cssary to take the mpst stringpnt

Men Doped to Win Points.
Tho Nebraska track team vill
leave at 1 o'clock this afternoon
for Kansas City and Ivill go to
Lawrenco tomorrow, when tho
annual Kansas-Nebraska track
meet, will btf held: Last year the
Cornhuskers won by one point,
and while the team is composed
almost entirely of new men this
year, the meet is expected to be
i very closely contested one.
McGowan," the eraok half
milor, will not accompany the
team. Ho hns been ordered by
his doctor to" refrain from indulg
ing in all forms of athlotics on
account of a weak heart. Mc
Oo wnii has been making bettor
lime in the half-milo than nnv
other candidate, and his absence
will greatly weaken the team.
The men who will be taken on
llm trip are: Captain Burke,
Heed. Amberson, Davis. Ankeny,
I?icc, Clark. Milek,' - Anderson,
Rhouka, Gibson, Graham, Mun
Hoii, Planing, Flack. Powers and
Coach Cherringlon. Reed, Burke
and Amberson are the only 'N"
men on the squad.
Entries in Events.
- A list of the men. who will be
entered in the different events
follows :
100-yard dash Kodd, Ankeny;
2'20-yard dashHoed', Burke ; 440

Fleming. Gibson; high jump
Gra ham, Vinson; broad jump
Mnnson, Davis; pole vault Gra

Ankeny and Powers,
' Competition in Dashes. '
The dashes will be very close
ly contested races. Haddock and
Roberta of Kansas and Tteed of
Nebraska aro among the fastest
sprinters iin the west. The rec
ords of all three-men are about
the same and tta result of these
ra,ces is very much in doubt. ''
Captain Burke js oxpeetcd to
win the 440-yard dash with ease,
and it is thought that? Graham
will win thc'pole vault. Graham
i also doped to win second place
in the high jump. The Kansas
jumper goes over six feet and
will easily win the Missouri Val
ley championship.
Amberson and Rice, the Ne
braska entries in the half-mile,
are neilher in good condition, but
they will give the Kansas man a
good race. Anderson, also,r isv in
poor condition. lie will run a
gritty race, however, anc may
win tho mile. Clark antf Milek
are both in good shape and have
excellent chances to win.
'The Kansas hurdlers are an un
known q.iamity, but tho Nebras
ka men have been traininir luiwl
and thd.itrh inexperienced hiivtf
neon tio'iig good work iiiprac
lice. The -result of the' broad
jump is Mho in doubt. Davis
and Munsn.i are expected to show
up well in this'ovent.
The CorjUiusker weight" inen
are r.ll inexporioneod, but may
springsome surprises. The re
lay' teams are evenly matched.
'ami IVitt time should be inndn
this year.
Next Saturday the Cornhusk
ers meet the Minnesota track
team on tho new athletic field.
Minnesota has i stronger team
this year than she has ever had
before, and is doped to win. How
ever, Nebraska has never been
defeated by Minnesota on tho
fiM"k and this year's teamis de
termined that the record shall
be kept intact.

Would Havo Girls Sign Stato
mont on Pledgo Taper Fao
ulty to Tako No Action
Until Aftor Tuosday.
Tho girls of tho Univorsity of
Nebraska are planning an honor
system to becomo efl'ectlvo in tho
near future. A mooting of all of
tho university girls is to bo hold
next Tuesday at 11 o'clock in
Dr. Shermans' rooms in Library
Hall, at which time it is desired
to mako definite arrangements. It
is expected that practically all
of tho ladies' organizations' of
the university will bo represent
ed by delebates, but all those
who belong to no organization
are just as much invited.
It is desired to make the honor
system poetically universal
among tho women of hc univor
sity. That is why a general at
tendance at tho Tuesday meeting
is necessary. All of tho sorori
ties arc to be represented, tho
Efiual Suffrage Club has appos
ed delegates and othor similar or
ganizations have dnno likewise.
Present Plan.
The present plan is the pledge
paper system, tho signing of a
stuli inent on an examination pa
ier t 11 effect that no help' has
i'.'en received from anv sourcf
However, if any other plans prove
more popular thoy will bo adopt
ed. It is hoped that tho girls
will come to the mass meeting
prepared to express their opinion
and offer any new scheme thoy
may have in writing.
' The faculty knows of the plan,
but is wot likely to tako any ac
tion neither favoring it or dis
countenancing it until some defi
nite action is takon. It is said
that the chancollor will sanction
any movement that is satisfac
tory to the students. It is a
matter of prido to the- univor
sity that such movements arc be
ing instituted without suggestion
from the faculty.' Tho move
ment has already been starred
rionc- the fraternities,' and the
law school is now said to be fig
uring on taking it up.
