Work at Soldiers Field.

Several improvements are being made on Soldiers Field, which when completed will greatly improve both its appearance and its condition. A new cinder path 14 feet wide and about a mile long will encircle almost the entire field; and a path will also be built from the Newell Gate to the other side of the grounds. The waste ground known as Longfellow Marsh will be drained and filled in, and will probably be used in part of tennis courts. The remainder of the field will be leveled, graded and put into good shape for athletic grounds.

A small grand-stand has been built as an experiment near the baseball stands. The stand is built entirely of cement, supported by a steel frame, and is of the type which it is hoped to put up on the football field, if this experiment proves a success.
