Tho Armstrong Clothing Co. has

Indoor baseball practice begins next

Tho third of the preliminary con
tests for tho charter day indoor ath
letic contest took plnco last Saturday
afternoon. The event was the thrco
standing broad jumps. Tho threo high
est were: Swnllow, 29 ft. 24 In.; Le
Mar, 27 ft. 7 In.; V. E. Andreson,
27 ft. B4 In. Tho fourth contest will
be the hop, stop and jump, and takes
place Saturday afternoon of this week.
Tuesday eenlng the basket ball
team picked from tho football boys
played the five o'clock champions. The
game was fierce and at times a little
rough. If the football boys were goal
throwers, they would have led their
opponents even a merrier time than
they did. Considering that thry have
had no team practice, they played a
good game. Fouls by their opponents
that were even startling were unnotic
ed by the football boys.
The second half tho five o'clocks
sUiru-d tho score to run up and tho
game resulted In a score of 15 toll In
five o'clock's favor.
The proceeds of the basketball
games will be used to purchase record
boards for the various athletic con
tests. However, if the basketball
games are not better patronized than
they have been, the number of record
boards purchased will bo rather small.
A fairly large crowd turned out to
fcce the game with the Y. M. C. A.

Tursd.iy evening between the five
oelork team and the team picked from
the foo ball men. Although basket
ball Is an intensely interesting game,
the majority of students In the Uni
versity have never yot seen i played.
There will be threo good games within
the n xt week, which should draw
good crowds. There will bo tho
game with the Y. M. C. A. of Omaha
on Niturday of this wcok and on .Mon

two games will be played between

At The Oliver.
At the Oliver theater on Thursday
evening, January 20ih, Murray &
Mack, the well and favorably known
Irish comedlnns will appear in this
city In their latest success, -Flnnl-gans
Courtship." a bright plausible
Irish comedy from the pen of Geo. H.
Emerick, author of their previous suc
cesses of the Finnlgan series of farco
comedies. Tills season these favorites
come with the most pretentious com
pany they have yet carried, both In
number and talent, and with scenic
Investiture rarely ever seen on tour
with a farce comedy. They have al
ready become recognized as leaders in
their specialties, and they also essay
to become leaders In their Rtyle of en
tertainment, and tho fact that they aro
so extensively imitated speaks volumes
not only in praise but In encourage
ment that they aro on the right track.
Finnlgan's Courtship" is In threo
arts, tho first the dining-room of Mr.
Hogan's boarding house, tho second
the beach at Coney Island, whore most
of the specialties are so aptly intro
duced; the third, tho hack yard of
Mrs. Hogan, where Hogan and Finnl
gan fight a duel, one of the funnlost
duel scenes over witnessed. Murray &
Mnck will Introduce some of such
specialties ia have made thorn famous,
- their burlesque on "Skirt Dancing,"
and tho "Glove Contest," their side
walk talk, and tho burlesque circus
act. '"P. T. Barnum & Adam Fourpaw
Out on a Lark," are enough in them
selves to satisfy an audience, and yet,
thero la much more.

In 1883 tho Greek lottor societies
first mado tholr appearance and tho
most bitter contest ever fought on
University territory was waged ovor
them In tho llternry societies, and as
time goes on It becomes very doubttul
that reconciliation of tho parties will
ovei take place.
In early day? for many years, Arbor
day was observed with ceremonies be
coming its Importance. One Arbor
day a few members of ono of the fra
ternities, wishing to anticipate tho ef
forts of tholr neighbors arose at mid
night and plnnted a lino elm tree on
I the campus; but when they camo onto
j the enmpus In tho morning thoro was
I no tree where they hnd planted It nor
! were their best efforts rowanled by
1 finding it. It chanced that I received
a telephone message that evening nsk
, I n i', if some students might bring some
' trees nnd plent in my yard. Of course
I was delighted and mado hasty propa
rtion to entertain whoovor might come,
but was rather surprised that they
should not mnko tholr appearance un
til bed time. However, the trcos wore
planted one lino olm and several oth
or vnrletlcs with becoming core
monlcs, and a social time was enjoyed
with tho dozen who came and then
they went away. A year or two afur
that a member of that fraternity told
mo tlit one of the young mon who
helped conceal tho tree had afterwards
joined them and gave thorn their first
knowledge of tho tree which was then
growing beautifully In my yard.
Tho huge boulder which lies on the
campus did not grow thero by any
means. It cost some stratagem and
not a little work on tho part of the
class that had It removed from mam
mlloH nway, to that spot; but the
campus Is rapidly filling up. As each
department has outgrown Its quarters
tin people of the state have made it
possible for It to keep on growing, by
giving It larger quarters and every
building new swarms with life as did
the ono In tho old times.
If 1 work until the 1st of Apt II, I
shall havu been in tho employ of tho
University for twenty years. I navtj
worked under four chancellors and
have been associated with every pro
fessor and teacher since the doors a'u-o
opened, excopt three Chancellor lion
ton, whom 1 have met several times;
Prof. Manley, who resigned on account
of poor health before I came, and Prof.
Dakc, who died previous to my com
ing. If I work until June. I shall have
seen twenty-one classes leave tho L'nl
vorsity halls and seventeen classes
enter, finish their coursu and leave.
Until about live or hix years ago 1
was personally acquainted with every
student; but tho number Is so great
now, 1 am not acquainted with the
great body of thorn. 1 have- witnessed
two serious revolutions in the facility,
and although every participant of ine
first has passed olf the stage; so far
as this community Is concerned, they
havo ninny friends here, and I could
glvo no details of It without being too
personal. My recollections are vry
clear of many things amusing and
many sad ones, all along the years;

for your kind attention. I will not
trespass longor upon yours.

Tho plan Is for the pitchers to work
out a very little this week and steadily
Incroaso until when the boys are
ready to practice batting thoy will be
hard enough to pitch to them. This
plan of developing pitchers by having
them pitch to batters has been adoptol
by most of the enstern eollogf. as It
not only affords the pitcher better
practice, but give the rest of tho team
Tho team, however, will do most of
Its training In the evening. All tho

Dr. NnnBcn's achievements havo boon

greater physical endurance than oth

Ho Is a professor In tho lnrgcs: uni

most remarkable thing In tho history
of the lecturo platform, no other

audiences where an admission has
been charged. Most of Dr. Nanson's
lectures have been given In cities of

people of Lincoln nnd the students of
