Twenty nine competitors, a coach, trainer and two managers form the Yale-bound Varsity track encourage which will board a 9 o'clock train at South Station tomorrow morning. Starting at 2 o'clock, tomorrow's meet is the first postwar revival of Harvard-Yale indoor track competition.
Except for Dave Read number one broadjumper whose recent foot injury will keep him out of action for two months, the Crimson appears "fit and ready," according to head-coach Mikkola.
Strongest Bulldog opposition is expected to develop in the hurdles, pole-vault, mile and two mile, and dash. Although tomorrow's meet is the first large-scale test of the season for the Blue, some Elis, notably Cook and Finley in the hurdles, and Brown in the pole-vault, have been competing with good success in the various "name" carnivals this winter.
The Harvard entries:
Broad jump--H. Thayer, P. McCormick; 35-pound weight throw--J. Fisher, S. Felton, P. Zeigler; high-jump--P. Garland, J. Harrigan, O. McCormicle; pole-vault--P. Harwood, O. C. Torrey, W. Lawrence; 16-pound shot-put--P. Garland, W. Jackson, A. Wheeler; 60-yard high, and 65-yard low hurdles--W. Flint, P. McCormick, R. Stokes; 60-yard dash--H. Thayer, R. Toppan, R. A. Cameron; one-mile run--J. Cogan, F. Gurley, H. May; one-mile relay--D. Hamblett, C. Wharton, A. Ruby, J. G. Wheeler; two-mile run--H. Rosenfeld, T. Walnut, C. Worth; two-mile relay--J. Edelman, D. Groshong, F. B. Withington, F. Gurley.
Early-season Achilles' heel of the Varsity squad, the sprint department has been improved by coach Mikkola, who said yesterday that "at least one of our sprinters will score Saturday.
