Tho base ball game between tho V. AI. 0.
A. and University teams was not as interest
ing us waa expected, as a score of 18 to 0 shows.
Thoro wore but few good plays made by
either sido, none that deserve mention, ox
copt tho double play of Stroman at sooond.
The game had not been advertized and henco
tho attendance was small. Our nine is now
in good condition, and ready to meet any of
tho college or local teams if dates can bo
Wo acknowledge with pleasure tho receipt
of Western Athletics, a paper published as
tho oflioial organ of the Denver Athletic
Club, and devoted entirely to western athlet
ics. College sports now occupy a prominent
place in every educational institution of note.
The only objection is that there is not enough
unanimity among colleges on this point.
Tho members of each institution aro enthusi
astic in regard to tho sports in their own
college, but if any now idoas are inaugu
rated or any new scheme worked, these ideas
or schemes aro hardly over heard of outside
of the institution in which they originate.
In Western Athletics, western studonts may
.find an outlet for their ideas; a place in
which to air their schemes. Wo wish this
paper success, and feel confident that, in
tilling a long felt want, it will also do a great
deal for the promotion of athletic interests
and enthusiasm in college sports.
It is but a few days until field day is hore.
Tho Spring thus far has not been very favor
ablo for out-door training, but it is hoped
that good records will be made. Tho stud
ent body should turn out as a unit. Tho
older students do not need much urging to
make thorn turn out, but the students who
have been hore but this year may not under
stand the object of our field-day; so perhaps a
word may not bo amiss. Last fall tho Ath
lotic association decided to withdraw from
tho State association and hold a field-day of
our own. This was done because wo were
compelled to compete with colleges whoso
mombers were far less in number than our
own,. and, on every fiold-jilay wo lmvo taken
two thirds of tho prizos. So on a wholo our
local fiold-day has boon fur moro interesting
than the State field-duy. Tho direct object
of the moot is to encourage collogo athletics,
and give to the students of the universities
and tho Lincoln people at largo an oxcollent
athletic entertainment. Somo of our men
have broken tho collogo rocords, and it is
expected and hoped that tho same thing will
happen again this your. Every student in
tho university should attond these sports;
not only will he bo bonifitod but ho will aid
the association and encourage collogo athlet
ics. On tho 2nd day of May the Athletic Asso
ciation mot in tho Palladian Hall, to discuss
the probability of organizing a boating-crow.
A committee was appointed to draw up rules
and regulations for tho government of such a
crew. Jus. A. Lunn was appointed as a
deleguto to confer with the Burlington Beach
company to seo what could bo done in tho
way of making tho scheme a succoss.
Last Thursday the Athletic Association
mot in tho Chapel to hoar tho report of the
committees, and discuss tho rules. .Tas. A.
Lunn roported that he had succeeded in
making an agreemont with this company for
two boats (shells) to bo placed on tho lako
under the oxclusivo control of the Athletic
Association. The rules drawn up by the
committee, after a fow amendments, wore
unanimously adoptod as a whole. V. C.
Cooley was elected manager for the ensuing
year, and Jas. A. Lunn and E. Haughton
wero elected temporary captains until tho
crow should got throughly organized. For
tho benefit of those who have not heard the
rules it has been thought best to print them
in this issue.
