Two informal track meets will be held on Soldiers Field this afternoon at 2.30 o'clock. The University track team will meet an aggregation from B. A. A. while the yearlings will oppose M. I. T. 1923, University events will be as follows: 40-yard dash, 45-yard high hurdles, 300-yard dash, 600-yard dash, 1000-yard run, one-mile run, two-mile run, shot-put, high-jump, pole-vault. The 1923 meet will consist of the same events with the exception of the two-mile run, the pole-vault, and the shot put. In the short time in which there has been to practice, Technology has been unable to develop enough pole-vaulters and shot-putters.
C. S. Evans Unc. is one of the most promising of the University sprinters and should give a good account of himself in today's event. E. O. Gourdin '21 and R. Chute '22 are also very fast short distance men, and are both entered in the 40 and 300-yard dashes.
R. W. Harwood '20 is the best of the Crimson pole vaulters, but he will be hard put today to overcome both Dunkin and Wright of the B. A. A. C. G. Krogness '21, will be the University's chief performer in the hurdles and high jump. Capt. D. F. O'Connell '21 is the mainstay of the long distance men and should give a hard race to the B. A. A. entrants.
W. Moore '18, Caldwell and Halpin are three of the most formidable B. A. A. runners. Halpin is entered in the 300-yard dash and Moore is to run in that event and the 40-yard dash, while Caldwell will race the 600-yard distance.
The times at which the various events will take place are as follows:
40-yard dash--Trials, 2.30; finals, 2.40.
45-yard hurdles--Trials, 2.45; finals, 2.50.
