DOES SOT KEEP CXTP.
The impression had been some
what general that the winning of
this meet gave Davenport permanent
possession of the silver loving cup
now In possession of the Iowans, and
offered with the understanding that
it was to go to the school winning
it thrice In succession. However,
an examination of the records shows
that Davenport is not yet entitled to
it. Davenport won last year, when
the meets were resumed after a
break since 1906. In 1908 Moline
won the most points. ' So . to keep
the cup permanently Davenport must
win the next meet.
