Hoyt of Grinnell Breaks World's Mark
for 220-Yard Distance o
Curved Track,
Des Moines, Iowa, April 22.-The
best four-mile relay team which Mich-
igan has yet produced was but good
enough to finish a bad second to the
veteran Wisconsin outfit in this after-
noon's seventh annual Drake classic.
Chicago finished close behind the Wol-
verines, with Iowa in the fourth notch.
Captain "Hal" Smith, the only other
Michigan entry, found himself in fourth
position at the end of the invitation
220-yard dash. Hoyt of Grinnell led
the field from the gun. He was clock-
ed the distance in 21.2 seconds.'
Coaches Farrell of Michigan, Stagg of
Chicago, and Gill of Illinois said after
the meet was over that Hoyt's time
establishes at new world's record in,
this distance for a curved track.
Hoyt was timed in the invitation spe-
cial event by an electric timing device,
as well as by stop watches. He was
favored somewhat by a slight wind be-
hind his back, however. This may
have a strong effect on determining
whether his mark will stand.
,.Behind Hoyt came Hohman of Illi-
nois, Shearer of Drake, and Smith of
Michigan. Each of these men finished
under 22 seconds, while all seen en-
tries in thiseventhcame in less than
1-5 second slower than the first quar-
Hoyt's wonderful showing of today
stamps him as being the most likely
runner in his distance in present in-
tercollegiate competition. He show-
ed that he had worked to good ad-
vantage in the warmer Iowa climate,
and in this respect seemed to have an
edge over his rivals, which probably
helped him more than a little.
Murphy carried the baton first for1
the Wolverines in the four-mile re-
lay. After leading the field for three-
fourths of the distance, the Michigan
man seemed to heve shot his blt. He
passed the stick to Ufer 50 yards be-,
hind the Wisconsin runner. Ufer,
then allowed Bennish to gain 35 more
yards before he reached the full dis-
tance, and was relieved by Donnelly.
Schardt of the Badgers put himself
200 yards in the lead of the Maize
and Blue runner, before he passed the
baton to Harvey, the wonderful anchor
man. Before the last exchange from n
Donnelly to Carroll, Harvey gained 20
more yards before Carroll got started.
By this time Chicago was also in the
lead of the Wolverines, and Harvey
had lapped Sellers of Indiana. Carroll
shot around the track as soon as he
had possession of the baton, and also
succeededsin lapping the Hoosier ma.
In the last 200 yards, Carroll passed
the Chicago entry, and had gained 30
yards on the easy going Harvey, but
the Wolverines finished a bad second,
170 yards behind the Wisconsin team.
The time for the relay was 18 minutes,
3 2-5 seconds, which is 3-5 second fast-
er than the same school made last
German Public is Optimistic
Berlin, April 22.-Pessimism which

was evident yesterday in German of-
ficial circles, today turned to opti-
mism when the American submarine
note was published. The text of the
note as given out by the official news
agency, became known to the German
people for the first time and discus-,
sion developed the fact that the differ-
ences between the two governments
can be patched up with satisfaction to
all concerned.

Kaiser Discuss Note
Washington, April 22.-President
Wilson will confer with Senator Stone
of the Senate Foreign Relations com-
mittee at 8:00 o'clock Monday evening.
It is said the conference will be on
"general international affairs." Lit-
tle hope that Germany would immedi-
ately accede to the American submar-
ine demands was apparent here today
A statement of Admiral von Hozen-
dorff, German admiralty chief, fur-
nished the state department with the
first definite information on the Ger-
man official attitude. The conclusion
was drawn by officials that the pro-
posed modifications and the sternness
of the American demands offered the
only path of avoiding a diplomatic
break. It is indicated officially that
this government will leave to Ger-
many the question of whether she
can conduct warfare, making it ef-
fective, without violating internation-
al law.
