FIRST TIME TRIALS RUN

HARRIERS RACE AT SYRACUSE

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The cross-country men ran off the first time trials of the season yesterday afternoon over the Belmont course. Considering, the short time the men have been training, some very good times were registered. C. E. Dexter '22 led the field across the tape but H. M. Mahon '23 was nearly treading on his heels. The other three of the first five places were filled by C. E. Reycroft '21, Captain F. G. Bemis '22 and J. G. Winchester '23 respectively.

The Freshman harriers also ran over their course yesterday but no times were officially recorded. Much interest is being evinced in Frenchman interdormitory run to be held next Monday afternoon. The course will be laid out so as to start and finish on, or near, soldiers Field. A large pack is expected, and it is hoped this run may bring out some new material.

4-Mile Race at Syracuse

The raising of the curtain on the cross-country season will show six universities entered in the annual four-mile invitation race to be held over the Syracuse course this afternoon.

This will be the first opportunity of sizing up the University's opponents, and the strong field at Syracuse promises more than keen competition for the University hill and dalers. Columbia, Dartmouth, Yale, Cornell, Colgate and Syracuse will strive for the honors won last year by Princeton. The race will start in front of Syracuse University and will end in the Stadium, after the fashion of Olympic Marathons, just prior to the opening of the football game between the Orange and Pittsburg.

The course is considered an exceptionally good sporting run, starting up over a hill of considerable length, stretching practically all the way over clear fields through one of the most picturesque sections of Central New York.

Simmons of Syracuse Favorite

On account of the early date of the event, the number of entries is not so numerous as last year. Tom Keane, Syracuse coach, expects a victory for his team, which has two veterans who finished "one-two" in last year's intercollegiates and who represented the United States in the recent Olympic games, Captain John Simmons and L. G. Watson. Either of these men is picked to finish first, though such veterans as McDermott and Lentz of Cornell, and Higgins of Columbia will probably finish well up toward the head of the pack. The present condition and form of these runners indicates plenty of worry for the University harriers in the coming dual contests and the intercollegiate competition.
