FORTY TRACKMEN ARE READY TO REPORT TO HARDER OF JAYSEES F ORTY trackmen, most of whom hav.e had previous experience either in high school or junior college, will report to Coach "Spud" Harder next Monday afternoon for the initial workout of the Bakersfleld Junior .College track and field squad. For the balance of this week, Harder •will be busy getting his distance runners in shape for the cross-country grind to be held here Saturday, but once this event is out of the.way It will be time to start work on the regular track events. As a nucleus around which he hopes to build another valley championship squad, Coach Harder has a handful of veterans left over from last year. Among.them are Guy Benton, high.hurdler; Bill Van Osdel, •who handles the high jump, pole-* vault and Javelin; and Joe Robinson, quarter-miter and dash man. Other veterans are'the distance men who will be featured In the 'five-mile trek this .week, Herb Martin, who during the normal course of track season usually contents himself with the mile; Marlon Mor- .ton and Tom Dickey, who will probably bo called upon, to run the two- mile; and the Esteps, Gerold and Harold, who can be used in the 880, mile, or two-mile. ' Ex-High Stars A number of former high school •tars will bo found on the Junior college roster, among them Jorrold Me- Call,.Peto Kump, Rodger Dennen, Elmer Croson and Lowell Ball. McCall was the star middle distance man on the Driller squad last year and should have one of his best seasons. Kump 'was a lightweight sprint star, and Dennen a heavyweight thrower of shot and discus. Croson stretches his long legs over the high jump bar at pretty fair altitudes and was a point winner for the high school Class A team last year, .and Ball, though he will be kept out of his best events, the middle distances, will be valuable In broad jump and high jump. From Coallnga t Some of the outstanding perform^ "ances may be expected from the hpys •who will be new to the local clrfder path. Prod Clayton, a transfer/Trom Coaltnga, gives promise of being the fastest dash man on the squad. Wilton Wilton, the "Wee Willie" of football fame, who has been keeping out of the headlines and earning surplus grade points since the close of grid season, will try out for the century, 440 and broad jump. Russell Black will serve as an extra quarter-mller. Robert Bowman has liad experience in the dashes, and Jim Cutshall .will try his baseball pitching arm on the javelin. Kenneth Uren will tackle the hurdles and 440, and Harlln Summers, shot and discus. Powell Freeland 'Is reported to be out for the Javelin throw, and Howard Hendsch will run the long distances. Other Aspirants Others who are expected to report for track and field practice are George Cuneo, Eugene Ford, Jack Frey, Gordon Hogue, Rolph Karnes. Jack Ma- gulre, Harry Miller, Frank McClure, Rees Rees, Don Simpson,.Carlos Sutton, Lloyd Wattenbarger, Elwood Lawrence, and Jim Camp. Though the potentialities of these boys have yet to be determined, the material is • there.

Medical Men Differ Over Direct Cause Schaaf Ring Fatality By JACK CUDDY United Presi stiff Corrtipondint N EW YORK, Feb. 16.—Supporters of professional boxing rallied today to prevent the tragedy of Ernie Schaaf from killing the profitable prize ring in New York state. Led by James A. Farley, chairman of the Democratic national committee, prospective member of the Roosevelt cabinet, and head of the state athletic commission, which rules the ring here, the friends of boxing sought to block moves to prohibit prize fights, which developed as soon as word of Schaaf's death spread yesterday. The professional future of Prlmo Camera, Italian heavyweight giant, who administered the knockout punch that preceded Schaaf's death, was in doubt. William Muldoon of the New York Athletic Commission virtually ended his career In New York State rings, it was believed, by ordering his future contests confined to opponents weighing 220 pounds or more. Met Bio Ones Camera already has met practically all professionals within this limit and boxing experts saw no profit to promoters in repeat engagements. The order/barred a projected bout between Camera and Champion Jack Sharkey. Farley returned to New York yesterday and at once began an investigation into the fight, ordered by Governor Herbert W. Lehman. Ho had been expected to relinquish his athletic commission chairmanship at once, Inasmuch as he will be occupied continuously from now until March 4 with patronage distribution for President-elect Roosevelt. But In view of the critical situation in which boxing was placed by the Schaaf death, it was believed he would retain his position for a fortnight longer. Demand Repeal State Senator Henry G.

IB. •'-' The innn who expressed tho our that American athletics •eachod their peak In the past Olympic games and are due to decline and fade away' may yet irove to bo a Grade A prophet. For n the past two months thero have >eon two unmistakable signs that .his country's athletes are losing lomo of tho virility and, ruggeduoss which carried them to prominence. Tho first, and probably the tnoro mlnouH sign was Gcno Snrnzen's suggestion that golf cups bo enlarged waste-paper basket size, thereby miking tho sinking of" u putt as simple us throwing a grapefruit into tho rand Canyon. Sign No. 2 was a few days ago when a group of football coaches irged that a team bo given five first downs once it drives into its opponent's 20-yard lino. Squelch 'Em It is to be hoped that both those suggestions are squelched and our golfers continue shooting at a cup which is missablo and our footballers stick to making 10 yards In four tries. Ij'or if they don't, even little Freddie with his adenoid trouble can figure out what will happen. Players' of other sports will become dissatisfied with the difficulties of their games, and demand wholesale changes. Baseball players will ask for five Ftnkes, the right to call their owi ball and strikes, and tho privilege -of running directly from first to third when a run Is needed. Swimmers wll want water wings and outboard motors, nnd in tennis, the bounce you get the' ball on, won't matter. Boxing Changes Boxing will have its changes, too When a man Is knocked down th timekeeper won't start his count untl tho victim has had a week's rest li .the White mountains. The rings wl be one block square and at tho en tho boya will draw straws to decld the winner. • ParchisI will eliminate the block ado and sending a man homo will go you but two extra moves. Contrac bridge decks will be radically altered Haft the cards will be noes, and eac] playor will have tho right to nam trumps. This will eliminate tho danger o anyone holding too many. Elephan shoes will be substituted for horse shoes and bob Bladders, Instead o lining the dangerous chutes dowi mountainsides, will employ the soape slopes of bath tubs. Other Alterations Sports will not hold a monopoly on changes. Poker players will make tw pair potent UH three of a kind and un fortunates who try in vain to fill an inside straight will bo awarded hal tho pot. Tho Ten Commandments wl bo reduced to eight and flags on pub lie buildings will be hauled only t tho three-quarter mark except on holl days when flag raisers will bo grnntc double pay for pulling them to th l.'eak. Hens will bo excused from pro dticlng morn than one egg a week, an pennies will work In pay telephones. Now you think of a frw! FINE GALAXY OF MAT STARS OFFERED HERE FOR FANS THIS EVE J OB WOODS, who moves with the speed of one of the leopards from his own veldt In Africa, and Tony Marconi, tough boy of Chicago vrestllng, crash Into action In the mat climax arranged for the enter- alnment of fans here tonight by Buck Buchanan. Marconi, who took ila degree of "M. M." In Loop University, Chicago, the Initials standing or Master of Mayhem, and who has honorary degrees from other nstltutlons of malm and maul, Including hla "Bachelor of Bone Bend- ng" from good old Oxford, will attempt to harness the extra energy of Woods tonight and convert It Into electric power or something or other. Woods Is credited with being the most energetic wrestler showing here, working harder, If possible, than Don Hill, and that Is going some. ^Marconi Is slower, and many fans believe, tougher. The big Italian will have his hands full this evening for Joe will bo just about as much wrestler as he has met In this city and many others for that matter. This main event will be decided in a two-out-of-three falls basis vith a two-hour time limit. The seml-wlndup Is equal, if not superior to the main event In class for it features Frank Schroll, light heavyweight champion of the world, In action against Dorace Scarbery, former valley champion at this weight. Tho match Is for two falls with a i5-mlnute time limit for tho entire match. Snappy Opener The opener features Don Hill moot- ng Clyde Jones of Fresno.

Fla., Feb. 15.— Tho world's land speed record ,of 263.9 miles an hour may go by the boards today If Sir Malcolm Campbell IH given a fair beach and his mechanics finish the adjustments on the IJIueblrd which yesterday's trial run showed to bo necessary. The mechanics, who started delving into Bluebird's Insldes almost before she finished her first run and then worked over the big cobalt, monster through the night, promised the car would be ready at low tide. Whether they can live up to their promise is something else again, for the changes they had to make were many. Principal among the changes was lowering the car's gear ratio. Sir Malcolm ordered this move when he learned he might have no more than three miles In which to pick up speed this year. Another problem the mechanics had to solve was how to prevent the cockpit of the car from becoming filled with poisonous fumes. Sir Malcolm was almost stifled yesterday by carbon monoxide. Condition of the racing strip will not be known until the tide recede! late in tho afternoon. CHESTER JTOR.TON COWS OUKATIMT TBACUER (Coprrttbt John p. Dlllc Co.) BUCK ROGERS, 2433 A. D.

Hence the right hand must be so placed that just tho opposite effect as regards the left hand, is strengthen up the the device of solid- sought.
