Nebraska Wins Close and Exciting
Track Meet Morgan and Alden
Break Two Records.
Twice in one week the Cornhuskers
have triumphed over their big north
ern rival, Minnesota. On Thursday
Nebraska's baseball men vanquished
them by the score of 8-7, and Satur
day the track team continued the gal
lant work, winning a dual meet from
them hy the score of 54 to 44.
The track meet was hotly contested,
and had it not been for Nebraska grit
the Gophers would doubtlesB have
won. Minnesota took a big lead at
the first, the score being at one time
17 to 4 in her favor. The fine work
of the distance men was largely re
sponsible for overcoming this lead and
this, combined with the uniform good
work of the team as a whole, pulled
out the meet for Nebraska.
The day was cold and a brisk
breeze was blowing straight against
the sprinters and hurdlers, which
naturally slowed the time In these
events. The attendance was very
light, there being scarcely a hundred
spectators In the grand stand. Lack
of enthusiasm was very evident and
was quite surprising, considering the
splendid facilities Minnesota has for
track nthletics. The track -was in
splendid condition and the men of the
team agree that it Is the best track
they over "touched."
Minnesota started by taking first in
the high hurdles, first and second, in
the discus, and first in the hundred
yards.' At this juncture things looked
rather black for Nebraska, but the
hopeB of the Cornhuskers were much
revived by the fine work of their men
in the half-mile, Benedict, Morgan and
Thlesen finishing in the order named
and winning without being compelled
to exert themselves to their utmost.
In the1 mean time, Mr. Martin and
"Mr. MacDonald had beaten out their
Minnesota opponent in the pole vault,
thus securing seven more points for
Nebraska: Weller had won the shot
put and taken second in the hammer
throw, thus holding the Gophers even
in those 'events. In the quarter-mile
Benedict, aljtho ho had Just won the
half, took second by a plucky sprint
Knode and Burruss added six points
in the hfgh jump and things were al
most even again.
But Nebraska had not yet played
her best cards. Morgan won the mile
in rectfrd-breaking time, and Davis
shut Minnesota out of a second. Perry
won first in the running broad with a
pretty jump of practically 21 feet, and
Alden broke another record in the
two-mile- run, Bauman taking 'second
In the pjucklest kind of a way. He
ran practically half the race on his
nerve and had to be carried off the
field. Besides this, Burruss gave
Dougherty a pretty race In the two
twenty and scored Cw'o points more for
Nebraska, while McDonald lost out In
the 220-yard hurdles thru a piece of

ing glee club entertainment ever given

mense audience and it was well de

during the summer session of 1907.
In each course a full semester's work
will be given, two recitations being
devoted to each subject dally. 'Many
pupils who find that their courses are
somewhat irregular, may by availing
themselves of this opportunity arrange
their work In a more satisfactory man
ner. Pupils in small high schools,
where the laboratory equipment is de
fective, may thus enjoy superior train
ing In the sciences duirng the summer.
As a rule pupils will be limited to
one course. Only exceptional students
who are especially recommended by
their former teachers or their princi
pal will be permitted to take two
courses. The fee for each course will
be six dollars, except In the sciences,
In which a laboratory fee of three dol
