In training for any long period. In the
fall of 1W7 Whittley, although he looked
to have a strong chance to win the In
tercollegiate cross-country championship,
went to the bad on account of the reap
pearance of his old trouble. - In spite of
that he entered the race nnd finished a
splendid fourth. In tact, had not his
strength given out in Just the laft few
hundred yards he must have been second.
The following spring, last year, lie ran
In the half-mile run against Tule and won
It In slightly over two minutes. He stepped
Into a hole on the Yale field and hurt his
ankle. Thtit put him out of competition
for the rest of the year. Last fall he was
unsble to compete In the cross-country
runs because he was not In any sort of
physical condition, and this srning he has
been running only for a week or so, the
late start having ben necessitated by two
operations, one in March and the other 1

Increasing the size of the training squad to

mailer than last season's bunch, yet large
enough lo give the coach plenty of athletes
for developing a winning team. N
Of the forty or fifty candidates now at
practice, ten will be sent to the training
table, which will be atarted at a local
hotel Monday. The number of this diet
squad will tw Increased to fifteen men a
week or two before the Kansas meet. The
restrictions placed on the athletlo boards
ot the various schools by the conference
ruling limits the expenditure of money for
diet tables and causes the Nebraska board
to keep down the size of the squad which
it sends to the table to about fifteen men.
In maintaining a training table ' for Its
track men Nebraska will be establishing a
precedent for the other schools composing
the Missouri valley conference. No other
university In that body ha ever kept a
track diet table, although all of them have
had foot ball tables. The running of the
table for the cinder palli men this spring
also means that the Cornhuskers will keep
One for the foot ball men next fall. Three
schools Kansas. Missouri and Nebraska

training tables will be rescinded at the
next gathering of the representatives.

teams. Since only five students are elected
to the board and these candidates are
nearly' equal In the aateem of their fellow

races In which the sailors Indulge when
opportunity offer. There 1 hardly a port
of consequence tn the world which ha not
served at One time or another a a raoe
course for navy cutters, and frequently
little fortune have changed hands on the
Fatnons Rare Involving fiiStOOO.
One of the most memorable of the race
wss that between the Illinois and tit
Kearaairge In Guantanamo bay ii- the aum
mer of 1906. At that time the lllinol crew
vss the cock of the walk, having cleaned
up the best the navy afforded. Looking
for more worlds to conquer, it sailors ex
perienced highly Joyful sensation when
they heard that the Kemsarge had a cutter
crew It thought pretty well of.
As soon as the chance came, therefore,
the Illinois boy got Into their cutter and
rowing sxress to where Kearaarg lay,
tossed their oar across the letter's bos'.
The challenge thus delivered, representa
tives of the crew met and arranged de
tails and the petty officers nf each ship
oncied wet of book in, which to register
There was no trouble In getting money
on either ship. To the men of the Kear
arge their cutter crew wa something of
an unknown quantity, but It looked good,
and could be relied upon to deliver vry
ounce it possessed, and, anyway, they were
not going to back down attar the little in
cident ot the tossed oars.
On th other vessel money came freely.
After Jack ha been aboard chip for a
time he usually ha tome money lo hi
credit (n the paymaster's hands, drawing
on the 25th of the month only enough for
his Immediate needs. One ot the men OA
the Illinois had 1200 due him. He staked
that and his next month' psy. Another
was the proud possessor Of 1300. He
staked that, borrowed 1300 .more and after
the race wa over, enliated again.
For. contrary to their expectation, the
men of the Illinois did not win. They had
collected and gambled on the proweaa of
their cutter crew 126,000, and their feelings
after It waa all over, were expressed In a
song written by one of the crew:
Lasers Sing; Their Wg.

We're more to be helped than desplsd,
We're only a crowd of poor Jackie
On a race bet, though badly advised.
They took away all of our money.
They are living In elegant style.
And the race boat Ilea up on the skid
You bet she'll stay there for a while.
The Illinois crew redeemed Itself, how
ever, at an early opportunity. Th chance

miral Evans, was lying off Bar Harbor.
A race was arranged over three-mile
straightaway course, In which eight crew
The start was at t o'clock in the after
noon. There wa a little sea running, but
not enough to make bad going. Th Kear
sarge snd the Missouri mad a fin get

rols at the start. The latter spurted, came
abreast, and for two miles the three were
bun and bow.
