He went to Paris in 1900 to represent America at the Olympic games, and during that time he startled the . Frenchmen and won the applause of hundreds of college men by refusing to take part in those events which were held on Sunday. He refused to enter the shot put and the hammer throw contests, for which ho had trained for months, because these Contests were held on Sunday, which showed that he not only up held , his own personal convictions, but also the athletic idea of the Amer ican college men as a whole. After he was graduated, Doctor McCracken served . as general secretary of the Young Men's Christian Association of Columbia University, and six years ago went to Canto, China, where he represents the University of Pennsyl vania in medical work in that city In connection with the Canton Christian College.
