TRACK MEN ANSWER
COACH'SFIRST CALLi
Coach Steve Farrell's initial call
for track men, issued last week, has
been answered by more than 60i men,
and all have been working during thej
last few days.
Prospects for a well balanced team'
are about the same as usual, with the
exception of the weight events, wherej
the material is more than scarce. TheI
field events are strong in most de_
partments, and the track events seem
to be up to the standard of the past
few years.
Thebaseball cage has been low ered
so that thb men may throw the discu~s
in the field house, and the shot put-
ters, the weakest part of the team,
are practicing behind the basketball

Captain Northrup reported for the

from him in three events, the javelin.,

is a sophomore, and in the long run
looks the best of the three.
With such men as Hestor in the
10 yard dash, Leshinsky in the 220,'
and Munger and Mueller in the 440,
Coach Pafrell is fairly well fixed in
the short dashes.
In the half mile, Hart, Likkert of
the, 1925 championship squad, and
Kelly and Monroe of the 1925 fresh-
men, seem to be the best. These four
also will probably make up the two
mile relay. Hart and Likkert were
members of the team that broke the
Drake relay record last year.
The milerun is the weakest of the
track events. Leonard is the one that
is drawing notice, but too much can-j
not be expected of him. He may be
in the mile relay, along with Valen-
tine and Munger, and a -man yet to
be named, but at the present writing
it is too early to decide.
The squad candidates will practice
daily until the start of the Christmas
vacation, and any weight men running
around the campus will be welcomed,
by Coach Farrell.

RECEIVES APPLAUSE
(By Associated Press)
ASHEVILLE, N. C., Dec. 8.-Com-
missioner K. M. Landis, told the Na-
tional Association of Professional
Baseball leagues today that "it makes
no material difference to me whether
I am re-elected commissioner of
baseball or not." Speaking vigorously
and interrupted often by outbursts of
applause, the commissioner said that
if he was re-elected he would try to
perform his duties with the "same im-
partiality I have tried to show the
past six years."
Commissioner Landis appeared be-
fore the body by invitation after it'
had gone on record' in an executive
session during the meeting as en-
dorsing him for re-election with no
curtailment of authority.
"I wish to thank you gentlemen,"
he said, "for your splendid support in
the difficult duties I have been called
upon to perform during the past six
years.
"In my dealings with baseball dur-
ing these past six years I have tried
to do what seemed to me the fair
thing for major leagues, for minor
leagues, and most of all for that great
unnamed part of the business-the
public.
"I warn you gentlemen that if I am
re-elected and it makes no ,material
difference to ine personally whether
I am or not, I shall continue to guard
the interests of that great unnamed
body. On it you depend for support
and I shall protect it in every way
humanly possible."
The commissioner spoke very rap-
idly and often seized President Sex-
ton's gavel and pounded on the table
for emphasis. The minor league own-
ers and managers greeted the speech
with loud applause and frequent
shouts of "attaboy Judge."

Hawkeye team.

This is Fewell's first year with the
varsity.
At Purdue, Coach Lambert is still
looking for a good forward to take
the place of George Spradling, high
scorer of last season, who was lost
by graduation. Other men who ,vere
lost include Harmeson, Neuman and
Cramer, all dependable men. How-
ever, a nucleus for a strong quintet
remains in "Cotton" Wilcox, star of
the Boilermaker grid team,,at floor

guard, and Wheeler, another letter
man, at forward. Wilson is ,another
guard of ability.
