The New Athletic Improvements.

The New Athletic building on Homes Field is progressing rapidly, and when finished will be a valuable addition to Harvard Athletics. It is to be of plain brick, with a slate roof and skylights over the tank, cage, and courts. The entrance is from Holmes Field, the door opening into a large hall. Opposite the entrance is an open fire-place. The rowing tank is placed in the left wing and is designed after the one recently arranged. A large dressing room lined with lockers leads off the front of the rowing room. The right wing is occupied by a base ball cage, 80 feet long by 30 feet wide, and leading off from this is another dressing room also lined with lockers. Back of the hall on the right of the fire-places are two "Fives Courts," and a stairway leading to a large meeting room for the various athletic societies. One side of this is also lined with a double row of lockers, and has another large open fire-place and three long dormer windows opening on a balcony thirty feet long, which overlooks the baseball grounds.

On the left of the fire-places down stairs is a long corridor separated from the tank room by a row of small rooms including one for a shower bath, one for a rubbing room and a room of lockers, while between the corridor and courts are the boilers and heating apparatus.

It is expected that the building will be finished early in December. The architects are Longfellow and Harlow of Boston, and the building is to be built by the Cary fund.

The New Athletic Field back of Divinity Hall is nearly finished, and will be very useful as there is room enough for two diamonds or two football fields. Part of the land is owned by the college and part was leased with the option of buying, by former members of the Athletic Association.
