Entry lists for the.tri-city meet, to
be held at the Exposition park of this
city Saturday afternoon, closed today.
Lists from the high schools of Moline,
Davenport and Rock Island have been
received, and they will be sent to the
printer immediately for the program
of the meet. It is thought that the
meet Saturday -will be the best ever
held by the three schools, and from a
present count of the points, it seems
that the new silver cup, which has
been purchased to replace the cup
won by tje Davenport high school last
year, is due to be won again by Dav
enport or to be captured by athletes
from this city. It appears that Moline
will not have many points to their
credit at the end of the meet, from
the present dope. Followers of the
track teams say that many records
will be shattered. Local men are con
ceded first and second places in both
the quarter mile dash and the half I
mile run, while at least first and third
will go to R. I. H. S. men in the mile
run. The race will be closely contest
ed, it being said that the winning team
will not have a margin over 10 points
All the officials for the meet have
been chosen. E. G Schroeder of the
University of Iowa, Iowa City, will
be the .referee and starter of the meet.
Members of the faculty of the three
high srhools will be judges, one from
each school composing the trio of
jud?es for each event. The complete
list of officials is as follows:
Rrfcree and starter E. G. Sehroe-d'-r.
University of Iowa.
Clfrk Will Robb, Augustana col-
Only slight changes in the Missis-. . .
Members of Rock Island command-1
ery. Knights Templar, are making j
elaborate arrangements for the enter
tainment of the commandery at Ke
wanee. The Sir Knights from the
neighboring city are to be the guests
of the local commandery Monday even
ing, May 19.
The trip here Is in the nature of a
return courtesy for the good time
which Rock Island commandery men
enjoyed in Kewanee in 1906. The local
Knights at that time made the journey
on a special train and took a band
along with them. Ever since that time
the Knights here have been anxious
to entertain Kewanee and nave ar
ranged to do the honors on the date
named above. A banquet is to be
served at 6:30, after which there will i
be degree work which will be put on i
by the visitors.
