Rehearsals Will Start Within Week
Plan Most Extensive Trip
Yet Undertaken

Amount Asked By Nurmi For
Expenses Claimed Exorbitant


Chicago, April 23.-(By A. P.)-
Paavo Nurmi, Finland's master runner
of the world, who startled America
with his record breaking on the board
track, the cinders and traveling the
railroads of the nation, is in a position
to set a few records in high finance
if he succeeds in getting his demands
for what his management regards as
expenses for racing.
The story back of Nurmi's financial
demands together with those of Willie
Ritola his Finnish running mate broke
today when Kenneth L. Wilson, di-
rector of athletics at Drake university,
declared he had refused to pay $1,500
for Nurmi and Ritola to engage in

Wilson characterized their demands
as exhorbitant and not within the
spirit of amateur rules.
The price of Nurmi's appearance at
the Drake relays, Wilson said, was
$1,000 while $500 was demanded for
Ritola's appearance.
Wilson said he has been asked to
pay Nurmi's expenses from New York
to Des Moines and thence to Finland
but that Nurmi was to engage in other
races elsewhere before his contem-
plated return to Europe in June. He
also said that $500 demanded for
Ritola was to cover Ritola's expenses
from New York to Des Moines and re-
turn but that Ritola was in Chicago
and not in New York, when the ne-
gotiations were abruptly halted.

Revision of S. C. A. Rules
Election of Officers.



After being under consideration for
several weeks, a new proposed con-,
stitution for the Student Christian as-
sociation was passed last night in
Lane hfall at the meeting of the
cabinet of the organization and will
be sent to the board of trustees for
final vote. The new constitution dif-
fers from the present one particularly
in the matter of membership and elec-
tion of officers.
The new constitution is expected to
pass the board of trustees so in all
probability the action of the Student
Christian association cabinet last
night will assure the adoption of a
new constitution to go immediately
into effect. The vote last night was
the culmination of several months
work by the constitution committee,
appointed by Perry Hayden, '25, presi-
dent of the Student Christian associa-

Dean Cooley Named Delegate to Tenth'

Action on the new stadium which
has been proposed for the University
was postponed for one month by the
Board of Regents at their April meet-
ing last night, due to the fact that
four members were absent. Regents
Victor M. Gore, Benjamin S. Han-
chett, Lucius L. Hubbard, and Walter
H. Sawyer were the members absent.
Two members of the Board in Con-
trol of Athletics were re-appointed, a

President Marion L. Burton was ap-
pointed, a number of gifts were ac-

made and leaves of absence granted,
and diverse other small business was
transacted at the meeting.
The Regents appointed a committee
consisting of Secretary Shirley W.
Smith and Dr. F. E. Robbins, assistant
to the President, to confer with the
special committee of the Alumni as-
sociation on a memorial for President
Burton. The alumni committee is made
up of Earl Babst, '93, '94L, of New

Thirty Booths Will Be Named in
Honor of Prominent Allied
Decorations fo rthe fifth annual
Military Ball to be held tonight were
installed in Waterman gymnasium
yesterday, setting up and furnishing
of the booths being the only work
not yet completed. The most radical
departure in the decoration scheme
for hte ball as contrasted with those
of previous years is manifest in the
improvised ceiling.
Hitherto the plan has called for
flags hung vertical from the rafters.
This year, however, the roof of the
gymnasium is completely obscured
by a ceiling composed- of alternate
strips of red, white, and blue, arched
in the center, anddescending to the
running track. A valance of maize and
blue hides the railing of the track,
while another valance surmountsrthe
lavender walls of the hall.
Thirty booths, each named for a
prominent allied general of the world
war extend completely around Wa-
terman gymnasium, with a booth for
chaperones at each end of the hall.
At the side of each booth stands a
staff bearing the flag of the nation
represented by that military leader.
The American flag is reserved for
places of honor.
Two orchestra stands, one on each
side of thegymnasium, break the
continuity of the line of booths. That
on the north side of the hall is dec-
orated to represent the deck of a
