A very enthusiastic meeting was held last night in response to the call for candidates for the Mott Haven team. A large number of graduates, some of whom were point winners, and others merely interested in track athletics, were present and spoke of the great interest felt by all graduates for the different teams.
Captain Bigelow briefly outlined the indoor work for the season, which will be somewhat lighter than heretofore. No men will be allowed to enter indoor games after March 1, in order that the men may have a thorough rest before the work on the track begins. The dual games with Pennsylvania have been given up, as the experience last year shows that three sets of games in one month are too many.
Mr. Lathrop then spoke of the training and of the good it would do men even if they did not make the team. On account of the increasing number of candidates there will be several special coaches this year for some of the events. These will coach the men particularly on style.
G. B. Morrison, the chairman of the meeting, spoke of the rising interest in track athletics, which are now considered as one of the four chief sports.
Among the other speakers of the evening were Dr. Frank Wells '64, the donor of the Wells Cup; G. Wells '86; W. F. Garcelon, who will coach the hurdlers; L. Frothingham '94, B. G. Waters '94, Dr. Bradford, a member of the athletic committee; and C. Curtis, who stroked two winning 'Varsity crews. Mr. Perry, who will coach the weight putters, was also present.
The following one hundred and fifty-four men handed in their names as candidates for the team:
