Northwest is reputed to be strong, but does not boast a record as glistening as St. John's. The big meet opens this morning at 11 o'clock. Corinth's conflict is the third on the programme. Kavanaugh, Kentucky's Class A fltlist, apparently is in as tough a spot as was eormtn. ine xeuuw-jackets drew Waterloo, N. Y., for 11 o'clock Wednesday morning and no guardian angel has seen fit to interfere. The New Yorkers hail from a town of less than 3.000 population, but have won nineteen out of twenty-one struggles this season. Two of the plavers are regarded as the most outstanding athletes in their section of the State and have been signed for tryouts with the Washington Senators. They are "Red" McDonald, forward, who has amassed 305 points for individual scoring honors in New York, and Bordner, guard of all-State caliber. Bordner is a pitcher of great repute in his State. The team left for Chicago Sunday with a send-off as inspiring and as noisy as the welcome given by isui The fastest speed he was able to attain after the motor trouble developed was 149 miles.

Low tide tomorrow-occurs about 3:15, but he probably would be able to make his trials an hour or ah hour and a half before that time. Don sent his machine bouncing along the course at a speed of 178 miles an hour on his first trial today and then came bac'v at 180. to return a short time later at 186. Despite the rou?h -rh. Don p 'irently had little difficulty in keeping the giant car under control. Don admitted after his first three runs that the beach was in no condition for a record-breaking attempt, but said he wanted to make additional trials in an effort to learn just what adjustments were necessary. Ideal weather conditions prevailed for the trials today, a warm sun beat down strongly on the course and the visibility was good. Hundreds of spec tators lined the entire 9-mile course and the grandstand was filled. Don's sister.

Pyle, Chattanooga, Tenn., who will direct all Transylvania College athletics during the next school year, announced that spring football training in the Pioneer camp would start next Monday afternoon, April 7. Coach Pyle, who succeeds James A. Elani as head of Transy varsity football, said he would be assisted during the spring session by Ed Hess, former Ohio State guard, who is now head line coach at Virginia Military Institute, Lexington, Va. Hess was an All-American in 1925 and was a strong contender for the same berth in 1926. That year, however, he lost his berth on the mythical team to Bernie Shively. Illinois, who is now hea dline coach at the University of Kentucky under Head Coach Harry Gamage. The new Transylvania mentor has just returned to his home in Tennessee after spending three weeks at V. M. I., where he assisted in the spring football training there. Coach Pyle was formerly director of athletics, head basketball and track coach at V. M. I. for three years. In his letter Coach Pyle said he expected to arrive in Lexington Sunday, April 6. and that Hess would follow j him, reaching the Transylvania cam pus either April i or e.

By NICK ALTROCK. Special to The Courier-Journal. Somewhere South, March. 31. I see Babe Herman finally signed up with Brooklyn. That makes him the last Robin of the spring training season. Babe and Shires were holding out for $25,000 a year. But when Babe saw what the Great One signed for, Babe reached for a fountain pen before the bottom dropped out of the market. Fifteen grand a year isn't at all bad. even if you have to play in Brooklyn to get it. This is sure a bad year for holdouts, when there are more wolves than there are doorsteps. The way salaries have been knocked down this spring, the magnates could jive the bootleggers tips on cutting. Mrs. Haynes; Miss Wattles plays Miss Orcutt. One of the day's surprises was the fact that Miss Martha Parker of New York, former New Jersey champion and one of the favored players, failed to qualify. Her 93 left her in the second division.

March 31 UP) Show ing perfect figures for the first two rounds of the $5,000 Southeastern Open Golf Tournament here. Bobby Jones tonight led the field of nearly 100 golfers with his 144 and showed a four-stroke lead over his rival. Hor-ton Smith. It was the second meeting of the year for Jones and Smith. A gallerv of 2,000 followed them through two rounds over the difficult par-72 hill course at the Country Club. Smith beat the Atlanta' golfing barrister bv one stroke in their battle at Savan nah in February. Had "Calamitv Jane" been functioning smoothly, Jones would have had an even- greater lead over the field. With few ex ceptions his drives were lone and straight and his approach shots were true, but he missed more than a dozen putts of varying distances. On j Totals 383 D. Weils 187 !j.

Incorporated New York, March 31 (P) Prospects for a dull market among the cauliflowers rose sharply today with every indication that business at the same old turnstiles will be brisker than ever this summer. As an addition to the programme including the heavyweight title fight, June 12. at the Yankee Stadium between Jack Sharkey and Max Schmeling. Madison Square Garden paired Sammy Mandell, lightweight champion from Rockford, 111., for a fifteen round title test against Al Singer, sensational Bronx youngster, in the same ball yard. July 17. Singer signed the papers today and agreed to take 124 per cent of the receipts as his wages. Mandell, who trounced Jimmy McLarnin in his last championship battle here, accepted the match some time ago. He will receive the champion's Z1V2 'per cent. In signing today Singer registered his confidence in his ability to beat Ignacio Fernandez, Filipino winger, in the Garden Friday night. The last time Singer tangled with the brown-skinned veteran, Fernandez shocked the cauliflowers by knocking out Young Al in three rounds. Since then Singer has come back in sparkling fashion with a steady string of knockouts. The Garden outdoor schedule also calls for a welterweight tussle between Jackie Fields, the 147-pound king from Los Angeles, and Jimmy McLarnin, Celtic clouter, who whipped Young Jack Thompson hre last Friday night. This match will be saved for August. Somewhere in the earlv summer the Garden plans a flyweight title test between Midget Wolgast, recognized here as the 112-pound ruler, and Frankie Genaro. Kid Chocolate will be matched either with "Bat" Battalino, the featherweight title-holder, in a 126-pound title scrimmage, or with some crack lightweight. A light heavyweight or a middle-weight championship bout may be reserved for September when Victorio Campolo may get a chance to test the heavyweight greatness of Primo Camera, the home-run hitter of the distant spaces.
