for Old Prnb says that we are to have
no less than nine snows during th-'

elusion i,s the thunder we had in Feb
ruary. For every "season of thundoi '

May. Single claps do not count; it

Huggiero Leoncnvalla, the fanioin
coniMisi;r, was born in Naples, Marcii
'!, ISaS. As a youth be dreamed ot a
military career, but abandoned bis
plans in this direction to take up the
study of music. He went to Fiance,
where his lack of funds caused him
many hardships. In the midst of his
struggle to make a living by doing
odd musical jobs as he could find le'
wrote a imkmu called "Medici." He de
cided not to wait for the production
of "Medici" but to write something
that would be produced at once. Th.V
was how he came to produce "I Pan

Making! of
Athlete
By MICHAEL C MURPHY,
Coveh t aivrrfilty o( Fraacylvanla Track In
sstseax iiiip'isarws
VjmiyL In ".V wn 'J10 1 rr''t ,m""e pleasure from instilling
WM YiWVjim sonw of these iiunlities into the boys who train under
which you thow the most natural aptitude. Then stick to it. A large per
centage of the faihms in athletics are traced, to discouragement in the
first two weeks. Kveii the best of men have to pass through the period of
discouragements. Not many years ugo 1 had a man training for a mile
run. For several weeks he seemed tj make no progress and was getting
discouraged, (hie night he was ready to quit, but the next day lie began
to. improve, and later became nn intercollegiate champion. He owed his
stiutss to his determination pot to g've up.
I hae experimented with n variety of athletic diets for a period
of more than '.'0 years. 1 believe that the diet on which I lived as fl
professional sprinter years ago was belter than the expensive ones now
prepared for college training tables. A diet should have but two objects.
These should be to give strength and to keep the stomach in good order.
The trouble with most athletes Ls that they eat tm much and too
fast. This invariably upsets the sti iniich nnd they wonder what is the
matter. A bad stomach is the first sign of stiileness, nnd when a man
gets in this condition he should change his d;'t and ret a few days. Main
a good football man is ruined by failure to do this. Too many coaches
do not realize that the more thev won'i a m.iti i.i this condition the wo Me
he gets. When a man is physically and uientitiiy tired you can do nothing
with him. He is not in condivion to learn anything.
In the following table 1 have given what 1 consider an ideal diet for
an athlete in training. If this is adhered to, eaten .-.lowly and cigarette
and other such evils refrained from, there will be no excuse for an ath
lete not getting in lirst-chiss condition.
Breakfast One chop (sometime-, two) or eight myites of beef. Twt
soft boiled eggs; one baked potato; o;i-d and bread; milk or mild tea.
prunes or apple sauce (no cream or sugar adih'd).
Dinner Light soup; roast Urf. lamb, mutton or fowl; boiled ot
mashed potatoes; vegetables and fruit in .-etison; boiled rice and mill
or corn meal mush; a light pudding; milk or tea; toast and bread.
Supper Cold meat (roa-t heel', lamb, mutton or fowl) or one small
steak; one potato; toast of fresh grh.un hi cad; prunes, apple sauce or
baked apple; milk und mild tea.

able to run a little faster, jump a little further, piny
