Zink I SCHOOI^ BUNCHED ON TRACK The Midlland Trail Athletic, and Intellectual Meet, held at Lawrence¬ vllle on Friday of last week, was won by Olney. Flora was second, Bridge¬ port thtrd and Lawrencevllle fourth. The official scores were: Olney 93 2-3 Flora 74; Bridgeport 62 1-3; Law¬ rencevllle 39. The meet was opened at 9:00 a. m. wben examinations in various sub¬ jects were given to the contestants for honors In that branch ot school work, at the Lawrencevllle H. S. The standing in points for this sec¬ tion ot the work was: Ottney, 29; Lawrencevllle, 24; Flora 21, Bridge¬ port 4. Iva Lusk of Flora won first place in the American History examination with a grade of 92. Bestow of Flora was third in the Physics examination, making a grade of 92, the winner having pulled down a count ot 96 in the event. Flora was second to Ol¬ ney in the Algebra exam, a grade of 90 being made by Miss Olbson. The winner made 93. Miss Campbell, of the local school was second in the Qeometry examination, making the high grade of 96 against a 98 hung up by another contestant. Flora tail¬ ed to place In Latin, due probably to the tact that our contestant had not had work covering l)art of the ques¬ tion asked. It will be noticed by the results be¬ low that Bridgeport was able to place In but one event, second in Latin, Track Results Uncomfortably Clorn* The track and field meet was held at the Havoline ball park immediate¬ ly after dinner before a very small crowd. Enthusiasm was at tbe ebb tide no yells being given by any of the outside contingents and the tew at the meet from Lawrencevllle were so silent that the Sphinx is as a boiler factory working full blast, in comparison. A few feeble squawks were set off during the mile run, but that was all—"Came a tapping, as of someone gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door. Only this and nothing more." Track Wins Hobnailed Powder Puff About the biggest Joke ot the meet was the cinder track where the race events were run off. It was of cin¬ ders freshly and, loosely laid, around the inside ot the fence enclosing the l>all park and for perfection it cer¬ tainly entitled to an issue ot the hob¬ nailed powder puff and a keg ot gun powder. There was room on it for four to run abreast It two ot them ran sMeways and the outside lane wns all fixed for potato planting as soon as the meet was over. The un- luck thing of the day was that time after time Flora contestant drew this out side lane and they had about as much chance winning their event as an ice manufacturer would have at the North Pole. FotT Rwords Broken In Mi-el Four records were punctured in the meet. Taylor of Flora heaved the discus for a new mark ot 110 ft, 0 in., Blotter of Flora broad Jumped 20 feet. 4 1-4 Inches, Fiscus ot the Bridgeport high school stepped the half mile in 2:09 and 2-5. Last but by no means least, the attendance re¬ cord was broken' in reverse. This part of the program sunk so low that it will take an official recount to de¬ termine Just what mark was made. The final results of the track and field meet was; 1st, Olney 38 2-3; 2nd, Bridgeport 38 1-3; Srd, Flora 38; 4th, Lawreflceville 11. The winner ot the meet was not de¬ cided until the halt mile relay was run. Flora was ahead at this time and second place would have cinched the meet tor the orange and blue, hut the best our gang could do was third and we landed third In the af¬ ternoon's festivities. Flora would have won the meet anyhow, but tor one thing. In the finals of the lOO-yard dash Keith of Flora was running second lo King of Lawrencevllle and was alep ahead of Gtay ot Olney, who was running in third place. This would undoubted¬ ly have been the ftnlsh ot the three men, but when about twelve feet from the finish line Gray threw out one of his hands, grabbing Kieth across the chest and throwing him out of stride and position. It was a plain foul, according to all who saw it but the judges ruled otherwise, claiming that the act in no way changed the reuilts of the race. They must have beeir of the opinion that Gray was only showing bis love tor Keith and put his arm around him to sort of brace him for the finish. Nice act, in the pig's eye. The exrta points thus awarded fo Olney won the meet for them. Olney has more Hick than Santa ClaMs has customers. Van Clevo's team was deprived ot second place in one of the SO-yard dash preliminaries, when the Judges tailed to see the Olney man finish in second position and awarded tbe posi¬ tion to another man. Flora (Strong in Field Eventn It was in the field events that Flo¬ ra strength was most manifest, Tay¬ lor and Blotter piling up a big score. Taylor was third in the shot put, first In the javelin witb a heave of 152 feet and tint in the disona with. 110 ft. 6 in. He also tied tor third In tbo higl} Jump with Blotter and an Olney man. He also flnlabed sec- NANY POPULAR YODNG PEOPLE ENTERED IN "MOVIE STAR" CONTEST Save Your Votes for your Friends and Help Them Win— Big Booster Days in Flora June 9th. 10th and Uth —The Days the Picture is Being Produced.—Citizens of Louisville, Clay City, Xenia, Cisne and Rinard to Take Part in Picture.
