Developing Lethbridge Sprinting Talent An interesting talk on how to get oneielf Into good condition and how to prepare for the 100 (print, given by Physical Director Thompson at the Y.M.C.A. gymnasium Tlmrs- day night, when a number of the track and field enthusiasts met for their Initial turn-out Tho physical director went on to say that good physical condition is something -every pereon, whether an athlete or not, should seek By physical condition it meant the building up of a state of bodily strength In which every organ Is healthy and subject to the contiol nnd direction of the mind and will. Advice was given In diet, sleep, bathing, etc., and a Jew simple calistheiiio exorcises waa demonstrated, the peiformance of which would greatly Improve the physical condition. He also men- tioned that it required a peculiar combination of strength; agility and nervous energy to make one a successful'.sprinter. In learn- ing to run ono acquires the faculty of thinking quickly and handling himself easily.

MoBlyea, Dunfworth and Campbell will bo pleased to meet any interested in this line of sport. Physical Director Thompson is working assiduously to pro- mote the various branches of Y.M.C.A.'. athletic '.work that have been neglected here. May success attend Jiis- efforts.
