lu the NorthwooU high school rooting section The reference wis prompted by a friend who made the observation while the writer was watching the basket ball games i C H Dwelle of Northwood has sent a note remindful of the fact that the Northwood teams are Viking outfits Hence he says its only natural that the Norse beauties act as cheer leaders and compose the major portion of the cheering section

yard sprint to gain back the ad vantage of 30 yards that Venzke hat taken In addition to finishing firsl at meters he kept right on junning expecting the judges to check his time at tho mile mark hoping to set a new mile record Tho meter time was so tho judges let the checking go but unofficial timers caught him at for tha mile The mile is yards longer than the meter race Arith metic shows

Sports Editor TAMPA March 19 Although not overlooking the ad vantage of plugging the gaps in the varsity lineup this year in a spirit ed attempt to climb out of last place in the National league the Cincinnati Reds also arc concentrat ing on a huge freshman class of ball players with a view to develop ing a championship contender by 1936 Upwards of 50 earnest and ambi tious athletes have been corralled this spring by the aggressive new ownership of the Reds headed by Powel Crosley the radio mag nate personally directed by a red headed dynamo Larry MncPhail and with Bob OFarrell long a fa miliar backstopping figure as the new manager We are sticking pretty much to the tried and tested performers on our roster this says OFar rell because our first ambition is to pull the Reds out of last place We are strengthened in several positions notably at second base with Tony Piet and in the outfield with the addition of Adam Com orosky both from the Pirates We parted with Red Lucan in the deal but he won only 10 games for the club lost year and I believe Dazxy Vance will win more than that for us this season Old Daz looks to be in great shape Meanwhile we are proceeding with plans to build up a young ball club which by 1936 should be a dis tinct pennant The Reds already have convinced baseball folk that they have plenty of bntting power this year The whole camp has been going arounfj with Its chest out since the Redlegs shellacked the New York Giants in Uicir first exhibition game VETS AND ROOKIES LIMBER UP FOR ANOTHER PENNANT CHASE EAST PLANS TO CELEBRATE WIN Disappointed
