CORNHUSKER GIRLS LEFT OFF THE YANKEE TRACK TEAM
GOES TO PARIS MEET
Yet the Nebraska Girls Placed Second
in the International Telegraphic
Meet by Winning Four Firsts and
Tying for Two Others Placed In
Every Event They Enttred.
Four firsts and in ties for two other
firsts; places In every one of the nine
events which were entered; and, as a
side line, winning two first places and
one second place in events not in the
meot that was the record compiled
by the University of Nebraska co eds
entered in the International Telegra
phlo meet held the latter part of May
in which the Cornhusker girls placed
second. Florida was the only school
hlch compiled more points. They
piled up 37, to Nebraska's 29.
But apparently Nebraska's record of
that meet counts nothing. The Ameri
can team of women athletes to parti
cipate in the international track meet
for women to be held in the Persh
ing stadium at Paris on August 20,
has been announced and not a Ne
braska girl has been placed oh the
team. That after the Cornhusker
co-eds had defeated some of the best
college girls' teams in the country
and had made records which threat
ened the world's marks.
Cornhusker co-eds made good rec
ords in the telegraphic meet. They
showed that they were real track ath
letes. Yet they are not given a place
on the team which goes to Paris.
Record of Husker Girls
Some of the records which the Ne
braska girls made in the international
telegraphic meet can be compared fav
orably with any in the country, it is
believed. The records follow:
GO-yard hurdles Nebraska and New
Mexico tied for first, 9 4-5 seconds.
50-yard dash Nebraska and Cali
fornia tied for first, 6 3-5 seconds.
Running broad Jump Nebraska first
14 feet 7 1-5 seconds.
8-pound shot ' putNebraska first,
30 feet, 8 1-2 inches.
500-yard relay (10 runners) Ne
braska first, 1 minute; 12 3-5 seconds.
Baseball throw,' Nebraska first, 199
feet. Next best record 185 feet.
Pole vault Nebraska first, 5 feet,
75-yard dash Nebraska flTst, 9 4-5
Hop, step and jump California
first, 28 feet, 11 inches; Nebraska sec
ond, 28 feet, 4 4-5 seconds.
Besides these, Nebraska co-eds
placed third in the Javelin throw,
fourth in the running high .lump,
fourth in the basketball throw and
third with four runners in the 220
TOO LONG " "
Orators, we read, live longer than
other persons. Our impression Is that
it only seems longer to their audience.

laboratory fitted with metal dissect

Over in the corner is a tank filled
with the historic segments so often
celebrated in the song, "Just Pickle
