The boys have hardly yet figured out
bow they lost the Notre Dame game.
Gibson pitched a strong game tor t'e
home team and the boys had trouble In
finding him. Playing ball every day with
bard railroad travel Is telling upon tbe
boys' playing. They can't put up their
usually strong game.
The boys were entertained at Notre
Dame In true collegiate style. They went
down Sunday afternoon and the college
boys took charge of them and showed
them all they had. The visitors were not
even allowed to pay their own bus fares.

After the third Inning the Northwestern
game was a pretty one. After tho pitch
ers were substituted only ono hit was
made, and that was a misjudged fly. The
only other man to reach first was one hit
by a pitched ball. It was pitiful to see
how tho Northwcstcrners jumped onto
Hobby's delivery. Seven hits In one In
ning. Tom Crelgh fumbled once; that
made him mad and he did It again. It
seems that our boys really did, or at
least could, outplay Northwestern.

On last Thursday afternoon Nebraska
met tbe Chicago university team and was
defeated by the close score of 4 to 2.
This is the fourth consecutive defeat
which the boys have experienced on tbe
trip, but they have played good ball not
withstanding. The game was lost In the
first inning, when Nebraska made two
costly errors and three runs resulted.
Chicago's crack pitcher, Henry Clarke,
struck out ten men. but It will be seen
that the boys made seven hits off him,
while Gordun held Chicago down to five
hits. After the first Inning Nebraska.
braced up and put up a fine game, but
could not overcome Chicago's lead. The

JDftacon.KlndJer, U Ja, to save spent 'a
very pleasant evening with one of Joe
Sargcant's lady friends In Chicago. Never
theless, "Deke" has be'in playing his same
old steady game. '
Cnptnln Packard works like a veteran.
He has got his batting eye and seems at
homo In tho center garden.
Except In base-running, Nebraska has
done better work than any team she has
met on tho trip. With "Dutch" Wells out
of the game, Nebraska Is handicapped In
The boys fattened their batting averages
at Drake and Iowa City.
That base hits arc things that are only
parcelled out to the best of them Is being
realised by the player
The boys' study hours have been cut
down, as part of the diy Is now being de
voted to batting practice.
The team spent Sunday In Chicago, and
attended the Congregational church hi a
Klndler and Benedict were tick at Iowa
City, but the rest of the team has enjoyed
perfect health.
Reeder has been dubbed "Snapper" by
tho boys, and he well deserves the name by
the way in which he has been picking up
line hits off the fence.
Cowgill has practiced faithfully since
leaving home. He will be able to dispute
his right to a position on the team with
everybody next year.
Eddie Gordon, the ''boy wonder," Is un
doubtedly one of the strongest all-around
men on the team. Whether In the box or
in the field he plays tbe same steady game
which has always been characteristic of
Of cojrse it is unnecessary to say that
Robinson plays a good, game.
Ike Pace has proved to be an excellent
manager and he deserves a great deal of
credit for the success of the trip
Harry Benedict has won many friends
by his sharp, snappy fielding and fine bat
ting. Benny playing would credit a
league team.
Crelgh has been captaining the boys on
the trip and he Is a drclded success.
Intir-Collcgiate 3?ield Day.
The Intercollegiate field day contest on
the campus Inst Saturday proved to the
neighboring sister colleges that the uni
versity still holds her own. Wesleyan
and Doane both brought down a crowd to
witness the field sports. The bleachers
were well filled with spectators. Wes
leyan colors were In the majority, as they
expected to carry the day with their old
time runner and the colored jumper who
was able, tbey said, to jump as far and
long as you could get someone to meas
ure the distance.
Considerable time was taken up by the
Judges in deciding on a protest that was
raised against Cunningham of Wesleyan,
on the ground of his being a professional.
Two witnesses swore that they had seen
the gentleman run for money. Cunning
ham did not deny that money was spent
on him, but said it was given him to pay
expense. The Wesleyan combine was
completely spoiled by the Judges' first de
cision and threatened to take Its toys and
go home. Finally the Judges allowed
Cunningham to run under protest. The
protest was raised because of the fact
that those who run with a professional
when money Is charged as gate fee. even
when there Is no prise or purse up as a
stake, are classed as professionals.
The first event was tbe shot put, which
was won by Babr of Doane, at the same
distance that Turner threw it on local
field day, 21 feet 11 5i Inches.
The next event was tbe event of
the day, the liK)-yard dash. There
were six entries. Wesleyan was
confident of Cunningham winning.
As the shot was fired Andresen
and Collett xhowed their training and
were off at tbe same Instant, with the
rest together. All ran bard, with the uni
versity boys holding their own. Andre
sen finished first, fully two yards In the
lead, with Cunningham Just enough
ahead of Collett to get second place. The
time was 10 4-S, which was considered ex
cellent on an uphill track.
Tbe hammer throw was won by Carver
of Wesleyan at &)i7, which was a good
throw for a roan of Carver's size. His
shoulders and arms were well developed
for such work.
The running bigh Jump iwas .eciedly
In bfl bands of.W. Mi.- .Andresen andi
Klyo who, after 6 -fet 1 Inch had been
reached, were tho only contestants. An
dresen jumped M 5 feet 4i Inches nnd
Kyle 5 feet 1 liihes.
The 270-yard l'.ish was won by R. D.
Andrrsen. who broke tho university rec
ord of last year, making It In 23ti seconds
and finishing fully a rod nhcad of Cun
ningham. Pcpoon finished third.
Tho standing broad jump was won by
Moore of Wcsloyan at 9:2H. with Lee of
Doane second at 9:2U.
Tho SSO-yard run was won by Noyce of
Doane, who set a hard pace from tho
first and It was thought that he would
kill himself before tho finish, but he held
the same hard pace and won by several
rods In 2 minutes and 14 4-5 seconds.
Benedict easily won tho hop, step and
Jump over Moore nt 41 feet 9 Inches. He
Jumped several more times and made 40
feet 11 Inches.
Tho pole vault was easy for Benedict,
who vaulted 4 Inches higher than the
record and mado 9 feet and raised the
stick about a foot It was thought that
he could do considerably better, ns ho
never knocked the stick down at all and
Jumped just enough to win.
Tho 410-yard run was awarded to An
dresen in 54 4-5 seconds.
Running broad jump went to W. E. An
drescn at 19 feet S Inches, which is a record-breaker
of over two feet for the uni
versity record.
The hurdle race was won by Patten of
Doane in 20 3-5 seconds, with Andresen
The mile run was won by Noyce, who
made good time, running it in 5 minutes
and 7 seconds.
The points were scored as follows:
First place, 5; second place, 3: third place,

After an amount of work that has Jeop
ardized credits, tlje Junior annual Is an
actuality. Ever college of importance
looks upon Its annual as a mater of course,
but the present one must receive better
support or there is little hope of Issuing
another one for some time. There are
still unredeemed some 309 subscriptions.
The number waa issued on the strength of subscriptions and every one let slide
Is not only so much dead loss to the busi
ness managers, who have taken the entire
financial responsibility, but It Is so much
in the bole.
If all the annuals subrcril'ed for are paid
for the cost will be cleared up, otherwise
the business managers have got to stand
the difference. The chancellor has backed
up the undertaking from first to last, but
less than one-fifth of the faculty have
taken even one book. With only one week
of the semester left. It Is urged that every
body step tip and do the right thing.
Every fubscriber as he takes his book
from the Co-operative will be checked off
from the list and there ought to be none
to be carried over to next year or ad

The Campus tho Place of Holdinn the
Both In the Individual nnd Company Utill-
Mucli Unthuilntn N Manifested
This Afternoon.
The annual compctltlvo drill between
tho four companies of the cadot battalion
will occur on Saturday afternoon on tho
campus. The .fact that tho drill will bo
held right hero at home will doubtless
bring out a largo crowd to witness tho
drill. The cadets will also be saved tho
trouble of marching out to the fair
grounds In tho hot sun as they did last
For the last two or three weeks tho
boys havo been working hard In prep
aration for this event. The companies
have been drilling morning, noon and
night and some of them havo even been
stealing u little extra tlmo for drill dur
ing the chapel exercises.
They have all had "blow outs,' adopted
company yells and colors and company
feeling runs high.
The members of each company havo
figured out Just how their company Is
going to win. Company "A" adherents
point to the fact that they have practiced
harder than any other company and there
fore they are bound to win. Followers of
company "B" however do not admt this.
They claim that "A" cannot win on ac
count of the large size of the company.
They also pin their faith to the past
good record of company "B." As for
company "C" claimants, they base their
assertions on the excellent drill which
that company is putting up and also just
because they belong to company C The
members of company "D" are equally
Hs confident. Tbey won tbe cup. bast
y.ear andj.they-seA Jiognodrasoor-stiv,
they cannot turn tbe trick again.
But In spite of this talk made by the
cadfts in favor of their own company
no'je of the captains feel that they havo
the cup "cinched" and they are not re
laxing their efforts In tbe least.
The girls as well as the boys are taking
a. great Interest In the drill. Many of
them may be seen wearing some one of
the company colors which were given
tbcm by tbe cadets on the promise that
the girls would cheer for a certain com
pany at the competitive drill. Company
A has adopted colors of scarlet and light
blue. R members wear blue and yellow
bailees wheh are taken from a pair of
Lieutenant Pershing's drill trousers. Pink
and olive are the colors of company C,
and small sections of ex-Captain Sedg
wick's white ducks smeared in red
paint and adorned with tbe motto "P.
D. Q., 120." serve as colors for the mem
bers of company D.
There will be a competitive drill be
tween the company artillery attachments
as well as the infantry drill. While this
Is not considered bo Important as tbe
company drill, there Is a great deal of
interest manifested and the wearers of
the red stripe may be seen at practice
every evening.
Tbe individual drill will also take place
the same afternoon. Four men will be
selected from each company to! fcnter
the final "spelldown" and tbe winner will
be awarded the gold medal. In order to
make It more nearly possible that the
best man may win. Captain Gullfoyle has
decided that the contestant will not be
thrown out on a mere technicality. Those
entering the drill will be Judged not only
on their ability to execute tbe manual
of arms but also on tbelr soldierly bear
ing, their knowledge of tactics and gen
eral military proficiency. The winner of
the Individual artillery drill will ulso re
ceive a gold medal.

claring that this had been one of the most
enjoyable of their. anniversary banquets.
