The Open Meeting.

Harvard Men Capture a Majority of the Prizes.

The first handicap meeting of the Harvard Athletic Association, held on Holmes Field, Saturday afternoon was in all ways a decided success.

Owing chiefly to the strong wind blowing across the track no new records were made although the time in several of the events was very good.

In almost every event the scratch men were too heavily handicapped, and were unable to get even a place.

The CRIMSON bulletin board, upon which was posted the score by innings of the Harvard-Princeton ball game, attracted almost as much attention and interest as did the games and great enthusiasm was shown by every one when it was seen that Harvard was winning the game.

The principal officials were: Referee, George B. Morrison, B. A. A.; clerk of course, H. G. Otis, B. A. A.; judge of walking, Eugene Merrill; marshal, A. D. Peck, Jr., B. A. A.; and they with the other minor officials deserve great credit for the smooth way in which everything passed off, there being none of those unpleasant waits which generally characterize athletic sports.

The 120 yard hurdle was the first event and the finish in the final heat between Shead and Lyman was very close, the former winning by about a foot only.

In the 100 yards dash the next event, by far the best running was done by Brown of Harvard, Allen of Yale, and Hall of Dartmouth. They finished in the order named, Brown's time being 9 4-5 sec.

In the final heat of the one mile bicycle race, Harvard men finished in one, two. three order. McDuffee of the Press Cycle Club had to give too large a handicap and was unable to do anything in the race.

Eleven men started in the mile walk, Endicott of Harvard, having the lowest handicap. He walked a good race easily overtaking and passing the other men but unfortunately was ruled off just as he had passed the last man and was practically sure of first prize.

The 880 yards was run in one heat and as there were so many men in the race it was almost impossible for the low limit men to get through the field.

In the 220 low hurdles Harvard got first and second. Fearing won his trial heat from Finneran and Crane but he was unable to catch Guerni in the finals and had to be contented with second place.

The quarter mile was run in one heat and brought out a large number of fast men. As usual men with large handicaps winning the three prizes. Harvard got all three places.

In the two mile bicycle race Elliot of J. E. Good the winner is also a N. Y. A. C. man.

Fenton '95 won the mile run without much trouble with Collamore '93 second. In this race also the field was too large for best running by low limit men.

In the field events Harvard was very successful.

Evins won the shot with a put of 40 ft. 4 in. In the hammer he made the best throw made but was beaten by his heavy handicap.
