Carnival on the Boards


The bright and colorful panoply of the indoor track season sparkles in this picture of Madison square Garden, its banked balcoines full of enthusiasts and the infield populated with athletes in their many-hued uniforms and the penguinlike officials in the cold grandeur of black and white.
