BOSTON COLLEGE GAMES.

Good Showing in the Open Events.- Unsatisfactory Team Races.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The second annual games of the Boston College athletic association were held last evening in Mechanics Hali. The H. A. A. entries scored in all but one of the open events, having a total of five firsts, three seconds and two thirds.

The interest of the meeting was centred in the two team races, one between the Harvard and Yale Freshmen, the other between Harvard and U. of P.

In the first race, M. L. Bernstein started for the Harvard Freshmen and gained about four yards on Dudley of Yale. P. L. Fish increased the lead to fifteen ya. ds but fell on the last turn and was passed by Richardson, who gained a lead which the succeding Harvard men were unable to overcome.

D. Grant M. S., and Wilson, U. of P., were the first runners in the 'varsity race. Though Wilson led for the first five laps, Grant succeeded in finishing seven yards ahead. Mechling, however, soon overtook Alexander '99, and from this time on U. of P. increased their lead.

The Harvard team was made up of new men, excepting Grant, as it was thought better to save the older half milers for later in the season, and to give the newer men the experience of racing.

The Harvard men made a good showing in the dashes. C. D. Daly 1901 won the 40 yards novice in a very close race. N. R. Willard 1900 won the 40 yards handicap from the 9 ft. mark in 4 3-5s.; G. J. Holliday 1 L. was third. The invitation 40 yards dash was one of the closest races of the meet. All six men were within two yards of each other at the finish. Finally the race was given to W. J. Holland of Boston College. The time was 4 3-5s. which equals the world's record. L. W. Redpath '98, who easily won his heat in the same time was tied for second place with J. S. Quinn of Boston College. The latter won the toss and receive second prize.

John Bray of Williams, established a new record in the 1000 yards covering the distance in 2 minutes and 23 seconds.

S. F. Rockwell 1900, led in the one mile handicap until within 30 yards of the finish where he was passed by two men. O. W. Richardson '99, ran a good race but was too heavily handicapped to get a place.

C. D. Daly 1901, in addition to winning the 40 yards novice, won first place in the 45 yards low hurdles from the 6 foot mark. His time was the fastest which was made in any of the heats.

Both first and second place in the running high jump were won by Harvard men. S. G. Ellis 1901, was first with an actual jump of 5 feet 11 inches. C. M. Rotch 1901, was second. His actual jump was 5 feet 10 inches.

W. G. Morse '99 cleared the bar at 5 ft. 10 3-8 in., but failed to clear 6 ft. 2 3-4 in.

E. B. Neilson M. S. with a handicap of 28 yards easily won the 880 yards run in 2m. 7 4-5s.

In the 440 yards run H. B. Hewitt '99, with 25 yards handicap, won second place. The time was 54 2-5s.

William J. Holland of the Boston College won the special 440 yards run in the fast time of 53 4-5s.

The shot put was the only event in which the Harvard men did not get a place.
