When it was announced that the University relay team would run against Cornell and not Yale in the indoor meet tonight, there was a great deal of speculation as to the reasons for this step. Some said that Harvard and the Boston Athletic Association conspired to defeat Yale by insisting on a short run, but that they were foiled by Yale's withdrawing from the meet. Others volunteered the extraordinary opinion that Harvard foresaw defeat, and decided to cancel the race. Of course these rumors were all wrong. Yale had prepared a relay team for a two-mile run, while the Harvard team was trained for less than half that distance. The officials of the meet then announced that to save time they would have a short race, each man to run 390 yards. This was not the Yale distance and the team was withdrawn. Cornell had a 390-yard team, one of the best in the country, and entered the meet on Yale's retirement.
