tho fair grounds will be made use of.
Much is expected of -the city and its
schools by those who will represent
other Institutions because of the mag
niflcont record that the Lincoln high
school has mode at, these events and
it will be to the interest of the Uni
versity as well as the city to furnish

tho country will be here either as mere
visitors or as coaches for high schools
represented in the meet.

association are Lincoln men, Prof. A. J.
Mercer and Floyd llaston, both from
tho high school.' A large number ot

Tho freshman-Junior disagreement
over Tuesday- night's championship
game is still unsettled. The juniors
yesterday offered to accept any one of
four wayn out of tho difficulty to sub
mit the matter to .tbe University ath
letic board, to tho faculty members
of that board, or to three basket ball
atJthorities, or to replay the game.
The freshmen insisted upon placing the
decision in the hands of the lntor
claBB athletic board, though rather ac
knowledging that such a course would
bo more favorable to them than to the
juniors, and not denying tho Junior
claim that this would bo a solution not
expressly demanded by tho Inter-class
constitution. One of the. leading Uni
versity authorities on basket ball has
added to complication of the situation
by an aBBeitfon that "one team
can claim the game just as well as the
other," implying his belief 'that tho
juniors were quite Justified in the con
tention. It is hoped the matter may reach a
settlement by tho first of the week, and
the unsatisfactory and unprofitable
wrangling be nded. The Nebroskan
has no sides to take on the diBpute,
but Joins with others In urging a
speedy adjustment, and a turning of
energies to more timely and important,
Saturday evening tho Union boyfr

During this week University ath
letics, in Bpite of the cold weather and
muddy field, have made quite a consid
erable progress, especially in baseball.
When tho men were permitted to be
out, nearly the. whole afternoon was
spent in hard practice. 'The personnel
of the team Is quite apparent, and tho
squad will be cut down to twenty men
after the game with the laws today.
Track work, although not so seriously
handicapped On account of the weather,
progresses quite satisfactorily under
the circumstances. The chief complaint
is that the men are slow at turning
rGUt. TP'1? !8 mainly due f,o the fact
that they have not yet been excuse
from drill ob usual. Besides, drill takes
five hours a week now, whereas it took
only three befor. As It is compulsory,
the men naturally neglect the track
work .and meet ulth the requirement
wb v vjnw vuuiroverBy on over
which class is basket ball champion.
The juniors and freshmen are involved,
and it is -believed the matter -will '.like
ly bearbltrated soon.
