On Tuesday, OctdboV 18, a mooting
of all mon interested' in track work
wlll-bo held in the gymnasium. The
A. large attendance Is desired. - "
Ono of tho strongest arguments in
favor of a fall, meet is that it Induces
tho men to start training early. Few
who go in for training 'for the fall
moot glverup their work, so that when
spring comer they are in much better
condition than they would otherwise
On tho whole,, Nebraska has an ex
cellent outlook for a strong track team'

fifteen or twenty men have trained
