Hart Wins Race On Balloon Tires
Iced lemonade but no Wellesley kisses greeted John H. Hart '52 yesterday morning when he won the Outing Club's annual bike race in balloon tires and 48 minutes.
Hart broke a chain in Wellesley Hills and got lost near the finish line, but still managed to arrive before the official timers--who drove cars. He ended the 14-mile route almost three minutes before the next Harvard-to-Wellesley racer.
Forty-two students entered. Winners in other handicap classes were Vaclav E. Benes '50, George E. Salser '52, and Jack Brode '52. Hart won a Dawes racing bike for his workout, given free by the Bicycle Exchange along with runner-up prizes.
