BROWN WILL CUT FOREST FOR NEW ATHLETIC FIELD

Project, Modeled on "Soldiers Field", Will Have Five Football Fields

Fifteen acres of forest near Brown University will soon be cleared and levelled to make a new college athletic field, according to a statement issued by Mr. Paul C. de Wolfe of Providence, chairman of the Brown University Athletic Field Committee.

Plans for the new athletic ground, which will be much like Soldier's Field, include a university baseball diamond, three auxiliary baseball diamonds, five practice football fields, a running track and a training house. Although the new field must be cleared of trees and graded before construction can start, it is expected that all these projects will be completed before the opening of college in September 1924.

The new area will serve primarily as a site for the university baseball diamond, and stands for 6000 are included in the plans. In the future, moreover, it is expected that a stadium will also be constructed near the field to accomodate the University football and track teams.
