The bestowal of the prizes by tin* king, who placed laurel wreaths on the heads of the, victors and shook hands with all the winners took place in the stadium. The American team led the march of triumphant athletes who then arrayed before the king formed an assemblage of picked men and women of the world of sport such as was never seen in one body before.
