LINCOLN. April 10.-Speclal.)-Wlth the
Cornhuaker base ball team away on Its an
nual southern Journey and with most of
' the track candidates spending the Easter
recess at their respective homes In the
state, there has been a cessation of activi
ties In university athletic circles for the
' last three days that will be continued until
next Friday, when the Mb western Inter
collegiate gymnastic contest will be held In
tha armory of the locsl Institution. Five of
the leading schools of the middle west will
have teams entered In this annual meet
ing, these being Wisconsin, Chicago. Min
nesota. Washington and Nebraska universi
ties. This contest will decldt? the team
, and individual championships of the west-
. ern gymnastic association for 1909.
At tha present time both the Individual
and the team tltlea are reposed at Wiscon
sin, where they were last spring captured
by the Badgers. F. 8. Zeldlhack winning
' the honors for the best all-around gymnast
for the second consecutive time. The
Badgers are strong again this year and are
' held as favorites for winning the team
contest In Lincoln next week, in the in
dividual contest their best representative,
O. P. Osthoff, will have several worthy op
ponents and Is likely to fall to win the
all-round medal. This year's Wisconsin
team is coached by Zeldlhack, the captain
and sta of last season's gymnasts, who Is
optlmlslo , about the prospects of his rep
resentatives and predicts another double
victory for the Madison school.
Nebraska ricked Third.
In chances for winning the team contest
' Minnesota is conceded to stand next to Wis
consin, with Nebraska third to tho Badgers,
Chicago fourth and Washington university
fifth. The Gophers are believed to be un
usually strong thla spring and reports com
ing from Minneapolis add strength to this
1 opinion. Dr. Cooke Is coaching the Minne
sota team and declares he has a much
hotter point-winning bunch than he took to
Madison fast spring. His talk about the
contest when he was In Lincoln with the.
Gopher basket ball team In January was
sanguine In ita tone and Indicated he was
Very well pleased - with the chances he
thought his team would have against WIs
conaln In the meeting.
Nebraska has a weaker team than the
one that represented the Cornhuskers last
year and docs not expect to got better than
third place. It has no cinch on taking that
place, either, and may be pushed closely
by Chicago In winning It. Little la known
of the Maroons this season except that It
has . been rumored they are stronger than
last season or (lie yesr before and are fig
uring on making a Rood showing in the
games at Lincoln. The Cornhuskers, how
ever, ' ara not worrying much about the
team contest and will not be keenly disap
pointed If they fall below Chicago In It.
Their Interest and greatest efforta will be
centered in tha Individual contest, to the
winning of which much honor Is attached.
Local students and Coach Dr. Clapp be
lieve this championship will come to the
Cornhuaker school this year.
Mitchell Chief Hope.
For winning the all-round contest Ne
braska's hope are pinned to D. C. Mitchell,
wlii last year won second place at Wis
consin, being next to the great Zeldlhack,
and who the year before that took third
place In the annual games. Mitchell is
now the holder of the title of leading gym
nast at tho state school, having won It by
making a big majority of the points scored
In a contest of five events with six other
athletes as his competitors. He Is star
performer on The horizontal and parallel
bars and On the sldehorse. Dr. Clapp says
the young gymnast has improved greatly
since last season and predicts that he will
win the most points In the all-round con
test. O. r. Osthoff of Wisconsin and one
of the reprasentatlves from Washington uni
versity ara expected to be the chief con
tenders with Mitchell for the Individual
Each school will he allowed to have five
lepreseutalives- In the games, and aii of j
the universities, with tha exception of
Washington, will send the full number of
mm. Tha St. Louis school will have a
team of thne men entered, this number
having been settled upon by the Washing
ton athletic authorities as b?lng a large
enough representation for them to send to
tha first tnti reolleglate gymnastic contest
In which they have chosen to compete.
The list of events fur the contest Includes
tha following: Tumbling, wrestling, club
iwlngluy and work on the flying rings, the
utslde horse and the parallel and flori
sontal bars. Points won In the tumblng
and wrestling bolts will not be counted for
the team and individual championships.
First la Missouri taller.
Special preparations are being made at
the state school for the contest, which will
ba the first of Its kind ever held at a Mis
souri valley university. The Nebraska
armory will be decorated with the colors
and . pennants of the various schools to
show tha appreciation of the Cornhuaker
management and students for the four is
Itlng teams. Unusual interest is bring man
ifested in the approaching games, and it is
expected the largest crowd that ever wit

College Team Rarely Able to Take
I flame From Opponents.
Tho Bllevu9 college team beat the Ne
braska School for the Deaf Saturday by
a small score. The final score was t to
7, a passed ball by the catcher of tho
Nobrnhka School for the Deaf letting In
the final score. This was Bellevue's first
game this year 'and the playing was some
what ragfred. The high wind also made
snappy playing hard and the Nebraska
School for the Deaf were ahle to run In
five scores In the first two innings. A
home run by Anderson of the Nebraska
School for the Deaf was the only startling
feature of the playing. Dow, catcher for
Bellevue, had his finger badly broken In
tha eighth Inning and this will put htm
out of the game for probably-a couple of
weeks. Stark, Bcll(vur' new rltcher,
went In fur two Innings and showed up
exceedingly well. Roach, who is also a
new man, showed remarkable control and
lots of steam Ohman. although not in
old-time form, yet is doing fine work, and
It is honed that by tlie time Bellevue
meets the Omaha league , team, April 24,
they will all be In good shape. JJneup:

BADGER ATHLETES ARE WOEFUL
Faculty Votes to Limit Foot Ball
Schednle to Five Games.
MADISON. Wis., April 10.-(8pecial.)-
Tha one topic of the week here in the way
of athletics has been the action, of the
university faculty in deciding against a
seven-game foot ball schedule for next
fall. The vote against the proposition was
almost unanimous, even those who had ex
pressed themselves ss being in favor of the
two extra games climbing on the band
wagon when they saw the way aentimont
Tha faculty' has been severely criticized
for Its action, in this respect. Every
student organization that takes any. part
in athletics has gone on record as being
in favor of the longer schedule. Nearly
every other university In the west has
gone back to the seven-game Idea and with
Wisconsin playing only five it will mean a
severe handicap to prospects that are by
no means bright at tho present time.
Anothor indication of the alleged hostile
attitude of the faculty towards athletics
came out at tha cloe of the last semster
whenv'Red" Wilkinson, tha great Badger
freshman halfback, was dropped for being
deficient. Although he has been making
good marks In his studies this semster he
will not be able to play because of the fact
that he will not have the required number
of freshmen credits. Ha wae allowed to re
turn to school only on condition that he
would not go Into athletics next year.
The base ball outlook st Wisconsin is
not very encouraging at the present time.
The men have not had a chance to do
any outsldo work to speak of on account
of the frigid weather. Tho Badgers are
slated for game with the Illlnl April 17,
but unless they get a chance to work at
Camp Randall all this week they will be
In no condition to stack up against the
great aggregation that Huff has gathered
for this season. Coach Barry Is working
to develop some sluggers for that is tba
plsce where the Badgers are going to be
woertlly weak, according to tha present
Tho Badger relay runners have stayed
over during tho Easter vacation in order
to get Into shape for the University of
Pennsylvania games which take place at
Philadelphia on April 26. The men are
rounding Into shape fast and tha belief is
entertained here that they ara fast enough
to secure a place. Mitchell and Richards
look good for :62 or better on the outdoor
track, while Morris, Natwick. Juergens and
Schacht can all negotiate the distance In
better than It is probable that five
men will be taken on the trip. Tho
students have started a subscription list
to defray the expenses of the trip. Thla

team has entered into competition with tha
Coach Ten Eyck of the varsity crews
expects to have his men out on tho water
Monday. The lake opened up Wednesday
and the crews would have gone out last
Friday were It not for the fact that tha
piers have not been put. Into position. The
start Is about a week later thla year and
the coach Is worrying about tho freshmen
crew. A professor will accompany the
crew men to Poughkeepsie thla year to
give the men their examinations after they
get to the Hudson.
