NEBRASKA 18 THIRD .
IN THE VALLEY MEET
"LUCK THROWS FIRST TO
TRACK TEAM STAR AGAIN
McGowan Breaks the Conference
Record by Pour Seconds
Hard Luck Roosts on Ne
Nebraska won third place in
the Missouri Valley conference
"meet laBt Saturday, being a half
point behind Missouri, which was
second. Kansas won first place.
All the luck brqke her way, and
it upset all calculations of the
dppesters, who conceded a prob
able victory to Nebraska, as the
XJornliuskers had already defeat
ed Kansas ih their meet. The,
meet was exciting and the three
Universities who scored the most
points were neck and neck all
through the contests. ' The
weather was warm, but there was
a strong wind blowing. Seven
new records were, set in spite of
thiH. Fully 5,000 people wit
nessed the events, the Drake sta
dium at Des Moines being filled
to its capacity. The final score
was: Kansas, 31; Missouri, 22;
Nebraska again demonstrated
that she has the best relay team
in the west when Ankeny, Davis,
Burke and Reed won their race
easily. McGowan was another
Nebraska star, winning first in
t;he half-mile against a strong
wind .and breaking the conference
Record four seconds. He received
a gold watch, which was givqn
each first, and a gold medal. This
also gave him his "N." The
ljelay team won the silver cup.
Tlie men Nebraska counted on the
lpost failed to score. Graham,
the best pole vaulter in the val
ley, was stopped at 10 feet, a
strong gust of wind spoiling his
three trials. Munson failed tp
touch the board in his three
trials at the broad jump and
failed to qualify.
Shock tied for third in the,
pole vault, scoring one-half point.
Shonka put the shot 40 feet 5
inches, a new university record,
but wob only second in the meet.
Reed got third in the 100 yards,
and second intho 440. In the
latter rage he drew the outside
track .and the other seven men
blocked him so completely he had
little chance of winning. How
ever, he ran a remarkable race
and was easily secQnd. Burke
was third in the 440. Clark won
second in the mile. It was, a
very close race and the winper
lowered the record several .sec
onds. Melik was third in the
two-mile. Steele of Missouri, the
winner, ran a sensational race
and mnele the fastest time pypr.
made west of the Mississippi .river
with the exception of Anderson's
race at the indoor meet in Om
aha Jast fall. Anderson was un:
able to be in the mept "because
of injuries. u

"Thank heaven, the table's

"You will." "Boo-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo!"
. Such was the character of the
discussion very evident at the an
nual junior class special program,
given in place of tho regular con
vocation exercises in Temple the
ater. The program, in all, con
sisted' of a production of "Ob

edy by Annie Peacock. Without
out doubt the play this morning
compared favorably , with many
of the past junior eiiterbiinmcnth
and in humor excepdqd most of
them. The. plot, although simple,
was very ludicrous. The play is

Enter Robert and Grace, both

The publication of trid junior arid

previous publications. The ' an- -

which are in turn divided irito
