the dual track meet between Kansas

which Talbot will win in tho inter

given up almost exclusively to the Y.
Al. C. A. and the record of its year's
-work. It will be seen Unit the growth
of this organization during the year
lias been most phenomiiml, not alone
when the increase in numbers is con
sidered but also the incroaw of interest
in the association and the vast sunouut
of actual Christian work done. The

told of a glorious victory. U low-over,
victory is not to Ihj expected always
nnd when sueh n creditable showing
is made as that of last Wednesday, we
have cery reason to feel proud of the
team. Mclford's work in it he box wai
especially deserving of mentiloii, as
was also' that of (Jimlon at third, Mi'
Diariuid at short and Rhodes at llrst.
Tho team needs above everything eUe
inereaw in its batitlng menige.
There is no organixrtlon In the uni
versity that is more ineritoiis of praine
than the Y. M. C. A. Starting sever-il
years ago, it has deeloHtl from a
very few nienibi'm uiutll now It em

great equalizing medium of the iiinll

is 'taken in school dlsMUitions, but im
tar as poswlble attempts to keip down
tall trouble. Fraternity and society
men meet hens In a feeling of harmony
nnd good will. WV can only wilt and
work for the Mine lo come when all
students will accept this mode of in
tercourse. When this s .igv ih reach
ed we may hope for successful athlet
ics, successful oratory and and hiic-cejs-ful
school movements. We can
then put aside such cognomens uh
"frnt," and "barb" and unite under
itiho general designation of "sitiulcnts
of Nebraska," and can work not with
partisan but iwn-aptlJan ideaw for
the best lmtierests of the university.
At the Oliver theater Friday night
of this week occurs tihe annual contest
of the interstate oratorical associa
tion1. In this eonticst ten states of the
middle west atro represented by mon
who have proven tllielr title to the
honor by winning n state contest each.
It is only once in ton years that this
animal coivtcst comes to Nebraska so
dt is only once in ten years that) Ne
braskans interested in college oratory
can luavo such an opportunity as they
have fids yeur. University of Nebras
ka students, especially, should turn
out In mass to welcome- the represent
atives of lhe.se ten states nnd to cheer
to victory Nebraska's roprexeiitatlvo,
A. It. Talbot, who is at ...o wiiuo time
a University of Nebraska representa
tive. Let everyone go wilm possibly
can to el .er for the scarlet and cream
and to hear the beat represent at I ,m
of college oratory.
iMuch sad news has come to the uni
versity from time to 'time; during the
year as the result of the Spanish war
and the insurrection (so-called), of the
Filipinos. Yet no one wis prepared
for the news,, which onmu last hun
day. However, that Colonel Stoltscn
burg should be killed while leading a
charge at the head of his regiment
va consistent with the known char
acter and bravery of the num. The
position which the regiment has taken
in the very front of the tiring Hue, and
the dash sind success with which It lias
met every demand made upon il tstt
lies, most' eloquently, to the measure
of elllcliMicy which It had attained un
der the command of Colonel St ot son
burg. The university had all along
felt complete continence In tlic colonel
of the First regiment, among whose
members and ameers arc so many
university men, and the Xebraskan
several times took occasion to con
demn the e panto methods of the leg
islature and of a portion or the pros.
The preparation of the regiment. b
careful discipline, for just eiich events
as came furnishes its uwiijuxtlttoatlou.
The bravery of Colmivl SloKeuiburg
and tlhe iiiste'em, even love, felt for him
by the regiment is attested by these
Maine, evenits. The university mourns,
with the state and nation, for one of
the bravest and most capable oillcers
of the army.
TENNIS AFFAI.. .
Dclinlte arrangements have at last
been made for the formation of an in
tercollegiate tennis Lssociation. This
is a movement along the right lines,
and tlltows the many-sided character
of the university. In eastern eobego,
like Harvard and Cornell, great inter
est is maintained 'by similar associa
tions, and there Is no reason why our
university, vvitli proper encourage
ment by the students, should not
make tennis one of the liiost interest
ing athletic sports of the university.
The University of Nebraska in the
past has developed the very best of
tennis material, and it is with the
greatest of pride that we point to Miss
Pound's record at Chicago last sum
mer. The first meet will be held at 'this
university in a few weeks, with Doane
and Hoilevuo colleges. The univer.-ity
courts ar being put in excellent condi
tion and in order to encourage the
players, they will be open to all stu
dents for tilie rest of the year, for
Moth Doane and ltellcvue have been
practicing hard for the coming meet,
and will be here vvitli a .etcrniined ef
fort to win. If the uuivcr-ity in
tmwls o niiike a creditable showinir.
a large number of the students must
join the iiNsocintloii. Heretofore an
entrance fee o one dollar has been
charged, but he price lias been Tow
ered to twenty-live cents in order tint
all students niay enjoy ilie privilege of
this, one of the most pleasing and
bonetlelnl of athletic sports. Let any
one who knows nnj thing aoout the
game join the association and help the
inaiiageinent to make tennis a success.
