Editors Daily Crimson:

In Wednesday's CRIMSON was a letter from Mr. Sturgis urging men to enter the winter meetings. It seems to me that the executive board of the H. A. A. has the remedy against a small number of entries in their own hands. If they would make such events as are susceptible of it, handicap events instead of scratch, the number of entries would, I am sure, be increased fivefold; the interest to the public would be greater; likewise to all but a very few of the contestants, and the money received from entrance fees would be much increased. At present there is one man in the high jump who is away ahead of his competitors; the same is true of the fence-vault and putting the shot. Harvard men do not care to compete out of charity any more than any other men-the success of handicaps is shown by the entries to the Boston A. A. games next Saturday. Yours,

KENNETH BROWN, '91.
