The History of Harvard's Commencement, Explained

Track Athletics.

For the past week or two most of the attention paid to the track athletes at the gymnasium has been given to the men who entered for the Tech. games and for the sports of the Second Regiment and Yale at New Haven. Unfortunately for Harvard, as stated in yesterday's CRIMSON, the Tech. games have fallen through, and several Harvard, men besides losing the chance of winning places in those games, will be unable to enter the games at New Haven which will take place tomorrow evening. The original number entered from Harvard for these latter sports has been lessened by two or three men who from illness and other causes have gone out of training. The other men will leave Cambridge for New Haven tomorrow. They have been doing fairly good work under Mr. Lathrop's charge, and ought to make a good showing at the sports.

The candidates for the Mott Haven team are doing regular work every day. For the last few weeks the main body has been lessened very considerably by the men who have been doing the special work for the B. A. A. Tech., and Yale games, Beginning next Monday, however, they will all go through the same general style of training. The men are divided into squads some of which practice in the morning and the others in the afternoon. The main body, which after the Yale and Second Regiment games will probably be raised to about sixty men, goes to work at about half-past four. They go through the regular dumbbell and chest-weight exercise under Captain Sturgis, and then take a brisk run around the track. After this they divide for the special work which is under the personal direction of Mr. Lathrop.

It is yet very early in the season and impossible to predict what place Harvard will take at the intercollegiate games. The rule passed at the last meeting of the intercollegiate athletic association to the effect that third prizes will be given and will count in points for the cup is a very important one. All the colleges will probably send more men than usual to compete, for the larger number they enter, the more chance each college will have to gain points. Harvard will not be behind the other colleges in furnishing men, and it now looks as it her representation would be very considerably larger than last year. Princeton has some very good men this year and will probably get two first prizes; Columbia, also, will be in the front and ought to take as many first places. Yale can hardly get more than one first prize. Harvard has no men at all who, from their record, are sure for first places, but she has men that stand a reasonable chance for second prizes in many of the events.
