Jack Clark, the Australian sprinter, who, after his recent riding in America, is considered a worthy successor to Frank Kramer, made his Parisian debut one fjinday in January last at the Velodrome d'Hiver. Like hie friend and mentor, MacFarland, however, he suffered defeat, although under the circumstances he made a very creditable display, seeing that the racing conditions in Paris are very different to those in Australia and America. Tis first appearance was against Dupre in a match race, the French giant beating him twice in succession. In the first match, Clark allowed Dupre to cut out the pace, relying on his finishing sprint, but he lost by a wheel. In the second match the Australian took a turn at pacing, and was the first to sprint in the last lap; but Duple overhauled him in the straight, and won by a quarter of a wheel. When thoroughly acclimatised. Clark will want a lot of beating, and his 'rieiids predict for him the highest honours in the profession.
