NEBRASKA WINS FROM GOPHERS
OMAHA THBFE1E DAY HONORS
Double track meet drew a larger crowd than
has. been seen on the Nebraska field for a track
meet for years-Huskers all in prime condition
and made opponent work for the fifty-five
points Relay race told tale.
Saturday afternoon tho athletic
field was the acono of two oxciting
meets. The program Included tho an
nual clash between the Gophers and
the Cornhuskers, In which Nebraska
won by the close margin of G2 to 56,
and tho annual high school meet, in
which Omaha camo out victorious
with comparative ease.
The Nebraska-MlnneBota meet was
nip and tuck tho entire time. With
fourteen of the ovontB over with, tho
score stood 57 to 55 in favor of Ne
braska. Then camo the final and de
ciding event, the mile relay. It was a
brilliant climax for the afternoon.
Scott for Nebraska started off with a
dash and came in about fifteen yards
ahead of Spink. Howard managed to
retain moBt of the lead, but in the
third quarter Gootzo was speedily
overtaken by tho flying Montgomery,
who finished by putting Minnesota in
the lead. In the last quarter Zum
winkle, in a brilliant burst of speed,
soon overtook Robertson and finished,
amidst the wild cheering of the root
ers, a full eight yards ahead of his
opponent, thereby winning tho meet.

The Wesloyan men trimmed tho
freshmen Friday afternoon, 79 to 38.
The meet was not spectacular, but
good time was made In all Jrack

work was the high jumping of VIdal.
Ho won tho event with a spring of 5
feet 10 lnchqs and had several Inches
to spare. Rasmusen won second In
the high hurdles and first in the low
hurdles. Smith won the hundred
yards, bit was unable to take part In
tho 220 because of having to leave to
catch a train. Smith has good chances
of developing lntar a fast man If ho
glveB himself tho proper care. Bates
won second In a fast 440, while Raicho
added three more points for a second
in tho two mile. Anderson, captain of
tho freshmen, ran Gillian a close mile,
but was nosed out by the fast Wos

burst of speed as thoy approched tho
tape, won both places. In tho quarter
mile run, although Zumwinkle was
unquestionably tho best quarter-mller
on tho track, he lost tho raco to Rob
ertson In a heartrending finish. Later
In the milo Zumwinkle took revonge
by simply running away from his op
ponent. All three of the distance runs went
to Minnesota. In tho milo, although
Gootzo was picked to win, he lost to
Wallace, duo to tho fact that ho had
lost eount of the laps and had cut
looso with a sprint a lap short of tho
finish. Tho two-mllo run resulted In
a cleanup for Minnesota. In the half
mile run Montgomery defeated Kublk
In a pretty race.
In tho field events, Myers won his
two usual firsts in tho high jump and
tho discus and a second In tho shot

to Reavls and Lindstrum. The moot,
in short, was a flno contest and was
exciting to tho finish. With this vic
