ES MEN HARD
UT; HOPES TO
Coach Farrell and his crew of track-4
sters are working hard for the Con-i
ference indoor meet to be held in1
Patten gymnasium at Evanston next i
Although it is generally conceded by
most of the sport critics that Mich-
igan's wartime track team will take
first place in the struggle, Steve is not;
letting his men off with light practice1
sessions. Jumping pits have'been con-1
structed inside the outdoor track next
to the gymnasium to enable the field
event men to get used to a dirt floor,
which the Northwestern gym has.
Steve said yesterday that while not
all the men who competed last Satur-
day would go to Evanston, the men
who were likely to make any points
were sure to be taken on the trip.
162 Conference Men Entered
Conference teams have entered 152
men. Wisconsin leads the list with
89 entries, but the quality of her ath-
letes is little known. Andrews is the
best man on the Badger squad and he
will probably give Johnson a hard
race. Golden, a miler, is considered a
good man rin heis event,
Chicago follows in the list with 31
men entered. Coach Stagg says that
the showing of the Maroon team will
depend a lot' upon whether Otis, who
is in the service, will be allowed to
run. Otis is one of the best milers
in the Big Ten, and with him in the
going, the Windy City coach believes
that he will be able to arrange his
men so that they will be able to garn-
er more points. The Maroons are ex-
pected to place well in the 440 yard
runas they have two fast runners in
Curtis and Feuerstein both of whom
are able to do the distance in 52 sec-
Only Six Gophers on List
Only six track men are entered from
Minnesota and the Gophers are not
likely to upset any of the dope with
the squad they bring to the meet as
track has not been going very well at
the'North Star state this year.
Illinois will take a strong bunch of
men to the contest having about the
same number of athletes entered as
Michigan has. Reports from Urbana
say that Carroll, their star sprinter,
is expected to take first place in the
50 yard dash. Another first place man
of that institution is Lang, Coach
Gill's all-around star. He is a vault-
er, being able to do close to 12 feet in
this event, and a good man in the
jumps. Weiss, their shot putter, can
throw the pill better than 41 feet and
seems the likely winner in the weight
event although the way Baker heaved
the shot last Saturday against the
Maroons will make his position rather
unsecure. Kreidler is starring in .the
jumps and the quarter mile.
Northwestern is sending 26 to the
meet but the Purple athletes have not
had enough competition so far this
season to get a line on the team. Out
of Purdue's 10 men only Jordan, a shot
putter, is well known in Conference
circles. Indiana has six men entered.
WHITE SOX TRAIN IN WRECK .
ON WAY TO TRAINING CAMP
Mineral Springs, Tex., March 19.-
Members of the Chicago White Sox
on. the way to their training camp
at Mineral Springs, Tex., narrowly
escaped with their lives when the
special train which was carrying
them to the Springs left the rails.
The wreck made the men lose their
first practice and the superstitious
among them think the loss of this
year's pennant. They seem to think
that the bad luck intends to follow
them throughout the year. No ser-
ious damage was done to anything ex-
cept~the train and the track and the
men started practice immediately on
their arrival in the camp.
Buffalo Firm Wants Grad Engineers
Graduate mechanical engineers are
wanted by the American Radiator
company for experimental work in
thermal radiation at its laboratory in
Buffalo, New York. Exemption from
the draft is one of the requirements
of the position. Students are asked
to send their applications, together
with a recommendation from the head
of their department, direct to the Am-
Pian Ranitnreomnanv at Buffalo.
Grover Alexander, the famous pitch-
er now owned by the Chicago Cubs,
must either sign his contract within
the next two days or leave the train-
ing camp at Pasadena, Cal.
The great finger, who was sold by
Philadelphia to -the Cubs during the
winter for the sum of $50,000, has re-
fused to play with Manager Mitchell's
organization unless he is paid a.bonus
of $10,000. President Weegham has
not seen his way clear to give the
big fellow the money so Alexander is
still in the hold-out class.
When the Cubs left for their train-
ing camp, the pitcher joined them, ex-
pecting to come to an -agreement in a
short time with the officials. He has
turned down an offer of $5,000 bonus
and $12,000 a year, and as yet no com-
promise has been reached. Alexan-
der, during the time that he has been
with the club, has been living at the
expense of President Weegham and
doing no work. The Cub boss is get-
ting tired of feeding him and Manager
Mitchell notified him that it will be
necessary for him to make a decision
within the, next 48 hours. He must
either sign for the $5,000 and the sal-
ary that goes with it or return to his
home in Nebraska.
LUNDGREN. CUTS MORE
NUMBER OF CANDIDATES AGAIN
REDUCED; NUMBER 30
Coach Lundgren has reduced his
baseball squad to 30 men, slashing off
several more hopefuls after the prac-
tice yesterday afternoon in Waterman
.,Among the men cut were two pitch-
ers, and there are now but eight hurl-
ers on the squad. Most of these will
stick with the squad for several weeks
more, at least until they have had
more time in which to display their
Tommy Adams Called Home
Tommy Adams, candidate for most
any .place in the infield, was called
home last week end and has not as yet
returned. It is not known just exact
ly what forced Tommy to leave but
Coach Lundgren said he expected the
star player back in a short time,
Langenhan has been forced to absent
himself from practice because, of bad
teeth. The outfielder has been get-
ting his molars into shape.
Lundgren still refuses to guess
when the squad will be taken out-
doors. He declared that it was alto-
gether up to Ground Keeper Thomas
and when he gets the land into play-
ing condition, the Wolverine tossers
will "gambol on the green," for the
rest of the season. It is expected that
the move outdoors will be made soon.
Parsons Shows Up Well
Among the pitchers Lundgren is
working with, there are several on
whom the coach is banking heavily.
Ruzicka and Glen are expected to be
the stars of the hurling corps, but
there is a big battle on for the other
positions on this staff. Parsons, a
new comer, has been burning things
up. in the gymnasium and will be a
real contender. Parsons has a great
deal of stuff and the best control of
any man on the squad.
The squad as it now stands:

GOVERNMENT EXPECTS TO RAVE
450,000 SHIPYARD WORKERS
Washington, March 18.-With the
advent of the volunteer workers, the
government will have about 450,000
skilled men actually at work in ship-
yards. This shows what can be done
in a little over a year's time.
In 1916 the wage earners in steel
shipyards in the country numbered
43,582, while the men in wood ship-
yards numbered 1,380. On January
1, 1918, the steel shipyard workers
were 181,273 in number, while there
were 23,437 men at work in wood ship-
yards, or 204,710 altogether.

Have You Seen the New Gillettes
Specially Designed;for the Fighting Man?
THESE models were designed by members of the
Gillette Organization wlio have seen service with
the Colors and know what the soldier is up against.
Hundreds of officers and men are buying them--the
U. S. Service Set in metal case, and the new Khaki-
covered sets for Uncle Sam's soldiers and officers.
The Gillette is the one razor for the man who is do-
ing things--the one razor with world-wide use and
When a man wants new Blades he can get them at
any Post Exchange or Y. M. C. A. Hut -here in
America or Overseas.
Our Paris Office carries stocks-is constantly sup-
plying the American Expeditionary Forces. Gillette
Safety Razors and Blades on sale everywhere in
France, England, Italy and the Eastern battle fronts.
Thne Army of the United States
N0 aterIs Shaved Clean
o matter how a man shaved before he went into the Service, he is pretty sure to
come out of the war a Gillette user.
The first thing he'll note among his camp mates is that more of them are shaving
with the Gillette than with all other razors put together.
He'll see Gillette users in his squad lather up, shave clean, splash the soap off, tuck
the razor away, and be standing at attention in the inspection line-all In five minutes.
When he gets Overseas, everything is the 0I-
lette, from the left flank of the British line in
Belgium clear around through France and Italy
and on the battle fronts of the East.
Soon or kte, every man who is doing things
comes to' the Gillette. They belong together.
Ten million up and doing men all over the world
had discovered the Gillette before the war broke
out. The war simply made the Gillette prove
itself under extreme conditions-as no other
razor has or can.
It has thrown the spotlight on the Gillette
Blades-on the Gillette principle of No Strop-
ping-No Honing-on the Gillette idea of a
simple, compact shaving outfit, no strops or
hones to clutter up the kit-on the Gillette con-
tention that a man's daily shave should be an
incident and not a ceremony.
