.pus at Eleventh and R streets at 8:30

university, tho team and everything In

Tho special train to Kansas for the
students will leave Friday, but tho

The annual try-out for tho Univer
sity of Nebraska cross-country team
will be held this evening at 4 o'clock.
This is an ovent which is being looked
forward to with great interest by ath
letes of the' school, in view of the fact
that success of Nebraska at .the big
midwest intercollegiate track moot at
MadiBon, Wis., is almost directly de;
pendent upon tho cross-country repre
sentatives. There will be at least fifteen partici
pants In the try-out tonight. This Is
not an exceptionally large number, but
It Is generally thought by the manag
ers that the very best material will be

MI8SOURI WANTS A SONG,

A prize competition for a state song

ners out of the event.
Course Is Complicated.
Tho course outlined for the runners
is somewhat complicated to follow and
covers a total distance of four and
nine-tenths miles. Tho striking fea
ture of tho race tonight is that the
athletic flold will "be the opening and
closing sceno of ttho event. At the
sound of the pistol the contestants
will circle the athletic field one and a
half times, and then start out on T
street. At the close of the raco the
runners must again circle ,twq and
one-half laps on 'the field'. This start
ing and closing feature of the' try-out
promises to be exciting, and will af
ford an opportunity for tho students
to watch the best part of the race. Ac
cording to "dope" on the final results,
there will be a number of goal seekers
on the last lap at the same time.
Course in Detail.
The course of tho raco in detail is
as follows: After the first lap on the
athletic field, tho runners go eaBt on.
T to Twelfth, north on Twelfth to "U,
east on U to Thirteenth, north to Y,
east to Four teen th,nnd out Fourteenth
for a mile and a half, then west to
Ninth, .south on Ninth to Y, east on Y
to Tenth, over viaduct on Tenth and
south to T. The home stretch Includes

Predictions being made do not vary
to a great degreo on tho first three
placeB, but after that thoro is a good
deal of uncertainty. Tho supposition
that Mollck, Anderson and Yzlcar will
return to tho varsity has grown to bo
almost a foregono conclusion. These
men wore nil on tho varsity team last
year and, thus far, hnve shown every
Indication that they will return. Tho
roturn of these men to tho university
hnB undoubtedly strengthened tho
chances of 'Nebraska at Madison, for
experience is a good fuctor in. deter
mining tlfo winners. Other contest
ants who appear to bo highly prospec
tive honor takers aro SwanBon, Hayes,
Bates and Wohlenbcrg. These men
havo all manifested varsity qualities
and any two of them will fill the ex
pected vacancies in groat shape.

Nebraska has won first honors four
times nnd second honors twice'' Con
sequently the team will not depart

No Need for Worry.
As far as tho Cornhuskers being in
poor condition is concerned, thcro is
no need for worry. Soldom has Ne
braska seen a better football eleven,
and if KansaB winB noxt Saturday It
will bo because' of their superiority
rather than of any weakness on the
part of the locals.
Taking reports from Lawrence at
more or less of a discountabout the
way they take reports received from
Lincoln Kansas also appears to bein
the game with one of the strongest
teams they have had for years. True,
they were, held to a 6 to 0 score by ,
Drake university, but Doane managed
to secure tho same kind of a grip or
the Cornhuskors, so neither game can
be taken: "ns a basis' for prediction on
what the Nebraska and Kansas teams
really amount to.

Will Be a Warm Scrap.
That the Kansans .will have the
warmest scrap of the season on their
hartds is a certainty. The Jayhawkers
have a h'unch that such will be the
case, as evidenced by the ''We Must
Beat Nebraska" agitation, while the
Cornhuskers are going to Lawrence
with a determination1 to win or win.
