In view of the fact that the University of California has finally decided, by a vote of the student body, to send a team of ten men to compete in track events with the eastern colleges, a description of their team may at this time be interesting. Games have been finally arranged with Princeton and Pennsylvania, and they may possibly meet Chicago and Michigan. Below is given the personnel of the team with the records of the men:
