HO FOR PLUNGE
IN WATERS OF
Olympians Will Carry Out
Time Honored Custom on
Definite plans were announced this
morning for the annual Olympic club
run to the beach. It has been cus
tomary for the big club to have its
members get together on January 1
for a jollification and hike in the
open air, and the day is also made the
occasion of the annual midwinter
swim In the ocean. This custom has
prevailed for many years and the
coming new year will see the mem
bers on the job as usual.
Last year the club members held
their annual hike and jollification at
Harbor View, but the location waa
found not to be to the liking of the
swimming element of the club. The
beach below the Cliff house gives the
members plenty of opportunity to dis
play their swimming ability, and it is
expected that some 500 Olympians
will take the annual dip a week from
The blank for signatures of the
members desiring to take part in the
run was posted in the clubhouse this
morning. After the dip luncheon will
be served and a jolly up held, at
which the leading vocalists and
musicians of the club will participate.
This feature is usually In the hands
of Tiv Kreling and Willie Nelson.
Special cars will leave the Olympic
club at 10 o'clock on the morning of
January 1, and will take the members
as far as the Baker street entrance
of the panhandle. Here President
William Humphrey and his directors
will line the big herd of Olympians
up and the start for the beach will be
made at 10:10.
