"How do you like it, Martin?" the tall, black-haired Frenchman was asked as he stopped for a breather. "Tres bien," he said, grinning, "fast, very fast."

Among watchers on the roof of the Wanamakcr garage as Martin and Keller worked off their sea legs was Mike Devaney, famous half miler of a few years back. "That boy Martin will do," Devancy said as the beautifully proportioned Frenchman came tearing around the turn. "He's got a beautiful stride for the boards and looks like a fine runner. I can't say so much for Keller." Martin will make hia American debut Saturday night in the Mlllrose A. A, games while Keller will run Monday in the Seton hall games at Newark, N. J.
