The club is organized withthe general purpose of encouragingamong its members political activity-in the' public interest. In carryingout that' purpose, it proposes for it­self some very definite forms of ac­tion.

Although handicapped bya rather sure hand, each of his throwsof the hammer went beyond 150 feet7 inches. His best discus throw was124 feet II 1-2 inches, while his shotput was 40 feet 8 3-4 inches. Parry isin good condition, and should im­prove on these marks in competition.Gerry Williamson showed -up ingood form in the hammer throw,hurling the sixteen-pound weight 148feet. He' has been improving rightalong, and Parry believes he will be asure point winner in the dual meetsthis year. He will probably go, withParry, to Philadelphia."Burt" Gale tried out in hammerand' shot,' b.:st· '�';;;';';ot at a1\ :-'0 fo'rm,his best shot-put being 38 feet 3 1-4inches.In the trials for the one mile re-lay team the best work done by Mer­riam, 514-5 finishing strong withBarker and Tompkins fairly close.In the other heat Comstock, the oldHyde Park star, did the quarter in:54 4-5 with "Tommy Taylor second.Schommer and Richards showedfair form in the high jump, the form­er clearing the bar at 5 feet 101-2inches.Work in the broad jump and polevault was not particularly promising.Professor Stagg announced thatthis tryout would not be consideredfinal, chance being given everyonenext Wednesday.Chicago fared but poorly in thedrawing held last week for positionsin the relay carnival at Philadelphiadrawing the fourth place from thepole.

It intends to bring tothe club, to talk to it, men who know .: how the game of politics is played,who know how to organize a pre­cinct and to get out the vote.

It docs not matter which sideof the fence a man is on, in a parti­sian sense; he can be useful to thepublic in one party as another. It isof the utmost importance, however,that a man who has some inclina­tion in doing his part to make pili­tics what they should be, shall notbe frightened away by his first con­tact with politics as they are.

(Continued on Page Four) CALLS ON STUDENT BODYTO AID THE TRACK TEAMDirector Stagg Issues Letter of Ap­peal Calling for MoreCandidatesExplains Situation and Asks for Bet­ter Spirit-Fraternities areEnlistedDirector A. A. Stagg, has issued acan for more candidates for the trackteam. Letters have been sent to thefraternities and other organizations inan effort to bring from chaos and tomake it an organization that willmake a respectable showing in the\ spring meets. A letter is addressedto the Daily Maroon in which Pro­fessor Stag� points out the weaknessand strength. The letter follows:t" Chicago, April 21. '06Editor of the Daily Maroon :-"TheUniversity has lost nearly all of lastyear's track team, there being atpresent only four point winners inthe Conference meet, now in collegeand three of these men at presentare not available to the team. It isimpossible for one of these men tobe used this year and one other isout on account of parental objection.The other point winner we hope willbecome eligible before the dualmeets begin."Looking at it optimistically, themost that we can count on from lastyear's team would' be eleven pointsout of the fifty-four which we won inthe Conferdnce Meet. At presentthere are only a few men trying forthe team; a-n'd . there-is' tiardfy an event - - "in which there is strong cornpetitiin.Only" one man has appeared for thedashes and only two .for; the hurdles.In the distance runs there is a saddearth of material in spite of the factthat there are no. stars trying" forthese events. There ought .to be asquad of fifteen to twenty men work-ing for th distance events, insteadof the two or three who are now try-ing. There is no place where thereis a better opening for athletic hon­ors than in these events since there: is no competition and there is no ex­perienced runners, so that no onewould feel outclassed in trying forthem. Distance running is an eventin which men are "discovered" morethan in any other event since it doesnot depend upon skill or form. butrather upon the natural endownmentof heart and lungs and nervous sys­tem, which nature has given.Our first dual meet with Illinoisis only two weeks away from thismeet. and for the succeeding meetswith \V siconsin and Michigan andthe Inter-Collegiate, we must securesix of the best runners that we canpossibly get. I would, therefore, urgeupon every man, no matter whetherhe has ever tried distance running ornot, to get out and help make a team.There witt be opportunity to do train­ing any time in the morning or inthe afternoon under suitable direc­tion. I would be glad to cinsult withany student on the subject., A. A. Stagg.The call sent to the fraternitiesembodies the same sentiment andstatements expressed in the letter tothe Daily Maroon. In part the let­ter follows:"We must get a bir;.t bunch of menout for the distance events or wehave no chance in our dual meets.(Continued on Page Three) .-.- ._- --- .. �- .... :THE DAILY MAROON, CHICAGO, TUESDAY, APRIL 24, 1906.ttbe 1DaU� maroonOlicia!

Last yearthe Midway team secured five pointsto the Badger's 40 and it is said thatin order not to have this humiliatingdefeat to Prof. Alonzo Stagg's pro­teges repeated, the Maroons will nott.ak� part. This necessities the meetbeing held at some other place. Madi­son was suggested, but the other col­leges find it impossible to come. Illi­nois and Grinnell sent. word that theycould not come because of the dis­tance and expense; Minnesota has nofunds while Nebraska is the onlyuniversity which sent a favorable re­ply."The fact of the case are these: Amonth or so ago letters were writtenby the athletic authorities of the Uni­versity to all the western institutionsthat have ever entered teams in agymnastic contest, with a view tofinding out how many colleges wouldhe represented in the annual meet, ifheld. Replies to these letters indi­cated that \Yi:-;consin was really theonly institution that would guaranteeto send a full team to represent it;the other si x institutions were eithervery (1lluhtful whether they could, orH'ry certain that they could not. senda full team.It wa s not strang<.' t hcn. since theint cresr in the work was so veryslight. and the prosTwcts of even afair repres('nlatiYe so cxtrcmclv un­certain that the Univcrsity (Ii;' notfeci justified in �I)ing- to the troubleand expense of hnl(ling- the gmynas­tic meet this year. haying as it many other athletic events thatwill he "fizzles."As to the other point about "Chi-" �I cago backing out" "in order not tohave this humiliating defeat," etc.,but little really need be said. We'rechartiable ; by all means let the Bad­gers boast themselve the championsof the wesf'-in gymnastics. And itwas partly for that reason that it hasbeen sugestcd to hold the contest atMadison; as the one athletic event ofthe year it certainly should prove alarger financial success than at theMidway,There are but two men in Chica­go's gymnastic team. As these twomen will probably represent the Uni­versity in the contest, whether heldhere or at Madison, and as defeatwill be even more "humiliating" inthe Badger town than here, we failto sec how to fear of this can becharged the decision not to hold thegymnastic contest at Chicago thisyear.(Continue .. t from Page One)-----_- -------- ---PRACTICAL POLITICS CLUBman of education is apt to do, simp­ly because politicians arc ordinarymen."The club intends, also, te, co-oper­ate, as the opportunity arises, withnational and municipal organizationswhich are working for civic improve­ment, such as the Civil Service Re­form, the National Municipal League,the Legislative and Municipal Voters'Leagues, the City Homes Associa­tion, the the Juvenile ImprovementLeague, . and many others.Finally, the club has planned to or­ganize groups of members interest­ed in similar phases of politics intocommittees, which may meet asthey arc inclined, to talk over devel­opments in their several fields. Suchcommittees will probably be orgnniz-.. ed so()n upon Primaries and E!��­"tious ; 'Municipal Government; 'Fran­chises, Taxation, Charities and Cor­rections, Courts, Civil Service, andothers.Membership is confiened to men inresidence, who are seriously interest­ed in politics, not for the sake of pri­vate interests, but for the sake of thecommonwealth.The first officers are as follows:President, H.
