McLean, of '00, and Bach of '01, have
their men working hard and have about
picked their relay teams. The success
of '00 in track affairs iast year makes

Oxford's Lame Excuse.
Oxford's declination of the challenge
of the American universities for an in-
ternational contest this summer ap-
pears to be based upon the opinion that
the amateur status of college athletics
upon this side of the water is not be-
yond question. For example, the Lon-
don Times remarks: "After the meet-
ing between the New York Athletic
Club and the London Athletic Club, the
general opinion among university ath-
letes here was that Oxford and Cam-
bridge had better confine their competi-
tions to themselves, until they could
establish beyond a shadow of doubt
that their opponents were both ama-
teurs and students in the full sense of
the words."-Brown Daily Herald.
