Nebraska had an easy time of it in
defeating Minnesota yesterday after
noon. During tho oarly part of the
day tho weather was threatening and
tho proBpocts of a good moot were
anything but bright. Toward noon,
however, tho sun came out and dried
the track up nlcoly so that when tho
moot started the conditions wero al
It was anticipated that the Corn-!
huskors would win tho moot but such
an overwhelming victory was .scarce
ly looked for. Out of tho fourteen
ovonts (tho uBual one-mile relay was
not run) Nebraska won twelve firsts
and eight seconds, while Minnesota
took two firsts and six seconds. The
final s'coro was: Nebraska 84, Minne
McDonald of Nebraska set two new

events. Ho cleared tho high sticks in

Four men won their "N's" yesterday
for the first time. WilliamB in tho
two-mile, tlmo 10:39; Mueller in tho
quarter, time 52 3-5; HamU In tho
high jump at 5 feet 6 inches; and
Patton by winning two seconds, in tho
shot put and the discus. This makes
thirteen men who have won their let

Minnesota's two firsts came in the
half-mile and tho polo vault Bush of
Minnesota won tho half-mile in
2:03 4-5. It was rather expected that
he would take this event, as his work
this year has boon first-class. Ho
won the only first place Minnesota got
In their meet against Iowa two weeks
ago. Strone of Minnesota also won
first place in the pole vault at tho
height of ten feet Although McMas
