YALE'S TRACK ATHLETICS.

Prospects are Good.- New Men Show Up Well.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Yale track team's training came to an end with the last of the hare and hound runs. The fall work brought out many newcomers, 39 of the 97 men who competed in the fall games being from the entering classes. The best performances were made by A. H. Richardson, captain of the Andover Academy track team of a year ago, by E. Waller, in the high jump, and by Ira Richards, Jr., in the sprints.

J. J. Peters, a new man, showed up well in the hurdles, and J. W. Falls won several of the paper chases. He will probably train for the long distance events in the intercollegiate games. Charles T. Dudley, the halfback who made the touchdown against Princeton, is a fast man on the track. The team as a whole will be called out after the Junior Promenade, and among other men who will train are Graff, Fischer and Byers in the sprints; Lewis, Buckingham, Speer, Palmer and W. Johnson, in long distance runs; C. D. Cheney and Weston in the broad jump; Buscom and Johnson in the pole-vault; Sheldon and Beck in the hammer and shot.

A feature of the winter term will be work in the gymnasium in putting the shot. Cups will be offered for the winners, and liberal handicaps will be made for new men. Some of the freshmen who have signified their intention of training are E. E. Marshall, F. G. Brown and G. F. Cadwalader, Yale's football centre trio. Marshall and Cadwalader were excellent shot-putters at Lawrenceville, although their training was not systematic. Brown promises well.

Chadwick, the other guard, has represented Yale for four years on the track, and is therefore ineligible to compete again next spring. Graff, who sprained a tendon in the games last year, has not been allowed to do any work since in order that his ankle might regain its strength. He is now as strong as ever, and will be Yale's mainstay in the sprints the coming season.
