8even Now Records Made -Falrbury
Wins Championship Large
The Nebraska Inter-scholastlc Ath-lotio-Association
meet which was hold
yesterday at the State Fair grounds
was by far the moat successful one of
its 'kind ever held here. The atten
dance was greater, the list of entries
was larger, and the number of records
broken, was greater than ever before
Falrbury walked off with the cham
pionship, followed at a respectful dis
tance by Lincoln and Hastings. This
was more or less anticipated by many,
since the Falrbury team recently won
easily the championship of southeast
ern Nebraska. Collier, of Falrbury,
was the "bright particular star" of the
day, winning tout first peaces (20
points) for Wb team and incidentally
breaking three interrBcholastlc records.
If the future meets are as successful
as this one It willjiot be a great while
until the University will have suf
cient track material to develop a team
of world-beaters. All tlmt-will be
needed thdn will be a well-equipped
athletic field uponwhich to train
them. May the Regents hasten this

Unusually Large Sale for First Day
Demand Exceeds 8upply.
Yesterday morning at nine o'clock
the second annual Cornhusker was
placed on sale on the campus in front
or the Administration Bulldlngr
Tables were arranged beforehand
with letters to designate where each
person should apply for his copy.
Long before the dray arrived with the
first consignment, a largo crowd had
assombled and were Impatiently wait
ing In line. After securing a book,
nearly everyone found a bench or a
grassy spot on the campus where they
lingered till they had looked the book
through. Nothing but words of praise
came from the purchasers. The fro
quent sounds of laughter that came
from the various circles of students
certainly Indicated that the Cornhusk
er was "all the stuff." It is expected
that a picture of the campus at the
hour of distribution of books will ap
pear In the Cornhusker next year.
Before ten o'clock over four hun
dred copies were sold and Jorgensen
had to telephone to the printing com
pany to bring up two hundred more.
These wore also rapidly disposed of
and many who had ordered wore
turned away. It was noticed that a
large number had to pay $2.25 be
cause they had not ordered before the
day of publication. Today two or
three hundred more will be on sale

Lincoln had expected to have a rep
resentative, but he was not allowed
to compote. Miss Oldham was the 'sub'
stitute for Mr. John Freeman in the
western district.
The question was: "Resolved, That
the Federal Government Should Own
and Operate the Railroad Systems of
the Country."
Miss Oldham argued that tho rail
roads should be taken over by the
government because (1) It was prac.-'
ticable, (2) would rqL restultMn In
creased taxes, and 3) would mean
increased efficiency.
Mr." Mayor of Albion, for tho nega
tive offered government control as a
remedy for tho present evils, Public
ownership, he said, was a atop to
ward socialism.
Mr. Anderson showed that transnor-
tatlon is essentially a public funcUon.
He said that private ownership meant
private gain, and government owner
ship, lncrensed efficiency at less cost.
Mr. Chambers said that govern
ment ownership meant graft In the
securing of positions and he pointed
to the post offlcge department aa ine
fficient. He believed government ownership
to be financially impossible. 'Mr. Har
greave8 on the affirmative, produced a
chart showing that rates were lower
in foreign countries under government
ownership. He gave examples of for
elgn countries In which government
ownership was successful.
