About twenty men are now training daily for the shot put, under the direction of Mr. Perrie. Mr. Perrie thus far has not wished the men to attain any great distance, but rather to perfect themselves in style at easy distances. The men take six or seven puts apiece, practicing between times in getting a quick movement without the shot. The following men have shown the most improvement in style and distance: F. S. Mills '99, S. G. Ellis 1900, R. Garland '99, R. C. Heath 1900, P. Jaffray '99, W. D. Hennen '98, L. R. Brine '98.
There will be a shot putting contest in February similar to the one which was held last year.
Whenever the weather permits hammer throwing is practiced from a wooden platform on Holmes Field.
