Tlie first regular scheduled game was played
Saturday between the Board of Trade Team,
composed of the best players in Lincoln and
the University team. All but three of the
Uni. team were pitchers, all the others having
gone home to spend the spring vacation. Con
sidering the patched up condition of the team,
the champions of the University played good
ball. Swartz pitched good ball although ho
was a little wild. Moore behind the bat cov
ered lots of ground in fact stopping nearly
every pitched ball and some wild ones, but
he dropped more than he should. The infield
played together well and showed the effect of
good coaching and practice in their team
work. Moore and Rhea led the team in hit
ting securing three bits each.
The next game will be with Tecumseh,
Tuesday, April 39. Tecumseh is the best
amateur team in the southern part of the
state, and ought to give us a good game.
The team's hard luck has struck them al
ready this year. Liebmau is on crutches with
a wrenched knee; Cowgill is laid up with a
lame leg; "Wells, with a smashed finger.
"Splinter" Rhea is showing up well in the
field, and hitting like a leaguer, scoring three
hits in the last game.
Rhodes, the new first baseman is fielding
his position equal to famous ''Deacon." He"
is also hitting fairlj well.
Manager Ryons is putting up a new line of
bleachers along first base. This will accomo
date all the old "cranks" who want to be as
close to the game as possible.
John Cochran, law '95, has been secured
to coach the team for the remainder of the
season. While in the University he was con
sidered the best batter in the state. He will
make an excellent man to give the boys team
work and coach them in batting. With the
great quantity of now material, Cochran ought
to put together a team that will hold its own
with any college team in the west.
H. A. Lafler '01, who is now employed by
the Crete State Bank, was an enthusiast at
both the oratorical convention and contest
last Friday, Mr. Lailer expects to again take
up his University work in the near future.

The University is forging its way to the front. Its
faculty are winning recognition from every quarter
and its students receive marked consideration on all
occasions and iu all places. Not once nor twice
have we startled the literary and scientific world by
our acheivemeuta, but lately honor has fallen to us
in a now field. Mr. Oliver Thomus Reedy, familiar
ly known as Ol. who has recently joined the editorial
staff of tho Boston Fashion Plate, has an article in
tho Easter number of that periodical thatdoes credit
to our institution. He deals with that masculine
conundrum, feminine head gear, and describes thr
Easter bonnets of niueteen de otees of fashion witli
such precision that the initiated might find each hat
among a thousand.
When will that longed for day roll in
Proclaimed by bards and sages
The climax of our fondest dreams
The vision of the ages
When students act like gentlemen
Of some new-fangled school
And yield a moek servility
To sticks where men should rule.
When common sense is honeyed o'er
By the wand of some magician
And happy mortals cease to know,
Or doubt a politician.
When 1, in Homo secluded nook,
Like him 1 think so looney,
Shall read my French in azure eyes
And be a trifle spooney.
