PROP. SWEZEY'S LECTURE.
Tho honorary society of Sigma Xi
held Its third open meeting of the
year in the old chapel last Thursday
evening. A large crowd turned out to
hear Professor Swezey's lecture on the
"Solar Eclipse of 1900." Tho lecture
was illustrated wl.h stereoptlcon
views, and was listened to with close
attention by tho audience.
Professor Swezey first explained the
nature and causes of tho eclipses of
both sun and moon. He said: "An
eclipse of the sun is caused by the
moon's passing between the earth and
that body, while the moon Is eclipsed
by passing into tho earth's shadow.
The eclipse of the moon is consequent
ly visible to a whole hemisphere,
while that of the sun is visible only
to a few people who happen to be in
the pa:h of tho shadow which is never
over eighty-five miles in diameter.
Eclipses are not very frequent in oc
currence, owing to tho Inclination of
the moon's orbit, consequently when
they do occur they are objects of great
Interest and scientific study. The
black shadows of the total eclipse is
Rhodes' Men Start the Season Well
Nebraska Wins from Missouri in
Two Games Excellent Play
ing on Both Sides.
By scores of 16 to 1 and 13 to 9, Ne
braska won tho fir3t two intercollegi
ate baseball games from the Missouri
team Friday and Saturday.
The game Friday was a walk-away
for Captain Rhodes' men. Tho Mis
souri team was tired from tho all
nigh:'s journey of the night before
and were not in condition to put up a
good game. The Nebraska men, on
tho other .hand, were In prime condi
tion and played at their best through
out the game. Townsend was in the
box for Nebraska.
The game started with Missouri a:
tho bat. Coo struck a beautiful fly to
center field, and Do Putron made a
star play by making a difficult catch
after a long sprint for the ball. Mc
Caslin and Broadhead were both put
out on first and Nebraska camo in.
Do Putron was the first man at the
bat and struck to short, who got tho
ball to first in time to catch him.
Reeder got to first on a grounder to

surrounded by a lighter shadow, the
ponumbra, caused by a partial cut
ting off of the sun's light."
A series of views showed tho shadow
of the moon on llie surface of tho
earth and its path across tho globe.
"Tho path of the eclipse of 83 be
gan and ended in tho Pacific ocean,
and one small coral reef was the only
spot of land In its path. In spite of
the difficulties of reaching tho Island,
two pariles of astronomers made the
trip, wading through tho water for
half a mile, carrying their Instruments
on their backs in order to reach the
Professor Swezey went to observe
the eclipse as a phenomenon rather
than do any scientific work. Ho joined
he Lick observatory party at Thomas
ton, Georgia. The party had been on
tho ground for two months previous
to the eclipse, making preparations
for tho great event. Tho instruments
had to be mounted and carefully ad
justed and many calculations had to
be made before tho observations could
be taken. Tho whole party was care
fully drilled in their work every day,
in order hat (hero should bo no con
fusion when tho time came to take and
record the observations. A long tele
scope was used so as to obtain the
greatest magnifying power, and mo
work was all photographic. One ob
server mado use of tho phonograph In
order to obtain an accurate descrip-
short-stop, and stole second and third.
Raymond and Townsend got bases on
balls. Tho bases were now full and a
strike to right field by Gains let all
three men in. This was tho extent of
the scoring In the first Inning.
Two Missouri men went down be
fore Townsend's curves, and the third
was put out on first. Do Putron and
Reeder ran Nebraska's score up two
points, and Do Putron, running for
Townsend, caisc in on a two bagger
by Gaines. In tho third neither side
scored, and Missouri went down be
fore TownBend's curves in the fourth.
Nebraska was more fortunate and Do
Putron, running for Townsend, scored
one on a pussed ball. Reeder and Ray
mond camo In soon after. Do Putron
running for Townsend, steals second
and third on a muffed ball by second
base, and Gaines lots him In on a
muff by short-stop. Hero Rhodes
mado tho sensational hit of tho game
by sending a three-bagger high over
tho heads of tho out-field, and Gains
comes in. Bell was put out on first
and Hood makes a lucky strike to cen
ter field and brings Rhodes home.
Doano failed to mako first. Hood took
advantage of tho absent-mindedness
of tho Tiger pitcher by dealing home
while tho latter was contemplating the
sphere in his right hand. Do Putron
and Reeder both hit single baggers,
and tho former went to third on a
fumble by first base. Raymond take3
his base on balls. Townsend knocks
a beautiful fly, and is put out, with
three men on bases. After this inning
Missouri changed pitchers and Nebras
ka failed to Increase her score during
the remainder of the game.
Missouri spruced up in the seventh.
McCaslin struck a two-bagger to
Gains, and s:olo third. Broadhead
followed him at tho bat and let him in
on a one-bagger. ThiB was the only
score Missouri made. The remainder
of the game was featureless. Tho
Missouri pitcher managed to hold the
Nebraska batters down to a few hits
of llttlo Importance. The following is

On Saturday afternoon Nebraska re
peated the drubbing given to Missouri
tho day before. The score, 13 to 9,
does not indicate the oncsldcdness of
tho contest, the Tigers at no time be
ing in tho game.
Dempsey, Missouri's crack pitcher,
started to do the twirling, but he last
ed only four innings before tho husky
Nebraska batters. Thurman took his
place and only allowed two runs, al
though recklessness on the part of the
Nebraska players aided him some.
Waasher demonstra:cd most thorough
ly that he could catch and throw, as
well, putting out several of tho Ante
lopes as they attempted to lope down
to second without having drawn out a
permit .The other Missourians acted
at times as though Tfiey hau not seea
a league ball since last spring.
Nebraska likewise tried two slab
artists. Sengor, a new man, started
out, and Immediately got rattled. His
weak point was the Holding of his po
sition. Bender took his place in the
third inning and put up a good cxhi
hi. ion of twirling. Captain Rhodes
at short played a good heady game, de
spite and occasional error, most ef
ficiently backing up both tho second
and third basemen. Tho rest of the
Nebraska boys played good ball, and
when It was necessary could find tho
ball for a base or two. ...
Tho trouble started with Nebraska
at bat. Dempsey, after two or three
preliminary throws, sent one of his
pet curves down over tho home plate.
Do Putron straightened it out' for a
single. Reeder was caught at flrat.
Ray then became anxious to exercise
some, so he stolo second and followed
it up by taking third in the same gent
lemanly manner. Raymond sent a hot
liner to Dempsey, who muffed It. Do
Putron scored. Raymond started to
steal second, when Jio Missouri catch
er threw high, and a new Idea ap
peared above the horizon. Iko stolo
home. Townsend went out on a foul
and Senger hit safe and followed it up
by stealing second. Rhodes' two-bag
drive scored him. Bell went to flrat
on an error by Broadhead. Hood fol
lowed with a two-base hit,, sending tho
captain homo and planting Bell on
third. Maloncy went out at first.
However, Nebraska had piled up four
scores and every man had been at bat.
Tho first two Missourians up In her
half of the inning, failed to reach first.
Braodhead hit safe, stolo second, went
to third on Klcff's bunt, and scored
when Catcher Maloney let a ball get
paBt him. Hood, however, ended tho
agony by a pretty catch of Waashor'a
