The two teams were recruited from semlpro players in Iowa recommended for tryouts with the Demons, but meat of the players could not swing a bat as the total of eighteen strikeouts In dicates. Mott of the athletes had not played for moru than a month and this no doubt made them ap- near morse than they really were. Tne contest was played unner trying conditions. It wss too chilly for baseball and the dia mond was soft, .nut tne major leaguers did their best to give the crowd a run for its money.

Announcement that (lie 1'nlver- slly of Iowa will begin const ruc tion or a spacious new stadium In the near future was received wllh an unrestrained eheer by one group which sits In at all of Iowa's home football games. Thai group Is msde up of newspaper men, who voice a fervent hon - hat Ik, naa, at.dtiam .lll kiln flinuiillll nil, inviUUV a press stand. Seldom have sports writers at tempted to cover a game under mote trying conditions than those which existed last Saturday at the ows-mmnesoia game. We do not know the exact num ber of persons who ran be accommodated in the layout which now serves as a press stand. We do know, however, that three men had to sit where two would have been none too eomfortsble. We also know that, there were probably 40 per cent more people jammed along the single bench than there were accommodations for. If there are as many newspaper men In this section as there were persons in the press box last Saturday, the tribe Is increasing fast. AVVOl'M'KH NKF.DF.D. Another thing, lowa has nrob- ably the only press stsnd In the Kig Ten which does not have an announcer. At Mlnnesola, at Northwestern, at Chicago in fact In every press stand the writer hns veiled an announcer Is always on the Job during big games, lie megaphones lo ihe snorls writers the name of the man who tarries the ball, tells who makes a spec tacular tackle, nil men the man ho fumbles or who Intercepts a pass, etc. Occasionally these announcements are superfluous, b;il rm nen one or noih or the leamsicepd Dunn, who died suddenly are strange to the newspaper men, such announcements are a . higj help. Without such assistance men who cover the games have no chance to analyse the play of the rlvsl team tbcv do well to thumb thrnuah their nrnarama Indent In nneraticn unttl time to check the number of thei""""1- .. man who was carrying the ball. THE XEW HTAOirM. Iowa needs a. new stadium and i it seems wise to plan accommoda-' Hons for from 60.000 to go, 000 ! fans. Newly paved roads brought many people to Iowa Cltv last ! Saturday who probably would have stayed at home had they been forced to drive on the old dirt roads. Additional patlng will be laid and will bring even more fans. These fana must be accommodated and the present dtands at Iowa field fall far short of the mark. But, Iowa needs a modern press stsnd even more than it needs a new stadium. And the problem of putting a normal man In a space about eight inches wide and expecting him to work with a typewriter or a telegraph instrument must be solved. And the manner of getting tickets to the men who actually eo?er the games might be remedied. Then, It is lo be hoped that the scribes mav enter the new press stand without first qualifying as contortionists. Kan tn Box filh k. New Vork. Oct. i!P Baby! Joe flans. Negro lightweight from!
