piny against Miss Kpurek's team of
the Commercial Ciiion club tomorrow
morning at 1(1 o'clock.
The girls have organird an indoor
baseball team but the objeel of tin.
organization is simply auiiiseinent and
not science. They played last week
and furnished oinuseniont for all so
fortunate as to be present.
All other "seasons" have their turn,
and now that the base ball season is
about to dawn upon as, let us see that
every one helps to make it another
grand success to add to the long list
of successes already down on the Uui.
calendar for this year.
There is no reason in the world why
the base bull season of '9S should not
be the most successful yet known in
our college athletics.
We have more material and better
material from which to build our
team this year before. Forty students,
all of whom have played base ball,
have given their names to Captain
Gordon, and a large number have re
ported for training in the cage. All
the cranks who are interested in col
lege ball like to see the old men
out working just as if they were try
ing for a place on the team. Of course
this is, in a measure, true, for in
many eases new men will supersede
old men on the team this year, but in
years past it was the custom for the
new men to train all winter and the
old men to start in when the season
opened out tl doors. This was a bad
way to have things, but nothing
could be done to remefly it.
Jt is worse than useless to ask
Coach Panics what he thinks of his
dt partincut and who will make pitch
ers, for the only answer ho gives, is
"Don't you ever fear about the pitch
ers; we will have men with south
paws and north paws and cant and
west paws and they will all be good."
It is quite laughable to see Fred when
a large boy enters ihe box to work
out. lie will grin all over his face
and mention something about the
poor catcher. It is the general belief
among the boys (lint Fred has several
iimls whom he is all puffed up over
and is in hopes of developing and
laving east with lilm to Milwaukee.
Will Choose United States President..
On Friday, February 12, al 7 o'clock
in the chapel will occur one of the
most interesting events of thin year.
It is no leiiM than a mock presidential
nominating convention partial put ad
in by the four debating clubs of the
university- -Maxwell, Deliun, l'alla

The scheme 1m to divide the delegates
to this convention among Ihu four
clubs thu. giving each club a repre.en

apportionment Ik divided up umour

custom in a real convention. There
has been an executive committee chos

who will open the deliberations of Die
There will be committees on rules
and platform and the other parapher
nalia of a nominating convention.
There will be the usual "wrap" over

to the final climax which consists oi
the nomination of a president and

The intlueuce thc, ivrt was
it well shown at the banket ball
game at Omaha last Friduv evening.
When the rnlverslty team went up
to that city, Ihe personnel of Ihe team
had nol yet been fully decided upon
It was a' toss-up between Voder and
I'lllsburyas to who should play-center,
llnth men were able to put up an on
eellent game and the decision was n
difficult one. Ulght here Is where tlu
gallery eaino In.
There were several young ladles In
Ihe gallery who were aoqiialnlanoos of
toiler. VVhen they saw there was
some doubt as to whether he should
play they said they would lake their
things and go right home If Yoder was
not allowed to play.
Then, Dr. Hastings, seeing that
Yoder was on his mettle, decided In
his lavor. The result of the game only
confirmed the. wisdom of his decis
ion, as Yoder played a star game and
the gallery was happy.
lleicafler those who wish to play
on the team will do well to be as gal
lant as Yoder and paok the gallery

According to the regular schedule the
I'ershings and the baseball men were
to play, but considering the condition
of his toain, Capt. llaln was unwilling
to play tonight, and it has not been
exactly decided as to who will play.
If the' I'ershings do not. the Athletic
team will doubtless play in their place.
Other at t met ions in the city kept
down the at tendance very materially
at the recent game on Wednesday ev
ening. As then' is no conflict of at
tractions this evening, the students
should make an effort to see this in
