Way back when the Western Confer-
ence track and field championshipsI
were held for the first time., in 19001
flat, Michigan athletes romped away
with major honors and Illinois was
not so far behind.
Now for the pa1st 26 0old1yearIs
SMichigan and Illinois haive been
shooting -off most of file Big 'ten
fireworks, with only an occasional
Iflare fromi Iowa- or Wisconsin' orl
Chicago. And oat Friday and Sat-

verifies and Indians wiill provide1

Wisconsin, and Ohio State eon-
Sceded a good outside chane; zwithl
their coupIle of sky-rockets and
pin wheels.
Coach Stephen J. Farrell is escort-
ing the largest squad, of performers
he has ever nominated to make the
trip, obviously not wishing to miss out
on any of those one and two point
rewards offered to spur on mediocre
trackmen into becoming fourth and
fifth lace winners.
Capt. Phil Northrop , Tuc'k iHe,
ter, Jack Lovet~te, D~on Cooper, and
T~ed Jlornberger are just a few of
the X~aize and ]lne's extremely
wel-balanced troupe and should
average well over six points apiece
-and added to these.. Ketz, Las-
ser, Ohheiser, Monger, Lonmont,
Tarbill, Jones, Campbell, Prout,
and Schravesand should raise the
grand total 111) to anywhere from
43 to 62 odd points, which is quite
sufficient for all practical par.
Hester, that sterling., little Wolver-
ine sprinter, will try to play the role
of rabbit in what should turn out to
be a thrilling hare and hound race in
the dashes. The whole pack will be
let loose to attempt to overtake this
f rabbit who ran a dead heat with, an-
other Michigan man, Vic Leschinsky,
last year.
There will be Kriss, tihe Buck-
eye; Everingham, the Hlawkeye;
Hlermanson, the Wildcat; Smith,
the Badger; O'Shields, the G~oph-
er; and Pepper, the Hoosier, all
after the diminutive star. All have

amore Than 800 Will
Enter National Open1
Tourney This Season
According to anl announcement of
the United States Golf association,t
more than 800 entries for the oftent
championship of the United States i
have been made, over a 100 more than t
last year, when mor~e golfers entered
the tournament than. ever before.
The competition this year is likely
tbe keener than ever before, because
of the brilliant field enteredl. Every
good American pro except Al Wat-
rous, all the first flight amateurs ex-,
cept Jess g'weetser, who will be un-
able to, compete because of illness, and
in addition the ten professionals on
England's Ryder cup team, will have
a try for the title.
Of the entries, 60 will compete in
the finals at the Oakmont club, Pitts-
burgh, without playing in the sec-
tional qualifying rounds, while 110 {
out of the other 740 players will be
chosen in the district meets.
Bobby Jones, present champion, will
defend his title over the course on
which Herron defeated him for the
amateur championship in 1.919. The
course will measure about 7000 yards
from the back tees, and this is cal-
culated to favor Jones because of his
long and accurate wooden play.
PORTLAND.--The Portland club ofl
the New E~ngland league recently ob-
tained Catcher James Knox of the
Boston Red Sox on an option.

,Western Conference coaches will
gather at Madison where the Big Ten
track championships will be decided
Ithis week end to agree upon playing
dates for the 1928 football season.
Opposing teams have already been
selected by the various coaches, this
having been done last November when
a slate of contests through the 1930
gridiron campaign was drawn up. At
that time it was agreed that the exact
dates would be left open to be chosen
one year in advance. This decision was
reached in order to allow the placing
on the schedule of non-Conference,
At the same time the football coach-
es will be discussing their problems
tile basketball mentors are expected
to ratify the rotating schedule for
the court teams.
IDouble headers are desired by the
basketball leaders, Put after last year's
Northwestern and Michigan return
gamnes in football with rivaV oppon-
ents, it is not unlikely that some ac-
tion will be taken to prevent the re-
currence of this sort of schedule mnak-
ing in the future.
The faculty committee of the Big
Ten will also hold its' annual session
at Madison, Friday' and Saturday,
while the athletic' directors and Maj.
Sohn L. Griffith, athletic commissioner,
will confer tomorrow and Friday.
