WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY
IS LfVE MADE TO ORDER?
CI.-UTCW AT HIS HEART WHEN
Six schools have entered the
state intercollegiate track and
field meet to be held on Boyd
field Saturday, May 17. One or
two other school probably will en-
ter before the time of the meet.
Oklahoma will have no trouble
taking the meet, as Coach Soutar's
team overwhelmingly defeated the
Aggies in a dual meet held at Still-
water last Saturday. Central Nor- j
mal of Edmond, however, is a
strong contender against the Ok-
a'homa Aggies for second place,
as Central is sending as many men
as the A. & M. college. ,
The University track team has
broken three Southwestern con-
rerence records this year. Phil
White, Oklahoma City, hurled the
discus 124 feet, 10 inches; Miller
ran the half mile in 1:59 3-5 and
the relay team lowered the record
to 3:28 1-5.
If Oklahoma track men take the
meet here Saturday, and Coach
Soutar is confident they will the
1919 team will be the third all-vic-
torious aggregation produced at
the University this year, and the
second consecutive time that the
track team has been all-victorious.
The five schools that have al-
ready entered the meet besides the
university are as follows: Okla-
homa A. and M. college, Southeast-
ern Normal, Durant; Central Nor-
mal, Edmond; Southwestern Nor-
mal, Weatherford; Phillips Uni-

ous cats consumed by the picnick-
Tliis hayride was an enter-
tainment given by the juniors to
ti'e seniors, in consideration of the
seniors' approaching graduation.
Trying to Scare
Had Thieves A way
What can Norman flower gor-
deners do to protect their roses
from thieves? This is the question
uppermost in the minds of posey
lovers since recent raids on un-
protected beds of blossoms.
Not long ago a rose bush in the
yard of H. G. Lindsay was com-
pletely stripped of its blossoms,
and, although Mr. Lindsay has
offered a $25.00 reward, no one
has been apprehended for the
This is not the only instance of
vandilism. Among others, the tul-
ips from the flower beds sur-
rounding King Hall were continu-
ally pulled at night during tulip
