Ward has done 6 feet, 7 inches. Sears Tries Two-Mile. Ray Sears, the Butler university distance ace, undoubtedly will crack Henry Brocksmith's two mile mark of 9:13.6 if the track is fast. Sears did the event in 9:07.8 last winter for the new American indoor record. Duane Purvis of Purdue, the best of the Big Ten's javelin throwers, hardly can fail to set a new figure in his pet event if conditions are favorable. Purvis · repeatedly has lashed out throws better than the 207 feet, 6 inch record by Kuck of the Kansas State Teachers. There are many other fine individual performers entered along with a prominent array of fast relay combinations. Notable Performers. Among the notables are Glenn Hardin of Louisiana State, national quarter-mile and 400 meter hurdles champion; Sam Allen, Oklahoma Baptist high hurdler; Dray Williams, Pomona college (Cal.) hurdler; B. M. Irwin, Texas A. and M. shot putter, and a host of other celebrities. Major John L. Griffith, Big Ten commissioner of athletics, is the honorary referee, and Coach Clyde Litterfield of Texas will act as starter.

Dallas caught one for a homeruh inside the park In the sixth frame. Suter, Crabb, Dietz and Hert did the hitting for the high school boys. Both teams are scheduled for plenty of action this week-end. The GRAIN MARKETS RALLY AT CLOSE Prices Average Lower With New Liquidation of May Contracts Feared. CHICAGO, April 26. UP)--Fears of renewed liquidation of May contracts did a good deal to make Brains average lower today, but did not prevent rallies at the last. Late rallies were ascribed largely to persistent dry weather complaints. On the other hand, disappointment was expressed over a conference agreement at Washington to enforce 3 cents tax a $100 valuation on commodity exchange futures transactions, whereas the senate had proposed a reduction to 1 cent from 5 cents. Wheat closed nervous, unchanged to V\ lower compared with yesterdays finish, May and July both 75%-%; com % to 1 cent down, May 44-44%, July 46^-%; oats unchanged to % off, and provisions unchanged to a decline of 2 cents.

No Grasshopper Eggs in Soil Carried From South Dakota by Wind AMES, April 26.--Some' people expect too much of the clouds of South Dakota soil which.have been settling upon Iowa during the last few days. Iowa State College entomologists have been asked whether any grasshopper eggs have been blown over along with the dust It is unlikely that any eggs made the excursion, they say. '"Hopper eggs are laid in pod-like masses, containing from 40 to 100 eggs. To blow them out of 1 to 3 inches of ground and on to Iowa would take quite a wind. Even if they were blown that far they probably would be dried out so much they wouldn't hatch," says one · of the department. ,. ; ; .One South Dakota student remarked--in jest, it is thought-that he found a radish from his home garden behind his ear Monday morning. Another explained that the radish had been behind his ears since he arrived here last fall. Two School Banquets Are Held in Gym at Cresco CRESCO, April 26.--The junior- senior banquet was held Tuesday night in the high school gymnasium with a number of toasts. Jack Layton was toastmaster.

The action was keeping wito the news, the continued mpiaints on northwest crop conditolns beg offset by further breaks in cotton and Iver, although the latter rallied before the ose. Sentiment -was rather bearish on fears further liquidation in May before first eltvcry day next Tuesday and the trade as disappointed over the action of the 'use and senate conference on the income tax bill agreeing upon a 3 cent per $100 value tax on speculative commitments In commodities whereas the senate bill had placed the figure at only one cent. The purchase of 20,000 bushels of cash wheat. was made to come here from Kan* sas City. Scattered showers were reported overnight in eastern -Kansas and in some parts of Oklahoma and there were heavy rains in sections of Missouri and a late report Indicated ail day showers prevailing at Sterling, Colo. There were scattered showers in Iowa. Illinois and Indiana but there was no precipitation in. the northwest states. Canadian reports indicated that moisture would be beneficial in the northern sections of the three prairie provinces. Coarse Grains--Cora was off about a cent during the morning as there was further liquidation under way in May. The open interest In this delivery is being rapidly reduced, cash interests taking advantage of breaks to secure requirements. Inclined to expect unsattled markets the remainder of the week due to evening up of May contracts. MrN.VEArOLIS STOCKS. MINNEAPOLIS, April 26. (.«--Stocks Closed: First Bank Stock S;J.
