Yesterday afternoon the H. A. A. held its sixth and last hare and hounds run of the season. This fact, together with the excellent weather, called out a large number of enthusiastic runners, among whom were 'varsity crew, foot ball and base ball players.
A pack of about 40 hounds headed by A. Blake '93 as master, started out seven minutes after the hares, J. O. Nichols, L. S., and F. C. Chamberlin, L. S., a very good trail was laid and it was easily followed. It led across Brattle Square, through the Appian Way, down Mt. Auburn St., across Western Street bridge, through Beacon Park, down Mill-road to Beacon St., across Harvard Bridge to Central Square. Here the men lined up across the Square and galloped back to the Gymnasium. The first hound in was D. W. Fenton '95 who finished 5 1-2 minutes after the hares. The next eight men finished in the following order: Endicott '94, Blake '93, Osborn '93, Whittier '94. Burlingham L. S., Fearing '93, Dodge '95.
Owing to the fast pace set by two crew men, the distance of nine miles was covered by the hounds in 1 hour and 2 minutes, while it took the hares one and a half minutes longer. The hounds made up 8 1-2 minutes of the time allowance, thus catching the hares, whose cups go to the first three hounds. This was by far the most successful and enjoyable run of the season.
Several men have entered for the cross-country run Monday and it will be a close content. The courses subject to change, has been posted it the Gymnasium.
