l)r llHHtliitfH returned from Onnilin
last Tiiendn, afternoon where lie had
gone to push the niou'inent for the
Trat'iH-MiHHiHHlppI traoU meet, lie had
a talk with the ehalrmun of the.
nuuiscuicut departinent. of the exposi
tion, who highly favors the plan for a
truck athletle meet. The exposition of
llcliil expressed the opinion that It
would be more a matter of how to
lil'liiK about the meet than a question
as to whether we will be able to ac
complish It. He mhIumI for an estlmnto
of theeost of a track, grand stand and
the expense of bringing traek teams to
Omaha. The fuel that twenty Colleges
hae already expressed their vtHti4
uess and desire t enter sueh a meet-,
lent siieli weight to Dr. Hustings' ur
giiiucut that he feels that the meet Is
pructleiiUy assured. A new lnnnnger of
the nmuseinent feature of the exposl
lion will be M'cnivd very soon, and
when he takes ehnrgc of alTalrs the en
terprise will be deelded. The question
now remains as to wtieltier w will
meet Minnesota in a d.inl tniek meet.
It rests with the students whether Ne
braska deeldes to aeeept Minnesota's
challenge. Those who would represent
ihe l'nierslty in sueh n eonlest are
heart ih in favor of it. What say you?
nother objeet of Dr. Hastings' visit
to Omaha was to further the. Interests
r the Physical Kdueution society of
this stati-. He regards the prospects
encoui lining for an investigation of the
growth of ehildren In Nebraska. Such
an investigation would involve the
measuring of about 30,000 ehildren,
17,000 of whom are in Omaha. The
stuli.stii.nl committee ov ttie society has
outlined blnnks to lx used in the in
vestigation. The technical committee
is now working up a meeting of physi
cal educators for Omaha, .lune 28, 20
and .10. This is the date for the na
tional conference of the society at Bos
ton, It is expected that, western edu
cators unable to go to ltoston will be
drawn by the exposition to Omaha.
Superintendent C. (?. l'cnr-e of Omnhn,
as a member of the technical commitr
tee, will be of great, value in organiz
ing such a conference.
question among the athletes now
is. who will win the interclass trophy,
u silver cup presented by the Arm
strong Clothing company, .ur. Arm
strong is rendy to order the cup and
will get a handsome affair as soon as
lie learns exactly what design the uni
versity wishes. The sophomores claim
they have cup cinched, but they may
overestimate their athletic prowess. It
will be a question whether the seniors,
juniors and freshmen can take away
from the sophomores the class cham
pionship, which they now hold.

gineering point of view, the construc
tion of such a waterway was entirely
Mr. ISwart argued that for diminu
tion of excessive freight rates and
saving of distance, the project should
be supported by the government.
The mighty Baker then followed in
nn argument, which many maintain
should have secured him first place.
It is sufficient to say that never did
lie appear to better advantage, lie
had his argument well in hand and
delivered it with an earnestness he has
never equalled heretofore. He main
tained that the government should
protect its national life and provide
for it.s internal development. The
government should not go into the
inter-oceanie canal business.
Mr. Mat.son closed the argument for
the affirmative by declaring that five
surveys out of six had deemed the en
geeringt feats practicable and tha
construction of the waterway would
tend to develop the whole country.
While awaiting the decision of the
judges the audience was pleasantly
entertained by selections by the Lin
coln Business College bund and a
ladies banjo quartet. Green and Den
nison, two of the last year's debaters,
responded to calls for seeeh.
The judges reported the following
nawed in order: Kindler, Baker,
Hnwxby, Miss Stull, Ta.vlor, "Warner,
Ferry and Matson.
The following -will probably Imj the
teams to represent us: Baker, Saek

May; and "Warner, Mntwon, and Terry

There Is a tendency In the university

been placed on Intellect uallsin. In
some cases, through mistaken zeal, the
scleut'lllc method has been applied to
the study of the languages and litera

been robbed of much of the benefit
that ought to be derived from them.
In closing, President Sehurman forc
ibly appealed to the students before
him to contribute to the welfare and
betterment of society about them. Xot
all of them, he said, could hold offices,
but they could wield a salutary Intlu
dice as private citizens.
At the conclusion of the address
short speeches were made by A. C.
Wakely and .ludge Irvine in behalf of
the ( ornell alumni who were present.
Both referred, as the chancellor hnn
done before, to the similarity of spirit
between Cornell and our own univer

would naturally cost some five or six
hundred dollars, but owing to special
arrangement the eost will probably

igent for various buildings has offered
the necessary cinders free of charge.
Dr. Hastings thinks it entirely prob
able that all the lalxir required will
be donated by the different gym
classes, hence the only largo item of
expense will be the grading . This will
be quite an extensive operation as it
involves the grading of the entire foot
Dirt must be removed from tho
southern and central jxirtions to the
north eastern corner in order that the
field be entirely level. This will inter

but in the end will prove so beneficial
that little opposition is expected from
this source- After the grading of the
field, the building of the (.rack proper
will be commenced. It will practi
cally traverse the same ground as did
the one built last spring for field day.
"When the track is completed it will
be in advance of any one of likenature

University to take the same lead in

taken in base ball and foot ball.
