ANNUAU TRACK MEET WITH THE
QOPHER8 AT FAIR GROUNDS.
Nebraska Doped to Win First Class
Meet Assured if the Weather
Minnesota ys Nebraska
FRIDAY JtAY 29TH.
The annual track meet between
Minnesota and Nebraska Is scheduled
to take place at the Fair Grounds
this afternoon at two-thirty o'clock.
For the past week the weather has
been the worst possible for track work
and it was not known until the last
moment whether or not Minnesota
'Would send a team.
It was demonstrated at Kansas City
last week that the Cornhuskers were
not a team of mud horses and it was
felt that if wet weather prevailed the
meet might, as. well be postponed.
Yesterday noon Manager Eager tele
graphed Dr. Williams, the Minnesota
coach, that the weather was threaten
ing and asked if he desired the meet
, to be postponed. . No reply waB re
ceived until late in the evening, when
word came that the team was on its
way to Lincoln. All that remains to
be done now is to pray for good
The track at the Fair Grounds Was
drying up' fast under the influence of
yesterday's sun and Dr. Clapp predicts
that with good weather today the
track will be in first rate condition by
the time the meet begins. Both street
car lines will run cars to the grounds
and a large attendance is expected.
The Nebraska team haB had little
opportunity to Improve its condition
this last week, but with the exception
of Bauniair and Hughes, the men are
in very good condition. These men
are both suffering from strained ten
dons and neither one is expected to do
very much in the meet.
Little can be learned of the condi
tion of the Minnesota team. Iowa de
feated the Gophers decisively two
weeks ago,but owing to the climate
the Minnesota athletes are unable to
get In the best of shape as early in the
season as the teams farther south.
Consequently .too much significance is
not placed on the outcome of that
meet and the Gophers are expected
to give a good account of themselves

men for this afternoon, but no moro
than 'three may start ' in any one

doubles and Young and Slaughter will
each play one in singles. The team
