Showing unexpected speed, the Crimson cindermen, led by Captain Mark Tuttle, came in third in the Greater Boston Intercollegiate Track Meet held at Harvard Stadium Saturday afternoon. Brown won the meet and Tufts was second.
Tuttle, whose victory in the mile was the highlight of the meet, chalked up the only Harvard first in 13 events. However, the Crimson squad took two seconds, a third and a fourth to bring their total points to 28 1-10th. Brown was far in the lead with 75 1-10th points and Tufts scored 39 1-10 points to take second.
B.C.'s McKinley Takes Honors
Following the three leaders were: Exeter with 21 3-5ths, Boston College with 21 1/2, Holy Cross with 17, and Northeastern with 7 3-5ths points. Individual honors went to B. C.'s Herb McKinley, who triumphed in the 440 with a time of 50.3 seconds, a full second ahead of his nearest rival. Ralph King of B. C. was the only double winner, capturing top honors in the 100 yard and 220 yard dashes.
Harvard tracksters made the best showing in the mile. Tuttle, with a final burst of speed, led the way in 4:41 and Robert Meckley placed third in this event. In the two mile run Edward Swett was second. John Kent took second in the 880.
Other Mikkolamen to finish in the running were: Walston Chubb, third in the 440, Glenn Schultz, fourth in the 220, and Cliff Wharton, fourth in the high jump.
In winning the meet, Brown's powerful team scored in every event except the 440. The Bruin athletes showed marked superiority and were never in danger of losing the lead.
Harvard's chances of placing higher were hindered by the lack of hurdlers, pole vaulters, discus throwers, and shot putters.
