MR. HARNWELL RESIGNS
express in these columns opinions on the many problems of a! means a state bank call also, officia
varied nature which have, from time to time, presented them-
selves, of a'civic, state or national nature. There may have!
been times when The Pioneer readers had different opinions
from those expressed in these columns but there has ever been a
sincere desire to present facts and conditions as they have ap-
peared to us.
It is with regret that this pleasure will no longer be ours.'
There have been many commendations, some criticism, but al-i
ways there has been interest expressed. A special effort has
always been made to present the things that were best and for i
the highest good of the community from the standpoint of its
civic, industrial and moral welfare and whether we have in any!
way contributed to do it or not. we believe the city has made I
much progress and is a better city than it was two years ago.
To The Pioneer readers who have ever accorded us their
consideration and encouragement we desire to express our,
thanks. It has been a pleasure to serve even in this humble
way. We wish for all a most Happy and Prosperous New Year.
FIELD AND TRACK MEET POSSIBILITIES
Interest in track athletics has received a big boost in Cass
Lake, according to an article appearing in the Cass Lake Times,
of this week. A former Iowa track star, H. H. Robinson, who is
employed on the Times staff, has found some good material in a
number of the -high school boys down there and believes aj
strong track team can be formed. I
Robinson's dope on the Cass Lake aggregation is summed
up in the Times article as follows:
"fL H. Robinson, Iinotyper at The Times and former star
runner of Iowa in track meets, says that from his observations
Cass Lake stands a good show with her materia! at hand in tak-1
ing a few honors in the line of field and traek. Robinson or as,
he is more favorably known, "Robbie," was the man who whip-,
ped the football team of last fall into line and brought them!
from a bunch of greenhorns into a figlifcing eleven that broke]
down a team of Chippewas picked from college teams of South
Dakota and Pennsylvania. Robinson has picked for one of the
runners, Elmo Alvord who, with a little training, he says, can bej
developed into a sprinter who can run down any man around
here. Alvord's work on the gridiron last fall convinced Robin-
son that he is the man for the track. Larson, RobinJon says,
ought to show up in either the dashes or as a 220 man, while
Waldon and Koeneman. both fast men on their feet, shoulo!
"^a&iow up in the dashes. Marshall and Johnson, strong and long-.
hotbed men. have been picked as possibilities as distance men,
whii^ the powerfully built Caswell brothers ought to hold the:
honors with the discus, shot and hammer. For the pole vault, it
is a c|uestion but Marshall, the powerful youngster, had thej
edge on his colleagues in days gone by and should, from all in-1
dicatubns, carry on a little farther. Carter has been picked as a'
possibility in the long distance running, while Potvin. Ittner,
Mullein and Nolan, freshmen athletes, will have a chance to!
provfe what they have in them. While Robbie's review is un-i
official and merely as an onlooker, his work as a track man puts
him in a position to make a pretty fair estimate of what can bej
done i|rt this line."
VjPhile the individual possibilities of the men referred to by
The Tames does not really interest Bemidji. as it does the home
town,jthe fact that an interest in track and field meets is being
created in Cass Lake should have a special interest to Bemidji.
lw*ome time past Bemidji has been planning for a big field!
aildi track meet in connection with the high school, in which all
^th/j track teams of the neighboring high schools would be in-,
*^*.ed to compete, but suitable gnrands and other aeeommoda-
tens were not available. The completion of the new high
school and the construction of a track and field grounds, which
i* is hoped to accomplish either this coming summer* or next,
vill make Bemidji an ideal place for such a meet. Centrally?
&'-uated, easily accessible from all directions by rail or highway,!
\Mth a grandstand capable of seating 2,500 people, and with ai
splendid track, Bemidji should at once make preparations for!
a teld and track meet next fall which would be attended by thej
leans from the leading high schools in Northern Minnesota.!
The present race track is in fine shape and could be used for!
tract events if the regular track is not completed by that time.
The event could be made a yearly affair and would create
a wonderful interest in athletics. Not only could this be done|
in th case of track athletics, but a football or baseball tourna-j
_nt.nt could also be put on at the same time.
Now is the time for Bemidji athletes and those interested
in them,to take action. We believe it would be one of the big-
gest accomplishments in interscholastic activities.
Mr. Robinson is entitled to commendation for his effort in'
stirring up interest in athletic circles in our neighboring town.
