New York, Jan, If. It has long been
a popular belief that athletes are not
long-lived; that the violent exerolse thsy
take brings about heart disease and other
ills- which out them off in ths flower of
their youth, so to speak.
Doubtless Intemperance In .athletes
will be attended by evil results just as
Intemperance in anything else will be,
but that ths athlete who takes cars of
himself ts more subject to disease than
others always haa struck me as oontrary
to reason. - It is gratifying, therefore, to
note ths result of ths statistics gathered
by. Director Audum of ths Tale gym
nasium. He decided soms tlms sgo to
investigate ths subject statistically. Hs
has recently published ths results of
this Inquiry. They are. In brief, ss fol
lows: Of 10,111 students attending Tale
during a period of years, 1,401 ars now
dead that Is, 11.1 per oent Bight
hundred and ssven bf ths above total
"mads"- a team or crew, and of these J
are now dead 7.1 per cent
In other words, ths peroentage of ath
letes who have died Is only a little over
half that of the non-athletes who have
joined ths great majority.
While this may be dus In part to the
fact .that the ..successful, team or crew
man must have an exceptionally sound
body and clear head, and would thus be
expected to live longer , then othsr students,-whether
hs went in for athletics
or not, it may be Justly claimed that
the added longevity la dus also to the
training and work oa ths sthletlo field.
In any event it sxplodes ths idea that
athletics ars physically harmful. .

It is expected that it will be ready for

entirely completed, embody university
football, baseball and track fields, to
