The Garden City Cyclers of San Jose went to the wall sometime ago in San Jose. They attempted too much in the construction of a wheel track, and insolvency swamped them. But the membership resolved upon reorganization, and a new club has just arisen out of the ashes of the old one, It is all due to the untiring efforts of such men as R. J. Butler, J. A. Desimone, and J. B. Lambkin. The name ef the new club is the Garden City Wheelmen, and the following are the officers:

President, J. B. Lambkin; Vice-President, Robert J. Butler; Recording Secretary, J. A. Desimone; Financial Secretary. H. L. Miller; Directors, George Osen, George Owen, Dr. F. Schumacher, Al. Hubbard, and Edgar Johnson. Committees: Recruiting - R. J. Butler and Tony Delmas. Club Rooms - R. J. Butler and Dr. Schumacher. A secret committee to pass upon applications for charter membership was also appointed.
