FOUR TIED IN LOW HURDLES
Conclusion of Track and Field Competitions This Afternoon at 4.
The first half of the track and field event competitions held in the Baseball Cage on Soldiers Field yesterday afternoon was closely contested. The final of the 30-yard low hurdles was declared a dead heat, as the four contestants were so closely grouped that it was impossible to select a winner. Before this, three trial heats and another for second men had been necessary to select the four men for the final.
J. P. Long '11 won the 30-yard high hurdle race from scratch by a slight margin over J. K. Lewis '11. H. L. Goddard '10 secured the first place in the shot-put from scratch, and L. C. Torrey '12 won the pole-vault.
