the hands of 500 leading college anc'
universites of the country today an
. .
already all of the Western Confer-
ence and Missouri Valley Conferenc
teams, as well as numerous others
have signified their intention of en
tering, according to reports to Majo
John L. Griffith, of the Universit.
of Illinois.
Major Griffith is chairman of th
arrangements committee, which als
includes A. A. Stagg of Chicago anc
Tom Jones, Director of Athletics a
the University of Wisconsin. The
universitl of California, Leland Stan
ford, Occidental, Washington, Vander
bilt. Centre, Mississippi and Texa;
University have also signified theii
intention of competing, Major Grif
fith announced.
Last year the N. C. A. A. stagec
the first annual national collegiat
meet on Stagg Field with 64 team.'
represented and established itself as
a gathering place each year to deter
mine the national championship tracl
team and also the national champions
in each event. The University oi
Illinois, with its well balanced track
aggregation, won last year's meet
and has its eye on a second champ
ionship 'his season, although the
competition, with the expected in
creased number of entries will bt
much keener.
The fact that 500 invitations and
cance, for all other meets m the
country are closed - affairs with th(
exception of ' relay carnivals. For
example, the I. C. A. A. A. A. is open
only to its members; conferences hole
meets for their members., It is i
growing feeling, in fact, on the pari
of the members of the "Big Ten" and
other conferences that only its mem
bers should be allowed to compete.
There are 15 or 20 outstanding con
ferences in the country at the present
time, and the N. C. A. A. track and
field meet is the only one coming
after these are completed.
By the date of this year's meet
team championships and individual
champions in the various states and
sections will have been determined,
and the national meet provides a
meeting place of the title holders to
compete for national supremacy.
No satisfactory scheme nas Deen
worked to determine national champ
ions in football, baseball and basket
ball, but in this meet the National
iwiot Athletic Association nas
mvirled a meeting place for the
nation's best in the most centrally

"That was the remarkable tribute

the correspondent in Bulgaria of the
