Captain Johnson of the track team has decided that the track athletes will not take part in any indoor races during the entire season. No indoor relay team will be formed and the half a dozen invitations which have been received will be declined. The annual indoor games have also been given up. The candidates will be called out about Feb. 1, and James Robinson will take charge of them. The weight candidates, who are working with Mr. Flanagan, will enter some of the indoor meets of the present season, but the runners will not. It is believed that fully two hundred candidates will begin training when Captain Johnson's call is issued.
