WE MUST BEAT KANSAS AGAIN

Outcome Doubtful With Star Aggrega-

ers Have a Chance.
In the only Missouri Valley confer
ence (rack meet to be held on the Ne
braska athletic field this year. Ne
braska will oppose Kansas next Sat
urday lor the annual Intercollegiate
dual track meet honors. This Is a
meet which is usually anticipated to
be. and probably is, the most exciting
of all the conference events, due some
what to the intense but friendly rivalry
which exists between the two Institu
tions from the tirtfp the pig-skin holds
the gridiron till the Lnwford ceases
"WE MUST BEAT KANSAS." The
snme slognn which captured the bacon
at Lawrence last fall must prevail
through the Saturday meet. It may be
expected that the Jayhawkers will
send worthy representatives. Although
heretofore Nebraska has had a little
success, the "dope" dees not have that
character this year. Kansas has many
first-class runners and fields-men, ex
cluding a few Missouri Valley stars.
Woodbury is a wonder at the hurdles,

Power will be able to lead him this
On the other hand, Nebraska will
enter the Kansas meet with one of the
best teams in CornhtiBker history.
Captain Reed, together with May,
Christmas and others, will show the
best class t)f speed merchandise lhat
Lincolnites have witnessed for years.
Heed, however, has been saving him
self for the 220 and 410. leaving the
shorter dashes Tor the other men. If
as successful Saturday In these events
as ho was at Ames on the muddy
track, he will undoubtedly send Jay
hawk prospects far below par. Tf An
derson can even maintain his 2:01
variety, which he executed on the
same muddy track last Saturday, the
long distance Kausans may prepare
for a second clnss finish. If the
weather is good Saturday, there is
every probability that many Nebraska
and Kansas records will be broken. It
is also an assured fact that tluoso who
miss the ' meet Saturday will fall to
see some of the best athletes in the
valley in nction.
Band Will Not Render Program
Campus This Evening.
It has been necessary to postpone
the band concert scheduled for this
evening. Several unexpected obstacles
were encountered bj those promoting
the scheme and It waB found Impos
sible to arrange nny for this week.
It is hot.ed that satisfactory arrange
ments may be made later.
TICKETS GO FAST.
Idea of a Military Ball Seems to Suit
Tickets Tor the military bull have
been on sale one day and the demand
was great. It is expected that the
supply will be exhausted in a few days
as the limit is placed at lot) "Couples.
The military ball Is an innovation and
seems to be to the liking of those
who follow the art of Terpsichore. ''

Clever 8tunts .Performed and Paro

Jokes and Joy predominated at tho
Pan-Hellenic banquet held Tuesday
at the Lincoln. With few exceptions
all the Nebraska Greeks were pres
ent , and thoKe who staid away wero
unavoidably detained. Many novel
and unique Htunts wero performed.
The one probably the most amusing
was the holding of a large cartoon
over Hie head of oach speaker asTTo
was Introduced by the toustmasler.
Tho pictures wero Illustrations of the
subjects or the speakers themselves.
Many keen parodies on up-todato
songs had been composed for tho oc
casion. These were rondored by tho
quartets and glee club. There were'
twenty-live in the latter organization
and two lntcrfratcmlt) quartctB took
part, besides a colored quartet from
the outside. There was hardly a mo
ment without something doing. After
each toast the results of the election
returns were announced.
The cuisine was excellent and
seemed to suit the fraternity palates.
Seven courses were served, and then
came tho cigars. The speaking be
gan In earnest and some of the best
toasts ever given nt a banquet were
heard. Several were serious and sev
eral were funny. Those assigned sub
jects showed plainly that they had
given a groat deal of time and thought
in prepaortion. It would bo niOBt dif
llcult to say which was the best and
which received the greatest favor from
tho banqueters. Hon. W. A. Sellcck
as toastmastbr told many funny
stories in introducing the speakers.
The whole affair was over by 10:30,
in record breaking time. All present
declared It one ol the biggest events
of the year and a grand success. Two
hundred and seventy-live were served,,
and many more came in to hear the
tonsts. which follow: Mayor Don L.
Love, "University and City"; Hon.
Geo. A. Adams. "Ancient Greece';
Edward C. Maggl, "Hores; Chancel
