To Meet
It may cost Metcalf something
to turn his back on Jesse OVfrens.
The Ohio sensation recalls an in
cident sometime ago when he met
Metcalf in Chicago and running
up to the idol of the cinder path,
proffered his hand to congratu
late the wizard of Marquette.
Owens, who was then a high
school lad was snubbed by the
great Metcalf, who turned his
back, the story goes.
A week from Friday the two
will meet in Milwaukee in a 100
yard feature attraction and
Owens declares that he will “run
Metcalf off the track.” Owens,
breaker of records, declares that
he will make good.
ntjrcia l. g,. A. A A. A. Ilia
The Ohio State star, after
breaking three world records and
tying another in the Wtestern con
ference meet lust Saturday at
Ann Arbor' Mich, was invited to
day by Harvard to take part in
the I. C. A. A A. A. meet at Ilar
vurd Saturday. It was the firsl
time an outsider hase ever been
invited to participate in the east
ern classic.
Owens turned down the invita
tion, however, after a conference
with Coach I.arry Snyder and
Athletic Director L. W. St. John.
“After last Saturday's per
formances,” Snyder said, “it may
sound paradoxical to say Jesse i
not in the best of shape. Put that
is the fact”
.'•Suffira From Buck Injury
Owens, the coach said, is still
suffering from an injured back,
incurred more than two weeks age
when he and a fraternity brothei
tumbled down a flight of stair?
while wrestling. He has been un
der a physician’s care ever since
and has been ordered to refrain
from all training until Friday.
“He is taking heat treatment:
for the injury,” Coach Snyder
said, “but rest will prove the big
healer and that’s what he’s going
to get.”

Trouble Brews with N. Y. Cubans
As Com. Morton Sends out Edict
Where they play this week:
May 30: New York at Brook

Chicago at Homestead Griys
(Greenlee Field); Columbus at
Newark; 2 games in all cities.

cases and refuted them in otters.
New York Cubans just about
completed the circuit before
opening at home and despite the
fact that they are in bottom po
sition, drew a higher number of
paid admissions than any other
club in the loop. The scrappy
Islanders also have the distinc
tion of producing the first play
ers to be fined or suspended. Gar
cia was suspended for three days
in Pitsburgh, for grabbing Um
pire Crump. Perez, second base
man, nas been nned $20 and si's

Adding to the jinx Which has
lounded the Pompez outfit, is the
unsettled controversy over Dick
Lundy, assigned to the Cubans by
>V Greenlee, when diffe ences with
his Newark employed < mid not be

cies, but forbidden 1 Commis

games until further instructions

nUdisputed champs of last year

their record on a recent trip to
Pittsburgh. Whereas, formerly,
Crawfords were always content

to his belt, which included a de

Ten members of the New Wen

team will be out at Stagg Field,
Saturday June 1st, seeking to

squad. The cream of the speed

game from the Cubans and two
