The annual Olympics, which take
the place of the old-time class scrap
between the sophomores and freshmen,
are to be pulled off on Nebraska field
next Saturday morning.
Tho events will be practically the
same as last year, consisting of three
wrestling bouts, light, middle, and
heavy-weight; three boxing matches,
light, middle, and heavy-weight; a
Marathon race; tug-of-war; and tho
free-for-all. All these events, with the
nvmntlnn of the Marathon, will be
hold at Nebraska field. The Mara
thon runners will start at the campus,
going out to the fair grounds, then
after circling the track once they will
finish at Nebraska field, making the
course three and a half miles in all.
Change in Free-for-AII.
There will be a Blight change in the
grand finale of this year in which all
the members of the classes are to par
ticipate. Last year tho two classes
lined up on opposite sides, facing each
other, tho object of each side being to
pull their opponents across their own
goal line. The result was that each
side was fearful of leaving its line and
rim .nntPRt wns rather tame. This
year, however, the object will be to
push the opposing aide back across
their own line. Tho lines will bp
thirty feet part and at a given signal
both sides will rush In and endeavor
to carry their opponents back across
their own line. This ought to make a
much scrappier and more earnest con
test. As soon ns a man Is pushed
over his line, if he is free, ho is judged
out of the game. The side winning
the best two out of three attempts
-wins this contest.
As tho free-for-all counts thirty-five
points, it goes without saying that
both sophomores and freshmen will
work hard to win this event. It was
only by winning tho free-for-all last
year that the then sophomores were
able to win out. There is some .criti
cism in regard to letting this contest
. count so heavily In the final score.
Both Sides Working Hard.
Both sophomores and freshmen are
working hard to got all tho members
. of the classes out. The freshmen held
a mass meeting In thp chapel Tuesday
evening, in which plans were discussed
" for getting more spirit aroused. Dr.
Condra and others addressed the gath
ering. The sophomores held a meeting o
a smaller scale tho same evening in
U106, in which plans wjre discussed.
A big sophomore mass meeting and
, rally is to be held in tho Temple the
ater this morning at 11:30. Efforts
will be made to arouse such enthuslr
asm that not a member of the class
will bo absent f ronf the field Saturday

New Scoring System,'
Previous" to" this' year the members
of the cross-country team woro chosen
by one preliminary, but this year, to
give all tho men a fair show, a now
system was worked out by tho coach,
Dr. Clapp. This system scores bv
points. The points aro counted on tho
order that tho mon come in at tho fin
ish and the time tha't they make. Tho
flrBt man. in gets a thousand points
for his place and his tlmo points are
decreased by six for every minute that
he is over twenty-five. Tho total of
these points are taken and! divided by
two and thenvtho points ho has from
each preliminary-are averaged to de
termine his rank. '
