In tho second inning tho Nebraska
boys added five more talloys to their
score, and thereby cinched the game.
Do Putron, tho first man up, tickled a
Dompsey curve for two bases and
scored on Rcedcr's out. Raymond got
his base on balls, and Townsend did
tho same. Songcr succeeded in getting
tangled up with tho ball and took first
filling the bases. Captain Rhodes
came up to bat with blood in his eyes
and fanned, making two outs. Bell,
just to show how it could bo done,
connected with tho ball for three bases,
bringing in three runs. Hood lilt to
left field, and while the Missourians
in those pnrts played with tho ball,
Bell scored and Hood went to second.

long single, brought in two more.
Waasher went out.
Nebraska drew a blank in the third.

THE GIRLS' TOURNAMENT.
Tho statement made In thoso col
umns las: week that the players from
tho Lincoln high school objected to
Mr. Wilbur Andreson as an official was
not accurate. They did not object to
him, hut on the other hand urged that
ho serve. This was conceded them, al
though it was originally wished to
have, if possible, only women officials.
The second day tho University play
ers in their turn asked Mr. Spencer
Cortelyou to serve. Both nro unusual
ly competent and served well and to
everybody's satisfaction. An appreci
ative word should bo said of all tho of
ficials in the tournament. Miss Pills
bury of Wahoo served in ono capacity
or another In almost every match. Her
presence and cordial readiness to act
placed tho university players deep in
her debt. Miss Woodsmall of Omaha
served no less often and was also an
excellent official, quick and clear and
accurate of decision, and thoroughly
posted In the rules.
A few things to which tho high
school people objected were these:
They demurred at six players. The
women's rules expressly allow from
five to ten players on a team. The
university teams usually have six, be
cause of the size of the field, and the
other visiting teams agreed und liked
six for tho same reason. Fur her,
pluyers on both teams wero challenged
on the ground that they were "profes
sional athletes." Tho expression "pro
fessional woman athlete" is per sc
somewhat ridiculous, but charges were
seriously put forth, boforo and after
tho tournament. Tho captain of the
first team Is a graduate student. Two
of the players have played the piano
In the gymnasium, another has assist
ed in the check room for cloaks and
wraps. Another has recorded anthrop
ometric measurements for Dr. Hast
ings. Several of tho others are mem
ber? of and receive instruction in an
advanced gymnasium class. None of
theso things, any more than tho fact
of having received an A. B. diploma,
lifts a university student nor any one
else into the realm of tho "professional
athlete." It may be said, though tho
saying is Fuperfluous and nlmost as
abeurd as the necessity of snylng it,
that the high school players did not
play against a single player not eli
gible anywhere in the world as an ama
teur. No rules have ever been formu
lated for eligibility in women's
matches; but judged by any amateur
standard the list of players was quite
unimpeachable. Ordinary common
sense with regard to what is meant by
"professionalism" In athletics would
show tho comic character, not to men
tion tho discourtesy of ouch an atti
Miss Fowler of tho second team, who
is "student help" in correcting floor
work, stayed out of tho game with the
high school on their inslsteuco so that
thoy did not. need to play against her.
Sho took part In the match against
Omaha tho JaUer having no objection
and not considering her "profession
al." She is tho only ono to whom by
any possibility this word could bo
btrctched to apply, and tho at onco
wlthdrow on learning that there wero
objections to hor playii g.
.The chlof thing, ho.wcYotS that did
not scorn commendable is that the
high school team did not mako known
thglr objsctlons and wishes when the
list of players was given theni and the
conditions of the tournament made
known. Nor did they go at onco to
ho management, as would have boon
fair an open. Instead, on tho ovo of
tho tournament, letters wero written,
containing misinformation of tho na'-1
turo Indicated abovo, to y,Wal;oo auu
Omaha, endeavoring to -joncert feeling
and action against tho givers of tho
tournament, and this at tho last mo
ncnt, when it would have been impos
sible to put oUtm teams in tho field
Fortunately tho action of Wahoo and
Omaha was pronpt, sportsmanlike and
decisive, olse, thanks to tho Lincoln
players, tho tournament would have
boon broken up tho nljrbt boforo. If
tho high school players objected to the
conditions or players of the tourna-'
mont, tho remedy was simple and ob
vious. Aocep ance of tho invitation,
extended them in friendly and hospita
Die spirit and with tho best intention's,
was not compulsory. Having accept
ed, what part could bo theirs except
to further, like tho other visiting
teams, in all ways open to them, the
success and pleasantness of tho occa
sion. Certainly it was not especially
graceful of them to do their best to
wreck it a: tho last moment or to mar
its conduct by a continuous attitude of
criticism and dictation. It Is much to
bo regretted that their peculiar spirit
In women's athletic events-r-whlch of
all in the world ought to bo pleasant,
friendly affairs has mado more games
with thorn impossiblo and hurt the
nascent institution of girls' basket ball,
which all lovers of athletics for wom
en should like to see placed and kept
on a high and friendly level.
Tho rules followed by the university
plavors lu ihe tournament aro the
Rules of Basket Ball for Women, as
adopted by the Conference on Physical
Training In 1S99. These were literally
carried out. If they had been read
before hand J)y tho high school man
agement, instead of rules for men'sor
ganlzntlons, probably much less dis
cussion wou'd havo arisen.
Continued from imgo 1
tion of the scene, placing himself in
front of It and describing tho events
into tho receiver.
Views of the party, the Instruments
and the landscape during the eclipse
were thrown on tho screen to illustrate
tho different. points in the lecture.
Professor Swezcy, in speaking of tho
constitution of the sun, said: "It is
composed of gaseous matter. Wo
know this from the fact that in spite
of Its low specific gravity, it contains
such heavy materials as Iron, mag
nesium and other me als. The corona
or outer layer of tho sun's atmosphere,
is composed of tho very lightest gases
and contains a new clement which has
never been found on the earth, called
coronium. Tho black ubsorptlon
bands In tho spectrum, known as
Fraunhofcr's lines, are due to a thin
layer of metallic substance located at
tho surface of tho photosphoro-"
Tho speaker hero went iito the
realms' of scientific fancy and showed
several views of tho earth as seen
from tho moon, and lunar landscapes
in earth-light. Red und bluo land
scapes and a sky in which tho stars
wero visible In the daytlmo vero the
chief objects of Interest In theso views.
In closing Professor Swezey stated
that having brought his audience safe
ly to tho moon he would leavo them
there to find their way back to tho'
earth as best they could.
