Yesterday afternoon the regular Fall handicap Athletic Meeting was held on Holmes Field. The weather was favorable and the track was in good condition, yet no records were broken. The 100 yards dash was the first event. The first trial heat was won by S. Saltonstall in 10 3-4 seconds, Cook '92 second. Saltonstall had a handicap of four yards while Cook had two yards. O. K. Hawes, '92. won the second heat in 10 3-4 seconds with a handicap of two yards, H. T. Holliis '92 being second with seven yards handicap. In the third heat only one man entered. The final heat which was run later was won by Saltonstall in 10 1-2 seconds, Hawes coming in second. The next event was the two mile bicycle race.

Tweedy '93, who had a start of 150 yards. His time was 6 minutes, 4 1-5 seconds. P. W. Davis, '93, with 150 yards handicap was sec. The mile walk came next, with Ware '93 having 50 seconds start, C. R. Bardeen '93, thirty seconds and C. T. R. Bates '92 at the scratch. Ware was passed by Bardeen in the second lap and slowly lost ground from that on. The race between Bates and Bardeen then became very close and it was not until within 100 yards of the finish that Bates passed his opponent. His time was 7 minutes, 7 2-5 seconds, Bardeen being about thirty seconds later. Only two contestants appeared to put the shot, W. H. Shea '92, who was scratch and R. W. Wood '91, with a handicap of five feet. Shea won with a distance of 4 feet 6 1-2 inches. Wood's best distance was 34 feet 2 inches with the handicap.

The race was exceedingly close and was won by T. J. Stead, '91, who had five yards handicap. His time was 53 2-5 seconds. J. C. Hubbard, '92, with twenty-five yards came next. The mile run was the next event, W. C. Downs, '90, and G. Collamore, '93, being the only contestants. The former was scratch and the latter given seventy five yards.

In the two mile safety bicycle race there were only three entries, E. A. Bailey, '91, and R. H. Davis, '91, being at the scratch, while P. W. Davis, '93, was given 300 yards.
