Reports from Lawrence convoys news to tho offect that tho southern athletes aro In oven NEBRASKA TRACK MEN WHO WILL MEET KANSAS TOMORROW bettor physical condition than they wero when they defeated Missouri In last Saturday's meet. Tho students at Lawrence, so the report runs, aro con fident their team will win the con test from tho Cornhuskers by a very small margin. A rally of the Nebraska students will be held in Memorial hall thte af ternoon at 5 o'clock. Several good speakers and tho cadet band will bo on hand to furnish entertainment for the big crowd that Is aiUldpated. Kansas StrongerTCtiyy. With Perry out of form, Nebraska stands 'to lose the broad jump. Kansas, in Martlndell, this season, has a star broad jumper, Already this spring ho has broken tho Kansas unlvorslty rec ord by doing 21 feet, 8 inches. Perry last year established a new Nebraska mak by going 22 feet, 2 3-4 Inches. This spring the Comhusker has been Bick, however, and will hardly be In good enough form to boat Martlndell, Present indications are that Nebras? ka will win first in both the high Jump and tho polo vault. rTho fight for first honors In the high jump will be closb with Hamel and Hummoll doing the beBt work for Nebraska and with Smith leading for Kansas.- -Just now Smith of tho Jay hawkers has thobe'stof the .dope, for he has done 5 feet 6 inches this spring, which Is a few Inches higher than plther, Hamel or Humraell has gone. i r t , t ,- w ingBldo with tho bar Haling at 6 feot 6 InchoB. In prnctico and in tho ihi door meets tho past wintor, Hamol wont 5 feot 8 Inches. In a closo con tost with tho Jayhawkers ho should go this high again. Fight m Weights. In tho weights Nebraska Is going to havo no such an easy tlmo winning as somo of tho dopestors hnvo be'on pro. dieting. S. ColllnB, tho lending Corn hUBker in nil three wolght oVenta, is llkoly to moot defeat in tho dlBctis throw In competition with Jayhawkor Winter. The beBt tho Nobrasknn hnn dono thla yoar was a throw of 109 foot, 11 1-2 Inches, mado at Morning side. Wintor on tho other hand, broke tho Kansas record by tossing tho plato 114 feet, 9 Inches In tho Manhattan games. Collins last soason sot a now mark of 115 foet 6 Inches In the Kan sas meet. Should ho attain tho samo form ho had thon ho ought to win from Wintor hero, but It is doubtful whoth or he will bo In Bhapo to hurl tho dis cus more than 110 feet. Tho hammor throw will fall to Col lins. ,Ho is probably tho best man in the valloy with this wolght and al- ready this spring has smashed tho CornhuBker record with a throw of 1G1 feet 7 inches. In tho Mornlngsido moot he made a mark of but 125 feot, 8 inches, this being tho samo distance that Myers of Kansas put the weight In the meet'agalnst tho Kansas AggloB. At Mornlngsido Collins wns not pushed very 'hard, or olso ho would havo sent the hammer several feot further. Contest for 8hot Put. Collins and Stevenson, of Kansas, will bo the chief contenders in the Bhot put which will probably bo one ot tho best ovents of tho meet. The Jayhawkers havo the best marlc for the present season having pushed the'ahot 35 feot, 10 inches In the Aggie meet, while tho best Collins has done was 35 feot 7 inches, the distance ho made at lornlngsfde. Stevenson is not capable of doing much better than his best put of the Agglo games. Col. Una, though, should bo able to go nearly 40 feet closely crowded, a fact which gives him an edge of the dope for the cOriilng meeU Chaloupka, who took' second place inline shot-put at Mornlngsido forv Nebraska, will prob ably be the third winner in the event here.
