The relay races were the most interesting events of the fifth annual track carnival, which was held in Mechanics Hall, Boston, last evening. In the final race, the Boston Athletic Association defeated the University team, establishing a new record of 3 minutes, 8 1-5 seconds for the distance, 1560 yards. The former record of 3 minutes, 8 2-5 seconds was made by the Harvard team in 1906. The Freshmen defeated the Boston English High School, which team won from them at the South Boston Athletic Club's games on January 21. The Yale freshmen were obliged on account of sickness to cancel their race yesterday afternoon, so that the 1914 team ran instead of the second University team against the high school. The interclass race was won by the Sophomores.

R. C. Foster '11, as first man for the University team, finished a yard ahead of O'Hara of the B. A. A. S. C. Simons '11 started off at top speed, opening up five yards. Lee closed this up at the finish, so that H. W. Kelley '11 had only an advantage of two yards. At the end of the second lap Prout of the B. A. A. swung into the lead and finished his relay four yards ahead. E. K. Merrinew '10, as last man for the athletic association, ran a superb race, finishing in record time, 18 yards ahead of W. H. Fernald '12.

In the Freshman and English High School race K. Reynolds '14 and Meanix completed the first relay shoulder to shoulder. Howe led W. A. Barron '14 for the next three laps, and Ferguson held the advantage until the third lap of the third relay, when W. L. Allen, Jr., '14 passed him. With a start of five yards, F. J. O'Brien '14 had little trouble in gaining 20 more.

In the preliminary heats of the interclass race, 1913 defeated 1914 by one lap and 1911 won from 1912 by 50 yards. In the final heat the Sophomores took the lead at the start and gradually opened up ground, finishing 30 yards ahead of the Seniors.

In the other relay races, the Law School defeated Brookline Gymnasium Athletic Association by four yards and the Law School first year men finished 20 yards in front of the Medical School first year men. The Boston Athletic Association midgets won from the Brookline Gymnasium midgets in a close race.

J. A. MacLaughlin '11 won the fencing championship of the University. The wrestling championships were won by H. W. Bradley '12, W. D. Wile 2L., and R. M. Page 1L. No competition was held in the heavy-weight class.
