a.tiuctcs have not been given a very
prominent place in the University and
are ot coinpaiatiovelj recent date,
ct the foundation has been laid mil
we have already commenced to build.
In lbs7 the University of Nebraska
held her lirst track meet. It was si
primative alValr, to be sui-o, but it w.is
the genu from Which our
present Hack athletics spriung.
1 he iv was neiUhor a goftl nor
a stlviir niedtil olVercil. The
ilrst pi lo was a pair of overalls and
the second a pickle-jar. These wore
hotlj contested for, and after all, why
not. The men were bubbling over
witili I niversity spirit and prizes were
a secondary matter.
The present athletic association was
formed at this time and every yomr
since there has been u Uniei"sity
track team, or at least a part of one.
Of course, there were no very start
ling records made, but tiniest Ucraixl
and Clarence Tell't were 10 1-2 second
men, and when we ttike into consider
ation t'hat tlu-& woiv whatever they
happened to 11 ml ami i.iu on a slow

shoes, trousers and suspenders.
Vmoiig the events at that time we lind
wrestling matches, three-legged races,
tug-of-wnr, relay race, etc.
Track athletics have steadily grown
with the institution. Medals and prbws
have insriNisvd and will increase. Fa
iilu'ics for training have beeiv hwitonti
until we maj say that tlicv are latr.
Mthough there is mncJi to be ilcsired.
l'licrc is great neud of a cinder track
and we niaj hope for it in the near fu
ture. Since 1SS7 a large number cf
track cntihiisia&ts have graduated who
are always willing to help the students
of today in perfecting the track ath
letics of the University.
Within the last two years the Uni
versity track team has become a fea
ture of some importance and will soon
take its rightful place, list year the
records were good and the University
won the intercollegiate meet handily,
but the support given by the students
was not what it should have been. In
.lune R. D. Amlreson was sent to Chi
cago to the Western Tntercollegiue
Athletic association meet and the U li
versity is satisfied that she can com
pete with the institutions represented
in this association.
The outlook this year is rerj brig'n
and there is great abundance of mate
rial. Prizes are ottered for nearly 'v
erj event, both in track meets and
pentathlons. With such men as Ik'iie
diet, Pillsbury, Andreson, Brew, Oovv
gill and others whom space will not
permit to monition, the University
should do herself proud.
Jt. E. Benedict captain of last year's
track team and a magnificent all
around athlete, is sure to add to 'lis
laurels and those of the University.
In training, skill, willingness to help
new men and the cause of athletics
in e-cneral. he exeells.
Great things may also be expected
of M. P. Pillsbury, another all-around
man. especially in the high jirmp. IBs
progress has been remarkable and 1s
-ure 1o continue.
In the dashes R. D. Andreson is tlhe
fastest .man the University has ever
had Bis 10 second record of last
j ear on a slow track places him in vhe
front rank. Be is a hard worker and
full of determination.
Brew, in the shot put and hammer
throw, has made records in the past
and will continue to do so. ne is a
good athlete and last year, as a rep
resentative of WVsleyan, defeated lie
l nhersity in several events.
Oowgill. from Nortlnvpstern, is x
pected to' do something for the Uni
versity in the Icrpg 'distance runs.
The program for tho spring is -
ccllent. A dual pentathlon with the
Omaha Y. M, 0. . is a feature which
has been added this year and protniaps
much. It will be hold April 1! at Om

C. M. STORY.
SOME WHEEL TALK.
The wheel world is awakcing in
spite of the fact that the weather man
lets his 11)00 snow storms leak out
every once in a while. Wheel men
have concluded that the dispenser of
frosts and snows is in league with the
street ear couiKinies and have decided
to go ahead without his aid or consent.
Lincoln and university riders, how
ever, are nnivh dependent upon tho
roads, which the weather man controls
absolutely, since Lincoln's streets are
safe onlj for the man who rides a bur
row or a mountain goat. It is there
fore not quite clear now cyclists ex
pect to survive if they Ignore the man,
who has it in his oower to open little
leaks in his moisture boxes and to turn
a delightful country road into a delu
sion and a snare.
t'vclo enthusiasts are young- and
hopeful, however, ami the cyclerics aro
showing most decided signs of life.
Displavs of from one to two hundred
wheels of the '90 make are the com
mon thing in the local dealer's stocks.
The machines shown are not radically
different from those shown last year,
but are the pink of perfection in i v
er.v detail of those styles. The im
provements of the last year has been
"intensive" rather than "extensive."
ICvtra care has been used in selecting
iiniterials and in putting together Mic
parts, but fads and fandangles have
not Ikh'H attempted.
The cl.ainless wheel is not to be seen
in the show windows and its merits
arc not lauded in display "ads nor
"talked" by the dealers. "It was tl. i
price that killed the ohainlos," said a
dealer the other day. "When a per
fect chain wheel could be bought for
?(i0 or $7f, a western man who earns
his own 'coin' could not bo induced to
pay $12.1 for something that was not
evidently a 'sure thing.'"
Dealers are predicting lor this year
the liveliest -trade in the history of ttic
wheel business. Prices that last
vear ranged from $00 to $75 have tills
season been cut to $40 and $6u. T'lis
piit, a wheel within the reach of the
young man or woman with the most
moderate allowance and young Amer
ica will not go without what all his
(New things in wheel sundries arc
not many. "The man .ho will find
something now in handle bars, for in
stance," said a cyclist, "will be a won
der. There are handle bars for the utr
tie tot mid the fat man, for the pleas
ure seeker and the scorcher, for the
j oath and the mniden. in fact 'lie
ground is covered more than is ncees
sar." Tho gns and electric lights,
however, are going to displace the nil
lamps, because they have greater
light-giving powers and are cleaner.
The tires are the same as -111080 on 'he
'9S wheels, though though .there are
somo new devices for plugging punc
tures. Pumps, toe-clips and pedals are
the same as those used last year, but
there hnvc been n few new saddles pat
ented and there are some new cyclom
eters, which can 1k used for the new
30 inch wheel.
Tn costumes, modesty is to be the
ruling characteristic. The girls will
wear noiseless skirts, which reach the
ankles. Their jackets must Ik? plain
and of a diiTeront color from the skirt,
and their hats are to be of tho fedora
pattern. Tho boys will be in bad
form If they do not have checked suits
with stockings, tan shoes, and a white
