LINCOLN. Neb.. Iert. II. (Special.)
With the fight between the student ard
faculty members of the athletic' board at
n end, the attention of tn stunetus n
the elate university has again been
turned to the approaching election of a
captain for the 1im foot hall team. The
attempt to change the system of ath

a few of the men Immediately concerneu

heal over soon, leaving the situation much
as It vm befor the revolutionary move

These new rules provide for the same
management and athletic board that have
controlled athletics before. The only
changes made from the former system
were to put all athletics under the de
partment or physical education ami iu
provide that after the season of 1909 a
Blngle coach for both foot ball and base
ball shall be hired.
In Dlaclr.ir the athletics under the ae
partment of physical education tne re
gents provided for a professor of physical
comer of all the Rourkes, and George Is
something of a picker. But what the Omaha
team will accomplish next aeaaon must re
main a problem for the present; it Is all
on pajwr to far. With new men at first,

over the way things wound up In 1908. Great
-beams of light have broken In on Omaha
since September 14. It Is apparent already
that local fans never have been as anxious
for a Winning team aa they are for one
next season. With the two Kansas towns
added making an eight-team circuit
Omahans feel that a pennant would mean
much mora thin It haa meant In the last
few rears and that Omaha should be able

' What a change has come over the world:

the day of rowdyism haa gone not only in
Pittsburg and Baltimore, but everywhere;
It's a relic of the past.

The election of the 1909 captain has
been set for Tuesday afternoon at 4:30

that the thirteen men who are certain
to get "Ns" have made up their minds as
to how they are to vote, and that they
stand divided. 7 to s. If Temple is

NEW YORK, Dec 13. Floyd McParland,
the veteran bicycle rider of California, won
the sixteenth annual aix-day race for the
team of MacFarland and lloran at Madison
Square Garden last night and set a new dis
tance. Rutt of the Rutt.-Stol, German-Hoi
land team, finished second, and Demara of
the Demara-Hlll combination, the former
of California and the latter of Boston, was
third. The final sprint of one mile was be
tween the representatives of these three
teams, wtilcfli were on equal terms as to
distance covered, the others withdrawing to
give them a clear track. The three teams
that took part In the final dash covered
2,737 miles one lap in 142 hours, which li
three miles seven laps ahead of the record
set by Miller and Waller In 1S99.
Following Is the stand;ng of the eight
teams that finished the race:
MacFarland and Moran
Rutt and Stol
Hill and Demara
Walthour and Root
Collins and Mitten
Galvin and Wiley
Anderson and Vanonl
Palmer and Drobach
Former record: 2733.4.
All the riders except MacFarland, Rutt
and Demara left the track at 10 o'clock and
one minute later these three riders, who
had led the others by one or more laps
for the last three days, began the decisive
mile. They started at a good clip and
sprinted desperately for the last three laps.
MacFarland got the lead and finished
scarcely five feet ahead of Rutt. who was
the same distance ahead of Demara.
The money prizes that went to the sur
viving teams were divided as follows: Fl-st,
11.600; second, tl.OCiO; third, TOO; fourth.
1500; fifth, 300; sixth, 1250; seventh, 1200.
Great Crowd at Finish.
Early In the evening an enormous crowd
gathered In the big amphitheater to witness
the final hours of one of the most keenly
contested bicycle races held In the sixteen
years history of six-day contests. Prob
ably 12,000 persons watched tho ellipse

maining teams steadily rede until the bell
sounded for the final sprint between the

ship, would be tho Rutt-Stol, MacFarland
Moran and Hill-Dcmara combinations.
Attention was largely centered upon the
riders of these teams, who were tied for
the lead, as they wound around the course,
warily watching eBch other for the least
sign of an attempt to gain a lap. At the
same time the three leaders were con
stantly on the alert to prevent their nearest
rivals, the Walthour-Root team, from gain
ing the one short tenth of a mile that
meant the addition of another man to the
list of starters in the deciding mile rush.
There were many short sprints during the
evening, under the inspiration of a big
enthusiastic crowd, but all proved fruit

Pace Fast from Beginnings
The pace was fast from the opening
today. Throughout the week almost every
hour showed new records over those
established by Miller and Waller in 1S99
and Elkes and MacFarland In 1900. ' The
pace was too fast for several of the teams
and they were forced to drop out under the
pressure. For the last four days, how
ever, the leaders were those of the closing
hours. All three racers showed remarkable
staying power, Rutt and Stol, last year'
winners being picked on form by many
from tha start to close In the lead and
win out in the sprint. The veteran Mac
Farland on a previous winning team, rid
ing with the steady-going Moran, was
another strong favorite. Hill and Demara,
hitherto unknown to the six-day . racing
enthusiasts here, won popular approval by
their clever and game riding. Walthour
and Root lost a lap In mid-week and for
the last three days they dogged the heels
of the leading teams with steady per
