'VARSITY TEAM TO PLAY COUNCIL BLUFFS.
For the first time in the history of the
University of Nebraska, or for that matter, in
the history of the west, there is to be a formal
match between girls' teams at basket ball. On
Friday March 4, Mrs. E. P. Floore of Council
Bluffs, their chaperon, will bring down an
experienced team of Iowa girls to contest for
supremacy with the 'Varsity first team. Lin
coln ladies who will act as patronesses on this
occasion arc Mrs. Chaucellor MacLean, Mrs.
W. J. Bryan, Mrs. G. M. Lamberlson, Mrs.
L. C. Richards, Mrs. W. B. Ogden, Mrs. A.
S. Raymond and Mrs. C. H. Gere. These
will be prominently seated in the west end of
the armory or in the first row of the balcony,
where they may best view the game. At the
close of the playing a luncheon will be served
to patronesses, players and officers in the
armory. Mrs. W. B. Ogden, assisted by
Misses Helen Harwood and Lena Deweese
have the preparation for these in hand. While
they are in Lincoln the Council Blufl's players
will be entertained at the homes of Mrs. F.
31. Hall, Mrs. J. II. MacMurtry, Mrs. A. M.
Lambertson, Mrs. L. C. Richards and Mrs.
A. S. Raymond.
The "Midget" teams which played on
Charter day will play at the opening of the
program and between halves, and will en
deavor to repeat their previous success. Just
at present there is some uncertainty as to the
rules to be followed by the Iowa girls and the
first team in the evening's play. The Council
Bluffs' girls are used to playing by the men's
rules, while the University girls have been
playing by the Smith collego rules, which do
not allow any knocking of the ball from the
hands. Probably some sort of a compromise
will bo effected, and the first half will be
played according to the men's rules, for the
sake of the loiva girlo, and the ccohJl accord
ing to the women's rules, for the sake of the
home team. This should add interest to the
match, for the two styles of playing can then
be contrasted. As to admission, the girls have
decided that football prices should be charged.
Owing to the style of the game,basket ball, the
authorities have to exercise care about the
kind of audience present, and have sent out
this announcement: Any lady may come, and
any gentleman who is accompanied by a lady.
About the case of "single gentlemen" they
have not yet decided. Tickets will probably
be one remady. Demands for reserved seats
have been received alreadj', and many from
out of town have sent word that they are
coming in for t'.ie match. "University colors
will be worn and a yell is being made for the
