TO STAGE TRIANGULAR MEET IN MECHANICS HALL FEB. 28

RELAY MEN ATALBANY

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

At a meeting held yesterday afternoon at the H.A.A., F. W. Moore '93, Romeyn Berry, and H. G. Pender '00, Graduate Treasurers of the Athletic Associations at the University, Cornell, and Dartmouth respectively, decided favorably upon the proposition of holding a triangular indoor meet between the track teams of the universities. It was agreed that the meet should be held in Boston at Mechanics Building and February 28 was set for the date. Details of arrangements were gone over at some length, and it was decided that the number of entries in the 300 and 600-yard runs should be limited because of the close competition expected in those events and the triangular character of the contest.

It was also the concensus of opinion that the two-mile event could well be eliminated, from the program because of the small size of the track. The suggestion was made that the Freshman relay teams of the colleges should stage a three-cornered relay race in addition to the other events of the evening.

To add to the interest of the schedule it is planned to put on several other events. It is possible that the stellar relay aggregation of the B. A. A. will meet the relay team from the New York A. C. This feature, if included on the card, would be one of the fastest events ever staged in Boston.

The last triangular meet in Boston in which the University was represented took place in 1917. At this time the contestants were Pennsylvania, Dartmouth, and the University. This year Cornell has been substituted in place of Penn.

Relay Men Leave for Albany.

The Crimson relay team leaves this morning for Albany, where the men will vie with the Cornell team in a medley relay at the invitation meet held in the local Armory under the auspices of the State Board of Education. The University quartet is B. Wharton '22, W. H. Goodwin '20, J. A. McCarthy '22, and D. F. O'Connell '21, who will cover respectively two, four, six, and eight laps of 176 yards each.

Little can be foretold as to the collective ability of the new Crimson four. The men have shown great individual speed and head-work, however, and are expected to put up a stiff fight to the finish with the Ithacans. The latter, under the tutelage of Coach "Jack" Moakley, have been undergoing a stiff course of preparations for the visitors from Cambridge, and, judging from the results shown in the last fortnight, will prove sturdy antagonists. The Ithacans made an unusually good showing at the Syracuse meet last fall and are eager to continue their success.
