Preparations for Winter Carnival

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The captains of the four class relay teams which will compete at the Winter Carnival to be held in Mechanics Hall on February 23 have been chosen as follows: 1911.--H. Jacques, Jr.; 1912.--W. H. Fernald; 1913.--H. P. Lawless; 1914.--W. L. Allen, Jr. There will be fifteen men on each relay team, each man to run two laps or 260 yards. The race will be run in two heats with the winners of the preliminaries meeting in the finals. A man who wishes to have his name withheld has given the sum of $250 to be awarded as a scholarship to a needy student who is a member of the class winning the race.

The practice work leading up to the trials for these class teams will begin next Monday afternoon on the board track on Soldiers Field. The trials for the Senior and Junior teams will be held on Monday, February 20; and for the Sophomores and Freshmen on Tuesday, February 21. In these trials all men will be required to run in speakers so that it will be equally fair for each competitor. When the team is selected men may decide whether or not they wish to wear spiked shoes or sneakers in the race.

In addition to the list of events published in Monday's paper a handicap 1000-yard run will be held.
