The University track team leaves today at ono o'clock for Kansas City, where they enter tomorrow In tho first annual athletic meet of tho Mis souri Valley Conference. There are at present seven schools In tho conference, Nebraska, Iowa, 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 close one. 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 hurdles. In the other events, too, Nebraska is well represented and with consistent work the team should make a credit able showing. Those who are to go on tho trip are: Dr. R. G. Clapp, Captain Alden, Wildman, Huglxes, Burke, Muller, Davis, Bauman, Williams, McDonald, Rathbone, McMasters, Collins, Perry, Knode, and Chain. Negative. 1. H. F. Wunder, 'Q9, Shelby, la. 8.
