Girl athletes have made the sea
son of 1916 one long to be remem
bered in athletics. In every college
or university where meets were
staged at least one record was shat
tered or equaled. Among the nota
ble performances were those of girls
who competed in baseball throwing
events in Wisconsin.
Twice during the spring girls in
the Badger state bettered former rec
ords. Miss Gladys Palmer of Oak
Park set a new world's mark in May,
throwing 227 feet. This mark went
by the board when Miss Elizabeth
Faville of Lake Mills, Wis., in a girls'
contest at Milwaukee-Downer col
lege, an exclusive school for women,
broke Miss Palmer's record by a
foot, throwing 228 feet She is said
to have scored 240 feet in practice.
Miss Faville was pressed by Miss
Alice Gronauer of Memphis, who
smashed the college record, but
could not equal the mark set by Miss
Faville. The latter in two other con
tests the same day broke the records
of her college, throwing a basket
ball 71 feet 11 inches and putting
the five-pound shot 34 feet 4 in.
Miss Helen Hewitt, a freshman

also performed spectacular feats in
athletics. Girls attending Vassar,

RESTA AND DE PALMA TO STAGE
HOT RACE FOR SUPREMACY
Chicago will have the opportunity
of seeing a real auto race for glory.
Two speed kings, Dario Resta and
Ralph De Palma, have agreed to such
a race for next Sunday at Speedway
This will be a battle, not for a mere
money prize, but because each be
lieves himself the other's master.
They will drive three races, begin
ning at 3 o'clock. One will be for
10 miles, the second for 24 miles and
the last for 50 miles. The winner
will be he who cops two out of three.
The race was brought about be
cause of De Palma's feeling that only
a hoodoo prevented him from win
ning first place in Sunday's derby in
his cream-colored Mercedes. Resta
says he is going to prove that his
victory wasn't a matter of luck.

sued the following table of official
