LINCOLN, March 13. (Special. )-The
showing of the Cornhusker athletes In the
meet at the Sioux City auditorium last
night cannot be taken as an Indication of
what they will be able to do In the com
ing grand meet at Omaha. The men who
went to Sioux City for Nebraska did not
represent the athletic strength of the local
All the best athletes had planned on go
ing until Saturday morning, when several
of them discovered thst their school work
would force them to remain at home. Lit
tle Intereat was taken here among the
students in the Sioux City gamea and
the athletes did not care to compete there,
owing to the many handicaps that would
have been placed against them.
Nebraska's star athlete and captain of
last year, Dale McDonald, decided at the
last minute not to go to Sioux City. He
was the best man In the hurdles last year
In the Missouri valley meet, and there Is
little doubt that he would havo proved a
winner had he made the trip to the Iowa
Another athlete who did not get to com
pete was Funkhouser, a weight man. He
would probably have won first place In
the twelve-pound shot put. In the local
charter day meet he shoved the weight
over forty-four feet At the meet last
night the best mark was barely thirty
The relay team of tho Cornhuskers,
which wss defeated by Drake, was handi
capped by the lots of McDonald. He was
one of the fastest men on the quartet, and
his failure to make the trip denied the men
a great sprinter for one of the laps.
-Little Interest was taken In the Sioux
City meet by the local athletes because
of the Omaha gamea, which are leas than
a month away. By that time the Corn
huskers will be drilled and trained to to
their best and they will plan on winning
many points. Some of the Cornhuskers
were not In the best of condition yester
day and they felt It would bo better to
stay out of the Sioux City games and not
run any chances of being defeated, when
they would have another opportunity to
show their prowess against all kinds of
athletes at the Omaha meet. For two
weeks the Nebraska runners and other
athletes have been training for the Omaha
contests and they should be in fine condi
tion by the time for that meet
As soon as the track coach is elected,
which event probably will occur tomorrow,
he will take charge of ths cinder path
