first time company A has been award

sltics and pitched his usual game, al
lowing only eight hits to bo made by
tho Highlanders. Thompson, the
twirler for the visiting team, did ex
cellent work, striking out seven men.
To him must bo given much of the
credit for their victory.
Notwithstanding tho threatening
weather, a fair sized crowd was in at
tendance, bringing with them a goodly
amount of enthusiasm. Tho slight
sprinkle settled the dust and as a re
sult it was the prettiest game seen
here this year for both spectators and
players. Tho Highlanders wont to
bat first and much to their amaze

Tho same happened to the Rhodes
family In their turn. Tho game up

The subscribers to tho stock of tho

Saturday afternoon and perfected an
organization. Mr. T. J. Hewitt was
elected chairman. Mr. Hewitt stated
that tho purpose of the meeting was
the election of a board of directors and

In the first college game on the
campus last Wednesday the 'varsity
team went down in defeat before the
Highland Park aggregation and at the
end of the tenth Inning the final score
stood 5 to 3, and the victorious side
could easily be designated by the vic
torious smiles covering their faces.
No one knows just how it happened
that the score stood as It did, but on
the whole their strong battery did tho
work, coupled with their ability to hit
the ball when necessary. In team
work and indivdual playing tho
Rhodes team was far superior; their

Reeder saved a probable score by a
sensational catch in left field. In the
fifth inning the first scoring was done.
Smith of the Park team went out to
Rhodes. Dunning went -to bat and
landed a two-bagger. Manahan hit to
Rhodes, who errored and Dunning
scored. Tho home team in turn suc
ceeded in running in a score. Raymond
and Doane went out to center and
third respectively. Hood hit safe and
stole second. Bell hit safe and Hood
Again hi the seventh Nebraska gets
two more scores, due to the costly
errr's of the visitors, who seemingly
wiflt to pieces for the moment. But
J or the moment only, for with the
game practically cinched by the home
team the Highlanders grew desperate
in the ninth and began to hit Gaines
hard. With two outs, Manahan got
! his base on balls; Osmundson hit a fly
to center, just over second. De
Putron though making a pretty run,
errored, and Osmundson made a cir-
cle of the diamond, this bringing in
two scores. Nebraska made nothing
in their half. Score at end of the
ninth inning 3 to 3.
In the tenth the Des Moines team
again began their vicious batting and
two more scores were charged up
against the home team. This was
the last of the scoring and the game
ended 5 to 3 In favor of the visitors.
