CREDIT TO TRACK MEN.
Thd track meet which wns hold alt
the University of Nebraska last Satur.
day, proves conclusively that Nebras
ka has a track team of which she may
well bo proud. Nobraskn has always
been strong In track athletics and by
defeating both Minnesota and Kansas
this year's team has proven that it Is
worthy of the university, and deserves
the hearty support of every student.
Tho defeat of Kansas last Saturday
was the first time this Beason that a
contest with Kansas has not resulted
in tho scarlet and cream coming out
with the small ond of the score. It was
tho first time this year that Nebraska's
representatives In any line of sport
have proved their superiority to tho
Kansas men. Smarting under a long
series of defeats by Kansus the vic
tory on Saturday" waB all tho more
gratifying to all who have tho lnler
csts of Nebraska at heart.
Tho Nebraska track team Is this
year laboring under peculiar difficul
ties for it has not the opportunity of
training on tho university campuB.
The athletps are compelled to go a
long way from the .university
every day and the Interest of the
Btudent body Is greatly decreased by
this fuct. In spite of all theso handi
caps the Nebraska track team has
made a brilliant success of the pres
ent season and all credit Is due to
Captain McDonald and his bund of
