Minneapolis Is laboring under a hoodoo Just
as the team was getting ready to lambast the
everlasting dumplings out of Joe Cantlllon's team
yesterday, the clouds began to roll up in the
southwest like kids coming over the left-field
fence at a holiday game.
Two umpires. King and Anderson, were out in
theii nice blue Chinese shirts, and anything
in the way of a hit or strike was to have had a
run for its money. The rain began to dribble

The bush leaguers began to catch the hail in

That is how close Milwaukee came to getting
the worst diubbing of its baseball life.

This was decided at a meeting of the athletic

finally lost by one vote It was decided to
"enter a team in the Chicago conference meet,
June 8, and also to send a team to compete in
the western championship A A. U. meet, Kan

ing a squad to Minneapolis was due to the
heavy expense, and a meet had previously been
arranged with Colorado university for Lincoln
on that date. The western school refused to
agree to the change, and the local board did
not enjoy the prospect of the serious compli

FOR DUAL MEET
Cinder Track at Northrop Field
Is in Splendid Condition
Minnesota track men are ready for the first
real test of the year in the dual meet with
Northwestern university tomorrow afternoon on
The rains of the past week, altho handicapping
the men in then, outdoor woik and pieventing
stiff training, have soaked the tinder track until
it is hard and Aim and in the best possible
condition If a good tiack goes foi anj thing,
some of the university records will go glimmer
Followers of the track game expect a close
and exciting meet. The number of new and
untried men on the Minnesota team makes it
impossible to know just what the gophers are
capaoie of, but the records in the preliminary
meets have been satisfactory. Altho beai re
ports from Chicago announce that the North
western team expects defeat, the status of track
athletics at the Methodist institution does not
confirm the prophecy, and undoubtedly the
Noithwestern track men expect to even up with
Minnesota for the football defeat of last fall.
Minnesota expects to win the sprints and the
quarter-mile run, but should Doherty, Robertson
and Hunter, the mainstays of the gopher team
In these events, fall down in the races tomor
row, even the most ardent gopher backer will
admit that Minnesota's chances are slim, for the
gopher hopes rest largely on these three men.
In the mile run Van Meter has been showing
good form, but he Is an unknown quantity in
fast company. His record at Princeton univer
sity before he came to Minnesota was good,
however, and he is expected to land an "M"
in the meet tomorrow.
Lammers looks the most promising of the
freshmen track men. He is a pole vaulter, and
at the recent indoor meet broke the indoor
record, vaulting 10 feet 6 inches. Bamblneck,
the Northwestern pole vaulter, is said to be
one of the best men on the Northwestern team,
and this event should be one of the most Inter
esting of th day
Of the thirty men composing the Minnesota
team Robertson, Murphy and Twidt are the
only veterans. The rest of the men are new
to university track work. The meet will be
called at 2 30 o'clock.
