H. "Whitman, the director of the T'mnasiura for the Young Men's Christian m Atlanta, has been conspicuous in the movement, and has had many expressions from the different asso- tiations around in this and other states about, it. Tbe plan is to have delegates from the 'eiding southern col leges and athletic clubs n Atlanta or some other central point ;r to organize the league, so that it 3m VL 3 action early in the spring.

Jameson Is no exception to the rule, being lull six feet in height and weighing 1GO pounds. Ho was a resident of Coviugton, Ky., several years, and it was there he received the greater part of Lis physical education and development in the gynasmms of that city. Hisrccordin Kentucky is with best athletes of thcstato. Hehaslately had a course of instruction at the Lake Geneva ALLEST JAMISON. training school where he was among the best all-around men. Jamesou is planning great things for the Augusta boys next Reason in baseball, tennis, running, jumping and other sports. He says before the aeason is over, Augusta is goine to have several athletes covered from head to heel with medals. That's right! The University Boys. 'Rah, 'rah, The familiar shout comes from tho 'varsity boys over at Athens, and oven thus early in the year brings with it tho significant warn- ing: "Keep your eyes on ub." Never was there such a revival in the world of spores as now prevails on the cam- pus of the old University of Georgia, and even the faculty has awakened to the realization at last that all "work and no play makes Jack a darned __ Dr. Harry C. White, together with sev- eral other members of the faculty, as well as borne of the students went to work early in the term to put the college gymnasium in a better way. The result is a general shaking up of the athletic interests at the college. Mr. Dudley Youngblood, president of the Athletic Association, is now in Atlanta looking after the interests of the association in regard to the securing of a fund to better equip its gymnasium. Ho talks most interestingly about the situation of affairs over there. He saya that there is a movement now astir to grade a large lield on the campus, covering many acres, and to erect a large grand stand by it for tbe of spectators that always witnesb the games of ball, tennis and other sports which tho boys play every afternoon after the drilling is ended. Dr. White has the matter in charge and says the work will all be completed before tbe spring season is well opened. The trustees of the university, recognizing the great advantages of this step, are heartily endorsing the great work which Dr. White has taken upon himself. There are many students at Athens who will lower the southern records this summer. All of the classes have organ- ized their teams of football, baseball, tennis, etc., and have already begun to play out of Bight, Among the all-around athletes in col- lege this year, none can down "Dud" Youngblood himself. His record at jumping, sparring, vaulting, etc., ia indeed a tough one to climb as his competitors put it. Mr. Youngblood is highly in favor of the movement for an inter-collegiate field day next Mav, and says the boys over at the univer- sity will'plant their colors'tnumphantly on the field whenever it is to take place. The Athens boys have always been the ter- ror of the Mercer and Oxford boys ever since the memorable conflicts at Union Point, but it is reported that these two colleges have taken on more muscle since then, and could make it warm for any team now in baseball or any other game. Savannati's No Slouch. Some of tne best athletes in Georgia are in Savannah. Aud here it is that the recent impetus to sports is perhaps most marked in this state. The Young Men's Christian Association of Savannah has se- r s'.

O. Carmichael, formerly of Atlanta, as physical director, and under his excel lent guidance is fairly booming. Savannah's young men are all given to ath- letics and that city has furnished to Vale auc Harvard and the University at Athens more "record men" than any other city perhaps in the south. Among these is one whose repu- tation is known in the north and south alike. It is Mr. W. W. Gordon. Billie Gordon was tho champion short-dis- tance runner of the State university last year with a record 10 2-5. He also has a record at Yale that has given him prominence there having been second to the winners of 100-yard dashes in many contests, and winning the quarter dash in fifty-five seconds. At the State university last year Mr. Gor don won as many medals and prizes at neu day as he could carry from the track, and to him is due the praise of having greatly low ered the university's record in many sports. Billie is also great on the jump and Huron race, having borne away prizes at the umver aity and at Yale in such contests. PAEK RACK TEACK. An effort is now being made by the athletu club of the Savannah Young Men Christian Association to secure the us of the famous Vernon park race track, which can and will doubtless be done, and then Mr Carmichael will take the boys out Jo their training to enter the Brunswick contest The club will also have tennis court, and a diamond laid off in the park.
