Giving an explanation of how the new soil conservation program works, County Agent Marion Olson in an address Monday noon to the Rotary club in Hotel Hanford stressed the importance of conserving all resources. Conservation is important to the present generation but much more so- for future generations, he continued. If steps for conserving the soil are not taken, Agent Olson asserted, depletion of the soil will mean that the production cost is tliat much greater. Lowered total production will also contribute in bringing about a lower standard of living unless conservation xf the soil is carried on systematically. Agent Olson told of a community in Kansas which 30 years ago was prosperous and progressive. Continued depleting crops on the soil resulted in this district losing much of its wealth, through dust atorms. Now the few persons remaining there, in a pitiable condition, are angry with the weather, the soil-- witih everyone and constitute a radical group. Soil conservation is inaugurated to prevent such, a condition arising. Briefly Agent Olson explained thai how under the new plan farmers agree to put part of their land in soil conserving crops--those which build it up as distinguished from soi depleting crops--and are paid on compliance. Legume crops are among those of conserving qualities putting nitrogen into the soil so that tie soil has greater bacter ial action and the organic matter absorbs more moisture. J. B. E. Markley was welcomet back from his trip to the orient ani responded with a few remarks Guests were Clarence Knutson o Clear Lake and J. C. Powers oj Hampton. R. B. Irons presided.

The morning trains brought coach loads of excited boys and girls from Ames, Des Moines, Mount Vernon, Iowa City, Mount Pleasant and other college towns. With pennants flying and colors showing, the different groups sang and cheered to let the world know who they were. From the university at Iowa City came ITS students, all dressed up in their holiday clothes and wearing old gold ribbons to prove the location of their loyalty. They were in Grinnell to attend the first Iowa state track and'field meet and urge the university team to victory. Interest in foot racing, jumping, and other contests of strength and skill was just beginning in Iowa colleges. Baseball, tennis and other sports were common, though athletics had not become very important in higher education. There were no huge field houses and stadiums. Most colleges did not have even a gymnasium. Games were played for fun and recreation. Rivalry between colleges was keen, but the opportunities for expressing it were few. News of track and field meets in eastern schools probably suggested the sport in Iowa colleges. Perhaps some of the professors had been members of track teams when they were students. The beginning of track and field athletics at the State University of Iowa was probably similar to what happened in other Iowa colleges about the same time. In the fall of 1889 two Irish boys came to Iowa City to study medicine. William P. Slattery and his cousin, Jeremiah Slattery, were nephews of Archbishop John Hennessey of Dubuque. They liked track and field sports. The enthusiasm with which they told about their "contists for pints" as students in Dublin aroused much interest at the university. Other students began to practice running, jumping and throwing weights. Presently a meeting of the bes' athletes in Iowa colleges was proposed. Representatives from 14 colleges met at Mount Pleasant in February, 1890. After some debate the Intercollegiate Athletic association was formed and plans were made to hold the first track and field meet at Grinnell. B. L. Osgood of Iowa Wesleyan was elected president of the association; F. G. Pierce of the university was chosen vice president; and C. W. Gorham of Cornell was selected for the position of secretary and treasurer. An executive committee was appointed to arrange the program for the first Iowa field day, buy medals for the winners, and tax members of the associa- The local field day--first of its kind at the University of Iowa-- ivas on May 10. Iowa City businessmen gave money to buy medals, and i merchant offered a silk umbrella 'or the champion. The little base- jail grandstand was packed when .he athletes marched 'on the field. While the other contestants took off their neckties and rolled up heir trousers and sleeves, the two Slatterys threw aside their blankets and stepped forth in track suits. The ladies gasped in surprise. It was late in the afternoon before the ast of the 22 events was finished. Jerry Slattery won the field day championship. He took first place n the football kick, the running broad jump, and the pole vault. Moreover, he placed second in the 50 yard dash, the 100 yard dash, the Charles H. E. Boardman of Cornell who won second place in the 75 yard dash at the first Iowa state field meet. In 1891 he was first in the shot put and 220 yard dash and as "all around athlete." He won the 100 yard dnsh in the third state meet. tion to pay expenses. These plans stimulated activity. Athletes at Grinnell, the State Agricultural college, Cornell, Iowa Wesleyan and Upper Iowa began to train for the meet. As soon as the weather was warm enough they might have been seen any afternoon practicing on the local race track or in some open space on the campus. At the university the Slattery boys coached their team mates They explained how to start in the sprints, how to put the shot, anc how to jump. They put on their spiked running shoes--the first tha' the others had seen. Behind the Old Capitol, at Englert's ball park beside the river, and at the fairgrounds about 25 men practiced diligently. One afternoon in April a mass meeting was held to arouse more interest in athletics. The president of the university and several faculty members spoke. A local fielc day was proposed. This would keep up enthusiasm among the students and provide an opportuity. of discovering the best athletes to compete in the state meet. 220 yard run, jump and the the standing high hammer throw. It was'said that the peaches-and-cream complexion of the president's daughter changed to flaming scarlet when he stepped up in his scanty track suit to receive his medals and the silk umbrella. After the university field day, attention was turned to the state meet. All the colleges were invited to send as many visitors as possible. Ice creain and strawberries were promised to all who came. The faculty of the university granted a holiday so that students could go to the state meet. According to the Grinnell college paper the university crowd was the largest and noisiest of all. Only after much urging did the Slattery boys persuade their team mates to wear track suits. An all-day program was arranged. Tennis matches filled the morning hours, field and track events started at 2 in the afternoon at the fairgrounds, and in the evening boxing and fencing at the opera house com. pleted the contests. Cornell won the tennis doubles. The university team, thinking that five sets were to be played, was surprised to have the contest end with three sets. Grinnell won the singles match for men and Miss Nellie Cox of the university took the championship in singles for women. Thus, Cornell, Grinnell, and the university entered the track and field events of the afternoon on even terms; each had one first place. A large crowd gathered at the fairgrounds before the ticket sellers arrived. It was hard to collect admission from t h o s e already through the gate. As a reporter said, the committee lost several dollars on account af this "soupy" negligence. Most of the events in the first Iowa state track and field meet are still included in euch programs Some of them, however, such as the football kick, baseball throw, hitch and kick, standing broad jump three-legged race, and tug of war now seem strange. In their place new events, unknown to the pioneer track stars of 46 years ago, have been added--the javelin throw, the discus throw, the mile and two mile runs, and the relay races. The method of scoring was different, too. Only first and second places were counted; two points for first and me for second. Probably the hardest race in the : irst meet was the half mile run. C. ?. Chase of the university led near- y all the way, only to see J. Mc- Irath of Grinnell pass him at the inish with a surprising burst of speed. The time was 2 minutes and .6 2-3 seconds. In the pole vault, J. F. Reed of rinnell and Jerry Slattery were tied at 8 feet and 11 inches. Reed then cleared the bar at 8 feet and inches, but Slattery in trying to vault 9 feet fell and broke his hand. W. P. Slattery breasted the :ape in the 120 yard hurdle race "in the remarkable time of 18 4-5 seconds," but Reed of Grinnell was declared the winner because "Slat- :ery had touched a hurdle." T. P. Findley of the university won all three dashes of 50, 75 and 100 yards. The 75 yard dash was substituted for a flag race. Findley won it easily in 1 3-5 seconds, "looking over his shoulder at his opponent" who was Charles Boardman of Cornell. By taking three first places, Findley won the individual championship of the meet and carried away the gold medal offered by the Grinnell college paper. Most of the records in the first state meet were not very good, compared to the present standards. Those boys, however, had very little experience and no one to coach them. They ran on a dirt track built for horse racing. Nevertheless, Findley made good time in the dashes and some of the field performances were remarkable. W. Zmunt of Ames threw a baseball 362 feet and 9 inches; W. P. Slattery broadjurnped 20 feet and 10% inches; J. Slattery place-kicked a football a little more than 187 feet; and G. P. Ruggles of Upper Iowa leaped 12 feet and 2% inches in a standing broad jump with weights. At the close of the afternoon the points. Cornell third. Iowa Wesleyan, Ames, and Upper Iowa also placed in the scoring columns. To these schools belongs the honor of an important place in the history of sports in Iowa. The annual intercollegiate state track and field meet is their monument. Activity Hints. 1. Have a track and field meet for the boys in your school or neighborhood. 2.
