If the weather continues to be as
warm as at. present Captain Gordon
expects to begin outdoor practice
soon. The. old men are iuinIoiih to get
out and get. in shape for tho early

for warm weather so they can show
the captain what, they can do.

tlc this year than ever before. Thus
far only one of the pitchers- has drop
ped out and all seem determined to
stay witli it and make the. tcaim Coach
Humes is now instructing tho twirl
ers on the "curve" ball and also giv
ing them prnctice in pitching to bat
ters. They arc all In excellent, con
dition and working hard every day.
It Is very hard as yet to pick out the
most promising ones iih they arc all
doing excellent, work. One. thing Is
sure, the pitching department, will be.
stronger than ever before.
As soon us the campus becomes dry

Manager Ryan expects to secure u

Six of last year's team will be hack
this year. They are Gordon, Kimllcr,
Hcedcr, Cowglll, Wells and Moore.
These, together with the new men
who are showing up, should make, a

superiority in the west In base ball as
well as football.
The question of a Held coach Will
probably be settled Saturday as It will
soon be time to begin outdoor work.

of for the place. They are both cseel
lent, men and are well known , Uni
versity and Lincoln basei ball circles,
Iowa lust year claimed she would

will be proven to be just as Idle a
dream as before.
