They have since estab- lished what has become known as the "Field Sports Association." This body devotes its energies entirely to the promotion and cultivation of field sports, such as hurctles, pole jumping, weight putting, hammer, and discus throwing, hop-step-and-jump, and so forth, and it is in these events that Great Britain means to compete particularly with the United States next year in the Swedish capital. Al- ready there are about a dozen field clubs operating throughout the coun- try, with a membership of some 600 active athletes, many of whom hope to bring trophies home from Stock- holm.
