THE sixth Annual Field Meeting of the I. C. A. A., came off on Saturday last at Mott Haven in the presence of a large number of spectators, many of them ladies.

The 100-yards run was the first event on the programme, and was won by E. J. Wendell, '82, Harvard. in 10 1/4 sec., J. F. Jenkins, '84, Columbia, being second. This was a great surprise to the Columbians, who had centred all their hopes on Jenkins for both the 100 yds. and the 220 yds. Soren, '83, Harvard, won the running high jump, with a record of 5 ft. 2 1/4 in., Sayre of Columbia taking second place. The mile-run fell to Cuyler of Yale in 4 min. 40 7/8 sec., Thorndike, '81, Harvard, running a plucky race for second place. The first half of the distance was covered by Thorndike in 2 min. 9 sec., but he could not hold the pace and tired on the last lap. Soren won the standing high jump with a record of 4 ft. 6 3/4 in., jumping 4 ft. 10 in afterward as an exhibition jump. The quarter-mile run was placed before the 220 yds. on the programme instead of after it, as last year, so that Wendell did not run, as Jenkins was comparatively fresh for the 220 yds., and he could not afford to lose a point for the cup to a Columbia man, as Columbia was pressing us pretty hard just then; the race was won by E. A. Ballard, '81, University of Penn., in 53 4-5 sec., C. G. Wilson, '83, Princeton, finishing second. The other entries had all withdrawn. Sayre of Columbia, '81, took the mile-walk, in 7 min. 36 1/8 sec., W. H. Herrick, '82, Harvard, taking second place. The hammer also fell to Columbia, J. H. Montgomery, '81, throwing it 76 ft. 9 1/2 in., Porter, also of Columbia, winning the second prize. Moore of Stevens, '81, won the shot with a put of 34 ft. 11 in. Kip, '83, Harvard, seemed out of form and did not do himself justice in either of these events. The half-mile run was won easily by J. T. Coolidge, '84, Harvard, in 2 min. 7 3/8 sec., H. H. Parker of Dartmouth, finishing about 5 yards in his rear. Ballard, '81, University of Penn., and Cuyler, '82, Yale, having withdrawn, Coolidge had an easy victory and ran the entire distance in beautiful form and well within himself. The 220-yards dash, final heat, brought out E. A. Ballard, '81, University of Penn., J. F. Jenkins, '81, Columbia, B. W. Mackintosh, '84, Lafayette, and E. J. Wendell, '82, Harvard. At the pistol shot Jenkins jumped away with the lead and held it round the curve until the home stretch where Wendell made his spurt and won by several yards, Jenkins falling from exhaustion at the end. Time 23 1-5 sec., which betters the American College record by nearly half a second. Jenkins won the running broad jump with a record of 20 ft. 9 1/4 in. The 2-mile bicycle race was won by C. A. Reed, '83, Columbia, in 6 min. 51 sec., S. Williston, '82, Harvard, taking second place. Williston was started 10 yds., behind the rest, the number of starters rendering it impossible for all to start in the same line; and, in addition, he was badly fouled at the start by the man who started the bicycle directly ahead of him getting his foot in front of Williston's wheel. The result was that he lost at least 25 yards, and the exertion necessary to catch the others at first was too great a strain for him to do himself justice at the finish. He rode a plucky race and deserves great credit. The tug-of-war was easily won by Princeton, whose team pulled in capital form. Their new patent belt also had much to do with their victory. F. W. Dalrymple, '83, Lehigh, won the pole vault with a jump of 8 ft. 9 in.; O. Harriman, '83, Princeton, taking second place. The Hurdle was won by R. T. Morrow, '81, Lehigh, in 18 1/8 sec., W. P. Trowbridge, S. S., Yale, second by 4 inches. Mitchell, Harvard, '83, was third in his trial heat. The games were on the whole highly successful, and Harvard may be congratulated on winning 5 first prizes, and 3 second; Columbia being second with 4 first prizes and 7 second; Lehigh third, with 2 first; Princeton fourth, with 1 first, and 2 second; Yale and University of Penn., tied for fifth place with 1 first and 1 second each; Stevens seventh with 1 first, and Dartmouth eighth with 1 second prize.
