But J. Wilkes jones tnought not and induced tho Mexican philanthropist to offer the $1,600 trophy to the students' Judging team. This was a walkaway for Iowa, where Jones came from last. The Iowa students took the solid silver bust of President ri. back to Ames, and there It remains. As It was offered for students' Judging teams, and there will be no further contests, the question arises whether Ames will Insist on holding the trophy permanently or offering It as a prize for some other com petition. None of the other agricultural" roller. pretends to give the training In Judging wnicn tne towa State college gives. Whether Manager Jones knew this or not when he decided to give the handsome Domlnguez trophy to a students' Judging team is a matter of conjecture. The solution of the problem probably will be that the students' team whih after consulting Zeferlno nomlnguei, will otrer the trophy for some purpose and thus enable the big prize to be passed around.
