The classes of the high school will
run off the interclass meet . tomorrow
which was postponed from last Satur
day. The track is in very good condi
tion now, and the boys expect to make
some pretty good class records. The
chief fight for honors is between the
seniors and,, the juniors. Both sides
are confident of victory, but the gen
eral opinion seems to be that the jun
iors will win the larger number of
points. The men who make the best
showing tomorrow will be sent to Keo
kuk to take part in the invitation meet
which is to he held there a week from
Saturday. It has not yet been decided
just how many will be sent, but there
will be euough of them to properly
represent . the school. It will be a
long trip, however, and the boys do
not expect to win the meet.
