During January the University team will play outside teams.
Tho Y. M. 0. A. teams of Omaha, Lincoln and perhaps Chi
cago will bo played.
Tho game of cricket that is to be played on tho campuB to
morrow will bo of interest to many, since tho game is so little
known hero. For two centuries cricket has been tho national
game of England, and it has been largely played by amateurs.
This strictly amateur element has kept for the game its popu
larity. Near tho center of the field, tho pitch, as it is called, is
selected, and tho wickets are placed twenty-two yards apart,
opposite and parallel to each other. Each wicket consists of
three round wooden sticks, called "stumps," which are driven
into the ground just near enough together to prevent the ball
from passing between them. Their height must not exceed
twenty-seven inches and the total width not more than eight
inches. On tho top of each wicket are placed two little sticks
of wood called "bails" and a slight movement of the winlcot
will cause them to fall to tho ground.
There is a batter at each wicket and they may be put out
in several ways. If a batter allows his bails to bo knocked off
tho wicket, he is out. The batting sido stays in until the
entire eleven men are out.
Tho bowler throws tho ball with a straight arm. If there is
any curve it is aftor tho ball bounds.
When tho battor has made a hit, ho may run to tho other
wicket while his comrade comes to his and they may thus keep ox
changing wickets, piling up scores as long as they think it safe.
The game tomorrow between tho faculty and students will bo
an interesting one, and the student body nhould turn out to see
it. The proceeds from tho contest will go to replenish the
the athletic treasury.
ONE PROFIT MAKER TO WEARER
Drake 6, Nebraska 5.
Once moro Nobraska has boon defeated. Tho stalwart lads
from Drake University provod too fast for Oapt. Molford an
his men. Nobraska scored on a goal from tho field, while
Drako pushed her rivals back by fiorco plunges and good end
runs, and scored a touch-down. Nobraska seemed to play
falow. Hor intorforonco formed slowly and was easily broken
np by tho Drako ends and backs. Frequently tho play was
broken up before it got uudor good headway. Tho principal
gains made by Nobraska wore made when Bonodict and Wil
liams loft their intorforonco and dodged their opponents.
Follmor played the star gamo for Nobraska. His tackling
was excellent. Many times ho broke up Drake's interference
and downed tho runner. Sovoral times ho, alone, saved No
raska's goal. Once, a. Drako man got ontiroly through the
Nebraska lino and startod down tho field at a rapid gait, Foll
mer gave chase and rolled him in tho dust on Nebraska's
twenty. five yard line,
Drako formed hor plays rapidly and scarcely over failed to
make good gains around tho ends. Tho victory over Nobras
ka highly olated tho Drako men.
