students will have had of seeing their
team to action against an outside college

The splendid showing of the Cornhuekers
on the southern trip hae also nerved to
Increase the deatre of the student fans to
watch ihe work of their representatives.'
Last aprlng the acquisition of Nebraska
field by the engineering department as the
site for a new three-story building left ths
Cornhuaker athletes without an athletic
field and crowded the base ball men off
the campus. Ari attempt was made to se
cure Antelope park, the Western league
base ball grounds, for the use of the uni
versity players, but no satlbfactory ar
rangements were made and the Cornhusk
ers were forced to abandon all efforts to
pUy any games at home. This mason the
athletic field Is. still lacking at the uni
versity, but the base ball management has
made a deal for playing at Antelope park,
and the CJornhuskers will be seen at home
In eight Intercollegiate matches, the first
of which will be the clash with Manhattan
next week. Following this game on Thurs
day, the Nebraska nine will then meet Mis
souri In two contests on Monday and Tues
day, April 36 and 27. ,
Ged Record ia Sooth.
On their southern trip, which was closed
today In a game with theM'niveralty of
Kansas at ' Lawrence, the Cornhuekers
made a good record, and .in. doing ao sprung
a pleasant surprise on the local fans and
turned over the dope pots' of a few of the
local serines, tor inree years previous n
this spring the CornhUHker base ball teams
were so weak that they were regarded as
a Joke among the local student. The work
of these teams was so mlsersbln that the
students at the state school had come to
. I I . ,.. Tl j . ..
dents each year look forward to a winning
nine. Consequently, last week, when the
Cornhuskers began their annual tour Into
Mlasourl and Kansas, It was with Jocular
remarks tnat the local fans spoke of the
prospects of the nine. The Idea that the
Cornhuskers would win any. number of
games waa darided. This predisposition on
the part of the fans to regard the team in
a light vein laid them open to be greatly
surprised when the Cornhuskers should ex
hibit classy play and win game . after
At the beginning of the trip It was ad
mitted by Captain Bcltser and Coach Fox
that success depended on the pitchers. The
twirling staff was composed of three men
Ward, Olmstead and Prouty. In the
opening game of the Journey Prouty, who
at the last" moment before the team left
Lincoln had been substituted for Mathers.
waa placed on the slab and held the small
collegians at Tabor, la., to two scratch
hits. In the other games in which he oc-
upied the rubber he proved his worth and
made good. Olmstead proved wild and his
work was Just a little disappointing. Ward,
the veteran of two seasons, was in fine
form on the trip, however, and was a pus-
ale to the batters who faced him. With
Ward and Prouty doing fast work and
with Olmstead showing up In fairly good
p. form, the Cornhuskers were much stronger
t in the' box than even Coach Fox had ex
ported, them to be, and the weakness
which had been so woeful In this depart
ment In other seasons was practically re.
m' tippsrt br Fielders..
Good support of the pitchers by sll
the fielders contributed In great, measure
to the success of the Cornhuskers r.
the games on the trlu The outfielders 'ltd
exceptionally well, giving the twirl srs
nearly penect support, ut me nrsi rive
games played the Cornhuekers won four,
losing one of a. series of two to Missouri.
Only on of the contests with the "Show
me" players counted toward the Missouri
valley championship, . and the Nebraska
- s iri. wvu mv aaine oy a score n I to i
If Ward is permitted to do the twirling
for the Cornhuskers when Drake comes
to town next week the local university
boy should annex another victory with
out any great difficulty. The Des Moines
school la fairly strong on the diamond this
spring, but has not had the practice the
Nebraska players have been fortunate
enough to get. and for that reason will be
handicapped to a great degree In the meet
ing next Thursday. Besides pitching In
the Drake game Ward also will be put on
the slab for on of the Missouri games the
week following. He had the "show-me"
men at hi mercy In Columbia lust week
and should be able to repeat his trick here.
In case, then. Ward is at his best the
Cornhuskers should tak two of the next
threw game played, and thus maintain
their record established on the southern
trip of winning a big majority of the
Beard io, Gsrera Tea a Is.
At the next meeting of the athletic board
on Tuesday a request will be made that
ths university board assume control over
the tennis tournaments at ths state school.
Just now all tennis contests are in
charge of a university tennis association

by "pot" hunters who fear the stringent
provisions of the new law will seriously
