A two-mile run has been added to the list of events for the fall open handicap track meet which will take place at Soldiers Field Thursday at 4 o'clock, it was learned yesterday from Field Event Coach Farrell. As now planned the meet will consist of the following events: 100-yard dash, 220-yard dash, 440-yard dash, 880-yard run, mile run, two-mile run, 120-yard high hurdles and 220-yard low hurdles. The field events will not take place until late in September after the close of the football and crew seasons.
The fall handicap meet is open to men in the college and in all branches of the University who wish to enter for any of the above events. To compete it is not necessary that a man be signed up for track, nor that he be technically eligible for the track team.
Medals in each of the events will be given by the Harvard Athletic Association. Handicaps will be assigned by Coach D. F. O'Connell '16 for the distance run, by E. A. Teschner '17 in the sprints, and in the hurdles, by C. R. Haners '23. Competitors may enter their names for any of the events by signing the sheets on the bulletin board in the east wing of the Locker Building.
