Track Men Preparing to Meet
South Dakota.
From all reports coming from South
Dakota the team Intro has not done
a well as our men. They were pretty
badly defeated on the loth ly the
Brookings Agricultural College Their
sprinters do not appear to he very
fast, an Brookings took most of these
events. . .Comparing these with our
records, tho home men should win
most oL them.
The'mlle run was won In 5:15, while
States made It In 4:42 last Saturday
The 100-yard dash was won in 10 3-5.
82yard .In 23 2-5. by the Brookings
saen, so that Nebraska should take
f rat and second In these events. They.
however, won the hammer throw at
117 feet, which means a close contest
in that ovent. In the discus throw
Jfeey 98 feet, and about 34 feet
ip the shot put.
U Is expected Ha user will win first
in both hurdle- races.
South Dakota may take the broad
jump from us as their man has made
21 -feet, 5 inches.
On the whole Nebraska ought to
win the meet handily, although a team
can Improve wonderfully In the space
Of throe weeks.
In the meet Monday Nebraska ought
to show marked superiority: ' The
showing made against Minnesota was
consistent with the true (lass and
speed of our men when they are in
their best form. In fact it was the
first try-out that they have had In
Which it vraa possible for them to show
their true form and the effects of heir
Tho last time we met South Dakota
we were outclassed, but at the coming
meet it is more than, probable that
Nebraska will show up to much better
effect. The comparison of records cer
tainly argues weff for us. and these
ran not deceive to such an extent as to
turn the balance against us.
Nfext Monday our baseball men will
Ejplay two games with the brawny men
from Havelock. Last jear our team
defeated the Havelock mon quite hand
ily. This year the Law team has lost
several well played games to them.
Havelock, however. ,plays a ttrong
game of ball throughout the whole sea
son Thoy bad -a-rattling-good-toam
last year, and the games Monday ought
to bo good ones.
Considerable interest has been man
ifested In tho great dual meet between
Vale and Harvard last Saturday, in
which Yale was the winner by a score
or 57 7-12 tp 46 -7T2. Four dual records
were broken In the two mile run. the
jl20-yard hurdles, the shot-put and the
hammer throw. The time for the two
mile run was 9 minutes 51 1-5 sec

The committee which has In charge
arrangements for the banquet of the
Lincoln high school alumni, to be held
at Fraternity hall on Friday. June 3.
urges that every alumnus make it a
point to be present, as the immediate
success of the enterprise, as well as
the permanency of the association, de
pends on the Interest shown in sut h
a leuniou. There has been a notable
lack of Interest In the past few years
This is perhaps due to the- fat t that
the banquet as originally instituted
waa given nil loaniiiclL 1q darning,
a form of amusement which the older
members do not enjoy. "This pleasant
feature will be eliminated by the judi
cious. arrangemcntlf the program. A

An Opinion from Iowa Concern
ing Difficulties There.
Few authentic opinions have ome
fiom the University of Iowa concern
ing the difficulty In which President
MacLean has been involved Hence
the following from the Dally low an
may pioe interesting to those who
km w i'resid nt MacLean when at this
"The widespread circulation of re
ports both pro and con concerning
President Maclean have resulted In
nothing but a wild chaos of press dis
patches and denials. That thiB attack
should be made by an alumni oigani
.ation is uncertain and Improbable
slnco it lacks the judiciousness and
sano policy which generally charac
terize the proceedings' of any alumni
body. That It might b the attack of
an individual inspired by a personal
motive is hard to believe for such an
attack to receive credence at all should
be signed. Thus far to all appearances
It seems to be another outbreak of yel
low journalism Tho untrutnful quot
ing of the University faculty and their
prompt denial of any statement what
soever and the Impossibility of finding
the source or foundation of the many
reports would seem to demand that'
public opinion be suspended and no
ciedence at all be given to such vague
and unauthorized reports. When dol
lars and cents appeal more to such
journalism than honor and truth It Is
difficult tor one to keqrfr silent. In a
land where Tree speech 'and the liberty
of the press is maintained it is not
strange that a few abnormal species
should result once In a while. It is a
matter of evolution Blmply. Not until
public sentiment maintains a stricter
censorship upon its own credulity will
we ever hope to be freo of bucIi. The
higher ono proceeds In the scale of life
the fewer parasites one finds in evi
dence. But the virulence and tenacity
of the few, however. Is startling. For
once In the history of the world let the
human race condemn sueh Utrdealrable
detestable growths."

An Error In History Corrected.
The recent article on tjie Morton
History of Nebraska which appeared in
The Nebraskan and which attracted
widespread attention was prepared with
a great deal of care, but one error
Inadvertantly crept In. It was said
that the chapter on the animal life
of Nebraska was written by Professor
1 awrence Fossler. whereas it should
have beep crediled to Professor Law
rence Bruner, the eminent authority on
tbis Bubject. The article in question
was widely quoted and we make this
explanation in justice to Professor
