During the meeting, conversation touched upon the feelings invoked when it was apparent that they had secured the bronze; the attractiveness of the discipline of archery; and the Athletic Association Archery Team itself, with a convivial atmosphere prevailing throughout the meeting. Mr. Muto, who has had a busy daily schedule since the Olympics, discussed his eagerness that acquisition of the medal would encourage an increase in the popularity of archery.
