Weston Field at Williamstown.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Great improvements have been made this fall in the athletic field presented to Williams college by the Hon. Byron Weston. The grounds, a great improvement on the old ones, are sufficiently large to furnish two foot ball fields, and give an excellent chance for base ball. This fall the donor has built a track which, as far as advantages go, will put Williams on an equal footing with her rivals. The track is oblong in shape, fifteen feet wide and a sixth of a mile in circuit. It is very carefully underdrained and is composed of pin gravel covered to a depth of nine inches with cinders. The track is so arranged that the finish of the races will be opposite the grand stand which is also just back of the catcher's position in base ball. The upper end of the field has been cut down so that there is little grade, and everything has been done to give the men the best possible chance for athletic practice and contests.
