Thirty years ago on May 18,I
1893, the first meet for a state high
school championship ever held in
the West took place at the fair
grounds in Champa'gn. The Uni-
versity athletic association, under
the guidance of E. K. Hall, now
chairman of the national commit-I
tee on football rules, sponsored the
The interscholastic event grad-
ually assumed such proportions
that it drew thousands of visitors
to the university each year. As
more people to view the events,
attempts were made to care for the
entertainment of the guests. As a
result the Interscholastic Circus
was started. This burlesque of a
real circus is staged entirely by
the students who rehearse their
acts for weeks in advance. They
perfect stunts, acrobatics, mili-
tary spectacles and individual
clown acts and prizes are offered
for the best stunts in each group.
Two managers are selected each
year from the junior workers byI
the athletic board of control.
These men issue calls for sopho-
more assistants and from this
group the junior assistants are
chosen for the following year.
This summary of the Illinos annual
Interscholastic Circus as given to The
Daily by a staff correspondent of The
Daily Illini. More details of the plan
will be presented as will be the or-

opening event in Yost Field House, for
the purpose of raising funds to com-1

Illinois plan is perhaps somewhat
more elaborate than the one which

II. Swimming is adapted to ev- i
eryone. Babies love it. Invalds;-
grow convalescent on it. Women --
excel at it. The most vigorous ath-
letes find in it a supreme test of
their power. Merely by varying the
duration of the swim and the force
of the strokes swimming can pass

III. Swimming is the only sport
that cleanses as it exercises. Froni

emerges hot and dusty; from swim-

IV. Swimming is pleasant. N -o---.-

no one requires the impulse of col-
lege rivalry or newspaper fame to
enjoy it, as is sometimes the case
n hard-driven "major sports."
V. Swimming is cheap. All tha
is needed, is a pool and a change of
water in it. No golf courses or
marble stadia to establish; no ap-
paratus, equipment or elaborate cos
tuming is required. 91 f ..cc

form that any working man can in-

of conservatism creeping into labor
platforms. The American Federation

any extreme radicalism. Labor no
longer goes about with an unkempt

overalls and working gloves with
pride. The outlook is encouraging.
