POCKET BILLIARD CHAMPION
Big Nine Colleges Prepare for
First Conference Track Meet
Strong Teams to Be in Field
Erookiugs, S. D.. April 10. The
first conference track and field meet'
of the North Central Intercollegiate
conference will be held at the South
Dakota State college athletic field
here May 27, with teams represent
ing eight members of the conference
Although it is too early for track
and fieid coaches to make accurate
predictions regarding the success of
their teams, all have put their mc:i
through indoor workouts, and now
have started outside work.
With the exception of Crcighton
university, all the institutions that
will be represented have developed
track and field teams previous to
this season. At Crcighton, Coach
Charles Moriarty is working with
collcge-grcen 'men, some of whom
are showing speed in the dashes, and
he hopes to develop point winners
in the field events.
Morningside Has Stars.
Morningside college, at Sioux
City, has developed many smart
runners under Coach J. M. Saundcr
son, who has sent winners into the
fays more frequently than any other
entry. Saunderson is strong tor the
half-mile event and is txpected to
furnish the fastest competition in
this crjtry. His quarter milcrs should
also push those of other schools,
and he usually develops good field
At Vermilion, Coach John W.
Stewart has a group of veteran track
and field men, among whom are al
most sure point winners in the
dashes, the pole vault, the high jump
and the javelin throw.
Coach Henry Bell, now at Dcs
Moines university. Des Moines, has
a habit of turn'me out good track
tmen. In Johnson, he has one ot the
best half milers and 44U-yard runners
:n the middle west.' While 'Johnson
was at North High school in that
city, he won the state championship.
Bell is expected to enter point win
ners in the weights, dashes and
hurdles, as well.
Track to Be Fast.
The North Dakota entries, the.
University of North Dakota at
Grand Forks and the State Agri
cultural, college at Fargo, are ex
pected to send some fast men.
Coach Paul Davis, at the university,
has' some -good men in 11. events,
and Coach Stanley Borleske. at ;the
Fargo institution; has a similar line
up. Both? teams, however, will be
handicapped because of a later out
door start than the other conference
members, because of weather condi
tions, x '
St Thomas college, St. Paul, has
had several tract teams that' hve
shown to good advantage.. Coach
Handles Billiard Wonder Will
Play In Exhibition Matches Here
George H. Sutton, -the, handless
billiard wonder, -will meet George
E. Spears, straight rail king, ; iu ex:
hibition matches -Wednesday after
noon and night at the Academy bil
liard parlors. Spears played here
last year, but Sutton has not ap
peared here in years.
To those who have never had a
chance to see-Sutton play, it may
seem impossible- that a man without
hands could learn to manipulate a
billiard -cue. Sutton not only does
it,. but does it with such skill that he
ranks s one of. the leading balkline
stars. At New -York city he made
the world's highest run of 799 at 18-2
balkline. ' In addition to playing bil
liards Sutton is an expert penman,
a cartoonist of merit, an expert rifle
and pistol shot, plays golf,' drives
his own auto- and does numerous
other seemingly impossible feats
without hands. ...
Spears has held the straight rail
championship for a number of years
and is a favorite with the local fans,
having appeared here several times
the last few years. He has a pro
gram of over 200 fancy shots and
will display his skill in that line after
the match games with Sutton.
Sutton and Spears are playing here

count. His tern will be strong in
the weight and pole vault events,
with some point winners in the track
The track here will be one of the
fastest in the conference this season.
It is of the cinder variety, quarter
mile, with a good 220-yard straight
away, wide enough for eight full size
lanes. A new grandstand" ( will be
constructed along the straightaway,
which, in addition to the stands al
ready constructed is expected to ac
comodate the largest crowd ever
recorded at a track meet in South
Sidney, Neb., April 10. (Special.)
A move has been started to revive

with Kimball, Totter, Sidney, Lodge
pole, Julesburg and Dalton in the
