LINCOLN, NEBRASKA, JANUARY 15, 1901.
Defeats Omaha Y, M. C. A. by a score
of 13 to 11 Banquet for the
Football Team Base
The university basket ball team
played the Omaha Y. M. C. A. men on
last Saturday evening In Omaha, Af
ter an exciting and close game, the
col lego men won by a score of 13 to 11.
A small crowd occupied the gallery
and a part of the reserved seats on
the floor. The room was small and
crowded making it difficult for- the
Lincoln men to throw goals with as
much accuracy as usual. In cheering,
the crowd was -very partial to the home
team showing little recognition of the
good plays made by the visitors.
The game was one of the most close
ly contested ever seen in Omaha. Dur
ing the first few minutes of play, the
association seemed to have a walk
away but by the end of the first half
the university men were able to hold
them even. A grand bur3t of speeu
during the last few minutes of the
second half won the victory.
Fouling was altogether too promi
nent on both sides, although the Omaha
team played much the rougher game.
Much of this was due to the 'size of
the floor which hardly permitted free
On the toss-up, Pillsbury secured
the -ball and-started' tho play.- Ih"'
short time, a foul was called on Pills
bury for running with tho ball.
Stemm threw a goal. Cortelyou soon
bad a chance or a foul and also threw
the goal tieing the score. Ringquest
threw two goals and Stemm another
foul making the score G to 1 In favor
of the Omaha men. .another goal
quickly followed making it 8 to 1.
From this on, the Lincoln men were in
the game at every moment. Pillsbury
and Koehler threw goals but Cortelyou
missed a goal on a foul. Tho remain
der of the half was spiritedly con
tested without advantage to either side,
the score being 8 to 5 at tho end in
favor of tho Y. M. (J. A .
Between the halves a couple of
junior Y. M. C. A. teams played. Also
a picture was taken of the two teams
with Pillsbury holding the ball high
above his head and all the others reach
ing for it.
During the first few minutes of the
second half, Pillsbury threw another
goal making the score 8 to 7. The uni
versity team was playing hard, fast
ball, in an attempt to forge ahead but
the fates seemed against them. Sev
eral attempts at goal failed by the nar
rowest margin. Pillsbury threw a
pretty goal but it did not count because
of a foul. Hinquest for the associa
tion threw a pretty goal from the
field. Cortelyou quickly followed with
a goal for the university and tho score
was 10 to 9 but In favor of tho Oma
hans. A goal from a foul made it 11
to 9. Koehler threw a pretty goal and
' the score was a tie with about a min
ute to play. Cortelyou missed a goal
on a foul. Alter sharp playing, Pills
bury threw a goal and tho score was
13 to 11 In favor of the collegians.
Time was ca.lcd soon after tho ball
was put in play without further scor
ing. The individual work of the men was
'excellent. While "Warren and Babson
did not throw any goals they watched
their men well and by guarding en
abled the others to throw goals. Team
work was acflcient but further practice
will supply this.
The loss of Gordon and Bliss from
tho baseball team will tend to cripple
tho early games.
Townsend promises well to develop
Into an effective pitcher having had
several years of experience at this po
sition. Candidates for tho base ball team
aro anxious to begin tho work of tho
tpriug season. Arrangements have
been made for schedulelng a game with
the University of Indiana to be played
on tho eastern trip.
At the last, meeting of the athletic
board held December 17, 1900, the
board desided to give the foot ball team
a banquet at the Lincoln hotel, Satur
day, January 19, 1901. The athletic
board, all foot ball men, Coach Booth
and Manager Tukey, are included. The
board wishes to show to the team its
appreciation for the hard work and
good results of last fall. In order to
defray the expenses of this banquet, a
subscription has been circulated among
the students asking them to subscribe
twenty-five cents. This is a smau
amount and the board desire that the
students respond promptly and will
ingly with their quarters.
Arrangements are now being made
tor the university mandolin club to
make a short trip in the near future.
Two towns are to be visited on the
first trip and these will be announced
later; one of them however will prob
ably bo Fremont. Under the leader
ship and management of Mr. Robert
Rhone tho orchestra has progressed
rapialy in numbers and strength and
in the rendition of the very best music.
About thirty members are now en
rolled in the orchestra and it is ex
pected that with the opening of the
second semester and tho prospect of
a longer trip in the spring the num
ber will be much increased.
Tho organization can hardly be
called a mandolin club, because most
of tho stringed Instruments in use to
day are represented.
It has been very difficult to obtain
either a flute or claironet player, but
it is hoped that some one will be found
soon who is able to carry that difficult
It has been requested by The man
agement to make it clear to the stu
dents of the university, that no fee
is required for membership, the only
things required, being a sufficient
