WIN UNDER DIFFICULTIES.
Unsportsmanlike Tendencies of
Kansas Mar Track Meet.
Thus far the Nebraska track team
of '03 has maintained the record estab
lished by the victorious football eleven
of '02. Two dual meets have been won,
and one of them, with Knox, was the
best victory ever gained by a Univer
sity track team. On Saturday, under
most unfavorable conditions, Nebraska
established her supremacy over her old
rival. Kni.taa, in a meet at Lawrence
by 60 lo : 7 points. Nebraska scored in
every cont except the broad jurri'
and 220 hurdles.
Three University records were
broken, Benedict broke the record in
the pole vault 1V inches with a vault
of 10 feet 8 inches. Manning ran in
excellent form, breaking the record in
the 220-yard dash, formerly held by
Plllsbury at :23 1-5, and making the
440-yard dash in :51 1-5. the University
record being :51. Lehnier established
a new record in the two-mile race by
going the distance in 10:34 1-5, the cor
responding record made on field day
being 11:16. Johnson was unfortunate
in the pole vault. After clearing the
pole at 10 feet 6 Inches he knocked it
off with his foot. Benedict came with
in 1-5 of States' record of 2:6 2-5 In the
Nebraska contested with ten men,
while Kansas entered fifteen. A fresh
man was put In the relay, and several
Kansas men of the type of Captain
Boyle, of the Kansas baseball team,
were on hand. The meet was. hardly
begun when Kansas began "knock
ing." The darker things looked for
them, the harder tney knocked, pro
testing the mile and two mue runs uuu
the relay. Tho result of any tf these
events was not iniluenced in the least
by the alleged "fouls." Nebraska won
the relay race by forty yards, and the
mile run by fifty feet, and In the two
mile the Kansas man crossed the tape
several feet behind Lehmer. The pro
teats were left to Former Coach Out
land, who allowed the one against the
relay. This cost Nebraska ten points.
The track facilities were very un
favorable. Kansas has a cinder track,
but it is only about seven feet wide.
This made It necessary for the hurdles
to be run in heats, a very unfortunate
condition for Nebraska's small team.
It was also necessary to drop one man
in the 220-yard dash, as but three men
could run on tho narrow track. Ne
braska lost the toss and took Burg out
of this race.
Tho methods pursued by Kansas in
conducting athletic contests are rad
ically wrong. Several comments have
been made on the slowness with which
the meet was pulled off. When the
last event was over, the train on which
the CornhUBkera were to have returned
was many miles away, and the team
had to stay over, returning Sunday
night instead of Sunday morning.
The members of the Kansas track
team were not "knockers," and the
trouble was all caused by those who
did not participate in tho eventB. Mr.
Whipple, the captain of the team, act
ed the perfect gentleman, and did all In
his Dowor to make tho trip a pleasant
one for the Nebraska men. Notwith
standing the unfavorable, conditions
under which the meet was held, the
work done by Nebraska was very grati
fying to those interested in athletics.
The records were, almost without ex
ception, very good and speak for them
selves. The coach and captain are well
pleased with tho results, and are en

JUNIORS TOOK IT.
Wrested Championship in Debate
from Seniors Last Night.
In a warmly fought contest yester-
Iday evening on the "Incorporation of
I abor Unions," the affirmative, repre
sented by tho Junior debaters, proved
their superiority to the sophomores, be
ing awarded the decision unanimously.
In spite of tho fact that a depresslngly
small crowd was present, both sides
entered Into the Bplrlt of the contest
with enthusiasm and determination.
Each speaker was allowed eight min
utes for argument and three for rebut
tal. C. Wilburn opened the debate for
the affirmative by analyzing his side
of the question thus? The Incorpora
tion of labor unions would be of gen
eral benefit to society, as it would be
beneficial to tho unions, the employer
and the public. .. uburn undertook to
prove that It would benefit Boclety,
Paul that It would benefit the unlonB,
and Johnson that It would benefit the
employer. Each of these speakers cited
strong authorities, and the whole de
bate hinged on the point whether or
not the Incorporation of unions would
make them responsible or not. Kleck
ner opened for the negative by assail
ing the competency of the authorities
cited by the affirmative. He admitted
that responsibility in itself was a good
thing, but questioned whether It would
govern the actions of the trades unions
If they were Incorporated. Sawyer,
second speaker for the nogatlve, sus
tained him and introduced further ar
gument snowing the Incompetency of
tho authorities cited by the affirmative.
Clark proceeded along the same llneB
and introduced the argument of arbi
tration. Wilburn closed for the affirm
ative anJ Sawyer for the negative.
The Judges, Professors Fogg. Smith,
and Aylsworth, announced their deci
sion after only two minutes' delibera
tion, their verdict being unanimously
In favor of the Juniors.
Mr. J. V. Tobin, of the senior class,
occupied the chair during the evening.
