Britieh Think Committee
Erred in De.?iding to Hold
Antwerp Classic This Year
In the alver.ee of a d-jfinito statement
from the Br.itish Oiympic Council on
tha subject of preparation for the O ym
pic games at Antwerp this y.?ar. ::n Eng
li h writer hi3 ebtained the opinions of
three dist.net personalities on athletics
generaliy nnd the O'ympio g-tmes in par
t cular. Those three are Lieutenant
Coionel Arno'd N. S, J-.ckjon, an Eng
ii h ofli ? r and well-known athlete; S r
geant Linton Hewitt, a so dier, who
prior to the war had done much for
a h etics in Australia and Charles B.
Co hran, the English promoter, who
conducted Ihe Joo Bsckett-Georgea Car?
pentier bout last rnonth.
All three believe. he sa. s, that the
international O'ympic committee made a
gritt mistake in d.-ciding to ho'.d gimes
this yoar, and th it it will be impo:sib!e
to reorganize the sport in suffi.-ient
mc.sure to enable Great Britain to bs
ad quately represented at Antwerp. In
ordar to save the Bri'i-h prestige from
njury is sustained at Stockhoim it
will be nocess3ry to spare no effort in
securing the best possible team and
m-ke a united attempt to improve the
Br'tish athletic standing.
Wi h this object in view he writes:
"All three agree that up to now the
attempts at organizing O'.ympic teams
? a ai ur? and that to get
the b?st of our goods on show at Ant?
werp next year we must strike out on
fresh iin ?s. A'so there is a g?ner il
idaa that instead of leaving the organ?
izing ?;d3, and especially tho financial
end of it, in the handt of a scrateh
collect'on, we should call in the best
