PAGE FOUR CARROLL, OADVT HERALD, CARROLL, IOWA FRIDAY, APRIL 30, 19S7 Ten Trackmen Pointed for Medal Competion at Esthervill Hopes Riding High for 880 Relay Quartet Denison Team Feared in 440-Relay; Smith Ineligible Ten men o,f the Carroll high track squad will make up the Carroll entry in the Estherville Relays tomorrow at Estherville. More than three hundred contestants are expected to compete in the relays. Both Iowa and Minnesota prep school runners are entered. 1 Out of eight events in which Coach Floyd Ro/nbough expects to enter the Tiger trackmen, hopes for success are riding highest with the crack 880-yard relay team. The local 44 0 relay quartet will be another strong Tiger threat but a flashy Denison team will hold ihe advantage in this event. A serious setback to the Carroll squad was the loss of Paul Smith to the team because of jn- elegibility. Smith, who was one of the key men in the relay teams as well as a quarter miler, will be back with the squad next week. Don Conrad, another relay man, was also out of the lineup due to inelegibility. Coach Rombaugh announced today that the following squad would make the trip: Rust, D. Farrell, Minnich, Grundmeier, Buddin, McLaughlin, H a p p e, Lappe, Kisgen and Schleisman. The relay preliminaries begin at 10: oO in the morning. Some Tax The Garden City Feeder company, which has been carrying: on a business for many years at the town of Pella, evidently must have had prosperous times during the years 1918 to 1923, inclusive, and the government is now claiming that the manager? of the concern have been guilty ot a fraud in the way of covering; up a large share of their profits for those years with a view of escaping the income tax. They are demanding of the concern the sum of 5147,000 to cover deficiencies and penalties. The commissioner of internal revenue claims that the company sought to elude the payment of this tax by greatly overvaluing a certain patent, which the managers claimed was worth $350,000 to $500,000, but which the court has decided was not worth more than $25,000. The company will have to be pretty prosperous to be able to dig up that amount of money in these kind of times. SPECIAL DISCOUNTS on Diamonds, Wedding Rings, and Silverware During April. GEO. S.

The affairs are sponsored by the board in control of athletics and the athletic staff. More than 700 persons, including alumni, "I" men, faculty members, sports writers, high school coaches, and Iowa City townspeople are expected to attend the dinner. "I" MEN TO ORGANIZE With letter men from many Iowa counties expected to be present, the afternoon convention will feature election of officers, adoption of constitution and by-laws, and laying of general plans for the club's work. While the "I" men are in session, coaches, sports writers, and other guests will attend an open house session in the field house to see demonstrations in various sports. Both the convention and open house will end at 4 p. m. so all visitors can attend the Minnesota- Iowa baseball game. TO HONOR SIX MEN At the dinner, the guests will honor Ernest G.

Updegraff, chairman of the athletic board; Director Schroeder, Assistant Director Devine, Coaches Tubbs, Boland, and Nevers; and the newly-elected president of the Hawk-I club. Governor Nelson Kraschel also will speak if he is able to be present. In Onera Now Heaviest Line In Years Greets New Ames Coach Yeager Likely to Best Ancient Cyclone Jinx Still Operating Thirty years ago a company of eight of the leading farmers living in Union township, in Hardin county, decided that it would be more economical for them to buy a threshing machine of their own rather than to continue to pay the owners of machines for doing the work for them. Accordingly they organized themselves into a "ring" and bought a standard make of threshing machine, and for a number of years they all continued to do their own work. Then they began to drop out, one by one. James Moore, one of the owners, was not that kind of a man. He still threshes grain with his thirty-year-old machine, and apparently it does just as good work as ever. Everyone of the original owners but himself had dropped out. He thinks that good care does the trick. BUY, SELL or Trade Real Estate List your property with me on commission basis. M. M.

S&M FINANCE COMPANY Phone 253-W Donald Dickson, 25-year-old baritone star of WHO'S Sealtest Saturday Night Party, has just been signed by the Metropolitan Opera association for the spring_ opera season. He will make his debut May 3 as Valentine in "Faust," just three months after coming to radio as an almost un- I known artist. Dickson studied in Cleveland with Warren Whitney. He sang in three seasons of opera with the Cleveland Symphony, under the direction of Arthur Rodzinski. Last summer he had major roles in opera at Lake Chautauqua. Since last fall he . has been studying at the Juilliard School of Music in New York and in January was signed for the Seal- test program heard over WHO. His performance in the title role of the opera "Garrick" at the Juilliard School a few weeks ago was unanimously acclaimed by New York music critics. The Saturday Night Party in addition to Dickson presents singing master of ceremonies; each week James Melton, the Tom Howard and George Shelton, comedians; the New Yorkers chorus; and Robert Emmet Dolan's orchestra. Ames, la., (&)—James J. Yeager,- in his first year as head coach, started out this spring to get a line on hij> Iowa State College football squad, and there is every indication he succeeded. In fact, the line looms as the biggest and best the Cyclones have had- in years. Yeager succeeded George Veenker as head coach when Veenker decided that athletic directing and football coaching were one job too many, and turned the coaching duties over to his assistant. NO WEIGHT In recent years the Cyclones have been handicapped by lack of weight. Veenker did what he could to overcome this difficulty by equipping his speedboys with an amazing assortment of hocus-pocus running and passing plays which made Iowa State a joy to behold, win or lose. With 18 lettermen, a dozen of whom reported for spring drill, and a choice assortment of freshmen, Yeager has the markings of a good football team, with weight where none grew before. He cut his squad of 90 men to 45 for the final week of drill. Freshmen will provide much of the added poundage, and spring practice disclosed that some lettermen may be bench jockeys next fall as newcomers cavort as regulars. HEAVY LOSSES The Cyclones', who defeated Kansas for their only Big Six victory last fall and tied Oklahoma for their annual surprise, lost some good men, including Clarence Gustine, all-conference end; Harold Schafroth, tackle, and Tommy Neal, one of the pony boys of the backfield. The spring workouts disclosed a possible first-string line of Rowland Rushmore and James Dishinger, ends; Clyde Shugart and Paul Morin, tackles; Ed Bock and Capt. Clarence Dee, gnards; and John Anderson, center. All are veterans except Morin, a 215-pound husky. Shugart is a transplanted back. Bock is a standout. The ball-carrying combinations were juggled so often that picking a starting quartet is a prob- blem. Everett Kischer, whose speed, kicking and passing were outstanding last fall, was not out for spring drill but should land a place with ease.

SHOT IN EYE; NOT HURT G. Banta, a farmer who lives near to the town of Riceville, up in Mitchell county, went into a hardware store a few days ago and was looking at some guns with a view to buying one. A gun in his hands was accidentally discharged and instantly Banta cried out that he had been shot in the eye. He wildly threw up his hand to the injured member. The ball had struck him fairly in the eye, but the doctors who bad been called to examine the wound just turned away smiling and said that no damage had been done. The ^shot struck the center of his glass eye and bounced harmlessly off. He had momentarily forgotten that the eye was his glass one. Banta felt no after effects. Bresnahan and Tuttle Write Track Volume Iowa City—Discoveries in technique made during his twenty years as a coach are embodied in a book on track and field athletes written by George T. Bresnahan of the University of Iowa, in collaboration with Dr. W. W. Tuttle of the physiology department. The 300-page volume, which will come from the press this summer, is suitable for the novice and for the champion. Its sixteen chapters contain discussion of technique of each event and seventy illustrations show ideal form. Coach Bresnahan, during his seventeen years at Iowa, has developed Olympic, national" collegiate, and Big Ten champions, including men or relay teams which have set major records in such events as 220 and 440-yard dashes, high and low hurdles, broad jump, javelin, pole vault, and 140, 880, and mile relays. ;i Electric and Acetylene WELDING FRANZWA SHOP Phone 514-W ALL WORK GUARANTEED Repairing On.
