91 6S 56 M 11 SS7 Wllsen 7-1 6-10 45 26-9 595 j 30 36 46 35 S ), 248 JUNIOUS WIN.

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.

Ho said In part: T "Tho weather bureau today is a direct development ot .he signal corps ot the army, nnd Is an outgrowth of the slgnnl service of the lato wan It represents ap plied meteorology, an lias ct is not fully developed as tho science ot meteorology has only been studied during .ho last twenty-live years. "The results and advantages of tho wonther bureau are often underestimated by those who know nth'ng about the sub ject. The weather bureau has 150 s.atlons employing 300 men, and receives and an nual appropriation of, about $!'00,000. It saves every year, property many times 1 more valuable than the cost ot the bureau Itself. "Forecasting severe storms Is the real and principal purpose ot tho bureau. Of nil the forecasts made, over eighty-two percent may lw considered as certain of fulf Ument. "The mar.ne warnings are the most im portant Issued 'byfetbe weather bureau. These are forecasts of severe storms on the-eshore, orVthe"great lakes, and are Verj useful t In showing the sea captain 'whether 'it Is'safo to put to sea. ' "The value ot these forecasts Is easily hown,4if. jJteif4ri2tHltyiousands oLsea captalns consider the warnings of Europe Important enough to Justify their staying .n port, a day or two longer than they o.hcrwlso would. "The cold wave signal Is next In Impor tance to the storm warnings. Xo cold ot unusual intensity now .'comes unhoraldod and thousands of dollars worth of proper ty have been saved by these forecasts. The cold wave signal affects all classes of people and when It Is seen, preparations for cold weather are made by the farmer, cattle ralsor, frui. grower, florist and oth ers. "In connection with the weather bureau are tho weekly crop bulletins. They havo been established for the purpose of get ting reports of the crop conditions and thus frustrating .he designs of specula tors who vvilfully misrepresent the con dition of the crops in order to affect tho maiket. "Much of tho work of tho weather bur eau Is done wholly without nay. It la were not for this, on accouiu of thu small appropriation for this purpose, tho bur eau could not covor the wide Held which It now does." 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. , BASE BALL BOUNCES.

Professor Lyon has Just announced sev eral Impor.ant changes In tho studies of his departmonu Heretofore tho agricul tural group has consisted of twenty-six and one fifth courses, of which sixteen nnd three tilths were required work. It con tained a large number of different scien- titlc subjects, which wore thought .0 bo too general for this course. It Is now de signed to have a course thnt will prepare students for taking tho civ.l service oxam- .laatlona.inthg. department ot agrlfiul.ure. at Washington, and also to lit them for experiment stnt'on work In the different states. In order to bring this abou , the 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 ialty In which tho student Is luterestod. For instance. If any student Is going to take an exnm. nation for work in one of the divisions of the depar mont of ngr.cul- ture. he must have perfec.td himself along one particular line of work. la or der thr.t he shall have time to do this dur ing his college course, it Is doslred that he take as much time as possible In .hat particular branch. The department of agrlculturo at Wash ington includes the divisions of agricul ture soils, agrostology, botany, chem'stry, animal Industry, dairying, entomology, horticulture and forestry. Tho appoint ment to positions in these divisions are all made on tho basis of tho Illness of the applicant for the position and no; by pol itical influence. xnm.n.tions are re quired of all applicants who naturally come from the agricultural colleges of the different states. At prehen. tho university of Nebraska Is well represented in tho agricultural de lmrtment at Washington. Thoro are cou nseled with this department tho follow .ng graduates of the, university; H. J. Weber. A. F. Woods. J. G. Smith. T. A. Williams and P. A. Bydlerg. Mr. It. A. Emerson who graduates .his year will al- so enter upon his duties In the office of th- experiment station at Washington. at the clow of th.s semester. THE GLEE CLUB.

Tho Omaha con cert will also be given with the Sutorlous Mandolin orchestra at Boyd's theatre, on tho evening following the Lincoln concert, Wednesday, Mny 12. A large number of Omaha boys are contemplating going up with tho club to attend the concert. BASE BALI. MINSTREL SHOW To bo Given Tomorrow Night nt the Chapel.

Saturday afternoon, March 20, an inter esting gymnasium exhibition was given In the armory for the benefit of tho mem bers of the woman's clubs of the city. About 150 ladles were present. Much cred it for tho oxcellont program is due Miss Barr who has so rapidly raised the stand ard of gymnasium work in the university, intruducing the newts: thoughts and methods. Miss Spurck's paper on "Physical Edu cation for Children" was much appreciat ed ns showing careful study and a thor ough understanding of the subject. Fol lowing this, the three o'clock class of about fifty girls did work In free hand movement and bar bells. At three-thirty tn advanced class took the floor and gave a drill in fencing positions, using both 1 right and left bunds. Tho feature of greatest Interest oame Inst, the basket ball game.
