About fifty men responded to the call for candidates for the Mott Haven team, yesterday afternoon, meeting at 3.30 in the Trophy room at the gymnasium. There was a decided lack of "heavy-weights," which betokens a weakness in shot-putting and hammerthrowing that must be overcome if Harvard is going to win at New York next spring. Tug-of-war men also were at a premium, and it is to be hoped more men of the heavy stamp will turn up. The following men have handed in their names as candidates:
