Columbia College Notes.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The old Wheelock property in New York has been purchased by the trustees of Columbia College for a college athletic field. Besides baseball, football, and tennis fields, for which there is ample room on the grounds, a fine quarter mile running track will be laid out. Next fall the athletic teams will begin their first use of the ground and thereafter all the Columbia College games will probably be held on the new athletic field. In this way, the vexations and expense in trying to obtain suitable grounds in the city will be entirely obviated, and the advantages will be great for all branches of athletics, and men will undoubtedly be allowed to train, particularly for those sports in which Columbia has not hitherto made a very brilliant showing.

The tug-of-war team is practicing daily in the gymnasium. Robinson of the college surgeons is the only old man on the team, the new men being all from the School of Mines.
