DENVER. Colo.. April 26. An accident to

chance to win today's game. A hard hit

the first the wlldness of Hagerman and
Adams of renver forced three Lincoln men
over the plate. In the fourth and fifth In
nings, Denver fell on McUrath, by driving
him to the bench with the scora tied. Den

to have tho game cinched up to the Dolan
In te third Innln.? Lincoln had three men
up, making two hits, and gelng given one
base on balls, without getting a man to
second. One was caught off first and the
othre two' were caught trying to steal sec
ond. In the next Inning James and Sullivan
led off with single, and no one scored,
owing to fast fielding. In the seventh three
Lincoln men drew basea on balls and two
struck out, the last man expiring- on a
weak grounder to third.
The ninth was lively. Oagnier-was given

managers of the tournament did not want to
conflict In any way with the state law.
From the entries that have been re

number of seconds. Broken Bow took
first In the high and broad, jumps and
second in th half mile and Ravenna won
the half mile and second In the short rates.
Broken Bow had a small representation

to Send Team East
Nebraska Athletic Board May Rescind
Its Stand on Base Ball for Time
LINCOLN, April 25, (Special.) A meet
ing of the athletic board of the University
of Nebraska, which had been called for this
evening to decide whether the Cornhusker
base ball team Bhould be disbanded or per
mitted to play the rest of the games on its
schedule, was postponed until tomorrow
Student sentiment is demanding that the
athletic board give the base ball team per
mission to play all the games on the east
ern trip. If this' Is dore the faoulty mem
bers of the board will have to recede from
their Intention not to certify to tho players
under the anti-summer ball ruling ef the
Missouri valley conference.
The Cornhusker board has Informed the
other schools In the" conference that Ne
braska Is aware that It has several pro
fessional players oh Its team. Vet, In spite
of this statement ' the'- other schools are
willing to play the Nebraska team pro
vided the local board will' certify to the
standing of the men. The other- schools
admit the certifying would be only a farce,
but they feel they 'are bound to call for
statements on the Amateur Standing of the
players because ' the conference rules d-
mand that such'a-thin b done. All the
schools have said" IHey would not protest
a single man on the Nebraska demand.

cannot be any obstacle that may not be

An investigation of the weather condi

ideal both for ballooning and aeroplane
work. The prevailing winds toward th
northwest are Just what are needed for
ballooning to maintain a maximum flight
and the atmospheric conditions due to tha

Now that the weather is assuming a

BHN LOMOND, Cul April 26.-In the
presence of a crowd of critical fight fol
lowers who visited Jeffrie' training camp
today th big fighter gave a physical cul
ture exhibition that more than satisfied th
Jeffries' condition compared with his
physical trim when he began training shows
a remarkable improvement and for the
first time today he frolicked about the
gymnasium with his old-time exuberance
Th morning's work-out consulted of a
session with th chest weights, followed by
a fast mix-up with the medicine balls and
the exhibition of shadow boxing, finishing
with three fast rounds with Bob Armstrong

Th boxing, of course, was the special
event of th work-out and took place at

Tex Rlckard and Clarence Berry reached

prise at -Jeffries' marked improvement.
Jeffries played with Berry after his work
out, frisking about Ilk a coy young hippo
potamus, apparently not in the least fa

mlls run on th road In th early morning.
Berry was so well pleased with Jeffries'
showing he declared he was willing to in

Berger has not hesitated to say that In
the part Jeffries lacked fire snd ginger,
but this morning he declares he was satis
fied for the first time.
"We could not possibly hsv hoped for
anything better," said Berger. "Jim is in
great form. About all he needs Is plenty
of boxing and you may depend upon It I
will see he gets it."
Rlckard requested Berger to go to San
Francisco a week from today, when the
promoter proposes to post an sddltlonal

then have posted $.'o.0h0 of the amount to

AMAZING FEAT OF MEMORY
Conductor Toscanlnl'a Achievement
Is a Mental Phenomenon Be
Ons evening recently, as upon a previous
Saturday afternoon, . there was a demon
stration of the capacity of the human mind
with respect to "powers of memory the like
of which has never been witnessed in New
York City. The conductor of the Metropol
itan Opera company. Toscanlni, a man of
slight physique and no suggestion of phy
sical power, conducted the massive opera,
"Die Melsterslnger," Wagner's only com
edy opera, without having before him a
single page or even note of the stupen
dous score.- He had likewise conducted,
earlier in the season, the production of
"Tristan and Ysolde" without any score
upon the conductor's desk. This production
has caused greater comment among true
muslo lovers than anything given by either
of the grand opera companies this winter.
Even the most critical of the abler mu
sical critics of 1 New York dismissed their
caution and reserve tn writing of this per
formance of "The Melsterslnger." And as
a musloal production alone it, with "Tris
tan," stands apart as possibly the supreme
revelation New York has had of Wagner'B
genius. But Toscanlnl's exploit reflects an
even greater phenomenon of the mind.
Rctcos Oonkling spent three weeks of in
eessaat toll in committing to memory the
speech In the academy of music In the sec
ond Grant campaign, -which occupied three
hoars in its -delivery. ' The marvels of mem
ory' which were :charactorislo. of Macauley
and alto of Gladstone, -verbal memory, en
abling them to repeat page after page of
Homer, are ofterr.ciuoted si- perhaps the
highest examples of the capacity of the
brain to absorb and to-retain the written
er printed word.
But Toscanlni mastered the score of an
opera which required four and one-half
hours for the production. An operatic score
Is very different from the printed page,
which has only word after word and line
upon line. The soore contains almost In
finite numbers of notes, and these have
their respective parts among the various
instruments of the orchestra, as well as the
voices of the chorus and of the leading
singers. All of these details must be mas
tered, not one lost. And it was easy to
discover as Toscanlni Conducted that every
note and every instrument and every voice
in the entire' corps was absolutely at his
command. And It was said of htm that
this is also true of all the scores of operas
which he conducts. That surely Is a men
tal phenomenon beyond the power of anal
ysis or investigation. It ranks with the
world's greatest feats of memory. Holland,
