A squad of 15 wrestlers which has
increased in the past three weeks
to 44 has been working out con-
sistently at the Intramurai Building
since the second week of school at
which time the equipment was dis-

Keen at the helm have been the
schedule for the Varsity mat pros-
Due to the lack of material in the
lighter weight divisions, Coach Keen
has announced that he would be glad
to have any light men interested in
wrestling come out for the squad. The
tentative Varsity squad includes all
of last year's letter winners, namely
John Speicher, 118 pounder, Earl
Thomas, 135 pounds, Paul Cameron

pounder. At the conclusion of the

Touch Football
League Starts
Season 'Today
Twenty-two teams have entered the
independent touch football tourna-
ment sponsored by the Intramura
Department which will start today.
The enthusiasm displayed for this
sport far surpasses any shown in the
five years of its existence. With at
least nine men op a team, there wil
be approximately two hundred boys
in the event.
The entries will be out to scalp the
D. D's who have won the champion-
ship for the past two seasos under
the leadership of Kunitz. This or-
ganization, which places teams in
nearly every sport, is again favored
to retain its crown.
All of the leading independent
teams on the campus will work for a
finalist berth as the winner and run-
ner-up will receive their quota of
points towards the All-Campus Inde-
pendent supremacy. The Jay Hawks,

Harrison tossed 12 passes in the
