The cinder track on Holmes Field was carefully raked and rolled on Saturday, and it was hoped that the regular training of the candidates for the Mott Haven team might begin yesterday. The sudden cold weather, however, has frozen the track and will probably prevent all use of it until Wednesday.
Yesterday all the men who came to the Gymnasium were sent out on the road in squads, each man being directed to run a distance suited to the event he is trying for. This work will continue today, but on Wednesday it is planned to take the men on the track and begin regular practice. If the weather is good the entire squad of three hundred men, many of whom have been told to rest during the winter, will be called out.
