Outdoor Track Work Will Begin This
A meeting of all men who are in
terested in track athletics was held In
Ihe chapel yesterday morning. From
the -interest shown. o -far this year
the university will not want for an
abundance of material to make up for
the loss of several of last year's stars.

record-breaking track team was bril

Dunlnp, Burrus, and Minor have left

St. Louis football game, will probably
not be able to do anything with the
weights this year. To offset these
