Spectators of Saturday's contest were treated to a surprise. Expecting little, they saw a consistently excellent meet, in addition to the establishing of a new two mile record. It speaks well for the athletes returning to college from war service that with so little training they should approach so near the records.

Cornell deserves our heartiest congratulations. Dresser's run together with the other four first places she won, made her distinctly worthy of the cup.

But that Cornell has won the cup nine times within fourteen years is no argument that this cup winning habit cannot be broken. Within a like period, the University took first honors eleven seasons. However such a boast is no excuse for present shortcomings. The information is given with the expectation that Harvard will lay plans for next year's meet.
