University. The Hesperian has too much
confidence in the University authorities to
believe that visitors are being deceived and
the foremost organizations of the institution
defamed with their sanction. But why the
authorities will permit one, who so hopelessly
fails in his duty to remain an employee of the
University, the Hkspkimax is not ready to
answer. The fact that this particular guide

In a couple of years we will be called upon
to entertain the Inter-State Ass'n and then
we must be prepared to extend our hospitality
as well as show our courtesy. We must not
be unprepared; we must not be found wanting
in interest or honest support. Hence we
should continue the revival of the present
year. It's a good thing: push it along and
push it lutnl. This is not a concern of one
faction or one clique: it is a matter of general
and paramount interest to all who owe alle
giance to the University of Nebraska. The
responsibility is not upon a few, it Is upon all.

The team promises to be one of the strongest
in the history of the University and the sea
son's forecast is the best. With fifty men
trying for places on the team and an abundant
enthusiasm in the work, there weed be little
fear as to the strength of the team when made
up. There is no lack, of material and the
quality is first-class. Under the coaching of
Mr. Barnes there is no doubt that efficient
pitchers will be developed during the winter
months. And with a field coach in the spring
we should be in shape to meet and conquer
any collegiate congregation in the wot. and
some of them in the east. To be sure we won
no games last year against the distinctively
eastern institutions; but the cxerience was
beneficial, and we hope and expect to fare
veil when we meet them this year.
Two trips are being planned and arranged
for by the management: one into Kansas the
fiist week in May. and a star one through
Iowa and Illinois. The formation of several
leagues in the east has caused some delay in
the schedule, but everything now indicates a
happy solution of the difficulties and the com
pletion of satisfactory arrangements. A coach
is now hired and at work; physical training
and conditioning are begun: a strong schedule
of games is rapidly being inade. What more
can we ask? The chances are good for bring
ing several strong collegiate teams to Lincoln
for games on the home grounds, and patronage
and support are sufficient, to warrant it. This
will snrelv be done.
