The University of Nebraska track
team will leave this afternoon for
.Ames, la., where It will meet the Iowa
agricultural college track team on Sat
urday afternoon. As yet no arrange
ments have been definitely made to
give tho team one of the characteris
tic Nebraska "send-offs," although
there is some .probability that an ex
temporaneous one will bo framed up.
Chances Are Sllm.j
Tho chances for Nebraska at Ames
are. anything but "good. At no time of
tho yeaMias tho Varsity team- been In
such poor form to engage In a confer
ence meet. Although tho try-outs
. went off -as? a great demonstration of
-4aeJLJUl track ability, the result of
this meet has seriously handicapped"
the team lor the Saturday meet Many
of the men are almost unable to par
ticipate. Power, for the hurdles, has been suf
fering from a bad leg for some time,
Munson Is complaining with tho same
handicap, and Reed, Gibson and Black
are crippled up worse than at any
previous time of tho season. Lind
strum, since the try-outs, seems to
have lost his excellent form for the
jolo vaults and undoubtedly will not
make the showing which he has in
previous Indoor and outdoor events.
Ames Is Picked.
Ames Is reported to havp one of the
best track teams In tho conference.
In addition to this, Nebraska has never
defeated Ames in track mqots on the
Ames grounds. Last year Ames indls
putedly had one o tho best teams In
the Missouri valley and one which
made a correspondingly good record.
Nebarska will meet Kansas next on
tho Nebraska field. This is tho only
conference meet on tho series that
will bo held on the Cornhuskor
grounds. Tho "dope" on the Kansas
game Is, however, much more favor
able. . Kansas, In track events, has
onlv tasted Nhhrnnlrn. hnonn nncn In

THIRTEEN BANDITS ROB NEBRASKAN OFFICE
With a wild hurrah and a blood
curdling yell tho Dally Nobraskan staff
was scared out of its only evon
senses and veritably bolloved that its
doom had come. Whether robbery or
murder, the scared reporters know not
what was going to happen. Thoro was
no Joko about It it was a hold-up and
tno Nebraskan office proved a victim.
Thoro were thirteen and they repre
sented tho Black Masque pledges who
had escaped initiation. They hold a
picnic at tho asylunj and enjoyed a
Beven-courso dinner. But Just as tho
big feed was over the Black Masque
automobile rolled Into sight. Tho, In
tended victims secreted themselves In
tho womon!s ward of tho state Institu
tion'. After a vain search tho owners
of tho automobile returned to find it
loaded with pickle bottles and tho rom
nnnts df tho picnic lunch. But tho
bjrds had flown.
The trip to tho city which was not
by foot was nn eventful one and drug
stores were lavish In tnelr gifts of per
fume and mewing gum. At tho post
ofllco they were entertained by- a
"Dutch band," which tried in vain to
drown tho laughter of tho girls. Tho
next place was tho Nebraskan office,
In which three humble reporters and
tho business manager wero at their
nightly grind. Tho business manager
was alive to tho situation and averted
what might have proved a catastrophe.
He seized tho remaining two dollars in
tho till aqd dived undor his desk,
where ho was found this morning at
6:01 o'clock by the Janitor. It 1b right
to say the office was robbed, for
whothor through fright or kidnaping
tho three reporters have not been
seen since, although diligent search
has been made.
Tho library was not exempt and ono
might think that o,n earthquake had
struck It by tho way some craned and
rubbered while others hid under tho
tables ns tho mighty Black Masque
yoll shattered tho air.
In 'tho meantime a delicious bIx-'
course dinner was spoiling at tho res
idence of Miss Ensign. All efforts on
tho part of tho Black Masque to locate
the thirteen other junior girls proved
unavailing. Tho dinner was not a
good enough bait. Tho sovon-courso
dinner at tho asylum had been suf
ficient, combined with tho chewing
gum and perfume, to allay their hun
ger. However, at a late hour tho thir
teen bandits gavo themselves up for
