Perfect Day and a Hard Track Cause
Four University Records tQxBe
A large and enthusiastic crowd wit
nessed tho Colorado-Nebraska moet on
the Fair Grounds last Saturday. Ne
braska proved tho stronger of tho two
teams and carried off victory, 69-48.
Tho expectations of the crowd, that
records would be brokon, was fulfilled.
The fine condition of tho track and
the good weather were responsible in
a good degree for tho excellent show
ing made by tho teams.
Colorado won tho first events and
led Nebraska by two points, but
things wore soon evened up by Ne
braska taking both first and second
in the pole vault. Colorado succeeded
In workng her side of the score up to
13 points, and here the scoro stayed
for somo tme, while Nebraska was
cinching the meet. The Varsity was
successful to the extent of Bhuttlng
Colorado out of four events, 120 and
220 hurdles, pole Tauif, and high Jump,
while Colorado only shut us out of one,
the discus throw.
Several surprises were sprung on
both Colorado and Nebraska. Prob
ably the greatest was in tho distance
runs, when "Colorado took both. It
was plain to be Been that States and
Havens were out of condition. States
has made better time in the mile than
was made in the Saturday meet, but
tho two mile race was ton seconds
(taster than Havens' time. Nebraska
sprung a 8urprlBeon Colorado by tak-
both places In the hurdles; for she
lad depended on at least one first from
Four Varsity records were broken
by Nebraska men In Saturday's meet.
tHauBer smashed both his 120 and 220
hurdle records, reducing the 220 from
26 4-5 to 26 3-5 and the 120 from 16 4-5
to 16 3-5. Penrod, In the fastest half
mile ever run in Lincoln cut five soc-
onds off tho former record, 2:06 to
2:01 4-5. Manning sliced off 3-5 of a
second from ttfe 220 ward dash record,
running it In 22 2r5. These men would
give any college athlete In tho West a
closet, race In their respective events.
Never has better team work In the
distance runs, or head work been ex
hibited on tho local fleldB.
Tho star point winner of tho day
was Jordan of Colorado, who took 13

Two comedies will be presented In

The first Is known as "The Silent Sys

Shakespeare Water Cure," wherein all
of the lines of Shakespeare creation
are interpreted in a now light. Tho
following is the key to the play:
"Staying at a water cure establish
ment are: Hamlet, for his health,
with his wife Ophelia; Macbeth and
Lady Macbeth, for economical reasons,
in need of the needful; Mrs. BasBanlo,
enjoying a legal vacation. The Mon
tagues having been disowned by both
their houses, Mr. R. M. has taken to
the stage, and is hero with hia travel
ing company and his wife. Shylock,
wishing to possess Portia's gold, bribes
Lady Macbeth to incite her husband
to tho murder of Bassanio, so that
Shylock may marry the fair heiress.
All of which is .accomplished, and a
wedding dinner, under the superin
tendence of Othello, is given by the
patients to tho happy bride and
"Admit mo chorus to this History."
Special attentions has been given to
the stage decorations.
