TO THE EDITOR.
Sir,—lt is to be hoped that members of the Dunedin Cycling Club will vote against affiliating with the League of Wheelmen. The agitation to affiliate with them bas'been got up by a few racing men, who overlook the fact that they are in the minority. The League sanotion cash amateurism, or, in other words, professionalism, and thiß class predominates with them. As the Otago Cycling Club have joined the League there is no need for the Dunedin Cycling Club also doing so, as the racing men who wish to take cash for their winnings can join that club. L?t us then retain the Dunedin Cycling Club for amateurs only, and prevent the sport from coming down to the level of horse racing.—lam, etc., Sport. Dunedin, November 5.
