Nation's Best Teams Threaten
Marks; Sentman, Rodgers
Run for Indians.





Athletes from all parts of the
country will assemble in the arm-
ory at Champaign this afternoon
and tonight to battle for the cham-
pionships of one of the best track
meets in the country, the annual
Illinois Relays.
Teams from every school of the
Big ten, all of the Big Six, and
many unaffiliated institutions will
add to the picturesque scene of 945
track stars from 84 different insti-
tutions struggling for supremacy.
From the east comes Pittsburgh
and Pennsylvania while the west
is represented by Texas and New
Records Endangered.

Entries for Coach Let Philbin's
forthcoming boxing show are cor-
cpleted and every one of the eight
weights is well represented with
talent. Drawings for the matches
will be made Tuesday afternoon, a;
day before the card is to be run {
off, so no man in any of the weights1
will be aware of his opponent until
the eve of the semi-finals.
These preliminary bouts will be ,
part of the second annual intra-
mural open house event and the
finals will come on the following
Saturday, the 22nd, with a show ofj
its own.
Many Men Entered.
Galoup and Toper are the entries
in the 112 pound class and Yuen
and Azen are scheduled to meet in!
the 118 pound match. Custer, Oak-J
ley, McBride and Curry will fight
to determine the finalists in the
126 pound weight. Wayland, Guth-'
rie, Hatchman, McElwain and last
year's champion, Woodward, will
meet in the 135 lightweight class.
Due to the size of some of theu
fields of entry two' bouts will havek
to be fought in some of the classes
on open house night. Puerner, Kir-
by, Heim, Knapp, and Anderson will
clash in the welterweight division.a
In the middleweight class the en-I
tries include Otto, Martzowka, La-c
pin, Trometer and Starwas. Otto, s
the champion in the 175 pound
class last year has trained down
to meet the middleweight require-
ments and will seek another crown.!
Slater Looks Good.
The 175 pound lightheavy class
includes Bauss, Ruegnitz and Chit- w
tendon. In the heavyweight semi- h
finals Greeson, Hewitt, Auer, last t
year's runner up, and Slater will.
meet. Slater is a big rangy Negro y
packing plenty of punch and is be- u
ing watched with interest. All of s
the contestants for the various i
crowns are down to weight and the i t
wealth of fine boxers promises to g
make the final event a fast show.,

It is expected that several world's
records will be seriously threatened
tonight if not shattered completely,
with most of the stars from the
meet of last year entered as well
as many promising newcomers. The
Illini will have two world record
holders entered in the 75 yard high
hurdles with Lee Sentman and Bob
Rodgers slated to try' for a new
mark in that event. These team-
mateshold the fastest time for the
hurdle event with :09.4.
The relays will probably furnish
the most stirring entertainment of
the evening with champions of last
year entered in both the two mile
and medley, events. In the univer-
sity mediley relay Ohio State, But-!
ler, Chicago, Purdue, Iowa State,
Notre Dame, and Inidiana are in
the front ranks of the contenders
for the title.I

compete in this event for-the first
time in several years, while the No-
tre Dame steppers are expected to
play a prominent part in it as well.
Michigan has teams entered in
the mile and medley relays tonight
besides men slated to appear in
several of the individual events
which are scheduled to be run off.
