Manager Struck by Hammer

According to a report issued from the Stillman Infirmary last night, the condition of S. E. Gleason '27, an assistant track manager who was badly slashed about the face on Monday by a thrown hammer, was much improved. No bones were broken, and the damage appears to have been confined to severe abrasions and confusions about the face.

Gleason was injured on Monday while standing near the hammer throwers pit. A hammer hurtled somewhat askew from the hands of a University weight man, and the whirling wire connecting the handle and hammer struck him on the side of the face, making a cut several inches in length.
