It waa tn the years following the famous
(am with Minnesota at Lincoln that the
paylna; of athletes waa given Its greatest
lmpetua. The year that Minnesota Jour
neyed to Lincoln this state was foot ball
mad. Nebraska, a.l said, must have a good
team, and it did. Players took money.
Players at other schools accepted the Cain.
It was regarded by them as proper.
Until 1M money was gathered among
outsiders at Lincoln for players on the
Nebraska eleven. In rH Kannaa broke off
relatlona with the Cornhi:skers because the
Lawrence mentors declared Johnny Bender
had played summer bae ball, and was
therefore a professional. Among the men
who competed agalnnt Nebraska in that
Came which Bender won at Lawrence were
players weartnc the Kansas colors, who
had no more right to play than Bender
Players at nearly all the schools had
accepted money. Down at Nebraska now
you will be told that Johnny Bender was
paid cash for his services. Money was
raised among outsiders to support the
Cornhasker foot ball eleven. Just as other
cnoola raised cash to keep their stars In

In 1S0 the men who had been furnishing

They needed money with which to go

When tie season of Um opened not a

his set Ices. The same was true last y ear.
Two men were on the team who had re
ceived money hi 1H07, and were, therefore.
Ineligible for lntercollr-glate competition.
Not a member of the Cornhusker athletic

developed under the direction of the United

LINCOLN. May IT.-fSpecial.) When the
foot ball season opens nef fall at the
University of Nebraska rooters will find
that the game will be placed under greatly
changed field conditions. Plana are now
under way with the members of the ath
letic board for the sodding of the gridiron
and for the construction of a permanent
stand on the north to take the place of
the stands which were temporarily con
structed on that aide of the new field.
In all several thousand dollars will be
spent by the athletic board In preparing a
suitable field for the foot ball games. The
board let the contract for the sodding of
the field at the meeting Wednesday night
to 8. F. Tu Bots. who will begin work as
M-n as the students leave for the summer
vacation. The work of sodding the field
will cost about pv0 and has been under
consideration for several months, but lack
of funds has tied the athletic board's har.ds
until now, although a total of several
thousand dollars was realized from the
foot ball season.
A much larger space than the regular
gridiron will be sodiled An area nearly
OiO yards long and 100 yards wide, and in
cluding all of the space on the field, will
be carpeted with grass. Nearly all of the
other colleges have had sedded fields for
practice, thua eliminatint injuries, but the
Cornhuskers have never had one.

Minnesota will be host to the guests of
the eleventh annual conference track meet
on Northrop fie'd. Friday and Saturday of
this week. The conference is composed of
eight middle west universities and has in
vited ten others to enter teams In the an
nual games. The events will be those cus
tomary on the track and In the field.
Track and field games are the oldest of
all sports and are Indulged In by every
civilized country. They are the only form
of athletics which have the same standards
the world over and in which local records
can be accurately compared. Once every
four years the Olympic games are held,
usually In some European country, and
to these games are sent the finest athletes
that the Individual countries can develop.

The conference meet, now held annually.
Is the Olympic of the west. No other
gathering of athletes is comparable to it.
either for numbers or ability. Many of
the men who will be seen in action cn
Northrop field the last two days of this
week are of Olympic caliber and are al
ready training for the Olympic to be held
in 1912. The men coming to Minnesota
are the pick of the west. They have been
selected after a competition sometimes ex
tending over several years snd come to
Minneapolis because they can run Just a
little faster than anyone else, or can Jump
a little higher or farther, or can htave
standard weights a few feet farther.
Of the men who will compete on
Northrop Geld on Friday and Saturday
afternoon, three are coming to Minnesota,
with the stated intention of breaking con
ference records and one hopes to set a new
world's record. In addition to these in
dividual stars, the Chicago relay team has
stated that It .Intends to try for a new con
ference rrlay record and. If pot-s ble, to set
a new mark for the world.

Baker, star distance man of Oberlln col

he lowered the records for the quarter

fine his attention to the half mile Satur
day in the hope of breaking his own record
and setting a mark which will not be low

record in the half is i:56. An unknown
runner from the University of Missouri
has announced that he will go after tha
record set by Davenport In the quarter
