Now that spring is just around the corner it is high time those who go in for track and field athletics get started preparing themselves. College track athletes have already been in training for sometime past and are about ready for a record breaking season. Of course, the big end of their training has been indoors but as the weather warms up the outdoor conditioning begins. A word, in the form of a warning, to amateur athletes who do not have a coach to take care of them is in order. No one should go into athletic events seriously without first going through a conditioning campaign. After the in-
active winter season every one who has not followed an exercising program through that period will naturally be soft and out of condition, at least, for such strenuous exertions as running, jumping, and so forth.
