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.

Commissioner of Corporations to Meet
Students Today.
Hon. Herbert Knox Smith, Commis
sioner of Corporations in the Depart
ment of. Commerce and Labor, Wash
ington, D. C, will be in Lincoln today
to meet certain students of the State
University who had applied for posi
tions as inspectors of timber and sim
ilar work. The Department of Com
merce and Labor seems to be rather
rigorous In the rejection of those who
have not studied economics, to judge
from the experience of one of our
graduates. On the other hand, thoso
who have had a full course In eco
nomics nre gladly appointed to such
positions, as witness the activity In
that department of Messrs. W. B.
Hunter, A. M., C. Bowlby, A. M., A. M.
Levy, G. Cowgill, Worthy P. Sterns,
A. M. Nebraska, Ph.D. Chicago, Ray
P. Tech, A. M.
It would bo worth while for such old
students of economics as have not ap
plied or passed their civil service ex
amination, but would like an appoint
ment, to seek an interview with the
commissioner through the Department
of Political Economy.
