ernoon in Waterman gymnasium's
boxing room following the first call
for tryouts for the boxing sqaud.
Coach Sullivan was pleased with
the number of men that appeared in
answer to the first call and gave some
con-pliments to the men as they went
through their work.
First Show Next Semester
It is planned to have the men box,
shadow box, skip the rope, do road
work, and calisthentics as well as
punch the bag from now on until the
time for the first boxing show, which
will be held in Waterman gymna-
sium some time after the start of the
second semester, according to the
plans of Coach Sullivan.
F.red with enthusiasm over the first
turnout, Coach Sullivan is hoping to
see more than 50 men answer the
call before the end of the week. All
that he is asking from the tryouts is
that they report to him daily and let
mi: know that they are getting in
trim, because every man must be in
ood condition before he will be al-
lowed to crawl through the ropes the
last of February. Former experience
at boxing is not necessary, according
to Coach Sulivan, and the selections
tha~t are to be made from the candi-
dates will be based entirely upon the
ability and science that is displayed
in Waterman gymnasium during the
daily workouts under the direction of
he veteran trainer.
Should Start at OnceI
It is also urged by Coach Sullivan
that those men who are contemplat-
ng entering the Intramural boxing
ournament get over to the gym and
'.egin to train a.t once as it has usual-
ly been the case that the man in the
est condition won his bouts in the
"ormnr tournaments. Coach Sullivan
5 glad to help anyone that wishes to
mprove his self defense.
Workouts for the aspirants for the
loxing team will continue daily un-
ler the tutelage of Coach Sullivan and

I want to give 50
to deserving colegestudent
WENTY years ago Iwas a stu-
dent working my way through
the University of Wisconsin.
There were only three jobs which
One man ran the college paper and
made some money.
Every other man had to wait on
table or collect laundry.
I often wondered why some real
business man did not give deserving
college students an Opportunity to
make some money in their leisure
One or two did, but the job was al-
ways that of selling books from door
to door. I never considered that to
be a real job.
Nearly every big university and
college in the country is now maintain-
ing a school of business administration.
Every student in that department
of the institution will have to know
something about selling.
I have made up my mind to give an
opportunity to any number of stu-
dents who care to take advantage
a few hundred thousand of them are
The open sport models are just
coming into vogue. Every college
student knows someone who is going
to buy an automobile of some kind.
The Jordan Motor Car Company
will pay $5000 in prizes to those col-
lege students who show the best re-
sults as salesmen between the first
day of January, 1923, and the first
day of September, 1923.
In addition, the Jordan Company
will pay a cash commission to every
student who actually assists in sell-
ing a motor car.
We are not advocating the pur-
chase of motor cars by students ac-
tually attending college. We are
simply giving to the students in these
institutions an opportunity to make
some money to assist in paying their
expenses in ensuing years.
Prizes are as follows:
First prize, $2000 to the man or
woman who succeeds in bringing to
us the largest number of prospective
purchasers who actually buy Jordan

and a desire to pay a portion or all of
his college expenses by doing a little
work in leisure hours, can make
enough money to accomplish this re-
In my opinion, the greatest busi-
ness in the world is that of transpor-
tation. Because the demand for mo-
tor cars exceeds the supply, an auto-
mobile is the easiest thing in the
world to sell.
