“The American Olympic team,”
lie says, “consisted of a large num
ber of officials and a few athletes.
The officials took up most of tho
available room on the boat; and the
athletes, who didn’t count for very
much, were crowded in the corners.”
There is an opinion going the
rounds at present that the reason
the American runners did not fare
so well in the games is that they
weTe fed too well. This, however,
is a mistaken idea, Blankenburg
says. “The American athletes were
given a menu with five articles on
it,” he states. “These articles con
sisted only of the coarsest of food.
'Die officials, however, had a menu
with one hundred articles from
which to make their choice and
never failed to make tho most of
“The captain’s formal dinner,
held every Friday evening, was at
tended by the athletes in full sweat
uniforms. The Long Island duck,
served on these state occasions, was

ing it.”
1 he prevalent idea that all the
Hollanders wear wooden shoes is
ilso a mistaken one, according to

The Dutch go in for music more

Swimming is their national sport;
they are also fond of gymnastics.
