Japanese departments have become so popular in the largo eastern cities, and

The foot ball season is over. The
team has gone out of training and are
indulging in many heretofore forbidden
frivolities. Manager Oury closed the
season with a deficit but thanks to his
shrewd business management it is only
a small one. The Thanksgiving game
was the cause of it. A bad day, hence
a light attendance tended to reduce Ne
braska's share of the receipt?.
The team expects to leave next week
for a short trip through Texai, playing
exhibition games at Galveston. Dallas
and Houston. This is the only means at
hand to raise money enough to pay the
balance duo Coach Robinson, whose
work has certainly been of a superior
character. Ho did what money has
failed to do, he made somethirg out of
nothing. With this team back next
year and a large field of recruits to pick
from, Nebraska ought to have a team of
pennant winners in 1S97.
Now that winter is so far advanced
that the enjoyment of outdoor sports is
almost impossible, indoor games are at
tracting considerable attention. Basket
ball is becoming quite a feature of the
gymnasium work at present. It is
played by the young women as well as
by the young men in the department of
physical training. The game of basket
ball is a remarkable one alike in its
origin and its rapid spread and popular
ity. It was only in '92 that the game
was devised and is now played from
Canada to Mexico and from Portland to
'Frisco in the colleges, Young Men's
Christian associations and athletic
clubs. The game was organized in tho
Y. M. C. A. training school at Spring
field, Maes., by James Naiswith, now
physical director of tho Y. M. C. A.
gymnasium at Denver.
Like Leverrier's discovery of Nep

certain conditions. Having specified
the conditions he deliberately devised a
gamo that should meet these.
It can be played indoors or out. It has
been played in a gymnasiu 21 12x20 and
can bo played on a foot ball field: It can
bo played by any number from 5 to 20.
Tho twisting, bending, wriggling, run
ning and reaching leave no muscle un
used. It is an attractive game as evi
denced by its rapid spread over tho en
tire field of athletics.
Everybody plays it. Men, women and
children. It is much in favor at many
of the women's colleges.
No indoor sport has yet reached its
popularity. Many of the objectionable
features of foot ball aro avoided. For
example, running with the ball is not
allowed not can any player tackle
another. The ball can-not bo held with
the arms, it cannot bo kicked or punched
with the fist though it may be slapped
with the open hand. Disregard for
these rules and of others as well consti
tute a foul, the penalty for which is an
unimpeded throw for a goal by the op
posing side from a distance of fifteen
feet. If the rules are adhered to this pen
alty soon reduces fouls to a minimum.
The university floor is a remarkably
tine one for basket ball.
