History of Cross-Country.
Somo fifteen years ago tho Eastern
Intercollegiate Cross-County Associa
tion was formed by a few of Che lead
ing eastern universities and an annual
run has been conducted ever slnco, but
tho movement has not extended to tho
smaller colleges to any extent and,
even In the old association the number
of institutions competing rarely ex
ceeds half a dozen. -
In tho fall of 1004 Chicago Univer
sity extended an invitation to a num
ber of tho western universities to Bond
teams to Chicago to compete In a five
milo cross-country race. Several of
the largo Institutions agreed to. tako
part in this contest, but for various
reasons were unable to do so, and Ne
braska was the only visiting university
to send a team to the starting mark.
Tho race was won by Nebraska by a
After tho contest representatives of
a number of tho "Big Nine" Institu
tions and Nebraska formed a perma
nent organization known as tho West
ern Intercollegiate CroBs-Country As
sociation. In 1005 four teamB took
part In the annual race, which waB
won by Chicago. The team scores
were as follows: Chicago, 40; Nebras
ka, 50; Wisconsin, 54; Illinois, 57. The
following year Nebraska had but t,wo
opponents .in the annual race and de
feated Wisconsin and Chicago by a
scoro of 28 points against 45 and 40
by Wisconsin and Chicago respective
ly. Tho same' teams competed again
in 1007 and finished in the samo'order.
Tho points scored were 28, 35 and 57
respectively. Purdue and Drako Uni
versities, as well as Chicago, Wiscon
sin and Nebraska, competed In the
season of 1008 and for tne third suc
cessive time Nebraska won first place,
with Purdue a fairly closo second.

A moro ideal courso could not bo im
agined than that in Jackson park, Chi
cago, which has now becomo, by proco
dent nlono, tho annual scono of tho
groatost contoBt of onduranco and
training in wostern collego athlotics.
Let us hopo that no Bolflsh offort will
be mado by competing toams to ro
movo tho contest from this Ideal loca
tion. Nebraska's 1900 Team.
At the oponlng of tho university in
Septombcr tho proepocts for anothor
winning cross-country team appeared
very bright. Pour of tho victorious
1008 flvo wero oligiblo to compete and
also a strong squad from last year's
freshman class. Accidents, sickness,
and othor causos, howovor, played
havoc with tho mon to whom tho
coach looked for his best material.
Captain Gablo was unoxpoctcdly de
tained, by business mattors, from reg
istering in tho university early in tho
somestor; ox-Captain Bnuman. of tho
1008 team strained tho ligaments and
tendons of his right foot bo sorlously
that ho was unablo to tako part in
tho tryouts. For somo unknown rea
sons E. D. Trump, the third oligiblo
veteran, was unablo to get back to his
previous form and failed to qualify in
tho tryouts, thus leaving A. B, Amber
son the only veteran ablo to compoto
n this season's team. W. I. McQow'an,
tho most promising sophomore candi
date was obliged to givo up his train
ing early in the season owing to sick
ness, and O. C. Flack, another promis
ing sophomore, was indisposed and,
unablo to qualify. Notwithstanding
this long list of misfortunes tho team
which represented us at Chicago on
November 20th, was considerably
stronger than laBt year's team and the
best balanced team that Nebraska haB
over sent to a cross-country contest.
Every member of the team has worked
long and faithfully. No matter what
the result of the raco, tho student
body should feel proud of its represen
tatives and may rest assured that thoy
feel their responsibility and that the
team which lowered the Nebraska col
ors was decidedly superior in ability
to the Cornhusker flvo.
