The H. A. A. held its annual spring meeting on Holmes Field last Saturday. The track was in excellent condition, but a strong wind blowing down the track, while it helped the sprinting, made very quick time in most of the other events impossible. The number of entries was very large, and the promptness with which the events were run off was praiseworthy. Only one Harvard record was broken; in the 120 yds. hurdle race, G. R. Fearing, '93, the only contestant, covering the distance in 17 2-5 seconds, 1-5 of a second better than the Harvard record. In the mile run G. Lowell, '92, tied the Harvard record of 4m., 38 3 5 sec. R. H. Davis, '91, tried to break the 2 mile bicycle record, but did not succeed, owing to the wind and to poor pacing; his time was 6.04 1-5, five seconds slower than the Harvard record.
The winners were as follows: 120 yds hurdle race, G. R. Fearing, '93, first; time 17 2-5 sec. (Best previous Harvard record was 17 3-5 sec.)
