POPULAR TRACK MAN WILL ACT
A8 A88I8TANT COACH
Guy E. Rood, 1910, who recently de
cided to leave very soon for Kansas
City, Mo., where ho Intended to go
Into training for tho Olympics held
at Stockholm, Swodon, has now
changed his mind and will remain at
tho University of Nebraska. Here ho
will train for the Olympic team for
his alma mater and act as assistant
coach this spring.
The roasons that Rood will not train
with tho Kansas City Athlotlo Club
are because of his relations with tho
University, which ho doemod of
greater importance than those ho
would receive at tho hands of the
K. C. A. C. Much pressure was
brought to bear by tho Nebraska
alumni to get Reed to remain at Ne
braska and complete his training here,
so that if ho mado tho Olympic team
at Chicago in May he will represent
the University of Nebraska rather
than an outdido interest. Tho popu
lar young sprinter also has many
friends throughout tho state, .all of
whom did not want to see him leave
As assistant coach of tho track
team he will receive no pay, but will
be with the team every day through
out tho track season; in this way ho
will got his training for tho events in
Chicago, which will decide whether or
not ho will go to Sweden.
