Several Members Of Red And White
Teant Are Finest Athletes
In The East
Coach Jack Mfoakley, of Cornell, has
a a well balanced team to match up
against the invading Wolverine track
team Saturday at Ithaca. The Red
and White team includes as its mem-
bers some of the finest 4jiletes in
eastern collegiate circles.
Moakley's crew is especially strong
in the sprints, with Captain Russell
and Goodwillie the star performers.
The former is the eastern intercolleg-
iate champion in the 75 yard sprint,
having won this event at the annual
indoor intercollegiate track meet held
recently at New York. In scoring his
win Russell beat out such well knowni
f sprinters as Frank Hussey, of Boston
college, and Miller, of Harvard, for-
mer title holder and on a basis of past
ime performances the Cornell cap-
tian is favored over Hester in the
sprints Saturday.
The mile relay run promises to be
one of the closest and most interest-
ing of the meet. The Michigan team
composed of Hernnstein, Oldheiser,
Mueller and Feinsinger is one of the
best in the Middle West. The indoor
Conference meet held at Northwest-
ern,Ahe Wolverines finished second to
Iowa losing out by a few inches aft-
er leading all the way. The Red and
White relay team with Fairbanks,
Captain Russell, Goodwillie and Wer-
ly ran the distance in 3:30 2-5 in a
dual meet against Yale. The Cornell
team also finished second in the mile
relay race at the indoor intercolleg-
Time Trials For'
Cornell Meet
ToBe Held Today
Time trials will be held this after-
noon by Coach Farrell in the high ,
jump, 880 yard and mile runs, to de-
termine what men in these events
shall make the Cornell trip this week-
Coach Farrell stated yesterday tat.
he intends to take to Ithaca all men
that have a chance of placing in the
events that are on the program. This
will make up a squad of about 24
Several of the Varsity track men
have been incapacitated for the past
few days, but most of them are at
present in good shape, Lasser, a
hurdler, has just recovered from a
case of grippe, and is again working
out with the squad. Callahan was
also laid up for several days with
grippe, but he too is in good shape
now. Leshinsky, stellar performer in
the ;slrints who did not compete in
the Conference meet because of ill-
ness, is still in a weak condition and
in all probabilities will not make the
Cornell trip.
Walter Johnson, Washington's vet-
eran hurler, who came close to gain-
ing immortal fame in the World
Series last year, but who lost out by
a hair when the elements went agaihst
him, is coming back this year.
After Walter had struggled through
that terrible seventh and eighth inn-
inlgs in the last game of the series
at Forbes field last year, critics and
fans were unanimous in their decision
that Johnson had pitched his last
game. But Walter is not convinced

that he is through, and so he has re-
ported to the training camp of the
Senatprs at Tampa and is slowly
working back into his last year's
In accordance with his plan which
he adopted last year Bucky Harris,
Washington manager, will not over-
burden Johnson with practice work-
outs, and has already excused himn
from the barnstorming tour which the'
Senators will take this year.
Charles Hoff, the Norwegian holder
of the world's pole-vault record, has
been invited to display his wares in
the University of Washington relay
carnival May 1.

Because of the present condi-
tions of the Ferry practice fields, I
candidates for the freshman ball
team will not swing into action1
until after the spring vacation.
It was expected that Coach
S Mather, who will direct the ac-
Itivities of the, freshman ball
team, would make an early call
for practice, but because of the I
I unfavorable condition of the field;
he.has postponed the first prac- E
Iftice drill until after the recess.
Purple Gridders
Ordered Out For
,Spring p''ractice
By Joseph Weiss
One hundred football men have
been ordered to report for spring
practice at Northwestern university,
by Coach Glenn Thistlethwaite. Ev-
ery man who expects to try out for
the team next fall is requested to par-
ticipate in the spring training.
The sessions will be held each aft-
ernoon under the direction of Coach
Thistlethwaite and a number of aids.
Tim Lowry, captain of last fall's
team, will help his former chief in
conditioning the men. Lowry will'
have charge of the candidates for the
center position. This job is expected
to be one of the big problems for the
Purple next fall.
Enthusiasm for ootball continues
to run high at Northwestern, follow-
ing the successful showing of the
team last fall and one of the largest
squa's ever to turn out for spring
drill is anticipated.
Ralph "Moon" Baker, captain-elect
of the squad, is busy rounding up the
men who are supposed to make a bidI
for the squad. Moon will spend most
of his time this fall in assisting Coach
Thistlewaite with the backfield candi-
dates. Freshmen especially will be
given intensive drill in carrying the
ball, blocking, and tackling.

Indiana Partisans
Elated Over New
Football Leader
Students, alumni, and close follow-
ers of Indiana university are highly
elated over the selection of Pat Page,
a former University of Chicago star
and until recently, director of ath-
letics at Butler college, to the head
football post.
Page succeeds "Navy Bill" Ingram
who resigned at the end of the 1925
season to accept a position as head
grid coach at the United States Naval
academy, his alma mater.
Indiana university has fared with
indifferent football success during the
past few years, but followers of the
Hoosier institution are convinced that
Page will develop a Western Confer-
ence football championship team in
the next few years.
While at Butler, Indiana's new lead-
er established quite an enviable rec-
ord as coach in basketball and foot-
ball. During his five years at Butler,'
Page's grid machines were victorious
in 32 conte43 out of 44, scoring 929
points to the opponents' 369. His
net quintets emerged winners 89 tin.3s
in 114 contests.
John McGraw, of the New York,
Giants, leads all managers in bpth
major leagues in the number of league
championships won, with ten pen-
nants to his credit.

Rain, which most of fandom abho-
was hailed yesterday by Coach ItaC,
Fisher, of Michigan's baseball s qu'adi,
as a welcome element. For while
the rain poured down outside and seit
the majority of students and towns
folk under shelter Coach Fisher sent
his ien through their customary
practice within the confines of the
field house, and at the same tim(
gloried in knowing that rain- brings
warm weather and fairer days and
takes the frost out of baseball dia,
Coach Fisher's men have practically
been untouched by the grippe, Lou::
Gilbert being the only candidate who
has been suffering from the symp-
toms of the malady. Gil Thorne, on&.
of the most promising candidates for
the pitching position, has been forced
to refrain from practicing for a few
days on account of an injured leg
Thorne had just recovered from al
sore pitching arm,; when he injured
himself in batting rpractice a-nd was
forced to extend his layoff.
"lar" Walters, a veteran pitcher
from last year's squad, was not out
for practice yesterday, but it is not
believed that his absence was due to
any serious illness.
