The St. Louis promoters a'. , , .. . - .. „ ready have the promises of practically all of the star athletes in the army and navy to attend the national meeting. Prominent among these are Don Scott, winner of the national half mile last year; Ted Meredith, holder of world's records at tjie quarter and half; Howard Berry, intercollegiate champion and Dana Jenkins, the fast est sprinter. No outdoor boxing will be seen here this summer, as John Weismantol, promoter of the Broadway Sporting Club, has been refused a license for bouts at Ebbets Field during the months of August and September. Jack Dunn, Jr., son of the well known baseball manager and veteran ex-league player, was one in the early draft in Baltimore. Young is consid ered one of the best interscholastic baseball and football players ever de veloped in the Maryland metropolis. He is a real chip of the old black. If Philadelphia "goes to" the task of running the next Olympic games the job will be done in regular style, The annual relay race meeting of the University of Pennslyvania at Frank lin Field, unquestionably the greatest annual outdoor meet in America, is proof enough that the Quakers can handle anything in the way of mon ster athletic competitions in clever style.

"The time mis arrived when high way conventions should have more of an official character. There should be a good-roads meeting in every town ship in the United States at least once a year, held under the charge of the chief highway official of the township. There should be at least one county meeting held every year In each coun ty, under the charge of the county en gineer or the chief highway official. There should be oue state meeting In each state each year, under the charge of the state highway commis sion. Then the local automobile clubs, the good roads associations and others could co-opernte in these conventions, ns their interest nud location war- ] ranted. The township, county and state meetings should be held before,! the national meeting, so that at each j of tho sinnller gatherings delegates could be named to go to the national convention, which In reality would be a great good roads school, lasting for one week or two weeks, In the city of Washington, under the charge of the most important highway official of the country, nnmely, the federal authority in charge of governmenta expenditure." i Set a Good Example.
