DANCING 8.30 Si
Tho fact that Nobraska will send
a track team to tho conference moot
at Chicago has caused renewed en
thusiasm by all candidates. The pre
liminaries last Saturday brought 'out
many new men, but the class meet of
next Saturday promises to furnish
some keen competition and It would
not bo surprising to Beo some moro
records broken. From present indi
cations tho Sophomores will carry off
the honors Saturday, for they will bo
represented by. some strong men In
Meyer, McDonald, Weller, Bowman,
Craig, Copeland, Smith, Manning,
Havens, and Hauser. The Freshmen
will have some strong men and should
at least land second place. Some of
the most prominent men of this class
are: Burruss, Wallace, Davis, Cornell
The damp weather this week will
prevent the men who participated In
last Saturday's meet from making
much Improvement, but tho men out
for the first time this year will get a
chance to show what they can do.
Among these will bo Manning, States
and Haven. Manning Is well re
membered by tho track enthusiasts
from his remarkable performances In
tho dashes two years ago. States
has been a mombor of, tho team ever
since he entered the University, and
many times he has added five points
to our score. Iast year ho found a
good running mate In Havens, whose
performances In the" Minnesota meet
and at Chicago aro sufficient testimony
as to his worth. With these men, and
the all ready fast team Nebraska
should not take a back soat for uny
one In track athletics.
