coinniuiul of Colonel U A. Watres nnd
It has not only bin warm support but
the support of every commissioned and
noa-cotuinlssliined olllcer in the res
ilient. The constitution, which has
been adopted. Is modelled after the
constitution of the athletic association
of the Twenty-thlr'fl regiment, of
llrooklyn, and the new orininlzatlon
will be ntaimged after the plans adopt
ed by thin name association. The board
of government consists of one rcpre
sentathe I tout each company, one
liotn the Held and stuff and one from
the non-commlssloneil slalT.
The ptesident of the asoclatlon Is
to appoint at the meeting to be held to
night, (oimnltlucs on schedules, handi
caps, etc., and also a committee to
make atrangemenls for the Held day
which It Is proposed to conduct dur
ing the coming winter. It is proposed
lo make this affair one of the best ath
letic contests ever seen In this part of
the state and It Is believed that amat
eur athletes outside of the regiment
will be allowed to compote as they are
in the big athletic games conducted
under the auspices of military organi
zations lu other cities. There will be
running events of all kinds, polo vault-
lug, broad and high jumping and it Is
unite possible that bicycle races will
also be conducted, A nine lap track can
be easily constructed in Hie armory

that a nine lap track Is by no means
Imptaetlcuble for racing purposes.

tied for the honor, but they haven't

There Is no question but that tho
Northeastern league will be continued
after the present series of games have
been lolled, The schedule committee
will meet shortly to arrange for a new
schedule for u second season, to begin
Immediately after the present expires.
Several of tho teams will be reorgan
ized, but the personnel of the league
will remain practically the same.
It Is questionable whether the Hi
cycle Clubs' league will continue in ex
istence after their season explris. The
nuiubeiship now consists of two teams
fiom the West L'ml Wheelmen and two
from the Gieen HIdge Wheelmen, tho
Hii'.vclu club team having diopped out
for lack uf Interest. This and the
fill titer fact that the schedule of this
league provides for games till the end
of January, makes tho likelihood of a
couUiiUiiiice utter that date very slight.
The games scheduled tor tnuiglit tiro
as follows: West Kud vs. Hlks, on the
former's alleys: Mack Diamonds s,
Hurkus, on tho former's alleys; Green
HIdge Wheelmen s. Scranion Hlcyclo
