NEW HAVEN, February 14.--T. L. Shevlin, 1906, who played end on the football team last fall, has been appointed temporary captain of the freshman track team. The separation of the freshman from the regular track squad is an innovation which it is believed will allow more thorough coaching and better development of these candidates. About 125 men from the upper classes reported for the University team, and the addition of the freshman squad brings the total number of track candidates up to a little over 200.
