IN A DUAL MEET
NEBRASKA AND MINNESOTA MEN
Cornhuskers Have an Even Chance to
Win Meets of Last Saturday
Cojnpafed Nebraska Team.
The Nebraska track team left last
night at 6:15 for Minnesota over the
Burlington. They took a special car
on the Northwestern at Omaha and
should have reached Minneapolis about
8 o'clock this -morning. The team ex
pects a hard meet with the Gophers,
but feel that they must and can win.
After the baseball vjctory day before
yesterday they feel doubly inspired
and every man will do the best work
today he has yet accomplished this
season. The following men made the
D. F. McDonald.
G. B. MacDonald.
Judging from the performances last
Saturday in the Minnesota-Iowa meet,
Nebraska should give Minnesota good
competition in every event, and In
some should almost certainly take
first. Chances Boem about even in the
sprints; In the distance runs the ad
vantage should' rather He with the
Cornhuskers. The hurdles are rather
uncertain events, but with a good
chance for Nebraska. The Cornhusk
ers should have things rather their
own way in the field events except in
the broad Jump and discus throw,
where chanoes seem about even. How
ever, it should be remembered that
the Iowa-Minnesota meet was held in
a snowstorm and that on this account
performances were much poorer than
they -would have been under favorable
weather,, and perhaps particularly in
those events where Nebraska flatters
herself on her superiority. It may be
expected' that Minnesota will surpass
in every event her performances of
last Saturday and in some Instances
may show surprising improvement. On
the other hand, the Ames-Nebraska
meet was also held on a very cold
day and the track was slow, so that
corresponding improvement may be
looked for on the part of the Nebraska
Three years ago Nebraska and Min
nesota met here, and the Cornhuskers
tfulled out a victory in .the most ex
citing track meet "ever seen in Lln
"coln. The final outcome was uncer
tain until the last event in which Ne
braska tool first and second, thus cap
turing the meet.
The team will leave Minneapolis Sat
urday night reach Omaha Sunday
morning, and get back to Lincoln some
time during the day.. Dr. Clapp accom
panied the team.

Leland Stanford Objects to Conference
The Leland Stanford track team,
which has been Invited to participate
in the annual conference meet, to bo
held in Chicago on June 1, has de
clined the offer.
Tho following from the Dally Palo
Alto explains the reasons for Stan
ford's rofubal to compote, and Bhows
what tho westerners think of tho con
"Tho Cardinal men Will be unable to
compote, as a large number of strict
rules govern tho conference meet, and
Stanford would bo barred by several
"Tho Invitation came as a completo
Burprlse to those Interested In Stan
ford athletics. Michigan, the usual
winner, will not compote this year,
and thus the meet will be robbed of
much Interest. It Is believed that tho
Cardinal was asked to take part in an
endeavor to revive the enthusiasm in
the conference sports. The invitation'
was also extended to the University
"Stanford could not possibly com
pete under the rules as they now exist.
In the first place, the freshmen would
be excluded, and then the Cardinal
athletes would be forced to abolish
their training table if they took part
in the conference meet A great many
of the regulations would affect Stan
ford In one way or another."
The University of CalIfornIabas also
turned down the invitation to com
pete in the -meet.
The Law baseball team was defeated
by the Cotner nine Thursday after
noon by the score of 13 to 0.
