CREIGHTON WILL PLAY
BASE BALL THIS SPRING
The outlook for baa ball at Creightoa
university this anting la very poor. At a
meeting ot the gnembers of last year's
team with Father Devlin, manager of
athletics. It waa decided not to put a
team tnt th field. The reason for thla
action waa the poor support given last
year's team, a lack of good varsity ma
terial and a shortage In the athletic fund
caueed by foot ball.
The principal reason Is th lack of sup
port by tha students. Last year Cretaitot
met Morntngalde, Dea Motnaa college aad
Tabor on Crelghton field and tailed 'to
make expensea on a single gam. The
same result la feared thla year. Ctiigbj
toa lacks varsity material because ot tb
early date on which the profasaorvJ de
partments of the University are dlamlased.
Again, the bet players in these depart
ments hav played professional ball and
the management refusea to let them play.
