Practical Track and Field Athletics

Excerpt from Practical Track and Field Athletics The high place which athletic sports and exercises occupy in our national life is a fact not open to argument. While we very properly encourage all branches of athletics and follow with interest the careers and records of those who excel in each particular branch, it is peculiarly in keeping with what the founders of our constitution were wont to term "the genius of our institutions" that we should bend our best energies towards encouraging sports which are not restricted to a favored few, but are open to the people as a whole. Thus it is fitting that track and field sports should occupy an important position in the domain of athletic exercises. Football is confined largely to the Universities and Colleges; baseball consumes a great deal of time, tennis and golf take time and money as well; but track and field athletics, to borrow an expression used by ex-President Cleveland in speaking of the ideal democracy, seem particularly designed to "give the rank and file a chance."
