The summer of ’16 found the Far Western Championships at San Diego. Partly for experience and partly to aid the Los Angeles Athletic Club team, I competed in those games, and though my help to the team was not of a very substantial order, I certainly gained experience. For there were many great stars in the sprints competing there. George Parker, one of the greatest 220 men who ever lived, was scheduled to run, and though he did not enter at the last moment. Howard Drew. the world champion was present, and two others who afterward attained great prestige, Henry Williams of Spokane and Morris l1. Kirksey of Stanford University, the most daring of all the knights of the table round.
