where they enter tomorrow In tho
first annual athletic meet of tho Mis
souri Valley Conference.
There are at present seven schools

Kansas, AmeB, Drake, Missouri and
Washington. Judging from the rec
ords the teams from somo of theso In
stitutions have made this year tho
fight for the championship will be a
According to the dope, the chances
for first place lie between throe
teams, Missouri, Ames, and Nebras
ka. If the Comhuskers can do as well
or a little better than thoy havo done
no far this year, their chances of vlc-
I tory are bright. In tho weights Col
lins ought to be able to got first place
In the hammer. His work In this event
has been very consistent and his rec
ords In practice look encouraging. In
the discus ho ouglit to got at least
third place. There are two men In tho
conference who havo beaten Collins'
mark thlB year In the discus throw, so
third place Is perhaps all that can be
hoped, for In this event.
Perhaps the strongest event the
Cornhuskers have Is tho mllo.Cap
tain Alden has run It In 4:37 already
this year and he thinks that the man
wlio beats him tomorrow will have
to run In 4:30 or under.
Knode, In the high Jump, and Perry
In the broad jump, are regarded as
sure point winners, while McDonald Is
expected to win something In the low
In the other events, too, Nebraska
is well represented and with consistent
work the team should make a credit

are: Dr. R. G. Clapp, Captain Alden,
Wildman, Huglxes, Burke, Muller,
Davis, Bauman, Williams, McDonald,
Rathbone, McMasters, Collins, Perry,
