  Track and Field (Charles Scribner's
Sons. New York. price $2.o0). by T. E.
Jones.
  The book is designed as a manual for
  the use of high school teachers who are
called upon to coach students in track
and field events and also for young
athletes themselves, who wish to follow
the best methods and technic used by
champion performers.
  A chapter is "devoted to each of the
following: fundamentals, the sprints,
*the quarter-mile, the half-mile, relay
racing, one-mile run, two-mile run,
eross-country running, walking, steeple-
chasing, the hurdle race, the running
high jump, the standing broad jump,
the running broad jump, the pole-vault,
the shot-put, discus-throw, the javelin-
throw, the hammer-,throw, and notes on
preparation for a track meet.
  In simple, straightforward English
the author describes each of the above
events, gives a list of champion per-
formers or world's records, physical
equipment necessary, technic, and train-
ing schedules. The profuse use of illus-
trations, both photographs and -draw-
ings, should make it especially valuable
to teacher and performer, both amateur
and professional.
