Tho Kansas trip has been made. The games
have been lost and won more lost than one.
But Nebraska has again shown that she is
one- of tho formosl colleges in athletics in tho
west. Out of five games, wo won one and
tied one and lost two others by ono score.
"Wo defeated tho state agricultural college by
tho decisive score of 22 to (I, played St. Marys
ollego 7 to 8 in the mud and rain. We would
have won that had wo had a fair umpire. Em
poria defeated us by a score of 10 to 2, but
they had a team of professionals picked from
all over the state. The best and most excit
ing and also tho one in whom all Nebraskans
wore most inteiested in, tho game with Kan
sas University, resulted in a tio. For thirteen
innings tho two teams fought fiorcoly for tho
winning score. But both struggled in vain.
At tho end of tho thirteenth, Capt. Curry of
Kansas asked to havo the game called on ac
count of darkness. Manager Ilyons finally
consented to stop the game, on consideration
that wo have a return game with tho Jay
hawkers hero. Tho work of Bliss in this
gamo was on tho phenominal order, securing
two homo runs and a single, scoring live of
Nebraska's nine runs. Molford pitched an
oxcollent game after tho third inning improv
ing every inning. Tho next gamo was with
tho Missouri Tigers. This gamo was post
poned two days of account of rain causing
tho. cancelling of two other dates and finally
having to play in tho mud.

The gamo on Tuesday afternoon was a
snappy, closely contested ono as tho score in
dicates. Although dovoid of special features
it was interesting throughout, tho result being
in doubt until tho last man was out in tho
last half of tho ninth. Kindlor, Iteedor and
Bliss did tho best work for Nebraska. Barnes
and Robinson played well for tho visitors.
Ton orrors wore recorded against Nobraska,
thirteen against "Washburn.

Tho Missouri game Wednesday afternoon
did not prove to bo the close oxciting contest
which every ono expected. Tho fact that
Missouri defeated our team in two close games
at Columbia last week led all to boliovo that
tho contest would b an exceedingly oloso ono.
Consequently a good sized crowd was present
despite tho wind and dust.
Missouri lost tho gamo in tho first two inn
ings. Tho Missouri pitcher's experience had
boon confined to tho alfalfa fiold and Nebraska
piled up twelve scores before the third man
was out, in tho second inning. In the latter
part of tho second inning Blako took Cooper's
place in tho box and the Tigors braced up,
holding tho Nebraskans down to two scores
during tho remaining seven innings. How
ever, both sides played a more or less listless,
lifeless gamo throughout, Msssouri realizing
that tho gamo was lost; Nobraska that it was
However, tho playing as a whole was not
bad, considering tho wind and dirt. But six
errors were recorded against Nebraska and
five against Missouri. Tho gamo would havo
been a fairly exciting ono had not Nebraska
piled up tho largo number of runs in tho first
For Nobraska, Molford pitched; Mooro

Hill, nawkins, Dewey and Mossman covered
tho infiold; Broady, Booker and Atchison, the
Tho PallacUtrrr girls' program occurs Friday
evening. Tho nature of tho program is sup
posed to be a secret, but it is rumored that a
certain Pall boy secured tho full confidence
(together with tho secret) of a certain Pall
girl, and that tho "confidence" and tho "se
cret" became separated by mistako, tho secret
escaping. The Pall boy still has tho confi
dence in his possession.
Tho Lincoln Evening News criticizes Prof.
Hodgman for views expressed in his chapel
reading last week Friday. In tho printing
of Mr. Hodgnmn's roply tho News has taken
the liberty to insert two negatives in tho next
to tho last paragraph. As it reads in tho
News it makes Prof. Hodgman deny what all
those who wore present at the chapel reading
know ho did say
