URBANA. III., June 5. Seven confer
ence records were smashed and two
others were tied in the annual West
ern Conference meet held here this
afternoon. Missouri finished third
with 21 points.
Wisconsin won the meet with 38
points, crowding out Chicago with
3". Wisconsin won by piling up a
large number of seconds and thirds,
although Mucks took two firsts. The
race between Chicago and Wisconsin
was close from the start and oiot until
Wisconsin had got three points as
second in the relay was the result de
termined. Even the five points taken
by Chicago in the final event could
not overcome Wisconsin's margin.
Simpson the TIper Star.
Missouri made a creditable show
ing, mainly through the work of
Simpson, who broke two hurdle rec
ords. The Tigers scored two more
points in the low hurdles when Dag
gy finished third. In the pole vault
Missouri made six points, with Floyd
first and Powell fourth. The relay
team finished third and Niedorp was
fourth in the quarter-mile.

second the 120-yard high hurdle mark
formerly held by Nicholson of Mis
souri. He cleared the high sticks in
15 flat, tying the world's record. By
one and one-fifth seconds he smashed
the 220-yard hurdle record held by
Fletcher of Notre Dame.
Ivan Myers of DePauw ran the mile
in 4:191-5, breaking the conference
record by one and three-fifths sec
onds. Campbell of Chicago took two
seconds off the half-mile record of
Henderson of Illinois. Mason of Il
linois lowered the record for the two
mile run by nine seconds. He was
forced to this feat by Watson of Min
nesota, who crowded him to his full
Xen "Record in Relay.
For the first time in his career
Stiles of Wisconsin broad-jumped

ifornia, breaking the record in this
event Chicago's relay squad made
better time by 13-4 seconds than
Illinois and Leland Stanford, which
had been tied for record honors.
Ward and Knight of Chicago

Blair of Chicago and Ward equalled
the 220-yard mark of Hahn of Michi
gan. Results Accurately Predicted.
It had been conceded from the out
set that Wisconsin and Chicago would
fight for first honors, while, it was
predicted after the preliminaries yes
terday that Missouri and Illinois
would battle for third place. The Wisconsin-Chicago
duel was waged bit
terly from the start.

Simpson's time in the 220-yard hurdle
rare. The account of the meet, as re

lowering the conference record by one

ghes him the time of :24 3-3. As the old
conference record was :24 4-3. It would
npiear that he finished In :23 3-3 If he

NOTE MAYp WAY
President Approves Message
to Germany and Sends It
to Secretary Bryan.
I!y United Press
WASHINGTON, June 5. The Amer
ican rejoinder to the German reply to
the protest against submarine war
fare was completed tonight. Because
of the secretive policy of the Secre
tary of State, It is not known when
it will be delivered to the German
foreign secretary. There is a report
that the note has already been start
ed toward Berlin, but officially all the
information that was given out was
that the President today placed his
approval on the note and sent it di
rectly by trusted messenger to the
State Department Under the rules,
it must be handed to Secretary Bryan.
The note reaffirms the American po
sition under international law. Not a
single concession is made. Germany
is asked to recognize that the United
States will protect her citizens at all
times. It frankly states that the ques
tions under discussion are not sub
ject to arbitration.
It is probable that there will be no
more official information concerning
the note until It Is handed to the Ger
man foreign secretary, von Jagow.

"DON'T BE CARELESS"
Pure Water Supply, Proper
Sewage Disposal and Vacci
nation Are Safeguards.
The floods which have recently
done so much damage in various parts
of Missouri will increase the danger
of typhoid fever, which has been
quite prevalent in the state for the
last two years, according to Dr. M. P.
Ravenel, professor of bacteriology
and preventive medicine at the Uni
Doctor Ravenel also says that tho
season when typhoid is prevalent is
coming on, and he warns everyone
to take precaution against the dis
ease. "Typhoid fever is always caused by
carelessness or negligence in regard
to the disposal of sewage," says Doc
tor Ravenel. "It is everywhere a
disease for the health authorities to
deal with, and prevent by Insuring a
pure water supply and the proper dis
posal of the sewage.
"However, we have another safe
guard which has given remarkable
results anti-typhoid vaccination. This
consists of three Injections which are
given at Intervals of ten days. There
Is but little discomfort attending the
injections and the protection is al
In the United States Army last
year, consisting of more than 90,000
men, there was only one case of ty
phoid in a vaccinated soldier, accord
ing to Doctor Ravenel, and in our
army and navy, consisting of prac
tically 130.000 men, there were only
nine cases of typhoid fever in 1913, a
result which has not been attained
anywhere else in the world. Several
of these cases have occurred In the

RAfNS CHECK PESTS
IN WHEATAND CORN
June Crop Report Shows Fair
Prospects for a Good
FLOODS HARM SOME
Water Is Receding n Time
for Re-planting Conditions
For the first time in two yoars ev
ery section of Missouri has sufficient
moisture for growing crops. This is
in pleasing contrast with the con
dition of a year ago, says the report
issued yesterday from the office of
the secretary of the State Board of
Agriculture, when almost the entire
state was in need of rain and when
Insect pests were attacking almost
every growing crop.
In some sections, "the report con
tinues, especially in the northwest
and west-central parts, the rainfall
in the last dozen da-s of May has
been excessive, putting thousands of
acres of growing crops under water.
Many cultivated fields on uplands are
badly eroded. At Columbia the rain
fall for Uie month was 6.32 inches, as
compared with 1.37 Inches In May
last year. Rainfall of 10 to 12 inches
is reported in some sections.
While considerable damage has
been done by the rains, the benefit
will offset this many fold. The floods
are receding In time for replanting.
The rains have materially checked
the ravages of the chinch bugs and
other insect pests.
Wheat Conditions Have Improved.
Wheat conditions are 69.8 per cent
normal. This is a gain of almost two
points since the special report of
May 20, leaving a loss of slightly
more than 20 points for the month.
The slight increase in condition since
the rains will be offset by flood loss
and decreased acreage from other
causes, uenerany speamng, me iei-
ist wheat producing counties in a ten-
year average are reporting low con
ditions. This may reduce the indi
cated yield for the state. Recent im
provements are. mainly in the late
wheat. Indications of rust are caus
ing some anxiety. Furthermore, heavy
rains during the Howerlng period
were not good for heavy yields.
The condition of wheat one year
ago was 82.6 per cent. The ten-year
average for June 1 is 80.7. By sec
tions, the crop conditions now are
estimated: Northeast, 80; northwest,
71; central, C6; southwest, 60, and
southeast, 72. Harvest in the extreme
southern part of the state will open
by the middle of June. For the state
as a whole, wheat will ripen from
one to two weeks later than last year.
Nine-tenths of the Missouri corn
crop is planted. This 'Is 4 per cent
I advance of the ten-year average.
The stand is excellent, except In ov
erflowed or badly washed fields. The
condition or the growing plants is
85.4, about 5 per cent above the ten-
year average. By sections, corn con
ditions are: Northeast, 82; northwest,
77; central, 91; southwest, 87; south
east, 90. Planting progress Is: North
east, 90; northwest, 85; central, 95;
southwest, 92; southeast, 91. Indica
tions are that the corn acreage will
be from 1 to 2 per cent larger than
last year, when It was 7,421,600 acres.
Good Yield of Small Grain Expected.
Oats are making a satisfactory
growth since the rains. Present con
ditions are about 85 per cent, against
63 per cent a year ago. The first
cutting of alfalfa and clover 13 excel
lent, though much alfalfa has been
damaged by rain. Clover is fine. Tne
condition of clover Is 88 per cent.
Timothy conditions are 81 per cent;
alfalfa, 89; rye, 86; barley, 92. Blue-
grass is coming out with good pros
pects. The tobacco acreage is esti
mated at 72 per cent of the 1914 crop;
the cotton acreage at 77 per cent, and
the potato acreage at 98. The out
look for a potato crop is the best in
The peach crop in the northern half
of the state promises less than 25 per
cent of a normal yield, but in the
southern part the prospects are for
an abundant yield. Indications are
that there will be a fair apple crop
throughout the state. Conditions are
lowest in the southwestern part,
where Ben Davis apple will give a
light yield. Small fruit is reported
abundant, though dry weather .fol
lowed by excessive rains have been
bad for strawberry crops.
The average wool clip for the state
Is estimated at 6.7 pounds. Good
prices prevail, the average farm sales
being at 251-2 cents. The shortage
in all meat animals continues. There
are only 72 per cent as many cattle
on feed as last year and only 66 per
cent as many hogs. Feeders, after
opoftiting at a loss last fall, are slow
to stock up. In some localities there
are not enougli cattle to eat the grass.
