There were twenty-eight athletes at the fair grounds yesterday afternoon to receive instruction from Trainer Murphy. Some of the men present were: Harvey, Spence, Cowen, VanDeventer, Duffy, Donohue, Sanderson, and Van Inwagen in the sprints; Hutchinson, Cooley and Sanderson in the long distance runs; de Pont, Van Inwagen and Stone in the high jump; and Gamble, Knaughton, de Pont and Sullivan in the shot putting. The men are rapidly improving and Mr. Murphy is very much pleased with the progress that is being made. He thinks that there is material enough in the Uhiversity to develop a winning team for the intercollegiate games. Gamble, in the shot put ting is a surprise. He has tried bu twice. last Friday and yesterday, anc lie beat the U. of M. record by nearly two feet. He made a put yesterday of over 37 feet. With practice he should put over 40 feet, which will take the intercollegiate easily. Mr. Murphy wants every athlete in college out next Tuesday Meanwhile he advises those wh have received instructions to trai every afternoon. Field Day will be held on May 30 Decoration Day. Gold and silve medals are offered for first and second places each event. There will be a number of Detroit athletes here to compete in the open events, and these contests will be well worth seeing. There is some talk of sending two or three U. of M. athletes to the inter-collegiate meeting at Berkely Oval in New York. If Gamble makes any improvement at all he is sure of first place in the shot putting.
