TRACK MEN MEET
Seventy Men Report at the Mass
' Meeting Yesterday.
(QXaJorlty of Those Proient
to Try Out.
About seventy men assembled in the
Cbapel yesterday morning to discuss
track work. This is the greatest num
ber ever together for this purpose and
the enthusiasm shown is indicative
of a good track team to represent Ne
braska this year.
Dr. Clapp addressed the men for a
short time, giving general directions to
be followed If1 the men are to be suc
cessful in their work. He said, In
part: "A man to bo a successful track
athlete must put much time and work
in his training. Upon conscientious
tialnlng de-ponds the success of the
candidate. The trainer or coach can
not develop a man and get the true
worth out of him unless the man Is
willing to sacrifice enough to give hard
and thorough work to the event."
Captain Hagensick spoke to the fel
lows and expressed a desire that every
man report for work as soon as possi
ble a it is time to begin hard work
the first meet being only five weeks
distant. Hauser, Weller, and Bene
dict all gave short talks about track
work. Benedict said that the men
should follow explicitly the directions
of the coach. If all directions were
followed and the men worked hard
their- is no reason why they should
not develop a winning team.
Dr. Clapp discussed the schedule and
the different meets to be held. A meet
with Minnesota is probable and if ar
ranged will be held in Minneapolis. A
meet with Colorado Is to be held in
Lincoln the first of May. Besides these
a meet with either Iowa Agricultural
College at Ames or with University of
South Dakota at Sioux City will be
held. The Athletic Board is also con
sidering the advisability of sending
a relay team to the big meet to be
held in Minneapolis this spring. A
team will be sent if It is thought they
are last enough to make a creditable
showing for Nebraska. This Relay
Meet in Minneapolis will be held im
mediately after the Pennsylvania Re
lay Meet at Philadelphia, and It prom
ises to begone of the most prominent
athletic events held in the west this
In order that more systematic work
may be accomplished' and that each
man may have Individual attention the

tended to try for. In cade any others

Football Schedule for 1905 Al
most Rounded Out.
AUchlgMn, Illinois and MlnneaoUi Three
of the Gnmea Scheduled.
After overcoming almost unsur
mountablo obstacles in his efforts to
prepare a schedule of football games
for 1905 which would suit the studonts
rand players ex-Manager Davis has so
far completed dates for the coming
season that tho schedule as It now
stands is first ready for publication.
Tho dates are:
September 23 Grand Island College
September 30 Lincoln High School
October 7 University of South Da
kota at Lincoln.
October 14 Knox College at Lin
coln. October 21 Univorslty of Michigan

November 18 University of Minne
sota at Minneapolis.

Ever since Michigan attained pre
eminence among Big Nine Colleges and
Nebraska proved herself to bo In a
class all by herself further west there
has been a desire here that the Corn
huskerB and Wolverines meet on the
gridiron, and next year, thanks to Mr.
Davis' efforts this wish Is to bo grati
fied and athletic relations on the foot
ball field will bo opened up with Mich,
igan University. The rest of tho sched
ule including a continuance of football
relations with two other conference
teams, Illinois and Minnesota, as so
far completed, Is by far tho best round
ed schedule Nebraska has yet had, the
harder contests alternating with the
easier games, an arrangement so de
sirable and yet so difficult to secure, in
a football schedule.
The game with Minnesota was ar
ranged to bo played In Minneapolis be
cause of terms thus secured which are
very favorable to Nebraska.
Correspondence Is now being car
ried on to secure games for the 4th
and 11th of November and it is thought
the end of thlaweek will see tho sched
ule complete. The two games .yfltfo
be arranged for will probably be with
schools with whomwe have played
