COACH REED'S TRACK TEAM VIC
NEBRASKA OVERTURNS DOPE
Llndstrum Ties With "Seven" Myers
nlng Three Points Goetze
Runs Great Race In Mile.
Tho Nebraska track team over
turned the dope In their meot with
Ami's IubL Saturday; Although de
prived of Goetze and Ross In tho meet
with tho Jayhuwkers a week ago last
Saturday, the defeat by the Kansas
men was rather expected. This was
tho general expectation due to tho
fact that the" Nebraska men had not
rounded Into shape. On tho same day
that Nebraska lost at Kansas, Ames
won fronMissourl at Columbia. Ever
since the victory of Ames over tho
strong Missouri team tho followers of
tho Nebraska track team have been
fearful of the Amos-Nobraslca result.
When the news flashed over the wire
Saturday evening that Nebraska had
cleaned tho Cyclones by the nice mar
gin of 68 to 46, tho Cornhusker stay-at-homes
were overjoyed. Tho track
at Ames Is a complete quarter-mile
cinder path and Is so located that It Is
Unprotected from the wind. Accord
ing to estimates made Saturday, thoro
was a thirty-mile wind blowing down
tho homestretch. This strong wind,
which the runners toad to face all the
way in tho hundred and tho 220,
which was a straightaway, account for
the 220. Tho 440 was one of the
thrillers of the afternoon. Scott
jumped to tho lead with tho gun and
kept ahead until ho hit tho home
stretch, where the wind fairly beat
him down. All four men finished close
together with Wilson of Ames first and
Zumwlnkle second. Kubik ran a close
second. Goetze took tho mile from
Lynder by a yard In a fighting finish.

LAST SYMPHONY PROGRAM
"NEW WORLD SYMPHONY"
Suggestive of Plantation Melodlet
First Movement Like "Swing
Low Sweet Chariot."
Dvorak's "Now World Symphony"
will bo given at convocation today.
This work, composed during
Dvorak's rosldenco In Now York
(1892-95), Is perhaps tho most popular
In America of his -symphonies
Most of this composer's music Is
characterized by strong national fool
ing; tho stylo of tho Bohemian Volk
slledor appears In many of his themes,
which his genius elaborates with In
teresting and varied detail, but In all
the working out of his motives tho
pronounced local color of Bohemian
music may usually be discerned.
During his stay In the United States
he became much interested In the
original melodies of tho southern
negro, and ho thought that an Amor
lean national style of music might bo
created based on theBO primitive and
ve plantation songs. T-hls sym
phony is in tho nature of an experi
ment Tvith this material. Though he
lms not actually transferred any of
these melodies to his score, there aro
hints and suggestions In tho several
movements that pretty definitely re
call tho general character of these
This is particularly noticeable In the
first movement, which contains mo
tives reminding one of certain strains
In "Swing Low,' Sweet Chariot," while
the second movement has a, simple but
beautiful melody that suggests the
lullaby"of some black. mammy.
Though we may not be ready to ac
cept such melodies as our national
music, it Is interesting to note how
skilfully the composer has united
thel rpecullar character with his" own
styfe and method,' , ..

The crowd seemed to bo greatly mter
