The first heat of the mile novice had three starters. Fuller cut out the pace, bụt on the seventh lap he was passed by Metcalf, who looked over his shoulder to see where his opponent was. This act disqualified him, but he won the heat easily in 2:37 2-5. When the referee announced that Metcalf was disqualified the latter's friends set up a big howl. The decision was right, however.
The starters in the fourth heat were F. Fuller, 25 yards; P. Metcalf, 25 yards; E. W. Decker, 35 yards; E. S. Battles, 60 yards. In the second lap young Frank Fuller dashed into the fence just after turning the east curve and was completely knocked out. He was carried unconscious to his dressing-room, and many ladies who had witnessed the accident left their seats and went home. The race was won by Decker, with Battles second. Time, 10 2-5 seconds.
There are several tandem teams in the Olympic Club Wheelmen, prominent among whom were the Fuller brothers. Since Frank Fuller went East C. F. Lemon has taken the rear seat, and with George Fuller on front they make a speedy class A team.
Frank W. Fuller, one of the leading spin its in the Olympic Club Wheelmen, leaves to-day for the East. He expects to make an extended trip and while there will act as a delegate from the Northern California division to the National Assembly at Albany. He was appointed to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Walter B. Sheldon
Frank W. Fuller, the second of California's delegates to the National Assembly of Wheelmen, has returned from the East. He is outspoken in his opinion of the Eastern delegates, who pledged their support to the measures favored by this division and then cast their votes against them.
The committee consists of T. G. Spillane, J. H. Nash, Frank W. Fuller and W. C. Corbett, and the first move will be to schedule the proposed runs at least thirty days in advance, this keeping the members informed of desirable outing trips. Captain H. D. Hadenfeldt was re-elected Captain for the ensuing term, in accordance with the custom by which the road officers are chosen every six months. He will reappoint Lieutenants Spillane and Nash.
Frank W. Fuller, George H. Stratton and George Fuller of the Olympic Club Wheelmen have returned from a fortnights' camping trip to Mendocino county. They brought back many souvenirs of their trip and have stirring tales of adventure to relate.
President T. J. Winslow of the Imperial Cycling Club has not yet received any acceptance of his challenge, as published in The Cal last Sunday, to race the president of any other club in this City five miles on the road, President Charles Albert Adams of the Olympic Club Wheelmen preferred. Since Mr. Adams was forced to lower his colors to the superior pedaling proclivities of Frank Fuller a month or two ago, he has not done any active training, but would like to offer E. F. Russ or J. E. Wing as a substitute, if Mr. Winslow does not mind. If this is satisfactory, the match can undoubtedly be arranged for an early date. Otherwise President Wynne of the Californias will undoubtedly take on the doughty flier of the Imperials.
