Special Conference at Chicago
April 18th Will Take up
N.C.A. Dispute.
CHICAGO, Mar. 20.-(j)-It's the
Big Ten's next move in its "friend-
ly dispute" with the North Central
Association of Colleges and Sec-
ondary Schools over athletic sov-
Fai-ing to make satisfactory head-
way yesterday on the association'F
convention floor, flig Ten chiefs to-
day planned to proceed with their
special conference in Chicago April
18 to determine just what attitude
the conference should ta'.e.
Survey Starts It.
The dispute was precipitated sev-
eral weeks ago when several inves-
tigators came to Northwestern Uni-
versity and asked the university to
co-operate with them in an ath-
letic survey at that institution.
Northwestern officials, including
President Walter Dill Scott, refused/
to lend such co-operation and asked
the North Central group by what
right it had to make investigations
of a Big Ten school.
At the North Central convention
yesterday, two presidents of Big Ten
schools, President Scott and Presi-
dent Edward C. Elliott of Purdue.,
personally defended the conference
and challenged the right of the
North Central association to med-
dle with the conference's athletic
affairs. Just when everything had
seemed peaceful and the matter
about to be forgotten, President.
Elliott moved that the convention
strip its board of review of power
to act in the Northwestern case.
A lively debate resulted between
President Elliott and George V.
Zook, president of Akron College
and secretary of the association's
commission on institutions of high-,
er learning, and the motion was
N. g. A. Will Fight.
Although the board of review,
which recommends which univers-
ities, colleges and high schools
shall be accredited within the con-
fines of its territory in 20 states,
agreed to meet with the Big Ten
leaders April 18 to thrash out the
dispute, the fact that the conven-
tion refused to handcuff the board
of its power which could place
Northwestern on the association's
blacklist-was regarded as a strong.

When the baseball fortunes of
the Philadelphia Athletics are being
discussed it seems to be the gen-
eral concensus of opinion thatl
Mickey Cochrane, brilliant catcher,
is the man most responsible for
the success of that club. Yet no
man can be given the entire credit
for the rise of the World's Cham-
pions, especially when such other
players as "Lefty" Grove, George
Earnshaw, Al Simmons, and Jimmy
Foxx, are included on the same
Simmons has spent many years
now in the regalia of the Athletics,
while Earnshaw, Grove, and Coch-
rane were far from young in ex-
perience when they joined the club.
Of the five players mentioned, only
Jimmy Foxx actually grew up on
the Philadelphia team, and onlyI
Foxx can be said to have developed,
right from the start, under the
guidance of Connie Mack.
Strong at Bat.
Foxx is one of those typical ball
players who have come into so
much prominence in recent years,
since the increased mania for
slugfests and mighty home run
-louts began. True such players as
"Babe" Ruth, "Goose" Goslin, Rog-
ers Hornsby and many othersj
were hitting the ball far andI
wide before Foxx ever started, but
he was one of the first to be picked
up by a big league club merely for
his slugging alone.
Since his start in the majors
about six years ago, at the tender
young age of 16, Foxx has turned
out to be not only a slugger of the
first degree, but a first baseman
of no mean ability as well. He is
still rather awkward in the field,
but he gets around well enough to
warrant his retaining the initial
sack position for the A's merely
because of his slugging.
Listed as Catcher.
Originally Jimmy was a catcher,
,but with such receivers as Coch-
rane and Cy Perkins already on the
club he had no chance to break in
at that position. From there he
shifted to third base, and at last

been tested yet, since in its one
race, the baton was dropped on the
first leg. It is doubtful if it can

proach that time.
Captain Elmer, the best middle

with a broken ankle bone. He won

T liE whole country is talking about the throat-
easy mildness and the prime freshness of Camel
Cigarettes in the new Humidor Pack.
Tlie above chart prepared by the Pittsburgh Testing
Laboratory tells you why.
Please examine it carefully. It is an unfailing guide
to cigarette selection and enjoyment.
As you can quickly see by the three upper curves on
this interesting chart, cigarettes that lack the protec-
tion of the Humidor Pack lose their moisture rapidly
from the day they are manufactured.
And day by day as this moisture disappears, the
smoke from these cigarettes becomes harsher, hotter,
more unkind to the smoker's throat.
Not so with Camels!
The Humidor Pack is moisture proof and sealed air-
tight at every point. It protects the rich, flavorful

aroma of the choice Turkish and Domestic tobaccos
of which Camels are blended.
Make these tests yorself
It is so easy to tell the difference between parched dry
cigarettes and fresh prime Camels that it is no wonder
everybody is reaching for a fresh cigarette today..
Your fingers identify stale, dried-out tobaccos at once.
While a Camel is flexible and pliant.
Your ears can tell the difference too. For a dust-dry
cigarette crackles under pressure.
But the real test is taste and there is simply no com-
parison between the rich mildness of a Camel and the
hot, brackish smoke from a stale, dry cigarette.
Switch to Camels just for today then leave them
tomorrow if you can.
