In the running events of the fall interdormitory track meet held on the Freshman track yesterday afternoon the Smith team broke its tie with Gore in the final event and won by the slim margin of one point, 29 to 28, while Standish lagged behind with but six points.
Throughout the meet, Gore and Smith struggled hard for the ascendency, but when the last event began, the score stood 24 to 24 for the two teams. Then in the last event,--the 140-yards low hurdles,--Paulsen, the former Hill School track captain, streaked ahead of his two Gore Hall rivals to break the tape with a time of 17.1 and make the score of the meet 29 to 28 in favor of Smith.
Of the other performances of the meet those of Magoun in the 4.40 and Stackpole in the 880 were the most creditable.
