in a meet featured by several thril-
ling races and good marks in all

dividing first honors in the high

time in serious danger of being
outpointed by the local team.

of the day with 13 markers, while
Ketz wassecond with 10.kThe ver-
satile Gopher tied with his team

well, former counsel for the radio
commission, today told the Senate
Interstate Commerce commission.
Caldwell testified at the hearing
of the committee conducted on the
bill of Senator Couzens designed to
regulate radio, telegraph, telephone,
and cables in interstate transmis-
sion through a federal communica-

class who had turned out for the
final half of the traditional under-

captured the final event and the
necessary two points for their sec-
ond victory over the sophomores.
Preceding encounters in the spring
games had.been halfed by the riv-
al classes, but the rope tieing con-
test gave the freshmen a 4 1-2 to
2 1-2 win.
Outnumbering in large propor-
tions their immediate superiors,
the yearlings met little difficulty in
administering a decisive beating to
the sophomores. When the al-
lotted 15 minute period had ex-
pired, the class of '32 had tied and
penned some 50 sophomores, while
the second year men had but 16
opponents in their prison. The
only sophomores who escaped be-
ing roped were those who guarded

spree and the obstacle race, the
sophomores secured a slight ad-
vantage, evening the points after

race was a one point victory for
the second year class, while the
cane spree resulted in a half-point
for each of the opposing classes.

afternoon, the freshmen had se-
cured two points, while the sopho-
mores were awarded one for the
