Team Preparing, for Kansas This Week Freshmen to Meet the Wesleyan Team Saturday. The preliminary track meet which was hold at the Fair Grounds Inst Saturday was In many ways a very successful one. No new records were made and the time In the dashes was stow, but nevertheless Dr. Clapp 1b well satisfied with the results. In the dashes and hurdles the run ners had to faco a strong wind, which partly accounts for the slow time made in thoso ovents. In" the 100-yard dash two preliminary heats were run, the first four men in each heat qualifying for the final heat. Wildman won first place, but was hard pressed by HugheB and Reed. The finish of the two-mile run was one of the most exciting events or the day. Bauman set the pace from the start, but was closely followed by Williams for the entire distance. They sprinted the last quarter and both were about "all in" at the tape. Ban man won )y a few feet. The one-mile run- was also a very pretty race. Captain Alden and Davis fought hard for first place, Alden win ning out after a strong finish. Davis got revenge in the half-mile, however, 'by beating Alden five yards. The quarter was quite a surprise to everyone. George, who xis ineligible for the 'varsity, won with Mueller sec ond. Bentley, Perry and Burke, all of whom Tver rogarded. as Winners, fln- : Ished in the order named. Another try-out will probably be had in this evont before the Kansas meet. "A. p. Smith, last year's star -quarter-miler, may possibly get out this week. With him in the game again the qunr- - ter would be-in-saf-hands. Reed, a freshman, sprang quite a surprise by taking third In the 100 and second in the 220. He Will be captain of the freshman team, whlchJ meets the Wesleyan 'varsity team at "Wesloyannext Saturday. In the weights the work was rather disappointing. Tho Collins brothers have been doing good work all spring 1 and they were expectedHQ break some ' .records. , This may come later in the ' year, however.

M., A. M. Levy, G. Cowgill, Worthy P. Sterns, A. M. Nebraska, Ph.D. Chicago, Ray P. Tech, A. M.
