ANNUAL TRYOUTS HELD SATUR
DAY BEFORE SMALL CROWD.
TRACK WAS IN GOOD SHAPE
Freshmen Make Good Showing Smith
Shows Class in the 100 and 220
Kappa Alpha Thetas
Win Sorority Relay.
Before a fair sprinkling of track en
thusiasts the track tryouts were pulled
off Saturday afternoon in a very satis,
factory-manner. Tho track, although
a trifle wet, was in excellent condi
tion, and tho day was ideal for run
Although the time In all events was
rather slow, tho meet was character
ized by cIobo competition. In several
events the outcome was In doubt until
the very end, when some, athlete by
an extra spurt would broak tho tapo
first. In tho 100-yard dash, George
Irwin won from Horb Iteeso by a
scant foot In tho fast time of 10:1.
In tho 220-yard dash, Scott won in
23:4 after ho and Reese had run prac
tically the whole distance on even
"terms. The high hurdles, tho 440-yard
dash and tho "half-mile also furnished
close and exciting races. In tho mile
run, Ralph Anderson, a freshman, won
handily In 4:47, being nevor In any
danger. Tho freshmen, on tho whole,
did some very good work. The run
ning of Smith especially attracted
much attention. lie won both the 100
yard and 220-yard dashes In fast time.
Tho most exciting and thrilling
event of tho afternoon was tho Inter
sororlty half-milo relay race. The ath
letes representing the Kappa Alpha
Theta sorority won In the good time
of 1:35. During the first three quar
ters of tho race the Alpha O team
led by a comfortablo margin, but In
the last lap, Guy Reed, by running
one of tho boBt racos of his career,
speedily overtook the flying Zumwln
klo and won the race by a margin of
a couple of yards.
Tho tryouts, on the whole,, demon
strated that Nobraska Is to be repre
sented by a fairly strong track team
one which undoubtedly Is stronger
than that of last year. The team Is
especially strong In the dashes and
should well be ablo to hold its own in
