Finally some one cast in the suggestion that the baseball games brought fifty cents and that the motor- i in..! cycle race was just as good as a base- : senate? ball game. So it was decided to keep to the standard for the afternoon at tractions. The idea of a preliminary event, such as a mile time trial, was abandoned.

Among them were emissaries from the Y hite there two or three days. Lowell in the meantime put in a i claim for him, and the National as-rad- ! foeiation decided he belonged to the !

The meet will be a trial event for all the schools, allowing them to see if they have the material for entry in the future valley meets and especially in the Tucson University Week meet. All ilie schools of the valley are expecting to send their le-st men to the State University to participate in the events which will be .- laged there at that time. and tlie first real trial of material and grit will be seen at tin- invitation met i to be held this Saturday. Coyote Prospects The Coyotes have an excellent ten in of athletes to enter in the events which .vill be staged at this meet. They have been on the track since the early part of the year under the direction of Coach Geary, the same man who took the Covotes through the football season just passed with such high honors, and under his couching the youngsters of the P. H. S. have developed several men who promise to be not only fast but gritty and heady ovalers. The Tempe Invitation Meet will de cide for the Coyotes just how strong they may expect to be on the circle, and will furnish the men the oppor tunity heretofore denied them, that of getting up against good fellows where they will have to use their heads and legs all the lime. "I do not expect to do such great things with my men at tile Tempe meet," siiid Coach Geary, last evening, "but 1 do hope that they will take enough events to come near the top. The main part of the meet to me and to my team, is the experience they w ill gain in meeting fellows who will make them bend down and dig. With the experience, they will get out of this and the meet on the 28th. I think I can develop a track team which will take all honors hands down, at the University Week meet." Geary is not the only one at the high who is optimistic as to what the Co yotes will do. All the follows of the several events are sure they can make the other fellows go at a terrific speed to beat their marks, and they have spent their every effort to develop themselves under Geary's tutoring to a point where they will be able to do 'best" work for the school they rep resent. University Week There is much interest in the com ing University Week events all over I the state. At Prescott there is a suuad of men practicing daily, find thev have made the threat that they will not be tail enders in the final scoring at the Old Puetiio. especially are they strong in the half and the pole and weight events, and they are bragging that they will take all of the firsts in these. Yuma has done a trick that none of the others have yet thought of. They have gotten a bunch of the young col lege athletes in the U. S. R. S. to come out on the track and show them tne stunts that will pull the events their way. In that way they are securing a coaching that is hard to beat, and are developing several fast and husky run ners. Little Snowflake Academy, way up in the clouds in the northern part of the state, will again participate in the U. A. events. Last year they had two men on the track, and those two took several of the classiest events of the meet, drawing their academy well to the top in the score. Ii is likelv the same men will be on the cinders again this spring and here may be others in addition. Little has been beard from the Pisbee and Douglas highs. However they are icported as having a strong Lne of athletes on the track, and as they have been fanii-d in the past or what they have done, they are likely to have teams which will make some others; loo!: like the far famed celluloid dog. Tucson is the most-to-be-feared school in the whole of the entries Thev have the double advantage of being at home, and of practice races against the faster and older men of the university. Besides they will have their entry list complete in the events, thereby being able to crowd and push where other schools will have but the one or two entries to Jo their be-st against such "general izing." Over in Old -Cochise there is a lit tle Mormon academy from whence came last year a gang of huskies of the farm that made alt the other teams look in wonder, and think "How in thunder can we compete against such giants?" Solomonville has again signified their intention of coming to the university fun. and eitt date there that the men of the mining camps in Mcti-ail and Clifton will be unable to meet with the rest of the state at' the all-state affair. j Williams and Flagstaff have not commitbd themselves. Each year they have contests botwo-n each other i:i all the events of the category but whether they will enter their best men and the baseball nine in the Old Pueblo contests is at present in doubt. It is hoped however, by the authorities in charge of the events at the university that the two Grand Canyon cities will send their best on the oval if no baseball team. Prizes of a first rate quality have been put up for the winners of all events. In the races first, second 'lit! third will receiye for their hon ors gold, silver and bronz medals, respectively. For the re'ay there will be donated a loving cup engraved with the winners' names. In the baseball contest between all the teams of the state, medal fobs will be presented to the individuals of the winning nine, and a large cup will he given the winning school. There is an additional trophy cup hung on the events of this all-state week. That is the trophy cup which I gopc to the school making the high l.st scares on the tra--k.

Other Events Resides the events of the track and diamond there are arranged ither contests in which all the schools will have an opportunity to take a place. There are song and oratorical contests, typewriter and shorthand contests, and such other matches as the school may wish to risk its re putation in.
