A letter was received from tho Canterbury Centre stating .that it was proposed to hold'the 50 miles New Zealand Amateur Road Cycling Championship over an out-and-back course, at Christchurch on 10th October. Tho i-ace would be both a championship and a handicap event.
On the motion of Mr. H. Austad it was decided to apply to the International Women's Sports' Federation for affiliation. A letter received from the federation stated that the New Zealand Council's application for recognition as a world's record of a performance of 11 l-ssec for 100 yards by Miss Elaine Murtyn could not bo granted, as the only records accepted for examination were those, communicated by an affiliated federation. It was pointed out that the record was held by a French runner—Mile. Radideau—with 11 l-ssec. It was decided at the 1920 congress to register only metric distances ant] weights.
