Manager Kynns has succeeded In ar
ranging a very good schedule of giiiues
for this spring. In addition to the two
trips, he lias obtained contracts for
ten games with the leading schools of
the west, to be played on the home
grounds. When it is remembered that
he entered upon his duties at a very
late date and under er.v unfnorable
circumstances, his efforts are the more
to be commended. Xot only has he
fulfilled the duties of manager, but
he has also taken upon himself work
which no manager should be compelled
to do, in order to sae expense to the
team. All things considered. Mr. Ity
ons has mnde a most excellent record
so far this season.
The election of captain for next
j ear's bal Iteam is as yet a long way
off. There are not more than three or
four men who should be so certain of
positions on the tcun that they can
discuss how they will vote. Discussion
of the best man for captain next year
ought rightfully to be put off till the
season is over and the merits of the
players fully shown That 1 the only
possible waj of obtaining the best
man for the place. And yet we have
it on verj good authority that, the
fight for enpVain rriExryenrTtcam Is
already on. We also hae it. on good
authority that a certain candidate en
deavored to use the election of the
junior annual lwiard as a means to fur
ther his own interests in the baseball
election this spring. We also have it
direct from the lips of one of the play
ers that already there is a combination
to beat this same man out.
How is it to be expected that base
ball can be run as it should be when
polities and wire pulling entr so
largely into baseball affairs?
f the Hesperian is so extremely
anxious to know why the 'Itag" feels
called upon to say anything about ora
tory or debates, as is inferred from
last week's issue of the sheet across
the way, wc can easily satisfy its curi
osity. The University public desires
to hear about such things
and as the Nebraskan is the
only paper in this nelghlxirhood
which makes any pretence to furnish
news to its readers, it consequently
aims to publish a complete report of
all things which pertain to oratorical
or debating matters. Of course, if the
Hesperian made any pretension of be
ing a newspaper or of puunshing the
current happenings in the university,
it would not be necessary foi the Ne
hrnskan to so fully cover the field. Hut
when the "Hag" considers that it has
it, own readers to look after and in
addition those few who wore entrap
ped into taking the Hesperian, it. real
izes the double duty it is called upon
to perform and consequently takes es
pecial pains to furnish a complete and
full report of all things Interesting to
the University public, if the Hesperian
desires further information on any
subject the "Hag" will eheenully fur
One of the lessons which doubtless
hns been learned from the. game with
the Omaha team is that an cuiclcut
coach Ik a cry necessary adjunct to a
college team. The batting, base run
ning, fielding and team pln. all dem
onstrated this fact.
There is no denying that, there is
some very good material working for
the team this year, but without proper
coaching there is no doubt that the
team will fall below litHt year's stand
ard, it is to be hoped that Mr. Coch
ran will straighten out the team nnd
work them up in the things they are
weak. The only way to run a team,
either in football or baseball, Is to give
the rnnt'h the fullest possible swn

without dictation from any one mali
ngers or captains and us u result the
university lias never been as well rep
resented as It has been since Mr. Hnb
inson came to Nebraska.
A coach Is much less liable to be prej
udiced for or against tne men and is
much more capable of picking out the
best men for the positions. Mr. Coch
ran has a good field to work in and we
hope and believe that he will bring out
the best team that it is possible to ob
tain to represent the University.
Personal attaeks on the pari of stu
dent publications are so very rare In
the University that when they do ap
pear they call for some comment.
Certainly this Is the ease with a most
uncalled for attack on (Jcorgo E. Kin
dler. which nnncared In the Scarlet
and ("renin publication issued by the
base ball people in the interest of the
Merely because he refuses to play
ball this spring they devote a column
to his abuse as a player and a gentle
man. Mr. Kindler certainly has a
right to refuse to play ball if he so de
sires mid he also has a right to refuse
to divulge his reasons. Hut. we know
that those reasons arc very likely U be
divulged soon and when they nre.there.
is likely to be considerable continent
on those same reasons on the part
of the University public.
Any one who pretends to keep in
touch with base ball affairs and with
the sentiment of the school knows
that Deacon Kindler has the respect
and confidence of by far the larger
part of the student body and that, he
is sympathized with, in his refusal to
play base ball this spring.
Few who know him and his reasons
for not playing blame him for his ac
tions and still fewer would play them
selves if placed in his position.
Mr. Kindler has in no way injured
the team or its players this year and
this attack will redound to the injury
of those who so far forgot themselves
ns to publish it.
Eevv who know the inside of base
ball matters have any doubt that Oeo.
K. Kindler is amply able to defend
himself njon such attacks.

31 r. ICititor:' The score sheet of the
Nebraska-Wahoo ball game of last
Thursday presented a rather peculiar
feature. Two columns appear side by
side, the one a eulogy upon ex-Manager
Pace, the other a slander upon
nivseii. Why Manager IJyons should
see lit to parade the name of Pace the
benefa.-tor, before the eyes of the
Univerisity base ball fans, is difticult
to understand. Why he should take
occasion to deliberately and malicious
ly misrepresent myself in such a slan
derous n is beyond reason to ex
plain. I am charged with having no college
spirit; with disdaining to play in such
slow company; with lK'ing a chronic
kicker; with leading new players af
ter strange gods by telling fables for
facts; with having received favors
from the management, ete, etc. Those
who know me will understand without
explanation that the above, charges
are absolutely false. Those who do not
know me need but to think of the
motive of the management for the
cause of attack.
It is but. the manifestation of the
same spirit which characterized me as
a "rattlehead" on the diamond and an
"incompetent" at the bat; the same
spirit which sought to deprive nie of
my college athletic birthright last fall
in the athletic board trial; and which
characterized me as representing a
dangerous faction in the University
every time there was a possibility of
my being elected to a position In
athletic affairs. Kor the manager to
attempt the present unjust and un
called for assault In such a low and
cowardly manner because 1 have not
yet reported for practice shows him
up to the student body in his tmc
light. Let it bu understood by Man
ager Ityons, Hace, et al., that as soon
as 1 shull have completed preparation
for the Nebraska-Missouri debate 1
shall bu the same base ball enthusiast
years. Hut for all that 1 do not hesi
tate to state at this stage of action
that the present base ball situation
presents a broad Held of corruption.
Too much of dirty, petty rotten poli
tics and not enough of the genuine ar
ticle of babe ball seems to be a just
criticism. Yours truly,
