On Ihe basis of his performances in oilier years, not to mention llr fine form he has disulaycd already this season. Frank WyckofT Is HIT outstandingesl of Southern Callf'v- nia's outstanding collection. OHI- dally he has done 9.V secmnls to 1 the furlong this year, besides several Informal prncllce races of near world recorrl limes. • Wykoff, however, Is but one of Conch Dean Cromwell's very talented group. The list includes Vie Williams, national A. A. U. 4 If cfiamplon; Bill Carls, IC4A low hurdles champion; Jim Slewart, N. C. A. A. .Irish Jump winner; and a raft of others like Art. Woessner Bill McGeagh, Cllft Halstcad, T!i!' Slokes, Captain Ernie Payne.

Charley Ruffing pitched well for the Yanks Wlnsett of the Sox duplicateJ Ruth's feat. Wes Ferrell, who won 25 games for Cleveland last year, began the new season with a triumph over the Chicago White .Sox yesterday, o to 4. The game was hard fought with two runs In the eighth inning giving the Indians victory. Br.ixton was the losing pitcher.

Anderson, who was a great guard in his day, !s a master of line Instruction, and Chevigny is one of the best backs Notre Dame ever had.
