Captain Reed, Out of Condition, and
Anderson Run Wonder
ful Races.
For the first time in the last eight
years, or since the innovation of dual
track meets between Nebraska and
Minnesota the Cornhuskers lost to the
latter school in the track meet last
Saturday; falling to win by a marginal
number of aeven 'points 62 to 55.
- The meet was without doubt one of
tho moBt exciting and fastest over
held between tho two schools. Minne
sota, as was known previous to the
departuro of tho Nebraska aggrega
tion, had the best array of track and
Held athletes known In tho history of
that institution. Hill, Vanstrum and
Anderson are considered in the world
of sport ns speeders of first class,
while such phonoms as Prank and
Lambert strengthened tho total point
victories from the field events. And
additionally to such a splendid repre
sentation of track material, the entire
Minnesota team had taken the neces
sary precaution of two weeks antici
pation of the Cornhuskers. By so do
ing, every man waB in his prime, none
of them being stiff or In any other way
physically disabled.
Guy Reed and Louie Anderson were
the most brilliant stars for Nebraska.
Reed was sick and ought not to have
been on thejleld. At that ho broke
two Nebraska records by a good mar
gin and his racos were tho feature of
t& meet. Intho 220 ho ca"me very
close to the world's record of 21 1-5,
and his time was better than that in
any other meet In tho United States
on Saturday.
Anderson also smashed two Nebras
ka records, as well as tho Minnesota
records In the distance runs. Nebras
ka won first in eight out of fifteen
events. With Captain Reed In condi
tion the relay Tvould have been won.

The result of the meet depended
completely on the result of tho relay.
The relay race, which was hold till
tho last, wap started with the score
Nebraska 55, Minnesota 57. Notwith
standing the fact that Captain Reed
was seri6usly sick at the opening of
this event, the prospects for Nebras
ka shot a good rlso and caused every
Gopher in the field to make hazardous
guesses on Nebraska victory. At the
pistol shot, Gibson of Nebraska was
opposed to Nelson of Minnesota, and
contrnry to some expectation, Jimmy
closed his quarter of tho event about
ten yards to the good. It was then,
however, that the three remaining
CornhuBkera commenced competition
with the three aforementioned "track
stars. Powers was" unable to hold his
handicapped distance and closed his
share about on a par with the Gopher.
In the next lap Amberson loBt a great
distance to .Anderson and gave Guy
the cue wJth a twenty-yard handicap
foV our captain. With such odds t6
face; Guy ran the race of his life and
brought the stands to .their JeeJ. hY
finishing almost within touching dis
tance of tho fleet Hill.

Dr. J. A. L. Waddell of Kansas City,
who is considered one of the beBt
bridge engineors In tho world and
upon whom tho honorary degree of
Doctor of Engineering wns conforred
at the dedication of tho new mechan
ical engineering building, addressed a
series of meetings of the engineering
students Monday. At 11 a. m. he
spoke to a general- meeting of all en
gineering students on "Bridge Engi
neering," and at 2 p. m. ho spoko on
"The Materials of Construction,
Dredging and Foundations In Gen
eral," and at 4:30 p. m, he gave an
Informal talk on "Movable BrldgeB,"
and at 8 p. m. he addressed a joint
meeting of the Engineering society,
A. I. E. E. and A. S. M. E. on "Ethics
of a, Bridge Engineer, Arbitration, Ad
ministration of construction, Riveted
versus Pin Connected Trusses and
Engineering Fees."
In tho address on "Bridge Engineer
ing" ho road a paper which ho had
divided Into three chapters; they
were the "Bridge Specialist," "Respon
sibility of tho Bridge Engineer" and
JTho Promotion of a Bridge Project."
Ho said, In brief: -
"Specialization Is the order oflho
day. A few. years ago a man onjy
had to have a general education to be
a successful engineer, but today he
muEt devote his whole time to one
line. There are specialists In all the
professions, especially engineering,' At
first a ipan was known simply as an
engineer when ho was engaged In en
gineering work, but as now branches
developed ho was known as a civil,
electrical or mechanical onglneer,
whichever Uno he wns working in and
now these are subdivided Into numer
ous other Important subdivisions,
such as municipal, sanitary, Irrigation
and others. The bridge onglneer has
been recognized ns a specialist for a
quarter of a century, and as a subdi
vision of civil engineering."
He then spoko upon the growth and
employment of the bridge specialists,
especially In railroad work. Also tho
reasons for their employment and
why, tHo builder should novor bo al
lowed to design tho bridge and tho
dangers assumed when the builder
does do tho designing. As an exam
ple of these he quoted lotters and evi
dence takon before tho Investigating
committee nppointed to look Into tho
cause of tho failuro of tho Quebec
"Bridges are divided Into four klndn.
steam railroad, electric railroad, driv
ing and rodestrlan trnfilc. Tho latter
two are most generally combined."
tie men ciiBcussed the conditions caus
ing tho building- of tho bridge, who
pays for it, and the profit derived from
a bridge project. Ho also gave tho
polntB to bo taken account or In tho
promoting of a bridge and gave a de
tailed explanation of tho methods by
which a bridge Is promoted. In con
elusion ho .gave a number of rules to
be followed In the study of bridge
engineering and in tho practice of that
profession, and the motto of a bug-
cessful bridge specialist should bo,
"Integrity, fairness and progress."
Tho rest of his addresses were of a
technical nature and took tho form of
a class room lecture, and each one
wns hoard by a large number of the
engineers. Nebraska onclneors worn
.Indeed very fortunate to have such a
noiou engineer as Dr. Wadde 11 address
them, and a fact of added Interest In
JiS speaking hero at Nebraska Is that
Dr. Waddell volunteered to come hero
and deliver these lectures to the en
gineering students without any ex
pense to tho university In any man
ner at all.
