It rarely happens that a college track team goes on the field with every man in his best form, and the team which will represent us on the track today is no exception to this rule. In fact, when the winners of three first places in the intercollegiate meet last year are disabled by injuries, it can scarcely be considered up to its normal strength.
But in spite of these misfortunes, the University team is still strong, for it is backed by a large corps of second-string men. This will be the first real try-out of the season, and we believe the team will do better than the conditions would lead one to expect. If it wins this afternoon, and we are rather confident that it will, the victory will be due to the conscientious work of the men throughout the long season of training.
