THE UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA, OCTOBER 17, 1901.
OMAHA MEDICS DISBAND.
Game With the Doctorn Next Sat
urday Cancelled. An Alumni
Game Probable. The
Word has been received from Oma
ha that the Medics' team has dis
banded, thus making a break In tho
schedule. The management, how
over, hopes to fill this by an alumni
game to be played on the University
field. This may necessitate tho can
celling of the game between the Lin
coln high school scrubs and tho Uni
versity third team. Tho rest of the
games will be played as scheduled.
The 'Varsity lined up against tho
scrubs for regular practice last' night.
After about forty minutes of hard
work In which each team held the
ball for about an equal time, tho ptne
tlco closed wlth run around the Held.
The placo kick of Stringer and tho
punting of Plllsbury wero noticeable
features of the practice. Stringer is
fast developing Into a sure klckor.
Ho will undoubtedly bo called upon
to pile up tho score against Wiscon
sin. Plllsbury punted well all through
tho practice, several times punting
out of bounds from the fifty-yard line.
As a whole tho practice was fast and
full of encouragement to tho onlookers.
A larger crowd than usual were along
the side lines and tho south bleachers.
They Beemed to take a strong Inter
est and applauded overy good play.
Eager played half back for tho
scrubs In his old accustomed style and
never failed to make his yards
against the 'Varsity. Bell also proved
to bo a sure ground gainer at half
back on the first team. Ryan, an end
of lajt year, Is again In tho gamo af--ter
being JaM up for about three
weeks with a diaiocated shuulderr-
THE TRACK TEAM.
Captain McComb feels vory much
encouraged over the way tho track
team is shaping In the fall practice.
The general field meet has contributed
much interest and more men are out
than ever before.
Among last year's mon are Carr and
Hewitt for the half mile run and Cap
tain McComb for tho 100-yard dash.
Overturf Is showing up well In tho
shot put: Ludden is doing tho high
jump in good form. Hagenslck, of last
Toar1s-high"flchool -toamrw-ho won JJko.
broad jump in the meet with the high
school, is out for tho broad jump and
pole vault. Paul AndreBon, a brother
of tho famous "Bob," promises well
for the 100-yard dash. Plllsbury and
Kellogg are playing football.
All in all prospects for the track
team were never brighter, and to add
to the general interest it is rumored
that Nebraska will send her represen
tatives to tho inter-collegiate moot at
Chicago next spring.
Captain McComb thinks the general
lack of Interest in track work is
caused by tho small schedule of games.
This year there is more good material
In the school than thero has been fof
some time and with tho proper train
ing Nebraska could develop one of tho
strongest teams in the middle west
Tho baseball schedule always serves
as a stimulant to the spirit of that
gamo. Tho fact that Nebraska takes
a big trip through tho oast Is some
what facinatlng and it keeps good
track men from tho team. Now If sev
eral big meets could bo arranged with 1
colleges like Minnesota and Chicago,
Mr. McComb thinks that there would
bo a greater desire on the part of men
to mako tho team.
THE SCARLET AND CREAM.

the Gleo club at the quarter centennial
