Early Indications point to a record-break-ing
meet on Fete day, as the list of entries

Mann of the Lincoln high and Luae of the

some of tha competing schools. Mann
played professional base ball In the Mink
league laat season, It Is claimed, while Luse
la not eligible to compete, it Is claimed,
having played his allotted time as a high
school athlete In all branchee of sport. Both
Mann and Luse are star athletes, each
having ahont aa a gridiron star, as a bas
ketball player and a track athlete.
No Individual Prise,

It rotating with the hearty approval of
tha officials and high school authorities,
for It la believed that, this effectually re
moves tha most serious danger of a ntS"
school meet or the tendency of a high

other plans for entertainment on fete day
ara progressing nicely and arrangements
are nearly complete for the entertainment
of the high achool visitors. Following the
customary visit at the university grounds,
the high school students will be enter

planning entertainment for the evening.

Interest In the track events at the Uni
versity of Mlnneaota the coming week ren
ter In the Nebraska dual meet on Satur
day afternoon with the freshman meet with
Carlton at Northfleld tomorrow as a aide
issue. Not much Is known at present
about Nebraska. Tha Cornhuskers have
been making soma pretty good showings
with tha Missouri valley schools this spring,
but a definite Una on their possibilities haa
not reached Mlnneaota. Tha Gopher men
ara feeling confident since their defeat of
Wisconsin a week ago by such a decisive
score that they can not only take care of
Nebraska on Saturday, but will alao take
Iowa Into camp a week later.
Tha team which will meat Nebraska will
not ba materially different from tha one
that won from Wisconsin a week ago. The
men have all been before the eligibility
committee and It la now too late to enter
any more. Several men who passed the
committee did not enter tha Wisconsin meet
because they were not in form, but they
expect to go against Nebraska Saturday.
All of the men are training hard In the
hopes of being sent into tha conference to
What Oum Ho Think I
Coach Grant still feels that the Gophers
are a little weak in field events In spite
of tha fact that tha Gophers took nearly
double Wisconsin's points In tha fields.
Gansale did not make good in the Badger
meet because be practiced a few daya with
the twelve-pound hammer and tha ten
pound drew him out of the circle. He has
been working hard since the Sadger meet
and should ba good for a place Saturday.
Jamea Walker, of wide foot ball fame, haa
been working on the hammer and discus
for several weeks and feels competent to
enter against Nebraska. Wlpperman, Smith
and Frank have been getting out steadily
and Increasing their .effective distance.
Tha freshman team will leave Minneapolis
early tomorrow morning for Northfleld
where they will meet Carlton college In
the afternoon. Tha meet will ba run off
in time for tha team to leave Carlton and
return to Minneapolis before evening. Coach
Grant feela confident that tha youngsters
will turn tha trick in tha running events,
but feels that they are weak in tha field.
The following men will make this trlpi

further advantage of earlier outdoor train

Schmidt, third baaeman for Iowa, is
tha only member of last year's Infield to
be on the 1911 team. Captain Hook will
play behind the bat, Wright at aecend. and
Ferris at short. Wright played the outfield
last season. Mericle and Williams will also
play In the outfield. Alcorn Is tha only

Varied Programs to Accomodate All
Have Been Prepared at
Golf and tennis and all the Joys of out-
oor club life make their triumphal entry
nto Omaha next Saturday when tha Omaha
Field club and the Omaha Country club
hold their annual openings for the year
1. Socially also the advent of tha ath
letlo man and the "summer girl" into
prominence will be one of the big affairs
f the season.
The two big clubs that have for many
eara past fostered tha golf and tennla of
Omaha generally hold their annual open
ings on different date, but next Saturday
both organlsationa will start tha year with
a varied list of sporting events during the
ay followed by table d'hote dinner and a
brilliant social evening at tha clubhouses.
Pine late laat fail workmen have been
busy on both tha Country elub and tha
Field club golf courses, building over parts
f the courses, renovating greens and tees,
and generally improving tha facilities for
play at cost of aeveral thousand dollars.
Work on tha Field club la still proceeding
on the new undulating green of tha course.
Blghteen-hole play, using tha handicaps
n force at tha close of laat Mason, will ba
enjoyed by the golfers Saturday. Two
prizes will ba put up at tha Field elub for
the opening and two or three for tha win
ners at the Country club. Medal play will
ba the scoring.
It's going to work a little hard on tha
members of both these popular plaooa this
ear. Heretofore tha "repeaters" havo
been able to attend opening day festivities
at each on following Saturdays, but this
year it will have to ba choice by a coin tosa
aa to where ha will spend tha day. It la
rumored that a band of those who belong
to both have evolved tha brilliant plan of
attending one party for tha dinner and
tha early evening and embarking In their
autoa and arxeding to tha other club for
tha balance of fun to be had.
Tennla will open formally at tha Field
club next Saturday. Tha eourta were In
shape yesterday and many raquot fiends
were on hand for a trial of them, but tha
real opening oomea a week from tha pree
tica day. Tha big street paving roller of
Hugh Murphy was placed on tha plowed
up grounds last week and aoon reduced
the seven courts to a fine state of hard
